Call of Duty: Ghosts on PS4 Pulls Ahead of Xbox One, Too

Posted by Sammy Barker

The gap's widening

Call of Duty may be considered an Xbox franchise due to Microsoft’s longstanding partnership with Activision, but it seems that the next generation version of the upcoming Call of Duty: Ghosts will look superior on the PlayStation 4. Responding to a slew of previously unsubstantiated online rumours, Infinity Ward’s executive producer Mark Rubin has confirmed that the impending first-person shooter will run in 1080p on Sony’s system, compared to 720p on the Xbox One. Both versions will boast the series’ customary 60FPS framerate.

“Hey, I've been on the road for the last couple weeks so haven't had a chance to update, but wanted to confirm that for Xbox One we're 1080p upscaled from 720p, and we're native 1080p on the PS4,” the developer Tweeted earlier today. “We optimised each console to hit 60FPS and the game looks great on both. Still on the road, but I’m glad to see the great reception to Extinction. I can't wait for next week's launch.”

Coupled with this week’s Battlefield 4 resolution discrepancies – a game which Microsoft has also partnered with – this will prove a blow to the Xbox One. We’ve known for some time that the Redmond-based manufacturer’s system may be slightly less powerful than the Japanese giant’s newest machine, but now the differences are really starting to take hold. Of course, how much it all actually matters very much depends on you. Whatever your opinion, know that you’re probably going to be safe if you plump up for the PS4 version of multiformat games moving forwards.

Do people really care about this stuff. I mean it doesn't seem to help the PC all that much.

Sammy... The diference between 1080 and 720 is huge.. I have my own gaming room but the TV is no much further from me than a computer monitor... I can cleary see difference between 720 and 1080p. How? I game more often on my PS3 but when i game on my PC 1080p the difference is huge.

The point is sammy : We pay 100 dollar less for a more powerfull machine Priceless

@Sanquine Yeah, it's pretty crazy when you consider that the significantly weaker hardware is also more expensive. I suppose it's alright if you want Kinect.

@Legendaryboss I think cloud computing is something for the future... How can it refresh as fast as a couple of miliseconds without stuttering?

Looks like the Xbox won't be dragging down multiplatform games this gen, which is going to incite some pretty humorous flame wars - I'd better stock up on popcorn.

I don't care about the console vs. console stuff but part of why it took until 2009 for me to start gaming on PS3 more was because 360 just ran games better. Good to know that right from the start, PS4 third party games I'm looking forward to will be worth the money and have full effort put into them rather than being shoddy ports. When CoD, which is almost looked at as an Xbox is exclusive, is said to perform better on PS4, that's huge. Definitely not worried about Destiny now.

The reason its a big differences with BF4 is several thigs the PS4 does better, like framerate, higher resolution etc. Where as COD Ghosts it just higher resolution with the PS4 1080p, and XboxOne 720p.

@Sanquine Ghosts is even more than that
1080 is 1920×1080: 2,073,600 pixels
720 is 1280×720: 921,600 pixels
Thats over 100% pure pixels being rendered on Ps4. The internet is even more hilarious today than it was with the BF4 news. Wanna hear the latest excuse? It due to the complexity of the Esram. Im being serious Its obviously been debunked when you factor in that the 360 had pretty much the same memory set-up. I need to grab some more popcorn for a second run through of these forums

@MadchesterManc No, i just heard on another gaming site... It's the secret sauce ( BBQ) or Maybe because the cloud isn't ready for some super powered fragging
