PES European Product Manager, Adam Bhatti stated on Twitter earlier that Konami was “communicating” with Microsoft, presumably to boost Resolution of its Pro Evolution Soccer 2015.

Bhatti stated the following:

Bhatti goes on to state that while the Xbox One resolution is technically the same as the PlayStation 3 version of the game, the Xbox One version’s overall visuals are not the same, and he challenged gamers to spot the difference.

Regardless, though, the internet backlash against the news has apparently led Konami to revisit the game with the help of Microsoft to bolster its resolution. This wouldn’t be the first time that Microsoft has aided a developer in increasing its game’s resolution. Last month it was revealed that Microsoft had worked directly with Blizzard to increase the resolution of Diablo 3 from 900p to 1080p on the Xbox One.

Whether the target resolution for PES 2015 becomes 900p or 1080p is unclear. We have reached out to Adam Bhatti for clarification and will update this article accordingly should we get it within the next couple of days. Otherwise, keep your bookmarks on TechRaptor for the latest developments.
