Microsoft won't be making any money on the Xbox One X

Parmenio Sano | 19 Giugno, 2017, 04:15

However, hardware just isn't where console manufacturers make money anymore: Microsoft will instead be focusing on games and services like Xbox Live Gold and Game Pass to get the cash rolling in. It's kind of like saying that when a developer makes a PC game do they make it to a fixed low-end set, where there are all of these switches that people can go in and turn on... It is in short a pretty sweet deal and one which we might see appearing in future bundles as well.

Like Sony's $499 PlayStation 4 Pro, the Xbox One X is a sort of a half-step forward, meant to appeal to gamers who have upgraded to 4K HDR TVs and want gear that can keep up with their new toys.

The Xbox Backwards Compatibility for the Xbox One will drop later this year - but it will NOT be as extensive as Xbox 360 backwards compatibility lineup.

Put simply, Xbox's new premium offering has the ability to power games in native 4K, with an Ultra HD Blu-ray player, a feature Sony omitted from the Pro. And according to Microsoft it is the world's most powerful console. Example of this is PlayStation 3 and Wii U, although Nintendo assured that they would sell Switch with profits.


In terms of specs, Spencer definitely has a point. "This held back notion - I know that you're not unique in calling this out". "But I will say price is critical". He also said that he was spending a lot of time on Microsoft's first-party games, and that they've already "signed some things" that they haven't announced yet.

Conspicuous in their absence, however, were Microsoft's two biggest homegrown franchises, Halo and Gears of War.

Unbelievably, at $500, Microsoft isn't making any money on each box sold.

Still, not even a little Halo 6 tease? "The focus I had on this show was games you're going to get to play in the next year. A lot of our games, nearly 20 of them in the show, are going to be on Windows too".
