Uppercut Games revealed that City of Brass will run at 4K with HDR on Xbox One X, while PlayStation 4 Pro will run at 1080P and HDR might be patched later. The developers are also considering a Nintendo Switch port for the game.
They're certainly covering their bases!
While the Pro wouldn't be able to run 4k, there's no reason for it to be stuck at 1080p and no HDR at launch. Seems like this developer was paid to add additional resolution/feature support for xbox x instead of just making the best looking versions possible on all platforms.
From what it sounds like... the Pro will be getting some enhancements later. So it isnt all bad.
They aren't getting paid extra. It's just really easy to port from PC to Xbox compared to PS4, especially small studios. It doesn't excuse their lack of attempt to improve the Pro resolution and possibly quality, but hopefully they can do that post release.
It’s paid timed enhancements. Ol chirtopher down there saying “it’s easier”... it’s the same architecture Christopher.. the only thing separating them is more ram, stronger gpu, slightly tweaked cpu. It’s just Microsoft’s new thing to hopefully salvage anyone from jumping ship more than they have now.
***Ol chirtopher down there saying “it’s easier”... it’s the same architecture Christopher.*** Dx12...
@ Rude-ro No, what's separating them is 1.8 Tflops of GPU power, and an extra 4 GB of RAM. Nobody should be surprised by these results.
No more holding back it seems
Ms seems to be holding back on quality exclusives and 3rd party devs are filling the blanks. Ms seems to be holding back on creating games that fully utilize the power you paid 500$ for. Sony seems to invest and trust in 1st party goals and funding.
Whats sad is that you all click on these articles to see the domination and then get upset at it. LMAO "It is no coincidence that Game Pass coupled with backwards compatibility and the introduction of the X has seen Microsoft’s year on year sales grow strongly whereas in recent months year on year growth of the PlayStation 4 has plateaued" https://videogamenews.onlin... There Is No Greater Power
@Vasto Someone is delusional. Whatever you say buddy :)
I really need to start saving for a pro
Based on other games sure, but based on this game/article? why? you won't be getting much more out of it, might as well buy a regular ps4 which also runs it at 1080p. At least wait till they patch the HDR.
Damn that’s some jump from the Pro to the X, happy days
Well this the reason xbox is not doing shi,,, about new games.... You guys are just very happy with old games on 4k....dude lool at the new god of war, you prefer this or the god of war?
I have a PS4 dude since day one, but I’m glad I have an X with that kind of jump in performance. And God of War looks great, I’m not saying it doesn’t.
You guys keep saying I'm trolling but the amount of comments I see about spending $$ on the X for 4K is justified... spending extra $$ on the pro for 1080p is not money well spent the proof is in the pudding and the X is going to continue to dominate with more 4K as more game releases.
I'm pretty sure most people didn't buy a Pro for this game. Most people don't even know this game exists, its made by a small independent studio who obviously didn't have time or resources to optimize their game on the PS4 Pro. And the Xbox 1 X is not dominating anything...
Wow while the first part mite be true of what you said, did it ever occur to you that they tried to optimise the pro like they did for the rest of the consoles. But you can t be having that you fanboys now can you, instead you will throw out that they favoured the X version instead of it could be as simple as they tried to the same resolution and just couldn't. I mean come on overtime most realised that the X would do better as more developers got used to the machine it stands to say it's obvious with what's under the hood but for some reason fanboys can't admit that. It's like I know for a fine fact once the new PlayStation is out that should do better than the x, same when Microsoft bring out there new box which should do better over that playstation. It's like some people on this site can't get it into there heads that new updated tech should be doing slightly better or more than what has been out a bit ago.
lol Offering yes, dominating no.
Keep in mind that this system has only 6 months on the market. Look how many games "offers" 4K on X of the same games over 1080p on the pro. We can revisit this topic in a year.
@B1uBurneR The Xbox 1 X has all that power but GOW and HZD are still the benchmark in graphics for consoles.. Why is that?
Nothing on Xbox One X will ever look as good as Uncharted 4, Horizon and God of War do on PS4 Pro.
And still won't look as good as Sony exclusives. My $$ for my gaming PC is fully justified. Beats the hell out of what X would give and much more useful. But Sony actually gives me a reason to own a PS4. Xbox One X is just redundant hardware with nearly ZERO backing from its manufacturer. Just a waste. Dominate? lol....City of Brass, huh? I'll take God of War and the rest of the Sony library. THAT is domination.
Yeah, but no one is spending money on the pro for this game, or any other games from lazy or budget limited devs. They're spending the money to play the best looking games of this gen, like God of War.
of course upgrading from xbox one to xbox one x is worth it.xbox one is a 900p machine remember? xbox gamers can now maximize their 1080p full hd screens. for 4 years they have been gaming @900p on their full hd screens.
Depends on the games I've been playing Forza games all they were all 1080p so for me I've been getting the most out of my TV but then again the same could be said about the pro Vs the X at the end of the day unless you're playing the same game on another console side by side you would never know the difference don't get why people bring this crap up over and over
Another game that might as well be an exclusive with the difference in quality. It looks pretty cool
yeah....go with that "might as well be an exclusive". lol
I'm gonna ignore the fanboy arguments and say this is a really cool looking game. The studio might be new but the talent working there has produced many a high profile game. This could be a sleeper hit!
Never heard of the game! Seems to be the case with most articles like this.
The game looks ok but no Pro enhancements no buy for me.
but it has got pro enhancements - it's higher quality and higher graphical settings than the base models. The interview never says anywhere that it's 4k on the X, the title is saying that as it's a well known Xbox fanboy ran website. They said HDR will be implemented later on as well, so it is getting enhancements. A higher pixel count isn't the only thing that counts as an enhancement - higher graphical settings are much better then a few extra pixels
Obvious the Xbox One X is likely a direct port of the PC version and this team did not optimize the PS4 pro the best way.Also what strikes me the most in the comment it how he states the Xbox One X has higher framerate,let me thinking that PS4 pro and the other systems will run badly again due to lack of proper optimizition.
Please this is Just crapy studio. The problem isnt the pro. How can a game on the pro run with the same rez as the xbox s. One is a 4.2 teraflop machine and another 1.30 teraflop machine. Do the math. Whats even worst are gamers saying the pro is crapy because of a crapy game like this when the its where You find the best graphics. The pro set the bar to beat. And You can buy it for 349 in many retailers.
Yet City of Brass isn't the first game to have a better resolution etc on the Xbox One X over the PS4 Pro though, so are all those other games due to "just a crappy studio" like you claim because that can't be used as the excuse for every one of them can it now
Well, when you see what IS possible on the pro, these lazy pro optimizations are hard to defend.
Having better resolution isn't the problem, having no apparent attempt to maximize for the Pro is the problem it seems. Looks like this is a case of easy porting from Windows and ignoring the rest for potential.
Obviously most of us sony fans acknowledge the xboneX is more powerful than the Pro, so it's no shock when some ports have a little bump in resolution, but when it's 1/4 the resolution, possible without HRD, and is the same quality as the xbonxS version, obviously someone's being lazy.
@Christopher I did say resolution etc which includes everything to do with a game and to everyone else I'm assuming that the team is a small one with less resources than bigger studios so the fact that their first focus is on xbox doesn't make them lazy does it ?
Of course it can. Its impossible for a game to run at 1080p on the PRO if the Xbox One also runs at 1080p, except its something like tetris. I know its a very good clickbait title and good for saying crap about the PRO, but if you needed a 4.2 teraflop machine to reach just 1080, hell, this gen almost all games would be at 480p. This game should run at least at 1440p.
thats a pretty big difference.. I wonder why.. Im sure the pro is capable of checkerboard rendering
a ps3 looking game that cant do 4k on the pro... very funny xD seems these devs have 0 talent.. pls call naughty gods or santa monica for tips
the Pro gets the higher draw distance and lighting effects of the X version. Im sure it will look fine even in 1080p.
😂😂😂 oh god!
Wow look at all these stupid comments right before God of war release.
Wow, thats very poor optimalization on Pro!
What a huge difference, Xbox one x is a lot more powerful tho than the PS4 Pro, so I can see why.
Wait,it's THIS game they can't get to run above 1080p on the PS4 PRO??? https://www.youtube.com/wat... It's just some goddamn corridor fps narrow as sh!t and they can't get it to run at a resolution above 1080p when some devs pull off dynamic 4K deemed by all who saw it as very close to native 4K on an open world game like Horizon Zero Dawn??? The PS4 Pro has run games in native 4K @ 60 fps that were more complicated graphically than that.
lol yeh its called lazy devs/shit devs. dishonored 2 looked way better in the gfx department and that runs more then 1080p on the pro so it's just the crap devs either that or xbox paid for exclusive 4k 😂😂😂 then again its ms so they probably did.
Nobody noticed that the guy interviewed never once said it was 4k on the X? all he said was it's 1080p on the Pro with the higher quality textures and detail effects. The site put 4k in the title of the article, but the dev literally never said anything. For all we know, it could be 1440p or less on the X
The game has been confirmed to be enhanced for the Xbox One X. Can you tell us the full specifications of this version as well as your thoughts on the hardware as a whole? With an Xbox One X, the game will output HDR10 if your TV supports it. It’s also got 4K resolution, higher quality lighting and higher quality shadow resolution/draw distance. And of course, the framerate is higher. Basically, the game just looks and runs better.
ahh, okay - when I looked before it didn't say that for some reason :/ - Thanks :)
Lol what crappy game is this? Back to monster hunter.
Seems funny. X1X doesn't have 4 times the power. 1080p to 4k is 4 times the pixels. Something else going on here. I would have suspected the usual 50% difference (4k vs 1600p or whatever), not this. I suspect the 1080p version is less optimized or actually has more effects on while the X1X version is running higher resolution.
As always no power is greater than the X 👍🏻
Better machine you get a better product
Why would the pro be 1080p, when the ps4 is 1080p. Smells fishy.
So this game just doesn't have PS4 Pro Support?
People talk about God of war like there will never be anything better. Glad it's getting such high praise because it will make Xbox developers push their games that much more and it justifies the fact that the single player campaigns are far from dying...just give it time and we'll see more and more single player adventure games being developed (for all platforms, exclusive and 3rd party) using god of war as a benchmark. on the other hand, take fortnite as an example. For a free game it's managed to pull in $126 million in february alone which I doubt god of war will do in the same time frame.
half ass optimization for the PS4 pro
