DirectX 12 is coming next year, but it probably won’t help Xbox One games run at 1080p

The truth is, the PS4 is handily outperforming the Xbox One in terms of horsepower and unit sales. If Microsoft wants to turn the tables, it needs to forget about trying to keep up graphically with the PS4, and focus on making big-name exclusives for the Xbox One. As we’ve mentioned before, one of the most reliable ways to spike console sales is with the launch of AAA titles.

This is pretty much the most important part of the article.

They should stop trying to compete with graphics and focus on good exclusives.

But the 15-18 year old demographic demands schoolyard controversy.

A fact which we knew before any of the last 6 topics about this were posted by trolls like you because MS never made any claim or insinuation DX12 would have any effect on resolution.

Not sure if TC does anything else with his life other than posting anything bad that has to do with the xbox and trolling all day.

Plus this same topic has been posted 17 times in the past two days, and TC even posted in those same topics. He just feels better if he makes more topics about it.

The controversy died quite some time ago, when people finally were able to admit that DX12 wasn't some magical solution to the Xbox One's graphical issues.

Microsoft has done the same, when Phil Spencer said almost the same exact thing a few weeks ago and at E3, when they finally started calling the cloud what it actually is: dedicated servers.

I'm hoping that those were their final steps towards letting go of the "we need to pretend there isn't a power difference"-thing and going all out on the exclusives and games part of things.
