Why is this news, who expected 1080p on PS360?

Hydrolex1400d ago

well I did.... in my dreams

SilentNegotiator1400d ago

No one with any real knowledge of 7th gen consoles.

Wenis1400d ago

I still have a 720p tv so It doesnt matter to me

Shuyin1400d ago

Same xD.
I need to get a new TV on a year or so to be equiped good for the upcoming gen.
My current TV is a pos, lol.

Cernunnos1400d ago

Meh.. Playing a lot of DayZ, ARMA 2 and ARMA 3 the last year has really proved to me that even 1080p is horrible and grainy. I will be getting a 1440p monitor soon.

sourav931400d ago

Pfft. You're so old fashioned. Why don't you get a 4K instead?

2pacalypsenow1400d ago (Edited 1400d ago )

lol 1080p grainy? ..what??

bumnut1400d ago

1080 does look poor quality after playing 1440, same as 720 looks poor after playing 1080.

Once you get used to the increased quality its hard to go back!

As for 4K, its too expensive at the moment.

DayZ Arma 2 Arma 3

Who the Hell thought this game would be in 1080p?

ATi_Elite1400d ago

Don't worry the PC version will be 1080p!!

r1sh121399d ago

yea theres nothing wrong with 720p.
Anyone know what sort of FPS it will be running at?
I am hoping 60 but I know its too much to ask for on the ps360

As long as it has a good frame rate i'll be happy

Prcko1400d ago (Edited 1400d ago )

30 fps with no drops

Enemy1400d ago (Edited 1400d ago )

Considering the scale and graphics, I'm shocked it's even doing 720p native on current gen. But hey, PS3 as lead platform has its perks.

FlameHawk1400d ago

What did you expect it to be 480p?

Enemy1400d ago

Pretty much, judging how bad huge multiplatform games like GTA must be compromised.

ginsunuva1400d ago

No, but sub-hd like cod and halo (~640)

wtopez1400d ago

Oh boy. Rockstar will soon fix that on PC though.

Prcko1400d ago

it's not big deal really
when you look from distance,especially from big tv screen, you don't see some huge difference

SmokeyMcBear1400d ago

well actually Rockstars release of GTA IV on PC was pretty bad. It needed months and months to patch, plus it won't release until at least 6 months after the console release. Your best bet for a good GTA game on PC is to wait a while after release until the modders clean it up and make it look magnificent.

pandehz1400d ago (Edited 1400d ago )

They got Max Payne 3 right on PC though.

Flawless performance with proper DX11 support and a whole lotta options.

Maybe they can do a good pc version or maybe im being too optimistic.

user74029311400d ago

as long as its jaw dropping cutting edge crystal clear 720p were good.

adorie1400d ago

Last of Us comes to mind.

MidnytRain1400d ago

The Last of Us had jaggies.

Cernunnos1400d ago

The Last of US is a masterpiece, and looks amazing to be running on such dated hardware, and yet it is the single biggest proof of how outdated they are. The low res and framerate really stands out in it, and you can really see how the devs have been fighting the hardware when making it.

dantesparda1400d ago

i dont think TLOU looks low res, it looks fine

adorie1400d ago (Edited 1400d ago )

There weren't many jaggies from what I seen.
I mainly saw problems with some textures, but not much there as well. The GPU in the PS3 isn't anything special. the split pool of ram is also a hinderance.
Naughty Dog did a remarkable job for what they had to work with.
This means EA needs to step up their game becauseI expect ND to come with graphical fidelity that

Lastly, it was a loose reference because it's the best looking game on consoles, currently. One of few 720p games that don't make my eyes explode. I'm used to 1080p with maxed out settings at frames higher than 40, on average. 60 in most cases.
