Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy runs at native 4K on Xbox One X
Crash Bandicoot lands on Xbox One X in glorious 4K.
Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy finally launched on Xbox One a few days ago. The game is available for $39.99 and comes with Xbox One X enhancements. The title was originally announced as a PlayStation 4 exclusive many months ago, and gamers were wondering what advantages Microsoft's new console brought to the table.
Luckily, Digital Foundry provided the answer today. According to the outlet, Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy runs at native 4K resolution on Xbox One X but only 1440p on PlayStation 4 Pro. It's by far the best console version out there. It's great to see the developer push the visuals even further on Microsoft's machine due to its 1.8 teraflops advantage over the competition. While we would've liked to see a 1080p 60 FPS toggle, the native presentation looks crisp on a 4K display.
For those unfamiliar with the collection, Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy includes the original Crash Bandicoot, Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back, and Crash Bandicoot Warped. All three of them are regarded as some of the best platformers out there.
Dr. Neo Cortex has a plan to take over the world, and he wants to create genetically engineered animals to do his bidding. To create his minions, Cortex kidnaps as many animals as he can. Unfortunately, Crash Bandicoot's girlfriend just happens to be one of his victims. Players take control of Crash as he runs, jumps and spins through thirty levels of intense action on three different Australian islands. Only you can help Crash save the animals, his girlfriend, and foil Dr. Cortex's plan.
Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back
The evil Dr. Neo Cortex is back but this time he's asking for help from his arch nemesis Crash Bandicoot. Is this just a conniving plan to lure Crash into Cortex's next dastardly experiment? Can Crash win again or will he join Cortex's mindless zoo? Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back features larger environments, new animations, and a whole lot of colorful characters. One of the biggest additions in this game were the jet packs that let Crash navigate zero-gravity levels.
Crash Bandicoot Warped
Unlike the previous games, Crash Bandicoot Warped is a time-traveling adventure. It features new gameplay like scuba diving, riding a motorcycle, and even going airborne in a plane. You can also play as fan-favorite character Coco! You can gallop along the Great Wall of China on a tiger or go extreme on a ski. Players must prove their skills with new abilities like the "Body Slam", "Super Slide", and "Death-Tornado Spin". Lastly, all new enemies include bosses like Dingodile and of course, the return of some favorites like Tiny.

So your video is ps4?
The video is by Digital Foundry, not Windows Central
The video includes all versions.
But why not in 60 fps?
A Activision choice.
Better than 1440P on the PS4 Pro.....
From what Digital Foundry reported, the Xbox One X (and PS4 Pro) should be able to run at 60fps. I'm sure the Xbox One X could do native 4K 60fps if it were available.
