What? Say it ain’t so. My copy of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is in the mail for my Playstation 4 and I’m excited. I’m getting bored of Destiny (my review here) so it’s time to play a new game.
Unfortunately, according to Digital Foundry, CoD for the Playstation 4 has minor frame rate issues in the single player campaign, even though it’s always 1080P. The Xbox One version on the other hand runs a more consistent 60 frames per second but its resolution is variable.
Don’t tell me that my eyes can’t discern past 24 frames per second. It surely can.
As a one time “serious” fighting game player, I can vouch that a rock solid frame rate is the most important thing to a great game experience.
I’d rather a game be 720P and run 60 frames per second versus 1080P and 30 frames per second.
I’d also rather a game be locked in at 30 frames per second always than have it fluctuate from 30 to 60 frames per second. That’s because when the frame rate is consistent, your eyes adjust and you don’t think about it anymore. But if frame rates go up and down, your eyes will be able to tell and the experience won’t feel buttery smooth.
Oh well, at least the graphics in CoD multiplayer is better on the Playstation 4. Microsoft’s biggest mistake with the Xbox One will continue to bite them.
