Modern Warfare 2 will be in Sub-HD


Infinity Ward sends word that Modern Warfare 2 is going to tout a 600p resolution just like its predecessor.

Quote:
Infinity Ward once again justifies a sub-HD video game during a high definition console era with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.

The resolution, which is 1024 by 600 pixels, has been confirmed by the pixel counters on the Beyond3D technical forums, who recently brought us the resolution of Ghostbusters: The Video Game on the PlayStation 3.

If you don't know if CoD2 has a PC version, I submit that you probably were not going to buy it in any circumstance.

Personally I don't mind the sub-HD. It would've been nice, to be sure, but not required. I'd much rather keep the framerate smooth during play. Judging by the gameplay videos floating around, this will still be my "must buy" game of the year.

This surprises me, Call of Duty 4 and WoW ran extremely well on PC, better than other games that had 720p on the 360.

I guess it's all about the engine optimizations. I'll still be picking this up on PC, where i expect my framerate to be in the hundreds again.

CoD2 and MW2 use the same engine or something? Didn't really follow either of these, that's why i'm asking.

As a PC gamer when's the last time you played a game at anywhere close to 600 horizontal resolution? Welcome to the era of HD gaming, consoles.

Althought, I'm still glad lots of games get ported to the PC so I can enjoy them in high resolution, the way God intended.

Whatever, as long as it looks good and plays well. Halo and Bioshock both did this so that they could get more things happening on the screen at once and the results were excellent.

Hopefully IW hasn't bowed to pressure from Activision to "just port it over from the consoles and that's it" and the PC version is still of the same quality one would expect from past IW releases.

I'll wait till player reviews hit for the PC version. The only CoD's i've bought have been IW's and only for the single player. Personally, I think the multiplayer sucks. Too much nade spam, spawn raping, team stacking and hacking for my taste. Great for "twitch kiddies" I guess. /shrug

HD would have been nice. Oh well. CoD4 was great because of the gameplay; the graphics were adequate.

God forbid you get smooth gameplay.

Regardless, game still looks awesome.

Sharper blurry textures? Sounds cool.

Textures are not too bad in current gen console titles it's the aliasing that really bugs me. Higher resolutions allow for a kind of automatic anti-aliasing.

As for the other comments, I'm sure the gameplay will be great no matter what you play it on. On the PC I won't have to stop and think "This could have looked better".

On the other hand consoles tend to get DLC that usually doesn't get released for the PC version, or much later in a free update.

OMG! There is absolutely no way I will play a game that shorts me on pixels. Fucking cheap bastards. Step up and put all the pixels in there, ActiPixelNazis!

I'm on the 'this is a crock of shit' side of things.

New releases should be in HD just like they should allow me to use analog sticks rather than d-pads. Things move on and my expectations change.
