'We just shipped, it's a long generation.'

It’s no secret that some of the major AAA multiplatform games have struggled to run in full HD [1080p] or better frame rates [60fps] on the Xbox One. Titles like Call of Duty Ghosts and Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag have better resolution on the PS4. Even Tomb Raider is confirmed to run at 60 fps on the PlayStation 4 whereas the Xbox One is rumored to be running at 30 fps.

In a lengthy podcast with GamerTagRadio, lead planner for Xbox One, Xbox 360 and Kinect, Albert Penello has come out in the defense of the Xbox One’s capability to run multiplatform games at better resolution and frame rates.

He thinks despite all the resolution and frame rate debates, Xbox One has the best looking game on any platform: Ryse: Son of Rome.

“Look, I had a lot of time to think about this and I believe in what I said. I believe that the differences between the boxes [PS4 and Xbox One] is not all that great and I know what is going behind the scenes and I have access to more information about some of this thing than a lot of people. Sometimes people tend to neglect the points that are in my favor and they like to highlight the points that tell me I am wrong. I still think Ryse is still the best looking game on any platform. Period. End of story,” he said.

He also believes that this is just the beginning of the generation and all Xbox One owners will have an ‘awesome’ generation of games ahead.

“I think if you look at the title which we launch, which were multiplatform titles, The bulk of them were the same. I think there were 12 titles released on both platforms [PS4 and Xbox One], leaving three all of them had the same performance on both boxes. Everybody wants to focus on frame rate, there is the Tomb Raider, there is a resolution thing going on and OK, there could be a lot of reasons why that could be true but we are just a [few] weeks in, we just shipped, it’s a long generation. People who bought an Xbox One are going to be in for an awesome generation of games that are only going to get better. I think these little things get way overblown versus like the quality of the games and the real differences in experiences which are pretty minor,” he said.

Both Microsoft and Sony have tons of exclusives for the PS4 and Xbox One in 2014.  How many of them will run at full HD at 60fps is something that remains to be seen. Do you agree with Albert Penello’s notion that it’s the games that matter? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
