So yesterday I set up my XB1X.

The last time I tried a console (and it was just that) was many years ago. 10, to be exact.

I had a mate who wanted my Wii (that I had never unboxed or played) and he offered a swap for a white 360. I said OK, mostly to help his kids who had broken their Wii. I ordered Fallout 3 for it and thought "No more slow running, glitchy crashing games !".

Dear god, it was awful. See, by then Bethesda had launched the HD 1080P pack and it was much better than the base game. Thing is? the 360 couldn't even match the base game. It was a terrible, poor rendering of what was supposed to be FO3. Worse still if you had more than two enemies on screen at once it would all grind to a stuttering halt.

Two days later I sold it, took the loss and forgot about it pretty much, vowing never to do so again.

Fast forward on to the 1x. Last night (after about three hours of updating updates of updates) I finally got to play FO4 at closing in on 4k. Amazing. Absolutely amazing. I may even be as bold to say as it looks easily as good as FO4 on PC maxed out at 1440p. I just could not get over how smooth it was and how it looked like it was running AA as well !

Not even really noticed the 30 FPS thing yet. I kinda went in thinking "I'm gonna notice, I'm gonna notice" but I really haven't.

Then at the press of a button and then another I was watching Netflix at 4k. Then a buddy messaged me (my first friend on XBL) and I had a quick chat with him.

God, it's good. And it's so very easy.

And comfort levels? omg. lol, I could get used to that !

Very happy. Far more happy than I thought I was going to be.

Fallout 4 on XB1X uses dynamic resolution really well which will account for its smoothness, It goes down to 3264x2160 to maintain 30FPS in hectic scenes and goes back up to 3840x2160 when the scene isn't so hectic, It also uses TAA quite nicely, One of my favourite AA methods and forces 16xAF for better texture detail/clarity.

Yeah, I kinda figured it *must* be using some sort of AA. There is just no way it could look that good otherwise. I really just can't believe how good it is. I would never bother building a entry-mid level PC now. Not unless I was chasing frames for competitive gameplay (which I totally don't do).

Other things to note. "Wow, it's so small". And. "Wow, bugger me it's really heavy !".

LOL you look inside and it's like 90% cooling.

Only just found this out but apparently Independence Day was meant to be a direct sequel to Stargate.

The invasion in Independence Day happened due to killing the god Ra, The decision to scrap the sequel idea happened last minute so they had to change the look of the aliens to not be "godly" and human-esque like in Stargate, Completely remove all ancient Egyptian symbols and designs etc.... from the ships and even change the ships design but this is why the ships in Independence Day have the same sound and general design, Those curving lines underneath in what looks like obsidian etc... of the ships, Weapons and armour in the Stargate movie.

I can't remember which actor said it but he said the majority of people in charge in Hollywood are not well in the head and stop a lot of movies going through that would be amazing.
