Xbox One X vs. PS4 Pro - Power and Hardware Comparison

"It's the same with Xbox One X. We've been meeting with developers, you heard EA on our stage saying they're going to optimize this because they want to show consumers the most fantastic version of their games, and the Xbox One X is going to deliver that for them".

Imagine yourself, if you will, an uninformed parent /consumer standing in front of a shelf stacked with PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X consoles.

"We have the 4K blu-ray drive inside the S console".

It's hard to believe that Microsoft was able to make the latest generation Xbox so compact, and yet still so much more powerful.

During the presentation, Spencer also announced that the device has 12GB of RAM, compared to 8GB of PS4 Pro, and 6 teraflops graphics processing power compared to Sony's 4.12.

The Xbox One X debuts worldwide on November 7, will you be ordering one or nah? Is the PlayStation 4 Pro a worthy rival to the Xbox One X or is it meant to challenge the Xbox One S? "The majority of our consoles that are sold next year will be [Xbox One] S. That has always been the plan", Spencer said.

Other titles launching with the console include Crackdown 3 and Sea of Thieves other big games revealed were Metro Exodus, PC gaming favorites making their console debuts Player Unknown's Battlegrounds and State of Decay 2 and Assassin's Creed Origins which will take place in Ancient Egypt.

"Halo and Gears are both in good hands, and I'm going to pick exactly the word you used: I don't want to tease anybody", Spencer said.

The company also announced 42 new titles at the E3 event which will be compatible with all the existing Xbox models but will work the "best" with Xbox One X, as it will enable the 4k experience.

"Frankly, I loved the fact I didn't have to bring out "Gears" and "Halo" just to say, hey". People know we have Gears and Halo in our portfolio, and we're working on other things that aren't on this list.

But it seems even the cost of the Xbox One X that has everyone gawking isn't even breaking even for Microsoft.
