Here are some photos of Mortal Kombat X on Xbox One. Game mode turned on.

I think it looks fantastic.
looks excellent! try retaking the first picture at night time with no lights, that will look awesome with no reflections!

I am looking forward to seeing actual owner's reviews of this TV and their suggested calibrations. I am seriously interested in the 65" JS8500 and want to hear honest comments and experiences about it. And please no off topic discussions. There is another link for that.
