Wouldn't the PS4 hardware upscale the 720p to 1080p?

PS4 is native 1080P not 720

Naga1846d ago (Edited 1846d ago )

Without getting online and downloading the update, the single player campaign is native 720p. That was confirmed by Activision.

... they said this in the article.

In this article:

I instantly saw the PS4 version to look better even before I even saw the console logo.
Guess it's my eyes.

not if captured on a 720p only display. or the PS4 is set to default to 720p in the settings menu.

OT: I have my pc currently hooked up on my TV that will soon run my PS4 on, I zoomed into both images so that they are to scale of being full screen on my TV, I then flipped between the two images, there is by far an increase in sharpness and clearer textures in the 1080p.

It upscales to 1080, yes. If you run a 1080 TV, of course. This was before the patch, just to be clear.

The PS4 version is in native full 1080p. But it is downscaled to 720p on single player. For you to activate the full 1080p you have to download the day one patch.

The XBOXONE version is in native 720p and it is up scaled to 1080p. But it is still 720 million pixels streched to fit on a 1080p screen.

"The PS4 version of “Call of Duty: Ghosts” was advertised to run natively at 1080p. However, Activision recently confirmed that players would have to connect online and applied a title update in order to increase the resolution. Otherwise, the single-player campaign is limited to only 720p."

That's from this very article, man. Did you even read it?

JAT23041846d ago (Edited 1846d ago )

It's still 1080p, regardless of this article. I was referring to the question of the PS4 hardware.

MRMagoo1231846d ago

Yes but whats the point in that , its just a little patch to tell the game it can now run in its native 1080p form as it was made to be, its being downscaled to 720p till it gets the patch to let it play at 1080p.

GamersRulz1846d ago (Edited 1846d ago )

Download the patch, then Voila...Native 1080p only on PS4 .

you know why there is no 1080p patch for Xbone? because it can't handle this resolution without the game crawling to 15fps. lol

Naga1846d ago (Edited 1846d ago )

@ JAT2304
Referring to what question of the PS4 hardware? The upscaling question from Funantic1? I think the appropriate response is simply yes. 720p games on the PS4 would be upscaled to 1080p. Thankfully, after the update, this is will be 1080p native.

@ MRMagoo123
There was no point beyond making a correction to an inaccurate statement. That's all it was. There's no fanboy agenda to be found here, if that's what you're asking.

Irishguy951846d ago


So ignorant, the PS4 version has Native 720p AND Native 1080p. No scaling is used. The 360 has 720p Native and I assume 1080p upscaled. All games are made with a MAXIMUM native resolution, and all Tv's screens have a Maximum resolution. All res's under that are all Native Res's. PC games have Native 360p - Native 1600p(Well, some games don't have the 1600p still). You can turn the resolution to 720 and your monitor can display that is a stretched out 1080p display just so that it fits on the screen fully.

It entirely depends on if the hardware is capable of running 1080p natively(Which taxes the hardware) on whether or not it's included in the game. Call of Duty ghosts is not 'downscaled' to 720p.

Please add "@ MRMagoo123" or something next time... You replied to my comment, and I thought you were talking to me.

"Did you even read it?"

Reminds me when *Ron_Danger* personally attacked me the other day over "Troy Horse"

I was simply quoting the incorrect use of the term.

Any way to make those pics full screen?

HappyWithOneBubble1846d ago

How can you tell the difference between native 1080p and upscaled 1080p?

kingcasper1846d ago

It really comes down to the quality of the monitor/tv..

If your monitor/tv isnt capable of showing 1080p or is a crap 1080p TV then the difference might not be so noticeable

if your screen is around 25-35 inches 1080p also becomes alot less noticeable aswell

and your distance from the screen also changes the way you see

to really see the difference have a good tv that does 1080p and go close to the screen..then switch to 720p and make sure your close.. youll notice a small improvement..

make sure the images shown during the test are real 1080p/720p.. maybe a blu ray movie @ 1080p that released in the last year

BitbyDeath1846d ago

Less pixels meaning less finer details of people/objects will be visible on the upscaled 1080p version
