Head to head with PC and base Xbox One.
4K fighter added to Xbox One X belt on console. It stays locked 60 It's a damn 4K festival out here Bring in DA X! "Is it the best looking fighter on console then? Certainly by the numbers, it hands in the cleanest image quality possible for an ultra HD display - it's unmatched. And given the wide use of 1440p for fighters on PS4 Pro, it'll be fascinating to see what Injustice 2 runs at on Microsoft's machine, not to mention Tekken 7, which tops out at 1080p on Sony's supercharged console" - Digital Foundry Dat low key shade at the end.
Lol a launch game running at a almost locked 60fps (drops to 50 fps when special moves happen....where a similar 6tf card has no drops and more effects) at 4k is great....but not too impressive. Tekken looks way better...so does injustice. I mean you brag about this old ass free to play launch game like people supposed to be impressed. Yes it runs games at a higher res...but it's supposed to seeing it's more powerful and more expensive. Enjoy KI bro...its a great upgrade, but until I see new games coming I'm unimpressed. It's been 2 full years of no new AAA ips announced, I don't see any lure to pay 500 bucks for the same old games.
Digital Foundry explained the drops were during special moves and not during any other part of the fighting that has player input and remained a locked 60 FPS. During the video during combos the game stayed 60 FPS. Even specified it would probably be improved later. Its unimpressive according to you but the ps4 pro cant run any fighter game as Digital Foundry noted in 4K. Thats a bit too crazy for my blood.
I was just correcting your comment...you said "Stays locked at 60fps" when it doesn't Sony never said all games will run in 4k..ms did however and hasn't delivered. Sure they retracted their comment but clearly they compromised the game. Fact of the matter is tekken and injustice are more demanding games...ki is a launch game. The only thing you wanna do is brag about the obvious. It's unimpressive to have the "most powerful console ever created" have the least attractive and looking games. KI at 4k don't look as well as tekken at 1080p . Resolution is only the sharpness of graphics not the actual graphical look of the game. Sea of thieves and crackdown look very last gen...but will likly be at 4k. While games like death stranding spiderman god of war and days gone will not be 4k but blow sot and CD out of the water ... easily. Hell name me a game the looks better than horizon....smh power means nothing when you have no talent.
There`s no arguing here Digital Foundry already said Killer Instinct is the best looking fight game. Unless were arguing over autistic screeches. There the ones who saw the game running on Xbox One X in 4K.
Digital Foundry, whose careers revolve around this type of analysis and content: "Killer Instinct will be the first console fighter to ever run at a native 4K. With that, Microsoft can well and truly put any criticism of image quality in Killer Instinct to rest - the game looks amazing. Compared to the 900p image on a standard Xbox One, the vault in quality is highly impressive" Kingthrash on N4G: "Not that impressive" I think I know whose word I'll be taking over the other
Why does it bother you whenever a game is said to be 4k/60fps for Xbox X as all you and others do is find something to complain about
Look I'm sorry but resolution is only part of what makes a game look best. A small part at that. It's just sharpness. If that were the case then minecraft looks better than horizon because it's 4k. Yes I'm not impressed, with old games getting upgraded..I mean it's a givin for a launch game. I want to see new AAA ips. Hell they don't even need to be 4k...just impress me with something new and great looking. Man its been 3 years of yall drooling over old games. It's far past due for new games. This is just another distraction from what's really needed from xbox. Smdh...down vote the truth all you like. It just shows who's about gaming and who's about the blinding console war poison. Wake up.
@ kiwi... No I just like the truth. It's not locked 60fps and there isn't a 4k festival anywhere accept pc. Just tired of MS lies and it's fans lying. It's only hurting gaming.
Lol at PS4 and 1440p modes
@Thrash Really dude? Can you seriously get a grip for one day atleast? Just be happy for others getting this and the new console for once and cut out the downplaying. its really not that hard once you put all that hatred behind yourself...
"Look I'm sorry but resolution is only part of what makes a game look best. A small part at that. It's just sharpness." -Kingthrash People formerly considered legally blind rejoice. Lack of sharpness doesn't mean your vision is worse than anyone else's. What you see is very, very pretty. The king of the north! The king of the north!
He even said its the best image quality of any fighter on a console. pretty impressive considering the game is so good to
MS needs to show some exclusives soon. It would appear Xbox one X is going to make ps4 pro look like a joke performance wise. If they start bringing the games back then it's game over from a visual standpoint.
It doesn't stay entirely locked. It drops the odd frame. It also has crushed blacks which was a problem with the Xbox version for a long time but not the PC version for some reason. Much like the Forza 7 demo Xbox One X is almost on the performance level of a mid range PC here. Not far off the performance of a mid range RX580 graphics card and dual core test machine which didn't drop any frames at all. It's not too bad a result.
Stop cherry picking as Digital Foundry says "Take the frame-rate for example. Xbox One X's performance at 4K is absolutely bang on 60fps 99 per cent of the time, with v-sync engaged as well. It's not a completely solid read-out though as there are drops when those heavy alpha effects kick in for special moves. As an average though, 60fps is largely what you're looking at. And to cherry pick some worst-case moments during those intensive special moves, you do momentary get drops to 50-60fps." - Digital Foundry It matches the PC version in quality and framerate and runs at 4K. Seems Da X is on a roll.
Cherry picking? You said it was locked, I read the article, and that isn't what was said. It is said that the game drops frames. Dropped frames does not = locked. Please don't argue with this fact it makes you seem desperately dishonest. X1X version then falls ever so slightly short of what is accomplished on a mid range PC, but it's fairly close. If they fixed the crushed blacks and sorted out the small frame rate hitches it would then be as good as the PC version on a mid range machine.
The game does not drop any frames during player inputs i did clarify in the second comment i made if you noticed. It does seem a bit cherry picking as Digital Foundry stated is something that will be fixed close to release here. We watched in the video two characters fighting back and forth trading combos no frame loss at the 3:54 mark specifically.
Yes I noticed that you edited your post. The game isn't locked then. It is either locked to 60FPS or it drops frames and it isn't. There is no in between So it isn't locked then, thanks for agreeing with me and we have now clarified that. It's not cherry picking it's called 'THE FACTS'. Oh and the HUD is low resolution on the X1X version as well, I didn't mention that. So if they can fix the crushed blacks, the slight frame drops and sort out the low resolution HUD it'll be a match for the PC version on a mid range PC. We cleared that up now.
What mid range pc you know does 4K locked 60. Please my high end pc struggles sometimes due to developers not be able to code specifications of by pc. I usually get 50 -55 FPS on a high end pc. Yes it does depend on the game. Check any card benchmarks for 4k
'What mid range pc you know does 4K locked 60?' Seriously? Do people not even read? The test PC machine was a dual core i3 processor and a radeon RX580 graphics card. That's a pretty low end processor with a mid range video card. It ran this game locked out 60FPS and 4K resolution. There is nothing top end about that PC at all. Please read. I know the downvotes were because the fanboys are crazy about making out this console is as fast as a high end PC. So far Killer Instinct and the Forza 7 demo prove this is simply not the case and a midrange PC with old hardware had no trouble matching the console. Get over it already and stop acting like children downvoting facts
Why go after the ps4? Ki can run at 8k. Really after 4 years still dont understand. Not the same league. One got worldwide appeal and another sells well in two countries. The pro is a 399 2016 console the x is 499+ 2017 console. There isnt any comparison. Of course it will run at higher rez and effects.
Still guilty gear rev 2 is the best looking fighter ever. No way ki beats guilty gear in terms of style, gameplay, n graphics.
You know at some point it starts to come off as you trying to convince yourself and not the rest of us. Just another day another hot air comment from KonicSlumlord, the biggest M$ A-kisser of them all. You should give it a rest you're starting to believe your own hype.
The game was already gorgeous before, even at 900p. Loved the particle effects and the backgrounds. I can only imagine how it's going to look in 4k.
Indeed 😂 Seriously cannot wait to try this come the November launch. ER MAH GERD!!!
But but but it's only a fighting game with not much going on in the back ground. Shut up and sit down 1440p dwellers. Good to know I'll be getting a bang... bang.. bang.. bang, bang' for my buck.
And to think... it only took you 4 years and 3 consoles to get to 1080p + gaming. Welcome to this gen
@rude-ho Still it doesn't change my original comment. To option to get a more powerful console was always there. Your option to get the most powerful console midgen is also up to you after Nov.7. Join the most 4K having community on consoles.
Nah... I have no interest in seeing Xbox one games with a patch... they didn't sell a console then, and it will not do it now.
“I have no intrest in seeing Xbox one games with a patch”. But you’re here though LOL.
@ForeverTheGoat Yup. I have spent money on Microsoft products, this and open forum, and sharing my opinion just like anyone else does and can... Do you have an issue with that? I mean, if it is ok to be trolled by corporations with false promises of things like cloud gaming, Kinects abilities, games, graphics do matter, do not matter, and matters again, true 4k experience but announces dynamic resolutions at e3 etc etc etc... I think I can voice my opinion.
I do wish KI got more than just a resolution boost..... Load times are better too, but still.
LOL bragging about 4 year old games. 4K or not, it isn't the best looking fighter by any means, so what are you bragging about?
Why does it matter how old it is? It's getting a free upgrade to push it up to this level of performance, which is great news for the people who will play it on the X. Same goes for people who will be playing the hundreds of other games that are getting similar updates.
It is good news, but nothing to brag about. You all act like X1X now has the best looking fighting game ever or something.
Downplayers galore on this site. Sit down, take a drink and a deep breath. It's OK! The game looks sweet regardless of its age (not sure why 4 yrs is considered old all of a sudden) so why not be happy for those that get to enjoy it at a much higher res? Jesus, mannn. Be happy lol.
@rico What are you goin on about? Ive never bragged about anything. Get a grip and **** off fanboy lol.
@rico So calling the game sweet regarding its 4 year old age is now considered bragging? Man you are desperate. You're actually that dellusional that it's become full time eality to you. Come back when you put up a decent argument woth actual points for and against the game. GG E: I dont lower myself to your standards by using said words m8. What are ya gonna do about it? You got nothing.
I cam taste the salt in your comments
Haha so this is the next line of defense huh? For starters the game has had 3 seasons thus far with updates within those seasons that have addressed everything from textures to lighting to resolution. This is not the same game that launched on the X1 in 2013. But even if it was...for a gamer who has yet to play it...what would that matter? Understand that X isn't just selling to those who already have a Xbox, they will sell to gamers who have yet to own an Xbox at all this generation and will be looking for games that take advantage of there new 4k console. KI is a damn good fighter and with this update makes it one of the most technically advanced, if not thee most ever. For fighting fans, that's something to look forward to, no?
What defense? I'm correcting all you morons. You're acting like this game is the best looking game out there all of a sudden. It isn't. 720p, 900p, 1080p, 2K, 4K, 8K doesn't mean anything if the graphics aren't great. 90% of you bragging about this probably don't even play the game. 90% of you that do play the game, probably don't even own a 4K TV. When you guys have games that look better than anything on Playstation, then you can start bragging.
@yom To correct any of us "morons" you'd have to have half a clue about the subject. You clearly don't and here you are downplaying. Great job...
@rico As usual that's a whole lot of words and you ended up proving, well...nothing. You keep attempting to downplay while we'll keep enjoying these gems. Enjoy 😉
What defense??? Are you being serious? Your last line tells the whole story. "When you guys have games that look better than anything on Playstation, then you can start bragging." This sums up your defense! 😄 Noticed you said "when YOU GUYS"...this implies "us guys" are different from you...in other words, you're so called correcting Xbox gamers viewpoints that think the game looks amazing and who are excited to play it. This is due to the fact that you are on the PS side of things and feel its games look better anyway so we shouldn't be hyped for what we have to play. It's quite simple really. For starters, with your last line, you admit that even to you, the look of the game plays an important role. That we (the Xbox gamer) is only validated once a game LOOKS better than a PS game. Understand you are promoting the very thing you are attacking the "Xbox gamer" for getting excited about with this news. I'm sorry to break this to you but that is a defense my friend 😆. Furthermore, Sony doesn't have a current generation fighting game to compare with KI, so going off your own logic, they are allowed to brag by default! KI looks good in 4K and plays just as good too...at the end of the day that's all that matters. You wanting to check gamers for here hype of the update is defensive plain and simple. Now go away and let these people be hyped for something they may or may not play on there shiny new X...
Yes, I am directly attacking you Xbox fan boys. I'm not denying that. You all are bragging about 4K in ridiculous ways. My point is 4K doesn't mean anything if the game isn't designed for it. Contra NES could be re-released in 4K resolution, it will still look like a 30 year old game. You can't just slap a high resolution on an old game and think it is something great.
Can't wait for my worlds most powerful console. As every game will be most powerful on the XOX, I will consider all games to be exclusives :)
Its a 4 year old game.....ok so it will be 4K...what about getting hyped for new games MS????? Oh that's right....Phil doesn't want to invest in anything other than BC and updates to old games unless an independent studio wants to give them games for FREE.
Wow sir you just said something that no other person on here ever said before good for you
KI is an awesome game
Hell yea it is. I bloody love the games art style 😍
Killer instinct is a blast to play in any resolution. My favorite fighter of this generation hands down. I bet the particle effects are gonna look amazing on the 1x.
Cool, I guess. Anything important added to KI? 4K probably won't cause me to run out and buy a 500 dollar system when I can already play on the X1. I'd rather have new content.
I guess Xbox One X will get articles about its capability to run higher resolutions for a long time. I'll be waiting for the stories about new games for the system.
Cuphead next week.
New games, dude.
Sony did it for 4 years dont shoot the messenger you ppl forever salty with xbox
This is in my top favorite fighters ever. Still play it regularly. Hopefully it's true locked 60fps when it comes out.
Omg, this got approved?🤔 oh well, good job.
Yea.....but it's killer instinct.
This is one of two games i want for xb1.. Im not buying it just for them though.. I want a AAA new IP before considering it
This just in. The Xbox One X also has the power to run Knights of the Old Republic at 4K ! Truly a beast! How can a simple BOX contain all that power??? Surely scientists the world over are stumped, at how M$ managed to cram such earth shattering power into a single package!! XOneX has so much power, it threatens the very existence of space and time. It's THAT powerful. jk Running current gen launch titles from 5 years ago at 4K is hilariously desperate. LOL
Ps pro says hi
Yeah... I very much doubt Pro could run it at native 4k/60FPS either so these guys really come off as looking dumb.
so it continues. xbox has the best looking console games. pc's run on windows and thats where games look even better. I think MS is doing ok.
