The graphical leap from this to the next generation of consoles may not be as visible as it used to be, but according to Microsoft’s Phil Spencer, there are other advantages.
Even if there will be an increase in visual quality with the Xbox Series X, it will not be so immediately recognizable compared to the Xbox One, says Xbox CEO Phil Spencer, which will be the case especially at the beginning of the generation. Still, the games will feel more immersive.
“I think we are now at a point where the leaps – with immersion, with the tools we have, and with computing power – will be smaller in terms of visual impact, or that Feature X has not so far was possible and now it is possible and that may sound depressing to some, but what I would say is that the beneficial side of what I see now is really the immersive nature of the content that is being created, “so Phil Spencer.
He further explains: “Today we are able to produce almost lifelike graphics, in certain cases even with the current gene. But if you do that with a very high refresh rate, a solid refresh rate, a very low latency when entering and the ability for game storytellers to combine the emotions and story he’s trying to bring through his game, across the screen, through the controller, and into you? That’s something I feel in games now that is a dramatic step forward. ” Phil Spencer said that next-gen games using this new technology will be able to achieve “even more emotion and impact”.
