Xbox One 1440p Support Coming "Very Soon" to Xbox One X and Xbox One S

For the longest time, there's been an interesting discussion about allowing the Xbox One console to utilize keyboard and mouse controls.

Supersampling, in short, is an excellent way to put the extra power granted by the Xbox One X to use even if you don't have a 4K display.

Three special Xbox One X consoles were revealed by Microsoft recently during the NBA's All Star Weekend events. "Instead of taking a lower resolution image and blowing up (creating a distortion) like upscaling's effect, supersampling takes a high-resolution image and scales it down to your television's native resolution-be it 720p or 1080p - to bring all the information that Xbox One X is pouring into its games and beaming to the screen", according to the Microsoft's experts. The weaker S model will also be getting 1440p support, but probably only for video playback. He said there have been numerous questions surrounding 1440p support, and that Xbox Insiders who are subscribed to the Fast ring will be "pleasantly surprised very soon". Kevin Gammill, the program manager for Microsoft's Xbox Platform Partner Group, let the cat out of the bag on Twitter. I'd certainly be interested in hooking a One X up to a 1440p Freesync monitor at some point and seeing how it impacts the experience.

If you still have the beta installed on your PS4 or Xbox One, then you'll just have to download a patch and you'll be good to go. In a struggle to survive and understand this new environment, players engage in both single player and connected co-op.

While the benefits of 4K are mostly reserved for those who actually have TVs that support it, a technology called supersampling still provides benefits for those who only have 1080p displays. It would seem, then, that Microsoft is planning to roll out 1440p support to Xbox Insiders shortly, with a wider launch to follow at an unspecified time after.

Per his tweet, 1440p support will not only come to the Xbox One X, but also the Xbox One S variant as well. We'll see soon enough, so stay tuned.
