1080p is Huge, Says Need for Speed: Rivals Dev

Gameranx: "A developer behind Need for Speed: Rivals has come out to tell the fans how important 1080p really is to games." (Need For Speed: Rivals, PC, PS4, Xbox One)

According to M$ not, lol

"1080p is something that's really huge for us."

Just to clarify.

But yeah, it is for me too. Obviously gameplay trumps all but resolution isn't something to scoff at, especially when you have a gaming PC to compare current gen consoles too.
sigfredod  +   653d ago
exactly my point, huge for me, for the gamers, for the developers but not for M$
thereapersson  +   653d ago
The way the technology is going, I don't think it will take very long before all PS4 games are in 1080p (unless the developer chooses an artistic route regarding resolution).

@thereapersson

i disagree, i think with games pushing better graphics (shaders, textures, effects..etc) later in the consoles cycle it will be harder for this consoles to hit the 1080p benchmark specially if they are also pushing high frame rates.
Axonometri  +   653d ago
Exactly. Nintendo has a legitimate excuse. What is M$ excuse? Kinect. Yet, Kinect focus is on operating the OS and where are the Kinect games for Xbox One?

Decision making at Xbox has been nightmarish.
Sarcasm  +   653d ago
^You guys do realize the only confirmed non-1080p game on PS4 is Battlefield 4 right?

1080p on the PS4 will be the norm.

1080p in a racing game isn't that impressive.. Making a racing game that feels nex-gen is.. No racing game for the last few years has made me pick it up and say "wow this is amazing I gotta have this!".

1080p "IS" Next Gen!
u got owned  +   653d ago
Nope, lets say you have Uncharted 1 playing at 1080p, that doesn't make it next gen. Resolution is just a small part of the equation.

A console not capable of standard 1080p does not inspire me with confidence it is next gen

Let me fix that for you.

"1080p IS Last Gen"

There... thats better.
dirigiblebill  +   653d ago
Except the article this borrows from is about the Xbox One version --> http://www.oxm.co.uk/66016/...

Need for Speed is native 1080p on The One.
GmIsOnPt360  +   653d ago
and frame rate not important to Sony eh....
OsirisBlack  +   653d ago
I really hope you are not talking about COD which is IW fault and they admitted as much by stating they will patch it to optimize the game. Let's see if they patch Dead Rising 3's 720p and below 20fps dips.
misterssippi  +   653d ago
You do understand this game is native 1080p on both systems? Microsoft is correct, gameplay is the most important factor. Graphics are icing on the cake. Sony is now set to focus on indie titles (which Microsoft has been doing since 2005), and most of those indie titles will end up being 480p...so I guess 1080p isn't that huge after all.

" and most of those indie titles will end up being 1080p"

FIXED

Till now most indie titles announced for the PS4 run at 1080P with some titles like Resogun running at 60FPS.

1080p isn't huge for me. Nice but not huge. What if a game isn't 1080p? Does that make it a crappy game?
GamerXD  +   653d ago
Yeah. I'm lucky I'm getting PS4 this friday. Let the pixels flow through me.
CaEsAr-  +   653d ago
I've to wait another 2 weeks or maybe one month :( I hate you now
Patrick  +   653d ago
lol... I dont know why, but after the frown, you suddenly turned into GLaDOS from portal and that's how I read your comment.
TomahawkX  +   653d ago
Embrace the pixels, let them flow through you. Only then will you see the true power of next-gen.
MasterCornholio  +   653d ago
Im glad that a developer believes that 1080P is important.

Unlike those other guys.......
cyhm3112  +   653d ago
lol, so sad that the definite truth that 1080p is so much better than 720p is so hard to be accepted. It is like back in history when most people still believed the earth is not round but in fact it is. Sad, isn't it?
arjman  +   653d ago
"1080p is suddenly huge because the next gen consoles will be outputting it" FTFY
obliteratorFTW  +   653d ago
Sorry but this developer is hugely mistaken, 1080p is not important and is inferior to 720p, atleast that's what I came to know from developers here in n4g.
evilsooty  +   653d ago
Been playing every game I have in 1080p without trouble since 2009 when I got into PC gaming again.

Wow, these consoles are so next-gen! :)

BitbyDeath  +   652d ago
So nextgen that most PC games are still 1080P max.
evilsooty  +   651d ago
Err, no. The majority of recent PC games will run happily at 1600p all the way to 4K if you have the GPUs to handle it.

1080p has largely become the minimum standard in PC gaming so it strikes me as strange that these next-gen consoles are struggling to reach even that.

Hope you realise the XB1 is running 1080p too with this game.
cyhm3112  +   653d ago
but the graphics has been hugely downgraded to achieve this
dirigiblebill  +   652d ago
Nah, I've seen them side by side. They're identical.
Hicken  +   652d ago
But Microsoft says 1080p doesn't matter. Hell, I seem to recall YOU saying it, too. So it can just run 900p on XB1, right?
kingduqc  +   652d ago
1080p is "huge"

from 2006 and 2013 console gamer didn't care games where not 1080p or even getting past 720p, now that the ps4 can do on some games in 1080p it's the best thing ever, nagging even about it...

Fucking two faced faggots. Still years behind and acting like it's a big deal.
