Project Cars Aiming For 1080p/60 FPS on Xbox One and PS4 - News

gamrFeed - Mon, 09/29/2014 - 20:19

Speaking with Eurogamer, Slightly Mad Studios' Andy Tudor has stated that the developer is aiming to hit 1080p and 60 FPS for Project Cars on both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, although the Xbox One version isn't quite there just yet:

"On Xbox One it's not quite 1080p at the moment, but it's not representative of the final quality. We're still aiming to get there."

Unfortunately the Wii U version, which is still being worked on despite the release date being pushed back, likely won't hit the 1080p/60 FPS benchmark, Eurogamer report.

Retail Source: Xbox One Sales Top PS4 in UK Due to Price Cut and FIFA 15 Bundle

gamrFeed - Mon, 09/29/2014 - 19:11

Sales for the Xbox One beat out the PlayStation 4 last week in the UK. This is according to an anonymous retail source who spoke with MCVUK. The increase in sales was due to the FIFA 15 bundle, which was only available for the Xbox One, as well as as price cut to £329.

The source stated that Xbox One sales jumped 155 percent week-on-week, while PlayStation 4 sales increased 80 percent. However, Xbox One sales were only slightly ahead of the PlayStation 4.

It was also reported earlier today that FIFA 15 sold more copies on the PlayStation 4 than the Xbox One, despite the exclusive bundle.
