E3 2009: Forza 3 Runs At 1080p/60fps – Oh Wait, No It Doesn't, Does It?

1 min read


There are currently two stories floating around the internet at the moment about Forza 3, and it seems like one of them is false.

It was reported that the newly announced Forza 3 is running at 1080p at a smooth 60 frames per second, but after a video that shows a quick interview with one of the developers, it seems that the story may not be entirely true.

So what’s the real deal with Forza 3?

Some dude from Xbox Evolved had a quick moment to speak with one of the guys at the Forza 3 stand, and so he asked what the native resolution of Forza 3 was, to which the guy replied, 720p.

What this means, is that the game will run at 1080p/60fps, but the resolution will be upscaled from 720p. In other words, not true 1080p. The truth is, the whole 720p/1080p argument is a little silly, because unless you are running a 50″ LCD TV or bigger, you shouldn’t really even notice the difference. It only comes down to the details, so for those of you interested in just that, it’s 720p native.

Either way, it’s looking gorgeous and running at 60fps, so nothing wrong there, but GT5 fans out there can breathe a sigh of relief, if necessary.

Here’s the proof:
