The 6 Best Indie Games at Xbox's E3 2017 Press Conference

The 6 Best Indie Games at Xbox's E3 2017 Press Conference

The Xbox One X is priced at $500 in the USA, which is a full $100 more than the console it will likely get most frequently compared to, PlayStation 4 Pro.

Indeed, Spencer said he saw Sony's PS4 Pro as a "competitor" to the One S rather than the X when asked about the $100/£100 price gap between each platform holder's high-end console offering.

"If you just look at the specs of what this box is, it's in a different league than any other console that's out there", said Phil.

All that graphics processing power should make for smooth 4K game play, and Microsoft lauded the ability to upscale 1080p Xbox One games to 4K.

Sony's PlayStation 4 has dominated the market when it comes to the latest generation of consoles, outselling Xbox One by two-to-one, according to industry trackers.

The differences between this new version of Xbox and the old are not staggering but Microsoft have covered this issue well.

One of the announcements that delighted fans at the E3 was the one about extending the backward compatibility programme for Xbox in order to include the original console too. "Getting the trademark for Scorpio is really hard", explains Spencer, "When we do names, you have to pick global names for things".

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.

When asked whether Xbox emulation could be in the cards for PC, Spencer was quick to answer in the affirmative.

Spencer was also asked about the possibility for an Xbox Game Pass-like service for PC.

Game play on 4K screens, whether on televisions or personal computer monitors, is expected to be among themes at E3 this week.

For the past few days, many respected outlets like CNET and The Wall Street Journal have been pushing out stories how virtual reality or mixed reality devices aren't coming to Xbox One X anymore. Third-party support's been great. This in essence puts the Xbox One X in a class of one.
