Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes is 1080p on PS4. Guess what it is on Xbox One?

Spoiler: it's 720p.

by

MGS V: Ground Zeroes on the PS4.

Konami has officially detailed the resolution and frame rates of all four platforms that Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes will be published on.

PlayStation 4 will render all those sneaky polygons at a native resolution of 1080p. The Xbox One version will run at 720p. Konami pledges that both platforms will play the game at a smooth 60fps.

Older platforms Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 will upscale to 720p (the native resolution was not mentioned) and only run at 30fps.

"Since Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes is a multi-platform game, we have taken the opportunity to test the differences in how each version of the game looks and plays," said Konami.

"The videos [which will be posted at a later date] and images below show an overview of these differences, which we hope will help to decide which version is right for you."

You can view and compare the screenshots on Konami's site.

Kojima said earlier in February that the PlayStation 4 version of Ground Zeroes looked "slightly better" on PS4. Now that we can all see the screenshots, what do you think?

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes will be released on March 18.

Hmm, so  if I went to the store to buy a TV, should I buy the more expensive tv that only supports 720p or the less expensive tv that supports 1080p..... yea that's a no brainer.

to people 720p may not be a big deal, but that combined with that system being more expensive is kind of a big deal

I know you are just stating what is what, but still fuck you for adding fuel to the fire. The headline is obviously pointing it out and I refuse to scroll down to see any of the comments as they will only make my meager intelligence go lower.

Konami has a deal with PS4 to make this look better on that console. You have to be a complete idiot not to see it. Just look at the graphics comparison. Its not just the resolution thats different but the textures and surroundings. Look at the sky on the "Konami graphics comparison". If the fact that they made a graphics comparison of their own game doesn't scream this IDK what does.

im starting to think that maybe martin has a grudge against xbox, like maybe an xbox bullied him in school or something of that nature.

Because the world really needs a short prequel to another longer prequel coming out later in the year to be 1080p. Is it wrong i'm not impressed by the ps4 screencap above? Next gen is still pooping its diapers at this stage, so Gamespot adding gasoline to the 720p/1080p fire is poor journalism in my opinion. Now if 2015 rolls around and either console is still struggling with 1080p/60fps standard after all the devs get used to both systems then well....

I love how people mistake someone reporting on the Xbones shortfalls as playing favorites.  Why don't they use their magical cloud to fix these issues?  Oh because that was just marketing BS to trick you into buying one?  Gotcha.

Microsoft are never gonna live this down if it's like this for most or all the new games, it's like that 3 red lights thing.

you know what i am laughing cause these sony fan boys so hype just like sony falling right in place for nintendo and microsoft plans" to merge if u think the xbox 1 can't do 1080p then your slow" just a slight update when nintendo merge" and sony head so stuck in the clouds of selling the most systems they won't boycott the merge when they should" just like cell phones companys joining forces" Forbes magazine is about money and stocks sometimes they put info out backward to throw off trade sniffers but something big is about to go down with microsoft and nintendo" xbox 1 720p why? so they can move wii u games over to the system no problem

60 frames Per second is the bigger deal. I am glad both systems are supporting that. I still find it stupid that both Consoles can't do 1080P all the time. Computers have been able to do that for a while now.

The resolution wars over this game are sickening at this point. I'm a PC gamer, and I'm saying this. Shut the f*ck up about this issue already. (-_-")

i don't think a deciding factor would be 720p vs 1080p, for me it would be which controller is more comfortable as the difference between that is far greater then the difference between the two resolutions,


game looks good on either console anyways,

Oh, cheese, not the 1080p/720p bull***t again. I am so tired of this. It doesn't matter. If the gameplay's fun, it can be 720p, no problem.

Ps3 720p 30fps for me it is then...I mean, like i'd buy a next gen console just to play this damn game.

like all the other games so far, it will suck at 1080 as well as 720...so who cares?

Even if I am going to play it on PS4, I'm way more happy about the 60fps than the resolution. I'd rather have smooth frame rates that I will notice than a difference in resolution I likely won't notice.

this should be interesting. as long as the game runs good. im sold. most likely get the ps4 version. but i do have an xbox one so maybe titanfall will be the next game for me to buy. since i only have forza 5 for xbox one lol.

You know what, if it wasnt for titan fall id sell my xbox one and just stick with ps4. Im not even sure titan fall is so good where i must keep a $500 system i barely use. I know graphics dont matter and fun does but so far i am having way more fun with my ps4 and im not rich so there is only room in my pocket for one system probably. My ps4 has a permanent home and i would never give it up, i just dont feel that way about my xbox one.

I'm a Xbox fan, own both of the previous gen consoles, own neither of the new gen consoles, but I have to say, microsoft has got to be embarrassed at some level for the discrepancy in power  and price between the Xbone and PS4, and how PS4 is just straight up better at allowing games to run at true hd, considering all the promises, bet they wish they could turn back a few years of time so that this wouldnt have happened

What the headline says: 

"Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes is 1080p on PS4. Guess what it is on Xbox One?" 

What I think that says: 

"I brought gasoline, do you have the lighter? Yeah? Let's start a war!"

@dhsk8sb Every 3rd party developer must have a deal with Sony then, because all of the 3rd party games look better on PS4...Xbox one used weaker hardware and on top of that reserved 10% of the GPU for that goofy ass Kinnect... There's a rumor that they are going to allow devs more of that 10% to work with but it wont make a huge difference. you will still be getting more 720p 30frps on most titles, basically it will never be able to do what the PS4 can Ever, tho it might get a little better. 

Remember when Microsoft got busted using footage of watchdogs from the PS4 version and went out of their way to try to hide the Button Icons on the screen? 

Theres no conspiracy here. PS4 is graphically superior.

@dhsk8sb I've been saying that very thing you would have to be a complete moron to see this. Hideo Kojima prefers PS3 and Sony, they have had long standing deals between the two companies and money talks. If Sony says okay so you're putting the game on Microsoft's console so how much can we give you to make your game a bit less appealing on their console, well money talks, whether in US or Japan doesn't matter.

XBoned720 will never run games in 1080p 60fps not with out major graphics down grades . Developers have already stated that. Titanfail looks last gen and it's 720p on the 10 year old Source engine thief runs on the Unreal Engine 3 sub 1080p. Game engines are going to get more resources intense of not less. Not sure about the PS4 running new game engine's in 1080p 60fps but the new "Panta Rhei" game engine is running 1080p 60fps on PS4 with Deep down.

@ExplicitMike  Not really hate people saying this, Computers haven't, it's the people who put the money into the computers who get this, i mean someone who spent $400 on a pc isn't getting 1080p 60fps, people need to stop thinking PC is this one platform where everything runs better when that is not the cast it's such a vast market.

@profanityVP

There is some truth to what you say.  It just happens to be a fact that the PS4 is superior in every other way, and the only reason to buy an XB1 is the controller or one or two of the exclusives you must have.  However, the majority of people will have no clue why they bought the inferior XB1.  It comes down to marketing, ignorance, and group-think.  This is how politics works too.

@profanityVP looks good on the xbone

looks better on the ps4 thx.

we all know which version to buy

@kelt321 Yeah I get that. But I still think is pathetic a so called next gen console struggles with 1080P. This goes for Sony too. Why are both systems even struggling? Since I PC game also I know the reason but is still stupid that these consoles couldn't gotten better chip sets.

@evil_snuggles  The only gameplay you have seen from titan fall is the beta and Respawn confirmed the game will run 900p at 60fps.

@bezza2011 @ExplicitMike  Uh, what?


It's all relative to the games in development and what quality you wish to play in. 


But what you're saying technically is nonsense. Machines have been able to run @ 1920*1080  / 60 FPS for ages. PCs have reached the stage where resolution  and frame rate is not even an issue anymore, it's what shaders , lighting, detail and distance you get. 


The fact a bog standard PC can run Dark Souls (a game which was otherwise poorly ported, and not even given 1080p by the devs initially) superbly on a PC, and run at a smooth FPS in Blighttown, whereas it runs at 20 FPS on the consoles, proves a point.

Respawn hasn't confirmed 900p . The game currently at 792p 60fps on foot titans 35-45fps. Respawn is trying to get to 900p . Please link if I'm wrong

@chibistevo32 @bezza2011 @ExplicitMike  What I am getting at is the fact PC is a vast and large realm, I'm on a pc now, which barely runs old games as it is, but it's still a PC, I just don't see how there is point when someone says well PC's have been running 1080p 60fps for years, yes the top end of pc's are always going to be better than home consoles for the simple fact a home console is a fixed hardware piece of kit to be supported for 5+years, a pc can be modified and needs upgrading every couple of years, pc vs console isn't a contest, 

But PC is massive it's down to the person who has a pc to how good of a machine it is :S


On consoles as it stands resolution is a big thing and frame rates are why? because they are both competing for the space market space, and these 2 factors are really the only major factor there is to set them apart if your a gamer. 

funny how the years before this, we had no problem shouting the odds about how superior the game was on 360 with it's tiny tiny frame rate advantage and now all of a sudden ps4 is out doing the xbox one in both the frame rate and the res, but now all of a sudden it's not an issue. It's the only issue consoles have.


I have a gaming pc which is quite good, i mean are we going to have arguements about me having a bog standard gaming pc to a high gaming pc??

@junglist101that goes for the xbone then thats why it struggle to reach 1080

the ps4 other features are second,ps4 is first for the gamers unlike the xbox 720 lol
