Incoming rumor explosion (discuss here)

Someone under the name of MSoft XBO OS Dev posted this on his blog, although I honestly take anything anonymous with a grain of salt:

"This is 100% false. Yes our OS had this problem, but months ago. I am talking E3 months ago even before the DRM. You’re right when you say we “changed the way it worked” and that did cause problems. DRM removal (your fault and a late decision upstairs due to the numbers) pushed us back even further. It wasn’t as easy as a patch, flipping a switch. It was built into the system. The online check went through more than the games. There were features that had to be redone including our sharing system and some other features we did not get to announce that we plan on adding on. Everyone is working their ass off 24/7 until launch. Yes it’s buggy but after you install the 2GB day one update, the UI will work just fine and also expect the console (if connected) to auto update when you’re offline, or in the background at night. This will happen throught the life cycle and the cloud enables us to patch In things remotely. If games were pushed back you’d hear about that. Actually XBO games have gone gold and are running fine. COD Ghost is 900p, RYSE. 900p, DR3 720p, FORZA 1080p, BF4 900p, KI 720p, ZOO TYCOON 1080p, TITANFALL running from 900-1080 (not finalized of course), Halo 1080p (they’ve been working on this for 2 years now and can fully take advantage like Turn10. ) To be truthful I can’t wait until the 22nd because when our system runs fine, you won’t be very popular in the industry. You and your friends at NeoGaf have some sort of anti Microsoft agenda that we get tired of reading. Also, Titanfall is a Microsoft exclusive. Not Xbox. Respawn can leave EA at any time and we can publish it after the first year. Enjoy."

The fact that he mentions COD is 900p is curious, which leads me to think more believable than not since if it was truly someone just pretending they would not post that as it would obviously be used as ammo against the XBO.


This actually sounds a lot more believable than the other dudes, because he gives details & numbers that aren't sugarcoated and he also points out how annoying the anti-MS neckbeard weinernet bias is/must be to employees

Is that confirmation that X1 produces lower res 3rd party games like CoD and BF4, or is that MS dev on that blog post unverified? Well, 900p is better than 720p obviously.

TitanFall running at sub-1080p makes some sense since they're targeting multiple platforms and might be stretched a bit thin.

Will isn't bf4 confirmed to be 720p on ps4 but most likely being pushed to 900p?

Didn't mort literally just in the last week (or two?) have to apologize because he posted some incorrect info as a rumor? I'm pretty sure he did... And I'm pretty sure his contacts are mainly Sony side. I wouldn't really hold my breath for real Xbox info from him, even if he has caught wind of things once or twice in the past. And it's kind of weird that Sony fans (not mentioning anyone specifically) cling to GAF "insiders" so desperately when they have pretty terrible records. Not Pachter bad, but pretty damn bad.


You're so pretty.

2GB day one patch?

Didn't Wii U have something very close to this, as well?

I picked up on that too and was wondering the same thing, sounds like maybe the more difficult programming on XB1 may be the culprit for it's version running slightly lower res than PS4. Other thing I'm wondering is if this confirms BF4 will be at 900P on both XB1 and PS4? Don't remember if PS4 version of BF4 was confirmed 1080P native or not, last I remember hearing was that it was above 720P.
#50Ramsus082Posted 10/27/2013 8:26:22 PM
I don't know if its good news that this rumour implies X1 can run BF4 at a higher res than 720p, or bad news because it gives credence to the rumour that we're in for more 900p 3rd party games on the X1.
