Xbox One X Is Going To Be ‘Badass’ Once Games Are Optimized For It, Says Crackdown 3 Developer

“The difference between Xbox One X and PS4 Pro is night and day.”

The Xbox One X is going to be the most powerful system ever made, but it does feel like Microsoft is playing it up a bit too much- a strategy that its development partners are also running away with. Take Sumo Digital, the folks working on the long awaited upcoming Crackdown 3, for instance.

Speaking to the Official Xbox Magazine (OXM), Sumo Digital’s Design Director Gareth Wilson said that the system eats ’15K props for breakfast’, and that it will be ‘badass’ once games are optimized for it. “We’ve got something like 15K simultaneous props moving around in our game. Now the Xbox One X just eats them for breakfast,” he said.

“You can just go and go and go with it. Once we start making games that are optimized for that platform, it’s going to be badass. I don’t mind saying that it’s significantly more powerful than the PlayStation 4 Pro, and we’ve worked with PS4 Pro. It’s way more powerful. It’s a night and day difference.”

At the very least, I do agree that it is far beyond what the PS4 Pro is capable of, and that if it is ever fully leveraged, the results will be stunning. The question is- will developers ever fully optimize for it? If the PS4 Pro or even the original Xbox are anything to go by, that doesn’t seem too likely…

    I actually think it’s very likely and part of Microsoft’s plan. As much as they talk about this being part of the XB1 family, I think all future XB consoles will be part of the same family. I really think MS is taking the PC route with consoles and eventually, X1X will be the target and there will be a new system out not being fully leveraged, just like this will be.

    Meanwhile, the original XB1 will still run those games but the quality will be very low level and most gamers will be compelled to upgrade then.

    The first clue was the blending of this gen and last gen with remasters which are still being released to this day and obviously to good enough success for the practice to continue. The 2nd clue was the XB Play Anywhere setup which MS is fully supporting and the 3rd step was backward compatibility of not only the X360 but now the OG XB as well. All of these practices speak of PC perks but for those who prefer a closed box system.

    Every system will bleed into the next, basically making an upgrade every 4 years or so palatable for some but also not absolutely necessary if ur not ready. And most of all, it keeps them from having to compete with Sony for overall market share since every system will play the same games until they actually can’t. With Sony dominating EU and JP, Xbox will have a hard time catching up let alone beating them on a worldwide scale. I actually think it’s a smart play for all those reasons and will be buying X1X on day one.

    • When the next console they release is announced, XB1X Scorpio will probably be the new baseline if they continue this tick-tock trend…

      Yeah, that sums up what I said.

      I agree. Other closed hardware follows the same suit like phones. You theoretically get an upgrade for a phone and your stuff just transfers over. For a home console I think this is a very smart way to go.
