Microsoft Xbox One quote from May 2013 "We purposefully did not target the highest end graphics. We targeted it more as a broad entertainment player."

Um, duh. This applies to any console.

Remember how Destiny was 900p beta on xboxone.
They promise 1080p at launch though.

Who else thinks MS shot bungie in the foot demanding 1080p as well?
They only got 30fps to work with as is...

Scary thoughts no?

Couldn't care less. Bungie already said they will run pretty much identically. I'm not really one to complain about such trivial matters though. Especially the D3 60 fps going to low 50's. As if anyone here will even notice lol.

Aww man. So now they're forcing developers. I thought Phil Spencer just denied telling developers what resolution to run. Another 180 or was he telling a lie?

No. When fans are making such a massive deal out of 1080p its only natural devs will cut corners to hit 1080p otherwise people are just going to cry that they didn't. Its what people are asking for and focusing on, so devs are providing but at a cost.

At the end of the day I'd rather have a game at 720p and 30fps but loaded up with graphical sexyness than 1080p 60fps with lower textures, aa, shadows etc. When I want the complete package I game on PC.

I'm pretty sure they also forced Respawn to up the res of TF to 792p just so it wouldn't be 720p.. and we all know that game runs like ass on Xbone.

Forza defined the Car Simulator Genre, it was always the highest selling franchise in the genre by a HUGE margin. - Izraeil

Eh? I played the open beta on PC and then again when it was free for a weekend a couple of months ago. The game is decidedly average (not to mention shallow) and that's without the technical difficulties that come with playing it on the 360 or the Xbone.
