‘Call of Duty: Ghosts’ Xbox One potential resolution patch discussed

Infinity Ward's Mark Rubin has commented on the possibility of releasing a patch to increase the resolution for Call of Duty: Ghosts on Xbox One. (Call of Duty: Ghosts, Xbox One)

"I don’t know if it’s possible to be honest. It’s not something we’re going to look at right away because we have higher priority items we have to hit first. Launching, especially with a whole new backend and so many different changes to our networking etcetera – there’s a lot for our engineers to do post-launch but I don’t know if they’ve even thought about where we could go with a patch like that. I actually don’t even know if it’s possible."

So no.

Really stupid article. I hate these kinds of N4G links that try to hook you in with the implication that it was an actual discussion or that the patch was confirmed. It wasn't. It was just Rubin saying 'No'.

Also its from an interview that has been posted like a dozen times to this site. Really stretching to make an article from a 'no' answer in an interview that everybody has already referenced a bunch.

I bet you did not like it because you got owned in it all the time, and at the bottom of the scoreboard!

Or it could be that this is the worst release in the series and performs like crap, no matter the platform, to boot.

At least when talking next gen systems and PC.

I liked the franchise but they keep dragging it down with each new release. This franchise is in need of a major overhaul and i don't mean graphically.

Yep it's examiner. I hate that f***ing site.
Soc5  +   747d ago
Exactly No...Wow Lol the examiner is trash. Last time I ever read or look at anything from that site.

You can't patch HARDWARE.....
mewhy32  +   748d ago
Exactly jay2, exactly. Don't pay 100.00 more for less. Get a PS4.
GmIsOnPt360  +   748d ago
Exactly, get the better spec'd system with the weaker launch and lesser online service. its cheaper up front ;)... or get both and have best of both worlds...frees up time hating on one particular product! cheers fellas
Volkama  +   748d ago
No amount of teraflops or pixels will render 300,000 Xbox live servers and a Kinect.

Pay the extra.
thrust  +   748d ago
The online service is worth it alone :)

Don't want a slap dash add on to keep up service!
Utalkin2me  +   748d ago

Did you just say lesser, why not just use worser, lol? It frees up time from hating? And in your first sentence you was hating. I am assuming you was meaning weaker launch titles, if so that is a matter of opinion. I haven't used either online yet, considering neither are out. Being you obviously have used both online, feel free to fill me in on why one is "lesser" experience then the other online.

Xbox servers, Please tell why that is going to make your experience better then other competitors.

Why is Xbox1 online service better then PS4?

i prob will sound like a bit of a fanboy myself here...but do you and the others put on the big fuzzy ps4 suit and hand out flyers in front of all the retailers? I'm sure we can all make a decision for ourselves. And don't come back with this $100 more crap, get a job you fool.
thrust  +   748d ago
Go and see for yourself, it's not hard to see and notice the difference!

@UncleGermrod: Where the hell was that statement during the PS3 launch? Or are you only willing to turn a blind eye when it's convenient?
Regis  +   748d ago
@thrust I will go back to microsoft if they stop giving out indies or old AAA games that I can buy cheap only for gold, so I changed my mine to PS, gold does not require my money anymore.

Edit for spelling.

i agree with unclegermrod....why do you ps fans keep trying to run down the xbx one?its our business what we do with our cash and our choices shouldnt bother you....you guys sound like a couple of evangelists trying to convert unbelievers..dude let it go..people going for the xbx one know exactly what they want...stop trying so hard.
Wikkid666  +   748d ago
It's not a hardware issue. It's a crappy developer issue.
user7402931  +   748d ago
if that's true why is ps4 running it in 1080p ?
jgrigs09  +   748d ago
@ditypump. Obviously you have only read the title of an article and not the actual story. It was the developers issue not Microsoft.
Wikkid666  +   748d ago

You are oblivious PS fanboy... so I will put it in your terms.

PS3 is the best far better hardware than the 360.

How come Black Ops only ran at 540p? was it a hardware issue or poor development?
isa_scout  +   747d ago
So I guess that 90% of the developers releasing games on the Xbox One are from crappy developers?Listen guys, I plan to buy both systems, but since when did all N4G users become ignorant to the truth?
1080p is better than 720p.Fact. Infact I can't belive this is a freakin debate.
Xbox One has MORE launch exclusives not BETTER. Thats all a matter of opinion.For me its Killzone and Warframe, if thats not your cup of tea then kewl I wont knock you for it.
BUT to all these MS fanboys where the hell ahve you been for the past 4 years?In hybernation?Yes, you'll have more exclusive titles at launch, but I prefer to pick up the console that will be supported for its entire lifecycle.
I'll pick up the Xbox One for Titanfall and Halo5, but anyone that honestly thinks the Xbox One is as powerful or will have as many great exclusives as the PS4 is beyond a fanboy.Those are the people I like to call ignorant.

The patch will activate the super secret DGPU.

but what about the power of the cloud?
MasterCornholio  +   748d ago
Yep they are going to use Xbox Live compute to boost the resolution.

GodGinrai  +   748d ago

you people never get bored of using that one, eh?
Sci0n  +   748d ago
I been hearing from microsoft how revolutionary it will be and why there console will be the best one on the market. I am really curious to see how they use it. Could the cloud possibly be better then really good hardware even though everyone in the US doesn't have a great or even decent internet connection? some don't even have the internet.
nukeitall  +   748d ago
The power of the cloud is preventing you from lagging out while playing online. No amount of teraflops going to help with the lack of servers.


It can as nvidia has shown cloud rendering:


Increasing AI and physics is done in Titanfalls already. Driveatar in Forza 5 also showcases AI improvement in the cloud that isn't possible on the console alone.

Sci0n  +   748d ago
but microsoft said it can be used to increase A.I graphics and in game physics I thought?
Playstationologist  +   748d ago
Wow you xbone fanatics are seriously challenged. PS4 can add an array of cloud servers but xbone will never get a gpu or gddr5 upgrade.

In fact, Sony has already entered a contract with a major server company. I forget the name but it's the same one titanfall devs mentioned as their preferred way of running the game. They went to m$ as a second choice to see if it was even possible.

PS4 will lead this gen through and through. I used 360 this entire gen and halo is my favorite game but xbone is garbage.
jgrigs09  +   748d ago
Yea by your name I doubt you touched a 360. Playstationologist doesn't justify your own comment.
Palaven  +   747d ago
Sony will never be able to match Microsoft's Cloud infrastructure so no they can't just 'add an array of cloud servers'. If the Cloud lives up to Microsoft's hype, Sony most likely won't be able to provide the same services.

What makes it impossible for a console to have a GPU or GDDR5 upgrade?

Lets take a interview and twist the entire title into one that is completely out of context and has no relation to the actual article and post it on n4g so we can stir a pot.
Chrono  +   748d ago
Release it as DLC.
badz149  +   748d ago
1080p DLC...ook, that would be the 1st!

Stop it with Kinect I would be willing to bet the majority of people would buy one without it if they were given the option.

I'll say this guys, I am on Mission 13: End of the Line for X360, and I will have the Xbox One version at launch as well. So far I noticed a drop in framerate, and stuttering on Mission8: Birds of Prey. When I play through COD: Ghost on Xbox One, I'll see if the same thing occurs. Other than that, I'm actually enjoying the campaign. Very entertaining! and the last Call of Duty game I enjoyed was Black Ops 1.
Tzuno  +   748d ago
And Battlefield 4 that is superior on all aspects runs on 2 Gb of ram....What patch?come again?
hollabox  +   748d ago
It will probably be the option 1080P at 30 or 720P at 60! Any who this game does not look that good based on videos to be running at 720P. I get Battlefield 4, even my PC struggles in some spots, oh well first gen software.
DEEBO  +   748d ago
World war 3!

No matter who comes out on top i am going to enjoy another new console launch.I have seen some systems come and go(old man now 36yrs)

I will own both the ps4 and the x1 maybe xmas for the X1 but it's ps4 time for me
on the 15.

lol my wife's B-day is on the 22nd,too bad she hates games though.
Tell her
look baby what i got you for you're birthday a new x1.
BG11579  +   748d ago
At this point, Xbone fans are so use to 180, that they believe that every 180 is possible...
Moncole  +   748d ago
If you care so much about resolution than get a gaming PC.
Sci0n  +   748d ago
Why can't gamers who prefer to game on consoles want the there next gen console to produce the best resolutions available especially when they spent big money on 1080p HD TVs? why should we settle for 720p? is it because we prefer not to game on PC? is native 1080p gaming only exclusive to PC?
Moncole  +   747d ago
1080p is not a PC exclusive but every game that releases will be 1080p on PC and not all of them will be 1080p on consoles. If your only reason is to stay with console for the exclusives than you should get a gaming PC for PC exclusives and multiplatform games and you can easily set up a PC by your TV with a controller.
pyramidshead  +   747d ago
I think patching it would just add a whole heap of more problems to the XB1 version to be honest. Let it be what it is, or get a PS4.
