Forums - Gaming Discussion - Microsoft seems to be forcing developers to downgrade the ps4 visuals to match xbox one games through parity clause.

I am not surpise if Mircosoft forces this on all games. They could flat out deny games being released on their platform if the PS4 versions performs better so developers will have no choice ,but to cave in. Thoughts?

Looking at the recent sales figures, they shouldnt be giving demands to any developer...

More Microsoft hate?

They've said there aiming for parity. Aiming would imply trying to improve one side to match the other. It also says they want parity across ALL platforms. That includes PC, 360, PS3 and if previous CODs are anything to go by maybe even the Wii U. Unless all of those are holding the game back as well?

So this conversation again? How many times does it have to be said that parity clause has absolutely nothing to do with performance. It applies to content. Doesn't even apply to AAA games this gen.

But third party games on xbox one sell on par with the ps4 third party games. No third party developer wants to lose potental millions of dollars in profit.

MS, after a fantastic E3, you are beginning to disappoint me again. :(

Funny, I didn't see the MS requiring parity in graphics thing anywhere in the linked article... Yet here it is, in the title as well as the first post itself. Mind you, I didn't read the linked article as well as I should've but all I noticed was some speculation about whether this could be becoming a trend. Correct me if the original article did say something about MS though.

At the end of the article.  

TL;DR: The early first gen releases for the Xbox One and PS4 showed that the PS4 could handle higher frame-rates or resolutions in multiplatform games. If forced parity starts coming into play, then it may lose those advantages.

 

I'm pretty sure that this is all theory.  



I want my time back. Seriously, I was hoping for more than just speculation when I clicked those links... not more of the same drivel.

Let me know when some concrete evidence of this shows up because at this point it's all speculation.
