The max performance of the Tomb Raider Definitive Edition has been a hot topic of conversation among gamers.

There have been plenty of rumors but now we've got a clarification from executive producer Scot Amos, who said the PlayStation 4 version will run at a higher resolution than the Xbox One version.

We learned this during a recent GamesRadar Livestream , in which Amos addressed the subject. After being asked if the game would be locked at 60FPS for both versions, he replied:

"Uh, no, you’re seeing it right here. So, there definitely… One of the things that people had asked, they had heard various quotes – actually heard some misquotes – but our goal from the beginning was always to be 1080p gameplay at 30 frames per second minimum.

Some people have taken that and misconstrued like, ‘Oh, it’s locked to 30!’ Actually, no…from the beginning, our absolute requirement was gameplay at 1080p and minimum 30 frames per second. And anything past that was gravy. That’s the kind of game we are, the kind of world we are, and as you’re sitting here looking at it, like we said on the PS4, this is running at 60."

He added that the Xbox One iteration isn't locked at 30, either, although some sources have claimed that it will run at 30FPS with 1080p resolution. Amos said it will indeed sit "around 30FPS" and the PS4 version "will attempt to hit 60FPS as often as possible." So, there you have it.

I guess those hair physics are a bit too much for that Radeon 7670M the One sports.

1080p appears to be too much for the xbone.

Consider that the Xbone is having trouble with a last gen port.

Imagine it having to deal with cross-platform games being specifically made for next-gen platforms.

The great thing is that its unlikely that 3rd party devs are going to use the Xbone as the lead platform this time around. The PS4 is going to be the lead platform to develop for. The Xbone would have to get versions that might play on the Wii U ūüėČ

Anyone else predicting something like this: "Backwards compatible (to xbone) xbox 1.5 hitting shelves in holiday 2015."?? Or "xbone now $299."?

I'm sure there'll be a ton of "see, it's not really that much better" articles when these games release, but man. Really, there's no hope.

Stay Classy PSX…

This is 2 months after the new consoles released. Imagine what it will be like after games have grown much larger and more complex a few years from now.

Good to hear, I'm looking forward to digging into this game on my PS4. I need something other than Shadow Fall and Tomb Raider is gonna look incredible with all those updates.

I'm a little bummed they changed Lara but I'll just try to enjoy the remodel version with an open mind.

So did you get a PS4 already? Or did you plan on getting it and playing the game on the console?

I've been out of luck so far. I have the money, but it's so hard, darn it.

Yeah I got one the second time they became available, the only way to snag one for sure is to sign up somewhere to get texts when it's available then jump on the internet that very second and order yours. I signed up at Amazon and ended up buying at Amazon, but CheapAssGamer texted me about an amazon availability even before Amazon could notify me by email.

I'm gonna have to give that a try. Thanks.

You're right though, that we'd have to get there in seconds. 2 days ago I had a lot of fail attempts. There were several surges of 6-12 left in stock, in which was literally gone the next time I refreshed the page. Only difference was I had my friend texting me, instead of some other site notifying in advance as you did.

Have you seen the gameplay trailer with the new Lara? Because like many people I didn't like the look of the new Lara when I saw it in a screenshot side by side, but having seen actual gamely side by side I like the new Lara a lot more.

PS4: The home of the multiplats AND the exclusives.

Now THIS is the console I always wanted.

Don't be surprised if MS starts "paying" developers to make multi-platforms as identical as possible once it starts to get real bad.

So, how much longer until Xbox One starts to get doom and gloom articles everywhere?

They pay to keep em off the internet.

In other news I seen a TV ad for the Xbox one (a newer one) that is basically the same as their launch commercial that's always on but they had quotes from various sources including random people on twitter. I seen that and thought really? What relevance does that person have? And of course the quote was along the lines of the Xbox one being the greatest thing to happen to earth.

I must admit though I really like the Xbox one commercial with the catchy "come on" tune. I think it's great.

I miss the days when Gamespot was a respectable place to visit. It has gone downhill since Gerstmann-gate. It's just a minutely more tolerable version of IGN now. They seem more interested in talking about Eddie Makuch than the actual story…which makes sense I guess.

Damn it's sad the differences are already there with a port of a past gen game.
