Finally a developer has come out and said what most of us already know. Working on Lords of Fallen (an arcade-like version of Dark Souls), the developer has basically come out and said what others have been a tad “scared” of admitting.
Talking about resolutions and frame rates to IGN, CI Games executive producer Tomasz Gop (worked on The Witcher) stated:
“I think if we have to choose between resolution and framerate, we’ll probably choose to go full HD 1080p and have a stable, rock-solid 30fps, rather than try to lower the resolution and push it to 60fps because we believe this game looks pretty good, so we’d rather have a decent resolution to show it off.”
Fair enough, we admire your honesty, Tomasz. Please do go on.
“We’re working very hard right now to deliver PS4 and Xbox One in 1080p but I can’t confirm whether it’s possible. It’s probably easier for me to confirm it’ll happen for PlayStation 4, because it appears on this one we’re almost nailing it and pretty much there. For Xbox One though, it’s slightly tougher and we’re still working on it, so I can’t confirm that yet.”
There we go, you said it. Getting that 1080p resolution on Xbox One is a bit harder compared to the PS4. Hmm. In all seriousness, it would be interesting to know why developers feel this way as the Xbox One isn’t exactly a slouch in terms of power. Maybe it’s like the Xbox 360 and PS3 situation all over again, just in reverse. Tell us!
