The COD: Advanced Warfare PS4 version will be the “definitive” one for consoles. While the footage used in the recently released trailer was taken from the Xbox One, insiders have claimed that the PlayStation 4 version will be the one the developers prefer.
Could this mean that Activision and Sledgehammer Games have already decided the winner of the Xbox One vs PS4 debate this early in the console cycle? The trailer definitely shows that they have put a lot more effort into the visuals than they did with COD: Ghosts, so it’s obvious that they’re learning to use the technology better.
This is simple proof that as developers familiarize themselves with the new consoles, the games will get better and look more advanced. It happens with every generation.
Apparently COD: Advanced Warfare on PS4 will prove that Microsoft’s machine is inferior to the one from Sony. It may be true that the 1080p capabilities are easier to use on the PlayStation 4, and Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is expected to reflect that.
In a recent statement from industry insider Ahsan Rasheed, the developers from Infinity Ward will use the PlayStation 4 more at home, having shown a preference toward it:
“Also I want to say one thing to all the Xbox One fans that keep telling me COD is X1 lead platform. It’s not. It’s a marketing deal. Here’s the part you should pay attention to. Developers inside Infinity Ward prefer the PS4. Majority will use it to play at home. Put that inside your head. The developers who made the game. Majority will play the game on PS4 at home with friends.”
In case you’re thinking that Infinity Ward is not Sledgehammer, and therefore the statement is irrelevant for the next game, Rasheed added, “So cute. If you think the PS4 version won’t be the definitive console version technically, I have some bad news.”
According to the developers at Activision, Sledgehammer’s COD: Advanced Warfare PS4 version will be the one they’re focusing on. Score another point for Sony in the PS4 vs Xbox One console war.
