Phil Spencer: We're Years Away From 8K Being Standard In Games

Various Xbox executives have been talking to WIRED in a new interview about the upcoming release of the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, including the head of Xbox himself, Phil Spencer.

Notably, Spencer talked a bit more about the Xbox Series X's ability to achieve a maximum of 8K resolution, explaining that while it's definitely possible, it's unlikely that we'll see it widely adopted.

“I think 8K is aspirational technology. The display capabilities of devices are not really there yet. I think we’re years away from 8K being—if it ever is—standard in video games.”

While 8K is unlikely to have a major impact on this generation, the Xbox Series X/S can also achieve 120 frames per-second in supported titles at up to 4K visuals, which Spencer reiterated is "absolutely there for people to use."

Well, assuming you've got a TV that can handle it, of course.

Are you hoping to see games adopt 8K resolution this gen, or aren't you bothered? Let us know below.
