Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes boasts a higher resolution on PS4

Ground Zeroes PS4 daytime

Konami has just published their comparison page for Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes. This page allows you to take a look at direct-feed screenshots taken from the game on PS4, PS3, Xbox One, and Xbox 360. You can also view each image at its original size, allowing you to really take in the detail on the PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game.

Speaking of which, the bottom of the comparison page confirms that the PS4 version is the way to go. According to the chart, Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes runs at 60 fps on both Xbox One and PS4, but Konami had to reduce the resolution to 720p on Xbox One to achieve this parity. No such compromise was needed for the PS4 version so you’ll be able to experience the latest Metal Gear Solid adventure in 1080pย at 60fps on Sony’s powerhouse of a console.

Konami will make a video comparison available soon, but until then, check out the screenshots in the gallery below.

Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes will be coming to PS4, PS3, Xbox One, and Xbox 360 on March 18, 2014.

  • As per usual.
    PS4 versions of 3rd Party games = Superior

    • This seems to be a common trend now;
      Battlefield 4 900P = PS4/Xbox One = 720P
      Call of duty ghosts 1080P = PS4/Xbox one = 720P
      And now it’s happening with Metal Gear.
      Granted the Xbox one plays Tomb Raider at 1080P, the cost was half the frame rate compared to the PS4.

      Though Microsoft execs argue, it seems as though they can only do one of the two requirements, not both at the same time unless it’s Forza. (Which lets be honest, is expected to be 1080P 60FPS, it’s a driving game after all.) Even Titanfall, The game that people can’t stop talking about is ‘792P’ granted, this is the Beta’s resolution and may not be the case after release. The question that should be directed to MS is ‘Was the Kinect really worth it?’

      • Titanfall is great but playing it on High in 900p (Xbox One mode)…. yeah it really doesn’t look super great and it’s pretty much CoD like graphics only the game is actually fun.

        Forza 5 managed to get 60 fps, 1080p because they removed most of the features that required the cloud which meant the game looked less pretty than original was intended.

        And as Kojima said, the PS4 is looking to be the best out of the next gen consoles because he managed to get the game running in 1080p at 60 fps with some room to spare which is great.

        I just MS needs to quit the console market and focus on their Windows OS.

          No true gamer should ever want MS to quit the console market. The competition is needed. Imagine how power hungry and greedy sony would become if they were the only console maker besides Nintendo. Having both in the market is good for gamers regardless of your platform of choice.

          The best way to game is either own all 3 consoles, or own a high powered PC and a Nintendo Console.

          • No true gamer? There is no such thing as a “true gamer” because whether you play on an Xbone or a Playstation or even a Wii U, you’re still classfied as a gamer so saying Microsoft should leave doesn’t mean they aren’t “True gamers”. If Microsoft left the console industry, companies like that newer one in China would take over or even Apple or possibly SEGA, hell some company might even make a Tegra K1 console seeing how that chip is already more powerful than the PS4/Xbone.

          • sd

            The point is MS are needed at the moment to keep things competitive. Sure other players could come to the market, but its so easy for a games console to destroy a company with ltd resources. Large companies are needed to compete against other large companies.

            I really don’t understand people wanting any of the big 3 gaming companies to leave the gaming industry.

            If Apple join the Market things could get interesting, but I think Apple are even more obnoxious than MS. Plus I dont want a new console every 1-2 years or so, which seems to be a trend with Apple.

            As for Sega I have been saying for a while that they should re-enter the market. Personally my hope would be a combined high powered Sega/Nintendo console. If that ever happened console sales would be through the roof and they would have the largest selling games console in history. Lets hope for this.

          • Well either Microsoft needs to leave they just need a break is what I’m saying. I think if they took a few years out they could develop a decent console that will be on par with the next Nintendo/ Sony console.

      • sd

        Titanfall will be 900p when its released. But its still not 1080p. The question is whether they can start making games run at 1080P now that they have or are supposedly unlocking the 10% GPU allocation for kinect. It was always a bit strange to lock 10% of the GPU power away for kinect, when in many games many people dont care about the camera. Personally I say leave kinect for kinect games.

        • Sadly no, they will only be given 7% of the GPU taken up by the Kinect, whilst the Kinect will still use up 2% which isn’t a lot to work with plus, with the slower RAM speeds we can expect that they will only get to 900p 60 fps every time.

          • sd

            Personally I think the X-1 will reach 1080p once developers start using the power in the system. The issue with multi-platform games when that happens is that the PS4 will be pushed further. The outcome of this will ultimately be better frame rate or improved lighting and textures.

            But hey Its not a major issue and for multi-system owners like myself it wont really matter.

          • I think they’d be able to run it in 1080p but I don’t think they’ll be able to run the texture res the PS4 version would be running at.

  • The Clockwork Being

    Waiting for Xbone fanboys to come and say:

    ”Who cares this doesn’t look as good as Titan Fall”


    ”Devs aren’t even using the full potential of the Xbone”

    or even

    ”I play games not pixels”

    and last bu not least

    ”Who plays this rehashed game anyways? #SonyDronesFail #MetalGearSucking”

    • Wow…. bizzy_gie and Gameonfool are probably crying now because you pretty much summed up how retarded they are in a nutshell XD

      • bizzy gie

        And every Xbox fanboy too.

    • IRJason

      Not all of us are that way ๐Ÿ™‚ personally I think these “xbots” are as immature the “ponies”. You want to have a good convo about systems lets have it, but some of the points trying to be made by some just contradict or make no sense. People fight to hard for their console. Just play games and enjoy yourself

      • Well to be honest, you are the first sensible Xbox Fan I’ve seen yet so I respect your choice ^^

        • IRJason

          Lol thank you. I try not to be like that I’ve owned every system made. It would be easier for me to tell you what I haven’t owned. Both systems have the pros and cons. I chose Xbox first bc I liked the exclusives brought at launch(no offenses to the killzone knack guys/gals I’m sure they are great games just not into them)I knew I would own both eventually so why not buy the most expensive one first with more games I would play at launch. Got my ps4 just in time though INFAMOUS!

          • The Clockwork Being

            Wow so you played things since NES days. Then I applaud you sir.

          • IRJason

            Yes. I was born in 1984. I remember being 4 playing my moms Atari. I’ve had arari 3200,5200. Then got my NES though a sales magazine for my school lol. I’ve owned most all Nintendo products. Every sega product. Every playstaion every xbox. Never owed jaguar, nintendos virtual boy and intellivision That’s about it.

          • sd

            Did you ever own an amiga cd32. Like you I have owned pretty much every console. The Amiga CD32 was probably the most pointless purchase I ever made with regards to consoles. Being a few years older I started on the original ZX spectrum.

          • IRJason

            No I have never owned that one. Never heard if it to be honest lol. Why was it pointless? It looks familiar I looked it up but I never owned one.

          • sd

            It was a 32bit Amiga with a cd drive. It sold around 100,000 units. If they had added an amiga drive to play amiga games it would have been great. But there were very few decent games released on the system and it had a very short lifespan of just over 12 months (commodore went bankrupt).

          • The Clockwork Being

            Well I have played games from a great number of those consoles but have never really owned them or never played them with their traditional controller which sucks. Really wish I could doe.

            ”Never owed jaguar, nintendos virtual boy”

            Well I think its best we not talk about that console, it really isn’t worth mentioning. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      • The Clockwork Being

        Well don’t worry if you are not like the above than I wasn’t referring to you ๐Ÿ™‚

        When I say Xbone fanboys then of course I am referring to the ”Xbots”. And it’s fine to favor one console over another but as long as you don’t backlash every other then you simply being a gamer. For me I mostly a Sony and Nintendo gamer. It will happen at times were I will like my Wii U more like when Smash Bros comes out or times where the PS4 will be my preferred console for some time like when Infamous or Metal Gear Solid 5: Phantom Pain comes out.

        • sd

          I cant wait for Nintendo to do something that makes me happy with them again. It doesnt help that, while I love Mario Kart i am not a super smash bros fan. So that’s 1 less of the 4 games being released this year for me to buy.

          • The Clockwork Being

            My exact thoughts. If you have the time read my rant on Wii U daily. I thought I would have gotten downvotes but it seemed like the majority of people feel the same way.

            Here is a link to the rant. It’s the top comment by the way so it should be easy to find:


    • sd

      Personally my response would have been “better resolution, yet the review scores will be exactly the same”.

      But hey I am an xbox one owner who also likes the PS4 so what do I know.

      • The Clockwork Being

        Yep the reviews will be the same. But I am just representing people denying the truth.But I think the reason both will get the same reviews is because people will buy the game in its best quality, which is on the PS4, and review it. After they review it they will consider both versions to be that way.

  • Adecentboy777

    Another prove of the power gap between the two systems. It was obvious from the very beginning, but some guys (xbots) just don’t wanna accept and embrace the truth ๐Ÿ™‚

  • bizzy gie

    Is anyone really surprised?

    The gap will only get bigger.

    Especially if PS4 has more RAM for developers to use (Xbox One takes up 3 gigs).

  • sd

    I think at this stage its probably more worthwhile to run stories on games that actually have the same resolution on both consoles. That would probably be more newsworthy and more of a surprise I guess.

  • Kim Sanderhoff

    Am I the only one who feels sorry for Microsoft? Think about how sad the atmosphere must be in their office right now… and think about how much they must be clapping their hands in the Sony office.
