If Sony have plans for 4k gaming, can Microsoft even compete?

I mean, Microsoft have only managed to get a single game at 1080p so far on the xbox one, and even that has visual aspects of the game that look really horrendous (the cardboardcutout crowds in forza)

if devs are struggling to reach 900p on multiplats (more often than not only able to manage 720p)

does that mean the xbox one will never have games in 4k?

When the Xbox 360 released I didnt know anyone with a HDTV. 3 years later HD was the standard.

Times change very quickly, I personally don't see how the Xbox One could even possibly keep up with the rise of 4k.

But by then we will talk the next gen and people will have already bought the system, the first couple years matter and the last few are just people replacing or buying the systems cheap. To far out imo, those tvs are to much these next few years.

when they get to 1080p then they should start looking into 4k. big mistake to take a huge leap like that if they cant perfect 1080p still

That's why you're a kid on a message board and not making business decisions.

If you think the PS4 can do 4K, you're gonna have a bad time. Especially since it's literally only capable of 4k in video playback. (Like XB1)

Would you say Microsoft is already working on a next gen console right now? Reason I say this is the ps4 was in development as early as 2008. The ps3 had a tough start. With the Xbox one in the state it is, would you say Microsoft are already planning their next machine.

Its a big "IF" though.
