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

Many hoped that after the successful launch of Xbox 360 backwards compatibility on Xbox One that Microsoft would extend this support to the original Xbox. Xbox also revealed that "Gears of War 4", "Forza Horizon 3", "Minecraft", "Resident Evil 7", "Final Fantasy 15", "Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands", "Rocket League" and dozens of other popular Xbox One games will receive free updates to take full advantage of the power of Xbox One X. The Xbox One X is the more powerful console when compared to the PS4 Pro - and for $100 more, it absolutely has to be.

Phil Spencer, head of Microsoft's Xbox division, said the console would be able to play games at 4K resolution while the system would run games at 60 frames per second (fps).

Spencer went on to tout the Xbox One X's features, including its fast processor and higher-end graphics chip, which he says, should deliver better graphical quality in video games. Xbox One X will be offering 6 teraflops (trillion floating point operations per second), in comparison to only 4.2 offered by PS4 Pro.

You can get the full story here at BusinessInsider. It now appears if you pre-order Xbox One X you will also be getting a one month Xbox Game Pass trial.

The $499 price of the Xbox One X makes it the most expensive current-generation console in the market, with some gamers claiming that the price is too steep.
