Forums - Gaming Discussion - Red Dead Redemption is Native 4K on Xbox One X, looks stunning!

Should the best reason to own a new premium system be a game from 8 years ago?



Fancy hearing me on an amateur podcast with friends gushing over one of my favourite games? https://youtu.be/1I7JfMMxhf8

The game is loved by many and people have been begging for a remaster, because RDR has such a gorgeous world thats being held back by low resolution and jaggies, and the game can't be played anywhere else in this form.

I think the fact that consoles still exist and thrive while the PC offers pretty much this with every single game available on both the PCs/Consoles proves that not everyone naturally goes for the version of the game with the most pixels.

Again though, you really think that's the best thing the Xbox1X would be used for? playing RDR, as in you would list it on the box of the system over its own native games and other features?

I can't tell if this is praise for RDR or a slur for the X.

You know what ?

Fuck all the noise about BC (it's just another means to end) or whatever, we all just want access to old content or have it enhanced and that's it! 

Remasters/Remasters/Ports/Reimagining or do whatever the hell needs to be done cause I'm alright with rebuying content in another format if it menas a better experience in the end ...

And what about those of us who view "better" as meaning, the way it was originally released? When I play OOT, I want to play it on a real N64 on a CRT with an N64 controller and the surround sound system turned on just like it's the 90's. That's the way it was suppose to be played and playing it any other way, makes it a different game entirely.

For people like me, buying a "new" version=worse. There's no value in it at all. If I want new games, I'll buy new games. If I want old games, I'll buy old games.

Then the Framemeister would be wasted on you.

As someone who doesn't own a X1 but does own a massive library of original Xbox and 360 titles, BC has been one of the most compelling features they have bought to the X1 system.

That said, I still have 2 X360s which do a perfectly fine job of running those games and in fact the resolution boost would be lost on me as I play games at either 1080p or below that on various different screens/projector.

But yeah the BC efforts are commendable to be sure.

even on 1080p screen the game would be super sampled, it would still be a gigantic leap.

Are those the original textures? Because if so, Rockstar North deserves an extra round of applause for how good their work held up with the resolution bump. If not, they can get some applause for going to the trouble of adding a 4K texture pack, lol

Rockstar San Diego made RDR actually, not North. The engine team that made the RAGE engine that Rockstar has been using since 2006 is at Rockstar San Diego as well. 

And yes, those are original textures. All XB1 X does is bump the resolution up by 6x, and give better texture filtering I believe, which is baked into XB1 X at the hardware level. 

Make that a 9x resolution bump (or an 800% increase in pixel count), 16x AF and a locked 30fps. The power of the X.

Common that  is why we all must have hacked consoles and rooted phones because we only buy these new devices to run emulators and not pirated games lol.

Using the old tech is just too logical for everyone lol.

I agree with you. Nothing like the original experience.

Tell that to the poor sods that played Bayonetta on the PS3.
