I think it’s pretty much a certainty by now that if you’re slightly invested in the ‘next generation’ (when is it acceptable to call it current generation?) consoles, you’d have heard of the so called resolution gate issues. To sum it up, the Xbox One is having issues running games at the same resolution and frame rate of the PS4. Titles like BF4 and Tomb Raider are two of the higher profile games to be released which are technically inferior on Microsoft’s platform compared to Sony’s.
Today 505 Games have confirmed Sniper Elite 3 is going to be joining the list of titles which have an advantage on Sony’s hardware platform. Jean-Baptiste Bolcato, Senior Producer at 505 Games. said “Well as close as possible to 60 frames per second on both the systems, it will probably be closer to 60 on the PS4 but it drops to around 40 and 50, but you won’t really feel or notice it. It may be a little bit slower on Xbox One but we are hoping to have full priority between the two machines. The only thing the Xbox One won’t have is stereoscopic 3D as they do not support it yet,” in a brief interview with GamingBolt.
It’s unknown what the resolution of either platform will be right now, so we only can use the statement regarding the FPS as the only yardstick of measurement. It’s important to bare in mind that Sony’s machine isn’t running at 1080P / 60FPS on all titles either. The Order 1866 has been confirmed to run in only 30FPS, and because of the extremely large borders on the 1080P display, in reality the GPU is rendering closer to 1920×800 instead of 1920×1080.
