Microsoft is expected to release the much awaited Xbox One X in the next several weeks, and the Redmond, Washington based tech company has given game enthusiasts more reasons to purchase its latest gaming console. The gaming system’s power is its main selling point and its edge over Sony’s Playstation 4 Pro.

However, several game developers are claiming that these two gaming systems aren’t really that different in terms of development. In an interview of Streum On Studio (“Space Hulk: Deathwing’s” developer) with Gaming Bolt, the developer made it known that the process of developing a title for Microsoft’s upcoming console seems to resemble the process of making one for Sony’s PlayStation 4 Pro.

The developer went on to claim that the entire processes most difficult part is getting each title to run properly on the latest consoles’ original versions. The latest consoles allow the developer to include unique extras in the titles for the devices.

Device with improved user interface

Meanwhile, several Xbox One owners have noted the gaming system’s dashboard as well as the user interface, claiming that the home screen featured numerous menu options. Nonetheless, the tech company made sure that this will no longer happen to its forthcoming Xbox One X.

In an interview with VG 24/7, Mike Ybarra (Microsoft Xbox and Windows VP) made it known that the dashboard and the user interface of the Xbox One X will be different from the Xbox One. Game enthusiasts can expect the new console to feature general improvements.

The Xbox One X minimizes the unnecessary items in its dashboard. Users can navigate the new console’s home screen more easily. However, Ybarra stated that the new gaming system’s dashboard still has no final design. Microsoft has yet to announce the device’s dashboard design before it is officially launched on November 7.

Specs of the console

What we do know is the Microsoft’s new gaming system will be powered by an eight-core 2.3GHz processor with 40 compute units of GPU at 1172MHz. The device will feature a 1TB hard disk for storage with 326GB/s bandwidth, UHD Blu-ray player, 4K video output and HDR 10 support. The Xbox One X will also be equipped with a Dolby Digital 5.1, dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 3 USB 3.0 ports and 2 HDMI.

The games available for the console at launch include “Gears of War 4," "Final Fantasy XV," "Resident Evil 7: Biohazard" and "Assassin’s Creed Origins," among others.
