The only Microsoft exclusive I wish was also on PS4... Looks amazing and so much fun!

The colors in these videos look a bit blurred. Looks like the chroma subsampling has been performed using a fast filter that leads to chroma shift. The chroma appears to be shifted 1 or 2 pixels to the right.

I had to capture my PC with a capture card, using something like 4:2:0, so chroma is a bit shifted :/

The 1440p video was recorded with Mirillis Action.

Yes, the 1440p video has properly aligned chroma. So it must be the capture card doing a fast and dirty chroma subsampling then.
I really only noticed this because i have watched so many videos by Don Joewon Song, that i know how the HUD should look like when it is encoded properly.

    Sdarts Also, those things happened in the X360 era, almost 10 years ago. I would at least try it today to see if things changed. FF15 and KH3 are on XB1, so clearly there's room. (0 minute ago)

    Sdarts It's not just Nier though, a lot of Japanese games just aren't on XB1. Like the Yakuza series by Sega. (1 minute ago)

    Sdarts them over the years. While Sony and Nintendo are Japanese companies and they foster those relationships. Then Microsoft cancelled Scalebound, a AAA JRPG. (2 minutes ago)

    KORNdog and while neir was on the 360. how did it sell on that platform compared to the PS3. if the split was something like 9:1 would you bother with xbox again if you were the dev? (4 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts But I also believe there's a resistance by many Japanese developers, because the Xbox never made it in Japan and also probably because Microsoft never made strides to build better relationships with (4 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Sdarts: when they had more options (see lost oddysey and blue dragon) they didn't buy them in high enough numbers to warrant sequels, which says to me it's the former. (5 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Games like Persona 5, Nier: Automata and Nioh should have been released on XB1. Nioh is a Dark Souls clone, the original Nier was on X360. And Persona 5 would sell well on XB1, since it's a great game (6 minutes ago)
