720p @ 30fps is a huge disappointment. Do so many zombies on the screen at once really take up that much power? To be honest, the graphics don't particularly strike me as next gen either so im scratching my head as to why this only runs at 720p 30fps.

No doubt it looks fun, but that's a shocker. I thought 720p @ 30fps was going to be left behind in current gen.


Yeah i understand it has alot going on at the same time but i would have at least expected 720 @60fps or 1080p at 30fps.

Well it has loads of stuff happening at once with no loading.

Yeah it doesn't look next-gen at all though. I spent some time with it and visually it was very meh. The scores of zombies is quite a sight though.

Come back when there is a Sony game with over a 1000 enemies on screen and no load time going on at the same time in 1080p 60fps

↓↓ Just saying can't talk smack unless the rival company has done it in 1080p 60fps. Plus it's obvious it was moved from the 360 to x1

DR3 is a open world game running a lot of shiii on screen with no streaming or load screens at launch theres no other launch game doing this and its about go anywhere kill as many zombies as possible so this game is going to be great for what it does. The obsession of 1080p is silly if you want devs to push more than just visuals it depends on the game type.

@True_Samurai It was obvious it was a 360 game since E3 but let me guess YOU would have agreed with me back then?
After coming off a weekend of The Last of Us and seeing the first 20 seconds of this game with the zombie in the car, I almost vomited how bad it looked.
XboxFun  +   826d ago
I think next gen has more to do with what's actually going on. As Septic pointed out, no loading times, open world, and sh#t ton of zombies all on screen.


Zombies don't move? But they are there, they are not a part of the background and they do attack if you get close enough so therefore they are taking up the RAM/CPU (whateves.

@JokesOnYou and @true_samurai

infamous SS is open world game with fully destructible environments
and run at 1080p native/60fps
and pretty much one of the very best looking next gen game along with killzone shadow fall

the fact that this game is exclusive to xbox one but yet can't run at nothing more than 720p native and not very stable 30fps
is not good sign for xbox one hardware

And meanwhile in Deep Down, we have amazing graphics running at 1080p native 60fps on the PS4 and it's an online game. inFamous Second Son has true next-gen graphics and open world (fair enough not as many enemy AIs, but they're still attacking with force), 1080p native 30fps (rumored to be 60fps).

I take my mind back to just after E3 this year where the PS4 games got absolutely eviscerated for what resolution and frame rate they had compared to the XB1 THAT time.

Now it's this close to launch and it seems one after another they seemed to drop leaving Forza 5, a glossier F4 holding it's own, on it's own.

BitbyDeath  +   826d ago
@EZZ, is that confirmed for Second Son?

on-topic: I'm thinking the issues are to do with Snap. Snap allows for the games to be shown alongside the UI with both running at the same time. The divide is likely killing it... that and the hardware being weaker. But some games like this and COD should not have an excuse so it can't be just hardware.
BISHOP-BRASIL  +   826d ago
Stop using framerate and resolution as interchangeable. 720@60fps don't consume all the exactly same resources as 1080p@30fps, that's not how it works. For instance having that many zombies at once hardly would affect resolution as would the individual quality of each zombie, but the number of zombies could indeed end up on bad drops if they force 60fps and the GPU is not strong enough.

I think it's pretty clear Xbox 360 have a bottleneck with ESRAM, it's simply not big enough for full HD frames with highly demanding assets, they need to get the byte per pixel down a lot (optimization) in order to make it viable (or, do as we already achieve 1080p on current gen, either gimp the assets or make less demanding games even when you use high quality assets, like racing), but this alone don't affect frame rate. Frame rate suffering, if it ever comes to be a constant issue, will be the result of a weaker GPU, not the memory (it would be if it only had slow DDR3 RAM, but ESRAM should not bottleneck the refresh process, it's fast enough and, apparently, it can read and write at the same time).

Anyway, to be completelly fair, I don't think it's simply hardware restrictions or the number of zombies at once here making the game run in 720p@30fps... I could be wrong, but frankly I don't see how this game could choke Xbox One... In fact, what I've seen on videos and screenshots doesn't look like enough to choke a WiiU! Yes, Xbox One hardware restrictions could have had an impact if it really can't keep stead 30fps, but to me this literally looks like it was a Xbox 360 game, already aimed and engined to run 720p @ 30fps.

Chances are simply set the game to render the same assets on 1080p would not look very good, while redoing everything may not had been an option, so just render it at 720p and let the upscaller do it's thing may had been the best result with what they had at hand for resolution. And framerate, that would demand some reworking on the engine, which could mess up with other stuff (like number of zombies) and take some time. Which means I think they didn't even tried much to push it to 1080p and/or 60fps.

If you want to consider this would be a logical decision, lazy from devs or "evil" MS not allowing a needed delay, it's up to you, but remember I'm just gussing here, I don't have NOTHING to back that theory up.
Ju  +   826d ago
If this was "just" a 360 it would not have had troubles keeping the framerate beyond 30fps @ 720p. But it had troubles even delivering this at first. It's the usual XBO limitation. Sure, streaming textures (TR, paging or what ever) might overcome the ESRAM size limit but it will never remove the bandwidth limitation which come with DDR3. Either TR don't work ATM or it isn't as efficient as it was planed/thought in the first place. This is where the problem comes from - this and the simply slower GPU. If devs can offset the memory issues and simply "assume" everything is in ESRAM (be it through intelligent paging or memory handling) than the XO can render (almost) the same fidelity as the PS4. But the reduced limitation points to the fact that buffers must be in ESRAM to actually achieve this. Having a static buffer which eats all the ESRAM isn't the smartest thing, either. Some mem will be needed for shaders and effects. IMO it's pretty cristal clear what the bottle neck is here, and it won't change throughout the live time of the XO.

Kryptix  +   826d ago
The game isn't even graphically amazing and it's running at 720p... lol I truly understand the 30fps because there's a lot of zombies on the screen but it should definitely be running at least 900p if you're going to be giving the excuse of no loading screens. And the "so much shii on one screen" doesn't even apply because that's up to the CPU also to process that.

You also got the use of the magical cloud that the Xbots here seem to not bring up. The cloud doesn't help with specs and Xbox One ESRAM is a big bottleneck...let's leave it at that.

You know what?...I was just saying this to a friend.

After playing both of them, if someone were to ask me between Killer Instinct and Dead Rising, which one was 1080p and which was 720p, I would have easily picked KI as the 1080p game and DR3 as the 720p one.

Deathdeliverer  +   826d ago
My problem is that these are the exclusives. You can focus on this one system and fully maximize it. No splitting of teams and resources. No need to hold back because another system is too far behind or you cant implement this new area because another system cant handle it. How are these games coming out this way? Im getting KI day one and Dead Rising but damn. This is a bit concerning. Yeah its a lot of zombies on screen but a lot of them are inactive. The system still has to render them obviously, but they aren't going through all of the animations until you come within a unseen area and become active. To be honest I'd rather have less zombies on screen if that's what it took, just to achieve 60fps. Why KI is so underwhelming resolution wise is beyond me especially when its only got a handful of characters. The KI fan in me overlooks this, but the WTF in me is saying WTF! lol.
MELMAN26  +   826d ago

I can agree with you about DR3, but HOT D@AMN, KI looks good. Like I said b4, if someone was to tell me that KI was running at 720p, I would have to see prof, because to me it looks amazing.

Another thing, while I was playing these games, I never thought about or wondered the resolution, I was just having a good time and enjoying the fun that me and my friends were having.
esemce  +   826d ago
KI is 60fps that's why it's 720p, looks like the Bone won't have many 1080@60 games if it cant even run A 2d fighting game at this level.

The Xbone games at e3 looked great because they were running on high end PC's.
Dead rising 3 did look next gen then but it wont on the Xbone at 720@30.

Glad I'm PC+PS4, since the release of Kinect MS has failed to interest me.

The best thing they had/have is XBLA games.

Not every game this gen will be 1080p and 60 fps.

Xbox One will be lucky to have 3 games this entire Gen which run at contemporary resolutions and frame rates. Its just too weak to do it.

Deadrising is not a lame franchise. It may not be your type of game, but there are a lot of people that are fans of the franchise. If you think Deadrising is lame, you are not a gamer. Gamers don't call franchises like DR lame.


Like last generation when the PS3 started out with substandard framerates on many games, I am sure the X1 will pick it up as the gen continues.

As for "lame" exclusives... Frankly, the PS4 has the lamest launch exclusives right now... Killzone, Knack, and Resogun... Vs. X1... DR3, Forza 5, Ryse, Lococycle, KI3, Powerstar Golf, and Crimson Dragon.

But it doesn't really matter to me because I am getting them both!


I agree, that's why I have both X1 and PS4 on pre-order. I get all the best games then!
joseph1111  +   826d ago
I cancelled my preorder for the Xbox one and currently only picking up a PS4. But to be fair, this is because the multi platform game response. We really don't know how the PS4 would do with this type of aggressive graphics and amount of zombies on the screen at once. So instead of sounding bias, let's chalk this one up as "good for Microsoft for pushing for exclusives and keeping gaming alive", without this push and competition, gaming would remain stagnant overall....
DarkHeroZX  +   826d ago
Lol last gen was able to do this at 720p and 30fps. So far the PS4 is the only console to actually be a huge step up from last gen. Pretty sure this game could easily do 1080p at 30-60fps for this game as well. If the PS4 cans run DC Universe and Planetside 2 at 1080p and 60fps on what's comparable to high or ultra on PC then this game is no problem.

you do know different resolutions puts a different amount of strain on the gpu right. you do know some pc gamers lower resolution to get better fps or gfx effects right. its a matter of taste or choice.

DigitalAnalog  +   826d ago
Even if the X1 is capable of delivering a 1080p/30fps, let us not forget that this IS a CAPCOM game. The same CAPCOM's total market value at $150 mil +. Which means, that, even if they could, simply don't have the manpower or resources to deliver the game in the most prestine condition possible. (Take note, I'm actually giving X1 the benefit of the doubt here)

We have to understand that both budget/graphics ratio exist and just like the last-gen, would eventually see the potential once developers get more familiar with their toolset.

If anything, it all points to the fact that X1 IS releasing earlier than schedule and thus games are simply pushed faster to bump the number exclusives up as it is the only factor they have over the competition.

Sadly, this decision making process (if true) would only hurt them in the long run if the games do not "work" as advertised. There's only so much you can sway over the consumer's eyes with 1080p UI or fancy terms like "upscaling". Like the RROD, it's going to leave a bad taste in people's mouths, and unlike the RROD, you can't place a magic chip on a game to make it better. Once it goes gold, the only "improvements" they could deliver is either DLC content or cleaning up bug issues.

Ju  +   826d ago
It's using "display planes". Basically the XO can have multiple "display planes" - like layers - which can be mixed in HW and can have different resolutions. The video logic combines those to the final image in native resolution. Basically, back buffers and overlay as separate layers rendered in different resolution. HUD/UI is usually less dynamic but contains more "static" information which makes sense to render in the highest possible resolution. E.g. this makes text clearly readable. It also does not require much bandwidth, either. That's why it can actually be higher res.

Games don't NOT benefit from having more FPS.Especially in this case, where DR3 already dips framerate a lot.Dipping slightly below 60fps isn't nearly as bad as dipping below 30fps.

Not a fast action game? Do you think you are just going to leisurely walk away from the zombie hordes? Shove them back, shoot every now and then and walk away? Dead Rising, in the past, gets intense. Fast paced is exactly what it is. Sure its not a Strider game, but fast paced intense gameplay? Dead Rising has had it.

Considering all the framerate issues at E3 when it was shown behind closed doors, I can't say I'm surprised. 30FPS isn't by default a bad thing, it's the 720P number that's showing up with increasing regularity, that is the real issue.

Deividas  +   826d ago
Yes and thats because the x360 and ps3 were a lot harder to develop for and the more comfortable they got the easier it was to develop games on them.
But now, the devs already stated that the Xone and ps4 are really easy to develop whats the excuse for this?
To me looks like weak hardware....
CrossingEden  +   826d ago
@deividas, yes, let's not take the fact that these are earliest games,
"easier to develop for" does not mean "yo we are so pro with this tech bra, we automatically know the ins and outs of everything after one min bro, damn son, we so skillz"
It's like saying "I just discovered that I draw better with a pen than with a pencil," that doesn't mean that just because i'm using the pen means that I can automatically draw the mona lisa right off the bat.
NewShadow101  +   826d ago

yea true, halo 3 ran at 640p so it took them 10 years to get to 720p... wait, what?

point is weve been at 720p for the last 8-10 yrs. need to leave it behind especially with the hardware jump we got, this situation with the XBOXONE is getting old. what if the 360 ran at 480i like the original xbox. next gen my ass is what i would say.
xPhearR3dx  +   826d ago

They never said it was really easy. They said it was easier. There's still a lot for the devs to learn. If what you are saying was true, then we would see no improvement in games over time when clearly that's not going to be the case.

In face, you're wrong about the 360. The 360 was rather easy to develop for where the PS3 was not. And look at what we have at the end of this gen, a game like GTA V. A technical masterpiece.

The advantage of the PS4 and Xbone is we wont have to wait YEARS for the devs to start understanding the hardware. They have a much better idea, but that doesn't mean they know everything.
EXVirtual  +   826d ago
What the hell? They couldn't even get 900p? The game doesn't even look that good graphically anyway.

I can understand the 30fps (it doesn't seem like the type of game that needs 60fps), but they couldn't even get 900p? Let alone 1080p? Damn.
Also, why is Ryse 900p and this is 720p? Ryse looks much better graphically.

I'm really wondering how things are gonna go down for the XBO later down the line. How the hell is an exclusive for the XBO not even running at 900p?

Part of the reason is that Crytek is a special studio; very few developers out there are as talented as Crytek's artists and programmers at architecting engines, optimizing to get the most out of platforms, and making games look good even on weaker hardware.

For example, Crysis 2 was one of the best looking multiplatform games running on the ancient PS3/360 hardware a couple years back.

Sadly, with Microsoft publishing it, and their name featuring prominently in the title sequence, that isn't very likely for a long time. Its unfortunate, because I had a lot of fun with DR2 and I *really* don't want an Xbone. Maybe in a couple years, like with Mass Effect.

Some Xbox fans will try once again to pass the blame off onto the developers. And while that might be partially true (coupled with the new-console launch crunch with unfamiliar hardware), it is also a recurring trend that we're seeing many 720p games on the Xbone exclusively. First it was DICE, then it's Infinity Ward, and now it's Capcom. What's the common denominator between these three "lazy" devs?

It's also disconcerting that even though Dead Rising 3 is an exclusive game, and the developers only had to worry about one console, they still could not get it to run at 1080p.

If you read up on the tech that will be going into games coming next year and beyond it will only get worse for the xbone, when they start using gpu compute and having to move more files to the ram the xbone will struggle more and more as time goes on because the ESram is too small to shift all the stuff they will have to put on it, so in a few years multiplats will start looking way better on the ps4 while at the same time they will have to downgrade for the xbone.

Its not looking good , i think MS knows this and i hav an idea they will be hard at work making their next console and release it a lot earlier than expected.

Don't forget Titanfall is 720p, and Killer Instinct.

I have a feeling Destiny is going to be 720p also. Bungie couldn't even get Halo 3 to run at 720p on the 360. They aren't the best when it comes to tech, but are good at making better gameplay.

You guys act like there's a $500 graphics card in these bad boys. Granted these are gaming consoles and will essentially be a type of gaming pc that will be mass produced so lets say the graphics should be comparable to a $250-$300 card (aka 7950 or GTX 670), you still would have to take into account the rest of the console. At $399 and $499, early in its life cycle they couldnt get this game at that resolution and framerate.

Had it been a high end gaming pc or x1/ps4 cost about $800 clams then my expectations would be through the roof.

For those that know me (or just take a look at my comment history) I'm an avid sony fan and admittedly my inner fanboy can come out when people say stupid things.

I might get disagrees for this, but I'm inclined to partly agree with frigid.

*a pig flies past the window*

The game looks like it's still going to be hella fun and whether it was 720p or 1080p wouldn't change the fun factor that much. I think most people that buy this game are going to have a great time. Hopefully for them there aren't many frame rate dips.

But the real issue here though is the fact that the xbone seems to be having a hard time producing games up to next gen standard.

Granted these are launch games and developers are under very strict deadlines, but considering the PS4 seems to be having no such problems it's very telling.

And like people have been saying, developers are only going to want to improve on gameplay and become even more created in their visions.

Next gen doesn't just mean higher resolution, it's means smarter AI, more enemies on screen, more complex physics, more environmental destruction, and all round more complex game engines with intricate game mechanics... and all these areas are only going to improve in the near future and become a lot more taxing on the already taxed xbone hardware.

This isn't just going to affect the look of a game, it's going to affect gameplay as well. If I was getting an xbone I would be extremely extremely worried about all this.

What are you basing that on? Capcom's definition of success is probably not the same as what you call it, and in either case, things could be looking... not great for this game.

Here's the point though: people(gamers) will know, and they will be disappointed. They will go into GameStop and hear the news, or be told by friends who are more into gaming than they are. Did you think that just because not everybody comes to sites like this that they won't find out? I should say: do you HOPE that's the case?

Sorry to disappoint, but people WILL know, and they WILL care. And this game- and the console it's on- will suffer for it.

Sure, there will be people like you who make excuses for every shortcoming. Folks who claim "If you're a gamer, you get all the consoles," as if not getting them all means you're less of a gamer, regardless of your reasons.

But when it comes down to it, more people than you want to admit will decide NOT to get the game. And because it's happening on so many titles, more people than you want to admit will NOT get the console that's having these issues.

Couple in a higher price and all the others disadvantages, and the XB1 won't be the success you wish it could be.

Just like people cared this gen right? Hicken has it ass-backwards, only people, I mean the SDF care what resolution or fps the game is in. The outside world just wants a shiny new toy.

The logic of Hicken is so warped that it's almost like some strange David Lynch comedy. People are going to pass on DR3 because it's 30fps?? And yet it's an open world, no loading, and has probably over a 1000 zombies FREE Roaming in an (again) an OPEN WORLD environment.

And yet it's the 30fps that will turn gamers off and not the other great next gen features of the game.

This is the mind of the warped sony fanboy. They don't care what a game can actually do only on how pretty it looks.

Is Hicken even excited about the PS4 or any PS4 game? Because all I see him do is comment on Xbox One, it's good to know that this system is on his mind more than his precious PS4.

I haven't said the XB1 would be doomed, or a flop.

I DID say that continuing news of games struggling to meet "standard" resolution and fps will be damaging. If you've got something to dispute that, by all means, share.

I also said that, counter to your claim, people will know, and they will care. Believe it or not, word spreads rather quickly these days, and history has already shown us that people gravitate towards things based on what their peers think(part of the reason why the 360 was so popular).

The game struggling to maintain 30fps could well mean it won't sell well. And yes, Dead Rising 3 not being up to a perceived graphical standard can have the same effect.

Yep, people cared this generation. You had Xbox fanboys and even magazines claiming the minor differences in resolution, texture, and framerate game the 360 advantages. And that was NOTHING like what we're already seeing with the PS4 and XB1. I remember Xbox fans bragging about Mafia II because the PS3 lacked the same grass textures. Do those people- do those events- no longer exist, now that Xbox isn't the console that can be bragged about?

What can the game do? You talk up "1000 zombies," but they might as well be 1000 trees, for all the moving they do until they're right on top of you. Wait, you didn't even say it like fact. You say "probably," meaning possibly, and you hope it's more likely than not. So while you accuse me of not noting what the game CAN do, you don't even assert any such thing, yourself.

As for the games I'm looking forward to, pretty sure my comment history has frequently noted Killzone, Drive Club, Resogun, DC Universe(carrying over from PS3), Rime, and inFamous.

And you've never "reasoned" with me. You've stated the same baseless argument repeatedly, your comments as rooted in realism as a hobbit in Brooklyn.

H0RSE  +   826d ago
I can already see all the inaccurate comparisons when comparing this game with exclusives on PS4. There is an impressive amount of things happening on screen at once in DR3, but of course none of that matters to many - they completely dismiss it and see focus only on numbers. 1080p vs 720p. 30fps vs 60fps.... That fact that so much stuff id going on a t once, is a direct example of "next-gen" despite the resolution and framerate.

Where was it stated that 1080p/60fps was going to be a standard for net-gen gaming, because all I've been able to find as a "source" for these claims, is wishful thinking on behalf of the community. Many want to use the the price of systems as a way to justify these claims, when in actuality, the next-gen consoles are modestly priced. Single PC components can cost as much or more than an entire next-gen console, and in some cases, more than both. I'm sure many of you have TV's that cost more, and perhaps home theater speakers as well. Many of your phones, if bought outright, cost more than the new consoles, and there's also the case that PS3 launched with a $600 price tag.

I'm not defending the game running at 720p/30fps out of brand loyalty, but rather due to seeing a game running on console with 1000's of models on screen at once, and using rational thought to come to the conclusion that, although 1080p/60fps would have been remarkably impressive, it was also pretty impractical to expect, under the circumstances. When and if PS4 features an exclusive this "active," we'll see how good it runs.

There are always sacrifices to make - performance vs quality. Many seem to have already made up their minds that the next-gen systems shouldn't have any comprises to make, and should be consistently running both at high levels. When speaking from a technical aspect, if you choose console over PC, you should be prepared to settle for "good enough," with "the best" being an exception to the rule. It seems that even at this early pre-launch stage, gamers are already expecting "the best" as the norm.

You'll never win here mate, best to cease trying to comment and educate a bunch of hardware nuts with supreme powers and all that shit. Just enjoy DR3,Titanfal, Ryse, Forza 5 and more while they play their X-Plat games in 1080p Native. I know where I'd rather be.

....There are always sacrifices to make - performance vs quality. Many seem to have already made up their minds that the next-gen systems shouldn't have any comprises to make, and should be consistently running both at high levels. When speaking from a technical aspect, if you choose console over PC, you should be prepared to settle for "good enough," with "the best" being an exception to the rule. It seems that even at this early pre-launch stage, gamers are already expecting "the best" as the norm....

What quality? Graphics in DR3 aren't next-gen. No dynamic lightning lightnig, no AA, low res textures, weak LOD on chareacters. At least DOF is OK. Look the Ryse how it looks on big area and with more graphics effects. At least DR3 should be at 900p. Upscaled 720p to 1080p is not good looking on big TV's ( from 40 inch ).

Does TLOU has the same amount of models and "action" happening onscreen at once throughout the course of the game? To simply overlook everything and focus solely on the numbers, is ignorance.

KZ:SF may be running at 1080p, but is only achieving 60fps in MP. They ramped up the visuals, and as a result, took a hit to performance, and this is only on an FPS game, with not nearly as much going on at once.


There was no comparison of power between the 2 consoles, only in the inaccurate comparisons between the games themselves. Even if DR3 was released on PS4, it would likely not achieve 1080p/60fps, without sacrifices, if at all.

You also need to account for the devs themselves, since ultimately they are the one responsible for delivery the performance and quality we get from games, despite how much power they have to work with.

Comparing PS3 power to Xbone "Power" is also ignorance , FACT !

No doubt it has lots of zombies on screen, but they hardly require complex AI routines. The animation, textures, AA & lighting all look better on a PS3 game, that's totally unacceptable, no matter how you cut it.
H0RSE  +   826d ago
And how nice do you think those animations, textures, AA and lighting would look on TLOU if it had to render all those extra models at once? Your argument is inaccurate and selective.

And AI routines is more of a CPU thing than a GPU, which wouldn't really have an effect on the resolution.

Actually it's been confirmed that killzone is running 60fps on multiplayer and campaign.

No, not happening at all at once. Many explosions, gunfire, particles, rain effects ( in some maps ) dynamic lightning etc....

You're exactly the consumer microsoft is targeting. Someone who is willing to pay more and get less. Its your money, to each his own.

sorry dude but 720p or 1080p has never been my reason for buying a never was this gen and never will next gen...i buy games to enjoy them and if thats what all xbx fans are like then its a good thing...cos we see value in the box we paying for....i dont downplay others choices never have...evryone has his preferences...and we should respect that.

Child...stfu. If the game is up to the standards of his liking, get the f*** over it and move on. What point is there to make a comment that belittles someone purchase choices?

Stupid *** fanboys are killing me on this site lately.

Well done pal, spot on. Do as you wish, the amount of complete and utter tosh from people on this site because they cannot possibly comprehend how and why you want an Xbox One is insane. Enjoy it. Enjoy gaming.
Games_R_Us  +   826d ago
Yep agreed. Now watch the disagree button get selected cause remember, N4G is offical Sony Camp so to expect any support for Xbox is just silly.
