MS isn’t making money on Xbox One X sales

“Yes there is an optional stand for vertical!”

On that note, Xbox might want to pay special attention to the Nintendo Switch since one analyst says that the portable console is its biggest threat, Forbes reports.

It is therefore possible each Xbox One X hardware sale generates a loss, but at best it is breaking even. All the talk is of pure performance – as it’s pitched squarely at the core gamer – but within a box many times smaller than most gaming PCs. It will come with a 4K HDMI cable, power cable, wireless Xbox One X controller, one month of access to Xbox Game Pass and a 14-day Xbox Live Gold trial, if you’re interested in playing online. Worldwide pricing is £449, €499, CA$599, and AU$649.

At Microsoft’s E3 press conference, it was announced that original Xbox games would soon be available to play on your Xbox One along with the Xbox 360 backwards compatible titles.

“Our team of engineers are working hard to bring some of your favourite original xbox games to today’s Xbox One library, including a fan favourite that I’m asked about often by the community: Crimson Skies – and it looks great”. In other words, the Xbox One games and all its accessories will be compatible with the Xbox One X. And a priori, this brand new Xbox will not have a specific repository: all “One” games will run on all platforms, but with a graphic boost visible on the new machine. We look forward to seeing what games are announced.

While the Wildcard are less interested in the application of 4K, they are keen to make some changes to the console version of ARK Survival Evolved. We’re focusing on Xbox One S and Xbox One X and the games you’re going to play.

While it’s still a bitter deal for players, I can now see Sony’s point, but I also agree with Spencer that it’s not a good deal for anyone.

With PlayStation 4 enjoying a comfortable sales lead over the Xbox One, there was more pressure on Microsoft to deliver evidence that it can turn the tide.
