Dolby Vision hits Xbox One in the coming weeks – with support for discs reportedly slated for the fall.
Amazing! THAT WAS FAST!!! Great Job Xbox Team!
Damn that was quick
I have a TV that supports Dolby Vision so I'm really looking forward to this update.
Man the next Xbox is going to be amazing. The X is a beautiful machine with so many features it makes you wonder what they have in store for the next machine.
and whats this so many features you speak off?
Go look it up for yourself. MS updates the X with MANY new features consistently. Anyone who owns an X knows this to be true.
@carmelo Its selling better than the PS4 Pro, so something must be going right
Well, Dolby Atmos, it has a 4k Bluray player, now Dolby Vision. It loads games faster, and they run better. My X1X is way better than my S was.
It's selling to people dumping their OG XBox. Many PS4 owners are still happy with their OG PS4 and felt no need to upgrade if they didn't have a 4K set. The X1X is surely better than the OG X1 but it's sales numbers reflect how poorly that orig console was received even by XB fans.
With all these updates, it's clear they cannot be beaten, great job Microsoft.
your joking rite? system cant even keep up with the switch
Wow. I think this means xone s will be the cheapest dolby vision HDR system on market.
No, but close https://www.amazon.com/Sony...
You could pick up the discontinued 500 GB Xbox One S for like $220, so I think most smart consumers would just pay the extra $30 or so and get a whole gaming system on top of a great media player.
@Bruh Except for those who have zero interest in gaming and want a simpler device. But yes, given the choice that is the better deal for what it provides.
Now all they need is support for HDR 10+ which works in the same way as Dolby Vision. Like Dolby Vision, HDR10+ is all about adding dynamic metadata to the HDR signal. HDR10+ is a free, open format that any company can tweak and deploy as it sees fit. https://www.whathifi.com/ad...
Are there any companies supporting HDR10+ yet? I know Amazon was hoping too a while back but haven't heard much about it since.
I don't think the format has been completely finalized yet. AFAIK, there are no displays that support it yet, but anything made for this year or in the future should be able to handle it with just a firmware update. Older displays may or may not support it, and whether it gets an update will depend on the TV maker deciding to do so. As far as media, there are no UHD discs released yet, and I don't think the major streaming services are using it yet...probably because there are so few displays that support it.
Samsung and Panasonic account for a substantial chunk of the global TV marketplace and both support HDR10+. Samsung and Panasonic's new TVs have HDR10+ on their new 4K HDR TV's and Panasonic are releasing their new 4K Blu-Ray players very soon and their premier UB820 model will support HDR10, HDR10+ and Dolby Vision https://blogs.panasonic.com... 20th Century Fox, Warner Bros and Amazon are on board with HDR10+ and Amazon Prime have well over 100 titles with HDR10+. Netflix have said that they are open to supporting it. https://ce-pro.eu/news/home... Samsung’s support for HDR10+ almost guarantees its success with it being the world’s largest TV manufacturer, with the alliance currently claiming that ‘more than 25 companies spanning many different industries have expressed strong interest in supporting the HDR10+ platform.
Everybody thought this console was gunna be bonk when Microsoft first talked about the restrictive DRM policy, but just look at it now! It's got it all!
> It's got it all! Ehmmm, nah, too easy!
