Didn't we know that already? Ground Zeroes was the same, wasn't it.

Manic20141197d ago

Ground Zeroes was 720/60 for Xbox One.

MightyNoX1197d ago

Pretty much confirms PES will be 900p as well.

TheGreatGamer1197d ago

@MightNoX PES 2016 is confirmed 1080p on both systems

You guys sure are giving Micheal Pachter a run for his money.

I guess that article saying it would be 1080p was way off then. It's annoying when 'journalists' try to pass off hope for facts.

Okay, 900p is disappointing, but if that's the only option you have, I'm sure you'll still enjoy it. The game will be great regardless!

The other article that was stating 1080p 60fps yesterday stated it was "news" not rumor. Guess you can't trust that site again. Which that site also seems to be missing altogether now when you click on the article. Also marked fail. Big day for gamers to hate gamers again. The console wars Continue..

@HeisenbergC10H15N,

"The same fanboys who was claiming the cloud makes the xbox one the most powerful console will also be eating crow AGAIN. They never learn"

what does MGSV 900p resolution got to do with the cloud? FACE palm and LOL

It was always a rumor and people get excited and discourage on opposite septrum whenever these type if rumors popped up. glad it is not 720p either like many people also claimed when those articles popped up on the past as well. Same thing happened to Uncharted 4 when it went from 60fps to 30fps or to a lesser extend, Mario Kart 8 from 1080p to 720p. Actually, nobody even cares about the resolution of Mario Kart 8 when it was announced that it was only 720p. LoL

BATMAN and Witcher 3 were also 900p on XB1 and they look and run fine. Same will be here. Nothing more, nothing less.

It doesn't bother me as I am getting the MGSV version on my PS4 either way thay I have pre order months ago but I am glad Konami made the effort to optimize from the demo release of 720p earlier this year for xbox players.

Ezz20131197d ago (Edited 1197d ago )

@Genuine-User

Yeah, i remember that
alot of xbox fans made comments ....if i was one of them i should feel embarrased.

@Rookie_Monster
"Same thing happened to Uncharted 4 when it went from 60fps to 30fps or to a lesser extend"

when that happened ?!
ND never showed Uncharted 4 60fps gameplay
that went to 30fps after that.
they said they will "target" 60fps
and seeing the Graphics of the game that no other can match it on consoles other than The Order 1886....I won't blame them
at least the MP is 60fps.

@Septic

"Glad its not 720p on the X1. That would suck"

Why the downplay? If it were 720p, would you say glad it's not 600p? It still sucks that it's 900p and not 1080p.

Septic1197d ago

@chouji
"Why the downplay? "

Downplaying what exactly? 900p is better than 720 no? Ground Zeroes was 720p that's why its great that its gone up for the Xbox One.

Common sense...

Rookie_Monster1197d ago (Edited 1197d ago )

@@chouji,

Yea, don't get your analogy either. Going from 720p demo to 900p is an upgrade so it is a positive like Septic said. Just like Bungie had the early 900p version of Destiny on XB1 and optimized it to 1080p by release. It is a plus and not a minus. The 1080p claim foe MGSV was just a rumor and not an actual fact that it was actually 1080p at one point for MGSV on XB1 and was then downgraded to 900p so your point holds no water at all against what Septic said.

Wow, just noticed the PC version can run a max of 3840x2160. Hmmm, might switch my pre order to the PC version after all.

Yes, anyone with common sense would agree 900p is better than 720p. However, that does not negate the fact that they were unable to achieve 1080p with this game, like some other titles have, such as the upcoming Tomb Raider.

Errr...okay? Your comment makes no sense because the fact that it didn't hit 1080p is obvious because...the game is running at 900p?

Where am I downplaying it? All I said was Im glad its not 720p and you accused me of downplaying its inferior resolution to the PS4? Even though GZ ran at 720p?

You're not making any sense mate.

I think I'm making perfect sense. So much so that I know I never once mentioned the PS4.

LeCreuset1197d ago

"what does MGSV 900p resolution got to do with the cloud?"

He's talking about boasting about unproven things before they happen. Something along the lines of counting chickens before they hatch. See the Crackdown comments for a game that has yet to be distributed into the wild and tested. Could it work out just like the demo? Maybe. Or maybe the known difficulties of cloud gaming are too much for it to overcome. That's why I try to avoid boasting about PS4 victories that haven't happened yet, even in many cases where common sense would predict such an outcome. I think the closest I've come is offering a bet to a particular troll who kept insisting to me that Xbox would win at least 4 of the last 6 months of 2014 NPD sales. You just end up with egg on your face if it doesn't materialize.

Septic1197d ago

@chouji

I think youre failing on some basic reading comprehension mate.

"I think I'm making perfect sense. So much so that I know I never once mentioned the PS4."

Yes I know but its inferior resolution to the PS4 is a FACT. I simply said that I'm glad it's not 720p...what was the downplaying in that?

Just to make it easy to understand; Ground Zeroes ran at 720p. That was basically a demo for this game based on the same engine. So I'm glad its not 720p for the X1, even though Im most likely going to buy this on PS4.

Like I said, common sense. If anything, you should reply to the people below who are bringing in thr cloud for god knows what reason...

Mr Pumblechook1197d ago

@choujij. Yes Rise of The Tomb Raider is 1080p, but it is silly to criticise Konami for not achieving the same with Metal Gear Solid The Phantom Pain, because it's like comparing apples with oranges. MGS:TPP might have more detail (higher frame rate, polygons, shading and other effects) that ROTR doesn't. In fact any basic retro 2D game can achieve 1080p 60fps on Xbox One because it is less demanding on the system.

Sweep141197d ago

We will have to see if there were any other impact on graphics or missing effects.

Their last game had huge impact with regards to that, so differences were worse than just resolution.

@ whole situation with moderator

The game resolution was not what it was previously thought to be. Linking previous article that describes that is perfectly within topic.

Some moderator had a field day here. Probably was embarrassed to be one eating crows.

bigc0720041193d ago

See..I can't even get my hopes up for 1080p 60fps anymore. Everytime they say it...they scale it down to stop trolls from trolling in internet comments. It's really annoying. I doubt the ps4 will stay at 1080p. As much as Id like it to. 900p isn't even that bad if your tv isn't 60". I think both resolutions are perfect for each console. That way both console could get the more important factor...60 FPS!!

It's the fact that MGS5 has opted to do 60FPS which is impressive in itself. So X1 has been doing well lately because most games are 30FPS

I think there was some wishful thinking around DX12 that it would bump the resolution or something.

tmh35931196d ago

Makes no sense since this game isn't using dx12 at all. Maybe you should research what dx12 is exactly.

Bathyj1197d ago

Personally I'd prefer [email protected] if I had to choose. I mean you'll spend a lot of this game hiding in a cardboard box, why does it have to be 60fps? I'd prefer increased resolution to spot distant objects and make out enemies better.

tuglu_pati1197d ago

No, performance > Resolution always IMO. 60 FPS is just too smooth if I had to choose i'll go with 900p/60FPS instead of 1080p/30PFS. The difference visually between 900p and 1080p its small, some people can't even tell, while the difference between 30fps and 60fps is really noticeable (IMO).

In this case I don't have to choose, im getting the PS4 version.

Bathyj1197d ago

It's not a quick action game. Like I said you'll be standing still, waiting a lot. What does it matter between 30 or 60 in a game of this type?

Plus 30 is perfectly smooth when it's rock solid. There is this misconception that a smooth frame rate means a quick framerate. No, it needs to be a consistent framerate. I'd rather have 30 fps that never moves than a framerate that hits 60 occasionally but hovers at 40-50.

tuglu_pati1197d ago (Edited 1197d ago )

Agreed, locked 30FPS its smooth but 60 FPS is a lot more smoother, plus it help the eye to perceive a better image quality. Like I said I rather go with 60FPS than resolution, the difference between 900p and 1080p its not enough to sacrifice 60FPS.

I could agree with you if we were talking about 720p, but that is not the case.

seanpitt231197d ago

I agree to get 1080p 60fps on ps4 they must of cut some corners probably graphically I would of preferred 1080/30fps on this type of game and give the graphics a bigger boost up.

LamerTamer1196d ago

"I'd prefer increased resolution to spot distant objects and make out enemies better."

Then get the PS4 version, it is 1080p.

Bolts1196d ago

Lmao there is no gameplay advantage with a 900p vs 1080p tangent. Freaking fanboys. If you actually care about this then you would playing on Steam with 1440p @ 60 FPS were the visuals and gameplay impact is night and day.

Just a few weeks ago Konami said the XB1 version was running at 1080P 60fps. Now they are saying something completely different.

http://n4g.com/news/1769759...

Guess they need to go back and re-optimize the game again. Either that or start using DX12/Win10 API. Curious as to what changed from now and a week ago? Would love to hear Konami's explanation. They obviously aren't using DX12, Win10 or the Cloud with this game.

iagainsti1201196d ago (Edited 1196d ago )

http://www.quickmeme.com/im...

Its going to take a while for developers to start using new API's always has. Unfortunately for the Xbox One the first game using DirectX 12 most likely will not ship for a year or so.
DirectX 12 is not like some huge game changer for Xbox One since it already has a low level API. But right now it also has to use the slapped on DX11 based API because Microsoft was not ready to launch the new system. Most 3rd party developers do not use the low level API but the High level one because porting is much easier. If the game is exclusive (only on one platform) it will use the low level api 99% of the time (assuming its on console PC has almost no choice but high level API because of different graphics card vendors). If the game is releasing on 2 or more platforms the high level API will be used. DX11 has very bad multicore support.
https://www.youtube.com/wat...
So who's fault would it be that Kojima had to use the API.

Then you have the PS4 where the High level API has very good multicore support like DX12 and Mantel. PS4 also has a Low level API just like the Xbox one.

All this API talk makes me want to resurrect me ol Voodoo card to see if i can get my old Glide API games to work again. lol
https://en.wikipedia.org/wi...
Glide back in the day was kind of like AMD's Mantel.

LamerTamer1196d ago (Edited 1196d ago )

Software is not going to make up for a weaker GPU. Optimize even more and the xbone will have graphics rivaling a Titan GPU on PC, no it doesn't work like that sorry, even with DX15.

Optimizing will get you closer to the hardware limit. The more optimizing you do the closer you will get but it will be diminishing returns the more you optimize. The PS4 has a higher hardware limit due to the beefier GPU. You can optimize less and still get better performance than xbone. If you optimize the PS4 as good as xbone it will remain even more ahead. It is just logic.

If the cloud is used then you will need to be always online and have a good connection at all times. Do we really want an always online requirement now? I don't.

I couldn't care less about the resolution. This game is a never buy for me. Just played ground zeros and I really and truly hated it. First Metal Gear game I've ever played and the last. Not sure if that game is representative of the series, but if it is, I'm not sure how it has such a following.

calling it now, xbox one version will have a more stable framerate than PS4.

Witcher 3 was the same, 1080p on PS4 and 900p (dynamic) on Xbone, yet xbox consistently had higher framerates.

Well yesterday there was a rumour saying that the xbone version was 1080 60fps... And some fans were actually saying that in 2 years thanks to the new SDK the Xbone was as powerful as another console. We will probably see people justifying that konami can't program.
