Ban shinobi if old. Apparently IGN will be revealing multiple Call of Duty Ghosts vids on their site all this week. And in a series first, it will be shown on a Playstation console (PS4 1080p) before release.



Normally since the Activision/MS partnership all marketing footage up to and after a COD release has been shown on the Xbox (PS3 preview builds were still shown to the media, but not in direct feed marketing vids).

Very strange. Here's the videos so far which shows AWESOME PS4 COD:G MENU FOOTAGE: http://www.ign.com/articles/2013/10/...ts-squads-mode

(note: the first video in the IGN link is the XB1 marketing video, the rest are PS4 vids).

Wait, but I thought non-Xbox versions of the game can't be advertised pre-launch? Contract cut short?

Definitely the first time since the MS-Acti partnership was announced anyways. I remember them showing the PS3 version of CoD4 as part of an E3 showreel (though, admittedly, that was also for Sony's E3 press conference).

Not a big deal.

First since the deal? Sure, but also the first since the deal that the PS version will be better, so there's no reason to think it was the deal that had them showing the 360 version anyway.

AC has always lead on PS4 as far as adverts go here.

it's like the Xbone don't exist, even devs talk about PS4 when mentioning Nextgen projects.

The first video on the page I believe is X1 footage. In the menu footage you can clearly see an "A" prompt. Must be the other video below it which I haven't watched yet.

That is nothing special though. AC was always big advertised on PS mostly. COD was Xbox stuff.

Maybe IW/Acti has always had discretion to showcase the most polished/best build on whatever platform, and it's just that now it's a playstation rather than a Xbox.

(Although how PC figures in to this I don't know...but maybe they want to showcase it on a console because they know most of the audience is on consoles)

It is a trend to just show PS4 isn't it? BF4, COD, AC4, NFS, even Watch Dogs. Was TitanFall the X1 or PC build, anyone know?

I've no doubt the differences are slim between the multi-players, but it makes you wonder why even the games that are going early DLC on X1 are showing the PS4 build.

Yup, seems to be a trend. Are any multi-platform games showing off the One Version over PS4? Perhaps FIFA? But that game looks like shit anyway....

Man. Remember the rumors that MS was moneyhatting devs to only show XB1 footage of their games? I'm glad that didn't happen.

In fact, I can't think of any multiplat games that have *only* been shown on XB1.

The trailer is X1 footage, all the IGN videos will be PS4 footage, although gameplay won't be shown until tomorrow.

As you should. From what I remember there's never been official CoD PS footage before its release since MS signed that contract. They always use the 360, although I think one time Nvidia demoed it on the PC at one of their events. But never on a PS console.

Right, that's the standard marketing footage using XB1. Or at least some build with XB1 buttons.

Maybe. But it's weird they would shift when they debuted on XB1, showcased it on Jimmy Fallon on an XB1, and up till now had all trailers and marketing with XB1 buttons.

Pretty sure IW has said 1080/60 on both.

PS4 version probably ends up running/looking better tho, so it's the version they would want to use for demoing the game.

Didn't know they showed it on Fallon on XB1. That does make it stranger. Maybe there's something in their contract about TV promo/advertising but not other kinds?

I will laugh so hard if the CoD adverts eventually get "footage from PS4" at the bottom followed by the standard available on xbox advert finish.

have we even seen real XB1 footage yet? and I don't mean PC with xb1 button prompts like the multiplayer reveal?

For reference, the story going around E3 went something like this:

"ATVI was doing the CoD: Ghosts port to nextgen. It took three weeks for PS4 and came out at 90 FPS unoptimized, and four months on Xbone and came out at 15 FPS."

No way, can't be true

You're not making any sense whatsoever and you're drawing a big assumption based on nothing. If we go by the MS-Activision partnership and sales history (and online presence), then clearly the Xbox would be the lead platform.
