Call of Duty Ghosts: Not Much Difference Between Xbox 360 and Xbox One

Chris Velluci writes: "Recently there has been a lot of talk about the resolution and capabilities of the two next gen consoles coming out this November. Xbox One, set to release on November 22, has been getting the majority of the heat as they don’t have as many 1080p native games as the PS4, set to release November 15. Unfortunately for Xbox One, things are about to get worse." (Call of Duty: Ghosts, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Xbox 720p.
AlexanderNevermind  +   822d ago
Its 720p. The X1 can't make it look any better than what it is.
Relientk77  +   822d ago
I thought that was clever lol


I thought the same thing, the first screen looks better

Are they sure the first one is Xbox 360 version and the second one is Xbox 720 version? To be honest, I really find the first pic looking better than the second one with better colours and contrast.
blackbeld  +   822d ago

I noticed the xbox 360 has better lightning then xbox one.

Xbox 360 looks a lot better.
Irishguy95  +   822d ago
Hmm Ryse - 900p
Forza - 1080p

Of course the fanboys will come and say "Oh but at what sacrifice?" Where I will say "Yes and PS4 games sacrifice the fps to look that good too"

Both consoles are outdated by about 2 years now. X1 is a low end gaming PC from 2011, Ps4 is a Mid end gaming PC from 2011.


Oh jeez, the Nvidia 580 was released in 2011, it's even worse than I thought. You'd think the new consoles would be able to match a 2 year old card. What a shame indeed.

I must be going blind but the gun on the 360 version looks... better? Or maybe the X1 version is in the shade. I can't tell.
Blacksand1  +   822d ago
The XB1 is 720p with a 1080p up-scaled because MS tried to make it a t.v hub first and a gaming console second. My Fios is 720p reg. channels and 1080p on HD channels. When you mix the two that's what you get 720p with a up-scaled of 1080p, because of t.v part of the console.
MRMagoo123  +   822d ago
I told ppl this already, i have seen it running it looks like current gen on the xbone I would say called it but thats not right cos it wasnt a call i actually knew for a fact lol.
XB1_PS4  +   822d ago
Looks like he's standing under a shadow on the X1 version.
Panthers  +   822d ago
Those HAVE to be mismarked. I mean COD looks like crap on any system, but there is no way that is right.
aceitman  +   822d ago
I emailed the website about the pics being mixed up and he says theres no mix up. this is his reply -They are correct. Look closely at the Xbox One version, especially the shadows.
They are better, even if the overall color seems drained.- ouch.
BISHOP-BRASIL  +   822d ago
I can be wrong, but from the wires in the background it seens Xbox One version had no AA while Xbox 360 version have some.

And, sadly, I don't think it's mislabelled. Isolated details point at slitghly better assets on picture labelled "ONE" than on picture labelled "360"... The semaphore posts look more detailed - more polys?- on "ONE" and also have a lamp on top which is missing on "360". The gun, palm trees and wheels on the turned over boxcar are all lower poly on "360". "ONE" appears to have higher resolution textures on the strip club billboard on the left and on the boarded window in the right...

It looks like they are using the same assets from PS4 and PC version on Xbox One version, but struggling to render those assets on full HD resolution (or even framerate according to some reports) beyond worse lighting (apparently, gotta see the game in motion to really jusge that), no AA and somewhat muddy visuals (blur?).
black0o  +   822d ago
it's COD for God sake

the same thing could be said about PS3 vs PS4 -except dat 1080p-
Playstationologist  +   822d ago
I would still buy cod if the only difference was native 1080p. My biggest problem with current gen is how bad 720p and lower looks on my nice 1080 screen compared to native 1080p.
Eonjay  +   822d ago
Agreed. COD was a last gen title. If it wants to remain relevant, its going to have to step its game up.
The_Infected  +   822d ago
Wow the 360 version looks just as good and the Xbox One version IMO. Lol
MRMagoo123  +   822d ago
what you meant to say was the xbone version looks just as bad as the 360 version right lol.
Funantic1  +   822d ago
There's not much difference between the PS3 and PS4 versions.
The 360 version does slightly look better than the PS3 version.

Oh yeah the 360 version is 880 x 720 upscaled to 1080p
The X1 version is 1220 x 720 upscaled to 1080p

I have seen them both running and the ps4 version is easily better than the Xbox one version, it's a day and night amount of difference.
Golden30  +   822d ago
you must be blind....ps4 looks waaay better than the ps3 version buddy

I can sse a big difference between the PS3 and Ps4 version with a labtop not able to run HD video effectively
spaceg0st  +   821d ago
You must be blind. There's a very big difference between ps3 and ps4 versions. Watch the video next time first before posting.
joab777  +   822d ago
We saw a video of battlefield running on ps4 and xbone and while the ps4 had slight advantages, they both looked a hell of a lot better than this gen. So why would we think that CoD would look the same? It won't be a juggernaut cuz it isn't an amazing looking game anyway but I doubt its the same as the 360.
HaveAsandwich  +   821d ago
360 looks better

Same identical graphics on PS4 but at 1080p. Troll article.
The_Ozymandias  +   822d ago
This actually says more about the Xbox One than it does about the PS4. The PS4 runs the game as well as is possible/expected of a next generation game console. It's got no flaws, or problems, at all running a game that's nothing more than upscaled last-gen rehash crap with higher resolution textures and draw distances, and the Xbox One can't even run that at the resolution standard for the next generation. But by all means, justify it, reason how as time passes the standards for performance go down and we grow to settle for mediocrity.
Pascalini  +   822d ago
Nah the guy who got the early xb1 said it was much better an even showed a comparison

Nice attempt at a troll though

01animeking  +   822d ago
To be fair infinity ward did some shitty ports for ghost and the fact the game run off an old ass engine with the same textures from previous iterations it ain't going to look good on any platform
DxTrixterz  +   822d ago
Does anybody really expect COD to look any different. It's looking exacly the same since COD2 from 2005 with slightly little barely visible upgrades to the engine each year. Xbox 360, Xbox One hell even Xbox Two or whatever they'll call next Xbox if they makes one COD will always be the same and there will always be people who will buy it. Infinity Ward and Treyarch it's time to really make a new engine and stop reusing 8 year old engine. Go for CryEngine or better yet (but the ain't gonna happen) Frostbite.

Looks "slightly little barely upgrades"
Than this

hmmm... Slightly visible if you ask me the copy baste formula started after world at war. and mw2
ambientFLIER  +   822d ago
The same since COD2 ??? haters are seriously reaching now... COD4 was a huge leap in graphics over COD2, especially online. And if you play Ghosts versus COD2, even more so.
Qrphe  +   822d ago
No way that's true. CoD2 looked like an upscaled PS2 game in 360 in the same regard that Ghosts looks like a 360 game upscaled in PS4.
bryanm  +   822d ago
This article is entirely pointless without a PS4 comparison, and even then a cross generation game is never gonna take full advantage of the power of PS4/Xbox One.
NeoTribe  +   822d ago
Cod ghost did take full advantage of the x1. Why do you think its not in 1080p? Is your brain half dead? They didn't just choose 720 for shits and giggles. Its a fact that it can't handle running it in 1080. You are right about the ps4 though, especially after comparing it to killzone.
bryanm  +   821d ago
I apologise for my comment before being rather brief, I sort of assumed most people would actually get the point I was making. Clearly not.

First off: I wasn't referring to the power of either console. Not remotely, I'm not sure how you even reached that conclusion.
I'm referring to the fact that a game developed for both generations will never take full advantage of the possibilities of the next gen consoles due to the development process.
It's always going to be little things such as improved lighting or sharper textures but you're not going to see the drastic level of difference that other titles offer.
Look at Assassin's Creed, it looks great, but there isn't a huge difference between generations.

Secondly: Of course the Xbox One is capable of 1080p. There are 1080p games coming out on launch day in fact. It'd even be fully capable of playing Call of Duty: Ghosts in full 1080 if they had gotten past the launch development jitters as well as they did with the PS4.
This will all pass.
If you compare games that came out at the start of this generation to the games coming out now there is an absolutely huge difference. It's staggering.
If you really think we won't be seeing this huge difference in games several years from now (and that somehow the games will vastly improve but the Xbox One will still be stuck with 720p) then odds are you're the one with the struggling brain capacity.

mrnice  +   822d ago
they may just do ps4 boys make me laugh i am one my self.i have played em both and must say cod is the same on both 1080p vs 720 u cant tell simple as that battlefield 4 on ps4 better backgrounds. xbox one close up more detail. last of all ran much better on xbox one.same as cod as for killzone thats just stunning thats no bull so getting em both as dont want to lose out.
Flutterby  +   822d ago
Lol don't even lie , I have seen them both running on both consoles and the ps4 versions are way better , my friends that do reviewing also agree and we will see that when the embargo drops off from the ms games lol they can't hide their bad games for much longer

DoctorJones  +   822d ago
This a game where it looks crap on all systems, it's just the degrees of crapness that separate them. You can play at higher resolutions on pc and ps4, but that just makes the crap a little less murky, it's still diarrhea splashed on a screen in gaming form.

Thanks Activision for your continued efforts in pumping out turds and packaging it for the gaming masses.
SpecialK  +   822d ago
Not surprised, remember last gen I swear cod3 and some other games barely looked any better than their ps2/xbox counterparts.

Give it some time last gen for the 360 no games really had a wow factor until gears was released, for the ps3 it was uncharted/killzone.

It'll be the same this time, wait for one of the big exclusive releases.
Derajcan2  +   822d ago
im sure this can be said for both ps4 and xbox 1, COD wont be making a giant leap oppose to other games on both systems

I feel bad for people who spent 500 bucks on a next gen console that can't even run a launch game at 1080p 60fps. while most PS4 games run at 1080p 30/60fps. And this is launch. So how is Xbox gonna handle games later down the line ?
JediDiah  +   822d ago
PC gamers saying it runs bad on it too.
Mini0510_13  +   822d ago
Yup FPs drops on certain areas of the map no matter what setting you choose. Stuttering, lag while browsing in game menu, crashes.


I only have fps drops here and there. So I'm lucky. LOL
Flutterby  +   822d ago
Having played it myself on the Xbox one the game runs bad but it is also the worst looking version by far , it's closer to current gen than it is to the ps4/pc
Yomaster  +   822d ago
I can attest to this. AMD FX-8350 octa-core CPU, EVGA GTX 770 Superclocked...still looks and runs like absolute shit. Battlefield 4 runs more smoothly and looks better.
