That's disappointing after the (promise?) of 1080p earlier. Or was that just an unconfirmed leak?

I bet the campaign is 1080p at 30fps, but the 1080p thing was never an official statement just something they were shooting for.

Not a big deal but I expected devs to use higher than 720p res. like 1366x768 or 1600x900 instead of going 1080p.

At the very least, they should use 4xaa at 720p.

kinda suspected this, since they always explicitly mentioned 60fps for nextgen, but really never said anything about resolution.
i am disappoint nonetheless.

Thought all 1080p comments were unfounded speculation, don't think anyone at EA ever said 1080p.
That they were.

Btw, those making killzone comparisons. That game does not have nearly as large a scope and nether was it running at a flat 60 at all. Only hit 60 when the player looked to the sky.

That sucks, I mean I was always planning on getting it for PC anyways but still, that sucks. Hopefully they can dig into the hardware a little more for their next outing,

Wat.

My 7770 runs BF3 on low/medium (textures high) @ 1080p 40-60fps (64p maps)


720p upscaled to 1080p is fine I guess. Depends on how it is upscaled, TV or the PS4 itself?

I wonder if other Frostbite engine games are doing this....like Need for Speed Rivals.

I don't think that DICE ever said that it was 1080p on consoles. They'd just say that it runs at 60fps. Which really told you all you needed to know about what the resolution was.

60fps is the important part, but it's a shame they couldn't pull it off with the resolution.

Oh well, not that I care so much, I'm getting the PC version anyway.

Oh, OK.

Well, if it's 720p/60 through single and multi, that's really no less technically intensive than any 1080p/30 launch games. They just prioritised framerate.

Yes, Shadow Fall is aiming for 1080p/60 in multi, but that might be an apples/oranges comparison.

What's the big fucking deal? People are too hung up on resolutions and graphics these days. Too hard to please people.

I reckon this will happen a lot with games running at 60fps, at least initially. Has COD Ghosts been confirmed to run at 1080p native? I bet it's not, because it was sub-HD this gen wasn't it?

Awesome news!
Im happy with 720P and 60FPS as long as they make the post processing effects and AA beautiful, Im k with the resolution. So, Expect the same with Xbone.
