EA has officially confirmed that Need For Speed: Rivals on Xbox One and PS4 will run at 1080p i.e 1920x1080 resolution at 30 FPS.
I thought one version was to be better than the other? I suppose it will be small a difference if both were able to achieve same resolution and framerate. Good to see the XO was able to achieve parity for the most part.
Parity? Well you shouldn't be surprised, Forza 5 is 1080p 60fps, been highly praised at every showing and won the best driving game at Gamescom compared to other notable racers that have been shown theres really just no way to deny how amazing Forza 5 is in gameplay and visuals.
forza has nothing on this need for speed
I guess exclusives would obviously be able to pull those stats off due to optimization. Pretty sure drive club and the vast majority of exclusive PS3 racers are 1080p and 60fps. I think he just means its good the developers weren't lazy pieces and succumbed to the ESRAM hurdle like infinity ward.
I agree jokes, I am MUCH more excited for Forza 5, I just like to hear that there is parity on some third party titles. I actually am JUST now getting into racers so Forza 5 will be my first racer I have ever actually bought since I was a kid and bought Road Rash for the PC. Whether or not to get Forza Day 1 is my only question now.
30fps and they call this next gen. Just get a PC with a 200usd GPU enjoy 60fps lol.
Forza and NFS are two completely different animals. NFS is an open world racer with a lot of destruction, variable traffic, variable surfaces, vehicles (land and air), flashing lights and fx, night time and weather effects. Forza 5 is a pretty standard racing game. Albeit one of the better ones or made. There is no variable conditions, variable surfaces, weather, night time or destruction other than normal crashes. Unless Turn 10 upped their game they are not dramatic crashes. Honestly everything I saw on Forza 5 so far has me thinking it's a lot like 2 was when it premiered on the X360 vs Forza the original on the XBOX. F5 is a step up from 4 but not a dramatic step up. That is why it's running at 1080p 60fps. I have watched a ton of movies on F5 and it's just not that big a step up from 4. It's more like the step up 4 was from 3. It was noticeable but not a significant leap.
pivot...please check your info. DriveClub is NOT 60fps. Never has been.
Dude its clear people are just disagreeing because they have something against you. Guess they only get access to the family pc for an hour or two before bedtime, so they have to be prats as fast as possible.
Project Cars and The Crew destroys Forza. Burn nonbelievers!
Able to achieve parity????? R U guys serious. That's not an achievement of the bone but rather the devs developing toward the lowest denominator xbox.
@GGJ It will be by release, mark my words. Why do you think it got delayed? Have you seen it? It's practically photo-realistic. Disagree all you want, but you can't deny it :D Keep in mind, this is a gif, not even a video... http://gifs.gamersyde.com/g...
@timotim Both MP and Sp in KZ is 60 fps http://n4g.com/news/1384077... :/ just saying. and DriveCLub is aiming to achieve 1080p/60fps
@timotim "Contrary to what I thought the single player mode isn't locked to 30 but varies from 30 to 60, so I've encoded a 60 fps version of the video!"By Gamersyde Also http://n4g.com/news/1351579... it is 60fps it just isn't locked :/ .
''A user asked Jessica: "NFS rivals is 1080P 30fps on all nextgen consoles", and to this reply came: "This is correct, thanks!" ''However no details was revealed by Jesssica whether this resolution was a native one or upscaled from lower to higher resolution.'' There might be a catch, The resolution is not confirmed to be native 1080p.
"PS4 doesn't have a single 1080p/60FPS exclusive at all THUS FAR. Not that it means anything, just informing you." Resogun...
I'd take the Forza comment seriously if they where pulling off some proper effects. Weather day night environments. A lot more cars. I don't know i guess it was easy for them to gloss up to 1080p when they just did what Cod Ghosts with the game tbh there's nothing new here two be offered and don't make me laugh with teh cloud please. Next gen your meant to push and that's not just claiming AI. I remember looking at turimso prolog in 1080p when PS3 came out and thinking wow ;) and knowing they hadn't pushed a thing yet. But in xbox ones case i wonder -_-.
Have you ever seen Forza 5 and Forza 4 against each other? Just out of curiosity... 5 looks incredibly like 4 but with more gloss.
"Have you ever seen Forza 5 and Forza 4 against each other? Just out of curiosity... 5 looks incredibly like 4 but with more gloss." I couldn't agree more. I watched the Bernese Alps side by side video several times over. I probably logged 100 hundred hours on that one track on Forza 4. Most of the differences are subtle. Forza 5 just looks slightly more detailed, lighten effects are different (not better but different) and the cars in Forza 5 have more detail. Does Forza 5 look better than 4? Definitely. Is it significant? That's debatable. It is definitely a step up from 4 but not a huge step up. I LOVE FORZA. I am being 110% honest and without bias. Something sorely lacking on this site with some. Forza 5 looks great but I'm definitely not in awe over it. I did notice that Turn 10 added some life to the tracks by adding to the backgrounds. That's a nice addition but personally I would have rather they added things most Forza fans have been clamoring for like variable surfaces, night time, weather effects, rally, etc. But they didn't. It is strictly a rubber meets tarmac racer without all those things I listed. That is why they are able to maintain 1080p 60fps.
Is Forza 5 really 60fps, I wonder?
"Is Forza 5 really 60fps, I wonder?" I guess we will know in a couple weeks. At this point nothing would surprise me with the X1. But the past couple Forza games were smooth as silk. Than again this is new hardware. I'm wondering if some of the pop up from the earlier build has been done away with.
yeah you are right but pleae keep forza talks away ,yeah it is an amzing game i also getting it but this article is having nothing to do with forza ,i'am asking kindly .we willl have great time with both games at least they are very different kind of games ,but now i think that ea will take that comment back about one console having better graphics and i think they are learning how to use esram and i also hope activison to announce that cod ghost is 1080p 60fps on xbox one .
The whole Battlefield/ COD resolution saga has made people think that resolution and framerate are the only things any extra power available can be used for. Not the case, if one is better than the other there are myriad ways that could manifest. Better particles, better draw distance, more objects on screen, lighting, shaders, better anti-aliasing etc etc. There's more to how it looks than resolution and fps.
So are devs legitimately having problems with X1 and ESRAM usage? Is it a handful of devs, some devs here and there or whats the case on this.
The ESRAM issue has been talked about but, honestly, I don't think it will be a big issue except to those that want to make a big deal out of it. I think reasonable people will acknowledge that the X1 will have some beautiful exclusive games that will take advantage of the architecture.
I, myself, am more interested in getting the PS4 first (sometime next year) because they have more games that I am interested in playing first. I will eventually get an X1 sometime after that. My son and I will eventually build a high-end PC after that. I just enjoy playing games and don't get caught up in all the fanboy banter.
@dog Yeah I agree i believe X1 will produce some very nice looking games. The PS4 is a great console to buy first. That would be great if your getting both but settling with PS4 for a while is just fine. Lol I wish I had money to build my own PC from scratch. And I highly I don't like getting caught up in this fanboy nonsense. I don't know why ppl just can't enjoy there console an move on.
Its sad how pathetic you ms fanboys are. The X1 is a complete and utter letdown, face it!
They said one surprised them.. Not that one was better Makes sense now if x1 runs the same as the ps4 version
No. They said one version looked a little better and was on par with the PC version.
Umm racing games should not be used as a reference to console power. With that said it still doesnt mean both games will look the same. One version could still have better effects, textures and consistent frame rates. Edit: what brom said lol
??? That statement doesn't really make alot of sense, if this looked better than crysis would you still say the same thing. Does a game have to be an fps to be accepted graphically.
I never mentioned fps but games with inanimate objects such as cars that are not dynamically moving such as a human or some type of character with lots of dynamic interaction with the environment will not require as much resources. Making metal and plastic look real doesn't take much and the ai/physics doesn't either compared to other things. Also comparing crysis to NFS is not apples to apples
"Good to see the XO was able to achieve parity for the most part." What? explain *parity for the most part* please!
Only based on speculation and lack on information; there was the rumor that the PS4 version may be better in some way.
Actually, this is simple. This is based on a hands on article posted here several weeks ago where it was stated that while the Xbox one version looked good, the PS4 build currently looked better than even the PC version (for some reason). The gist of the hands on was that this game was PS4>PC>XB1. Most of the speculation you're seeing in comments is based (right or wrong) on this one particular hands on article.
Found the article: http://www.polygon.com/2013... Skimming it, I think the better-than-xb1 part was just assumptiom based on all the other leaks regarding performance. Still, this shows you one of the sources of the idea that the PS4 might be the definitive version.
Simple. One console was said to be almost identical to the PC version. Later on another article stated that they were playing on a PS4 and then played it on a PC and there wasn't much difference. Putting 2 & 2 together it's probably the PS4 version that's the better version and the XB1 has sacrificed some areas to achieve resolution parity. "parity for the most part"
Your next gen is here!!
Because they're the same resolution doesn't mean they look the same.
I hope that the PS4 is at least 1080p native, if upscaled plus 30fps i will wait for driveclub :(
Well a HDTV running 120hz or 240hz will make games run smooth anyways.
No. How smooth the game runs depends on the games framerate. A 30fps game on a 240hz TV doesn't make it a 240hz game. Sigh, its a shame that big corporations lie to people who don't know any better.
No, that's what I was not saying. The frame rates go from 2x in 120z & 4x in 240z. I'm not implying a 240hz game. I was just stating that games look smoother in 120hz & 240hz HDTV's. Not the frame rate.
ITT; people who have no idea how interpolation works.
Those TV smoothing techniques dramatically increase input lag.
Tv posts effects can make it better , but more often worse with console gaming
While a 240hz TV may make a game "appear" smoother due to frame interpolation (simulating additional frames to make up for the increased refresh rate), it usually ends up increasing the input lag on the TV due to all the post processing...
Well, forgive me on your comment. But I haven't experienced the "input lag" on my Samsung. Samsung & Sony has the best "240hz & 120hz" HDTV's on the market today. Games run smooth as butter.
@Cherchez - I have a 55" Sony (HX729) that has the 240Hz MotionFlow. I always set the TV mode to GAME as that creates the minimum amount of lag. I couldn't tell you if all the motionflow settings are enabled, but I know a lot of the reality creation and artifact crushing are disabled because they do add to the display lag on the TV.
This looks to be one of those articles I come just to read the comments for...*grabs popcorn*
thats just about every article in N4G
This is disappointing. I prefer 60fps for racing games. I was going to pick this up with the 3 for 2 deal but now I will most likely just rent it instead.
EA is making titanfall and after the COD 720p fiasco I'm sure they didn't want PS4 to be obviously ahead of the xbone. Let see what the reviews say of the game as I was planning on getting it if it's good otherwise wait for Driveclub.
I thought Respawn was making Titanfall, while EA is the publisher? Or are those things one in the same?
You are more correct than what he said but for his point it doesnt matter
Your forgetting. As it says in the rest of the article. It does not say NATIVE. 1080p upscaled on xb1 imo. But lets wait.
No one states the upscale resolution as the native. Who has announced a game as 1080p that isn't native so far? Fifa isn't upscaled NBA2k14 isn't upscaled Forza isn't upscaled Kinect sports isn't upscaled Stop this BS like the X1 is fully incapable of running any game native 1080p, devs usually state the native resolution followed by it upscales to 1080p.
@windblowsagain Your opinion dont mean shit
This only talks about resolution and FPS....it doesn't say anything about texture fidelity or anything else in regards to graphics....wait to see the actual gameplay.
Oh NOW those are important, but when it comes to Ryse,its the resolution and framerate that matter. When you lack one thing to nitpick about there is always some other small detail to complain about.
Uh...what am I complaining about exactly? Just saying people should wait to see a side by side comparison. Also, when did I mention Ryse?
There's no parity here. They had to settle for 30FPS so both versions would be 1080P but we all know PS4 could run the game at 1080p60. Xbone would likely be a different story so.....ya 30FPS for both versions.
> There's no parity here. They had to settle for 30FPS so both versions would be 1080P That's exactly what parity means.
I actually think both consoles could easily run this game at 1080p 60fps, the X1 is already running Forza 5 at 1080p 60fps and it looks better than this visually.
so if the PS4 could run it at a higher resolution why wouldn't they? Ghosts clearly proves that the developer doesn't need to have parity across the two consoles. If it could do better, it would. There's no conspiracies going on out there to make sure they are equal so as not to upset the other console manufacturer..
Then why can't it run DriveClub at 60fps? Parity with the Xbox One version? Oh wait!
Driveclub releases in March of next year. How do you know what it runs at if it isnt completed yet? Oh wait! You dont!
They said so themselves!! Runs at 30fps!!
Well Driveclub has higher visual fidelity including dynamic lighting and weather which Forza hasn't been shown to have.
