Sunset Overdrive is available now on PC after managing to end up as an Xbox One exclusive for close to four years. Here’s a comparison between the PC version on Ultra vs. Xbox One at 900p.
1080p 60 on PC at ultra settings is nice & clear and looks to be what the X should be able to do if they ever release an X patch. The game is still fun to play.
I’m not sure the x can do 60 FPS, it still has a fairly weak cpu. I could see them give it a big resolution boost and maybe upping some settings though.
They could try for a performance mode (1080p unlocked frame rate) and a quality mode (4k 30). Even 45-50 fps is still better than 30.
"I’m not sure the x can do 60 FPS" Dreamcast did 60fps 200Mhz cpu PS2 did 60fps 300mhz Stop with the X,Y,Z console can't do 60fps. It's up to the developers to fill the basket with what they want. If they want 60fps then maybe they have to leave out some other taxing CPU task, like lower res shadows, physics, poor lighting, or Resolution. 4k 60 titles: Forza 7, Madden, Super lucky's tale, path of exhile, Doom, plus many more... Point being 60fps or more is capable depending on what the developers choose to leave out. it always has been this way from PS1/ Sega Saturn.
@darthv72 when cpu limited it doesn’t matter what resolution they use, this being an open world game I’m assuming they are too cpu limited for 60fps.
@bioneo why are you ignoring the context? There are 60 FPS games on the x and even the og xbox one, however open world games are cpu heavy and 60fps is most likely out of the question for this hardware. Lowering shadows and resolution would do almost nothing to boost cpu performance, lowering physics would. But considering this is a an open world game, they would have to reduce everything cpu related to the point where the game feels empty and lifeless to hit 60fps (or at the very least very dated). The cpus found in current gen systems aren’t even really much of a step up from last gen cpus, the gpus are what got a big boost. All the games you listed aren’t cpu bound, go look at some pc benchmarks to see what I mean.
wow 5 disagrees for saying resolution doesnt really matter when you are cpu bound, what do you guys think the gpu does? This isnt software rendering... The cpu does about the same amount of work no matter what resolution the gpu is outputting at. Maybe it would help if i explained how things work, the cpu tells the gpu what to do and the gpu actually outputs to the screen. The cpu doesnt actually send more information to the gpu when you render at a higher resolution, it just says render at x resolution and the gpu does that work. Very old games used software rendering, but we are way past that era.
To add more to my previous comment, think of xbox one x enahnced games. Most of them use the same assets and they just change the configuration to output at higher res, notice the one x only has a slight boost in cpu but a huge boost in gpu which is why most games get higher resolution but not 60 fps... although shooters tend to be mostly gpu bound so some can get a 60 fps mode.
The PC version looks incredible. Can't wait to try it out on my gtx 2070
Are you sure it is a GTX 2070? Not a GTX 1070 or an RTX 2070?
I'm sure its a Rtx 2070 but didn't know a typo error would cause a lot of fanboys LMAO
This got weird.
You can tell it looks way cleaner and crisp on PC compared to Xbox, even just at 1080p.
Been replaying the game at 4K60 on my 1080Ti, actual asset quality doesn't appear improved at all however the huge increase in resolution makes the game look much better.
Nice really need to play this game. Think I'll add it to my play next game after I've finished Mario oddisy. Love being a dad but sucks for gaming haha
games seem to take so much longer to complete these days which also makes it harder to play everything. back in the day most games could be completed in less than 10 hours now we have huge open world games like rdr2 taking over 60 hours to complete. I still need to play shadow of the tomb raider, nier automata, horizon zero dawn, spider man and hollow knight before feb next year when we have games like resident evil 2, metro exodus, division 2, shadows die twice, anthem and crackdown 3 ( only playing crackdown because it's free on gamepass ). you will love sunset overdrive, what do you think to Mario oddisy. I haven't got a switch (yet)
Yeah I agree games take longer but I am also a dad now so have less time time game. I'm switching between Mario and horizon 4 at the moment. Love Mario though close to the end now but for me another must play game by Nintendo once I complete this I'll be getting pokemon for the switch and switching between an xbox ip and that.
Hopefully all console game owners get it free .
it's already been free with gwg and pretty sure its on gamepass
Meant the pc version as i have it digital on console guess i meant cross buy .
@2ndhandcorn Oh got ya. kinda like play anywhere
So better on PC what a surprise. My God did Insomniac step their game up big time for Spider-Man.
I'm enjoying it and it does look better on PC!
Such a good game
Looks good on both, and the Steam version really got a good reception.
