At the end of January, we told you that another Xbox One game may not be able to launch with full 1080p resolution. It is becoming a trend for Microsoft’s console we’re sad to say but now it has been confirmed as fact – Thief on Xbox One will be 900p at launch.
The news has been confirmed by Square-Enix, just before the game is due to release on February 25. It means that Thief PS4 Vs Xbox One will once again have resolution differences, with the PS4 set at 1080p native, and the Xbox One version at 900p, upscaled to 1080p.
It was only a few days ago when we told you that Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes would be 720p on Xbox One and 1080p on PS4. With another sub-1080p game on Microsoft’s books, should fans start to be a bit worried about their console?
Then again, 900p is by no means a terrible outcome and even Square-Enix has said that ‘you need really good eyes to spot the differences between the two’.
We’re sure some of you are also getting tired with the constant talk on next-gen resolution differences. Should it just be treated as fact that the majority of PS4 games will be running at 1080p, while the Xbox One will be either 720p or 900p?
Let us know if you are bothered by the slight resolution difference or not. We’ve heard gamers say that ‘the war is already over’ between Sony and Microsoft – what do you think about this statement?
