“Because we bring significantly more power to the table.”
The Xbox One X may be far more powerful than the PS4 Pro- but the PS4 Pro has the benefit of being cheaper, with more games supporting it, and the backing of the PS4’s exclusives library. So why would the average customer pick up the more expensive Xbox One X?
Speaking to EPNdotTV after E3, Microsoft’s Aaron Greenberg tackled that question head on. “Well, I’d say if you want true 4K gaming, it requires 6TFLOPs of power, we have 43% more graphical power, over 60% more memory we make available to developers,” he said. “But the most important thing is, whether you’re a hockey fan, a racing fan, an RPG fan, whatever game you want to play, it will look and play better on the Xbox One X, because we bring significantly more power to the table.”
Which is a sensible stance to take- but will I want to spend $500 to play games I already can play, but with more lines and dots on my screen? I would not, and my PS4 is more than enough for me in such a case. But maybe you feel different? Let us know in the comments section below.
