Following a leak of the Japanese version of the commercial, Microsoft finally released the full Xbox One X ad in English.
This is such a good commercial. The power song goes so well with everything shown on DA X.
The wait is almost unbearable!
What an amazing console!
The goal of the ad seems to be convincing people that power makes gaming better and that this console is so powerful that it changes the experience of gaming itself. Although no definition of true power is quantified, this is supposed to be it and that is what you should desire.
You don't need to have defined what you can clearly see. A picture is worth 1000 words. I didn't give you that disagree though. Most of what you said is accurate.
*eyeroll* PS4 fanboys have been blowing that trumpet since 2014. Now the shoe is on the other foot. Amazing how priorities shift based on the competition.
Xstation, actually the Xbox camp have been blowing that trumpet since they entered the industry. 1st with the more powerfull Xbox & then the 360, the PS4 was the 1st console Sony released after MS entered where the difference was a step above enough for people to use it against Xbox instead.
Yep. Welcome to advertising. With respect, the point of an ad is to convince people that they need a certain product. Consumer misleading and embellishing are common in advertising and we should naturally expect both.
Having gamed on a PC that's substantially more powerful than the X for several years, I can say that the only way "power" improves the gaming experience is with higher frame rates, which the X doesn't really do anyway. Sure, resolution and setting boosts will make it look prettier than consoles, but eventually you get used to it and it becomes your new normal. That's why I never upgraded to Pro over my standard PS4, a graphical boost alone just isn't that big of a deal without a frame boost to go along with it. Now if my PS4 ever breaks, I'll likely grab the Pro, because why not? But until then, resolution/setting boosts do very little to improve the experience once the "high res" novelty wears off.
The beast is upon us. Thou shall see true power come forth the seventh day of November, AD.
You know how ridiculous these religious fanboy ramblings are. I mean seriously I know fanboys are crazy but you're starting to come across as zealots just take it easy it's a powerful console cool there will be a more powerful one soon and one after that so on and so on it's nothing special
They sound absolutely ridiculous, and a tad pathetic.
Theyr just having fun in their excitement for the new xbox.
@Dark It would actually be kinda funny if they were tongue-in-cheek about it, but they're doing it unironically. So cringey, lol.
@NoPeace_Walker It's one thing to be hyped, but dude, you're taking it to a borderline "mental health issue" crazy level.
@blue How do you know they're doing it unironically? Do you personally know all of these people? lol
Lol Blackout . Exactly!
Its funny because when the same people say PS4 Pro was a failure, they talk as if us PS4 fans were doing this overblown religious talk before it came out like they are. Its an iterative console for a console that has been a disappointment since the day it released 4 years with the future of its exclusive games brought into extreme questioning the last 12 months. PRAISE THE LORRRRD. lol
It's edited really well, the audio to visual beats are spot on. I love the arrow striking the shield timing. Oh man, c'mon Nov 7th!!!
I have the X already paid off and I’m excited as hell. But is it just me or are these commercials all the same and really bad? Like yeah, we know what games are gonna be released for it. I don’t know. I keep watching these series of commercials and I can’t tell if they are even different.
Damn, even as someone that owns one you're still getting hit hard by the downvoting DefenseX X-Force Group X. Sad too because I thought this was a PRO-SONY site yet for some reason everyone that says anything slightly negative towards MS in these articles get's downvoted to oblivion. DAMN YOU N4G AND YOUR BIAS TOWARDS SONY AND PS4!!! Orrr...is this just the card MS fanboys use when Sony has all the good news since MS isn't doing anything special or important?
Badass. Dope song choice too. Fitting.
What a garbage trailer for a games console. Movies and CGI. Totally a show of power. That song was used better in the Power Rangers movie lol “True 4K” I guess checkerboard rendering is true 4K now?
Forza Motorsport 7: Native 4K Shadow of War: Native 4K Metro Exodus: Native 4K Forza Horizon 3: Native 4K Rise of the Tomb Raider: Native 4K Gears of War 4: Native 4K Halo 5: Native 4K Black Desert: Native 4K Pubg: Native 4K Sea of Thieves: Native 4K Need for Speed Payback: Native 4K State of Decay 2: Native 4K Shadow of War: Native 4K ...Do your homework troll and go back to your cave...
@NoPeace_Walker “Forza Motorsport 7: Native 4K Shadow of War: Native 4K Metro Exodus: Native 4K Forza Horizon 3: Native 4K Rise of the Tomb Raider: Native 4K Gears of War 4: Native 4K Halo 5: Native 4K Black Desert: Native 4K Pubg: Native 4K Sea of Thieves: Native 4K Need for Speed Payback: Native 4K State of Decay 2: Native 4K Shadow of War: Native 4K “...Do your homework troll and go back to your cave...” That’s a great list but how about you do a list of games that aren’t Native 4K since you’re making a big deal out of PS4 games that are aren’t?
Metro Exodus isn’t confirmed to be native 4K; they weren’t even running it on X at the Xbox press conference. Also, you listed shadow of War twice. Doesn’t matter, the majority of AAA games on X will checkerboard 4K. X is a fake 4K console with no exclusives. Gonna laugh so hard when PS4 and Switch bury that $500 “compromise 4K” console this holiday season.
@DialgaMarine No exclusives??? Crackdown 3 Alan Wake Ryse Sunset Overdrive Recore Fable Halo Wars Super Lucky's Tale Cuphead Age of Empires Quantum Break State of Decay 2 Ori Gears of War 4 Halo 5 Forza Motorsport 7 Forza Horizon 3 Killer Instinct + most powerful console + best version of third party titles are more than enough... Now go play GT: Sport... Don't worry about the reviews, it still has real pitstops...
You should do your homework 99.9% of those games are on Xbox One with enhancements not a big leap in power Metro Exodus isn't native 4k they're targeting it the game was running on PC at e3. #SCHOOLED http://gameranx.com/updates...
"I guess checkerboard rendering is true 4K now?" GT Sport-- 1800p CB/No 4K Texture - Fake 4K Forza 7-- 2160p no CB/4K Texture - True 4K ROTTombRaider(Pro)-- dynamic 4K/No 4K texture - Fake 4K ROTTombRaider(XBX)-- 2160p no CB/4K texture - True 4K Shadow of War(Pro)-- 1620p/No 4K texture - Fake 4K Shadow of War(XBX)-- 2160p/4K texture - True 4K Spider-man Homecoming Blu Ray(Pro)-- 1080p upscale - Fake 4K Spider-man Homecoming UHD Blu Ray(XBX)-- 2160P - True 4K Beastly True 4K.. it is!
I think most people don't care. The gain overall is so small in the grand scheme of things.
"The gain overall is so small in the grand scheme of things." Small? Looks massive to me. https://www.dualshockers.co... http://cdn.wccftech.com/wp-...
U wish it was small
Your first image isn't right see DFs followup and your second picture is indicative of much except that this game features lower textures on a Pro. I don't have a Pro but if I did I can assure you that no one really cares. And no one is impressed by this games visuals on any platform.
Eonjay, you once said you can spot the difference of a 1080p game and one that is of lower resolution on your 1080p TV and resolution matters back then, and matters now. Did you not say that? And now it is "no one will care?" 🤔
Yes. I can spot the difference between 1080 and 720p. I don't remember saying it but even if I didn't, I still can. I was never gonna buy an Xbox with weaker hardware for MORE money than a console that would have content I wanted, was more powerful and cost less. I think that most people won't care. That's what I said. How you conflate that to mean that "no one will care" is not my cross to bare.
"I can assure you that no one really cares." That is your quote.
I care because this whole gen I've been told too, those numbers are very impressive. Nice comparison list NoPeace Walker! It's funny, never cared about pixel counts till this gen, it was the main weapon against Xbox this whole time, now we see a total shift and suddenly it's not important. The hypocrisy is real people.
I have no idea what you are referring to but it is obviously something else. And not thi thread. Regardless most people I have spoken to aren't really caring about your assertions of True 4k vs Fake 4k because most people don't have the ability to even see beyond 1080p. It was supposed to be up to Microsoft to show that specs don't mean anything but instead they have been chasing Sony almost trying to affirm that they are losing because of power. Its not. Its games. The switch will never get to 1800p or 2600p or play a BluRay but people mostly don't care.
What games do the PS4 Pro run native 4K? Congrats on the X1X being faster while being newer and more expensive? Cool?
Does it really matter anymore?? Look at it this way: Checkerboard 4K rendering vs native 4K is of diminishing returns. Let's look at a beach it's boulders versus rocks for an (extreme) illustration, that was org XB1 to PS4, now we move to XBX vs PS4 Pro. To illustrate we start looking at sand in Hawaii compared to sand in CapeCod, USA. From the same distance that we were looking at the boulders and rocks. While the sand in Hawaii is much more fine than the course sand at the Cape we can't tell the difference really from that same distance as we were from the boulders and rocks. Sure if you get on your hands and knees ya it's a big difference from 6 inches away! Most sit at least 6 feet away from their sand errrr TV. So there ya have it… mehh. UHD Drive Ok I'll give ya that clear. PS4Pro should have had one.
Enjoy the power advantage for what.. probably 2 years.. then you can go back to talking about how power doesn't matter again.
Did you really just list a movie to support your argument?
@Dial Angainor7 just schooled you bro. That's what happens when you're attempting to be an edgy troll 😂
Nah, both of you just showed how much of tools you are lol Like I said, come end of the year, everyone will be laughing at your pathetic damage control when no one is buying the 4K Netflix box
I love how the PS4 Pro got BASHED HARD for claiming to game in 4K while using checkerboard rendering by the Xbox DefenseX Group but now that THEIR NEWER AND MORE EXPENSIVE console does the samething they need to list all the games that only support NATIVE 4K... @Angainor7 You mind making a list of all the games NOT using native 4K for X1X? How about all the games that are native 4K on the PS4 Pro?
It’s funny how he had to list a bunch of old games that no one cared about at launch, let alone now. Also, Age of Empires? Last I checked, that was only coming to PC, and it made all the Xbox fans cry at Gamescom because MS cares more about that than their own dying console brand.
Remember when everyone was salivating over that lawsuit Sony got when they advertised KZ:SF as 1080, and the MP used checkerboarding? I sure do. Funny what a few years and a shift in available power will change the views of many.
True 4K False Exclusives
Great commercial with a broad appeal. Not long now...
The 40% extra power is ok,no new interesting AAA exclusives no care to buy.
The buildup is killing me. Just gimmie my X NOW!!!
Wow, so much teasing and now the actual English trailer can't even make it to the top of N4G. Looks like the sizzle trailer, fizzled out.
Pretty great commercial
You know what I'm really sick of and why I don't just don't seem to care for the Xbox One X? It isn't the console, I'd actually be interested if it had PS4 exclusives since everything else it has is basically on or coming to PC, but it's Microsoft and the way they ADVERTISE. It's not the console or Xbox brand I dislike...I just don't like how all this generation MS just continues to harp and hype on and on about these features and stuff they have while seemingly NEVER delivering on squat. Cloud Power, DX12, Kinect 2.0, all the cancelled exclusives, 2.1 billion on a freakin' mining game...all to lead to basically nothing. And now we have the 4K with the X1X even though it uses non-4K and checkerboarding in a lot of games (just like the Pro)...so like, what's the difference? Sorry, I just get on these game news sites and read comments and get heated...just MS keeps shoveling out crap and not delivering and you people are still diehard fans...it's like...why, man? Why support a company that keeps shitting on you? Why support a company that keeps promising and hyping features that never come and you just ignore it?
You forgot Halolens. That billion dollars in game development. Maybe even that room projection thing, but that was never majorly advertised and more like a tech demo. Anyhow, the difference is, X1X will be able to deliver "native 4K" on maybe 1 in 10 games it releases, which makes it better I suppose. Checkerboarding on X1X will likely look better to some degree. How much remains to be seen IMO, but what I've seen so far doesn't seem to make it as substantial nor as fulfilling of the expectations that some people are making it out to be. Otherwise, I think many people who aren't blinded by the X1X hype agree with you to some degree. I'm sitting here wondering when MS is going to provide more for Xbox in general, as opposed to how good games will look on a mid-gen that I won't even own. I'd like to see more support for my OGX1, and since cuphead released, about all I have left to look forward to is some BC games, which doesn't exactly instill the hype that new experiences can.
Nothing was shown in game c'mon get real I'll say it until they prove me wrong there's nothing on the Xbox One X that impresses me enhanced games that came out on the original Xbox, Xbox 360 and Xbox One isn't doing it. It could be quite while before it impresses me show me Gears 5 that isn't on Xbox One and is built for Xbox One X then I'll get one.
