Phil Spencer is back to talk about Xbox One X, the new ‘premium console’ of Microsoft, explaining that it is not a product for all types of player.
These are the words of Spencer: “Xbox One X is specifically a console, so it’s for someone who want to play on a console, who wants the most powerful console, a premium experience… it’s not for everyone, just like the Elite Controller, a $150 controller is not for everybody,” said the boss of Xbox to the microphones of Giant Bomb.
“Some of you just get the controller you have, and go and play your games, and so we are going to play a lot of Xbox One S’s. We will sell more S’s than X’s, because the price point is important to a lot of people. But there are some people out there who go and buy a Titan X, and put it in their PC, and it’s for a specific thing, and there’s also people on the console side that buy a PS4 Pro or an Elite controller, and want the best experience that their console ecosystem offers. And I wanted to make sure that the best that Xbox offers would be the best thing that anybody is offering right now.”
The price of $499 is somehow indicative in this sense, if we consider that the basic model of the Xbox – Xbox One S – currently costs almost half.
