This thing is a true 4k beast. The best 500 dollar purchase I've ever made!
Xerneas X1X one my best purchase as well... and let me add to the Macaroni Pony community for keeping the PS4 at a high trade-in rate... making my so called waste of $500 purchase so easy minimum out of pocket. Thank to the Uncharted Bundle and few games(who knew a lot of humanoids love that shit)... Like Rick Flair "Woo"
Gears of War 4 being number 1 is no surprise. The difference in quality in the multiplayer is now better looking then the single player. Its pretty insane to be honest.
Ive only got a 1080p tv and I still see a massive difference in gears 4 looks amazing. Cant wait to fire Halo up to.
Gears 4 was already a great looking game I bet it looks crazy good with the enhancements
The HDR is a game changer. Beats even the PC version which was already a benchmark game. Although they really should add HDR to PC, sigh.
II'll have to check it out then and it sounds like what I'm hearing that 4K + HDR makes a big difference
I’ve got all of them except Conan and Battlefront. I refuse to buy Battlefront because of the pay to win MP, but I might buy Conan
I will wait until it comes out free on EA access.
Conan is pretty good!
I can't wait to play these titles again enhanced! I also want to play the witcher 3 enhanced
That's what they want to hear, good not mate.
Just ordered Witcher 3 Game of the year. I played the single player and first expansion on PS4. Hoping to jump straight into the last expansion on the Xbox, I think you can do this and it just auto levels your player.
I really want to play Halo 5 on the one X It looks absolute gorgeous.
It really is beautiful. When I heard there was no HDR I was pretty disappointing but once I started playing, the game is just stunning in 4k. Such an awesome game too
Just as I expected Forza, Gears, Halo and a bunch of multiplats.
Yeah, it’s impressive to see Microsoft supporting their core exclusives and a bunch of multiplats.
It's also impressive that they have no new standout IP's in 3 years of console making.
@Xx So... what’s your point?
Quantum Break, Recore and Sea of Thieves are all new and from the last three years.
@Death Recore wasn't made by Microsoft and I would call a stand out game. I don't think Sea of thieves is going to be the next Halo.
In all fairness, the only “stand out” game Sony has created this gen is Horizon. They have relied on third party more than usual to create games. If you want to discount Microsoft’s exclusives, the same should hold true for Sony. Bloodborne was a stand out, but it was created by From software. For all the praise Driveclub received after it’s disappointing launch, it still resulted in Sony shutting down the studio. What first party games are you referring to?
@jmetalhead77812 Microsoft need to invest in making some IP's. And good IP's at that. The last time they won GOTY was Halo 3.
@Death they also did great with Bloodborne a new IP and was make in conjunction with Sony's Japan Studio. And make the Uncharted series bigger and better than it was before. And that's without getting in to Spiderman, God of War and last of Us 2 potentially the biggest games they have. Other than turn 10 Microsoft just doesn't have developer talent.
Im going to hold out until the beast killer (ps5) launches. Ms needs must have exclusives that arent years old... Id love to see what games Phillip Spencer claims are in the works... Please dear god i hope they arent like forza, gears, or halo. I great jrpg or rpg would be very much welcome like some of the amazing stuff that came to the 3fixme
I'm actually anxious to see what the next Halo Gears and Forza look like running on Xbox One X especially Halo 6 and Gears 5 and we already know Forza Horizon 4 will make heads explode
Assassin's creed origins should be on this list i cant get over how good it looks! Super keen to replay tomb raider i was so impressed with it running on the native 4k option! Also infinitewarfare singleplayer looks pretty darn good with the one x enhancements aswell.
From what I have been reading, Wolfenstein need to be on there too.
Xbox really needs some new games for their platform. It’s almost 2018and all people are talking about is tomb raider gears 4 halo 5 witcher 3 patch and a new forza. It’s like if going into 2018 ps4 fans were most excited about uncharted 4 and bloodborne.
It does have plenty of new games your obviously just blind or something! Nothing wrong with these games you just mentioned either especially when the one x patches them to make them look just as good as any other game! And last year the ps4 pro didnt exactly launch with any good exclusives what did i end upl playing all november december? skyrim special edition! Why cause its just as good as anyother game in the market and its great playing your favourite games looking better then ever.
I played enhanced versions of new releases like Gravity Rush 2, NIOH, Nier, Horizon, Wipeout, Crash Bandicoot, Persona 5, Uncharted Lost Legacy, Yakuza, Last Guardian and a bunch of Indies like Parrapa, Journey, LocoRoco, Patapon etc within the first 6-8 months of the Pro releasing. Then I went back and played patched versions of titles like Uncharted 4, Ratchet and Clank, Infamous, The Last of Us and Kilkzone. This is on top of all the multiplatform titles that were enhanced.
Hey I’m not blind. There are tons of great games to play on Xbox. Just nothing really new and exciting that stands out like on the other platforms. If ya look back in my comment history you’ll see my posts really defending the Xbox and arguing against the narrative they had no game. Ps fans gave me massive disagrees. Anyways the great games i talked about were things like halo mcc halo 5 sunset over drive rise of tomb raider quantum break. I even mentioned titles like Alan wake I enjoyed and splosion man on back compat. Problem is since then not much has changed. This year what did they add to their roster? Halo wars 2. In a year Sony saw horizon and neir. Nioh and he’ll blade. And lost legacy. And Nintendo saw odyssey and breath of the wild. New splatoon and arms. Xenoblade and Mario + rabbids. All I’m saying is Xbox needs some new games. Do you disagree? What they had planned for the year fell thru. Crackdown got pushed back. Scalebound canceled. And what was left didn’t really stand out. I don’t think I’m biased or unfair to say that Xbox didn’t have software that stood out this year. I wouldn’t say that in previous years tho when halo 5 gears 4 quantum break or rise of tomb raider came out.
To continue, I think I will still get an Xbox one x by trading in my one s soon. But it’s a purchase predicated on hope! I have to believe they have something in the tank! But honestly I know halo 6 will be great. But it’s not exciting Cus I know about It. I know it’s coming. And something like anthem looks great too but it’s on PlayStation as well. They just need some NEW and EXCITING. Super lucky tale doesn’t make the cut. It can’t compare to ratchet and clank or even super Mario 3D world much less odyssey. I’ll get the one x. Enjoy some multiplats on it enjoy the free back compat games like stick of truth and enjoy 360 games loading and playing better than ever. But I really want something big and exciting from them that isn’t halo or gears.
Last of Us and God of War.. same difference.
Well Sony is showing off Shadow of the colossus remastered and Sony fans are getting excited about that right? And that game is a few years old. People should be talking about Forza. The game just came out and looks AWESOME on the 1X!
Honestly my 500 investment was the right choice the graphics made my jaw drop like never before this is the future
When I upgraded to gtx 1080, I just called my old games "OLD GAMES".
When i upgraded to my strix 1080ti i saw my old games as they were games and now i have the power to push those games beyond their limits
That what as I was trying to say I was shocked that I got agrees. fanboys must have misunderstood me, I called them "OLD GAMES" but played it again on ultra settings. fanboys are treating this "ENHANCED" settings like a it's something magical and actually think that xbox one x can beat high end pc's.
there was launch titles for PS4 Switch Xbox one There is no such thing as launch titles for PS4 Pro Xbox one X they are enhanced titles that mainly already exist on the xbox one/ps4 before the id gen machines released
