This week John, Erik and Nathanael talk Metal Gear, Titianfall, Minecraft, if 1080p is that important and more!
This writer does not have a 4 television
"1080p doesn't matter" It's not that I disagree with that statement, it's just that I want my next-gen console to feel, well, next-gen.
I disagree, but only because I think it's important to strive for. It's just a nice thing xbox fans want to cling to and explain away.
Graphics shouldn't be the only thing that makes a game next gen. GAMEPLAY feeling next gen is more important than graphics, better A.I., better level design, more original gameplay ideas=next gen feeling.
1080p is important. Everytime I switch from PC to PS3, I instantly notice the difference and I am put off by it. Framerate and resolution are the most important things for me when it comes to graphics. I like games that look crisp and run at a smooth 60 fps. All the post-processing and the bells and whistles are really just optional, and sometimes they make things uglier
I think all games for this gen should be 1080p and at least 30fps, not all games need 60fps it just depends on the genre but if you can get both that cool too
Gaming journalists are really asking this? Adam Sessler and others are asking if 1080p is important...I'm just wondering if the PS4 didn't offer the majority of it's games at that resolution and the xboxone did, what would the discussion be like? No, it isn't that important, BUT...it is kind of important to someone who wants to invest precious time and money into a gaming hobby. It makes me wonder what issues years down the road will arise if a non-hardware upgradeable console struggles with this resolution so early in it's life cycle.
Remember when articles lashed out when PS3 titles weren't 1080p?
Same song and dance. If people really want 1080p 60fps gaming, they need to buy a PC.
Exactly ps4 and xbox is weak compared to pcs so if you want the best resolution you shouldn't be console gaming to begin with!!!!!i I personally suck with a keyboard and mouse that's why I game on the console
I can tell you one thing,.. You will need one hell of machine to run all the games this gen at 1080p @60 on very high/ultra, with some AA and aniso.. Overhead is large, games aren't optimized, bottlenecks everywhere,.. A decent enough GPU that could handle it, will cost you about as much as a console,.. and that has to be paired with equally a great CPU and ram,.. And even then there are things to consider,.. I am sure you know that. I am mostly a PC gamer,.. Also thinking of getting PS4 (mostly because of their exclusives) ,.. Resolution and frame rate is important,.. a lot
You know you can use controllers on the PC too, right? I have an 360 controller that I use for mine. Though you can make a PS3 controller work too with some ingenuity.
All I know is my xbox one is freakin bad ass I don't care about the rest.no hate on the ps4 just don't care about it xbox one controller is beyond perfect
I just got my XB1 yesterday and that controller fits perfectly into my hands.
Not sure if I'll get an Xbox one, but I preordered the Titan Fall Xbox One controller to go with my PC. Microsoft is adding support this year, and I fully intend to partake!
1080p matters. I'm actually a little disappointed that the PS4 isn't even more powerful but at least the majority of it's games will be 1080p. But resolution MATTERS to me. I've recently played COD GHOST on both the PS4 and X1 side by side with nearly identical settings (only adjustments I made were to the color and contrast) on the same exact display (I have a 46" triple panel display setup in my game room) and the differences are very noticeable.
Doesn't matter to me. I never cared about resolution. Never even thought about it until the PS4 had more 1080p games than XB1. I only have a 1080i TV anyways...
Itvis to most people. It's VERY noticable.
It matters bigtime , sometime when I open the door to go outside, and the trees are all blurry and jaggie , im like "screw this day , its only like 720 or 900 out here" so I just go back inside....
Resolution doesn't matter at all i mean someone should tell the tv manufacturers to stop making tv's with output >720p. This means imax stock is going to plunge because nobody cares about resolution"wonder why their tickets are sold out first all the time" hmmm guess ill never know. Plus a traded in my samsung s4 in for a lg rumor because it just doesnt matter. Did i tell you james cameron gave me a black eye for telling him it was a stupid ass move for filming Avatar in HD because it just didn't matter. Microsoft stumbled and fell out of the gate and will be eating sony's dust for quite a long time.
I will guarantee xbox one will hit 1080 with halo and gears if not it will have high quality per Pixal it's all about the look not to brag about 1080 it's like saying my weiner is a foot long but it's crooked I would rather it be a straight 6 inches lol
What if it's a foot long and straight.
"Let's Take the 1080p Crying Down a Notch" No, let's not. Its 2014, 4k is here, and sooner or later will be affordable; and you don't wanna give even 1080p?!?! 400 dollars for a consoles, plus 60 dollars for each game. Want games to sell? Make them awesome and AT LEAST 1080p. Don't want do it? Then don't CRY when the games and/or consoles don't sell as much as you'd want. You want to have my hard-earned dollars? Then you're gonna have the hard-earn them from me. Don't like it? Then let me quote 1987's Robocop Dick Jones: "If you can't stand the heat you better stay out of the kitchen."
"Its 2014, 4k is here, and sooner or later will be affordable; and you don't wanna give even 1080p?!?!" I'm pretty sure they want to give 1080p as much as possible but you also have to understand that you're buying a console for $400 and not a gaming PC for twice as much or even more. If 1080p is important to you you should be fine with the PS4. As far as I know BF4 is the only sub 1080p game on the PS4 (I'm pretty sure it isn't because the PS4 couldn't handle it in 1080p though). If you want a guaranteed minimum of 1080p and 60fps I suggest you getting a gaming PC (There is no way you're getting that for 400 bugs though). And I wouldn't count on Sony and MS needing your money so badly to be honest. Unless you're living in a parallel universe you probably have already heard that both consoles are selling very well.
"Want games to sell? Make them awesome and AT LEAST 1080p. Don't want do it? Then don't CRY when the games and/or consoles don't sell as much as you'd want." I have a feeling Titanfall is going to sell like hotcakes, excluding the PC version.
Yes it matters. Frankly it's just pathetic that 1080p isn't standard. I mean resolution/effects/fps is going to be a balancing act no matter what hardware. But with 1080p being the native resolution of TVs for years now and 4k on the way it only makes sense for 1080p to be the baseline. PS4 seems capable enough for 1080p with modern game design, effects, and textures. Xbox One is just not enough of a step up to meet modern standards. Let alone in 5 years when 4k is mainstream and 1080p seems low.
We want 1080p because it is what is being sold to us, it is becoming the norm so why wouldnt we want it as standard, whats the use of having a high def tv?!
Its called an evolution of technology. 4k tvs will be standard someday. It would be nice to see this Gen hit 1080p. How does that not matter? Maybe the little steps don't matter as much as the evolution as a whole, but without them there is little progress.
