Microsoft’s Albert Penello on Xbox One’s “post-X” future

Microsoft's Albert Penello on Xbox One's "post-X" future

“Our Xbox One S will sell the most because most people are not into how many [teraflops] does this have versus someone else”.

Phil Spencer is back to talk about Xbox One X, the new “premium console” of Microsoft, explaining that it is not a product for all types of player. Crimson’s one of my favourites from the original Xbox – I thought it actually looked really good, it was one of the things, putting it on a 4k screen, I was a little anxious about how some of the old games would look.

The Xbox One X certainly has its merits. The game was running at dynamic 1080p with 60 fps but due to this, the resolution wasn’t consistent throughout the game. Xbox One X also offers the ultimate 4K entertainment package with 4K Ultra HD for Blu-ray X and streamed content, HDR support for gaming and video, and Dolby Atmos support.

Super Lucky’s Tale launches alongside the Xbox One X on November 7.

Sony’s Jim Ryan stated that the power advantage of the Xbox One X over the Playstation 4 Pro won’t be that evident when it rolls out this winter.

While the power of the Xbox One X could lead to exclusive titles that only the console can support in the future, there is now no game that will attract customers away from the console’s rivals. Second, the game console is small “and small means custom”, Gilbert added. The company won’t be making any money from selling Xbox One X consoles.

First of all, Sony’s console is already available in the market, whereas the Xbox One X will not hit store shelves until later this year. Rumors suggest that Sony is also preparing the next-generation console, possibly dubbed the PlayStation 5, to take on the Xbox One X. According to the rumor mill, the Japan-based electronics giant will launch the PlayStation 5 or simply PS5 sometime in 2018.

Forza comes out October 3 for Xbox One and Windows 10. It even announced that original Xbox titles are coming to Xbox One backwards compatibility. It will eventually come out on PC and on other consoles.

“We get some interest from PC people who have been playing 4K games on their PCs now for awhile, and say, ‘Okay here’s a console that can play a true 4K game with a controller sitting on my couch”.
