The Xbox One X: The most powerful Console?

The Xbox One X: The most powerful Console?

Sony have made steps to counter this of course, immediately announcing a price reduction for the PS4 Pro after the Xbox One X breakdown, however, there are still many aspects of Microsoft's console that prove it worthy of investment.

At $500, the Xbox One X is arguably at the limit of what consumers would be willing to pay for a new games console in 2017. In a recent interview with Business Insider, Xbox boss Phil Spencer admitted that the company stands to make no money out of the sales.

"On the Halo and Gears thing specifically, I was proud that we were able to show off 42 games and not show Halo and Gears, 'cause people know we are working on Halo and Gears". Firstly, there are rights issues with bringing original games back and, secondly, emulating original games is apparently more hard than 360 games. Hopefully we get some figures soon after launch as to how much the Xbox One X costs to manufacture. "The box looks the way it looks with the numbers it has at the price we sell it for because that's what it took to deliver on our promises". "The issue I think is that overall, that's a fairly small market".

"The fact that somebody would make an assertion that somehow we're not keeping Minecraft players safe, I found, not only from a Microsoft perspective but from a game industry perspective...." But what good is great hardware without continual great software to play on it?

"That is important and we are going to invest".

The Xbox One X has an AMD graphics card that boasts 6 teraflops of performance and a 12 GB GDDR5 RAM, which are certainly bigger than the PS4 Pro's 4.2 teraflops GPU and 8 GB GDDR5 RAM.

Mexico fully deserved Portugal point, says Osorio
After an explosive opening period, the second was a much tamer affair as both teams squandered half chances as the tempo dropped. Mexico equalized eight minutes later through a Javier Javier Hernandez diving header after poor defending by the Portuguese.
