Microsoft continues to highlight the incredible capabilities of Xbox One X and how its hardware is specifically lined up for both power and functionality.
Speaking with The Guardian in a recent interview, corporate vice president Mike Ybarra stated that the upcoming console upgrade will be able to deliver several key features. This includes an amazing Dolby Atmos spatial audio, high-dynamic range, and 8 million pixels on the screen. Together, it spells a visual fidelity unlike any other console has been able to offer before.
He further added that the Xbox One X was designed to create immersion and Microsoft is fairly confident that players will lose track of time in the glorious graphics put out by the machine.
His comments were nodded by boss Phil Spencer, who mentioned that they recently met with Patrick Söderlund about Madden. The executive vice president of Electronic Arts exclaimed that the “gorgeous grass” and other aspects of the new installment can only look this good on the Xbox One X.
I was on the EA stage talking to Patrick Söderlund about Madden, and one of the things he commented on was how the grass looks, and how it moves. He said if you had somebody circle 10 things on the screen that are different about running on Xbox One X, nobody would ever pick up on that, but subconsciously, as visuals get more lifelike your brain notices when stuff like that isn’t quite right. 4K can be just about the physics, maybe even just the way the trees move.
The Xbox One X is on schedule to officially hit stores across the world later this year, with a Japanese release slated to take place sometime later. For the western audience, the console will become available from November 7 for $500. Pre-orders are currently open at all major outlets.
