TitanFall Xbox One 792p versus PC 1080p offers little difference

Now that it has been confirmed by Respawn Entertainment that the Xbox One version of TitanFall will run at 792p when it launches tomorrow, due to the game’s aesthetics the comparison with the PC version which runs at a full 1080p shows that the actual differences are quite minor when simply looking at the game in non combat situations. However,  the game’s running operation in frames per second is the key component here for silky smooth gameplay and so it’s obvious why the Xbox One version has kept the relative smooth running frames per second from the Beta in accordance with its lower resolution.  That said, it’s quite possible Respawn will optimize the game further post launch with an update that could push the resolution higher.

We published  a TitanFall Xbox One 792p versus PC 1080p  video from the Beta last month which shows that juxtaposed the game’s texture details are pretty much the same. Naturally the Youtube compression has diminished the overall quality for both versions but doesn’t hide the similar looking texture details. Also, the Xbox One version has been upscaled to 1080p via the console. All said and done, the differences aren’t that noticeable, even when looking at both games in operation on their respective platforms in realtime. Sure, the PC version sports a much more cleaner, sharper look, but overall Xbox One owners shouldn’t feel too disheartened that the game hasn’t reached the pinnacle of 1080p. What’s perhaps most important is that the game plays smoothly, as dips in frames can kill the experience, and whilst during the Beta there were some (and are still present in the final build), for most gamers who embarked on its delights, found the game to be top quality regardless of the output resolution.

    Little differences or not it still doesn’t warrant both versions getting an equal score. You have to dock the X1 version for the final resolution. Let’s not act like resolution doesn’t matter when one version is superior to the other. This docking doesn’t mean a full 10 points, but something separating the two in reviews would make sense.

      Exactly if you have a platform that we run this game your fine I kinda happy to see that the two version of the game have different resolution because this is the perfect game to kill this whole resolution gate bs. Resolution doesn’t matter if the game is fantastic

    Little difference? Ha. Also: since when is PC limited to 1080p? Just makes no sense in that sentence like how you would put it like with a console. I’ll just keep playing on 3x 1440p thank you. Please tell me how little the difference is then…

        • Robert Toth March 12, 2014 |

          I’d think so judging from benchmarking tests. I can promise you my i7 4770k and GTX 770 won’t run games at 1440p on 3 monitors and still get 60 fps. I’d be lucky to get 10 frames.

  3. You’d have to be completely blind not to be able to see the difference, it clearly looks better on PC, xbone looks washed out and drab, like most games do on the inferior xbone.

    $500 for the inferior version on a freaking launch console that should be on par with a decent gaming rig.

    • Robert Toth March 12, 2014 |

      I think its unrealistic to think a $500 dedicated console would be on par with a decent gaming rig. You get what you pay for.

      • RoadShow March 12, 2014 |

        Then you don’t know what you are doing.

        1st off the $400 PS4 is equiv. to a mid range gaming PC.

        2nd do some research. Other people have been able to get a PC to outperform the PS4 with $500 but I’m not so sure that included windows and certainly didn’t include a monitor which should be fine.

        Now me I just built a gaming PC with my little bro and it did end up being $1000 when it was said and done but that is with windows and a monitor and we somewhat future proofed it. Now he’s got a great set up. PS3 with PS+ and PC.

          So you’re saying the XBOX One should run as good as a decent gaming rig?- because we’re not talking about a PS4, which is not on par with a decent gaming rig either. It’s on par with a low grade PC.

          But to humor you, I think a $500 rig is crap too. Although it MIGHT perform as good as an X1 (doubt it), its certainly not going to be much better. Remember, YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR. The X1 is perfectly fine for $500. It gets the job done, but its never going to run games as good as a “decent gaming rig” which I consider to be somewhere in the ballpark of an 3rd gen i5 with a GTX660.

          Btw…Congrats on your little brother joining the master race.

          • RoadShow March 12, 2014 |

            PC master race is pathetic. You miss out on so much being a PC only gamer.

            My little bro is like me and owns PS3 and PC and will get a PS4 like me probably for Christmas.

            It’s the smart way to game. Since many xbox exclusives are on PC with free online play.

            I prefer my console over my gaming PC these days though. PC just has less and less appeal to me.

            And PS4 is equivalent to a mid range gaming PC. It’s silly to say it’s not. A high end PC can push 1440p and 120fps and beyond.

    I guess the biggest difference, and the one that will make the biggest impact, is that the PC will be holding a consistent 1080@60 whilst the XB1 will be crawling into single digits during the heaviest action. Even with it’s sub standard resolution.
