Spencer regarding the 4K and the fps said,

we’re not dictating that that’s what developers do. They can make other decisions with resolution and framerate, and the Forza stuff we have shown was running at 60fps, 4K. You’ll have people who do that, and you’ll have people who’ll make decisions to do less than a native 4K frame buffer

About the target audience, he said,

For the console customer who wants the best version of the console games on their television, whether they have a 1080p or a 4K television
