US top court sides with Microsoft in Xbox class action fight

So we'll be taking a look at Microsoft's push with the Xbox One X (the official name of what was formerly known as Project Scorpio) and Sony's attempt at keeping the focus on their own consoles and their upcoming library.

The system, which runs games at 60fps (frames per second), is "the most powerful console ever made", Phil Spencer, head of Xbox, told the BBC.

Nonetheless, the Xbox One X will have 6 teraflops of graphical power compared to the 4.2 teraflops of the PS4 Pro.

You will also be able to play local multiplayer with old titles via system link. It is also worth noting that Xbox One X will be directly compatible with all existing Xbox One games.

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.

Microsoft announced Sunday it will launch a higher-powered version of its Xbox One video game console this holiday, as it attempts to catch up to the sales of Sony's rival PlayStation 4.

However that's not where Microsoft wants it to end because speaking to PC Gamer, Xbox chief Phil Spencer seemed to be pretty open to the idea of bringing Xbox emulation onto the PC. It seems clear that Microsoft isn't anxious about that price gap between the two consoles since the company doesn't see them as direct competitors. We'll have a marketing deal on those, but I don't say, hey, I need some kind of Strike or skin somebody else can't play.

This is especially confusing because Microsoft claims all games, even those that haven't been enhanced, will still perform better on the Xbox One X compared to other Xbox One models.

The Xbox One X is here.

Right now we only know two of the original Xbox games that will be added to the program this year: Crimson Skies and Fusion Frenzy. The project will be named from now on Xbox One X and it will cost $499, being the premium option available in the Xbox series. The reasoning behind this is that their team believes VR is much more suited on PC, rather than being enabled in a gaming console.
