"The Xbox One X looks like a bit of a beast but for me, I come to these things and I want to see the games and we saw a lot of really impressive CG trailers but where's the game play in that?" The console also supports 4K games, which is now at the top edge of video game technology.

The Xbox Backwards Compatibility for the Xbox One will drop later this year - but it will NOT be as extensive as Xbox 360 backwards compatibility lineup.

Microsoft executive Dave McCarthy wanted to defend the increase in the price of Xbox One X, reassuring customers that the hardware specs of this latest console warrant the $499.00 price tag. Games play better on Xbox One X. The world's most powerful console begins rolling out to all Xbox One markets starting on November 7.

Microsoft apparently doesn't feel that way at all, and in a recent interview, Xbox head Phil Spencer made it clear that be believes the Xbox One X has no competitor at all.

Nevertheless, the current take is that VR support will be available on Xbox One X, and will be a part of Xbox's future.
