Playful's Paul Bettner says Xbox One X is like a high-end PC

Playful's Paul Bettner says Xbox One X is like a high-end PC

Ryan reckons video game developers won't have time generally to make two game versions for both gaming systems.

A new console is being released that will join the likes of the Sony PlayStation 4, Microsoft's Xbox One and Nintendo's Switch and 3DS handhelds.

With the launch of the Xbox One X, Microsoft is offering a middle ground between the traditional convenience of console and the power of a PC. "Everyone shouldn't spend $150 on a controller", Xbox executive Phil Spencer said in a recent interview with Giant Bomb.

So what they're basically getting at is a strategy whereby selling a lower number of consoles initially really isn't a big deal, just as long as these select gamers then go out and buy a ton of games.

Xbox One X will hit the market on November 7.

Ybarra reiterated that Xbox wanted to give gamers the choice and they were merely providing options since they also have the Xbox One S that "has things like Game Pass which lets you have 100+ games for a small monthly fee".

For this Weekend Open Forum, we want to know what you think of the Xbox One X. Are you excited by the prospect and intend to pre-order one the second they become available?

Darkest Dungeon - The Crimson Court comes to PS4 on June 19, followed by Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood on June 20 and Get Even on PS4 and Xbox One.

Microsoft is touting Forza 7 as one of its flagship Xbox One games as well as being an Xbox Play Anywhere title hence the Windows Store listing.

Microsoft is pretty certain there's a good market for its new Xbox One X game machine, despite its high price point.

Recently, Ark: Survival Evolved developer also compared the game to the NVIDIA 1070 graphics card but was a little confused on the memory because the console has 12 GB GDDR5 and graphics cards don't have that much.

We were expecting the company to announce a sudden price cut to cause a damage to its rival Microsoft, but the company didn't do so at E3 this year. Connecting two different closed networks is much more complicated so we have to work with developers and publishers to understand what it is they are trying to accomplish.

In the end, the Xbox One X isn't built for everyone and if you should upgrade is really about personal preference.

Certainly, the Xbox one offers a unique premium experience.
