Homefront: The Revolution comes in at 900p on Xbox One and Sonic Forces comes in at 720p on the console. The presentation is rather blurry, especially when it comes to Sonic's latest adventure. Luckily, both games look pretty good on the Xbox One X because the developers managed to pump up the resolutions to 1800p on both titles.
In a press release, Deep Silver detailed the changes coming to Homefront: The Revolution for Xbox One X owners today. They said that the game is rendered in 3200 by 1800 pixels, which is a four times increase over the standard Xbox One version. This resolution will provide superior image quality on 4K displays and a crisper, super-sampled image on 1080p ones. For comparison purposes, the PlayStation 4 Pro version runs at 1440p. This is great news for gamers who wish to revisit the title after all this time.
Sonic Forces is another story though. The game runs between 1800p and 1080p depending on the level. Digital Foundry recently conducted a thorough comparison between the Xbox One X and PlayStation 4 Pro versions. While the PlayStation 4 Pro version of Sonic Forces runs at 1080p at all times, the Xbox One X version bumps the resolution up to 1800p for certain levels. While this isn't an ideal solution, it still offers superior image quality during those instances.
It's great to see that these popular games are getting patches for the Xbox One X. The Xbox One is the most powerful console ever made. The device features 6 TFLOPS of processing power and 12 GB of GDDR5 RAM. In addition to that, the Xbox One X also contains a 4K Blu-ray player and offers a faster hard drive. The device is now available at retailers worldwide.
