Multiple sources hint at Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag being sub-1080p on Xbox One

GearNuke: "The Xbox One’s pre-launch resolution fallout has become a topic of heated debates around the internet. What began as an isolated plague that had only affected Battlefield 4 now appears to have become a widespread issue for a majority of Xbox One launch titles." (Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, Xbox One)

I thought AC4 ran at 1080p on both platforms? Wasn't it confirmed? Shocking if it doesn't run at 1080p 30fps, considering its a cross gen title that apart from some features, doesn't look too demanding.

It could be lack of AA? Or maybe a blur filter. "Xbox One version looks “fuzzier” and “strained”"

Who knows? But the last thing the X1 needs is more bad press when it comes to multiplats.

AC4 runs at 60/1080 on ps4 confirmed and runs at 60/???? on the xbOne

@angels the lack is due the fact MS didn't send devs-kites early and the drives/tools were not ready as well -the rumors about MS being behind by 6 months were true-

which resulted in most 3rd-party titles being show case on the ps4

Has their been any xbox one footage shown? Correct me if I'm wrong

What's so funny is I was literally just thinking about this possibility because of recent stuff and within minutes the article comes up xD

I can just see xbox fans discrediting the source.....jusrt like they did with neogaf....and look how that turnes out...it has become the basis of the resolutiongate.

Thanks! Yeah that's true because I couldnt remember any real gameplay that was official besides like you stated someone filming it off screen (and probably werent suppose to).

There has been a surprising lack of footage for the xbox one version for only 5 or so more days till launch....for many multiplatform games.

Yeah, there is some. But its pretty bad quality and off screen so you can't really judge. You gotta question why we have so much direct feed PS4 gameplay and none from the X1. Its like.....you are expecting people to pay HUNDREDS of £/$ for this console and you aren't showing them direct feed gameplay. I imagine it doesn't really help with X1-only buyers confidence.


My bad, i thought it was off -screen gameplay but it is direct feed. Here's the link for you :


To be fair, even if it is sub-1080p....that lightning storm looks EPIC.

Edit @Lukas, thanks. That's the first I have seen that footage and it's fairly new. Up until now that has been all that has been shown but I stand corrected. Bubs.

To be honest, I think it would be wise to expect the worst regarding multiplats and XB1. Hopefully the multiplats get better later in the cycle.

This on top of possible XB1s being bricks on arrival just amplifies the bad press for MS and the ongoing PR nightmare about resolution and power continues...

AC4 was confirmed to be "running at 1080p" but the word native was never used. It was confirmed for PS4 when the reviews came out that it was clearly running native. Also AC4 Next gen runs on 60fps well at least it does on PS4.
iamnsuperman  +   657d ago
It was never confirmed. The only thing that was confirmed was both will run in a higher resolution and frame rate to current generations (that was a while ago) and that the PS4 (no mention of the One) would run in 1080p at 60fps (which was odd but Ubisoft were showing off the PS4 build at some interview when it was confirmed)

Blame the Kinect. To much of the XB1's systems resources are being eaten by the Kinect and the other operating systems. The XB1 is more than capable of running games at 1080p/60fps but right now performance and resolution are being sacrificed for the sake of Kinect, ESPN, Skype etc. The original PS4 was only supposed to be a 720p machine and then Sony doubled the memory. Had Sony stayed with 4gb of GDDR5 the XB1 would be the superior console by a lot. By the time MS knew that the PS4 would be built with 8 and not 4, specs were locked in. OOOooooops.

Yeah sorry guys, I may have been misinformed, i was under the impression that the fps was 60 in SP but it is locked at 30 unlike current tho which significantly drops in action down to 15-20fps in most occasions.(mentioned here http://kotaku.com/assassins... and here http://www.joystiq.com/2013... this link also states that the PS4 version runs at 1080p native but at 30fps) The only thing pointing to me that the sp was at 60fps was this video at gamespot ( http://www.gamespot.com/vid... they compare what 30fps looks like to a 60fps and the footage they used was AC4 on the Ps4 (comparison starts at 03:34)what confusses me is why would they use AC4 on PS4 if it doesnt run at 60fps?

It runs at 30fps on PS4 in single player, while I think the multiplayer might be 60fps. The main campaign was definitely reported by Digital Foundry to be 30fps.

Maybe because we are buying an XB1 for more than just resolution ever thought of that? How about the better exclusives at launch, dedicated servers provided by Microsoft,lacking with Sony,

Better UI experience, Skype calling, able to watch TV, able to move around the dashboard using voice only, host of other features.

XB1 is 1080p box, just because some gaming developers are not reaching it at launch. Doesn't mean it can't be achieved. Gaming developers have already said its likely when they get more time with the XB1

100 extra you do realise Sony included no camera right so they could offer their console at 400! think before you say stupid stuff.

I got Fifa 14, Kinect and XB1 for 500- price was never really an issue as i got a bargain.

Kayant  +   657d ago

"100 extra you do realise Sony included no camera right so they could offer their console at 400! think before you say stupid stuff."

I think you're the one saying stupid shit here. Why would they add a $40 premium to the console if they included it and wanted to compete on price?? Even if they did it would still be cheaper so the price advantage will still be there.

They have said it wasn't included because it would have resulted in more money being loss per PS4. "$399" was always the magic price for them.

"Sony's Masayasu Ito says US$399 was deemed "the magic price" for the PlayStation 4 – Efforts were made to include the camera at the US$399 mark, but pressure from above forbade Sony Computer Entertainment from making too much of a loss on the PlayStation 4 hardware."


Also can we please stop the camera nonsense. It obvious the main reason MS included kinect is to sell you the experience they want you to have with XB1. it's heavily integrated to the OS. PS camera is more of an optional gaming peripheral for some games or things like live streaming, facial sign-in. The fact you can use any mic for OS voice navigation shows this. It's not an integrated/core experience they're trying to sell like what MS is doing.

The is why things like snap/switching apps make sense because it's so much faster/more convenient to do with your voice.

Didn't you know? 1080p doesn't matter, the gameplay is what matters. Play the games, not the resolution. Play the games, not the controller. Play the games, not the HDTV. Play the games, not what you see on screen.

Just don't talk about Forza 5, all of a sudden 1080p will be relevant again.

In all honesty, the XO features look cool.

But after you are over that you will notice that 99% of time what you do with those machines is actually play the games. And to do that, you need the best HW to actually achieve the best result. And that HW is the PS4 - by a mile.

The OS can be as cute as can be; who really cares if the majority of the time what you do is game and you never see the OS - with that said, I still have the feeling MS is overdoing the "front end" putting the wrong priorities onto things which don't really matter for a (primary) game console. I still have the feeling the OS is feature over loaded and still lags (snappy) behind the PS4 OS this time - which has 0 lag what so ever.

I am not really surprised, though. MS - having a PC mindset - is trying to turn a console into a general purpose machine. That's not what I want. I'd get a PC for that if I really want that (or/and maybe a SteamMachine).

JessiePinkmanYo  +   657d ago
Lwhit6-Yeah, because a $500 console that red rings would be just great for the gaming world. A lot of Non gamers (parents, grandparents etc) STILL refer to gaming machines as "Nintendos". All they'll know when they read a tech article on CNN is that the new game machine little Johnny wants for Christmas will be a waste. Like Campy the Camper said, that's even more sad if that struggling parent forked out money for a system that's DOA. The same can be said about Playstations YLOD. BOTH are bad for the gaming community.
I'm getting both, X1 and PS4, but I really don't understand some peoples' fetish with bashing the console that they don't own. Don't like it? Don't buy it. Enjoy your system of choice and be THANKFUL there's competition, otherwise, gaming would suck.

Why would you want that? That's just dumb...stop wishing for crap that will inconvenience other gamers. Preference is fine, let's just not be stupid about it.

For me, right now, the Xbox One just isn't worth it. Has some interesting looking games, but MS' attitude towards first party exclusives last gen was telling - they near abandoned them. They had their big guns - Halo, Gears and Forza - but not much else. Sony had (and still have) a lot of studios working on exclusive content that is more varied than that offered by MS.
Add in that the multi-platform situation seems to have reversed from the current generation (where the 360 usually had the superior versions of games), and the choice is a no-brainer. Especially with my distaste for Kinect, and the fact that the price is just too high for the level of tech they offer.

When the One has a Kinect-free SKU, or undergoes a sizeable price drop, then I'll buy one if there's a decent amount of true exclusives I want.

At least dislike something for valid reasons without resorting to nonsense like you posted.

KrisButtar  +   657d ago
This is a problem because my current gen systems already can do 720, can do 720 up scaled and I'm sure there is likely some native 1080 as well. 1080 has been a standard for a very long time in PC and in HDTV.

Many people didn't have HDTV when the current gen released but they were built for it. Now that next gen is coming they are not even built for the standard HDTV setting? They should be able to pump out the standard HDTV setting for games without breaking a sweat.

Its not even the start of next gen yet and some titles can't even do the standard on games that are cross gen. It doesn't really seem "next gen" if it can't do the standard. Its not something that would stop me from buying one, its just a major piss off.

Yeah the Xbone you are paying for a different experience which is good as you have more diversity for each system and not have two similar systems, but the fact is the difference the Xbone brings still is just a small part of what each system should offer and that are games.

Resolution is important as it enhances the game experience primary to the game not a secondary experience like switching to television or snapping apps while playing. This obviously shows the priority MS put into the game experience more than the other.

Also when you pay $100 more you would expect the value to increase in the primary game experience which right now is not the case. But later on is where we will see the difference and if the esram will be solved, or if it doesn't and we see these returns as permanent.

That's the site, not the users. People are just guessing if they think it's true or not. N4g should change it to something like 'probably'
MysticStrummer  +   657d ago
Yeah people tend to comment on "hopefully" without thinking. It's the wrong word, and it's N4G's fault, not the people who think the rumor may very well be true.
MysticStrummer  +   657d ago
People are just saying the rumor may very well be true, and based on recent evidence no one can blame them for thinking so. The word "hopefully" is the fault of the site, not the voters.

If their own exclusives can't even handle 1080p, why do you think other games will?
Baka-akaB  +   657d ago
but come on it's only AC4 ... basically an enhanced version of the ps3-360 game ... would be really sad if true
kiz2694  +   657d ago
yeah I think it would, this game is amazing on current gen, but it would look outstanding running 1080p and at 60fps which I have never played a AC game at. that extra clarity would really at to the world of AC4, just like i can see the extra next gen water/rain and foliage really adding to the natural world.
KNWS  +   657d ago
Forza their only first party exclusive is 1080p and 60 frames.

Ryse and dead rising are second party games.

Killzone and Knack run at 1080p but the frame rate is not a solid 60, it varies with Killzone.

Ah, yes, Forza. You wanna know why it runs at 1080p? No weather, no day / night transitions. 200 cars, 14 tracks.
Kayant  +   657d ago
"Ryse and dead rising are second party games"

So... Why does that matter? Devs will still be developing for only one system & have more support from MS than third-parties & more time/resources to optimise for XB1.
ambientFLIER  +   657d ago

Yes, because the resolution of the game depends on how many tracks or cars are included on the disk...

Do you people even know the bs that you're spouting?

Honestly, if all this negative news hasn't turned someone off yet, I don't know what will.

You'd think an ms fan would at least wait until after launch for more truth to come and and then make a decision.

But that's too sensible for some people.
PixelNinja  +   657d ago
Love it at the beginning of every generation, console gamers momentarily turn into PC gamers, moaning about graphics such as the polygon count or resolution, further down the line when the consoles slowly become less powerful in terms of specs, the gamers revert back into that "It doesn't matter about the graphics, it's about the games!" phase .__.
ELpork  +   657d ago
None of this matters, nor will it in like 3 months.
youndamie  +   657d ago
Lol your avatar goes perfectly with that comment.
jessupj  +   657d ago
You think multiplats are magically going to get bettter in 3 months?

If the only reason for the sub 1080p is the under developers drivers and developers needing to get used to the esram, then maybe. But games will still perform better on the PS4 if developers continue to take advantage of the hardware.

I think it's more likely a combination of that plus the fact that kinect is using up resources and the huge gap in technical power.

Either way it's a very big gamble to take on a $500 console. I would be incredibly nervous if I was getting an xbone at launch. Extremely nervous.

If it matters to you, why not just wait a few months until after release to see how things pan out?
ELpork  +   657d ago
Ok, fine, I'm being to literal. A year, maybe a little less then that. Launch games are gonna suck, they're gonna be janky, and jittery, comes with the territory.

A year from now, people will be talking about Fallout 4, Uncharted 4, Titan fall, the new Mass Effect and whatever else. This resolution stuff will be worked out by the time games that people care about hit. I'm just sick of seeing it, just like I was sick about hearing how fucked PS3 ports were in comparison to XB360 ports.

But it's the internet, people mass to run the same news into the ground like their memes and jokes and whatever else.

Its as though the universe has perfectly aligned to make Microsoft's Xbox console as pathetic as possible or create an illusion, a shame really because I was looking forward to it immensely.

Might still play it (I will) but this is just entering a new realm of melancholy.

Sony did make some bad decisions at launch of the PS3 and were quite arrogant following the success of the PS2. But there decisions still had many legitimate benefits for gamers, unlike MS's DRM, which had none.

I bought a PS3 near launch because I knew the games would follow.

And look what happened.

The 360 has virtually been a barren wasteland in regards to quality exclusives for the last few years, while I've been enjoying amazing games on my PS3. Too many to count.

I honestly don't see how any gamers can support and defend MS so fiercely after they dropped the ball so hard with exclusives.

Sure, its my second console and in my bedroom but I love laying in bed after a 4 hour battlefield session on my ps3 and playing trine or Mario on the gamepad as I watch History Channel on my plasma.

If it's actually decently optimized this time. My PC (Gtx 580 and i7 OCed to 4Ghz), struggled to run AC3 at 1080p 60fps. That game was optimized like poo.

Depends on the PC, you guys act like just any PC can do this when the majority of PCs that are sold today have integrated graphics. Please clarify what kind of PC can run 4000k and 120 fps.
Sci0n  +   657d ago
you didn't know? every PC elitist who post on N4G has the ultimate gaming rig worth 4k or more dollars. Its BS because allot of pc gamers have entry lvl gaming rigs for games like league of legends but you let the elitist on here tell it every PC gamer has the ultimate rig.

I bought my PC 5 years ago for about 600$ upgraded recently for ~250$ to a 7870, and another 4GB RAM (8 in total now).
PCs with integrated graphics are not meant for gaming btw...

You build your PC with a specific resolution resolution in mind. For "just" 1080p you don't have to invest alot of money. Check out the Tek Syndicate "kill your console" vid where they build good gaming PCs for 400-600$ ;) 1080p is never an issue (I never played a game below 1080p in like 4 years), but the framerate depends ALOT on how well the game is optimized. There are games that won't go over ~40fps no matter how low the settings are... But in most cases you can CHOOSE how much FPS you want through settings, or if you prefer better graphics @30fps.

And if you can afford a 4k monitor, obviously money isn't an issue for you anyway so you'll get 780tis in SLI mode.

I am buying the PS4 but I hope developers come to grips with the Xbox Ones ram so they will be able to deliver 1080p as well. Reason being is if the PS4 developers don't have enough competition then they get lazy pure and simple.

Edsword  +   657d ago
Maybe not, but this is really the first gen where the two biggest competitors are releasing consoles at the same time. PS2 and Xbox 360 both launched ahead of the comp. Everything should be looked at in context, not just one point, because that doesn't tell the whole story. Not only that but PS4 seems to have the momentum from PS3 right now. I predict a close gen like last time, but ultimately I think the PS4 will start ahead and stay ahead, especially if we are talking worldwide and not just US.

FAIL...That argument is flawed considering PS2 was released a whole one year before Xbox 1 circa 2001. Of course there was ample time to increase the hardware capabilities...PS4 and Xbox One are being released within weeks of one another...

Try again.
SuicideKing  +   657d ago
I for one will not be surprised if this rumor turns out true. I hope they at least can hit 900p. Another disappointing multi plat on the Xbox if true.
ginsunuva  +   657d ago

If resolution becomes too big a deal, M$ might pay devs to ensure all versions of a game are equal and limited to the xbone's potential.

Keep it on the down low.
