dedicatedtogamers1597d ago

But I'm sure we'll see a slew of articles claiming "you can barely see the difference between 1080p and 720p"

TrueJerseyDevil1597d ago

yea and "the power of the cloud will make it a diverse zombie AI" lol

I_am_Batman1597d ago (Edited 1597d ago )

To be fair no one mentioned the X1 resolution so it could be 1080p too.

MRHARDON1597d ago

Lastly "We are pushing each console to its limits"

aquamala1597d ago

console players have been telling PC gamers that the last 7 years, they can suddenly tell the difference now

someoneagain1597d ago

@ aquamala

But only up to 1080p. Anything higher is totally unnoticeable.

mikeslemonade1597d ago (Edited 1597d ago )

I_am_Batman ^

Samething happened with BF4. PS4 was 900p and and no word for X1. Then they said it was 720p.

Long generation for X1 owners. I suggest y'all get out of the comments section and go play your games in 720p upscaled to 1080p.

Computersaysno1597d ago (Edited 1597d ago )

I think it is unlikely it is also 1080p on Xbox One, not least of all because it was not mentioned....

It'll probably be sub 1080p, maybe 900p again or something like it

assdan1597d ago

There's basically no difference... if you ignore more than half the pixels! But it doesn't matter anyways, soon with the power of the cloud magically being able to do cloud computing better than anything on earth can do, every person with an xbox one will basically have 3.

ground_beef1597d ago

Ok first off it's proven by researchers in Pakistan, that 720p is better than 1080p, healthier too. Secondly, microsofts cloud is currently being tested on the new production line of stealth jet planes. According to reports, microsofts cloud could support stealth technology on these planes at a distance of 15500 km2. So I really don't know what these Sony fanboys are complaining about.

Skip_Bayless1597d ago

lol at a 3rd world country and talking about stealth planes

Bennibop1597d ago

I_am_batman have you learnt nothing from the last few months? No mention of resolution when connect to x1 is usually the developer trying to hide it is not 1080p! It seems that people have got their head in the sand.

TheGreatAndPowerful1597d ago (Edited 1597d ago )

" It is unclear what the native resolution is for the Xbox One version of the game."

@Bennibop: "I_am_batman have you learnt nothing from the last few months? No mention of resolution when connect to x1 is usually the developer trying to hide it is not 1080p! It seems that people have got their head in the sand."

Maybe you should read my comment again. I wasn't saying wether it'll be 1080p or not because that would be pure sceculation at that point. Until the resolution is confirmed I'll give them the benefit of the doubt that's all.

Facts > speculation.

Jeebus1596d ago


Get it? Unclear? Resolution?


TheXgamerLive1596d ago

LOL, yea but like every multi so far Xbox One graphics will look better, LOL.
Better resolution not better graphics. Which would you rather have?

Sarcasm1596d ago

You can barely see a difference between 1080p and 720p. 30 feet away.

GrandTheftZamboni1596d ago

We'll have to see when Lens of Truth compare the two versions. Oh, wait, they must have been on vacation since PS4 and Xbone came out. "Lens of Truth. Just telling the truth." lol

badz1491596d ago

the resolution for the Xbone version is unclear? why? too blurry to tell? XD

tee_bag2421596d ago

These consoles are both a disappointment. They should both have hardware capable of 1080p @ 60fps no exceptions. It's an even sadder story for the X1.
60fps is a luxury worth striving for.

Perjoss1596d ago

"To be fair no one mentioned the X1 resolution so it could be 1080p too."

Could be, but from what's being going on so far in terms of launch titles and resolution not very likely.

J-R1596d ago

Dying Light will be sub 1080p on XB1. If both versions were 1080p they would have said so.

Okay it runs 1080p, but does it run 60fps? 30fps?
People need to really stop getting on this hype of 1080p!! 1080p!!! you didn't care of that last gen but now your precious sex buddy console can do it you'll hype it for your fanboyish pride. I would want a game thats runs smoother instead of looking clearer. I'll go play my PS4 and Wii U for the games, while people will play their systems for the resolution.

Malphite1597d ago

People don't need to stop. 720p might have been ok for 2005-2006 consoles but 1080p is a must for this gen considering you're stuck with them for the next 5-6 at least.

60fps is nice but more of a luxury thing. It's not needed for most of the games. I'll take 1080p at 30fps over 720p at 60fps in most cases.

Triforce_Germaine1597d ago

A real gamer cares about how the game plays, not how it looks. Just sayin'. Saying you want it 1080p at 30fps and not 720p at 60fps is basically saying i want the game to look better then it plays. So yes people need to stop whoring over resolution and start worrying about how the game plays.

BitbyDeath1597d ago

Most people didn't have 1080p TV's when last gen started so it was a non-issue

marioJP871596d ago

Sorry, but gamers have been caring about 1080P since the whole last gen.

Malphite1596d ago (Edited 1596d ago )

What qualifies you to define what a real gamer cares about again? A game that runs at 30fps and above is enough for most games to provide a fluid gameplay expirience. 60fps is only needed for fast paced games. But even then a stable framerate is more important than a high unstable one.

As someone who invests quite a lot of money in my PC I've had both, high resolution and high framerate most of the time. But as consoles are designed to be affordable for more people gamers have to make little compromises. And you can believe me when I tell you that the difference between a native 1080p and a 720p upscaled to 1080p is really a big deal if you have a proper HD TV. 720p is simply unacceptable in this day and age.

MetaReapre1596d ago

People care about resolution now because it is the next step in the generation, last gen was able to make it to 1080p, so evidently this needs to be a standard now. The 60fps is an added benifit to this generation and is something not done in previous generations of consoles therefore it won't be a staple in most console gamers minds. Every generation needs to be better than the last, the fact that some game CAN be 60fps rather than 30 is a step up just to have that ability on console, but if you don't have all games this gen at least 1080p that's a bit of a step back (at least for the triple A games). If we don't get on console makers' backs about something last gen could easily do then those makers will try to get away with less in each gen and console gaming will be halted in progress. (and my peeve against microsoft right now is that they think adding in a bunch of other functions that your other common house hold items can do will make gaming better... I don't think so...)

Back-to-Back1596d ago

900p upscaled if XBONE is lucky. More than likely it will be a technical mess just like dead rising.

Lior1597d ago

What about Xbox 720p?

Vegetarianshark1597d ago

Wouldn't be surprised if it was 720p 30 fps just like Dead Rising 3.

emad-E-three1597d ago

actually Dead Rising 3 was under 30fps ;)

Ulf1597d ago (Edited 1597d ago )

I wouldn't be surprised if the XBox One was a little lower rez, but it'll likely be better than 720p. I would wager that the choppiness in the video will be lessened, or eliminated, on the XB1, however.

I sincerely doubt the PS4's GPU is the cause of the struggling 30 Hz framerate, from the footage in the video.

Walker1597d ago

So Xbone version will run on 720 or maximum 900p with frame drops !

AngelicIceDiamond1597d ago

@Walker This article isn't talking about X1. But like always the Xbox version just gets bashed unprovoked in a insecure fashion. Its like every fanboy here is insecure its crazy.

People bash because they're insecure. Insecurity, insecurity, insecurity that's EXACTLY what it comes down to.

hellzsupernova1597d ago

I feel like the sony fans have been bashed for the last 8 years and now they have the better console with more to look forward to it is 8 years of emotions coming out, xbox fans are getting what they deserve

SlyFoxC1597d ago

i agree. it was okay and fine when xbox players bashed sony players last gen...

and now its all insecure this whatever that.

just play the game and shut up.

Magicite1597d ago

this is the best reply xbot can make?

AngelicIceDiamond1597d ago

@Nova I don't about whole 8 years of bashing. N4G wasn't a better time then than it is now. Hope you realize this site is fanboy site in general. Doesn't matter who takes over it doesn't make it right.

So all the bashing is because Xbox fans deserve it. Well what if one day this site turns back to a MS fanboy site they'll do and say the exact same thing.

"Sony fans are getting what they deserve." Come on man its a vicious cycle that's needs to stop.

Am I the only one that sees this? I'm the only one that's once peace and change on here.

@Sly "i agree. it was okay and fine when xbox players bashed sony players last gen..."

No, it was not ok. Why talk crap and belittle your fellow gamer. When was any of this ok?

"just play the game and shut up."

Exactly, tell everyone in here to just play, enjoy the game and shut up.

Why o why1597d ago

People taking it waaaaay too seriously. Its a bit of banter. Without it n4g would be a little dead. People can't take a bit of ribbing. Its only gaming and nobdody here loses any sleep. Everybody has a little fanboy in em....lets not fight mother nature

Prime1571597d ago

Look, that is really an ignorant conclusion. Nothing to do with insecurity, just bewilderment that people spent $100 bucks more for that.

I'm not saying Xbox is a bad thing, just saying Google tv and Apple tv are better. Ported games don't look as good.

Speaking of ports, they were so lazy they ported win8 over...

The_Sneauxman1597d ago

"hellzsupernova x
I feel like the sony fans have been bashed for the last 8 years and now they have the better console with more to look forward to it is 8 years of emotions coming out, xbox fans are getting what they deserve"

This man speaks the truth. I lurked on n4g between 2006-2010 and the amount of Sony bashing was rediculous. If memory serves me correctly I do believe the PS3 has outsold the 360 to date.

TheRealHeisenberg1596d ago

@ the above.

Don't even try it. I browsed through N4G daily during that period and the Sony fanboy trolls were out in full force just like the MS fanboy trolls were. The only difference now is that the Sony fanboy numbers are much larger. Many of you keep resorting to revisionist history in a weak attempt to justify childish behavior.

MrSwankSinatra1596d ago

lololol didn't you xbots do that to the sony fans because multiplats looked better on xbox 360. if you ask mr ya'll asked to get bashed. spade for a spade....

Ulf1597d ago (Edited 1597d ago )

There hasn't been a single crossplat where the XB1's framerate is lower than the PS4's. That's not a surprise, given the timid approach devs are using with the XB1.

Gremdude1596d ago

Please see BF 4 comparison. Frame rates are higher on PS4 than Xbox One. And yes PS4 operates at higher resolution.

georgenancy1597d ago

business as usual for the x one

Pascalini1597d ago

Better textures on xb1 confirmed

MasterCornholio1597d ago

How are lower resolution textures better?

bjmartynhak1597d ago

Because it was... sarcasm?

b00mFargl31597d ago

who said anything about x1 resolutions?

Angels37851597d ago (Edited 1597d ago )

I love makes me feel like I win even more every time someone uses it......

That they have to MAKE SOMETHING order for them to be right...its just hilarious and it feels awesome. I got someone so flustered that their panties went so far up their crack its messing with their head......GOD I FEEL GREAT!

BTW wanna cite digital foundry for your claims? oh thats right all next gen games that have a resolution difference look better on ps4....... according to...EVERY professional

Kayant1597d ago

Right like in every other multi plat game /s

What you mean is magical upscaler to sharpen & add crushed blacks.

You, MPOG and misterx provide great laughter once in a while.

OT - It's most likely 720p or 900p.

PSN-JeRzYzFyNeSt1597d ago

stupidest comment of the day… is there a way to make it 0 bubbles?

Infamous2981597d ago

permanet ban might be the solution.

FITgamer1597d ago

@Infamous We'll all know that won't happen, i mean look at Belking. He's been bubbled down at least 10x with one bubble and is still able to make his delusional/trolling comments.

pyramidshead1597d ago

Confirmed for blind apologist lol. All future comments nullified.

Enjoy the over sharpened, jaggy, crushed black, vibrant pop of next gen Pascalini ;).

stavrami-mk21597d ago

so far 65 people don't understand sarcasm ^^

GarrusVakarian1596d ago

If you knew who he was, you would know he isn't being sarcastic.

GarrusVakarian1596d ago

Nowhere in the article does it say that, you should be worried why it only mentions the PS4's 1080p resolution and not the X1's, 720p or 900p confirmed?. But of course, you being you will just find an excuse as to why the X1 version is better.

Every multiplat will look better on PS4, for the entirety of next gen. Get used to it, because they are the majority of the games you will play.
