I don't think its native 1080, eurogamer did not do their digital foundry (or) anything in the article they just mentioned 1080p 60FPS in regular way for their demo instead of stressing its running natively in their analysis. So far its been confirmed 720p/60FPS and even nintendo did not confirm properly (they would have said if its 1080p because this will give them huge bonus in marketing).

1080p will not give a big plus for a marketing amongst normal people. And the technogeeks will say that modnationracer is still better and go continue playing their CODs.

Eh...I doubt many "technogeeks" play CoD...certainly not for the tech at least.

Well, for example, COD is the highest selling PS4 game. And don't tell me that new consoles is bought by casuals in big amounts during its first year. 

Also on the article, I don't see 1080p confirmed there. And also, even if it will be 720p with AA and 60 fps - it will be good enough until its still a funny arcade racer with a Nintendo quality.

Wii U considered underpowered to PS4/Xbox one which are stil failing to do 1080/60FPS in many games. If they market this as 1080/60FPS game then lots of consumers get the impression of Wii U having good hardware for 1080p gaming as next gen hardware atleast.



GAMING is not about spending hours to pass/waste our time just for fun,

its a Feeling/Experience about a VIRTUAL WORLD we can never be in real, and realizing some of our dreams (also creating new ones).

So, Feel Emotions, Experience Adventure/Action, Challenge Game, Solve puzzles and Have fun.

PlayStation is about all-round "New experiences" using new IP's to provide great diversity for everyone.

Xbox is always about Online and Shooting.

Nintendo is always about Fun games and milking IP's.

I doubt "technogeeks" would be playing on PS4 either



But I bet it will have online framrate issues, I know from experience with LBP karting, nothing too serious and definitely playable.



...Let the Sony Domination continue with the PS4...

I doubt it. My magical eyes say that it's 720p ;)

Nintendo already confirmed that months ago.



I'm sure that piece of news just hurt some agendas.

I am pretty happy with it though.



Will the best Mario Kart, i'm sure. B)

So couldn't you say the technogeeks play Mario as well? Since that's what most of the early WiiU owners bought? Or are technogeeks only on PS4 or something? Most "technogeeks" would be on PC, tbh, unless your understanding of that word is different from mine.

Well, the thread title says "confirms". Eurogamer has nothing to do with it. They're only repeating what Nintendo said.



I'm officially impressed. Good job Ninty.
