Call of Duty Ghosts is shaping up to be the most played Xbox One game :)

Came across a recent Extinction mode co-op trailer. Military vs. Aliens, COD style!! That is innovative in itself for the franchise, and more innovative and chaotic than zombies.

Someone's study of the trailer

combine that with other new COD series features like Character Creation
(which I think you can create and save up to 10 created characters)

an all new create-a-soldier & perk system:
Customize loadouts & appearance of your soldier
Over 20,000 possible combinations
Including heads, body types, equipment, gender
Primary, secondary, lethal, tactical, perks
Each squad member has 6 loadouts
All attachments and killstreaks are free to choose
Earn Squad Points and spend them how you want


Clan Wars

New Modes


like Search & Rescue, Cranked and Blitz

new SQUADS modes (offline and online play) with a.i. bots smarter than Timesplitters/Perfect Dark. Wargame has access to all the multiplayer modes.

new MAPS

well obviously. plus quality map packs DLC support for fans that want to expand things further.


a MLG tournament already planned with money

the new campaign and much more!! (think Hardcore will be explored in the coming days)


So in my opinion, Call of Duty Ghosts is already proving to be the new ultimate videogame and the most fun game that veterans and newcomers can enjoy!! :) Haters need not apply (well naturally the most popular games are the most hated) Plus it's good to think about the framerate besides graphics.
Overall better performance > better graphics.
Refined engine > new engine.

And BF and COD are apples and oranges, so let's not compare the two. People will either play one or the other or both depending on their tastes. But I will say that BF4 is looking to be all graphics, and no fun. Though of course, opinion. To its credit, It's good BF is around to encourage COD to apply more effort, so it's possible that thanks to BF4, COD Ghosts has become bigger and better than it would have been if it had no competition.

At the end of the day, it's not the graphics or story that determine a game's total quality; it's the content, replay value, customization, gameplay, modes and features that get people to continue playing it every day, for months, even years

Platform debaters only care about the games that push the highest graphics the new hardware can do, but the best videogames ever like COD Ghosts prioritize fun, content and options instead of prioritizing everything on graphics/physics/player count. And fanatics that only care about console exclusives, are missing out on multiplatform games that are SUPERIOR to exclusive videogames.

So the best videogames prioritize the gameplay and modes before the frosting (BF4 is just a blob of frosting). And overall people underrating the graphics just cause "it's last gen". So what? There's gonna be indie and mainstream company games on Xbox One that would beg on their hands and knees for this level of graphics, AAA quality content, modes, features, options, customization, online, budget, multiplayer, arsenal, etc. etc.

It is actually a priviledge that Xbox One is getting COD Ghosts, plus it's benefitting with some new gen exclusives like for example 18 players support as opposed to 12 players cap.

Feel free to debate. :)

Someone that watched a stream commented:

Seems like the stream is over, for now at least.

It was great actually. Map layouts are much more improved from past CoDs. Stonehaven (bombed out European village with a castle) looks like a spiritual successor to old CoD WWII games. Overall the maps seem larger, almost mini-sandbox in nature. Lots of verticality, paths, with plenty of space. You never feel like you're in this tight corridor to artificially induce firefights.

The amount of customization is great too. Also, Field Orders within games are a great touch. A nice challenge layer that gives players incentives without being a necessity. [/quote]

So this version actually has the better graphics:

People are forgetting that Microsoft has a deal with developers that no rival consoles may have more graphics than them. That means that the PS4 and XBox One version of Ghosts has the same amount of graphics. But keep in mind the PS4 is 1080p which means the graphics are stretched, while XBox One's 720p is the sweet spot and graphics are much closer together which gives a better-looking, more succinct experience.

In conclusion, if you run the same game on 1080p hardware and 720p hardware, the 720p will look way better. Now sprinkle that with some crushed blacks (XBox One exclusive feature) and the games look-not next-gen- but neo-gen (that's more than next-gen).

Hope this clears stuff up.

A 720p morbid state if you will.

....

So where are you pulling this from? Because it is ridiculous first off.....they can't have a deal to force a third party developer to force parity on another system, that is illegal first off.

Secondly....1080p...stretched? Do you even know how resolutions work?

Stop with this nonsense.

I'm pretty sure that person was being 100% sarcastic and you took it seriously. None of that made any sense and is factually incorrect in just about every way.

Haven't liked CoD since MW2 (I thought W@W was awesome), but I pre-ordered the Hardened edition of CoD Ghosts to give it a chance on the new Xbox One, and so far it is looking like a lot of fun. I still prefer Battlefield over CoD any day, but I'm interested on these new ideas Infinity Ward is trying out.

Nov 22nd is almost here =)
