Sony can't compete with the Xbox One X

What's more, even though it costs more than the PlayStation 4 Pro, you get something for your extra dollars, because the Xbox One X is technically more powerful than Sony's rival.

The Xbox One X is all set to come out near the holiday season on 7th November 2017 for $499.

Despite the new game machine's high price, Microsoft won't be making a profit from selling Xbox One X boxes, Phil Spencer, leader of the company's Xbox business, told Business Insider. While many are debating what those promises truly mean and whether we'll see the majority of games in Native 4K or checkerboard rendering, Microsoft's Xbox chief Phil Spencer believes the Xbox One X is "a true 4K console".

Both consoles offer 1 TB storage, but the Xbox One X also has a 4K/HDR Blu-ray player, which you can't find on the PS4 Pro. It's expensive compared to other game consoles, and it's expensive when you're not comparing it to anything.

Spencer's comment does make sense in the perspective that the Xbox One X offers specifications that Sony can't now rival.

The new law will lower the burden of proof to fire employees, allowing for dismissal even if most evidence is in a worker's favor. The Veterans Accountability and Whistleblower Protection Act passed the house by a 368-55 vote earlier in June, CNN reports .

Speaking to Eurogamer, Spencer was asked whether he is anxious about the Xbox One X costing $100 (£78) more than the PS4 Pro.

"Once you play a game for that first time, if it's something you haven't played before, that's where you can be sold on something".

The Xbox Backwards Compatibility for the Xbox One will drop later this year - but it will NOT be as extensive as Xbox 360 backwards compatibility lineup.

"We don't have the deep catalog of games on PC that we do on console, so I've had some pushback from the marketing team that, well it wouldn't necessarily be the best feature right now, because we won't have enough games, but I just want to start". Destiny 2, Call of Duty: WWII and Federation Internationale de Football Association 18 are all games that haven't yet been confirmed to look best on One X.
