Don't Expect As Many Original Xbox Games To Be Backwards Compatible

Xbox Head Phil Spencer appeared on Giant Bomb's E3 live show a few days ago and admitted that the OG Xbox game library wouldn't be as large as the Xbox 360's.

Developers have already started optimization work on the PlayStation 4 Pro version and they cannot work on improvements of the version for Xbox One X until Microsoft will not send a dev kit to the company.

That being said, the tech titan confirmed several games for the Xbox One X console.

I'll be curious how this one shakes out. It is the smallest Xbox the company has ever made - at 11.8-by-9.4-by-2.4 inches, which is good news for those with limited space on their television stands.

Spencer announced that Xbox will expand the Xbox One backward compatibility library of almost 400 popular Xbox 360 games to include Xbox Original classics, starting with fan favourite "Crimson Skies". Some of them will hit 60, some of them will do 30, some will do checkboarding and their games will look fantastic.

According to the rumor mill, Grand Theft Auto 6 from Rockstar Games will be the first game to be released for the PS5. A host of these titles will be enhanced to run in true 4K, and many will be available at Xbox One X launch.




We expect that the PlayStation 5 will use AMD chips like the PS4 and Xbox One X. It will offer a native 4K support and could come with a virtual reality headset support. I think Microsoft still has some selling to do.

With all that said, it's probably not worth upgrading to the Xbox One X if you already have an Xbox One or Xbox One S and a 1080p TV.

The major advantage of the Nintendo Switch over the other two consoles - aside from the outstanding exclusive games such as Zelda that Nintendo delivers - is the fact that the console offers portable gaming.

Let us know whether or not the Xbox One X $500 price tag is worth it in your eyes and whether or not you will be buying the console when it comes out.

This is another area where the Xbox One outperforms the competition, with the 12GB of RAM included in the newest of the three consoles, with the RAM also being delivered at 326GB/s. It is currently the most powerful full-fledged gaming console money can buy right now. The Xbox One X is clocked at 2.3GHz, with the PS4 Pro processor speed being 2.1GHz. Despite the changes, they are still being constrained if we are to go by the rumors.

The Xbox One X launches on November 7, 2017 for $499.
