Does the Call of Duty: Ghosts PS4 patch fix everything?

Call of Duty: Ghost's PlayStation 4 debut hasn't gone too smoothly, with some reviews citing noticeable performance issues - even compared to the 360 game - along with the recent revelation that the single-player campaign is only running at 720p and not the full HD 1080p resolution promised by the developer.

Curiously, it turns out that the resolution issue is just a bug that slipped passed quality assurance testing, and this has since been resolved in a day-one patch. All retail and download copies of Call of Duty: Ghosts are affected, so in order to get the full 1080p experience you'll need to download and install the update when it goes live in time for the PS4's European release on the 29th November.

"there's certainly a noticeable difference between the PS4 and PC versions of Ghosts, even if the two share many of the same graphical upgrades over the current-generation console releases."

"initial impressions reveal a downgrade in texture resolution, slightly lower quality shadows, and less advanced ambient occlusion offering less coverage across the scene." ... "the PS4 game isn't quite as sharp as the PC release despite now rendering at the same resolution: it turns out that post-process anti-aliasing - perhaps FXAA - is used on the PS4"

You really dont need much AA for the PS4, with viewing distance of 4-10 feet vs. 1 or 2 feet on PC. Also if you compare like hardware, the PS4 is doing great w/ mostly 60 fps. TBH I never played at 60 fps on PC, I would sacrifice it for higher graphic settings. It is nice to know that we are all on the same playing field on consoles. Really dont need 60, 40 is sufficient so long as the spikes dont go below 24. I dont think you will notice much of a difference at 4+ feet. As for Xbone, the jaggies will probably be noticable as well the resolution if you are used to gaming at 1080p

We don't have to guess since there's a metric for just this kind of thing. Google Image search for "viewing distance resolution."

Assuming a distance of 10 feet and a 50 inch monitor, you're in "8K good enough" territory. What that means is that you're just beginning to be able to enjoy the benefits of 8K (7680x4320) over 4K.

You'd have to be using a 23 inch TV from 10 feet away to not notice the jaggies. In other words, anti-aliasing would be very beneficial in any practical setup.

While it doesnt look bad in 720p, and definitely looks sharper and cleaner in 1080p, heck even the colors look better in 1080p. I'll take 1080p with a little bit of frame drop (which btw, i can barely feell or tell) or the blurrier 720p with an overall smoohter framerate drop. The game still feels smooth as hell to me throughout 99% of the game

And to aquamala, why would you post that? we know the PS4 cant compete with PCs, but heck the X1 version cant even compete with the PS4 version

PS4 wasn't supposed to be 1080p apparently.

black0o1763d ago

Shhh...Bob feeds of deniability. That's why he's trying so hard to keep people blind...and failing.

Kayant1763d ago

Yh sure it wasn't..... *Rolls eyes*


trancefreak1763d ago

1080p Does not fix C.O.D. But it will defintally look clearer

Why? Another brainfart?

[Lukas_Japonicus + 1d 2h ago
All those times the Xbox fans said "lol, the PS4 isn't powerful enough to run 1080p 60fps" and it was because the console is TOO powerful, haha, gotta love it.

Thrust,belking,palaven and the rest of you guys, what do you have to say now?]

I have not seen so much butthurt on N4G for a long time!

I patched Ghost's and started getting hard offs, and file system checks w/ PS3 disc but after (on ps4) the 1.51 patch that seized. Thank heavens, I have also experienced hard offs with PS homepage on browser, and holding down ps button while COD loads to check battery life.

Anyone else experience hard offs, and causes? ..makes me nerveous, but she just gets a lil bit warm is all. Cant be heat.

Did they fix the spawning? Thanks.

Majin-vegeta1763d ago

You have a better chance of winning the lottery than that happening xD

MegaMohsi1763d ago

They've patched the game again this morning to 1.06, not sure what it did.

Revolver_X_1763d ago

PS3 patch claims to have fixed the spawn system. Lo' and behold, enemies still spawn literally 10 feet behind me. Seriously, Ghosts maps are huge. Yet, the spawns are the worse.

BX811763d ago

They aren't huge. Well I guess if you compare it to the typical gerbal wheel maps cod is use to lately.
