Forums - Microsoft Discussion - Digital Foundry: Halo 5 on Xbox One X: The Way It's Meant To Be Played?

This is the one I have been waiting for since it was announced that Halo 5 would get getting an upgrade. 

Get your popcorn ready.

 

 

 

"Here's John's full technical breakdown of Halo 5's ultra HD upgrade for Xbox One X. It's the most dramatic improvement over base hardware we've seen yet and a great showcase for the new console."

Why not give your thoughts about it? Is it a big improvement in your opinion, is it as good as you were hoping, etc. You really should put more effort into your threads, at least it's better then the previous one, which was just an advert and a single completely generic sentence.



LTD: PS4 - 125m, Switch - 110m, XBO - 51m

2020: PS4 - 9m, Switch - 22.5m, XBO - 2.5m, PS5 - 4.5m, XBX - 2.8m

Report me to the mods if I am doing something wrong. 

 

Other than that please only comment on the topic.

I was hoping I wouldn't need to report you to the mods to encourage you to take part in your own threads. You want people to stay on topic? Perhaps you should take part in the topic too, you don't even comment on the threads you yourself create.

VGC isn't your hit & run advertising space. If you don't want to offer your input on a topic or discuss it, then don't post it.

Your last three threads are all single sentences followed by a smiley face and a link to a video, and then you never post in them again.

Did you come in here to just complain? Really?

The game looks beautiful, played it for about a hour last night. So much sharper and fluid feeling. Great job 343.

Are you playing in 4K or 1080P? 

 

I love 343 and their Halo games are my favorite.

4k   Looks really nice.  One great thing as well is the 4k option with recording clips. They look so much better now. Love it



I haven’t played it in awhile and only beat the first couple campaign missions (on the hardest setting.. they’re hard). Does the base Xbone have frame rate issues? Don’t care for the MP, though the mode with the cards can be fun if the teams aren’t wildly unbalanced. War zone?



To answer your question in the title. No. Not as long as there is a platform where it looks better, runs better and has the superior input method.

Maybe it's the only way to play it but it's certainly not the way it's meant to.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

So...How is it meant to be played then? PC? Not available on PC . Only forge. Switch? Nope. PS4? Nope. Sitting down? Standing up? Hanging upside down?   Please enlighten us.
