Diablo 3 on Xbox One is 1080p Because Microsoft Insisted? Not According to Phil Spencer.

Originally posted on What's Your Tag?:


The Ultimate Evil Edition of Diablo 3 officially launched for consoles a couple of days ago, and there was a bit of concern about the Xbox One‘s choppier framerate due to the game being pushed to 1080p resolution at the insistence of Microsoft.

According to Blizzard‘s production director John Hight, they had planned to release the game for the Xbox One at 900p, which is what they were showing at E3 2014, until Microsoft deemed the resolution “unacceptable” and insisted it be pushed up to 1080p.

We did have 1080p, but we were finding it challenging to keep our frame-rate,” Hight explained during an interview with Eurogamer. “Because Diablo’s so much of an action game, we wanted to have a responsive feel – especially with four players.

The art is smart, but the rhymes are a crime in Child of Light, the latest turn-based RPG from Ubisoft Montreal. As a little girl in a magical land, you’ll meet great cast of characters, navigate beautiful 2D landscapes and enjoy a storybook narrative full of friendship and tragedy, but not without a few shortcomings to trip yourself up along the way.


In Child of Light, you play as Aurora; a little girl who dies in her sleep and wakes up in the colorful land of Lemuria. It’s there that she meets Igniculus, her firefly companion which you control with the right analog stick. While you’re out exploring, Igniculus can activate switches, open chests and blind enemies to allow Aurora to pass by without entering combat, but if you’ll excuse the pun, combat is where Igniculus shines the most.

Child of Light is a traditional turn-based RPG…
