Aaron Greenberg: You will see every game as 1080p

Microsoft's Aaron Grenberg downplays the importance of Native 1080p when a user raises his concerns in lieu of the recent reveal that Call of Duty: Ghosts runs at an upscaled 720p. (Microsoft, Xbox One)

Update Aaron reversed his position after being accused of lying: -

There is a big difference between native and upscaled. But if you sit far enough away from your TV the vast majority of people will never notice. Unless you are one of those eagle-eyed freaks of nature.
GribbleGrunger  +   165d ago | Well said
So you are going to pay $100 more for a console that does 720p because you can sit further away from the TV ... I'm going to buy the cheaper console that does 1080p and sit closer to the TV.

Think about what you are saying.

"so you had a 360 last gen? it was 200 dollars cheaper with higher res and fps!"

Really? So which game on the 360 ran 1080p at 60 fps like Wipeout HD did?

You do realize the PS3 had a 499 model at launch right? So basically for 100 dollars more you was getting a better deal. Bluray, Bigger HDD, wireless, HDMI, Free multiplayer, rechargeable controllers.

So lets boil it down this way.

360 = 399.00
Live = 49.99
Wireless adapter = 99.99
Battery packs = 19.99

Then later on they released a new revision with HDMI, so if you wanted that you had to buy a new system. So you're right the 360 was 200 dollars cheaper, roflmao....

There is a pretty obvious difference between both resolutions even at 10 feet. 1080p is over twice the pixel count of 720p.

blu ray did nothing for games unlike kinect and was 1-200 more. what ms added years later isnt even on the table.

the 20 gb ps3 was the same as 360 but 100 dollars more. ps3 also needed a hd long before 360. 20gb ps3 didnt even have a wifi solution!

as for live psn on ps3 still isnt on par and batterys plenty of solutions

you can have wipeout point still stands ps3 was weaker proven time and again and even by carmack. didnt stop people from buying it

Wait, I'm starting to understand what is going on here. The devs wanted these games to look better on the X1, so they made them lower resolution (knowing that doesn't matter anymore) and also made them darker. They are brilliant!

Cancelled my preorder for the one because of the bf4 resolution issue. Until Microsoft can prove the cloud will increase performance I will stay with ps4..
shadyiswin  +   165d ago
you never had a pre order sony fan boy,and this is the only site that says bf4 looks better on the ps4,oh the xbox's just has a brighter picture,that can be fixed with settings. The truth is everyone was expecting it to be night and day when it's not,this is all launch party title games that have most resources delegated to current gen. When the work cycle shifts to where the focus is next gen then you start to see better results,you are likely to see both bf4 and cod in 1080p on there next installment.

On a side not we have our xbox one display on in our store and what do you know,it is a show stopper,everyone stops and stares at it,im assuming it has to be the very time they have seen it in person,and the overall response is it is sexy,bit bulky but much smaller than people made it out to be. The sony crew has not showed up yet,they were suppose to 3 days ago. We have ghost for ps4 and xbox one,but the xbox one has a combo pack for $69.99 which is ghost for xbox 360 AND xbox one,very clever to do it that way.

Another side not,most customers had no idea it comes with kinect,once i tell them its standard it's almost a sigh of relief,they assumed the console was $499 without the kinect,so yeah it's nice to get a dose of reality after being on this site and being told by every article xbox sucks,its a failure,no one wants one,actually leave the computer and see people are excited. Very annoying to attach pictures here or i would but its something you see n person,shocked we got it on 11/1 abd gamestop doesnt even have them yet and its a 2 monitor set up,very nice.

This is tricky. I played most current gen games on the 360 because it's upscaler was great and my PS3 would only do 720p. I am glad the XBONE has an upscaler but that doesn't mean I want to settle for upscaled games when they can be native. I see what Greeneberg's saying and if you can only buy the XBONE you'll be fine but if you have a choice, native always sounds better to me, less work for the system to do.
shadyiswin  +   165d ago
it's call of duty bro. Its funny an issue when one game is 720p vs 1080p ,if both was 720p then its not a problem,but suddenly one game dictates the consoles resolution for the life cycle of the console,i think not,activision is lazy,did not want to code properly but wanted to use the 10% power reserve to run the game in 1080p microsoft did the right thing by saying no,or would you guys prefer an unstable game that looks the same but mentally you can tell yourself its 100x better cause its in native 1080p,if you had any idea how many americans think there tv programs are in 1080p......and thats not upscaled yet everyone thinks its full hd,so dont expect any complaints about the picture,lets wait till the comparison comes out and people will nit pick and find there are hardly any diffrences

And yet at the end of the day after all the storm of troll comments and making fun of X1. It will be hitting 1080P by next year.

3 games are already hitting 1080P on X1 already sooo its already on its way of doing so.

Trust me, we will all forget about it very, very soon. And move on to the next hurdle MS puts in front of themselves.

XboxFun  +   165d ago
It's pretty obvious that the X1 dev kits were sent out late and games that started production early didn't have the benefit or time to take advantage of the Xbox One.

There's nothing in Xbox One architecture that would prohibit native 1080p as we already have some games that are that resolution for the Xbox One.

I'll personally wait for the next tidbit the fanboys will jump on and blow up.

I think I agree with you but... however late the dev kits were, when you see a console running a game like COD on 720p, you want to go and bury it somewhere where nobody can find it. It's 2013!

And you know what, I am sure X1 can pull COD in 1080p, it just goes to show that this console is being rushed to the market and the people who are going to buy this are going to get the shortest stick even though they are paying a premium price for it. It's just extremely bad and selfish business ethics.

According to what I've read on sites like Eurogamer, in general 1080P is better than 720P upscaled to the same resolution.

You can't make up the missing pixels by upscaling.

What I said is just a general conclusion that's valid for all systems including PC.

ummm yah just like xbox 360 UPSCALED.
Truth is consoles are fixed hardware /specs in terms of performance. Overtime games will get more complex needing more juice.

We will not see many games native resolution 1080p as the console ages.

Have we not learned since from DVD vs Blu-ray.
I remember back in the days when Blu-ray was winning the HD format war, the xbox crowd would say DVD is all that is needed it can output upscaled 1080p.

There is a huge difference between Blu-ray 1080p vs 1080p upscaled on the most expensive DVD players.

Same goes on the Sony side, as a strong supporter of Gran Tursismo I know it is not native 1080p but there are so many PS fanboys who are convinced it is.

"Have we not learned since from DVD vs Blu-ray.

BLU RAY was not winning the format war necessarily, it actually came down to the acquisition of one major studio. Whoever acquired that studio, it was guaranteed that they would be the go to format. Simply because that major studio had the largest market share. HD DVD had exclusive support from Paramount Pictures, Dreamworks, Universal Studios.

it came down to which format would get Warner Bros exclusively. Once Warner Bros dropped HDDVD support in favor of Blu Ray, it was just one giant chain reaction. I remember reading tech sites explaining how Toshiba offered 400 million to Warner to remain exclusive. Then in the final hour Sony countered with 800 million plus. Not exact numbers, but it was something like that. I can't find exact sources, but you can find articles online explaining the format war.
Rageanitus  +   165d ago
Umm you will not do so well in business. You are either losing or winning nothing in between. It is a continuous fluctuation of ups and down.
The thing with the format war was HD-DVD was trying so hard to stand ground but at the same time NOT making ground. The final nail in the coffin was when WB dropped shipped because they couldnt take it anymore. It was after when there were true signs that HD-DVD could not make it the xbox crowd was supporting DD and also mentioning DVD upconverted is all that is needed.

HD DVD did not freaking stand a snowballs chance in hell, this is the truth..and its very simple logistic's..

Only one company made HD DVD optical drives that was only Toshiba! vs' 11 OF THE OTHER MAIN LARGE OPTICAL DRIVE PRODUCTION COMPANIES LIKE PLEXTOR, NEC, SONY ETC. and they were all in production of Blu-Ray only!

WB support could have stayed and supported both and extend the format war, or kill it early and choose not to loose more money by trying to keep a format alive with only one hardware company production of physical optical drives...

there was no way HD DVD was ever going to win over Blu-Ray, it was only going to be kept alive as long as Microsoft kept sinking money into a format that really was going no where, because when 11 of the largest Optical drive manuf. all chose Blu-Ray 2 years before even the very 1st HD DVD optical drive even hit production, while Blu-Ray as a format was already on retail shelves in Cart format 3 years prior to HD DVD launching its very 1st player. and Blu-ray was already a recording storage format at that. on retail chains in Asia.

the vote to evolve DVD for the next format was voted in 2002 by than the majority of optical drive companys all seen Blu-ray already work on the retail chain the very next year 2 years well before HD DVD was even in real demo form by TOSHIBA.

HD DVD HAD NO CHANCE its very simple as that

1 company Toshiba vs' every other optical drive company that all chose Blu-ray..Microsoft's money would have only extended the war, and caused more consumer confusion, which was Microsoft's goal, because BD-Java was chosen over Microsoft's HDi software thats why we had the format war to even start with.

if people think im not telling the truth, take a look!

look at the time line


February 19 -- Led by Sony, nine of the world's largest electronics companies unveil plans for Blu-ray Disc.

August 29 -- Toshiba and NEC propose to the DVD Forum the next-generation optical disc format that will become HD DVD.

October 1 -- Prototypes of both formats are unveiled at Japan's Ceatec exhibition. Sony, Panasonic, Sharp, Pioneer and JVC showed prototype Blu-ray Disc recorders while Toshiba showed a prototype under the name Advanced Optical Disc (AOD).




April 10 -- Sony puts on sale in Japan the world's first Blu-ray Disc recorder, the BDZ-S77. It's based on a 23G-byte cartridge version of the BD-RE disc and costs ¥450,000 (US$3,815 at the time). The machine and a later model from Panasonic lack support for prerecorded movies that will launch later and prove an expensive early step into next-generation video.

9 months later after blu-ray was already on the retail shelf


January 7 -- Toshiba unveils its first prototype HD DVD player at CES. The player includes backwards compatibility with DVD.

a prototype, not even ready for retail as a format! while Blu-Ray was already on store shelves.

Open your eyes and count the pixels! /s
Anyway what really bother me is, why am I spending more money for less power machine?

His comment is classic because some people will actually read it and say yea what is the big deal, it's 1080p like he said.

IF you look at some DX11.1 features you might see where he may be hinting at. Essentially DX11.1 has the ability to have an output of polyogons at something like 720p however the textures can still be native 1080p.

An example would be a triangle where rendered at 720p where the edges might be jaggy however the texture within the triangle would be 1080p and look nice a sharp. What they could use the upscaler for is essentially to smooth those edges and overall the final result would look almost exactly the same as 1080p however with possibly more fuzzy edges.

I'm not going to say it will look as nice a native 1080p but from what I've seen with software AA like FXAA and morphological AA I wouldn't be surprised if they have a pretty decent hardware upscaler.

Take a look at some of the DX11.1 videos from MS's Build conference you may find some of it quite interesting if your interested learning about game programming.

Sure I may sound like a MS fanboy but I just know a lot about there products because they give away a lot of there products free to college students. And right now I've just gotten into DX11.1 which is challenging at the beginning but it is a very powerful toolset.

No i do get what you are saying . Problem is some fanboys uses gross hyperboles and half truth , to make it sounds as if 720+some trade offs embellishment = the same games in native 1080p , and worst of all everytime .

In Cod's case there are no trade off thus far . It was mostly for stability purposes ... be it because rushed , or because of the Xb1's hardware .

So far out of the list of launch games constantly mentioned around only Ryse truly benefits from toning down the resolution , for more effects and most of all to improve stability .

But there is no way they'd "downgrade" it that way , if they actually had a choice , based on their current ressources and knowledge .

This isnt some immensely closed off new hardware and architecture like the emotion engine or the ps3 , where you were challenged , even against your will .

Both are familiar pc hardware with console OSes and SDKs ... the learning margin and curve while there , will be smaller this time around

The thing the xbone fans seem to forget is the whole major point is , the PS4 will be able to have all the bells and whistles AND the higher resolution, the PS4 doesnt need trade offs it can do it all but better, the xbone games may look good im sure they will but side by side the PS4 is the clear winner, thats all there is to it.
