As an exclusive on their next-gen hardware, I would hope so!

The important thing is if it runs in 60fps

"We’re a huge, epic game that’s going to be running 1080P, 60fps on the next-gen console"

TXIDarkAvenger1900d ago

Well that wasn't a surprise.

Forza 4 ran at 60 fps @720 I believe.

First good news for XBOX One in awhile. I'm still pissed about all the other stuff, but Forza is always fun, and with 1080p and 60FPS, it would make it even better.

That's pretty impressive! Now that this has been announced I still think GT6 should've been a PS4 game but oh well ;)

Gaming is a hobby you guys should relax with all the politics if X1 policies are a big deal for you its really simple dont buy a X1, Forza is so much fun and Im going to enjoy Forza5 despite the politics.

looking at specs, I have little doubt Xbone can handle a 1080p game, however I do have to ask... "Is this native 1080p, or upscaled?".

GT5 claimed 1080p as well, but upscaled from a lower resolution between 720 and 1080p to pull that off. That said, the devs didn't try to hide that fact. Many games this generation were upscaled. the call of duty games didn't even run in HD natively, but were upscaled from a sub-HD resolution to 720p.

Good point frosty. 1080p is just the vertical resolution. GT5 ran 1280 x 1080 natively. You can claim anything is 1080p if that is what its vertical resolution is.

Be nice to see if it does actually run 1920 x 1080 but I have my suspicions it does not and the horizontal is upscaled. Even 1280 x 1080 like GT5 is a reasonable boost though over 1280 x 720. Virtually 50 percent more.

We'll probably have to wait until the thing is launched to see what it actually runs like. Especially after these rumours of downclocking the hardware etc. Digital foundry and Beyond3D to the rescue!

We may not have to wait for launch, any direct feed video is good enough for the pixel counters at b3d to be able to tell what the native resolution is, as long as it isn't a bullshot and is actual direct feed of the game being played.

Not that a few pixels in difference is going to make this any better or worse of a game, but for tech junkies like myself it's still interesting to see what the hardware can and cannot do.

Almost every racing game on current GEN runs 60 fps!!...........
So why not on next GEN
