Microsoft’s Xbox One X 4K Focus Will Push Competitors To Follow Suit – Crytek

CryEngine developer also feels that the console is a "worthy hardware upgrade" over the Xbox One.

Do you own an Xbox One X? Do you believe in its power to bring 4K gaming on consoles to the masses? Maybe, maybe not but if NPD Group data (cited by Microsoft’s Aaron Greenberg) is anything to go by, the Xbox One X is doing pretty well in the United States. The obvious question now is whether it will help push the initiative for 4K or not.

GamingBolt posed this question to Crytek’s CryEngine product manager Collin Bishop, asking whether the Xbox One X will expedite 4K support especially since it launched just recently (compared to the PS4 Pro which has been out for more than a year now).

“Competition is always favored inside of any market. Considering the focus and push from Microsoft, it can only be assumed that their competitors will follow suit. The titles each console promotes are also quite similar in terms of performance requirements and the graphical fidelity. In the end the customers will drive the tech through the sales.”

As far as raw hardware prowess goes, Crytek also feels the Xbox One X to be a “worthy hardware upgrade” over the Xbox One. “The Xbox One X is certainly a worthy hardware upgrade. Its built-in 4k support allows us to achieve even more breathtaking visuals.  Those that do not have a 4k display available to them still benefit from supersampling and the additional CPU/RAM power allowing to process more objects in the world.”

With 4K TV prices falling, the Xbox One X presents a fairly interesting deal at $499. Of course now it’s up to Microsoft to produce the games to match it, something which the PS4 has had an advantage with for a while now. What are your thoughts on the same? Let us know below.
