Mark Rubin confirms Call of Duty: Ghosts is 720p on Xbox One and 1080p on PS4

Mark Rubin: "Hey, been on the road last couple weeks so haven’t had a chance to update, but wanted to confirm that for Xbox One we’re 1080p upscaled from 720p. And, we’re native 1080p on PS4. We optimized each console to hit 60 FPS and the game looks great on both. Still on the road, but glad to see the great reception to Extinction. Can’t wait for next week’s launch." (Call of Duty: Ghosts, PS4, Xbox One)

Upscaled to 1080p... Sad news for Xbox fans!

Same with BF4 too, PS4 version has 56% more pixels on BF4 (native 1280 x 720 on X1 vs. 1600 x 900 on PS4).

1080p native on PS4 and 720p on X1? Next gen hasn't even started yet and already the gap is noticeable.This has really surprised me, CoD Ghosts isn't even that impressive graphically!

Really good to see that devs are using the extra power of the PS4 and not aiming for parity.

Lmfao. "only rumours!" "Sonygaf spreading FUD!". Maybe some of you will take rumours that start there a little more serious now aye? :P. This will sting for people who accuse Neogaf for making up rumours on the go.

But my my... come on now.. many sources confirmed this, even journalists for god sake. Even if some of you didn't want it to be true.

At least it's upscaled though.

Get ready for a botched up Digital Foundry comparison to down play the PS4 version too(dat washed out blur). Looking forward to that high contrast, crushed black and dialed up sharpness on the XB1 version.

Well its a no buy for me because they either rushed it or just didnt put alot of effort into it. The game is not graphically demanding so theres no way it shouldnt be 1080p on X1 when there are other games that can with better graphics.

Sounds like a launch window rushed port to make a buck. Anybody who thinks X1 cant run Ghosts at 1080p is foolish, they just didn't have proper time with the final hardware and instead pushing it back, they rather keep the launch date purely for financial reasons.

Also enough with the lying, sure he may have been on the road but he sure as hell saw all the resolution fuss, just waiting closer to release for damage control, also isnt this the same guy boasting before about 1080p on X1?

-Yep he said it was running on both X1 and ps4 at 1080p, so he was lying or they rushed the game. Confirmed.

Just stop and think... if your plan is to only support developers that can get games to run in 1080p on Xbox One, you aren't going to own very many games.

The difference is that developers use X86 architecture for PC already. Because they already use it for PC means they can squeeze out a lot more power of the consoles already compared to last gen. The developers can learn to optomize better but it isn't going to make a huge improvement like we saw with the PS3.

Just a comparison:
Lets say a welder is used to doing mig welding. His company gives him a special project to use a arc weld for some reason. Because it's different he has to get his technique down so it improves a lot over time. Then the company buys him a new mig welding machine. He already knows the basics and how to get lots out of it. He can get a bit better but he won't improve durastically because he already knows how to get lots out of the machine.

Eonjay, well it's the same logic as those who said they'd only buy exclusives on the PS3 because only PS3 exclusive developers know how to get the most out of the PS3. At least with the PS3 if you go that route, however, you still have a good chance at obtaining a solid gaming library due to Sony have a plethora of franchises and developers to rely on.

If it was a situation of it being rushed then it wouldn't be 1080p on the ps4 either.

Listen, I'm not saying that the xbox one can't run it at 1080p, apart from the fact that every one and their mother knows that the ps4 is a more powerful system , there has to be a reason other than "they didn't put any effort into it".

The ps3 cell and the xbox esram are two completely different things. The cell was never before seen tech, esram has been out for years. I know that it will take time for the devs to fully utilize it but to say that this game can't do 1080p on the xbox one because of 32mb of esram is absurd.

Microsoft has created a poor system, that does not deserve the title nextgen, regardless of how people may want to spin that fact it is becoming more and more obvious daily.

This is the consequence for loosing focus and trying to be a damn media box instead of a gaming system that can do media, e.g. ps4.

By your system, enjoy it, it will have great games and you should be happy about that but do not bash sony because they focused on a gaming system that is obviously going to rip the xbox one a new one when it comes to gaming performance. Blame microsoft for that.

This does not bode well for the Xbone, we have all seen how basic COD ghosts looks yet it cannot run at 1080@60fps.

You could almost forgive it for the BF4 specs as frostbite 3 is next gen but the COD engine certainly is not.

All the money MS has and they have penny pinched the GPU/CPU in favour of Kinect and buying the exclusivity of third party titles.

So glad I cancelled my Xbone pre order and kept the PS4.
BX81  +   830d ago
I think it's a mix of devs not knowing how to optimize the hardware and hardware made hard to dev for. Either way the system can do 1080p native. To be honest even the next cod looks this gen so I'm not stressing over 720 up scaled.

As far as hardware goes the Xbox One and the PS4 are not that far apart so software must be an issue for all these downgraded games .It's like the Xbox One became the PS3 .MS needs to rewrite their codes in order to catch up .Titanfall better be native 1080p other games are hitting that mark so it's not impossible .

This rather proves it's not as much about GPU prowess and more about that terribly sized ESRAM. 32mb is too small for deferred rendering in any higher resolutions (Cause Xbox One really should be able to play crappy COD just fine if it weren't for the bottleneck ESRAM)

Some people are still in denial,I know "JokesOnYou" is at least.

You can't reason with a fanboy,no matter how rational you can be,he will still try HARD to convince himself that his "stuff" is the most powerful in the universe.

So now it's a difficulty in programming or devs being lazy? wasn't that the same excuse Sony fans were making last gen with the PS3? and what did Xbox fanboys do? ..yeah,figures!

The tables are turned this gen Xbox Fanboys,if you can't deal with the heat,don't make stupid excuses or run your mouth wildly,the truth of the matter is,PS4 is more powerful than the XboxOne,end of story.

PC is still the most powerful though,that nobody can argue about that at least.

PC + PS4&WiiU(both for fantastic exclusives) are the way to go next gen(if you have the money I mean).

Now simmer down everyone,the battle is likely over,for the first year at least.

Xbox fans,you can thank the "multimedia" for this,Microsoft wants to push sooo much with the XboxOne that it backfired on what is more important for a console .. GAMING!

I'm definitely getting the PS4 version of COD, then. Bummer, and somewhat perplexing. I had figured that COD should be able to run at 1080p, considering nicer looking games are running at higher res on XB1.

I'm inclined to blame the developers, or possibly hard-to-use architecture... but I would love a no-nonsense explanation from Microsoft. Give it to me straight.

I guess in 3 weeks devs will be free to tell us what the deal is.
vulcanproject  +   830d ago
Well technically 1080p isn't 50 percent more than 720p. PS4 has a 56 percent battlefield 4 resolution lead. But This is something else.

Its a 125 percent increase.

One Hundred and Twenty Five.

That is absolutely enormous. It actually shouldn't be that large really. Xbox one should do better based on the disparity in specs.

What it really suggests to me is that Infinity Ward struggled here to get their engine working properly on Xbox one.

PS4 should always really win but this isn't a 50 or 60 odd percent win you would expect, its a total massacre. Ouch.

I think it might have something to do with Xbox One's EsRAM. If you look at the system requirements for PC it needs a minimum of 6GB for whatever reason (BF4 only needs 4GB minimum). Maybe that's why the Xbox One version has such a low resolution.

Don't get me wrong with the stronger hardware and it's dev friendly architecture I was expecting the PS4 to technically have the superior versions of multiplatform games from day one but 1080p to 720p seems too big of a difference when we assume that effects, details and framerate are identical.

@ jokes:

"ziggurcat you basicly explained exactly why your own theory is flawed"

not sure how it was flawed. if CoD isn't that taxing, then why isn't it 1080p on xbone? there's two possible answers here:

a) it's telling of xbone's actual power, and any corner cutting was the result of weaker hardware.

or (and this is the more hopeful answer)

b) IW just really sucks at making games.

however, it makes no logical sense that the xbone version would have been "rushed" - especially when it had a pretty significant spot during the xbone reveal back in May - compared to the PS4 version... unless the PS4 really is that much faster/easier to develop on or the PS4 really is 50% more powerful as the specs on paper suggest (and we don't even know the PS4's CPU clock speed, either...).

A lot of the comments from you guys are hilarious but I'm not really one to bash for the sake of bashing. The significance of this announcement to me is the solace in knowing that they aren't forcing parity.

I'm freakin ecstatic that with this and BF4 both having different resolutions between the PS4 and X1 version it means the devs aren't caving in to "gaming politics" and actually putting out the games in a form the respective hardware can handle. I was concerned about this for months and have been very vocal about it since the first mention of a possible push towards parity.

I say good job EA and Activision for not letting MSs systems shortcomings be forced on Sony gamers.

With this rumor being true I am now a bit concerned with the other negative rumors that have surfaced from NeoGaf recently. Their validity just went up a notch as they were right about cod, bf and even the driveclub delay.

@Jokes - "Well its a no buy for me because they either rushed it or just didnt put alot of effort into it. The game is not graphically demanding so theres no way it shouldnt be 1080p on X1"

I guess you won't be buying Titanfall either then, but there is a way that makes the difference in resolution explainable, and that's a difference in power. Higher res, better AA, better lighting... if it was a rushed game issue than PS4 wouldn't have these advantages.

@Robear - "Its nothing to do with the "power" of the xbox its just harder to programme for - its like a throw back to 2005 when teams were struggling to utilise the cell properly"

People really need to stop pretending ESRAM is comparable to the Cell in terms of complexity issues. There will be improvement just like there was with the Cell, but the improvement will not be to the same degree.
ABizzel1  +   830d ago


Getting on topic, I know it seems hard to believe that COD is only running at 720p on XBO, but it really depends on what all they're throwing into COD Ghost. Using Black Ops 2, as an example it can really pound GPU's depending on the AA.

Look at these settings

An XBO GPU based on that PC should run BO2 in 1080p, 60fps, 2xMSAA (DEMANDING AA), AO, FXAA, with Medium - High settings

An equivalent PS4 GPU based on that PC should run BO2 in 1080p, 50fps, 8xMSAA (DEMANDING AA), with High settings.

I say "based on that PC" because while the PS4 and XBO have faster RAM, the PC has 1GB of GDDR5 at 96GB/s (which represents the XBO, but XBO has faster RAM than that), and 2GB of GDDR5 153GB/s (which represents the PS4, but PS4 has faster RAM than that). However, the PC has 16GB of DDR3 and a much better CPU.

My guess is the game is 1080p, Ultra settings, 4xAA, and the PS4 can run that easily at 60fps; however, the XBO is going to to struggle, and to get the game flawlessly locked at 60fps they dropped the resolution down to 720p. That's the only explanation I have regarding the resolution, and I'm sure with more time they could have moved it up to 900p, but that's what happens with launch titles.

It is utterly ridiculous to equate the Cell with ESRAM. The desperation is so thick you can cut it with a knife.

While you are asking Rubin about 1080p maybe you should ask EA about the X1 stage demo of BF4.

Want to know something that is funny. Multi platform games ran better on Dreamcast compared to ps2. Games ran better on Xbox over ps2. And Xbox 360 games ran better than ps3. Dreamcast failed, Xbox was a gooD system but couldn't even sneeze at the ps2. The ps3 over time became the system of choice. So who is to say the xbone cannot achieve success? Yes the ps4 is more powerful and I will be getting one. But I will not dog the xbone just cuz of cod and bf4. It is sad to see that the resolutions of these games are the same as current gen and in this day and age, gamers want the best possible experience. The xbone will do fine and their is an audience for that system. I am a gamer and next year everything will be 1080p.

this is unfortunate...and confirms one of the biggest problems i had with the hardware when the consoles were announced...

2005-2012 Xbox 360 600/60fps in every CoD

2013 Xbox One 720/60fps at least the first one...with freaking identical visuals...

I can't believe anyone would find this acceptable...for a $500 brand new machine that is outperformed by 2 year old mid range gpu's...its unbelievable to me, ESPECIALLY in a game as visually unimpressive as Ghosts...

So i guess the ps4 'wins', if you could call it that...even on PS4, ghosts looks like a dated mess...I'm just blown away that they couldn't get the xbox one to run a last generation game at a higher native resolution...
Boody-Bandit  +   829d ago
Final straw for me. I've been on the fence being that I'm a huge Forza fan. I am constantly looking for a hint of anything to purchase an XBOX ONE just to play that one game. But COD @720p is simply unacceptable.

$100 more, less power, proprietary hardware (no existing 360 peripherals compatible with X1) and less value for their online service vs their direct competitor.

All signs point to MS was not initially going to release their new hardware this year. Everything about this hardware seems very rushed. Been there, done that with the 360. I'm not taken that ride again. The money I'm saving not getting an X1 will go to more games for the PS4.

That same eurogamer link? The one that DOESN'T have the developer saying that Call Of Duty is running at 1080p on the X1? Everyone says "IW said its runs at 1080p" but if you actually take the time to read it properly you will notice the only person who says its runs at 1080p is the author of the article, he says "Call Of Duty ghosts will run at 1080p on the X1, IW confirms" but IW doesn't mention 1080p at all in the entire article.

Funny how you tell me that i need to improve my reading skills but you lack the reading skills to tell the difference between a developer saying something and an author of an article saying that the developer said something.

Seems kind of short sighted, no? More difficult to program for PS3 took years to get as good as the inferior Xbox 360. Today the Xbox One is the more difficult platform due to eSram/DDR3. If the PS4 is as simple as devs say, wouldn't logic dictate the Xbox One will see a bigger performance increase than the PS4? How is it the PS4 can only get better and the Xbox One will stand still or get worse?
DevilishSix  +   830d ago
Lets call a spade a spade and stop acting like the X1 architecture is so much different from the 360, cause it's not. Each have a small ERAM buffer. Problem is that MS failed to increase the size The EDRAM is 32mb in the 360 and the X1 has 32mb of ESRAM. IT was fine for 360 but its to small for X1 it should have at least been 42 mb and should have been 56mb. MS screwed up. Thank the now gone Don Mattrick for that one. It is what it is, its to small a frame buffer for true 1080p visuals and thus the added upscaler in X1, but at the end of the day they screwed up. If they planned this then they went the super cheap route.

I don't care much about COD res but this could be a sign of good things to come for PS fans.
PS4 is clearly powerful and easy to develop for which should give us games with not only great graphics, but great gameplay, and more.

Call a spade a spade? The Xbox 360 and PS3 were PowerPC based (Risc). Sure, the devs were used to the eDram, but not eSram and a completely different architecture. The tools used on the previous console are not applicable to x86 so none of them ported over. Now everything is written very much like PC games with the exception of the PS4 using GDDR5 for CPU functions and the Xbox One using eSram to increase the speed of the DDR3 for GPU functions.
johndoe11211  +   830d ago

You are living in a fantasy world. The ps4 hardware is already way ahead of the xbox hardware and that's without devs taking advantage of its optimizations.

When devs begin to max out both systems there will be a very noticeable difference in games. People seem to think that it's only the xbox that has hidden potential. They both have hidden potential but xbox has it on much weaker hardware.
VonBraunschweigg  +   830d ago
Nah Death, PS3 was superior yet harder to program for, X1 is inferior and harder to program for. PS3 games started to outshine 360 games by 2008-2009 (MGS4, WipEout HD, Uncharted 2), X1 games probably won't. Inferior can't become superior no matter how much money you throw at it.

Coming gen even the multiplats will show this, day one by the looks of it. Of course there will be improvements on both platforms through the years, but the gap will probably grow wider.
DevilishSix  +   830d ago
Death the best analogy I can use is a water hose. The 32mb buffer was fine and maintained a steady stream flowing thru it on 360. The X1 has turned the water pressure up but has not increased the hose (32mb buffer) to allow the stream to flow properly and at an optimal rate. Thats the easiest way I can put it bro.

CryofSilence  +   830d ago

32 MB of ESRAM will not balance the disparity between the consoles. The PS4 holds a 600 gigaFLOPS advantage over the Xbox One (for perspective, my 520 GigaFLOPS GPU in my 3 year old laptop can run Battlefield 3 at high settings reasonably well). Here are the other advantages: 384 more GPU cores (1.5x), 16 more ROPS (2x), 6 more compute units (1.5x), and so on. There is no way at all that a slightly higher theoretical* RAM bandwidth will offset that. It's just not physically possible.

The ps4 is $400 without camera, the xbox one is $500 with camera. The ps4 camera is $60.

Now, doing basic math that would mean if you add the cost of the ps4 camera($60) and the ps4($400), that would give you $460. so that would mean the ps4 bundled witth the camera would be $460 and the xbox one would still be $500.

Could you explain what mathematical formulas you used to deduce that with the camera bundled the ps4 would have been the same price or more than the xbox one?

^Excellent points CryofSilence.

The biggest pitfall of the Xbone will ALWAYS be the GPU. Even if it had GDDR5 like the PS4, it won't matter since the GPU is weaker. It has NOTHING to do with how the system uses RAM. However, it's even more saddening on top of the weaker GPU, it uses slower DDR3 and that bottleneck 32mb of ESRAM (fast, but severely limited in size.)

While on the PS4 end, developers are having a field day with that big gigantic pool of fast GDDR5 RAM 5-8GB (whatever it is) without the limitations of that small frame buffer, coupled with a more powerful GPU (think HD7870).

The specifications of both systems told anybody with any sort of computer knowledge that the PS4 is more powerful.

In 2-3 years time it won't matter, it will always be the same.
BX81  +   830d ago
@ johndoe I can only assume since the 1st kinect was more than $100, the next kinect will at least be $100 at launch. Thus the $100 extra or maybe more depending how MS sees it. I personally would like a kinect less bundle but I'll pay an extra $100 for some extra features. Here's is the way I look at it. All these people saying the ps4 is only $400 don't get the camera, and that's ok. Sony doesn't believe in their camera as much as ms does. Who knows where it'll go. He'll Sony pushed 3d gaming hard as hell I don't hear a peep about it now. I pay $500 for xo because I can afford it and I prefer the online on Xbox live over psn. Things can change, just like Sony charging to play online. Idk how many times I read about Sony gamers thinking it was stupid to pay to use ur net you already pay for just to get online. Either way that's my long ass response. I'm getting both consoles. Walmart is saying delivery for both consoles by x mas if anyone is interested.

Also I'm not saying the ps4 w camera is $500 I'm saying the Xbox without camera is $400 or less.

Kleptic  +   829d ago
yeah, i'm not a developer...but whats pretty much unanimously agreed upon is both the ps4 and xbox one are mostly gpu bottlenecked...which is saying something, considering the PS4's is very clearly a more powerful unit...

and this all makes sense now when you go back through the initial announcements...the first penciled in specs of the ps4 were to only use 4gb of ram...from a cost vs. performance balance standpoint...that makes sense...the designers felt 4gb was all it really needed...however, the OS ended up growing to the point where it ate up a lot of that 4gb pool...and devs complained...Sony listened...its very likely MS went through a similar situation...

but on the other side...the gpu's weren't changed...which weren't all that memory starved to begin with...the xbox one's theoretical specific use memory bandwidth benefits doesn't amount to can store all kinds of instructions in ram as long as you want, but it doesn't matter when a cpu and/or gpu can't read it fast enough to begin with...which is seemingly exactly whats happening...

and thats the other side...both machines use cpu's that, literally, have more in common with high end smart phones than dedicated gaming devices...yet another reason that memory bandwidth is something both systems have to spare...concrete per core processing speed and gpu output are whats limited

Exactly. I don't see many Xbox One gamers feeling sad that they are playing 1080p upscaled and not native. The game experience will not change from resolution, it is impacted by how we interact/control the game and by the people we play with. It's weird that some PS4 fans think resolution is key yet don't move to PC which is capable of much, much higher resolutions than the PS4 or Xbox One.
VonBraunschweigg  +   830d ago

vigilante_man  +   830d ago
Microsoft have built an amazing upscaler - and now we know why. They also want to upscale movies for 4K output and have included a 4k-compatible HDMI lead (smart move btw).

Games will look brighter than PS4 games because PS4 will have more depth and realistic textures. XB1 will have to brighten things up to disguise the disparity.

Both systems will be amazing compared to last gen. It is just a surprise that PS4 is now confirmed as the most powerful. It will take XB1 developers and system engineers 2-3 years to get to current PS4 standards. By that time PS4 will have become even more optimised.

Lets thank all devs for having the balls to go for it when we all thought they would not!

exactly, with so called next gen tech at the very least irrelevant of the esram, the cpu,nect gen gpgpu and 8gb of ddr3 ram should be more then enough to run cod at native 1080p!

And the PS3 situation was nothing like x1 esram situation, back then everyone knew PS3 was more powerfull! but with X1 everyone is knows its a fraud of a next gen console! granted when they get to grips with the esram performance will improve,but i doubt by much.

Time to wake up and smell the cofee guys,just remember even if developers get to grips with x1 what makes u think PS4 optimizations will just freeze? the devs will get better at using the PS4 strengths which everyone even microsoft know 30,40,50% power diiference? whatever it may be will show even more!
And take into account the GDDR5 ram bonuses and quickly any unbiased gamer will know PS4 is the horse to bet on this generation.

Sorry but already you can see the difference, the gap will only get wider as the gen goes on, as games become bigger,and more complex which is what always happens, the icing on the cake will be indeed the wiiu version turns out to be native 720p since wiiu and x1 share allot of design features, that will be like a 12 inch slap with nintendo's sausage in microsofts face!

What really going to be the kicker is when it comes out that Forza is truly 720p, up scaled to 1080p! All these things give credence to the idea that the Xbox1 main focus was never really games to begin with, it was the media side they have been interested in. Right now their media side functions are operating in 1080p, they have 3 different OS, one that is supposedly heavily vested on the media side of the Xbox1. It wouldn't surprise me if their cloud service wasn't meant for the gaming side of the Xbox1, but for the media side of Xbox1.

Sure Microsoft are going to invest in games, but truthfully I think that's only to hold onto the fanbase they already have, and pick up some stragglers along the way.
2cents  +   830d ago
What a balls-up this is.

How sad that people are judging MS against COD's lack of commitment to the platform. These are current gen games ported to run on the new gen. We all knew by the info that the PS4 is a joy to code on. The Xbox One is now the more complex platform, clearly due to the rushed and buggy SDK,s, sh1tty drivers and a general confusion from MS has led to this. But there is no stopping the powerhouses of BF and COD, cookie cutter games that rinse and repeat every year with hardly any deviation from the existing model.

As I said many months ago, I was never concerned about the capability of the PS4, but there is much doubt surrounding the state of affairs at MS. Unfortunately though, this news will be framed in gold and touted for the next few weeks as the definition of the coming generation. COD have effectively hammered the second nail into the Xbox Ones coffin (first from BF).

MS you put your faith in the wrong developers, who cares about exclusive content and early access to stuff when they know that they have an inferior product. You should have spent your money on more coders to get your SDK's and drivers finalised many moons ago so that these lazy devs could have actually made something special for you. Now your stuck with touting Forza as the only AAA 1080p game. Fools.

This is COD for crying out loud and the X1 is running this game at Last gen resolutions...?

and that's just that one, We've also got Battlefield which is far more impressively technically and Its still running at 720p on the X1... Killer Instinct, and Dead Rising 3.

You might want to consider that there may be more to it than bad drivers and development tools. The PS4 is undeniably more powerful, and no amount of ESRAM or cloud computing will offset that advantage. Note: this figure does not show the updated theoretical bandwidth limit of 204 gb/s for ESRAM; however, that is not nearly enough to balance it.

Gran turismo 5 a last gen game which is years old now was practically native 1080p, granted it was 1280 by 1080p and up-scaled to 1920 by 1080p, and at 60fps, it has dynamic lighting, dynamic weather, dynamic day night cycles,LOTS OF VARIED RACE TYPES, rally,nascar,kart, etc and again i repeat its a current gen game and gt6 looks to improve on everything, so imagine what gt7 on ps4 will do?

Soc5  +   829d ago
Yeah, well it started to look really bad when the guy (Don Mattrick) who was in charge of the planning and development of the thing jumped ship before it was even released! He couldn't even stay around to see it launched, that's crazy, and should have concerned a lot of people.

It seems that whoever was in charge of keeping an eye on sonys plans really dropped the ball, because it looks like they were caught with their pants down big time. I mean just as an outsider looking in it looks like Microsoft thought Sony was launching later, at a higher price, with drm, and with a weaker console than they imagined and they were wrong in all counts. It couldn't get worse.

Their stragety was poor on all accounts. It's almost like someone at Microsoft(really working for Sony) was feeding them fake intelligence on everything and they bought it.

And now it looks really really bad that you have launch games released on both systems that run better on a competitors console at a much cheaper price! How do you spin that?

It's not like in the old days of xbox and the 360 where the people in charge were trying to push boundaries this time around I think they wanted to make a profit sooner and went for a cheaper mainstream product fueled by hype ala the wii. And it's backfiring because gamers expect more and Sony pulled one over on MS.

Have to admit at first I was disappointed and annoyed but not being too attached to one console I decided to just go with ps4 for now for lots of reasons (one being those horrible used car salesman reveals early in the year that left a bad taste in my mouth) But for xbox fanatics this must be killing them.

Remember the XB1 also has a less powerful GPU compared to PS4. So we should not expect games to be of the exact same quality, graphics wise.

There is more of a difference this time compared to PS3/360. Microsoft will make millions from Kinnect 2 and casual audience once their advertising kicks in. That is where the XB1 strength lies.

In time XB1 may prove an awesome kit, just not the best for pure gaming.

mistertwoturbo  +   830d ago
Native means that's the true resolution the system is rendering. Upscaled means they rendered it at a lower resolution then projected it to the higher resolution on the tv. 720p is 921,600 pixels and 1080p is 2,073,600 pixels. That's more than twice the resolution the X1 is outputting. The difference is in clarity, less aliasing, and sharper everything.

@The Twelve

Agreed, even that was not for long, shortly after vince zampella the main guy at respawn tweeted that it was just the first game in the series which was exclusive, and that the sequels were not! also by the way he worded it, it seems like even they were not aware of this news till recently, most likely a back room deal made by ea at the last minute to please m$ due to the bad bf4 news! LOLOLOL seriously xbots need to realise they are being taken for a ride, xbox1 will be a entertainment first console, and kinnect casual gamer focused second, and then finally a core gamer console third! i called it ages ago, after seeing the wii success with casual's m$ has been itching for that money! hence the total lack of core gamer focus the last 3 years on xbox 360, and the complete focus on kinnect!

M$ is just roping in the core to build that initial install base, and then when they are ready they will most likely bring back all those garbage policies and concentrate on kinnect and casual gamers! its known as a bait and switch ladies and gentlemen, just remember i called it, see you doubters in a few years when your mad!

Granted its just my opinion, and a prediction,so don't bite my head off guys! but i wouldn't put any of it past Microsoft! just look at the x1 reveal, pure games console? my ass!! like i said before Sony have always put the core gamers first!!!! this is fact,take it or leave it!! i just wish the xbots would wake up! i feel sorry for them since they are all gamers like you and i! and deserve better!

Its sucks But I doubt its "sad news."
come_bom  +   830d ago
I think the X1 could handle Call of Duty: Ghosts at 1080p, but at this moment, the X1 is so badly optimized due to Microsoft's various 180's, that they had to lower the games settings to get it too run properly.

I honestly think at this moment the X1 is not ready to be released to the public. There are way too many fu**ups, Microsoft needs to fire the people responsible for the Xbox devision and get new blood, people that understand what they're doing.

I just have to laugh, this isn't about believing the Hive-mind! lol, its coming to terms with the increasingly growing number of quantifiable facts that the PS4 is more powerful. if launch games hat are multiplatform are showing these type of disparities then just imagine what the end game will be like 2-5 years down the line?

And you said that you wont buy it because the game isn't 1080p...

Looks like you'll be just down to Forza as of right now, because nothing else from MS's stable runs that high natively...

Not Ryse, DR3, or all the slew of multiplatform games launching with the console. And its gonna be funny if DF does the inner findings and tech breakdowns and finds that Forza 5 is upscaled from 720p to 1080p...

I guess you get what you pay for... $500 and under performing! Good luck with your console. i'm sure you'll only enjoy Forza.

Honestly, I know you'd think it's a sad day for XB1 fans, but not really. 1. Being as NO ONE on this forum can actually tell the difference between upscaled and native 1080p when playing anyway...that point is invalid (as I have been saying since day one) not to mention that XB1 has an advanced upscaler so perhaps using that instead of being native leads to reason #.. 2. Perhaps the reduced resolution will free up the system to provide some other graphical enhancements (and since you still can't tell the difference between native and upscaled...this will mean it actually looks better.) But MOST IMPORTANTLY #3...since you can't tell the difference graphically...the fact that XB1 will have ACTUAL dediated servers not just pretend ones like KZ and PS4's COD...the online experience will be MUCH MUCH MUCH MUCH better...As shown by the comparisson between BF4 on PS4 and XB1...XB1 looks just as good if not would XB1 fans like native 1080p sure, as long as it doesn't take away from anything they need it? Absolutely not....Does PS4 need a better network instead of investing fully in a machine that can ONLY do native 1080p....ABSOLUTELY ...especially since it doesn't create any REAL advantage. Cry all you want, you know it's true, either way I'm a true gamer and will have fun playing the games I like

Your point is invalidated as I routinely notice those differences. Next time don't speak in absolutes. Then look at the fact it is pushing these pixels at a better frame rate than the xbox1 is doing at a lower resolution and you see where the problem is corvus. Even better is the fact the console that is pushing more pixels and preforming better is 100$ cheaper. If need be Sony can buy dedicated servers, where as MS is stuck with its consoles hardware. So you were willing to think they would gimp the ps4 version of games a while ago, but now that the tables have turned you believe they will give the xb1 better textures?? I don't like to be one of those guys, but you telling me what I can and can't see is dumbfounding.

Trying to make it sound as if online on PS4 is practically unplayable or something.

So what in THIS UNIVERSE does the EVIL Sony console need to do for you to concede even an INCH that the holy relic (Xbox One) could actually be less capable a machine?

Is someone threatening you or your family? That if you EVER give anything but praise to this one company/product/line of products you will pay some price?

:/ so puzzling...

I detest many of Microsoft's business practices on principal alone, but I can do it like it's nothing, watch!

See there was this one Xbox One trailer showing all the voice commands and the Snap functions and the camera use for a Skype call and switching between everything and even recording and uploading gameplay, was an incredible trailer and if it actually worked that smoothly it would be awesome.

they most probably had something playable and very unoptimised on PS4 since they have PS4 dev kits (again decoding Zampella's tweets). in any case we've all heard of how easy it is to run PC code on PS4.

I mean at the end of the day they are a multiplatform dev. they probably have Wii U kits as well.

Statix  +   830d ago
Hmm, you and I can joke, but Activision really has been loyal partners with Microsoft for many years now. For Microsoft to literally be supporting Activision and Call of Duty's DIRECT COMPETITION (i.e., EA's Titanfall and Battlefield), one must logically assume that Activision can't be totally happy about that.

I started getting suspicious when Microsoft, for the first time in years, allowed EA's Battlefield and Titanfall to be shown at their E3 press conference, instead of Activision's COD. Call of Duty has been demonstrated live on Microsoft's mainstage for years now; it's become a perennial expectation for E3. But not this year, for some reason.

I can imagine, if I were an employee at Activision and am hearing about all these deals Microsoft is doing with EA, I would be exclaiming something along the lines of, "Wtf? We've been loyal partners with Microsoft and supporters of Xbox for almost a decade, and they pay us back by promoting all of our rival's triple-A FPS titles?"

No it has nothing to do with that. The whole esram thing is the same as the xbox 360 and what did people say about the 360? That it's easy to develop for. It's just the fact is that the x1 gpu just isn't that great with only 1.3tflops and bottlenecks itself with ddr3
Loki86  +   830d ago
You clearly know nothing, it has to with the fact that 3rd party devs just got the kits last year and have not had enough time to work with eSRAM and the tools for the X1. It will get much better post-launch, look at a game like Ryse running at a stable framerate for proof.

EDIT: 360 had 10MB of eDRAM which was not enough that it would cause a huge development problem even at launch.

I know well enough that it's complete BS to try and spin it as being hard to develop for.

It's ZERO SURPRISE that the X1 can't output at a higher resolution being bottle-necked by that measly 32mb and slower DDR3, AND a weaker GPU.

What's so hard to understand? There's no magic sauce or fairy dust that will add compute units to the X1's GPU.

WTF does my previous posts in favor of the XB1 has to do with my decision now? I haven't post on N4G for months and was dead set on getting a XB1 thinking that games like Battlefield 4, COD Ghost would be similar in performance in addition of the XB1 having the launch games that I want. Now, seeing that the disparity that is so one sided in favor of the PS4, I can't justify of what MS is doing charging $100 more for a weaker system, even with the inclusion of Kinect 2.0.

90% of my games are all third party games and I have most of them for X360 this generation because it performs better; thus, that is one of the huge reason I like the X360 more than the PS3.

I was dead set on getting a XB1 thinking the performance would be close but it is clearly not the case now. There is no way I can justify paying for a system that can't even handle COD (which looks like crap) at 1080P. There is just no excuse.

No_Limit! I'm clutching pearls right now after reading that from you!!! This is a first i'm reading something like this from anyone. No one here has ever admitted that they are changing camps after being dead set on one platforms. that's crazy! On N4G you're actually one of the first to defect to PS like this and not being afraid to admit it! Bubs for the honesty.

Well... hopefully one day devs will overcome the ESRAM with better dev tools. But inferior specs will keep inferior all gen.

Down the line you can get a XB1 with a price cut for a Halo/Forza fix. That's my plan at least.

(and really surprising to see you saying it... it even sounds trolling, lol)

WHAT??? no limit cancelling x1 I know the sky is falling now.
No_Limit  +   830d ago

It wasn't my decision to cancel the XB1, MS made that decision for me over that past couple of months. First, it was Killer Instinct (everyone thought it was 1080P, then downgrade to 720P). Then it was Ryse @900P. News came out that Titanfall might be 720P instead of the promised 1080P, and finally, actual gameplays of Battlefield 4 and COD Ghost are the straws that broke the camel's back. I mean, it is one thing to to perform worst at low resolution but when the competing brand offer something that performs 50% or more better at $100 less, it is not a contest. MS should now really consider selling a Kinect-less SKUY for $299 because the spec that is inside the XB1 is ancient hardware, man. They are not Apple that can get away with robbery like this.

After 8 long years of favoring the Xbox brand over the PS brand, I am heading back home to the PS brand like it was before. Luckily, I already had my PS4 reserved at Best Buy a long time ago for the just in case scenario and I am glad I did.

Some bad choices were made with their choice in hardware. esram is choking everything out and I don't think there is any patch that will address this issue. It is a hardware problem. I also am no longer pre-ordering the X1, not so much because of this but more because they have known that this is going to be an issue and tried to hide it from everyone until the money was spent and the base all had their systems in house. It's also coming out that all of the UI footage that we have seen has been faked. They are hoping that the masses are under informed. I think the funniest thing that no one has mentioned is that the the Xbox one and the Xbox 360 version of Ghost will essentially be the exact same game, same engine and same resolution. Welcome to next gen! yeah right. See you on the PSN!
esemce  +   830d ago
If you want Fable, Forza, Halo, Kinect and timed (payed for) exclusives choose MS.

If you want REAL exclusives from 1st party devs with a focus mainly on games that would be supported for longer and Naughty Dog choose Sony.

For me it's simple as the only console to have GT, Killzone, Team Ico, GOW, Uncharted/TLOU will be from Sony and that's enough for me to make it essential.
Mkai28  +   830d ago
Very disappointing indeed, COD has or had more preorders on the X1. It pisses me off to that they have that much money but chose a weak GPU so they can make a profit on day one. Cancel you preorders ppl, they need to be punished..
Kujii  +   830d ago
Wow. For the first time in the comments section when I read "pre-order canceled" I know people actually mean it.
boneso82  +   830d ago
Well done no_limit, for having the common sense to choose the better value, more powerful console, and the balls to admit, on N4G no less, that you have changed your mind after months of Xbox allegiance.

If only you could get through to some of the Xbox lovers on here that are still in denial and making excuse after excuse to defend the company and console they unconditionally yet irrationally love. I don't get it, I really really don't get it. How can anyone be so stubborn, so hard headed, so completely blind as to not see what you now see, and that a lot of us already have seen.

Welcome back to the darkside, good for you!

This may sounds incredibly sad, but I think I am going to go (on Halloween night, early) to an Xbox One demo and tell every one of the PR guys that I am a diehard Xbox fan - and I am going to cancel, or sell unopened, my Xbox One.

And I am going to be very clear - that it is because Microsoft doesn't care for gamers.

I know they'll refute that, but I will say "if they truly did, they'd have made hardware capable of parity"

IT CANT ACHIEVE PARITY - I'm jumping ship.

After the PS4 reveal in feb I was sure MS would come out with something amazing. The first few minutes in I got excited about the "Turn on this.." voice stuff but it went downhill from there.

But there is a silver lining for all die hard Microsoft fans. If they actually stick to their word and follow Sony's lead with pushing and supporting their studios this time around, instead of closing them all and splashing out on exclusive deals, we may see some amazing games further down the line.

Price cuts, great games and no Kinnect may even bring in the Sony fans. We do all love great games, after all!!

Why isn't CoD at least 900p on the Xbone? With BF4, both versions run at 60fps; 900p for PS4 and 720p for Xbone. So for ghosts, the discrepancies should have stayed constant i.e. 60fps with 1080p on PS4 and 900p on Xbone. It's surprising that it's not the case. It's evident that the ps4 is the stronger hardware, but I'm just wondering if there is some lazy coding at play here as well. Anyways, can't wait for the 29th. Greatness Awaits.

COD on 360 was upscaled to 1080 and it looked and performed better than the ps3.

just sayin' though.
vividi  +   830d ago
It is common knowledge that the ps3 COD were the bad ports, seems like things are changing for next gen
NaAsAr  +   830d ago
agreed. i was just stating an observation.
esemce  +   830d ago
When it comes to many 3rd party titles the PS4/XB1 will be essentially getting ports of the PC code. So whichever console has the most raw power and is easy the dev on will probably get the better version.

So take Watchdogs:

PC>PS4>XB1>WiiU simples.
Idba  +   830d ago
But now the ps4 version is native 1080p
amnalehu  +   830d ago
The irony is that COD Ghost on 360 will probably perform as good and look as good as the xbox one version.

People saying Xbox One can't get 1080p ? then just go and see Metal Gear Solid V gameplay , it looks better than CoD and still runs identical on both the PS4 and the Xbox One , I would even say 100% , it's just a matter of how lazy Infinity Ward is

* Disagree all you want but I will inform everyone that both consoles are the same , it's just a matter of how lazy a developer is

do not slander kojimas name, when we get more info on mgs5 because of this whole 720p debacle, pretty sure people will start to tweet kojima questions regarding this matter. If you know anything about metal gear you would now that playstation is the baby's daddy and chances are the playstation version will be superior.
IHassounah  +   830d ago
I still think Kojima and his team made a great job and weren't lazy
C-H-E-F  +   830d ago
Do you truly believe that Kojima will nerf MGSV in its entirety for the likes of the Xbox? Idk if you've noticed but with every version of MGS, Kojima pushes the engine he uses so much that with the next iteration of MGS he has to create a BRAND NEW game engine. With that being said the PS4 has 50% more power graphically and you think he will lay off of that? Kojima is a perfectionist you better be grateful if he doesn't cancel the xox version because it can't look like he imagined it would.
bromtown  +   830d ago
What I don't get is Microsoft have been the ones touting the possibility of future 4K gaming on it's console, whereas Sony have just said "Maybe, but unlikely - we'll see" and MS can't even get a multi generation Call of Duty game to run in native 1080p!

If this disparity isn't just down to the Xbox's supposedly (at the moment)inferior dev tools then they are pretty screwed.
ambientFLIER  +   830d ago
I have no doubt there will be 4K games on the xbox. Simple, downloadable ones. For example, geometry wars 2 is native 1080p/60fps on the xbox 360 (and looks stunning). I don't think the xbox one will struggle much to play that game at 4K/30fps.

And thats the pre-order star from Microsoft, i wonder if consumers who bought/will buy both systems will trade their COD pre-orders based on this..
pabadamus1  +   830d ago
Oh boy! Well...we all know that both versions of the game will sell well and people will enjoy themselves. Ultimately that is what counts. If this iteration has a good single player and reviews well I will pick it up. Otherwise it will solely be Battlefield and Killzone come the 15th.
SmokingMonkey  +   830d ago
This took way to long to confirm.

EXVirtual  +   830d ago
Well, I knew this would get confirmed sooner rather than later.
2 things.
1. How in the name of hell could the XBO version be 720p? It should be running at 900p native at LEAST. Ryse is and it's much more demanding.
2. This basically debunks RTU's 'sources' about the PS4 version of COD ghosts running at 720p.
If we're already seeing this much of a gap in power at launch, then I can't imagine what it'll be like in a few years.
Just check NeoGAF, they're already on meltdown.

@ Hassounah: It's a racing game with static environments and baked lighting. There's your 60fps. Wake me up when Forza finally gets dynamic lighting, night racing, real rendered clouds, and real rendered environments.
