So I've been hearing many things around the internet but can't get a definite answer. Does this game run at 60FPS at 720p or 1080p?
60FPS in 720p or 1080p?
All Xbox 360 games are in 720p, and are just upscaled on 1080p televisions.
I'm pretty sure there are a handful of 1080p games. I think NBA Homecourt and a Tennis game were, as well as a few others. There are also many games that aren't even 720p. There was a lot of commotion when Halo 3 came out because it was something like 640p.
Why do you make a thread here and get a good answer and later on ask the exact same question on the official Forza forums? The resolution doesn't affect the game's framerate because of the native resolution which is around 720p. Choosing 1080p only upscales the image to a 1920x1080 resolution in a native 1280x720p resolution which will not affect the overall framerate. You will have a good 60 frames per second image on both 720p and 1080p.
Games run natively at 720p and the Xbox then upscales them to 1080p if you have it set to output at that resolution. I want to say there have been a handful of cases a few years back where games run at 720p performed better than on a 1080p TV. I could just be imagining it though.
