Sony's Ryan on Switch, Xbox One X, and defending Europe

Posted June 20, 2017

A lot of work and modification would have been needed in order to add Achievements to original Xbox backward compatible games.

The world of gaming is getting all heated up as Microsoft just announced their latest console - the XBOX One X. Leave it to PC World to answer the value question in the best way possible: by attempting to build a 4K-capable gaming PC for the price of an Xbox One X. Here's how it went down.

That's why Microsoft's Xbox One X, retailing for $500, appears to be a risk for Microsoft. I would say that the Xbox One X $500 price is justified. Formerly codenamed "Project Scorpio", the console's true name is the Xbox One X.

According to Spencer, head of Xbox, the company recently signed exclusives that won't be ready for 2-3 years. The One S comes in white variant only, meanwhile, more likely the One X will be available in black only for the time being.

Microsoft's E3 conference featured plenty of games spanning different genres, but the focal point of the show was their upcoming hardware upgrade. The game will be playable, again, on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and the PC.

Aesthetically, the Xbox One X isn't much to look at - it's essentially a smooth black box.

Microsoft also claim the Xbox One X is "40 per cent more powerful than any other console".

"Rocket League" is now one of the most popular competitive games available today.

While the PS4 Pro has 8 GB of RAM the Xbox One X has 12 GB of GDDR5 memory.

While there's no questioning the profound impact Halo: Combat Evolved had on the gaming industry, Bungie's integration of Xbox Live with Halo 2 turned the already stellar offline experience into an online entertainment phenomenon. "I don't think we want to see the death of games that have a beginning, a middle, and an end".

You can actually get an idea of what super-sampling will look like on the Xbox One X, as Sony's 4K-enabled PlayStation 4 Pro console also uses super-sampling to make games look better on 1080p TVs.

"That is important and we are going to invest". The Nintendo Switch is dramatically lacking content, although this is set to change over time, given it is a newly released console., and those games that have been released were generally disappointing.

The Xbox One X is coming in at a price point that has never been seen before in the console marketplace, with the launch price being $499.
