I believe PES 2015 is 720p@60fps on Xbox One because the team responsible for this version didn't put enough effort in optimising it. Not saying they did this on purpose, but perhaps they just had some trouble with it and didn't care about it enough to optimise it more and are satisfied with the results.

Similarly, Ubisoft doesn't optimise most of their games on PC, because they believe if PC gamers want to play their games on PC and don't meet the game's minimum system requirements, they can always buy new hardware in order to do so. That's Ubisoft's philosophy when it comes to optimising PC games.

So like Ubisoft, maybe Konami is happy with the results and don't want to devote more resources to improve the version of a game on a single platform to a limited customer base.

To my knowledge, outside of the Metal Gear franchise, Konami's games aren't very demanding technically-wise. Meaning they don't spend too much time pushing the hardware to its full potential, or even most of it. I believe this is Konami's philosophy on this matter.

So if with the same amount of effort, they made PES 2015 run at 1080p@60fps on PS4 and 720p@60fps on XBO, they won't care about it. That's the only logical explanation that comes to me.

PS. I know to not double-post, but didn't feel a simple edit to my other comment would suffice. If I'm wrong, please tell me and I won't do it again. And sorry for going off-topic.

Your car controlling abilities are amazing, are you using a wheel?

As regards PES2015 being 720p on the XB1, this is all down to laziness from Konami, don't really know who they think this will hurt more and who cares about PES nowadays, FIFA 2015 is a better game plus its 1080p60FPS on the XB1 and PS4.

That train race is amazing. I kinda wish I didn't see it through the ending because I didn't wanna spoil it but I couldn't get my eyes off the video. It's a gorgeous game.

Once again, great job Gamersyde!

No, X1 controller. :)

Thanks, didn't think there was much to be impressed with tbh.

Nope, its was. Lost of clean racing. Very difficult for me to pull off with a controller. ;)

I'm noticing on the bonnet of the car in the barns video that the refresh rate is atrocious. I can understand the slight chunky rendering of the reflection itself but it's updating of geometry here is bad even for last gen. It's smooth enough when it pans but for most of the frames the geometry remains the same. Game does look great though and a lot of fun so hardly a problem but wow is that bad and not what you expect from a new gen

Is......that a......barnes and noble pun? FANTASTIC!!!! :D

Kudos, you noticed it. ;)

suppose have to be grateful that its actually showing a real reflection though unlike watchdogs where all reflections in all the windows are not actually reflections at all lol

the game looks ok but its not a system seller or anything

FIFA 2015 is a better game
It really isn't.

Regardless, the irony, and contradiction is, that I'd take a shoddy PES15 port over Fifa 15 this year because it simply plays a more realistic game of football. However, it being 720 on a supposedly current gen system, whilst the other is the full shebang isn't acceptable, or excusable, regardless of who's to blame for it. It just shouldn't be happening at all. If I were an X1 owner waiting on PES, the only real good PES in a very long time, I'd be fucking pissed.

Wow. Nice vids. Don't know what it is, but these videos make it look better than before. Still don't like the trees, but the rest of the visuals are on point. And the races seem like fun.

My hands. I gotta get them on this game.
