Microsoft has already expressed its high expectations for the launch of Xbox One X it was referring to, but now, the Redmond company goes a step further and says that the demand for its new machine is “super high”.
During an interview with CNBC, Panos Panay, the vice president of the Surface devices division at Microsoft, said the following:
“I won’t talk about the exact numbers but the demand is super high, we are very, very excited about Xbox One X right now,” Panay said. “I won’t compare it to other consoles. What I’ll say is the demand for Xbox One X right now is exactly where we anticipated, even more so when you see that excitement for the product… this is something that resonates with gamers.”
Panay also talked about the mixed reality headsets for Xbox that players may “start to see that happen” soon: “Mixed reality can span in so many different forms, whether it’s off the back of the device, whether it’s in virtual reality headsets that you have, or its HoloLens, you are starting to see that span through Windows and that platform for Windows does bring it to life.”
Xbox One X will be available on November 7. It is presented as the most powerful console that exists, capable of offering a 4K native resolution without the need for rescaling, and it also promises to have the best version of gaming consoles, in terms of performance and graphics quality.
