Do you have any sauces.... I'm doing this for research purposes.

So ok actual 4K and 60fps this time maybe? Also for all games.

And maybe 120fps at 1080p if possible. There are many 4k TV which support 120Hz at 1080p.

anaconda is a virtual environment that is quiet popular within the coding/AI area. Why would a software company Microsoft choose this name is really puzzling.

Yeah maybe in some games like fps I guess. Would double check if it's actual 120Hz and not some interpolation.

Why are people pissed at names? Those are for development. Kinect was called Project Natal for Christ's sake. 

Yeah - I wouldn't even have a problem with it if they kept the Dev names - despite Nicki Minaj, Anaconda isn't a terrible product name.

 

Would people prefer "XBox 4" and "XBox 4.5" instead?

 

Anyway, looks good. I was originally going to upgrade from one One S to a One X, but I don't even have a 4K TV yet, so I may just wait for the new high end One X successor to come out.


Also, RIP Canadian pricing. The One X replacement will probably be $700-$800 CAD.

 

The One X is currently $600 regular price in Canada.

I mean, I still don't know why they never adopted the 'XBOX 720' naming scheme, the 360 was such a smash.

I think here in Aus it will be a similar situation...

I don't know - I think maybe they thought that continuing the "Degrees" theme would sound stupid (or confuse stupid people that can't do math).

Sounds about par for the course.

They must think their core audience is really stupid because this generation they went back to One ?

They went from xbox "the first one" to 360 to 1 to 1 with suffixes. Tbh anything could be the next name, im hoping they go in the 360 direction but go with 69

@AluminiumTech the xbox one x already runs at 4k60fps

 

i think they're going to focus more on higher graphics quality, such as high graphics for the premium and medium graphics for the lower spec, but we'll see

To be fair, some of the 4K titles are rendered at a lower resolution and upscaled to 4K, though there are some that are native 4K @ 60 Hz.

Agreed. Personally I hope they focus on getting all games running at 1080/60 on the lower console and 4K/60 on the higher console. Once they can meet those requirements, then let's push the consoles to as high graphics as we can.

I mean, granted, current gen Xbox One and PS4 don't handle digital downloads particularly well but also no one uses optical media for PC gaming anymore. I'd argue if it weren't for Steam and digital downloads, PC gaming would be no where near as popular as it is today. As long as prices for the digital store are reasonable and there is someway to play older backwards compatible titles, I'm fine with it.

Total bullshit! I refuse to download a program if it exists on physical media. I absolutely hate this trend of forcing digital download down our throats for everything from software to movies and TV shows. There is nothing good about it, the quality is inferior for movies and TV shows, and it only takes away control form the consumer. You're at the mercy of whatever corporation "sells" you their product digitally; they can take it down anytime they want and you're screwed. That game you paid $60 for? Well Microsoft decided to remove it from their online store meaning you can't use it anymore and you're out that 60 bucks. Why the hell should I pay full retail price for something that I will not actually own?

@Locutus494 I would also add that having the gaming console as a media centre as well is beneficial.

 

I think the next gen Xbox models should both include a 4K blu-ray drive. Sure, not everyone will use it - but it also doesn't cost much to include.

 

That also gives the devs the benefit of being able to use 4K Blu-Rays (Or BD-XL's, even though they're slightly different formatting wise) to store the games on. This will allow larger game file sizes, which is an inevitable trend anyway.

 

Personally, I prefer digital downloads when it comes to games, because it's vastly more convenient to manage - but that's a choice I've made. I would be displeased with having the choice taken away, even if I personally wouldn't buy them anyway.

 

do buy physical media for TV/Movies - I buy Blu-Rays for anything worth owning, and don't own a single digital movie because they're extremely restrictive with the DRM on digital movies.

 

Seriously Apple, give me two things:

1. Ability to play iTunes purchased movies from my Plex Server on any device (including non-Apple devices)

2. Optional Blu-Ray quality download (I'd rather download a 25GB movie file and down convert it as needed)

 

I do buy some music digitally, but Apple has excellent DRM free music selections (though - again, ability to download ALAC/Lossless would be really great, Apple).

For PC Gaming specifically...I'd say you're in the minority. I get owning Blu-Rays and DVDs, I don't like using streaming services that are constantly removing and adding titles, I don't like the inconsistency there. And I understand the argument for 'not really owning digital content' but for PC games specifically I don't see that being an issue. Perhaps on console you're right, could be an issue at some stage but to be honest, it's something I'll personally have to wait and see. I haven't seen many cases where titles have been ripped from digital stores. It is a valid concern but I'd prefer the convenience of digital downloads over the potential benefits of physical media. I'm inline with @dalekphalm line of thinking, although I don't buy many TV Shows or Movies to begin with, I just record my favorite programs through the DVR, old school.

 

EDIT: Now that I think about it, the App Store/Google Play is a great example of what you're talking about. Apps seem to be ripped from those stores fairly often and it is frustrating.

I'm not sure about that, on the App Store you can find some through your purchased but then you have the issue that some apps aren't supported on modern hardware or modern versions of iOS...

In terms of Digital stores that I've used, including both XBox Store and Steam, even if they delist a game, you still own it and can redownload at any time.

I remember reading an article from some higher up at Xbox that they were interested in cloud gaming and supposedly working on their own type of service. I wonder if there is any relation here?
