Far Cry 5 Team Still Waiting on Xbox One X Dev Kits

Why is virtual reality taking so long to take off?

Earlier this month, Microsoft slashed $50 off the Xbox One S ahead of its E3 press conference, which is a great opportunity to purchase the gaming console released almost a year ago. Those who buy the consoles from Best Buy will get the controller as well as three months of Xbox Live Gold. However, when a senior Microsoft executive was asked about the Xbox One X by a Business Insider reporter, he was apparently told that Microsoft, even with the rather high price tag is not expected to make any money off the sales of the Xbox One X.

"That was explicit in the beginning for the design of the Xbox One X was a native 4K console that can hit frame rates that the developers wanted to hit".

The difference in hardware between the PS4 Pro and the Xbox One X consoles are already showing up in rumors. For example, they are aware that the Xbox One X won't the most sold product next year. "So that's the point that I love to say, 'What kind of gamer are you?' and let you decide what's best for you", he said.

If one ignores the price, however, the Xbox One X appears to be fitting for this era.

According to Xbox Chief Phil Spencer, Xbox One X has been designed keeping in mind one audience in particular - the audience that wants the most powerful console and a premium experience. The emulation team are going two generations back, and in some cases, are going after games that have long since passed their expiration date when it comes to graphics and stability.

Oakland triumphant as parade set to celebrate NBA's Warriors
Golden State Warriors fans are waking up early to secure a spot along the team's parade route in Oakland, California. James teamed up with All-Stars Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh on the Miami Heat to win his first championship in 2012.

However, one criticism launched its way is the lack of system-selling, "big" AAA exclusives - which bar Forza 7 - weren't really present at the show. Some experts, as well as gaming lovers, believe that the console won't arrive until 2019.

Moreover, the site noted that besides the upcoming program of bringing backward compatibility for original Xbox games to the newest Xbox consoles that Spencer has an interest in doing something similar on PC.

Xbox One X may cost you more than usual but its expensive price is due to its high technology that caters to 4K games and a small and custom size build. Turn10's drive was to push for extreme graphical fidelity for the One X without sacrificing performance on earlier machines.

This is everything we so far know about the PS5.

The Xbox One backward compatibility feature was introduced in November 2015, and since then, over 350 Xbox 360 titles have been made available on Microsoft's current gaming console.
