Microsoft isn't making a profit with their new Xbox One X console

The Xbox One X, meanwhile, is aimed at the "high-end gamer", and it has a price point that reflects that.

In another news, Microsoft's Mike Ybarra revealed on Twitter the working of original Xbox backward compatibility is not going to be different than what we have seen with Xbox 360: Put Disc In, Download and Play. It's a more powerful Xbox One, that will play some games in "True" Native 4K, while others will use methods like reprojection and checkerboard rendering to fill a 2160p framebuffer. Even still, it's great to know that those of us who have been playing Xbox games since the beginning will be able to break out some of the old games again and play them on current hardware.

Eurogamer also asked Spencer why they didn't announce a "standout" first-party or exclusive game to have fans excited over the Xbox One X. The backwards compatibility program is expected to launch later this year with a couple more titles. More information on the games that will be added to the program will be coming in the near future, so be sure to stay tuned for that. Indeed, the custom Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) GPU in the newest Xbox can run at 6 teraflops, compared to the Sony console which comes with an AMD Polaris graphics card that is capable of running at 4.2 teraflops. The game rights which have to be secured is a huge problem as a lot of studios may or may not be available right now.

Phil Spencer had some details share on it but more technical aspects of Xbox games running on an emulator and how well they work is something we can not comment on at the moment.

Xbox One X won't be out until November this year. Destiny 2, Call of Duty: WWII and Federation Internationale de Football Association 18 are all games that haven't yet been confirmed to look best on One X.

The controller is compatible with the Xbox One, Xbox One S and the upcoming Xbox One X. It is now unknown if it will be compatible with PC upon release.
