COD is almost synonimous with xbox, I would not be surprised if MS paid a lot of $$ to keep one of its flagships relevant to its platform. The same with sports games. But I would not worry for any other games cuz it would cost them to much since the ps4 is selling 2:1 to x1.

Why wouldn't they have done that last year with COD: Ghosts? 

There is no way that the PS4 version of COD: Advanced Warfare will have a lower rez than COD: Ghosts. Either Xbox One version hits 1080p or parity isn't happening. Why on earth would people think parity = PS4 downgrade as opposed to Xbox upgrade? Negativity gets clicks I guess. Especiall anti-ms negativity.

That is basicaly one of the worst articles I have ever read in reguard this subject.

It looks like a 15 years old boy ranting about a think he has just a vague idea.

And to finish with a golden turd

"TL;DR: The early first gen releases for the Xbox One and PS4 showed that the PS4 could handle higher frame-rates or resolutions in multiplatform games. If forced parity starts coming into play, then it may lose those advantages."

Just forget that 90% of multiplat games released since last year share the same resolution and frame rates. There is only 2 games where the resolution delta is 720p/1080p and the COD:Ghosts everybody knows that the game was rushed and the next gen versions are just up ports from last gen games.

And why this guy goes for COD when its Battlefield that, until further notice, PS4/Xone will share the same resolution and fps? Or forget Destiny?

Microsoft is forcing no one. The developers are choosing to make the versions as close as possible. As was the case of the previous generation.

you guys can be such fanboys. kudo's to the people that dont believe this bull. parity when it comes to resolution and framerates doesnt mean parity when it comes to lighting and such Edit: I shouldnt say you guys in a broad term. most ps fanboys on this site are logical, unlike the op



Ltd predictions by the time 9th Gen comes out

Ps4:110million

Xbox one :75 million( was 65) 

Wii u: 20 milliion

Nah, pure speculation with no evidence to back up the claim. Journalism at it's finest.

Where's the actual proof? This thread makes little sense.

Why dint they? well maybe cyz last year it would not matter since all consoles where going to sell out no matter what and now that people know whats up and theres going to be a choice in the matter MS has to take precaution. Maybe last year since it was the launch of a new gen then they had to prove that this game was truly next gen and couldnt afford to gimp the ps4 version because it will loose hype. There are many unknowns you cant be certain of anything so dont inmediatly reject all opinions if you yourself have no prove either.

But I agree with you that there is almost no way that they will downgrade the ps4 below ghost. But there is a chance that last cod was rushed and both versions could have done better, and they could avoid improving the ps4(who knows it might look better than it did last year) this time and just work on the x1 version.



It takes genuine talent to see greatness in yourself despite your absence of genuine talent.

this is all rumor and speculation until this actually happens. last time i checked every multiplate between the two performed and looked better on PS4. this is al FUD.

Doubt it. Devs now a days are on a power trip, pubs like Sony and MS cant tell them what to do unless the pony up some cash. MS would risk losing that dev to PC, Sony, or worse Nintendo. Even if you are the market leader, you don't want to be left out.

I am not surpise if Mircosoft forces this on all games. They could flat out deny games being released on their platform if the PS4 versions performs better so developers will have no choice ,but to cave in. Thoughts?


MS can't force parity, period.  What they can do is request that all of their games run at 1080p/60 FPS, and developers will likely agree.  The thing is the PS4 versions will have a ton more detail packed into those 1080p images with a more consistant framerate.

 

Don't kid yourselves people, the gap ain't goin' nowhere!

They may improve the graphical detail and other features on the consoles but that is not what anyone is really talking about is it? The only thing people are concerned with is resolution and framrate. Those are the things that grab headlines and no COD game on PS4 is ever going to be better than 1080p/60fps so basically the ony thing they can do at this point is be on par with Ghosts. So no, it won't be held back because it can't get any better and we already agree that it's not going to get worse, so the only possibilities are that Xbox upgrades or there is no parity.
