Thursday Throwdown: Does COD: Ghosts 720p vs 1080p Matter?

"Some sites have been reporting on the NeoGAF rumor that Call of Duty: Ghosts will be running at 720p on the Xbox One compared to 1080p on PlayStation 4. However, the impact of this news is probably a lot less severe than most are making it out to be. We're sure a lot of PlayStation 3 owners are smiling because of the inferior ports they went through during the opening years of Sony's last console, so it's only fitting Microsoft's camp receives a little prodding of the stick this time around. Despite this potentially significant difference in resolution, do you think it really matters in the end or do you think it's just being blown way out of proportion?" (Call of Duty: Ghosts, PS4, Xbox One)

Maybe wait until IW actually confirms something? I expect a rather large backlash against MS and IW if it turns out true. Why even have this discussion when we are dealing with unconfirmed rumor at this point for XB1.
ArchangelMike  +   842d ago
It is being blown out of proportion and won't really affect sales that much, but yet it still matters. Let me explain; 'Next-Gen', primarily means next-gen as far as graphics are concerned. The standard 720p graphical output was last gen resolution. 1080p should be the 'Next-Gen' standard. That's what it means to be next-gen graphically.

I know that in the end it will not add or take away from the gameplay, and that the game will still be fun to play. So does it really matter? Yes, in a way it still does, because I'd rather play the game on a console that delivers 'Next-Gen' graphics As Well As the fun gameplay!

To answer the authors question, when you go out to buy an HD TV, do you go 720p or 1080p? I'm sure the latter and yes it does matter cause it looks more detailed and as long as nothing else in the game is compromised to compensate then I'm all for it.
Eonjay  +   842d ago
It will look better on a 1080P TV no doubt. I would rather play on 1080P than 720P. Everyone would. It is easier on your eyes and looks great on that TV you paid for. If you don't have a 1080P TV then who cares. But honestly, no one is gonna chose 720P over 11080P if their TV supports it.

Bigpappy  +   842d ago
1080p resolution does NOT mean the Graphic will be better. What is means, is that if you have a 1080p or better screen, the image should be sharper.

Some people would choose the lower resolution if they don't have a 1080p screen, or if the game plays smoother and has better graphic effects. Often you can add more details to the graphics and get more consistent performance if you reduce the resolution. It is dependent on the engine, the GPU and the RAM. Any game can be made to run at 1080p on either X1 or PS4, but will there be effect or performance cutting is where you should focus, no the resolution itself.

A lot of people are arguing like this rumor is "game set match" (confirmed) not to say it will or it wont happen Im just saying there are xbox fans pulling eurogamer articles from 5 months ago to playstation fans acting like its already a fact. For now guys speak carefully with words like "IF this is true" because either side could end up looking very foolish.

Sure it may look like by some accounts that it is true, but the image could end up being broken by a simple "they're the same" in the coming days. You never know. Wait for some security.

It's not about sales, it's the principle. They couldn't run the game at 1080p + 60fps on Xbone.

720p for a game as ugly as COD: Ghosts is pathetic. TitanFall will be the same.

Its gonna hurt a lot if the rumors about CoD and Titanfall are true. These are Microsofts bread earners and 720p would scream to everyone that there are problems with the xbox one that these two games could no t b made to run at 1080. The news may take awhile to become widespread but if initially there r big graphical differences on a game of this magnitude, expect many to make a shift. I am actually having a hard time believing it.
CrossingEden  +   842d ago
1080p graphics don't mean anything. 1080p resolution does not equal better graphics. And people like you need to stop pretending that it does. -_-
Killjoy3000  +   842d ago
Mike, here's the question I've been runnning through my head - With the steady increase in graphical fidelity for next gen titles in the coming years, will native 1080p go the way 60 frames did last gen? Meaning will it even be possible? I surely hope so. I never want to go below 1080 again, but I feel many developers will have to sacrifice it for other assets of their games.
mikeslemonade  +   842d ago
If true then it is a bigger deal than you would think. When you extrapolate over a generation it is very telling the difference of power and the optimization level for each system.

Just think about it.. why would Infinity Ward go the extra mile to make it 1080p on one system. They would try their damn-est to make both console holders happy considering X1 has the exclusive content. So this is very telling about how easy it is to make a superior version on a PS4, and then we can take this (if true) as a preview of the next generation; being: we can expect to see superior version to be on PS4 with every game.

This could be the difference between the Xbox original vs PS2. When every game on Xbox original looked better and performed better.

@ You guys saying "1080P doesn't matter, the game will lookt he same blah blah blah on 720P blah blah blah"

Take a moment and think. If the rumors are true about the X1 not being able to do 1080P, then doesn't that tell you how underpower it is compared to a console that does support it? To me, this just proves the whole idea that the PS4 is more powerful, and it won't just show in resolution alone. It's not like IW and all these other devs are just gonna slap 1080P on the PS4, they are gonna make sure it's top notch to with performance.

next gen don't mean gfx. next gen means new system for people to buy. with a lot of products(thank god its games) they could just release the same with new firmware update. if yall think next means gfx the new systems definitely didn't come far. the gfx are making progress each gen, but lets just enjoy the games people.

If it would be native 1080p Microsoft would just say it straight out like Sony. But they know that this is a huge deal so they won't tell you that it's 720p or something in between.
Benchm4rk  +   842d ago
If the game doesn't run at 1080p native on Xbox One it won't be from a lack of hardware but rather a software/driver problem. Looking at the specs there is no reason that it couldn't run at 1080p
SilentNegotiator  +   842d ago
Only an ignorant person would ponder for a millisecond whether or not it "matters" if it's 720p or 1080p. The difference between 720p and 1080p is massive.

Shake_Zula  +   842d ago
I think it is more so that IW and MS is staying quiet on the subject for this console while its counterpart is confirmed 1080p. Typically in marketing, you want to advertise the good things, and everything else (usually negative) is left to discovery ESPECIALLY when you have direct competition. The competition in this case is a very-well marketed BF4. The silence tells us one of two things. The X1 version of the game is not going to be 1080p, and will either stay that way or the game is technically not finished and will be in a future patch (hopefully day one).

Either way, we can treat the resolution as a benchmark for how much is going to be happening in the game at one time per console. So, since CoD passed QA running 1080p it's safe to say that under the development methods, more can be added in referencing to textures and details without a need to degrade any other quality of the game. In the inverse on the X1, it can also be said that since the target resolution could not be met (again, under the prescribed development methods), the game has maxed out the hardware's current capabilities, and the addition of more detail is not possible.

With that said, I think the reason why the game doesn't look as good as it should might be because an obvious graphical difference between two versions of the game would be bad for sales overall. And for those who are wondering, there is a sizable difference between 720p and 1080p. To say that there isn't is like saying there's no discernible difference between 480p and 720p.

Sorry for the long post :)

Nitrowolf2  +   842d ago
While I agree that the game engine and the game looking like shit, shouldn't that just further show that it does matter? If an engine like this can't get a game running 1080P on X console while the other can, doesn't that just say something? And do note, that this engine is pretty much the very same engine that's been optimized to run on the Xbox system since the first MW.

Yes it's important to have 1080p on next-gen. C'mon dudes, 720p is the standard for the PS3/X360. Obviosly the 1080p is the next gen standard.

Too bad the COD : Ghost is not 1080p on XO. Yes, it's confirmed indirectly. How the hell Adam Boyes knows that COD : Ghost's is 1080p on PS4 and Phil Spencer or Adam Penello does not know for XO what are 3rd party are doing:


1080p does matter. WHO THINK THAT 720P IS OK ON NEXT-GEN, THEN STAY WITH PS3/X360. 720p is not good on next-gen. And it is even worse when 720p is upscaled to 1080p on XO. GAME WILL LOOK THEN FUC**** DIMMLY!

wsoutlaw87  +   842d ago
@webeblazing how are you going to try and say they are dropping "res for gfx"? you think they made graphical improvements on only the xb1 version and chose to lower from 1080 and just chose to make ps4 1080? dont be crazy.
Ch1d0r1  +   842d ago

bjmartynhak  +   842d ago
To be honest, no big difference in my 17'' screen

I tried to download 2 movies from the same uploader just to test (one in 720p and other in 1080p). Both are highly compressed, the 720p simply sucks, while the 1080p is ok.

Depending on how the TV and the console upscale, the size of your screen and how distant you stand, it won't matter at all.

But sure, 720p, COD? This game is not even pushing graphic fidelity. At some point, I believe that PS4 games will be pushed back to 720p at the end of the generation to keep up with PCs... and what about Xbox One? This is what really concerns me.
bjmartynhak  +   842d ago
lol at the disagrees,

People are really seeing any remarkable difference in these screenshots?

The building in the middle of the screen is the only different thing

720p vs 1080p depends on distance and screen size, it's a fact:

The biggest problem in all this is that X1 is not future-proof.
Kayant  +   842d ago
The real problem here I feel is that Phil Harrison & Albert Panello has said multiple times that have no idea of the res of third-party games even though Adam Boyes from Sony somehow knows. To add to this some MS execs have been saying there won't be a difference between the two for a while.

In the case of COD I don't think it matters too much because well it's COD it's hardly the most demanding game out there & you have Ryse running @900p arguably one most the best looking next-gen games & we have Forza 5 @1080p 60fps. What matters is the fact especially with Albert Panello is that he has repetitively said he doesn't know the res of third-party game however that doesn't seem to be case as seen with Sony now the question is how far those this rabbit hole go and how many more things has he been glossing over.

But 1080p does provide more than often a noticable shaper image over 720p.
deecee33  +   842d ago
I'm with Crab. Smart money says MS and IW should NEVER, ever let this happen. An inferior port would be a stain on both of their brands. Like it or not, the COD community was built around the XBox brand.

But keep eating that popcorn, boys, this could get interesting.
tordavis  +   842d ago
You guys realize no matter what, people won't notice because if it is NATIVE 720p, it will upscale to 1080p anyways? And do you also realize that you get more effects at 720p than 1080p. Devs talked about this before the systems were announced.

If you want 1080p/60 on all your games, get a PC.
imt558  +   842d ago
Nope, it doesn't work like that. If you get 720p upscaled to 1080p, you will not see some graphics effect clearly because picture are dimly. Go see the pictures above. The higher resolution you get, less AA you need and less jaggies there will be.
tordavis  +   842d ago
You'll never know what the native 1080p version would look like if there is none, so there's nothing to compare it against. Also, it's not likely people are buying a game based on the resolution. It's more likely that people buy a game for 60fps over 30fps because that affects gameplay. And your response about 'dimly' didn't make any sense.
StoutBEER  +   842d ago
See, this is my position as of now. I dont care about CoD so this doesnt bother me. But if in the future I see more and more games that are lacking, theeeen I might get worried.

You know what's funny? Last gen 360 owners wouldn't shut up about how PS3 got so many inferior ports. But now that the Xbox One is getting them, it doesn't seem to matter anymore. This is a big deal if true, because it may mean that the definitive console version of many third party games will be on PS4

Reminds me of the "Good enough" Folks during the HD-DVD vs Blu-ray format war. The people backing Blu-ray wanted it for the Higher Bit rates, lossless audio and larger disc capacity. The folks backing HD-DVD had this "it's good enough" attitude, and we see which one won that war...because enough people got behind the specs of Blu-ray disc.

Software_Lover  +   842d ago
HD-DVD was the better tech, just did not have the backing. It took a couple of updates (firmware of the hardware) for Blu-Ray to gain some uses that HD-DVD already had. This of course was after the sure death of HD-DVD.

Without PS3, things might have turned out differently. I'm not saying they would have, but they might have.

I remember those days, I was a strong support of Blu-ray. Main reason for me to get the launch PS3.

But it goes both ways, many of the multiplatform games were simply better on the 360, but many of the PS3 Fanboys said it was good enough and blindly said they was not much difference when there was in terms of the overall feel from FPS, Screen Tearing, Color rproduction and resoltuion.

Both crowds have their fanboys and it is quite funny how things are battled out for now reason.
Ju  +   842d ago
Well, in relation to PS3s inferior performance, this time is long gone and what it actually shows is the PS3 can keep up (and exceed the 360 - latest installments show this). Technically the PS3 is in no way inferior to the 360 - counting BD and the bigger (standard) HDD, the PS3 has quite some advantages (specs wise). But here, with the next gen, if true, there is a physical difference which no optimization can overcome. This is quite a fundamental difference. Especially if you point out we had a marginal 1fps and 1% screen tear difference in the past. 720 vs 1080 is quite massive in comparison.

Software_Lover  +   842d ago
The fact of the matter is this...............

If no one said anything, 95% of you wouldn't be able to tell what resolution you are playing at. You would be focused on the game and how it looks (textures, effects, particles, etc). Resolution is not the end all be all, even in the PC realm. Sometimes, if you want to run all the "eye candy" and you don't have the power, you turn the resolution down. 720 with everything to the max will look better than 1080p and some things turned off.

Is 1080p better than 720p, yes. If all things being equal, most of us would prefer 1080p because it is the native resolution of our televisions. I'm just surprised at all the remarks about how some of you will not buy a game if it isn't 1080p.

Letting your rabid fanboyism get in the way of sound judgement.
SmokeyMcBear  +   842d ago
As the article pointed out, its not really not buying the game if its not 1080p, its this console does 1080p and this other one doesn't. I wonder why that is. Couldnt they do a Ryse job and do a 900p.. or something in between, but to drop it down all the way to this generation standard of 720p is a little troubling.
dantesparda  +   842d ago
Honestly, im just surprised that the x1 cant even handle this game at 1080/60fps (if the rumor is true). Otherwise, I aint surprised, with almost all their exclusives (KI, DR3, and Ryse) downgrading, the devs and rumors saying so and it being more powerful on paper. Why would anybody be surprised? Oh yeah right, thats right, cuz they're fanboys, and fanboys dont like the truth, they like to believe their own bullsh*t.

Everybody on this site, knows damn well that if the shoe were on the other foot and this was the PS4 having these issues, the internet would be ablazed with sh*t talking. But since its MS, suddenly it doesnt really matter. And all that matters is that it looks good, or is fun, or that 60 frames! People are so phony its insulting

Have you actually visited the internet in the past 7-8 months? There is absolutely no shortage of hate on the Xbox One for what it does, doesn't, can, and can't do. The PS4 has come under approximately zero fire since reveal.

I'm not saying anything is justified or unjustified, but Microsoft hasn't gotten a free pass in a long time.

Remember when Bioshock came to PS3 and Big Daddy had few large pixels on its back in certain situations? That was a huge deal back then. Now all of a sudden 720 is the same as 1080.

@Enemy & @Fenome so you're telling me that recent article From Official Xbox Magazine is not good enough to debunk a rumor oooook . And Activision and ms have series of partnerships together. You're really gone believe that they'll allow the ps4 to run at 1080p 60fps but not x1?

Look at the quotes in the article, he never says it's running on 1080 on the Xbox One..

As revealed by Eurogamer in June, the game runs at 60 frames per second in 1080p. "We actually have a 4K TV at work and got the game running on that," Rubin told the site at the time. "It looks phenomenal. The 4K TVs have a max hertz of 30, so we're maxing it out. It looks amazing!"

The quotes from him start AFTER it says "as revealed by Eurogamer, blah blah 60 1080" but it never actually quotes him saying that it's running on the Xbox One, it was Eurogamer saying that.

I don't really care if does or doesn't personally, and I seriously bet they're both probably the same since COD is all about the quick money-grab anyways.

I'm just saying, I DON'T KNOW, BECAUSE THEY HAVEN'T SAID YET. Jesus Christ guys, give this crap up already, shit's worse than politics

Never actually says native or not, so you don't really know. I'm fine with 720p standard at the very least tbh. Any lower and that is quite a disappointment, but it's early days and there will be some issues on both consoles.

@Enemy - He is a massive Xbox fanboy, he's on full damage control mode at the moment. Just ignore him.

lol console fanboy wars..... I thought 720p was good enough?

Lets just let the games come out. It's gonna be quite funny down the line around the 4 year mark, were gonna see the consoles struggle doing 720p. Why because performance of a console is static for good 6> 8 years.

Truth is 1080p at 45+ FPS is the standard of PC and very atainable.

Both consoles should be aiming at this range for the whole life cycle if the console crowd truly feels they need graphics.
SmokeyMcBear  +   842d ago
performance of a console is static?!?!? Look at lauch ps2 games and GOW2. Look at launch PS3 games and then the last of us. There is no way a console performance is static. In fact, consoles have the ability to be optimized to a much greater extent than their PC counterparts. Just look at the actual parts of 360 and PS3, and see what a PC with those same spec can put out. cmon now. I agree that 1080p and 45 fps should be a hard target.
Rageanitus  +   842d ago
the console specs remain static from a hardware perspective. There is STILL limitations as to how much throughput the hardware can handle. Hence the reason why there is the term called bottleneck.

Yes software from launch looks worse than end of the life cycle, because there is a learning curve as to how to program for the static hardware. But have you not noticed games started off native 720P and even some games at 1080p at a decent frame rate. Yet near the end of the generation many of the games struggle to atain native 720p and at the same time sacrifice much of the FPS. It is a bottleneck being displayed.

A good way to see how much power a console has is take a handful of consoles games and compare how much these games have advanced over the course of 5 years.... then take the exact time frame and compare it to the PC games. You will see a much drastic increase on a PC vs t he console.

Btw I had the similar GPU on my PC the time the 360 came out. Gears of War looked way better on the PC vs the 360.... You make it sound that a PC cannot be optimized! very closed minded. There is a reason why ATI and Nvidia release drivers often

At first I read the website as Then i thought the fanboys and finally lost it and came to accept their console is shitty.

For gameplay? Not really... But in regards to long term, I'd rather be on the side that can... Over the side that can't.

Word of advice
if you can't see the difference between 1080p and 720p it's time for a better t.v or a pair of glasses.
Flutterby  +   842d ago
You will notice the only ppl that can't tell the difference are either xboners or xboners pretending they aren't .
DEEBO  +   842d ago
Yeah i know it's the bluray not needed until we put it in the x1 720p argument again.

If the shoe was on the other foot it would be a xbox fanboy circle jerk but now it doesn't matter.

we don't believe you,you need more people!
MasterCornholio  +   842d ago
And if LOT and Digital Foundary prove that multiplats are better on the PS4 , the Xbox One fans will accuse those sites of being run by Sony fanboys who doctor the comparisons to make the PS4 version seem superior to the Xbox One version.

Trust me its going to happen. The two consoles are not the same so there's bound to be some differences between the two which is something that all gamers need to accept.

Not really from what I've seen it could be exactly like BO2 graphically with brighter lights and 90% of the COD fans on my xbox live will buy it.

If true, it matters becuase it shows the power difference between the Xbox One and PS4. Any next gen console should be able to produce 1080p games without problem and no hiccups. If Xbox One has troubles with this now how will things look a few years down the road?
TheSsus  +   842d ago
It'll still sell like hotcakes. Resolution is irrelevant to the average CoD player, its all about ease of use, framerate and pace.
bromtown  +   842d ago
It doesn't matter if you don't have a 1080p TV but otherwise of course it matters. 720p is less than half the pixels of 1080p, a fair bit of potential definition not to use. Especially on distance objects which just become shapes if you don't have enough pixels for the detail
Max-Zorin  +   842d ago
Console gamers just kicking back laughing at the console community argue about a resolution they've been using before it was cool.
Flutterby  +   842d ago
Oh yeh that makes sense , I think it might be time to l2read your sentences before posting then huh?

I was rushing and watching college Football highlights at the same time. And I was rushing, didn't even bother to proof read. It's not the end of the world.

It may not matter for this particular game, but it's a tell of things to come on the Xbox One.

Um iw stated that the game was 1080 p 60 fps months ago on x1 and ps4 stop being sheep.
Flutterby  +   842d ago
Gotta love the pre-emptive defense , the Xbox one fans are all saying who cares it doesn't matter at the same as saying its not even true it's a rumor , just so they have both sides covered lol, if it turns out to be true MS should be ashamed , but I can imagine they are throwing money at ppl anyway in hopes each million dollars increases the res. who knows really tho and if it's true then it only confirms once again what we already know and that is the ps4 has more power, and that leads me to another thing if the xboners really don't care that the ps4 has more power why don't they stop defending it and replying to everything and just let it be hmmm , I know for a fact if it was the other way around the xboners would be blowing horns and parading in the street but alas no cigar.

These Sony fanboys really need to stop ! Everybody knows the reason Ghosts is currently only running at 720p is cuz the Xbone has not been officially released, therefore they have not turned on Teh Cloud, therefore no 1080p ! Hellooooooo ! My gawd, you guys are stupid !

Not when the gameplay is recycled and plain. The engine is outdated also. GG, Activision but BF4 and Killzone: SF are getting my money this year.
