God of War III is not 1080p native, variable frame rate
If you have seen the screenshots and read the impressions from yesterday, you will know that God of War III is a visually pleasing game.
Sadly it won’t be quite up to the highest of definitions. Jeff Rubinstein from the US PlayStation Blog has announced that the game will now run natively at 720p instead of 1080p, but with the option to upscale.
This is a shame because Sony regularly talked about the game running natively at 1080p.
For most people though this should not be too much of a problem, but it is still a shame that this goal could not be met.
Whether the power of the PS3 is to blame, or the lack of extra development time that was needed is unknown, but we’ll probably never know.
Jeff also told us that the game will not run on a fixed frame rate, but it will vary between 30 and 60 frames per second which is still good.
Additionally, we were told to expect regular news content on this big game from now until release – excellent!
No release date has been confirmed for God of War III yet, but it is most likely to arrive in March like all previous games in the trilogy.
