E3 2017: Microsoft isn't making a profit on the Xbox One X

Once the Xbox One X hits stores later this year, both Microsoft and Sony will have launched three flavors of their home game consoles.

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.

It was launched in November of that year with 104 Xbox 360 games supported to begin with. "Not only do we have the biggest cross-platform blockbusters on our platform, we've also scoured the world to bring our fans unique content from creative artists that capture the imagination".

Spencer gave two reasons for the smaller library of compatible original Xbox games on the Xbox One.

We'll find out more soon, but it's likely that there'll be a difference between some games that go big on graphical flourishes that only the Xbox One X can produce and others that just replicate their PS4 Pro patch.

The Xbox Backwards Compatibility for the Xbox One will drop later this year - but it will NOT be as extensive as Xbox 360 backwards compatibility lineup.

Spencer touted his console's superior GPU, CPU, RAM, and while those are facts, it is also a fact that Xbox One S is nowhere in the same league as PlayStation 4 Pro.

He said it was partly because it is more hard to tie up rights issues surrounding the old games. "The X will have even more trouble because the S is at $249 and so is the PS4". "Xbox One is still a great device for us; supporting HDR gaming and the 4K video and the 4K Blu-ray stuff".

One thing that wasn't talked about during the conference is how folks will be able to play local multiplayer for original Xbox games through system link.
