This is a great way to attract potential new buyers to the console, and can be seen as a great marketing technique to boost the popularity of both the One X and the Game Pass.
The Xbox One X is all set to come out near the holiday season on 7th November 2017 for $499.
Speaking to Giant Bomb (via Gamespot), Spencer said that supporting original Xbox games on Xbox One is more technically challenging than Xbox 360, and touched on the rights issue as another bump in the road.
Nevertheless, the current take is that VR support will be available on Xbox One X, and will be a part of Xbox's future. "Not only do we have the biggest cross-platform blockbusters on our platform, we've also scoured the world to bring our fans unique content from creative artists that capture the imagination". "Put the disc in, downloads game, play".
The Original Xbox Backwards Compatibility will launch later this year on Xbox One.
We'll find out more soon, but it's likely that there'll be a difference between some games that go big on graphical flourishes that only the Xbox One X can produce and others that just replicate their PS4 Pro patch.
For his part, Spencer believes the Xbox One X is on an island all its own in the console market and doesn't actually have a competitor.
It should also be noted that the price of the components used in manufacturing hardware eventually comes down, which means that the manufacturing cost of the Xbox One X should decrease after a while.
The Xbox One X is the smallest and most powerful Xbox One ever made. With 40 percent more power than any other console, experience immersive true 4K gaming when paired with a 4K display, such as Samsung's flagship QLED TV.
Although the Xbox One X will indeed outperform the PS4 Pro, Microsoft kind of lacked some major first-party AAA titles during its E3 2017 announcement. Digital licences to original Xbox games will transfer over as well.
