The 10 original Xbox games we want to play on Xbox One

The 10 original Xbox games we want to play on Xbox One

But it's just possible the company is being insane like a fox.

That being said, the tech titan confirmed several games for the Xbox One X console. Judging by Forza Motorsport 7's system requirements, this game should be relatively well optimised too.

There are lots of games that are exclusive to either Xbox or Sony Playstations.

The Xbox boss exemplified the Elite Control for Xbox One that debuted a year ago. Thus far, Microsoft has approximately sold 26 million Xbox One consoles.

At Microsoft's E3 press conference, it was announced that original Xbox games would soon be available to play on your Xbox One along with the Xbox 360 backwards compatible titles.

Apparently though, there's a method to Microsoft's madness. The Xbox One X is a much bigger investment and you'll really want to weigh the pros and cons before you commit your hard earned cash.

It's an opinion shared by ArsTechnica, which says that the new console's added graphics power is "noticeable", but won't "wow" users in the same way that the transition from standard to high definition visuals did. There are definitely people who have a 4K TV and who are itching for a game console that can take advantage of it.

Our first party is a critical part of that equation.

If you are a sane person, you are probably asking "WTF WHY?!".

Xbox One X is powered by eight core CPU at 2.3GHz with 1TB and is backed up with 12GB of GDDR5 RAM at 6.8GHz and with 6teraflop GPU at 1,172 MHz.

Good luck getting a hapless Best Buy or Walmart employee to explain which one "the 4K one" is to someone who isn't a NeoGAF member.

Xbox One X will be launched in Saudi Arabia during 2017 for SR1,899 ($505). That's because the components required to power the level of graphical fidelity the box offers are expensive. However, on this front, PC's are easier to upgrade even thought it might prove you to be costly.

But that's not unusual.

"If you're a consumer looking to get into this generation of consoles, Xbox One S is a great console for you", he continued.

So when the Xbox One X was announced, most figured they'd learned their lesson.

The PlayStation 5, no matter when it arrives, is said to be the powerful gaming console ever built, with more than 10 teraflops of graphical power.
