Just picked up Doom and Doom II on Switch. Gonna wait to see reviews in Doom 3 for Switch as one of the pics on the eshop shows an imp demon being a little too blocky.

Curious if Doom 3 is the 360 version at 4k.
I just bought the PS4 version and it is definitely above 1080p and 60fps. I'd guess the PS4 version is around 1440p. I wouldn't be surprised if the X1X is at 4K.

The PS4 versions seems to be a stright up port of the PC version of the BFG edition. That's not a bad thing. No reason to believe the X1 version won't be the same.
