    I managed to pick up Titanfall 2 Ultimate here for about 6-7 € but haven't had a chance to play it yet. Doom was awesome on my PC with a 1070. Well optimized game. Hopefully you will get to enjoy it in 4k with 60 fps.

    I’ve just started playing the TF2 campaign and it’s pretty awesome. You were right, the eye candy is top notch on the XBX. Just received my titan and having a blast with it. Thanks for the recommendation. The game is worth more than 6-7€.

    P.S
    I love how easy it is to jump in and out from BT. Haven’t played the first TF so it took me by suprise. Pretty cool stuff.

    ^^I know right, this is one of those games that you use to show off 4k, and i completed the story and it was fantastic, and some fantastic set pieces, and if i had known it was this good i would have gotten it long ago, but i a not grumbling over £5.25. lol

    Now onto Doom 4k, i am so glad i waited with all these games, i am loving the extra eye candy, and 4k patch wise i still have Quantium break, Mafia III, and Agent of Mayhem(which i might add is £10 for the complete edition on XB store at the moment), to play through, and if you love the Crackdown games then this is a nice little filler until the 3rd game appears.

    I'll say this. Because I own a decent PC and because MS seems to hate exclusive titles, I never thought once to purchase this system. That said, MS really threw everything into this and tried as hard as they could to give a true 4K machine and experience. As a PS4 Pro owner, I'm salty at the IQ differences, but at the same time, accept this as the amount of exclusives on Sony is where it's at.

    If MS can get some decent exclusives, they'd have a juggernaut right now. From ruining the current gen with the lowest denominator Xbox One to raising the bar with X. But as I say every time a new GPU hits and everyone goes apeshit, show me software and then I'll buy the hardware. They're supporting far more back log titles with new updates than Sony ever did. They're honestly doing everything right minus the exclusives. As someone wanting a justification for a purchase...I still can't make one here yet. Come on MS! Lol.

    I don't think they will step things up with the exclusives, at least not anytime soon as we would probably have heard about it by now.

    Exclusive games aren't that important to me unless there are a large amount every single year. Saying that, even with the tiny amount of exclusives Sony still have a clear advantage, but you would have to like every single Sony exclusive and even then they all seem to be SP games, so it's more likely i would borrow the console rather than buy it.

    I want the OneX as the older i get the more i just want a plug and play gaming experience, it's abit like when you get a well optimised but essentially 1:1 PC port of game in that the lack of customisation frustrates you, but your actually quite pleased as now you can't waste hour and hours tweaking stuff and you can just play the game.

    Well even more good news on back compat from as the next round of original xbox games will be announced on April 10th, i have my fingers crossed that Forza motorsport and Burnout 1 and 2, will be that list, and i live in hope Outrun might appear but i know there are licencing issues with the outruns games, but we live in hope. :)

    I enjoy most Sony exclusives. Just this generation alone, Infamous: Second Son, Ratchet and Clank, Uncharted 4, Horizon Dawn, Order 1886, and soon God of War. The only thing I see with MS is Gears of War and Sea of Thieves. Sony should take note on how to support the functionality though. Damn.

    This makes me send dirty looks toward Sony. Sure would be nice to have a few key PS3 games in 4K on my PS4 Pro. Too concerned pushing their streaming service I suppose. The irony. Sony for exclusives, XBOX for care and love of older titles, patched to make use of a system with the power to do so. Kudos to microsoft for finding a place to focus on that Sony can't compete. And a segment that also helps justify the purchase. I steered clear due to having a PC, but with this kind of support for old titles...it makes it seems a little more justifiable.

    ^^Yeap, I am loving 4k on this system and it has just ruined me now for anything less, and yes i have a GTX1080 before somebody wonders why i chose not to do my 4k gaming that, but it simply became too much of a pain to get the PC to connect to the 55in 4k tv which is in another room, and then having to dig out wireless mouse/KB, then of course i would be dropping down to a 27in monitor rather than a 55in TV, but more importantly i would be sitting on a old PC chair rather than a nice comfy laid back couch or chair, so it was a no brainer for me. :)

    But the XBX has only made me want 4k HDR stuff, so i am waiting to grab a pro at some point when i can get it for £299 or under, loving these 4k machines, so much power and all sitting under my TV, and i am even looking at the PSVR even though i have a Rift as i am moving towards a more hassle free VR setup with more access to everybody else say around the TV, the one thing my PC can't really do.

    Yeah sony really needs to get its act together with updating its games and making games like gran turismo that landed on ps3 4k also. If they did they would be putting a huge hurting on microsoft but they refuse to which i guess they figure the new games will push the limits of the system to where people will go for them and away from classics like gran turismo series. Either way its nice to see both systems finally touching 4k resolutions. I believe the next systems will push 4k/60fps in alot of their games. Why cause those systems are still 2 years down the pipeline and we know how how devs are pushing games into 4k on pc now with just 1070-1080's. So yeah good things are about to really happen in couple years for consoles. I can't wait to see how these two brutes go at it again for supreme console systems.

    We have the regular xbox 1 not even s model and we have connected on a 4k LG 55 inch I do notice slowdowns somerimes ( grapicly intense scenes) but to my understanding its 1080p unless u have x model so I will pick one up soon i hope.

    Big Diffrence between the old 360 and this I must say, its on the way to catch up to pc quality (opinion) . I played Metro 2033 redux,Fallot 4,Borderlands 2,It looks just as good as our pc version running a Gtx 980 @ 1080p. Well real close at least.

    8 Jaguar cores it has right? Gpu on the x model is real close to a Gtx 960 with more memory and much higher bandwidth? Or was it a 980? I dont know?

    X model is great on a 4k hdr tv, i also have a 55in one and i love it, i don't know what MS are doing but i hope they continue, MS having to actually work to keep gamers on the Xbox due to the ps4 killing them in hardware sales is the best thing ever, my bang for buck has never been this high on a console, cracking stuff, i am one (pun intended) happy gamer.:D

    Got xbox one x as a gift recently. Damn this thing is impressive. Been playing new tomb raider, halo 5 with 4k patch and red dead redemption 2. 4K is legit on this thing. My PS4 Pro is dead to me! Lol

    ^^^Funny thing is since i moved my pro onto a 1080p tv i am actually enjoying it, no more sounding like a bloody jet, and i swore i would not purchase anything digitally on the ps4 due to Sony not supporting bc, but i just bought Dirt rally vr bundle for 12 quid to enjoy in vr, i have it on steam but it's just too much hassle and my pc chair is not as comfy as my recliner. Lol

    But yeah its cracking bang for buck, you need to try gamepass, i am sure you get a free trail, get FH4 and The state of decay 2.......cracking games.

    I actually just got game pass last month on PC when Forza 4 supported it. So yeah, I def. have a lot of stuff to run through. It's a great service. Lots to offer! Also really cool a good chunk of them are xbox one x enhanced.
