Resolutiongate - that's the term given to the current controversy regarding Call of Duty: Ghosts being rendered at 720p on the Xbox One and 1080p on the PS4. Despite the fact that both versions look nearly identical, this is apparently a big deal to those who have nothing better to do with their time than just yell at strangers on the Internet all day. Well, you better strap yourselves in because EA may have just started another comparisons race.
EA decided to share gameplay of Need for Speed: Rivals running on both the Xbox One and PS4 today. While we should be excited to see the latest Need for Speed title running on the Xbox One for the first time, it will inevitably turn into a petty argument over which version looks better. So let's just get it over with, shall we?
Here's Need for Speed: Rivals looks like on the Xbox One:
Wow, that's a fine looking racing game. I'm sure those picking up on the game on November 22 for their brand new Xbox One will be very happy with the title.
Now, let's take a look at some new footage released today of the PS4 version:
Would you look at that - they're nearly identical.
Now I know that some of you will immediately start to compare the videos side-by-side looking for anything that sets the two apart. Considering that this is compressed flash video of a game normally rendered at 1080p on a large screen, you're wasting your time. Just wait until Digital Foundry comes out with their head-to-head comparisons before you start covering the Internet with your self-righteous corporate loyalty.
So please, just drop "resolutiongate." It's a dumb name anyway.[Image: GamersPrey/YouTube]
