Microsoft Lifts Resolution Requirment


Surprising… everyone, Microsoft has apparently decided to lift the requirement that all games must run in 720p and be anti-aliased. Black Rock Studios developer David Jeffrries (part of the team behind the awesome Pure) states that an update to its TCR (Technical Certification Requirement) form. It formerly stated that all games must run at 1280×720 when in HD mode, or 720p if that sounds less confusing.

Also, as of March, full screen anti-aliasing for all your jagged edge-eliminating needs is no longer required at all. Most famously, Halo 3 broke the resolution rule, coming in at an estimated 640p. That was back in 2007, so this may not be a recent addition (at least for Microsoft internally), but it has just been made available to the public.
