As requested by some of our regular members, I have created and pinned this topic for you all to discuss anything and everything related to the PS4 and Xbox One resolution / FPS news and developments. Please use this topic if and when a developer announces what resolution/FPS their game will output and do not create individual topics. This is for the benefit of those who have no interest in the subject elsewhere in the Gamers' Hangout, while giving the rest of you a dedicated space to delve into the topic in as much detail as you wish. Please stay on topic and refrain from derailing the discussion towards topics such as PSN vs XBL.
All of the community rules apply as usual and this is not an invite to create a "war" between owners of each console.
IGN have compiled a list of details for currently available and soon to be released games here
Topic cleaned - Please read!
I'll be frank with you guys, this topic has one last shot at staying and then I'll be closing it. Whereever we go from there is then on your neck and if the Gamers' Hangout descends back into every game / topic being brought down to resolution discussion, you've no one to blame but yourself. Let's not forget it was some of the very vocal members of the GH who asked for this topic to be made in the first place, not the staff. Right now it serves a very specific purpose in the subforum and that is to allow those who are interested in technical details relating to the games and to discuss them freely while not spilling out into every other discussion where others aren't interested. That sounds like a pretty reasonable solution to me and why I agreed to create the topic in the first place. That does not mean that those of you who don't care can come in and thread crap with comments along the lines of "wow, x pages and this is still going", "who cares, gameplay is what matters" etc etc. People care about it and if you can't share the sentiment then needless to stay (again), don't post. This topic isn't for you if you are quite happy to buy a game and play it without any more thought about how it was made, what technical issues it has or what differences there are between platforms.
With that said, the following type of discussion is what I'd expect to see:
- Screenshots and videos of games highlighting either their performance or differences
- Hardware discussion, to any degree or depth. If you don't have an understanding you may still take part to learn more.
- Articles and news either released by the developers, platform holders or any other informable source.
- Your personal opinion about the above.
Bearing in mind this is just an example of acceptable comments, as I can't possibly include every imaginable comment on my own. However, It doesn't give you free roam to take rules into your own hands either and interpret what is and isn't flame bait or trolling. Above all else, the community rules are still in effect in this topic and even more so to allow it to continue with structure.
From here on anyone who derails/flames/trolls this topic will be given an instant warning, regardless of how long you have been a member or if believe yourself to be more correct than the next person. That includes those of you who decide to play the flamebait / trolling card when you don't agree with someone. If you can't agree to disagree with someone then drop the conversation and move on. This isn't a war or competition to be won, but if you continue a fight you'll find yourself in trouble more often than not. If you truly believe someone is breaking the community rules then use the report button. Complaining about it in this topic or elsewhere is not acceptable.
I'll be adding this comment to the OP so there are no excuses for not reading it nor will it be an excuse if you're caught breaking the above rules set out.
