'Call Of Duty: Ghosts' Runs At 1080P On PS4 - And Only 720P On Xbox One

In what might - or might not - be a bad sign for future Xbox One owners, it has been confirmed that a major difference will exist between the launch day PS4 and Xbox versions of Call of Duty: Ghosts.

The highly anticipated next-gen shooter is on many console buyer's wish-lists.

But according to developers Infinity Ward, the PS4 version will run at 'full HD' 1080p - while the Xbox One version will manage only 720p.

Studio boss Mark Rubin confirmed that the Xbox version's graphics would have a significantly lower resolution.

He did say that the Xbox One will upscale those graphics to 1080p (or 1920 x 1080 pixels) - but that the actual native rendering level would be set at 1280 x 720 pixels.

"We're native 1080p on PS4," he said according to CVG. "We optimised each console to hit 60 FPS and the game looks great on both."

And the issue isn't limited to Call of Duty - it looks like the next gen versions of Battlefield 4 will also be upscaled on Xbox One.

While in practice gamers will probably notice little difference - at least on the sort of TVs most people use to play their games - it might be worth factoring into your decision.

Xbox One is released in the UK on 22 November, while the PS4 follows a week later on 29 November.
