I doubt it's for framerate, multi-plats usually have to be a bit lower on resolution. Ratchet and Clank ran at a very brisk 60FPS, 720p, AND had higher textures with more things processed at a time on screen :/ Multi-plats will always be inferior :(

You have a good point there. More likely they are playing it safe by running the game in 640p with consoles instead of 720p. I have no doubt DMC4 could run 720p with 60 fps on both system yet it probably have taken a little more time and money to get in run good on both consoles.



Around the Network

I think what has happened is that graphicly both systems have reached their climax. If you think about it the technogy for both systems is 3 plus years old. In electronics that might as well be 100 years. Don't get me wrong. The posibilities with these systems are amazing, but people shouldn't expect their capabilities to expand any further. The average PC is going to start edging ahead again. I can't wait for next gen stuff.



There are already games looks as good or better than DMC4 on both systems running in 720p.

 Just notice the update that it may still be running in 720p.

Well first off, neither console is nearing it's "climax" they both have PLENTY of headroom, (at leastI know the PS3 does), hell the Cell processor by itself is sadly superior to a HUGE majority of PC processors.

Second off, there already are games that run better than DMC >_> it's just a problem with multi-plat, I know for a FACT that there are PS3 exclusives that have a much prettier resume than DMC4 and they run just fine.

Third, I hear this brought up so many times about PC resolutions, my problem with PC resolutions though is that I just don't care :/, my monitor could display 8million by 12 million or whatever way, but if it's only a 22" monitor, the point seems fairly moot >_>; I'd much rather have games optimize to look great on a 40-60 inch TV than a computer monitor. :/



From 0 to KICKASS in .stupid seconds.

"I think what has happened is that graphicly both systems have reached their climax. "

Cowshit. Take a look at God of War and you see what is possible when you have more time. The increase in graphical quality will be astonishing. (Although you will only notice it when playing old games because it will sneak up on you).

The stupid part is that people use one number for quality.

Framerate*Resolution

In the real world it is

Framerate*Resolution*Texture-resolution*PixelShaderlooks*Shadows*Globallighting*Locallighting*DiffuseShading*Watereffects*...........

But thats a bit complicated for a forum where people like to have an "simpler" argument.
