Furi Targeting 1080p/60fps on PS4, Dev Explains Lack of Xbox One Release

The Game Bakers' Furi is an intriguing hack and slash title with Afro Samurai influences and a neo-noir art style. It's coming to the PS4 and PC next Spring, which only makes the lack of an Xbox One release even more conspicuous.

"The game is so fast paced and requires such reflexes that it’s not playable at 30fps" Hence, no XB1 version.

That's a little harsh if you ask me.

They should do what other developers are doing and simply lower the resolution a little to maintain the frame rate. The problem is the time that will require for a small studio to hit the right resolution/frame rate ration on another platform.

This is gamingbolt so take everything with a grain of salt. The game could 100% run on the X1 maybe at a lower resolution but it could run. They are also stating "targeting" 1080/60 so they have yet to achieve it. So if they cant will they not release it on PS4?

Crapybolt loves to monetize on console wars.

@pope
he says its currently at 50 fps without optimization yet, so i think they feel pretty confident in the target

I agree that they will get there. But the things developers have been able to do with BOTH consoles makes comments like this lame.

If they came out and said; "we don't have the resources to work on both consoles and get them to our target resolution and FR, its us not them" That I would accept because THATS the truth. Anytime a small developer blames the console I don't but buy it.

Now I of course take the whole article with a grain of salt knowing the source. Its very possible the developer said "Both are great we just are focused on one" And all GB heard was click...click...click...click.

He gave a valid reason not to scale back a game that requires and relies on speed.

Its a small studio who doesn't want to spread themselves so thin. Not everything has a hidden meaning. Stop trying to start sh*t.

Its clearly not a technical issue. Have you seem the game? It is not graphically intensive in the slightest.

Well, it doesn't actually say that at all, it says they only have the resources to focus on two platforms.

You're just relying on the fact that most people only bother to read the headlines and comments.

Xbox gamers wouldn't buy it anyway... keep it over on ps

Not really harsh. It's just how he wants to the game to turn out without any sacrifice. I bet Xbox One gimps many games that could be similarly built much better with just PS4 as the sole console it's built for.

After watching the promo trailer for this game I can say... All games are not created equal. Keep this garbage. Coming from a PC gamer.

WeAreLegion1098d ago

Sounds like they don't have the money to fund all three just yet.

ShowanW1098d ago

indie "the ones who suck" developers are still beating their chest, trying to maintain that moment of fame from 18mos ago?

one thing i've learned from the 360/ps3 generation is, be prepared to sift through 1000lbs of crap before finding that gem.

if the game is good, then good on them...
