Does PS4's 1080p resolution make a difference? IGN discusses the noticeable enhancements.
What i got out of this, its a rushed game and you should pick up BF4 or Killzone SF for launch shooter.
^agreed... I do find it pretty funny how this is being played off, though... current gen: Remember GTAIV? The 360 had a 40 horizontal line bump to native res...and the internet collapsed...while IGN specifically gave the ps3 version the nod, the rest of the gaming media had a field day with it... next gen: The PS4 is pushing more pixels across multiple games; this example being a full 50% increase in pixel count vs. its main competitor...and...its 'no big deal'... because gaming journalism...
My advise: skip it Ps4 gamers buy killzone. At least they have heart Xbox gamers but bf4 to scratch that itch til titanfall
Yup it's sickening how they don't "notice any difference", yet when the 360 version was 5% better than the PS3, the whole entire world ended. Nonetheless People with a PS4 should buy this instead http://i.minus.com/i6elV1EP...
I agree completely with sincity.....Clearly it's a rushed game to maximize it's profits for the next gen crowd. It's not a good game at all, it's average at best. I love FPS and I'm getting an XBO so I'm getting BF4 for the FPS next gen experience. PS4 buyers should do the same along with Killzone or just buy one of them but don't sell yourself short by buying a rushed copy of COD just because it's a COD game. Don't waste your money.
Wow, this is the first time that I really thought it looked much better on PS4. Everything about it looks a step up on the PS4 version for sure.
720p to 1080p is 125% difference, not "50%", lol. And somehow it "doesn't matter" anymore. Eh, Cod Ghost isn't some visual masterpiece anyway.
Yeah, read FAMILY GUY's comment. It IS 100 % increase in native resolution, not 50 percent. 720 = like a milliion pixels 1080 = little over two million. It really is kinda staggering when one really looks at the numbers, but admittedly, we won't notice REAL significant visual differences on multiplats until devs leverage the PS4's extra performance for things apart from resolution, i.e. character and object models, draw distances, shading/lighting, et cetera.
Am I crazy or is the Xbox One's field of view more zoomed in?
^oops...forgot this was cod, thought it was bf4... PS4 bf4 is 900/60fps... Xbox one is 720/60fps... that is where my '50%' was coming from... yeah, ghosts is literally double the pixels per frame...but, imo at least, still looking underwhelming on all levels...I just can't believe they couldn't get a game like ghosts to run at a higher res on the xbox one..........
I'm picking up both of those shooters for my FPS fix. But I managed to get this game for free with that amazon promo code they have so it certainly doesn't hurt to get it for free. Nonetheless, I see myself playing kill zone and battlefield much more because those games just look amazing. COD will be for the occasional friend that gets on and wants me to play with him.
Same here, freebie, wish I coulda used it on Watchdogs or one of my other games, but only thing left was Knack (which is okay, just not my cup of tea). So I decided CoD is doable if it's free! I wouldn't pay money for this game, so thank Amazon!
The thing that's weird here is that Ghosts is a mess on PC with framerate drops & graphical settings that don't really add anything when switched on. Yet XB1 is the only next-gen platform that seems to have no problems apart from a lower res which doesn't affect it that much because COD looks about the same on all platforms. This to me shows the XB1 got the most optimization out of the next-gen platforms. In contrast you have a far more demanding/graphical game like BF4 that looks great/runs well on all next-gen platforms with the PS4 having a higher res & more stable framerate on consoles. IW has obviously done a bad job at optimization here than Dice has seen from BF4 taking advantage of the touchpad & kinect. Is the difference between the two much to a break a leg over IMO NO but like Scott lowe said if the res is that much of a deal in COD then go for the PS4 version if you have both consoles.
"This to me shows the XB1 got the most optimization out of the next-gen platforms. " Is that Microsoft's doing? Nexus 7 2013
I don't think so tbh but that's not for me to say. It's just something I observed personally. Looking at PC BF4 mind up it's not prefect either it also bugs & crashes but when it runs it runs well compared to COD where it has framerate drops even on something like a titan from just zooming in then you do something is wrong. Ghosts not only has fake spec limitations & it also only runs only 4fps faster then BF4 on a titan and we know BF4 has a lot more going on (Destructibility & vehicles) & is 5X+ more prettier :p. Also reports of even the UI being laggy. http://www.neogaf.com/forum... http://www.neogaf.com/forum... http://www.youtube.com/watc... http://www.youtube.com/watc...
I agree. I've had the last two COD games on Xbox but this time since it seems like they play the same and I'll have both systems I'm going to choose the ps4 version because of the 1080p resolution.
IGN say "Looking at them side by side the difference is noticeable... but the PS4 version looks discernibly more detailed then the Xbox One. You'll notice sharper edges, weapons and character models as a result of the higher resolution." So IGN say yes PS4 version is superior but it won't matter if you have an Xbox One you will still enjoy the game and won't feel like you are missing anything it's also much improved over 360 version.
Fast kill those jaggies
I dont want to sound ironic but, why has the xbox one version have a GREEN tint to it?
It doesn't look color balanced. You can see by the blood looking magenta towards the end. Lack of blues. Possibly the recorder not being calibrated.
they are using a specific color pallet to try to hide the inferiority of the resolution. They also took out details and crushed the blacks. Nice tricks to fool untrained eyes and keep the ridiculous 720p 1080p has no difference arguments going on.
I'm gonna be honest here but I don't see a difference at all in resolution. Just that the xbox one is jaggy and has that green tone look.
ign is biased, it is pro-xbox
I hate IGN. They are definitely pro IGN as whole, but you can see that some of their employees favor Sony. I just think that they are in the minority and can't dictate the main page articles. It always seems like theres more Ex Box content on their.
"jaggy", But yeah, this is one of the greatest impacts of the resolution difference. The jaggies are more visible, specially from distant objects.
I see a lot of jaggies on all versions. Not only Xbone version.
The green tint is off and out of place and wasn't designed by devs to be in the game. Its a bandaid to try to mask and cover up detail lost.
lol both look the same.
lol... How can you say that or did you not watch the video? Not being a jackass or anything I'm just wondering how you couldn't see it. It's almost like someone filmed it with a muddy lense. It's especially noticable during the swimming and the night jungle level. It's not a knock on the XOne version either. I truely believe this comes down to IWs inability to properly optimize the game for any of the next-gen systems. Given the fact that it doesn't run smoothly on the PC I'd say thats the safest assumption.Seeing as the PC should be the easiest platform to optimize for I think IW just dosn't give a shit anymore. Time for COD to die anyway, and it should've happened about 2 or 3 games ago. I'm really thinking that Destiny will be the next franchise to take the crown. God I hope Acti doesn't screw with Bungie, and let's them realize their vision instead of saying, "We need it now, and then next year you need to make another one, and another." Screw you Activision!!!
i could care less what you are trying to look for. If i put that video infront of any normal person they would say they are the same. Im not looking through some magnifying glass just to see some edges on one imo. Contrast can be adjust via tv settings. Both versions look great for a cod game. Still not buying this crap.
Luckily, Bungie aren't owned by Activision, and with their status as game developers, I really doubt they'd allow themselves to be fucked with.
http://gearnuke.com/call-du... Call of Duty: Ghosts SP is 720p, MP is 1080p on PlayStation 4 wait soo whats the difference again? LMAO
Holy shit dude it must've really been bothering you what I said huh??? Take a chill pill, and enjoy you MP at 720p because I'll be enjoying it in native 1080p...lol Oh and it still doesn't change the fact that in IGNs video the PS4 clearly has the edge.The butthurt is strong in you ;)
Activision best allocate all their resource to Destiny
Even IGN everyone one is stating the the PS4 version loos noticible better, and the underperformance ps4 myth debunked
Some games for the XB1/PS4, I found the xb1 version to have better colouring, shading, lighting. PS4 fans have ignored this even when i pointed this out to them, showing examples! To be fair. I have closely studied this video and you can clearly see the PS4 version is better not by much. The colouring is also very different, to be honest the PS4 version colouring is better this time, to me. If you look closely at the first comparison video. The trees behind the church look much clearer on the PS4 version. This is just one example were i noticed a difference. Overall the differences are minor you really have to look to find them.
You cant tell the quality difference (the video is placing both gameplay videos together (ps4/1080p v xbone/720p) as the ps4 1920x1080 is also cropped to fit the 1280x720 (720p) which results in basically downrezzing it to fit 1280x720 and the processing it while upscaling both videos to 1080p (fake 1080p) which basically means that youre watching a 100% purposely botched video to fool the eyes of the people who havent experienced gaming in (true native) 1920x1080 (1080p). Basically, you wont know until you get your hands on the pure experience (the true detail in visuals is significant to 200%) on the PS4's 1080p games or Xbox's forza 5. Current gen often upscaled games to 720p (often games had lower resolutions than 1280x720 and if you chose the 1080p option, youre still upscaling from a low resolution. The only possibility to see that true 1920x1080 visual fidelity was to actually see it yourself on a pc that is capable. So basically this video (visual part) is pointless. Ign is just trying to tell us that theres little difference between 720 & 1080 by letting us decide in how it looks through a shit quality and purposely botched video.
Preach it sista
I would like to get some reviews on how current gen looks compared to next versions.
Pretty much as expected...I actually prefer the lighting and such on the XB1 version...could just be the TV settings or whatever though....can't notice ANY difference in motion, native 1080p or upscaled 1080p differences can't be noticed by anyone...frame rate issues can, but when paused you can notice slight differences....however, it's curious that on a primarily MP game, IGN didn't even bring up the fact that XB1 will have FULL dedicated server support where are PS4 does not have TRUE dedicated server support, and that most actions will still be done P2P....that seems like a huge deal to me for a MP game. There has been a lot of talk about how the new consoles have a much better advanced hardware upscaller, and I have to be honest, the trade off looks worth it. If 99.999% of people can't notice a difference without a label, and Native and Upscalled produce nearly the same results....WHY NOT save those resources for something else and let your system run more efficient and cooler? At this point is seems like little more than a marketing ploy to be able to say that you run "native" 1080p. True, if the game is a simple game and doesn't have much else going on, it SHOULD be 1080p native...but other than that....why? If we are even debating if anyone can tell the difference.... There needs to be a blind "taste" test like they did with pepsi and coke
You cant notice 1080p on any videos because it isnt 1920x1080 (native) and no console gamer has experienced 1080p gaming (native rez). You here saying that its not noticable is what ign wants you to think by watching a shit quality video and saying its a real comparison. It is not and in fact, this video is compressed to be lesser quality than 720p. Resolution isnt about a dramatic change in the way the game looks. Youre not going to see crysis in call of duty if you up the resolution. You are going to see a significant increase of detail and purity/clarity like you did when we went from 640x480 (480p) to 720p. The difference isnt seen because no video streamer including youtube, gives a pure video of how 1080p looks and the fact that many people dont have a 1080p monitor to experience it. Wait till the consoles drop and play a true 1080p game (more preferably codxb vs codps4) to notice the significant difference.
sooooo..... - PS4 version looks the best.... - Xbone version doesnt look bad... - Neither gets a bad experience... sounds good to me
The game is rubbish anyway. I don't know why anyone even cares.
How long are we going to continue discussing this topic? Jeez...
Probably until sometime after the MS fans stop insisting the XB1 version still looks better.
Sadly it will continue til the world ends.
GOT DAM I WAS RIGHT!! the best CODG is on XBOX ONE? Someone is lying. http://www.thesixthaxis.com...
Why did the XB1 have a two week embargo? I'm in the camp that says if you're getting a PS4, get Killzone instead. It's the one FPS that was designed solely for a next gen console.
Dedicated servers for cod on the x1 and as you will see bf4 will be the same or run into the same problems on the ps4 with frame rate drops if your a multiplayer only person you will want to play your first person shooters on the x1.
Couldn't really tell a big difference from this video. Both have tons of jaggies. Must say that I like the colour of the PS4 version more. Xbox Ones version seems lighter/greener (soms things appeared pink where I would've expected the red color, that was being shown on the PS4) whereas the PS4 version looked darker and more blue'ish (what are the odds). Goes to show that IW took too much on it's sleeve which didn't allow them to properly optimize any version whatsoever. Edit: Must say that the Xbox One version looked a bit sharper in areas which is strange considering the resolution difference (though it does feature more aliasing in areas which is terrible). To me the difference between 1080p/720p wasn't noticeable. But that could be due to this vid.
There is so much better options on either console it's ridiculous!
What a joke. A few years ago, gaming media was screaming about how the ps3 had all these gimped inferior multi play titles. The fact was that the 360 had marginally better visuals. They were there, but they were small. Bayonetta was pretty bad, but the rest were negligible. Now, the PS4 is considerably more powerful and its a no biggee? Hows this possible? If we were to stay consistent, then the Bone needs to be exposed for what it is. A glorified 360 with tv stuff.
What's silly though is that yellowish tint on the Xbox One version... makes it look worse regardless of the resolution. Anyone else find it noticeably uriney?
If u wanna do a real comparison run it without the upscaled... Do the xbox one in its 720p and the ps4 in its 1080p no steroids is allowed in the Olympics!!
As I always say, no one cares about the resolution. It's the online experience that matters when you're playing multiplayer games. No one takes time to check the resolution when you're dodging bullets and running, talking to your friends online. The only thing that matters is which system offers the better online experience.
It doesn't matter to me which version looks better. KZSF looks 10x better than COD. KZSF & BF4 is the only FPS I'll be playing.
