    That was a Sony dev talking about The Order 1886 (Ru Weerasuriya from Ready at Dawn Studios - SOURCE). Thankfully no one connected to Xbox has tried to make that argument (that I know of).

    The XB1X is more powerful than you think, it's capable of running simple games like Rocket League at 1080p/120fps.

    If the video card Gods didn't grant me a 1080 Ti I might have said frack it and bought a One X.

    There is no more interesting game only for one console only right now exept on Nintendo... Even on PS4.

    Time have changed (again) and people want to play the same game on PC, Console and smartphone.

    Why are you talking and spreading false info, stop talking about info you do not have any clue about.

    HDMI 2.0 is capable of 240hz on 1080P without problems.

    In order for you to achieve 120+ on your HDMI cable the GFX AND MONITOR needs to have HDMI 2.0 certification, THAT IS BOTH NOT JUST THE GFX.

    Monitors example the BenQ xl2450 has been out for 2 ½ years and back by then it WAS and still is able to achieve 240hz on HDMI 2.0 input/ouput, in fact I have 3 of those monitors as my setup and guess what? All run 240hz via HDMI.

    Understand the pixel clocks, and understand the hertz

    I give MS an A for effort here. But I do not see this working out. They can barley do 60 fps at 1080p let alone 4K.
    Maybe @ 720p or 900p. But certainly not at 1080p or 4K or even 1440p.

    Consoles will always be behind PC obviously, but there's no reason not to celebrate consoles getting better. A healthy console ecosystem has positive benefits for PC gaming.

    Everyone in this forum is bitching about consoles when they belong to almighty 1000-10000$ rig race. Consoles are for living peasants, why do they care about consoles having more spotlight and incoming features? Whether consoles are able to use them, it is not their call.

    Don't put words in my mouth. I never said anything of the sort. I knew that consoles were always going to behind PCs in technological specs and capabilities. The reason for owning a console is that some devs do port games to PCs very well or they do not at all and besides there are Console exclusives especially on PS4 and the Switch.

    There's no such thing as gamer race. There's PC master race, and the plebs.

    I own consoles, 100%, for their exclusives, and the xbox one s' 4k blu ray player.

    If exclusives did not exist on consoles, i would not own a console, unless it was cheaper to buy it then buy whatever the best media player is at the time.

    Console gaming plain and simple is a closed ecosystem, why anyone would praise that over PC gaming other then non-gamers who think they are gamers claiming "but its simpler", makes zero sense.

    People fail to realize that freesync being available on consoles and making its way into TVs too, means that game developers will actually have the feature actively in their minds. Up until now, neither freesync nor g-sync were considered by game devs. It was designed to "just work", but no game developer has actively targeted it. And I've seen game devs state "g-sync and freesync are not supported" in their communications (release notes, patch notes, etc.)

    This might change now and we might see games being actively optimized for VRR, like minimizing FPS stalls as much as possible (engine stalls produce severe stutter in VRR.)

    Don't forget that there's supposedly another Xbox on the way. They're basically getting these kind of features in early.

    MS obviously has future-proofing in-mind. State of Decay 2 has unlocked frame-rate for example.
