Xbox boss Phil Spencer has said that he isn’t sure if 8K resolution will ever be standard for video games, calling it “aspirational technology.” From a report: Talking to Wired, Spencer said,” I think 8K is aspirational technology.

I think we’re years away from 8K being — if it ever is — standard in video games.” Spencer’s comments come despite the Xbox Series X being able to support 8K output. However, while it may technically be able to push video at a resolution of 7680 x 4320, there are more factors to consider, chiefly being if anyone even has an 8K television or monitor to view such visuals on.
