Mario Kart 8 confirmed for 720p

#21Motobug321Posted 5/16/2014 7:00:17 AM
I thought that was known, but that it's upscaled to 1080p. I could be wrong though.

Either way, does it really matter when the game looks as gorgeous as it does? And even then, graphics are the least important aspect of a game.

or it could just be that maybe those people really don't care about resolution. that's not deflecting from the topic at hand.


Oh they cared quite a bit when they thought it was 1080/60. Do you not rememebr all the repeat topics about why PS4 couldn't run watch dogs at 1080/60, but Wii u could run mario kart.

Well apparently Wii U can't handle all games at 1080/60 even with cartoon graphics.

It's comical how life or death some gamers are about resolution. There are tons of games that are not 1080p/60fps that still looks great, and are fun. Sure, graphics would generally look better if made for 1080p vs 720p....but does that difference really prevent you from being able to enjoy a game??? If your answer is yes, then YOU are what is wrong with gaming today.

No, no, don't you see? Now that you brought that up, power doesn't matter anymore!

apples to oranges. But they used it as an argument anyways

isn't of comparing watch dogs on ps4 to mario kart on Wii U. They should compare how watch dogs runs on both systems. But then the arguement turns to lazy developers.

serious question? why you always want to change people's preference by mocking their console preference? why you care so much if Mario kart is 720p? you are not buying it, do you? why you care X1 now doesn't have kinect? you are also not buying it, do you? why is so important that everybody should have love PS consoles/games to you? I mean even the Hirai like the WII U, those are serious questions
#30parkourboybryanPosted 5/16/2014 7:36:35 AM
I figured this would be the case. With all the games on PS4 and X1 that supposedly hit 1080 and 60fps not doing it reliably and instead averaging 40-50 FPS, I knew that with Nintendo wanting to make sure their framerate doesn't drop, there would be a strong chance it was 720p instead, that'd give them the better chance of hitting the 60fps more reliably.

And note, just because the presentation is "Cartoony", it doesn't make it any less impressive. The textures having color in them doesn't take away that they're still highly detailed, and it definitely doesn't take away from some of the high poly racetracks. No matter what anyone says, hitting this game at a constant 60fps on any system would be a technical achievement, as it's way more technically demanding than its "cartoony" style leads to be.
