Xbox Head Phil Spencer Says Most People Don't Care About 60FPS


For years, Microsoft has many great exclusives like Dead Rising 3, Ryse and Sunset Overdrive but the stigma associated with the Xbox One being weaker than the PlayStation 4 cost the company sales.

With a 6-teraflop Scorpio engine, the One X has 40 percent faster graphics performance than its chief rival, Sony's PS4 Pro. Microsoft unveiled an augmented reality headset called Hololens previous year, so it seems that Xbox might be working to integrate that technology into their platform. It'll use the same discs as the regular Xbox One, just with an extra coating of hardware-fuelled paint.

Xbox One X: Should I buy one?

Microsoft's press event at gaming conference this week drew the massive attention that fans expect from one of the big three console makers.

Traditionally, game content drives the purchase and upgrades of game consoles, explained Brett Sappington, director of research at Parks Associates.

Bioware has remained silent regarding Anthem, and has not revealed whether the demo was running on a high-end PC or an Xbox One X.

Last year's Xbox One S added 4K media support and upscaling for games, but it's this autumn's Xbox One X that'll truly elevate the gaming experience. With its 4k console feature, the platform is met by several comparative comments against Sony's #Ps4 Pro. What's more, game clips can be recorded in 4K at 60 frames per second, and screenshots can be captured in 4K.

"This is a true 4K console".

"In practice, it's going to come down to what resolution game developers are going to support", he told TechNewsWorld.

What about the Xbox One X? You're stuck with the standard 1080p Blu-ray discs. But you have to go back to what you said before: most people.

It has now been a couple of days since head of Xbox Phil Spencer fully unveiled the Xbox One X at E3 2017, coming November 7 for the high price of £449/$499.

The fact that Microsoft is not making a profit on the Xbox One X now, however, could not be considered surprising at all. Microsoft's console seems to offer more power, but which will be the better overall console to stick under your 4K TV? Better yet, it's cheaper than the Xbox One X. Obviously when we think about UWP and the ability for games to run across console and PC, we're getting closer.

Microsoft has realised that gamers want backwards compatibility, and you'll be able to play older titles on the One X (as you can on the One and One S).
