Destiny beta PS4 Vs Xbox One resolution

By Alan Ng - Jul 16, 2014

The countdown is now on to the Destiny beta start time on PS4 and PS3. For those that are interested in what resolution Bungie has managed to get for the beta, we’re pleased to bring you a quick reminder on what the benchmark will be.

PlayStation gamers have the chance to play the Destiny beta first thanks to an exclusive agreement set with Sony and those playing on PS4 will be happy to hear that the beta is running at 1080p and 30FPS natively.

However, we’ve just had confirmation that the Xbox One Destiny beta will not be 1080p as Bungie has said that the game is still a work in progress with regards to trying to get the game to 1080p.

The team are aiming for 1080p when the final version is launched in September, but those playing the beta will not enjoy 1080p. Will it really matter though? The beta is there for testing purposes and from Bungie’s perspective, to stress test those Destiny multiplayer servers to see how they can cope.

You shouldn’t be too concerned on how the game looks technically from a beta as it will always be improved before the final release – just enjoy the gameplay and see what you think compared to Call of Duty, Halo and Titanfall after all of the hype.

With that said though, let us know which platform you are playing and whether resolution is important to you regardless when thinking about buying new games.

Do you have your Destiny beta code ready and waiting? Not long now.

    The problem here is that most “next gen” games have been in development since before the release or the announcement of “next gen” consoles. So all games coming out are still being released for ps3 and the 360. we truly wont know what the X1 and PS4 have in store until Sony and Microsoft stop supporting the 360 and PS3

    Meanwhile, a lot PC gamers are playing game at 4K resolution… the problem is, we are in 2014, where 1080p and 60 fps should be the MINIMUM requirement for next gen games. However whether it is PS4 or Xbox One, they both using very barebone mid range hardware, and struggles with a standard that PC achieved since 2006… yes, the gameplay is important, but technology should improve drastically with time. those so called “next gen” consoles are not meeting the standard of the current time. Thats why although i have a ps4, I play mostly on my PC to get the maximum enjoyment out of the multi-plat games.

      and they also paid over 1000’s of £/$ upgrading so they can cope with new gamees 😉

      Not realistic.

    • Vecha

      Yep. Maximum enjoyment is only achieved by graphics.

  • It should be about the games

    Lower the resolution so that the game will run at 60fps. Why are developers constantly chasing 1080p at the expense of other, more important things like speed and full, diverse worlds? Don’t gimp my games. Give me great game-play and loads of interesting content. Resolution should be the last thing on their minds.

    1080p doesn’t make a game great its is alll about how much content and story and how u feel as the character how u can customize and make it your own .. explore ..loot..find hidden places not who gets what first or a fight about how hi the resolution is I am a true gamer none of that crap matters stupid game war crap I realy don’t care if what people like I kno what I do and that’s all that matters……..
