Albert Penello Told “You Don’t Need to Know” on Call of Duty: Ghosts’ Resolution on Xbox One; Explains More

by on October 25, 2013 8:35 AM 187

The saga of the resolution of Call of Duty: Ghosts on Xbox One  and PS4 continues, after yesterday evening Sony Computer Entertainment Vice President of Publisher and Developer Relations Adam Boyes revealed that the game will run at a native 1080p resolution on PS4, while the pixel count on Xbox One is still a mystery following unconfirmed rumors that it’ll be 720p.

Today Microsoft’s Director of Product Planning Albert Penello revealed on NeoGaf that he did ask the executive that runs third party relations at Microsoft about it, but he was simply told that he doesn’t need to know.

Here’s a fact that will blow your mind.

The guy that runs 3rd party relations for Xbox is one of my best friends. And we have to play this information game all the time. He has the utmost respect for the confidentiality of partner details. So I did call him and ask him, and he told me very directly “You don’t need to know”

End of conversation. End of speculation.

Nobody at MS will comment on this. Most people don’t know. This is Activision’s product, and it’s completely up to them on how/when they want to show this product, why they choose to roll-out their game in a certain way, and what platforms they choose to show on.

There is no point in lying about anything. If I did know, I would have just said “I can’t say”. You all would have gotten the same answer.

Afterwards, he explained further that “you don’t need to know” doesn’t necessarily mean it’s bad news, and that Microsoft Game Studios President Phil Spencer is in the dark as well.

3rd party is a separate organization. Phil doesn’t know. Most people don’t know. That information is kept private.

“You don’t need to know” doesn’t mean anything. I get that from him all the time, whether it’s good news or bad news.

I don’t know how Sony sets up their publishing organization or why they are choosing to share.

He finally mentioned that there are many factors at play behind announcements or the lack of thereof.

Not at all. You, as a student of the industry, should know that there are MANY factors at play here. Marketing deals, state of the code, competitive pressures. We show stuff at E3 first then gets announced later for PS, then they show something that gets announced later for us. There are a ton of examples of this.

Why did NBA show on PS4 then immediately disclose 1080p on Xbox One? Why isn’t Activision saying anything? Why are certain games showing first on ours, or first on theirs? Why go games get delayed? Quality? Tuning?

You should know by now that there is never one answer in all these cases. Sometimes it’s bad, sometimes it’s not.

I’ll be bummed if it’s true. But the fact nobody is saying anything doesn’t make me jump to conclusions.

I’m quite sure Penello won’t be the only one bummed if the rumor on Call of Duty: Ghosts’ resolution on Xbox One will be ultimately proven true, but for the moment he doesn’t jump to conclusions, and probably we shouldn’t as well.

        Racing game should Run 1080p/60FPS

        • Usman Khan

          It’s not about should, it’s about can. CoDGhost is using old engine there nothing in this game tht xbox one can’t handle at 1080p/60fps.

          • Anzil

            forzas a joke of a racing game it only hit 1080p60fps cause it uses static lighting, no weather/day cycle…..im buying both consoles but gt6 uses way more tech then forza and it hits 1080p60fps on current gen and driveclub looks ten times better but people will be blindsided by forzas oversaturation and overuse of gloss reflection!

            http://www.gamespot.com/videos/exclusive-forza-5-gameplay-trailer/2300-6415723/

            Forza is already playable at xbox tour and those who play at there are priasing it it looks stunning and much better thn GT 6. btw GT6 is not 1920*1080. and it has framerate issues.

            http://www.gtplanet.net/gt6-demo-graphic-performance-analyzed-by-digital-foundry/comment-page-2/

            on other hand CoD looks like current console on ps4 thts why xbox should be able 1080p.

          • Anzil

            obviously it wont look as good as forza i was pointing out that forza looks fake not bad…..and technically doesnt come close to gt6s physics and driveclub dynamic lighting and environments! and if cod was 1080p on xbox they would have come out and said it already haha head of ms PR and gets denied by a company they partnered with? ya right

          • Usman Khan

            if u think if some game is technically superior is better, thn ps4 is outdated coz metro last light, crysis 3 are technically far more superior thn killzone. Theres no of things which matter, Forza not using dynamic weather is actually better decision coz most of car sims with dynamic weather looks awful in different condition. Physics on forza 5 are alot better(if u hav played urself u would have known) thn current gen sims. well i’ll w8 till it’s confirm if CoD is 1080 or 720.

          • Tagarte

            driving games are easy to make pretty this is nothing new all the way back to ps1 so talking about them is a waste

          • Usman Khan

            lol driving games are easy to make and CoD is hard even when they are using same engine with some tweaks? Wonder if u ever made a racing game? will love to play ur game for sure :)

        • billygoat

          I think the reason why Forza is running at a higher res, is because the game doesn’t have levelution like bf or “something like” what COD has. There is more things going on in COD than a racing game that really only does damages to cars and minor damages to the surrounding.

    I’m all for both the consoles this generation but I find it hard to believe a big company like MS can’t / doesn’t know such a detail. Heck they can demand it if they really wanted to and Activision is holding out. There are dozens of games out there but only 2 consoles, MS has the bargaining chips. That and Sony just confirmed theirs is running on 1080p

    • Maurice Wilburn

      Publishers putting an embargo on information is nothing new. PS4 launches a week ahead of the Xbox One, so it shouldn’t be a surprise if they get to disclose information a week early in advance.

      • Tagarte

        that’s a stretch…

        • Maurice Wilburn

          Have devs/publishers not put an embargo on information? and why have Sony just recently announced this?

  • TristanPR77

    This is a bad situation for Microsoft. All this silent about the subject tells you one thing; the x1 version is not 1080p right now, if it were, they would have told everyone by now. My guess is that they are working very hard right now to change the resolution and not look weak.

    Microsoft is paying a LOT of money to Activision for the time exclusive deal and to pretend that Call of Duty is an xbox exclusive. The PS4 version being superior put Microsoft in an ugly position and a bad position because Microsoft is trying to sell a console at $500 when the console at $400 have a superior version of the game. That is a very ugly position, gamers are not stupid.

    • Joseph Lan

      Apparently some gamers ARE stupid. Because many of them have been trying to convince me that the difference between 720p and 1080p “isn’t significant.”

      • Matthew Thomas

        Depends on the size of your TV and the size of the distance between you and the screen.

        1080p is really only noticeable if you’re sitting close to a big TV. If you’re sitting five or six feet away from a 32” screen, then you won’t notice much of a difference.

        Not unless you have 20/15 eyesight or something.

        • Chris Morley

          You’d need to sit closer than 6.25 feet to a 32 inch screen to start noticing pixels at 720p, using the 300dpi to 1ft rule of thumb.

          So yeah, if you’ve got a small screen at 32 inches or lower, then you’re probably ok. If you’ve got anything larger however, it makes a big difference.

          A 50 inch screen running 1080p with an optimal living room viewing setup (approx 6.5 feet) you won’t be able to see the pixels. Effectively ‘retina’ display, to coin an Apple term. 720p however will leave the pixels very noticeable.

        • krom

          So why innovate? Why building better devices? Just move your seat closer to the tv!

          • dirkradke

            The Reality Check dude on Gamespot has an episode that talks about frame rate and resolution. He explains it pretty well.

        • Axe99

          Not true – I game 6 foot from a 32 inch box and there’s a substantial difference between 720p and 1080p (I have a PC hooked up to the TV as well, via HDMI, so have stuff on it in 1080p all the time), and my eyes are nothing to get excited about. The difference in resolution (a 50% increase of 1080p over 720p) is absolutely something to be interested in if we’re interested in visual fidelity while gaming, and if we weren’t, there’d be a fair chance we wouldn’t be as interested in next-gen systems in the first place ;).

          • Maurice Wilburn

            Matthew is actually a bit wrong if you sit close enough you’d notice the difference on even a 32 inch TV. The general consensus is the bigger the TV the further you can sit away and note a difference between resolutions. At 32 inch you have to sit around roughly 4-5 feet to note a difference between 720p and 1080p. Of course the persons vision is a factor. I don’t know if I can take your word about your eyes being nothing to be excited about, but I think it’s possible your estimated viewing distance is off.

          • Axe99

            Haha, my eyes may or may not be a reasonable guess (although I’m in my late 30s now, and they’re not going to win any awards, although I don’t wear glasses with 1cm thick lenses either), but I’m very confident about the viewing distance – I game in a reclined, lying down, and I’m 6′ tall. While you lose some of that height in the angle (the recliner isn’t completely flat) my feet rest 2′ from the base of the screen – so it’s at least 6′, I was just rounding it down rather than exaggerating.

          • dirkradke

            Too bad it’s not 50% between 1080p and 720p. More like a difference of 33% and if anti-aliasing is used you might not even notice the difference especially of the game is 60fps. Depending on the quality of your HDTV you may not even obtain that 33% difference.

          • Axe99

            We’re talking the bump from 720p to 1080p, which is exactly a 50% increase. If we were talking the bump down, we’d say that 720p is 33% less than 1080p. It’s all about the base. I’ve been talking from the difference going up (720p as the reference point) so using 50%. Given people are talking about not noticing the difference between 720p and 1080p (ie, using 720p as a reference point), it’s an appropriate comparison. And use, if you’ve got an older HDTV that only does 720p or 1080i, you’re right, you may not notice the comparison, but it’d be a fairly old HDTV these days.

          • dirkradke

            Tell you what – go ahead and think whatever makes you happy.

          • Axe99

            I do already – I was just trying to give people some perspective. My post is based in fact and longstanding conventions in terms of analysing statistics, and I’m very comfortably using it. You should also think whatever makes you happy. Either way, whether it’s 33% or 50%, it’s still a significant difference ;).

      • twinspectre

        some gamers you mean XBONE fanboys right ??
        if the answer is yes than they are pathetic
        because all these fanboys are bashing the Wii U because is a Weak piece of Hardware but Now they have a Weak piece of Hardware lol they are insecure and pathetic fanboys

        • Spontaneous_Me

          I’ll have to disagree because the Wii U really isn’t that great of a hardware. It only just beats out current gen tech which just isn’t good at all for a next-gen consoles. At least the Xbox One and PS4 are almost identical.

          • twinspectre

            even the Xbone isn’t that great piece of hardware but Microsoft will sell a weak hardware for 500$/€
            at least the Nintendo Wii U is cheaper than Xbone :)
            Xbone = Current Gen v.2.0
            PS4 = Next Gen

          • Axe99

            A rumoured 50% bump in resolution isn’t ‘almost identical’ (obviously we need to wait to see how this plays out, it could well not be that bad), but they are much closer than the Wii U is to either.

          • Maurice Wilburn

            It’s not a rumored 50% bump in resolution, it’s a rumored 50% bump in raw power which based on benchmarking test of the GPUs doesn’t equate to a significant real world difference. Shinji Mikami most recently went on record to they are identical to the point “why do we even need two consoles?”

          • Axe99

            The difference between 1080p and 720p is 50% – 1080p is a 50% increase from 720p. The current PS4 resolution is confirmed at 1080p, the XB1 is rumoured at 720p, which is where the 50% comes from.

          • Maurice Wilburn

            Okay, I never heard someone use that terminology on the subject.

          • Axe99

            All good – we don’t actually know what the CoD: Ghosts res on XB1 is yet, so it could turn out to also be 1080p and we’ll all get a good laugh out of everyone getting so excited ;). And 720p gaming is still fun – we’ve been gaming on console generally at 720p or less (natively) for most of this gen. Important to keep all this talk in perspective :).

          • skf4

          • Axe99

            Haha, hey SK, just meandering the interwebs, quite a few interesting things floating about in the lead-up to next gen ;). How’s your warm-up to next-gen going?

          • Stick it to the man!

            True, but you need a large tv like 40ins plus to appreciate 1080p.

          • Axe99

            You appreciate it more on 40″ plus, but I can see a clear difference playing on a 32″, 6′ away. Plus, a lot of houses have 40″+ screens these days (or people gaming in smaller rooms game closer to their screen). It deffo is the case that the bigger the screen, the greater the benefit of the higher resolution, but personally I can tell the difference and far prefer the full 1080p (the full res of my screen – I’d probably prefer more if I had a higher-res display).

          • Stick it to the man!

            Definetly 1080p is better, i mean 720p is so last gen lol

        • nate

          Some people saying that might just be legitimately ignorant. Some gamers haven’t actually seen true 1080p gaming.

      • Eagles83

        It’s all relative to the distance away from the screen and the size of the tv. A 50+ inch screen at 1080 will look better than 720 from 6 to 9 feet away. At 10 ft you can’t see a difference. If you are using a screen smaller than 50 inches then the benefit of 1080 drops off more unless you are really close. It isn’t as cut and dry as you make it out to be.

        • Axe99

          The difference in resolution is the equivalent of the difference in looking at a 2.1 megapixel photo and a 0.9 megapixel photo, and for me, with below-average eyesight, there is a significant improvement in clarity moving from 720p to 1080p on a 32″ display 2 metres from me (I game on PC as well, so very easy to test, and often do as I try and get the best balance of frame rate, resolution and detail for whatever game I’m playing). For example, I preferred ME1 at 1080p to 720p, even with a substantially lower framerate, because it made the details ‘pop’, and really brought you into the scene (and combat was less of a focus in the original ME).

      • Maurice Wilburn

        Depending on factors such as TV size and viewing distance the difference could be very significant or insignificant, it’s not a cut and dry issue. I haven’t gamed in 1080p, but I’ve seen movies in 1080p and I’ve seen movies in 720p, does 1080p look better? Yes it is obviously better. Is it by a huge margin? In my experience no.

    “You don’t need to know”

    Couldn’t he have been saying that because it’s 720p and didn’t want to deliver the bad news?

    Whatever the case, we’ll have to wait and see. Until then, I’ll be wondering why in the hell I’m on an article about CoD!

    • http://www.paulogy.com Paul

      That would be “you don’t want to know”

      • Bankai

        It works both ways.

        • Tagarte

          yeah it does, “I have really good news that clears all this up but i can’t tell you” sincerely Al Penello…

  • xbomination1

    Something about this reeks to me.Mr.Pennello staunchly defended the capabilites of the console.He claimed that games would be on par with the PS4 versions.So how would he know this and make those claims without knowing the resolution and performance of said games ??? He also stated this technical fellow would fly to various locations to aid developers with hardware issues or help them to maximize the performance. So if they were indeed having problems reching 1080 surely there would have been some communications between them.

  • foureyes oni

    i’m gonna laugh so hard if it does end up being 1080p and we’ve all just been played.

    oh and that part

    “I don’t know how Sony sets up their publishing organization or why they are choosing to share.”

    oh the irony ,,,,,pretty sure many people out there asking the same thing about ‘how Microsoft sets up their publishing organization or why they are choosing NOT to share’ …

          They also created Windows Millennium Edition. That was true darkness indeed. However, you only have to look at Windows 95, 98, XP, 2000 pro, 7, 8.1 (okay maybe not so good), 2003 server, 2008 server, Azure cloud network, and Office Suite products to know good can come from bad.

    All new TV’s, tell you resolution, as soon as you pop the game in. This is going to be an EpicFail, if this comes out true, xbox720(p)

    • hoodium

      Will be upscaled. So TV will say full HD anyways, but the Game itself will run in 720p

  • JinOntario

    Ahhhh, this sounds like the good ol’ Microsoft we know and love. Did anyone really think they had changed just because they did a 180 on just about all that it is XBox One? Johnny Tight Lips (rumor has it he works for M$) let it slip that XBox One might actually be rebranded and launched as XBox 180!

    I know, for fact, that all XBox One’s secrets are guarded by the same folks who have successfully kept the Colonel’s secret recipe a secret all this time. Cause’ God forbid if information like this ever fell into the wrong hands.

  • Maurice Wilburn

    Going to wait for confirmation. I find it insane how much of a big deal this is? 720p looks great 1080p looks better, but in the end it’s the games that matter. To reiterate on my precious post the PS4 launches a week early which could be the reason why the information was disclosed to Sony ahead of MS, so like I said before give it a week before setting the internet on fire.

    • dirkradke

      People really don’t notice the clarity of 1080p vs. 720p unless it’s at the edges of the object. That is what anti-aliasing is for – to remove the jagged edges. A higher resolution requires less anti-aliasing because the pixels are smaller in a given area. It’s entirely possible for the games to look identical, but have different resolutions because this reason.

      • shelfcompact

        lol, wow.

          • dirkradke

            Well, it was kind of creeping me out in a cool kind of way. :-)

  • Jack Slater

    720p confirmed.

    If the ps4 was 720p and the xbox one, 1080p, suddenly, it wouldn’t be ‘you don’t need to know’, but rather ‘ penello, go and flood the forums,TV,radio,YouTube, internet,cinemas ads, corn flakes boxes, condom boxes, milk, Oprah Winfrey, ign,gamespot,Forbes,CNN,polygon,edge,Eurogamer,digital foundry, doritos packs, buses on streets, cabs, Google ad campaigns,jimmy fallon , Fecebook and tweeter, and tell everyone our xbox one version is superior and is the ideal place to enjoy the ghosts experience’.

    This is what would happen if the ps4 version was only 720p, and xbox one, 1080p.

    Why are they so afraid of the truth? Is it because 90% of the north america preorders come from cod-halo fans, and if someone just announced the xbox one ghosts version is only 720p, 80% of these preorders from cod-halo fans would be canceled, gamers would be so furious, frustrated and disgusted of having the final confirmation the ps4 is already much more powerful now, and next years, the gap may be so huge, with true visible huge differences on visuals between both platforms, that they would run to amazon or whatever site they preordered the game on, and in 30 seconds, blindly,without no further analysis or thinking, they would click on ‘confirm cancelation’ button.

    I will get a ps4, I don’t care about ghosts on the xbox one, if it’s 1P or 3000P. I won’t buy the game,anyway. But I think it’s not fair and correct to not tell the truth to those who are going to spend +500$ in 1 month.

    Remember my next words:

    Knowing how xbox fanboys are, in less than 3 days, there will be a petition, or something like that, with people threatening microsoft, asking them to tell the truth about the resolution, until day X. After that day, if nobody from microsoft has told the truth, and keep releasing the same BS, like’ the game is amazing on xbox one’, etc etc, without talking about the true resolution, people will cancel their xbox one preorders.

    Just remember what I said here.it’s gonna happen. I don’t see a different issue.
    Nor Activision or microsoft benefit from telling the truth, specially if they confirm the 720p.
    They just want to keep people dreaming and happy, until preorders can’t be canceled, and they get their billion$, like every single year.
    But… but… Sony confirmed they are 1080p. They no longer can play the game ‘wait until you have purchased the game and your money is now on our pockets, for discovering the resolution’. That game is impossible, now that ps3/4 gamers are happy, confident and reassured about ghosts resolution. Now, microsoft snd Activision must talk. Real talk.

    The more they wait, the more rage xbox fans will release, if/when they learn its actually 720p.

    Hot.hot.hot.

    • Maurice Wilburn

      I swear if Xbox One version is 1080p, you and every other Sony fanboy has to officially shut up about the power difference of the consoles and delete you Neogaf accounts.

      • anzil

        its been confirmed 720p on xbox one now whats your excuse?

        • Maurice Wilburn

          Never made any excuses. If it is true then it was an idiotic move by MS. Still don’t think it’s a big deal.

        How do you feel, hated by your parents because they are tired of buying xbox360 for you, they always die after 2 months.and they hate you since day one, the abortion didn’t work.

        How do you feel, alone in your bedroom, the only girl you talk to is the girl at McDonald when you order your big Macs.and also the old lady next door, when she knocks the door to tell you everybody in the block is hearing your porn movie noises and dialogs.

        I am happy with my disagrees, you can’t imagine.

        • Slay

          sound like you’re expressing the details of your life to me.

    • dirkradke

      I think what we know is that we don’t know and 720p for the X-Box one is not known. Of course if we have to wait for the game to come out I don’t see that as a big deal. People are going to buy the game regardless of the resolution if they plan to buy a PS4 or XB1 at all.

  • zeal_assassin

    If the PS4 video game counter parts being superior to the X1 version become an common thing, you can bet MS will start enforcing a new policy.

    • Slay

      but it won’t because Ps4 is already inferior, hunty.

        Your source must be wikipedia. No surprises there, hunty.

      Did its processing power help downgrade it too, hunny?

      • dirkradke

        Is “hunny” a word?

  • dirkradke

    In this case of CoD: Ghosts – if it’s 1080p and 30fps then I would prefer 720p and 60fps. I suppose the ultimate would be at least 1080p and 60fps. If the frame rate stutters at times then I think I would prefer a stable frame rate over a higher pixel count. The game is going to look good regardless of the resolution and simply a higher resolution doesn’t guarantee a great looking game.

  • Larry Skells

  • REP

    It’s pretty obvious Xbots doesn’t run 1080p. Why would Activision or Microsoft come out and say it’s running 720p and PS4′s version running 1080p? Let’s just say it is true. Would you go out and tell the public about it or would you rather keep it silence so that you can sell more games? Of course you would keep it silence or else people would be cancelling the orders and head over to PS4 instead or even worst cancel Xbox One order too. And it’s running 1080p, they would have come out and announce it like Sony did!! There’s nothing to lose but gain.

  • MattS71

    Another Xbone fail. Clearly MS priority was in everything but quality hardware

    • Slay

      Clearly your priority was to add nothing perspicacious to say. And by looking at your comment history, you’ll probably have to look up that word, going by your basic vocabulary.
