CoD: Ghosts on Xbox One Has Frame Rate Issues And Is The Main Reason Not To Buy says Ex IGN Editor

Xbox One version of Call of Duty: Ghosts suffers from nasty frame rate issue, according to Jeremy Conrad.

Conrad further went on to add that FPS drops from 60 to 50 FPS and is reason to not buy it (PS the 720p game has worse drops) (Call of Duty: Ghosts, Xbox One)

If true then shocking considering it already runs at a lower frame rate 1280x720p as opposed to 1920x1080p. How could IW mess up so badly?


Yeah i heard even the PC version is suffering from framerate drops. Another stellar job on IW's part /s.

Game is not very optimized on PC compared to previous versions so I'm not very shocked that both PS4/XB1 also suffer from this issue. Random FPS drops for no real reason.

My prediction - IW wants to move on from Call of Duty but Activision wont let them. So, they figure if they can botch it up enough, people will stop buying it and they don't have to make it anymore. I kid; but imagine how non-inspired the IW developers must feel.

Are the people at IW the same people who were there back when the Modern warfare games had come out?

How is it that dispite hardly updating the engine, their having such problems.
I could unstand if hey were trying to push the graphics, but they are not.

It's amazing the amount of spin that I'm reading in these comments. Blaming the devs LOL. It's the same ol' argument that the PS3 camp used to use. Wow talk about a flip flop. At 720p the PS4 could run this little game at 120fps.

The PC, PS4, and Xbox One allegedly have frame rate drops. From what the former editor states it is from 60 to 50 fps. Is it safe to assume the games goes from running at 60fps steadily down to 50fps? I can't see a 10fps drop being very noticable. Shadowfall isn't locked either. It has a range between 30 to 60fps. Why is this an issue then?
Deividas  +   706d ago | Well said
This has nothing to do with hardware sunshine, this is a dev issue through and through. I play it on PC with my R9 280X which gets a steady 60fps without a drop on Ultra for Battlefield 4, but I get random drops to like 31-40 fps on COD? This is a dev issue. Its not just a console problem.

@death framerate drops are very normal especially on pc because the stronger gpus that most people and I stress most, fall in the range that they can hit 60fps on max settings but its not sustainable. When you have frame drops from 60-50 its not a huge deal but it does cause screen tearing. Even being able to play at 80 fps and it drops to 60 or 70 causes tearing. That's why ppl use v sync to cap the fps. More fps is not better if its not stable. Now that people are caring more about fps they are seeing the normal issues with it. Those issues been around forever and nothing new all games that are demanding have them. Unless you have a gpu that gives you minimal performance at that rate it will never be stable. Those gpus cost 300-1k dollars and out price consoles themselves.

I don't think it's IW wanting to move on from COD since GHOST 2 has already been confirmed. That's 2 years away.

Maybe it's time Activision opens up the purse and invest in a newer engine for their top money making franchise.

WORSE framerate dips on Xbox One at 720p than on PS4 at 1080p.

Dear god, it sounds like it needs to be sub HD on Xbox One to run properly.

At least if worse comes to worse they could shave off 10 percent resolution on PS4 and it'll run much smoother and hardly make much difference, if they do that to Xbox One it would be sub HD.

Can confirm PC Version Is VERY stuttery, Am doing a playthrough for shits and giggles for my yt channel, Its not unplayable but the framerate really never leaves 60FPS but it Consistently has "Spikes" like milliseconds long that make the gameplay stuttery as hell.

Also theres a graphical glitch on the water in one of the levels.

The Loading videos cut out sound regularly and it takes you out of the experience completely as it stutters over and over whole seconds.

But one thing I will note about this game. JESUS the texture resolution is VERY HIGH, the shaders aren't that great but the texture resolution itself is up there with the crisis games. Way High.

Can still tell it was designed for consoles though.

Game is something like 40 gigs. There are low res things here but overall they did a nice job on texturing.

No doubt they would look 10X better on an actual nextgen engine.

Speaking of that. The tessellation in this game is pretty sweet too, the underwater scenes really stand out the geometry on some of the objects is just ridiculously detailed.

In conclusion the game sucks, its fun for about the first 3 hours, I have taken a break because I got bored of the mobs of enemies.

Story, 5
Gameplay 3
Graphics 4
Tesselation 9
Textures 10
Shaders 2

overall 4.5

keabrown79  +   705d ago
I wonder if things like this will start to become more common. I mean at this point you are making "in same cases" as many as 5 different versions of the same game - 360, PS3, Xbox One, PS4, WiiU. All of which have different development tools and tricks to get them to run well. I'd have to think this is going to mean that games will be tested for bugs less and more issues will slip through the cracks. Kind of scary if you think about it.

I bet all the Xbox fans bashing the PS4 for "not being powerful enough to handle CoD at 1080p 60fps" feel pretty silly now seeing that all platforms are suffering from this problem. I said it was a developer issue from the start, there's no way a game that looks that crappy would have problems maintaining 60fps on next gen consoles and PC.

Edit: Are current gen consoles experiencing this issue, or is it next gen and PC exclusive?

when it comes to consoles, all of these cross generation games are going to have problems on the xbox one especially.

Once we are past the ported games things will get much better. The new gen hasnt even started, yet people love to claim they know the outcomes already.
(Not you Lukas) I agree with what you say. I'ts just sad.

Im the least bit interested in these cookie cutter games. I want games that have been made for the platform. ie. Second Son, Shadowfall, Ryse, Sunset overdrive etc.

Not these mass market annual turds.
Considering they tried to make this game for 6 platforms concurrently, is impressive in its scope, but crap in its execution.
Visiblemarc  +   706d ago
It's just that people are speculating. You yourself are speculating, in predicting things will improve beyond cross generational titles.

What stands out for most, is just simply the power gap. Sure games will probably perform better when they don't spend time on older console versions, but it's also safe to assume the performance gap between consoles will carry over too. So if xb1 suddenly starts hitting improved resolutions, you can bet ps4 will have enough left over power for them to add features, and actually, that may widen the visual gap between them for people who claim resolution isn't noticeable.
LonDonE  +   706d ago
ryse was not made for next gen x1 from the ground up! it was originally a xbox 360 game for kinnect LMAO! hence why the game play reveal looked like a quick time event mash up! its in no way a game made ground up!
2cents  +   706d ago
I'm basing my comment of what I have seen with the games that are designed for the Xbox one, I've played Ryse and Forza and they look and feel like next gen games. Kinect sports felt like a next gen game.

Cod, bf4 assasins creed, etc are not next gen games. They are cross platform. This is where the problem lies, the games are ported to, not developed for.

When you look at the spec difference of the two generations there is no way that there won't be an increase in quality across the board. 512mb ram to 8gb ram
Tricore to 8core processor etc.

I'm not making up a pipe dream speculation. I'm making an educated prediction.

If your concerned that I'm trying to say the Xbox is going to be as powerful as the PS4, don't worry, I'm not. PS4 has a very comfortable journey ahead of it and will reamin the more powerful console when it comes to specs.


Yes it was a 360 original, but it was shifted to be developed solely for the X1, so technically it is a x1 game. All resources have been focused on getting the best from a single platform, that being the X1. I'm glad your laughing your ass off about this, it just proves to me that you are a fanboy. It's ok though, my enjoyment of Ryse is no way effected by your snobbery.

While the Xbox faithful were salivating at the last "PS4 Has CoD FPS Issues" article, the sensible among us knew that clearly the X1 version would suffer the same or worse fate. No way weaker, more complicated hardware would run that code more efficiently than a PS4 would.

I guess the faithful are back to chasing clouds and fapping over MisterXmedia's drivel for the time being.

Whatzzz the buzzz??? I must admit that my CoD history began with CoD 4 and ended with CoD W@W, and I am far from praising anything what happened to the series since, but come on! The game has not released yet on the new consoles. BF4 Beta ran on my desktop struggeling to achieve stable 40 fps and now I have 60 fps allmost all the time.
When you are insecure if you want to buy the game on either platform, wait until it's released, read the media AFTER release, ask your friends who bought it and mak your decision.
It's not like we're junkies, are we?

And one further thing: It's CoD! It will be nothing to measure the new gen of consoles. It's not meant to intruduce the new gen. It's meant to be played MP like there was no tomorrow and it has it's crowd that is not even reading one single word on this site.

All versions of this game suffer from problems, it's poorly optimised no matter the system. There's no talent left in Infinity Ward, they're all off doing Titanfall. I'd suggest that CoD fans wait for that game on 360, PC and One.
As for PS4 owners like myself, we'll just have to make do with Killzone Shadowfall, which looks LEAGUES ahead of CoD already. Destiny also is one to look forward to.

Dropping 10fps isnt that bad? Screen tear nightmare. Most T.V's come in refresh rates that fit 60 and 30fps 120 480 600 etc. So if you have frame rate that isnt 30 or 60 it tears. Thats why KZ runs at 60 in SP but when things get taxing it jumps straight to 30. I think many will follow this technique. I used to have a 200hz tv for upstairs but swapped it for a 180 for that reason alone

Considering how plain CoD looks, this is a significant indicator of a much larger issue. It's not like CoD has a ton of bells and whistles going off so they should be able to run this at a complete stable framerate no problem. But they can't do that. It's fine to get a next-gen console, but don't bury your head in the sand about the truth of the limitations and problems developers are encountering.

Ubisoft's Sylvain Trottier:

"And to be really honest, Sony fixed all the issues that could have been there on the console and right now I think it's up to us; like we have a perfect jewel in our hand. It's up to us to push the bar and make it shine."

IW is the cause of all the issues found on all the platforms they are found on. However the reason for 720 on Xb1 is lack of power but the reason for framerate drops on PS4, XB1 and PC have nothing to do with power, there are clearly bugs in their autosaves and in the way they coded the effects.

Every version does. That's why I'm skipping this one. To many other and better FPS out there. Infinityward lost me after MW2. I'll stick with trearch and wait for BO3. Till then, battle field and kill zone will satisfy me.

ps4 version is being bashed for a while now
xbox fans are saying "I rather play at 720p with smooth framerate than 1080p with choppy framerate"
something like that.

turns out xbox one version also have these issues.

"Even the PS4 has frame rate issues in this game...google it." yes thats the whole point, xboners where bagging the PS4 yesterday talking about how it cant run cod at 1080p and that the xbone version will be smooth and perfect cos its 720p, one xboner even went as far as to say Sony paid IW to make it 1080p even tho they knew the frame rate would be worse...............but it turns out the xbone version running at 720p actually looks worse and runs worse lol. I think you are just a bit late to the party.

Fps drops in multiplayer is a no no.

A sad day...
ambientFLIER  +   706d ago
Um, EVERY cod game has fps drops in multiplayer when there's a lot going on. Especially smoke grenades on COD4.

Why optimise when people buy it anyway?
Why change the game at all when people buy it anyway?

Save $$ that way

Blame all goes on those stupid casual gamers who buy this game, which make up the majority of the sales.
svoulis  +   706d ago
This game proves that InfinityWard had been stretched too thin.

I am currently playing on PC. There is so much wrong with it

There is no FOV adjustment in it

Netcode makes it feel like you often die in one shot.

The FPS is terrible I mean sometime for no reason at all it dips to 20 FPS

When you use a sight with blur around it, it causes the game to lock up sometimes for a second or 2.

Just really bad...a few step back from Black Ops II
warczar  +   706d ago
They have been going backwards for awhile now. When the real infinity ward left to form respawn the innovation and talent went with it.
svoulis  +   706d ago
Ya, I just meant in terms of the PC port of it. I enjoyed Black Ops II very much. This so far has been a nightmare performance wise on a very expensive gaming PC.
Visiblemarc  +   706d ago
Woah, I didn't realize it was that bad. Yikes!
DoesUs  +   706d ago
Even at 720p? WOW! Where POG? Anyone seen him? LOL.
Supermax  +   706d ago
The problem is to be next gen you need a next gen game engine to run the game this is why ea gave us frostbite 3.iw stayed with a last gen engine on a next gen game that dosnt work at all it was a big mistake on there part and in turn activision is responsible as well.when you release a game every year that also is a problem I'm glad that bis oft is ending assassins creed there's way to many.who knows though ghost made a ton of money on launch day was on par with gt5.what do you guys think I stopped playing cod back on cod 2 on PC.
HastaLaVista  +   706d ago
Its launch games. The same problem exists on the other platform. Every generation which comes around the 1st batch of games are rushed to reach launch and graphics are poor compared to latet games. Its gonna happen. If ppl moan dont buy a next gen console, wait. Its to be expected considering hardware and software change to launch.
asyouburn  +   706d ago
No one seems to understand this simple point. Regardless of any platforms strengths or deficiencies, the will find ways to optimize their code on both systems. Launch games are launch games.
malakar  +   706d ago
People are acting as if this is new.COD as always been horribly not optimized on PS3 and decent on xbox. Its the same but the other way around. Now they can't do it right on xbox 1 and is decent on PS4. Anyway even if it sucks on PC modders still can patch the game to make it a bit better. Still, why the hell would I buy a copy pasted game.
HastaLaVista  +   706d ago
Ps4 has the same problem. Its old news
strickers  +   706d ago
But less severe. Did you read the comment??

I'm sure Digital Foundry already has his Xboxone vs PS4 comparison video ready. Just waiting on the embargoed embargo to lift.

I'm sure we all can agree that COD:ghosts should not be used for any benchmarking. The game runs/looks like shit on all platforms, despite being technically in unimpressive in every sense of the word. There are so many reasons NOT to buy, regardless of what your console of choice is.

If people would stop handing ACTIVISION money, despite their insistence that IW regurgitate entries into this tired franchise instead of making a decent engine, this wouldn't be happening. I don't see how COD fans could endorse this kind of behavior.

I can't for the life of me understand why this game is getting more preorders than both BF4 and Killzone SF.

I guess next gen isn't ready for fish AI yet...Oh how i dream of the day when a game can implement fish AI and run at a buttery smooth

Who was honestly shocked? The XboxOne is weak hardware sold to the devout sheep at a premium price
Kuse  +   706d ago
All systems are affected, not just Xbox One...
XboxDone  +   706d ago
Yeah with xbox @720p. Garbage
strickers  +   706d ago
Again. Did you read comment? Worse on 720 p version
LogicStomper  +   705d ago
To all the non-believers and those that are just outright ignorant:




Using your logic, you may as well be PlaystationDone too cause it's also having problems for being such a powerful console. Oh, you might as well also be PC done cause it's having problems on PC. Well look at that, not going to be gaming anymore are you?

Seriously, what sort of mentality do you fanboys have?

For the millionth time, its less than half the pixels and has WORSE frame drops on Xbone!
Fishy Fingers  +   706d ago
Who'd of thought juggling so many platforms with a limited development cycle could lead to problems.
DEAD-DEVIL-DISCO  +   706d ago
id say delay it 3-4 weeks if that is the cause. can this be patched? i mean lets say its broken (unfinished)and cant be fixed what then?
tigertom53  +   705d ago
they should of spent another billion and another year of development as well as get a whole new game engine, maybe it would be fixed
XabiDaChosenOne  +   706d ago
Where all them X1 fans at from the PS4 article? But seriously this was expected if the PC and the PS4 version were suffering than the Xbox one was pretty much guarented to suffer the same fate. I was expecting this news to come out when the X1 version released but I guess fate wanted the Xbones to eat crow alot sooner than that.
KNWS  +   706d ago
Yet it was reported by IGN, Polygon, and others the only versions so far that had issues. Was the PS3/PS4 and PC.

X BOX 360 is fine according to those gaming outlets!

deadfrag  +   706d ago
Played the 360 version all run smooth like the other Cod games.Go guess!
WeAreLegion  +   706d ago
I seriously doubt the frame rate on either version is so bad that it's unplayable.
asyouburn  +   706d ago
For real, right? I've played (and thoroughly enjoyed) many many many games that ran way less fps.
jackdaniels  +   706d ago
So some ex-editor (probably lost his job (and rightly so) for spreading fictitious rumours, spouts some more rubbish and you lot gobble it up without questioning the legitimacy of this article? good grief!
Death  +   706d ago
I'm with you there. Usually when someone is an "ex" anything they aren't the most reliable source of information. He went from editor at IGN to writer for Furious Fanboys. Not sure how much info he has that the rest of us don't have access to. What build is he basing his opinion on? According to his Linkdin profile he is a former Sony Customer Service Rep at Sony Online Entertainment and former IGN DVD editior. That doesn't instill much confidence as far as his access to anything relevant is. Also makes him appear a little bit biased. Funny how those little details were left out. I wonder why?
tiremfej  +   705d ago
Thank you for bringing sense into this debate. Or hullabaloo, whatever you want to call it. This guy is the only one saying it. I'll prefer to let the professionals handle it.
Loki86  +   706d ago
This guy, wow does he have an agenda against MS, Conrad give it a rest.
Ko_Uraki  +   706d ago
I follow him on Twitter. Every day he has only bad words for Microsoft. Not interested in what he says anymore

Why do people listen to this guy? He clearly is anti-Microsoft. I've never seen a positive comment about the xb1 yet from him. If he was guy who never took sides, I'd be more willing to listen to him.

Anyways Cod ghosts is dropping frames like crazy on the 1080p versions-PS4 and PC

So it not an issue with the xb1, Cod is just badly optimised and rubbish.
BigShotSmoov007  +   706d ago
This is the main reason why I'm skipping this game. IW not only is just rushing a game out just to be on next gen, they are trying to get is hype about an inferior product on both systems. I don't get how a game you got to run 1080p 60fps has serious frame rate drops when I'm sure it has enough power and memory to handle the game. Even a game that's running and lower res isn't having frame rate drops? That's just unacceptable and lazy on IW part.
InTheLab  +   706d ago
Ok so this company makes Billions off the games and their insanely overpriced dlc and where is that money going? It damn sure isn't being funneled back into the game for improvements..
asyouburn  +   706d ago
Well, when you launch a 60fps multiplayer shooter across 6 platforms, be sure to come back here and comment so we know how smooth it went. Thanks
