When the Xbox One X launched in November, players discovered the console could run a completely un-patched disc version of The Witcher 3 at 60 frames per second. The Xbox One X update for the game dropped today, giving players a choice of 60 FPS performance or 30 FPS at 4K.
The Xbox One X update for Fallout 4 arrived this week, and while Microsoft’s machine delivers the best-looking un-modded version of the game on a console, Digital Foundry’s in-depth comparison found the PlayStation 4 Pro’s version ran a tiny bit smoother. That’s the difference full 4K makes.
The 4K and full HD remaster of Star Ocean: The Last Hope is now available on PC and PS4 for the special launch price of $20.99. This might be my last hope of playing through one of the best 3D Star Ocean games, after my previous attempt was thwarted 25 hours in by burglars.
Today marks the launch of Elgato’s 4K60 Pro, the first “consumer-priced” capture card that will grab 4K video at 60 frames per second. It works great, but its PC requirements are as steep as its $400 price tag.
When my older capture devices wouldn’t accept a 4K signal, I switched to Avermedia’s Live Gamer Portable 2 Plus. The $200 box records 1080p, 60 FPS video to a PC or SD card, while still displaying at 4K on my TV. Downside—it won’t pass an HDR signal. Upside—it’s shaped like a Toblerone.
Here’s a comparison between Star Wars Battlefront II running on Xbox One and Xbox One X, courtesy of YouTuber ElAnalistaDeBits. It’s a great example of the difference high-resolution textures make. Looks so clean and crisp, doesn’t it?
If you’re ready to make the leap to 4K (and if your computer can handle it), Amazon’s blowing out refurbished 28" Samsung monitors for just $230, today only. It’s not an IPS panel, unfortunately, but that’s still one of the best prices we’ve ever seen on a 60Hz 4K display.
In the years since its release, Apple TV has often lagged behind competitors, seemingly forgotten by Apple in favor of phones, computers, and even watches. And the Apple TV’s status as the “other” on Apple’s list of sales feels evident when you notice how late to the 4K party it is. Roku launched a 4K box last year…
A 40-inch ultra HD curved LCD monitor with the ability to display up to four full HD inputs simultaneously, Philips’ BDM4037UW seems like the perfect large monitor for a multi-platform gamer. And it would be, if not for a couple small missteps and one large stumble.
Age of Empires Definitive Edition will come to PC on Oct. 19, 2017, exclusively for Windows 10. A new trailer from Gamescom showed off the new 4k graphics, remastered soundtrack, and lots of good zoom.
Xbox One X will have a limted “Project Scorpio” edition available when it launches this fall Microsoft announced today at its pre-Gamescom briefing.
TCL’s 2017 4K TVs aren’t technological marvels, but they might just represent the best value in the TV world, and the 49" model is on sale for an all-time low $360 today.
The TCL P-Series sounds too good to be true. At almost half the price of similarly outfitted sets, these Roku-powered 4K TVs feature high-end features like full-array local dimming, high dynamic range (HDR), and Dolby Vision. All that, and a 55-inch model will only set you back $650. So is it really too good to be…
This is footage of The Witcher 3 running 60fps at 8k resolution. That’s 7680 x 4320. On max settings. Gulp.
VIZIO’s M-series of 4K TVs dominated the holiday shopping season in 2015, but if you held out this long, you can save big on the 60" model today, courtesy of Dell. $800 is the best price we’ve ever seen on this model, and that price gets you local dimming, smart apps, and a well-reviewed upscaling engine for 1080p…
If you’re ready to step up to 4K, you won’t find a better deal than this 48" Samsung Smart TV for $500. For reference, that’s $100 less than its Black Friday pricing, and $200-$300 less than usual. In fact, it’s almost $180 cheaper than the 40" model of the same set.
