"Sunset Overdrive is Xbox One's big title for the holiday season. There is no doubt the game looks goregous and colorful, and it might look even better according to Insomniac Games."
Wow, that's great news.. the more the better
Hell yea! Very smart to invest their extra recourses on enriching the fun factor and gameplay than just improving resolution.
Yeah its going to be awesome on my PC!!! Gameplay and High Res!!
@georgeenoob Maybe then they should drop from 900p to 792p and enrich the fun factor even more! :P
Glad they worry more about mechanics and environment than getting to 1080 just for the hell of it. The e3 trailer/gameplay looked great so larger enemy counts and better looking effects is a huge plus.
“For us it’s really more about pushing the number of characters on the screen and particles in the game. If you play the game you will see there are a lot of things that are happening on the screen. It really is great to be supported by Xbox. One really cool thing that the platform [Xbox One] enables us to do is seamless transition between single player to multiplayer. All you have to do is hop into the photo booth of the game and boom…you are in multiplayer. We are very grateful to be partners with Microsoft as an Xbox One exclusive,” Schneider explained. -Yep, I appreciate a better game with alot going on rather than making 1080p your priority.
Is it me or is this like a infamous meets TonyHawk mixed with a lil sly cooper...
@b16 you clearly only play PS franchises lol I truly don't get how this is like infamous in tye slightest other than being in an open world and maybe bouncing high on cars? . . Reminds me of jet set meets dead rising meets ratchet and clank.
i thought resolution didn't matter to you? lol. so it does matter that ps4 gets better results right? don't worry i'll wait.
not enough resources were saved to get up to 1080p, but it did add enough to get a few more probably brain dead sheep fodder cloned characters
Lol whats up with the disagrees. "I would have to disagree, a game improving is a bad thing."
Reminds me of Lair..... stunningly beautiful ermmm, was it a game???? It looked amazing..... not much else I can say.... Edit, Lukas, in all fairness, you do see an article one day, then the next day on same thing, you see total contradiction..... too much rubbish being approved on this site... too many fanboy posse's pushing stupid fanboy agenda's, going unchecked... Off Topic, anyone wondering what happened to the ball when Rooney took a corner against Italy?? http://gfycat.com/MilkyInco...
That's what I care about. Mayhem, beautiful lighting, tons of particles, simulation and everything else that makes games look real. I'll take that anyday in 900p (which makes no difference when you game on a big tv 2 meters away from it) over a 8k res minecraft. Push more amazing stuff on screen! Not more empty pixels! Quality over quantity, always.
Eh, gaming on a big TV makes it even more apparent because the pixels are of a larger size individually. Uh, resolution is exactly that, pushing more on screen. Showing more of the image. I get what you're saying, but don't take shots at the fact that competitor games are 1080p, when they so far haven't sacrificed any gameplay to achieve that.
Not all of the competitors games have been 1080p and we don't know if sacrifices were made or not because obviously were not the developers. Not one game has been proven to look way better on Ps4 so where is this huge difference I keep hearing about? Just like Ps4 games will improve the same will happen for Xone.
ohok georgegreennoob finally come out is hole get back under the bridge troll
Great news for everybody who has an XB1 now enjoy Sunset when it comes out please!
Why would Insomniac worry about making Sunset Overdrive better by adding more characters and particles on screen while maintaining a stable framerate, when they could just up the resolution? I'm baffled they would use the new SDK in such a bad way. -Sense the sarcasm PS I'm really liking the new seamless multiplayer push in games on XB1. Sunset Overdrive you just hop in a booth and in Forza Horizon 2 you just join events along the open road. @Lukas don't come in here an try to play that. 2 days ago there was a Sunset Overdrive sub 1080p article that had nearly 300 comments. Even you said "You gotta admit though, 1080p would have worked with the Pixar-like visuals really nicely. I would have really liked 1080p for this game." before trying to play both sides of the fence. http://n4g.com/news/1531875...
Damn, truefan, you even make bitter comments when no one is giving you cause to do so. :p On topic: I'd take more characters (do they mean enemies?) on screen and prettier effects over a jump to 1080p from 900p any day, especially for this game which most of it's appeal seems to be reliant on the amount of craziness on-screen. Day one buy, one of my most anticipated games.
It may be a bitter comment but I'm positive its coming it's a response from the many trolls that plagued the the Sunset Overdrive 900p article not to long ago. im also glad that Insomniac is not caving in to fanboy pressure trying to only up the resolution but intead add more content and flare to make the game an even bettwe experience. here's hoping it happens.
Strongly agree Lukas. I'd rather have them push effects and such rather than resolution. I'm sure we'll be satisfied with the final release. :)
@spacecat "but I'm positive its coming it's a response from the many trolls that plagued the the Sunset Overdrive 900p article not to long ago. " Oh no doubt, but that still doesn't warrant the bitterness when no one was even making any negative comments towards the game here. It's just perpetuating the BS.
IF their upping the res,the effects and everything else does look better cause it would be sharper and pop more.
With enough power, you can do both. :)
Which is probably why we haven't seen either do it yet. :)
@Software Are you saying its impossible to have great graphics and 1080P resolution on consoles? I honestly dont believe that because games like Uncharted 4, Infamous Second Son and Bloodborne prove otherwise. Overtime that will change as games get more advanced but at the moment that isn't the case. Anyways developers will always have to choose between resolution, detail level, particle effects, framerate etc on any closed platform like the PS4 or the Xbox One.
Ratchet and Clank on PS4 is sure to render that arguement null. We''ll be seeing that at GamesCon this August, :) with premier footage. The game releases next year over the summer. And I'm pretty sure it'll do everything SO is doing at a higher visual fidelity and at 60fps every Ratchet game on PS3 has ran at 60fps with tons going on on screen...
Why not expect a $400 console ($500 until recently), made in 2013 to have the same standards as mass-market TVs have had since 2011--where penetration of 1080p hit 55%, and has only climbed since? I think that's a better question. The willingness of Xbox fanboys to accept mediocrity is an embarrassment. My God, since when is 1080p some mythic, lofty goal that only the greatest of developers can achieve? It is the BARE MINIMUM for HD gaming in 2014, period. The standard has been set by consumer TVs for years now, MS just missed--ignored, rather--the message.
so you're comparing Television to Gaming? you realise they are two completely different mediums yeah? coulda went with comparing it to PCs that'd make sense. look if 900p suits the game it suits the game, why sacrifice a (hopefully) steady framerate to please the vocal minority?
"My God, since when is 1080p some mythic, lofty goal that only the greatest of developers can achieve? It is the BARE MINIMUM for HD gaming in 2014, period." Then I assume you only really enjoy gaming on PC then?
"so you're comparing Television to Gaming?" Where are the 900p TVs? As for the game, if the devs want to take the resources they could use to bump it up to 1080p and use it for more characters / particles, it's there choice.
In one sense I kinda agree with you and it would be nice but then again if this was the standard, then why doesn't cable and satellite broadcast in 1080p resolution or why can't any of my streaming services send a true 1080p picture even with a 50mbs service? Listen, resolution is nice but it's a luxury with diminishing returns depending on your display while additional particle effects, lighting, etc. will always be appreciated. If resolution was the be-all end-all then wouldn't Minecraft running in 4K be better looking than Uncharted??
Another Playstation hater has nothing else to do since Playstation has no good games except Infomous, he has come on in here and hate on another console.
I think what point these above replies missed from bic there was that he's trying to say that last generation 720p WAS meant to be the standard and in the end only a handful on 360 games ever managed to hit those targets i think, and no ps3 games? I forget. The TV standard has moved on to 1080p now and it's only by coincidence that the new consoles are now targeting 1080p right? lol. Hmm. I think not. It's deliberate. 1080p for this gen should be the new standard as the next gen will probably be aiming for 4K if it ever becomes mass adopted, it's the next logical step anyway. Talking about PC isn't relevant as we're talking about consoles here. I'd like to point out it's also disappointed when PS4 gets a 900p game, not just Xbone.
