It's very much the Early Days for 4K video content (given bandwidth limitations of most home broadband of Broadcast TV) and even gaming TBH, however The X like the PS4 will supersample the image down to 1080P and/or offer more Graphical Bells and Whistles and improved framerates where Games support it.

Even Maxed Out on the PC you can feel and see the engine hitting it's limits, it was built as a 60/30FPS 1080P Dynamic Scaling Engine to get around the Original Xbone's limitations. Personally I feel 6 on the One is a better more content rich experience. Hopefully the next Horizon and Motorsports are built on a 4K Native Engine.

Amazon UK has the One X in stock right now. After reading the DF articles and impressions from my fellow gamers, I couldn't resist. I'll be joining the club on Sunday. Can't wait.

Playing through AC Origins and playing my GOTY edition of The Witcher 3 for the first time (once the patch drops) are going to be a great.

And the wife will no doubt enjoy the Diablo 3 improvements during her endless rift runs.

Fun times.

I’m happy to wait til the sales / it being free on access in 10 months
The campaign certainly does feel very basic and almost “bolted on” as developers knew people wanted some single player content. Fair play to them for at least trying though and for going with a “new” story and characters, however despite the power of the x the gameplay felt basic and dated, as if it was a game from a previous generation (what with getting the x I’ve had a few hours on halo 5 and Titanfall 2 same day as playing this and the differences are huge)
The multiplayer ? Well again it felt too basic. I liked the “spot dart” and how can use points for a hero but as a multiplayer game it did just feel like a generic game with a Star Wars skin.
Do think though by time price drops / ea access vault arrives the extra content may have given it more polish
Spent another couple of hours on Battlefront 2 multiplayer today and my verdict is don't pay full price for this experience. I'm glad I didn't.

It's definitely style over substance and you would be forgiven if you thought this wasn't made by the experienced DICE.

It all just feels a bit messy, clunky and chaotic. Progression is very slow and you're at the mercy of loot crates for a lot of things.

I played the Heroes mode today and we won, so got the Achievement and now never need to play that unbalanced, button mashing mess again.

I actually really enjoyed the first game, and got to Rank 50 on both the PS4 and Xbox One, then moved onto other games before the Hutt stuff came along.

This looks and sounds great, but without that, it wouldn't have a lot going for it.

The difference is instantly noticeable, even on a 1080p screen. I've got a Sony KDL-46W905, which is a gorgeous 1080 panel.

Battlefield 1 runs at its highest resolution and looks better and that hasn't even had an X Enhanced update. Halo 5, Titanfall 2 and Battlefront 2, all X Enhanced, all look fantastic.

This is without 4K and HDR.

My XBox S is relegated to the bedroom these days, I have a 4K TV in there but it doesn't have HDR.

Is HDR a massive part of the improvements?

Opinions

Only if the devs have utilised HDR in their game.

Even using the X on 'just' a 1080p TV, so no native 4K or HDR, and you can see the improvements over the X1.

The XBox One Thread Pt3 - discuss!

I really can’t believe the improvement , I’ve gone from a day one original Xbox one, and the difference is phenomenal , playing on a Panasonic plasma 1080p and it’s just incredible , getting a 4K set in the new year so should see more improvements

If I'm playing from one of the hard drives, silent. If a disc is in then noisy as hell.

Don't disc games play from the HDD too apart from the initial disc check at the start?

Mine's quiet most of the time and I have to put my ear right next to it to hear anything, same with my X1, but there is a low audible hum I can hear when playing Battlefront 2 multiplayer. I sit about six feet away from the TV and console and can just about hear it. It's no where near the sound levels of my PS4 or Xbox 360 though. Their noise is quite intrusive in comparison.

Yes me and many others at AV Forums, same for the S. They’ve basically borked black levels which are showing as grey at the moment.

Don’t know if it is just UHD or blu-rays too.

1 month Xbox Game pass is down to Ł1 on the dashboard/marketplace - well worth it!
