Ever since the announcement of Playstation 4 and Xbox One, there has been a lot of hue and cry on topic of how some of the AAA multiplatform games (Battlefield 4, CoD: Ghosts and many others) fail to run at better resolution i.e 1080p 60 FPS on Xbox One than PS4.
Microsoft's Albert Penello, in a recent podcast to GamerTagRadio defended Xbox One capability of running multiplatform games at better resolution than its competitor. Penello claimed that Xbox One still has the Best looking game on any platform till date, and its Crytek's "Ryse: Son of Rome".
He also added that this 1080p vs 720p debate are overblown and were given too much preference against quality of the game and overall experiences.
Penello said: "Look, I had a lot of time to think about this and I believe in what I said. I believe that the differences between the boxes [PS4 and Xbox One] is not all that great and I know what is going behind the scenes and I have access to more information about some of this thing than a lot of people. Sometimes people tend to neglect the points that are in my favor and they like to highlight the points that tell me I am wrong. I still think Ryse is still the best looking game on any platform. Period. End of story."
When asked to comment on recent Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition controversy and other multiplatform games resolution, Penello said:
"I think if you look at the title which we launch, which were multiplatform titles. The bulk of them were the same. I think there were 12 titles were released on both platforms [PS4 and Xbox One], leaving three all of them had the same performance on both boxes.
Everybody wants to focus on frame rate, there is the Tomb Raider, there is a resolution thing going on and OK, there could be a lot of reasons why that could be true but we are just a [few] weeks in, we just shipped, it’s a long generation. People who bought an Xbox One are going to be in for an awesome generation of games that are only going to get better. I think these little things get way overblown versus like the quality of the games and the real differences in experiences which are pretty minor."
Do you agree with Albert Penello clarification that "1080p vs 720p" resolution debate are OVERBLOWN and is Ryse: Son of Rome indeed the best looking game ony any platform?. Share your views with us in the comment section below.

The preview reads: "Une heure et demi nous ayant suffit à boucler près de la moitié des chapitres que compte le jeu, autant le dire, on a peu d'espoir de voir notre verdict final chanter une autre musique (à moins d'un miracle sur la fin du jeu ou sur le mode coop)"
This translates to: "It took us an hour and a half to beat nearly half the chapters of the game, so let's say it now, we have little hope to see our final review sing another song (unless some kind of end game miracle or on coop mode "

Crytek's upcoming Xbox One exclusive game "Ryse: Son of Rome" runs at 900p and 30 FPS resolution. This has been a cause of concern among Xbox fans ever since its official confirmation because much better resolution i.e 1080p and 60 FPS was expected from Crytek.
According to P J Esteves, Design Director at Crytek, difference between 900p and 1080p is infinitesimal and players can hardly recognise it.
In a detailed explanation, P J Esteves said: "The difference between 900 and 1080 it's like... when some of the best rendering programmers in the world, when we sit down and look at the difference and they're like, no, 900 is fine, the difference is infinitesimal that you're not going to really recognise it."
"And then you look at the two and you go, well, what do we get for 900? Well PJ, you have 10 more AI on the screen. Sold! To a lot of people it might seem like an oversimplification, but it's the absolute truth. What's the best for your game? Games like a shooter, running at 60 frames per second would be important to me because you really want that twitch response."
"So if people choose a lower res and a higher frame-rate, then as long as the game is good and it looks beautiful for what they're doing or what they want to hit, then that's fine."
