Resolutiongate 3: Rise Of The Refresh Rate has managed to take gamers by complete surprise. What was originally thought to be a terrible cash-in on drama and fanboyism has turned out to be a lot more telling than what was originally let on, thanks to new benchmarks by Digital Foundry.
Infinity Ward has recently patched Call of Duty: Ghosts for the PC. The game – as previously reported by just about every website – was probably the worst on PC, suffering massive frame stuttering, dropped frames during intense segments and some of the worst crashes and bugs the opposite side of a Bethesda title.
Activision is running to the defense of Infinity Ward as members of the gaming media try to run a damage control campaign after it was revealed that Call of Duty: Ghosts isn't running native 1080p on the PlayStation 4, but was instead relegated to 720p.
If you were looking to pick up Call of Duty: Ghosts alongside a new generation console from Microsoft or Sony, you would be in for a tough time. It's no easy task thanks to a muddied response from a divisive gaming media circuit that seems to be trying to figure out if they're apologists or critics.
A damage contr – oops, I mean, a new preview for Call of Duty: Ghosts helps to assuage some of the fears that the game's relegation to 720p on the Xbox One and frequent reports (and videos) of frame stutter aren't much of an issue occurring on the Xbox One, so writes Destructoid.
Holy snaps, it's like Activision and Infinity Ward took the foot-shooting gun from Microsoft and decided to test it out on themselves for no reason whatsoever... no reason at all. A new video from TotalBiscuit showcases Call of Duty: Ghosts on PC running at 1080p on an Nvidia GTX Titan and guess what? The game runs like trash!
I guess that question was answered a heck of a lot sooner than I thought. The very first footage of Call of Duty: Ghosts has gone live for the Xbox One thanks to YouTuber TmarTn. The footage is nothing special but a few key details in the footage reveals something that many gamers were slightly worried about since reports of PS4 frame rate issues went public.
It's appropriate that the new Call of Duty: Ghosts advertisement stars Megan Fox. Like Fox, Call of Duty could do no wrong back in 2007. Since then, though, Call of Duty has become a fashionable thing to hate.
That 1080p came a costs, I guess. Multiple reviews point to a reoccurring problem with the PlayStation 4 rendition of Call of Duty: Ghosts: frame rate issues. Now before those who have been Xboned start jumping up and down, take note that the Xbox One version and all its good and bad technical flaws is still under embargo until November 12th.
So you know how Activision let loose the official system requirements of Call of Duty: Ghosts for PC and it stated that it required 6GB of RAM? Well, the system requirements for Call of Duty: Ghosts on PC are bogus and modders have offered a fix for the problem.
Fanboys have been screaming to the high heavens at the top of their lungs for one thing “Please, Infinity Ward patch Call of Duty: Ghosts to native 1080p for the Xbox One!” Sorry, but that's not how it works and Infinity Ward's Mark Rubin makes it known that it's not really possible.
Games, games and more games. As the holiday shopping window continues to open up nice and wide, more and more titles are making their way to market just in time to make it onto everybody's Christmas list. And there's no question as to which new offering this week will be hogging the vast majority of the limelight on the PlayStation Network. A bunch of games may be coming out, but all of that other content will rest in the shadow of Call of Duty: Ghosts.
Battlefield 4 has already set the bar pretty low with a campaign mode that clocks in at around four hours, according to most reviews. Well, prepare to have your socks blown off with Call of Duty: Ghosts' campaign mode, because it clocks in at around four and a half hours on the regular difficulty setting.
I don't know how Activision does it, but I imagine when The Kotick clicks his heels and snaps his fingers money flows like a torrent from his mouth and media specialists with glowing skin and non-negotiable contracts appear from thin air and make anything possible... such as getting Megan Fox to appear in a promo ad for Call of Duty.
Darn those pirates! Curse those low-down, dirty, scumbag thieves! Those stealing, neckbearded, basement dwellers have no place on the face of this planet! Man, those PC gam – oh wait, it's not the Glorious PC Master Race responsible for the leak? Uh, well then... it looks like those Prestigious Console Kings are showing their true colors as gaming's real peasants.
