Xbox One supports 3D and 4K resolutions, confirms MS rep

Microsoft spokesperson Larry Hryb, aka Major Nelson, has confirmed that the new Xbox One will support 3D stereoscopy and 4K resolution standards.
Xbox One supports both 3D and 4K," said Hryb during a live Q&A session with gamers via Yahoo.
4K, also referred to as 4k Ultra HD, is a new resolution standard that is around four-times the resolution (3840 × 2160) of current 'Full HD' standards (1920 x 1080 - or 1080p).

So does my pc lol and the ps4 will support it. But pcs like my 12gb patriot ram, 2 nvidia titans for example can do games in 4k. The xbox one and ps4 will only support movies and tv maybe. Only saying the truth no need to get mad at me I will buy the ps4 for fifa lol

HammadTheBeast1855d ago

Ok, so $3000 can do 4K games. None of which have yet been made. CongratS?

Corpser1855d ago

Plenty of pc games already support 1440p

"4k" is really just 2160p

shutUpAndTakeMyMoney1855d ago (Edited 1855d ago )

lol u think they mean 4k games on xbox? They dont even care about games!!

anyway pc/ps4/ wiiU this gen and I am good.

I think I could miss the halo tv show. Or watch it off pirate bay anyway. Its only for premium users who pay for mutliplayer and youtube/bing.

"'4k' is really just 2160p"

Whatcha mean?

Corpser1855d ago


"4k" is 4096x2160
What we call "1080p" is 1920x1080
What we call 720p is 1280x720

So you see 4k is really just 2160p, "4k" makes it sounds like it is 4 times the resolution as 1080p, when it's just 2x

njdevil2541855d ago

Actually...4k is double the horizontal and double the vertical resolution, so it is in fact 4x the resolution of 1080p.

MidnytRain1855d ago


That still sounds like a big jump over 1440p.

That's a game by the way

mcgrottys1855d ago

TF2 on PC [free](its a completely different game)
war thunder [free](though coming to PS4)
ARMA 2 (free version and $20 ver.)
project cars
overgrowth (unfinished but playable)

and those are just a few that I've been playing I'm sure there are quite a lot more I haven't mentioned.

Software_Lover1855d ago (Edited 1855d ago )

Aren't graphics the whole point in all this? I mean, why tout specs......... if not for graphical capabilities? Why all the video comparisons? I could go on and on, but I will name one game for you that you cant get the same experience on console. And when I say experience, I dont mean trumped up action sequences with predetermined cameras and Quick action buttons........

Civilization 5 (single player or online)
Beating this game on the hardest difficulty and reigning supreme trumps almost anything else I have played.

Of course this is all personal opinion and I am jaded, lol.

Yeah but you pay 3,000$ or more for something you will have to upgrade in 3 years while we'll pay maybe 400$-500$

LAWSON721855d ago

Try again bud my PC could easily last 3 years and it cost a little under a $1000

ApolloTheBoss1855d ago (Edited 1855d ago )

But That's not all!

SexyGamerDude1855d ago

It will also require you to always be online and make you pay a fee to play used games. We here at Microsoft just know how much you enjoy giving us your money./ Sarcasm

khowat1855d ago

Are people really that against paying Microsoft for used games. You realize that when you buy a used game your depriving Microsoft of the money they would've made on that sale at all, new, full price, discounted, literally if the game was 99% off and you bought it Microsoft would still make at least some profit, but when you buy a used game they don't make any money at all, and they spent all this money mass producing and marketing this console and so much money will be lost just out of used games

And remember Microsoft only makes 7$ off a 60$ game that's third-party.

You took 7$ from microsoft and now they want a little back

shadow27971855d ago

So... you don't care about actually giving money to the people that made the game. Just Microsoft, who just makes the hardware your version happens to be running on.

Makes sense.

DarkBlood1855d ago

i dont think anyone wants to pay twice for the same game, people are buying used for a reason @khowat

Nice, I think extra options and features are a good thing. Bring on E3!

amiga-man1855d ago (Edited 1855d ago )

Just to put your comment into perspective Jek,

being forced to pay twice for your internet, messing up the second hand market and online checking every 24 hours are really really bad things.

PS4 for me how M$ can make such stupid decisions i'll never know.

Jek_Porkins1855d ago

Larry Hryb ‏@majornelson 4h

"We are months away from the launch of #XboxOne & policy decisions are still being finalized. When they are, we will let you know."

We don't have a clear picture yet, and that's bad, but not something that they cant recover from. If Xbox Live on Xbox One has dedicated servers for every game, exclusive content and all that, I'm all for paying a fee, I don't have an issue with that.

I never said it was perfect, but as Sony proved this generation, it's not how you start, it's how you finish. Plenty of time between now and later this year :)

amiga-man1855d ago

As I have pointed out to you many times Jek, paying for dedicated servers etc is very different to being forced to pay again for your internet access, something I will never support and neither should anyone else.

Nocando1855d ago

Do you see a trend here? It's been a huge echo chamber of hate since yesterday from people who had (mostly) already made up their minds anyway. So my question is, why keep pounding every remotely negative thing (or spun negative) about the Xbox One into the ground? If your choice is made and MS sucks so bad, then why persist? Just stay on the Ps4 threads and discuss all the cool stuff your looking forward to, instead of making comparisons.

Jek_Porkins1855d ago

It's the hypocrisy that bugs me, I mentioned I'd like to have seen the PS4 at that reveal, and I was hit with "The looks don't matter", now that we've seen the Xbox One, they matter again. Little fishy stuff like that, cant wait until something negative pops up..

cell9891855d ago

Just about the only good features I heard from yesterdays S**tstorm

aviator1891855d ago

what about dedicated servers for all games on X1?

Loki861855d ago

This is type of stuff that being sorely overlooked, what system you think gamers are going to buy CoD, Battlefield, Destiny ect.. One with no lag or interruptions.

cell9891855d ago

well thats a good one too, but I doubt it will be just like they described, MS is known for relying on P2P connections, I hope its true, but seems overhyped

Loki861855d ago

even though they are claiming going from 15,000 to 300,000 servers which would make perfect sense for dedicated servers.
