Call of Duty: Ghosts looks "f'n amazing" on Xbox One, says Microsoft

Senior director Albert Penello says "Wait for real footage, then judge for yourself."

Microsoft director of product planning Albert Penello has witnessed Call of Duty: Ghosts running on Xbox One and his verdict is that it looks "f'n amazing."

"I've seen COD: Ghosts running on Xbox One. It looks f'n amazing. Wait for real footage, then judge for yourself," Penello wrote on Twitter.

Call of Duty: Ghosts launches first on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U, and PC on November 5. The Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions will be released as launch titles later in the month.

According to developer Infinity Ward, the majority of people believe that the game's canine companion Riley will die during the campaign.

The sad fact is COD on X1 has been set to 720p not like the PS4 @1080p seems the X1 can't run 60fps @ 1080p now to me that's a worry as I have both consoles on pre order

I'm not sure what is more pathetic.  The fact that so many MS haters spend all their time looking for MS related articles to bash or that you're not out spending time on things that actually make you happy.  You know, things you don't criticize. Seems its true...misery loves company and if you can't find it...you create it.  

The irony is knowing that a good majority of you Anti-MS cheerleading bullies will eventually be on line at some Best Buy waiting to buy your own Xbox One while trying to maintain a straight face.  (You guys are easy to spot, I remember it from the 2006 launch).

Apply gently but firmly some  "F'n amazing" on top of 720p and you'll get 1080p - simple as that.  M$, the're geniuses after all. Or are they ..

Seriously, after all they've said so far since the X1 reveal event, I don't care if they think something  looks f'n whatever.  All I want to know is  whether CoD runs 720p or 1080p on X1.

A lot of the posters in this discussion sound like a bunch of wusses that tried COD and kept having their head handed to them by 11 year old campers! *LOL*

This is not really news Eddie. It's only an article because it has Call of Duty, xbox One and Microsoft in the title!

Yeah because saying a statement like that isn't going to cause Microsoft more troubles..

I think you've destroyed your reputation enough to be able to say "FUCKING" instead of "f'n", Microsoft.

@RockZillaX You obviously are not aware that upscaled 720p to 1080p cannot be distinguished by the human eye from 3.5 feet away or more on a 32" TV and bigger, up to 50" at 9 feet. Correlate size of TV and distance, directly.

@AlexKidd5000 I agree 100% but the issue is at least for me is what the hell are M$ playing at releasing COD or any game @ 720p? becasue the system wont run well at 1080p @ 60fps thats shit imo

@KrackShotz can you just read the article without your biased bull. He was talking about the XBOX 1 , he was not badmouthing your precious PS4 you moron.

@MooncalfReviews 

so microsoft should say bad things about themselves?  or should they not say anything at all and hope that you'll stop hatin long enough to buy it?  thats what they called marketing

1. Pathetic is when a grown up man doesn't realize he's not in a position when saying things like "f'n ....." will make him or the company he represents more credible.

2. Criticizing MS doesn't always make someone a MS hater.  Thanks to these "MS haters" we wont be forced to plug  the Kinect to X1 anymore.   Or for now...

3. You just can't compare 2006 launch to 2013.   Back in 2006 I did't hear from M$ anything controversial, like console always online, Kinect always on required and many things we've all heard since X1 reveal.

@tipsyfreelancer yea 720 as apposed to the ps4 running native 1080, where is all this power of xbox one?

@Helios_Sun 

Why?  Because MS is proud of whats coming out on their up and coming system?  You people are so quick to bash and hate.  Nothing more than bully tactics and ignorance.

@Whiskey3romeo Fanboy much? maybe you missed the PS4 footage earlier in the week. It looked like shit. It looked like the same old game we got last year.

@haze0986 @tipsyfreelancer  @haze0986 @tipsyfreelancerYou don't know the full story. I am quite certain that the Xbox One version will be using its eDRAM for some proper multisampling anti aliasing. This means 720p with 4x MSAA which is really not too bad. Modern Warfare 3 was running at 600p on the xbox 360 and using 2x MSAA. The higher resolution and better anti aliasing coupled with using tessellation in Ghosts will make the frame look very smooth.

The PS4 might be using 1080p but there is no way they'll be using MSAA. Most probably some sort of filter like FXAA that is cheap for the performance but not nearly as good in terms of image quality as MSAA.

I also take it you're a fanboy by your account name which automatically makes you an idiot.

@Gravity_Slave @Helios_Sun are you really that blind? why wouldnt ms say it looks great? its not because theyre proud. they have to damage control the weakness of the system, that couldnt be more clear...they were too worried about tv, nfl ,tv halo series to think about the console playing games

@2Black2Strong @Whiskey3romeo iT is the same old game you got last year. thats on activision

@haze0986 lol, chill bro. I really must have rustled your jimmies with that last line. 

I didn't say the xbox one version was going to look better. It is definitely going to look worse but comparing resolution straight up isn't going to tell you how much the difference is. People make it sound like there is a huge gap between them but in reality it's not that big. 

Multisampling Anti Aliasing really buffs the resolution it's applied on. It looks even better in motion because it lowers shimmering significantly. It's a huge performance drain on PCs because they are all purpose machines. The Xbox One has this additional tiny but really fast memory (SRAM not eDRAM, my bad) similar to the one the Xbox 360 had. It can essentially give them some stuff for free such as anti aliasing but it can also be used for other things. Shift 2 used 4xMSAA on the Xbox 360 and the inferior MLAA on the PS3. Bayonetta used the 360's eDRAM for its abundant use of transparency effects while the PS3 had no such luxury. 

Don't argue facts before knowing this stuff. It's easy saying bullshit like ''1080 is a higher number than 720 hehehe, it must be at least twice as good'' and having no idea what makes each resolution possible or appealing. There have been developers that LOWERED the resolution just to get some multisample anti aliasing in their games.

@shadow580 ??? were you talking about my username? because it means weed not haze the game , and a fanboy doesnt own all systems does he? i owned 360... 3 to be exact and they were all shit. so call me a fanboy for knowing where the quality is, i embrace it.....and two the whole stroy is....ps4 runs it at 1080 while xbox struggles to play it above what 900, ms says it looks great....but they have to they know the ps4 destroys it. thats facts not speculation.

@waffleiron88 @Seymour47 @Helios_Sun What nobody realizes yet is that somewhere down the line, EA will find a way to merge with Ubisoft and we'll discover that these modern Call of Duties are actually modern AC in disguise! What a twist!

@waffleiron88 @Seymour47 @Helios_Sun Naaa. It will be flintlock pistols or the blunderbus. We do have AC4 coming out soon, after all. And we all know how genre altering and socially influential those games are.
