Xbox Backwards Compatibility - Microsoft deal big blow to Xbox One owners

You can connect it with all the Xbox One software and accessories.

Phil Spencer, Head of Xbox for Microsoft, sat down with Eurogamer at the Galen Center in Los Angeles to discuss the reveal.

Spencer, one of the most affable executives in the multibillion-dollar video game industry, got a little frowny at this suggestion. "But I will say price is critical".

As of right now, the two major third-party titles that are going big on Xbox One X compatibility are Middle-Earth: Shadow of War and Assassin's Creed: Origins. Obviously when we think about UWP and the ability for games to run across console and PC, we're getting closer.

Put simply, Xbox's new premium offering has the ability to power games in native 4K, with an Ultra HD Blu-ray player, a feature Sony omitted from the Pro. "The majority of our consoles that are sold next year will be [Xbox One] S. That has always been the plan", Spencer said. The only sticking point for many people is that the console costs $499, more expensive than Sony's PlayStation 4 Pro. The company did announce "Sea of Thieves", "Crackdown 3", "State of Decay 2" and "Forza Motorsport 7", but all of those were already known about prior to E3 2017.

Gamers may spend much more money for a high-end PC which can support 4K gaming.

"This is the world's most powerful console, aimed at your gaming customer who's looking for the premier experience", Spencer said. What's the first original Xbox game you'll be playing?

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

When it comes to the central processing unit (CPU), the PlayStation 4 has a slight lag compared to the Xbox One X as well. "I just want to show them games that they're going to be able to play on this box in the next year".
