Xbox One OS Reduction Due To Reaction To Resolution-gate
Industry insiders Ashan Rasheed (Thuway) and Pete Dodd (Famousmortimer) have been on quite a roll this weekend, and now it seems they’re capping things nicely. According to Rasheed, developers at Infinity Ward asked Microsoft for more power to make Call of Duty: Ghosts on Xbox One more comparable to the PS4 version, and at first, they were denied.
There’s no secret that native resolution or “resolution-gate” has been a huge issue for gamers on both sides of the fence. The Xbox One is reportedly getting an 8% jump in GPU power very soon in order to more closely compete with PS4. Basically, the Xbox One’s operating system will soon have less resources allocated to it, and those resources will be available to developers. Thuway was banned from popular gaming forum NeoGAF for not “double-sourcing” his insider information. Again, Rasheed says this info. isn’t double sourced,
It makes sense that Microsoft would want to make more power available to developers to close the gap between the two consoles, but I’ve always thought they had that power on the sideline to unlock more potential down the road and make X1 more future proof.
