I read the spec on the new Xbox that it doesn't do 8k only up to 4k which i am waiting for the new Xbox to be released but no word as it says November time 2020 ready for Xmas but i reckon it will sell around the £500 or more for the disc drive version .
But i think its been delayed because of the virus as there is no word on pre orders yet but reckon Sony will release theirs first but spec wise the Xbox is a lot better the the PS5 and the fact the PS5 looks like router

I have no answer to that mate other than I still believe it’s 8K but their target performance is 4K gamers because not many people have 8K TVs.

I think you’re right mate there does seem to be some confusion with 8K:


Games or movies in 8K? How will that work with movies?
Games will not be in 8k as it would take too much processing power to play the game properly and you would get a drop in FPS... frame per second which both Xbox & PS5 will running anything up to 30-160 FPS which makes the game run much faster and smoother at the top end of 160 FPS .
Going by the Xbox spec the drive is only a 4K blu- ray drive which all that will do is 4K unless they bring software to increase the quality to 8k which I am not sure if that’s possible .
But do remember Xbox saying it would be a 8k capable Xbox so I am confused my self but as you see from the Microsoft website it says 4K

No but Sony has lunched there first view of the PS5 at a gaming show which is more then Xbox has done so my thinking is the PS5 will be released first but both the PS5 & Xbox are meant to be released November /December time and Pre-orders the end of summer but because of the virus i think its held both back so i have no idea if things have changed
