The Xbox One X will give you wonderful 4K resolution for your games when it comes out November 7, providing you have the TV to support it. But, even if you don't, be prepared to use up a bit more of that 1TB hard drive, as the Xbox One X will always download 4K assets when they are available.
"With the launch of Xbox One X, when it comes to game content our intention is to download the correct assets to the correct console," a Microsoft rep told Stevivor. "This means, regardless of the TV you are playing on, 4K assets will be downloaded to Xbox One X (if available) and the standard 1080p assets will be downloaded to an Xbox One S."
That means 100GB of data for Forza Motorsport 7 for the Xbox One X, while Xbox One and Xbox One S downloads will be significantly less as they only will be using the 1080p assets. Creative director Dan Greenawalt talked to Shacknews at E3 about how the new Forza was initially created with PC in mind before moving it to Xbox One X development. You can see the full interview below.
Microsoft said that it will be up to the developers to determine how they set up downloads for their game, but Microsoft has "made available a feature which will give them significant flexibility when it comes to what gets installed on a user’s console."
