Derek Littlewood, one of the main men behind Free Radical Design's PS3 shooter Haze, has revealed that the game will not run in true HD because of a deliberate choice on the part of the development team.

"We prioritise a nice smooth frame-rate over a different resolution," Littlewood told Ripten.

"Personally, I don't really buy the whole thing. People did the same with Call of Duty, they did the same with Halo, and they say with those games 'It's not running at true HD!' And it's like, 'I don't care.' If the game looks good and it runs smoothly, those are the important things to me."

Littlewood then confirmed that the game will run at a resolution of 576p, not 720p, and that the PlayStation 3 will thus have to upscale the image.

Ubisoft meanwhile has confirmed that Haze will have a minimal install requirement of 4GB, though not the whole game is installed on the disc.

The oft-delayed and hugely anticipated Haze is out later this week as a PS3 exclusive. If you are twiddling your thumbs until release then why not check out our recent guest column by Haze's screenwriter Rob Yescombe, titled Dear TV: Get Your Act Together?
