Forums - Microsoft Discussion - Jeffrey Grubb: Auto HDR is one of next gens coolest features

Tagged games:

Pretty great tech, here. And that Banjo game does look very good for an Xbox 360 game. As someone who repeatedly dips into older games from past generations, this looks very good to me. It should also spruce up plenty of games from this gen that didn't utilize HDR.

Bonus points for the shout out to Titanfall 2 at the end, sequel to GOTG Titanfall.

This is also a good showcase of Auto HDR, with a number of games featured.  Seems like great tech!  Makes me even more excited to get the Series X.

What's Guardians of the Galaxy Titanfall?



I'm really excited for the numerous quality of life features the Series X offers. It breath new life into older games.

It's hardware powered free remastered games. When it came to Xbox one & Xbox one X, Microsoft was losing the generation and not many people got to experience it. But, this time around at the start of the generation it will be front and center. Especially combine with Gamepass meaning that you don't have to purchase any of the game to try it out it's really a system seller. Imagine being a casual gamer making the switch from PS4 on day 1 you get all of these amazing titles included to game pass. That why Xbox series S should be a huge hit for casual gamers. 

It's sad that for many these features will be missing since they won't have the TV to support it. My 2016 Vizio 4K TV is also missing some of the key features to take full advantage of what the Series X/S can offer next-gen.

Really love that MS has this coming to Xbox Series. I don't have a 4K HDR monitor yet, but will try to get one next year.

If someone who never owned an Xbox before buys the Xbox Series, they will be in for a treat!

I'm the same with my TV. I got an LG 4k TV last year, but it's certainly missing features to take advantage of everything. Eventually I'll get a TV that can.

It's the game where the Guardians from Halo 5 show up and save the entire galaxy of Titanfall from the evil emperor Zurg.

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

Auto HDR yuck. That will put many people off HDR as a real improvement to games. It's bad enough TV manufacturers do it. At least you can turn it off? If a game or movie isn't made for HDR, don't add it after the fact. It just looks wrong.
