I also think developing for all consoles (current & next ) is hurting R&D. The faster they stop developing for the 360/PS3 the more they can focus on developing strictly for the new platforms. You can't really reach the max potential when you have to port the same game down to the 360/PS3. Notice that a game like Titanfall is strictly being developed by respawn for the PC/XB1. The 360 version will be developed by a different Dev. As for a game like Ryse, I will chuck it up to developers still learning to develop for the console and the rush to get it finished for Launch.
I remember back at reveal, when guys were saying that Microsoft shouldnt be using the eSRAM. They said it would make it a pain to dev for.
Could this be the start already? Not good for MS....not good at all.
/agree given the announcements a while back how the devs at ms had upped clock speeds ect implied then they havent managed to get a stable system running.. I would hazard a guess (and this is purely my opinion) they have clocked stuff back on the launch consoles to ensure everything runs smoothly as a result games have had to scale back to ensure they can run
No but looking at Ghosts still looks like a last gen game but at least give us 1080 p and if not let us know the truth. Smooth game play always the way to go but with them pushing it back I want to get the most of of it and so should they
wow really ghosts looks like a last gen game o0 okaaaaay
dont know why you want 1080 heck with respect the majority of people couldnt tell a 720 game from a 1080 on their tv anyways unless you had a massive screen and even then with upscaling most people still wouldnt notice the difference.
thing with this rumor is basically most people are just reading it as games look better on the ps4 which isnt actually true at all.
So if they cant do 1080p 60fps now.... what happens in 2-3 years, when games really start pushing the systems?
ok lets look at it purely from cod as opposed to any other game as we are on the cod forums
cod has alot going on you have all the graphical effects , particle effects what have you ect to run something like cod at 1080 takes a massive amount of processing power in fact its basically (simplified) twice as much power as it takes to render the same thing at 720.
I think the main issue devs have atm is the apis ms have working arent really that great or able to optimize performance yet. Will we see 1080 games yes forzas running at 1080 (atm) will all games be 1080 honestly i very much doubt it i really think 720-900 will be the norm for the xb1 and i honestly dont have a problem with that . I would as i said earlier prefer an amzing looking game with all the extra stuff than one with less that has shinier water.
He also need to understand that GHOSTS is still being developed for the current gen. IW could have just put all their efforts towards the next gen only, and would have made an even better visual version of the game, but then the ppl on the current gen would pull their hair & teeth out because they can't afford to buy a next console at the moment. As for games in the future, I have hope that once the developers learn the consoles, they will learn to develop games in full HD.
