PSN Store Claims Battlefield 4 is 1080p on PS4

"EA DICE never officially confirmed the resolution of the next generation console versions of Battlefield 4, and admitted that demos shown at event ran at sub-1080p resolutions on both PS4 and Xbox One.

Today, something very interesting surfaced. The description of the game on the PSN/Sony Entertainment Network claims twice that the video output is 1080p." (Battlefield 4, PS4)

PS4 seems poised to become the console standard for 1080p, we shall see in 22 days 15 hours 10 min and counting.

Yea, pretty much any HDTV purchased within the last 3-4 years probably has 1080p and defiantly can do 60fps, even cheapos.

HDTVs have been able to produce 60fps since they have been for sale. Hell even a decent amount of old CRT TVs could do 60fps.

I think your getting this launch mixed with the 360/ps3 launch. These systems shouldn't require you to get a new TV, they just fill in everything your current TV can do.

That's NOT a bad thing.

They don't have a choice really. If I remember correctly, the PS4 will only function with a HDTV.

@KillrateOmega: that includes 720p TVs as well.

Every game on the ps4 better be 1080p native. 720p was so last gen.

Got one, I think more people will be pissed, when their system, does not handle 1080p. (since you have to be rich to game xbone, I'm sure they have 1080p tv's too.)

Its pretty much the norm nowadays. Sure, there are a few unlucky souls out there. but overall not an issue at all. 1080p should be standard now, especially for a supposed next gen console.
dmitrijs88  +   260d ago
Not necessarily, can order one by internet.
gaffyh  +   260d ago
@Killrate - Well it only has a HDMI out port, I'm sure that there is a converter out there somewhere and someone could probably get PS4 working on a crappy old TV set. Unlikely that anyone will actually do it, but it's probably possible.
NarooN  +   259d ago
If someone can afford a PS4, they can afford a decent HDTV. HDTV's used to be crazy expensive, I won't even mention when they first hit the scene decades ago (but were pointless since virtually no content was created for the resolutions) but even in the early-to-mid 00's they were super-expensive. Today you can find great sets for dirt-cheat. I upgrade the 26" in my bedroom to a 32" for only $208.

So I don't think it's a problem, at least not a realistic one. There are some really old HDTV's out there that only had component support, with no HDMI, but the odds of someone keeping a set like that around for such a long time...
ohiostatesman  +   259d ago
Too bad its not true. Dice already confirmed BF4 runs less than 1080P on next gen consoles.
Erudito87  +   259d ago
yeah more or less everyone has a 1080p tv they are very cheap atm. Even if you didnt the system will run at whatever your maximum your tv supports.
Abriael  +   260d ago
I'd still wait for an official confirmation, as it may very well be a mistake. Repeated twice on the same screen... not very likely, but the possibility is there.
s8anicslayer  +   260d ago
Indeed but this coupled with the IGN claim about Ghosts 1080p seems like there is some truth to these claims.
nukeitall  +   260d ago
This is likely a mistake, after all BF devs has already said otherwise from what I remember.
Abriael  +   260d ago
@nukeitall: they said the final resolution still wasn't decided.
us_army  +   260d ago

EA may not make an official public announcement with such information as it could hinder other partnerships, they may have officially told Sony, but no one else until the game itself becomes public.
Legacy212  +   260d ago
Look at the back of any 360 game or ps3 game and it says 1080p -_- how is this confirmation fo4 native 1080
sigfredod  +   260d ago
also could be upscaled, so yes better to wait official statement
SilentNegotiator  +   260d ago
Until we get official confirmation of "native 1080p", it means nothing for the game to "be 1080p"
Destrania  +   260d ago
PS4 is the next-gen platinum standard. Anything else is just compromise.
Tsar4ever  +   260d ago
No, it means it either 720p or 900p and UPSCALED to run on 1080p signal and not 1080p native.
Ju  +   259d ago
...or 1080 native. Basically it is no confirmation in any form or way.
MELMAN26  +   260d ago
Its because everything will be upscaled to 1080p anyway.
dmitrijs88  +   260d ago
So can I say for sure, that after this confirmation, all games on PS4 run on native 1080p?
MELMAN26  +   260d ago
No, not all will be native 1080p. Upscaled and native are two different things.
colonel179  +   259d ago
Let's just wait. Microsoft has been bragging about 1080p for a while when they just upscale it. Let's see first if it is going to be native 1080p. The PS4 might be very capable, but it's a launch game. Usually launch games are remembered as nothing special, specially technically.
pedrof93  +   260d ago
If PS4 is more powerfull why is people complaining about the lower resolution on Xbox ?

I don't get it.

I knew it was likely to be 1080p on PS4 considering how powerful and easy to develop for it is, and the fact that every other game on it is 1080p as well. I knew DICE would be able to figure it out. Can't wait for launch day!

I'm pretty sure WatchDogs and DriveClub would not have been delayed if it were so easy to develop for.

This wouldn't have been so bad if they hadn't already allowed tons of people to pre-order PS4's with those games bundled.

At least it's not Obamacare. lol. talk about a disaster.
dantesparda  +   259d ago
Your opinions are a disaster
mxrider2199  +   259d ago
being easy to develop for doest not mean your game will be finished the way you want it to be... they want their games to be perfect on release that is why they were delayed not because of the difficulty of the hardware

theXtReMe1  +   260d ago
I have no doubt this game is going to run in 1080P. I'm sure with pressure from Sony and pressure from consumers, they've done everything they can to get the game running at a native 1080p resolution.

That's not to say the entire game may be running 1080P. I'm guessing single player is definitely going to run a 1080P, Multiplayer may be what suffers and runs at a sub 1080 resolution because of the 64 players on the screen at once. Though, don't quote me. I'm just spit balling. Though, they have been working on it long enough that they may have been able to get the 900p to 1080p by just toning something down in multiplayer.

Time will tell, but I hope this is true. Especially for the single player side. I'm not much of a multiplayer gamer, but want single player to be all it can be.
boeso  +   260d ago
I've never seen a different res for single vs multiplayer on the same game. Any examples? (not being pedantic)
Sephiroushin  +   260d ago
I have never seen it as well mus of the time they just use different FPS but who knows everything is possible! ... Killzone: Shadowfall, SP run at 30FPS while Multiplayer run at 60 FPS but 1080p hmmm I dont think different res wouldn't be cool ...

they could do other things to take advantage of power. A man remembers on PC games there are far more things to adjust than resolution. There's anti-aliasing, shadow detail, obviously it could have a more stable FPS trying to do the same things as Xbox, a man could look on some but he has names to offer.

creatchee  +   260d ago
Making a 1080p monitor a requirement is foolish on EA's part if this is true. A lot of people have older 1080i or 720p TV's. Hell, they still sell TV's that are 720p or 1080i max. Assuming that everyone has a 1080p TV will lead to angry returns and lower sales.

Edit: nevermind - reread it, and it says that a 1080p monitor is required for 1080p output AKA DUH!!

BadlyPackedKeebab  +   260d ago
It will scale to whatever you set the output of your ps4 to be. if you only have 720 you set it to 720. Most TVs that have HD ready are 720 but will downscale a 1080 signal. So you can either downscale it in the ps4 or output 1080 to the tv and have that do it.
Jaqen_Hghar  +   260d ago
really? A user does know that 720p games can be played on standard def TVs right? Also a man just bought a 32 inch 1080p LED from Samsung a month ago and it was $330 they're dirt cheap. Why would anyone still be buying 720p when the difference is negligible in price?
Volkama  +   260d ago
Is it not quite strange that the PS4 can't scale down to 720p?

720p isn't really an important output option these days, but have been hoping both consoles do some decent scaling to 4k as that will become relevant in a few years. Maybe it does up better than down.
solidboss07  +   260d ago
I have no doubt that the PS4 could run this at 1080p@60hz. The question is more towards will Dice or whoever do the Battlefield games invest enough time and effort to achieve it.
It certainly would give bragging rights to PlayStation, if the XBox version is not full HD.
#12 (Edited 260d ago ) | Agree(9) | Disagree(1) | Report | Reply
Jaqen_Hghar  +   260d ago
Playstation fans would love them for it and BF4 has higher preorders on PS4 than X1 (according to VGChartz). Not to mention a man thinks MOST Xbox users have resigned themselves to having the less powerful system so they SHOULD understand and not rage.
ruefrak  +   260d ago
But my question is does this mean the game won't run at 720 if you don't have a 1080p display? It just says that it requires a 1080p display in order to view a 1080p signal. That seems quite obvious. Just because it doesn't mention 720 doesn't mean it won't play that.
If you go to the PS Store now and look up "flOw" it will tell you that the PS3 version is in 1080p and the game plays fine in 720.
There is not standard for the game description or requirements in the store. Some games list their resolution, some do not. Some brag that the game is in 1080p even if it's also available at other resolutions (though those are specifically mentioned). Killzone Shadow Fall is 1080p but nowhere in the game description does it mention that. So I'll wager that BF4 can be played on any HD display.
Idba  +   260d ago
If you want to play in 1080p you need a monitor/tv that can handle 1080p. If you have a 720p tv however it will output the signal in 720p.

And ps4 onlys supports hdmi now i belive
ruefrak  +   260d ago
Exactly, but the way I'm reading this article, they're interpreting it as saying that it ONLY outputs in 1080p and therefore the only way you can play it is on a 1080p monitor, which I don't think is the case.
Idba  +   260d ago
Your reading it wrong. It states "Video in 1080p requires a 1080p monitor/tv."

The "1080P HD video output" means that it can ble played in 1080p But i understand that you got confused, also got confused the first time i read it
ruefrak  +   260d ago
I actually went back and re-read it only to discover that they changed the article. If you look in the address bar, it contains the title "psn-claims-battlefield-4 -is-1080p-on-ps4-requires-1080p -native-display/" but they have since cut out the whole section about "requiring a 1080p display." The original article had a paragraph in which they said that a 1080p display was required to play the game at all. So in the original, if you had a 720 display you were SOL. They have since gone back and corrected it... which is something you would normally see as an update to the article instead of deleting parts out of it.
Anyway, that's where my confusion came from.

neoandrew  +   259d ago
Look if you watch a real world show in sd it's still has better graphics than even crysis 3 on max, even if it is below 720p...

If you want to compare you need to compare movies, as they have real world graphics, does crysis 3 at 1080p maxed out look better than a 700x500 movie, nope.

There is plenty to do to make a game look like real world, to be indistinguishable from it, we will wait a while for it.

Video output will be 1080p, it's already been confirmed. The rendering can be done at 720p or 900p and will then be up scaled to 1080p. This does not mean the resolution is natively 1080p but it does mean that the information on the store is correct.

1080p video output does not mean 1080p native resolution.

I can't see them going from running it at 720p and then boosting all the way to 1080p. I could be wrong, but I doubt it.
