Microsoft has spent a long time talking up the 4K capabilities of its Xbox One X, but what about those of us playing at other resolutions? The extra horsepower the Xbox One X provides isn't entirely wasted on displays lower than 4K, as the Xbox One X also has supersampling capabilities.

Xbox One X gets a tempting PUBG deal

Xbox One X gets a tempting PUBG deal

That PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is doing well on Xbox One isn't really much of a shock. The game has become one of the most successful PC games of all time, so to hear Microsoft announce today that it has attracted more than 1 million players in its first 48 hours is just par for the course.

Xbox One X is off to a surprisingly strong start

Xbox One X is off to a surprisingly strong start

Though the Xbox One X offers a lot of power for a home console, there's been some concern that it may be priced outside of the range that many gamers consider acceptable. After all, at $500, it's the most expensive console out there, with its closest competitor being the PlayStation 4 Pro at $400. When you couple that with the fact that 4K has yet to really take off as the next big thing, it becomes clear that Microsoft is kind of venturing into uncharted territory here.

Xbox One X 4K HDR Official Demo app released by Microsoft

The app is called Insects, and its intention is to show what the Xbox One X is really capable of at its best. What we're dealing with here is an app originally intended only for Microsoft's use in showing developers the ins and outs of the Xbox One. Microsoft decided to tweak the app in order to release it publicly for Xbox One X owners to experience the full HDR10 and 4K Ultra HD power of the console just in case they didn't already have a game that did so.
