PS4 Vs Xbox One: in praise of the ludicrous, magnificent COD: Ghosts resolution wars

You have to admire his honesty. Infinity Ward executive producer Mark Rubin there, setting some corners of the internet aflame with one nonchalantly-phrased, specially extended tweet confirming a minor difference between the PS4 and Xbox One versions of Call Of Duty: Ghosts.

Most people might have seen this, shrugged, and probably moved on with their lives. But many didn’t. In an unprecedented piece of timetabling for the games industry, we’re about to see a new PlayStation and a new Xbox arrive within days of each other, and Sony and Microsoft are battling over each and every sale. This stuff matters.

From the same magazine that gave us this cover:

'The difference is hardly noticeable' OK

xHeavYx1545d ago

This picture gives you a good example of the "minor difference"

I Think Edge is trying to put down the fire they started with the PS4 as your nex gen console cover

NewMonday1545d ago

the new pre-order charts show people do care with shifts in BF4 and CoD sales in favor of the PS4, and it's not a full week of the news yet.

Angels37851545d ago

Spread these to their respected fanboys in these types of articles. Discorage this behavior!

sigfredod1545d ago (Edited 1545d ago )

Actually i don't think so, only to lower the flame a little, but on the article they still sustain their affirmation

RickHiggity1545d ago

@Angels3785 is right. How old are you guys? 13? 14?

ambientFLIER1545d ago (Edited 1545d ago )

Heavy -

Give me a break, that picture doesn't tell us shit. It all depends on how good the upscaler is on the xbox and whether the 720P allowed the developers to have a better framerate or extra effects. Only a direct side by side comparison will show us.

GameNameFame1545d ago

Just turn down your PC resolution to 720p. Tell me that is 'minor'.

My eyes can't see half the stuff correctly. So blurry

mewhy321545d ago

The difference in 720p and 1080p is a big deal. No matter how you try and spin it.

3-4-51544d ago

huge difference from that chart/graph.

Can't wait until launch so we can start getting all the full real info about everything.

"Microsoft, meanwhile, plays the role of the blundering, but filthy rich, corporate giant – first announcing a console built around what it wants, then quickly amending those plans when it realised no-one else did. It’ll succeed by way of buying up format exclusives and spending whatever it takes on marketing."

This blurb pretty much sums up what so many feel about MS and the X1.

n4rc1545d ago

Jesus... Sony is just as much a corporate giant.. And what about sony buying the rights for bf3 and ac4 to gain dlc early?

Lemme guess.. Its OK for Sony to do that, but if ms pays for cod dlc.. Its bad...

Its so blatantly obvious the double standard people hold in their minds..

And youll miss the fact that x1s were still in high demand even when "everyone" hated it..

GribbleGrunger1545d ago (Edited 1545d ago )

I posted this on Gaff for their appraisal. It's going to be an entertaining few hours.

What people don't seem to understand is that they're viewing those comparison gifs on a monitor. What they need to do is 'view image' and if they have Firefox, enlarge the image to something approaching a 40" TV. Then and only then will it hit them! Jaggies on jaggies off.

GribbleGrunger1545d ago (Edited 1545d ago )

Here's one such gif. Don't forget to enlarge it, and you too will be enlightened:

Pintheshadows1545d ago (Edited 1545d ago )

You can see the difference without enlarging the image.

The easiest thing to look for is the text on the weapon model.

DoesUs1545d ago

LOL. Like i said "no one will notice". Suppose they won't notice the price difference aswell?

Oh you Edge.

1080p vs Dedicated Servers

svoulis1545d ago

All versions were confirmed for Dedicated Servers.

Try again.

Oh, and here.

Pintheshadows1545d ago

What amuses me more is even though one is clearly better than the other the game looks terrible either way.

n4rc1545d ago

Lol.. No it wasn't..

Ps4 is using some hybrid p2p setup with some servers for match making... Your game is still being hosted on some random dudes ps4

n4rc1542d ago

"Will use a hybrid setup of dedicated servers and listen servers"

Thanks for the link that proves my point.. Guess you didn't read more then the headline... It was only one line down lol

svoulis1542d ago


Please go look up what a Hybrid server actually is . It is in fact a dedicated server. In the same way that on XO you will still have 10 yr olds screaming in your ear.

Why not both?

Enemy1545d ago

And the dedicated servers card fails you once more.

bobsmith1545d ago

People saying its not that big a deal probably because its just the yearly cod but what if it was gta v this would be huge I bet

DestinyHeroDoomlord1545d ago

Not many like to admit they like cod, which is why it's a big deal

bobsmith1545d ago

gta v would look crazy in 1080p compared to 720p though think about that

Sci0n1545d ago (Edited 1545d ago )

I know PS4's launch will be huge but I have a feeling it just got a whole new crap load of people ready to cancel there X1 preorders and crash the stores for them PS4's lol.

HardcoreDaBoss1545d ago

no not really at all. Most people dont pay attention to the resolution of a game unless there pc nerds who care about specs only. Oh and console fan girls.
