Microsoft reckons PS4 Pro isn't an Xbox One X rival

Microsoft reckons PS4 Pro isn't an Xbox One X rival

Phil Spencer, head of Xbox, unveils the Xbox One X at E3 in Los Angeles.

Aiming at the hearts of gamers, Microsoft also showed off 42 coming games, with 22 titles being tailored for exclusive play on Xbox One consoles.

Microsoft just revealed its new Xbox console, and it will be slightly more affordable in Canada than in the U.S. But the retail price is still higher than similar products from its competitors.

The Xbox One X presents a major power upgrade over the Xbox One and Xbox One S, with a jump that markedly exceeds the PS4 Pro's processing improvement over the PlayStation 4.

My initial reaction when seeing the Xbox One X for the first time was how compact the chassis looked and this was also confirmed by Choudhry who claimed it was the "smallest Xbox console ever".

However, this feature is one of the many issues the new console has right now. The less powerful Xbox One S also supports HDR.

The tech giant says the Xbox One X will launch on November 7 at $499.

In case you have missed the unveiling of Xbox One X by Microsoft, here is a recap. These stats alone put Microsoft' new offering ahead of the PS4 Pro. Though there haven't been many games announced as part of the program, the simple fact that users will eventually get to play old-school Xbox games is exciting.

All existing Xbox One games will be compatible with the newest console, and games which have not been produced at 4K resolution can be "scaled up" to improve the visuals. The reasoning behind this is that their team believes VR is much more suited on PC, rather than being enabled in a gaming console. It's going to be there on launch day for Xbox One X, which will be a great showcase for the box. [.] There's not a ton of work developers are having to do to get to 4K, and then they can spend the extra headroom they have and time to flawless the game they want to build.

The backward compatibility support will basically work the way the Xbox 360 emulation now works on the Xbox One.
