Sony Has No Plans To PS4 Pro Price Drop At The Moment

Otherwise, it would have been a stupid move for a firm like Microsoft to stop pre-ordering of their new console.

But it's just possible the company is being insane like a fox. Perhaps the most important of the releases was just a teaser.

"It requires real deep work", Microsoft's head of Xbox Phil Spencer told me in an interview this week during the annual E3 video game trade show.

Whether the Xbox One X also extends the entire "One" generation is yet to be seen, but it's undoubtedly a powerful and impressive piece of hardware, and a big step forward for the Xbox brand.

Cross-platform play would allow gamers on both consoles to play with one another online. The big missing part is Sony's PlayStation 4.

During the Microsoft E3 briefing, the tech giant reveals its console's official name, the Xbox One X. The Redmond, Washington based tech titan also revealed that the Xbox One X gaming console will be available on November 7 with a $499 price tag.

But as Spencer indicates, there's a method to Microsoft's apparent madness. "I don't think that's the way consoles are going to go".

Furthermore, hugely popular games such as Rocket League, Elder Scrolls: Skyrim and Federation Internationale de Football Association 18 are set to appear on the Switch too, boosting the appeal of the console even further. While Spencer didn't explicitly mention Halo 5 or Halo: The Master Chief Collection, these are the only two games that were released by 343 Industries so it is possible that we might hear about a potential patch and support for these games for the Xbox One X soon. "And I'd love for "Minecraft" players to get to play 'Minecraft'".

You and your significant other are no longer seeing other people. "To me this isn't something that's gonna die, the experience is way too immersive, it is going to happen".

All the titles now optimised for the Xbox One X, including Forza Motorsport 7, "looked" and "played great", the site reports.

The ability (or requirement) to sign into another console's online infrastructure through a rival console is unprecedented but, if true, could be the start of further cross-platform collaboration between Nintendo and Microsoft in the future.

Things are looking good for Nintendo right now, following the successful launch of the Switch in March, which became the company's fastest-selling console.

It will launch on one console as well as on PC, with other consoles coming at a later date. The company won't be making any money from selling Xbox One X consoles. Indeed, the Xbox One X actually looks like a bargain compared to what you'd have to pay for a PC that has similar capabilities. The news comes in the wake of Microsoft announcing that it would be adding backward compatibility for the original Xbox to Xbox One.

But that's not unusual.

Stuff like that can be fixed, and would make a huge difference for literally millions of game players. The company says that Pro purchases now make up about 20% of all PlayStation 4 sales.

From where he's sitting, though, that wouldn't be a problem.
