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).
"I don't want to get into all the numbers, but in aggregate you should think about the hardware part of the console business is not the money-making part of the business", Spencer said.
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. He was also asked about the UI for Xbox One X and whether it will be the same as the standard Xbox One.
Microsoft has announced 22 titles which will be playable on the Xbox One X.
It is fine to market your console as the most powerful in the world, IT IS the most powerful in the world. Although you can capture videos at 4K/60 fps on the Xbox One X. The console also supports 4K games, which is now at the top edge of video game technology. The console is the most expensive of this generation for its capabilities, however, it seems that the company has not contemplated making money with this system.
The Xbox One X has a graphics processing unit (GPU) that is about 40 percent faster compared to the PlayStation 4 Pro, Spencer claims.
"If you just look at the specs of what this box is, it's in a different league than any other console that's out there", the Xbox boss added.
For Microsoft, which will not be making any money off of each Xbox One X sold, it is hoping that the power of the console is enough to attract more players into the Xbox platform.
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.
