Will the Xbox 720 be able to do 4K HD?

By Edited Apr 22, 2016 0 2

Will the Xbox 720 be able to do 4K HD? This is the question that comes to my mind every time I think of the next Xbox: Will it be able to do 4K in movies and also will it be able to do 4K resolution in games? With the rumours going round about Sony’s next-gen console code name: PlayStation Orbis (technically we can call it PlayStation 4), being able to do this and also do 3D gaming at 60fps you would guess that we will start hearing rumours about Microsoft’s next-gen console’s capabilities in this department but that is not the case. At least not at the moment.

Ultra HD or 4K HD is definitely going to become the next standard in TV resolution. Ultra HD is the name picked for naming TVs that are of resolution of at least 3840 x 2160. This TVs also have the aspect ratio of at least 16:9. Earlier this year at the Consumer Electronic Show (CES) a lot of Ultra HD TVs were on display from many of the brand leaders including Samsung, LG and Sony (just to name a few). And just recently a new line of Sony 84-inch Ultra HD Bravia set:  Bravia 84X900 was unveiled to the public with a hefty price tag of $25,000. While many will argue that 4K is still not needed and are still very expensive I don’t see why it will not become main stream in a few years from now.

When the Xbox 360 first came out it was able to support HD gaming as well as standard definition for older TVs, but was not able to do 3D gaming. But eventually it supported 3D gaming just like the PS3. So, the question is: Will the Xbox next/Xbox 720 support 4K resolution in games and how can they do this without breaking the system? Drop you comment on this if you have anything news worthy or just a rumour to share on this.

4k is a scam

Not only does it not really look any better than 1080

sonys tvs are absolute garbage. Look worse than there led 1080 tvs

No, of course it wont. Because like 3d, its a marketing ploy

@ Stealth- That doesn't change the fact that 4K is the next standard of HD TV resolution and after that we will see 8k as well. We just have to accept the reality of the fact that Next-gen consoles need to be able to do that from the start their lives to be able to compete with other devices that will come out during the time of their lives. See how people quickly adopted 3D TV and you will really understand what am talking about ;-)
