Batman: Arkham Knight Aiming for identical Res/Framerate Across Xbox One and PS4

While Rocksteady Studios has not locked down a final resolution or frame rate for 2015's Batman: Arkham Knight--the "ultimate Batman simulator"--the developer now says it's aiming for graphical parity across all platforms. The reveal came as part of a recent livestream when Rocksteady Studios was asked specifically about the resolution and frame rate for PlayStation 4 version of the game.

"We don't know yet," a Rocksteady developer said. "We're about six months away from going gold. So we don't know what the resolution and the frame rate's going to be yet. That's something that happens during the optimization phase of the game. We're aiming for parity across all platforms. Whatever it is, it's going to be awesome."

I'm out of this thread before it even starts.(but i hope they take the time to make the game look good or at least run at a locked frame rate)

My optimism is telling me that means they're hoping to bring the graphical fidelity to the highest possible standard across all platforms.

But my cynicism is telling me that they'll just match the lowest denominator.

Consoles are holding each other back now.

And there's no way this will be 60fps unless it's majorly downgraded.
PC version better be a generation ahead.

I find it surprising that facing the obvious backlash Ubisoft faced that a company would actually be willing to utter the word parity

Is it normal to not know what resolution or framerate your game is going to be when it's only 6 months away from gold?

Sony is marketing this game right? Cus if so that parity better mean they are going to juice up that XB1 version.

Good. Makes me feel better about getting an Xbox One this holiday
I don't understand this line of reasoning. Wanting a more powerfl platform to be crippled or have a lesser version that you'll never play - makes you feel good?

They better damn well mean they're aiming to bring the Xone version to the level of the PS4 one, not the PS4 one down.

Sigh, it's so fucked that the second possibility is even a realistic concern. This industry sometimes, man.

Really curious if this will start to become the norm. Cheaper maybe? Anyway, I just want a solid framerate. I still haven't played the last Batman so I'm ready for another.

Nope, I am pretty sure they have a partenership with Sony and have done for the past games in the series.
Yea they showed it on-stage at E3. Considering how demanding this game will probably be, I can't see it being the same on both platforms
