Other example of why resolution is overrated. If we didnt call DF for pixel counting, we would never notice the resolution is so low. I hope someday the community realize that.



Having gotten every flower from the demo a couple of times I'm really surprised to hear that was the resolution, and I'm playing it on a 130" 1080p projector. Game is just beautiful to watch and play.

You're probably right tbh, had DF not told us I doubt anyone would ever have known it wasn't HD in TV mode.

As much as I love reading/watching DF's content as someone with an interest in the technical side of making games, I do sometimes feel like it inevitably makes people place too much important on specs like the number of pixels.

can be interesting sometimes though to see things like Anthems optimization for the PS4P and X1X, seemed that DF figured that there was more work on the playstation side of things to make the game run smoother on the platform where it would probably earn them more money since it's outselling the X1X by such a large margin, just those times when power isn't the only factor in how a game runs on a certain system.

 

Yoshi though, I would agree that people would not have imagined that to be sub 720p when on a tv screen, it really is beautiful to look at, just such a playground of bizarre textures mashed together to create a world unlike anything else in games that I can think of.

Way lower res than I expected, saying that, game looks good despite low resolution.



The game looks gorgeous despite the low resolutions. The artstyle hides it really well. In Doom the blurryness was noticable at times, but I'd have sworn Yoshi runs in HD if I hadn't seen the DF video.

I like seeing dynamic resolution utilized in yet another of Nintys 1st/2nd party titles though. If we ever do get a Switch pro or a backwards compatible Switch 2, all of those games will maintain rocksolid performance while getting a serious resolution boost.

30 fps on the map was obvious, but resolution is much harder to discern. There's not much difference between 675p and 720p anyway. Also, that's the demo build, so the final game might hit 720p.

If it doesn't, no problem. I really enjoyed the demo with the adjustment to the collectibles logic, the Schnuffelchen search and the sidequest that gives a pop-up message to exit the level immediately upon completion. Two side objectives that stretch the game's length and have good implementation.

720P = 1280x720 = 921,600 pixels.
675P = 1152x675 = 777,600 pixels.

That is a reduction of 18.5%. You are correct in that you aren't likely to perceive much of a difference.
However... It also drops down farther than that... Down to 1024x576.

1024x576 = 589,824 pixels... Or a drop of 56.25%

That kind of resolution will look absolutely terrible on a 65" 3840x2160 display, no doubt about it.

In saying that though... Portable:
704x396 = 278,784 = 230% difference from 720P.
880x495 = 435,600 = 111% difference 720P.

PAL DVD is 720x576... So at times the Portable resolution is dropping even below that.

But... That's just resolution, there is more that makes up a scene than just the number of pixels... Game still looks charming either way.

I would notice... But I am a PC gamer and an enthusiast and all that.
For the vast majority, they probably don't really care.

I mean... The Wii sold bonkers during the HD era.
