Call of Duty: Ghosts is best on Xbox One, just

MMGN: If you want to know which console is best for Call of Duty: Ghosts, we have to recommend the Xbox One, but only just.

The story is too old to be commented.

And yet, this source says Xbox One is riddled with frame rate problems.

allformats1774d ago (Edited 1774d ago )

Eh, not so fast, guys:

And so a little framerate drop on PS4 according to these guys makes Xbox One better, but the constant 1080p visuals have no effect?

Edit: I did a double-take, and it's the a site with the URL:

I see.

For further proof that PS4 is way superior, all one has to do is look at this:

PoSTedUP1774d ago

almost 200 degrees in the pending section over an hour, ZERO approvals. lmao!
no but seriously 1080p>720p thoes slight frame issues will be fixed in a patch, preorders dont lie nothing will stop the ps4 from owning the sales and the better version in this (sorry excuse of a) COD game.

LackaJaKane1774d ago (Edited 1774d ago )


the only link that benefits your argument about what is stated in this article is the first link because it stated the ps4's visuals are better along with no framerate issues

Both ign and mmgn both agree the ps4 version is visually better (which is minor) and is also the only version of the two that has frame rate issues. (which is also minor)

IGN--- "let me address the elephant in the room; resolution. Activision has confirmed that the ps4 version runs natively @1080p, whereas the xbox one up scales from 720p. But what does that mean in real world performance? looking at them side-by-side the difference is noticeable, but if you pick up one version and then come across the other, are you going to kick yourself? probably not."

"the ps4 version looks (can't spell word) more detailed than the xbox one. You'll notice sharper edges in weapons, environment and character models as a result of the higher resolution"

MMGN-- "Forget about the resolution debate. The difference between 720p upscaled to 1080p on Xbox One and native 1080p on PlayStation 4 is negligible during the single-player and not noticeable at all in multiplayer."

"There are some slightly smoother edges and the resolution is a little better during the nonsensical story, but there are things you won't notice unless you're actively looking for them and happen to play both versions almost side-by-side like I did"

IGN-- "But what about game play and performance? Frame rates are, as always locked at a smooth 60 frames per second with only an odd minor hiccup on the ps4"

MMGN-- "The PlayStation 4 version suffers from framerate issues during multiplayer that aren't present in the Xbox One build, which is running consistently at 60 frames per second."

"It's minor enough not to warrant switching to Xbox One if you're a multi-platform connoisseur already set on PlayStation 4, but it's much more noticeable than the resolution discrepancy which is a non-issue."

Bruce_Wayne1774d ago

PS4 version is definitely superior. Frame rate issues can be fixed via patching, while 720p is permanent for the Xbone version.

starchild1774d ago

All this console fanboy bickering about resolution and framerate is getting really old. I thought you guys didn't care about that stuff.

All I have to say about this is, I always place a premium on framerate. If I can't get a solid 60fps I will always drop settings, including resolution, to get it.

Either way, for people that enjoy this series it's going to be a good game on both console.

ikkokucrisis1774d ago (Edited 1774d ago )

What's great about the PS4 is that you'll have the option of playing the game at 720p as well. I'm sure it'll do 60fps at that resolution. As for me, I'm gonna give it a go at native 1080p first ;)

Game-ur1774d ago

IW are already working on a patch

Some reports say fram drops on the X1, some others say on the PS4, this could mean it is not a consistent issue

ChronoJoe1774d ago

@allformats: The sites url is but xbox is just a subdomain. It's just bad domain management rather than anything else. They also have sections for PS4, and so forth.

Note, I'm not defending the article in any way. I'd rather have the PS4 version, but ultimately it's like picking one turd over another. Ghosts really doesn't hold up well as a next gen game.

Bennibop1774d ago

The PC version, PS4 and Xone versions all have framerate issues! I have never know a COD release without issues on any platform, but the same will happen as always the issues will be patched out.

NoLongerHereCBA1774d ago (Edited 1774d ago )



Ezz20131773d ago

IW are already working a framerate patch for ps4
that only give ps4 the edge even more
it got the best gfx at 1080p native on consoles and the framerate will be fixed

while xbox version is having framerate problems too but at lower gfx and much lower res
even pc is having framerate problems too

mightyhokie1773d ago

'proof that the PS4 is way superior'? haven't played it. You don't own it. You haven't played the X1 to compare. You don't know what you are talking about. You are just a fan of Sony and buying into their hype. No doubt you are pointing out the same thing to people pushing the X1 claiming that its better than the PS4. You don't know what you are talking about. Quite literally. And that isn't my opinion, thats fact.

Boody-Bandit1773d ago (Edited 1773d ago )

You have some sources saying one thing and others the opposite. So it all comes down to who you believe or if any of it matters.

If you were planning on picking up a PS4 and GHOST would it change your mind if there were a few hiccups? Vice versa if you were going for the XBOX ONE with GHOST.

I'm picking up a PS4 and it has nothing to do with GHOST and everything to do with that is where I feel I will have the overall better gaming experience for this upcoming generation. Although I did pick up GHOST along with 5 other titles at Target using the 3 for 2 deal. They only had 6 games to choose from so I bought them all. What can I say? I'm pumped!

There isn't a single game out there or an opinion or even fact that would sway my decision of which direction I want to go and I doubt there is for any of you.

You really shouldn't give articles like this much weight as of now. The truth will be known, if you even care to know, after these games are released and the tech sites put them through their paces. But does that even matter? It sure as hell doesn't to me. A lot of these tech sites have been proven at times to be slanted, skewed and have made mistakes.

Man the new generation of gaming is upon us and I say, "Let's play some damn games!"

Leave every thing else to those that want to bicker over it. You can't win an argument of opinion and who cares about sales and reviews as long as they make enough money to keep this industry moving forward. I don't have stock in any of these companies and I play what I like regardless of what some site has to say about it.

1 MORE DAY! (please fly by)
Open my eyes tomorrow morning and come home with my new precious tomorrow night.

H0RSE1773d ago (Edited 1773d ago )

Basically, the vibe I get from PS4 fans, is that poor performance issues cant trump higher resolution... That's like saying, "yeah she kinda has a crappy personality, but man she's hot..."

Boody-Bandit1773d ago (Edited 1773d ago )


Why would I give a damn about a girls personality if all I want to be is have a good time and be entertained? What's more entertaining than having sex with a hot women? I'm not looking to married her or my console. Sheer entertainment only.

Just saying

jimmyateham231773d ago

batman, bruce wayne i know who u are and no its not superior they look the SAME....... XD

Kurylo3d1773d ago

All this crap talk, but the truth of the matter theres only one thing to beleive.. the truth about the hardware. We all know they are practically identical with the ps4 having an edge on the graphics card. This is why the ps4 can have higher resolution.. I have no doubt if the xbox one went to this higher resolution it would have even more lag spikes. At the end of the day what do you care about more. Better graphics or better frame rate. Anything above 30 fps is fine by me. And its way above it.. so like seriously...

ikkokucrisis1773d ago (Edited 1773d ago )

@ VaizardNL

If the PS4 works just like the PS3, you just force the display settings to output up to 720p. Consoles have to work with many different types of TV/Monitor's, so games essentially run at many different resolutions from 480i on up to the maximum resolution the console is configured for, or the max the game can output up to (which ever is lower). Get what I'm talking about now?

Larry L1773d ago

How half-assed of a developer are these guys when they can't get the friggin' ancient Quake 3 engine running perfectly smooth at 1080p on any kind of modern hardware including XBone? Rediculous.

On the topic of framerates, I personally don't care if a game is 60fps. In fact, since Killzone has been my FPS of choice since the first one due to it's heavy feel (which is odd since my other FPS of choice is Unreal Tournament which is the total opposite), I have to assume I actually prefer 30fps, particularly for the "realistic" style FPS. It's just got a more film like quality that I really enjoy. I'll be interested to play Shadow Fall's online with it's 60fps for multi-player to see if it affects the feel of the franchise that I've loved so much for so many years.

H0RSE1773d ago (Edited 1773d ago )


"Why would I give a damn about a girls personality if all I want to be is have a good time and be entertained?"

- try having a good time with a woman with either no personality, or a bad's quite the challenge. Personality is everything. An average looking girl with an awesome personality, always beats out a smokin' hot girl who is lacking one.

"What's more entertaining than having sex with a hot women?"

- I don't consider sex with a woman, "entertainment," unless perhaps we're performing show tunes or engaging in dance while we're in bed... Watching porn is entertaining, sex with a woman is something else...That being said, personally I cannot have sex with anyone who I don't like being around, regardless how attractive they are. I cannot engage in sex without emotion, which is why the only person I ever had sex with, is my wife.

"I'm not looking to married her or my console. Sheer entertainment only."

- So essentially you're saying "no commitment." You are implying you have no commitment to PS4 or in the the decision to buy one - somehow I doubt that.

''The Australian Xbox One Community''
i stopped reading there .. move alone ppl

LackaJaKane1774d ago


Probably should have kept reading because the article starts of buy saying

"Our Call of Duty: Ghosts review was published on launch day, based primarily on the PlayStation 4 version".

Which is linked to a review that says

"The Australian PlayStation 4 Community"

and by the way, both articles are authored by the same guy

kingdip901774d ago

I read somewhere that there will be a patch soon to fix the ps4 framerate issues... the reviews should take this into account

jackanderson19851774d ago

there's no guarantee the patch will fix them... based on patches of late it might actually screw the game up even more (BF4 and GTA5) come to mind

starchild1774d ago (Edited 1774d ago )

Unless there is some kind of very specific bug that is causing the framerate drops it is unlikely that it can be patched.

kiz26941774d ago Heres the article, @starchild Not necessarily, can just be down to bad/rushed optimization.

Computersaysno1773d ago (Edited 1773d ago )

It can't be patched??

Don't be dumb. PC games get performance patches all the time.

If this were really that bad they could lower the resolution of the PS4 version, but it's probably a tiny thing that's no big deal.

Seriously if they went to 1600*900 in a patch that's still Waaaaaaaaaaay more than X box One and the game can't fail to be running really really really friggin fast if it nearly manages 60fps at 1080p.

PS4 version may have been pushed a bit too far but if they just slightly lowered the res then it is obvious it's still be miles better than Xbone and run super super quick

They can have any custom rez they want. 1776*999 if they wanted to preserve 16:9. It's so not a big deal to scrape a few pixels off and gain enough performance

finbars751774d ago (Edited 1774d ago )

The big question is why are these games being reviewed together? When have they ever reviewed a game on two different consoles in one review which says a lot. The fact they we have seen the comparisons and there is a difference unless you have a shitty monitor,your drunk or your in denial. Its not the consoles that are suffering, like it was stated by IW the problem is there game period. Look at BF4 its not having any problems on the PS4 but on the Xboxone. Its like comparing apples to oranges. If you can notice 720p to 1080p native then it tells me a lot about these reviewers and there non honesty. Plus where are the PS4 reviews for this game that aren't linked to the Xboxones review? Another reason why Im calling these reviewers out on BS.

Azzanation1773d ago

Games aren't better because its 1080p. Look at Killzone SF.

aceitman1774d ago (Edited 1774d ago )

says the xbox website. its funny how ms has an event and many are coming back saying its best on xboxone at least these little websites. but we can cleary see ps4 is the better of the 2 by the videos we see. oh did I see some money being dropped.

FrigidDARKNESS1774d ago

It could be that they saw the final retail version instead of the reviewers copy.

SnotyTheRocket1773d ago

Yeah, It's Infinity Wards shitty ports and laziness. If a game like Battlefield 4, which is on High settings, never dips below 45FPS and is usually above 50, then neither should CoD.

FrigidDARKNESS1774d ago

Not all reviews will be same. DF will give the x1 version low marks while giving the ps4 version high marks. It all depends which gaming site you visit.

allformats1774d ago

Yeah, and isn't to be trusted on such matters for obvious reasons.

abc12331774d ago

What exactly are these obvious reasons? As far as I know they have a ps4 section of the site too and many sites have their URL like that based on the section.

Still Doesnt change the fact that the review is stupid. Negligible differences in resolution? Come on

MarkusMcNugen1773d ago

Apparently someone has never heard of subdomains.

MorePowerOfGreen1774d ago

Most are saying the xbox one version is better. Talking big media and small. Only the appeasing media try to cherrypick moot points.

DoesUs1774d ago

1080p is a 125% pixel density increase over 720p upscaled. That superior GPU clearly showing the X1 a clean pair of heels. All for $100 less 8)

MarkusMcNugen1773d ago

Pixel density and pixel resolution are two very different things. Pixel density, or PPI/PPCM, is the number of pixels a screen has per a given area. Such as inches or cm. Pixel count or resolution as its commonly called is the number of pixels the screen can display across the entire length and height of the screen.

So 1080p has about 50% more pixels to display on any given screen, but pixel density is dependent on the screen being used. Thats why I can have a phone with a screen at 720p with a pixel density of 300 that looks better than a phone at 1080p with a pixel density of 280.


I lol at the agrees you have. Some people will agree to anything that sounds good even if its untrue.

Utalkin2me1773d ago (Edited 1773d ago )


Pixel density is only reflected by the size of the screen. A 1080p image on a 30" inch screen is going to have a larger pixel density than a 1080p image on 27", hence it having a smaller screen and having to cram the same amount of pixels on a smaller screen. Thats the only way pixel density changes. But if you put 720p and 1080p on the exact same screen the 1080p image will always look better, cause the pixel density never changes on the exact same monitor or TV, it just changes only by size.

MarkusMcNugen1773d ago (Edited 1773d ago )


Resolution and screen size both comprise PPI. A 30" screen displaying a 1080p image has LESS PPI than a 1080p image on a 27" screen.

So DoesUs is incorrect that the pixel density increases from 720p to 1080p as it is dependent on the screen size and resolution. If he said pixel count I would have been more forgiving, but he still would have been way off as its a little over 50% and not 125%.

Regardless, Ghosts is rehashed lazy trash regardless of the platform you choose to buy it for.

Snookies121774d ago

Yeah, seems like the same old thing again. I would never pick up a Call of Duty new. Shoot, I wouldn't pick up Ghosts if it were 20 bucks right now. Not until they start giving me a reason to pick it up. Seems like the only thing they rely on is the name of the game. Anything with Call of Duty on it will sell like crazy, for no other reason than namesake.

1080pgamer1774d ago

Xbox One is weaker than PS4. All multiplats should run better on PS4, like most already are.

tcozzens1773d ago

So Assassins Creed IV, Battlefield 4, and COD, have better resolution on PS4. However.... EA Sports UFC, Need for Speed Rivals, and NBA 2k14 are all the same. Where the best looking multiplatform, in my opinion, is NBA 2k14 which is the same on both.

So all mulitplats should run better on PS4? IDK about that man.
