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.


Remember this "Most games can’t justify running at higher than 1280x720—it would actually make them look worse because of the compromises they will have to make in other areas." from a Ms blog.


Hopefully new 360 with hdmi will have more memory on gpu but highly doubtful.

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.

I know the demo wasn't 1080p. It didn't look like a 1080p game on my display; looked like 720p.

That's weird... so many people are claiming there are other 1080p games... but I guess EA is the first to claim it....

If you sit close you can tell that superman, SC:DA, Lost Planet and everything else aren't rendered in 1080p, they're just upscaled. At a distance it looks fine, up close not so much. You'd have to play a pc game in 1080p to know what to look for. I'm downloading the nba street demo now, which (the full version anyway) is supposed to have native 1080p.

Tennis and NBA aren't taxing games at all. So 1080p at 60fps is doable with those type of games but like some have already said, Gears of War would run or look like shit if it were natively rendered at 1080p. So any of those type of games would be out of the question.

I'm happy this is happening because now an HDMI Xbox 360 is more of a possibility even though MS has said officially that it's just something they're toying with. happy.gif Those prototypes could become real someday! ph34r.gif

Nice but I don't really give a shit anyway. At 3 meters from my television, at 30-60 fps I for one won't see much difference between 720p and 1080p, and if you're really concentrating on the gameplay you shouldn't even have time to really notice. Also, like some posters already noted: remember that 1080p rendering takes 4x more pixel crunching power, and this has to come from *somewhere*. Think less multitexturing, simpler vertex & pixel shaders etc. This will make games look crappier than they do now, *especially* on 1080p...

I agree with the guy before: damn Sony for hyping up the 1080p bullshit so far that MS gave in to it. This is like choosing quantity over quality, just to be able to bad-mouth and yell at each other... mad.gif. It's especially sad knowing that the PS3 will have mostly 720p games as well, seeing that it has a weaker GPU than the 360.

BTW, playing HDTV / 1080p is a different subject, 1080p is great for that...

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

That is probably the only reason anyone would get that game.

Too bad NBA Street's framerate takes a hit at 1080p and is only 30fps, while it's 60fps at 720p.

Virtua Tennis 3 is 60fps at 1080p with 2xAA.

Even if NBA Street is first, it'll play worse at 1080p, so screw you, EA.
