    [DEBUNKED] The Amazing Spider-Man 2 to run at a lowly 720p on PS4

    The Amazing Spider-Man 2 – the accompanying game release to the filmic namesake – will run at a lowly 720p on PS4, according to the game’s listing on Sony’s Entertainment Network.

    Rumours have been rife as to the problematic development process of the game, with the Xbox One version being delayed indefinitely earlier this week. And now the news has broke that the game will run at 720p on Sony’s machine – a testament no doubt to the development issues that have plagued the game since its announcement.


    Many may – perhaps rightly – point the finger of blame at the pressure developers may be under to complete the game in time for its movie tie-in release date, leaving a finished product that could be both underwhelming and not up to scratch.

    That said, despite its resolution, we’ve little idea how the game plays as of yet, although the signs are a little discouraging. Still, stay tuned for our full review – coming soon.

    Give us your thoughts on the game and the news below.

    In my mind, just another crappy movie tie-in game.

    This can't be right... check comment 10 at this blog post: http://blog.us.playstation.com/2014/...o-walkthrough/

    But still, games based on movies are the worst... (except for GoldenEye 007).

    It so depressing how little effort is put into these movie tie in titles. Do these devs have no pride in their work?

    Guess I'm not buying this game.

    I was so they lost a sale. And it's not b/c I need 1080p...but b/c I feel the devs are either lazy or that they are just pushing the release.....either way...not good in my book.

    So...they lost a sale. Just one...shouldn't hurt them.

    that would make sense, bumping up the res should be the easiest part of development.

    I guess you didnt read my post right above yours. You know, the one where I said that the developer already confirmed 1080p 30fps on PS4? lol

    You act as if I'm an idiot for not reading every post in a thread that I didn't really care too much about in the first place. Maybe this shouldn't have even been posted....maybe everyone shouldn't jump to posting such things until it's confirmed.

    How I'm the odd one out in this is $#@!ing beyond me.

    Ok, great....looked at the release date for Watchdogs and Wolfenstein and decided I want those instead.

    We good?

    That's what I was thinking.

    I think I'm still in Xbox forum mode. I spent some time there today and argued when ppl were saying stuff like "the PS4 has no games" and such.

    Got attacked by like seven ppl. I think I'm still in defense mode.

    Debunked by Activision developer Beenox:

    http://www.cinemablend.com/games/Ama...One-63528.html
    Amazing Spider-Man 2 Is 1080p, 30fps On PS4 And Xbox One

    The game runs at 1080p 30fps on both the PS4 and the Xbox One.
    What is more interesting about this particular rumor mongering is that it originated with a "parity clause" in the contract, requiring 720p for the PS4 to be followed by a 1080p patch later.

    This smacks of Activision tactics. We now have evidence that "resolution parity" clauses exist in contracts. It is easy to see the purpose. The publisher does not want obviously different quality game screens to be showing up before sales. This is really terrible for the gamer. It means the publisher can direct the dev to develop for the least powerful platform as the baseline, essentially gimping those platforms that have more power. We all suspected this was going on in the industry and now, there it is, in a contract.

    Fudge the parity clause ****, *******s.
    If it's true they can keep it.

    I read one about indie titles a while back. I'll search and link if anyone wants it.

    That's MS for you though. If you can't invent it buy it, if you can't do it just hold the other guy back, if you don't get good reviews than buy them, and pay people to go in forums (reddit) and bash the competition while singing MS gospel. None of that is good for the industry.

    I guess once again the best gaming experience for the PS4 will be exclusives.

    Updated thread title. Thanks.
