Xbox-Certified 4K Projector Unveiled, But It'll Cost You Serious Money

Projector manufacturer ViewSonic has announced the release date and pricing details for its recently-unveiled Xbox 'X2-4K' projector - if you fancy splashing out on a really big screen to display your favourite Xbox titles.

The ViewSonic X2-4K Xbox Certified Gaming Projector launches this July in the US for $1600, and you can sign up for stock updates now from the ViewSonic website.

Of course, most projectors (any that support HDMI really) will work just fine with an Xbox console, but this one is certified for reasons. To be fair, ViewSonic says that "it went through 63 tests conducted by Team Xbox to ensure ultimate console compatibility", so, it sounds like Microsoft has had a large hand in getting the X2-4K certified for Xbox.

In terms of specs, the projector can do both 4K and 120Hz playback, but not at the same time. You have to choose between 1440p & 120Hz or 4K & 60Hz, just like using a 4K/120Hz TV that doesn't support HDMI 2.1. We'd have liked to see full 4K/120FPS support here but alas, you'll have to make the choice with the X2-4K. The projector also supports an 'Auto Low Latency Mode' to provide smooth gaming playback.

As you can see, the device is also sporting a neat Xbox-themed colour scheme with its green accents and whatnot - it does look pretty sleek! We don't really use projectors for gaming to be honest, but we've always been into the idea and this looks like a great way to get a cool Xbox/projector setup going at home.
