COD: Advanced Warfare Old vs. New Gen Image Comparison Reveals A Generational Leap In Visual Fidelity

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare copies are currently being shipped out for all the platforms. The game is also out in the wild and plenty of users are streaming it on their PS4 and even Xbox One. Since Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is the first game in the series, which has a next generation focused development, it is also the one which has the biggest leap in visual fidelity going from the PS3/X360 to PS4/XBO.

You can check out the difference in the slider comparisons below.

As can be seen from the comparison above, there is indeed a generational difference between both versions of the game. Also we can confirm that the game runs at 60 fps (or unlocked frame rate) on the old generation, but this definitely takes a huge toll on the image quality as they PS3 and Xbox 360 appear to be running at sub-720p resolution versus native 1080p on the PS4 and 900p on the Xbox One (Update:Sledgehammer Games revealed that the game runs at a dynamic resolution on Xbox One. So the game is still 1080p but scales resolution dynamically depending on engine load with the min resolution being 1360×1080).

What do you have to say to this image comparison? Let us know in the comments below.
