When we first learned about the Xbox One S at E3 2016, we knew Microsoft’s latest iteration of its Xbox One would support 4K gaming. While we assumed this meant developers could push the hardware to deliver 4K gaming from now on, it turns out previously-released Xbox One titles will also benefit from 4K support.
According to partner director of program management, Mike Ybarra, the Xbox One S will have the capability to upscale all games released on the platform to 4K. The confirmation comes from a series of tweets Ybarra traded with one Twitter user.
This confirmation is surprising to hear considering Microsoft made no mention of this killer feature during its E3 2016 press conference. Being able to upscale all games on the Xbox One to 4K will make early 4K adopters happy to finally get some good use out of the upcoming console. Although for the majority of us that have waited to buy a 4K TV, it looks like 2016 is the year we all might finally have to cave in.
