COD Ghosts PS4 VS Xbox One 1080p, 720p secret is out

By Updated on

It looks like the truth is finally out there. The big question that a lot of gamers wanted to know, is the final resolution for Call of Duty Ghosts on PS4 and Xbox One. It had been rumored that the PS4 version would be 1080p native and the Xbox One would not, but now it looks like we have confirmation to give you on this topic at long last.

Many gamers are wondering why we recently saw some PS4 footage of Call of Duty Ghosts running directly on the hardware, but the Xbox One version of the game was nowhere in sight. Skeptics are wondering if Microsoft’s secret is finally out, in relation to their version only being 720p, compared to the PS4 version which is 1080p native.

This week, Sony’s Adam Boyes has confirmed at the Brasil Game Show that COD Ghosts on PS4 is indeed shipping with 1080p native resolution. In comparison, Microsoft has yet to offer a confirmation on the resolution, with Albert Penello recently having this to say on the game, which many have deemed as being very evasive:

Another Tweet that we’ve included below tells the story further and gamers are starting to draw their own conclusions on this. The obvious question is though, how will Call of Duty Ghosts suffer on Xbox One at 720p, compared to PS4 running at 1080p if all of this is confirmed?

At the moment, judging by the way Microsoft are acting, it does look like Call of Duty Ghosts on Xbox One is only 720p – otherwise, they would surely have come out with a statement already if it was 1080p.

We will be bringing you some PS4 gameplay at 1080p soon, but in the meantime give us your reaction to the bombshell. Does 1080p vs 720p mean a big difference to you or not?

    I wonder how far your credibility will go down when you find out cod xbox one is 1080p

    • DSP

      I wonder how depressed you will be when you find out it’s not. It’s so obvious that it will be running at 720p upscaled to 1080p. Prepare yourself, kid.

      • Carlos

        Please show me some concrete evidence, I will be more than delighted to see your credible source!

        • Jesus H

          no you wouldn’t, you would surely go cry in the corner like all of your brothers in denial. Open your eyes and look at the facts, all hope is lost.

        • Carlos

          You know what you were right I did go cry in a corner then went back to my normal daily life.

    • NgTurbo

      Carlos, permission to speak.

  • Brian Bishop

    This article stinks. Do a little research and you would find that Neogaf doesn’t have a reliable source at all. They just like to hate Microsoft. It was said by Activision 4 months ago that it would run at 1080….Activision! You know, the designers of the game. Get a life.

    • NgTurbo

      Why so touchy? We hope as much as you that COD Ghosts on Xbox One will be 1080p! We’re just informing everyone about the situation as it’s unfolding.

      • GK15

        It’s not informing though. It said confirmed to be 720p on XB1 and most certainly is not.

        • Carlos

          Thanks for pointing that out everybody is saying it’s confirmed yet they don’t know who!

    • Lacerz

      And Ryse was shown at a native 1080p before being downgraded to 900p. Things change. In fact, I suspect Microsoft will change many of it’s 180s once people purchase the X1.

      • GK15

        I’m pretty sure Ryse was confirmed to be running on XB1 hardware at E3. And not sure if it was downgraded, but Crytek has said that it looks and plays better than it did at E3.

      • Carlos

        Yes they downgraded it for better shaders, besides 1080 vs 900 you can barely tell,080p vs 720 is easier to tell

  • Tim Miller

    The report says “we finally have confirmation” then they offer nothing but speculation. Infinity Ward confirmed earlier this week in an interview with OXBM the that COD Ghosts for the Xbox One is running at 1080p 60 fps. This is the 3rd article this week from P-R. net that was fan boy based and should never have been posted. It’s becoming known that there trying to keep their numbers up for the almighty advertiser dollars. It’s going to back fire!

    • Chris Adamson

      have to you a link to this Tim?

    • Joey1013

      Nice, so you have to state that a Xbox one game is 1080 quite a shame for your junky console that you have to confirm if its next gen. It seems you have some internet what about PS4 still over your broke box? Good luck with the system if it lasts you past Christmas.

      • Tim Miller

        Apparently you can read English but your tiny brain can’t decipher its meaning. Your intelligence level obviously is rather low so I will make this easy on you. All you PS fanboys ran your mouths just like this with the PS3 and you got a serious beatdown. Now your running your mouths again and it is very laughable. Now, as of this morning Sony is in total damage control with all the reports of the PS4 overheating issues. So good luck with your crappy console HAHAHAHAHAHA

        • Ken Chad Harris

          PS3 outsold the 360. The PS3 was released a year later, so it took time to catch up. Plus PS3 exclusives looked better than anything the 360 could do. I own a 360, PS3 and a Wii U. I am buying the Xbox One and PS4. So, I am being neutral.

        • Tim Miller

          Hey Ken you must have missed the sign at the front door of this forum. It reads “Anyone admitting to owning a Wii U must immediately jump from the tallest building”.

        • Ken Chad Harris

          I must admit, it was a mistake to buy it on my part. My PS3 is my favorite system for two reasons. Blu Ray and free online. I love the 360 online. And the God for games two free games. I am divided with the Xbone and PS4. I love both. The Wii U however is the worst next/current gen system.

    • NgTurbo

      Anything to say now Tim after my ‘fanboy report’? It’s been confirmed at 720p on Xbox One, 1080p native on PS4.

      • Tim Miller

        What is your source? Where is the confirmation? Infinity Ward has not retracted there statement that COD Ghosts is running at native 1080p. I can’t find any actual source to confirm what your saying? Sooooo all I hear from you is Blah Blah Blah

  • Tim Miller

    Infinity Ward’s executive producer Mark Rubin in an Interview for this months issue of OXM states very clearly that the graphics from COD Ghosts look amazing on the Xbox One. He goes on to say that it’s running at native 1080p 60 fps. I posted the link after yo asked and the admin didn’t approve it.

  • Peter Romansky

    If nearly every 360 game was 1080p then why the hell would this One produce some 720p crap? I hope I don’t have to trade my reservation on XB1 for a PS4.

    • Joe Mama

      Sony is wasting their time with these rumors. Both PS4 and X1 will both be sold out thru xmas. If you cancel your X1 reservation somebody else will grab it within 5 minutes. Rumor mongering won’t affect anything. By January, when consoles may actually become available again, it will be clear that there is no performance difference between X1 and PS4. Other than X1 has a far superior motion controller

      • Ed

        Peter; this next gen consoles are increasing the graphics load of the games, equals to more polygons and more shading calculations on the fly, this requires computer power. (I am a developer) So if the system is not capable to handle both high graphics and high frame rate; you get to the dilemma of better graphics/lower frame rates or low graphics/high frame rate, looks like that X1 is going the first route.

        Joe; you may be wrong with your statement, is a fact that PS4 will out sells the X1 by a 2:1 ratio this holidays and also its a fact that performance wise the system architecture on the PS4 is much better than the X1 around a 50% in FLOPs calculations, game developers working on both consoles, had revealed that a game running in 1080p (1920×1080) at 30 fps on the PlayStation 4 would only be able to do 1600×900 at 20fps on the Xbox One. In addition the Kinetic is just a device for Kids or Elderly so I don’t expect this being a pivot point for any advantage.

        • Tim Miller

          Ed, if your going to write such outrageous statements as the PS4 will outsell the X1 by a 2-1 margin you need to have facts to support it. Since you didn’t, your only stating your opinion and thus you should state it as such.

        • Joey1013

          Its call google Tim use it bro. Its already confirmed PS4 is outselling Xbox in preordres 2-1. With internet, you can’t use excuse that you don’t know. Shut up if you don’t know facts.

        • jflex

          Facts came out this morning both systems are to sell 2.5 million to 3 million over the holidays.

        • Carlos

          That’s not what the Resident Evil dev said!

        • Lifeliketexture

          In case you didn’t know, the RE creator hates playstation and obviously talks it down whenever he gets a chance. He once said, “If Resident evil 4 comes out on playstation I will cut my own head off.” Don’t take what he says too seriously.

      • Lacerz

        X1 does have a superior motion controller. I don’t care about motion controls though. I care about the other hardware, and PS4 has the superior hardware where it counts.

        • Carlos

          I’m actually excited for the kinect even though i won’t be playing any motion controlled games except D4 which looks sick. It makes it easier to control your Xbox and skyping your friends while kicking their asses is awesome; not to mention being able to control your TV volume, input, and cable is awesome tech!

    • Lifeliketexture

      I have news for you that may be shocking: Xbox360 only has a single game that runs at a native 1080p, Virtua Tennis. Everything else is what is called an upscale, stretching the video out which looks worse. Microsoft has been lying to you and its consumers for 7 years. The only console which actually has some games running at 1080p this last gen was the PS3, not all of them though. The back of the box of a same game, like GTA V on PS3 will say 720p, that is the truth. On Xbox360 however, it will say 1080p, a lie. You can google everything I’ve just said and confirm everything for yourself if you don’t believe me. By the looks of things, its going to be the same thing all over again.
      Trade your reservation from X1 to a PS4? You never should have considered an X1 in the first place. Cancel that now for a PS4 and never look back.

  • KySky

    I think the article’s title would have been better served if it read “COD Ghost PS 4 1080p Native Confirmed” rather then misleading the whole debate.
    What the Native resolution for X1 will be will have to wait a little longer. Either way it doesn’t change my mind about which console I’m waiting to order. It’s not based on one game. It’s partly based on future games. By the way I’m going for PS4 either way.

  • Josh101

    Posters GK15 and Joe mama may be extreme fanboys or PR managers for MS. Joe mama just copy and pasted the same thing in this article as one in CinemaBlend and it stinks with PR management.
    On topic, it seems like the way people are dancing around the subject that this may be the case. It’s already a fact that PS4 has a better setup with a more powerful GPU and 8GB’s of GDDR5 ram. There’s no denying those facts. The cloud won’t help the gap in specs. 32mb’s ESRAM with 8GB’s of DDR3 does NOT equal 8GB’s of unified GDDR5.

    • Carlos

      The GPU’s are the same, the PS4 just has a higher grade of ram than the Xbox. Also the CPU on the PS4 is clocked faster, but the Xbox One’s CPU has more transistors than the PS4 and clocked at lower speed. Now a little bit more difficult in deciding which of the two is the “better” console. I personally don’t care I just hate the lies people are spreading about both systems in order to justify their own decisions.

      • YnotNDalton

        The gpu’s are not the same lol… ps4 gpu is 1.84 tfs vs 1.20 for x1..

  • Mista Decoy

    lmao do it matter we all getting Ps4′s anyways am i right. lol

  • Ken Chad Harris

    Xbone = 8Gb ddr3 = Better for applications and other tasks. Fast enough to push next gen games.
    PS4 = 8Gb gddr5 = Better for games and graphics. Not that good for small applications.
    What that means is games will eventually look better on PS4, due to its memory and superior graphics. Xbone will be better at everything else, but not gaming. Even with its overclocked graphics.
