Will Microsoft immediately reduce the price of Xbox One and Xbox One S when the new console arrives in the market? This will lower the prices of the base consoles which will in turn attract a newer audience for their consoles.
At $500, the Xbox One X price is out of impulse purchase territory for most people. Of course, if you have followed the Xbox One X story then you know that it can pump out attractive 4K gaming much more easily than the PS4 Pro thanks to its superior components. This can be the case in the future and indeed the Xbox One X and the PS4 Pro can have these effects.
In an exclusive interview with Trusted Reviews, Slightly Mad Studios Game Director, Stephen Viljoen described the new X console as a "great piece of hardware" and also gave us a teaser for what we can expect from Project Cars 3.
That's not to say that there aren't console gamers that don't care about specs.
However, it was expected that Microsoft would have started selling the console by now, as Xbox Boss Phil Spencer had told fans on Twitter in mid-July that pre-orders "won't be too much longer" because "All approvals are done".
Stark believes that the release of the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X will lead to Microsoft and Sony lowering the price of core models. Add on more money for a 4K TV setup and you can see why the Xbox One X may not have massive success.
XBOX ONE X will have lots of games support when the November release date rolls around, including these exclusive and third-party titles.
Ubisoft's close quarters fighting game For Honor is hosting a free trial weekend, beginning on August 10th for Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
Along with the full campaign, which can be played solo and cooperatively via online matchmaking, players will also have access to all of the multiplayer modes and heroes.
