I thought the day would never come, the day when the Xbox One could manage to play a game at 1080p but that day has come! Diablo 3 Reaper of Souls Ultimate Evil Edition will be native 1080p on both Xbox One and PlayStation 4. This is good news for Xbox fans, obviously, as I’m pretty sure they’re sick and tired of having the ‘second best’ experience with dual platform games. The original resolution for Reaper of Souls was to be 900p on the Xbox One but thanks to Microsoft realizing how pointless and unpopular the Kinect device actually is, they allowed for it to be removed, freeing up 10% more GPU bandwidth which in turn allows the console to push the resolution gamers demand. Not only will RoS be 1080p but it will also be a solid 60FPS which is another must have for this generation of gaming.
So it looks like Microsoft are starting to realize how much of pile of junk the Xbox One actually is, over priced, ugly and weak in performance when compared to PS4 and of course PCs. Scraping Kinect as a selling point was a good idea, it enabled the console to be more reasonably priced and freed up GPU bandwidth but I personally think the damage has already been done, Microsoft have dug themselves a hole so deep, not even they can climb out of it.
