Running same COD: Ghosts tech on both Xbox One and Xbox 360 was "tough", admits Infinity Ward

Speaking to Aoife at a Call of Duty: Ghosts event, Infinity Ward's Mark Rubin has shared a bit more about how the current and next generation versions differ. Bringing the game's new locational audio systems to Xbox 360 was "tough", he said - at one point, Rubin and his team feared they wouldn't be able to manage it. (Call of Duty: Ghosts, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

No, it wasn't. You guys have the easiest jobs in the industry. You would know that if you weren't so arrogant all the time and actually stopped and looked at other games in the industry and how hard some devs work.

Copy and paste is so hard....

Look, I am kind of tired of COD also. Your comment is childish and a giant load of horse crap. Have you visited their offices? Have you any idea how hard they work?

Being a games developer isn't as easy as you perceive it to be.

I don't need to visit their offices to see that they make the same game every single year, the games do that fine themselves.

lol you say this as if there's massive change in each title, i bet they work on the next one for like 3 months and prepare for the dopes who enjoy paying £45 a year for a rehash.

I can respect their work , even if i strongly dislike it and thus avoid it . But it's another matter when they insult everyone's intelligence with forced PR statements about innovation and how hard it was .

Of course no one should expect them to say anything negative , no one would , even if hypothetically promoting a turd . But it's unbecoming now , the marketing via ads and the likes are more then enough ...

Screw the public perception and feelings of us haters , they wont convince us and dont need to .

Even EA eats more humble pie when they promote their annual fifa release .

I'm the first to call out someone labeling developers as lazy or taking the easy road, but you can't sit here and give THESE guys a pass. COD is like a sports game at this point, and people just keep lining their pockets, in record numbers. If you're going to argue that hard work takes place in their studios, then how do you explain a successor coming out every.single.year this whole generation, when they are all essentially the same game?

I have so much respect for infinity ward they did all that hard work to get ghosts working on 360 and one. they have so much innovation. i will always support them by buying there great priced games and season passes

p.s get a new engine you sauses

Midgus - A rehash get playing your call of splinter cell

I imagine its hard to redesign old maps and pretend they're new. Making large map ideas into small hamster wheel of death maps is hard too. Listening to fans asking for no quick scoping and dedicated servers , and ignoring them is hard too.

LOL! yeah right, because its not the same Engine...

The Xbox one version is just 1080p thats all..

How many game engines do you think are written from scratch every game or even every generation?
Scatpants  +   311d ago
At least once in 8 years would be nice when your games make over a billion dollars a year.
PrimeGrime  +   311d ago
OHHHH YEAAAAA! (In a very sarcastic manner.) That is all I have to say to that.
IcicleTrepan  +   311d ago
it would be so disappointing lol taking this great game you've made and then start stripping stuff out because the 360 can't handle it.
danny818  +   311d ago
Because of the fish AI?
Ripsta7th  +   311d ago
Yeah heard that alone uses 50% of its power

The dog must be hogging the rest of the ressources.

yeah right mastering a 7 year old graphics engine must be so difficult. Every other game dev out there is busting their ass trying to bring new fresh gameplay ideas to the FPS genre and this guys talk about hard...smh
EdoubleD  +   311d ago
Claims it is hard work to copy and paste and add a couple of skins here and there. Unbelievable.

Cod is the only game in the world that let's you shoot a gun under water and that bs!!!! #copypaste
Regis  +   311d ago
Well CoD has the worlds worse fanboys and that's true
naBs  +   311d ago
I honestly can't believe how Call of Duty gets away with the same crap! So weird, especially when you got titles out there so much better, to name a couple, Battlefield and Killzone..they deserve it more than Call of Duty in my opinion. Thankfully I think next gen *I hope* people will be jumping ship from COD to better titles >.> have faith people..lol
MineHaxx  +   310d ago
Jumping to Battlefield 4,Titanfall and Killzone maybe.

adding boobs to the characters was tough?
JunioRS101  +   310d ago
Tough? Yeah maybe because if you developed to the best of your ability it would be much more than tough, it would be "impossible".

Xbox 360 is such a weak system it's ridiculous, and releasing more or less the same game on both it and its successor console which is at least 5x more powerful is really not fair for people who buy the X1 version.

However the people who buy CoD haven't exactly been to picky about "game quality" in the past, so I wouldn't expect them to do the wise thing and not buy the game this time around.

Like c'mon people at least demand and updated set of character animations...

Funny, they are trying to downplay the next gen versions weakness, by pretending the 360 version is impressive...
