Sony Being Sued Over Lack Of 1080p Resolution In Games

Sony is no stranger to being sued, the PS3’s history is lined with law suits against the company over things they have been done or been responsible for and it looks like the PS4 will have the same type of court cases, this one over claims that Killzone was supposed to be 1080p, when it wasn’t, here is a quote from part of the court case:

2. According to Sony, Killzone was a graphically striking game set in a dystopian future that took full advantage of the PS4’s advanced processing power. Sony claimed that the PS4 was so powerful that its featured Killzone video game could display “1080p” multiplayer graphics, a crowning achievement in the video game industry.

3. However, after the game’s release, gamers quickly noticed and complained that Killzone’s multiplayer graphics were blurry to the point of distraction. The cause of this blurriness went unknown until a well-respected video game website reported that Killzone’s multiplayer did not actually provide “1080p” graphics as advertised.

4. Following this discovery, Sony released an official statement on the matter. In it, Sony admitted that it did not in fact design Killzone to display multiplayer graphics in 1080p, but instead used a technological shortcut that was supposed to provide “subjectively similar” results.
