Eurogamer's Digital Foundry has done some analysis work on the console versions of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare - namely its frame rate.

The PS4 version of the game boasts a constant resolution of 1080p, whilst the Xbox One switches between full 1920x1080 and an upscaled 1360x1080, which is dependent on what's happening on screen.

Whilst they claim the lower resolution on Xbox One gives a 'muddier appearance' to trees and grass compared to the PS4, it's the frame rate that's more of a stand out point. The Xbox One holds an almost-constant 60 frames per second, whilst the PS4's drops quite often when there's plenty of action on screen:

'We catch dips between the 50-60fps lines during battles through Seoul's streets - with drops to the high 40s caught when throwing the 'threat' grenades to scan the area for enemies. Even in perfectly matched scenes, the Xbox One's performance tends to hold at a perfect 60fps by comparison.'

Take a look at Digital Foundry's campaign mode comparison below.
