OnePlus had no real reason to abandon the OnePlus 2, and it won’t need one for the 5, either

Good news, everybody – the OnePlus 5 is finally official! What this hopefully means is that the company’s hype campaign for the device will thankfully die down soon, at least for a short amount of time. But aggressive and slightly irritating as it was, it sure worked: the 5 is eagerly being awaited by a ton of fans, nevermind its slightly higher price and… unimaginative design.

Nintendos Switch wont run Zelda at 1080p

Otherwise, it’s the same experience. Nintendo says a few onscreen buttons will differ — inevitable, given the two platforms have different controllers — but that’s about it. In its statement, the house of Mario also revealed that both versions will run at 30 frames per second.

That will be a disappointment to some, who were no doubt hoping for a perfect 1080p/60fps performance. It should be stressed, however, that resolution and frame rate doesn’t determine a game’s overall visual quality. Art direction is far more important, and Breath of the Wild has it in spades.
