Based on performance analysis results, the "Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare" campaign operates better on the Xbox One compared to the PlayStation 4.
According to Digital Foundry, as cited by Eurogamer, both the Xbox One and PS4 version of Advanced Warfare is capable of holding at 60 frames per second on multiplayer mode. There were only few cases where performance went lower than that mark. As for the single-player mode, the Xbox version runs smoother in terms of frame rate compared to the PlayStation 4.
Previously, Sledgehammer Games, the developer of "Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare", introduced how the game will run in 1080p on the PlayStation 4, similar to its predecessor, "Call of Duty: Ghosts", in 2013.
Digital Foundry discussed the 1080p resolution offered by the PS4, "The PS4 version's constant 1080p output comes at a price. We catch dips between the 50-60fps lines during battles through Seoul's streets--with drops to the high 40s caught when throwing the 'threat' grenades to scan the area for enemies. Even in perfectly matched scenes, the Xbox One's performance tends to hold at a perfect 60fps by comparison."
The findings of Digital Foundry were different from what Michael Condrey, co-founder of Sledgehammer Games, stated in a report from Gamespot. Condrey said that Advanced Warfare ran smoothly at 60 fps on both the Xbox One and PS4.
Condrey said, "Minimum Xbox One resolution is 1360 x 1080, and dynamically scales from there to full 1080p. That's over 50% increase from last year. Advanced Warfare runs native 1080p on PS4."
Phil Spencer, head of Microsoft Games, also said in August 2014 that frame rate is significantly more important than resolution when it comes to gameplay.
A report by Engadget.com also shared how Advanced Warfare may be having issues on both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One which can make the game outright unplayable.
Players who pre-loaded Advanced Warfare on PS4 should delete the game, which amounts to about 40GB. The issue seems to affect only those who pre-loaded the game before the official launch date on November 5. All available updates should be downloaded and the gaming system should be running the latest system software.
On the Xbox One, the same Engadget report also shared how gamers should not to let the game's update to download when the game disc is first inserted into the Xbox One. The game might be unable to install from the disc, resulting to a loop between installing and queuing.
