Sony's Ryan on Switch, Xbox One X, and defending Europe

And so it seems Microsoft's first priority was securing hardware and make software available on all fronts.

Microsoft took the wraps off its powerful new home console, the Xbox One X, at the E3 games show in Los Angeles earlier this week. Notably, Microsoft's anticipated Crackdown 3 will launch alongside the X.

One could argue the specifications versus the quality of performance versus the price tag versus a number of games (or lack thereof) for hours on end. But that doesn't mean Xbox head Phil Spencer hasn't heard fans and their criticism of the lack of said games now coming to Xbox One in the next 18 months.

Having found out about the new console, the Express Online asked a few developers what they thought about the new gaming machine.

The new controller will offer compatibility with the Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs. Hopefully we get some figures soon after launch as to how much the Xbox One X costs to manufacture. While many were prepared to see a higher price point compared to earlier Xbox products, the $499 tag still came as a shocker to some since Microsoft had introduced the Xbox One S just past year at E3 2016, and it was sold starting at $249. I don't understand how they...it's like a high-end PC crammed into this tiny little box...

For the starters, PC games are played on one's personal computer, while the consoles games are manufactured by another company specifically to play intense games. It's packed with impressive technical specs: triple the memory of the Xbox One S console Microsoft released past year, graphics that top the PlayStation Pro, a terabyte of storage.

Sony's Jim Ryan stated that the power advantage of the Xbox One X over the Playstation 4 Pro won't be that evident when it rolls out this winter. The new game console will be launched on November 7.

The only question remaining is just how many consumers will buy a £450 console to play the same games they can on the one they already own. That being said, the target audience for the Xbox One X isn't almost for the typical family household. The company won't be making any money from selling Xbox One X consoles. On the other side, original Xbox games will be emulated to run on Xbox One. "I don't think that's the way consoles are going to go". HDR support is present in both, Sony and Microsoft consoles.
