Infinity confirms rumors: 720P on XBox One 1080P on PS4

It is great to see both systems will be able to run the game at 60 FPS but COD Ghosts does not look like a super demanding game so why isn't it native 1080p on X1?

#3 Posted by Nictel (2364 posts) -

Can't wait to see how it looks and the Neogaf explosion that will surely follow.

@jimmyfenix: Time, I'd assume. Probably comparison of how much time and money it would take to implement versus the additional return.

Pff, all those crazy rumor mongers always so far off from the truth.

#7 Edited by shinjin977 (743 posts) -

It is classy of them to just come out and confirm it but what the hell is going on with X1? COD look kind of like crap, this cant be a spec issue. Are they behind on dev tool?

#8 Posted by TheHBK (5458 posts) -

It doesn't matter, the back of the box is still gonna say 1080p so it wont be a factor for those who don't read video game websites or forums, which is pretty much 99% of those who buy video games, especially the COD crowd.

Ohhhhh man. The internet is about to explode. Really disappointing news... makes me question the longetivity of the Xbox One if it can't render a older graphics engine game at 1080p. Hopefully it is just a question of optimization.

Damn, I cancelled my Xbox pre-order after reading the confirmation. Now I want to cancel my PS4 pre-order because it cannot stream my pirated videos or play my scratched 1995 mix CDs

That's really strange.

#13 Edited by MachoFantastico (4475 posts) -

Ouch! Some folks saying it's not a big deal but when you think about it, it sort of is. Difficult to forget that the Xbox One is the more expensive console to.

Least developers are honest though, I'll be passing on getting the consoles at launch and can only hope developers learn to lessen the limitations of Microsoft's console a little better as the years go by.

Hey guys wanted to make sure I'm in the right thread. This is the Sony fanboy circle jerk right?

Dude, Sony fanboy is not the preferred nomenclature. Sony crony, please.

What about PC? Oh, wait, sorry. Keep the circle jerking.

Yeah, this thread, with replies ranging from "it doesn't matter" to "the internet is going to explode" to "classy of them to come out and confirm it" is the Sony fanboy circle jerk.

But seriously, you have to admit that it's odd considering how graphically non-intensive this game is. Ultimately, it's hard to call this a sign of anything dire. Now if next years game comes out and it's 720 on X1 and 1080 on PS4, then it's a problem. This year, it's kind of whatever.

Dont you mean pc master race? It seems like everyone on this site is up their own ass with PC gaming and how great their rigs are.

@agnosticjesus: Way to contribute to the thread. Not all negative news = biased "fanboy" news. But, whatever, there is always that one guy who complains about other people complaining. Way to go!

@thehbk: 'HD Ready' vs 'Full HD'

That's the marketing spin from TV makers and Blu Ray makers. Look on the back of the box of any 360 game. I doubt it is 1080p native but I am sure it still says 1080p on the resolutions supported. That is because the 360 has a pretty good scaler built in and now the PS4 does too. So I bet the Xbox One and PS4 boxes of games will say 1080p no matter what native resolution is.

of course they will.Even Halo on 360 had 1080P on the box and it was not even 720P

No, no no IW. This isn't how your do this. You're meant to be cagey and only answer in half truths in order to send fanboys into mouth frothing frenzy of baseless speculation and unwarranted name calling.

Still I suppose the official difference in resolutions will at least lead to some entertainment.

#26 Edited by SomeDeliCook (2203 posts) -

Oh no clearly Microsoft doesn't care and clearly the Xbox One is going to be a huge failure of a console.

90% of people won't notice when they play. I have friends that play PC games at 640 resolution because they didn't know you could change it and when I show them they still switch it back. People are idiots

And not a single fuck was given.

#28 Edited by afabs515 (1003 posts) -

You know what's really striking to me? The fact that it runs at 60 FPS on both consoles. That's kind of alright. Obviously the XBONE being in 720p is kind of disappointing and doesn't seem to bode well for the future, but a good framerate is much more important to me than graphics. Also, the people who buy a console for CoD will probably only buy one console, so if that one console is the XBONE, they will most likely never make the comparison between 1080p and 720p. It's kind of like when you go to buy a TV. They usually have a splitscreen with a high quality image on one side and a low quality image on the other. But if you bought the worse TV, you would never have that higher-end reference to compare your picture with, so it would be fine. Honestly, I think this issue is being hyped a bit too much: it's very informative, but doesn't necessarily predict the success/doom of any system by any means.

720p 60fps on the Wii U also?

#30 Posted by bigjeffrey (4706 posts) -

Xbox720 more like it

What are the odds that Infinity Ward announcing this now is really them saying "Fuck You Microsoft" for throwing money at Respawn/Titanfall.

Does BF4 have the same disparity between the two platforms?

For BF4 it runs in 900P on PS4 and 720P on XBox one also there seems to be a kind of huge framerate difference as well as other minor stuff.

#35 Posted by AgnosticJesus (539 posts) -

There's no framerate issue between the two versions you idiot.

Who gives a shit about that. What I want to know is if it will be 1080 on Wii U.

It'll be 1080p on Wii U, 15FPS.

A CoD View Master?

I'd probably buy that.

720 or 1080, ugly games are ugly games.

This sounds more like IW not getting it properly optimised for launch than a disparity in system power considering my phone could probably run COD at 1080 at 60fps

#42 Posted by shivermetimbers (754 posts) -

Fuck that, will it run at 1080P 60FPS on my Commodore 64?

#43 Edited by SpaceInsomniac (3532 posts) -

Hey, been on the road 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 PS4. We optimized each console to hit 60 FPS and the game looks great on both. Still on the road, but glad to see the great reception to Extinction. Can’t wait for next week's launch.

Ooooh! UPSCALED! Sounds classy. :)

#44 Posted by yoshisaur (2606 posts) -

Does anyone realize that we are talking about launch software here? I mean, for Christ's sake, we've been through this already. Shit will look better & run better down the road; regardless of how stuff looks at launch. Stop falling for all the trips the industry is sending your way, and just play your games.

#45 Posted by Village_Guy (2480 posts) -

Well that sucks for the Xbox people. Anyway I don't really care - my TV is only HD Ready, and I'm not really planning on upgrading it anytime soon.

#46 Edited by SpaceInsomniac (3532 posts) -

So, a question for anyone who doesn't care about resolution differences:

Do you own a 1080p? If so, why did you pay more for a 1080p television, when you could have bought a 720p television instead? You would have either received a far larger screen for the same price, or spent a lot less on your television.
