Microsoft’s Exec Boasts About Xbox One X’s 4K Potential, Comments On Aaero Dev’s Statements

Mike Ybarra on Forza Motorsport 7, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds and the world’s most powerful console.

Posted By | On 03rd, Aug. 2017 Under News | Follow This Author @Pramath1605


The Xbox One X’s launch is rapidly approaching, and if fans are excited for Microsoft’s new powerful console, that’s nothing compared to how excited some people on the Microsoft team seem to be. Which makes sense, too- after all, they’ve worked for years towards this moment, and now it is close to finally happening.

Posting on Twitter, Xbox’s Mike Ybarra expressed enthusiasm over the upcoming launch of the system, pointing out that the world’s most powerful console is launching soon, and that the launch of a new system is always exciting. He played up the console’s ‘true 4K’ capabilities, stating that the Xbox One X will be the place to play the best versions of most games, and then dropped in a tease about some of those games.

One of those games was Forza Motorsport 7, which he says will ‘blow players away’ on Xbox One X, before then also teasing PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, which is due for an Xbox One release later this year, on the One X (as well as on the standard Xbox One). He also commented on Aaero’s developer’s recent comments by saying that one of the guiding principles in the creation of the Xbox One X had been ease for developers- and that the response from developers has bowled over the Xbox team so far.

As hardware, the Xbox One X is unmatched. It’s powerful, lightweight, quiet, and extremely developer friendly. It is exactly the kind of thing that made Xbox what it is to begin with. Hopefully, Microsoft will also back it up with some major games, to showcase the full range of what it can do.

      There’s nothing impressive about some exec repeating the same boring marketing I’ve seen for the last year.

    • SJ777

      Im just glad he speaks english.

    • Baraka

      lol

    • Xpower1spikeX

      Exactly my point yet somehow you’ll have something to be pissed off about Xbox. Also the usual thumbing yourself up. Sad.

  • Wei Feng

    “True 4K” term been used more and more now.

    So what happened to the uncompromised 4k experience message from E3?

    With more 3rd party games been fake 4k, the fans are stepping in and praising that checkerboardering sub 4k is now a fantastic “compromise”.

    • theduckofdeath

      Only people playing on PC with 4K displays know what 4K is even supposed to look like. Even then, frame rate and enabled settings are whole other issues.

      3rd party devs are not going to out of their way to hit 4K on any console for years, and it will be at 30 fps. Maybe a fighting game has a chance. Microsoft claims the XB1X was designed to get their own existing games to 4K at their native framerates. We will see how it turns out.

    • SJ777

      Clearly you havent seen the list of 4K titles coming to the X. I can assure you 4K is already here, and once you see videogames on a 4K HDR display you will understand what the fuss is about. Im not talking about a dinky 30in PC monitor mind you.
      Im not trying to advertise or anything but this budget priced 4K HDR tv is incredible for gaming and priced at a bargain if cost is an issue-

    • Aenea

      Those titles have a large number of them just doing sub-4k or checkerboard rendering, the stuff MS and Xbox fans have been snickering about with the PS4 Pro…

      It will still have the better looking games tho, that’s for sure, but it’s not what MS and the fans kept saying….

    • SJ777

      The PS4 Pro isnt going to perform on par with the X. We could argue all day but the 4Teraflop PS4 Pro isnt going to suddenly become the 6Teraflop monster that the X is.

    • Aenea

      And who in their right mind thinks that Pro games will look the exact same as on the One X? Not me!

      That’s not what I posted about and you know it….

    • greatnessIsaLIE

      They will have 4k exclusives so they will keep there word. Forza 7 is a good example. True 4k 60fps with 40 percent overhead. Look at a pc rig that can do that and you’ll understand it’s true power.
      The games will tell the story this holiday season.

    • Aenea

      I am merely referring to a list that is floating around where many games are marked as ‘4k’ which certainly aren’t going to be running in ‘native 4k’ and for which some it’s already a known fact, like Anthem and AC: Origins…

      They will look better on the One X, if not that would be silly and on the devs, the console is more powerful than the Pro, but it’s not native 4k for many games even tho MS and fans have boasted about that…

    • greatnessIsaLIE

      Actually origins is rumored to never scale down under 4k. If it does not for long.

    • Aenea

      But it uses checkerboard rendering which has been scoffed at by many people as being ‘faux k’ while now One X is doing the same…

    • greatnessIsaLIE

      Some will some wont. It really depends on how the game is developed.
      One example is the ps4 pro.
      It has several native 4k games. If the ps4 pro can do it then the Xbox should have no problem.

      If the developer thinks that the graphics will look better on a lower resolution then that’s what they are going to do.

      It would be east to force deva to make 4k games but that would control the production way too much. They have the freedom to do what they wish with the extra power.

    • Aenea

      Indeed, but many Xbox fans assume that games on that list marked as ‘4k’ will be native 4k which isn’t necessarily going to be the case….

    • Hans Wurst

      It’s not even half the a,punt of games the PS4 Pro has for 150 Dollars less. No budget price TV is great for HDR gaming. Stop spreading lies.

    • SJ777

      I would have to look up the number of 4K games the PS4 Pro has. Im not gullible enough to take the word of a random poster on the internet. The TCL P607 is in the top 5 best gaming tvs on the market at under $700. rtings.com is the most respected hdtv review site on the web. I posted a link btw.

    • theduckofdeath

      I will buy a 4K TV when XB1X comes out. Finally settled on the 2017 LG model (C7). Earlier sets from all manufacturers had too many issues; input latency, standard support, color gamut coverage, max nits.

    • SJ777

      Microsoft have said right from the start that it is up to developers to decide how to use the extra power of the X. Not sure what your point is.

    • Smart guy

      There is no point he’s just stupid.

    • Aenea

      Well, the PS4 Pro is also a “true 4k” machine! It just depends on what the devs decide to do with it….

    • SJ777

      The PS4 Pro doesnt even have a 4K Blu-ray player, sorry but no.

    • Aenea

      Ahh, yes, a console can only be a “true 4k” console when it has a 4k Bluray player huh? makes total sense!

    • greatnessIsaLIE

      Not with that amount of ram and memory bandwith.

    • Aenea

      Didn’t know there were tech specs out there that make a machine a “true 4k” console and not what it outputs, hmmmmmm

      Care to define a “true 4k” console?

    • greatnessIsaLIE

      A console that can run games in 4k.
      I don’t understand your question.

    • Aenea

      Oh, ok, then the PS4 Pro is a ‘true 4k’ console indeed since it can run games at native 4k….

    • Hans Wurst

      They still are trying to deceive people with their fake true 4K and uncompromised 4K nonsense.

    • SJ777

      The X hardware is going to outperform the PS4 Pro, this isnt debatable, its factual reality.

    • greatnessIsaLIE

      For a 7 is true 4k no dynamic scaling there. How is that lying. Future exclusives will be 4k. Sorry but we will see more 4k games on Xbox 1x than any other console.

    • SJ777

      The X is going to outperform the PS4 Pro, this isnt debatable.

    • XterminatorbotMK1

      “True 4K” and “Mix Reality”

      Microsoft making up their own definitions and terms to deceive people.

    • SJ777

      Kind of reminds you of ” It will be like being in the Matrix”, or someone claiming at E3 that a cgi Killzone trailer is gameplay footage. 🙂

    • greatnessIsaLIE

      You mean like 8.4tf?
      You mean like ps4k
      Yeah at least Microsoft cared enough to give you a console that doesn’t have a full markup on it.

    • greatnessIsaLIE

      They never said that 3rd party games would be 4k. You know that already. I don’t think you’re that stupid. Oh wait you’re a ps fan nevermind….go on.

      Why talk smack about the Xbox when it’s the best there is. If you play on ps or Nintendo you are only making fun of yourself because you play and defend inferior hardware.

      Have fun wishing the ps4 pro was actually the scorpio.

  • One The One

    Exactly.

  • Billy

    I think I have heard about to much of 4K, and yes 3rd party devs are hitting 1800p which beats PC UW4K that most PC games run at. But it is still to much, and not enough about VR. I know they said that AR or mixed reality is not coming to Xbox but VR is and that they are working on their own VR for Xbox but come on where is the news for that. Xbox also has an Xbox One X presentation for GamesCom but we have heard nothing of VR. So are they waiting or are they just lost, maybe their hopping we will forget. Xbox is flooding the news with 4K and 4K is Ok but not the end all be all of gaming, by that I mean we have not even had a console that runs 1080p with steady 60fps and that includes the Pro, which gets closer to that than the others. We talk about 4K but the truth is there are 3 different kinds of 4K that are used in main stream first the one for video UHD-1 3840 × 2160, then one use for gaming (PC games anyway) UW4K 3840 × 1600, last is the one used for video recording DCI 4K 4096 × 2160 any of the first 2 could be used and be considered as 4K because they used as 4K so running 1800p is still more than UW4K (that PC games use). I don’t understand peoples concern with running 1800p it means that a console is using more GPU power to hit that mark than what most PCs are using to hit UW4K. (not that PC don’t have more power than that) Maybe some console gamers don’t know that there are more than one kind of 4K or maybe they expect it to be the same res as 4K Blu-ray. Honestly I know that they expect “native 4K” to be UHD-1, 4K but the truth is just using the definition it could mean any of the 4K resolutions, but if you though FreeSync into the mix, the only FreeSync 4K screens out there are Monitors most of which are UW4K. So the only way to use the tech and 4K is to use a Monitors again most of which are UW4K so we can wait for FreeSync to hit 4K TVs or use a Monitor not that that is a bad thing. (just for some of us we like playing on a big TV or at least I do) So can Xbox hit 4K with 3rd Party games without checker-boarding (technically checker boarding is used to bring 1080p to like 4K res and would not work on 1800p without changing the base tech) yes if they went UW4K it would be easy, can they do it without any upscaling yes again if they used UW4K. Can they hit UHD-1 yes they can on 1st party games can 3rd party hit the same res?, yes if a game that was developed for current consoles can be adapted (but not developed as optimized) to Xbox One X can hit 1800p then games that are developed after developers got the Xbox One X then they could it the same mark in resolutions and fps. However any games that where dated to release this year that are 3rd Part it would of been hard for them to UHD-1 because they had already finished the game and where working on bugs so hitting 1800p is more of an achievement than what the average gamer thinks. Most gamers today are lost when it comes to how games are developed, I wished they would put a little effort into learning what it takes to make the games they complain about but play anyway.

    LOL Slimy Mikey’s performance review must be coming up.

    • SJ777

      You mad? Unlike a meatpuppet his PR is free, whats sad for you is his salary makes yours look like a starving youtuber begging for likes and subs. Wait, what is that idiots name on youtube that trolls Microsoft just to keep from being homeless? El President? El Prostitute? Something El, hes like a 40yr old homeless guy that pretends to be a diehard sony fanboy. lol Got charged for being like a child predator or something.

      Trolling: If you’re going into articles simply to shake things up by posting completely off topic comments or flame-baiting other readers who may find the content useful, prepare yourself for your posts to suddenly disappear. Instigating “console war” or “PC Master Race” conversations in the comments will also call the attention of moderators.

    • SJ777

      I did.

    • omarcominyo

      So you just preach the rules but don’t obey them then. Ok

    • SJ777

      I dont have any issues with following rules. Im testing something.

      Stop embarrassing yourself.

  • XterminatorbotMK1

    So Mike Ybarra is basically saying Xbone S is a worst place to play? And it appears Xbone executives are struggling to come up with their own marketing slogans so they’re just mimicing Sony’s.

    So basically this article is about a hypocritical Microsoft executive who continues to lie about Xbone X and mislead people about it to promote his own product on an open social app? Say it isn’t so.

    Pramath writes an article about it as if this is new or useful. And the article appears to be written like a sales p1tch. Slow news day Pramath or did you just feel like giving Mike Ybarra a bl0wj0b to help sell a struggling brand? You could probably have Mike Ybarra just write your articles for you.

    • xstalker

      @xterminatorbotmk1 yes thats exactly what he is saying it’s a new console
      so of course it will play much better then xbox one s…and the piss poor pro.

    • Hans Wurst

      I hope you don’t cry us a river when the Pro just like normal PS4 outsells X1X by at least 3:1.

    • Baraka

      How would we know when Sony doesn’t release the Pro’s sales?
      They just said it was “selling well”.

    • Aenea

      ((number of PS4s sold on November 10) – (number of PS4s sold currently) ) / 5 = number of Pro’s sold

      One in five sold is a Pro…

    • Mark

      I highly doubt the Pro will outsell the X1X, especially by 3:1. However it’ll be interesting to see what people buy no doubt

    • THE4point2TFLOPweakness

      We will be enjoying the best version of our games nobody will cry for that so TAKE that L

    • Luke Skywalker

      I’m curious as to what slogan you’re talking about because you can’t be referring to “the best place to play”, right?
      If yes then you’ll have to find where Sony used it before August 2014. If you can’t then I rather you just shut up with your idiocy.

    • THE4point2TFLOPweakness

      Tha was some spanking you gave tha Sony P*ny

    • PC Master

      How about you take your own advice instead.

  • omarcominyo

    I’m more interested in seeing how FH3(and then 4) looks and runs

    • Luke Skywalker

      I believe 4 will look photo realistic if they stick to 30fps

    • Hans Wurst

      I play it every day on my PC. It looks ok but not spectacular since the assets will be the same.

    • omarcominyo

      I play it on PC(4k/60p) and think it looks stunning personally but I’m interested to see how Xbox X matches up

  • Hans Wurst

    Gamingbolt and Thisgengaming surely must be on a contest who brings out the most trashy articles about the most unimportant indie developer statements ever…

  • Hans Wurst

    Except for you guys PS4 gamers do have games to play this year.

    • SJ777

      Ive been playing around 95% of the same games on my Xbox that PS4 gamers have/will be playing this year.

    • greatnessIsaLIE

      Except that no one plays them. Every ps4 exclusive this year was outsold the month it was released by a game that is also on xb1.

    • greatnessIsaLIE

      And before you comment back….yes hzd was outsold by ghost recon. That was the best seller for ps4 exclusives, but it was outsold by a game that is also on xb1.

  • THE4point2TFLOPweakness

    Make the Sony Poopnies be tha expectator of XBOXX POWERRRRRRRRRRRRRRR
