Microsoft insisted on 1080p for Diablo III on the Xbox One

Blizzard told that 900p was unacceptable

Blizzard has revealed that Microsoft insisted that they get Diablo III running at 1080p on the Xbox One.

At E3 Blizzard were showing the Xbox One version of Diablo III running at 900p as they were finding 1080p challenging but were told by Microsoft that 900p was “unacceptable”.

Blizzard's John Hight stated, “We did find it challenging early on to get it to 1080p. That’s why we made the decision to drop to 900. That’s what we demoed and were showing around E3 time. And Microsoft was just like, ‘This is unacceptable. You need to figure out a way to get a better resolution.’ So we worked with them directly, they gave us a code update to let us get to full 1080p.” Microsoft insisted on 1080p for Diablo III on the Xbox One
