In an interview with BusinessInsider, when asked if the Xbox One X will be making Microsoft a profit, Phil Spencer has flatly answered "No".

If you head to the Microsoft store you will find a detailed description about the Xbox One X's capabilities and why it is known as the most powerful console in existence. "If you just look at the specs of what this box is, it's in a different league than any other console that's out there". Spencer claims that the Xbox One X is on another level compared to Sony's top end console to date.

The Xbox One X also has a superior optical drive, as the new unit comes equipped with a 4K/HDR capable Blu-ray drive, compared to the PlayStation 4 Pro which comes with an older Blu-ray/DVD drive. Recently Corporate Vice President at Xbox, Mike Ybarra talked a little about the upcoming features and updates planned for the Xbox One X in his tweets.

Xbox also comes with 12 GB of memory, while PS4 Pro offers only 8 GB.

During said event, we were told the price of the console at launch, with it set to cost £449 / $499 / 499 euros when it launches on November 7. 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. "The X will have even more trouble because the S is at $249 and so is the PS4".

For Microsoft, which will not be making any money off of each Xbox One X sold, it is hoping that the power of the console is enough to attract more players into the Xbox platform.

Spencer stated that Xbox fans should keep their expectations in check regarding the library of Original Xbox Games coming to Xbox One because only a select few Original Xbox Games will be available to backward compatibility program because of Rights issue And Emulation difficulty (technically it's a bit difficult).
