Bungie’s Destiny will be kicking off its beta soon for the PS3 and PS4, with the Xbox One and Xbox 360 starting on July 23rd. We already know that it will be 1080p on the PS4 but it will apparently run at the same resolution on the Xbox One. However, you shouldn’t expect the latter to run at 1080p when the beta rolls around for Xbox users.

This is according to the Destiny Blog’s report on an IGN Live show which featured Bungie community manager David Dague. Dague commented that the Xbox One version will run at 1080p once the game launches. If you’ll remember correctly, Bungie said that the recent Xbox One SDK update allowed for increased processing power following the removal of Kinect. Though the team couldn’t confirm the same previously, it now appears that this will be happening after all.

Destiny is out on September 9th worldwide for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3 and PS4.

    Ok before fanboys start trolling
    remember that this is a beta not the final product, example Far cry 4 runs at 1080p 30fps but the PS4 E3 demo ran at 900p 30fps with frame rate drops.My point is developers still have time to optimize these games for the consoles

      No, the PS4 E3 demo ran at 1080p 30 fps. Digital Foundry was looking at old footage.

      UPDATE 25/6/14 15:19: We now understand that the intro footage we looked at for these initial metrics was taken is from an older build
      using a less precise anti-aliasing technique and the sub-native
      analysis is not accurate – many apologies for the confusion. The latest
      footage seen here has more advanced AA and appears to resolve at full 1080p. This build was also used for the gameplay footage we’re analysing above.

      Ok ,
      the Battlefield Hardline Beta runs at 900p on the PS4
      so my point still stands, these betas don’t represent the finished products

      Actually many betas do represent the final product. And they need to fix the frame pacing issues in Destiny. To many next gen games seem to have this issue. And is BFH really going to be 1080p/60fps? Cuz I highly doubt it. The beta ran worst than BF4 on PS4 and it had a lower player count. And that matters for CPU performance which matters to the framerate.

      Why should ms fanboys care? I thought they dont care about res? Bet you now they’ll notice the difference between 1080p and 900p, til the next time the X1 version is only 900p, then its res dont matter all over again. And why is this system struggling so hard to achieve 1080p? Geesus! And you just sound like you are making excuses.
