Xbox One X won't turn a profit for Microsoft

It offers an 8-core processor that clocks at 2.3 GHz.

Original Xbox games are not the only thing from the 16-year-old console to be making a comeback.

"This is the world's most powerful console, aimed at your gaming customer who's looking for the premier experience", Spencer said. This means that the Xbox One X has a roughly 40% power margin over the PlayStation 4 Pro.

Dubbed the Xbox One X, the new machine - which until now had been known by the code-name Project Scorpio - will be the most powerful video game console on the market when it launches November 7 at $599, the highest price for a game machine since the release of Sony's PlayStation 3 in 2006. He admitted there's "no doubt" Microsoft will sell more $379 Xbox One S consoles next year than they will Xbox One Xs. "But I will say price is critical".

Even though, Microsoft took the time to announce that they are proud to bring Xbox support on Xbox One and have an emulator running games on it, they didn't reveal too much about the library or the number of games to be made available. Without going into the numbers, Spencer further explained that hardware section of the console business is not the "money-making" part, it's the games section.

Ybarra replied back to a fan asking if the current Software Development Kit for the Xbox One X is complete or are they still working on it. It remains to be seen just how many they are able to bring to the program, but it isn't going to be anywhere close to the almost 400 Xbox 360 games that are now available.

Spencer also added that he's been focused on hardware innovation, and that the Xbox One S and One X are the great products of that work. "We had 42 games, 22 of them with console exclusivity that I could put on-stage that all are games where you could see the dates for them and when they're coming", Spencer said. They want to show their game in the best possible way.
