So 1080p/60fps for PS4, at least.Nice.
Figured they would lowball it to 30fps

Well they did say that 1080p @ 60fps will be "absolutely doable" on the PS4, so fingers crossed.

Either way, the game looks good so far, and im not even a fan of zombie games. Its the addition of parkour that makes this interesting for me.

1080p 60fps will be cake for the PS4.
SonyMSnintendoPC  +   796d ago
@mewhy32- Yeah because there are just sooo many games on PS4 that are 1080p 60fps, right?
thorstein  +   796d ago
1080 60 was shown at VGX on a PS4.

Not sure where that would change.
RedDevils  +   796d ago
With Xbone in the way, there noway it could achieve that with this game, they probably lower the resolution and the frame rates, so to make sure both system look equal
deno  +   796d ago
Great point. PS3 does Gt in 1080p so I don't see why the new machines can't do.
UltimateMaster  +   796d ago

1080p/60fps for Ps4 and X1 targeted...they think they wont have any problem to reach it
electricone85  +   796d ago
Don't try to twist his words. 1080p/60fps is the target is for both systems.
edgeofsins  +   796d ago

Yes. And according to what they have said previously they said that 1080p/60fps is "absolutely doable" on PS4. So basically they meant the target is for X1 as PS4 has already reached it.
Justjoined123  +   796d ago

well you just responded to his claim of twisting words by twisting "absolutely doable" into "its done". GJ!
I hope ps4 is lead platform or pc.
ZodTheRipper  +   796d ago
lol you should consider 'game development 101'
FrigidDARKNESS  +   796d ago
Actually i think the x1 might be the lead platform. It was shown exclusively behind closed doors running on X1 hardware at Gamescom 2013.
DoesUs  +   796d ago
It's not lead platform, sorry. Just to clear that up for you. Don't want you getting your info all mixed up.
AngelicIceDiamond  +   796d ago
So both are hitting the high priorities. And they are on there way on doing so.

@electricone85 Exactly don't spin or twist this. Both are gonna be 1080P 60 frames. End of story

Anyway I don't know if I can play this by myself I hope this game has some sort of Co-op or something.

Why didn't they say 1080p 60fps on both XB1 and PS4 then?
I liked the VGX footage and it looked damn good running on PS4...
solar  +   796d ago
should be a "target", should be the "standard".
Pope_Kaz_Hirai_II  +   796d ago
So this game must take nothing to run if it gets to 1080p on xbone.
Kornholic  +   796d ago
But if they won't be able to achieve 1080p/60fps on PS4, I'd rather have 60fps/720p than 30fps/1080p.

Damn... not good news at all. This clearly means the PS4 version will be dummy down to get the Xbox720... i mean XboxOne version remotely close to 1080p and running at 60FPS. I still have this game on my radar for the PS4.
XiSasukeUchiha  +   796d ago

Dewitt  +   796d ago
I like how you can tell what devs can do with a platform, these guys aren't rushing their title like 3/4th of launch titles. You will see a lot more max resolution games down the line for XB1.

Don't entertain the ignorant.
staticdash22  +   796d ago
Infinity Ward couldn't hit 1080p, DICE couldn't hit 900p, Ubisoft couldn't hit 1080p

No reason for me to think they will hit 1080p native anytime soon. Sure, devs tools will get better, but it will never catch PS4. I'm sure they've come to terms already.

yeah,assassins creed and bf are lot demanding in terms of raw power but were still close to ps4 and people must also know that most devs recieved their xb1 dev kits after the e3 ,where those people were having ps4 from long time and also must know that m$ also rushed dev kits providing them incomplete sofwares for development which caused many development problems ,but now devs belive that they can get same graphics on xb1 like they get on ps4 and article above is a proof.
UnholyLight  +   796d ago

Thank you, because that is exactly what is going to happen. The launch games were especially rushed on the X1 platform.
Back-to-Back  +   796d ago
If COD cant do 1080/60 on your console, then no game on the face of the Earth ever will. COD is still being run on one of the oldest active engines to date. Maybe if those cheap pricks at Activision would spend some money on r&d they could make a better game.
ambientFLIER  +   796d ago
Back-to-Black COD Ghosts had issues running on top end PCs that ran Battlefield 4 just fine on max settings. Obviously the engine was rushed and not well optimized. Infinity Ward even said they got their X1 kits late and didn't have as much time with it.

Forza is 1080/60 and a few announced games will be soon...

Nice try, though.

greenlantern2814  +   796d ago
yes, your comment makes sense games will look better as devs get more time with the systems. Because the same thing will happen on PS4 as well.
JeffGUNZ  +   796d ago

Sony_Fan  +   795d ago
Probably 900p and some subpar framerate on ps4.
curtis92  +   796d ago
Skeptical....... but if they can hit those numbers, awesome. One of them will probably prove more challenging than the other.
MasterCornholio  +   796d ago
Well at least they are trying to get 1080P and 60FPS on both platforms.
JackISbacK  +   796d ago
yeah you are right ,they are not like infinity word which said.
infinity wordz:- "oh time outz time outz itz 720pz on xb1 because we leftz no timez ,we want to pisszzz our gamez aszz soonzz aszz we canz and cantz take any delayz for optimisationzzz soryz xb1zzz userzzz"

techlad studio:-"we belive in both next gen consoles and are targetting 1080p 60fps on both consoles and belive we can get them on both consoles its a big thumps up for 1080p 60fps on both consoles."

yeah past mistakes can be from m$ for providing faulty software to devs ,whcih stated by many devs at early stage of development but now things are changing and realising both consoles are having their own positive sides.
goood work techland and i'am also expecting this from
cd project after their comment of "xb1 is more easy to develop and we can get same performance on both next gen consoles".

MidnytRain  +   796d ago
I wonder how much devs are going to sacrifice to get their games running at 60 frames and 1080p.
I_am_Batman  +   796d ago
Depends on the game. I guess In most cases the majority of devs will sacrifice framerate first.
ambientFLIER  +   796d ago
In my opinion, 900P/60FPS is better than 1080P/30FPS.

Ryse proved that a well done game will be gorgeous in 900P and you won't be able to tell the difference.
#5.2 (Edited 796d ago ) | Agree(2) | Disagree(9) | Report | Reply
I_am_Batman  +   796d ago
You will be able to tell the difference. What they did with Ryse was lowering the resolution to be able to improve the quality of the lighting among other things. So yeah they improved the overall visuals of the game. But at the same quality 1080p will always look better than 900p.

And your preference of 900p at 60fps over 1080p at 30fps is a weird example. 900p at 60fps is actually harder to achieve than 1080p at 30fps. It pushes around 50% more pixels per second.
edgeofsins  +   796d ago
And he disagreed with Bruce Wayne because he didn't like being wrong.
MidnytRain  +   796d ago
Ditto, Batman. Just look at BF4 on PS4. There's a clear difference between 900p and 1080p.

hi xBONE fan.
TRD4L1fe  +   796d ago
Just make the game fun to play and a really good story please
staticdash22  +   796d ago
So that means 1080p 30fps on PS4 and 900p on Xbox One.

Only sports and racing games have hit 1080p on X1. No reason for me to think that will magically change for an open world game. Essentially seeing how great AC4 runs at native 1080p with a rock solid 30fps on PS4, this is absolutely do able.

*see digital foundry vs assassins creed 4, 1080p on ps4*
MadSientist89  +   796d ago
thanks for the lulz.. all these games so far are just slammed on the xbone without any real optimiziation, you tell me what is so hardware demanding about call of duty or assasins creed that xbox cant do 1080p.
JeffGUNZ  +   796d ago
Stop. Just stop. You are just speculating at best. This is a different developer. Every game/studio should be take differently. Using games like Assassins creed and BF4 are pathetic, since they are nothing more then COD spawns of year after year hash pumping out with no real innovation. I remember when Battlefield games would release with amazing noticeable upgrades, now it's just like COD, no innovation. At least COD is fun.

Also, look at Ryse. Perfect example 1080p and polygon count isn't the end all of graphics. Ryse is the best looking game released for either console. Sure, the gameplay isn't the best, but typical crytek.


Watchout everyone, we have a cool kid here. You must hate COD to be a REAL GAMERZS!!!! COD is more fun then BF4, the proof is in the pudding, it sells more and the average gamer prefers it. But I know, I know, if it doesn't have SONY written on it, then it's garbage. Grow up Staticdash22, you're so glaringly onesided it's sickening.

edgeofsins  +   796d ago

Watch out everyone. Another opinionated person trying to argue with opinions and misinformed "facts".

Ryse is 900p. I'll take a more vibrant game with more varied objects, more dynamic scenes, and less scripted scenes at 1080p then Ryse. Technically speaking Ryse is not the best looking game.
JeffGUNZ  +   795d ago

Please tell me what misinformed facts I just presented? Ryse is the best looking game on next gen consoles that have been released. KZ is right next to it. I never said anything about gameplay or the mechanics of the game, just visuals. The general consensus from gaming sites agree that Ryse looks the best at the moment. Sure, that will change with the division and whatever game naughty dog creates, but right now, Ryse looks great.

"technically speaking ryse is not the best looking game". Stop with that nonsense. We know it's 900p, but 180p more isn't going to make it far more superior. It's funny, you say I have misinformed facts and opinions and you claim that statement. Yikes, try learning a little more about what makes games look good, it's not all about 1080p. Sure, that would make it even better, but at the moment, it is still viewed by most respected gaming sites as the best LOOKING game. Gameplay, eh, not so much.

@Unholy_One Lmaoooooooooo I'm sorry even Polygon said KzSF looks better than Ryse So what are you talking about.
JeffGUNZ  +   796d ago
No one said any games released now. I have been a strong advocate to state that a lot of these games were forced and both PS4 and X1 were rushed for release. E3 will show 1080P games for both consoles and show the power of each console. Look at The Division. Games that are not being ported or rushed for release show what these consoles are capable of.
GiggMan  +   796d ago
@Unholy, My point is, to disagree with someone who stated a fact as silly. I said nothing about Ryse at all (which makes you just as silly).

The OP that I replied to stated "Only sports and racing games have hit 1080p on X1" Seems kike a fact as of now...

That wasn't the only statement he made, though.

Which is probably why people are hitting disagree.
christocolus  +   796d ago
I stated this before...wait till the dev makes an official statement. I do believe they will achieve 1080p/60fps on both ps4 and xbx1.after all the dev( just few days ago) claimed to know how to optimize the xbx ones esram...what this means is that hopefully,most devs will get used to working with the esram alot sooner than we thought.

Most of the launch games cannot do a steady 60fps/1080p. These consoles just don't have the raw power.

I've been playing BF4 and KZSF on PS4 and they look decent not amazing and cannot maintain 50-60fps, many times the games will dip to 30-40fps they are still fun though and the PS4 will have some great REAL exclusives.

If you want 1080p/60 in most games then the PC is the only option, console devs will focus on the eye candy and the framerate being cut to 30fps will be the obvious sacrifice just like in previous gens.
arbitor365  +   796d ago

edgeofsins  +   796d ago

ATiElite  +   796d ago
This is NO big deal!

ANY GAME can be made to run at 1080p 60fps on XB1/PS4


just how much eye candy and post processing effects will be left out to allow 1080p 60fps. Also is the game linear with a Hallway effect and closed in areas or Open World with LARGE draw distances and vistas?

So a lot has to be accounted for when talking about 1080p 60fps. Like the number of on screen enemies, physics, A.I. and moving objects.

So again no need to get excited over 1080p 60fps for a low graphical low post processing hallway game but for something like Battlefield 4 then YES 1080p 60fps and all the might of the Frostbite 3 is splendid.
JackISbacK  +   796d ago
budddy ,devs are intellegent they knows what you stated in yor comment for them most importent are effects in the game and they target them first then resolutions and they know what to do ,they may have been able to get all post effects on both and now targetting same resolution on both devices and they belive they can do it on both.
DeadMansHand  +   796d ago
In the interview/demo on vgx the guy said that anywhere you see on the map you can go to. Either walking on ground or climbing over buildings.

the keyword here is "targeting" lol, it won't be possible for xbone when it comes out. They don't want to make xbone inferior by saying bluntly it will run at 720p, they try to delay the decision and see what they can come up with. At the end, they might make it run at 1080p but at a significant lower quality than PS4, or run at 900p with slightly lower quality or just downright 720p with the same quality.

UncleGermrod  +   796d ago
Cannot disagree there. However, IW also said this about CoD. But I think it is clear that both games were at least partially rushed, and they may not have had the time to optimize properly using the eSRAM. No doubt PS4 seems easier to develop for, and more powerful, but I think both consoles should be able to handle this next wave of games at 1080. I guess this next year will truly be the test of whether the x1 will be able to keep up, at least in terms of resolution. These devs have more time, so let's just see what happens.
UncleGermrod  +   796d ago
I think the X1 should be able to handle this with the right optimization. This game looks really nice, and hitting 1080.60 for X1 would at least prove that it is possible for more graphics-intense games than forza. That being said, if they truly feel that the game cannot hit 1080/60 without removing certain effects, then I would rather hear 900/60. Chances are I will have my ps4 by then, and while I would prefer to play this on x1, at least I know I will probably have the choice of which port is best.

Incipio  +   796d ago
No one has denied that the Xbox One can render games in 1080p60.

However, this isn't like last generation where there were barely any performance differences ultimately between Sony and Microsoft's consoles.

This generation, there is a very, very clear difference in hardware capability. Devs have said it themselves. And it's absolutely the truth. Specs do not lie, it's all on the silicon inside those plastic boxes we love so much.

The PS4 doesn't *possibly* have more power this generation, it *absolutely does*, with developer estimates ranging that the PS4 is anywhere from 35-50% more capable than the Xbox One.

So, when you see a multiplat game this generation, and both are running at can rest assured that the Xbox One is holding things back and causing developers to be more conservative so that it can reach announced target resolution/fps.

Disagree all you want, that doesn't change the fact that the components within the PS4 make it a more powerful system and that when you see a multiplat that is 1080p60, the level of quality is being set by the Xbox One because if it was set by the PS4, the Xbox simply wouldn't be able to keep up. That's just raw fact, people.
