The battle between Xbox and PS4, Microsoft and Sony, Fortnite and PUBG (scrap the last one) has taken a massive turn in Xbox's favour, after they announced Dolby Vision would be coming to their devices.
The 4K-ready consoles
will let Netflix bingers enjoy whatever they fancy in
high-dynamic-range format, before it gets rolled out to other
Console-wise, the new feature will be coming exclusively to the Xbox One S and Xbox One X devices, but Apple TV and Google's Chromecast Ultra also boast the same high quality visuals.
The System Update 1810 is being tested by people who signed up to Xbox Insiders, but it will be released for everyone else in the very near future.
The XB1 currently
supports HDR10 but this new Dolby tech is considered far, far
superior, so it's no wonder Microsoft have decided to take the jump.
The Verge said: "Dolby Vision adjusts the brightness and color of scenes with metadata, and supports up to a 12-bit color depth and higher peak brightness targets than HDR10."
Dolby Atmos audio is actually already in Xbox games, but whether we'll see the visual side follow in its footsteps is yet to be unseen.
This is currently just for the use of Netflix, and maybe Blu-Ray in the future, so unless you use the app on your console you probably won't benefit.
