Aaero Dev On Whether Devs Will Utilize Xbox One X’s Power Despite PS4 Having A Larger Install Base

Also comments on whether Xbox One X will help Microsoft to catch up with Sony.

Posted By | On 18th, Aug. 2017 Under News | Follow This Author @Pramath1605


The Xbox One X promises to be an extremely powerful console- it is the most powerful console ever made, and it definitely gives developers a lot of power to play with. But given that it represents a fraction of a fraction of the market – since most of the userbase is on the PS4, and most Xbox players will own a standard Xbox One – what are the odds developers make use of the extra power despite Sony’s PS4 install base?

This is the question we raised to Paul Norris of Mad Fellows Games, the developers of Aaero, and he believes that as long as utilization is being done for enhanced framerate and resolution, there is no reason to not tap into the Xbox One X’s resources. “I think if it’s a case of just setting the resolution to 4K, possibly upping texture resolution and letting it run at a better framerate there’s no reason for devs not to utilize the power if it’s there to use,” he said. “I think that’s the aim with Xbox One X as opposed to developing something completely bespoke for the system.”

Norris also chipped in on whether or not the One X will help Microsoft regain lost ground against Sony in sales- while he declined to give a definite answer one way or the other, he did say that it will be good overall for the market, and for gamers.

“It’s hard to say. I guess it may do in some regions of the world more than others. I think both platforms have a solid install base now and good support for and from developers. I don’t think there’s going to be any losers any time soon. I’d like to think there’s just going to be more options for gamers to choose the console that best suits their taste.”

The Xbox One X launches worldwide on November 7. Stay tuned for our full interview with Norris next week.

    PS4 Pro can only dream to reach the specs and power of Xbox One X.

      Xbox One X can only dream to have the games of PS4 Pro.

      They just don’t get it. You gotta talk real slow to splain it to em.

    • Dapsy

      Xbox one X does not need the games of the ps4 pro…

    • J.j. Barrington

      It needs games, though. Can’t imagine anybody making excuses for the lack of library the XB1 has right now.

    • Evil_Annie_2015

      It’s been 17 months and all Sony has released as AAA is HZD. What’s your excuse? 🙂

    • J.j. Barrington

      Hmm? AAA? Why that stipulation?

      Why deflect from the lack of games on Xbox overall?

    • Evil_Annie_2015

      Because AAAs reflect an actual investment from the Platform holders, and I don’t see anything on the PS side besides HZD. Even if you want to make a case for GTS, you will still end up with the same number of exclusive PS AAA titles for this year compared to Xbox.

      “Why deflect from the lack of games on Xbox overall?”

      I’m not deflecting from anything. Most multiplat AAAs and indies are shared among both platforms if that’s what you mean by games overall. Now, If you argument falls on Japanese games entirely then it’s a moot point because those games are handouts to Sony for the simple reason PS is the local brand while Xbox “doesn’t exist” there.

    • care package

      9 out of 10 games are multiplats. Top 20 games of 2016 were ALL multiplats. Need is a strong word. PC is a pretty strong gaming platform and guess what. All multiplats, and for what reason? Power. You know, what the ‘X will offer.

    • SJ777

      Do you mean the 1 exclusive game for over every 100 games on the market? Do you not realize that multiplats games make up over 99% of available games on the market? Typical lol.

      Hey its not all bad news…

    • J.j. Barrington

      And the vast majority of that 99% don’t do anything at retail. They’re games nobody keeps, games nobody remembers, and games nobody buys a console for.

    • SJ777

      If Im not mistaken Injustice 2 has outsold every Playstation exclusive combined this year in North America. Japanese anime titles and indie games dominate the sony exclusive line up. Lets not pretend those have mainstream appeal.

    • Triton

      Games like Driveclub, The Order 1886, Killzone…etc.

    • J.j. Barrington

      Those are titles people bought the PS4 for. Just like Fighter Within and Lococycle.

      Actually, not just like those. Far better than those.

    • Triton

      Lmao you people have low standards.
      I dont know anyone who ever said “OMG that point & click game The Order 1886 is so great I have to buy a PS4”.
      If a real Gran Turismo ever releases, THAT is a console seller.
      Instead there will be another half-assed GT.
      I’ve used to be a huge GT fan, but they suck now.
      I also used to play my NHL and Tekken on PS, but the online sucks and no one ever talks in the game lobbies or did send a friend request.
      Using a chat headset on PSN is…well its not needed, so I totally understand why they give away those cheap earplugs instead of a headset.

    • J.j. Barrington

      Your desperation is on full display, huh?

    • Triton

      Why would I be desperate?
      I only play games and use hardware which suits my personal needs of enterntainment best.
      A 3 hour cinematic experience doesnt, neither does any single player games because they are of low value to me.

      You just cant stand that I used to be a PS-player who went Xbox to play multiplats and a few exclusives. I have even worked for SCEE in the gaming industry, so go ahead and call me a fanboy or whatever it doesnt change anything.
      Im not loyal to any brand.

      But I bet you havent even had an Xbox and you are here spouting your imagenary facts about gaming.

    • J.j. Barrington

      If you weren’t desperate, why all the desperate-looking attempts at downplaying things you supposedly don’t care for?

      Sounds more like the age-old sour grapes: you can’t have those games, so they “suck” to you… even though odds are you haven’t even played them at someone else’s house, let alone own the console and games, themselves. For titles you care nothing about, you spend a lot of time downplaying them, trying to make them seem bad, rather than making them seem like games you don’t like.

      That’s called desperation.

    • Triton

      Lol…I comment because you guys have som kind of romantic feels about a company and you defend their every misstep with either lies or a deluded narrative.
      Someone needs to tell you how things in real life work.

    • J.j. Barrington

      Riiight. So you defend and deflect and deny because other people are defending every misstep for their companies?

      Which lies are being told here? I mean, besides The Order being point-and-click. Where are you acquainted with real life? I must have missed it while laughing at your horrible attempts at deflecting.

    • Triton

      Who is deflecting…you are the one here arguing about no diversity in games, in an article about a game utilizing more power on Xbox than on any other console.
      Seriously dude, does your logic disappear when you’re sitting behind your keyboard?

    • J.j. Barrington

      Pretty sure you’re arguing about that diversity, too. It’s strange: that 7777777 dude was downplaying games, not arguing power, but you upvoted his comment.

      Where is your logic?

    • Triton

      I find his comments fun to read.
      Ask Mr Xrat why he has bots upvoting his every comment instead.

    • J.j. Barrington

      Suuure. You fail to see the hypocrisy in your own words, and your excuse is that it’s fun to read someone’s comments?

      That’s pretty weak.

    • Triton

      I can upvote one of your comments if you want.
      There you go buddy.
      It only means nothing, wouldnt want you to feel left out.

    • J.j. Barrington

      Uh, okay.

    • Wei Feng

      Yet it’s still a 30fps checkerboarder

      Yet still developers confirmed that Xbox X is 2x faster than slow PS4 Pro.

      And how many games will be checkerboard on the X? You need to update all your different usernames…:)

    • argenys

      With 4k textures and assets instead of 1080p. But nice try

    • care package

      All first party games are 4k native. What game is checkerboarded gaysian?

    • Wei Feng

      Can’t keep count, every week more is added.

    • care package

      Great reply dude. Very insightful.

    • Wei Feng

      thank you, it was

    • PC Master

      Xbox One X can only dream of owning awesome party first developers, with awesome diversity of exclusive games that PS4/Sony does.

    • Evil_Annie_2015

      Japanese games look the same to me, cheap and with ugly graphics…:)

    • Luke Skywalker

      most of them seems to play the same too: hack this, slash that, repeat, run over there, hack this too and slash that too

    • PC Master

      Same could be about your precious call of duty, halo, and gears of wars. Shoot, kill the next waves of enemies, rinse, repeat.

    • Luke Skywalker

      I play multiplayer mostly, real people behind the characters, talking to real people through voice chat

    • J.j. Barrington

      Doesn’t change anything.

    • Luke Skywalker

      It changes a whole lot to me. And it’s a part of why I don’t really like single player type games. I guess you like sitting there playing all by your lonesome, right?

    • J.j. Barrington

      Usually, my girlfriend enjoys watching.

      That said, I DO enjoy playing by myself. I also like online sometimes, too. Frankly, I’d rather have the extra games than not. I’d rather not have my enjoyment of a game dependent upon other people who are also playing.

    • Luke Skywalker

      to each their own and I dont’ really care about your imaginary girlfriend watching either. to me it doesn’t makes sense having games I’m not going to play, that’s like buying food i’m not going to eat or buying a car i’m not going to drive….why to say “hey, look I have a lot of cars”? to me that’s stupid, but again to each their own. you like playing alone that’s great for you.
      for me I guess an example would be: going out to have fun, by yourself it’s ok but going out with friends is a whole lot of fun on a different level. you dig? so you go ahead enjoy your weebo games, i’m good.

    • J.j. Barrington

      “to each their own and I dont’ really care about your imaginary girlfriend watching either.”

      You’re pathetic, but you know that, right?

      “to me it doesn’t makes sense having games I’m not going to play”

      Why wouldn’t you play them? And if you were never gonna play, why buy them? It seems like you’d rather disparage games you never played than give a good game out of your comfort zone a chance.

      “so you go ahead enjoy your weebo games alone…..excuse me, I mean enjoy your weebo games with your imaginary girlfriend, i’m good.”

      You could at least spell that pathetically weak insult right: it’s “weeaboo.”

    • J.j. Barrington

      Sounds lie every western game, too.

    • Luke Skywalker

      If you want to believe that, I won’t stop you.

    • J.j. Barrington

      Hey, if you can believe a bunch of ignorant generalizations, why can’t I?

    • Luke Skywalker

      if you want to paint it as such go ahead. i’m not going to try and stop you from believing what you want to believe. at some point I will get around to making a compilation of many jrpg games. to me they’re mostly the same, to you that might be different and that’s cool, know what I mean?

      I believe there’s a reason multiplayer games generally do good on xbox and single player games generally do good on ps, because one are generally social people while the other likes to play alone with imaginary girlfriends, know what I mean?

    • J.j. Barrington

      Pretty sure YOU’RE the one “painting” something, not me.

      “most of them seems to play the same too: hack this, slash that, repeat, run over there, hack this too and slash that too”

      Yeah, that was your doing.

      “to me they’re mostly the same”

      Which is irrelevant, because these companies cater to more than just you. And catering to multiple groups is how you get the most sales. Know what I mean?

      “I believe there’s a reason multiplayer games generally do good on xbox and single player games generally do good on ps,”

      But Xbox fanboys like yourself love to point out that mutiplayer, multiplats like Call of Duty are typically the top sellers on PlayStation, too. That indicates that MORE than just single player experiences are popular on PlayStation. This is different from on Xbox, where multiplayer does well… and that’s it.

      “because one are generally social people while the other likes to play alone with imaginary girlfriends, know what I mean?”

      See the previous comment about the popularity of multiplayer on PlayStation for why you sound like a tool. See the facebook tied to this disqus account to see me and my imaginary girlfriend on a Ferris wheel while we wait for the eclipse in the Great Smoky Mountains tomorrow.

      Man, you sound desperate to downplay. Why is that? Your “beliefs” are so full of crap you can’t possibly believe them, yet you put them out for the whole internet- and the world- to see. Not exactly a smart move.

    • J.j. Barrington
    • PC Master

      Cool story.

    • PachterStation

      Not forgetting the 60 million user base.

    • Triton

      “Awesome diversity” lol…
      How many racing games have they released?
      How many popular multiplayer games do they have?

      How many FPS games have they done?
      How many strategy games do they have?
      All they do is 3rd person adventure games and those basicly consist of crate moving and climbing.

      Where do you see diversity? There is NO diversity and the sequel games are basicly carbon copies.

    • LifeOnMars
    • Triton

      Dont try to spin this, sales numbers are not relevant.
      How many times do you think someone even plays through that game once? Or plays it continuously for that matter.
      It’s extremely short lived.

    • J.j. Barrington

      Do you have evidence to support this?

      Pretty sure every dev would prefer nearly 9 million in sales, which is why sales definitely matter, as that would give them LOTS of options as far as what they wanted to do next.

      The diversity is most definitely there… which is preferred over the same three franchises yearly or nearly so.

      Nice try, though.

    • Triton

      Sales are not diversity. Once again…sliding away from the subject with a totally irrelevant topic.

    • J.j. Barrington

      So…. no evidence, then?

    • PC Master

      And what does Xbox have?

      Mainly first person shooters. Why do you think Sony’s first person lineup have been superior to microsofts since the PS2 era?

      You clearly haven’t played nor seen Sony’s lineup. Take one look at the games that were released in Japan. Adventure, Sims, JRPG, Simulator, Shooter and such.

      The only thing Microsoft has going for 2 generations is Gears of Wars, Halo, & Forza.

    • Triton

      What Xbox has is multiple of all of those games the PS4 does not have. Why do you try to spew out lies by claiming there is no diversity in the Xbox line-up?
      Have you even looked at it without your Sony goggles?

    • PachterStation

      But the PS4 tramples the Xbox One for sales. It’s all down to price and games over tech. An Xbox One X for £500 with a game, it’s yet another dumb decision by Microsoft, when they’re trying to get the Xbox One back on track.

    • argenys

      You do realize it’s on pace for the best selling Xbox console ever, right? Sony is just doing industry record numbers.

    • J.j. Barrington

      How long ago was it that there XB1 was going to be the best ever?

    • argenys

      what are you even talking about?

    • J.j. Barrington

      “it’s on pace for the best selling Xbox console ever”

      That quote hasn’t been certifiably true in years, since Microsoft stopped giving numbers. What we HAVE been able to piece together doesn’t show that to be the case anymore.

    • argenys

      It was recently mentioned again dude… Not sure why you’re trying so hard. Let people enjoy what they enjoy and you do the same. Be happy.

    • J.j. Barrington

      Where?

      And why would sales prevent you or anybody from enjoying your console?

  • J.j. Barrington

    Is this the same interview that’s already spawned two or three articles?

  • Psionicinversion

    its pretty easy to utilise the power without doing anything specific. whether they choose resolution, graphics and or framerate, the X1X isnt some hyper powerful system that can run 8k 240fps with 16k textures and it doesnt require any specific coding like fp16 on the ps4 pro to maximise performance.

    all a dev needs do is spend an hour tweaking settings and running through the games more demanding areas to see how the game holds up on framerate and job done

  • PachterStation

    Microsoft are flogging a dead horse with the Xbox One X. Last throw of the dice, but a £450 console is the worst possible start. The Xbox One S at £230 with a game is selling decent, but that’s as far as it’ll go for Xbox One now. Personally, I couldn’t care less about VR, 4K and the fact that the Xbox One X is more powerful than the PS4 Pro. Won’t be long until we see Xbox Two and PS5 (give it around 3 years), then Nintendo will hammer out an under powered Switch 2.

    • argenys

      Cool, that’s you’re opinion man. Don’t frame it as otherwise.

    • J.j. Barrington

      What was ever framed as something other than an opinion?

    • argenys

      No I thinks or I believes. Flogging a dead horse. Last throw of the dice. Pushing false narrative without a single shred of it seeming like an opinion until second half of statement…

    • J.j. Barrington

      Considering it all addresses things that haven’t come to pass yet, it can’t be seen as anything more than speculation. It’s predictive… hard to make that come across as factual.
