Microsoft used highend PC to show Xbox one games at E3. Games will be downgraded

Games shown at the Xbox one reveal at E3 will not look as good come launch. Microsoft used high end PCs to show off the games, turns out the Xbox one couldn't handle the stress, so a lot of these games are getting downgraded to be able to run on the xbox one.

Earlier, it was reported that Ryse had faced a possible downgrade from 150k triangle count per character to 85k triangle count per character. Crytek’s CEO has confirmed this downgrade in a tweet adding that it was their own choice.


Who didn't see this coming? First M$ uses PCs to show off Xbox one games at E3. That's right, they didn't even use the damn console they are promoting. Next, games that were advertised are now getting downgraded because the console is not powerful enough. Shocking.

Where does it state in that article that the console wasn't powerful enough?

This is old news about games running on PC's it was all over the board during E3.

Crytek are obviously having issues on their end. Also on a side note, please tell me you are the user KazHairaFTW on N4G and haven't just copied their entire post to try and get some stupid fanboy fight.

Nope, not kazhairaFTW, just thought it was relevant to the topic.

Also, this doesn't seem to be an isolated case with Crytek. Seems a lot of devs are having problems with the xbox ones inferior hardware:

Why does it just not sink in that this nex gen just cant handle 1080p 60fps and high spec detail ?

Get over it, or go pc.

So one game = the power of the console.

I didnt want to add to this nonsense...but considering Forza 5 still looks as amazing today as it did at E3 and has been shown running on XB1 hardware at full 1080p 60fps shows otherwise. This issue is on Crytek's end. Not MS's
