Will Destiny unfold in sub-1080p on the Xbox One?

It appears that the constant spree of bad news associated with the Xbox One simply won’t come to a halt. The recent news of Call of Duty: Ghosts and Battlefield 4 both operating at a native resolution of 720p on the console has come as a disappointment to many next-gen enthusiasts. Developers of multiplatform titles are currently experiencing difficulty in maintaining parity between the next-gen console versions of their games. (Bungie, Destiny, Xbox One)

wow another site with an anonymous source, where are n4g moderators now

Yeah, this shouldn't even be an article. Some guy saying it's "evident to him". Who the heck cares? If it's confirmed to be sub 1080p, then fine that's news worthy. This? Nah.

Speculating that it could be is okay, considering some other games are already running lower than 1080p. Yet even the anonymous tester said he wasn't an expert on the matter.

Either way, I'll probably be picking this up on PS4. Considering most of my friends will have one. Hope the game turns out great regardless!

Although i do agree with you guys that this isn't news, it isn't labelled as such either, its been labelled as a rumour and i guess we should treat as such until confirmed otherwise. No one is saying this is fact.

1080p or not, this game looks awesome. Bungie + bad game is a combo that doesn't exist in my opinion.

rumor blogs should not be listed on N4G at all, unless they come from reputable agencies, IGN, Gamespot, etc. Even then they should be taken as a grain of salt.

Anyone can make a blog with wordpress or weebly, or whatever, and start a rumor, post it on N4G.

When you type n4g into google it says "gaming news and rumours", its perfectly ok to publish rumours alongside news articles here. I don't know why people have such a problem understanding this.
amiga-man  +   829d ago
Why would anyone dismiss this? rumour or not, reputable source or not the fact Cod runs at 720p on the xbox points very much to Destiny doing the same since it will be trying to do a lot more.

If I were a betting man I would have bet on it being 720p on the one, even without this rumour.

If Titan Fall wich is said to be xbone greatest game run at 720p then no surprise Destiny will be the same.
vigilante_man  +   829d ago
Here's my truth:

With BF4, COD and other games showing more grunt for the PS4 - all multi-platform games will have to follow suit in the short term.

We know PS4 has more raw power and is easier to develop for. We suspect it may always have more power than XB1 due to its GPU and unified GDDR5 - time will tell.

If games such as Destiny try to enforce parity they will be called out and lose sales on the PS4 because other developers have done what we all thought they would not do - that is use each console to its current infancy maximum performance.

I have a sneaking suspicion that all, if not most multi-platform games will get better performance/res/fps for PS4. The trick for MS is to create great games for XB1 that look amazing and not to upscale everything that looks iffy compared to PS4.

So let's all thank the integrity of developers for not gimping PS4 performance for parity sake.

Anonymous source should = opinion piece. I kinda agree that many games will likely end up with 720p on Xbox 720. It will look the same graphically. That is what developers see that counts. As they didn't have to kick the graphics down for either platform.
GarrusVakarian  +   829d ago
Resolution is a part of the graphics though. If a rock in the distance is in 1080p, it will be alot more visible and detailed than a rock at 720p at the same distance, the same way a 1080p texture will look more detailed than the same texture at 720p. Just saying. I think you might mean graphical effects, like lighting and physics that would stay the same and not be effected from a drop in resolution.

"It will look the same graphically." - Really? Why does 1080p exist then? Does 4k look the same graphically?
Why bother going over 540p if it all "look(s) the same graphically"

The truth is that resolution is an important element in graphical fidelity.

It's funny how just a month or so ago there were swarms of Xbox fans claiming XB1 was superior to PS4 because it had more launch titles releasing at 1080p. Now that some XB1 titles have been downgraded and the truth about multiplatform titles is out, suddenly resolution is completely irrelevant.
DeadlyFire  +   828d ago
I am talking about textures, models, and all. Should be about the same visually between the PS4/XB1 versions. PS4 version runs better and has no problem with 1080p. The Xb1 version runs not as great at same res. So they shrank it all. It won't look as good upscaled. Overall though if you change your resolution around in any PC game you can see the differences sure, but the world still is the same. The wall textures, and models, and game do not change as the resolution changes.

No, this is a website that has ALOT of positive Sony news....just like any gaming website at this moment in time. That doesn't make a website "hive minded" it just reflects what the industry is saying right now. If the tables were turned and the X1 had the majority of positive news, would this website be a MS hivemind? Of course it wouldn't. Sony having lots of positive news is due to the way they conduct business which the majority of gamers prefer to the way MS are conducting business lately.

Positive news = positive reactions from gamers. Simple as that.

Actually, N4G USED to be a pro MS website before the 360 launched...why? Same reasons why it is now a pro Sony website...positive news.

720p or 1080p what ever it is, if it's a multyplayer game I'm getting it for the box. Sony for its exclusives . I do agree that PS4 seems more powerful and that will make great looking games. If MS drops the ball with Xbox Live then I'll just buy their exclusives and I'll play online on the PS4 only. This 720p vs 1080p means nothing to me when it comes to online game. I think the service us more important.

It's hard to fathom that some folks seem ready and willing to spend 500 dollars on hardware that wheezes and coughs attempting to reach 1080p. 720p is not next gen, sorry. Not even close. Like lambs to the slaughter some of you are.
iamnsuperman  +   829d ago
Well it is not beyond the realm of possibilities since recent games like Battlefield and COD are 720p. The only game (so far confirmed) to be 1080p is Forza (which isn't a surprise being an exclusive and a game by a Microsoft studio)

Well, it's another anonymous source, but it's not impossible. If the XBO can't run even run COD at 900p let alone 1080p, Destiny won't be different. Destiny is a more demanding game.

Despite all of that, I'm going to wait until someone credible like CBOAT says something about this, before jumping to conclusions. I do believe that it will be the case though.

@smoothop, are you sure about that? Or is it because he was right about all those games on the XBO running at a sub-1080p resolution? When someone gets things right time after time, it's not luck. But like I said, I'm just gonna wait on this.

Facepalm. There was A report of a PS4 with a red light and a warning message on screen saying it was getting too hot...because it was in a glass/plastic case. The console was restarted and taken out and it worked fine after that. Misinformation and hyperbole much?

Comparing the resolution of one game to another is pretty pointless when different people were working on them. It all comes down to how the developers utilise the hardware. Forza 5 and NBA2k are both native 1080p on X1 so it's possible that Destiny could be as well.

'Comparing the resolution of one game to another is pretty pointless when different people were working on them.'
And then you say:
'Forza 5 and NBA2k are both native 1080p on X1 so it's possible that Destiny could be as well.'
Contradiction much?

Forza 5 is a racing game and NBA2k is a sports game. They're not what you'd call demanding. Destiny is on a whole other level.
jcnba28  +   829d ago
How was my comment contradicting? I said those two games run at 1080p and were developed by two different developers. That's my point it all comes down to the developers and how they use the hardware. You don't think Forza is graphically demanding game? I beg to differ.

I don't care about 1080p; as with most people who have been gamming long enough. I just want to play some great games with great art work. The last generation was mostly same type of art direction. 1080p isn't as important to how a game looks as much as art direction. just play some xbl live games or some psn games and you would see this. It's more about art direction and control and fun factor and its been this way since the beginning of gamming.

I think that the game will be 1080p, I know that most of the launch games on the Xbox One are only native 720p but remember developers who are used to developing on the Xbox 360 it will be harder to develop for the Xbox One due to the Xbox One having a different architecture than the Xbox 360. because the Xbox 360 had a PPC architecture and the Xbox One is a x86-64 architecture it is a big leap for developers to get use to
Software_Lover  +   829d ago
It's not a big leap, Devs have been coding on X86 forever (PC). The thing that Microsoft screwed up on is sitting on their balls while Sony made a fool of them, and trying to use ESram.

ruefrak  +   829d ago
Back to the question of whether Destiny will be 1080 on the Xbox, my guess is no.
From everything I've read about these consoles, it seems like the RAM situation in the Xbox is going to hold it back. Large, open world games have too many hi-def assets for the Xbox ram to load quickly enough. It's not going to be able to do 1080p at 60fps so it will be scaled back to either 720p at 60fps or 1080p at 30fps. Since in a shooter like this frame rate is king, my guess is the resolution will take a hit.
I'm also wondering what the resolution will be on the PS4 since this game is designed as being an online multiplayer game. Will they be able to make it at 1080p or will they need to tone it down to make it work smoothly?

KNWS  +   829d ago
I don't think many people get why the resolutions are lower on xb1 than the PS4, at this time!

The PS4 has unified memory the xb1 doesn't. Cod Ghosts and Battlefield 4 have been in development for a couple of years, their PS3 and X BOX 360 games.

Third party developers only got their hands on devs kits about five to six months ago. When they uploaded Cod and Battlefield 4 on the xb1 and PS4 platforms.

The PS4 resolutions were better due to the unified memory been something they knew how to work with.

The ESRAM is taking longer.

Ask yourself why are Forza and Halo running at 1080p and 60 frames?

Reason their first party exclusives and they've had more time with the hardware.

If you still think Microsoft will be running at 720p in a year from now. You honestly don't understand anything
ruefrak  +   829d ago
Forza and the other games coming out at 1080p/60fps are games in which all the hd assets can be loaded into the memory because they have a static boundary. In games like Destiny, Titanfall, Battlefield, CoD, the size of the hd assets that need to be loaded in and out of memory are too great for the xbox one to keep up with. As the tools get better for working with esram, things may improve but it's also possible it won't.
Ryse is an xbox exclusive and they couldn't hit 1080/60. In fact, they had to downgrade it to 900p because they couldn't hit it (and it's at 30fps).

KNWS  +   829d ago
Sorry that's inaccurate. Halo is more graphically challenging than Cod, but its managing and running at 1080p and 60 frames. Therefore XB1 will hit that resolution on most games by the end of next year.

Third party developers its obvious haven't had the time to optimise for XB1 due to the hardware. Its not broken, it just takes time, to figure how best to work with Esram.

From 900p to 1080p is not a giant leap. Crytek's Ryse game graphically looks superior to Cod and Battlefield 4 and it got it working at 900p

So logic suggests its only a development problem than a hardware issue. I think Crytek could have released Ryse at 1080p but they didn't want to tone down the graphics.

The gaming industry not fans of PS4 or XB1 all say Ryse looks the best looking game on console right now. So is 900p really that bad?

Just to add the single player of Killzone shadow is running at 30 frames. I don't think its an issue!

If they can get Halo running at 1080/60fps that will be great. But at the same time, I'm not going to hold my breath for it to happen. We don't know how graphically demanding Halo will be since there has been very little information released about it.
I've learned enough to know that what is announced a year out versus what is delivered tend to be very different.
