Well I know which version to wait for and for that console to buy it for. Good stuff.

That's the story so far. Shadow of War is a strong effort from Monolith with good performance, marred only by some low quality texture assets that look particularly poor blown up on a 4K screen. In turn, this means that PS4 Pro's 4K output may not have legs ahead of Xbox One X's launch. Despite its dynamic resolution concept working well, keeping image quality at around 1620p, the fact is PS4 Pro's in-game textures desperately needed an upgrade to suit its res boost. It leaves Xbox One X with a chance to take real advantage once it arrivesespecially bearing in mind it has the extra RAM to support higher quality 4K textures - and we can confirm that quality and resolution modes remain in the X code, along with the ability to run the game at native 4K or with dynamic resolution scaling in play.

Well Digital Foundry has spoken guys. For those refined gamers out there looking for proof from the Experts.

It's all about the options then and Monolith clearly feels it has more to offer in that regard for potential Xbox One X users. But for now at least, the PS4 Pro version is the best way to play on consoles. The 4K cinematics pack is a highly recommended download, and the game's quality setting at least upgrades draw distances to better suit a 4K experience. It goes way beyond what we get on a base PS4 in that sense, but the highly variable asset quality is a concern - if the full 4K texture pack from the PC version is available to X owners, it'll address the shortcomings of the Pro version and present a significantly improved look. And by extension, it may be the biggest gulf we've seen between Pro and X to date.
Nothing comes out as you plan it out to be.

I sure hope not...with an extra year of dev and a price tag $100-$150 higher than the Pro, this was to be expected...

The question for some now will be if the X1X can manage native 4k/60fps with no checkerboarding to justify that $500 price...

Yeah Digital Foundry said they would update the comparison as soon as the X comes out. Should be interesting.

That question is already being answered. Strange that people that troll newsnow for gaming articles would have missed it.

the original xbox one was 500 bucks so i think the X is ok at 500 with the included uhd player.

I don't believe in equality. I believe in equity.
