Final blow to Xbox One? COD: Ghosts - 720p @ Xbox One, 1080p @ PS4

It's saddening, really. There's no marketing spin good enough to undo this damage IMHO

    if you want to buy a console for graphics why not just buy a gaming computer?

    I think the prostitute mod corrupted your game files man. -elhefen

    Not really. Its only call of duty after all and it could be as simple as getting finished drivers from Microsoft. Still getting it and can't wait. The system looks to be so much better then the PS4. If I need top notch GFX I'll stick to my PC.

    I do love how the PS4 needs a Patch to make pretty much anything on the system work though and they need to remove the DRM from the system.

    I'm not a console player at all, bought an XBOX360 just to play Red Dead Redemption (and it was worth it).

    But there's a whole lot (millions) dedicated console players who like their console games and their joypads and their relaxed couch gaming. I understand them completely. They are also much more stable market for game developers.

    Sorry, but not the only one, there's a dedicated thread here to Battlefield 4 lower-res Xbone fiasco already, and those two games are huge. We can only expect more of this.

    Anything can happen in the long run, but I bet PS4 start will be way better in sales.

    It says right in the post on kotaku that the xbox one will bump it up to 1080p. Please read the post before you comment on it.

    Its going to be better in sales because its cheaper and that's really the only reason .  What I want to know is how they upscale a video game? It really makes no since to me. Its at 1920x1080 or its not. I guess I'll just have to wait and see this because I've never heard of upscaling a video game.

    Up-scaling it and being native arent the same picture quality.  Like upscaling a dvd is still not as good as a blu-ray

    "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."

    You're not able to read, or comprehend what was said? UPSCALED is the word. Google it

    It matters only as a marketing point. A few people may notice it in side-by-side comparisons on HD TVs at Best Buy, but most people are gonna buy whatever their friends have; because the online gaming is almost never cross-system compatible (intentionally, based on Microsoft's XBL licensing limitations)

    At home - no one cares. No one goes out and buys games based on 720 vs 1080; if they did, we would have had a new generation of consoles out 3 years ago.

    Xbone vs PS4 isn't a battle of games, it's a battle for the couch. If Microsoft can really get in bed with the cable companies and provide TV content through XBL - they win, regardless of 720 vs 1080.

    It's been done before, several game engines have the capability, and you see a lot of downscaling done as a form of Anti-aliasing -- and if a game engine can downscale, it can also upscale. You don't see a lot of upscaling because it looks like shit.

    FFXI is one off the top of my head. I think WoW used to be able to do this as well, but I can't remember.

    I can agree with most of this.

    Marketing point is pretty huge though. I don't agree that TV content is that important - at least not in non-US countries. Console gamers in Europe hardly ever use consoles for anything else but gaming.

    Also, as we have features missing in Battlefield 4 on Xbox One. It really doesn't sound good at all. It's not the end of the world for Microsoft, but it will surely make a big dent in sales.

    What features are missing? From what I have read only Xbox One version will have voice recognition and head tracking.

    ouch, this really hurts them being that CoD and battle field are both something big for players. I personally dont see any good reason to buy a xbox base on there first commitment then changed everything because they found they couldn't bully their consumers.

    From a very active thread right here in "General Gaming":

    PS4 has anti-aliasing, missing on Xbox One
    PS4 has HBAO ambient occlusion, missing on Xbox One
    PS4 has motion blur in multiplayer, missing on Xbox One
    PS4 runs at a higher framerate in spite of all of the above advantages

     

    Personal opinion:

    Anti-aliasing is pretty big. I game on a 40" TV and 1080p, without anti aliasing some games really annoy me with the jaggedness.

    PS4 has better hardware and is cheaper. Only the Xbox fanboys would be silly enough to get the Xbox One.

    You can't reason someone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into.

     I was thinking of  features like modes or maps. The videos are out for anybody that wants to see what the games looks like. I posted it right up there so feel free to watch and see what features are missing.

    The hardware is pretty much the same. The memory is the only true difference. Both ATI chip sets. PS4 has small step up on the GPU which is like jumping from a 670 to a 680 that's like a 10 fps jump. In the end the games will look the same. I like all the cool stuff I can do with the xbox one.

    Exactly, they look the same. I know the PS4 is a more powerful system but damn the Xbox One sure makes it look like it just does not matter.

    Yeah the PS4 has more power just not enough to make a difference. In the end if I want the best GFX I'll get them on PC.

    Well, not so much a 'new era' on PC, but it's still going to be a kick-ass game.

    I was about to point out that Titanfall not being available on PS4 is a huge blow to that system, regardless of the graphics for a game or two being slightly sharper.

    Eye candy is all well and good, but contrary to popular belief (on this site anyway) most console gamers care about gameplay over graphics, since they're painfully aware of the limitations of console hardware. And Titanfall looks to have gameplay out the wazoo.

    I still wish I could buy an xbox one without a Kinect for $400, but if I have to pay the extra $100 for the exclusive games and the online experience I like on xbox i'm willing to do it.  If you want to argue graphics, all of the cross platform games are going to look very similar and if you are worried that much about cutting edge graphics, you shouldn't be buying either of these consoles considering you can buy much better in the pc market.  As long as you don't see a performance issue like noticeable frame rate or lag issues from these consoles, I don't see how the slight variables between the two are going to make any difference.  Get the one that has the exclusive games you like.

    Not all who wander are lost...
