ThisGenGaming says "Gears Of War 3 looks incredible in a new 4K Enhanced patch, here's a look at the comparison."
Wow, amazing improvement!!
Holy shit Microsoft. WELL DONE.
My days that is impressive. Also crazy how good Gears 3 looks considering its a last gen title
Weird. There is hardly much of a difference to the Xbox One from the 360 but the XB1X all of the sudden makes it looks fresh and new.
The game was on PC so I bet they dropped in the PC assets and thats why its such a difference, great move though
so amazing it makes 360 games look good!!! looking @ all the fanboys giggling in front of the obvious really is touching!!
^^LOL at the insecurity. The same people who dribble over remasters they would gladly pay but apparently a free update showing a massive increase in quality of older games is nothing to be excited about 😂 The X1 has hurt these fanboys so hard! 😁😁
No gonna lie, this is pretty damn impressive! It looks remastered!
I now see why MS only remastered/remade the first Gears. With the power of the X, it does it even better better without even breaking a sweat. Can you imagine other BC games such as Red Dead Redemption getting the same enhancement on the X!? 😮😮
Really what’s next halo Xbox on xbox1x of course it would look amazing. This is a dumb comparison if it would show drastically improvement on gow4 then I would be impressed but this is just useless fluff
Now if only they can make some new ip's and exclusives.
Now if only we could come up with better comments in every xbox article.
@Lennoxb63 You don't need to, while those still work.
Now only PlayStation fans would stay out of Xb threads.
Wow. This isn't even officially "enhanced for Xbox One X" is it?
Yes it is, which is awesome. Mirrors Edge also got updated.
I saw mirror's edge in my games and apps as enhanced, I didn't see Gears 3 in there. Although supposedly that sorting feature isn't working properly for all games, it doesn't list AC: Origins for me either and I know that update is already out.
Wait what? Mirrors edge without jaggies??
That’s just ridiculous!!!
It's amazing alright!
Disagree goblins everywhere lately. Oh well, won't rain on my parade.
Honestly you can complain about MS' Software all you want, I totally get that, but how do you complain about this impressive piece of hardware? The fact that its capable of enhancing old games without an official patch is impressive (just go check out those oblivion comparisons). The fact that it, if utilized properly, can include 4k textures and not just 4k upres is impressive. MS now just needs to step up their software and they could easily start gaining more traction in the gaming community again.
Jealousy by Sony fans is what you are seeing. They literally disagree with anything positive for the Xbox. Its petty and pathetic.
Wait until they show Red Dead Redemption, that is the game I want to see.
That was impressive! Not every Sony fan is hateful. I've never owned an Xbox console but that makes anyone a little jealous. This will open great doors to push gaming further. All you Xbox fans... Enjoy. @moldy: I would love to see what red dead redemption would look like.
@ Bobafret those are the plaslave police that are doing the down voting to anything positive. they are apart of that dummy movement called PS4P (Policing. Satisfaction. 4. Players.)
Sometimes I have to wonder if its the mods themselves.
I laughed yesterday when I stated there were large queues of people picking up the xbox x at my local store and I got disagrees. Opinions you can disagree with, but disagreeing with that was kind of ridiculous.
Maybe you got disagrees because you just saying things in a comment section of a web site doesn't prove anything. Here let me try, on that same day I saw fifty times as many people buying PS4 Pro's there did it work did you believe me just because I said it. Probably not, now down vote me.
Must be bothering you since you took the time to comment about it.
Maybe you are right with your reply. But it is a pretty pathetic thing to disagree with. For the record it was a genuine comment. I was more curious if others had experienced queues.
Oh, it's you again.
Damn Beanz, do you literally just scrounge the Xbox posts and post negative shit all day? I'm at work, what's your excuse?
@WilliamSheridan I feel sorry for your employer shouldn't you be working?
Why waste money on making remasters when BC enhanced look this good on the X and cost the gamers nothing if you already have the game? Jaw dropping! Another killer feature of the Beast.
this is exactly what a "remaster" is. Sony came up with a marketing term so they could sell old games running on their emulator rendered at higher resolution. "Remaster" doesnt even make sense, video games arent ever mastered in the first place.
Only sony did this? Wasn't master chief collection one of the biggest focal points for xbox going into this gen?
@skank You undertsand that remasters was started way before this generation of consoles right? They were doing remasters back in the PS3/360 days...its not new and certainly not something that was started with MCC (which uses completely new cutscenes, geometry, and audio in some cases) haha. Fact is Sony has made a living selling PS gamers old games at a premium throgh remasters and PS Now...I am absolutely in love with Microsoft's approach of the remaster with X.
The concept of a “remaster” existed long before PS3. Nintendo was doing enhanced ports of NES titles on SNES and so on. Hell, are people not aware of the Super Mario Advanced series on GBA? There were at least 4 of them, all of which were remastered ports of NES/ SNES Mario games. Reselling a game with minor improvements on new hardware is nothing new, and it’s not something Sony exclusively does. MCC says hi.
Makes me wonder if this kills that revenue stream on the X1 as far as remasters go.
No it would just mean they would need to be remakes instead. So they would at least need new textures, new characters models etc. What I think it does it get rid of the need and excuse for having poor remasters that we see with minimal changes.
Awh man seriously you almost sold me there, your sales pitch is getting better and better. And here I thought we'd see less of that from you what with you spending so much time playing your x, guess I was wrong.
Enhanced 360 games is certainly an unexpected bonus. Not a huge selling point for me, but one of a flurry of nice touches for the X.
I disagree this is one of the main reasons to validate buying it ... just going back to ur backlog and not having to feel ur playing an outdated game is awesome enough ... I d love to see a comparision of remasters to originals running in 4k ... i bet some will show that the remasters were pretty lazy
Amazing. The future is X.
X? That’s a funny way to spell “PS5” lol
These character models have stacked up very well for being 6 years old. Epic were technical wizards when they developed AAA games.
Incoming (have fun paying $500 to play old games in 4k) comments in 3...2..1. It's impossible to hate on this. I'd love for ONE person to intelligently tell me the negative here. I'll wait...
We cant chief, clearly you've already fully convinced yourself this is a good idea. We wont ask you to intelligently explain to us why it makes sense to buy a new $500 console to play"enhanced" versions of old ass games because we wouldn't get an intelligent answer in the first place.
Way to deflect my statement there chief.
@BLKxSEPTEMBER Well at least your comments aren't without a sense of irony.
Not sure why people have to put a downer on everything. "Other people are enjoying something, let's make them feel like shit"
I swear some companies call these re-masters and charge £29.99 😋😋😋
thats exactly what they do. Sony made an emulator but locks each game behind a paywall. Almost every single "remaster" is just an emulated old game rendered at higher resolution.
Microsoft doesn't do that?
Ive been getting nothing but improved versions of BC titles ORGANICALLY on Xbox One and now X through out the years. Even when Microsoft did do a simi remaster like Voodoo Vince and Phantom Dust, Ive gotten both for free. Microsoft simply has a much better approach to the remaster...or in this case, simply improving BC titles for free.
You probably have a point with State of Decay YOSE remaster, but that's the only exception which comes to mind. None of MS' other remastered efforts hit that insane bar of increased pricing THEBIG360's talking about--without a more substantial effort put in, of course.
The last remaster MS did was Phantom Dust and they gave that away for free. They are, however, currently working on Age of empires remaster for PC.
Often those companies would sell their " remasters" for $60.
It will be super sweet walking into a store, and picking up a 360 game for a few dollars knowing it will be a 4k beast when you pop it into the X. Didn't expect 360 games to get this kind of love. Amazing work MS!
i notice the difference myself and everything, but why is it when its the same sort of upgrade on a ps4 pro a bunch of people pop up saying they cant see a difference?
Because fan boys. I use to be one until I realized I don't own stock in Sony, Microsoft, or Nintendo so I have 0 reason to argue or try to sway anyones opinion nowadays. I think a lot of is is people feel personally attacked if their only console or console of choice is berated. Others feel the need to justify their purchases for some reason. It's kind of comical when you think about it. These companies have free advertisement just through these overly excited fans talking one or the other up or down. Full disclosure. I only have a PS4 as current console and don't plan to get an X because it just does not fit what I'm looking for personally plus I'm broke and frugal anyways. Good for everyone that got the X though if that's your preferred console. Just think if the fan boy war would die down all gamers would benefit because we could hold the console makers and game devs more accountable for things that are becoming far more common like releasing broken games, games riddled with microtransactions ( I mean the P2W ones ), etc. We would have a bigger collective to truly vote with our wallets with less bickering. Meaning we would all get higher quality and value for our money across all platforms.
"same sort of upgrade on a ps4 pro" I think the difference is no one is comparing an old PS3 game that is playable on the PS4 Pro like what is being shown here. There is a 100% noticeable difference and the fact that all you need is the game and a Xbox X is even more impressive.
@kevnb "i notice the difference myself and everything, but why is it when its the same sort of upgrade on a ps4 pro a bunch of people pop up saying they cant see a difference?" Where are the PS3 games on the PS4 that are a free upgrade where the hardware improves them like this?
Name me another console in the history of videogames that put this much love into making games you've already bought feel this fresh and new again....FOR FREE!?!? The fam fair Microsoft is given us has been nothing short of astounding!
No other company would waste their time doing this as it makes absolutely no sense business wise to invest in. You boast about this with such pride as if buying a 500 dollar console to replay games you already own is something to gloat about.
it doesnt make sense to support old software people can still buy and do all you can to keep people in your eco system? To me it seems very cost effective and it makes the competition look anti consumer.
So in other words, you cant name such a console then? You sound like an idiot because this is the whole point of my question haha. Microsoft is giving us remasters FOR FREE...even when "it makes absolutely no sense business wise to invest in." This is at a time when Sony is making tons of money re-selling games to you that youve already bought through remasters and PS Now. Microsoft is doing it as a benefit to the GAMER...and you wonder why I sound proud??? Get ya mind right buddy...I know its in you to want to defend Sony at all costs but dont make yourself look like a fool in the process.
