This Halo 5: Guardians Xbox One/Xbox One X comparison showcases in a crystal clear way the major visual upgrade delivered by the new console.
Haven't played it yet. Looks great!
Looks great visually but there is still some pop-in.
Damn the campaign already looked great, was hoping to see multiplayer, I remember in Warzone the graphics were so bad it made my eyes bleed flying into the map, the foliage was sooooo bad.
Sorry but all I noticed was better lighting. To me Xbox One X is hyperbole and just a faux news ploy.
Halo 5 running on Xbox One X, even when unpatched for it, was shown to have increased draw distance, decreased pop in, decreased or absent resolution scaling and increased texture filtering.
Thats funny I've read quite a bit from people who are known to state what they believe no matter what (ex: Arthur Gies) and they say the difference is stunning. But what do the people who actually have the X1X know over you. Nothing you know so much more.
Best go back to the inferior console or the other one that pretends to be a console.
Nice. It's like taking a 900p game and than changing it to 1440p
Xbox One X has redefined the meaning of enhanced to ENHANCED!
Unfortunately as the video shows you need a zooming fest to spot differences, as already remarked is not noticeable.
@russo121 Whatever you said, dude. ;)
@Russo, Its funny the difference between 900p and 1080p used to hurt PS fans eyes and give them headaches. Now the difference between 900p and 4K is not noticeable. HAHA
Actually its been redefined to pause and zoom way in.
Looks. So. Good.
That draw distance is gorgeous.
It’s about time it was on a console that could play it properly
Exactly. This game was over designed for the console it launched on. It looked great about 3 feet from the player. Then the quality drops off dramatically. It was so distracting, I never finished. I look forward to finally completing this game on a console that can run it properly. And from the Halo Wars 2 storyline has shown, I am VERY excited for what's in store for the next main line Halo game.
@Trekster_Gamer What about my comment has suggested to you that I'm a "Fanboy". I just stated facts. Halo 5's dynamic scaler DOES drop off dramatically the further out the scene is from the player. It's pretty aggressive. Once you see it, you can't un-see it. If anyone is a "fanboy" here, it's you.
https://www.google.com/amp/... He’s right. Digital Foundry also made note of this.
@Sunny_D I'm not surprised at the disagrees. N4G is one of the places where people disagree with you for stating facts.
I felt the same way about Gears 4. It looked so smeared. I can't wait to play it as it was intended, because it looks like a great entry.
now, if only the game was as good as the visual upgrades
Best MP FPS this gen, dont worry its good
For a 60 fps title it looks great lol.
the MP is excellent
Which it is. Gameplay is butter smooth and MP is one of the best in the market.
Wonder if they're gonna bother changing the 30FPS animations of distant enemies? Looks great every other way though.
That would be cool, but I doubt it.
Yeah I hope they do but we will see. Also a bummer HDR couldn’t be implemented. Halo 6 is gonna be incredible looking, Halo is perfect for HDR and now the power of the X is gonna maybe take the graphics crown once again!
Yeah they need to sort that, particularly in Warzone
Looks generally cleaner and sharper. Not much done with added textures. Not sure this is the enhanced version, but it obviously looks better.
A Beastly difference! Halo 5, Gears 4, and Wircher 3 are 3 of the games that I'll be definitely be playing again in 4K glory.
Looks great, but a shame they weren't able to add HDR. I hope it comes later. This game was made for HDR with all the lighting.
Halo already features a lot of bloom. HDR might be overkill.
that would sear my eyes 😨
Xbox One X puts some lotion on Halo 5.
Halo has been touched by the beast
El Señor Chief
"No one man should have all this Powhaaa"
looks great especially the stuff in the distance, its basically like the step 1080p blu ray was up from dvd.
I've been having a blast in oddball and the new weapons balance is probably the best thing 343 added to halo 5, gunplay feels a little more on par with the beta they had (in regards to the pistol, but h5's pistol has always been great, its just better now) for halo 5 way back. I didn't even realize oddball was missing, never was the biggest fan of it but can't deny how damn fun it is. When I get my X (had to cancel my preorder because I switched jobs last second and couldn't even pay my phone for like 3 weeks) this will be the first thing I play. Really glad MS doesn't forget about there older releases, not too many games get supported like how gears 4 and halo 5 get supported to this day, besides like titanfall 2 and overwatch.
Interestingly you can see the balance changes with the AR in this video, in the X1X version the reticle is a lot smaller (although the damage was reduced quite a bit). Haven't tried the new balance yet, but I love how transparent they were over the test results.
These are noo "major" improvements to the xbone s...especially considering you are sitting few feets away on your couch...and in the heat of Battle you will hardly notice these differences...paying 500 for a small visual upgrade is just too much...i will stick to my xbone s.
Yeah stick to gaming at 720 .
You need to really view it on a 4k tv. Imagine playing xbox one games in 480i, they would look outdated quickly. The difference is definitely there.
My issue with Xbox is while I have great games from Nintendo and Sony to talk about, all I can say about Xbox is that we have a new console that can make your games look prettier...no excitement at all on the games front.
So many great games yet you aren’t playing them?!
State of Decay 2 and ori 2 are on my most anticipated list... Still have a couple reservations for crackdown 3 and sea of Thieves, but both look like fun times. I have been enjoying the sea of Thieves alpha
that's fine play those games on those systems anyone who says there are no games on xbox are just talking crap there are loads of games just not the ones you want.
The differences are so marginal that it isn’t worth the upgrade to an X1X at all based on that video. Think it will be 2 years before it really makes use of that extra power as that video demonstration was disappointing. It shows it when the live side by side battle section is virtually impossible to notice a single difference. Screenshots are one thing but live gameplay is what matters and the improvments are hardly breathtaking to anyone that just laid down huge dollars on this expecting a big evolution. X1X is the future of console gaming performance......sadly that future is still 2 years of game development time away to fully show it off. Until then, my money is staying in my wallet until the differences are literally mind blowing and the current generatiom X1 is unable to come close to it.
All your seeing are better textures and draw distance. You aren't seeing it in 4k which will make a difference
That’s because this video isn’t in 4K Nor is this even patched. It’s just the game running at 1080p on the X. You do realize the console isn’t out yet right? So any footage you see of games on it aren’t patched.
It definitely looks crisper from the resolution update but I thought they were going to do a texture update as well.
I can't wait to get my X, I haven't played Halo 5, Quantum Break or Rise or the Tomb raider.. This is gonna be great!!!!
You're in for a treat. Some great games!
Another mediocre game getting an update from years ago that hardly no one plays anymore... I'm sorry let me rephrase... a game that no one plays but hardcore halo fans.
A positive Xbox article wouldn't be the same without you. Seems your productivity is increasing the closer we get to the 7th. Keep up the good work soldier.
Halo 5 hasn't been updated yet, this just shows how how good the hardware is for unpatched games
They could have just patched in improved textures to the Xbox one game
News flash. Idiot writes about something he does not know about. Makes up statistics, and can't formulate a coherent sentience. READ ALL ABOUT IT!
Just watched this on a 4k screen & it definitely looks crisper & cleaner on the XBOX but they compared this with the regular XBO.I'm quite sure folks that own an XBOS the comparison is minute & not at all a deal breaker to go out & spend $500 on the X.
Half assed campaign.... simply incredible MP.
Always hated halos water but love me some John 117! Going to run through it for the 3rd time
I cant wait to get back on this game the enhancements look great. Tuesday needs to hurry up and get here.
"I hope you enjoyed your time with the Xbox One Early Access Alpha test, we are now releasing the the final retail version. " :)
Good comparison. This guy knows how to do it right. That DualShock COD:WWII was balls bad. Why? Well unlike this video that had the same scene match up pretty well each of the DualShock had the images completely different positions from PS4 Pro vs Xbox X. It was obvious how the placements of the character was in different locations. Here the images were spot on in the same location. In COD it was so bad that sometimes he was holding different weapons then the Xbox One X version then the Pro version. Characters were a great deal closer or farther or assets were blocked by the location image they were comparing it to on the Xbox. Is was quite annoying. If the image being compared locations aren't going to be exact as possible then your comparison gets polluted by issues in of the environment like how lighting and other fidelity issues affect everything. No side by side images but, DualShock forces you to toggle between images yourself. You don't get a full feel of the difference in that type of comparison. Not saying the Pro version didn't look good in COD, it did. Just that it was badly done comparison and DualShock should take lessons form this comparison.
