The Xbox 1 just can't catch a break! Or is it just that the crows have finally come home to roost?

This article is about to be taken down in record time, if it even gets approved.

So just how in the hell were they going to show the sp against the mp of PS4 in 1080p!? Oops another bone done fell out of Microsofts closet!

Microsoft really needs to get in front of this situation. I said it before, but this is simply something they cannot let stand. Which console will be the lead for multiplatform games is a big deal to a lot of people, especially games with multiplayer.

An embargo is basically a ban, nothing reviewed before the end of the embargo.

Thing is, if this is true and ALL the other versions are to be reviewed at the same time except the Xbox one version despite the fact the game isn't out til later on PS4 as well, that screams of PR managing bad news doesn't it?

The very act of isolating and delaying news of the Xbox one version shouts it from the rooftops they are attempting to protect that one version for some particular reason.

This really sucks for Microsoft. I really have a problem wrapping my head around this idea. In the age of direct feed video and twitter, word gets out fast. Visuals are tangable. That why they are called "Video" games. 1080p looks better than 720p. I think they messed up with the ESRam. All video cards today use GDDR5 Ram. How can the system be more expensive and less capable? OMG

An embargo (in this type of case) is the following:

A company sends out their games early to several journalists for review, so they can try out the games and have time to write their reviews. In order to be permitted early access to the game, the journalists must sign an agreement stating they will not reveal any facts or information about the game until a specific time. That silence agreement is called a review embargo.

Didn't DICE already say that BF4 would be the same version on all consoles ?

the truly ironic thing is that MS spent millions to have BF4 and CoD:G exclusive marketing for XB1, but the PS4 version ends up getting all the good publicity for free.

So before the Wii U couldn't do next-gen and now X1 can't do next-gen. Really.... are you only going to give me Forza, FIFA, and NBA? A freaking racing, soccer, and basketball game.

The games that are actually pushing the envelope can only be in 720p. And it's arguable that COD doesn't push the envelope and neither does BF4 for that matter. These are 1st generation pseudo next-gen games for crying out loud.

"Hopefully" is just a bad choice of words. People are voting on whether the rumor is true or not. It should say "Maybe" or "Possibly" or something like that right there.

OT - Whether it's true or not, it's not good for rumors like this to be floating around this close to launch. Stuff like this is worse than PS4's delayed games. It accentuates XB1's weaker hardware at exactly the wrong time.

@ joe90.

Exactly! Why would anyone want a story that can only be regarded as bad news to be true?

I'm really having a difficult time wrapping my head around the concept of the N4G detractor. Do these people gain some kind of satisfaction when things go wrong for others? Are they actually "happy" when an article that paints a competing video game system in a negative light turns out to be true?

I wish someone would explain that mindset to me. I just don't get it.

Microsoft has done a fantastic job of making them selves the bad guys over the last 6 months. So gamer sentiment wants them to burn for their mistakes. It is up to Microsoft to change public opinion and stop this snowball from becoming an avalanche. Cant really blame gamers for being pissed, their has been some shady things taking place behind the scenes.

At least that is how I interpret the "Hopefully".

For some reason the people that designed the site have a area between "hard to tell" and "for sure" that is listed as "hopefully" with the crazy idea that all rumors are positive.

People arn't voting that "hopefully" the rumor is true. They are voting that they think the rumor is true but some are skeptical.

@ Stiggs

Kind of like how Microsoft pays for third party exclusives so that Sony does not get the game (even if timed), rather than investing money in more in house titles? It seems they are more concerned with preventing Sony from getting a game, then Xbox gamers getting an extra game. It also seems that many Xbox gamers get satisfaction from Sony gamers not being able to play these games, if even temporary.

We are getting better. X1 is the far better console. Can do way more than PS4. We already know it can do games at 1080p native (Forza does that and Drive club could not, so it was delayed). What ever resolution COD or Battlefield runs at will be fine. But I will wait and see for myself. You guys can live and die by rumors as if there are fact.

I think you may be delusional.

I am fine with your opinion but, I don't think you should post it as fact. The only thing currently that XBOne can do that PS4 can not is watch live TV and Snap. The value one puts on these features is up to the end user. I would personally like to snap into a Slimjim then have my games take a backseat to tv/skype.

@Bigpappy, "I will wait for the facts and see the differences for myself... if there is even any."

Curious to know if it is a big difference and the rumors are true are you (along with anyone else) going to switch for the better console? You have to remember that this is the beginning of a 7 to 10 year generation and the gap will probably widen if true.

There is nothing wrong with still supporting the weaker console but it is kind of shady that no one wants to admit it. MS should take the lumps, admit the differences and move on instead of trying to be manipulative.

it's the third console curse meng, Sony weathered the storm on the PS3 and they've been riding a HUGE wave since about 2009 and as of recent caught and passed MS despite them (miscrosoft) having a 1 year head start and a console that was initially 1/2 as much money as the PS3. I think the XBOX supporters get exactly what they deserve, what you thought Microsoft was good for this industry? HAH! Paid online, that was MS's doing, Paid And Timed & exclusive DLC, MS brought that to the industry... Greed and monopolistic business practices, MS brought that too, with a suitcase full of endless amounts of money. You saw how cocky they got as soon as they thought (keyword thought) they had a stranglehold on the industry. They were about to force a bunch of things onto their supporters, doing things TO their customers instead of FOR their customers. And you can bet your ass, that if Sony wasn't on the scene, doing the complete opposite, doing FOR their consumers and all they had to compete with was Nintendo, then all of that Restrictive DRM... glorified game renting and Kinect BS would all still be in full effect.. You guys that back MS should really open your eyes, this is not the XBOX of 2008, They've failed to innovate, they've failed to listen to the consumer... their soccer mom out of touch Boss doesn't know what the hell she's doing in a Gamer industry.. All of the people who were on the original XBOX teams are all gone, they were enthusiasts.. they made it great, they've moved on. Maybe it's time you should too.

Soc5  +   763d ago
The crazy thing is people are not going to stop comparing these two new consoles for years. Lots of silly endless debates will be cropping up for the foreseeable future. I mean they still argue endlessly about the ps3 vs the 360
Now every game that comes out on both systems will be immediately compared to see which system plays it best. The difference is this time The Xbox is higher priced and weaker. Before it was close and the 360 was cheaper.
But lots of people do have a point that can't be denied if this report is true : why pay more to run a game at lower quality.
madjedi  +   763d ago
@pappy "We are getting better. X1 is the far better console."

Exactly how the hell is it a better console, it's more expensive and less powerful than the ps4. Where does the phrase better even remotely fit into the equation here comparing both systems abilities to play games.

You can say the xbox one is a better match for you do to preferring ms's exclusive and eco-system ect for you but to call it the better console is hilarious.

"We already know it can do games at 1080p native" So can the ps3/360 it just depends on how much the devs want to compromise to achieve it.

Gaming is not the priority the xbox one was designed around, hence the laughable ddr 3 for graphics memory and the e sram/dram bandaid. How many mid to high end cards utilize ddr 3 for graphics memory none that i know of.

Look information up about the system, both systems specs have been known for a while now, minus the ps4's cpu speed.

Ryse was touted as being 1080p natively rendered till they retracted their claim admitting it is 900p.

"see the differences for myself... if there is even any." Let's see essentially the same architecture only one is significantly more powerful than the other. Damn talk about thick.

I do love the people saying forza is in 1080p so below 1080p on the xbox one for cod/bf 4 is because of lazy/unskilled devs.

Let's see cross gen multiplatform games at launch on 5 platforms vs next gen exclusives on 1 platform.

I just feel sry for people buying current gen releases of cross gen games, because they will look like ass regardless if you compare to the ps4 or the xbone.

You have to remember one thing nobody knows if it was actually running off the Xboxone or PC that is where one of the problems have started as we all know MS was busted doing.Second nobody had seen what the PS4 version was looking like so now that they have seen it there probally is a huge difference in quality of the games.This is where everything hads snowballed into a shit storm for MS and there Xboxone.I wish that MS had just waited to release there console when it will be running the way it was meant to or maybe that was MS intentions with the Xboxone was to be more family friendly and cut alot of what gamers like to see out.Im not going to lie im not a fan of a console that was focus on multimedia as a priority and a company doing backward flips left and right,im a gamer firat and for most so those things dont matter to gamers now a days like myself.You can see which direction MS has taken and its obvisouly a dark ONE.This is what happens when ypou alienate your hardcore gamers for a gimmick like kinnect and focus on that one and only thing.Like I have said in my previous comments you can have a billion dollar cheque book to spend on timed exclusive dlc and games that arent going to be exclusive for very long to make gamers happy with all the bad luggage that comes with it.

You also have to remember that at all these shows they been running off 720p tvs as well.Plus its not obvious that when you put a MP version against a SP its telling you that the ONE console is just inferior to there SP so much that they have to comnpare fair videos to balance it out or it would look so bad that alot of people will be turned off by the difference.I dont think this is some made up article to start shit this also isnt the first article to claim this.Its obvisouly the truth coming out something MS has known for a while.If they dont make any kind of statement by today about all this then your guarnteed they are in damage control and dont know how to adress the public especially after all the shit they have been through in the last few months.I have a feeling this is lookng bleek for MS and that alot of gamers who enjoy the xbox brand might start jumping the ship with everything thats been going on and im talking about all the lies and keeping stuff from them which matters most.

I think most blame would go to the dev if this is true. If BF4 can get to 720p then Ghosts with not much going on should easily be at 1080p. Maybe they got messed up by the X1 hardware changes and ESRAM. But this is a joke if they don't hit at least 900p!

Well at the point the silent confirms it's not 1080p because we have learnt from the Driveclub situation silent is not good.

I wouldn't say it's a big deal for COD because well COD is not graphically demanding but if the PS4 version of BF4 is running at a high res with the same settings or better than the XB1 version then we can see the difference is real and they are not on par as some devs & Albert Panello have made it out to be.
EXVirtual  +   763d ago
Well, if the COD rumors are true, then you can bet BF4 will be 720p. It's beyond superior to COD in the graphics department.

Now my question is: How? How can the XBO be running COD at 720p, but Ryse in 900p native? Is Crytek lying? Because Ryse looks much better in terms of visuals. I know COD runs at 60fps, but seriously, it's not a demanding game when it comes to graphics.

jmc8888  +   763d ago
900p/30 and 720/60 are pretty similar in terms of horsepower needed. Ryse went for graphics over framerate.

Also Ryse has been in development since 2010. So it's an exclusive title that has a much larger development timeframe.

It's not like CoD, where they need to pump out 5 or more versions every year. Ryse is one version in basically four years.

CoD is a bit wasteful with resources and BF4 can produce better visuals with less power taken up.

Despite all the disadvantages inherent with an Xbox One game, BF4 on Xbox 1 will almost assuredly look better then CoD:Ghosts on PS4.

That ESRAM is going to be hell for smaller devs and aspirational indies. I bet even bigger devs are going to have problems with it. But it no doubt will get better as time goes on. But so will the PS4.

But, Ryse was being developed as a kinect game and then MS suddenly told them to make it an xbone exlcusive. Also Crytek said themselves that MS had to rewrite the coding in xbone to make it possible for crytek to make the game on xbone and there is no way, even with the "powah of teh cloudz" that BF4 will look better on xbone

Just need the confirmation that BF4 is 1080P on PS4 and i'll be set.

My biggest fear going into this gen has been with xbone being significantly weaker then PS4, multiplats would be held back to maintain parity.They've proven it's not the case so far, with COD being 720 and 1080p, but COD sucks anyways.BF4 is where my time and money will go.

PS4 wouldn't get held back, I don't know why people seem to have this in their minds.... The game engines are now scalable, dice have said this about frostbite since they 1st introduced it as far as I'm aware, most modern day game engines are this way, they scale to the power that's available to them.

I'm still buying an Xbox one regardless as I'm a gamer, and for that very same reason I just bought the Zelda Wii U, and again for that reason I have a PS4 coming, resolutions are not a factor if the game is any good to me, im 37 and been through every generation, and this gen going into next gen has been quite horrible with the side taking, gaming isnt like is used to be

Great graphics are coming to both consoles regardless if the game is 720p or 1080p, Im ssooo Ready!

Thank you!! I Feel the exact same way. The general negativity and elitism on this site is really disappointing, and saddens me as a gamer.

At 33yrs of age I have had the great joy of growing up with gaming from a very young age and having had a system (or two or even three) from every generation of gaming since the Atari 2600

What matters in FUN people. Not Resolution, or FPS or how many FLOPS your rig/console is capable of. I play games for the joy of it. Honestly otherwise what is the point?

Never have I been witness to this level of nastiness, and aggressive negativity with any other generation launch. I remember it a little with the PS3 vs XB360 back in the day, but I also remember the vast majority of people would shut down the bitter trolls and they were either ostracised or simply ignored my the general majority.

I am getting a PS4, because I have always gotten a PS every gen since the PS1. Not because I'm a SONY "fanboy" but because I'v always had more fun on my PS's and they've always been my primary gaming platform. The thing to remember is that I also always ended up getting the other consoles a year or two after launch anyway. I mean why not. No matter the console, there are always great exclusive that make it a worthwhile purchase.

I have owned every Nintendo, Sony and Microsoft consoles since the original PS1. And I fully intend on getting a XBOX1 too.

Even if the PS4 was the weaker machine this gen I would still get it over the XBOX1 because I want to. I could tell you my reasons why, but the fact that I "choose to" should be reason enough.

PLWASE!!!! This a call to all true gamers, stop with the petty negativity, the trolling, and lets focus on the fact that we are about to enter a next generation of gaming. The possibilities are endless. Its a good day to be a gamer, no matter what system you choose to play.

Seeing posts like yours and the other guys above keeps my faith in gamers, being a gamer when I was a kid was a bit of a geek thing, I to had the wood veneer Atari 2600, but gamers always got along with each other, if you asked someone what system they had and it was weaker or different to theirs people didn't look down on them and tell them how shit they was for having such system, the answer usually was " oh I wanted to play x game is it any good" as it wasn't on the system they owned.

All this hatred for consoles and the people who own them is simply pathetic, we all have something in common, we all play games, we should be sharing our experiences with each other about each ones system, why are people so upset if MS have a kinect? Why are people so upset if someone prefers the look of drive club over forza.

I don't think it will ever be like it was again, which is sad as like I said, we are all gamers, whether its in 720p, 1080p or 4k

Battlefield 4 on Xbox is not 720p. It's more like 1600x900 maybe 1440x900 but no way is it 720p. Check my video out from the xbox one tour I just came home from
Onehandband1t  +   763d ago
Why am I getting "Disagrees" lol, I am only stating what I saw. For your information I am a PC gamer and would say my eyes are trained for resolution scaling. Just saying it looks higher than 720p :/

I thought those are natural abilities not something you an get trained for .. I will google "see through wall classes" .. 6/
Nekroo91  +   763d ago
i saw the same gameplay and im pretty sure it was 720p ...the final release can be upscaled but that doesent mean that the native resolution is higher than 720p.
christocolus  +   763d ago
even if true..i doubt it will affect sales of the xbx one or even the games..ill love to follow sales of these games post launch to see how it goes...but just like ive been saying i believe most gamers do not give a damn about game resolutions...i dont and my friends dont..ive never done comparisons this gen and i wont next gen.i have personally never encountered any gamer out there who does care about this and i have so many friends who game(psfan and xbx fans).the game experiences will always be the same across both platforms..and things will get better as the devs get accustomed to the latest dev kits..if the xbox one versions look washed out or had severe bugs that rendered its games almost unplayable i.e bayoneta on ps3 then we would have an issue...but for now imo this isnt an issue at all..and i believe it will only be noticed in launch games which where developed almost entirely on the early xbx one dev kits..but as i said lets watch the sales of these games post launch.
stuna1  +   763d ago
You're out of your mind if you don't think this will affect sells! For 1 a lot of gamers who pay attention to what's going on will take this as a blatant betrayal by Microsoft, because it's not like they are not just trying to fight back from the deceit from the initial reveal, then the constant 180s, and now this! Everyone has a limit, yes even Xbox fans.
2. The fact that Microsoft is trying to hide these issues is not something anyone is going to stand around and allow it to happen, you only have to listen to the once Xbox fans who have switched sides, which are confirmed by pre-order numbers at the heart of Microsofts territory.
3. Most have chosen to upgrade to the next generation, because they want higher definition, higher frames rates, bigger gameplay areas! If not they would just stick with this generation.

Just because you say the people you know don't want these things, doesn't mean there aren't millions out there who do.
christocolus  +   763d ago

instead of ranting can you pls be patient enough to watch and see how the sales of cod will be affected on xbox one post launch?..judging from your comment you expect it to sell less than the ps4 version right?..i do not believe in using pre-orders so pls let us see how sales go post launch. call of duty is a game synonymous with the xbox brand so if what you are saying about majority of gamers not buying a console or its games due to difference in resolutions(due to inferiority) turns out to be actually true then it will most definitly show in sales of this franchise and sales of the xbox one pls lets be patient and see how the sales of cod plays out next gen and if the xbx one will actually loose momentum due to these rumored issues.....aint dwelling on this topic anymore though.

Well said.

It's a pity there aren't more xbox owners that are this sensible instead of purposefully ignoring all the terrible things MS have done to core gamers.

You'd think the pathetic number of exclusives MS have released on the 360 alone would be enough for gamers to switch sides.

Tbh I'm quite confident this is true, if these games are in fact running in 720p this is bad news for the xbox one, if titan fall is confirmed as 720 I may even drop my xbone pre order, I'm not interested in ps4, very disappointing.
joshuatobi  +   763d ago
Titanfall has already been said to run at the infamous 720
Bigpappy  +   763d ago
Titanfall was being built first for 360. But it has been pushed back to 2014, so there is no conformation of anything just yet. But cancel a game because of resolution? Really. PS4 fanboys got you that embarrassed over resolution of a game? I suggest you cancel right away if you are that gullible.
MysticStrummer  +   763d ago
@Bigpappy - "PS4 fanboys got you that embarrassed over resolution of a game?"

You don't think all this resolution talk has anything to do with 360 fanboys gloating about a few extra pixels in multiplats all this generation?

I sure do.

What goes around comes around. If there are small differences in PS4's favor the gloating will ensue, and if there are large differences in PS4's favor the gloating will be legendary. XBox fans will cry about it and never admit that when the ball was briefly in their court, they showed no mercy. PS fans should remember this and take the high road, but they won't.
GrandpaSnake  +   763d ago
just do it already, i cancelled my x1 pre order just last week. i stuck with ps3 even though the 360 had a slight advantage with most third party games because of the variety of games ps3 offered internationally and genre wise. i would have done the same for x1 but i honestly think their just banking on the release and halo, titanfall i believe wont do that well and i think we weill see a simultaneous or release within the year if the ps4 sales very well.
Funantic1  +   763d ago
Is this how the consoles war will be?...lies and rumors? I wonder what the new rumors will be once the X1, COD, and BF4 release and turn out being ok. Any new ideas? And how isn't this on ign if this is coming from an ex ign employee. This site seems to have news you don't see on major sites. It's like it's a bunch of opinions and very little fact. This isn't even a "leak", it's opinion. Even if the resolution isn't 1080p on COD or BF4 it'll get upscaled like on the 360.

Websites like IGN/Gamespot aren't allowed to talk about specific things until they are given the okay. Leaking certain information will get you blacklisted from the industry.
jmc8888  +   763d ago
Lies and rumors?

Well what we know is...Microsoft knows what the console can and can't do....but they are withholding that data.

The reason the facts are coming in the form of rumors is because Microsoft is run by a bunch of backwoods corn liquor swilling hillbillies.

THEY THINK they can't tell the truth so they obfuscate until the last possible minute. They force (and to be fair aren't alone in doing so) people to follow this or those sites risk be alienated. You know par for the course in our propaganda press.

It's why you get Penello saying crap like....'looks great to me'.

Up-scaling to 1080p is not the problem here. The problem is the fact that MS( mostly Albert Panello) & some devs have said repeatedly that XB1 & PS4 are similar in power/preformance but obviously if this is all true then all the talk has been adverse PR talk as far.

I honestly can not believe this needs to be said.

This site designers themselves put that poorly chosen word 'hopefully' when it gets to a certain number of votes. People are just voting whether they think it's true or not.

I would have thought that would have been abundantly obvious. Think before you open your mouth next time.

They should. A press that prostitutes itself is no longer the press. It's propaganda. Or as some term it...presstitutes.

Sadly since all the major news stations/papers/websites do the same thing, gaming journalism just thinks it's the way things are.

Well lots of the way things are is flat wrong. At some point people force changes. Until then, we'll reap what our masters sow for us.

So speak up now or forever will the press be like this.

My guess, from your cryptic message, is that you either:

a) love Microsoft exclusives like Halo, which I can respect or
b) Think Microsoft is being treated unfairly and in an unbiased way.

I passionately hate Microsoft because they tried to enforce policies which were directly created to make them more money with the side effect of making gaming worse for the gamer. Are you a gamer? Are you aware of the shitty policies they tried to pull on the gamer? Have you forgiven them?

here: Interestingly enough, he also specified without mincing words that one version looks “definitely better” than the other. not BOTH versions. and oh by the way single player vs multiplayer.
GmIsOnPt360  +   763d ago
He said he captured 1080p footage of Xbox one and ps4 gameplay so yes he did say it , and if you stop and think about what he said , he said you'll be aurpirsed that one looks better than the other . Now I'm no road scholar but the ps4 is said to be the spec winner , the clear favorite in the early on, so wouldn't we be surprised if the Xbox version looked better as nobody would be aurpirsed if the technically on paper console was better looking ? Just a thought folks

read the headline..

"Battlefield 4 PS4/Xbox One Direct Feed Footage Coming October the 29th, One Version “Looks Better than the Other”

also this..

"I can’t talk specifics until the 29th but I can say that ONE of the next gen console versions definitely looks better than the OTHER."

Why do you think hes showing the SP of the Xboxone to the MP of the PS4.Obvisouly we know that MP is and has always been downgraded so showing it this way would be a better comparison.Its obvious that Xboxone is 720p because the SP for the PS4 is most likely running alot higher then that there for showing the lower resolution of the game.I think that everyone is taking this One looks better the wrong way and that your reading into way to much.We already know that the Xboxone was suppose to be launched next year and was pressured into competing with the PS4 or they would lose all there gamers.I think its time to stop fooling yourselves about the almighty powerful cloud for now and start thinking about the future of the One for next year.Im sure the Xboxone will be awsome next year but right now its just pushed hardware not ready for deployment.
