2 more upcoming games have been confirmed to support 4K resolution on the Xbox One X.
This will be the norm for most games.
You are being arrogant, and you should know when to stop being one. Most of the games announced for the Xbox One X are considered Dynamic 4K. Wolfenstein 2 and The Evil Within 2 are one of the first games to be announced as 4K Ultra HD. From the available games in that said setting, we can conclude that this won't be the norm for most games moving forward unless those games sacrifice other game features.
Most are not Dynamic 4k IHasfootinmouth
@IHassounah I guess you didn't read the article?
Form the article: "According to Microsoft’s definition of 4K Ultra HD, it can range from native 4K to dynamic checkerboard 4K support, so it remains to be seen what kind of approach the developers will implement with these two games."
Norm for most games should be one of those...
@Ihassounah Nah, they will likely be dynamic checkboard rendering as well. Microsoft has their own definition of what constitutes 4k, and it doesn't necessarily mean native.
I wanna see if it will sell more copies than the PS4 version. Looking forward to it.
whats the point of going to 4k is the framerate is still going to be a juddering mess.
@MegamanXXX - install base is smaller, so doubtful it will sell more copies through the Xbox family than the Playstation family. Would be kind of strange if that was the case.
The problem is that Microsoft's own definition of "4K Ultra HD" includes checkerboard and dynamic resolution. It's such bs that they lump all of it together to make u think that if it says 4K Ultra HD then it means native 4K. The problem with MS doing this is that it now blurs the lines between native and non native. It's typical MS and you guys need to slow your roll and understand what 4K Ultra HD means to Microsoft. This in now way guarantees native 4K, but it does guarantee either checkerboard, native, or dynamic 4K. So we basically have learned nothing.
Some seem to have the misconception that dynamic resolution means not native 4k. That's not the case. It means the resolution can drop if need be. It doesn't mean it will drop. While some games use dynamic resolution in order to make the game look better and run more smoothly on the console, Microsoft is pushing dynamic resolution for different reasons.
Microsoft wants dynamic resolution for UWP and BC. They have a OS that can emulate different architectures and make apps work across many devices. This is their effort to push their API for all programs and have it scale to that device. It's very smart and is an advantage they have right now.
Dynamic resolution is what allows them to make Forza Horizon 3 and Gear of War 4 4k games even though they weren't when launched. And at least Horizon will be native 4k and most likely Gears.
Of course it'll be the norm. Microsoft's definition of 4K Ultra HD includes native, checkerboard, dynamic, or other solutions involving a 4K frame buffer. I would expect most games on xbonex to encompass at least one of those methods.
It's funny though, just looking around here it seems like even the somewhat informed community of N4G is a bit confused in thinking that Microsoft's definition of 4K Ultra HD means native, when in fact, it doesn't. I can only imagine what casuals will think..
List all the games that are gonna be confirmed using checkerboard render on Xbox One. I bet its not a long one as opposed to the comp.
Xbox One X for all my gaming needs. PS4 Pro for Sony games and that it.
@Ihass no you're 100% wrong!! Only 2 games have been announced as dynamic/cb 4k in turn are still 2160p with reso drops to keep fps up and high 4k assets still beats ps4pro in every way and most pc's!!
@iamtyler so Sony saying 4k/dynamic etc..when in fact it's only 1440p is okay? Just because it's MS hey? Lol The difference will be actual native 2160p whether it's dynamic or cb with high 4k assets yhe resolution will drop in some games using dyn/cb to keep frames high but it's still better then 1440p upscaled with 0 4k assets no fos benefit over base ps4 and 0 ani...filtering ppl seem to be forgetting that 2 games were announced as dynamic 2160p and the almost 80 titles announced as native 2160p sorry but how many games are native 2160p on ps4pro that are not just indies or old titles with 0 graphical upgrades bar the wasted resolution bump?
Evil Within 2 4k? OMG!
Shouldnt all upcoming games on Xbox One X support 4k
Not all games. It is the same as PS4 Pro where some games won't get Pro support so unless the developer confirms 4K resolution, it will be the same as base PS4/Xbox One.
Thats a shame but Im still getting an XBOX One X though
Pretty much any games getting
Xbox X "enhanced " will also get ps4p support. And vice versa. It's solely a developers choice. Some will have the funds to give support, some wont...it's all gunna depend on the budget. That's the problem with mid-gen
Developers will use the power of the PS4 Pro and XB1X however they choose. Sony & Microsoft aren't forcing them to do anything on their systems.
Most will, but not all. Also not all games are native 4K, some will still be upscaled from 1800p etc.
Most games will not be native, by the looks of it. Likely just the 1st party titles, indies, and a few lower demanding 3rd party titles I'm guessing.
@bluefox " Likely just the 1st party titles, indies, and a few lower demanding 3rd party titles I'm guessing. " Not really. Like I said some will be checkerboard but from my understanding there are already a lot of 4k native games confirmed. Witcher 3, Resident Evil 7, Titanfall 2, Ghost recon wildlands, Hitman, Metro Exodus, Shadow of war are a few examples of games reportedly running at native 4k. None of these mentioned are 1st party , indies or lower demanding titles. Some reports also mention star wars battlefront 2 as native 4k, though I am not sure about this being true.
You realize you will see every game in 4k as your output right?
What does that have to do with whether something is 4k native or upscaled 4k?
Even Evil Within 2 and Wolfi 2 won't necessarily be native 4K. Microsoft didn't say they would be native 4K, they said "4K Ultra HD" and according to Microsoft that just simply means it'll be some form of 4K including checkerboard or dynamic. It's shady marketing imo and really an attempt to trick ppl. 4K Ultra HD and native 4K aren't the same thing according to Microsoft. Ppl need to realize that.
I have a feeling that if the games are releasing on PC then they will get 4k support for both pro and X and if they are not then the developer will have to have the ambition to create those assets for a smaller user base
Greatly depends on developer putting time into assets to support a quality 4k product. Upscaling resolution is minor to improving texture res... hdr is where its at... i am loving all titles i have seen with hdr improvemets
I can just imagine playing Wolf 2 on the X @ 4K. Yummy.
You do realize that Wolfenstein is not confirmed as native 4K, right? This simply means it will be either dynamic, native, checkerboard, or other. Funny how ppl attacked PS4 Pro for supporting checkerboard and dynamic 4K but when MS does the same thing ppl are salivating for it. MS is strong with the spin and PR game.
I expect it to hit Native 4K on the X.
It might not -> IdTech prioritizes 60 frames. . either way it'll be the best console version.
even it shared resolution with the PS4Pro, the X would do better in other areas like texture quality, frame_rate stability etc. DigiFoundary will highlight all that.
I expect better graphics than the pro.
There's more to the X than resolution.
Awesome, but I'm gonna be done with both of these before the X comes out so it's not gonna do me any good :P
I am going to hold off playing most new games until X comes out. It will be my chance to get through some of my back catalogue, before building up a new back catalogue. It is possible that I will buy destiny 2 and play that prior to X though, mostly because I will still be playing it even after the X is out.
I'd like to do this, but I'm already desperate for new games and this summer looks like it's gonna be another huge dry spell. I need me some distractions from the endless ennui that is life.
Hoping TEW gets X1 improvements, the frame rate was so aweful I had to stop playing.
All games will receive a performance boost according to MS. I cant remember the version but older games developed on previous kits will get a smaller increase than their newer DEV kit games. So the frame rate will improve regardless of any updates. In addition all Xbox 360 games will receive performance improvements.
@CY If you are not already maybe try EA access. They are adding Titanfall 2, Star Wars BF and all DLC plus BF 1 from now to September, assuming you have not played these yet. If not gamepass could be worth a go for something to hold you over. The game I am waiting to play on the X is definitely shadow of war.
Actually if they use dynamic resolution and you eventually get an X you will have the 4k version already.
Shooting Nazis never gets old especially in 4K
Developers keeps up giving to the X1X
I hope gta 5 can get a graphics boost on the X will be so great
Good I can kill more Nazis now in 4k.
definitive console versions #3 and #4
Wolfenstein is going to be good.
That awesome. It looks like the xbox1x is shaping up to be a great console after all.
I'm kinda done with 1st person shooters so, there goes that one and the 1st Evil Within, about halfway through, turned into a RE4 shooting gallery. I ended up losing interest and didn't finish. So, no for Wolfenstein and a definite maybe for EW2. Good that they're making use of the extra power though. I'm hoping Dragons Dogma does a little update too.
The New Order is definitely one of the top games of the generation so you're definitely missing out!
I agree, I know I'm missing out. I've just been playing 1st person shooters since Golden Eye and I've played the genre out. I'm sad that I don't like them anymore. Honestly, Wolf looks awesome. I just can't do 1st person. Dammit
I started with the original Wolfenstein 3D and I've been an FPS fan ever since. My biggest gripe with this generation is that I feel there isn't enough solid, story driven FPS games like Wolfenstein and BioShock. I suppose it's because of the overall saturation of them last gen.
Damn that's tempting but I still can't afford an XB1X anytime soon.
Veri cool , can't wait to see what they look like .
Games that not open world or pushing for 60 frames should be native 4k for the most part on x1x. Big ups.
November is dragging ass.. cannot wait
So from reading the comments those of you who got xbox one x and ps4 pros basically paid for a system where you sometimes get full support but other times it's just like the ps4 and xbox one original consoles O.o
Is it checker boarded or native 4K? Either way 30FPS is pretty standard for the X. It will be the most powerful console on the market but at the same time seems weak.
Cool. Still getting Wolfenstein 2 on my PS4 Pro though lol
Why are you LOL? Is that a deranged homeless man, running naked down the street, laugh? I would think you would be feeling more QQ or :_(
So all confirmed titles should get 4k assets right? Will wait and watch who is not pushing those assets.... My eyes are on you Bungie.
And ya DF will catch it easily, if assets are not upto the mark.
Is it 4k or "4k".
Why is the resolution of games so important to xone gamers all of a sudden? All i've heard/read this gen is 'we don't play resolutions, we play games'. Funny
Nailed it! And the funny thing is, it wont change anything. It just goes to show how butt hurt the fanatx were really after all. Now powah is EVERYTHING lol.
Most likely Dynamic/Checkerboard 4k seeing the article doesn't state both games definitely being in native 4k.
People should stop thinking of dynamic resolution as a bad thing. It is maybe the best thing to come to consoles ever. It means no more remasters. No need for PSNow or anything else where you have to buy your games again. This is how you play your old games. But with better fps and visuals on every new generation.
I don't think you can play a og XB game or a 360 game in a XBOX & it'll be in native or dynamic 4k,the game will still need to be remastered.
Original Xbox and 360 games don't use dynamic resolution. Any game that does will automatically adjust to the power of the available machine. So when PS5 and Xbox X 2 release, or the generation after those really, you would just need 8k assets and your old Xbox One games become 8k games. Therefore I don't know why people have an issue. Unless they enjoy buying the same games three or four times and having developers work on that instead of new games and IP.
Going forward most if not all games releasing on PC will be optimized for Xbox One X! It's much easier to optimize those games than It is for PS4 Pro (which will probably need patching whereas the Xbox One X versions can easily be downscaled to where it still maxes it power!)
What's the point when it's 30 fps?
Wolfenstein is 60fps
Is it 60fps on the Xbox One and PS4? if it isnt than why not take 4k/30 on X and probably Pro over 1080 or 900/30?
I can't help but feel jealous of future gamers who'll be playing true 8k games as standard. *sigh* to be immortal is a human dream
