And 30fps. I'd guess that even CoD Ghosts could run at 1080p/30fps on Xbox One but IW's highest priority always was a good framerate.

Enemy1840d ago

Considering the kind of game this is, it'd be shocking to see it running lower than 1080p.

Its funny devs need to state the resolution now.

The bigger resolution number is in front of the title is better. But the lower number everyone loses their pants.

The majority of people behave like that about resolution because people felt like Microsoft was attempting to cover up the truth, yet again. Had Microsoft just acknowledge the resolutions of CoD and BF4 people would not have been anywhere near as upset over the issue. Instead of Microsoft treating the resolution thing like a none issue and just being honest, they played word games with people who are clearly smart enough to read between the lines.

Look at Sony and the DLNA and mp3 issue. Sony came right out and said how it was, people naturally complained about this issues and now it looks like Sony is going to reverse their stance on this issue http://www.playstationlifes... It's amazing how much bad press you can save by just being direct with people.

"Party game on Xbone runs at native 1080p" - Big Wow!

What next Aaron Greenberg & Major Nelson that Pac-man Xbone edition runs at 1080p 60fps!!!

Mystogan1840d ago

How is that any different from the dozens of 1080p INDIE games on PS4?

Xsilver1840d ago

at 1080p O.O wahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
but seriously tho who thought this of all games wouldn't be 1080p-_-.

Dlacy13g1840d ago

I think there are many on N4G who are in the mindset that no game on the Xbox One will run at 1080p.

ZodTheRipper1840d ago

I don't think so. Most probably just think that the X! is not as powerful as the PS4. NIt would be stupid to believe that the X1 can't handle 1080p.

AngelicIceDiamond1840d ago

@XSilver who's gonna be concerned about the resolution? the kids who play this?

'How is your game son?"

"The game is fun but it would have been more fun it was running at 1080P."

Come on.

This resolution crap is getting old really fast.

Xsilver1840d ago (Edited 1840d ago )

bro you know im just simply pointing that in terms of demanding this game clearly isn't so i didn't really expect to see news about it running in 1080p tbh

christocolus1840d ago (Edited 1840d ago )

its really geting crazy.....resolution or fps wont change the core experience of any game.

christocolus1840d ago


didnt the developer of ragtag(an indie game) say he was also trying to achieve 1080p on the ps4 but wouldnt commit to it yet? why do you guys downplay everything xbx one? you aint a dev, you have no idea what the devs do so why downplay their efforts?if it was announced 720p you guys would still make a big deal out of need to give it a rest.

Xsilver1840d ago

smfh its a Kinect game i just found it funny that they needed to confirm that this game out of all games runs at 1080p -_- take it how you wanna take it bro i could care less.

Dragonborn3121840d ago

People who do not think that the Xbox One can achieve 1080p and 60fps seem to completely forget about Forza 5, a day one title that achieves both of those things.

Godchild10201840d ago (Edited 1840d ago )

It's also from a developer that has had Xbox One dev kits longer than other developers. And they had to make sacrifices.

Not saying the Xbox One can't do 1080p/60FPS, but it will take time before we see more games that have a lot going on doing it.

mhunterjr1840d ago (Edited 1840d ago )

All developers have to 'make sacrifices' .

For example, killzone looks good, but its far from photorealistic, and it pales in comparison to what PCs are already doing. You dont think GG would have liked to have the single player locked at 60fps or the MP match the fidelity of the SP? Maybe that's something for the next killzone.

Tradeoffs are a given part of the development process. The notion that Forza made some terrible compromises to reach performance goals when compared to other games is just BS Sony fanboys harp on because it makes them feel good.

MasterCornholio1840d ago

1080P 60FPS is possible on all next gen consoles. What matters is how much detail they can push at those resolutions.

starchild1840d ago

Hell, it was possible on the past two generations of consoles. It's just a matter of what you are willing to give up to get there.

cunnilumpkin1840d ago

cool.....dem new next gen powerhouse sure run those crappy looking indy games at high resolutions

well....high resolutions for 2005....I mean....1080p was considered high back

go consoles?

GentlemenRUs1840d ago (Edited 1840d ago )

It's only a Singing/Dancing/Kinect game so this is to be expected.

Now Games on the other hand...
