Original Xbox could do 1080p ...

For it's time the original Xbox was a BEAST... HD SOUL CALIBUR 2 in 2003... seriously that's why the Xbone is a letdown... :(

Xbox One can do 1080p as well.

1080i, actually. 1080p wasn't an option since it only used component cables, and I doubt it had the hardware to send a 1080p signal over it (not to mention hardly any TVs accept 1080p through component anyway). Functionally however, 1080i at 60hz is the same amount of data as 1080p at 30hz/30FPS.

I don't see how any of that relates to the Xbox One though. If anything wouldn't that just make its eventual 4K support seem all the more reasonable?

do you have any idea how many levels of dumb your topic is?

Which games did the original Xbox do in 1080p? Because I can only name a few 720p games, such as some sports games and Soul Calibur 2. I was certain Splinter Cell: CT and Ninja Gaiden Black also supported it, but after searching a bit it seems they don't.

I got 1080p on a CRT monitor through the Xbox VGA adapter but the only game I remember playing at that resolution was Enter the Matrix.

If they want console fidelity from 2008, sure 4k/30 is reasonable.

Its not at all reasonable to expect 4K games on either new consoles hardware... Don't kid youself

Wrong. The original xbox was crap. Ps2 , gameqube and dreamcast were better imo. The xbox one is excellent though. I'm glad I got it.

I had the ps2 and Xbox, but I preferred the Xbox. The multiplats just had to be owned on the Xbox, they were that superior. Play SW battlefront 2 on Xbox then try it on ps2... Lol. Worse viewing distance and longer load times (ps2). And san Andreas was also better on Xbox.

Xbox also had the built in hard drive, the ps2 8mb cards were a pain in the hole.

And yeah, I had scII on Xbox, that really does look good for its age. My favorite soul calibur game, even fighter maybe. I still play it on my 360 from time to time, but its laggy on the library level.
