Quantum Break framerate debate? Xbox boss says ‘try before you judge’

Quantum Break has been the source of internet controversy after an early report into the game discovered it runs at native 720p resolution.

A test from Digital Foundry discovered the game natively ran at 720p, except for certain HUD elements and game menus.

“Curiously, the paper also states Xbox One’s final output is 1920×1080, and that’s where there is some confusion – as we’ve yet to see evidence of full HD 1080p gameplay in close analysis – barring the title’s HUD elements and menus,” the Digital Foundry report reads.

“In every scene tested so far, a native resolution of 720p is the consistent result found in each pixel count test – so while there’s every possibility of individual render targets operating at higher resolutions, basic geometry that we’re able to measure hands in a 720p result as things stand.”

Xbox boss Phil Spencer received some questions regarding the game’s resolution via Twitter, and responded encouraging fans to try it before judging what determines whether Quantum Break is good or bad:

Quantum Break launches on April 5 on Xbox One and Windows 10, so it won’t be long before we’ll get to see everybody’s judgements regarding how the framerate affects the overall experience.
