King Art Games however notes it won't "write specific code for any of the platforms".
So much for having to cater to the largest install base above all else. I guess this throws all that kind of talk about the window
For this dev, surely. Who said every dev would adhere to the higher install base?
@ G-haul: Really? I've seen sporadic examples of this. Never mind if you even know if they are "Sony fans" or not.
Lmao ok indie devs are the gospel for how 3rd party games will go on larger install base big pappy u played yourself
Reasonably wouldn’t an indie dev be less likely to support Pro or 1X? They have less time, money, and resources.
It's starting to get under your skin isn't it? Watching the cases pile on. It started with Mordor, and can you believe it? This is going to be the case for every PS4 Pro/Xbox One X comparison! I know this hurts. Seriously when I picture Sony fanboys now, I picture toddlers getting their booster shots. Red faced, dripping with tears, (maybe a little snot) and squealing in fear. They absolutely can't stand what is transpiring before their eyes.
Only an indie? Look at all the 100+ games already to receive Xbox One X enhancements... I don't think it's only this one indie developer... Are those well over 100+ games indie based games? Here is a link to games receving updates to take advantage of X1X power. Heck of a lot more than just indie games on that list. https://www.windowscentral....
@TheDBD That is funny as hell and you xboners do love revising history if MS hadn't gotten their asses handed to them would they have waited a whole year just to have slightly better specs for a whole generational leap over the xbox one. I swear some of you MS lost deal with that. Even if you want to brag about better specs that won't last long considering the consoles will no longer take years in RD. Sony has already said the PS5 is coming expect it no later than 2020, so you get to brag for a couple of years yet MS can't be bother to actually make the most important aspect of a consoles identity GAMES.
what about the poor little Xbox one? Only the Switch has less grunt under the hood.
@chucky cute list now come back and kiss the ring [red ring 4 u xbots ] when you its not native its a reason native 4k not splashed across
Say that when we see how many people buy the game.
How? So the standard PS4 version will obviously be better than standard Xbone version then, if this dev keeps to their word of course.
What base PS4 game isn't better than its base Xbox One counterpart? The PS4 (base) versions of games have been better for years? Why would that stop now? You're acting like this hasn't been a thing since 2013.
"KING Art Games is a German video game developer. The company is responsible for creating the point-and-click adventure The Book of Unwritten Tales" So much for thinking this developer matters.
Wait pacifying a group of people that are in the popular group by preventing a more capable device from performing better... so should we artificially restrict the horsepower of a corvette bc a ford mustang can't compete? Are you a socialist moron or something? geez fanboys don't want x1x bc of the library of games sony offers and that is great... i love those games too. Desiring restriction from developers to keep a marketing edge is just pathetic example of how fanboys fail to give a crap about gaming and care more about a corporation
"So, yes, if a system is more powerful it’ll get the better version of the game, but we’re probably not going to write specific code for any of the platforms.” Am I the only person who takes probably as not a definitive no? Probably does hold context.
Nice to know strengths of both consoles will be utilized
Every time I see a title like this I dont even have to look....its gamingbolt lol. Simple equation: Dev you've never heard of + game youve never heard of + something positive about xboxx = gamingbolt.
Nailed it!! :'D Gamingbolt almost sucks as hard as DSOG!!
Yep same downplayers to like you
Nice to see this. We should get the most out of every platform we purchase. If you can use rumble triggers on Xbox One, do it. If you can use the touch pad on PS4, do it. If one console is better the game should always show it.
Now tay ms has the more powerful console....xbots are against parity? Sigh.
No One is aiming for parity.
Steam punk rts. Hmmm different but Seems pretty sweet to me. Hope it's a good game when it releases.
This game must allow consoles to utilize keyboard and mouse configuration. My biggest fear is a dumb down rts game on PC to appease console gamers. I am pretty sure console gamers are ready for a complex down to the detail games
So many butthurt here. The X Is for real, accept it.
Not really anything to accept and there isn't anything new about this article (or type of article). It's merely one dev saying they won't aim for parity. That's how I'd prefer it and how it should have been from the beginning, with the PS4 being the more powerful system.
They can't, lol. The downvotes are indicative of rage. Well, they're going to be upset for awhile.
As it should be
Who? Failingbolt obscure dev clickbait piece of the day.
Developers should make the best games each hardware allows.
So as PS4 and XBO i hope.
Good for Iron Harvest!!! These articles tickle me it's always games or devs I've never heard of.
That's how it should be
And that's the way it should be.
Good. Leverage that Xbox One X power. I'm pretty sure a developer doesn't care if this makes fanboys of a certain machine come to tears. They're doing their jobs to the best of their ability.
You're no better than the fanboys you're attacking. You're all over this thread with the same nonsense. You finally got your win and you're doing all you can to rub it in people's faces. Way to go! You and your 15 year old friends must be so excited little fanboy 😂
I'm excited, but I'm not what you think I am. I love everything PlayStation. I'm actually looking forward to TLoU2 more than any other item in gaming. Yes, that includes the Xbox One X. Honestly, over the years, I've surmised that Sony fanboys are the absolute worst group I've ever seen on the internet. Period. That says a lot. I joined the 'Spartacus: Blood and Sand' forums back in 2010, and different characters actually had their own groups of fanboys. In the case of Spartacus, the 'Gannicus' fanboys were particularly rabid, yet still failed to reach the unprecedented levels of rabidity that I've found in fanboys of the Sony PlayStation brand. I've never seen a more aggressive, intolerant, and overall bitter group. I must say (as immature as it sounds) it's somewhat amusing seeing the Sony fanboys curl up and twitch in madness the closer the Xbox One X is to release, and whenever a new Digital Foundry video shows Xbox One X versions of games to be superior. Because we all know that any advantage the Microsoft brand has absolutely drives the Sony crowd into an angry furor, for whatever odd reason. Yeah, I'm excited about the future of gaming, but a small part of me is also enjoying this.
if you pationate about your work you'll make something the best you can for each system you develop for...
This í how it should be. Developers should always try to target the best performance/visuals, regardless of what other consoles can handle. I'm glad that I've had the better multiplats for 4 years, and I'm glad Xbox owners will get to enjoy the slighty better visuals, albeit a bit late into the gen. Having said that, the majority of developers aren't going to strive to deliver major differences and use extra time and resources for a install base that's so much smaller compared to PS. What do developers get for putting in extra man hours and money into a small user base? There will be a few games where the developers will put forth the effort, but where we should really see the X1X shine is through their first party studios. Aside from maybe Halo 6/Gears 6, what first party games can we expect to actually harness the extra power of the X1X?
Who? I love all these obscure developers now boldly proclaiming the merits of a yet released piece of kit. When they see the microscopic install base, perhaps that tune will change.
Line in the Sand, choose your weapon. Tank verses The High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle (HMMWV), commonly known as the Humvee, is a four-wheel drive military light truck. In all fairness it's the same Stan The High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle (HMMWV), commonly known as the Humvee, is a four-wheel drive military light truck death took with our face system In all fairness it's the same stance developers took with the base systems.
It took three Xbox consoles to get where they are now. I guess Sony should go ahead and release a third PS4 with more horsepower..so it can compete with the Xbox One X. It'd be nice if it had the ability to play all Playstation games (1-4 and Vita).
2. The One S is just a slim Xbox no different than the slim PS4. So they both have 3. The One S got a slight gpu bump specifically to handle 4k streaming content and hdr processing. Nothing more. Let’s make a chart here. PS4 / PS4 Slim / PS4 Pro. Xbox One / Xbox One S(lim) / Xbox One X You see how fanboy glasses distort reality? The Pro ended up where it did because everyone was worried about it being 399 and not more so the hardware made concessions to hit that. The difference was MS said well if we’re gonna have a premium version let’s make it actually premium and not half ass it like the pro to match its price. Sure it costs 100 more but it makes up for that by owning the pro in the process with performance. No different than the base PS4 did the original Xbox one, just with an actual substantial power difference instead . I would have paid 499 for a PS4 pro that was better, but MS did make something better and now I’m waiting for my order.
Not true, the Xbox one S has a chips off the single chip bridge that the original Xbox did not have Like the original Xbox one is not HDR compliance, but the Xbox one s is.due to that change in chips. Where as all ps4 systems are infact HDR compliment.
Not the first and won’t be the last. Glad I ordered the x.
The thing is, most game engines are pretty easy to scale. It’s not like you need separate studios to make versions. It’s literally not hard for them to start high and optimize down (which is almost like adjusting graphics setting on a pc - they are just doing it behind the scenes for you to make it the best they can make the system run it). That’s also the most cost effective too. And most studios make pc versions already so those already have high res assets etc. even beyond that, the one x can still use all of its power to just run a non-enhanced game better. So even if this was at parity with the PS4 pro visually, the one x would just run that setup even faster and smoother. Or kick up the frame rate. I think that’s awesome and it’s amazing to me that people would be bothered by great hardware that is impressive simply because it isn’t a PlayStation. F that. I just want the best versions on console, period. That’s why i bought the Pro and that’s why there will soon be a one X sitting next to it. The pro will be my Ps4 exclusives machine and EVERYTHING ELSE I’m buying on the X from here on out.
It's a stupid argument that makes people think that higher level assets don't already exist for the PC version. When they exist for the PC version (low, medium, high, very high, ultra) they can pick and choose from whatever level a Pro or X1X can take and tweak them from there. Takes a real 'special' person to argue that they won't do this because they would then have to make special assets. They already exist.
It's a RTS who cares.
Hopefully it means the PC version remains complex and deep. Does not get streamlined for console sake. RTS games on consoles would work a lot better if Sony/Microsoft added keyboard and mouse. Yes both the PS4 and Xbox One are kb and m compatible but Sony/Microsoft still force to make games with gamepad only.
“Three for PCs (high, medium, low + custom) and one for each console. For each setting we’ll try to figure out the best compromise between visuals and performance. So, yes, if a system is more powerful it’ll get the better version of the game, but we’re probably not going to write specific code for any of the platforms.” -dev "It’s good to see the developer keeping the Xbox One’s strengths in mind along with prioritizing graphics for different PC settings as well."-author kinda rude for the author of the article to be as biased as this statement leads me to believe. Plenty of developers know that its not just raw power that creates better gwafixx, theres a lot of things to consider, so it'll be interesting to see the difference. By now we know that the xbox one x is more powerful than the ps4 pro, but that doesn't necessarily mean its more capable. Cant wait to see how this game turns out, we obviously have to see how the games run on the base current gen hardware(xbox one and ps4). I'll be following this closely.
Dev of a game no-one has ever heard of says something. Got any other news?
The Base ps4 will smoke the Xbox one x every month until the Ps5 comes out that's a fact...
Wow. Good luck to this guy, trying to get Sony's version of OpenGL to run on Xbox or PC, or DirectX 11/12 to run on the PS4. Something tells me they *have* to write platform-specific code... I dunno maybe he is just smarter than all the other devs in the universe though, yeah? /s
