Is it 4k60 on PC? I thought I read Xbots have to choose between 4k30 or 60 FPS at a “lower resolution”.

 

I thought it would have a 4K / 60FPS mode on the X?  Even if it has dynamic 4K / 60FPS that would be awesome.

They never said anything like that.

They said FH4 will add a 60FPS performance mode. That automatically means that it can't be 4K, since that mode would already be the best available and thus there would be no need for any other kind of mode.
Also FH3 was 4K 30 FPS. There is no magic that could double the framerate while keeping anything else at the same level.
Even dynamic 4K or 1600p/1440p resolution is very doubtful.

In the end you will have a choice between 4K 30FPS and 1080p 60FPS on Xbox One X. Something already possible on FH3 but just never added.

Forza Horizon 3 tops 9 Million Players.

I think it Great for this Masterpiece of a racing Game personally i had a lot of fun with Horizon

Thats alot.... GTsports is supposedly only at 5.5m Players atm.

Wasnt long ago there was a "Congrats GTsports on 5m players" or such announcement (even if the actual number was aroudn 5.5m).
If the guys from Forza got out some PR saying over 9m players, it could be as a responce to the GTSports news.

This gen it seems like Forza could be bigger than GT.

At this rate, it definitely is. But that's because MS has been successful at having numerous critically acclaimed Forza games on the market.

The X1 has had five Forza releases already. They don't talk numbers but I assume that could be over 15 million units sold, physical and digital. Meanwhile GT has only sold a few million because they've struggle to get a complete product on the market. Its possible GT7 will be on next gen as well because its taking so long.

But who would have predicted this? Forza would be more successful than GT in the 8th gen. The expectation was GT would be huge thanks to the success of PS4.

I'm not sure if it improved much, but PC users complained about not being able to achieve consistent 60 fps on FH3. DF assumed it was because it wasn't really built for 60 fps. However, FH4 is being built with 60 fps from the start.

Hence, adding a stable 60 fps in FH3 might require optimization and probably why it was not added. Meanwhile Gears 4 did add a 60 fps mode but with dips.

Wonder how many actual copies are sold?

I would guess around 5-6 million on its own.

The game did have a lot of bundling, but X1 often has many bundles to choose from.

Actually the game didn't have a lot of bundling.  Also the first bundles for it didn't show up until almost a year after it was released and as far as I know it was only bundled a lot in Europe and not in North America.

Guess I might count as two copies.

I bought the game during the E3 sale for $35 IIRC, then a couple weeks later the Blizzard expansion was on sale for $8, down from $20. But now during the Ultimate Game Sale the entire collection is $37 so I thought, what the hell, and contacted MS support to ask for a refund. I've already got over 20 hours in the game so I wasn't expecting a refund but low and behold they refunded not only the game purchase but the expansion as well. So now I own the entire thing. Easily the most pleasant support experience I have ever had. Well, Nintendo's always great as well.

It didn't sell 9 million units.  Over 9 million people played it that includes used copies and copies that where used by multiple people.

9 million is a very impressive number. Lets not forget the game sits on about 3.73m copies sold via physical alone on VGchartz. PC only gamers can only play it via digital distribution. But the real treat is GamePass, that is killing it for getting players to play there games. 

State of Decay 2  - 3m players 

Sea of Thieves - 4m players

Forza Horizon 3 - 9m players.

Solid numbers.



Forza Horizon 3 is an amazing game. This is well deserved.

Its at 7 million sales given that its on PC and Forza is big on PC.
