You’ve seen the beautiful videos on this game being played on the Xbox one X. Kudos to Microsoft for taking a page out of Sony’s playbook. They have tried to formulate this into a exclusive game that is a third party game by showing it off on their system before others. What most thought was that this game was showing off amazing visuals due to the Xbox one X. This is how it was sold. It was Microsoft’s way of showing that they have the best console to play this game on. But as more and more info comes out on this, what we find is that that game will look just like this on the PS4 Pro. Now that’s a problem for me if this is true. The Xbox one X has 12gb of memory that can easily be used for 4k textures over what the PS4 pro can do. So please explain to me how in the world this game is exactly the same on the both platforms if one platform has at least 40% more power to use for graphics.
Now, there is only two reasons for this. One of the obvious ones is that the company is looking for parity and not really being fair to the more powerful console. The second reason is that regardless of the power, the extra power of the Xbox one X still isn’t enough to make a true difference over a PS4 Pro. So then, if this is the case, what the Xbox one X is and represents is Microsoft’s way at being equal in graphics with the Pro. Nobody that has a Pro would need to go out and buy the Xbox One X at this rate if things don’t prove to be wrong. But if you are a fan of Xbox then you definitely want to buy the X because it will be your only way to match The PS4 Pro’s graphics. The biggest issue is that if they are really that close in graphics what’s the point in buying the X for $100 more when the Pro is there with better exclusives? Spider-Man, Ace combat, Grand turismo, Uncharted, Detroit, Last of us 2, MLB , and God of War are all on deck for this year and next. So Microsoft better have some really good news tomorrow.
Come on Microsoft …we need a follow through here at this stage. The Xbox one X is suppose to have the best versions of the all games. Let’s get this done!
