While we had known about the 4K DVR capabilities of the Xbox One X for some time, we have now learned it’s better than anticipated.

When asked about these details, Mike Ybarra kept it very simple:

This is very significant news for content creators. Very few gaming videos support 4K today but even fewer support HDR.
