So this has been the big debate over the last week and now we finally have a confirmation for you. Gamers have been wondering about the resolution for Call of Duty Ghosts PS4 Vs Xbox One and now Infinity Ward has confirmed – COD Ghosts is 720p on the Xbox One.

We had been telling you about the rumors that had been mounting up, with our last update on this even being called a ‘fanboy report’ by some Xbox One gamers who just didn’t want to believe what could be coming.

Now, we’re pleased to see that the debate is now over and we can all look forward to playing a great game on both platforms. Infinity Ward’s Mark Rubin has confirmed on Twitter that the Xbox One version is only 720p upscaled to 1080p, while the PS4 version will run Call of Duty Ghosts at 1080p native.

Here is what he said on Twitter, in its entirety:

Secret is out.
Secret is out.

As you can imagine, Xbox One fans are shocked with the news, especially with it coming out so close to launch and many having already pre-ordered the game. We have seen some fierce activity on Twitter, with a lot of you now threatening to cancel pre-orders and pick up the PS4 version instead, solely due to the resolution confirmation.

Here is a few example of just what 720p means to you, compared to 1080p native on PS4:

not having 1080p for a CoD game is it such a big deal? REALLY?? Specially when most of the PS3 and X360 games used to run at 1024×600…

WTF is wrong with the gaming community??

I think a lot of the backlash is coming from how Penello and company interacted with their audience. I have always argued that MSFT (Penello and MNelson to be more precise) should have never responded to rumors and speculation on forums such as Neogaf and Reddit. They should have kept their mouth shut and release info via more formal means. Penello has often come across as antagonistic, defensive and now deceptive with his Gaf and Reddit posts. A lot of what he has said has been proven to be evasive and misleading. People fell for the rhetoric and now find… Read more »

An educated guess, there won’t be much in it. On top of that, having a top TV makes a lot of difference. Having a decent TV isn’t good enough. Then people bang on about the cable you’re using, console settings and TV settings. Some TVs are better than others. All this 1080p and 720p nonsence, some people go on like it’s the end of gaming. But the Xbox One version will be better than the Xbox 360 version and probably the PS3 version. Can’t say I’ve been reading up on this game, but I’m assuming that on next gen consoles,… Read more »

I don’t even play COD anymore since COD4/MW time. Was the last innovative game in my opinion. Let them cancel their pre-orders for XBox Ones. It is their decision. We should just stop to judge a gamers decision which console he/she wants to buy. In the end they needs to be satisfied with their choice.

Looking at their post histories. NONE of them are Xbox fans. GFY PAUPERS. Especially the $0NÂ¥ paupers on NeoFAG and N4Gay!

All the people saying cancel X1 preorders since the Ps4 isn’t as powerful should cancel there ps4 preorders and get a gaming PC and you would be able to get BF4 and COD at 1080p 60 fps

It’s the final blow to Xbone. PS4 will reign supreme confirmed.

sony will be down in a fews years time just look at the income and loss the hardly make profit on any items they sell compared to microsoft

the reason to go to xbox one is a better multiplayer service.The reason why its 720p is because of dev tools. Forza 5 runs at native 1080p so it is definitely capable of handling power

bf4 runs at 720p and still looks better on xbox one than ps4 resolution is not everything

Whats funny is that everyone that will cancel their pre-orders for the XBOX one version…Jump on the PS4…A patch comes out for the Xbox one and fixes the issue..Those that waited will enjoy a fully dedicated servers..While the PS4 suffers from Lag!!

Just cancel your Xbox 180 right now and get a PS4. The PS4 is a lot more powerful so all third party multiplatform games will be better on the PS4 unless the develop holds back on the PS4. Don’t bother buying those games.

Obviously all of those tweets are planted PS4 Fanboys, Noone would dare cancel their XBOX1 Pre-order after knowing they’re paying more for a weaker console full of Jaggies!

Oh man between this and the Sony Unlimited debacle, next gen is full of fail. I’ll hold on to my PS3, PC and Wii U (no, it’s not next gen but it does rock).

The Xbox One is more than capable of native 1080p. So it’s odd there’s this many developers not taking advantage of it. Though it may have to do with Microsoft’s non-enforcement policy regarding resolution.
I have no intention in buying Ghosts. If I was I would probably get the PS4 version. Honestly I’m just a little disappointed here.

Looks like Anthony King rechecked his priorities with some follow up tweeting.

Anthony King ‏@RealAnthonyKing 10h
I legit might have to cancel my Xbox One COD Ghosts pre order and get the PS4 version.

J.J. ‏@CarbonPrimo 10h
@RealAnthonyKing The Xbox One version will be upscaled to 1080p even though its native 720p. Difference to PS4 is so minimal you wont tell

Anthony King ‏@RealAnthonyKing 10h
@CarbonPrimo yeah i know lol all my boys are getting Xbox One anyway, no point. I’m only getting exclusives for my PS4.

I bet the dog was the reason the xbone couldn’t handle the 1080p. Fur TressFx is also on the ps4 version the xbone had to have it removed.

I think it’s justified. As a PC gamer I can’t help but look at this and laugh. You can’t pull native 1080p on a gaming system in the year 2013?
Next gen indeed.

Cancelled. Sorry, I’m not paying $100 more for the same resolution as my 360. Looks like it’s PS4 this gen.

Truth finally comes out. I can’t believe how easy it is for people to fall for the market speak. They lied once, why would you believe them twice? “Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me.” Am i right?

But sadly, some people decided to get fooled a million times more. Very sad display.

Given that BF4 runs 720p on Xbox one and 900p on PS4 and the differences are quite minor (yes PS4 looks better)

I don’t see why you need to cancel the preorder. I mean it is upscaling to 1080p

lets just wait for the comparison and compare

Over-reacting. Xbox one is the definite version.

If some would cancel there X1 because of the resolution of COD (without even seeing the game) they are a complete idiot. And probably shouldnt be playing video games anyway because we know stupid people dont have money.

See what the internet has done. Miseducated all of these people that think the native resolution is a really big factor. When really…. its not.
