"Bit Early to Think of Xbox One as The 720p Machine & PS4 as The 1080p Machine": Divekick Dev

Iron Galaxy CEO Dave Lang talks about how the differences between the two resolutions is a red herring. (Divekick, PS4, Xbox One)

EXVirtual  +   624d ago | Well said
'When asked if there was much noticeable difference between 1080p/60 FPs and 720p/60 FPS, Lang stated that, “No, I think it’s pretty much a red herring. Most people wouldn’t be able to tell the difference.'

There is a difference. A HUGE difference. Wow! Devs are downplaying the difference between 1080p and 720p. The same devs who were b*tching and complaining about power restraints on current gen.

I understand the fact that launch games don't display the full power of any console, but the PS4 is more powerful than the XBO. It's that simple. We have proof in the form of real world performance.
Lukas_Japonicus  +   624d ago | Well said
So sick and tired of people of saying there is hardly any difference. 1080p looks crystal clear compared to 720p.

1920x1080 >>> 1280x720, you cant argue with math, sorry.

Trust me, the people who say there isn't much difference will feel pretty silly when they see 1080p for themselves. Don't any of you people watch blu rays?

So i guess there isn't much difference between 480p and 720p either, right? Lets ask the PC gamers who have been gaming at 1080p for years if there isn't much difference, see what they think.

Where are all the stealth disagreers hiding? If 1080p wasn't better than 720p why even add it as an option!? Why are full 1080p TV's more expensive than 720p TV's!? Why are PC gamers playing games in 2k - 4k resolutions!? Why have developers complained this entire generation due to fact of this generation machines not having enough power and the resolution to showcase their talent!?

Need I say more? There is a difference, and it has been a focus of discussion this entire generation.

I have a 16:10 monitor on my PC and I prefer those dimensions to a 1080p 16:9. A higher pixel height just looks better to me. I must say though that my monitor is only 22" and sometimes I will play via HDMI on my TV which is 46".

Well Said Lukas! Completely agree with you. 480p is a massive leap, just like the leap between 720p to 1080p. Also people can see it for themselfs, just change your resolution on your PC, go to 720p to 1080p (if it can) you WILL see a difference.

PC gamer here! Yes, there is absolutely a huge difference between 720p and 1080p - it's no contest. These are just multi-plat developers trying to save face with both companies.

Smart, but a little disingenuous.

For example, I have a 24" monitor, and a gtx 680. When playing Borderlands 2, for some reason the default settings were 720p when I was in the pre-game menus. Before checking the resolution, I was thinking, "wow, this doesn't look very impressive to me, I don't know where all the hype was coming from?"

Then I found the settings and changed it to 1080p...

And it was just... so beautiful :'}

HUGE, irrefutable difference. And btw, compressed YouTube videos will do NO justice whatsoever. You have to see it rendered on a MONITOR in front of you to really appreciate it!

(*differences confirmed*)

Yea I mean I love 1080p on my PS4 but even that is slightly disappointing after having a 1440p (80% more res of 1080p) monitor on my PC for the past 6 months.

Even thinking that the 720p and 1080p difference is marginal is freaking dumb.

I was actually thinking about picking up divekick for my Vita. Now I've made my decision.

1080v720 only didn't matter last gen when ps3 fbs were defending the ps3 against pc master racers, now 1080vs 720 is an extremely valid argument because the ps4 is currently showing that it can do it.

If the ps4 couldn't hold 1080p for most games then the argument wouldn't matter at all and it would be dev's fault, and $400 would be a bargain that you couldn't find a pc that could do the same etc.

The only thing that matters is that "such sony much -ps4, dat grateness"

facts and opinions alike are formulated and embellished around
"dat sonyps4ps4unchartedkzcellemoti onenginersxjaguargreatness" ;

anything else is absolutely crushed ;) but only on n4g.

The rest of the world/net seems evenly balanced, if not slightly swayed in favor of sony this time around. cause it IS more powerful. but that's not my point lol.

I exist outside of ps vs xbox argument, so I don't really care either way, but its funny to see how things that didn't matter all of a sudden matter because of who has what.

1080p is FAR superior to 720p end of story, its 1.5 times the resolution, but back in the day there was no way to convince any sony side consoler that that mattered at all. but now...NOW lol

1080P>720P who cares, that is the question...
Boody-Bandit  +   624d ago
So sad to see sellouts and PR reps trying to spin this into a positive. Do they really think people are this gullible? Maybe if they say it enough they too will believe it to be so.

Basic description of 1080p:

HDTV (1080p) - This is the ultimate high definition format, with 1080 x 1920 pixel resolution and progressive scanning. Producing 44% more pixels than it's 720p counterpart.

I find it funny that people think it is a big difference. If you have to talk about what distance you have to be at to see it, the vast majority cannot tell.

Remember all the "I can't really tell difference between DVD and blu-ray"?

Point being, even with photorealism many cannot tell difference between 480p and 1080p, let alone 720p and 1080p. That said, if resolution was that important wouldn't you all just go to PC for the best resolution, graphics and frame rate?

That said, I think the Xbox One will catch up. Easy to develop for means less room to grow.

JokesOnYou  +   624d ago
lol this is funny coming from a dev working on a ps4 game who doesn't think there's really a difference.

I actually think he's wrong and also right at the same time, there is a difference that anyone who follows games and reads comparisons to look for differences WILL NOTICE but he is 100% correct if what he means is that the other 95% of gamers who will buy either console then its true most won't notice the difference. SCENARIO: Dad takes son to gamestop sees COD Ghost running on a ps4 display unit, son wants Ghosts to play on Live with his friends, Dad buys son the game, son goes home plays Ghost with friends and never says, "damm this doesn't look like the COD Ghosts on display at gamestop." Hell remove the labels run them side by side and I bet a significant portion on n4g who claim to be so hard core would get it wrong.

That said for us the 5-10% all over gaming forums yes there is a difference and its important because we want to know that we are getting the best in terms of visuals and performance but then this developer is right again because it is indeed early and we will see 1080p going forward mostly, aside maybe from a few future gigantic open world games, with tons of things going on. I really don't know why people are so concerned when both have 1080p games at launch, logic says like every other gen that will only increase, I mean yeah if you were expecting 4k and launch games were barely hitting 1080p then yeah OK I'd wonder if we're going to meet that standard, but you could say ps4 would be closer to that lol, however neither is going to do 4k games.

I said it before and I'll say it again. If pixel count is be-all-end-all deciding factor, then why aren't PS4 fanboys playing on PCs? Maybe because there are other important factors that makes gaming important and pixel counts isn't on top of that list.

Personally for me having a superior online (dedicated servers) experiences is way more important than pixel counting.
Gohadouken  +   624d ago
"If pixel count is be-all-end-all deciding factor"

Why is that trite argument rearing it's head , like a last ditch save everytime ?

Most sane people never claimed it's the end all and even the focus on consoles .

But there is a clearcut difference in that aspect that's all . All that "you wont notice the difference" posturing wont change that , and as soon as people of any side admits that yes 720p is not the same , we'll be able to move on and discuss more important matter .

There is a difference , it's just not the most important thing ever in console gaming , and pretending it's not there is only making it stay in the spotlight .

With that kind of behavior , we'd all still be stuck on arguing about "Aladdin being better animated on genesis than on snes" , instead of enjoying our games , when the truth is quite clear .

tomh2234  +   624d ago
do you people not know that the 720p games are upscaled to 1080p that is why there is not much difference, its easy to tell on a pc because there are numerous settings to choose from. Theres no point in comparing a PC to a console its stupid.

PS4 and Xbone are going to be very hard to separate, either way there both gonna be alot of fun and new so fuck up and play em
H0RSE  +   624d ago
People aren't really arguing that one is or isn't factually clearer than the other. The argument comes from how a big a difference there is despite the numbers, and whether or not you can tell. There may be actual numbers involved, but that doesn't remove the inevitable degree of subjectivity.

Where one persons says there's a drastic difference, others may see a negligible difference whereas others still may see no difference at all. Results vary by individual, and that is where the core of the debate lies - What does it matter if one mathematically superior than the other, if you can't even tell?

To a degree, there is mental thing going on. Your brain sees "1080p" or in this case "PS4" or "next-gen" and it is automatically assuming "superior quality." You are subconsciously leading yourself to the results you want to see. It's like those skits on TV where they bring in people to a high-end restaurant and ask if they want to try expensive imported waters from around the globe, and afterwards they go on about how good they are and the differences in taste, whereas others didn't really see a difference between them, and the whole time the glasses were all the same old tap water.

Lower resolution in itself doesn't make a console a waste. Look at the 3DS; 240p and lots of great games.

I'm no apologist and as a part-PC gamer fully recognize the differences of resolutions and framerates, but I don't get why this debate is so heated. 720p, in all honestly, looks fine. Not nearly as good as 1080p, but it's perfectly presentable. What really matters is the quality of the game libraries.

If I thought resolution was such an important part of enjoying games, I'd only play PC which has better resolutions than 1080p. Compared to framerate, resolution only subtly improves gameplay in games and almost only in those that use very large distances like Battlefield and very crowded effects like Resogun. Any further enjoyment will be because of the visuals on their own merits. I'm not downplaying the fact that 1080p looks much better, but you can live without it and perfectly enjoy a game.

If anyone wants to chalk me up as an X1 fanboy, know that I have no intention of buying the console for several reasons.

If the X1 ends up having a better library than PS4, then I would definitely not blame someone for choosing it over PS4.

Some of my favorite games use pixel art and/or exist on sub-SD consoles. The PS2 was the weakest of its generation and was still the best platform. Ultimately and without question, the quality of the fundamental game designs, and collective libraries of them on the platform, are what matter and not that of image quality. I know many will, and should, agree with this.

The thing is, consoles are all pathetic standalone devices. Given that, I cannot fathom why people get this passionate about them because it is by all means arguing about which bottom of the barrel is better. Even the PS4, so far, is looking to be forced to have to choose between full 1080p and 60FPS. My PC's lower-mid range build from over 3 years ago can easily do both. Consoles are a platform investment to play games; nothing more warrants their purchase over an average quality (and much cheaper) multimedia device.

The more I hear this the more I laugh because if there wasn't any above minor difference between 720p & 1080p then we wouldn't have 1080p movies, monitors, TVs, etc.

It makes for a clearer, shaper & more pleasing image. Just like you can tell the difference between 30fps & 60fps majority of people will be able to tell the difference between 720p & 1080p.

When I first saw PS4 BF4 gameplay on gamespot's player I could tell the difference in fact my eyes took a bit to adjust to it. Just like I can tell the difference between a 720p movie & a 1080p one. Both are equally important & no one will tell me otherwise. Unfortunately we don't get to pick between the two on consoles as devs choose that doing development but when one console has quite an advantage in res I don't see why the media & some devs choose to downplay it.
Mike134nl  +   624d ago
There is a differece between 720 and 1080 p, visual differemce isn't huge. It however does require quit a lot more hardware resources.

Ofcourse it also depends on the size and viewing distance of the television.

I have watched Blu-Ray for years and I know their is a huge difference between 720p and 1080p, I hate watching movies on Sky in 720p because I would rather get the same movies on Blu-Ray. I was excited to see the consoles reach 1080p because I bought a 2013 LED TV in 42 inch for next-gen, but watching the X1 v PS4 comparison videos of Ghosts and BF4 they almost look identical. Their are differences yes, but nothing that blows 720p out of the water.

True that:

" Resolution affects potential for better visuals, but it doesn't instantly make a game look better. You could easily make a 720p game that looks better than a 1080p game if you spend enough time on the effects.

That same game would look better at 1080p if the system can handle it, but that doesn't mean 1080p instantly makes a game look better. No.

You're better off maxing out effects at a lower resolution than cranking up the resolution and having the game look bland or have performance issues.
H0RSE  +   624d ago
It is closer to say that there "can be" a big difference, rather than flat out saying there "is" a difference. Claims that there is a clear difference between the 2 resolutions, isn't completely true.
There are factors that play a part in the difference or benefit people will get from 1080p vs 720p, such as screen resolution, screen size and distance from the screen.

To be able to detect differences between resolutions, the screen must be large enough and you must sit close enough. Another factor that almost always never gets mentioned, is whether or not the person has 20/20 vision, since can also play a factor. Also you would actually need a TV capable of 1080p resolution, but that goes without saying.

Here is a link to an article that explains when and if 1080p actually makes a difference - http://carltonbale.com/1080...

Here is a pic of the "distance vs screen size chart" in the article - http://s3.carltonbale.com/r...

There is a tool at the end of the article, that lets you put in your TV's screen size and calculate the effective distance before benefits start becoming visible.

For instance, for a 50" screen (a size I see mentioned a lot)) you would need to sit 10' away or closer to benefit from 720p, and 7' or closer to benefit from 1090p. I know a lot of people sit more than 7" away from their TV, regardless of screen size.

As the article says:

"If you are a videophile with a properly setup viewing room, you should definitely be able to notice the resolution enhancement that 1080p brings. However, if you are an average consumer with a flat panel on the far wall of your family room, you are not likely to be close enough to notice any advantage."

One final thought is this. The debate over 720p vs 1080p when speaking about X1 vs PS4, isn't entirely accurate to begin with, since we aren't actually comparing 720p to 1080p. We are comparing 1080p upscaled to 1080p native.

you don't have any real world proof because you don't have a real world Xbox one that's been tested against a real world ps4. so your claims will wait until both have been thoroughly broken down,examined, and tested in the real world. paper specs aren't everything and anonymous devs don't count (I say that because they aren't foolish enough to say anything about the console ahead of schedule because of that binding contract that forbids them to do so). but Nov 22 will soon be here and we will no longer have to speculate and assume things that we really don't have a real world clue about. and with all that said, GAME ON WITH WHATEVER SYSTEM YOU SPEND YOUR HARD EARNED DOLLARS ON :-)

U stood next to a 720 screen next to a 1080 screen recently? I doubt it. The difference is nion unnoticeable from one another if u are anymore than 1.5 metres away. The eye cant pick up the difference at that distance. Goes to show how petty this whole argument has become, people arguing over things where no-one can honestly tell the difference.

I have to wonder though if we put xb1 cod next to ps4 cod and didn't tell which is which and see who thinks they look the same or different. Answer?

Its been done to stop the fanboyism, if they aren't told which is which they cant tell u which platform its running on.

It's not that most people can't tell the difference, it's that most people don't care. If you only have one system, and that system is 720p, you won't have anything to compare it to. Then again, 720 upscaled to 1080p does make it harder for people to be able to tell the difference.

IF you think about it, the xbox one is the PERFECT 720p machine. It can run any game 720p at 60 fps. But with the way it was designed, there are to many bottlenecks created when in 1080p. And as of now, the only games that are 1080p, are sports games and forza. And you can't pretend like 1080p isn't more than double 720p

Competition? You do know that Divekick is a Sony console exclusive... right?
SpinalRemains138  +   624d ago
I have Divekick on Vita but I read the article and see they are trying to get the game on Xbox One.

Damage control
Selling out

Call it whatever, but the idea that ppl cannot tell the difference is just a lie. Its vastly different. Its noticeable and clearer.

Anand Shimpi, AnandTech( reputed tech site)

For the first time the guts of both the Xbox and PlayStation are very similar - their processor and memory hardware vary in performance but not capabilities. Gone are the days when Sony's machine was substantially more difficult to program for than Microsoft's. In fact, the PlayStation 4 has appreciably "MORE GRAPHICS HORSEPOWER" under its hood than the Xbox One, THERE's NO WAY AROUND THAT FACT". Both firms have licensed the same GPU (graphics processing unit) architecture, but Sony's chip has 1152 "cores" compared to Microsoft's 768. Microsoft runs its cores at a slightly higher speed, but the maths works out to Sony having about a "40%" peak potential graphics performance advantage.

People thinking there is no power difference are misterx's minions lol.

These people who say they can't tell the difference between 720p and 1080p need to get their eyes checked out.

Just like colour blindness, these people don't know they have it until they take a test for it. In this case it's 1080p blindness or green goggles better known as moneyhattinintittis.

Even on a windows desktop you can easily tell the difference between the two resolutions . Those claiming it's unoticeable are just refusing to see it or in full PR mode .

Is it the main deciding factor ? Maybe not , but it's a pretty clear difference

Most of yous are full of sh@t!

Let me educate yous:to see the difference between 720p and 1080p you need to be within 6ft of a 50 inch tv.,and even if your within this distance a good upscaler will make the topic pretty much irrelevant.

Enjoy watching pornhub with your dualshock 'joypad' in 1080p

So you have a 720p TV then since it doesn't matter do you go down to Best Buy and educate the poor souls wasting their money on 1080p tvs.. and your saying its all a big racket OK world stop at 720p UKdude says we are all uneducated 1080p isn't real he's here to save us from ourselves

Waiting for a point there . Who the hell stick close to his own tv when given the choice ?

And stop making up stuff either way . 40" at 2 meter of distance is more than enough to notice lots of differences

WARNING: The following comment may offend idiot MS fanboys

The lies and BS you guys spew is really quite remarkable.

Let me educate you. A 125% increase in pixels is in no way what so ever a minor difference and an upscaler is definitely not going to make that enormous gap irrelevant.

I could go on and carefully explain why you're utterly wrong, but not doubt you would just call me names in your reply without having anything close to resembling a logical mature argument, so I won't bother.

You MS apologists have become incredibly insecure and rabid the last few months, I guess because of all the bad xbone news, but claiming the difference between 720p and 1080p is barely noticeable is absolutely laughable. Really is a new low for you guys.

Enjoy playing your inferior multiplats.

Lol. Expect xbox fans to come and defend saying that tools are not mature, esram is not fully utilized and will take time.

I laugh at these people. Weren't these xbox fans themselves saying that esram is nothing new and it won't be a problem when the rumor broke out that esram is a pain for devs. Such hypocrites.

i agree 720p is so 2006....

had so many tvs cable of 1080p since 2006 its silly and now i have a console that can make use of what now is really cheap to buy..

Determining power of both systems with a few examples of 720p, 900p, 1080p with out long term research and facts to back it up is just baffling. Most gamer saw what happened when both Xbox 360 and ps3 launched compared to years later. Lets see a few years of actual games and give better conclusion of power when we actually have more data to back it up and when developers actually take the time to use strengths and weaknesses, specifically, real long term testing a few years down the line of actual games that show off the power of both not developers who scrambled to get games running at launch.

Understandable as far as the comparisons when it came to the Xbox360 and PS3 the differences where alot smaller when looked at! What being discussed here is a lot more telling, we're talking a full resolution setting gap! What this in turn bring into play is a obvious Hardware/Power difference! Those thinking otherwise are fooling themselves.
Priest88  +   624d ago
The xbox not being capable of 1080p/60fps is a blatant lie.. One of the best looking games this launch overal between PS4 and XB1 is in my opinion Forza 5 and they 'seem' to be locked to 60FPS (Then again Killzone looked like that as well)

The difference is very real though, no reason to downplay it. (Hardware/dedicated upscaling tech does not just stretch pixels mind you, counting the difference in native pixel count does not apply here..)

Is it permanent? most likely not, from early reviews it seems te PS4 struggles to maintain even 40-50 FPS on Killzone MP. (SP is locked at 30-40)

What does this mean? Both consoles are probably going to stick to 720p if they want to feature full 60 FPS.

I would be inclined to agree if it weren't for the fact that Turn 10 dropped the ball when they said every XBone dev was already using 100% of the console's power, and that even their game ( a racing title no less) wouldn't even be running 1080p 60 FPS if it weren't for the cloud. Says a lot about the actual console hardware.

Ok then . let's try pretending you'd stick with 720p on a 22-24" pc monitor at 50 cm from you then .

Or that you dont already notice the difference between 720p and 1080p even on mobile phones .

And FYI it's 40-42 the minimum recommended size not 55" . And it's just that a recommended minimum for your field of vision , not a pre requisite

Gohadouken  +   624d ago
I guess you care about my setup but i still dont see your point . No one sits close to a TV by choice

Fine i'm usually sitting on a 46" Plasma at 4-4.5 meters . Wich mean i'll always see the difference . As i did when plugging the pc or any device

And i'll still notice a difference , even if not the optimal range at 50 cm of my 27" pc screen .

Again , care to pretend you you'd use any 24" screen at 1280×720 up close if given a choice ? The whole pc world will laugh at you , for good reason . I'm sure they'd love you telling them they dont see squat when switching résolutions at close range .

I agree that xb1 or ps4 720p games can still be very enjoyable , but let's not mitigate it being unfortunate by lying about 720 vs 1080p différences being innexistant and invisible to the eye

1080 720 1080 pixel pixel well well what will we do when both systems both run at 1080. PS4 and XB1 will both run native 1080 soon on all games. I was lucky and got a XB1 FREE!!! Soon I will own a PS4 as well. The biggest thing is games people!! So who's gonna have the game changer title this GEN. XB1 came out swinging with Titanfall, but were's the PS4 revolutionary title prospect? I don't want COD Battlefield Killzone Halo 20. I want new games like Destiny. The more everyone worries about pixels the longer both systems can keep feeding us this remade game fodder. And I'm done!!!

Hercules189  +   624d ago
I've got 20/20 vision and if both consoles are hidden behind a box and had both versions of Bf4 side by side, I will have a hard time finding a difference when its in motion unless I have a magnifying glass. Its not like we're comparing 360p against 4k.
TheObserver  +   623d ago
Ha! 20/20 is the cut off mark for the visually impaired. Normal people have 20/16-20/12. You clearly need your eyes checked.


". The significance of the 20/20 standard can best be thought of as the lower limit of normal or as a screening cutoff. When used as a screening test subjects that reach this level need no further investigation, even though the average visual acuity of healthy eyes is 20/16 to 20/12."

A lot of current gen games look bad at 720p because of bad or no anti-aliasing. I'm sure by the end of next gen, you'll see that a lot of games will be 720p on both consoles, but the games will look photo-realistic with excellent anti-aliasing.
