I am going to finally make time to play this. Had it just sitting on my hard drive for a while. Got to get back to Witcher3 too.

Wish Witcher 3 was getting hdr

Wooo more Atmos. That seals the deal for me, PC save file can go on permanent hold.

fantastic! This is a game i actually have on both consoles (got it for free cuz i worked on the cinematics). It will be interesting to swap back and forth between my Pro and my X to see the comparisons.

X1X is a beast, got tomb raider in the queued.
Gears 4 takes forever to install!

No new consoles better come out,two years then we can talk.

I'm a XBOX one X switch pro-gamer.

Agreed. If a new Xbox comes out within 2 years I'm gonna flip.
I'll be honest though, tomb raider was so beautiful before that it's hard to see unless you already no. My fiance was like, meh

HDR and 60fps is what I care about the most.
4k is cool too but HDR makes the color pop!


I need to rebut this game. It's one of the few I bought on disk but later sold it. That is why I'm pure digital I'd rather keep my games then sale them. Hopefully I can get this for 20 or so. Looking forward to playing this on my 1X

Just got my x1 and damn if the high frame rate mode is 1080p it looks like trash. Like Vaseline is all over my screen. Is it running at 1080p because if it is i don't want to go back to that.

1080p/60fps mode also uses high AA not just regular 1080p resolution like the S has. Much sharper but not native 4K..but still good enough to enjoy the visuals/game.
