However that's not where Microsoft wants it to end because speaking to PC Gamer, Xbox chief Phil Spencer seemed to be pretty open to the idea of bringing Xbox emulation onto the PC. Broadcast for the first time in 4K UHD on Mixer, Xbox showcased a record 42 games in its briefing including 22 with console exclusivity from creators large and small.
In addition to a more powerful GPU, the Xbox One X offers higher bandwidth compared to the PlayStation 4 Pro. A host of these titles will be enhanced to run in true 4K, and many will be available at Xbox One X launch.
Meanwhile, CNET reported that Xbox head Phil Spencer has confirmed that despite its conspicuous absence during the launch event, virtual reality will still be part of the Xbox One X's future.
Xbox One X will retail for $499 (£449 in the UK) this fall, which is $100 (£78) more expensive than the PS4 Pro.
So if you pre-order Xbox One X you get to not only enjoy a 1 month Xbox Game Pass trial, but you also get to get your hands on a 14 day Xbox Live Gold trial as well.
"There are many people that come in and just want an affordable console that plays all of the games that we've shown here, plays them with great HDR support".
When asked about how this difference will have an impact on multiplatform games and whether they will perform significantly better on Xbox One X, Spencer added: "The capability is in this box to make the difference extremely significant". The system will be capable of 4K/HDR gaming with Dolby Atmos Support as will feature a 4K Blu-Ray Drive.
Xbox empowers game developers around the world to create different types of games for every type of player. Xbox 360 backward compatibility library now have close to 400 games, and it is getting bigger and better with each passing month.
