I actually like ReviewTech. I've been subscribed to him since E3, but his video, and info like it, is blowing up lately, so I thought I'd respond to it.

...there’s a part of it [the video] that proves beyond any reasonable doubt that ReviewTechUSA’s “reliable sources” not only aren’t that reliable, but they don’t even know the basics of game development and of how video game consoles work.

Resolution, or any aspect of the visuals of a game, has absolutely nothing to do with network or online gameplay. Even if you’re playing online, the game’s assets aren’t streamed to your console via the network, but they all reside on your disk and/or hard disk. Absolutely no part of what contributes to generate a game’s resolution or graphics is handled by the network.

If the network was “totally screwed”, like the video claims, the developers would not [reduce] theresolution, but they’d be forced to cut on the number of players, in order to reduce the amount of data passing by the network itself. Yet Battlefield 4 runs with 64 players on both consoles, so it’s obvious that both platforms’ networks don’t suffer from the problems alleged here.

Of course this shows quite clearly that ReviewTechUSA’s “sources” hold no credibility whatsoever. This concept is such an elementary part of game development, that anyone even remotely associated with the industry would know about it, and would most definitely refrain from making such an outlandish claim.

Buddy, take it for what it is, a rumor. Right now no one knows what's going.

Yeah, I think most people already figured that out, good to see some confirmation, though.

Did anyone really think it was credible?

Guy is just a blogger with an opinion - no real info.

It's not a rumour. It's lies. The whole thing falls apart upon the most cursory of examinations.

Not going to say this to add anything to the youtuber as he is definatly a satire site, BUT....

Network.Servers can affect resolution, imagine a game running at 1080p just using dedictated servers, then all of a sudden the dedi's are broken and they have to implement P2P, to run this console based code they would have to reduce the resolution of said game.
