The Division Closed Beta Runs at 1080p Resolution on Xbox One – Initial Report

The Division

Update: The game runs at a dynamic resolution on the Xbox One

Original Story:

Like many others, GamingBolt had its time with the closed beta for Tom Clancy’s The Division on the Xbox One. Much to our surprise, our initial findings suggests that The Division is running at 1080p resolution on the Xbox One. Rumours pegged it as running at a sub-HD resolution like many other third party titles in the past but it seems Ubisoft Massive has pulled off some magic.

Pixel counting wasn’t easy on The Division as it uses a lot of post processing effects (much like Need for Speed) to remove steps from the edges. Fortunately we found some crisper steps which allowed us to count the pixels and ascertain the resolution, which basic maths indicates to be 1080p. However, we will investigate further and follow up with a full report tomorrow, including a head to head analysis versus the PS4 and PC versions. So consider this as an initial report which may change based on further findings.

Even if Ubisoft Massive managed a 1080p resolution, there are still a few other pertinent issues like frame rate drops, issues with the level of detail, and NPCs loading in quite late at times. We’ll cover these in more detail along tomorrow so stay tuned for more information.

Tom Clancy’s The Division is out on March 8th for Xbox One, PS4 and PC. What are your thoughts on the beta thus far especially when compared what was initially showcased at past E3 events? Let us know in the comments below.

  • Tga215

    Doubt it 900p trust me final resolution

    • DA-ROOSTER

      You do know that 90% of current-gen Ubisoft games run at a 900p resolution on the PS4 you do know that right

    • Tga215

      Yes I do but I wasn’t trying to be smart just stating the obvious I’m still getting it for the Xbox one…

    • Guest

      It’s obvious when all evidence, including an “official” pixel count, points to the contrary?

    • andy

      Haha can you tell us how you came to that conclusion please? Watch Dogs, AC Unity and AC Syndicate are only what comes to mind at 900p.
      You brought it up. Ubisoft Titles, here I go………

      AC Black Flag, AC Freedom Cry, AC Chronicles, Child of Light, Far Cry 4, Far Cry Primal, Grow Home, Just Dance 2014 2015 2016, Rayman Legends, Rocksmith, Tetris Ultimate (lol), Rainbow Six Siege, Toy Soldiers War Chest, The Crew, Trials Fusion, Valiant Hearts……………. all at full 1080p on PS4 (but not all on another current gen console, guess which one)

      You do know that everything that comes out of your mouth is total crap you do know that right? 90%? Do you want to go back to primary school there mate? Feel free to take out smaller released titles from that list, you still aren’t going to come up with anything close to 90% dunce.

    • Chaaka Boom

      So sad native resolution is meaningless with these console upscalers. Battlefront is sub 1080p on both consoles and the best looking game to date. There goes your precious sheep argument. Let me know when your pos4 can match the best racer in gaming (metacriric) at 1080p locked (never to drop a frame) 60fps. Driveclub is embarassing as are the rest of the multiplat turds.

    • Mirimon

      Hm… driveclub, the game played by more people than FH2 or forza 6…..

      If it was all that great more people would be playing that niche, simple title, but they aren’t.

    • Chaaka Boom

      Please post your link for the people playing both games as of last night….u pathetic sheep. U want a laugh…go look at the metacriric scores for both moron.

    • Mirimon

      Lol, metacritic means nothing when MORE PEOPLE HGIT DRIVECLIUB THAN FH2…

      Who is actually playing what (votes by wallet)>User reviews> “professional reviews”

      Go take your lost fanboy cause elsewhere.

    • ShowanW

      not technically true… it’s just that PS4 doesnt have a ton of choice when it comes to “good” racing games. So it’s either DC or Need for Speed…

      So of course people are going to buy Drive Club, because most were hoping that it fill the gap until GT comes out.

      I don’t like racing games like that, but DC doesn’t compare to Forza 6 or FH2.

    • Mirimon

      Er… because the xb1 has a swath of such choices right? With 4 times less titles it somehow has more of a nich genre to choose from than the ps4 library? Srsly, your logic does not pan out here.

    • Mirimon

      Lol, also…. knack got terrible metacritic reviews, and yet, more people bought it than they did 86% of the xb1 library. More people paid for Knack than downloaded Killer instinct for free…..

    • Chaaka Boom

      Still waiting on that link. More people playing pathetic games on pos4 means 1 thing sheepcum….pos4 has no games worth your stinky sheepcrap.

    • Mirimon

      Why link? You’re just going to ignore it, move goal posts, chamge the topic and then cry about something else while making up more fantasies because that is what you fanboys do.

      If you really care, just look for it yourself, see : sales of said titles.

      Have fun kid.

    • Chaaka Boom

      Post link sheepcum….STFU and go play knack and wait for robot golf and uncharted at 900p. Remember to say baaaaah when paying $15 to play ps2 relics with black bars across half the screen. Mirimon the moron sheep…hilarious

    • Truth™

      Proof that PS4 has no games that PS4 owners will literally buy turds

      Greatness is here, on PC

    • Mirimon

      Hardly proof of such, with nearly 500 playable titles in just 2 years… more than enough to play and alone fills a backlog, add that to my pc back log and man…. but you wouldn’t know anything about that because you aren’t a real gamer, your just some poor shallow kid who has issues dealing with his lack of self-esteem.

    • Truth™

      PC owners know owning a trash station poor is pointless and running inferior multiplats. Once again the console peasant screams about “Muh real gamer” while trying to justify his brick with no games.

      Stay exposed, Sonyscum.

    • Mirimon

      Thank you for proving ny point, and you really shouod seek counseling.

    • Truth™

      You should seek a refund on the POS4 🙂

    • Mirimon

      Why would I do that? If I really wanted a refund for a failure to provide services paid for, I would emplore all taxes for everybody that went toward your education be immediately returned, as they clearly did not go toward said education.

    • Scott Strunk

      You are 110% wrong!! I actually work in the IT field and have access to all the software I need to run the appropriate speeds and pixel counts. This is only a few games that run at “native” 1080p and they aren’t on The ONE or PS4.

    • Truth™

      INFAMOUS.

      HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAH

    • andy

      But seriously whenever you actually want to give a good argument, I will listen and agree. But please stop with “but… but… but… but…… I have nothing of merit to contribute to why I disagree with this” arguments.

    • Jimmy Jangle

      Why? If they can have it at a mostly-stable 1080p in a beta, they surely would be able to keep it that way while making general improvements in time for release.

    • Tga215

      Guess we will find out in March

    • theduckofdeath

      Dropping res is a good way to take some of the pressure off when a game in development isn’t performing. Sometimes, it is for the best. Being 1080 @30 or 60 fps doesn’t tell the whole story. Devs toss out more tech than Matt Damon in the Martian just to get there.

      I didn’t get a chance to run the beta before work. The alpha, though, had serious frame rate drops and choppy sequences. The visuals were detailed overall (a lot of objects scattered around), but nothing like the original E3 build. Getting a good look at the enemies was also tough. They and the environment were generally kind of…blurry. I don’t know quite how to explain it.

      Let’s hope they can get the frame rate smooth and with few hitches. Putting out the demo at 1080p shows a bit of confidence in themselves to get things ironed out in the next couple of weeks.

    • nick

      doubtful, your going to see both consoles run at 1080 with 30 frame rates now that companies had time to work with them. New engines as well can help a ton.

    • Tga215

      Maybe on the ps4 Xbox I don’t see it happening

    • Dumlen Karlsson

      ps4 480p.

    • Scott Strunk

      After numerous tests I have done running the same games on PS4 and The ONE. Trust me… There are more games on The One that run between 900p & 1080p than PS4. PS4 is still heavily relying on upscaling. So you can believe everything Sony and Gaming Sites feed you, or you can just DL the FREE software on your PC and do the test yourself. There is a reason Sony doesn’t advertise 1080p anymore. It’s because they got caught lying about it so much when the system dropped, they just shut-up about it now. Whatever… Play what you want to play.

    • legacy

      Can i have what you is smoking

    • Rodney Patrick

      Stfu you dumb@ss idiot

    • Tga215

      Your mad cause I’m telling the truth??

    • the truth is thats its 1080p deal with it scrub

    • Tga215

      We shall see March 8 I’ll send you a reminder

    • okay but why would that downscale it? hows that even logical?

  • dametreas foster

    Here comes the hate.

  • DA-ROOSTER

    Why is it when a game runs at 1080p on the Xbox One people say it’s magic? The Xbox One is totally capable to run games at 1080p games like Forza 6 ,Destiny and Gears Of War Remake is proof of this

    • Rodney Patrick

      Exactly,it’s websites like this and the dumb@ss idiotic sonyfangirls that think the Xbox one can’t

    • Chaaka Boom

      What cant is the ps4…1080p locked at 60fps (never drops). Forza 6 locked 60fps perfection while driveclub struggles to maintain 25fps. Still waiting to see a current Gen ps4 game at 1080p locked 60fps. Frame rate matters…native resolution is about meaningless.

    • Rodney Patrick

      You are absolutely right

    • legacy

      Driveclub the same game that have two years of dlc the game that’s been supported for this long and looks unbelievable till this day, and try the last of us, the drake collection and numerous others for your lock frames

    • Chaaka Boom

      Driveclub the same game that you cant even change tire compound much less paint your own car designs. The same game that has 0 real race tracks and a twentieth of the cars as forza. Current Gen means current Gen…remasters means remasters.

    • legacy

      Yeah only a person that didn’t play it will say that, and it’s amazing that driveclub is still being supported xbox1 is on forza 6 going on 7 driveclub came out with forza 5 and driveclub graphics are still better

    • Chaaka Boom

      Its graphics blow,the gameplay blows and the entire game blows. People playing this on ps4 shows how pitiful their exclusives are. Have a look at driveclub and forza 6 metacriric scores.

    • How does one game represent PS4s exclusives? Not saying Driveclub is bad but this games support or performance does NOT represent PS4’s mass of exclusives
      That’s like saying The master chief collection can be said for all X1 exclusives.

    • deadcellular

      Xis, you’re right. Master Chief Collection is hardly representative of the Xbox One exclusives.

      I think you could sum it up more accurately by saying Xbox One’s exclusives are as follows: Halo and Forza.

    • Yea but a Gran Turismo game has not dropped that cmon compare champions to champions if your going to make the comparison.

    • Chaaka Boom

      Last GT was far from a champion. I take my bets on the forza serious remaining the best in gaming..Horizon 3 will be spectacular.

    • I’m not saying that I’m just saying it ran 1080p and 60FP as matter of fact MOST racing games do whilst stay gorgeous. If Forza is your cup of tea than that’s that I’m just saying GTs sell well are great simulators and still have their following and are without a doubt system seller and performs VERY well as what it does not saying it’s better than Forza in any way but for the topic that is in debate it is on par with what you said and both have stood the test of time and performance not Driveclub since it’s a junior franchise and never thought it should be compared to the caliber of Forza I wouldn’t disrespect the franchise like that. Driveclub isn’t a bad game by no means but it not in that league.

    • Chaaka Boom

      Agree…however only forza runs at a completely locked 60fps. All others drop frames.

    • Truth™

      LMAO Console garbage racers

    • that looks so horrible lol

    • Mr Xrat

      That jaggyfest pile of turd with the PS2 textures? Really? I know Xgimps are desperate but WOW!

    • Truth™

      You talking about Drivecuck again, ratboy?

    • David Herrera

      PC Master Race 1440p

    • I best thing about “master race” is it’s going to have the lowest population of the three.

    • Joe Cimmarrusti

      Personally,
      I have not used my PC this much for gaming since the year 2000. I always preferred consoles for their ability to play via splitscreen, system link, etc. However, this generation, the PS4 and Xbox One have been treated mostly as Low End PC’s and not using their console advantages…because of this, I have used my PC more than ever. Also, the CPU in both consoles make an Intel i3 look like a beast…very disappointing. So, my consoles mostly sit…

    • Truth™

      And no shills like you

    • Mr Xrat

      Should have picked games that actually challenge the hardware, Xgimp. Maybe an annual FIFA game. LOL!

    • Truth™

      Like The Witness which runs 900P on the 8GB GDDR5 “Supercharged” PC and 1080P on real machines?

    • Truth™

      Why is The Witness 900P on PS4, ratboy?

    • the same 15 people liked your other post god damn you have no life

    • andy

      It sure is but you have to agree that there is nothing incredibly next gen looking that runs at 1080p on Xbone. Its always cross gen games or (still rarely) a last gen game like Unreal 3 games or indie games that run at 1080p.
      Even 3 of those games you listed fall into this category. Forza 6 most certainly as it doesn’t even have day to night cycles and real time weather effects, just the same static environments like previous gen titles.
      We still haven’t seen any games on Xbone that come close to, for an example, the graphical fidelity of 2 year old Infamous Second Son let alone ALSO running at full 1080p.
      That is why people say it is magic. Lol even Gamingbone agree with how shocking this is (even though their next article will probably be about how Vib Ribbon is coming to Xbone and how it impressively runs at 1080p lol or a similar looking game anyway).
      This also explains why the Devision looks so bland an unimpressive.

    • You sir are crazy as a goat…..I’m playing right now and you call it bland and unimpressive hhahahaahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha Go hate somewhere else or appreciate your better looking games that run on a mice scaled map with less features but you’re the definition of LOL

    • marc Berry

      Let’s see, Ryse looked good, how about FMS6 and what about FH2? We can’t forget Quantum break. Oh well. None of the games you listed are in the same class as these.

    • andy

      I have something here and answer honestly. This is a 1080p game on Xbone that is a cross gen title on 360 also. Its even a fresh off the boat article from yesterday.
      http://ie.ign.com/videos/2016/01/27/rise-of-the-tomb-raider-graphics-comparison-xbox-one-vs-xbox-360-vs-pc
      Can you honestly tell me that there is a CONSOLE GENERATION of difference between that 360 and Xbone footage? Hence, that is why THIS game, in particular, can pull off 1080p on Xbone.

    • Scott Strunk

      Wait… Wait… LOL!! I am sorry, but if you’re going to say that there is next to no leap from 360 to The ONE, than you need to be checked. The best looking game on the PS4 is The Last Of Us, which was also the BEST looking game on PS3 with next to ZERO improvement. Am I insulting the game?? Absolutely NOT! But you are clearly a Troll and a Hater, with next to no evidence what soever to your claims. To me… Honestly?? You sound like a PS4 Fanboy that is regretting dumping $300 on a system that has only a handful of decent games, and most of them are Indie/Arcade games. I own a Wii-U, The ONE and RemasterStation 4, and that’s all the PS4 is good for (right now) is remastered editions of games. Again, because I did stray a bit off course, there is almost no difference between both systems, but definitely enough of a difference to warrant picking up the preferred platform.People like you drive me nuts when you spill such stupid ignorant babel.

    • Joe Cimmarrusti

      Honestly, it appears that both consoles are remaster systems for previous generation games. Actually, one can’t compare the Halo Master Chief Edition to Halo 5…the lack of split-screen and still no firefight has been disappointing…perhaps they should remaster Halo Reach, for this is the best title of the series! Now regarding my PS4, it has been used mostly for Indie games and some of them are excellent; however, they are nothing that couldn’t run on a PS3 or 360 really. Regarding the best Xbox One title, personally I have found Frontier in Titanfall to be fantastic…a fun game with tons of action even though it’s not 1080p.

    • ShinjiOda

      Unless you are just looking at NES or the Genesis then all consoles are remaster systems(what an extremely stupid claim) for previous consoles. There are still few re-releases 2 years into these systems than PS3/360. Back away from the microscope and look up some facts.

    • Joe Cimmarrusti

      Actually, if you are looking that far back, even the Genesis has re-releases and revamped, modified versions of previous released games. I personally am not against re-released titles at all, it’s metaphorically a way of giving a cracker to a kid, because dinner is not ready yet. The development time for new AAA games is simply so massive and it takes a while to efficiently use new hardware, thus remastered versions arrive first…also, there are past gems that fans, such as I would like to play again, but now with a fresh coat of paint.

    • Akile Joseph

      But TLOUR runs Twice the FPS and with higher-res textures, Tomb Raider runs 30fps on both :v

    • ShinjiOda

      You haven’t even played The Division as of yet. You don’t know how the texture compare. TLOUR’s textures are just better than the original game but that doesn’t compare to The Divisions textures, physics, lighting, or AI…all things that affect how a game runs.

    • Weezy Got that Sack

      Tomb Raider actually runs at 60 fps on PS4 and 30 fps on Xbox.

    • Joe Cimmarrusti

      Did you know that when EA sports first released titles on the PS3 that they were actual 60fps on the 360 and 30fps on the PS3…do you think that the PS3 hardware was inferior, or that programmers were just not familiar enough to use the hardware to its capabilities? Seriously.

    • bxwhiterabbit

      Well said scott.

    • Bilal Prince-Ali

      the best looking game on PS4 is ‘The Order’ but it was nice of you to try :).. plus, like @akile_joseph:disqus said.. TLOUR plays at 60FPS has hi-res textures and an online component… soooo…? not really the best example you could have given..?

    • Doggystyle

      The Xbox One couldn’t even run The Last of Us.

    • Joe Cimmarrusti

      Seriously? That’s as ridiculous as saying that the PS4 couldn’t run Halo 4…both “The Last of Us” and “Halo 4” are the few titles that natively run actual 720p in all their glory…finally using techniques and last generation’s hardware to their true potential.

      Sheepboy….your pos4 blows. Its exclusives are embarrassing. The odor, driveclub at 22fps, an interactive movie and a single player hacknslasher that runs at 13fps in its gimmick coop mode. Its an overhyped indiebox that mindless sheep buy.

    • kevin

      It’s alright to prefer a system more then another but don’t be a fanboy about it and make up crap.

    • Scott Strunk

      Exactly Kevin. I have friends that will ONLY play PS4 and I have ones that will ONLY play The ONE. We hardly ever break each others balls. But to come into a forum and start speaking with such a naive and ignorant tone, it’s uncalled for and considered TROLLING for good reason.

    • Joe Cimmarrusti

      As soon as prices hit the “sweet spot” and an exclusive appears that is a “must play” we’ll probably find people with both consoles…many gamer’s from last generation had both PS3s and Xbox 360s. Also, are people actually gamers or simply fanboys here? Gamers really don’t care what console that game is on as long as it’s fun…fanboys are simply those who are suckered into buying whatever the corporate giants release and advertising freely for them. Personally, I wish they would simply combine the PS4 hardware, put this into the Xbox One’s larger case(more heat dissipation) with an Xbox One controller.

    • the order 1886 seconds

    • Joe Cimmarrusti

      Regarding Indie Titles…the only refreshing things really released this generation so far on both consoles are Indie Titles…it’s sad, but I end up playing these more than the mediocre AAA titles…you are right though that between the two, the PS4 has more Indie development. Also, it’s also amazing that both next gen indie titles would work just as nicely on an Xbox 360 or PS3.

    • Joe Cimmarrusti

      I find it amusing how everyone is still talking about 1080p as the most important thing…also regarding Second Son…it was played for 2 hours on April 2014 by myself…superficially does it look good? Yes it does, but you can’t even see a pixel splash when walking through a puddle, one simply hovers…what was with that? Even pixelated PS1 games could show a splash. So far, this generation has been disappointing from both camps.

    • ShinjiOda

      Because of a splash. Right.
      Keep picking them nits, kiddo.

    • Joe Cimmarrusti

      Kiddo? I thank you for the compliment, but I am probably older then yourself, for my first console was purchased in 1982 called the Atari when I was in grade 8. My current classroom is a historical museum of retro consoles and games and I even have the privilege to teach an intro game design course to middle school students. If the best part of a game is simply pretty graphics, it’s may as well be called a picture … a game with proper interactions with its world, such as colliding with water, is a thoughtfully developed game…especially in a game that boasts to be a real world sandbox. Second Son was one of the first exclusives released on the PS4; however, for the most part, games like this have been disappointing. Both consoles are low end PC gaming rigs in spec; however, like all the consoles from the past, the PS4 and Xbox One have a massive advantage over all PC’s…their proprietary hardware. This permits developers to use every clock cycle and kb of ram to their fullest. I am still waiting for this to happen…perhaps in their last year of development?

    • Paul

      I know what you mean, it’s not magic at all, but realistically, the PS4 should be a bit better than the Xbox One on pretty much every game given the hardware and the PC should be way better than the PS4, I think the sad truth is that the PS4 is getting what us PC gamers get, being held back by weaker hardware.

      This gen of consoles should of been 1080p 60fps as standard, it’s really a disappointment that it’s not considering the PC been doing it for years.

  • Chaaka Boom

    Who the F cares….battlefront is sub 1080p on both consoles and its the best looking game to date. The entire topic is meaningless with the upscalers these consoles have.

  • DA-ROOSTER

    You guys do know this is a Beta you do know that right? Since when does a beta go through the same scrutiny as a finished game

    • Mirimon

      Because pre release open beta these days is generally an advertisement campaign. At this point almost nothing changes, what little changes there may be are generally small values such as a particular weapon’s damage or some such.

    • ShinjiOda

      Yes, demos are meant to advertise and promote the game. It’s not “these days” it’s how it’s always been for decades. By the time there’s an open demo, for any game, nothing major will change.

    • Mirimon

      BETA, not demo. There was a time, and a few still do this, that a beta had a purpose that was not advertisement centric.

      Demo is not the same as a beta…

  • DA-ROOSTER

    Question
    Do you guys think The Division will dethrone Destiny in the console MMO department?

    • Chaaka Boom

      It will for me…Destiny got traded in a week after release. Game was a repetitive bore.

    • Sam Woods

      The whole point of that game is to grind it, in order to get better games. I got it, got to lvl 20 and didnt really play again til they sorted out light fragment things so its easier to rank up again now

    • Mr Xrat

      Nope. The only people who think otherwise are Xgimps clinging to the game because of the marketing deal and because they have nothing else to play.

    • FreeRyu

      If it was the other way around I assume you would have a different opinion.

    • Truth™

      Ratboy what happened to your hotly tipped PS4 exclusive, “New Rocket League” Hardware Rivals?

    • theduckofdeath

      It doesn’t have the same hype. Destiny was the first big thing from Bungie since Halo, and benefited from being the first major (seemingly) next gen new IP.

      My clanmates haven’t shown much interest in The Division. Many are still playing Destiny as a matter of routine, which, God bless them, I couldn’t keep up.

  • Mr Xrat

    Not surprising considering how much the game’s been butchered since reveal.

    Just as well Xgimps have that 24 hour exclusivity in the beta, it’s the last time anyone’s gonna care about this game. 🙂

  • Fersnake

    there you go hence why you got the downgrade.

    • theduckofdeath

      Neither XB1 or PS4 could have come close to that E3 2013 demo. People trying to play new games on weak PC’s are also deadweight. The baseline hardware specs have to be raised or this will continue.

      The PC version won’t walk away unscathed, either.

    • ShinjiOda

      Sorry but the real world can’t just wipe out or ignore middle tier hardware. ALL commercial-grade software has to be optimized to run on hardware of varying strength and not just the tiny percent with topend gear. This won’t stop, ever.

  • jacksjus

    I have a feeling this game will dull out fast. Now I could be wrong but so far the variety in enemies is severely lacking.

    • Chaaka Boom

      You serious.. You in the beta ?
      Not too good ?

    • jacksjus

      I’m not understanding what you are saying, but no I am not in the beta. My comments are based off the 2 hour streams that were shown a few weeks ago.

    • Chaaka Boom

      Roger…thx

    • NIGHTMARE3422

      Lol its a freaking beta there will be more enemies obviously. What did you expect them to unlock the full game for 3 days?

    • starscream1180

      the beta isnt very good … the full game isnt going to be magically much better , you have played other betas right ?

    • jacksjus

      The beta is an advertisement and it should be used to convince people to buy the full game. If the beta leads to boredom then why would someone buy the full game?

      That’s a poor excuse. Again Insaid I could be wrong, but from what I have seen it just wave after wave of the same foot soldiers.

    • Jimmy Jangle

      “The beta is an advertisement”.

      Hahahaha no it isn’t, that’d be a demo. Christ Alive….

    • starscream1180

      the game got boring after 2 hours.

      its does nothing different , the dark zone is the only new element and most people i played with didnt like it … i enjoyed robbing peoples loot tho.

    • John Lawson

      seriously? I spend 2 hours alone playing with the detailed world, it’s very impressive

  • angel

    How about you write a story about gameplay and how you enjoy or dislike the gameplay. Why is this a story?

    • Evil_Annie_2015

      It is a story, because according to ps4 fanboy writers 1080p is reseved for the ps4 even when the frame rate suffers badly…like in Bloodborne. 🙂

      But your observation is correct, and unfortunately it is what this generation will be all about due to the gaming media focusing on the “Resolution above anything else”.

    • Doggystyle

      “Xbox One being a piece of electronic doo-doo”.

    • Evil_Annie_2015

      “Xbox One being a piece of electronic doo-doo”

      What else can a ps4 troll add? 🙂

    • Truth™

      But you spend your life defending the other piece of electronic doo-doo that is the PS4

      Why isn’t The Witness 1080P. Wasn’t it supposed to be on PSVR?

      Don’t answer that. Everyone knows PS4 is garbage 🙂

    • GigaGaia

      The witness runs at 1080p/60fps on PS4. Go back to the inferior pile of garbage you call the Xbox One and stop trolling people with false claims and fake screenshots.

    • Truth™

      The Witness runs 900P on PS4 and has no VR support
      The Witness runs 1080P and higher on PC and has VR Support.

      Keep dancing 🙂

    • ShinjiOda

      It’s the same “story” you’ll get from Digital Foundry. They are just reporting some of the stats and comparing them. Not sure why that has to piss you off to the point of needing to act like there’s a conspiracy against your precious Xbox.

    • Evil_Annie_2015

      What SAME story? I thought that “all” multiplats ran at 900p om xbox one. So, now 1080p is a defect in games?

      Over analyzing a beta is ok, but the purpose of an article is to inform on game performance in an overall context. If you read the article (i gather from your comment that you only read the title) the writer is so lazy to even pretend to be unbiased. He is pretty much saying “well, the game runs at 1080p, and I hate that so lets hope that we can see issues, lets hope”. And you hope that as well since your precious ps4 power cannot be match by the weak xbox one….lol

    • ShinjiOda

      The article, the first person you replied to, and I have not called 1080p on XboxOne a defect. 1080p IS the resolution of The Division on XboxOne. 1080p IS NOT reason for you to whine about PS4. After resolution then there’s the question of performance and bugs, probably neither will be wholly unique to XboxOne but the writer didn’t ignore that even though you want to.

      Your issue with the writer’s bias is fictional and imagined.

    • Evil_Annie_2015

      My issue with this particular article is more accurate than those who think it offered enough information about the division.

      What things we want to know about a game from paid writers? What about how beautiful or ugly the game looks, Gameplay (frame rate included), and the story. You can put them in any order you desire, but those are the core attributes that can play an important factor on whether we buy a game or not. Now, what valuable information did you learn from this article about any of that? He was very vague about the “pertinent” issues that he even sounded as if he was shocked and disappointed that the XB1’s version was 1080p..:)

      Speaking of whinners, it seems to me that the only whiners are those who hate to see multiplats have 1080p parity, and your reply reinforces that.

  • Mirimon

    The xb1 versions uses variable “dynamic resolution” from 678p to as high as 1080p, while its frame rate will go from 18 fps to zero fps respectively, with tearing, reduced effects etc.

    Destiny: New York was not ready for open beta yet.

    • lol no this game looks great you sony pont

    • Mirimon

      Aw…. look at the angry little fanboy…

      How droll

    • pointing out facts, doesn’t make me a fanboy, lol moron

    • Mirimon

      When did you point out facts? All you did was jump in and throw a tantrum, and look like a fool while making a poor attempt to insult somebody.

      Your crying here is only making it worse.

    • fact this game looks good on xbox one
      another fact im not crying lol again your a moron

    • Mirimon

      Ah, there it is, back to crying….

    • you are obviously a moron, going to stop replying to you, bye

    • Mirimon

      Hm, name calling, crying, back to name calling….

      Is that all you can do?

    • you have the same people who liked your comment and in the same order, as that Mr Xrat guy, how many stock accounts do you have?

    • Mirimon

      Awww… now you want to change the subject… you should just go back to crying.

  • A Sinful Wrath

    I’ve been playing the Beta since this morning and find it absolutely incredible. The level of detail as well along with the various types of game play have me totally enthralled. I wasn’t expecting much from this game but it had totally surpassed all my anxieties that I had from prior Ubisoft releases… they dun good on this

  • Bill E Weaver

    once dx12 is implemented ALOT of games will be 1080p. majority of the games i own are 1080p on xb1 anyhow, so why the media pins the xb1 as weak is mind blowing…not all devs have dx12 toolsets yet to take advantage of how the x1 is configured.

    • Mr Xrat

      Wasn’t that supposed to have happened last year, rat?

      Time to accept DX12 isn’t bailing out the Xbone. 🙂

    • Bill E Weaver

      there already a list of games at 1080p on XB1, just google it

  • XbotMK1

    Just because the game runs 1080p on Xbox One doesn’t mean they worked magic. It just means they either lowered the quality of other aspects of the game accross all versions for parity just to get the weaker Xbox One up to 1080p, which has been a trend with Ubishit’s games.

    • Truth™

      Nah m8. The P*ss weak 4 is just sh*t as well 🙂

      The Witness is 900P and Sonycucks expected it to run in VR at 1080P. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

    • have you seen the gameplay on the xbox one or are you retarded?

  • Joe Cimmarrusti

    Honestly,
    I find it funny how this generation is more about 1080p then smoothness or even fun factor. In 2001 a company called Microsoft released a game system called the Xbox that was not 30 percent, but over 2 times more powerful than another system called the PS2. Nearly every xbox game ran at 480p, some even at 720p natively, while the PS2 barely left 480i…there were even graphic effects on the Xbox, that were not possible on the PS2 emotion engine chipset. Games were also always more fluid and smoother on the Xbox than the PS2, but the PS2 ended up selling 6 times more consoles than the Xbox. Sony at that time even stated, at that time, that resolution and graphics are not the most important. If I really was interested in resolution I would avoid both consoles, for high resolution usually sacrifices solid frame-rates…actually, I would simply play everything on my PC. What consumers should be more aware of is things like local network play, and split-screen…you know the things that separated consoles from PC’s in the first place for the past 20+ years. I have actually never been so nauseated regarding game features that have been dropped simply to sell more copies of a title. I have all 3 new consoles…in fact I have 2 Xbox One’s just so that more than one friend may play Titanfall when they visit.
    cheers,
    SEADRIVE

  • Xbox one 2econd gpu unlocking

    This is only DX12.
    Be very Salty PS4 tears.
    We haven’t even yet agreed for our second GPU layer been used under DX12.1 either.
    We have another 1.3TF to be professionally unlocked when we agreed on the NDA expiring.

    +12 and we game on.

  • starscream1180

    i wouldnt worry about the resolution …maybe i dont know the actual game being kinda dull.

  • Victor Lavon Richardson

    Played the beta for a few hours.
    At first things went well and I loved the game but now I think it’s boring and generic.
    Think of what The Crew was like at launch. Average at best. Best wait until the expansions come out and add more variety (hopefully)
