Microsoft isn't making a profit with their new Xbox One X console

Phil Spencer head of Xbox announces backwards compatibility to play all Xbox 360 games on the Xbox One during game publisher Microsoft's Xbox media briefing before the opening day of the Electronic Entertainment Expo or E3 in Los Angeles Xbox One X: Microsoft's Gaming Comeback or Just Another PS4 Pro?

It was a great addition because you don't have to have a working old generation console and it worked seamlessly on the new Xbox One console. It offers an 8-core processor that clocks at 2.3 GHz.

The Xbox One X, Microsoft's new premium console, will support virtual reality despite early reports that it wouldn't, according to an interview with Xbox head Phil Spencer.

Nevertheless, the current take is that VR support will be available on Xbox One X, and will be a part of Xbox's future. He revealed that streaming on Xbox One X is limited to 720p/1080p at 60 fps since 4K requires a lot of bandwidth.

Definitely, the Xbox One X is going to offer more power than the PS4 Pro. This is particularly important for rendering high res textures, since both consoles aim to offer 4K quality. "If you just look at the specs of what this box is, it's in a different league than any other console that's out there". Without going into the numbers, Spencer further explained that hardware section of the console business is not the "money-making" part, it's the games section. "A lot of our games, nearly 20 of them in the show, are going to be on Windows too". It remains to be seen just how many they are able to bring to the program, but it isn't going to be anywhere close to the almost 400 Xbox 360 games that are now available. "It's the same with Xbox One X. We've been meeting with developers, you heard EA on our stage saying they're going to optimize this because they want to show consumers the most wonderful version of their games, and the Xbox One X is going to deliver that for them". Example of this is PlayStation 3 and Wii U, although Nintendo assured that they would sell Switch with profits. "We had 42 games, 22 of them with console exclusivity that I could put on-stage that all are games where you could see the dates for them and when they're coming", Spencer said.
