This has been a very welcome bonus so far. Not just the more stable framerates, but the huge boost to load times and responsiveness in game menus etc.
I agree, it's help the majority of games but I tried Dead Rising 3 on X1X and it ran the the same and also had some graphical bugs that aren't there on the X1S. I would love for them to release an Xbox One X enhanced patch for this game. It's one of my favorites.
I was wondering if X would finally make that game playable haha. I guess not.
yeah DR 3 is stuck at 30 frames but thank god there is a 60FPS fix on PC
I tried DR3 also on my X. It ran at a locked 30fps with no dips. It was super smooth and load times are greatly reduced. Honestly it was perfect
Agreed my friend has the box and said it's not that much of a noticeable difference...not sure what everyones so excited about. He also said some games are glitchy but the menu response is improved.
Something you could have had all along on a base PS4.
Thank you hamburgler...for that. I'll have the ferret.
Yes I could have, but I'd also have that crap controller and be on a different system than all of my friends. I only play games on PS4 that I can't play on Xbox.
I have a base PS4, and those issues still existed. In fact in some cases like Destiny 2 slowdowns and menu's even worse.
this is another release first fix later mentality at its finest. not only games are getting this treatment, but now consoles too?? that's one hell of an expensive "fix"! $500!
What happens when you buy gimped consoles and trying to justify the butt hurt.
I think the group who called PS4 Pro a pointless console failed to realize that it has done this for a while now. It was to be expected for the X.
I thought it had some weird "boost mode" thing that didn't necessarily work on all games. I know it did not originally do this at launch, it was an added feature later on, right?
Really designed this thing the right way.
This is nothing new, why are ppl so surprised by this? PS4 Pro has been doing this for a while with Boost Mode. Games like AC Unity and Just Cause 3 run much better on Pro even without a patch. These are the perks of these mid gen upgrades. Even unpatched games can have better framerates, faster loads, more stable resolution ect. Been enjoying this feature for a while now.
Didn't mention PS4 and didn't say anything about being surprised, so maybe you replied to the wrong person.
So many games I've yet to play. Can't wait to get my X1X .
You're gonna love it.
Nice a product that will force xbox owners to upgrade, base xbox sucks so much that you wanna upgrade.
The X Is so good in so many levels!!
What about for new exclusives, is it good for that?
Super Lucky's Tale is the GOAT! :3
I can't wait to play Battleground in November 😀
How about Just Cause 3? Didn’t that run like a bag of shit on everything apart from high end PC’s??
The X also smooths out JC3, runs much better. I just played it.
Check out the Witcher 3 on the X https://youtu.be/KegF4rsG7_...
Yeah that is the first game I thought of as well. Also I remember Mad Max stuttering in one zone for not apparent reason just while driving around. I fired that up last night and drove around and it was perfect, but that was a thing that only happened sometimes, so I'm not really sure if it corrected the issue or I just didn't encounter it at all.
This should have been the 1st Xbox launched instead of that crap..
Exactly! I wholeheartedly agree with you! MS messed up big time when they released the OG Xbox One. Im just glad MS learned from their mistakes. Or rather much in thanks to Phil Spencer the company is back on track.
Should have been a 800+ dollar console in 2013? Ha! I bet that would have gone over well. People bitching about a 500 dollar mid gen console would have LOVED to pay 800 bucks back in 2013... /s On the other hand tho... a performance gap that large in 2013 would have made OG Ps4 look pathetic. Maybe you have a point after all?
Yeah sorry, this thing would have been crazy expensive 4 years ago.
Am I missing something? Doesn't the game have to be updated to take advantage of the X? I ran Dying light and it still ran like Shit.
idk what you talking about i played dying light on base xbox one and it ran ok to me i think you're one of those guys that always finds something to complain about
Yep its one of those guys. Every person that has played base games without the enhancement patches have seen improvements to the games.
No, every Xbox game you pop into the X should see some improvement without any patch. It is how MS designed the console and it is amazing the improvements it has made to all of my games.
I thought they confirmed the XBOX ONE X doesnt have boost mode like the Pro does, i'm sorry but im still seeing the same frame drops I had on my OG xbox 1 and Xbox 1 S
@2pacalypsenow: If you recall correctly Sony championed the idea of "Boost Mode" after the PS4 Pro launched with no such feature for previous titles. That's because Sony didn't build the Pro with previous PS4 games in mind. Also why Boost Mode makes some titles unstable instead of better as the warning you get from Sony itself says is possible. https://support.us.playstat... Xbox One X was created with enhancements to not only Xbox One but also Xbox 360 titles in mind allowing such things to be done on the system level rather than solely from patches. http://www.eurogamer.net/ar...
Xbox One X doesn't have boost mode per say like the PS4, because MS says it is designed to improve every Xbox game, whether enhanced or not, and from all my games I have played it is true. Every game is enhanced by default.
I've played Dead rising 3, Dying light and Sunset Overdrive, and I'm not seeing these "Enhancements" games perform exactly the same. I"m sorry but I'm gonna believe MS telling me all games are improve when I don't see any of the improvements on games that doesn't specifically say "Xbox one X enhanced". Maybe there's a youtube video showing comparisons of non enhanced games performing better.
Runs fine for me on OG PS4
I don't know what you are talking about, Dying Light never had any problem running on the Xbox One. I played the crap out of that game and never noticed anything running poorly. Whatever it was it must have been minor if I never noticed it.
https://www.youtube.com/wat... Ignore the PS4 comparison, but the game drops to the lower 20's.
Just more added value with all that performance. Ms did this one right.
Now hopefully they start funding more games lol.
I am so happy with the console. Just awesome the improvements it has made to all my OG Xbox, 360, and X1 games.
So it took buying another console in order to play your games right, damn Microsoft is smart.
Um no, had the X not released I was fine playing my games on the X1S, but any perfirmance, visual improvements Sony and MS gives us console only gamers is appreciated which is why I bought the PS4 Pro, and loving the X right now, so all is good for me.
Does it run The Evil Within 1 better than the Pro on Boost mode.
This is a scathing indictment for just how bad Xbox One is.
Don't you get tired of this? Your entire comment history is either negative comments about X1 or arguing with people after making negative comments about X1. lol Go play some PS4 games or something, it'll cheer you up.
If it bothers you so much dont read what I say and go play your X1 games or enhanced 360 games I guess, it will cheer you up. See how that works?
It doesn't really bother me, I just can't help but notice a trend with your comments, being as how you're on every Xbox article I read. At least you picked a good avatar to go with your miserable life and insufferable personality. Seriously man, take some time away from this site, you'll probably be a happier person.
Nah your responses are all the happiness I could ever need, keep replying and keep trying to insult me with your pathetic childish comments it makes me laugh.
Called 3 best buys, 5 walmarts, 3 gamestops, and 3 target stores. Finally got one. Amazon doesn't mean shit Sony boys. High demand is 100 percent real.
Sure it is when each store only has five consoles. Lol. You think you'd ever see Sony launch with five consoles per store? Of those five...you got one...there were four before you three days after launch. They sell two a day...for how long? It doesn't seem as 100 percent real as you say.
