I love the music in this trailer. I've been trying to find out the composer since this came out with no luck.

I wish Microsoft would have waitied until next Gen to improve their hardware, and instead concentrated on growing their 1st party Dev teams to get more high-end software out... Like how Sony did with the PS3

It was Sony's software that turned around the PS3 blunder, & the same could of happened for the Xbox... Microsoft should have learned from history.

Look at the Switch... Power is not why it's games are good

Correct. Some kind of 4k/60fps solution, no HDR though.
Better than nothing but I'm a bit disappointed.
That other machine doesn't have enough HDR content..I don't want the same with the more powerful X.

I forget the specifics of it but it wasn't that they couldn't have put in a generic HDR implementation; it's that adding HDR would've messed up a lot of the color specific schemes/details/teamcolor cues on the multiplayer and it would've been too much to go in an retune all of that. Something along those lines.

That one is awesome too, I play along to this one on Rocksmith 2014 w/ custom modded tracks on PC.

I meant that synth heavy epic techno-type song in the other clip.

The Naughty Dog effect. Outside of that the rest wasn't really all that great IMO. That's waaay Off-topic though, but MS releasing a console doesn't really have any negative effects to the software they release. If anything it'll push their dev's to strive for better games.

I just don't see better hardware fixing Microsoft's software issues... Sony offered variety, and even if they are not as good as Naughty Dog's offerings, a good amount of variety shows gamers that they are trying

That is what Microsoft needs... Effort, and variety
Eh, whatever the case, wrong thread for PlayStation talk, there's a section for it and the first party studios has zero correlation to the hardware discussed here. Feel free to make a different thread on that.

The Xbox update that lets you download 4k updates is available for those of us not in the preview program.

Yeah, it would have been awesome. Apparently the cold scheme is more Intrinsic to the game than other games. I got the feeling they'd have to completely retune everything. Must be too much effort for such an old game. Should still be great, though.

Now that i upgraded to the Pro i'm wanting the X even more to complete the 4K entertainment. But i still need a 4K TV anyway, lol. Going to get a Switch first though. Took me a year to bite on the Pro so maybe this time next year i'll take the plunge on the X. We'll see what happens.

Ok, consider yourself warned. This is the kind of thing you need to steer clear of. Coming into the Xbox thread and talking about how Sony is better.

Wrong. Bzzzt.

I'm thread banning you, too, for a couple weeks. Trolling after being warned? Not smart.

Btw, for anyone who doesn't know, this is Puppet, aka Mikewarrior, aka Gaming Prophet.

Got to say, you are pretty lenient. Planview would have just banned his new user account permanently.

One thing's for sure. No matter how many times these perma-banned guys get banished, they always come back.

I wonder how many people have jumped ship from 1 console to another because of a post from someone on a videogame forum saying the other console was better because... reasons?

No joke.the light contest in BB would really benefit from HDR implementation. The IW boost would be welcome as well...

Bummed that Shadow of War still has the low res textures on the walls, was hoping that the One X version would get upgraded textures with it's extra memory, maybe it still will since the console hasn't released yet and they could still be working on the One X version. SoW, AC Origins and Ori are the only games I plan on buying on the console this year, sadly Ori isn't listed as getting the upgrade treatment and I don't know why, the PC version runs in 4K so it shouldn't be too hard to upgrade it right? AC origins sounds really promising aside from the occasional low res texture but nothing is perfect. I couldn't care less about Forza or Gears so those do nothing for me and I already played TR and was disappointed in the game, it already looks very good on the Pro but it's just not as good as the previous game. Really looking forward to seeing how RDR2 looks on the One X as well as seeing if the witcher 3 gets any further upgrades beyond what the Pro did.
