PS4 vs Xbox Sony and Microsoft bosses in war of words over Backwards Compatibility Games

PS4 vs Xbox Sony and Microsoft bosses in war of words over Backwards Compatibility Games

Many out there have been rallying behind the Scorpio, now the X, for a year now saying it will be a huge Microsoft comeback. The Xbox One X is hailed by the company to be the "smallest Xbox, ever" lending to its minimalist design.

I personally think the answer is somewhere in between but closer to PS4 Pro status.

Like the Xbox One S, the Xbox One X will support Ultra HD Blu-ray disc playback and streaming of 4K video with HDR.

The Xbox One X boasts of 6 teraflops of graphics processing power compared to PS4 Pro's 4.12.

Simply for the promise of true, native 4K gaming, Microsoft wins in this department, but of course the differences are nearly negligible for the average person.

Elsewhere in the interview, the charismatic executive also revealed that Microsoft doesn't expect Xbox One X to be its' best-selling console next year - Xbox One S will be. [.] There's not a ton of work developers are having to do to get to 4K, and then they can spend the extra headroom they have and time to flawless the game they want to build. The back panel shares the same ports as the Xbox One S, so you'll need a USB adapter if you want to use Kinect with it. This ensures the system will be useful as a movie player, though it doesn't seem to offer any significant non-gaming multimedia benefits compared with the Xbox One S.

We'll find out more soon, but it's likely that there'll be a difference between some games that go big on graphical flourishes that only the Xbox One X can produce and others that just replicate their PS4 Pro patch.

So I highly doubt people will try very hard to get their hands on a $499 console that offers better processing power and visuals over a $249 and even cheaper equivalent that has all the same features and games in nearly unrecognizably different quality. Even then, it doesn't have many exclusives to offer.

On paper, the Xbox One X wins in terms of raw power - no arguments there.

When Microsoft unveiled the console at E3 2017 this week, Spencer described the machine as "the world's most powerful games console".
