Thief On Xbox One Struggle To Hit 900p, "1080p A Forever Problem Due To ESRAM And GPU" says Insider: Updated

Another resolution-gate scandal? According to Jeremy Conrad, Thief runs at 1080p on PlayStation 4 and at 900p on Xbox One.

Thief It seems like gaming press have already started to get their hands on the review copies of Thief, its sill under embargo but it seems like Jeremy Conrad has let the cat out of the bag.

In addition to this, Jeremy added that development at Eidos Montreal struggled to hit 900p resolution mark for Thief on Xbox One.

When asked to comment whether game can achieve 1080p on Xbox One? Conrad replied: "Xbone will have problems with 1080p forever due to the ESRAM and GPU"

If you guys recollect, back in January 2014, Thuway, a well known industry insider leaked that Thief on Xbox One Does Not Run At 1080p.

However at that time Thuway didn't mention the exact resolution at which it runs on Xbox One. Read our coverage of Thuway Claims HERE.

So this new report from Jeremy Conard on Thieft's resolution looks pretty LEGIT, but I will still advice our readers to take it with a grain of salt and consider it as rumor only as official announcement is still awaited.

Yesterday first review score of Thief arrived on internet via Spanish Magazine "PlayMania". The publication awared Thief an excellent review score of "90/100" and praised game's "Stealth, Fluid Control, Esthetics Design", you can read details HERE.

UPDATE: Insider Thuway And Others Were Right:

Those who criticize us for covering information leaked by insiders too often. Square Enix has officially confirmed that Thief on Xbox One runs at 900p and at 1080p on PS4, frame-rate is 30 on both consoles. Read HERE what Square Enix told Eurogamer

I have both systems, and the quality disparity between both is astounding. The xbox one's limitations in hardware make those low resolution textures and aliasing look far worse, especially in titanfall. This is to go along with the horrid FPS drops and ugly screen tearing. It's 2014, time to ditch "upscalers". It's time to quit trying to fool the public's eye with fake "1080" resolution. Even the one game that does run at 1080p, forza 5, looks like trash with its low level of anisotropic filtering, (look far ahead on the road and youll see what I mean) and jaggies everywhere on cars. Its am obsolete piece of hardware and matches a high end PC spec from 2009. Ps4, while no technological juggernaut compared to my twin GTX 690 PC, holds its own extremely well and games look convincingly high res in it's NATIVE 1080p resolution.

720p 900p are not LOW RESOLUTION. in fact it has been stated by programmers there are advantages to 720p....freeing up other graphical effects. given you can't tell side by side 900p and 1080p are that much really are being very silly. oh regarding your PC......noo e cares about PC games Anymore . and showing off about your insanely priced graphics card makes you look even more an idiot

you're a complete idiot and a biased liar.. no one I mean no one can grade how good a console system is when its been out for just a few months.if that was the case people should say the ps3 is garbage because of its crappy first attempt at call of duty. but then look at what can be achieved when the programming is ironed out. the xb one will get much better over time titanfall was a BETA one....and 2 I saw no framedrops....and I played it constantly. if you getjaggies on for need a better TV. I get none

If the XB1 version runs at 900p then we wont notice any on screen differences. Which is great news.

I own a PS4 and do not have an XB1 yet. Interested in getting one when the price drops and I see more of the exclusives. Nevertheless, it seems like gamers have lost their minds. I just don't get it anymore with the whole fanboyism. Why would you comment on a article about a console machine you think is a piece of crap? Don't you have anything better to do? Are you helping any one with your great revelation that the XB1 is less powerful than the PS4? You really think gamers are reading your silly comments and now changing their minds? Ever thought that people may be buying it because they want more than a game machine? Hey geniuses, the answer is no, but you already knew that. So the only reason why gamers will still make these stupid comments is because they have an axe to grind with Microsoft. Take that crap up with MS personally and spare us the drama. As for the rest of you, stop trying to impress us with your limited knowledge acting like you have some great insights. No one is impressed since the gaming sites provide more info than your dopey comments. I will support any company that make good games. MS is in direct competition with Sony and I never want that to go away either. Let them battle it out. We already saw what happens when one clearly runs the console market. Its not good so why would I want either of them to do that? Only an idiot would. Hope MS is successful withe XB1 and give us great games. Sony looks like they already ahead of the game and I love it. Much success to them as well as Nintendo.

Meanwhile, while the ps4 is sold out everywhere in the planet earth, and 10-20 millions of gamers want to buy one, NOW, but they can't find one... meanwhile, in Europe,like in the whole world, stores managers are going totally crazy, because they don't know what to do with these untouched piles of green boxes, at stores, warehouses,that eat up too much precious m3, that could be used to stock much more important and interesting things, like socks or gloves. nobody dares picking one, because they already have a console that can run games at 720p: the x360. Fortunately, the unlucky almost-blind guys can listen to podcasts, and the unlucky deaf gamers have their eyes to see reviews, screenshots,etc. Otherwise, microsoft would invest a few millions on a special campaign, to try to sell the xbox one to a few hundred thousands guys: as long as they buy the system, and buy a live gold subscription, and pay hundreds of $ on micro transactions, even if they can't fully enjoy their gamed, it's still very good for the excel sales file, at microsoft. Really, what would your advises be, to these unlucky managers, that don't know what to do with these green boxes? Look at these pictures, 3 days ago, a friend of mine sent me... poor managers...

You seem completely ignorant of technology and of how Resolution's not 180 pixels off, you're gonna need to MULTIPLY. 1600 x 900 = 1,440,000 pixels 1920 x 1080 = 2,073,600 pixels That means, X1 is struggling to push 633,600 more pixels. Whether or not Microslop are good with software means nothing, because the hardware is INFERIOR. You cannot simply 'Do better' or 'Fix things' when the HARDWARE is Weak. Just as Wii U won't pull off these visuals because it has weaker hardware, it is Limited. They will not, and cannot fix it, developers will continue struggling with the GPU and ESRAM complications. Xbox One consumers will have to deal with it, that PS4 games will Always look better. There's only 2 PS4 games right now at 900p, all the rest are 1080p. Whilst only One game is legitimately 1080p on X1 and that's Forza 5 and it looks like a 360-game. All the rest on X1 are 720p, 900p or inbetween. Deal with it, just don't be deluded.

Forza 5 has decreased detail (trees and crowd) and because it is a racing game, there are less effects (smoke, explosions, thing flying all over the place). This is how it hits 1080p.

If only Jet Set Willy back in the day ran at 1080p on the ZX Spectrum, it would have been such a better game.

Here is one thing people are failing to realize. Graphics still do not make the game. Granted... pretty visuals are nice but if the game play is atrocious, then what is the point. I own both next gen systems and Titanfall is a blast so far. Thief I will purchase for the PS4 due to my controller preferences. I do think Microsoft should get the update out to allow devs to utilize the ram allocated for the kinect(which still has issues that make it a pain to use, such as the basic functions that take numerous attempts to get to work) is it possible to achieve native 1080p on the xbox one? Very possible. Will it be easier to achieve on the PS4? Yes. Does this make the games on xbox one bad? Absolutely not. If you neglect the xbox, you're going to miss out on some exclusives that could be great. Same with the PS4. It still comes down to personal preference. If Microsoft indeed sells off the xbox brand, it will be a huge mistake on their end, as I see another company running it into the ground. I may be one voice among millions, my voice may not stand up or hold any weight in a room full of executives and shareholders who are inching for that next dollar. But as a gamer who is loyal to both brands, the bashing this console for this and bashing that console for this is getting old. I've listened to it and read about it for too long. In doing this, what are people actually gaining? What are they accomplishing? Nothing but self satisfaction. I would assume others are as tired of hearing about it as I am. I was born in the 80s. My first console was an Atari. For those who are oblivious to that, look it up. It wasn't about graphics then and it shouldn't be now.1080p wasn't even a thought. Flat screen TVs that you can mount on a wall was science fiction. To fully appreciate these ideas that have come to be standard now, you need to appreciate the past. In conclusion.... stop whining and complaining about petty things. Pick up a controller and play the game.

Graphic doesn't matter that much, but it matter when a gaming console is using its power to render useless things like Picture in Picture and multiple apps at the same time. I mean if you want an entertainment system good ahead and buy the Xbox One (still don't understand though, a PC is better in every possible way), but if you want a console that puts all of its power into gaming, therefore rendering higher resolution, buy a PS4. Microsoft is only buying everything they can to attract gamers to their console, and sadly, it seems to work.

Blah, blah, blah, excuses, and graphics do matter, And no games gameplay in this and age are going to be atrocious, give it a rest with that pathetic argument people. The X1 is an underpowered and overpriced piece of junk

Actually. The xbox one isn't underpowered. Microsoft just allocated ram to areas that it didn't need to. The PS4 is capable of running 90% of the apps that Microsoft has on the xbox, minus the one thing that takes up way too much of the ram and is trash at the moment which is kinect. As I said previously.... I own both consoles so there is no fan boy ideology here. Not that it matters but I still own a Sega Dreamcast, Nintendo 64, and I have the Wii U. If, as I mentioned earlier, Microsoft would update the system to allow devs to use whatever amount of the systems ram.... then both systems would be on part with each other. If you're a social recluse who's only purpose in life is to find self satisfaction in saying a game system sucks.... more power to you. I just don't see that particular skill doing anything positive for you. Which is why I said pick up a controller and play the game. I would assume that some type of rebuttal will be posted following this comment given the fact that the younger generation complain about damn near everything. It's doubtful that the embarrassing trend of these whining children will end.

I keep telling people the APU is crap. Without Sony amping up the their own version it will always be the bottom of the barrel alternative builds. Once Microsoft got wift of what Sony was doing they just spend millions to buy the rights to make it look like both consoles are equal. The key winning factor is the GDDR5 without a doubt.
