Battlefield Hardline Runs at 900p on PS4, 720p on Xbox One

by on March 9, 2015

Visceral Games has confirmed that Battlefield Hardline will run at 90op on PS4 and 720p on Xbox One. It’s understood that neither version is 1080p because the developer wanted to hit 60fps.

There is of course some debate about how much difference 1080p actually makes. Speaking to MCV Rich Leadbetter from Digital Foundry said: “The success of titles like Watch Dogs and Battlefield 4 on console demonstrates that 1080p isn’t essential for a best-selling title.”

Battlefield Hardline launches March 19.

    I never used to care much about this stuff, but building that gaming PC has meant every game has been 1080/60, and going back to consoles at a lower frame rate, or lower resolution… I dunno, I’m starting to feel like these new, powerful consoles, should be hitting higher highs.

      Where’s the like button? LoL
      Agreed. Many don’t care because they haven’t seen better, naturally…otherwise, they wouldn’t be playing multiplatform titles on console. Once you see a nice, silky 1080p@60+FPS, full AA and AF filtering and Very High, to Ultra settings…yeah, you aren’t going back to that horrible low quality crap. 1080p has been around since 2003-2004, and our old gaming PC’s have been gaming at the 4:3 equivalent of 1080p, since around 2003(1280×1024 and 1600×1200). It’s pathetic that consoles are still chasing a 10-11 year old resolution format, while PC’s are now entering into 4K.

        I honestly would have been in the “don’t care” camp. In fact, I’ve said similar on our podcast numerous times.

        But now… not the case. Having had *every* game be 1080/60 on PC, I finally realised… shit, I don’t wanna go back!
