We have completely forgotten about the existence of 900p resolution, but here we are, with the launch of next-gen consoles around the corner, talking about it.

The year is 2020 and the Next-gen is around the corner. With ultra-fast SSDs introduced to the gaming consoles, the loading speeds are about to get an insane upgrade over the last-gen. 

The frame rates are getting a major boost too. We're talking about 120FPS here. And the resolution being advertised with this next-gen is a mind-blowing 8K.

In a world where 4K TVs still haven't found their way into everyone's home, we're being told that this upcoming generation will be 8K-capable. The future is now. Or is it?

We thought that this upcoming generation will completely jump from 30fps to 60fps and that 1440p would be the least playable resolution in favor of a higher framerates. 

But, we were wrong. Sadly, the 900p is alive and kicking.

SEGA's Atlus studio have confirmed that Yakuza: Like a Dragon will have two modes: Resolution mode and FPS mode.

In a live stream on Twitch, Sega Atlus' Zack Reese talked about the resolution and frame rates of the game. During the stream, Zack answered some questions in the chat posted by random viewers, and he confirmed that Yakuza: Like a Dragon will run on Xbox Series X at 4K and 30 frames per second in resolution mode, and 1440p and 60 frames per second in FPS mode.

On Xbox Series S the game runs at 1440p resolution and 30 frames per second, and 900p and 60 frames per second in FPS mode. We were expecting at least a 1080p resolution here.

The game is being advertised on Xbox official site with an "Optimized for Xbox S|X" logo, saying:

"Games built using the Xbox Series X|S development kit are designed to take advantage of the unique capabilities of the Xbox Series X|S. They will showcase unparalleled load-times, visuals, responsiveness, and framerates up to 120FPS."

Sadly, the game is nowhere near those 120FPS. 

Yakuza: Like a Dragon will be out on November 10, 2020, for the PS4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC. It will be released later on for the PS5, in March 2021.
