Official trailer targets 1080p / 60 FPS instead of 1440p, that’s why –


Tom Warren from The Verge has brought our attention to a new trailer released by Microsoft that focuses on their next-generation “smaller” console, the Xbox Series S. The video highlights the features and benefits guaranteed by the console. Among the several there is also talk of one 1080p resolution and 60 FPS, although it was previously called 1440p.

“Xbox Series S achieves around three times the GPU performance of the Xbox One and is designed to play video games at 1440p and 60 frames per second, with support for up to 120 FPS.” This is Microsoft’s statement, reported by Warren himself. The reporter then points out the change. For what is this?

Could Microsoft be “retracting” its statement? No, just this trailer was made to talk precisely about Forza Horizon 4 that on Xbox Series S does not go beyond 1080p (native resolution) and 60 FPS. In essence, Microsoft has packaged a dedicated trailer that clearly specifies the performance of this specific game, rather than simply indicating the full potential of the console. This is confirmed by Xbox Senior Marketing Manager Josh Munsee.

The trailer is mostly dedicated to the Xbox Series S though, so it’s easy for a gamer to get confused and think that the console isn’t meant to go beyond 1080p. Tom Warren himself says that this video in his eyes looks more like an advertisement for the console than the game.

Clearly, Microsoft should pay close attention to these kinds of statements because can easily cause confusion.

Continuing on the performance theme, here’s Digital Foundry’s video on Prey and Dishonored on the Xbox Series X version | S.
