Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 to Run at 1080p/60fps on PS4

Some new details have emerged concerning the frame rate and resolution of the upcoming shooter Call of Duty: Black Ops 3.

While it was previously hinted at that the game will have a resolution 1080p on the PlayStation 4, that information has now been confirmed. It has also been confirmed that both the Xbox One version of the game and the PS4 version will run at 60 frames-per-second (fps), although the resolution of the Xbox One version has not yet been revealed.

Maybe this game will not require patches for fixing the frame rate, like in the case of COD AW PS4 edition (for campaign part).

With this generation, almost every game received a patch to sort various issues, especially with PS4:
- Dying Light - patch for including AF, better LOD and improved lighting (1.05 patch);
- DmC - patch for the inclusion of AF;
- GTAV - patch for solving the frame rate in traffic (PS4 runs at a perfect 30 fps now);
- Resident Evil Revelations 2 - patch for solving the frame rate issues (not totally solved);
- COD AW - patch for solving the frame rate issues in campaign (PS4 runs at almost perfect 60 fps now).

And a lot of other examples could be added to the above list.

Strangely that PS4 games seems to be less optimized than the X1 counterpart (the above examples do not apply for X1). Maybe due to the fact that it has more power, the developers do not put to much effort in optimizing the games for PS4.

Actually I had similar issues on X1 CoD AW campaign, but only specific sequences, oddly enough the scripted ones that didn't have much going on.

There's still bad lag on the menus of the PS4 version, especially if you set MP or Zombies to default and resume from rest.

Reading your comment I'll take a Wild guess and say you've got an xbox one lol

On the contrary, I have a PS4 and I like it very much. You can check.

I just wanted to emphasize that nowadays almost every game needs a patch to solve an issue that should haven't been in the first place.

Also, what I wanted to underline is that the minor issues in the PS4 version is not due to the hardware but due to less time allocated for optimization.

article like this is good for starting fires and will take focus off of:
Will the game suck!
Will the game have dedicated servers? (not just promises).

Travis37081325d ago

I never experinced any frame drops in the campaign. You people care about every little frame to much.

LegoIsAwesome1325d ago

So are you saying that X1 never had any sort of patches to fix those issues your saying about the PS4 versions of the game?? X1 must be a beast then.

gfk3421325d ago

I would not say a beast but rather not enough time allocated for the PS4.

In all my above examples the PS4 has better resolution and, after the patch, better frame rate.

RocketScienceLvlStuf1325d ago (Edited 1325d ago )

Not Really.

You are forgetting the fact that in GTA V's case the PS4 was the best performing version along with being the best version graphically.

The PS4 frame rate dropped a little during high speed in the city yet the Xbone version dropped many more times during hectic moments in which the PS4 breezed through. The high speed traffic thing must have just been a bug so they fixed it in a patch.


I'm wondering if neither company has a marketing deal for COD this year. Last year the debut trailer was running on xbone and there where no details about PS4 (resolution etc) until after launch.

This year things are different. It's looking like neither company has the marketing deal or Sony has.

What's with peoples obsession with a demonic turtle that eats children?

I honestly don't know why many people end their comments with Kappa.

MasterCornholio1325d ago (Edited 1325d ago )

I thought they already confirmed 1080P for the PS4 version. The only version that they didn't make a comment on was the XB1 version.

Rookie_Monster1325d ago

PC 4k...nuff said. If you care that much about spec, that is the version to get. The last COD was also 1080p and 60fps on PS4 so no surprise there...probably not locked 60fps just like the previous version.
