Albert Penello Told “You Don’t Need to Know” on Call of Duty Ghosts Resolution on Xbox One; Explains

The saga of the resolution of Call of Duty: Ghosts on Xbox One and PS4 continues, after yesterday evening Sony Computer Entertainment Vice President of Publisher and Developer Relations Adam Boyes revealed that the game will run at a native 1080p resolution on PS4, while the pixel count on Xbox One is still a mystery following unconfirmed rumors that it’ll be 720p.

Today Microsoft’s Director of Product Planning revealed on NeoGaf that he did ask the executive that runs third party relations at Microsoft about it, but he was simply told that he doesn’t need to know. He also explained what it means, and mentioned that he'll be "bummed" if the rumors are true.

I'm getting a XB1 but really?
this is a 'need to know' basis? oookay.

cleft5976d ago (Edited 976d ago )

Albert Penello has really been doing a bad job as the PR guy for MS.

Looking at the footage of the new CoD game for PS4 I can't really imagine it not being in Native 1080p on the Xbox One. So I really don't see why they just don't confirm it or say ask the developer the way Yoshida did. This just makes me think that CoD isn't 1080p Native on Xbox One. If this game can't run 1080p Native than Microsoft has a serious problem.

Drekken976d ago

Albert Penello is doing just about as good as he can do with the product he has to represent. The only thing worse he could be representing right now is Obamacare.

Abriael976d ago (Edited 976d ago )

To be fair, doesn't doing (arguably) a "really bad" job of PR mean that he's probably just honest?

I can and do respect that.

Eonjay976d ago

Give Penello a break though. How do you run PR for a console in 2013 that can't run the a title as weak as COD in 1080P. That is almost indefensible for a console's whose top preordered game is COD. A disaster beyond comprehension. So Penello is doing a great job actually.

Septic976d ago

"Albert Penello has really been doing a bad job as the PR guy for MS. "

No he's not. he's being as transparent as he can be and I welcome that instead of the constant spouting of generic statements.

What do you want him to do? He CAN'T even give out the info, he just told you why.

pedrof93976d ago

@Abriel

But at this point, he could simply contact someone at Activision.

joefrost00976d ago

Correct me if im wrong but didn't yoshida tweet that activision will let you know
And if a game being shown on a certain system don mean its better on that system think about madden the only nex gen footage we have seen is from the X1 version
Didnt eurogamer confirm call of duty back in june was 1080p 60fps on both console
Besides looking at that ps4 footage 1080p didn't reLly help it any
Also obamacare is lack of information
If people.would.take time and read.it and not go off what certain people tell you on TV I find it hard for anyone to criticize it

Saviour976d ago

Albert already told them to ask Activision, but they still asking again n again. A CoD true fan don't care abt rez, these are more likely trolls who'r asking.

LightofDarkness976d ago

But he's been told he's not allowed to know. Asking someone at Activision will yield the same results.

I MUCH prefer his honesty and transparency. Saying "he's not doing a good PR job" is effectively saying he's not lying to you enough. I wish more people in this industry were like this; he's giving it to you straight, with as much info as he has available to him. I'd never disparage someone for their honesty like that.

torchic976d ago

given what he has to work with, Penello is doing a decent job. it's pathetic that in 2013 a brand new console isn't running games at native 1080p. a day at work for the poor guy must be equivalent to climbing Everest.

the problem with Penello was his initial foray into GAF where he decided to speak up in defense of Xbox One specs. now he has created a culture for himself where he's forced to defend the hardware in X1. he shouldn't have touched that issue, rather focus on X1 positives

badkolo976d ago

joefrost , hard to criticize forced healthcare that cost more with higher deductibles then before??, no thanks,

ElementX976d ago

I think he's doing a good job. He's asking questions and reporting what he finds. I mean he's doing the best he can with the information he has.

mistertwoturbo976d ago

You know, in retrospect Penello is nowhere near as bad as the likes of Aaron Greenberg or Don Mattrick. I'm pretty sure if Penello worked for Sony he would have a much easier time.

J-R976d ago

If the Xbox One can only run COD: Ghost at 720p that may be the reason we are seeing a lot of the footage of the game being done from a PS4. The HD videos that IGN has been posting lately have all been from PS4.

badz149976d ago

if the rumor is false, it's fairly easy to shoot down by official words from either MS or AV themselves just like how Adam Boyes confirmed 1080p for the PS4. the words are there and there shouldn't be anymore speculation.

however this Xbone 720p rumor is yet to be denied by officials but instead, what we got were "looks fantastic" which is highly subjective disregarding the native res and now "you don't need to know" thrown at Panello by the face! with Ryse toned down to 900p, KI running only 720p (it's F2P so there's that) and rumors of DR3 struggling to maintain 30fps, MS should have known better about the importance of shooting this rumor down for good!

it's not like CoD suddenly became the most wanted game of next gen, (I'm not gonna buy it EVER) but looking at the PS4 footage which are already confirmed to be 1080p/60fps, the game clearly lacks fidelity of next gen material and looks more like this gen material TBH but somehow the Xbone is rumored NOT to be able to run it at 1080p?? it's no longer the question of how crappy the game looks but rather how crappy is the spec of the Xbone itself.

no matter how you see it, it's not looking good for MS, not AV! after all the talks of "the power of the cloud" and stuff, this is the last thing they want to happen!

extermin8or976d ago

@Drekken: obama wants millions of americans to have access to free healthcare and that's bad?! Not his fault the opposition prettty much shut parts of the country down by refusing to cooperate over a deal todo with finance's and a plan. (think that was the issue)

SilentNegotiator976d ago (Edited 976d ago )

Penello has taken pathetic to a whole new level. 720p/900p COD Ghosts on Xbox is now confirmed as far as I'm concerned.

@extermin8or

What's bad isn't that they're trying to make healthcare more accessible. It's bad that they're (1) forcing people that don't want it to pay up to a $1000 fine/annual, (2) forcing people to pay maternity/child care in their personal policy (they're trying to fix the healthcare disparity by subsidizing a highly profitable industry - massive logic failure there) whether they're single, gay, castrated, impotent, etc or not, (3) doesn't fit into our budget (hint: the shutdown happened because our budget was messed up, not because "the opposition" refused to agree on a budget - it was because they didn't want to agree on making the USD even more worthless by printing more money).
...I could puke at the amount of ignorance from both sides on the affordable healthcare act. But that's what happens when you force a gigantic bill through before more than 12 people get a chance to analyze it.

scott182976d ago

It will be 1080P on the Xbox one. Seriously there is no reason for it not to be, X1 is plenty powerful. I don't see it ending up less than 1080P...

christocolus976d ago

@cleft5

c'mon dude albert is a great guy and he has been as open as he can be..cut the guy some slack.if this one(cod:ghosts) doesnt hit 1080p and its sequel (which obviously will be alot better looking)does, wouldnt it confirm the fact that this title had already gone too far using the earlier dev kits and hence the devs couldnt re-code in time for launch?...its what devs have been saying..they got dev kits late and the drivers also are not near final..it shouldnt take anyone with some commom sense to know that 1080p isnt an issue for the xbx one..if youve been reading articles online you would have figured this out.devs who have the recent kits are actually seeing the difference..its just unfortunate that some games have gone too far already using the old kits..im not trying to debunk or confirm the rumor all im saying is we should wait to see how games coming out next year will fare...though imo 720p and 1080p still aint a big deal to me cos it doesnt change the basic gameplay experience of the game..just ask the casual gamer and he will tell you they all look same to him or join a match online and ask gamers currently playing cod what they feel about this and they will tell you same thing..when i bring this topic up when playing with my friends they actually call me a geek which i aint and its all because majority of gamers dont give a damn about all that crap.they dont even know there is something called 1080p..all they know is that it looks great on their flat panel hd tvs..

wsoutlaw87976d ago

@silent the government was shut down as a method of extreme people in the republican party to try to force congress to delay the health care bill a year because they dont like it. People are out of work because a group of people are mad that a law got passed. This isn't the place for this discussion, but it drives me crazy when people go around complaining about who ever is the president or things like the health care bill when they dont know the first thing about it and just go off some obviously biased "news" channels or super pac commercials. You need to understand why health care is so expensive and rising way faster than any thing else. You are already paying for anyone that doesn't have insurance because hospitals need to make a profit. Please just actually read something before talking, no matter what you think about it. The bill has a ton of flaws but the shut down isn't helping them and is childish.

Anzil976d ago

@Abriael your saying hes being honest? lol you xbox fanboys will say anything to convince yourselves haha. He said "you don't need to know"!!!!! this is bad PR period at least sony fanboys have a reason to rally even if they are most of the time ridiculous but the excuse after excuse is getting old and frankly your pathetic...xbone might have good games coming to it but man was it a massive screw up from start to launch. MS Screwed up and your doing the absolute worst thing you could for the xbox brand and eventually even you will dislike microsoft if not xbox......get it together your worse for the industry than mobile and cod itself

Gamingisfornerds976d ago (Edited 976d ago )

@ anzil, cleft and all the other idiots that can't read: I'll modify the text for you so you'll understand as well:

Today Microsoft’s Director of Product Planning (ALBERT PENELLO) revealed on NeoGaf that he (ALBERT PENELLO) did ask the executive that runs third party relations at Microsoft (SOMEONE ELSE) about it, but he (ALBERT PENELLO) was simply told (BY SOMEONE ELSE) that he (ALBERT PENELLO) doesn’t need to know.

Got it?!

bakasora976d ago

Jesus Christ joefrost00 I don't understand any of it.

Palaven976d ago (Edited 976d ago )

LOL @ the people who can't even read the article properly before raging about Microsoft in the comments.

Where is the part that confirms CoD isn't 1080p on Xbox One?... There isn't one.

Drekken976d ago

@extermin8or - OMG. You are the reason we are in such trouble. People like you, the uninformed, are dangerous because they say stupid things like " Obama wants to give free healthcare to millions of Americans" with conviction.

I am not going to get into a political debate here, but Obamacare is not free heathcare. He is forcing everyone in America to buy insurance. Because of this policy insurance rates are skyrocketing, deductibles have gone up, and hundreds of thousands have lost their insurance policies. While all of this is going on the main way to sign up for Obama's "free healthcare" is broken. I would like to know though... how the hell could you consider his "free healthcare" free when peoples monthly rates are doubling and deductibles are as high as $11,000.00. What is the point of healthcare if you have to pay $11k when you need it? Get informed and talk to some responsible, job holding adults before you start talking about things you are clueless about. I will tolerate you and your kind telling lies about game consoles, but I will not listen to your crap about politics.

amiga-man976d ago

He is correct, I don't need to know because I'm getting a PS4.

Bobby Kotex976d ago

Seriously, that was a YES or NO question and he couldn't answer it, so I would assume it's not 1080p.

hakeem0996976d ago

Dude is doing a great job .He is right COD is not an XBOX ONE product ,it is an Activision game 720p or not who cares ,It's Activison's question to answer, and it's on them if the product is subpart although i don't see Activison making a 720p and a 1080p version of the same game knowing that it would cause conflict and a dip in sales .that's just bad business. they will both be the same version

Death976d ago

If the upscaler outputs the game to the tv at 1080p, is there really a big differance? I do understand that upscaled is not the same as native, but if it's not enough differance to see unless you count the pixels or freeze the image and compare them side by side, what's the big deal? Way too much focus on pretty and not enough on creating new or better experiences. If pixel count is what you are after, buy a PC.

SilentNegotiator976d ago (Edited 976d ago )

@wsoutlaw87
"the government was shut down as a method of extreme people in the republican party to try to force congress to delay the health care bill a year because they dont like it"

So the expenses of the healthcare act has nothing to do with the fact that we hit a budget crisis? Believe it or not, without making the USD even more worthless, we couldn't afford everything in the Healthcare act at all, and that's part of the reason there was a problem. You can't fault politicians for voting in a way that tries to stop things that they disagree with and push things they agree with; that's what politicians do (until you disagree with them, I guess).

"but it drives me crazy when people go around complaining about who ever is the president or things like the health care bill when they dont know the first thing about it and just go off some obviously biased "news" channels or super pac commercials. You need to understand why health care is so expensive and rising way faster than any thing else. You are already paying for anyone that doesn't have insurance because hospitals need to make a profit. Please just actually read something before talking"

I am informed. 99% of people have no idea about the idiotic maternity/childcare requirements for EVERYONE, for example.

Me paying a MUCH larger premium for maternity care and childcare has nothing to do with fixing the costs that we pay for when hospitals don't get paid; it only helps an already very profitable industry become more profitable.

Fining people for not being able to afford healthcare (even with subsidies) does not solve that problem either.

You probably think I'm against the healthcare act entirely because I'm aware of massive flaws in it. You already implied that I watch FOX. Maybe you should stop looking at everything in black and white like the politicians causing these issues.

Redgehammer976d ago

So far I have found Mr Penello to be forthcoming and honest. I have appreciated his candor, and his attempts to fight against a backlash that I found to be biased and unfair on many levels. Did MS make some mistakes? Sure. Did they climb through anyones window and abduct their child? No. Still to this day, I have found most of the seriously biased stuff from all the usual suspects, in all the usual places. I am for buying what you like, and what you feel best represents your gaming habits and lifestile. The PS4 Sounds great for a Sony product. If it had Samsungs name on it, I would be way more apt to give it my money. To you Day one people, Kudos.. i hope you have fun, fun, fun!

tigertron975d ago

It would be good if Activision actually came out and confirmed the resolution.

As for Obamacare or whatever, I don't claim to understand the details as I'm not an American, but wouldn't it be great if you all stood up to these insurance crooks and demanded free health care? it's a basic human right and we have free health care in the UK, it's paid for by the tax payer. It's not perfect - it has many flaws, but our health care system is the envy of the world.

JBaby343975d ago

@ Drekken, Silentnegotiator, and others who know how to think and not follow blindly: I appreciate your efforts but don't try to educate, talk common sense, or discuss economics with Obama followers. They cannot seem to understand even the most basic of principles in these areas. They cannot fathom why you can't just print more money or take it from everyone else as you please. They see no problem with raising the debt ceiling, increasing taxes, increasing spending, and other destructive acts. I still haven't figured out if it's the school system or the individual at fault.

People need to stop thinking the parties are working for them. They aren't. Every side is serving themselves. They are all corrupt. What sad state America is in.

OT: There can really only be one reason that MS responded this way. Time will tell what the resolution is come release day.

ramiuk1975d ago

exactly,big problem because it isnt even good looking imo.
sound,animations,movement identical to all other cods,
infact if it was labeled as DLC for ps3,xbox360 i would believe it i think.
yet other games i can tell there is a graphical jump.
even on ps4 it looks current gen

scott182975d ago (Edited 975d ago )

@JBaby343
"They see no problem with raising the debt ceiling, increasing taxes, increasing spending, and other destructive acts"

And is anyone dumb enough of think that any of this was any different with a republican at the helm? At least President Obama (respectful way of referring to the US leader) is trying to figure out a way to get care to people who can't afford it, perfect or not. I will pay money to help the less fortunate out. Greedy, rich fat cats should be willing to do the same.

JokesOnYou975d ago

This is stupid have you seen COD graphics, they arent anything special over current gen, so why wouldn't it be 1080p?

Gamingisfornerds975d ago

Apologies to cleft5.

Unlike anzil and others, cleft5 did actually understand the article.

JBaby343975d ago (Edited 975d ago )

@Scott: You must have only read the first paragraph. We have many problems both sides have caused in various ways. Obama is singled out now because he is the president now. George Bush screwed things up in his own way. So did Clinton. I don't know anyone who is against helping people in need. What people don't like it being forced to give without any ability to control what happens to what they "give". We didn't need socialism to improve healthcare. It will only make it worse.

Don't fall into the "rich fatcats" garbage either. Class warfare is not the answer. You could tax everyone who makes over a million dollars a year at 100% and it wouldn't cover the deficit for one year. It's not the fatcats. It goes much deeper than those few.

P.S. I didn't disagree with you :)

Sono421975d ago (Edited 975d ago )

How are Xbox fanboys not understanding? Like seriously? Your confused on how we come to the conclusion of it being less then 1080p.. really? Well let me break it down for you

1. In previous call of dutys Microsoft's consoles have ALWAYS been the console cod was showcased on.. now this gen it's PS4. The thing is Activision and Microsoft's contract hasn't ended or anything, they're still partners.. as a matter of fact it was just renewed like.. a year ago? So there's one reason.

2. In the article they directly say that this information is being kept private.. just click the think you'll see it yourself, but why is it being kept private? They (AV) confirmed it's 1080p on the PS4.. so why not on the Xbox One? The console of the company they are partnered with? Shouldn't they be trying to advertise their partner more? Sure AV is teaming up with Sony when it comes to Destiny.. but as for Call of Duty Microsoft and Activision are still hand in hand.

You fanboys seriously need to wake up.. in what way do you see this pointing to it being 1080p? The spin is strong with this one.

Anarki975d ago

You don't need to know about this resolution so please buy our inferior product, ok?

rainslacker975d ago

I actually wonder why people don't just ask Activision directly. It is their game after all. If Activision isn't willing to disclose that information for whatever reason, then there is no reason to assume that MS would be allowed to disclose it.

Otherwise, I like Penello alright. He seems like he wants to do a genuinely good job. It's like the people at my work that I manage. If they try hard and seem like they want to do well, I am a lot easier on them than those that don't.

BattleAxe975d ago

Albert Penello actually seems like he's a guy with integrity. He's been trying to find out what the real comparisons are for Xbox Fans, but he's being stonewalled by the company that he represents.

jackdaddy975d ago

Yet still the xbone wise monkeys will defend it.
This console is not fit for next gen, it's not even on the same level as the PS4, not even close!
Does that make me a fanboy and a troll? i don't care lol, i'm not the one who is going to buy a overpriced, under achieving tv box. COD cant even run at 1080p native? if this is true, this M$ piece of crap is doomed before launch lmfao.
But it does have Ryse and a Camera....... :/

Hitman0769975d ago

@cleft5 exactly. Forget about the COD Graphics for a second and ask yourself this:

Is Microsoft being sabotaged from within? Why is Penello still making awkward, negative headlines? The guy seems incompetent.

I asked Aaron Greenberg but I do not expect a reply...

MajorMayhem70975d ago (Edited 975d ago )

@Drekken
Or even worse, trying to convince America that the republicans has their best interests at hand.... Not even Jesus could pull that one off.

Keep being ill informed by watching Fox News. I don't think they believe half of what they say.

My main problem with the Republican Party is that for a country like the great U.S of A. that is soooo diverse, yet that party doesn't seem to represent the diversification. Not just race wise, but even women in the party. You have a bunch of men (majority Caucasian) that want to tell women what to do with their bodies.
Next point. They hate Obama soooo much and yet Obama beat them twice. Why did they lose? Cause the party is out of touch. Why do I know that? Cause the party believed they lost cause the candidates weren't conservative enough. Really?!? How about that party is toooo exclusive. That is why they lost and will be beaten again by Hillary come 2016.

Penello is a great guy and he is really too honest sometimes. The problem is that if the Xbox can't render native 1080P, this is a disaster. Call of duty is a weak game graphically. There is just no way.

xXxSeTTriPxXx975d ago

I think this is some kind of pubicity stunt on activion and M$ part, because they is no way in hell that the xbone can't run this in native 1080p.

I'm not getting a xbone but the game is hideous even in 1080p so xbone should have no problems running this at full resolution.

And if it can't omg if it can't.

warczar975d ago

Penello is trying to Jedi mind trick us... 1080p is not the resolution you are looking for... you can go about your business... move along.

kparks976d ago

I agree wtf is goin on @ m$ if it runs 720 who cares come out and say it or say currently its at 720 but our goal is 1080 they need to stop with there stupid PR BS!

devwan976d ago

He's the main PR guy, he's got literally 1000s of people hanging on his every word... but sure, he doesn't need to know.

It's that balance thing again... balance between facts and secrecy. Keep a secret and people will hang on, keep their pre-orders and hope for the best. Admit the truth and... whoa, wouldn't want to upset that balance, you don't need to know... there there...

n4rc976d ago

He doesn't.. And either does anyone else!

Its all getting ridiculous at this point.. Since when does all this matter? Why now are we arguing over any obscure technical aspect instead of just talking about the product we get in the end?

Its all for this bullshit fanboy war.. the public doesnt need to know every detail abiut development, especially when the info is only going to be used to talk trash to another group of their customers..

More should follow suit.. Stop feeding into this crap.. Microsoft doesnt disclose 3rd party info.. End of fkn story.. If it really was an issue, dont you tjink theyd be announcing nba2k was 1080/60?

But they didnt.. Because they dont disclose info on 3rd party games even if its good.. They let companies speak for their own product

devwan976d ago (Edited 976d ago )

@n4rc A BS fanboi war? You seem genuinely hurt and upset, it's just games consoles.

What people have issues with is there has been all this playing down the performance difference yet, if we're to believe the strong rumours, the same game from basically the same engine on similar type hardware is pushing less than half the pixels. That's big news.

http://bit.ly/H6ZDhO

warczar975d ago

@ narc

hate to burst your bubble but this isn't some obscure technical aspect, if it were you wouldn't see the resolution listed on every t.v. you buy. In fact 1080 has been a selling point for t.v.'s for about 10 years now so I think it's about time that our video game consoles take advantage of it.

True_Samurai976d ago (Edited 976d ago )

Ikr! Son I'm investing into your console. Dont make me make myself become accustomed to the ps4

But I'm still on the edge of how the other game are 1080p 60fps. So cod is probably the same as ps4 version but not really a big deal or difference

Yes i did read the article, and i think it's complete BS.. Wouldn't surprise me if he made up this quote to save face.. why have Sony had no problem answering? Why is everything that MS should answer straight forward shrouded in mystery? Why never a straight answer?

They continue to clutch onto their MicroStraws and either lie or try cheap tactics to reel clueless folk in.

@shadyiswin

I'm not getting this regurgitated, sorry excuse of a game thanks, but this is a great indication of the future of multi plats, no?

ramiuk1975d ago

its as simple as this.

if it was native 1080p they would say it is.
there is only 1 reason a company would say no comment or u dont need to know and that is if it was under that.
the difference between cod and bf is huge,scale,graphics,audio totally different.

so i accept the sub 1080p res as they havent had long to get it on console and new tech etc.
but a game like cod has to be 1080p as its nowhere near as demanding as any of the BF series(no matter what console,pc)

BABY-JEDI975d ago

What is so difficult with informing people about the resolution of a game on a console? Gamers deserve to know so that they can make an informed purchase!
MS really should get their act together. Did anyone experience the likes of this on the Xbox 360?. I don't recall anything like this.

sephiroth420976d ago

so long as it looks and plays better than the last COD, does it really matter what the resolution is?

ado908976d ago

Lol that's the problem, it doesn't look any better than the last COD

Cryptcuzz976d ago

The problem is, if it is not native 1080P and the PS4 version is, it is telling how the X1 is compared to the PS4 in terms of future multi-platform games.

Think about it, COD is a huge franchise (I don't play it much since I suck at it) and if word comes around to the millions and millions of people who will buy and play it with their friends that the PS4 is the better version, it could lead to a lot of people switching to the PS4.

Of course not just this one game will do that, but it could be the start of that trend and be imprinted into most gamers mind whether true or not. Same thing happened to the PS3 this gen, but with PS3, it did have the horsepower to show for itself that it had the best looking games via its first party games.

The other problem is, Penello has to know what the native resolution would be for COD on X1. Ask Activision for the answer? Why? When Boyes from Sony could confirm what the native resolution for COD on the PS4 would be. So both high executives from both parties, but only the one from Sony is in the know?

Think about it, MS should come clean and just say it. Being silent about it is only going to make it worse. You say resolution doesn't matter, but with a multi-platform game it should matter, since the consumer should have the right to know all the facts and be able to decide which version is best for him/her.
