I sometimes don't understand Microsoft.

They say this

http://gamerant.com/microsoft-frame-rate-resolution-xbox-one-compare-ps4/ I totally agree with this btw.

Then they do this

http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-2014-diablo-3-xbox-one-1080p-patch-performance-analysis

"We did find it challenging early on to get it to 1080p. That's why we made the decision to drop to 900. That's what we demoed and were showing around E3 time. And Microsoft was just like, 'This is unacceptable. You need to figure out a way to get a better resolution.' So we worked with them directly, they gave us a code update to let us get to full 1080p."

And of course, it ends like this

The cause and effect is fairly straightforward. In areas with more enemies and effects - like the Tristram gates battle, or chaotic Act Two overground encounters - we now see frame-rates drop from the locked 60fps seen at 900p to the low 50s. In short, while Blizzard closes the gap between Xbox One and PlayStation 4 in terms of image quality, there are now performance issues that creep in at the game's extremes while at 1080p.

Seriously. They're like the only company ever to backtrack.

How dare they have a former employee own the Clippers.

Backtrack?, you are saying they now care more about resolution than framerate?, I dont think they backtracked, they are just not following their own policies or they are a bit of a mess about coordination.

I only said backtrack because I wanted to be first without reading your post.

I just assumed it was appropriate.

Carry on.

For someone who doesn't want an x1 you certainly spend a lot of time researching it, how much are you making?

Just glad they improved the performance. Even better than the PS4 which is cool

This would be laughable if you didn't actually believe it.

D3 isn't demanding enough to excuse it, so MS called them on it. Why is this a bad thing? Resolution not being terribly important isn't an excuse for 3rd party laziness that will end up making MS and Xbone look bad. MS was completely justified here.
