Microsoft has issued a statement emphasising how its current and future line-up of Xbox consoles shape up against both the PS4 and the PS4 Pro.

It seems Microsoft is feeling pretty good about the situation.

"At Xbox, our goal is to put gamers at the centre of everything we do. The new hardware available now and next year was designed with that in mind to give gamers a choice in how they play," reads the statement.

"Starting at £249, Xbox One S is the only console available today with built-in 4K Blu-ray - a value price compared to 4K Blu-ray players. It also offers 4K video streaming plus HDR for video and gaming."

And the platform holder was also keen to hammer home the performance advantage of the Xbox Scorpio over the 4.2TFLOPS abilities of the PS4 Pro.

"Launching holiday 2017, Project Scorpio is the next member of the Xbox One family and will be the most powerful console ever created with 6TFLOPS capable of delivering true 4K gaming," Microsoft said.

"All Xbox One games and accessories will be compatible with Project Scorpio, including over 100 exclusives like Gears of War 4, Forza Horizon 3, ReCore, Dead Rising 4, and more, with the biggest games line-up ever coming to Xbox One and Windows 10 this year."

PS4 Pro launches November 10 priced £349.99. Pre-order the PS4 Pro now from Amazon(?)
