Various insiders on GAF have stated the topic and have been backed up by mods that the PS4 version of Ghosts will be 1080p and the XB1 720p. I'm not going to quote everything on here just head over to GAF.

This is further backed up by Infinity Ward showing only the PS4 version in their previews - even with the exclusive Microsoft marketing/DLC.

Thread

Summary Post

This news may not differ the general publics decision on getting either console but with this difference so early in the generation of one of the biggest games it could be quite worrying for Microsoft.

Again, this is not confirmed.

All the evidence states the Xbox One version has been behind since day 1.

-E3 word of 3 week port job for 90fps on PS4 and 4 month port job for 15fps on Xbox One.

-Pretty much all 3rd party game footage have been the PS4 version.

-Xbox One has multiple 720p games already.

-Infinity Ward states the footage this week is the PS4 version running at 1080p.

-Mort teases something big and confirms it has nothing to do with version parity or delays leading to a graphics difference being a high probability.

-Other know insiders start saying 720p for Xbox One on top of other issues.

-Bish bails the **** out and takes shelter.

There could be a number of reasons for this though. From experience with hardware before launch, it could things like
[LIST][*]Perhaps MS don't have final hardware in the hands of dev's just yet[*]Current the system software is unoptimised[*]Current the tools are producing less that optimal code [*]Mmaybe some features of the hardware haven't been exposed[/LIST]
But like you say, it could be that the consumer won't care. They'll look at the exclusives on each machine and it won;t be asuch a big deal if one isn't looking so great with cross-platform games.

Ps4 is a more powerful console on paper, so this was expected.

However, i doubt casual gamers will be able to tell the difference between 720 and 1080 without a side by side comparison.

Edit: Neogaf never fails to entertain. Just had a quick look at that thread and anyone reading that would think that the Xbox one dead and buried now.

Double edit:

From neogaf:
Once people find out that the PS4 version is Native 1080p while the Xbox One version of this game is Native 720p, they'll definitely do it & cancel all Xbone pre-orders in favor of PS4.
Hilarious

Infinity Ward already said the Xbox One version of the game will run at 1080p in official statements. So they must of built the game around that from a good while back (including before the upclocks). So either something has gone horribly wrong recently, but no other signs suggest that, in fact Penello's own words is that the software is gong to look better than ever come launch.

Plus I'm not being funny or nothing but if all the footage (including the first showing at Xbox One's reveal ??) has been PS4 then that doesn't even make any sense since it doesn't look very good, the exclusives that have been seen physically running on the X1 hardware run rings around it.

Call me sceptical but this is exactly the sort of stuff that I'm not surprised to see come out now on the eve of the consoles release, particularly given recent events. Propaganda if you will, COD is a huge game (I'm not interested in it personally) but news this big could sway some folk.

Has any 3rd party dev in the history of gaming released a game with such disparity between them?

Why do people put so much stock in these Neogaf rumours, from my experience they're wrong most of the time anyway (not to mention the hilarious bias that He4rt pointed out). I really can't see this being true, I mean COD is hardly the most graphically taxing game from what I've seen in the trailers.

There could be some weight to this rumour, GaF isn't one of the best places for information, but one of the guys who is reporting this is the same guy that predicted the Driveclub delay.

The neogaf thread keeps on going, and is a very funny read.

It reads like-

Ps4 fans- 'wow,BIG news, Xbox fanboys must be hurting, this is game changer'

Xbox one fans- 'why is this news? We don't care'

I'm sure dedicated servers over p2p (or 'listen' in fancy speak) servers will be a bigger pull than 1080p over 720p.

PS4 and PC will have dedicated servers. They just haven't been able to confirm platforms.

720p will still look great even if this isn't true.

Shame the PC version is suppose to be a 50Gb install otherwise thats the one I'd go for!

Just checked out the site, they like their PS4 over there!

May be a stupid question, i watch films in 1080p and 720p and can never tell the difference. Will the difference between the 2 be that noticeable on console?

1080p is sharper than 720p.

That's pretty much it.

Probably another one of those childish spoiler stories put out by uber fanboys, nothing more. There's no way the small differences between the PS4 and the One could call for such drastic downgrades in frame-rate etc. It's just bollocks.

To be honest, I'm not particularly bothered if any game is in 1080p over 720p. I would much rather the processing went into AA, textures, view distance and general improvements in image quality. At the end of the day I only have a 1368x768 TV anyway (at least at the moment). But regardless of my screen size, I really don't notice major differences in image quality when I see games at @1080 vs @900 or @720

But I realise this is just a personal thing

Yeah and don't you have to be sat an optimal distance as well to really tell the difference?

Anyway not a deal breaker for me. Definitely don't think its doom and gloom as its being portrayed over there.

At some point I'll be getting a PS4 as well, so will get to see it for myself.

2 words, frame rate.

A good solid frame rate far more important than res, imo.

Give me smooth over sharp anyday, you don't notice the fine detail in the heat of a game, but you sure notice sloppy frame rates, up n down all over the place.

Agreed, any day of the week. I still think the story is b*llocks though.

Probably.

As Flawed says smooth FPS is better than res. Nothing worse than a game tearing and dropping frames while playing.

Hi res does look nice though.

If anything, blurring effects are also just as important as FPS in a FPS (err wut?) - This is an area where 1080p can benefit over 720p.

The only thing Sony need to do is get the word of mouth out that their games are substantially better looking than the Xbones - and it just needs press etc to get that out there, then the consumers will gravitate to the cheaper console - the one that gives value (like they always have done over here) - and that's not the MS console..

(I do find it ironic that there are plenty here that say "oh, you don't notice the difference between 720p and 1080p" - and then say that people will notice the difference between normal and dedicated servers )

Have sort of same feeling dan. If it was being reported the opposite way there would be plenty ms fanboys shouting about it....even on here.

This is the sort of thing that makes good gaming headlines and gives fanboys something to squabble over but makes almost zero real world difference in terms of success or failure.

If you have a 768 screen then you can't see 1080 games so no wonder you can't see a difference.

I would contend that - if the general consensus is that the PS4 games look better, and run better (which is the implication by the COD issue) on a console that is significantly cheaper, and that consensus is reported over a wide range of media to all consumers, people will buy that console over the other.

That will directly make a real world difference in terms of success or failure - given that criteria is based upon how much a console sells - see the Wii U.
