Minecraft: Nintendo Switch Edition’s resolution could increase to 1080p while docked in the future

Posted on May 14, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch

Minecraft: Nintendo Switch Edition currently runs at 720p at all times. Even when the system is docked, the resolution doesn’t change.

After speaking with Microsoft, TIME reports that “Minecraft’s 720p docked/undocked resolution isn’t a question of system power, but stems from issues currently experienced shifting from one resolution to the other when docking/undocking.” The publication further adds: “It’s possible, albeit not confirmed, that Minecraft for Switch could hit 1080p docked down the road.”

    I’m starting to think that if anyone were to go third party at this point it would be Microsoft.

      But how will I view my sports?! WHERE WILL I GET MY DISPENSED WATER FROM

      Sony can’t go third party because in order to do that they would first have to go first party. They have no in-house game development, just small developers that they have bought up.

      • JasonBall

        Yup, and a heckton of em.

    • ibo✿✿AKA✿✿SleepyAbra༼凸 ◉_◔༽凸

      nah it will be sony

    • michael clanton

      Until you see they actually make money on games, and as a company they are only behind google in terms of money in the bank, the xbox brand pushes there goal of being in more households, and ms as a company make more in one quarter as a company then sony does all year…its a business kids.

      • JasonBall

        Lol yes they’re a big company. But remember kid, a big company can have parts that aren’t as successful as the others. Disney literally shut down their videogame development department, and they’re frikkin Disney. They also shut down Lucasarts.

          And then there’s EA, who has shut down studio’s they’ve bought up left and right, and I even hear Bioware (who is a venerated developer) isn’t doing that well either.

    Hope the hard copy adds 1080p docked <3

    • Tlink7

      You have quite the hard-on for hard copies xD

      • ibo✿✿AKA✿✿SleepyAbra༼凸 ◉_◔༽凸

        hahah

      • Roto Prime

        Ahahahahahahahahaahag!!!!!!! That I do <3

        • Tlink7

          Don’t blame you, physical games for life 😀

      • ForeVision

        We gotta be pilin dem boxes T. No books for the likes of us on the shelf, you can get those in the library 😛

        • Tlink7

          You can get games in the library too! I like my physical media as well, but mr Roto manages to insert his love for hard copies in almost every one of his comments xD

          • ForeVision

            I guess one would call that outspoken, and yes, you’ve reminded me of “ye olden days” when I visited the library to rent my games. You had these plastic red slabs with a printed image of the game in question taped onto it.

            Whereas these days, I rarely physically enter the shop any-more 😛 (for games that is, my local supermarket has me visit nearly every day)

          • Tlink7

            I love buying my games in a shop. Don’t have a game winkel nearby though 😀

  • R.Z.

    Add gyro support !
    (No idea if it’s already in, but whatever)

  • Tlink7

    Kinda weird that other games don’t have this issue

    • michael clanton

      to be fair, there are not many games…. nor big 3rd party games, this is literally the biggest third party game switch has…oh, and its a port.

      • Exposer

        I mean if the console is selling well with constant first party support and publishers dosent want to put their games on Switch thats not Nintendo’s fault.

  • YoungTheFish

    The one game that I don’t care about resolution XD, at least on console.

    • ibo✿✿AKA✿✿SleepyAbra༼凸 ◉_◔༽凸

      Minecraft 4K you know you want it…

      • michael clanton

        buy ps4 pro or scorpio

    • michael clanton

      yeah resolution doesnt mean much for many games, its just a talking point in console wars.

  • Pachirisu

    but does a game like this need it? maybe they should work on improving the render distance instead

  • Addy

    “We didn’t have enough time so a resolution that was acceptable in 2006 should suffice until then.”

    • Velen (Not WoW)

      That feeling when someone reads so far into something they literally have to make something up to convince themselves of their conclusion.

      -or they’re joking, in which case, f#&* it.
