Nothing gets the internet all in a buzz on a slow news day like the continuing Microsoft muckrake that is “Resolutiongate.” Referring to the difference in native resolutions of games on the Xbox One vs. PlayStation 4.
The latest rumor-victim is Titanfall. Rumors have been flying about the game's final resolution, so-called trusted sources have come out on both sides alternately claiming the game will run at 720p or 1080p. This is partly in response to the strange 792p of the beta test of Valentine's Day weekend.
But developer Respawn Entertainment's co-founder went on the Twitter record to shoot down the 1080p claims.

Respawn producer Drew McCoy also commented on the resolution flair up: “I don't know how many times it can be stated clearly and officially”... “those claims are false, have been false, and will continue to be false,” he responded in a NeoGAF post.
So all gamers do know is that Titanfall is crazy fun and getting your hands on it is going to be a hell of a good day. Then if you really must you can put it up on your projector and stand really close to the screen and complain about resolution, no judgment here.
Titanfall drops exclusively for Xbox One and Windows PC on March 11. An Xbox 360 version follows later in the month.
