Microsoft Announces Xbox One X, How Does it Compare to PS4 Pro?

Microsoft Announces Xbox One X, How Does it Compare to PS4 Pro?

Sony PlayStation 4 has dominated the latest generation of consoles, outselling Xbox One by 2-to-1, according to industry trackers.

The One X appears set to deliver on 4K visuals, but despite the machine's capability of supporting virtual reality gaming, there was very little mention of this during the launch event this weekend and no demonstrations of use of VR headsets, leading commentators to wonder whether Microsoft has put its VR strategy on the back burner. The company did announce 42 new games to go with the console, however.

The Xbox One X will launch on November 7 for $499. 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. Of course, this could all change when the system releases and brings its incredible power to the table, but the initial signs suggest this may not be the turning point of the generation that Microsoft was hoping for. More than 30 third-party games will receive free updates to 4K resolution, as well as Microsoft exclusives including Gears of War 4 and Minecraft. Microsoft has also released a "lite" version of the Xbox One, the Xbox One S, which is now available for $399.

Sony makes a library of videogames available as part of a subscription service for PlayStation consoles.

Last year, Sony rolled out a similar console refresh through the PS4 Pro, which is priced at $100 less than Xbox One X. We did not build this to be a low price box.

Biggest question now lies here will the Xbox One X be VR compatible? It is unclear if all of those will be carried over to the Xbox One.

The new Xbox One X, known previously as Project Scorpio, is "the most powerful console ever made" says Microsoft. "I think it is a hard sell at two times the S price".
