Recently, Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition was released on Xbox One and it brings with it a host of new features for Blizzard’s isometric action-role-playing game. Back at E3, Blizzard said that Diablo III would run at 900p/60fps on Xbox One for better performance. Microsoft came to know about it and worked directly with Blizzard to boost the resolution to 1080p on Xbox One. In fact, Microsoft released a patch for Xbox One to enable this. 1080p has become a new marketing gimmick for game developers as they highlight it whenever possible to project it as a next generation console. Microsoft didn’t want consumers to experience lower resolution than PS4 for Diablo on Xbox One, so they went directly to the developer to fix this issue. “We did have 1080p, but we were finding it challenging to keep our frame-rate. Because Diablo’s so much of an action game, we wanted to have ...

Lionel Raynaud, VP of creative at Ubisoft said that Ubisoft isn’t abandoning the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 anytime soon few months back. But now, Ubisoft Chief Executive Officer Yves Guillemot has revealed that Ubisoft will stop developing games for Xbox 360 and PS3 after 2015. “What we see is that this year is still fine for the PS3 and 360. But next year because they are selling very quickly, we’ll move to the new hardware. After 2015, it will be hard for us to create games for those systems,” Guillemot explains. I think it is too early to dismiss the market value of last generation consoles that includes Xbox 360 and PS3. With a huge install base of over 150 million units, developing games for these platforms should be profitable enough. Also, Ubisoft is planning to capitalize only on the next generation gaming platforms Xbox One and PS4 which ...
