I've always taken HD gaming to mean 720P or above.So that's 360, PS3, Wii U (though there are some Xbox/PS2 games that might fit also).kelp7 wrote:Now, can someone clear this up for me. Which consoles can you play HD games on ? I presume when people say 'HD', they are talking about 1080p or something?Matt_B wrote:Not that I can really blame them, as most Nintendo games still have the look of the GameCube era about them, even if they're now in HD.
Are there any consoles that shift 1080p graphics around?
Or does 720p count as 'HD' ?
(forgive my lack of knowledge)
There are 1080P games on PS3 (not sure on 360), but they either are'nt as demmanding or use 'tricks' like resizing resolutions on the fly (Wipeout HD).
PS4 currently seems to handle Native 1080P games better than Xbox One which upscales games from 720P to 1080P.
The benchmark gfor Ps4/Xbox One gaming seems to be set at 1080P, 60 FPS, with lot of people not happing with say Club Drive running currently at 30 FPS, but has real time lighting, day-night cycle etc you won't see in Xbox One Forza, which is 1080P, 60 FOS.So, currently there's still a trade off.
Just to mess things further, Alan wake on 360, which looks stunning, is not a 'true' HD game, running only at 540P, but to me just proves how meaningless the HD arms race often is.
