    The future of Xbox, what does it look like?
    Microsoft's latest console, the Xbox One X is off to a solid start, beating the PlayStation 4 Pro in its launch week by a significant margin.
    After years of struggling behind PlayStation in terms of hardware power, Microsoft's Xbox is now firmly in pole position, delivering a $500 box that not only trounces the PlayStation 4 Pro for 4K video game visuals, but delivers additional features like UHD Blu-ray, HDMI-in, and 4K game DVR. The Xbox One X is simply hard to fault, at least on paper.

    A lot of the conversation surrounding Xbox has now turned towards its first-party games line-up, which isn't catering to the maturing "core" audience in the same way Sony appears to be, with photorealistic games like God of War, The Last of Us 2, and Death Stranding on the roadmap. By comparison, Microsoft hasn't committed to announcing titles coming beyond 2018, and the ones that are on the way, namely Crackdown 3, Sea of Thieves, and State of Decay 2, probably won't get the same attention as a gritty, narrative-heavy realistic open world title like PlayStation's God of War or Horizon Zero Dawn might.
    Also, there's the issue of services and the uncertain future of Windows to discuss. With Groove Music abruptly shut down, many have rightly wondered if Microsoft still has the will to compete for consumer's attention in other areas. Is Movies & TV on the way out too? What about Cortana on the Xbox with Kinect killed off? And what happened to Xbox One X VR?
    Here's everything we think we know about the future of Xbox, pulled from insider knowledge, various Xbox exec interviews, and general gaming trends.
