Destiny beta on Xbox One will not be running at 1080p, will reach 1080p by launch

Bungie has confirmed just now in the IGN live stream that the Destiny beta on Xbox One will not be running at 1080p. The game itself at launch will reach 1080p. Bungie’s Community Manager said that ‘there’s always time for improvement.’ (Xbox One)

"There's always time for improvement" =/= "Will assuredly, 100%, be 1080p at launch". Titanfall never got the promised/ teased resolution boost. In fact, nothing about that patch has been mentioned for months now.

What mark (in the video) is the actual quote at? I wouldn't mind listening to what is said, as this paraphrasing is kind of hearsay.

Edit (Article is from March 10th):

"Titanfall Xbox One resolution likely to increase after launch"

KEY word: "likely". Avoid declaring absolutes, so that when nothing materializes, there can be no consequences, as a lie never--technically--occurred. This is basic bait-and-switch people. Still, its funny how easily suckers fall for this PR blather.

I played titanfall the other day and screen tearing and frame rate issues have greatly improvement since launch. Games always get updated you know to a better build.

I bet Respawn could have upped the resolution if they wanted, but maybe they can't be bothered this late in the game. Resolution is more of a bigger deal to Sony fans to be honest.

My sister borrowed a book from me she gifted me for Christmas. I asked for it back and she said "that's my book look it has my name in it." She had actually signed her name in my book. My sister is the most honest person you will ever meet, she would never lie. She truly believes it is her book.

It has nothing to do with Bungie.

90% of the time the Xbox One hits 1080p in cross gen games, it has framerate issue, tearing or is missing effects present in the PS4 version. Expect Destiny to be no different. It's a system problem, not a developer problem.

Screen tearing in Sniper Elite 3, the most recent 1080p Xbox One game.

Dewitt  +   577d ago
I always enjoy watching you proved wrong. They already confirmed 1080p on both consoles and are improving IQ. Again, this is the exact purpose of a beta.
TheGrimReaper  +   577d ago
Of course they are improving IQ, but this is not the exact purpose of a beta :/
Stressing your engine with worst case scenarios is easy to test during development without using a beta...
NextLevel  +   577d ago | Well said

When mentioning the Xbox One's issues with multiplats is trolling, is hardly my fault. Pretty much ALL multiplats on Xbox One that are 1080p have framerate problems or are missing effects like AO or AA for example. The Xbox One beta has problems that weren't present in the PS4's alpha, like framerate problems (with no action going on or other characters to render on screen)


It will be 1080p, again it'll most likely be missing effects. The fact that its not 1080p yet, makes that a high probability. Just cause games say they're 1080p on PS4 and Xbox One, doesn't automatically mean they are completely even on all levels.

Also, beta's are for testing servers. Which is why MP games have them, not SP games. It has nothing to do with resolutions.

"Everyone I know still waiting for the master chief collection to pick up an Xbox One. November will be the true test. I predict total domination by Xbox One just because of Halo."

It won't. It'll spike sales, then die down.

Things that were suppose to save the Xbox One.

- Titanfall
- DRM reversals
- DX12
- E3 2014
- Dropping Kinect

Now, it's Tier 2 countries, Halo and the cloud.

The cloud was already suppose to save the Xbox One with Watchdogs.

"Xbox One Cloud Processing Gives Watch Dogs City AI More ‘Dynamism’"

It's become a joke and that's why the Xbox One is failing hard and no amount of wishful thinking, pity, overhyping of average games, downplaying of technology or goal post shifting will stop it.

Titanfall is a cross gen game (360 & PC)
Project Spark is a cross gen game (360 & PC)
Halo MCC is Xbox and 360 game.
Forza Horizon is a cross gen game (360)

Just for the record I would view TLOU RE and LBP3 as cross gen games aswell. For the sake of argument is assume it's not. Something like Driveclub embarrassed Forza Horizon 2 and Forza 5 on a technical level.


Forza Horizon 2

Forza 5

and people act like the gap is marginal....

You have this on and on in every positive Xbox article, you need help. It's really not healthy being upset about a piece of plastic. Do you see red when xbox is mentioned, do you have the sudden impulse to rage type and spend hours gathering information on this brand?

Last question, did Xbox touch you inappropriately when you were younger...?

"Screen tearing in Sniper Elite 3, the most recent 1080p Xbox One game."

Why do people talk crap? You know you can just go to options and turn on v-sync, right?
You have checked-out the game yourself, instead of relying on secondhand info from the gaf of all places, yes?
I've been playing with it on from the start for over 14 hours on authentic and can't say I've experienced tearing or frame issues either. SMH
NullPointer  +   576d ago
There is a reason v-synch isn't on by default. It has very serious consequences for framerate (idling until the next v-synch). So, yes, you can entirely eliminate the tearing but your framerate might drop by 20% or more (judging by the tears in that GIF).

1080p native doesn't matter. I'd rather the game have Campaign Co-op, Splitscreen, & Online, so I'd have more replay value.

Halo Master Chief Collection will be 1080p 60fps across 4 games & I don't care about that, as every game played on the XBOX ONE is upscaled to 1080p anyway.

On the Halo Master Chief Collection, what I do care about is the move the move to horizontal splitscreen campaign co-op & online campaign co-op in Halo 2 Anniversary

If they don't have it running in 1080p yet, it's not a given that they will by launch. They are going to try their best though. But even then, it could be upscaled, not native.

It's quite possible the build used for the beta was forked and stabilized before they were able to integrate in the June XDK to remove Kinect.

Evey sub-1080p game is upscaled to 1080p. These systems only output at 1080p. All of this talk about resolution is about native resolution.
GUTZnPAPERCUTZ  +   577d ago
? They stated native, Both systems automatically upscale to 1080p silly. The "June" SDK just came out at the end of last month for devs. The Beta Build was probably 90% complete before that.
This is Bungie, if they say they are going to do something... they will deliver.

The glasses do make you look smart, but your comment proves otherwise. All games on X1 that are below 1080p are unscaled to 1080p. You started sounding like you may be a programmer, but then you had to go reveal your knowledge... or lack there of.

Doubt if they will hit 1080p by launch without cutbacks.

sidenote: I know there are cutbacks on the ps4 to hit 1080p also, there will just be more cutbacks on the XBone. I would rather them just do 900p and call it a day. Let the fanboys on the internet argue.

All devs should just make the best game they can.

I was on the fence about which console to get Destiny for. Now, my choice is clear. I will not make another Sniper Elite mistake. I have many more Xbox Live friends than PSN friends but it's always nice to meet new people. Plus, I'll be playing TLOU in two weeks so I'll probably meet new friends there that are getting Destiny as well. Now I have to get used to playing FPS games with the DS4.

SuperBlunt  +   577d ago
Indeed it does dude. They just announced today there will be a photo mode day 1
PsylentKiller  +   577d ago
14 days exactly till TLOU.

I guess my disagrees were because I didn't comment about the article directly. Maybe it's because I indirectly compared 505 Games to Bungie, like Bungie can't get Destiny to 1080 on the One. I believe they can get to 1080 but there will be sacrifices, maybe not as many as Sniper Elite, but sacrifices that most likely won't be made for the PS4 version.
I have 19 indie games, AC4, and MGS: GZ for PS4 to 5 indie games and 15 AAA games on the Xbox One. Deciding to get Destiny for PS4 was/is a difficult choice but the PS4 is proving time and again that it is the better console as far as graphics are concerned. But buying Destiny for the Xbox One as well is not out of the question. If the Beta goes well for me, I thoroughly enjoy Destiny upon release, and many of my Xbox friends buy Destiny, then I may very well have Destiny on both consoles.

KNWS  +   577d ago
This has been known about for a while. The beta is an old build and the reason Bungie hit 1080p was because of the reserve gpu power for kinect has now been removed.

Its phenomenal that both versions will be 1080p at launch. 50 per cent power difference was always nonsense.

imt@ 50 per cent power difference would be noticeable by now and its not showing. Sorry while i accept the GPU is slightly more powerful in the PS4. Games coming out for both consoles look the same with just minor differences.

Or maybe, because people only seem to care about 1080p they did what they had to do on both consoles to hit that? The ps4 has a better GPU, that is a fact that will not change.

Graphical/perfomance differences in some multiplatform games are big enough in PS4 favor ( MGS V, BF4, Sniper Elite III, Assassins Creed IV, COD : Ghosts and so on... ) , in exclusive games is much bigger difference.

Destiny on Xbone ( even at sub1080p ) :

Better for Xbone owners to be polished until launch.

Angels3785  +   576d ago

they are aiming for parity. BIG difference.

as that doesn't always happen

AfterThought  +   576d ago
The PS4 is actually 50% more powerful, the problem is when you're talking about computers, 50% isn't some magically huge difference but it's clearly enough. The PS4 trumps the Xbox One in every department by fairly significant margins when your talking about hardware.

All you have to do is use math to see that it is actually 50% more powerful.

PS4's 1.84flop vs. Xbox One's 1.31flop = 28% difference.

PS4 1152 shaders vs. Xbox One's 768 shaders = 33% difference.

If you can't figure out percentages between two numbers, let me explain it for you people who clearly can't use simple math.


1.84 - 1.31 = 0.53

0.53 / 1.84 = 0.2880434782608696

0.2880434782608696 x 100 = 28%


1152 - 768 = 384

384 / 1152 = 0.3333333333333333

0.3333333333333333 x 100 = 33%

That seems about 50% to me, the rest is pretty self explanatory, easy addition.

So if you people want to argue against the foundation in which we build our entire lives around be my guest because numbers don't lie. You can try all you want but the PS4 will always be 50% more powerful than the Xbox One because of its hardware.

It has been showing since the PS4 released, almost every multiplat game always runs at a higher resolution on PS4 and believe it or not upping the resolution is fairly taxing on hardware in general. So it is obvious the PS4 has the advantage.

What do you mean by liars like Naughty Dog?
Before you answer please keep in mind that any declaration of Frames Per Second is always understood as 'up to' unless we insert the word 'locked'.
To put this in perspective; there is not 1 triple "A" game released on the 360 or the PS3 that used the word 'locked' when communicating their frames per second.

I look forward to your answer.

I hope they reach 1080P but the games coming out on the 9th of September which means that it will go gold a few weeks before launch. There isn't much time left and if they implement 1080P into the XB1 version it will probably be through a patch.

With that said I'm pretty sure Bungie won't let their fans down and they will do a fantastic job with Destiny on the XB1.
Dlacy13g  +   577d ago
while your times are all correct, beta's are typically older builds in most cases. I wouldn't doubt the X1 destiny beta is from a build from 2 months ago or older which would mean it doesn't have use of the June sdk update hence why its not 1080p.

Beyond that though, its their word in that they said at E3 it would be 1080p. Only Bungie themselves can be held accountable at this point.

Edit: This would also explain why the X1 install is slightly smaller than the PS4 install.

I'll tell you why this is. Destiny is the first game to take advantage of the 10% GPU thing. Bungie themselves said so. They probably haven't been able to fully apply it yet since it's fairly recent, so the beta isn't 1080, but the final game is. Just my thought.

I will just say this. Bungie said it will be 1080p on the Xbox One (Bungie did say at E3 that the game will be running at 1080p at 30FPS on both PS4 and Xbox One at launch). No we will try for it, its a definitive statement. So, Bungie... don't make a liar out of yourselves.
