Infinity Ward ops to show PS4 footage for COD IGN vids- a series first since MS deal?

So XB1 version is 720p while it runs at 1080p on the PS4?

Is this what is going on?
To sum up:

Looking for another source before I break neogaf.
It really does need to be double checked. It's hearsay... and it's potentially damaging so if Im wrong and it spreads around like truth I would feel like absolute shit.


I'm a total goddamn tease even posting this though. I saw the thread title and couldn't help myself ><
I just can't say anything and finding another source in NDA-city is nigh impossible. I will fall on the sword of this one and say I'm awful for the tease and if a ban is needed to teach me/other potential teasers a lesson I totally get that.
So with famousmortimer not being able to confirm the rumor, we got this Thuway post:

720p 720p 720p 720p 720p 720p 720p 720p 720p
720p

MS dun goofed :/
Last but not least we also got a semi-confirmation from Bish:
...oboy. Fuck it, I'm out. See y'all later. It's been real.

*closes fallout shelter door, locks it firmly*
On development issues:

Note: This guys has not been verified, take it with a grain of salt:

I know no one has any reason to trust me, but I've been sitting on this for a month and have really wanted to post it.

A trusted source told me that IW was "having lots of problems with the xbox one port". I didn't press for any details but I did hear there were also XDK problems like the update that caused a 20% performance loss.

I've also previously heard from the source that "the way IW is run, it's a miracle anything gets done."

Make of that what you will.
And we heard this some time ago:

This is anecdotal from E3, but...

I've heard the architecture with the ESRAM is actually a major hurdle in development because you need to manually fill and flush it.

So unless MS's APIs have improved to the point that this is essentially automatic, the bandwidth and hardware speed are probably irrelevant.

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."
With the new PS4 footage, pixel counters should be able to find out the resolution. All current signs point to 1080p native on PS4.

I don't get why everyone is freaking out. We've known the PS4 is more powerful for some time now.
Maybe because of gems like this:

Penello:
"People DO understand that Microsoft has some of the smartest graphics programmers IN THE WORLD. We CREATED DirectX, the standard API&#8217;s that everyone programs against. So while people laude Sony for their HW skills, do you really think we don&#8217;t know how to build a system optimized for maximizing graphics for programmers? Seriously? There is no way we&#8217;re giving up a 30%+ advantage to Sony. And ANYONE who has seen both systems running could say there are great looking games on both systems. If there was really huge performance difference &#8211; it would be obvious.

I get a ton of hate for saying this &#8211; but it&#8217;s been the same EVERY generation. Sony claims more power, they did it with Cell, they did it with Emotion Engine, and they are doing it again. And, in the end, games on our system looked the same or better.

I&#8217;m not saying they haven&#8217;t built a good system &#8211; I&#8217;m merely saying that anyone who wants to die on their sword over this 30%+ power advantage are going to be fighting an uphill battle over the next 10 years&#8230; "

Maybe this is a call to IW to DELAY both next-gen version? Sure the PS4 version maybe 1080p but it looks awful. And if the Xbone version is 720p and looks worse/causes lockdowns, ugh, then they should probably work on both some more.

It's actually pretty quiet right now. 8741 people browsing. It's usually much higher this late in the day.
It's because the news is only percolating. No confirmation. No standalone thread. To get this info you need to be in the threads to see it.

HAHAHAHHAA. Asking to delay the literal biggest video game event of the year? Never going to happen.

Okay, from the looks of it famousmortimer started this...except he did not saying anything concert and left us hanging...hack he did not even mention 720p.

But he did say that he is willing to take ban if he is wrong. Actually, of late famousmortimer has the best track record of all gaf insiders. So there is that...

If this rumor is true (and it seems like it is), it makes perfect sense of this genesis of this thread. They're showing off the PS4 version because it's clearly the better looking version of the game, as hard as that is to believe. lol

Either way, it makes sense of Infinity Ward's behavior.

Seems to be for 2 reasons.

The activision/MS relationship.

And the fact COD looks like horse shit and really shouldn't be having issues running at 60/1080 on any next gen system.

This is amazing if true. It's one of those things that's going to be an ugly stain on the XB1 launch if true. At least on forums like this.



no
Yes they do. You think teenage males don't care about graphics? They won't know wtf the difference is but they care more than you think

Insider Thuway came in and basically said that Xbox One version would be running in 720p, then other insiders said they're waiting on secondary sources. Then Bish came in and said hes closing the door to his bomb shelter and leaving us all outside.
Well,

Zillions of Xbox Disciples are getting an XB1 and CoD:G for the XB1, just because the Xbox360 was the preferred console for CoD games and they figure the same would be true for the XB1!

TEE HEEE --- AS IT TURNS OUT....

It's APPEARS that the PS4 version of CoD:G is the PREFERRED CONSOLE BY INFINITY WARD, NOT THE XB1.

So, zillions of XB1 fans are in danger of being REALLY screwed by Microsoft's poor choice of console hardware. (well not zillions, more like 300,000 XB1 version of CoD:G pre-orders to be more precise)

But, this is just a guesstimation. Who the hell knows. Maybe Sony paid IW a ton of cash for the preview rights. /shrug.


thank you my fellow juniors. we should stick together more often ^_^

Sounds bad man. I think the next gen console versions are toast
All the evidence states the Xbox One version has been behind since day 1.

-E3 word of 3 week port job for 90fps on PS4 and 4 month port job for 15fps on Xbox One.

-Pretty much all 3rd party game footage have been the PS4 version.

-Xbox One has multiple 720p games already.

-Infinity Ward states the footage this week is the PS4 version running at 1080p.

-Mort teases something big and confirms it has nothing to do with version parity or delays leading to a graphics difference being a high probability.

-Other know insiders start saying 720p for Xbox One on top of other issues.

-Bish bails the fuck out and takes shelter.

Yea apparently, and it's 720p because at 1080p it apparently causes UI instability and crashes in the Xbox One OS.
Where did you read/hear that? Source?

Also was this started all by that tweet with the "we are showing 1080p PS4 footage"? Like did that individual not see what speculation could come from that?

I doubt it. They didn't care for years that the games were sub HD. They'll suddenly care that one is native 720p if the rumor about the Xbox One version being 720p is true? I have a hard time seeing that.
If true, it's bigger than cod-it's further confirmation of the power gap between the two systems.

Thanks for this summary. Holy shit indeed.

Could the WiiU run COD:Ghosts at 720p 60fps? I'd say no problem.

Could the WiiU run COD:Ghosts at 900p/60fps? Iffy, but I wouldn't be surprised.

Even though the Xbox 1 is weaker than the PS4, it's vastly more powerful than the WiiU. That's what I'm having trouble understanding...

if this is true, wow. i don't know much about tech and i was led to believe there wouldn't be many differences between multiplatform games at launch. the next few months are going to be insane on here.

If the rumours are true, I think we can be kind and courteous to the people who have been holding out hope that through magic and unicorns that the Xbox One versions of multiplatform games will be basically indistinguishable from the PS4 versions.

It's not going to be easy for them, but we can help them through it.

They did not care because it was the same or worse on PS3. Now they have the choice to pay $100 less and get a version which has maybe 2.25 times the amount of pixels. Of course they will care. As soon as this is officially confirmed (if), this will spread like wildfire and I'm pretty sure the majority of the CoD community will switch to PS4.
