Microsoft won't force 1080p visuals on Xbox One developers
Aaron Greenberg has stated that Microsoft will not force developers to create 1080p games for the Xbox One.
The Microsoft man has revealed that the Xbox One has the capability to support resolutions all the way up to 4K but right now they will not be enforcing 1080p HD as a standard for the new console's games.
“However,” he continued, “we’ve left the decision up to individual developers to determine what resolution best fits their own design goals. Xbox One will present all titles at 1080p either natively or upscaled by the Xbox One.”
Graphical fidelity has already become a contentious topic for the Xbox One with some developers claiming anonymously that the Xbox One's graphics driver are a “nightmare” and well behind the PS4.
More openly, Crytek has revealed that their Xbox One launch title Ryse: Son Of Rome will run in 900p to allow them to use better effects including things like shaders.
The Xbox One will arrive on November the 22nd in 13 territories including the US, Canada, UK and several other European nations.
