We’d like to clear some stuff up with our last post!
We are all aware that game devs use the best version to show trailers, that’s okay. They are trying to sell a game that’s on many platforms. This is very common. Our post was about an actual platform dev not a game dev. Making a lot of arguments a little off.
The article was pointing out that Microsoft was taking actual footage from a PC version of a game (That they don’t own) and made it look like it’s footage from a console. Sure, they own Windows but that would be like taking PS4 graphics and trying to sell a PS3 game with it!
We are also aware that other companies have done it in the past! We try to point it out when we see it. We’re not taking one side over the other, we want you all to know all of the facts before you spend your hard earned money.
Another thing a lot of people are pointing out is the devkits. Things like “All games play on PC before the console is out.” That is true but the devkits “emulate” the console. Meaning if a console is only capable of 720p, the devkit on the PC will only play it at 720p.
Again, we are not trying to say “PC Master race” or hate on the Xbox One. They both have their pros and cons! We’re sorry for any confusion!
