Microsoft Confirms 3D and 4K Resolutions for Xbox One
Xbox One supports 3D and 4K Video Content
Microsoft spokesperson Larry Hryb (Major Nelson), officially confirmed that the next-generation Xbox console does support 3D and 4K resolution standards.
“Xbox One supports both 3D and 4K,” said Hryb during a live Q&A session with gamers via Yahoo.
4K is also known as 4K Ultra HD which is four-times the resolution of current ‘Full HD’ standards. 1920 x 1080 is currently considered ‘Full HD”. Meanwhile, 4K Ultra HD would be 3840 x 2160 which s a immense difference and the next level of High Definition TVs.
TVs that support 4K HD already exist out in the market, however; they’re extremely expensive and it will take a long time for 4K resolution to get adopted in new homes.
Sony’s PlayStation 4 also supports 4K resolution output for video but not games.
Major Nelson was a bit vague during his statement, but its safe to assume that the 4K resolution will be limited to video content only.
Let us know if you’re looking forward to watching your favorite movies or videos utilizing the 4K resolution TVs in the comments below.
