The distinct difference being that all of the other formats can be accurately rendered by the Xbox into multichannel LPCM; Atmos and DTS:X cannot.

That's the problem with HDR in general. Many people understand the potential improvement of increased pixel resolution so they're willing to believe that 4x 1080p res would be a good thing. HDR is...

Wonder of wonders! It's been over 24 hours since I started it up and it just started up without my having to cold boot it. Hopefully it was a very temporary phenomena.

I'd be surprised if it were more than 2% but I thought that I'd be generous in my guesstimate :D. And of whatever small percentage, how large a subset will be connected to Atmos-capable AVRs with...

They stopped making 360s in April, but until they remove its XBL support completely I would expect them to continue to issue free GwG titles every month. 360 owners w/o Xbones pay just as much for...

I order things from the Gunsmith and never try them. I need to check out Antipodal Hindsight--pretty high impact for an Auto with one of the highest range stats for the type.

I'm surprised that the year 2 Hard Light has a 100 aim assistance stat; doesn't seem that precise in use. It is a fun little bullet hose, though :). I like the sound that it makes.

I've never seen that aim-assist stat anywhere else. It's not surprise that it's 90 for MIDA (vs 44 for the Tuonela and 39 for the Cocytus); the thing almost aims itself.

HDCP 2.0 is only required for a 60Hz 4K signal; there's something else that it doesn't like about the set up. A pity, since the Vizio sets (P- and M-series, at least) have outstandingly low display...

If you mean what variety of HDR metadata games with HDR on Xbone S will have, that's probably right.

Just curious--why is that superior?

I never record anything, but Ryse did it automatically and frequently. I don't know what triggered it, but I had a big pile of them (probably still there).

Yes, they will work with the 2014 P-series. (I'm fairly certain that people in this thread have reported using them). You'll just get higher definition video with no HDR effect.
