The Xbox One vs. PS4 1080p debate is an unwinnable war, says Titanfall developer

Gamespot :

"There's been no shortage of debate concerning the ongoing "war" between Microsoft and Sony in the battle for the living room. One argument that constantly makes the rounds is the fact that right now, more PlayStation 4 games run in 1080p than they do on Xbox One. In fact, one of the Xbox One's biggest and most important titles to date--Respawn Entertainment's multiplayer shooter Titanfall--does not run in 1080p. But the debate over respective resolutions between platforms does not interest Titanfall producer Drew McCoy.

"It's the console wars. It's Sega does what Nintendon't," McCoy told GameSpot at PAX East about why he believes the 1080p debate has gathered so much attention this year. "There's going to be games that look better on one or the other. There's going to be exclusives that look better, for whatever reason. And we never set out to engage in the tech war. I feel like that's a war that no one actually wins."

"We don't care about resolution but we'll still find a way patch up the resolution."

Well, uhh...thanks, I guess?

JoGam2273d ago

This guy doesn't care about profit or resolution.

stuna12273d ago

Seems like he doesn't care about much of anything! I wonder if he cares if his family eats or not?

GTgamer2273d ago (Edited 2273d ago )

If he doesnt care that the game is 792p on a Next Gen Console then he needs to start caring about something.

ScareFactor2273d ago

He didn't make the console though so what can he do about it?

Dudebro902273d ago

Cuz resolution makes a better game right.

Oh wait it doesn't.

GTgamer2273d ago

Here the thing that freaks me out about you guys its A (Next Gen Console) with more power to push games to higher levels but nooooooo since we like Titanfall we can let 792p slide -_- yes resolution doesn't make a game better but thats not the point and you know it because if you don't care about Resolution I'm guessing you bought the 360 version since its the same experience right?

BX812273d ago

@ gt
Are you implying every next gen game should be 1080p 60 fps?

GTgamer2273d ago

Did I say anything about fps :/

Exactly....They care so little for resolution they lead you to believe that they've already sacrificed how the game runs to get it above 720 already and now want to further hurt the performance to try and get their game up to at least 900p. Actions speak louder than words and their actions contradict what they're saying. Previously they were on record saying "framerate is king" and eluded that took precedence over resolution yet here they are actively trying to get the resolution up because people are knocking their game for it. At this point I don't believe anything anyone from Respawn says as they've been proven to be liars already. They told us there never was a single player campaign which with Geoffrey Keighley ' s piece that came out yesterday clearly says otherwise. Respawn cut out the single player campaign it DID exist after all so since they've already been caught lying once and what they're doing now says they are willing to sacrifice how the game runs even more I just can't take Respawn at their word they'll tell us anything even if it's a lie.

Um... what? He's talking about the fight about 1080p resolution between console and there being no winner. Is he joking? Obviously the one that wins is Sony. The PS4 is the more powerful of the 2 consoles and is more capable of producing a higher resolution. So it's simple. Sony can what xbone won't. How is this even a debate?

There is no magical button to press that is going to improve the power of the xbone console enough to be able to do what the PS4 can. Their "cloud" isn't going to double its power, and any improvement it can provide will require owners to have a stable and fast internet connection. And God forbid they do the unthinkable and actually release a new version of the xbone with improved specs in order to get better performance from their games.

Well if History tells us anything!!! And mark my words i'm not a fanboy for either system! I have all three consoles, but anyways back to what I was saying! If history says anything, "Sega does what Nintendon't!" which company is still making consoles and games! With Nintendo aside, id say the better console doesn't always win the war!!! Look at 3DO, Jaguar, lynx, game gear, Atari, and Sega, although each of them put in their form of innovation that's help shape it into what the industry is today, many of them are just that, History!! All this fanboy/flameboy~ism crap is for the birds! Grow up and enjoy what you got!

But Sony's home consoles have Sold an excess of 70 million 3 times. They have a portable handheld that's sold over 70 million the only 2 that haven't from their portfolio is the PSVita and PS4.. And that's because they are new! History seems to say Sony is doing fine!!

"It's the console wars. It's Sega does what Nintendon't," McCoy told GameSpot at PAX East. ;)

Clogmaster2273d ago

Except in this case it's not that same war as back then. This time the architectures are more similar, so one platform is superior on every front compared to the other this time.

Curious if more companies might start going back to 3rd party exclusives like SNES/PS1 era.

namEuser2273d ago

By a devp'rs stand point, he's correct. Giving the engine a game is made on a devpr can only do so much to the point where the game turns out OK with little variances that may not live up specs for what others seem fit, but the end result is suited to be OK. Tired of hearing every1 asking why not 1080p or why not 60fps...really, prime example is "Ryse" not 1080p but the game is absolutely beautiful...OK, "Forza 5 looks great considering some cuts here and there, but these are early gen cool. For any1 sitting here thinking that this is justifying saying this is what to expect from MS new console is just plain pompous... PERIOD

Yeah...unwinnable for MS's XB1.
