Xbox developer Albert Penello said that it is still very early days for 4K and HDR gaming. He was frustrated that PS4 Slim and PS4 Pro models have no 4K Blu Ray Drive,

The only console that has a 4K Blu Ray drive is Xbox One S according to Gamespot. In general consoles, releasing a 4K and HDR gaming is a perfect timing. However, it is still so early. He wanted to inform everyone that they are just beginning on 4K and HDR.

That is the reason why game manufactures, developers as well as games themselves must get used to it first. They also need to figure out things about what customers want and how it works. In order to see the benefits of 4K and HDR gaming, developers must see the content on a full supported set before they will present it to the players.

What makes it harder for developers to show 4K and HDR is when they are not watching the thing itself in a 4K or HDR. They are also thinking for some possible ways to market it and to be truthful on the products. 

Sometimes, they are teased to deceive people to make a huge difference between 4K and HDR. But, they wanted to do things in an honest way. Developers should tell customers about its actual look and how it works.

Meanwhile, "Forza Horizon 3" and "Gears of War 4" are some of the games that will have HDR support on Xbox. Panello is a veteran developer of Xbox and he said that it is really a good time for the development of 4K and HDR according to a report in Game Transfers. However, the 4K and HDR facet of the gaming world might take a while to become the norm.
