Microsoft Confirm They Are Still Talking To Sony About Cross Platform Play

Posted August 24, 2017

However, Head of Xbox Games Marketing department Aaron Greenberg was recently featured in a a panel at gamescom 2017, via WCCFTech, where he praised Xbox One's upcoming holiday period line-up and expressed his excitement.

Tom Philipps: It sounds a lot like Sony's telling them that they can't say they have Xbox One X enhanced editions.

The packaging for the Xbox One X Scorpio Edition resembles that of the original Xbox. And although we revealed Project Scorpio as Xbox One X at E3 2017 earlier this year, the code-name will live on in the Scorpio Engine that powers the console, as well as in this limited edition console.

The Xbox One X joins Microsoft's existing Xbox One and Xbox One S consoles.

"Been told Xbox One X pre-orders are ahead of expectations by a wide margin", Jez Corden, Senior Editor at WindowsCentral and in insider told on Twitter.

Copy the settings on this Xbox to an external storage device. That said, the company's continued refusal to allow for cross-console play between PS4 and Xbox One players has become an absolute and unmistakable trend in recent months. The console is powered by an 8-core AMD CPU clocked at 2.3 GHz, 12GB of GDDR5 RAM and a 1 TB HDD.

Microsoft's made the most powerful games console in the world and it costs a whopping £449 (RM2470).

The hardware components of the Xbox One X are expensive, and margins are likely razor thin at the $499.99 retail price Microsoft is charging for the new Xbox. Perhaps Sony wants someone else to pay for the work required to get its network talking to Microsoft's? It will support 4K video, with 8 million pixels and high-dynamic range (HDR). If both online ecosystems are closed off from each other, more new console buyers are going to follow those friends to Sony's console if they want to play online.
