We'll never mislead you about Call of Duty's graphics on Xbox One, says Sledgehammer

Sledgehammer Games isn't in the business of screening top-tier PC-based demos that are literally impossible to achieve on a console, the developer's co-founder Michael Condrey have told OXM. As far as Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is concerned, what you see is what you get. (Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, Xbox One)

TBH I don't think COD devs ever shown anything different then their reveals. As much as I am tired of COD and such, still gotta give them that for not misleading anyone there
NextLevel  +   515d ago
Agreed. They got the resolution (882p) out of the way very quickly.
MonstaTruk  +   515d ago
AND...the lower frame rates. Don't forget the lower frame rates for a twitch shooter that they'd like you to get out of your system talking about, also...
headwing45  +   515d ago
It's not like the Advance Warfare gameplay was raising the bar or anything... the game was running 40 - 50 frames a second.
Bigpappy  +   515d ago
Where did you guys find info on the frame rate and resolution. Was that in the full interview?

The writer of the article wrote: " The game's resolution is "ahead" of that of Call of Duty: Ghosts, though Sledgehammer has yet to lock it down".
Mr Pumblechook  +   515d ago
I'm glad that despite the Microsoft marketing deal Sledgehammer are being open about the Xbone resolution and frame rate.

@monsta Truk

No offense to you but, why do you keep bringing that up from a captured video at E3? 6 months before release. If there is one thing I have learned about COD. 60 FPS is KING.
NatureOfLogic_  +   515d ago
@ DLC, Too bad Xbox One struggles with both resolution and fps compared to PS4.
DLConspiracy  +   515d ago

That wasn't my point. Nor was I flame baiting. Just seems like an attempt to perpetuate unsubstantiated rumor (or inconclusive/finalized stats) as fact just to be able to downplay something.

Quit complaining about the frame rate of a demo over five minths out. Especially if you have know desire to own said game. They have plenty of time to optimize. Also take into account it was the single player campaign. CoD has always run slightly less frames and spikes during campaign. Also if you watch the frame rate video... over 75% of those spikes came in cut scenes. That is not going to affect me in my CoD experience
Pro Racer  +   515d ago
Not sure how showing the game looking its best is considered misleading. Its not like they're showing prerendered footage and calling it gameplay. Either way, even on PC, CoD has never been anything special in terms of graphics.
Bryanarchy101  +   514d ago
@Pro Racer

Watch_Dogs is a prime example of how a game can be misleading. If you remember correctly the game came under fire since release. Its graphics and such were toned down in a very obvious manner and this angered a lot of people as they got a game that looked graphically inferior to what was shown years ago, even on a PC.

It's one thing to show a game at its best, and another thing to release a game that looks nothing like what was shown in a demo.
AngelicIceDiamond  +   515d ago
@Nitro True.

The graphics are definitely better. The gameplay looks same o however.

It has the looks finally now they need to address that gameplay.
k3rn3ll  +   515d ago
If anything the only gameplay change they should back is take it back a few years. Ghost multiplayer was awful. Worst I've played. That has to change. Thats what people buy the game for. Some buy for single player. But tens of millions buy for online. Im sure they know that
n4rc  +   515d ago
No.. They just mislead you on everything else.. Lol

Best cod ever.. All previous issues that we don't admit exist are now fixed! Lol
Gamer1982  +   514d ago

ironfist92  +   514d ago

randomass171  +   514d ago
I think the point is that CoD games generally don't get shadily downgraded.
ironfist92  +   514d ago
Well yeah, only coz COD games are terrible to begin with lol
XboxDD  +   515d ago
I want to believe them.
BattleTorn  +   515d ago
I think the appropriate reaction we - as gamers - should have regarding the PC-based E3 demo is that we should focus our praise toward developers who demo their game in-engine, like Naughty Dog.

We should praise devs that demo their games running on the consoles we plan to play them on.

I wish I saw more E3 videos begin with "The following footage was captured directly from a [Xbox One or Playstation 4]"

I don't feel grateful about it...

All footage used to promote Console Games need to be shown running/captured direct from Consoles.

Anything less is borderline fraud.
breakpad  +   515d ago
stupid developer says stupid things it is possible to mislead people about Cod graphics which are already shit and previous gen ....make us a favor Craptivision and go away from games industry ..Cod is already dying and people starts understanding this robbery lame and cheap made IP

no to everything you said
k3rn3ll  +   515d ago
I agree ... everything you have said is flat out wrong
but if you had played so much of the game that wasnt in the demo maybe you could tell us more about it. because that demo was definantly not last gen. Id say that demo was at least 3x better t h an any of the cod games on 360 that i played. And i played them all. Or do you even buy CoD? Or are u just some hipster that loves to trashanything that millions of people love because your awful and can't carry above a .75 KDR?
OculusRift  +   514d ago
Oh snap... rekt
MonstaTruk  +   515d ago
So. Now that we got the specs out of the way conclusively for the Xbox One version, and Sledgehammer was so NICE enough to tell us how honest a group of guys they are, how long will it take for news to break on how the PS4 version "just doesn't play right" a la COD Ghosts, because...?

SwiftArsonist  +   515d ago
900p on xbox one, 1080p on ps4, dedicated servers on x1, dlc first on xbox one, 60fps locked on both. not that big of a difference. both versions will come out fine. as long as the fps stays locked im golden
True_Samurai  +   515d ago
When did they say 900p on x1?
Half_Minute_Hero  +   515d ago
They didn't have to say it. It will either be 900 or 1080P on the X1.
DLConspiracy  +   515d ago
I think that's a fair assumption. Right there with you man. That's how I feel and the back & forth about res is a moot point. Now that XB1 is the home to MLG.
dazzrazz  +   515d ago
@ lonelygoner

30 to 50 fps on x1 ain't locked framerate at all :>
DLConspiracy  +   515d ago
The release is 5 months away. Let's wait and see what they do. COD never compromises frames for their games. They realize how important frame rates are.
r2oB  +   515d ago

Don't you mean 4 months away? November is only 4 months away. Not to mention they have to go gold prior to release, so realistically they have closer to 3 months to finish the game.
SwiftArsonist  +   514d ago
still months away in development. all cod end up 60fps hence my comment.
Utalkin2me  +   515d ago

Where did you get the PS4 will not have dedicated servers? Just curious, considering there has not been a announcement of such.
SwiftArsonist  +   514d ago
i didnt say the ps4 wont have dedicated servers i said xbox one since we all know thats the case. im sure ps4 will have some sort of dedicated servers. dont go the fanboy route im just posting what i think might happen. nothing concrete, just my opinion. good day
danny818  +   515d ago
This is true. You its crazy to say it but activision have really grown on me... And EA is just slipping. With EA sleeping in bed with Xbox im prefering Activision alot more nowadays
BattleTorn  +   515d ago
so basically you'll like anyone that distances themselves from Microsoft....
listenkids  +   514d ago
"With map packs FIRST on xbox" is hardly distancing.
Summons75  +   515d ago
No but you're trying desperately to pretend the gameplay is different and we all know it's not.
wcas  +   515d ago
Every time X1 version resolution and frame rates for games are questioned developers get evasive and side step the issues because of MS money being thrown at them. Being evasive is not much different than being misleading. They already have a pretty good idea if not full knowledge of what the final rez will likely be or not be. Sledgehammer is probably being quiet because they know it will not be 1080p for X1, otherwise they would speak up. Not being straight up about what they realistically see the final resolution for the X1 being, is like someone saying....I didn't mislead my girlfriend, our relationship is good. I just never told her I was cheating. Not much of a difference between the two, you were still cheating. With holding information can be misleading.
BX81  +   515d ago
Lol. Your comment went south when you referenced your made up girlfriend.
wcas  +   514d ago
LOL, it's just a metaphor but I see your point, it really wasn't needed.
BX81  +   514d ago
I got what you were saying. When people use that it reminds me of this show I watched a long time ago. The kid didn't have a prom date just a sweater on a chair. He kept telling his friends she was in the bathroom. Lol. I gotta use it every time..... Kinda depressing now that I think about it.....
Chard  +   515d ago
I just watched the E3 gameplay demo, and there was barely any gameplay in it! COD may still have its appeal, but it's no longer the game it was when I first got into it.
quenomamen  +   514d ago
You played any of the last 7 CODs ? Then you basically already played this one too.
MasterCornholio  +   515d ago
I hope not and that goes for all developers making games for any platform.

-Glares at Rocksteadys fake PS4 demo-

I hate you guys....... Especially after staying up to 3 AM to watch the Sony conference and being amazed by the demo only to hear news of it being fake.

drjonesjnr  +   515d ago
Didn't they said cod ghosts was gonna be 1080p 60fps at Microsoft February reveal ? Lies all lies lol
corvusmd  +   515d ago
If what we have already seen was running on XB1 (which it was) I'd say we are already in good hands with how much better this game looks over Ghosts. There is still plenty of time (and the June XDK) to refine things and get them solid, but to be honest, it's ALREADY worlds above Ghosts was on any platform. I thought I was gonna be done with COD (except Treyarch ones), esp after Titanfall came out, but honestly it seems like I'll just Skip the infinity Ward ones, they've been horrible since MW2
inf3cted1  +   515d ago
Of course they wont. Its always the same thing, you cant be mislead
Scatpants  +   515d ago
I'm really looking forward to seeing what they're going to do with the fish AI this year. I heard a rumor they might even jump out of the water this time. I'll believe it when I see it though.
tommygunzII  +   515d ago
What they are saying is that it won't be 1080p on Xbox, but at least we will be honest about it.
DoggyBiscuit  +   515d ago
Xbox fan boys don't be mad if u really care that much about graphics then buy a PS4
marcofdeath  +   514d ago
XB1 will be 1080p.. but if it looks better than the PS4 FAN BOYS will say MS payed them. So let me be the first to say it, just like withBF4 v.s. HARDLINE is 1080p with the new SDK. This game will be 1080p (SP)30+fps (MP)60FPS.. AS one developer said:

"Don't make the mistake of judging a console by the quality of the launch window games. Let's have this discussion again in two years when we have games that are actually using engines designed for NEXT GEN HARDWARE instead of ported last gen engines adapted for next gen.

We haven't seen anything truly next gen yet..."

@doggybiscuit if ps4 fans really care about graphics then they should buy pc's where you will see a real difference. Not just on e looking a little bit sharper than the other.
quenomamen  +   514d ago
Sorry Clawhammer but if you ain't misleading about COD then you ain't doing it right. Bull shiating about COD is a long held and deeply honored tradition. Now tell everybody how this one has a
" new engine" and how this one is " truly groundbreaking ".
jairusmonillas  +   514d ago
the last COD doesn't even look next gen so im not surprised. lol.
HumanatPlay  +   514d ago
I love a good shooter with immersive graphics. I think its best to love things for what they are. I personally can not waste another moment of my life hating anything, its tiring. So I will pick this up @ release. I can't help that I love Kevin Spacey.

corroios  +   514d ago
This game is just another cross gen, With average graphics, like all Cod. People will talk two weeks and then is washed away...

Nothing ground breaking from an old formula to make Money... Lots of copy/paste, old animation...

The arent pushing nothing because of the parity clause... Sad, just another Money hunger company...
Artemidorus  +   514d ago
Of course they won't, still using a very old engine code, year after year.

By the way for everyone slating Xbox One yet again this game will no doubt be the lead platform on Playstation 4 with it's extra pixels (make sure you count them since it's so important) and you can keep that garbage.
