"What happened for developers not using the Kinect is that there was a slight boost in CPU power that we got to take advantage of. This game really does push the limits when it comes to the number of enemies on screen, so it was useful for us to have more CPU juice to help with physics, navigation and AI. We’re running at 900p and 30 fps native. This is a game with a lot on the screen and we made the choice to be at 900 because we wanted to push the level of detail, action, the size of the city and the views you can experience as move around. What’s great about Sunset Overdrive is if you can see it, you can go there."
IDK if this has been posted before.
Game looks great.

I already know that we will have people come in here and complain about this, but I'm ok with this. I'm just hoping that they mean that it's 30FPS locked

Preorder cancelled! I thought they revealed this in June.

Wonder when digital preorders go up.

It's the GPU reserve that was opened up, or maybe Kinect was using some of the CPU as well? Also, 900p is OK with me if it's a Ryse quality 900p. I do wonder if this was the best decision for an open world game as things in the distance could look rough. This is still my most anticipated game of the year, though.

The game looks amazing in motion and I am happy with 30fps at 900P as long as there is no drops. That annoys me in games, Dead Rising 3 was fun but was very stutter when I played it.

Preordered although with the Xbox One price drop I may get the White bundle...

Pretty sure they said as much in June at E3. It looks wonderful.

Hope it's locked.

You are not mistaken.

As long as the framerate is smooth, I'm not going to be upset at 900p.

Yea, but I'm guessing people were hoping the boost from the Kinect removal would help push up the resolution or something.
They already addressed that question a couple months ago, and said they weren't using the extra power for resolution.

If people know anything about that, they would know that it is a redherring tactic. 10% =/ huge resolution boost or anything if you are already using all of the GPU resources.

What happened with destiny/diablo just shows how little those games were using the resources in the first place.

Yup. We've known for some time that it would not get a resolution boost. I just hope the anti-aliasing solution is a quality one and that the framerate is solid.

Ehh, I think those were more a case of ruthless optimization.

900p make sense for xbox one. i'd rather they choose that than force a resolution that would make developers compromise in other areas.

Fully expected but man...increasing the level of detail by having it at 900p? So backwards.

I'll still enjoy the game but its clear Xbox one is simply holding games back.

Don't. Give. A. Shit.

Game looks phenomenal.

Such a shame all this framerate/resolution has dominated gaming news.

This has already been said if I'm not mistaken. Either that or I can see future, which would be great.
