Confirmed- COD Ghosts is 720p

I am still entirely on the fence. The recent reveals of multi-platform games being at a higher res has staggered me a little, and I'm edging close to cancelling my Day One edition order, but...

I've weighed up the comparisons somewhat with Kinect and the PS Eye.

Here in the UK, including the PS Eye with the PS4, it'll work out 30 cheaper than the Xbox One, obviously with Kinect.

Yes, the both use voice commands. But that is really where the only 100% similarity ends. Yes, they both do the motion control/gaming thing, but with the Kinect, I don't have to hold anything, where as with the PS4, it's either the DS4 or the Move wand/stick things, whatever they're called.

That right there is a bonus for me. The motion gaming is something I like, not only for myself every now and then, but for the children especially. Like I've said a few times, they loved Kinectimals. As they get older, I'm sure more of the usual would suit them.

I do not like the idea of them being 'limited' to holding something, which, IF somehow becomes broken due to an accident, has to be replaced. With Kinect, that worry doesn't exist.

Then there's the things Kinect does that the Eye, from what I know, doesn't do. Recognising up to 6 different people. Facial expressions. Working in the dark. Reading my heart rate. It can gather body gestures - such as how I twist my arm, or how I rotate my head. You have to be holding something for the PS Eye to do that (if it can, forgive me, I haven't looked into it much). The other things (heart rate etc.) the Eye cannot do.

What you want from either camera is up to the person, so to prove one is 'nothing' compared to the other is dependant on what you want from the camera (if it's just voice commands, then they're equal). But one camera is clearly capable of doing more than the other, thus the tech is more 'advanced'. Which would justify the assumption why the Kinect costs more over the Eye, which would bump the price of the One somewhat, if you compare both console prices with camera's included.

Just trying to be impartial here. :)


The problem lies in the subjectiveness of this.

To me, it's absolutely useless.
I'm not into motion games, I don't see the benefits of having voice control, etc.

I understand the kinect is more technologically advanced, (according to the commercials, since I've yet to see half of what MS promised in action) but it comes at the cost of 7 years of inferior hardware, 7 years of falling behind in multiplatform games.

I just don't see how this is justifiable from a gamers point of view.

If MS would sell the kinect separately, they know it would have less then stellar buy rates, so they force people to buy it.
But by doing that, they also make it so that they have to get lower cost hardware, because else they'd need to go to a much higher price.

Microsoft chose to go for a forced kinect over better hardware for video games.
This is a clear signal that their focus is somewhere else.

I understand the kinect is an advanced piece of technology (according to the commercials) and I know it's more advanced then the Eye and the move, but I don't see either as being worth sacrificing 7 years of having parity in multiplatform games for.

I personally couldn't care less about this as I hate CoD and neither of these two consoles appeal to me at all (I have a PC that's already superior to both).

But the fact this topic went 22 pages of nothing but kids screaming over which system will have a slightly better looking version of a shovelware title that will be obsolete in a year is just sad.

do any of you people even enjoy playing games anymore or is it all about arguing over stupid **** like console specs?

The PS4 is more powerful but I am still not getting that system. these 720p news has me unfazed because the games I want are on Xbox One and I will always prefer the Xbox controller and Live.

Oh no! it's only lower HD rather than upper HD!

However will Xbox One users cope?!?!

Now if it went original Wii settings then maybe just maybe it'd be worth getting upset about.. but really? This is what people are in an uproar about?

Graphics mean nothing in the grand scheme of things especially when it'll still be decent graphics regardless.. either like what you buy or don't but something like this shouldn't cause a panic.

Yup. I completely agree. Maybe if Sony was to release an alternate version of the dual shock with an xbox style layout and it does become more apparent beyond the Launch games that the XBO is the inferior system, then I'd consider jumping over to the playstation.
