"There are nuances and challenges with development on each console," says Mel Kirk, Vice President of Publishing at Zen Studios.

PS4 Xbox one

Ever since the release of Xbox One’s June SDK update, more and more developers have been able to run their games at 1080p. For developers who have not been able to ramp up the resolution, they were able to add more visual effects. The SDK update has bought nothing but good news for game developers so one can be hopeful that things will further improve in the next year or so.

Ever since the launch of the first wave of new games, there has been some sort of a consensus that achieving 1080p/60fps is easier on the PlayStation 4 compared to the Xbox One. After all, several games have ran better on the PlayStation 4 but that is not the case for all the developers out there. Zen Studios who have worked on Pinball FX 2 for the Xbox One and Zen Pinball 2 for the PlayStation 4, have been able to achieve the golden standard for both of their titles.

Granted that their games are not resource intensive but its intriguing to know their opinion on the new consoles, specifically which hardware made it easier for them to achieve 1080p and 60fps.

“It was just as much work on both PS4 and Xbox One to get the desired result,” Mel Kirk, Vice President of Publishing at Zen Studios said to GamingBolt.

Mel did however acknowledged that there are nuances and challenges with each consoles but they were ready for it. “The tables feel fresh, have a new level of polish, and play better than ever before. There are nuances and challenges with development on each console, but this is our third console generation and we are pretty accustomed to these challenges,” he added.
