Call of Duty: Ghosts PS4 frame-rate complaints

Reviews of Call of Duty : Ghosts video game have reported problems with the graphics on the PlayStation 4.  Reviews of Call of Duty : Ghosts have reported problems with the graphics on  PS4

Testers said that its frame rate dropped at several points during the game causing a stutter-effect, so the PlayStation 4 version does not maintain a consistent frame rate as desired. Frame rate hitches happen throughout the campaign. In multiplayer the frame-rate stutter is significant enough to let targets escape to safety or see you killed during the general mayhem...

The PS4 version of Call of Duty : Ghosts is the only console edition that renders its images in 1080p high definition. The Xbox One will create a less processor-intensive 720p resolution.

"One of the key pillars of Call of Duty : Ghosts has been 60 frames per second... and ensuring that was of utmost importance, and the resolutions that appear are geared around that," said Infinity Ward's Mark Rubin. "The different way the new consoles handled memory had contributed to a decision to support 1080p graphics on Sony's machine but not Microsoft's." 

The PS4 version of the game is already on sale, but the Xbox One console will not be released until 15 November in North America and 29 November in Europe.

Reviews of the Xbox One version of Call of Duty : Ghosts remain under embargo until 12 November.

Call of Duty: Ghosts resolution comparison - Xbox - PS4 - PC

Call of Duty: Ghosts will run at a resolution of 1080p on the PlayStation 4, but only 720p on the Xbox One.

The Xbox One will upscale the graphics in Call of Duty: Ghosts to 1080p, so are the differences negligible?

The PS4 version might look better than Xbox One, but the operative word here is "might" — few people outside of Infinity Ward have seen both versions in action, and resolution is not the only thing that determines how good a game looks on any given system.

Microsoft confirms Xbox One comes with Kinect

Call of Duty Console

The confirmation came via Phil Harrisson, a corporate vice president of Microsoft and member of the company’s Interactive Entertainment Team. In an interview Harrisson was asked whether there would ever be an Xbox One without Kinect. His answer was very clear: “Xbox One is Kinect. They are not separate systems.”

Kinect will always be shipped as standard with the Xbox One.

Kinect will always be shipped as standard with the Xbox One.

Microsoft is viewing Kinect the same way it views the Blu-ray drive, controller, and components inside the box; they are all a core part of the experience required to make Xbox One work. You can argue that a motion controller doesn’t have to be counted the same way, but Microsoft would clearly disagree.

Harrisson isn’t new to games having been in the industry since 1989, and has had long stints working at Sony, Atari, Gaikai, and now Microsoft. He says he has an Xbox One at home and that the ability to talk to the console to get it to turn on and recognize you is “a very magical experience.”

Kinect may be great for voice recognition and identifying who is holding a controller, but Microsoft has yet to convince everyone about its use for games. It doesn’t seem like a must-have peripheral, but that doesn’t seem to matter, Microsoft is insisting you have one.

Infinity Ward’s Mark Rubin has revealed that Call of Duty: Ghosts supports Kinect controls on Xbox One.

Microsoft wants Kinect to become an integral part of the console experience and is pushing for more Kinect functionality in software. Kinect has had minimal involvement in some of the biggest franchises on the Xbox including Call of Duty and Battlefield so far.

Mark Rubin would like to like “explore” Kinect controls for in-game actions whether it be character movement or reloading, and stating that ”there’s a lot of potential for voice in the game”.

“We’re doing some stuff, not really mentioning it yet,” Rubin hinted to us at Gamescom. “It’s mostly menu stuff, so you can work all the menus with Kinect – that’s a big thing that Microsoft’s pushing. We need to see where it goes before we jump into it.

“We’ve never really been the company that thinks it has to be first in the line for tech,” he went on. “It’s the tortoise and the hare thing, and we’d rather be the tortoise, take our time on the tech and make sure it’s right.

“So we haven’t jumped into that yet, but some really interesting things came up, some interesting ideas – especially the voice, there’s a lot of potential for voice in the game, and I’m hoping we can explore that. Whether it makes it into this game, I’m not a 100% sure, but definitely in the future I think there’s some really cool stuff there.”

The Xbox One version also benefits from dedicated server support - Activision and Infinity Ward have yet to confirm whether this will apply to non-Xbox platforms.
