Pete Dodd has been talking on Twitter about why the Xbox One will not run at 60 FPS and 1080p resolution any time soon.
Rumor has it that the Xbox One will be getting a major update in March to address the issues with the current user interface which Dodd called a mess:
â€œI talked to so many dev's who said the UI was a mess. They did a great job pulling it together.â€ This was the case even though, â€œIt crashed a lot of debug units right up till launch. System launchedâ€¦Stable UI.â€
Harsh buy true words, anyone that currently owns an Xbox One will be all to aware that the user interface feels clumsy and doesn't always function as intended and it also suffers with random errors that even Xbox support don't know what they are.
When it come ot the graphics on the Next Gen console Dodd stated:
â€œCloud wonâ€™t help with rendering. Not for half a decade at minimum. As for 1080p/60fps â€“ not anytime soon but tools will improve.â€
So what about the extra 8% GPU that Microsoft are going to free up?
â€œA little. Card is still weak. Worst decision they made making the box. Kinect is expensive so they went with a cheap gpu.â€
So the reason behind the low resolution and frame rates all boil down to low speed and power output.
Lets be honest, if you read this and didn't know what console we were talking about, you wouldn't think we were talking about a Next Gen console would you?
