The Destiny beta is already underway on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3. The Xbox One version? That kicks of July 23. If you happen to insanely sharp vision you might notice the game is running on a slightly lower resolution on the Xbox One — 900p to the PS4’s 1080p. But that discrepancy won’t exist in the final version.
Via IGN, Bungie has just released video footage of the game running at 1080p on the Xbox One. Apparently the beta had to go out at 900p for reasons but, back at the Bungie ranch, the game is already running at full resolution. That’s good news for folks who want to pick up the game on Microsoft’s big ol’ box.
When it comes to PS4 vs Xbox One, some people like to say that resolution isn’t that important. I agree and I disagree. I agree because yes, it is almost impossible to tell the difference between versions and yes it will most likely not impact your time with the game at all.
But at the same time, if I’m spending my hard-earned money on a game and a console, I do want the best version of that game, even if the differences are imperceptible. I know that’s silly, I freely admit that, but that’s just the way I am with video games. It’s the reason why I spent most of last gen on the Xbox 360 and — so far — most of my current gen gaming on the PS4.
