Has anyone been able to tell us WHY the developers can't make games run at 1080p

Fanboyism aside, I bought my first 1080p output device in 2008, back then it was supposedly relatively new technology. So why is it that someone on a PC can just go into settings and change the resolution to 1080p, but developers cannot?


The Xbox One and PS4 are new technology from 2013, so I thought that games should be 1080p now?

I saw WatchDogs is also sub 1080p on PS4, why do the developers keep doing this?

Trash hardware. Microsoft is actually quite good at optimization, which really tells you how cheap they went this time.

That's not good enough, you can't just say that and expect me to believe you.

If they wanted the games to run at 1080p then they'd have to eliminate or scale back other features in the game in order to free up the power needed to increase the resolution. It's generally a better idea to cut resolution over cutting features. After all, it's a whole lot easier to justify buying a game on the Xbone if it just has a lower resolution and frame rate than the PS4 version than missing actual in-game features.

There is literally dozens of articles on the Internet with detailed proof about Xbone' weaker hardware compared to the PS4.
Google is your friend.
