EA Sports UFC Could Be 1080p On PS4, 900p On Xbox One

Great news for PS4 owners: it looks like EA is investigating into creating disparity between the PS4 and Xbox One versions of EA Sports UFC when the game launches in two weeks.

I really think the Xbox One version is holding back the PS4 version. Parity most likely.

"They were looking at whether or not we could have the PS4 [version run] at a higher resolution," ..."but whether or not their investigations were successful? I don't know at this time." Doesn't sound like parity to me. And no dev aims for parity if it can do 1080p it will.

Army_of_Darkness1167d ago (Edited 1167d ago )

It does seem like EA is kinda holding back the ps4 versions from reaching 1080p on purpose just to stay on MS's good side and avoid resolution drama from the fans... I can understand that in a business perspective, but as a gamer I find it very disappointing to see....
We will see how the witcher 3 turns out on the ps4 as to whether or not it will run in 1080p because if it does, lol, well EA is gonna have some explaining to do;-)

jackanderson19851168d ago

And what exactly are you basing that on? Has any game so far this gen been held back on the PS4 due to some parity clause ? Pretty sure the majority if not all third party games have been performing better on the PS4.

DF did there analysis on a demo. Game spot did an interview geared towards PS4. William usher is a known MS hater in every sense of the word. Final game I can see both as 1080p30fps but even at 900p30fps still a good looking game. My only issue is that on easy it's unbelievably easy as in a 14 second win easy

Day one patches are not unusual, and graphics disparity seems to be the norm so far. In the end, it's not an open world game so it shouldn't be too hard to hit 1080p on either system.

NatureOfLogic_1168d ago (Edited 1168d ago )

BF4(900p 60fps, EA)- launch title, multplat
Watch Dogs(900p 30fps, Ubisoft)- Open world, multplat
EA Sports UFC(900p 30fps, EA)- ???? multplat

That's three games sub 1080p on PS4. Two being from EA. What is UFC doing to put itself into that small group of games that can't do 1080p? Nothing about the gameplay looks demanding compared to other AAA games. My point is 900p is far from the standard on PS4.

jackanderson19851168d ago

@rg i know day one patches aren't uncommon these days I was just pointing out it's a demo of a game not released for another 20 days give or take. That's assuming the demo was done on its release day

@argu not sure what the point in bringing those in they all still exceed the Xbox one versions and the point I was making was that the Xbox hasn't held back the ps4 yet so why would this game do it

@ArgumentumAdPopulum ,

Nice pick and about adding in other multiplat games like COD Ghost, Assassin's Creed 4, Need For Speed Rival, NBA 2k14, Trial, Tomb Raider and Wolfenstein also. Here we go with the conspiracy again. smh

NatureOfLogic_1168d ago

@ jack, I think EA is aiming for parity instead of using PS4 extra power to avoid resolution talks. That's where my ideal of Xbox One holding PS4 back comes from. Is it because of their very obvious partnership with MS? who knows.

LOL, William Usher strikes again. I am shock he would come up with another outrages article like this again.

I am downloading both demo now and will see it for myself...thank you very much. But I would think both will be similar.

Skate-AK1168d ago

If you read the DF analysis, it says the PS4 version is better. Better anti-aliasing. PS4 has 4x msaa, while Xbox one has 2x msaa. If they end up boosting the resolution on PS4 to 1080p, you'll notice the difference. Most likely will eliminate all aliasing.

Flutterby1168d ago

I would also think that if the games don't look the same and the ps4 does look better, you would still say they look the same, because you would probably have a break down if you had to admit every multiplat does look better.

No_Limit1167d ago (Edited 1167d ago )

@Flutterby ,

Stop stalking me and troll on all my comments like a puppy. Go play some of those superior third party ports on PS4 or something. LOL

you cant say that if the ps4 version is running at 4xmsaa and the xbox is at 2xmsaa thats not parity.

NatureOfLogic_1168d ago (Edited 1168d ago )

That's a excuse to deliberately bring down PS4's native resolution to match Xbox One's 900p(parity). If PS4 and Xbox One both used 2xmsaa. PS4 would be native 1080p and perform better. Imo, 4xmsaa compared to 2xmsaa is not worth sacrificing native 1080p resolution and performance. I'm sure they agree also. But for the sake of resolution parity. I think they decided to go with 4xmsaa at 900p(same resolution as Xbox One). If that's not holding back a console, I don't know what is.

Volkama1167d ago

4xmsaa will make a bigger difference than the leap from 900p to 1080p. As excuses go, it is a pretty good one.

Future_20151168d ago

Every year games get more and more demanding, these consoles cannot keep up as their hardware stays the same and to be honest both consoles have pretty low end GPUs for 2014

XtraTrstrL1168d ago (Edited 1168d ago )

PS4's GPU would still be mid-tier. And any current mid-tier GPU that could be used to it's fullest potential with code developed and optimized specifically for it on an ever-evolving SDK - can do amazing things for a few years to come.

Factor in the unified hUMA style GDDR5 and soon-to-be-standard GPGPU computing with the altered GPU made specifically for it in the PS4, and then the possibilities get even crazier.

XiSasukeUchiha1168d ago

Parity is real sorry to say:( but enjoy your game everyone:)

MeliMel1168d ago

Hahaha, so you playing the parity card huh? How, when most multiplats are better on PS4 as is. If its being held back blame the devs not Xbox One.

AngelicIceDiamond1167d ago

All the fanboys think its parity which is stupid.

They think The crew is aiming for parity because both run 1080p 30 frames and to them its impossible and unbelievable the X1 is doing it.

They believe the 30 frames is what's "holding back the PS4" Need For Speed is 30 frames Parity! The Crew is 30 frames Parity!

Drive Club is 30 frames Par!...oh wait a minute FH2 is 30 frames oh...


elhebbo161167d ago

Dont get pissed when someone tells you consoles are holding back PC, 900p is already enough of a difference but you still want to go there and say the Xbox One is holding back the PS4? especially on a SPORTS game thats not even that graphic intensive? dude you think too highly of your console.

Magicite1167d ago

game looks like shit and runs like open world watch dogs scale game? GIMME A BREAK!

incendy351168d ago

I just downloaded the demo on both consoles, they literally look and play identical. Only real difference is you can multitask while playing on the X1.

MasterCornholio1168d ago

Thats a feature of the OS not the game.


incendy351168d ago

I use it as a feature of the game. Like to Skype my friends when I play so I can see their defeat!

SmokingMonkey1168d ago

If i was going to play this game I could record the past fifteen minutes on my PS4 instead of just five minutes on the would still be the same though.

dantesparda1168d ago (Edited 1168d ago )

Hm, how not surprising that incendy35, found no differences aside from snap. Typical. Keep shilling brother.

Flutterby1168d ago

Except it is already proven they don't look identical because ps4 has better AA derp.

dale_denton1167d ago

lol who wants to multitask while playing a fighting game? wtf.. you sound stupid
