Later, when asked if the console would be sold at a loss, Spencer chose to avoid the question with his words.

Ybarra replied back to a fan asking if the current Software Development Kit for the Xbox One X is complete or are they still working on it.

He was also asked about the UI for Xbox One X and whether it will be the same as the standard Xbox One. The price tag did come as a surprise to critics and a section of the gaming community, many expected Microsoft will go a bit hard on pricing Xbox One X and putting a $399 price tag against PlayStation 4 Pro (it's rival), even it means selling the box at loss. Consoles have historically failed at this price point, and consumers seem unwilling to accept anything over $399.

"I look at Pro as more of a competitor to S than I do to Xbox One X", Spencer told Eurogamer.

Xbox One X will not generate profits for Microsoft

Although the Xbox One X will indeed outperform the PS4 Pro, Microsoft kind of lacked some major first-party AAA titles during its E3 2017 announcement. However, talking after the show during an interview, Phil Spencer confirmed that they won't be releasing too many games from the original Xbox because it is a huge technical challenge they have to overcome. "The money-making part is in selling games", said the Xbox boss.

The Xbox One X has a graphics processing unit (GPU) that is about 40 percent faster compared to the PlayStation 4 Pro, Spencer claims.

"Frankly, I loved the fact I didn't have to bring out "Gears" and "Halo" just to say, hey. A lot of our games, nearly 20 of them in the show, are going to be on Windows too". "People want to know what the roadmap in the future looks like, and that's my job to deliver it to them".
