Source? The most recent Steam hardware survey shows 1080p as the most common resolution by a pretty large margin (62%).What if I told you that 720p was the most common gaming resolution for PC gamers according to Steam stats with 900p being second. Both of those resolutions combined make up the vast majority of current Steam users gaming resolution.
Less than 15% play at 1440p and less than 5% play at 4k.
They prioritize the actual game playing over visual nonsense. They're doing it as its supposed to be. Framerate trumps every single other aspect
That’s not the point. Base console owners should have a choice on what way they want to play the game. Sorry if I didn’t make myself more clear.
4k native isn't it exactly the more used resolution on the X by the way.
Doom isn't open world.
You want a 600p/60fps ootion?
Exactly. You lose either way it seems. Give me any shooter at 60fps if I have to choose.
Framerate impacts the way game are played and how they respond. Having that as the number one priority doesnt sound like a preference to me. Resolution higher or lower is in fact preference, as it does nothing for the actual gameplay of a game
You have a good pc and you are buying X1X games? Single player ones?1080p? Is this a joke? Offering no options is no fun at all. I was expecting 4k30/1080p60, at the very least.
I may cancel this and buy it on pc, my rig can likely run the game flawlessly anyway... but that’s a massive shame.
Edit: of course the biggest worry I have about this is control. This isn’t id software, it’s not their engine. I’m used to id software games being perfect control wise with zero input lag or delay. I’m worried this won’t be.
It is preferance when you're sacrificing resolution. I think it's not worth it. I'd rather play at higher res instead. It's a single player game. Don't tell me what I should prefer.
I really don’t understand this mentality at all, I mean if the game reviews well and plays good is resolution really a limiting factor for people ? I have a powerful pc and both enhanced consoles, a switch too! But I never see resolution as a reason not to buy a game. Some of my greatest games of all time are nintendo games which don’t set the world alight on graphics or resolution but the gameplay is fantastic. The mindset (to me anyways) around something having to conform to x resolution or x FPS (but 60fps is welcome) is just weird to me. Surely gameplay triumphs over these factors.
Yeah I buy console games, why not? I buy both. I don’t limit myself to one format. Sometimes I love to sit at a computer desk and play proper, sometimes I like to just sit in front of the tv with a controller and no fuss, knowing I can pick my game up on the Xbox upstairs any time I want to.You have a good pc and you are buying X1X games? Single player ones?
It does not use idtech and has very different design goals that are presumably quite a bit heavier than Doom 2016 - I am not surprised by its performance. In fact, I imagine it will drop from 60 fps due to CPU at times. Open world and all that.

Perhaps not, I just let gameplay do the talking over Rez/FPS a good game is a good game. I guess I’ll leave this enigma to the recess of my mind.Maybe it's not meant for you to understand...
Just as someone who thinks resolution can't be a dealbreaker for someone else as much as framerate would be a dealbreaker for them isn't meant for me to understand. There's literally nothing weird about not wanting to play a game in 1080p, ESPECIALLY for those of us who already have a home full of 4k televisions...
At least on base consoles. Exactly my thoughts.
Also, the Steam surveys doesn't distinguish between game's res and desktop res, IIRC. I have a 1080p monitor but often play at 4k nonetheless. Sometimes I also switch to my 4k TV. I don't think Steam's surveys take that into consideration. And I think there are many people who use DSR for +1080p rendering; let alone ingame resolution scale sliders in some games.
That's not the same thing. The Base Xbox One is not going to run in the same solar system as 60fps, so they've capped it at 30fps, and it will dip constantly. What was the last 60fps FPS title that you played with an option to voluntary halve the framerate, significantly increase input latency, and so on? FPS developers are obsessed with trying to reduce input latency as much as possible. Basically nobody wants to release 30fps FPS titles, but sometimes they have to because consoles are kinda underpowered. Developers are motivated to add 30fps caps is to prevent uneven frame times on hardware that doesn't come close to 60fps. Doom 2016 runs at 60fps. So does Wolfenstein. It doesn't have a 30fps mode for the "input latency is awesome" demographic. It's never been a consideration in the FPS genre because of how paramount input responsiveness is. The Switch versions of those games run at 30fps because they have no choice.
