Xbox One and PS4 cross-platform play talks are happening, says Microsoft

Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) has opened pre-orders for the Xbox One X Project Scorpio Edition.

Greenberg explained that, while Microsoft doesn't know what kind of share of Xbox One family sales will be taken by Xbox One X consoles, they're really trying to manufacture as many as they possibly can. But in the world of cross-platform play Microsoft is proposing, the Xbox One might suddenly get a second look-especially since the system will give you access to a new Halo in addition to letting you play Call of Duty and Madden with all your PS4-owning friends. For one, it would require Sony to make its users create an Xbox Live account, while they would also need to organize who would handle each game's online infrastructure. Xbox One X will also be the smallest Xbox the company has built.

Most stores are sold out of the limited Day One edition of the Xbox One X. According to the Tracker app, GameStop.com and target.com have the $499.99 Xbox One X Project Scorpio available for pre-order. The console is powered by an 8-core AMD CPU clocked at 2.3 GHz, 12GB of GDDR5 RAM and a 1 TB HDD. Current titles can be optimized, as existing game makers can offer more assets, higher resolution and better frame rates on the console.

He also may have to appear in court through a video link from hospital as a hearing is to take place over his detention. Two Finnish citizens were killed in the attack, with United Kingdom and Italian citizens reportedly among the injured.

But as for Sony itself Greenberg said, "We're talking to Sony". And for gamers who invest in the more expensive Xbox One X, numerous third-party games and already-released titles will have Xbox One X enhancements.

Microsoft aims to make the transition to Xbox One X as easy and painless as possible.

There's of course the port of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds as well, the most popular PC shooter that's still in early access - and this is a biggie for the Xbox One family - but even that one's only a timed console exclusive.
