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

How does "The World's Most Powerful Console", according to Microsoft, compare to the PlayStation 4 Pro?

Xbox One X has been unveiled at the Electronic Entertainment Expo 2017, shedding its previous name as Project Scorpio.

The Xbox One X is the smallest and most powerful Xbox One ever made.

Some Grenfell residents had warned months ago fire safety issues at the tower meant that it was at risk of a "catastrophic" event. The bodies of 16 people have been recovered from the building and taken to a mortuary, he added, while the figure of 58 may rise.

Mike Ybarra recently gave an interview to TechRadar where he revealed some interesting details about Xbox One X. To start off, Ybarra compared the console to a $1,500 gaming machine.

"So that's the point that I love to say, 'What kind of gamer are you?' and let you decide what's best for you". "True 4K, all the features you saw in the briefing at $499, that value proposition is great".

Indeed. Much of the money that any platform holder makes is from software sales (that's why console games are more expensive than their counterparts on PC), and with Xbox One X this will be no different. Microsoft could soon be making money from Xbox One X sales, but how long that will take is now unclear. The game console has an eight-core AMD CPU clocked at 2.35GHz. It seems clear that Microsoft isn't anxious about that price gap between the two consoles since the company doesn't see them as direct competitors.

Jaromir Jagr's status in Florida and Joe Thornton's in San Jose could be decided before either becomes an unrestricted free agent. Letang, who underwent surgery for a herniated disc in his neck before the playoffs began, will be back for next season.

At around £100 more than the PS4 Pro, some feel the price of the Xbox One X is too high, but this price will still not make a profit for Microsoft.

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 was also asked about the UI for Xbox One X and whether it will be the same as the standard Xbox One. 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. "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.

Originally constructed in 1974, the residential tower block recently underwent a $13.2 million (£10.3 million) refurbishment. HMRC will stop communication with residents and will allow self-employed people extra time to make payments.
