Thief developer confirms 1080p on PS4, 900p on Xbox One

thief-ps4-670

Rumors began circulating earlier this week that the resolution war between the PS4 and Xbox One would continue with Thief being better on PS4. Today, Square Enix has confirmed this to be the case.

According to the developer, Thief will run at 1080p on PS4 while the Xbox One version will be 900p. Both games will be limited to 30 fps.

Nicolas Cantin, the game’s director, was quick to dismiss the difference between the two versions, stating that you’ll need “good eyes” to notice the difference between the two. Cantin went on to say that despite the lower resolution, the Xbox One version of Thief is just as good as the PlayStation 4 version.

Thief joins the increasing list of games that run at a higher resolution on Sony’s PlayStation 4. Earlier this week, we learned that Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes outputs at a native 1080p on PS4 and 720p on Xbox One.

    For crying out loud just put the nail in the coffin of the XB1 it cant do 1080p right now this is why MS is trying to promote thier “Cloud computing”

    • https://www.imthegoddamnbatman.com Gamer Mania

      But even with the “Cloud Computing” it won’t be powerful enough to do the graphics or the processing. So overall, Xbox 720p really isn’t worth getting… at all… Unless you like a lack in good 1st Party games.

    • Jessey

      Forza 5 is native 1080p.

      • bizzy gie

        Ha! You know very well that’s not impressive for a racing game.

      • blessedswine

        thats great but to get the 1080p they had to downgrade shadows, lighting effects and the trees in the backround to lower resolution textures to make it do that, E3 version was much more crisp and better looking then the final version. edited to add a link http://www.cinemablend.com/games/Forza-5-Xbox-One-Graphics-Downgraded-From-E3-Build-60711.html

        • blzzy_gie

          So that’s the same reason why both of Sony next PS4 exclusives have been downgraded and only run at 30 FPS right?

          Infamous second son =30 FPS
          The order 1886 =30 FPS

          I like how the dev’s of “the order 1886″ put it, “We are running at 30 fps for “CINEMATIC REASONS”
          LOL.

          • blessedswine

            two things, first for adventure games 60fps isnt needed, its only needed for fast action twitch style gaming, aka FPS and Racing games. Try using apples to apples, nobody is saying anythign abotu 60fps on titles that arent cross platform, you cant compare Infamous or The Order to something like Titanfall, or Forza. as long as the framerate is steady in adventure game the framerate doesnt matter.

      • RyuNoHadouken

        racing games are the easiest, next to 2d platformers, to develop in 1080p…doesnt use that many assets…even still, they had to cut a lot out of the final build..lol

  • http://its-yuma-tsukumo.tumblr.com/ Yuma Tsukumo

    Not even surprised by this anymore. Since PS4 can do 60FPS, we should see next to no frame rate drops at all. Idk about the Xbox one though, it might be able to keep up with the frame rate thanks to the reduced resolution. I hope to see some side by side game play at some point.

    • blzzy_gie

      Wrong it is confirmed the PS4 CAN’T do 60 cps when there is a lot going on.

      Infamous second son =30 FPS
      The order 1886 =30 FPS

      Dev’s of “the order 1886″ put it, “We are running at 30 fps for “CINEMATIC REASONS”
      LOL

      • rsco6969

        30fps is bearable beats having a shit looking game at 60fps. Shame the x1 would probably struggle getting a 2d platformer running at 30 fps

  • https://www.imthegoddamnbatman.com Gamer Mania

    Oh dear… yet again the Superior version on the PS4 yet again XD
    Oh Gameonfool and bizzy_gie must be crying themselves to sleep knowing how bad the Xbox One is getting inferior versions

    • blessedswine

      nah just like all xbots they will find a excuse just like us ps3 fans did way back when. To bad the Xbone is a Jack of all trades master of none,

      • https://www.imthegoddamnbatman.com Gamer Mania

        To be honest… I didn’t make the excuse with the PS3, I really just used my PS3 for some games whilst my third party games on my 360.

        Xbox 720p is just awful.

        • blessedswine

          it is pretty bad that they cant get 1080p going and i know they will say oh look at Forza, but if you look at what they showed to what came out its totally different they had to lower all the backround image quality in that game to get it to do it. all in all i see it this way get a xbox if you want to play with winey kids and need a machine between your cable box and tv. get a ps4 to play the better version of 3rd party games and for the great games sony always seems to put out. Get a WiiU for Mario and such.

    • Gameonfool

      You phony fanboys now care about a couple more lines running across the screen

      • https://www.imthegoddamnbatman.com Gamer Mania

        You seem to care seeing how you replied ;)

        Oh you are losing your edge there buddy

        • rsco6969

          his just a poor little follower in the cult of xdoom 720p.

          • https://www.imthegoddamnbatman.com Gamer Mania

            Yeah, you’re right. The poor kid probably doesn’t know the difference between a 720p or 1080p.

            That and the fact he is still following a ship wreck of a console.

      • rsco6969

        go enjoy your Tivo clone.

      • Ahiam94

        When someone uses the term “fanboys” you know they are desperate. Go cry and play some 720p.

  • greedy_fly_x

    Earlier today there were plenty of Xbox One’s at my local Best Buy – even at my local grocery store! The Xbox 360 was my primary go-to console of the last generation (even though I also had a PS3) but I’m happy knowing I made the choice that suits me best as a gamer this generation. I’ll never touch Microsoft’s console with everything they tried to pull.

    • blzzy_gie

      I have seen that template you got it off the net, it leaves out the name of the console so that the fanboy can add it.

  • bizzy gie

    Watch_Dogs is expected to be lower resolution on Xbox One as well.

  • Yohan KillSwitch

    And here we go again lol.

    • rsco6969

      where’s my popcorn????

  • Nintendofreak

    everyone bitching about graphics and you dare to call yourself gamers…

    • rsco6969

      i AM a gamer. graphics mean alot to me but so does game play and story i mean heck im doing all the classic FF’s again and we all know how poor the graphics were. new generation of devices are made to push the techs further however in the case of Microsoft they seem content in remaining in the past gen. so yeah everyone’s talking about it because they have an inferior console which is holding gaming back and the only plus is well a couple of exclusives halo and titanfall.

      • Nintendofreak

        nothing is holding games backs a game will be the same game if its played on 720p, 1080p or above, whats holding down game quality is the people that bitch about graphics and developers started caring more about graphics than the game itself that is why ff-x3 is shit but look really good, same for so many other games in fact most games which are actually fun don’t have high end graphics, league of legends, tribes, call of duty, twisted metal, super smash, amnesia series and etc

        • steview130

          This man speaks sense!!

          • rsco6969

            The fact you claim cod is a fun games shows your not a “real” gamer.

          • steview130

            Yeah and you know all about me, grow up dipshit!!

          • rsco6969

            Weren’t on about you mutha s cunt

          • steview130

            Well directing your reply to me is a bit stupid then isnt it..dipshit!!!

          • rsco6969

            Not when I clicked reply to the twat above…. son of a slag.

          • steview130

            Mother insults??? Grow up kid!!

          • rsco6969

            Ain’t ya bored of replying yet? Must lead a sad life. Well I’m bored now so I’m gonna go get on with my life. Have fun! XD

          • steview130

            Only thing im bored of is jumped up immature little fanboys who think disrespecting someones mother makes them a “big man”. You have fun too!

          • rsco6969

            That’s it? Wow I got burnt…..

    • Ahiam94

      I really don’t care about graphics. That being said, it’s always nice having some eye candy while you play games. When it comes down to it, I’d much rather play a fun game with terrible graphics rather than a boring game with good graphics. But, if I can get a fun game with good graphics I’m gonna enjoy it to the fullest.

  • Yoshi5081

    Hell YEAH!

    • https://www.imthegoddamnbatman.com Gamer Mania

      This is just sad…. Wii U had more 1080p games than the Xdoomed 720p XD

      • Brandon

        Even though I kind of like the wii u. Its funny how they brimg the argument that the wii u has more 1080p games then the ps4. Still, xbox can play games better then wii u. Tbh.

      • blzzy_gie

        The Wii U comment I knew it would come out again..

        Any reason you don’t also mention –
        Wii U runs at 1080p 60 fps BUT the PS4 can’t when there is a lot on screen..

        Infamous second son =30 FPS
        The order 1886 =30 FPS

        The PSDOOMED etc….

        • Ahiam94

          PSdoomed? Have you seen the sales? Are you living in a fantasy world? I hate it people talk and state “facts” without doing any real research. You’re just pissed cause you payed an extra $100 on a weak console.

  • Yoshi5081
  • MonsterMash2020

    This is getting sad to be honest because the Xbox One can’t seem to get a break. I think I’m glad I decided to stay on the PlayStation this generation but the Wii U is looking interesting but the Xbox One…. they should have called it the 720… because it can’t do 1080p without reduced textures and models which is sad.

    • rsco6969

      The irony being everyone assumed the next xbox would be called 720 before the reveal. Ha

  • steview130

    Who cares, gamers this gen are all so immature, owning both consoles I find both them great fun, but fan boys gotta fan. Whatever happened to just playing games??

  • daeglyth

    I’m sort of torn on this game, I mean… why bother playing it on either next gen console? The pre-order bonuses and lack of collector’s editions make this more of a wait for it to go on sale on steam and play it on your pc sort of game.

  • Brandon J. Andrews

    I’ll play it at 1080p 60fps with more antialiasing for $15 cheaper.

  • Ahiam94

    900p? Dafuq? I’ve never heard that before. Oh well, glad I made the choice to get a PS4 over the XB1. Not like there was really ever a chance I would’ve payed an extra hundred dollars for a weaker console.

  • steview130

    Ill be getting all multiplats on Ps4 as it’s the more powerful system, my xbox will be mainly for exclusives, titanfall will be getting a lot of my time going forward. To me the x1 although its less powerful still has plenty to offer and I really enjoy it especially on online multiplayer games. But im under no illusion that the ps4 is the superior machine, its not a crime to enjoy them both for what they are!! These resolution stories are boring now!!
