PES 2016 Is Not 1080p on Xbox One After All

But no one will be able to tell the difference, says Konami.

PES 2016

A while ago, a report broke out that claimed that this year’s edition of Konami’s football franchise, PES 2016, would be 1080p on the Xbox One. It led to a lot of hopes about Metal Gear Solid 5 also hitting that resolution on the Xbox One, thanks to it using the same engine as PES, but that hope was ultimately dashed. Now, it seems like the rumor about PES itself may have been wrong to begin with as well.

On Twitter, Konami’s Adam Bhatti explained that they had ultimately lowered the resolution a little to keep performance and framerate steady. ‘We’re going to be just shy of native 1080p,’ he said, ‘but no one will be able to tell the difference.’

Which raises the question, exactly what resolution is the game even running at? The PES 2016 demo available now on Xbox One runs at in 1360 x 1080p, which is lower than the PS4 version, which runs at a full 1920 x 1080.

PES 2015 launches on Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, and PS4 on September 15. Stay tuned to GamingBolt for more coverage and information.

      Just as gold as Sony shills trying to pretend a walking simulator running at 17FPS doesn’t exist :^)

    • XbotMK1

      Wishful thinking, selective belief, and convenient omission.

    • freekface

      I see the Sony obsessed loony “XbotMK1” AKA “Derp”, “Kinect” etc. Etc. has arrived on Xbox news yet again.

      Thanks for posting the video so everyone can see the POS4 can’t run a walking sim at a stable 30FPS, John Derp. All those dives to 20FPS are hilarious :^)

      But you were trying to make it seem like it runs 17 fps all the time which is a lie. It runs above 30 fps most of the time.

    • *Also On PC

      Can only reach 40FPS and drops as low as 17FPS in a game where nothing happens.

      How absolutely pathetic.

    • freekface

      17 FPS in the bedroom, stutter everywhere Lol and all it is a camera looking around not any other movement at all and it still falls apart with mass framerate variations !!, the PS4 has a serious CPU issue. bottleneckstaion 4.

    It was at reported at 1080p for PES2016.
    Then a Sony hat to force in 1360 x1080p.
    When never wanted or asked MGS5 to be 1080p, so we don’t expect it will be.

      Why the guy form Konami would have announced such a thing just to disappoint everyone a fez days later? So, they have a partnership with Sony and in behalf of competition, I do believe that among their contract lines might have some that demand Sony console to have a visible technical advantage over other platforms. FIFA does 1080p 60fps on Xbox One since day one. Why in the world such a similar game don’t?

    • Anthony

      EA is a Microsoft loving company. Do you know who Peter Moore is?

      Xbox One is weaker. EA yearly sports titles don’t use the PS4’s stronger hardware. PES does because Konami aren’t Microsoft bttkissers.

    • Michael

      Why would they love Sony. A broke company.

    • Leonardo Muniz

      Ok, make a comparision list of the superior PES16 quality vs FIFA16 and then come back and make that affirmation.

  • freekface

    This company will never learn, now wonder their football game never sells well.

    FIFA 16 is as usual 1080p and 60FPS on Xbox One so don’t buy Pro Evolution Soccer buy the far superior FIFA.
