New Xbox One 1080p games in 2014 to silence haters

By Alan Ng - Nov 5, 2013

Amid all of the confusion regarding the Xbox One console and the now confirmation that several of the system’s launch games will only output in 720p, we bring some refreshing news to you. We have confirmation that a game is on the way in 2014 that will finally give you a new 1080p fix and hopefully silence the doubters in the process.

That game is going to be none other than EA Sports UFC. After all of the rumors that the Xbox One will only be able to output most games at 720p, upscaled up to 1080p, we now have one that should feature the same resolution as Forza 5.

EA Sports UFC is scheduled for a release in May 2014 and will also be releasing with 1080p on the PS4 version as well. Unfortunately though, it already looks set that the 1080p visuals may be overshadowed by just 30FPS, rather than the next-gen ‘user requirement’ of 60FPS at all times.

Interestingly, we have heard from EA in a recent interview that in testing EA Sports UFC with 60FPS, it didn’t offer a ‘beneficial impact on gameplay‘. As a result of this, the team will be focusing on delivering a solid 30 FPS combined with the next-gen Motion Blur engine system.

After all of the news regarding 720p resolutions on the Xbox One for COD Ghosts, Battlefield 4 and Titanfall, this is a welcome relief we expect. Although some may not want to believe it, it looks likely that the PS4 may be the most powerful console out of the two, but it’s nice to see that games are still on the way which may look to shift the balance.

Are you relieved that we are getting more 1080p Xbox One games in 2014 after a rough week?

    ” next gen ” should run at 1080p, 60 FPS with no frame rate drop. I’m feeling like these new consoles are just barely next gen. I wonder how long this generation will last.

    • Synchr0nistic

      I’d say about five years. Maybe six.


    Oh and why people a complaining about xbox one not being a doing 1080p console which is a lie, most of the people out there is paying alot of money for hd cable or satellite when you got a 1080p tv and the channels broadcast is native is 720p and it cosy broadcaster a lot of money to even do 1080p. And you know the rich they are cheap as hell and rather you buy more for something that you thought you were getting. So if your going to complain, complain to that monthly bill you pay to cable or satellite that all the broadcast stations are at a native 1080p.


    Look if you want both 1080p and 60fps get a pc its going to take the next next gen home console to get to that point.hell ps3 is a native 1080p system but there are only 7 games that are in full 1080p on a bluray and those 7 aren’t even first party titles and the 360 games are on dvd rom and can do 1080i which is still 720p interlaced so till me how you can get hd of a dvd when dvd can only do max 480p which is progressive scan. At the end of the day it depends on what the developers can and will do and both ps4 and xbox one full 1080p console and 4k ready once those tv start taking off. Developers will make more games for a console that is not difficult for them like ps3 is even though its more powerful than 360 its easier and cost effective for them to be made on 360 and port to ps3. That’s why third party title look and frame rate is bad on ps3 than 360 so frame rate is king at the end of the day just like when people go out and buy a tv. Yeah they want it to be a 1080p screen but more importantly they care about if it can do 120hz, 240hz or 480hz over anything else.

    Hmm ………please name 1 FPS that runs @ 1080P on XBONE

    • jamie

      You may wanna change your question or you will just look stupid, because ghosts actually runs at an up scaled 1080p on the Xbox one..

      Your question should be which FPS runs NATIVE 1080p on the Xbox one you may get a different answer.

      • Daniel Amaya

        I don’t get it. So it’s releasing at 720p, then later on it will be 1080p? What’s native 1080p? I’m confused

        • Abdullah

          Native 1080p is solid full HD with no upscale or no software that makes it 1080p

        • Daniel Amaya

          So why is it releasing at 720p? if it’s really 1080?

        • Evan R

          Because you don’t understand how upscaling works. The game is 720p, period. The XB1 upscales (blows up) the resolution to make it fit on a 1080p (HD) screen so you don’t end up playing in a rectangle surrounded by black bars.

        • Daniel Amaya

          oh ok

        • Daniel Amaya

          I’m playing BF4 on my XB1 right now, and frankly I’m surprised that it’s 720p because it honestly looks like crisp 1080p. The details of this game are amazing. You can even see little scratches all over the trailers and covers to hide behind. I guess the upscaled 1080 and 60fps really does make a difference

  • Nyx

    i am rather having a game that has a solid 60 fps in gameplay than worrying too much about the 1080p resolution.

    • jamie

      totally agree ghosts is up scaled 1080p but at least it runs a constant 60fps…. ghosts on the PS3/4 is running at Native 1080p yes but is having major framerate issues

      • trueLies

        Xbox one suffers from frame rate drop as well.
        Making the Xbox Done clearly an inferior system

      • Tony Anderson

        Tons of people reporting PS4 has major framerate problems with Battlefied 4. Game looks nearly identical graphic wise, so I’d say the X1 is probably the better system for it right now.
