HDR is the Star of the Show

Gaming in higher resolutions is great, and it is something we enjoy, but the biggest thing you'll love about the Xbox One X is the HDR support. HDR, or High Dynamic Range, delivers a wider color range that makes so much more of your game pop and come to life in stunning color. 

If you have a 4K Tv that support HDR some games will look photorealistic and in other games you will see more realistic and gritty environments. Playing Call of Duty: WWII , the flames from a Molotov cocktail or the flamethrower are incredibly vivid. 

While playing Forza 7 you'll see incredibly lighting effects as you drive through stunning racetracks as the sun sets and dynamic weather comes into your race. 

HDR while gaming is one of the biggest reasons to buy the Xbox One X, and one of the coolest features if you have a TV that supports it.
