Holding Back

#1SearchmanV16Posted 9/30/2013 7:28:11 AM
I think the Xbox One is really going to hold back gaming right now. Look at the multiplatform titles? 720p and 60 FPS is the standard for BF4 and Watchdogs. Which is fine, but it doesn't allow the PS4's full graphical potential to be used at this point in time. The game that takes advantage of the PS4's capabilities is Killzone Shadowfall. I mean look at Ryse being put into 900p just to make it work better? Why does EA have to limit it, what if the 500k copies they sell at launch on the Xbox becomes 250k and then other half go to the PS4 to get 750k copies? That's still the same amount of profit for EA, right? The PS4 will be better graphically throughout the entire upcoming generation.

Yeah it's gonna be just like how the Wii held back PS3/360, the PS2 held back the Xbox, and the N64 held back the PS1.

It would be if Nintendo had imposed a rule saying if the Wii version isn't as good as the 360 and PS3 versions, they wouldn't sell it on the Wii.

And a lot of people bought Wiis. Imagine the kind of **** games we would have gotten.

When did Microsoft impose that rule?

I agree, It will be total BS if the Xbone holds back the entire generation. Sony's first party Devs will expose any of the lazy Devs out there though so I have faith that the power difference between the two machines will eventually show with the Multi-plat games.

Those are the ones I found after a quick search, I'm sure there're more examples floating around. I thought this was well known.

""Titles for Xbox 360 must ship at least simultaneously with other video game platform, and must have at least feature and content parity on-disc with the other video game platform versions in all regions where the title is available," it reads.

"If these conditions are not met, Microsoft reserves the right to not allow the content to be released on Xbox 360.""
