Xbox One will support both 3D and ultra high-resolution 4K, Microsoft has revealed. Larry Hryb, the director of programming for Xbox Live, confirmed the feature of the next-generation console during a Yahoo chat session.
“The video and interface portions [will work with next-gen TVs], absolutely,” Microsoft’s Yusuf Mehdi told Forbes. “Games developed for 1080p will run at 1080p, obviously.”
He added that Xbox One will support 4K for Blu-ray from launch, with the possibility of games and other content being developed at the emerging resolution in the future.
“There’s no hardware restriction there at all,” he said. 4K, also known as Ultra HD, is already available on some high-end television sets.
