Konami has recently published their plans for their next major release, Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes on next generation consoles. MGS5 will run at a native 1080p resolution at 60 frames per second on the Sony PS4 but just 720p at 60 fps on Microsoft’s Xbox One. This is not the first time where a major game developer opts for a lower resolution gameplay, we have seen similar actions from Battlefield, Call of Duty, etc. Microsoft on its part always declined to accept that Xbox One is under powered when compared to PS4. Microsoft have their own example like Forza which runs 1080p on Xbox One.

Microsoft’s comments on lack of 1080p on several games in Xbox One,
“I think the point that gets lost a lot is that it’s all a game of trade-offs. Resolution alone is not the final determination regarding if a game looks great or not. It’s one of many different levers and it’s up to the game teams to decide what is best for their unique game experience.”
