Xbox Backwards Compatibility - Microsoft deal big blow to Xbox One owners

From what we can tell, it will offer more power than the PS4 Pro rival.

This comes on the back of several analysts saying that the Xbox One X's price point of $649 AUD is too much. The game console has an eight-core AMD CPU clocked at 2.35GHz. Destiny 2, Call of Duty: WWII and Federation Internationale de Football Association 18 are all games that haven't yet been confirmed to look best on One X. 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. "True 4K, all the features you saw in the briefing at $499, that value proposition is great".

Speaking to TechRadar, Ybarra the Xbox ecosystem is all about giving people options. "The majority of our consoles that are sold next year will be [Xbox One] S. That has always been the plan", Spencer said.

A new game called "Metro: Exodus" takes advantage of the Xbox One X's processing power to dazzle with 4K visuals (alongside a mountain of visual detail).

When assessing their major wins, Federer clearly benefitted from having a few years before the advent of the "Big Four" as we know it.

Along with these announcements, the division's head Phil Spencer confirmed that the original Xbox games will be coming to the console under its backwards compatibility program. You see, according to Microsoft the "enhanced" tag won't mean the same thing for each game. "The games are old, were built on a different architecture and can not be simply imported to the new one", said Spencer.

"Frankly, I loved the fact I didn't have to bring out "Gears" and "Halo" just to say, hey". The game rights which have to be secured is a huge problem as a lot of studios may or may not be available right now.

"I don't want to get into all the numbers, but in aggregate you should think about the hardware part of the console business is not the money-making part of the business", Spencer said. "A lot of our games, nearly 20 of them in the show, are going to be on Windows too".
