Samsung calls theirs auto motion plus, Sony motion flow and vizio is clear motion (I believe).
Cinema/movie modes generally have Soap opera effect off as well as game mode.

Vivid and standard modes are usually set to high and looks quite unnatural.

It can be turned off or to your liking in the settings.

The Samsung KS8000 /KS8500 (curved) are stellar 4K/HDR displays with 7000:1 native contrast, nearly 1200 nit peak brightness and low input lag.
It has been the best TV I have ever owned, but if you want one now is the time to grab it supplies are running low.

Since it is a 2016 model it is getting harder to find.

Sony is using LG OLED panels for the A1.
LG and Sony released 77" models the are $14,999.99 (LG) and $19,999,99 (Sony), so you'll be paying a premium for Sony's processing.

Dual layer blu ray displays top out at 50gb, but could in theory cram more data through compression.
If you start compressing to much you'll start seeing diminishing returns.
Uhd disc triple layer can go up to 100gb triple layer, but the increased cost of the disc would be passed on to developers.
Hard drives are faster than the currently employed UHD drive in the XB1S /X,so it makes sense for them to use the HDD.

Of all the things complained about post E3 the size on the One X wasn't on the list. They have been able to cram 4 additional gigs of ram and new SoC with vapor cooling solution at a smaller size than the S.

I grabbed it on a sale as well as Wolfenstein :The new order. Two of the best purchases I have made in awhile.
Now waiting for Wolfenstein :Old blood to drop again.

In an earlier article Spencer when ask if it would be "True 4k" he answered with, "games will have a 4k frame buffer."
Developers will choose how the power of this system is utilized.

I can't recommend the Sony X900E enough. I picked up the 49" model and the nearly 900nit peak brightness, triluminous display for wide color gamut and full array local dimming for improve contrast and HDR performance are fantastic.

Check out digital foundry's updated boost mode game test. Bloodborne is one there .

The original PS4 architecture is intact. In several interviews including the Digital foundry interview with Cerny, he said this is not a next gen console the CPU,RAM and GPU are exactly the same.
The one major difference is the addition of a 2nd identical GPU on the same chip that when Pro Enhanced games are being played the two run in tandem. This is similar to AMD's crossfire running dual GPU's
I think we'll have a year or two max with Sony sticking to parity...

I own a Sony X800D and bought the pro at launch. I had an issue the first day that it would only display HDR content at 1080p/yuv420.
I simply switched to HDMI port two and all was well with the world.
Some manufacturers still go by the input 1 mentality and will usually use the lower spec 1.4a instead of 2.0,since most STB don't output at 4K.
If you do have pro issues simply switch ports and see if that helps.

3D printing an enclosure is some serious dedication........and if I had a 3D printer I would too.

Some devs will be outputting at 1440p checkerboard up to 2160p,but the system itself will support a [email protected] over HDMI 1.4 and an HDMI 2.0 mode.

It will have no improvements to non-Pro supported titles. I am sure the built in upscaler will make a little difference,no improvements to frame rate will be seen.

Sony was an undisputed leader going into the PS3 generation and everyone had already written off MS with their oddly named 360.
Sony introduced the PS3 as a boutique electronics device that would power our lives,but would have to have a second job to afford. Sony and Kutaragi-sans decision to build that product nearly bankrupted the company.
We had an extended lifecycle do to an ailing games market and the AMD SoC was the only that either company would be able to even make a...

I am with you GTgamer. I have mine paid for and Seagate is introducing a 5tb 2.5 HDD for a whopping $85. I have also been checking out some smaller HDD's with a faster 7200rpm.

I have tried both the Last of us and infamous:first light with the HDR update and have been blown away. Infamous is far more impressive,but TLoU will likely be much better running native 4K.
I know it's a stopgap measure and Scorpio will reign over gaming as the new console king,but for now I will be completely happy with my shiny new (matte black that is) console to go nicely with my 4K/HDR display.

I am currently playing through the beginning hour of the game with the HDR update applied and am truly impressed with Sony's HDR implementation. Been switching back and for between w/HDR and wo/HDR and the additional detail brought out is pretty great. More natural colors,contrast is greatly improved and texture quality feel overall better.

I recently purchased an X1 (S) and Preordered my pro on the same day. The S will fill the void missing from the Pro with the inclusion of a UHD Bluray drive. The Pro will give me a taste of what to expect from from Scorpio next fall.
I bought a 4K/HDR XBR display from Sony to take advantage of the upcoming new consoles.

I am glad we have these two tech giants challenging each other,because it will only end up benefitting the consumer.

I am a fanboy of g...
