Microsoft's Xbox One S is out today in a 2TB configuration for $400, and the company is taking its first step into 4K with the system. But what if you are sticking with that 1080p set you just bought last year? Well, this is the review for you.
its a slim xbox with some extra features and some tiny power gains. its doing more than it needs to
lol upscale 4K gaming Waste of money, wait for native 4k gaming.
dont be daft
Upscale is not the way to go, don't stretch your image and upscale it, wait for Scorpio and get Native 4K. Waste of money to pay for upscale when native is right around the corner Common knowledge dude, don't be so daft!
Or just spend $1200 on the new Titan XP, am I right? $300 < $1200 Logic
Whats funny is if the neo change their specs to hdr10 everyone would go get a tv and system niw thats funny
I bought my tv for the neo before the slim was even announced. Now I'm buying the slim instead for UHD bluray.
Not sure why they keep mentioning the upscale thing as all 4k TVs upscale automatically so the Xbox doing it is moot. Also images that are 720 or 1080 actually upscale almost perfectly you won't see stretched images with 4k up-scaling like you did last gen when they were up-scaling from below 720p to 1080p.
Not exactly. If the upscaler in the Xbox is superior to the chipset in the TV, then the picture will be better and you may have less input lag due to processing.
While it is common for TV's to do this... it should not be. The device that is outputting the image to the TV should be doing the work of upscaling. And if they design it in such a way where the two scalers can work in tandem then it could produce a very nice picture in the end. both the unit and the set sharing the load of upscaling the picture or the device doing all the work is much better than the TV doing all the work.
Look forward to getting me one plus a 4K Samsung
Uhh......what were you expecting? The real update is coming with Scorpio, that much should be fairly obvious. I would certainly hope that gamers who already have an xbox one but not a 4k television would not be rushing out to buy an Xbox One S, that makes no sense whatsoever.
That was the point
1080p verdict on a 4K HDR console. Okay....
The article says the Xbox one S is smaller than PS4 but that's not right and it was already cleared on another article. Ps4: 30.3 depth x 27.6 width x ~5.4 height. 30.3 x 27.6 x 5.4 = 4516 cubic cm XB1s: 23.3 depth x 30.4 with x 7 height. 23.3 x 30.4 x 7 = 4958 cubic cm
They also say it's the best looking console I wan't to know what they are smoking.
It's still got a smaller footprint though and runs about 6-7db quieter too.
That information is incorrect and if you look at the photos the slanted edges of the PS4 cause it to have a larger footprint. PS4 takes up more space. @kraenk12 Nah, the console is loud and hot too. Looks like they need to go back to the drawing board.
So what you're actually saying is Sony is 3 years ahead again.
Even if you don't have a 4K UHD TV, there's no reason to buy an Xbox One except for price. The Xbox One S has a dramatically shrunken SoC (down to just 16nm from 28nm, offering a huge boost in efficiency) and has an overclocked GPU, faster ESRAM, etc. I'm also thinking the Xbox One S will take greater advantage of DX12-enabled games. The S also boosts frame rates of games with dynamic resolution (which a good portion of console games make use of) and uncapped frame rates. Also if you get an S, you're not locked to just 1080p gaming. You might not have a 4K tv NOW, but who knows what'll happen in the future?
"Just" a minor improvement? A slimmer, same priced console of the same generation that gets any improvement isn't "just" an improvement, IMHO. I'm not going to run out and pick one of these up just for that, I'm happy with my XBO, but for anyone that does or who buys it for the first time, that's not "just" a minor improvement. It's an improvement worth noting.
i mean this biased media is something else. its like damn if you do damn if you dont. smh
