As you might expect, the last few weeks have been packed with news about the next generation consoles from Microsoft and Sony, with release dates and prices for some of the models already known. Now, confirmation has come that the Xbox Series X will have a very interesting new technology that PlayStation 5 fans can only dream of.
Through a publication on Twitter and on its official website, Dolby confirmed that the Xbox Series X and Series S consoles will be the first to support the new Dolby Vision technology (which is expected to be implemented in early 2021). In addition, they also confirmed support for Dolby Atmos, which will be available since its launch.
Dolby Vision will elevate the gaming experience on the Xbox Series X
On the official page, some of the details of this new technology were revealed, which will apparently take the image quality of the games on the new Xbox consoles to a new level. According to Dolby, its new technology offers up to 40x more brightness, deeper blacks (up to 10x) for perfect contrast.
The company also points out that this technology will put an end to the need to use sliders of brightness adjustment, as it will adapt the image automatically while you are playing. However, this feature will only be available on televisions / monitors that support the technology.
Sony rejected Dolby technologies for PS5
In the revelation made by Dolby on its official page, everything indicates that PlayStation fans can only dream of this new technology. In fact, this is not a surprising revelation, as the PS5 will not arrive with support for Dolby Atmos.
Instead, the company decided to develop its own technology – “Tempest” 3D – most likely to have greater control over the final product and also not to depend on third parties to guarantee the quality of the experience of using your console. In addition, they also end up saving money, not needing to pay licensing to use the technologies.
However, PS5 fans will be limited to HDR10 technology with regard to the image quality of the games, since in addition to not wanting to bet on Dolby technology, Sony’s COO also confirmed that they would not bet on Samsung’s HDR10 + technology.
