Xbox One X is Microsoft's powerful new game console

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.

Sales of Xbox consoles now remain significantly behind those of the newer PlayStation models, which rumours suggest may be set to receive a price cut at Sony's E3 announcement on Monday.

Currently, the PS4 Pro sells for $399 while the Xbox One will cost $100 more.

Microsoft has announced 22 titles which will be playable on the Xbox One X. According to Microsoft's Phil Spencer, they don't see the Pro as competition for the Xbox One X, suggesting that it goes up against the Xbox One S instead. The company may try to get developers to warm up to the platform first before it ultimately launches a headset powered by its game console.

Every game will also run faster and look better on the X system, but you won't have to worry about X exclusive titles; every game will work on all Xbox One systems, but best on X. But this, clearly, from a technical perspective, is the most powerful console by quite a wide margin.

But if you can get past the straight-up comparison with the PlayStation 4 Pro and other consoles and look at the Xbox One X from some different perspectives, it actually looks like a good deal. That included the likes of Forza 7, Metro Exodus, and Anthem, a new Destiny-like sci-fi shooter from Bioware and EA. This console is officially named Xbox One X - a pretty rad name, if you ask me. In an interview with PC Gamer, Spencer expressed his hopes that the library will make its way to Windows 10 at some point in the future, accompanied by the Xbox Game Pass that launched last month.

The Xbox One X has been shown to be a powerful gaming machine that's capable of state of the industry visuals.
