The Xbox One version of Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition will run at 1080p after a day-one patch, Blizzard Entertainment has confirmed. The patch boosts the resolution from 900p to 1080p. Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition for Xbox One also runs at 60fps, bringing the game's resolution and frame rate on par with the PlayStation 4 version.

"The game will be available [in] 1080p on both the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One," Blizzard associate producer Tiffany Wat tells GameSpot. "Native 1080p resolution. You will need to download the day-one patch for the Xbox One to get that support, but it will be there. We're very happy about that."

That the Xbox One version of Diablo III will run in 1080p at launch this month is somewhat of a surprise. Blizzard Entertainment developers said last month that while it would be possible to get to 1080p some day, the studio did not expect to make it there for launch day on Xbox One.

Though Blizzard's statement today does not mention it specifically, the developer said previously that the Xbox One June SDK (an update for developers that boosts console GPU power) could allow Blizzard to improve the resolution though a patch.

Diablo III launches August 19 for Xbox One and PS4. Publisher Activision Blizzard announced this week that the game has now sold more than 20 million copies, including the Reaper of Souls expansion. Diablo III is currently available for PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3.

<< LINK REMOVED >> No keep your Xbox. Theese days 60 fps far more important for most than the 1080P cause really you get a little more jaggies than PS4 that's it really. If you like the exclusives Xbox has then hey go for it. I got the best possible graphics for my money and the exclusives I wanted so long you happy with yer choice I'll be happy with mine.

<< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >> PC cannot run those games for 400 dollars so I apologize your a PC addict. Most people don't want to waste money just play games. It's like bronzing yer turd instead of just flushing it. once it does it's job you just want to throw more money at it so you can set it on your mantle.


Most people with any common sense would just flush it =P But hey enjoy throwing your money out a window =)

<< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >> And you're playing games in slow motion comparing them side by side on two TVs? You're a dolt. I could show you one on one TV and one on another TV in the next room with the consoles hidden and you wouldn't be able to tell the difference. Anyone that thinks any of DigitalFoundry's "experiments" are generalizable is borderline disabled.

Resolution is already hard as it is. Differences is texture quality, shadows, lighting, all of these. Yeah, no

<< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >> For the most part. The problem with these fanboys is they seem to think console are powerful spec wise. I always tell people if you want the best performance/ FPS/ Texture and resolutions get a PC.

<< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >> Performance wise console beats PC hands down. You CANNOT make a PC for 400 dollars that can run Xbox One/PS4 games as well as the consoles for that price. period. Already proven spec wise you get far more bang for your buck with a console.


So um- Ha. Ha. =)

Who said anything about price ? You pay for what you get. I can however get one for around $650. That is better.

@Kinguard73 @sammoth @deadline-zero0 @Shango4 @rogerpdaultry @standstillsteve That isn't the issue we are talking about, stay on subject. We are talking about Specs since it's so important to you.
