More Reports Of Xbox One Games Running At Sub-1080p
The question that is relevant to this website and our community is this- will this controversy have a positive effect on PlayStation 4 sales?
There have been multiple reports of Xbox One games falling short of the ideal 1080p running resolution. For instance, Call of Duty: Ghosts is only an upscaled 1080p on Xbox One while it runs at a native 1080p on the PS4. Battlefield 4 apparently is sub-1080p on the Xbox One, too, which has irritated many a FPS fan.
Then there's Bungie's Destiny, which was seen operating below the optimum HD threshold while in its alpha phase (or so claimed one of the game's testers). Now, Gearnuke cites Annoyed Gamer journalist Marcus Beer, who talks about an obvious difference between the PS4 and Xbox One iterations of Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag. It seems the Xbox One version was "fuzzier and strained" while the PS4 version was "sharper" and boasted "better draw distances."
This could be good news for Sony fans, as they dealt with subpar multiplatform titles early on in the PS3 generation. Might the PS4 have the multiplatform edge this time around...?
