Gamers and tech enthusiasts are waiting for the launching of the Xbox One X in November. Needless to say, Microsoft’s peers are also aware of the console’s potential impact in the industry.
In an interview with Gamespot, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot had some positive things to say about Xbox X One. He shared his optimism with the power of the console, in relation to one of their upcoming titles. “We did a deal with Microsoft on Assassin’s Creed: Origins, which is taking really good advantage of the power of the machine,” said Guillemot.
“We like very much what they are doing because instead of having a Kinect or something this time the industry went after more power for the machine, so more immersion, better AI, and overall better games,” he added.
“The industry will grow because the better the experiences, the more people want to have it,” he continued. Moreover, he also expressed his confidence in Microsoft’s ability to deliver.
With roughly three months before Xbox One X’s official release, Microsoft said preorders for the console will soon be up. Responding to a fan inquiry on Twitter last month, Xbox boss Phil Spencer delivered the good news. “Our plan is set for this. All approvals are done so now just landing the announce with all the info, won’t be too much longer,” tweeted Spencer.
Formerly known as Project Scorpio, the console was later renamed as Xbox One X and unveiled during the E3 2017. Existing Xbox One owners will be able to use their current accessories, thanks to the console’s compatibility features. Furthermore, all existing games from the Xbox 360 compatibility library are also compatible with the Xbox One X.
The Xbox One X is tagged by Microsoft as “the most powerful console ever” because of its remarkable specs. It features a six Teraflop GPU that clocks at 1.172 GHz an impressive 12GB of GDDR5 memory. Additionally, it also showcases true 4K resolution with a memory bandwidth of 326GB.
The Xbox One X is scheduled for global release on Nov. 7. It will retail for US$499.
