Thanks for the heads up Onlooker!

Man, this game just continues to impress. Incredible.

The new theme (Delta?) is not in the PC version yet, they're holding that until it's ready to release for all versions, plus I'm sure there are other aspects of the PC version that haven't been enabled yet, especially those relating to tournament and tour play.

I also own the XB1 version and I almost hate to admit this, but the thing I'm looking most forward to is how the 900p upgrade works out for that platform... (shhhhhh)

Yeah, we hope so. We've been disappointed about the way the game runs on the Xbox One so have been spending more and more time on squeezing everything we can out of the hardware and the engine

Is the status of a 900p upgrade still "highly likely" for the XB1 in the May update?

Just got the disc. Wow what a great game. I heard going into it the graphics were poor but I think they are great! Plays so sim it's incredible! Kudos to the developers.

You heard the graphics were poor? Who says that?

I've never said the graphics were "poor", but I have said they were grainy. I would expect them to look grainy after playing the game at 1080p on the other two platforms, and they do. Sadly though, the XB1 version also lags behind the PS4 version in frame rate, by a factor of between 10 to 15%, which weighs in heavily when the frame rates dip below 30 FPS.

On a good display of smaller size, the XB1 version probably looks better than what I'm seeing. I play it on a 60" LED display, which makes the low resolution look even grainier. It doesn't help that on some of the more desirable courses, I feel handicapped by a frame rate that's dipping well into the low 20s to the point that it's adversely affecting my swing.

Once we get the expected bump to 900p in the May update, I'm pretty sure you'll be able to get a better handle on what I'm taking about, hopefully in terms of resolution AND frame rate. It's been reported that HBS have been working with the new XB1 SDK and are improving its performance in terms of frame rate as well.
