Original: In a trend that’s unfortunately picking up a little more steam, BioWare has revealed, via a Livestream, that its upcoming action-adventure title Dragon Age: Inquisition will be running at 900p/30fps on both PS4 and Xbox One.
Following on from the much-condemned news that Assassin’s Creed Unity would be running at 900p/30fps on both consoles for the sake of avoiding ‘’all the debates and stuff’’, the maligned news of Dragon Age: Inquisition’s resolution came about during a Q&A session with the game’s developers.
Ubisoft’s move with Assassin’s Creed Unity ignited a fierce rebuttal from the majority of PS4 gamers, who have since taken to twitter with the hashtag ‘’PS4NoParity’’ to display their objections to what they feel is a downgrade in quality to multiplatform titles on PS4, in favour of achieving comparative ability with that of Microsoft’s Xbox One.
We’ve asked our Twitter followers what they think of the news, and here are some responses – bearing in mind there’s a certain trend to all of them, unsurprisingly.
@PSUdotcom Shameful, absolutely shameful. Give the Gamers 1 good reason why that’s acceptable. That’s right, they cannot. #PS4NoParity

@PSUdotcom Ridiculous. Why is one group denied the full experience of a game just because the other side is sub-par? Yes I mad. #PS4NoParity
