E3 2017: Microsoft isn't making a profit on the Xbox One X

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. We didn't get get any hint on how numerous original Xbox games would be coming to the program, but Spencer said to Giant Bomb after the show that "It won't be as big as Xbox 360, I'll tell people that". The question is, will they?

By comparison, the PS4 Pro has 4.2 teraflops, the standard Xbox One has 1.31 teraflops, and the standard PlayStation 4 has 1.84 teraflops.

Spencer, however, refused to admit that Microsoft is selling each Xbox One X at a loss, clouding the profit margin that the company expects from what is described as "the world's most powerful console". However he also noted that due to PCs having varied specs, it makes it slightly more complicated than a console whose specs are fixed.

"I've said I want to bring Game Pass to the PC".

Xbox One X won't be out until November this year.

Mayweather says he accepted Mcgregor fight for the fans
Mayweather-McGregor have yet to get together face-to-face since the announcement but they are expected to announce a promotional tour that will take them to a couple of major U.S. cities.

It's traditionally only Nintendo who manages to sell its hardware at any sort of profit out of the gate (though the Wii U was an anomaly) there. "This held back notion - I know that you're not unique in calling this out". He told them that the experience will be better on PC, and that Xbox is choosing to focus on mixed reality or augmented reality.

Conspicuous in their absence, however, were Microsoft's two biggest homegrown franchises, Halo and Gears of War.

Sure, you'll be able to play original Xbox games on Xbox One soon, but don't expect the library available to be as extensive as Xbox 360's.

Still, not even a little Halo 6 tease?

"I don't want to get into all the numbers", Spencer went on to say, "but in aggregate, you should think about the hardware part of the console business is not the money-making part of the business. A lot of our games, nearly 20 of them in the show, are going to be on Windows too".
