Microsoft And Sony In Talks For More Crossplay

Sony has not revealed why it remains reluctant to allow crossplay between the PS4 and Xbox One, though there are a number of issues that such a partnership would present. It's no longer a launch title for the Xbox One X, leaving the only real exclusive triple-A launch game for Xbox One X being Forza Motorsport 7, another entry in the annualized vehicle racing series. As expected it contains trial passes for Xbox Live and the Xbox Game Pass. Ironically given this, there remains a long wait for the Xbox One X, including the limited-quantity Project Scorpio Edition - but you can preorder your unit before it is released with a price of $499.99 in November.

This Holiday, personally, I'm really excited, [because] Xbox One will be the only console where you will be able to play Forza 7, Cuphead, and PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, which we are super excited about. The device comes with more powerful hardware than the original Xbox One, including a 172 MHz graphics processing engine capable of processing six teraflops. Buyers also get a Blu-Ray drive in the packaging. With 40 percent more power and 60 percent more memory for game developers than any other console, get ready to experience immersive true 4K gaming. After Microsoft's presentations at E3 2017 in June and Gamescom this week, they've not quite delivered.

He didn't say whether this tech would be implemented for the Xbox One X launch, but it's good to see Microsoft is working on the idea.

All the optimizations come under the "Xbox One X Enhanced" program. Those with the 4K logo mean will have a better output of 2160p, but 4K support will have checker boarding and native and dynamic resolution.

"We are counting down to the launch of Xbox One X later this year and look forward to getting the world's most powerful console into the hands of our fans".
