Phil Spencer wants to extend Xbox backwards compatibility to PC

After a relatively quiet period with Sony and Microsoft congratulating each other with announcements and launches, Xbox's Phil Spencer has told Eurogamer that he sees the PlayStation 4 Pro as a competitor to the Xbox One S, not the Xbox One X.

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

We've now learned more about the business side for the Xbox One X, and while the company isn't making on profit on the $500 console, it's not exactly clear if Microsoft is incurring a loss. While many are debating what those promises truly mean and whether we'll see the majority of games in Native 4K or checkerboard rendering, Microsoft's Xbox chief Phil Spencer believes the Xbox One X is "a true 4K console".

According to the USA technology firm the Xbox One X is the world's most powerful console with 40% more grunt than anything now on the market. At least not yet, according to a recent interview with Business Insider (via GameSpot.) The recently revealed console is categorized as being "in a different league" with specifications surpassing its competitors and almost doubling in power of its predecessor.

Spencer's comment does make sense in the perspective that the Xbox One X offers specifications that Sony can't now rival. Microsoft has announced that all existing Xbox One accessories will be compatible with the new Xbox One X. It's going to be there on launch day for Xbox One X, which will be a great showcase for the box. Well, Microsoft is planning to use "super sampling" on the new One X to enhance the visuals of new games, making it look better even on 1080p TVs.

The Xbox One X will arrive on November 7 with a $499 price tag, which is $100 more than the PlayStation 4 Pro.

The feature will arrive later this year with Xbox admitting the feature has been tough to make available.
