New SDK Could Enable 1080p Future Xbox One Games

February 11, 2014 by Staff - Leave a comment


We’ve certainly heard a lot of criticism over the lack of Xbox One games that support 1080p resolutions with 60 fps frame rates, but it seems Microsoft has decided to change that.

Jean-Baptiste Bolcato says Rebellion Games’ upcoming shooter Sniper Elite 3 will support 1080p, and according to him, Microsoft’s new SDK will bring the Xbox One’s capabilities up to par with the PS4’s. In general, he was very positive toward the Xbox One.

If Bolcato is correct, this is good news for Microsoft, especially since games that have already been released can be patched to support 1080p once this is in place.

Some rumors regarding the Xbox One launch and SDK

August 19, 2013 by Staff - 5 Comments


Like any well-informed gamer we’re sure you’ve been following the pre-launch progress of the Playstation 4 in addition to that of the Xbox One. In fact you might have even heard several rumors that the PS4 will arrive in October, just before the Xbox One’s launch in November.

More “evidence” in favor of that scenario has recently come to light with infamous NeoGAF poster “crazy buttocks on a train” (aka CBAOT) giving us some fresh dirt on the two consoles. Briefly, for those who don’t know, CBAOT has on several previous occasions leaked some pretty accurate inside knowledge and likes to post in confusing language to try and avoid having gaming sites quote him (well, at least the reputable ones – haha).

This is all still very much rumor and unverified, however it does make for some interesting reading… His full post can be found here, but we’ve pasted the important bits, with accompanying translation, below.

On the Xbox One SDK (software development kit)

NOW B4 YO^USG ET MAD AT ME XBOTTLES this hapens AL THE TIEM in tconsel dvelopmetn and ist wll evetnaly be fix but nochance for erly oct orelaese or…

Translation: There is no live stream of the Xbox One just yet as the architecture is not complete. The latest version of the Xbox One SDK dropped performance by 15-20% across the board (which happens all the time), but it will be fixed. There is no chance of an early release in October for the Xbox One.

On the delayed launch in some European countries

Translation: He says that the localization excuse for delaying the Xbox One launch in some European countries is not true. Instead the problem is to do with chip yield issues and Microsoft not having a coherent single strategy from the start.

On the PS4 launch date:

late oct laucnh for ps4.SONY SDKis rede ,ucan basicaly master2 final rigt now.Today.

Translation: The PS4 will be launch in late October and the PS4 SDK is basically final.

Translations thanks to PS4 Cheats.
