So recently I picked up an Xbox One X and of course we all know how much I love Elite Dangerous. The picture of the Cobra was actually taken in 4K. After having spent some time with the XB One I have to say, unless you are one of the roughly 16% of the American population with the television that can take advantage of the systems power ( luckily I am) just buy a the Xb one S. Also you can read more about my opinion on that here. Is 4k that big of an upgrade?
On to the topic at hand tho, Elite Dangerous gets a nice boost from being on the One X. The following image was taken On my PS4 pro taken just on my standard settings with no HDR or anything like that.
As you can see there is a noticeable difference. Honestly I will keep playing on my PS4 because I have much more time into the game there and graphically the difference isn’t enough to make me lose that progress. Many however want the best graphics possible, and if you have access to a 4K television and an Xbox one that is where you should go. Having played both tho I will say that admittedly the PS4 does control slightly better. It isn’t game changing better, but I did notice.
The bottom line however is simple, The Xbox One X does have better graphics, but having played both side by side with the enhancements turned on, only the most graphics dedicated person will want to make the switch. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
