Xbox One X will not generate profits for Microsoft

Xbox One X will not generate profits for Microsoft

Sunday marked a milestone Xbox E3 Briefing as Microsoft Corp. unveiled the world's most powerful console, Xbox One X (formerly code-named "Project Scorpio") and its largest and most diverse games lineup in E3 history. "The money-making part is in selling games". Beyond Phil Spencer, Microsoft has been very quiet on the possibility of VR support on the Xbox One X.

It's impossible to say whether Microsoft will be making a loss on the Xbox One X, or merely breaking even, but we do know for sure that they'll be relying on selling lots of games to turn this into a profitable venture.

Speaking to Giant Bomb (via Gamespot), Spencer said that supporting original Xbox games on Xbox One is more technically challenging than Xbox 360, and touched on the rights issue as another bump in the road.

During an interview with Business Insider, Phil Spencer, head of Xbox division, gave a simple "no" when the media asked if sales of Xbox One X will generate profits for Microsoft. Eventually, the cost of making the console will decrease and its profit will increase. A host of these titles will be enhanced to run in true 4K, and many will be available at Xbox One X launch.

At that price, the Xbox One X does not come with any accessories or any games. With 40 percent more power than any other console, experience immersive true 4K gaming when paired with a 4K display, such as Samsung's flagship QLED TV. The Xbox One X is the more powerful console when compared to the PS4 Pro - and for $100 more, it absolutely has to be. With a 2.1 GHz 8-core AMD chip, the Sony console is slightly behind the 2.3 GHz 8-core AMD CPU that Microsoft's newest console uses. 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.

Xbox One X was created to deliver uncompromised power, ultimate compatibility and design excellence.
