When a major AAA game launches, buyers want to know how it runs on Xbox One X and PlayStation 4 Pro (PS4 Pro). We reached out to publisher Private Division and a spokesperson for the company said that the game was "4K on Xbox One, no enhancements for PS4 Pro."

Link: Windows Central

Update: Thanks to: @subspecies update, and while for some reason I can't change the title of this thread, I'll just post the update link: The Outer Worlds Is Enhanced on PS4 Pro After All

Now that's something you don't see everyday. Xbox One X gets an even greater version but nothing for the Pro is a rare thing to see. Basically, the X gets 4K and 1080p on both the PS4/Pro since Obsidian Entertainment for whatever reason, opted out of enhancing that version. Keep in mind both X & Pro use different tech but it does show the Pro is outdated! PS5 couldn't come out sooner! I'm sure the Pro will get updated later on.

No doubt you all know I'll be playing Outer Worlds on PC, I'll get an even better version :)

I don't even own a 4k TV

I'm more excited that it's on gamepass, which is probably the best gaming value of the last 3 generations combined.

Even though this game isn't published by MS, they do own Obsidian so they're going to make sure they get the perks of that. Just buy (or Game Pass) the game on PC if you've got one.

That's pretty ridiculous, more or less deliberately gimping the game. Sony should straight up deny them access if they plan on pulling such shit.

You mean the Xbox One X version is exclusively enhanced? Some folks argued for years that exclusives are a great thing, so what's the problem?

Enhanced version on an Obsidian game? Lol. That sh_t is funny. Go look at the new gameplay clip. The graphics look just barely better than Fallout 3(or FO:NV). Basically if you're buying this game for graphics you're wasting your time.

I'm still wondering why graphics options aren't a feature on consoles.

Bury it 10 menus deep. Make me sign a waiver. I'll put my mamma on speed dial. Wear some safety goggles.

This is an Obsidian game though, so I am betting it will have its fair share of performance issues. Surely performance on a Pro might edge out better than a base PS4. Maybe too the Xbox One X might suffer on performance if they try to push the visual fidelity to its limits. Anyhow, this is launching on GamePass so that's what I find most beneficial.

There's an update to the GameSpot article stating the game will get 4K textures and 4K resolution on XB1X and that PS4 Pro will utilize upsampling, so not like Pro is going ignored.

Um, it definitely has better graphics than Fallout 3. Have you seen Fallout 3 recently?

It looks more like vanilla Fallout 4 or extremely modded Fallout 3. But yeah, your main point is right, it's not that pretty.

@DragonfireXZ95: Fair enough lol. Then a modded FO3/NV. Yeah, point is those are ugly graphics. That being said, with Obsidian it doesn't matter to me. This is a day one game for me.

Thanks for the update Sub. For some reason, Gamespot isn't letting me change the damn title thread, so I just ended up putting it in the OP.

Seriously Gamespot, what the hell you guys are doing?

No. At this point, fighting over which version does checkboard 4K the best while struggling to maintain a steady 30fps is really boring. The current consoles have a year left, and if you're a PC owner that maintains just even a decent rig, this stuff is eye-rolling by now.

4K isn't a standard PC gamer spec by a longshot, its whole reason for existance is large TV's, nobody needs 4k sitting 12 inches from the screen on a 20 inch monitor. So while 4K tech on consoles is pretty impressive, it's far from necessary or even standard on a PC rig.

This is just another example of PC Gamers trying to "compete" with consoles for relevance and attention instead of shutting the **** up and playing their supposedly awesome games.

You would think with the massive number of games available on PC, they wouldn't even have time to post here, but here they are sniffing console's underwear and begging for overrated games like RDR2 just because it's available on consoles, which goes to prove that PC fanboys are just console gamers who WISH they had a first-party hype train of their own but don't.

4K isn't a standard console spec LOL. Hell, most of the time X1X can't do it natively, and the Pro isn't even touching it. And it's not as if the majority of console gamers even have those boxes. With PC, you have to buy into it to get it, and you don't have to buy an entire box to do it since a PC is a modular box. The option is always there.

PC games can also be played on televisions, and PC games that are also on console can be played with controllers as well. Console doesn't have any advantages anymore. PC gaming concentrated on performance and fidelity first. The only reason consoles are pushing toward performance IS because of what's capable on PC. Console makers come to AMD for help, not the other way around.

RDR2 on PC is going to make the console versions into trash by any rig with even fair modern components. Since you claim the PC lacks corporate slavery first party cheerleading, explain why Xbox got on their knees crawling to the platform to save their ailing games? Because not enough Xgoons buy exclusives, that's why. Anybody with a damn phone will be playing that shit soon.

F... O... H!

The majority of Xbox owners don't have an X1X. Anyone with the money can run this game better than any current console will. You're still drooling over that stupid box that's about to be even more irrelevant in a year, not that it was relevant when it debuted. The only people that bought it were butthurt Xsoldiers who claimed that resolution wasn't important only a year before.

Phil put all your games on PC, that's an automatic L for all of you that invested 500 bucks in that thing thinking you'd be the top dog.

PC has corporate slavery, it's just lacking the cheerleading lol, Microsoft doesn't even market to you guys and you're locked into their platform.

X1X is a pre-built HTPC, need a small computer for your bedroom? Get an X, it does PC gaming on the cheap without the hassles of busting your knuckles in a mini-ATX case or dealing with the kludge that is Steam Big Picture.

No different than buying a laptop form factor so as not to have a 50 pound iron piece of shit on your desk.

Console gaming essentially pays for itself just on your electricity bill, that $250 electric bill goes down to $150, add that up over a few years.

See, this is how adults think. Your welcome.

Pretty soon your water cooled PC will be trading blows with a watch or a smart TV.

Yeah, that's what the PC needs. More corporate goons rallying around games like Crackdown 3 because they're so starved for content, that anything tastes good. And what do you mean Microsoft doesn't market to PC? They've been bending over backwards to to push Game Pass on PC and surrendered their games to Steam. LOL! That's a humbling right there. And guess what? We're not paying them to play online either. Oops!

And you're actually comparing an X to a PC? Oh man. Let me ask you some questions.

  • Can you swap out any of the parts in your X for better ones?
  • Can you run any program you want on the X?
  • Can you mod all of the games? Not just that selective crap that MS thinks is good PR, I mean true customization.
  • Can you use any control option you want?
  • Can you even use VR with Xbox One X?

Come on, bruh. You're trying way too hard to make this closed gaming box that no one will touch in a year relevant with this BS equivalence. Hell, the only way you can even play old games on it is if MS isn't feeling too lazy to emulate them. Which just like clockwork, they stopped doing because they're gearing up for Scarlett now.

If my current PC will be trading blows with a watch, your X will be trading blows with a toaster.

What does everybody else have to do with it? There's more gamers that have capable gaming PCs then there are Xbox One X owners. Gaming doesn't surround itself with that niche ass console.

I own a condo apartment. Regardless, what you stated implies that utilizing consoles as opposed to PC will reduce a hydro bill by $100. That's very much not the case.

And you're actually comparing an X to a PC? Oh man. Let me ask you some questions.

  • Can you swap out any of the parts in your X for better ones?
  • Can you run any program you want on the X?
  • Can you mod all of the games? Not just that selective crap that MS thinks is good PR, I mean true customization.
  • Can you use any control option you want?
  • Can you even use VR with Xbox One X?

Come on, bruh. You're trying way too hard to make this closed gaming box that no one will touch in a year relevant with this BS equivalence. Hell, the only way you can even play old games on it is if MS isn't feeling too lazy to emulate them. Which just like clockwork, they stopped doing because they're gearing up for Scarlett now.

If my current PC will be trading blows with a watch, your X will be trading blows with a toaster.

Yes exactly, at least they try to market Crackdown 3! At least they bother to hire Keeanu Reeves or whoever to try to peddle the product!

When is the last time PC Gaming had Usher gyrating his hips?

And just the fact that you're on system wars being a PC Gaming cheerleader PROVES that PC Gamers are just wannabe console gamers longing for a hype train but don't have one of their own.

So yeah, of course an X is just a locked down PC, no one pretends it isn't, it's not meant to be a general-use computer (altho it has alot of "computeresque" stuff on it like Smartglass and you can cast your PC games to it over wifi like Nvidia Shield.) What mods you can install depend on the developers, just like on PC, it's generally a much more "casual" platform.

PS - Online servers cost money, just because YOU aren't paying for your BF4 server doesn't mean SOMEone isn't paying for it, they're just paying for it on your behalf, also the Xbox online ecosystem shits all over the PC online ecosystem. You're running across empty barren MMO's, meanwhile on Xbox people are in party chat, they're pretty much connected full time playing with their friends. (Friends, you know, the thing PC Gamers don't have because they're busy tweaking their graphics card in their dungeon.)

@ZombieKiller7: Are you saying that PC gaming can add up to around $100 to your electricity bill? My PC stays on pretty much the entire time i'm at home, and my bill is between $60 and $75 per month.

What do you have in your house, just a fridge and a PC?

I haven't had a $60 electric bill since 1979.

I own a condo apartment. Regardless, what you stated implies that utilizing consoles as opposed to PC will reduce a hydro bill by $100. That's very much not the case.

See your post here:

Console gaming essentially pays for itself just on your electricity bill, that $250 electric bill goes down to $150, add that up over a few years.

I'm guessing you live somewhere that electric is heavily subsidized.

Where I am, saving electric is a thing, I dunno if it's gonna be $100/mo, but certainly double or triple the juice is a conservative estimate.
