When the game is in motion on somebody's TV the average consumer won't notice much. If it was such a big deal the xbox x would be outselling the pro. But it turns out this vastly superior difference isn't an issue for the average consumer. Last time I heard the pro was in short demand while the xbox x had 100$ slashed off it. 

Bringing up console sales in a review thread about a game you don't even own... 

Yeah, because everyone is going to rush out and spend $500 on a new X1X just for RDR2 hahaha.  

That being said, as an owner of both a PS4 Pro and an X1X (and a switch, gaming PC, 3DS, Vita etc.) I chose to play the vastly superior version of Red Dead on my Xbox One X and I'm so glad I didn't have to settle for half the resolution with choppier frame rates on my Pro.  

You don't even own the game, but if you ever do decide to buy it, enjoy it on your Pro... I'm sure it's still a great experience even if it doesn't look nearly as good.

Goodnight!

You're in this way to deep my friend. BTW i do actually own it. I bought it and spyro last week on that promo that gave me $15 psn credit back. You make it sound like the pro version is shit but i game on a 1080p TV so all that jumbo about the resolution being so high is irrelevant to me. Is it 1080p? Yes. That's all I need. As I said there's a reason why the pro sells much better. People don't care about the X upgrade enough to not get a pro instead.

it's a vastly superior experience in both resolution AND frame rate on the X1X.

Resolution wise, yeah it's a pretty significant difference (if you have a 4K screen mind you).

Frame rate wise, according to reviews, it doesn't change the experience between PS4 Pro and XB1X.

Xbox One X: 29-30 fps on gameplay, drops as low as 21 fps on a single cutscene
PS4 Pro: 26-30 fps on gameplay, drops as low as 25 fps on a single cutscene

Nice, you too. They always assume you don't play other systems, so you gotta prove them wrong this way. And yeah, the Xbox One X is way ahead of the Ps4 Pro version. Not even a question.




It seems a bit premature comparing botw and rdr2 meta's when rdr2 has 20 less reviews than botw currently.

I never assumed he didn't. As I said you guys are in this way too deep. Drop the siege mentality.

In too deep?  

You don't even own a Pro or an X1X haha.

Siege mentality?  You're in EVERY thread damage controlling PlayStation or shitting on Xbox... It's pathetic.

I consider myself an average consumer and I bought the X1X with RDR2 last week instead of just getting it for my Pro because of the drastic differences presented in the digital foundry comparison.

That alone tells me you have no idea what you're taking about.

Why not go play the game rather than arguing about consoles you don't even own?



After some 60 hours, RDR2 is clearly starting to fall behind BotW. While BotW got better with expanded inventory alleviating the issues with fragile weapons, RDR2's game mechanics only get more annoying as time goes on. Saying you need to get used to the controls doesn't hold up anymore after 60 hours of playing. RDR2's mission design is stuck in the past while BotW tried something new while bringing the interactivity in an open world games to new heights. RDR2's biggest achievement is its weather system.

BotW had one annoying, do exactly as intended or fail mission, sneaking into a hideout. In RDR2 almost every story mission is like that. The world is amazing to explore, yet 97 for a game where playing the actual missions feels like a chore to unlock more fun content is rather perplexing. Gameplay is not that important apparently.

Without the story missions RDR2 is an excellent game with an amazing world to explore. It doesn't come close to BotW though.

so your knowledge about the differences is based on the digital foundry video. You never played the ps4 version in person, so it's completely irrelevant that you own an xbox one X with the game and kerotan don't. 

On topic: Red dead is really close to a 98 on metacritic, only the 2 mario galaxy rank above.

Who said it did?

I own both consoles so deciding which version of the game was superior was important to me.

Kerotan, on the other hand, owns neither and only came to this thread to damage control PlayStation and down play Xbox.

Besides, what does any of this have to do with you?
