The E3 2016 Press Conference also saw the tech firm announce a late 2017 tentative release date for the Xbox 2 quite predictably, considering the fact that the Zodiac birth sign Scorpio rangers from October 23 to November 21, and we might very well see the Xbox 2 rolled out by Microsoft sometime within that frame. Nevertheless, Xbox enthusiasts will surely be on their toes waiting for further news pertaining to the console.
Gaming in the Highest Resolution: 4K Compatibility
Microsoft’s biggest competitors, Sony’s latest PlayStation 4 supports 4K streaming and 4K up-scaling for video content with their next console confirmed to feature native 4K gaming. With the PS5 well far from its propped release date, there is n doubt about the fact that the Xbox Two will be the first console ever to offer gamers a true 4K gaming experience. The forthcoming console from Microsoft has been confirmed to feature 6 teraflops(trillion floating point operations per second) of graphical computing performance as well as an eight-core AMD APU making it perfectly compatible to successfully support gaming in the highest resolution specification possible.
Virtual reality does not take a whole lot these days except for a basic headset and a compatible platform. Microsoft has been lagging behind Sony at least this particular foray with the Japanese company already rolling out dedicated VR headsets for the PS4 variants. Nevertheless, it’s better late than ever as the Xbox 2 is pegged to be rolled out with Microsoft’s un-named VR headset offering premium virtual reality experience paired up with 4K resolution.
