Finally Broke My Crowdfunding Rule
By oblivion437
Posted on 01/12/15
I've had a long-standing rule to avoid getting involved in any sort of crowdfunded activities.  I didn't donate to Shadowrun or Wasteland, but I did buy and enjoy both of them (I'm plugging both of those games right now, just so you know they're good).  I haven't...

DAILY MANIFESTO

Relax, Call of Duty: Ghosts Looks And Plays Great On Xbox One; I Actually Prefer It

Posted on Tuesday, November 12 @ 09:00:00 Eastern by Alex_Osborn


Before the resolution drama took the internet by storm, I got the chance to spend a considerable amount of time with Call of Duty: Ghosts on Xbox One, and to be perfectly honest, I was shocked to later find out that the game wasn't running in native 1080p. After playing hours upon hours of both the Xbox One and PS4 versions of the game, I honestly could not tell the difference between the two. Granted, they weren't held up next to each other, so a side-by-side comparison might have changed that, but as far as this gamer could tell, the two are virtually indistinguishable.

In fact, I'd go so far as to say I actually preferred Ghosts on Xbox One. Of course, it all comes down to preference, but I like the staggered stick configuration for first-person shooters, so I naturally gravitated toward the Xbox One controller. If you don't mind the stick layout of the DualShock 4, then by all means go with the PS4 version, but don't let the 1080p mumbo jumbo take precedence over your controller preference.

In addition, I also thought the experience ran a bit smoother on Xbox One when compared to the PlayStation 4 version, especially during the campaign. Perhaps going with 720p upscaled to 1080p allowed Infinity Ward to craft a slightly better performing game at the cost of a few pixels... I don't know. After all, I'm no tech expert; I can only speak to what I saw with the limited knowledge that I have. I honestly didn't see a difference as far as resolution between the two, despite the difference, so I'm either blind to that sort of thing, or it really is a non-issue. 

In the end, I highly recommend you don't base your Call of Duty: Ghosts purchasing decision on resolution, but rather the controller you prefer for this type of game and where your friends will be. Don't isolate yourself from all your online buds just so you can have the native 1080p version. That's just silly.
