Titanfall Xbox 360 ‘runs at 30fps, sub-720p’

Titanfall

According to insider Pete Dodd, the Xbox 360 port of Titanfall will be “more akin to how Battlefield 4 was ported to last-gen consoles.” Dodd, who previously revealed that an Xbox 360 version was on the way from Bluepoint Games and not Respawn Entertainment, explained that efforts now were more focused on upping the frame-rate, with the HD factor being less of a priority.

In other words, it’s going to look like my laptop version of the game. Minus a few pixels of course. "Lack of news about the 360 version of Titanfall isn’t all about pushing the XB1," Dodd said on twitter account (via VideoGamer) Dodd Scientifics. "The 360 version is 30fps and sub-720p." Respawn engineer Richard Baker still mentioned this a couple of weeks ago to Digital Foundry, when quizzed on the Xbox 360 progress:

Bluepoint’s developing [the Xbox 360 version] and we’ve mostly been hands-off, letting them make their own technical decisions,". It seems pretty close [in terms of] feature parity and they’re still working on getting the frame-rate up. I’m not sure about the resolution…

Ouch. We’ve yet to even see the Xbox 360 version running, with the game most likely entering a last minute crunch in order to get up to speed. Obviously, Titanfall was never going to match the new-gen visuals of the Xbox One version, with that hardware struggling in certain matches to render some Titan-heavy visuals.

And gamers don’t mind that, really they don’t. A blurry texture here, a missed shadow there means nothing when compared to a consistent frame-rate. But if my un-optimised laptop can pull an easy 30fps from the recent beta, then I expect the Xbox 360 to surpass that and provide some current-gen thrills, before Microsoft shifts more of its focus onto the Xbox One.

Hell, I was one of many that had a pre-order for the game up and running, before that all went to hell. But that ain’t happening either. Maybe they should cancel the game on Xbox 360 entirely if it doesn’t run up to spec.

Titanfall launches on Xbox 360 on March 28. Except for here. Standby for sad face.

Because he's the writer that Lazygamer deserves, but not the one it actually needs right now. So we'll hunt him. Because he can't take it. Because he's not a hero. He's a loud-mouthed journalist, a watchful procrastinator. A dork knight.

    • DrKiller

      Maybe you need glasses? looks perfectly fine here :P

  • Hammersteyn

    At least the 360 doesn’t have to render the Bat Mobile

  • Devourer of Small Bunnies

    That header just gave my eyes cancer. Thank you. So. Very. Much.

  • Hammersteyn

    Now we know why they put titans in the game. At that resolution you wont be able to miss them.

    • Admiral Chief of comments

      Oh snap!

  • RinceIsIngwer

    My brain!

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      Hahahahahaha! Good one!

      • Admiral Chief of comments

        LOOOOOL

  • TiMsTeR

    So the header image requires 3D glasses I assume.

  • Nick de Bruyne

    Tons of 360/PS3 games ran at sub 720p 30fps setups, its nothing out of the ordinary even. Battlefield 3 was like that, Halo was like that, I even think some of the bigger exclusives on either side where like that here and there. While Titanfall looks really nice, it really is quite far from the best looking game you will see out there, even on my PC running it at almost max spec, so as far as Im concerned, on 360, if the gameplay is the same at the cost of visual fidelity, there’s still a hell of game sitting on that disc

    The header image is Darryn’s feeble attempt at low-cost anti-aliasing by using Vaseline on your screen.

    Since we haven’t seen the X360 version in action, one can only hope the framerates don’t also dip into the single digits with that version.

    • Tom Sawyer

      I own the xb1 version, and I have NEVER seen it dip to “single digits”. NEVER. Thats simply nonsense. It can slow very slightly, when theres a million things happening, but nowhere near single digits. Whoever told you that is a joke. Even at its absolute slowest, its still easily above 40fps, and its almost unnoticeable. Whomever told you it dipped to “single digits” was either not playing the xb1 version, had a terrible pc, or never played the game at all. Period.

  • sotiris155

    I don’t care if it’s 720p or 1080p but the 30fps cap annoys me a lot, it can even make me not to buy the game. Except from gta v :P

    Don’t Care. It runs on 360. It’s all that matters.

    LET ME GUESS YOU ARE A PLAYSTATION SUPPORTER LOL! I DIDN’T SEE YOU REPORTING THE 30 FRAMES PER SECOND ON BATTLEFIELD THREE OR YET ALONE THE OH SO IMPRESSIVE 45 FRAMES PER SECOND ON BATTLEFIELD FOUR ON PLAYSTATION FOUR. WHY IS THAT? UPSET MICROSOFT MADE A DECISION TO SUPPORT GAMERS AND NOT A COMPANY THAT HAS TRIED TO FOCUS ON TVS MEDIA PLAYERS GAME CONSOLES STEREO EQUIPMENT HEADPHONES ETC.? WHY DON’T YOU FIND SOMETHING POSITIVE TO WRITE ABOUT? IF YOU REALLY WANT TO FOCUS ON THE NEGATIVE NEWS, WHY DON’T YOU REPORT HOW STRINGER SCREWED SONY FOR THE LAST SEVEN YEARS.

    I am going to take this article as a blur just like the picture above until either Bluepoint or Respawn Entertainment confirms this rumor…
