Critical Mistakes Microsoft Made During Their E3 2017 Conference

Critical Mistakes Microsoft Made During Their E3 2017 Conference

First of all, Spencer fully admits that the new Xbox One X is going to be a niche console. Surprise, it's the Xbox One X!

As Kotaku notes, the Xbox One X is indeed a powerful gaming console and one that hardcore fans might absolutely love. Unlike the Xbox One S, the Xbox One X will come in black - although it looks very like the white console in shape and design, as you can see above.

The X has 22 "console launch exclusives" including Crackdown3, Forza Motorsport 7, and Sea of Thieves.

The Xbox One X will be ready for global release on November 7, according to Xbox boss Phil Spencer.

Indeed, if you compare the Xbox One X to a comparable gaming PC, its $500 price starts to look like a bargain. The PS4 PRo produces 4.2 Teraflops running at 911MHz.

Nicknamed "The Duke", the controller will be compatible with the entire Xbox One family, namely Xbox One, Xbox One S and Xbox One X, as well as Windows 10 PCs. "Where you might've had to navigate the internet before to go to a creator's website to download their pack, figure out how to get it imported - now, they're available right in the market".

Microsoft may have had a decent E3 showcase, but the price of the Xbox One X - despite its superior power - still left people with memories of the Xbox One reveal. The Xbox One, while highly regarded by many, is estimated to have undersold the Sony PlayStation 4, its biggest competitor, almost two to one. Nevertheless, this version will be different from the PC version, which will be then known as "Minecraft: Java Edition", the only one to support mods from the gaming community. There will even be backwards compatibility with some games launched for the original Xbox.

Microsoft's latest console will also feature a Ultra HD Blu-ray drive for 4K movies. The extra power of the Xbox One X will hopefully present much less stark compromises in performance, but it will ultimately depend on each game's use of the system's hardware. However what wasn't confirmed regarding the game was that whether it will run at "true 4K" resolution or a different rendering solution.

Last Sunday, Xbox head Phil Spencer finally delivered one of the most anticipated presentations of E3 2017, and so far it seems that most of the comments have been positive.

    Don't expect the Xbox One X to hit 4K/60 in every game, though 4K/30 should likely be an achievable goal across the board. Last year, Sony rolled out a similar console refresh through the PS4 Pro, which is priced at $100 less than Xbox One X .
