Final Haze Resolution Confirmed

There has been much debate over the actual resolution for Haze, especially because some hands-on experiences with the demo have been in contrast to the previously reported 720p resolution. Well, Ripten confirmed this once and for all with Free Radical's Derek Littlewood, creative lead for the upcoming PS3 FPS.

Littlewood said the final product will "indeed render at 1024x576," which is a different story than what Ubisoft recently said on the official PlayStation blog. Thing is, Haze will run at 720p because the PS3 is capable of upscaling, but this is not the same as the game's native resolution. Littlewood talks more about the situation, and why the team decided to adopt a less-than-HD resolution:

"We prioritize a nice smooth framerate over a different res. Personally, I donít really buy the whole thing. People did the same with Call of Duty, they did the same with Halo, and they say with those games ĎItís not running at true HD!í And itís like, I donít care. If the game looks good and it runs smoothly, those are the important things to me."

When asked if the decision to use a lower resolution for gameplay came later on in the development phase, Littlewood talked about the process of creating an engine. He said that "as all the pieces slot into place, you end up realizing what sort of resolution you can run it at." While we agree to some extent with his prior comments - GTAIV barely runs at 640p, and it's still one of the best games ever - we expect a lot of confusion over resolution in games in the near future. Guess we'll have to go straight to the source for the real scoop...

Upscaling is never even close to true HD. I know sometimes we will have to give up on having full HD in favor of smoothly running visuals until technology allows us both. However, it's very wrong to say that we are not losing something.

That picture is junk. Did no one notice it? It is a Mantal Trooper and someone pasted a ShitBox logo on his back where the yellow hexagons should be. Too bad the M$ fanboys won't be able to experiance this game... until they buy a PS3. lol...

I don't care, as long as it plays good, BUT why was Free Radical saying they pushed the PS3 to it's limits making this game. Damn liars.

And yeah, why does that guy in the pic have an X-Box logo?

I actually own a copy of the game, and I have to say that I'm disappointed with the graphics in the game.

After playing CoD4, playing Haze is like pulling your eyes out.

(I am not lying about owning a copy of Haze, in my country they start to sell the games straight as it gets here, don't ask me why)

Just if somebody didn't believe me:D

But this game is nothing special in my opinion.

This is not the game that I would be dying for.

I'm not calling you a liar, but that article does not prove you have the game. It only proves that the game is out already in Iceland.
Also, i've not heard of Iceland's stores selling games prior to the release date before as you say. And i'm sure that these stores would be reprimanded by the producers for it.
Looks to me that this is similar to the blunder with Halo 3 were some people got it early due to an error at Amazon.
