Xbox One X and Xbox One S 1440p Support Coming Soon

Share

That debate rages on as Xbox One users accuse other players of using keyboard adapters to get an edge in the console gaming scene.

According to Xbox's Kevin Gammill, both the Xbox One X and Xbox One S will receive 1440p support in the new Xbox insider update.however the lesser Xbox One S will most likely support light applications such as streaming and UI in 1440p, whereas gaming will likely be supersampled. As reported by Windows Central, the Xbox One X targets 4K displays and, using supersampling tech, delivers some smooth visual upgrades on 1080p displays. Thankfully, the Xbox One X features supersampling which improves the graphical quality of games played in 1080p, but it's still not quite the same as playing in QHD.

That early preview ring Gammill refers to is, of course, the Xbox Insider program, which allows Xbox One owners early access to incoming system updates in exchange for their feedback. Today they are back in the news, as the word comes down that Microsoft Has No Plans To Block Keyboard And Mouse Support On Xbox One.

Though Microsoft hasn't announced any official support for keyboard and mouse on Xbox One just yet, there are still ways to make it happen. Microsoft did promise that 1440p support is coming, though it didn't give a specific release date. This is the first we have heard of Microsoft officially addressing keyboard and mouse support in a long while. Of course, that remains to be determined. "The team developed the Heutchy Method (after the engineer who created it) which leverages the power of Xbox One X to let the Xbox 360 emulator present the very best version of the game possible with the existing assets-all without touching the game code".
