[bit-tech] Haze not in HD, needs 4GB install

post #1 of 18

Derek Littlewood, one of the main men behind Free Radical Design's PS3 shooter Haze, has revealed that the game will not run in true HD because of a deliberate choice on the part of the development team.

"We prioritise a nice smooth frame-rate over a different resolution," Littlewood told Ripten.

"Personally, I don't really buy the whole thing. People did the same with Call of Duty, they did the same with Halo, and they say with those games 'It's not running at true HD!' And it's like, 'I don't care.' If the game looks good and it runs smoothly, those are the important things to me."

Littlewood then confirmed that the game will run at a resolution of 576p, not 720p, and that the PlayStation 3 will thus have to upscale the image.

Ubisoft meanwhile has confirmed that Haze will have a minimal install requirement of 4GB, though not the whole game is installed on the disc.

The oft-delayed and hugely anticipated Haze is out later this week as a PS3 exclusive. If you are twiddling your thumbs until release then why not check out our recent guest column by Haze's screenwriter Rob Yescombe, titled Dear TV: Get Your Act Together?

Haze, CoD, and Halo can't run smoothly unless they run it at 576p (1024x576)? Lol, too bad you can't upgrade the console.....

The fact that the life span of a console is defined by (more or less) how long it takes to make a return on the R&D of the console through software sales, is the key reason why consoles are not better than PC's.

Added to this the fact that you cannot upgrade the consoles is just a part of life, but makes it easier for the dev's to make games to fit within a tighter threshold of optimization. I hope most of you remember why the 360 shipped with 512mb or ram instead of the planned 256mb... It was because of Gears of war. The dev team showed whoever was in charge of over turning the final hardware decisions that the game ran and looked so much better with a slight hardware improvement. To bad they couldn't convince them that the console needed 1gb.

I think consoles are a dieing breed. They are almost as a decent computer, and a few years into its life span, you can buy a out preforming PC for about the same funds. What happened to the $150 xbox, that had a built in hdd?? MS thinks this current generations console is more valuable? With all the SKU's of the 360, and unability to upgrade anything, criplpes the whole console idea.

The only thing the PS3 has going is that the hdd is user upgradeable. With the xbox, MS makes you pay $180 for a $50 hdd.... what a joke.

they're really not doing themselves any favours. its hard enough to make it in the huge pile of FPS games on the market these days and I really dont think Haze will make that big an impact if atall on the industry.

Halo runs at 640P because bungie wanted to use 2 lightmaps, a decision some people don't understand. Most games run at at least 720P natively.
