EA Claims First Xbox 360 1080p Game Crown
Posted by XanTium | February 7 17:54 EST
 
From gamasutra.com:


Following yesterday's news that Sega's March 20 release of Virtua Tennis 3 would herald the first Xbox 360 game to feature native 1080p support, a representative from Electronic Arts has revealed to Gamasutra that its upcoming NBA Street Homecourt, shipping a month earlier on February 20, will also support the high end resolution on Xbox 360.

While Microsoft first announced support for native 1080p games and movies in its October 2006 Xbox Live update, it heralded a number of titles competing to be the first to offer the highest-end HD resolution, and it appears that EA's title will indeed beat Sega's to retail with the hitherto not well-publicized resolution included.

Ok, while this sounds good on the surface, it is a double edged sword.

All games can quite easily claim 1080p, but nothing is free. Say goodbye to scene complexity and special effects just to push reasonable framerates at higher resolutions. 720p should be the standard for this Gen. Curse Sony with their lies pushing M$ to compete on this false front.

Hence why the first games supporting 1080p are virtual tennis and NBA Street Homecourt

gears of war runs in 1080 and looks awsome. If gears of war can do it, why can't everything else (with significantly worse graphics)

Heh, I've been playing games in 1080p for a long time now....on the PC. smile.gif

It's still good that the 360 is getting 1080p titles though. Maybe that will finally shut those blind PS3 fanboys up - "BUT TEH 360 ONLY UPSCALES TO 1808p! TEH SUXORZ NO NATVIE RANDORINGN!!!!11!" rolleyes.gif

Gears is rendered in 720p and upscaled to your desired resolution. This article is talking about games that are natively rendered by the GPU in 1080p.

blink.gif a full 1080p game for the 360 ???? I wonder if it will be up scaled because I thought the only way as of right now to get 1080p is threw HDMI. Which the xbox does not have a hdmi connection. So in other words if your tv handles the 1080p the xbox will up scale it to that. Then in return EA can say they made the first true 1080p game for the 360. All I say is keep the game at 720p or 1080i I can only wonder how many gpu and cpu ARE GOING TO MELT biggrin.gif

You thought wrong.

"Component video is capable of producing signals such as 480i, 480p, 576i, 576p, 720p, 1080i and 1080p."

yea I was just gona say ask that. I herd some different stuff about it being 1080p or not, because it doesnt say its 1080p on the back of the game. Maybe these will say 1080p on the back.

Good for EA. I will buy a game just because I can play it in 1080P. Other developers should take note.
