[TechSpot] Samsung to Microsoft: The Xbox Series X should support ultrawide monitors
Speaking to PCGamesN, Samsung said it is pushing Microsoft to enable ultrawide aspect ratios on its consoles, possibly starting with the Xbox Series X that launches this holiday season. “We’re pushing, we’re talking,” a Samsung rep told the publication.
With 21:9 and 32:9 monitors becoming more popular, an increasing number of games are supporting the ultrawide format. But while the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X support 4K resolutions and HDR, they’re limited to a 16:9 aspect ratio.
There are UW TVs on the market but the market never took off for them, which is sort of surprising considering how many movies are in near 21:9 aspect ratios.
If they ever became fairly adopted like their PC monitor counterparts I'd happily buy one but the support for them is little to none.
I use a UW at work and at home so a 21:9 TV would fit right in with me. lol
