Blizzard Entertainment has confirmed that Diablo III Eternal Collection will run with a 960p resolution at 60 frames per second on Nintendo Switch when docked in TV Mode, and 720p at 60 frames per second in Handheld Mode.
Switch, the first next gen console out of the gate and it can’t even hit 1080p. Glad I didn’t accidentally make an impulse buy one one yet.
“Switch, the first next gen console out of the gate and it can’t even hit 1080p.” It’s a portable console. Did you expect a supercomputer?
Well people are comparing it to the PS4 and Xbox 1. You can’t have both. In that case it should be compared to the vita and 3ds.
@2pacalypsenow - didn't know the Vita or 3DS were getting Diablo 3 anytime soon, let alone Wolf 2, Doom 1 / 2, etc. How can we compare it to those handhelds when it runs circles around them? I am sure we could have had 1080p, but then people would gripe because it was only 30fps. This thing is 1/20th the size.. and you are griping about 900p vs 1080p?
There’s portable devices that can hit 4K. Most portable devices do 1080 in this day and age. You really don’t need a “supercomputer” to make it happen either.
@TheUndertaker85 - show me which handheld devices run games like Wolfenstein 2 at 4K. Angry Birds on a Note 5 doesn't count genius.
@theundertaker There aren’t alot of phone/portable devices that has 4K screen yet (due to battery issue) and those who are available on the market cost an arm and a leg compared to the Switch. Plus, just like Neonrider said, what are you gonna play on those phones? Angry Bird?
I mean, the game is over 8 years old at this point though.
@bluefox755 - May 2012 this game released. So your math is a little off.
@neonridr You are correct. I don't know why I thought 2010. Still though, 6 years is a long time. It came out last gen, and wasn't exactly graphically cutting edge back then. I'd say my point still stands, despite the error.
Actually it's entirely in line with what you'd expect next gen handhelds to accomplish. The 3DS and Vita couldn't even do 720p and actually struggled with what they were accomplishing. And now we have a handheld system capable of running games appearing on home consoles. But if you want me to take your dedication to high end gaming seriously I hope you're in possession of atleast a GTX 1080, 16gbs of RAM and an I7 Processor or equivilant. 4k monitor of course with G-Sync and at about 120hz at least too?
4k @120hz? You’re joking right. Not even a TI can do that unless you turn everything to low and even then.
@2pacalypsenow What am I joking about? I said a 4k monitor at 120hz? Did you misread my comment?
Well a 120hrtz 4k monitor would do u zero good with a 1080
@larrysweet So you're going to claim that 1080 can run nothing at 4k? Do you only play brand new games and not play anything else in your library? I was recently replaying Dead Space 2 in 4k and it was really cool to see one of my favorite games with a much sharper image at a great frame rate. Also, most F2P games can easily be played at max settings at 4k with a 1080 so im not seeing the "zero good" part.
you could do that, but its more practical to go 1440p 144hz and gsync.
@kevnb - agreed. I have a 1080ti and I run a 165Hz monitor at 1440p. I would rather the higher framerates than trying to push 4K at sub-par frames. 1440 still looks glorious.
Mr. I buy games for resolution... There's always one.
Nah it’s a more of the case of, “I’m gonna complain(troll) on something I never intended to buy.”
@fonger I like that better actually as well
oh I am sure if it was 30fps it would have done 1080p easily. Devs wanted the fluidity of 60fps. I am fine with that.
You do realize you just made yourself look stupid. When Fast RMX runs at 1080p 60fps which was a launch title.
you are right in that the nintendo switch doesn't always hit the 1080P mark. But when you grab that controller and play the games on it, man its just hella fun, and you really forget to care about the resolution because you're just having too much fun playing. Resolution is an after thought. You can't bind nintendo to the same standards as other developers, because the gameplay somehow always manages to captivate your attention and reminds you that hey, bleeding edge graphics isn't everything. Anyone who's played Breath of the Wild, or Odyssey will attest to this. Can't wait for smash bros and mario party, and metroid prime 4!!
i can feel your retardedness from another galaxy....
Doesn't the normal Xbox One run this at 900p? I'd say this is pretty impressive.
You talking about Xbox one or the switch? That released at 900p on the Xbox one, so nice to see the switch is beating that at least.
I laugh at your consoles that struggle with 60fps until recently.
I’d rather take framerate over resolution to be honest. Also by now we all know the Switch is underpowered due to the portability nature of the console, so I don’t know why people still beating that dead horse. Despite that, the Switch is a fantastic little console and by now some people should learn to accept that.
I’m surprised you have the mental capacity to make a comment on this website when you can’t distinguish the difference between a portable handheld games console and a heavy unit console like an Xbox One X...
I know, hard to believe that we can take a huge game like this on the go with this performance! Before 2018, you could not take a console game on the go without shoddy streaming tactics. Gaming on the go has come a long way since 2012, that is certainly clear.
And soon, Doom Eternal and Dark Soul on the go. Technology has come a long long way.
When people criticize the switch, I just dont get it lol. Theres really nothing negative to take away from nintendo and sony this gen imo. 🤷🏽♂️
People seem to forget, Xbox One ran this at 900p when the game launched on it.
Now it runs at 4k
Does it though? Did it receive a patch?
Xbox one still runs it at 900p* So only if you end up spending an addition 500$ do you get "4k" for diablo 3
@Sm00thNinja: Yes it did, both for PS4 Pro and Xbox One X. https://www.eurogamer.net/a...
Years after the original X1 release.
Not on og xbone it doesnt.
No it's still 900p
The graphics are dimmed down for the switch version compared to PS4 and Xbox one. So your argument is not valid. Although kudos for making it 720p 60fps on portable mode, blizzard did a good job with this port, hope more games head to the switch. I own D3 on PC and PS4, but I might grab a switch second hand just to play D3 on the go. Shame the new Torchlight wasn't announced for the switch.
The topic is resolution so obviously it's valid
oh and you still paying 300 plus dlls for that.
$300 for Diablo 3? What a mad world we are living in. /s
yeah sorry my bad , is almost 400 bucks for the switch and the game , a game that can even reach full HD in 2018, oh I almost forgot Diablo 3 was released in May 2012, sorry but people can colored the Switch in whatever color they want , but for me for obvious logical reasons the Switch has some pretty pathetic specs for this time and era, the main issue here is that thing of what it offers no way in hell or Diablo's hell it justifies a 300 dlls price tag, it should be no more of 150 bucks.
@masterfox - hey man, feel free to point me to another handheld device that I can play Diablo 3 on with better frames/resolution and I am all ears my friend. Fortunately there are so many other titles worth playing on the Switch. Who buys a console for one game? Are you going to tell me that there aren't any other titles worth owning on the Switch? Are we really trying that hard to troll today?
SWITCH IS KILLING IT BABY
Is it just me or is graphics more cartoony? Kinda like it
that's the style of this game vs the previous ones.
Might look into this, rpgs are nice to have on the switch
To all the baby snowflakes here bitching about the Switch at 720p 60 portable mode or 960p docked... ill wait till you show me a device that can play D3 like this in both portable or docked. #GenerationXSnowflakes
What frames and such does Diablo 3 run on the regular PS4?
double posts sucks
Salty commenters are funny. So much hate on the switch. A 1000 USD Macbook Air can't run Diablo on [email protected] and people complain about the switch. Same thing on phones. Even if they manage to port it to any of the existing phones, I doubt they'll be able to hit [email protected] And even if they did, a capable phone currently runs at 700 to 1000 USD.
I took this headline as nothing but positive, yet so much negativity here. I hate N4G community, but damn if I'm not addicted to it. Port has solid performance. more than I expected tbh
N4G can’t stand any good news for Nintendo or MS If “gamers” are getting on this site to leave the first comment, they don’t have a lot of games to play. They’d rather be cheerleaders 🙅♀️🙆🏽 ♀️🤷🏼♀️
