Destiny Beta on Xbox One Won't Be 1080p; Full HD Resolution Confirmed for Launch

If you’re eager to see Destiny running in 1080p on your Xbox One, you may have to wait a little longer. During a livestream on IGN the game’s community manager explained that the beta on Microsoft’s new console will not reach the full HD goal.

Luckily it was also confirmed that the game will indeed run at 1080p at launch, probably thanks to the use of the hardware resources previously dedicated  to Kinect and now free to be exploited by developers after Microsoft unlocked them about a month ago.

Of course it isn’t much of a problem, as it’s just a beta, and its purpose is mostly to test gameplay, not graphics.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
