He also says that they are working on more Xbox One X units and reiterates once again that it's the most powerful console ever made.
I'm sure the games on Xbox One X will look nice with this feature.
You gotta hand it to the xbox architect engineers at Microsoft for putting this system level future. More bang for ya buck on any tv screen. Bring on DA X!
Speaking of system-level features, the recent addition of Windows Sonic and Dolby Atmos for Headphones deserves a lot more recognition that it receives. Anyone gaming with headphones should check those out.
You really believe ms has good engineers then you must not have seen how big the first xbox was amd xbox one, not to mention all the hardware issues lol
@Carmelo the Xbox hardware design was moved over to Panos Panay's team. They're responsible for the Surface range, so it is hard to dispute their credentials. Having said that, making everything compact seems to be a top priority. A small form factor is not something I personally value very highly, I would rather they focus on making the hardware silent and reliable.
@carmelo43 different team of engineers with different requirements to fulfill under Mattrick. The newer consoles: Xbox S and X are built by Panay's team. That is the same engineering group that develops the Surface devices. The original Xbox One was built around Mattrick's fear of repeating the issues of the original Xbox 360. Other designs were done and down voted by him. Well I guess Sony must have some crappy engineers than too. Over the years they have had multiple products with serious issues, have had recalls, iand other issues across their product lines. It is easy to find product designs from Sony that over the years have aesthetic issues as well. Their whole chip division nearly collapsed because of multiple issue, including very bad designs compared to the competition. But, like Xbox division I don't hold it against Sony because it seems like (at least with the chip division) they have turned around that recent legacy.
I wonder which algorithm they have been able to implement with the hardware and which method (OG or SG) they have gone with mainly.
A friend of mine showed me super sampling from 4k down to 1080p and it's significantly better looking. It basically wipes out all jaggies period. So even on a 1080p screen games on Scorpio should look a good bit better than they do now.
Yeah I'm guessing many 1080p owners will be relieved to get rid of flickering because of bad AA in some games.
Yeah im going to be a 1080p tv owner of the Xbox one and I'm glad Microsoft have not forgot about us users. I will jump to a 4k tv in the next 18 months but not yet bit good to see Microsoft adding things for us old tv users haha.
Yeah kudos to MS for giving 1080p owners reasons to buy their 4K console. I have a Panasonic VT60 plasma that I bought in 2013 and to me, the picture is still gorgeous. I'm not looking to upgrade to 4K until my current TV gives up the ghost. Hell that could be 5-10 years from now.
Yeah mine could be that long tbh but I will see how things play out. Not to much 4k about at the moment so it's not a must for me at the moment
Gotta give microsoft credit.. They made a nice system and i would buy it if it had unique stuff that suited my tastes.. I wonder what game will top the charts when this launches.. Like what is the title people pop in after opening up that fresh new console.
COD WWII, AC Origins, and (if it's out) PUBG. That is what people will buy.
Is PUBG digital only or physical too?
Forza 7, COD WWII... Also ready to play through Halo 5 And Tomb Raider again as well..
Cuphead, Forza 7, AC Origins, and South Park for me.
The level of blind loyalty on Xbox one x articles is hilarious! Lol! Can't wait for the articles 4 months after it's released "I can't see the difference between the Pro version and the Xbox one X version...Save your money and buy a Pro... Xbox one x or ps4/one s? Which one has more bang for your buck" With the amount of self press Microsoft have been giving themselves for over a year now on the one X, I fully expect it to smack them in the face when the machine just turns out to be just a marginally better Ps4 Pro without the large community... When the box will be in our hands and they won't be able to control the message, is when we'll see its true colors.... Just the same xbox experience we've had all generation... Lacking everything...
Lol 4 months and cant see a difference? Marginally better? We already had Digital Foundry admit and show clear differences in Xbox One and Xbox One X titles. http://www.eurogamer.net/ar... http://www.eurogamer.net/ar... http://www.eurogamer.net/ar... Digital foundry already said that Xbox One X is your 4K console bragging about consistency in results. "And it's that consistency in results - from the games we've seen thus far, at least - that is heartening. With every new PlayStation 4 Pro game that comes along, there's a sense of the unknown about what enhancements are actually going to manifest, and the extent to which an investment in a 4K screen actually pays off. Just like Sony, Microsoft has left the door open to developers to do what they want with the hardware, but certainly based on the titles we've seen so far, the delineation between the two Xbox models looks far more clear cut - Xbox One X is the console for your 4K screen, and anything else in addition to that (like Tomb Raider's multiple rendering modes) is a bonus. It's an impressive early showing then, and with over 100 games set for X enhancements, the chances are we're going to be kept really busy from November 7th onwards." http://www.eurogamer.net/ar...
Digital foundry is also a business... Microsoft and DF are both using each other... Microsoft feeds them controlled news, while they turn around and put clickbate articles that gaming fanboys jump to go watch... Don't get me wrong they do great work at DF, but right now all we have to judge by is the trickle of news Microsoft decides it wants to share... They control the message and you guys are gobbling it all up and going out of your way to spread the gospel free of charge. That's exactly what Microsoft wants, feed the trolls while they go out and fight the good fight... Sony is having a monster year and you barely hear a peep out of them. Nintendo is also having a great year, but they're more vocal about it (which makes sense when they have a new generation console) I own a 4k TV and a PRO and it's great, but unless you're playing the game next to a ps4 on a 1080p tv, you won't really notice or realize how much better it is.... Same thing with the X, the moment you start using it you'll notice a difference and then after playing on it for months you'll forget how much prettier it is, then the games will truly start to do the talking... Meaning, if you don't have a steady flow of great games coming out for it, you'll get tiered of it quickly.... Playstation has the larger online community and that won't change with the X being out. I just want you guys to start using your brain power more objectively... It's a gaming product from a company that has bs and under delivered all generation long, from DRM, to the cloud, to the best exclusives, to a lack of clear vision... If Sony didn't have a vision Microsoft wouldn't have anyone to copy...(plus they're doing a poor job of copying when they forgot to copy the games part) Microsoft has done good things this generation, like backwards compatibility, custom controllers etc... Those are well implemented ideas, I just wish their entire business was well implemented...
@skippy You are just in denial. Before launch they are showing games that look and run better than the Pro. You try to infer that DF is being paid by MS but, look at the video yourself. You can easily see the difference before launch and after devs get use to the X1X power and hardware you will even see more enhanced titles than the Pro. The Pro has been out a year ND X1X already has more enhanced titles and the devs seem to like it too. What facts do you have to support your position?
@itsmebryan You seriously think Microsoft isn't controlling the message of their most important xbox product? Lol! You guys are just starting to get scary now.... Of course Microsoft is controlling what DF is allowed to talk about. Doesn't mean they're paying them to. It's beneficial for both, Microsoft controls the message, DF gets the clicks and advertising revenu that comes along with those clicks... I wouldn't expect anything less from Microsoft or any other company. The product isn't out, so they dictate how the message gets delivered. Makes total sense. My previous message still applies, I'm not denying the games won't look best on the x, I'm saying you won't care that they do in a few months when there's nothing "new" to play on it.... 4k is just pixels, it won't change your life, not matter what you think you know.
Now we have to say Microsoft is feeding controlled news. How is Digital Foundry a controlled news source? They do benchmarks on games in real time and show differences. Come on man this is just pretty sad. Not even the Ps4 pro got this level of scrutiny your pushing here.
@kionicwarlord222 I'm pushing zero scrutiny.... This is all on Microsoft, they're the ones who've been pushing this thing for over a year with people like yourself going on every article and repeating their gospel... (don't deny it you have. Lol) Wait till after November 7th when the entire media spectrum is allowed to voice their own opinions... I'm not saying they will trash it, they'll just give us a better perspective of what the X is.... A better Xbox, not a better console.
Skippy's brain is trollskippy... Blind fanboy drinking too much Sony Kool aid
How did I promote anything Sony? I love gaming in general, no matter which company you prefer. If me opening people's eyes, is trolling then that's pretty sad... I wish Microsoft nothing but luck and for them to have a successful launch, but don't come cry to me when your Xbox one x is collecting dust in 4 months because you've watched DF porn for over a year and it under delivers.... We're all entitled to our opinions... So keep "non trolling" as much as you want.
The irony Trekster, the sweet sweet irony
Speaks of blind loyalty, yet clearly has a bias. The Fanboys have become half self aware.
... The irony of trying to point out irony... Thats some irony bingo right there my friend. Lol!
The Xbox One X version of RoTR makes the PS4 Pro version look pretty nasty to be honest.
I'm sorry, but 6 TF isn't marginally better than 1.3. The switch to GDDR5 and an extra 4 gigs of it doesn't hurt either. You're talking 900p to Native 4K on Killer Instinct and Gears of War 4. That isn't marginal, dude. That's drastic.
is supersampling for xbox 360 games being played on OneX? or is it for people with OneX that plays on 1080p tv? maybe both??
Supersampling for games on 1080p display on the XBOX are using the 4K or any enhanced assets. Xbox 360 games do not have such assets. Now, what they have said is depending on the Xbox 360 game you will see games run smoother and better than the original Xbox 360 game. Of course BC games will load faster. On the visuals since the XBOX has greatly improved it's texture filtering (now 16x anisotropic at the system level) it will affect XBOX 360 games as well.
This is one place Sony really dropped the ball with the PS4 Pro.
Messaging as well, I shouldn't have to use a Neogaf thread to find the enhancements for a game on the Pro. Supersampling also seemed like such a no brainer move I assumed it was there from inception in all titles.
Yeah, there's no consistency with how the PS4 Pro operates on a 1080p screen. Some games that render in a higher resolution while on a 4K screen downsample on a 1080p screen, while others just render at 1080p in 1080p mode even though higher resolution rendering is available on different TVs.
Agreed. It should have been more powerful, with a memory increase at least. Microsoft went from 1.3 TF to 6 TF also changing their base memory to GDDR5 and 12 gigs of it. Sony's increase over the standard PS4 was way too modest. They really did drop the ball. Naughty Dog and 1st party devs will squeeze it and make gorgeous games regardless, but they're still left with much less to work with. Third party devs as well.
Well, every new console Sony ever creates is the most powerful console ever made. It gets so weird when this is the only thing MS goes on about and even if I get disagrees, this is the truth on every new gen or ”mid-gen”.
Oh yeah baby. Hit me with all them disagrees which mean you agree with me.
Sony you need to get your sh1t together and add system-level super-sampling patch for the Pro ...that's the one thing missing in the Pro, everything else you do is perfect
No games my ass
Are you happy with Xbox's new IP this generation?
Question to current Xbox one owners? Do Xbox one support in game music? I bought the pro thinking I will be able to play spotify over my game music and it just won't let me do it. I enjoyed last gen with xbox360, I moved on to PC when alieware alpha launched becuse I didnt see a big enough graphical leap in the current gen untill ps4pro came out.So before I buy the one X let me know of some of the features the current Xbox one has . please truthfully answer the question thanks and I appreciate it
If im understanding you correctly, then the answer is yes. Xbox has apps like Spotify, Pandora, IHeart, etc that you can listen to and play over pretty much anything on Xbox from the Home screen, any game, or any app.. even over Hulu/netflix if you wanted to. If youre talking about something else and I didn't understand my bad
Thanks I wish I would have waited for the 1x instead of being so anxious to give the 8th gen a chance to soon.Ps4 pro is not what I expected.Xbox was always more of my style.Hopefully the 16 bit floats help the pro with textures and frames because 4k dosent help that.I played tomb Raider on alienware Alpha on my Sony Bravia 4k screen in (1080p ) Ultra textures vs Rise of Tomb raider 4k on my ps4 pro,.Guess which one looked better?I was disapointed knowing that the pro Gpu is twice as powerful it just didnt make sense. Maybe it should just leave 4k alone and just improve on visuals in 1080p.
Yea it does
Thanks for your reply
Shineon... I’m able to play spotify in the background while playing my game on PS4 pro... are you SURE you weren’t able to do it?
I heard MS basically butchered the pc version of Forza to get more to jump on the X and Live.
