COD Advanced Warfare Xbox One Vs PS4 resolution

By Alan Ng - May 11, 2014

If you are already looking forward to Call of Duty Advanced Warfare on Xbox One or PS4, we have an early heads-up on the inevitable COD Advanced Warfare PS4 Vs Xbox One debate that will be made with regards to resolution.

You won’t need us to remind you how important gamers treat this piece of information. Just think back to Call of Duty Ghosts as a classic example, when it was revealed that the game could only output at 720p resolution, compared to the PS4 version which was 1080p native in comparison.

This was seen as a huge shock considering that Call of Duty is now an Xbox brand and the obvious assumption to make is that Microsoft nor Activision wouldn’t want the same criticism to come with Call of Duty Advanced Warfare developed by Sledgehammer Games.

Unfortunately though, another storm may be coming. The digital gurus over at Digital Foundry have already completed their analysis of the ‘Kevin Spacey’ debut trailer for the game and have concluded that it doesn’t hit full 1080p resolution either.

They have stated that the game is actually closer to 900p and have pinpointed that specific trailer as running at 882p pixels. While this is obviously much better than COD Ghosts, it may be somewhat surprising to see yet another Xbox One game, as high profile as Call of Duty, fail to hit the standard 1080p benchmark.

On a more pleasing note, we should remind you that this is only the very first trailer for the game. Sledgehammer Games are obviously still in development and we could see a higher resolution before the game is launched in November.

Some gamers have already had their say on what they think about this on social media – take a look at the above Tweet for evidence of this. We think it is early days ourselves, but then again the Digital Foundry team are rarely wrong with their findings.

If COD Advanced really doesn’t run at 1080p again on Xbox One, how will you react to this? Do you think this is acceptable for a ‘next-gen’ console, or does gameplay matter the most to you over performance?
