Phil Spencer wants original Xbox emulation and Game Pass on PCs

After months of anticipation, Microsoft unveiled its Xbox Project Scorpio gaming system, and the device is officially named Xbox One X. The moniker of Microsoft's Xbox One X comes just days after the tech giant trademarked a mysterious S logo.

The Xbox One X proves a beast in terms of specs, its GPU sporting six teraflops of power easily beating the PS4 Pro's 4.2 teraflops.

"When I think about techniques to somehow manufacture a 4K screen like what some other consoles try to do, this is different than that", Spencer explained.

When it comes to performance, the Xbox One appears to be the clear victor, as it features a 2.3 GHz CPU, 6 teraflops of computing power, 12GB RAM, and ability to play games at 60 FPS.

Aiming at the hearts of gamers, Microsoft also showed off 42 coming games, with 22 titles being tailored for exclusive play on Xbox One consoles. "Getting the trademark for Scorpio is really hard", explains Spencer, "When we do names, you have to pick global names for things".

"As far as I'm aware, there is nothing that offers the combination of power and performance at the price that we're doing right now [with Xbox One X]", he said. The ones for the Windows 10 are in fact Xbox Play Anywhere games.

"I don't know what deals get written", he adds.

"Despite the huge enthusiasm for virtual reality and the rapidly-growing audience for the medium, it's not going to sell consoles in the same way as a new Assassin's Creed title or Forza Motorsport 7 can".

The Xbox One X is out November 7 worldwide.

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.

Minecraft is already available on countless platforms and, in August, the Better Together update will unify the game's code base across majority. It is essentially dynamic 4K resolution so depending on how it is handled, the game might output lower than 4K during intensive scenes.

Since the Xbox One X is essentially an upgraded Xbox One, it is compatible with all existing Xbox One accessories. "We've got great support from the company to go do that".
