    LMAO, not even out yet and it can't run the game at 1080p already. That's a bit of a fail for something people scream about as "next gen"...

    That's the developers fault though, i bet they barely put time into each of the ports, I'm 100% sure that it could run COD ghosts in 1080p with the graphics they have achieved. For a next-gen game it doesn't even look that good on either console. Take a look at Killzone Shadow fall, now that's a real next gen game.

    I will be getting a Ps4 because in my opinion it's simply better value for money. Someone mentioned that the Wii sold the most units, it was also significantly cheaper. The xboxone is £100 more expensive, completely different argument. I hope both do well though, there needs to be competition, and i will get a xbox one eventually for exclusives like Halo 5 etc.

    The native resolution applies to many areas, it is just most commonly used with panel resolutions.

    Native resolution usually means physical pixels on a display. A CRT doesn't have physical pixels, for example, so it doesn't have a "native" resolution but they do have a "recommended" resolution where the picture quality will be the best the display can handle.


    If they're using the term "native" correctly, that should mean there is no upscaling to achieve 1920x1080 and a minimum of 24 frames per second.

    Until I can use a KB-M with either for FPS and other games there is no point in buying a console except for my kids to play with.

    This is pretty much the same thing with Final Fantasy XIII on the PS3 and the 360 repeating itself. Sucks to be you, Microsoft.

    Pretty plain and ordinary--very cheap to manufacturer (aside from the production of the chips themselves, anyway).

    Was this something Microsoft stated? This is news to me then that they announced they were going for control over graphics. In fact all I've heard them say is how awesome they feel their visuals are and of course how awesome the Kinect is as well.

    Slightly related, a hands-on with the Xbox One.

    I sort of like what I'm seeing there actually. It will never be for me, but if I had a family and a TV and played games on a console and used technology that way i'd be interested.

    why would anyone choose to put themselves through the torture of playing a FPS with a gamepad?

    Lets put the upscaled stuff behind us for a minute.

    Who is to say that the Xbone won't have better textures or environmental effects to compensate for the lower resolution.

    That would be extremely bizarre. Usually it's more than one thing that gets turned down. I think some of the comparison vids showed less volumetric clouds and fewer filters as well.

    It's all meaningless right now either way. People are just latching onto this to be dramatic. The practical power difference between the two consoles is around 15% in favor of the PS4, which is also easier to code for, which is why we'll see this exaggerated disparity early on. In the long run people won't notice.

    That's precisely the point. The hardware difference between both consoles are too similar to say the Xbox running Ghost because of a hardware deficit.

    Also it can be argued that Ghost 1080p on PS4 might generate worse frame rate than Xbox One at 720p upscale whilst looking visually virtually the same. As a gamer I would rather the compromise and have a balance of consistent frame rate whilst maintaining the image quality as best as possible. The frame rate issue on the last generation of consoles was often unbearable.


    Edit:

    Fudzilla report that the Xbox Ones initial resolution will be between 720p and 900p.

    That has already been covered, the developers said they optimized the game to run at 60FPS. And since most people have 60Hz TVs, anything beyond 60FPS that the Xbone might manage won't matter anyway.

    The power difference is a lot bigger than some seem to think, it definitely isn't just 15%. The memory bandwidth is half on the Xbox, which is a major factor with an APU. Desktop APU's show an almost linear relation between increased memory bandwidth and increased game performance. And the PS4 has 50% more shaders. So I don't know how anyone can say the performance difference is going to be just 15%.

    wait is 1440x900 even a standard HDTV size?! lol. regardless of personal preference I cant say that its all that surprising unless you are infact a blind CoD fanboi the hardware specifications make it clear that the PS4 is a more powerful machine. Their will always be differences in programming and optimizations between platforms and therefore always differences between the same game in a multi platform environment. I am honestly surprised that people still get bent out of shape about it. I must be PC to the bone to completely ignore everything about them besides hardware specifications I could care less what controller is used by a 13yr/o to bash my brothers grandmother while being "360 noscope 420'd" from across the map no less.

    Xbone has 32 MiB ESRAM which is about the same performance of the GDDR5 in PS4. I think that's going to compensate for DDR3's slower speed quite substantially.

    What people don't talk about is the fact PS4 uses GDDR5 for its main memory. Yes, it is higher bandwidth, but it also more susceptible to error and has higher latency. The GDDR5 may be a boon for PS4's GPU component but it will cripple the CPU component. Microsoft took a similar approach with Xbox 360 and it worked well; the same should be expected of Xbone.


    I think it's the shader difference that is translating to higher resolutions. Xbone has nothing to compensate for that difference except (maybe) higher clockspeeds but that isn't clear yet.

    No, they upscale to 1080p or downscale to 720p.
