White Noise 2 will also get an Xbox One X enhancement patch soon.
We are now long past the point of diminishing returns, as far as visual fidelity goes- while games can and still do look better- and the Xbox One X is a great example of just how beautiful games can look beyond what they otherwise currently do- the jaw dropping generation leaps, such as the N64, Dreamcast, PS2, or Xbox 360 are now long in the past.
But, that doesn’t mean there’s no room for them, either- indeed, the Xbox One X makes existing games look appreciably better. Better enough to justify the existence of the $500 box? According to Alejandro González of Milkstone Studios, the folks behind White Noise 2, yes. It is more powerful than the PS4 Pro by enough of an amount that the additional cost is warranted for people interested in high end visuals.
“As you say, the Xbox One X is the most powerful of both [consoles], enough to justify the difference in price if you seek for smooth 60fps gameplay or have a 4K TV,” he said.
He also confirmed that White Noise 2, while currently not Xbox One X enhanced, will soon get an update to support the console- and he suggested that it might run at native 4K on the system, too.” For now the game doesn’t make advantage of Xbox One X performance, but we plan on adding it with an update. I’m sure the console should be able to run the game at those rates on 4K, it’s very powerful,” he said.
It’s good to see that developers are taking advantage of the new machine- and if enough of them demonstrate that they are serious about it, then customers will naturally follow over time, too. Now if only Microsoft could do something about that prohibitively high $500 price…
