'Call of Duty: Ghosts' on Xbox One will only run at 720p resolution, PS4 will run at 1080p

Call of Duty Ghosts

We're just a few weeks away from the launch of the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4, and with those new consoles will come some big launches like Call of Duty: Ghosts — but we're just learning that buyers of Microsoft and Sony's new hardware won't have the same experience with that game. Mark Rubin, executive producer at CoD developer Infinity Ward, just tweeted the disappointing news that only the PS4 version of CoD: Ghosts will run in 1080p. Xbox One buyers will have to be content with upscaled 720p, a decision the developer made to ensure that both games would run at 60 FPS. It's a surprising admission from Infinity Ward, and a bit unusual not to see a high-profile game like this not take advantage of the Xbox One's full capabilities.
