"The money-making part is in selling games", he said, showing that Microsoft will rely on titles to drive up its profit from the Xbox One X.
I look at [PS4] Pro as more of a competitor to [Xbox One] S than I do to Xbox One X. This is a true 4K console. Gears of War 4, Forza Horizon 3, Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands and many other popular Xbox One games will receive free updates to take full advantage of the power of Xbox One X. Xbox will also expand the Xbox One backward compatibility library to include original Xbox classics, starting with fan favorite Crimson Skies.
"It's all very slick, it's all very polished but we've got to get some people on it playing".
"As for a showcase, I don't really think it hit the mark".
"When I think about techniques to somehow manufacture a 4K screen like what some other consoles try to do, this is different than that", Spencer said.
"Frankly, I loved the fact I didn't have to bring out "Gears" and "Halo" just to say, hey". I want developers to be able to build portable applications, which is why we've been focusing on UWP for games and even apps that want to run on multiple devices. This is particularly important for rendering high res textures, since both consoles aim to offer 4K quality. It's a great line-up of games, respecting the content that you buy from us.
Microsoft executive Dave McCarthy wanted to defend the increase in the price of Xbox One X, reassuring customers that the hardware specs of this latest console warrant the $499.00 price tag. "Put the disc in, downloads game, play".
"The gaming industry is going to change more in the next five years than it has done in the past 30". The console also supports 4K games, which is now at the top edge of video game technology. "Having more power gives us more freedom to be more creative".
