Climax Dev On Xbox Scorpio vs PS4 PRO

4.4
The console war this generation has been more marked by the technical aspects of gaming than in any generation before. Previous generations often saw people arguing over games– I mean, yes, the technological aspects were still argued (’16-bits’, ‘blast processing’, ‘Mode-7′, ’64 bits’, ‘CD-ROMs’, ‘The Cell’), but that was always second fiddle to the argument about games.

And yet, this generation, probably because the PS4 and Xbox One share most of their lineup, it looks like the discussion is no longer about the games, but about the dots and lines each system can output to the screen. That’s not about to change either, given the release of the PS4 Pro and the impending release of the Xbox Scorpio.

What do game developers think of this relentless march towards an emphasis on the technology of gaming? When we got a chance to speak to Jamie Fisher of Climax Studios, the folks behind the Surf World Series, we asked him that question.

“Games as a medium are tied to the technology they run on in a way that, I’d argue, no other medium really is,” Fisher said. “So that progress towards more powerful platforms is always exciting; in that it moves the medium forward. On the competition between platform holders. I think it’s a net positive for everyone. Developers have more resources to play with and players have a vibrant, competitive landscape to choose from.”


Thoughts on his comments? Let us know your thoughts below and stay tuned for our full interview with Jamie in the coming days.

Ilcamorrista 4K can't be seen by human eye but it is of course 11=% better by 1080p but when your seeing 4K your seeing the closet your eye can function.


That's just not true at all. 4k is 4 times the resolution of 1080p, there is a significant difference between the two. The bigger the display, the more you can see the difference. I sell TV's for a living and can clearly see a difference between a 40" 4k and a 40" 1080p. To say 4K can't be seen by the human eye is saying everyone sees exactly the same. What the human eye is focusing on at any given time is actually over 8k resolution.


Yeah you can see the difference and it is worth the money.

Skates I think the whole console war crap is so silly. I have a Xbox One for Halo because it was my first fps game and I've been in love since day 1 and I'll probably never not love it. And I have a Ps4 for the sick exclusive games they offer. Trying to brag that the console you own is better than the other is so sad.


the console war is silly. its all the same just different names
