PS4 and Xbox One graphics disparity continues: Trials Fusion runs at 1080p on PS4 and 900p on Xbox


"Ubisoft is about to release the next entry in its motorcycle-platforming series on consoles and PC next week, and — like other multiplatform games — it has a slightly higher resolution on the PlayStation 4 than on the Xbox One.

Trials Fusion hits Wednesday for the PS4, Xbox One, and Xbox 360 (and PC on April 24), and developer RedLynx promises that it runs at a smooth 60 frames per second on all of those systems. It will not, however, run at the same resolution. Ubisoft has confirmed to GamesBeat that Fusion will run at 1080p on PS4 and 900p on Xbox One. Those numbers refer to the number of horizontal lines the game is rendering for every frame of animation."

Wow,MS really needs to get those updated drivers[they claimed fixed performance]to developers..Its crazy when an indie game can't be full HD on a 500 dollar console.

I agree. Like it or not, being a fanboy or not, most people should admit that the X1 is not worth 500€. It's a overpriced piece of hardware... Microsoft is trying to imitate Apple with it's overpriced products. At this moment the X1 should be priced 350-400€ and (if existed and if Microsoft were smart) a Kinect-less X1 should be priced at 300€.

I know the most important thing that defines a console are it's games, but it's inadmissible that a game like Trials Fusion runs only at 900p on the X1.

Gozer3450d ago

If you don't own an X1 you really cant credibly comment on what the X1 is worth. Sure you can state your opinion but I would listen to someone who owns one more closely than some random poster stating their opinion. I own an X1 and it has been great. I actually bought 2 at launch, one for me, one for my son and I have no regrets.

T23450d ago

Totally agree and price cuts this early such as titanfall plus xbl for 449 proves that it's overpriced because price is set by consumers, and at 499 they said hell no

MysticStrummer3450d ago

@Gozer - MS themselves has admitted XB1 was overpriced by dropping that price and including what was supposed to be their biggest system seller for free.

I bought a launch PS3 for full price and never regretted it, but even I know it was priced too high for the market's liking.

Tempest3173450d ago (Edited 3450d ago )


I understand you giving more weight to the opinion of an owner vs non owner, but you cant really say non owners cant credibly comment on what its worth. I know All the functions and I also know and understand the hardware is my opinion not credible? The reason I havemt bought one is its not worth the price youre saying for my opinion that its overpriced to be valid, I would have had to bought one at full msrp? Just so I can credibly say it wasnt worth the money? Seems a little ridiculous to me.

Edit: if the price was $400 id probably get one...if it was $350 Id have one for sure

I have yet to see any solid proof of anything that will improve the graphical power output of the Xbox. I have no doubt drivers will help in the long term, but not to the extent that is being claimed.

fr0sty3450d ago

Then there's also the fact that Sony has its own team of coders typing away creating new PS4 drivers as well. Both systems will benefit from software upgrades over the course of the generation.

Sethry1013450d ago

Exactly, I have never understood the argument that drivers will help one consol catch up to another.

Firstly software can never compensate for hardware.

Secondly, both console will see driver updates, not just one.

Jumper093450d ago

SDK updates wont fix missing Hardware power. People still forget that the Memory Setup is worse and the GPU is way weaker than the PS4 GPU.

People have to accept that Xbone Hardware for what it is.

"People have to accept that Xbone Hardware for what it is."

I think people already accepted and are enjoying their boxes it is the PS4 fans who keep talking and keep bringing the same thing over and over

TitanUp3450d ago

software tools can get better for X1 and ps4 but when it comes to hardware being as they are closed they cant get any better.

"I think people already accepted and are enjoying their boxes it is the PS4 fans who keep talking and keep bringing the same thing over and over" - The recent hopes of supposed 2X improvement and cloud rendering possibilities says otherwise.

u got owned3450d ago


Having hopes of the box improving (which it will and if you think otherwise then you are blind) and enjoying their boxes is completely different. Its like saying "i dont want my ps4 to improve because im happy about how it performing right know)

scotmacb3450d ago

Anyway you get a really good game now on uour system xbox owners have been playing these for years

Kayant3450d ago (Edited 3450d ago )

@u got owned

Good point I can't disagree with that I should have been more clear before. I was more trying to say that some people still have it in their minds that there the disparity between the two consoles will end given we know the specs, we have seen how launch games and post launch games have performed, both consoles will see improvements as time goes on yet they believe a API(software) update will somehow make the XB1 more powerful than the PS4 or on par with it in every title because that's what that supposed 2X performance will do.

misterxmedia must be throwing a fit right now.

MasterCornholio3450d ago

Didn't Mr.X say that Microsoft wanted to hold back the Xbox Ones power to surprise Sony later on in the generation?

In my opinion he is crazy and his followers (like Truefan,georgeenoob, green powers) are crazy as well.

amazinglover3450d ago

Agreed also with the rate at the updates have been coming it would seem the MS wanted to have a release of November this year and only brought it out last year as to not give Sony a year head start.

k3rn3ll3450d ago

Well that's common knowledge man. Its not really a secret. Also why d12 isn't out yet is it was suppose to coincide with launch or shortly thereafter.

lifeisgamesok3450d ago (Edited 3450d ago )

It goes back to the statement Microsoft made

They said they are giving developers the option of better quality of pixels or more pixels

These developers were probably just lazy

If Forza is 1080p this game could be too and have great quality pixels in 1080p

900p and 1080p is the most subtle difference anyway

gameslayer24113450d ago

I still don't get how people who sink multiple hours out of their lives, of spending time with family, to fully commit to working ridiculously hard on a project, can be called lazy. You can't say that somebody who's whole pay check revolves around the success of a game, would be lazy in their job. That is plain stupid, and an utterly rude statement. Grow the hell up dude, before you call someone lazy, you got out there, and you make a game and pour your life into it, then when it doesn't match up to fanboy standards, deal with being called lazy when you did your best. Man...Shove off....

Kayant3450d ago

"They said they are giving developers the option of better quality of pixels or more pixels" - Looooooooool this is golden. Seriously better quality *pixels*. Yh right the magical upscaler fixes everything doesn't....

"These developers were probably just lazy" - So lazy that this isn't the first time we have seen a disparity between both consoles when a game is 60fps or 1080p.

"If Forza is 1080p this game could be too" - That's true but it sacrificed a lot of visual effects to get there.

HeWhoWalks3450d ago (Edited 3450d ago )

Forza 5 is an anomaly, as evidenced by the disparity between how many games run in 1080p on the PS4 (both exclusive and 3rd party) and the ones that do on the X1. Besides, without a shred of proof, your claims of "laziness" sound more like a deterrent and a "please understand" attitude more than anything else.

Make no mistake, I have no doubt that the X1 can output games (in specific situations, given what we know about the hardware) in 1080p, but it's having trouble matching the PS4 because, well, weaker hardware is weaker hardware.

Applejack3450d ago (Edited 3450d ago )

First of all, to say the developers are just lazy when you don't have a clue about the process is ridiculous. Second, everyone knows the only reason Forza 5 ran at 1080p was because it was majorly downgraded (look at Sethry101 and The_Infected's comments). Finally, you downplay the difference between 1080p and 900p so with that logic, you wouldn't mind Forza 5 to be at 900p since you apparently can't tell?

Sarcasm3450d ago (Edited 3450d ago )

Ah yes, when all else fails. Say the developers are lazy.

So I guess all these developers are Lazy then,

Crytek - Ryse
Capcom - Dead Rising 3
Respawn - Titanfall
Konami - MGS GZ
Infinity Ward - COD Ghosts
Rare - Killer Instinct

Need I go on?

ger23963450d ago (Edited 3450d ago )

If its subtle, Microsoft should just make all games on xbox1 900p. Problem solved.

ger23963450d ago (Edited 3450d ago )

Double post

GarrusVakarian3450d ago (Edited 3450d ago )

I disagree, MS isn't giving the devs anything but the hardware, the devs themselves make the options in terms of resolution based off of said hardware.

"Quality of pixels" doesn't mean what you think it means. The quality of pixels completely depends on the panels that manufactures use for TV's and monitors.

And calling a group of people who's bills are paid by putting thousands of hours into making games lazy is just plain rude and ignorant imo.

Why o why3450d ago

Arghh, the good ol 'run to forza' retort......ill call this the 'jimmy falon'

I've heard many tout ms as the software dons but even they can only do so much with the weaker hardware. Things will improve but they will also improve on the ps4

mixelon3450d ago

Hahahaha! "better quality pixels". XD


esemce3449d ago

Microsoft were they lazy and disrespectful ones as they knew they had their loyal fans by the balls deeply invested/hooked on Xb live and could get away with skimping costs on the hardware to cater to to the casual multimedia crowd. The hardcore gamers came last to them.
