Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus achieves native 4K resolution on Xbox One X

Digital Foundry conducted an analysis in which they uncovered that it ran at 810p 60 FPS on the system. This resulted in a blurry image which was rather jarring to experience. Considering that Wolfenstein: The New Order ran at 1080p 60 FPS on Xbox One, this felt like a significant downgrade. However, now that the Xbox One X is out, it seems that those who upgraded to Microsoft's newest console are in for a treat. Unlike the PlayStation 4 Pro version which achieves up to 1440p resolution, the Xbox One X version goes up to native 4K. Both versions feature dynamic resolution in order to maintain 60 FPS as closely as possible.

Despite the drops in resolution on Xbox One X, it stays above what players see on the PlayStation 4 Pro. This results in a sharper image throughout the game. There's also better texture filtering on Microsoft's console which results in players seeing more details during certain scenes. This is great news for Xbox One X owners and even better news for those who originally played the muddy version on Xbox One.

Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus is the sequel to the critically-acclaimed Wolfenstein: The New Order. The game is currently available on Xbox One, Windows PC, and PlayStation 4. This time around you fight the Nazis in iconic American locations, equip an arsenal of insane guns, and unleash new abilities to blast your way through legions of Nazi soldiers. You have to trigger the second American Revolution.

  • Don't tell this information to SONY fanboys.. 🤣😂
  • It's just science and numbers and math. Weakest system Xbox one has a low resolution. Strong system ps4 pro has above 1080p. Strongest system scorpio achieves. Nothing surprising here really
  • I'm sure they would be shocked. 
    Who would have thought a more expensive console with better specs would run the version of a game better??? I guess they'll just have to settle to play Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds at their low resolution and framerate. XB1x owners can run it at an amazing 0FPS & 0p.
  • Is you the one asking for benchmark numbers around articles? I'm playing Wolf, AC-O and Lucky's Tale (continue on Surface Pro during coffee break, sometimes Cuphead). I've game the original HZD (half way, unbeaten like I always do), I don't care about the DLC.
    How many ps4 owner bought it? Is it such a big deal that every ps4+xb1 owner MUST play? What if you wanna play GoW / Halo / Forza, Sea of Thieves with bros & friends? Ashen? Cuphead? State of Decay 2? Crackdown 3? It goes both way tho. What if you wanna play the best of Wolf, Anthem? And how about the DLC on xb1x2? I have not tried Blood&Wine but it looks nice and I might like to pick it up one day I run outta new games. Can you play it on ps5? Or do you have to buy another remake and start fresh?
  • "Is you the one asking for benchmark numbers around articles?"
    Yes. Do you have them?
    "I'm playing Wolf, AC-O and Lucky's Tale (continue on Surface Pro during coffee break, sometimes Cuphead).

    Good for you. I guess...
    "How many ps4 owner bought it? Is it such a big deal that every ps4+xb1 owner MUST play?"
    No idea. I don't know. I don't get your point.
    "What if you wanna play GoW / Halo / Forza, Sea of Thieves with bros & friends? Ashen? Cuphead? State of Decay 2? Crackdown 3? It goes both way tho."
    I'm currently playing Cuphead. I'm almost done. I have a PC. I can play most (if not all) of those on a PC.
    "What if you wanna play the best of Wolf, Anthem? And how about the DLC on xb1x2? I have not tried Blood&Wine but it looks nice and I might like to pick it up one day I run outta new games. Can you play it on ps5? Or do you have to buy another remake and start fresh?"
    "Best of"? What do you mean? The best resolution? Best controller? This is subjective there is no such thing as "the best". But if you want to talk about the best resolution/performance I could upgrade my GPU to have the "better performance". But you see, specs and performance have not all of a sudden become my priority. And finally I don't get your XB1x 2 or PS5 stuff. I don't have a time machine...

    You can still answer these even if you don't have a time machine.
    Q1: Do you think Sony has the ability to cook up something like UWP and ps1/2/3 VM and let it run on ps4/5/6/7?
    Q2: Will Sony offer cloud sync free with unlimited data and cross platform capability?
    Q3: Can Sony deliver PC (win10), console (PSes), portable device (win10arm) combo?
    Q4: What's the requirement to have a feature like GamePass on consoles?
    Q5: Does / Will GamePass (oxOg, xb360, xb1 and future games will have to run on xb1 and every newer xboxes) have a competition?
  • "No and you've kinda got schooled by many.."
    LOL What a silly comment.
    How can I be schooled by something I never saw and probably doesn't even exists. HAHA "google out non-digital 3.60m world wide, compare to other top sellers... majority didn't buy a ps4 for this..."
    Ridiculous. So the game doesn't matter?
    You do know the PS4 has way MORE exclusives or console exclusives. It's an entire package.
    It's ridiculous statement because NONE of XB1 or PS4 games crossed the 50% of the install base. So based on your silly comment none these games help console sales... LOL "All games runs on future xboxes, games will just run smoother and smoother (or crispier) with better HW."
    Oh here we are future talk. Fortune telling stuff... lol "A feature-lacking ask-for-trouble no-bc/fc-guaranteed cheap gaming rig?"
    Another silly comment.
    Feature lacking? HAHAHAHA A pc probably has WAY more feature than all these console!!
    No BC guaranteed? That makes no real sense since there is no real generations. and ofc you can have multiple OS or even virtual machines. And you're seriously comparing PC to the BC of XB1? LOL
    An handful original XB games, around 30% of 360 games. Don't make me laugh.
    Also FC? LOL Looks like you don't know what that means.
    Ask for trouble? lol I game on PC. I have no problems. If you're having problems then too ba for you... lol "Q1: Do you think Sony has the ability to cook up something like UWP and ps1/2/3 VM and let it run on ps4/5/6/7?"
    I don't know I don't work for Sony. It's funny how you want to try to make MS sound like this amazing company who don't block gamers.It's amazing how I can't play Recore on a Windows 7 or 8. They are not even supporting the previous version of their main product. "Q2: Will Sony offer cloud sync free with unlimited data and cross platform capability?"
    Unlimited data? lol No. No company can really provide that. Oh and MS doesn't provide it. This is what is on XB's site:"If you're an avid gamer, you might run out of cloud storage space. If so, free up space by deleting unwanted game saves. Or, keep playing without saving to the cloud." Cross platform? Are you talking about cross-save feature? If you don't know what's that, look it up... "Q3: Can Sony deliver PC (win10), console (PSes), portable device (win10arm) combo?"
    Sony does PC, console and portable console. 
    Oh and I see you talking a lot about win10arm.
    Are you talking of an actual product? Where can I buy a device with that? "Q4: What's the requirement to have a feature like GamePass on consoles?" 
    No idea. I don't work for MS. "Q5: Does / Will GamePass (oxOg, xb360, xb1 and future games will have to run on xb1 and every newer xboxes) have a competition?"
    There are many renting services around. I guess Gamepass has competition. But honestly I hope gamepass, PSNow and other of these services fail... ---------------------------------------------
    There you go.
    Now why don't you reply some of my questions. What's funny is that all you're talking about is features or the future... but nothing much on games.
    Personally when I buy a new gen console it's to play new gen games. Storing space for saved games, playing old games, renting really old games isn't really my priority.
    So here goes.
    1) Are you satisfied with the lack of exclusives or even console exclusives by XB1 compared to it's competition?
    2) Do you think MS should invest more into making games?
    3) Besides the yearly forza, the console exclusives for XB1 announced in more than 24 months is 1) Ori sequel, 2) State of decay 2 and 3) Super Lucky tale. Are you satisfied by that?
    4) All recent major MS games Halo 5, Gears 4, Halo wars 2 & Forza 7 all have microtransactions/loot boxes. Are you happy that these full price games having these things? 
    5) Do you think microtransactions/loot boxes is great for gaming? Would you want/prefer MS not implement this stuff?
  • > How can I be schooled by something I never saw and probably doesn't even exists. HAHA
    You were saying all those HW comparisons are fake and you only believe benchmark, and got schooled for talking nonsense. > You do know the PS4 has way MORE exclusives or console exclusives. It's an entire package.
    Entire package?
    People know Dragon Quest / Last Guardian will be on ps4, but they are not interested and buy a ps4 for Fifa, GTA kinda logic? > Feature lacking?
    Can your PC do Power-ON -> Press A -> back to exactly where you left your game session days ago, even during a boss fight?
    Bought a Steam game in the office with PC browser, can my Steam game be ready to play when I get home? > No BC guaranteed?
    Can you guarantee all games from the past to be compatible with newer / future HW? I remember a few games I bought from Steam already ceased working.
    multiple OS or even virtual machines <- this is trouble
    There was an article about ATI's new card and people down the comment section are already bashing (over Nvidia nad ATI) which $500 card sucked, crashes, driver issues and such.
    The problem is not which maker sucked, I'm sure they've all done their QA properly before shipping (in a controlled environment, with their choice of ram, cpu, mother board, os version, no additional user-installed-software, no try-to-be-smart-enhancement-ware, etc).
    No trouble?
    Every one build their PC differently, runs what every weird background-services, how many combination can you have?
    Can you guarantee a bug from your machine can be reproduced on every PCs around the globe? Your problem and solution to a problem is everyone’s problem & solution?
    How easy is for dev to come out with a solution for YOU?
    Even with iPhone, iPhoneA + iOSX, iPhoneA + iOSY, iPhoneB + iOSX, iPhoneB + iOSY will sometimes give you different results and exceptions.
    With Android, 3rd party Android phone and custom Android ROM will have tempered APIs.
    No trouble?
    Will dev want to keep maintaining ALL games every made 10, 20, 30 years on a everyone's-different, keep-changing platform? A1, both UWP and VM are logically not possible. How could you not know? Are you a programmer? A2: they could, with big lose.
    > If you're an avid gamer, you might run out of cloud storage space.
    On Xbox One, each game is provided storage. As a user's game library grows, so does their cloud storage, and an Xbox Live Gold subscription isn’t required. This gives Xbox One users unlimited cloud storage based on their library size.
    And there's no price list. A3: logically not possible. A4: BC/FC & cloud-sync. A5: no, not even Apple or Google can deliver this. > 1) Are you satisfied with the lack of exclusives or even console exclusives by
    > XB1 compared to it's competition?
    I'm fan to no games / series, exclusives are just games. I don’t run short on games, I also have many unbeaten ones.
    But I won't support games with old-gen-programming-concept from major devs full priced. Will only consider if it dropped to indie price range. > 2) Do you think MS should invest more into making games?

    No good and no evil. Already wrote a series of if-else for you.
  • can't edit anymore but this one's important. "Can your PC do Power-ON -> Press A -> back to exactly where you left your game session days ago, even during a boss fight?" in mere seconds. I hate waiting, same as moving pointer here and three + clicking around to navigate UI == inefficient.
  • "You were saying all those HW comparisons are fake and you only believe benchmark, and got schooled for talking nonsense."
    Why do you guys always do this? Why are you LYING!! Please stop lying. I never said the comparison are fake. Either you're lying or you can't understand simple english!! I have a feeling you don't even know what benchmark means. So no. No one "schooled" me. If you don't know what benchmark means I can't really help you... "Entire package?
    People know Dragon Quest / Last Guardian will be on ps4, but they are not interested and buy a ps4 for Fifa, GTA kinda logic?"
    Oh boy. You don't get it. When buying a console someone will look at the games both consoles offer. Both offer FIFA or GTA, BUT one offer WAY more games that are not on the other. This extra argument can make all the difference for some people.
    It's amazing how you guys don't get that simple logic. Even MS talks "exclusives", "exclusives", "exclusives" during their E3 conference (even though most were just indie games that were timed "exclusives"). Consoles with bigger (more exclusives) have almost always sold more console history.  It's really not difficult to understand the importance of exclusives... If you still don't get it, then the problem is with you. I can't really help you. LOL  "Can your PC do Power-ON -> Press A -> back to exactly where you left your game session days ago, even during a boss fight?
    Bought a Steam game in the office with PC browser, can my Steam game be ready to play when I get home?
    I hate waiting, same as moving pointer here and three + clicking around to navigate UI == inefficient."
    Well, there is something call stand by mode.
    And you could use remote desktop, or things like teamViewer, VNC...
    lol "moving pointer"? Steam's Big Picture mode.
    It's actually ridiculous how you want to compare features of a PC with a console.
    So can you do this with your precious console: 
    1) play with mouse + KB
    2) play with a steam controller/PS4 controller
    3) can you upgrade GPU, CPU,...
    4) play games like FIFA or COD online without paying a subsciption to MS
    5) Can you return digital games?
    6) Can you use stuff like Office, Adobe creative suite, Visual Studio...
    7) Are there as many mods on consoles?
    ... I could go on and on but this is just ridiculous. I'm sorry to tell you that in your attempt to damage control for MS/XB, you sound ridiculous. "Can you guarantee all games from the past to be compatible with newer / future HW? I remember a few games I bought from Steam already ceased working.
    multiple OS or even virtual machines <- this is trouble"
    multiple OS and virtual machines = trouble? LOL 
    Again it's not my fault if you're having trouble. It's really simple to use. But I can understand simple-minded people having a problem. I guess they can always ask people around them for help... I think PC gaming has a great community... They can help you with your problems. The funny thing is that you want to attack PC's "BC" while defending XB1. The XB1 can emulate an handful of XB games and around 35% X360 games.  Can you play Fahrenheit on your XB1? No well I can on all my PC...
    A current PC can play MOST (a huge percentage) of games. Your precious XB1 can't play most old XB games available (around 20%) and you dare question PC's ability to play older games? Ridiculous once again... I understand that there are problems for some games (like on consoles) or some hardware but that's the price to pay for freedom I guess. No one is really asking for "trouble" as most games/hardware runs fine, I believe. "No trouble?"
    Read my comment again. I said "I have no problems". As in me. I never had more problems than on my XB 360... "A1, both UWP and VM are logically not possible. How could you not know? Are you a programmer?"
    Wait what? Who said anything about VM? All I'm saying is that you want to talk about how MS supports BC and FC. But this company doesn't even allow their latests games to be played on their previous version of windows. They could have supported windows 7 and windows 8 owners but no. They want people to move to windows 10. So much for FC. LOL "On Xbox One, each game is provided storage. As a user's game library grows, so does their cloud storage, and an Xbox Live Gold subscription isn’t required. This gives Xbox One users unlimited cloud storage based on their library size.
    And there's no price list." 
    Note: "based on their library size"
    There is a limit. Try reading it again and try to understand...  "A3: logically not possible." 
    What? That doesn't even make sense.
    You didn't even reply about win10arm. 
    You're the only one I see here talking so much about that thing. Why don't you answer these questions? "A4: BC/FC & cloud-sync."
    Whatever that means... "A5: no, not even Apple or Google can deliver this."
    huh? What are you talking about? "I'm fan to no games / series, exclusives are just games. I don’t run short on games, I also have many unbeaten ones.
    But I won't support games with old-gen-programming-concept from major devs full priced. Will only consider if it dropped to indie price range."
    You're avoiding the question and answering besides the point. ofc this and the 3rd was whether you are satisified by the number of games made by MS for their gamers compared to the competition.
    Are you satisfied by the number of games announced by MS in the last 26 months?
    It's really funny because for me it looks like you are not answering this because you don't want to criticise the company. Does it pain you that much to criticise them? lol "> 2) Do you think MS should invest more into making games?
    Why not?"
    Answering with a question... Why not you ask? I don't know. I have never seen you ask for more games. I have never seen you criticise MS's lack of effort when it comes to making games. I have never seen you wanting new games. Even here you're answering with a question. Not to the point... "No good and no evil. Already wrote a series of if-else for you."
    I'm not talking of if else. I'm talking of how is it good for gaming. That's it. If there is nothing good for gaming then ok...

    You are asking me "should they do it?". My answer is "Will expanding hurt'em? No. Then, why not?"
    If you ask me "should they drop all?", my answer will be no, cause there will be consequences. And you might want to check back the comment section in the other article.
    Several told you the benchmark program will never exist, and asked you to go watch DF. > You don't get it. When buying a console someone will look at the games both consoles offer
    So, if someone don't care about / won't ever play / don't even know Dragon Quest, will totally buy a ps4 for it?
    People who's into DQ will buy a ps4 for it. People who's interested in fifa, won't bother with DQ and will check which console runs fifa best. And MS had a really bad e3-13, the rest is just friends pulling friends and leftover-bad-impressions doing. > multiple OS or even virtual machines
    Why is this not trouble?
    You need to spend time to install those, and everytime, in order to play a game, you need to spend time launching those? > Well, there is something call stand by mode.
    Do you / majority tell your / their PC to sleep during a boss fight then come back days later? > And you could use remote desktop, or things like teamViewer, VNC...
    Why would someone wants to do those on a console? > lol "moving pointer"? Steam's Big Picture mode.
    Won't you still need to navigate around menus, select a few things, wait for loading / sync?
    How do you launch a Steam game?
    boot up pc -> loading -> desktop -> move cursor -> click click -> Steam launch before game -> sync -> game launch -> logos -> main menu -> mose cursor -> click -> save menu -> mose cursor -> click -> load & unpack resources -> back to save point.
    Somehow like this right? How many seconds does it take?
    Is it any faster replacing "move corsor -> click" with "press d-pad -> A"?
    Is it "Power-On -> A -> where I left it days ago" fast? > It's actually ridiculous how you want to compare features of a PC with a console.
    I'm talking about features for gaming, gaming experience. > 1) play with mouse + KB
    Don't care. > 2) play with a steam controller/PS4 controller
    Don't care. Why would I want a ps4 controller in my bag? with non-replaceable battery and soon-wear-out-analog?
    I use elite xb1 gamepad @ home, I'd choce to carry an elite if it has a bluetooth option. > 3) can you upgrade GPU, CPU,...
    Don't care. I buy branded PC only. e.g. Alienware (they do look after their product, unlike custom build ones or cheaper NB that you have to look after yourself) and Surface lines. > 4) play games like FIFA or COD online without paying a subsciption to MS
    I don't care paying. > 5) Can you return digital games?
    Sure, I did. I pre-order too late and couldn't got my 3-other-games-free. I then told the CS on the release day that it's my fault that I didn't read the condition & terms, please let me refund so I can go Amazon and get a physic copy with free game code. No hassles. > 6) Can you use stuff like Office, Adobe creative suite, Visual Studio...
    Why would I want those on my console? It's on my PC. Don't disturb with my gaming. > 7) Are there as many mods on consoles?
    Don't care. The main reason I play game, is to know how they are built, enjoyment comes 2nd. That is why I don't care about series, I'm not fond of any game / dev / director. I certainly don't need mod, and if you ask me "should they do it?" I'll answer "I can live with it or without, why not?" Again, re-read the post.
  • btw,
    * Bought a Steam game in the office with PC browser, can my Steam game be ready to play when I get home?
    Can Steam start processing your DL queue during standby mode? If not, how is it more convenient, feature-more-rich? * There was an article about ATI's new card and people down the comment section are already bashing (over Nvidia nad ATI) which $500 card sucked, crashes, driver issues and such.
    Compare to consoles, how is this not a troubled platform? Error from a user's machine might not be everyone's error, dev might not be able to recreate your environment to reproduce the error.
    Will your be serious about / spend resources on a everyday-changing, everyone's-different platform?
    How is this not troublesome? After the Fall Creator update, someone complained about Edge being slow on his machine, fxxk MS! And people replied, Edge runs fine on their machine, (tbh, it runs fine on my Alienware & Surface Pro too, not to mention, mine runs extras. I inject my codes to automate / enhance things) it'd be your driver's problem. This guy's got a Lenovo. Weeks later, he said Edge's now butter smooth!
    It's not a game, but how's this not a troublesome target platform? Years of programming (and hacking) experiences, users never blame themselves. Android Custom ROM is trouble, yet, geeks think they are doing something smart. I remember reading someone said, he bought a powerful gaming rig after e3-13, and a game crashed on it, he googled and found a solution, that he have to hex-edit a file to bypass the error, troublesome. After a few more not-so-smooth-experience, he's back to console gaming.
    Seriously, I don't care about your choice, I'm cool that you can endure those troubles and choose to game on a PC (which, it's not a dedicate game machine). This is the only thing that's important, not you nor me.
    Q: Household around the globe, except Asia (exclude Japan), is PC gaming main stream? Do console & PC market blend? Have you ever heard of parents / elders gifting Steam code and PC (including parts) to kids? Is it a phenomenon around western countries? > because you don't want to criticise the company
    Because I don't care about how MS do things. I only if-else things. e.g. Product A has 4 pros, 1 cons, 1 even & 2 I-don't-care, I go for product A.
    And, from my perspective, they are on the right direction. Not my business, but the last event of GoW4 had a 6.4m participants + MS and its e-sports business partners are still throw money @ gamers, they are doing fine.
  • About the cloud save.
    https://www.kotaku.com.au/2015/07/the-ps4s-cloud-save-system-is-inadequate/
    https://www.onmsft.com/news/all-xbox-live-members-receive-unlimited-clou...
    Unless you are calling'em liar or didn't do their homework.
    * the price for ps4 cloud save has changed, but Xboxes's service stays the same. Every game has a cap (but I guess no one really know how big the cap is, of course they are not gonna give every user Gs for each game), but you can have unlimited games.
  • It's really funny how you avoid talking about stuff you don't want to talk about by ignoring what was asked.
    1) Why are you no longer talking of win10arm? Are you ignoring those questions?
    2) If exclsuives don't matter why MS always talks "exclusives", "exclusives", "exclusives" during their E3 conferences? --------------------------------
    "You are asking me "should they do it?". My answer is "Will expanding hurt'em? No. Then, why not?"
    If you ask me "should they drop all?", my answer will be no, cause there will be consequences."
    Who said anything about them dropping all? 
    I'm just asking you if you're satisfies with Lucky's tale, State of decay 2, and the sequel to Ori (besides the yearly Forza) as what MS is announcing to their gamers in the last 27 months. You seem totally satsifies by that. I don't really seem to want them to put more effort into making new games for you guys. I guess that really say it all. 
    I don't need to add anything to that. Because in your eyes MS can do no wrong, they should never be criticised. You can't criticise microtransactions because that is MS's strategy... I guess that's what it means to be a company/brand fan. I'm glad I'm not like that with any company...  Personally I want ALL companies to invest more in making games for their customers. I feel MS's offering disgraceful and pathetic. I think it's because of people like you that these companies don't invest in making new games and focus on ways of playing old games...
    --------------------------------
    "And you might want to check back the comment section in the other article.
    Several told you the benchmark program will never exist, and asked you to go watch DF."
    Like I said previously you don't seem to know what benchmark means. How can you compare hardware when they are not at the same settings. XB1x has missing features compared to PC's ultra. Some games run on dynamic resolution while on PC it's native. DF are yet to show true benchmarks between different PCs and the XB1x. Personally I find that strange...
    But please look up what bechmarks are before telling me DF...

    "So, if someone don't care about / won't ever play / don't even know Dragon Quest, will totally buy a ps4 for it?
    People who's into DQ will buy a ps4 for it. People who's interested in fifa, won't bother with DQ and will check which console runs fifa best. And MS had a really bad e3-13, the rest is just friends pulling friends and leftover-bad-impressions doing."
    So people just buy FIFA. One game? You can't really argue about the importance of exclusives. 
    Why? 1) History has shown that it's more important than power.
    2) It's logical. More games means more reasons to buy a console. 
    And even with your friends pulling friends argument. If one friend want any of the massive amount of PS4 exclusives/console exclusive he'll be on PS4 and pull the one who only cares about FIFA to PS4. Also a LOT more people has PS4 than XB1, so more people are pulling others towards PS4.
    Sorry but your arguments are working against you. LOL
    --------------------------------
    "Why is this not trouble?
    You need to spend time to install those, and everytime, in order to play a game, you need to spend time launching those?"
    There are very few games that needs to do this. We are talking about REALLY old games. Games that XB1 owners can't even dream of playing on their console. It's really trouble vs not being able to play at all. LOL
    Once again ridiculous argument when you compare your precious XB1 to PC.
    --------------------------------
    "> Well, there is something call stand by mode.
    Do you / majority tell your / their PC to sleep during a boss fight then come back days later?"
    "> And you could use remote desktop, or things like teamViewer, VNC...
    Why would someone wants to do those on a console?"
    Are you kidding???
    You asked me if you could do that On PC. The answer is YES!!! Don't talk about other stuff. The answer is YES, now move along...
    --------------------------------
    "Won't you still need to navigate around menus, select a few things, wait for loading / sync?
    How do you launch a Steam game?
    boot up pc -> loading -> desktop -> move cursor -> click click -> Steam launch before game -> sync -> game launch -> logos -> main menu -> mose cursor -> click -> save menu -> mose cursor -> click -> load & unpack resources -> back to save point.
    Somehow like this right? How many seconds does it take?
    Is it any faster replacing "move corsor -> click" with "press d-pad -> A"?
    Is it "Power-On -> A -> where I left it days ago" fast?"
    You're really nitpicking here. I mean seriously "moving cursor" ? Are you that lazy? 
    Well if that is really a priority, then 1) you could leave on stand by mode (like your console). 2) Do you know that you can add shortcuts on PC? 3) You could have a service that launch your game at launch of the OS. 4) Install SteamOS.
    So many solutions to your demands. This is PC. It's all about options. 
    Looks like you never owned a PC in your life... lol
    --------------------------------
    "> It's actually ridiculous how you want to compare features of a PC with a console.
    I'm talking about features for gaming, gaming experience."
    Youare the one who said "Feature lacking" not me. You didn't tell "gaming feature lacking". I guess you're moving the goalpost once again. LOL But even when it comes to gaming features it's ridiculous to compare both...
    --------------------------------
    "> 1) play with mouse + KB
    Don't care."
    And I don't care about what you care about. We are comparing features. Options for gamers on PC v XB1. 
    Not your personal preference. LOL
    --------------------------------
    "Don't care. Why would I want a ps4 controller in my bag? with non-replaceable battery and soon-wear-out-analog?
    I use elite xb1 gamepad @ home, I'd choce to carry an elite if it has a bluetooth option."
    Again comparing features not your preference. On the PC you have choice. You can play with the controller of your choice. I don't like using $150 controllers that needs AA batteries LOL. I prefer my PS4 controller. You prefer your controller that needs AA batteries (LOL). PC provide choice as I can play with anthing. XB1 doesn't give you that options/feature
    --------------------------------
    "Don't care. I buy branded PC only. e.g. Alienware (they do look after their product, unlike custom build ones or cheaper NB that you have to look after yourself) and Surface lines."
    Same point as earlier.
    --------------------------------
    "> 4) play games like FIFA or COD online without paying a subsciption to MS
    I don't care paying."
    Same point as earlier
    --------------------------------
    "Sure, I did. I pre-order too late and couldn't got my 3-other-games-free. I then told the CS on the release day that it's my fault that I didn't read the condition & terms, please let me refund so I can go Amazon and get a physic copy with free game code. No hassles."
    XB/MS doesn't provide refunds. End of the story.
    --------------------------------
    "Why would I want those on my console? It's on my PC. Don't disturb with my gaming."
    PC can do so many thing that a XB1 can't. So many more features. So much for your ridiculous bs "feature lacking"
    --------------------------------
    "Don't care. The main reason I play game, is to know how they are built, enjoyment comes 2nd. That is why I don't care about series, I'm not fond of any game / dev / director. I certainly don't need mod, and if you ask me "should they do it?" I'll answer "I can live with it or without, why not?""
    Same as above
    --------------------------------
    It's hilarious how you are turning this into a subjective debate. I don't discuss opinions and subjective arguments. It's just a waste of time... If the only way out is "I don't care", it's not a valid point because others care it's still a PLUS for PC.
    --------------------------------
    "This is the only thing that's important, not you nor me.
    Q: Household around the globe, except Asia (exclude Japan), is PC gaming main stream? Do console & PC market blend? Have you ever heard of parents / elders gifting Steam code and PC (including parts) to kids? Is it a phenomenon around western countries?"
    Why take out Asians? Thats kinda racist from you...
    Either way there are more gamers on steam, GOG... than XB1. So that cancels all that you're trying to talk about.
    --------------------------------
    "About the cloud save.
    https://www.kotaku.com.au/2015/07/the-ps4s-cloud-save-system-is-inadequate/
    https://www.onmsft.com/news/all-xbox-live-members-receive-unlimited-clou...
    Unless you are calling'em liar or didn't do their homework.
    * the price for ps4 cloud save has changed, but Xboxes's service stays the same.
    Every game has a cap (but I guess no one really know how big the cap is, of course they are not gonna give every user Gs for each game), but you can have unlimited games."
    I got the info from XB's site. Are you saying MS are liars? It's limited... 
    --------------------------------
  • Many assumption and emotional
    The talk become messy and I think it is better to sort things out 1 by 1, but here's 1 thing I'd like to confirm first. I'm a PC gamer, I play cross-platform games on PC and consoles (ps4, xbox, switch) are for exclusives.
    Since MS's bring xbox games to PC, I can now play xbox games on PC, therefore I don't need a xbox.
    Is this how you choose your gaming device? I game on PC and I don't need a xbox. Majority (today's console gamers, average households, even people from ps3/xb360 era) are like me. Therefore, xb1 sold only half of ps4 and will continue to be half of ps4 if they don't stop XPA? Is this what's on your mind?
  • "Is this how you choose your gaming device?" Yes. I don't buy a new console of hardware to play a game that I can play with what I already own.
  • without a doubt the best play to play games is Xbox. No question. with only 4 months development work we are seeing great results. Wait till next year when devs have had more time again. 
  • Where did you get the 4 months number?
  • This guy lies and makes up a lot of stuff. I wouldn't take him seriously.
  • That's hilarious coming from you...
  • @Random Really? So have I ever lied here? Come on. Make me laugh just quote me ONCE.  I'll guess that you won't be able and that your comment will
