Recommended Posts

Hi

I currently have the original Xbox one, and a 1080P (non hdr) TV.

im not buying a new 4K tv anytime soon.

In the meantime: Is it worth upgrading to Xbox one X? Will I notice any visual and performance benefits on RDR2 on my 1080p tv?

I'd guess it would probably run smoother, but it would be the same (or close to it) visually. Probably not worth it in my opinion, but I also don't have my hands on the game yet...

Opinions are unless you upgrade both console and TV, no real reason to upgrade just one.  Though those who have upgraded both, claim it is well worth the price to do.

Now you're tempting me... I bought a 65 inch 4k for my living room when I moved out, just in case. Now I feel like I should just give in and upgrade the xbox...

(searching amazon now...)

Edit: Still ~$400...

Well you know you can't take the money with you and there is only so much they upgrade on a casket, unless you got other responsibilities.  Why not enjoy it now.

Yeah I'm only 25, there's a lot more than a casket I need to pay for...

If there are no problems with your current Xbox. I wouldn't bother upgrading, the only differences you'll notice is that the game would run smoother and the lighting would be a tad bit better. 4K graphics are useless seeing as though our eyes can only register standard HD. So buying an Xbox one X would be a waste of money imo.

But, it is your decision at the end of the day, you do what you want.

What if the person you bought it from sold it "for parts only" but you could never figure out what the problem was...?

I have 2, I REALLY shouldn't be thinking about upgrading...

Well, on the regular Xbox one the games only runs in 800p or something resolution, right?

So if I buy the Xbox one x, they game will probably run at 1080p, with better performance and lightning (and higher resolution textures/anti aliasing), right? 

If so, the benefit should be noticeable right?

I'm not sure that's accurate... As far as I know, xbox one is 1080p. (Looking into it)

I'm curious how different the S and X models are... 1080 vs 4k (essentially)

Edit: I have to stop reading, this is making me want to upgrade... Original xbox one should be running 1080 as long as your display can. I'm finding a lot of conflicting information about this...

Edit: https://www.polygon.com/2018/10/25/18022378/red-dead-redemption-2-ps4-pro-xbox-one-x-comparison

"The base Xbox One renders the game at a 864p resolution, which is by far the lowest of all four options. The PlayStation 4 version runs at a native 1080p; the PlayStation 4 Pro renders the game at 1920x2160, and then upscales it to 4K via what is likely checkerboard rendering, leading to a “softer” image.

But the Xbox One X is able to run Red Dead Redemption 2 at native 4K resolution, leading to the sharpest, highest-quality visuals of all four versions."

Take it to a specialist to see if they know what's up.

Other then that, you'd have to buy a new one.

A quick search on Ebay for used ones are usually $70-$200. Although i did see one on there going for $10...

Does it run at 800p? Sorry I'm a PlayStation guy, never had a Xbox one before.

Well, you could just buy an Xbox one S. I think they run at 1080p? Plus, they're cheaper then the X.

I didn't explain that right lol

I bought it for <$60 on ebay for parts, but it works just fine. I did a factory reset and never found an issue with it. The power supply cost me more than the console.

Saw my buddy playing yesterday. He has an Xbox one s with a 1080 TV, didn't look any better than my original Xbox on my 4k TV. Glad I didn't bother with that, but I'm still curious about the x.
