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

Phil Spencer, head of Xbox, announced at E3 that every game created across the Xbox One family would play better on the Xbox One X. According to Spencer, the new console will feature better textures, smoother frame rates and faster load times. When asked to clarify if this means Microsoft is taking a loss on each unit sold, Spencer responded by saying "I didn't answer it that way".

In a recent interview with Business Insider, Spencer confirmed with a simple "no" that the company will not be making a profit off of initial hardware sales (the cost of components inevitably comes down and eventually they will, but for now at least, there's no profit).

The fact that Microsoft is not making a profit on the Xbox One X now, however, could not be considered surprising at all.

Spencer stated that Xbox fans should keep their expectations in check regarding the library of Original Xbox Games coming to Xbox One because only a select few Original Xbox Games will be available to backward compatibility program because of Rights issue And Emulation difficulty (technically it's a bit difficult).

When it comes to the central processing unit (CPU), the PlayStation 4 has a slight lag compared to the Xbox One X as well.

Xbox One X Price Too Steep?

So if you pre-order Xbox One X you get to not only enjoy a 1 month Xbox Game Pass trial, but you also get to get your hands on a 14 day Xbox Live Gold trial as well. The console also supports 4K games, which is now at the top edge of video game technology.

The Xbox One X will arrive on November 7 with a $499 price tag, which is $100 more than the PlayStation 4 Pro.

Microsoft has finally launched their ambitious bid to claim the lead in 4K gaming with the launch of Microsoft Xbox One X. Previously known as Project Scorpio, Xbox One X promises 40% more power in terms of graphics. "The X will have even more trouble because the S is at $249 and so is the PS4".
