Well, this is the definition of lazy. Cutscene copied directly from MW2 in Ghosts.

That came up in the gaf thread, as did some other stuff the new Infinity Ward reused from past CoDs.

You'd be surprised how often this is done in all sorts of games.

I've seen it in several games, but this is one series where they have the money to not cut corners. It comes off as lazy when you are bragging about another billion dollar seller.

The most direct comparison would be bf4, where it feels like more than half of the game (player/vehicle models, sounds, etc) were ripped straight from bf3. I'm also pretty damn sure soul calibur has been using the exact same animations for certain characters for 5 games straight. It's expensive to create these assets, obviously they're going to reuse quite a bit of it. They're not just throwing away all their work from past games. So if they had an existing mocap from 5 years ago that fit their needs for a certain scene, they can tweak it a bit and save days of work. I've played through mw2 like 5 times and I didn't notice the similarity, OTOH I did notice that reused garage in mw3 immediately.

Either way, the difference between a ripoff and a homage has always been whether or not you like it. Play through the campaign first and then tell me if you still think they were lazy. There's plenty of valid criticisms to be made towards the campaign or cod in general, but lazy isn't one of them.

The receptionist at my office just brought me my copy that was delivered from Amazon. I guess I'll take it home and set it next to the DS4 that was delivered last week. Man, I hate waiting...

LMAO, people need to take a break from gaming for a bit if they can notice identical cutscenes from games years apart.

When you go to the store it lists two downloads that are named the same (COD Ghosts). You have to download the second one or at least start downloading it, then go to your download list and the free fall map will be there. It was a confusing mess.

I'm starting to get really concerned about the ps4 version of ghosts. Today I heard it mentioned on a podcast that even the MP has frame rate issues. And these are the same kind of guys who say resolution doesn't matter....so if they're noticing it, I'm thinking it's really going to be really noticeable to my more critical eye.

I'm gonna be really pissed if they ended up sacrificing fluidity to check the 1080p box. I'd rather they drop it to 900p if they have to than screw the frame rate. We've seen BF running at nearly solid 60 at 900p, if that's what they need to do, then they damn well better do it (or at least give us the option).

Ghosts seems a touch slower paced than previous versions - and I like that.

I don't get what happened here. I had to go to the display settings to see if i was outputting 480p. MW3 looks better than this

The Xbox One screens that were released by the Target guy have a very different color saturation. It looks correct compared to the muddy current gen versions.

Hopefully the PS4 version has a similar saturation.

Well for current gen, colors don't look bad, but the sharpness is rather blurry. Like i said, it feels like im playing on the wii at 480p

Yeah, it's really blurry, and there's barely any AA. I actually did switch to 480p for a bit and it was only a bit blurrier.

Makes you wonder what the internal resolution is... Maybe this is why Digital Foundry hasn't released their comparison for current gen like they did for Assassin's Creed 4...
