Creative lead Derek Littlewood has confirmed that Haze does not run in high definition.

He revealed the resolution as 576p and not 720p, which leaves the PS3 with the task of upscaling the image.

"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."

Ubisoft has also revealed that Haze will require an installation of at least 4GB.

"You will need to go through a minimal install (about 4 Gigs) but not the whole game," said a community rep on the Ubisoft forums.

Haze is due out exclusively for PS3 this week. Look out for our thoughts soon.
