Character customization, maps, dynamic events, weapons, gametypes, and constant 60fps multiplayer framerates are ubiquitous across current- and next-gen platforms. The biggest variations between platforms falls upon visuals and player counts.

On the current-gen versions Ghosts looks nearly identical, though I did encounter occasional framerate issues during the single-player campaign on PS3 and PS4, whereas my time with the Xbox One version was stable throughout.

While the Xbox One version of Call of Duty: Ghosts has been confirmed by Activision to run at a lower resolution than its PS4 counterpart (720p upscaled to 1080p native, respectively), that numerical difference is less meaningful than you might imagine.

The two versions look nearly identical. Viewing the Xbox One release next to the PS4 ,

I had difficulty telling them apart. It's possible that the PS4 version looked somewhat sharper, but that may have just been my imagination after confirming the hard resolution difference.

The next-gen releases of Call of Duty: Ghosts are so close together that gun to my head, I'd have no confidence in being able to discern which version was which — at least, while the two are standing still.

The Xbox One release's framerate was far more noticeable. As mentioned in the initial review, Call of Duty: Ghosts suffers from consistent framerate drops on the PS4, especially during multiplayer when action got especially hectic. The Xbox One version suffered no such drops, maintaining a steady 60 frames per second throughout.

For a multiplayer shooter, framerate consistency is paramount. Given its relative visual parity with the PS4 release,

Call of Duty: Ghosts is a more playable, slightly superior (albeit disappointing) game on Xbox One.

I was more looking for a word from Polygon of them only reviewing the Call of Duty: Ghosts multiplayer.

In regards to the money from Microsoft, it looks like Polygon was paid to make a documentary.

don't feel bad, they gave Link Between World's a bad review and I still plan on getting it

it got like a 74 on Metacritic, which is okay territory, and cows have more unconditional love for anything made by Sony or a Sony exclusive so fanboys should be fine, basically the reviews to Killzone SF come down to a meh campaign but good multiplayer; so there you have it, if you plan on playing the MP you'll get a lot out of it, just like a BF game

derailing I see but more salt to that wound:

the multiplayer runs natively at 1080p resolution -DF

Stay butthurt.

So, what's the going rate for a documentary? You seem well-informed.

Also, you can't remember the source? That renders the point moot.
