Microsoft Defends Xbox One X's $499 Pricepoint

These games are playable on various consoles, of which the most famous are the Microsoft Xbox, Sony PlayStation, Nintendo Game Cube, and Nintendo Wii.

Sony's PS4 Pro comes out with a powerful CPU too, and is just marginally behind that of the XBOX One X. The console comes out with an octa-cored CPU that is clocked in at 2.1 GHz. "You're gonna know 'I want the 4K one, ' [you're gonna know] by price or bundles or color; I think people will figure out which console they're buying".

That being said, the tech titan confirmed several games for the Xbox One X console.

You might think it's insane that Microsoft is once again introducing a new game console with a $500 price. The reason being that those who are hankering after this kind of premium performance are also the kinds that are more likely to spend a fortune on a stack of games.

Anyone who chooses to download their PS4 or Xbox One games will be used to seeing download sizes ranging from 35-50GB.

His talent is likely enough to keep any legal trouble from changing his draft stock, but it should be kept in mind. If Fultz goes to Philly, the Celtics may end up acquiring a late lottery pick rather than another top five pick.

Spencer announced that Xbox will expand the Xbox One backward compatibility library of almost 400 popular Xbox 360 games to include Xbox Original classics, starting with fan favourite "Crimson Skies". It's not on sale yet but we expect retailers to start taking Xbox One X pre-orders in the near future.

Instead, a host of brand new titles were revealed on the same day as the upcoming super console Xbox One X. In a time like this, a very pleasant news has arrived about a new video game console manufacturer and a new competing console.

"We're gonna sell more Xbox One S consoles next year than we will Xbox One X", he said. So in that world, I have to show them an experience that's demonstrably better. On the other hand, the Xbox One S is no slouch, however, it's using similar technology to the original Xbox One that was released in 2013. We will have been in the market for a year with PS4 Pro, and that thing also is selling faster than we can make them.

And there's no denying that the games look great running on 4K. If your Xbox One or even Xbox 360 is on its last legs and you can't justify the price of the Xbox One X, that's probably your best option. When looking at this console in the context of what's out right now, I still think $500 is a lot to pay for prettier games, even if they are much, much prettier.
