Haze Not In HD

Illustration for article titled Haze Not In HD

While the PlayStation.com blog says that Haze runs at 720p, the game's creative lead Derek Littlewood begs to differ, saying the game runs at 576p, letting the PS3 upscale the game. Says Littlewood:

We prioritise a nice smooth framerate over a different res. 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.

When Derek Littlewood is right, Derek Littlewood is right. There are more important things, like whether or not a game is any good or whether your pre-order should be canceled.

Lots of games are doing this sort of thing now, and the fact is, it makes very little difference to the player. You might notice it if you're sitting 2 feet from the screen and deliberately trying to measure the resolution, but if you care that much about whether it's "True 720p" or not, you probably need to rethink your priorities.

I wish news sites/blogs would stop reporting this kind of thing as if it were some kind of crime against gamers. It's just a barely noticeable trick that gives us some more frames per second. Big deal.
