US top court rules for Microsoft in Xbox class action fight (MSFT)

Much like Sony's release of the PS4 Pro, Microsoft's Xbox One X is an upgrade to their most popular game console, the Xbox One.

The company delivered this E3 when head of Xbox Phil Spencer took the stage to confirm that original Xbox games will be playable later this year on Xbox One. Microsoft showed the new Xbox One X at E3 2017 and it is a lovely machine but inessential. That's £100 more than Sony's PlayStation 4 Pro which was released previous year. It's a more powerful Xbox One, that will play some games in "True" Native 4K, while others will use methods like reprojection and checkerboard rendering to fill a 2160p framebuffer. As we know already, many 360 games are compatible with Xbox One, but this week they announced their expansion on that with the classic Xbox library.

The Xbox One X is all set to come out near the holiday season on 7th November 2017 for $499. The Xbox One X will ship with 1 TB of storage, and an exterior that looks a lot like the Xbox One S, albeit with an even smaller footprint.

When asked by PC Gamer whether this could also extend to PC, Xbox boss Phil Spencer suggested this could well be the case.

Microsoft has been keen to include its PC user base in future gaming plans as shown by the Xbox Play Anywhere initiative, which debuted a year ago. Microsoft introduced to the gaming world its latest addition to the Xbox One console family.

Speaking with Eurogamer, Spencer's stance on the current Playstation vs. Xbox rival is made abundantly clear. Xbox also revealed other games will receive free updates to utilize the power of Xbox One X.

These games are Crimson Skies and Fuzion Frenzy.

What helps sell every console, of course, is the games that are coming with it and Microsoft is boasting a strong 22 "console launch exclusives".

The Xbox One X boasts a 6 teraflop graphical processing unit, 12 GB GDDR5 of graphic memory, and an 8-core custom AMD central processing unit.
