Nixxes And UFG Ported Tomb Raider Definitive Edition, Reason For Differing Framerates?


According to a new announcement, Nixxes (Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Tomb Raider) handled the PlayStation 4 version of Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition. They also assisted United Front Games (Sleeping Dogs) with the Xbox One port. This next part can be found within the announcement,

In addition to converting the game to Playstation 4, Nixxes Software provided support to United Front Games, the developer responsible for the Xbox ONE version of the game.

The reason for differing frame-rates on PS4 and Xbox One has become a bit more clear. It’s possible United Front Games were having trouble optimizing, and Nixxes stepped in to assist. This is by no means confirmed, it’s simply speculation based on the fact that NIxxes worked on both versions. Another possible culprit could be the engineering time needed to implement Kinect voice commands and gesture controls.

Either way, it seems that Nixxes was able to fully optimize Tomb Raider Definitive Edition on PS4, and also help United Front Games on the Xbox One port.

    what a fu@#$vking bullSH#$it, now they are blaming the studio ?, why can’t just accept this piece of cr$AP the xbone is technically inferior to the PS4 ?, is not right if they are blaming the studio cause of the retard@ed design implementations by Microsh#it.

      Lol angry much? A little mad ur ps4 can’t run 60 fps without massive stuttering and frame drops? Ur “powerful” ps3.5 can’t even run a last gen game smoothly at 1080 60fps while xbox runs perfect 1080 30fps. Nice console there sony haha. U gotta relax and stop being so mad, u bought the ps3.5, deal with it. By u trying to bash Microsoft to get the ps4 out of the crosshairs it shows ur jealousy and lack of faith in ps4. It’s so powerful right? That’s why it stutters lol, that’s why there is a slight if any difference in graphics between multi platform games right? Lol so powerful my butt haha. Nice exclusives sony haha. Don’t get mad that the ps4 is showing it’s weaknesses I’m sure u will be ok play killzone online with the other 20 people who still play it lol or knack, drive clubs coming, oh wait it’s getting horrible previews lol, well u have second son I’m sure that will be mediocre as always haha. Keep coming to xb1 articles and titanfall articles, shows how jealous u guys are. Mad much brah? I’d be too if I didn’t sell my ps4 already to buy an xb1. PS3.5 will do good in the long run so don’t cry big guy, it’ll be ok. Lololol

        Time for your meds.

      • You are flat out wrong

        PS4 solid 60fps, occasional drops to 50fps. Xbone barely 30fps, frequent drops to 20fps. What a blunder. Xbone is a failure.

          There’s just one failure and that’s you. Get your medication.

          • You are flat out wrong

            Xbone blunder of the century. Deal with it.

    This port is a hd port of the old version,crystal dynamics has very little to do with it.

    So if I die in a video game, I should blame the developer, right?

    Don’t blame the user, blame the developer for making me die.

    Sounds legit.
