MS isn't making money on Xbox One X sales

Microsoft's reasoning seems to be that any gamer who'd want the Xbox One X probably already has a pretty beefy gaming machine - which costs a lot of money. Also, we know that Xbox One X will not generate profits for Microsoft. "One of the reasons I like bringing the original Xbox compatibility, the 360 compatibility back, is because I want. some of those old games should also get played in this time", he said.

That being said, the tech titan confirmed several games for the Xbox One X console. And this opens up a wealth of possibilities for certain titles to shine again - yes, even you, Blinx. Players will remain unconvinced that the announced games for the console are not enough for this year.

When Xbox fans learned that titles from the original system would be coming their way on the backwards compatibility system, you could collectively hear a bunch of 30-something's heads explode across the country. Yet to experience 4K, one would of course have to own a 4K-capable TV or monitor, and without which, the Xbox One X's marquee feature basically becomes pointless.

But still, at the back of my mind, I was thinking of it as a normal game because I didn't want to take the unnecessary pressure. An unperturbed Kohli and new batsman Pandya played freely and started knocking the ball out of the ground.

The site did two test builds based on compatible components that all add up to a PC capable of 4K gaming at 30 frames-per-second (in most cases). And I think that's because Microsoft hasn't necessarily been reinventing, they've been refining and making it more powerful.

So what they're basically getting at is a strategy whereby selling a lower number of consoles initially really isn't a big deal, just as long as these select gamers then go out and buy a ton of games. At the price that the XBOX One X comes in at, this was highly expected.

You may remember that Microsoft past year announced the Xbox One S, a $249 console that can also show games in 4K, though not natively - meaning it's not quite as fluid.

A new poll shows the public is overwhelmingly opposed to 'Hard Brexit'
Diplomats have prepared for negotiations while departments have prepared legislation for parliament. Some MPs within the Conservatives are now pressing the Prime Minister to pursue a softer Brexit.

"Developers are completely incentivised to give you the best experience they can". On top of that, let's say that games like Panzer Dragoon Orta or Burnout 3: Takedown get introduced to the program (which we hope they do).

Microsoft unveiled the Xbox One X during the recent E3 event.
