‘As Long As The Game Is Good, I Won’t Care About Subtle Variations In Resolution or Frame rate’: Dev

Krillbrite Studios’ Adrian Tingstad Husby believes it’s the gameplay that matters.

Krillbrite Studios’ Adrian Tingstad Husby has shared his thoughts on the on going resolution and fps debate between Sony and Microsoft’s gaming community. The PlayStation 4 has been able to render most multiplatform games at better resolution and frame rate compared to the Xbox One. But does this matter in the grand scheme of things?

We asked Adrian whether he prefers a better resolution or frame rate. “For me it’s dependent on the game, but in general I’m not an advocate for either above the other,” he said to GamingBolt. “If any one is terrible, it will of course impact your experience, but I care much more about gameplay, aesthetics, and the game itself. As long as the game is good, I won’t care about subtle variations in resolution or frame rate.”

In short, it’s all about the gameplay according to Adrian. And given that most gamers who buy their games regardless of frame rate and resolution specifications, Adrian makes a fair point.

What about yourself? Do you agree with Adrian’s point of view? Let us know in the comments section below.

    I have said this for years. If the game plays well on my chosen platform I don’t care about the resolution or frame rate. Sure, if I can get 1080p and 60fps then I’m all for it, but you can have a very pretty game and no one wants to play it because the gameplay isn’t there. Examples: Ryse (XB1), Destiny (multi-plat – shooter mechanics good everything else bad), The Order: 1886 (PS4 – they may fix gameplay issues with underpowered weapons and on and on before game releases – I hope so).

  • then he can go play Modern Warfare 1 on Wii and let me play Modern Warfare 1 on ps3!
    if he says resolution and framerate doesn’t matter:/

    What happens when Phil Spencer looks at your game and says to you “This is unacceptable. You need to figure out a way to get a better resolution”. You will surely care then lol, as Microsoft clearly does.

      No…. MS doesnt care about resolution. They care about perception and the gaming hive mind has made it so that the gaming community thinks higher resolution means better. They needed and need to reshape the power and performance conversation. People are just accepting this notion that the Ps4 is more powerful and will always perform better and the key word is “ALWAYS” not sometime perform better or sometime be the same but ALWAYS be better and even if you want to believe that the Ps4 has more “power” that statement is not rue and every time the X1 has a game that matches the resolution or frame rate it should expose how the gaming media raped Ps4 owner that bought the Ps4 for its power. This is why Phil made them kick up the resolution on Diablo III.

      Ryse is still the best looking game out, Forza 5 was the only retail next gen exclusive that was full 1080p 60fps, and Titanfall is the best performing FPS you can buy because of the dedicated servers. SO with all its power the Ps4 has provided slightly higher resolutions on some cross gen games an mostly launch titles….. Greatness, a wait.
