    IGN call of duty comparison mistake

    CALL OF DUTY GHOSTS NEXT GEN COMPARISONOur previous comparison videos contained incorrect footage.

    BY: STEVE BUTTS

    DECEMBER 3, 2013

    IGN mistakenly published a previous side-by-side comparison of Call of Duty: Ghosts that did not contain the full 1080p native resolution footage of the PS4 version. While IGN confirmed the display output setting on the PS4 was 1080p, the native resolution rendered in the game itself was not 1080p for an unknown reason. The footage was captured on non-retail, development hardware running the final build of the game. After viewing, the retail version on retail hardware, it's clear our old footage was a lower resolution. You can see this difference more clearly in this new video.



    Additionally, some of the Xbox One footage from the event was captured in color-blind mode, which assists with a few colors such as red. These errors weren't spotted until after the footage was posted and other IGN staff and readers were able to A/B compare the video with native 1080p and non-color-blind footage.

    IGN strives to be as accurate as possible in all of its reporting but we failed in this case. For that, we apologize. To help rectify this error and provide you with the proper information, we have recaptured footage for this graphics comparison. It contains new footage that accurately represents the visual difference between the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of Call of Duty Ghosts.

    You can also check out full resolution versions of stills from the video in the slideshow below.

    Bad title. Suggests deliberate attempt to deceive. Evidence of that?

    What would u like it to read and I'll gladly change it?

    They are the pros, how do you suppose they didn't know the ps4 was not 1080p and the Xbox colorblind mode was on, enhancing color

    Sounds like an honest mistake and one which they freely admitted to and rectified. I see no harm or foul in this.

    "faked" should probably just be "mistakes".

    Goodness. They admit what happened, and fixed it. There are too many sensationalistic threads these days.

    Fixed. I don't think it was a mistake. I think they got called out. That's just my opinion though.

    Funny how they admitted it after the game was released

    I agree. IGN's track record clearly being biased toward XBOX. We'll never know for sure but do you think you'd see this the other way around. The X1 displayed under their native resolution would never happen on their site... Feel free to insert joke here lol.
