Sony continues to lock PS4 players out of cross-platform play

The console's design echoes the sleek elements seen in the Xbox One S, with the Xbox One X coming in black. Native 4K is very impressive when sat at a monitor and desk, but actually, at lounge-scale viewing distances, it is pretty hard to distinguish between 4k and Faux-K.

This E3 has been a good one for many who are fans of playing online games with friends and strangers across different console and PC platforms.

Speaking during a recent interview with Business Insider, head of Xbox Phil Spencer was asked if Microsoft makes any money selling the Xbox One X at $500.

After weathering Microsoft's Xbox One X assault, Sony this week spoke to the strength of its own video game platform.

While the company did not reveal a new console or announce a drop in price for the PS4, it made it clear that many high-quality games are on the way. Those of you who are hoping we'll see a large amount of original games made backwards compatible should know that Spencer stated there won't be as many backwards compatible original games as there are 360 games.

The Xbox One X has an AMD graphics card that boasts 6 teraflops of performance and a 12 GB GDDR5 RAM, which are certainly bigger than the PS4 Pro's 4.2 teraflops GPU and 8 GB GDDR5 RAM. Rayner also mentioned how porting the game to PC with its multiple configurations was tough compared to the Xbox One.

Under the slim and compact hood of the Xbox One X, lies an octa-core CPU clocked at 2.35GHz and a custom-made GPU that can compute 40 customized units at 1.1GHz. "The Witcher 3 is not bad because it has to run on an integrated Intel graphics card, which is less powerful than an Xbox One or a PlayStation", he said. PlayStation's Horizon: Zero Dawn also utilizes checkerboard rendering when running in 4K, and that game is still stunning in terms of visuals.

However, now Microsoft is working with a number of partners to build VR headsets that will work with high-end gaming PCs.

While many people were disappointed with the Xbox One X's $500 tag, it's something most analysts were expecting. Both will move to the Vive and PlayStation VR platforms.

"But the real worth is the ability to play UHD Blu-rays".

Independent publishers tend to make blockbuster titles available for play on Xbox, PlayStation and personal computer hardware in an effort to sell creations to as broad an audience as possible. Bank of America Merrill Lynch maintains its Buy and PO $75 coming out of E3 2017 conference in LA today where it met with Tim Stuart, GM Xbox Finance.
