COD Ghosts PS4 review mentions poor frame rate

By Alan Ng - Nov 13, 2013

Are you planning to pick up Call of Duty Ghosts as your first launch title on PS4? If so, you may be busy trying to find some COD Ghosts PS4 reviews that are now popping up online before the big launch this weekend. Unfortunately though, some early criticisms have been made in reference to the COD Ghosts PS4 frame rate Vs the Xbox One version.

As most of you will know, there was a very big piece of information revealed recently, with the PS4 version of the game outputting at 1080p native, while the Xbox One version could only manage 720p native, upscaled to 1080p offering a much lower resolution than PS4.

While this is now a fact, it does appear that the Xbox One version currently has the edge with regards to frame rate. Many reviews that are going live have picked up on the fact that the PS4 version of COD Ghosts drops frame rate often.

Examples include Polygon’s review of COD Ghosts on PS4, who had the following the say with regards to the frame rate problem:

“As mentioned in the initial review, Call of Duty: Ghosts suffers from consistent framerate drops on the PS4, especially during multiplayer when action got especially hectic. The Xbox One version suffered no such drops, maintaining a steady 60 frames per second throughout.”

While this may be a worry for those picking up the game at launch, there is some good news to bring you at the same time. Developers Infinity Ward are already thought to be aware of the problem and are planning a patch after release to improve the situation.

Is it surprising though that the PS4 has frame rate drops often, at a higher resolution than the Xbox One version with 720p but a smoother frame rate? Give us your reaction to the news – Call of Duty Ghosts lands on PS4 this Friday.

    Humble pie?….You were soooo quick to shout out the Xbox one was worse and now you couldnt be more quiet about it.

      Just stating the facts

        Facts? in another article, the Xbox one is reffered to as the Xbone. You state you state facts but the bias nature in which you do so is marring. An equal post would be “PS4 Cod looks horrible compared to Xbox one”

          The Xbone IS worse. The fact that IW went with 1080 on the PS4 is that there was probably a few frame rate issues but it was borderline. Whereas for the Xbone, it was 720 as it must have been horribly unplayable at 1080. I think Alan probably does prefer the PS4, but that is because IT IS MORE POWERFUL. Even the most biassed of experts concede as much, albeit while defending the Xbone in other areas such as UI, multi media etc. If the PS4 was at 720, it would run infinitely smoother that the Xbone. You are not contending that the Xbone is more powerful than the PS4, are you?

          So just like the last gen, ps3 is more powerfull is it? thats why every single multiplatform game looks better on 360….and what a surprise, same situation now that the new gen has arrived. Best graphical launch game? Forza 5…1080, 60fps! Borderline….every review has said the same…that it looks far worse on ps4. Get your head out of the couds…dont beleive the lie that you have been spoon fed. I will be getting my ps4 and Xbox one but I know which one im looking more forward to. Its the same reason the 360 won….
