Xbox One X preview

Phil Spencer head of Xbox announces backwards compatibility to play all Xbox 360 games on the Xbox One during game publisher Microsoft's Xbox media briefing before the opening day of the Electronic Entertainment Expo or E3 in Los Angeles

"We're focusing on Xbox One S and Xbox One X and the games you're going to play", Spencer said.

During an interview with Business Insider, Phil Spencer, head of Xbox division, gave a simple "no" when the media asked if sales of Xbox One X will generate profits for Microsoft.

In addition to a more powerful GPU, the Xbox One X offers higher bandwidth compared to the PlayStation 4 Pro. It now appears if you pre-order Xbox One X you will also be getting a one month Xbox Game Pass trial.

The $499 price of the Xbox One X makes it the most expensive current-generation console in the market, with some gamers claiming that the price is too steep. PlayStation is on the other end of the spectrum, releasing their own VR headset and spending a good portion of Monday night's press conference announcing new games for the headset. "The majority of our consoles that are sold next year will be [Xbox One] S. That has always been the plan", Spencer said. "True 4K, all the features you saw in the briefing at $499, that value proposition is great".

As for the design it seems that despite the powerful interior it is smallest and slimmer than the Xbox One and One S.

So far, only two original Xbox games have been confirmed for the Xbox One's backwards compatibility library so far.

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

Microsoft showed off dozens of games at E3, ranging from the super-slick racing simulator Forza Motorsport 7 to the rollicking, social pirate game Sea of Thieves to Anthem, an astonishing-looking sci-fi action game developed by BioWare in Edmonton, creators of the award-winning Mass Effect franchise. "If you're a high-end gamer and you want the absolute best experience possible there's no place you'll find a better performance to price ratio than Xbox One X", he said.
