Xbox One's Ryse: Son of Rome runs at 900p

Microsoft's Aaron Greenberg says Ryse will run at 900p, but adds that Xbox One upscales all titles to 1080p.

by

Crytek's Xbox One launch title Ryse: Son of Rome runs natively at 900p as opposed to in full 1080p, Microsoft has confirmed.

Microsoft had previously said that Ryse ran in native 1080p, but executive Aaron Greenberg took to Twitter to clarify the situation: Ryse runs at native 900p, but the Xbox One will upscale it to 1080p.

Greenberg also reiterated that Forza Motorsport 5 will run in native 1080p.

"Update from team, Forza 5 is native @1080p, Ryse is native @900p, but Xbox One upscales all titles to 1080p & they look amazing," said Greenberg.

Crytek recently detailed Ryse's various combat methods, saying the game's fighting mechanics were "built to feel good."

Microsoft will release the Xbox One on November 22.

Its funny how console gamers are figthing for native 1080p resolution while us pc players we´re trying to play at 4k...

What this and other examples shows is just how the reality of next gen consoles hardare is about a light year below the hype and PR brainwashing.

They are already comptetely outdated even before release. This game. BF4 will not be at 1080p/60 fps, Thief 4 locked at 30 fps and it will get only worse

Unrealistic expectations....you guys are crazy if you think you're going to get $2500-3000 gaming PC performance out of a $400-500 console. That aint gonna happen. There is a reason The Nvida GTX Titan Graphics card cost $1,000 all by it's itty bitty self. If you want bleeding edge you have to pay for it.

Very disappointed to hear this. I was hoping that one requirement would be that EVERY game on the next gen consoles would have to run 1080p  native. I don't want a repeat of the last generation, all bragging about 1080p HD output but every game runs at half that.

I really am disappointed by this.


I'm not saying this out of spite or anything, it's just that I really feel that next gen consoles should be better than this.


Does anyone know if the PS4 will have the same problem or will its slight power advantage help it fare better?

1080p is very out of date, for the record. For those of you bandying about the term as if it's some chalice of excellence, I recommend you search for 'xkcd on HD' and take any of the top links. HD indeed.

Also look at how the ps3 was supposed to be more powerful than the 360 but there's not one game on ps3 that couldn't be done just as good or better on the 360. Dont even bother to mention drakes, god of war metal gear etc... I have them all too. I also own a ps3. I tell you right now not one of them looks better than gears of war games or batman for instance.

What I enjoy more about the 360 is xbox live is a much better experience. Not to mention I dont need a damm 20+ min update everytime I turn on my 360 like I do every other time I turn on my ps3.

That being said im still getting the ps4 too. Infamous 3 looks awesome!

Also why is everyone so upset about the price of the xbox one? Its going to be $540 shipped to my door...not really that much for what it does. Come on my galaxy s4 phone cost more than that! How many of you complaining have phones and or tablets that are just as or are more expensive?

ascendedcobra

Everyone should just calm down. Does anyone remember the launch titles of the 360? They weren't anywhere near the full potential. It wasn't till gears of war came out a year after the 360s launch that we started to see what it could really do.

These launch titles for both the xbox one and ps4 are probably not going to look all that much better than the current systems are capable of.

1600X900 is much better than the native resolutions used in current-gen consoles( Not even 720p). Don't know what the fuss is about.

NeoBillbine
NeoBillbine

Xboners justifications

1. You can't even tell the difference between 720p and 1080p.

2. Graphics don't matter anymore, game play and story are more important.

3. We have the cloudz and spycam.

Microsoft tried so hard to convince us that paying extra £50 over the Ps4 was goin to be worth, to play a exclusive at 900p. Please Respawn release Titanfall on PS4!

Am willing to bet this game will not sell anything near whats expected only because the idea of playing as a roman slave master is not appealing to anyone who would enjoy this genre........Any who is a fan of the show sparticus and the movie gladiator will not want to play as rapists cut throats wife killers.........all the writing of great roman battles are a lie........the romans didnt defeat great armies the dominated and enslaved peasant farmers..........RYSE is a horrible idea for a video game just like army of 2 fighting for corrupt governments in the devils cartel.........neither side in the drug war is worth fighting for

An “anonymous source” tells Edge magazine that the Xbox One can ONLY do up to 900p? LoL

Forza will run at native 1080p!!! XBOX IS THE BEST. Sony Poorstation sucks hairy meat balls.

900p is basically the same 1080p. The eye will not detect the minimal difference of 180p. Plus the image is upscaled anyways. My PS3 is native 1080p and my 360 is native 720p, but upscaled to 1080p, and I can't tell the difference. I'm also using a high-end 55" LED television. And that's from 720 to 1080. If the image is already at 900, there's no difference at all.

@hey_dan Compare the price between a PC that can run 4k and the price of a console and you'll see it's not funny at all, but rather expected. It's like saying diamond is better than quartz, there's no debate but if you want diamond you better pay up.

@ascendedcobra clearly you played the original uncharted, uncharted 2 is graphically better then ALL games on the 360 and uncharted 3 is graphically even better then uncharted 2 go buy uncharted 3 you moron and also don't use the video cable that comes with the ps3 buy a HDMI cable for your ps3 the ps3 didn't come with a HDMI cable the cable that comes with the ps3 only supports SD not HD so you will need to separately buy a HDMI cable and connect your ps3 to a HD TV via that HDMI cable and to make shore your ps3 is outputting HD quality to your TV go to the video settings and set the resolutions click all the resolutions 720p, 1080i and 1080p then click OK then you TV will output in HD then play uncharted 3 is it will hand down be graphically superior to EVERY SINGLE GAME you can get on the 360

@ascendedcobra Really? Gears has to be one of my favorite series ever, the only reason I've ever bought Xbox consoles, but no way does it look better than ANY Uncharted game or MGS & not to mention The Last of Us. Gears has some of the muddiest graphics I've seen this generation. Especially for such a big series.

@ascendedcobra  I played all of the mentioned Games and Uncharted , God of War and Metal Gear look better then Gears and Batman.

@ascendedcobra That's not gonna work this time, the Xbox one/PS4 are basically PC's in architecture. It's something that everyone making game is comfortable working with and they know all the tricks. The Xbox one and PS4 do have differences but on paper they should be minimal.

I agree that over time they'll squeeze more and more out of it, but there's no excuses for why new hardware can't run games at full HD in 2013.

I'll gladly take the 8GB of GDDR5 over whatever shitty RAM the Xbone uses. Also, the GPU of the PS4 is roughly 30-40% faster than your Shitbox One. You're a mindless sheep.

@Vodoo Neither PS3 nor 360 is a native 1080p platform; Most games on either system are 720p, and upscaled from there. I can very, very easily tell the difference between a movie/show in 720p vs 1080p on my 27" monitors, so I'm assuming I would still be able to see the difference between 900p -> 1080p as well. I say "assuming" because I don't think I've ever gotten any 900P movies/shows.

The WiiU is actually the first "console" to be native 1080p.

@Soulsxx Zzzz, seriously? Talking about the LAST generation? They are almost 10 years old... 1080p has been the standard PC resolution for YEARS now, you'd think the NEXT generation of consoles (Which would have to last for the next 8-odd years) would be able to at LEAST run all their games at 1080p at launch.

Please, dearest fanboy, re-read my post. I did not insult or demean your precious consoles, I merely stated that I was expecting more, and that I was disappointed to hear the news.

@Master_Overlord @ascendedcobra I first bought Gears 1 for PC and it was the first current gen game I got. It looked Amazing. Then later I bought a 360 and got Gears 1 for it and it looked horrible compared to the PC. Uncharted 1 and Gears 1 both look good but they have two completely different scenery types (uncharted had jungle and Gears 1 has more urban) I think they both look good at what they were trying to accomplish at the time.

When it came out in 06 it was mind blowing. You've got to look at the last game.

ascendedcobra

Well if the games are running on old engines that was designed for current systems then thats why. Many games are also coming out for all systems both generations so there going to look mostly the same on the new consoles.

I also doubt anyones had the full spec development consoles long enough to develope a new game engine and new game at the same time. We should start to see some really amazing games that could not be touched by the current consoles by mid to late 2014 is my guess.

tom2750

@Valen_Ca @barrica there is a difference you probably just haven't seen real 1080p because neither the ps3 or 360 really runs games in real native 1080 not even the games that say 1080p on the back of there box are actually 1080p its just 720p or sometime even less up scaled to 1080p so it looks no where near as good as real 1080p if you have been gaming on a gaming PC you would be able to see the difference because they support real 1080p but once you buy a next gen system you will be able to see the difference once you play a game in native 1080p

@aci808 Just to play devils advocate since I am buying a PS4 and not a Xbox1... Sony also said the ps3 was twice as fast as the 360 (don't quote me of that but I know it was something outrageous).... They always overhype their console... *cough* ps2...

@69 @Vodoo U will really need  a good eye to spot the deference, plus a 720p to a 1080p is much bigger margin than the 900P to 1080P margin that u talking about. Plus keep in mind that, that 900p will be upscale to 1080p, and will look even better than the 900p. The game will look great, so stop bitching about nothing. What you should be worry about, and that's only if you getting a xbox one and the game, is the fun factor of the game and if the game reviews good.

@ascendedcobra  A little late to this but I'm sorry but maybe you are not using  1080p tv? but PS3 did have the best looking games from first party developers. You're talking about uncharted 1, have you played part 2, 3, gow 3, metal gear??? Gears looks great but not up there with these games in graphics. I never experienced a beautiful game like uncharted 2 and 3 on 360 alone.

@ascendedcobra I love Gears, but Gears having better graphics than God of war 3 or Uncharted 2&3 is just wrong.

Lol! I first bought my ps3 when I saw the review uncharted got. It was like "best looking game ever on console" bla bla bla. When I got home with my brother in law we poped it in and we could finally play (30 min later) we were both like underwhelmed. I mean yes it looked good but it had been hyped up to be so amazing and far better than anything else. We were like um have they seen gears of war? My brother in law laughed at me for spending the extra money when I already had the 360.

Of course I did enjoy the game and am glad I got the ps3 though. I just take peoples opinions about that stuff with a grain of salt these days.

@ascendedcobra Im sorry but gears of war graphically does not come close to matching uncharted and god of war let alone metal gear

@dcno07 @aci808 And it was. 3rd party developers didn't know how to work with PS3 well, but look at 1st party games -- GoW: Ascension and Last Of Us looked good enough to even put some PC games to shame.

And PS2 was probably the best console of all time, both in quality and quantity.
