Microsoft’s Counter to PS4 Neo – The Xbox Two


Sony is developing a 4K capable console, the PS4 Neo. Which is going to be possibly releasing in 2016. So, to keep up with Sony, Microsoft is possibly making the Xbox Two, which is also a 4K/VR capable console.

What does Phil Spencer has to say about the Xbox Two?

Phil Spencer, the head of Microsoft’s Xbox Division, has confirmed that a new Xbox will indeed come. He hasn’t talked about what the Xbox Two will have to offer, but he did spice up the fans by saying that he respects the feelings of Xbox Console customers and he won’t let them down.

It is also possible that the Xbox Two will arrive before PlayStation. This strategy has worked for Microsoft in the Xbox 360 days too, as the 360 arrived almost a year earlier than its Sony rival, it gained huge success.

4K/VR Capability:

This is expected. To compete with the PS4 Neo and the PC, the Xbox Two is going to offer 4K gaming experience. However, VR is a possibility. As the coming years are going to be big for VR, if the Xbox Two comes in the time when VR is at peak, it could feature VR capability too. This could take the console from the ground to the skies.

Better hardware and backwards compatible:

The Xbox Two is going to be a major overhaul of the Xbox One. It is going to be using an AMD chipset so it is going to be compatible with Xbox One games out of the box. Reports suggest that the Xbox Two is going to have 10 TFLOPs of computing performance.

Connection with PCs (Windows 10):

The Xbox Two may have some technology with which it can be paired with a Windows 10 PC. This can give the Xbox Two some good flexibility and features.

SSD Support:

The Xbox Two could feature a Solid State Drive (SSD) too, for very fast loading times. All this will be done while maintaining the sleek look and form-factor of the Xbox consoles.

What about Xbox 1.5?

No. Although there are reports indicating the existence of a PlayStation 4.5, the Xbox 1.5 isn’t going to come. The company has shown no interest in Xbox 1.5. So, it is going to be a full major console, the Xbox Two.


More details about the Xbox Two will be out as the time goes by. Let’s see what Microsoft is going to do this year.

And if a company like Microsoft comes calling and asked for 10 million copies and a discount you don’t think they wouldn’t give it to them? You’re kidding right?

Even you you consider discounts, the console wont be less than 700$ considering CPU GPU and manufacturing costs.

P.S. Consoles run on APUs, not gpus, and there’s no APU with 10TFLOPS of perf.

I think if any company threw a lot of money at them they would discount the cost and it wouldn’t be $600-$700 they would pay pert unit.

Lol and if it is to be compatible with Xbone then its needs that awful eSRAM bottleneck too that is forever going to be its major weakness. The Xbone 2 needs to be a complete overhaul altogether.
Does the name Xbone 2 make any sense? As much sense as calling your console Xbox One I guess. Seriously though they need to give it a name this time that isn’t the stupidest thing since Wii U or NX for that matter.

not entirely true any longer…

THis is why Microsoft has gone to the path of UWP… Although the growing pains of it are rough, once finished, it allows Microsoft Software the ability to move from varying hardware configurations..

Microsoft will one day be able to move between AMD, Intel, with or without esram,and still function as intended…

AMD just needs pray that Microsoft sticks with them… that’s all…

“Microsoft will one day be able to move between AMD, Intel, with or without esram,and still function as intended…” WTF… Do you actually just read the crap you type? You are aware that its thanks to the memory, or dare I say the lack of memory bandwidth of the ESRAM that the Xbox is where it is now? Compare ESRAM with GDRR5, I dare ya. Both are night and day in the performance and bandwidth limitations. There is a reason MS went with ESRAM… ITS A CHEAPER MODEL!!! They made the same mistake as they did last gen. They didnt… Read more »

did you actually read what I typed…

UWP allows Microsoft to abandon esram in the future if they chose to… THat’s why Forza (and RotTR, QB, and Forza) are the test subjects for this. Can games still run as intended although originally coded for the Xbox One…

Also there are developers who avoid the esram altogether when doing Xbox One games…

So it’s possible…

your rant is must be targeted at someone else because it makes no sense for what i posted and the person I replied to posted…

While I like the X-Box One I would never have described it as sleek.
