Rumor: Advanced Warfare On PS4 Will Be "Definitive Version"

If you had to guess the lead platform for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, what would you say?

Considering that all downloadable content will debut on the Xbox One and the majority of recent CoD titles sold have been Xbox versions, the answer should be obvious, right?

Wrong. Well, supposedly.

Industry insider Ahsan Rasheed, also known as "thuway" in the NeoGAF forums, Tweeted the following comment:

"Also I want to say one thing to all the Xbox One fans that keep telling me COD is X1 lead platform. It’s not. It’s a marketing deal."

Rasheed claims that new developer Sledgehammer Games will focus on the PlayStation 4 and in fact, "developers inside Infinity Ward prefer the PS4. "Majority will use it to play at home," added Rasheed. And given the current sales lead Sony's machine enjoys, perhaps that won't be untrue come the holiday season. As for how Infinity Ward relates to Sledgehammer, Rasheed simply replied:

"So cute. If you think the PS4 version won’t be the definitive console version technically, I have some bad news."

You can choose to buy or sell this, but I'm selling it. If Advanced Warfare has really been in development for the past several years (and I believe that), than work began long before the PS4 jumped out to an early lead. Heading into this generation, few would've predicted that the PS4 would be ahead of the Xbox One, especially in this country, where CoD reigns supreme.

The decision to choose a lead platform was made some time ago. And I can't imagine why they'd pick the PS4 given the history the CoD franchise has with Xbox.

You make some good points there, but the fact of the matter is. COD developers have always preferred Xbox over PS. You really believe that with how deep pocketed Microsoft is they're going to let Sledgehammer/Infinity Ward/Treyarch use the PS4 as a lead platform? It's history repeating itself. PS3 is more powerful than the 360 did any of those three developers use it to its full advantage? nope. In most cases they couldn't even get the game to look the same on both platforms.

Last Gen and this Gen is different Where the 360 was easier to develop for than the PS3 now it seems to be a role reversal Where the PS4 is the preferred console for developers.

I'm guessing Activision will want to keep this as quiet as possible.

how does being the lead platform make it the definitive version?
sigh, getting kinda sad how journalists search the bins like rabid dogs for ANYTHING they can find to make the ps4 look good.
i mean are you really THAT desperate!?
also, even if the ps4 version looks better, which is what your implying im assuming, who gives a rats a$$?
since when is COD bought for its amazing visuals?
xbox one is getting the map packs first, and COD has ALWAYS been about the MP, so xbox will always be the definitive version as long as antivision keeps up the deal.
sorry, but im really getting sick of this pathetic flamebait bullsh*t!

Lol i never laughed so hard after reading a news post. I call this a BS news post and rumor. If the "definitive version" of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare was on the Ps4 then why was the gameplay footage for the trailer taken from XBOX ONE? it even said it from the begin so ya i call BS...

anyways after saying that i still cant wait to play it on my Ps4 when it releases.

I know this is off topic but did anyone see the specs for the new wolfenstein game? LOL the game needs four discs for the 360 version lol.

microsoft has a marketing agreement they paid big bucks to Activision for.
Is no secret the PS4 is easier to code for and is more powerful than the Xbone (See Ghost 1080 on PS4 v 720p on Xbone). Its not a secret developers prefer the PS4. So Activision can take MIcro$ofts gold all they want but that isnt going tto stop INfinity Ward, Slesgehammer etc developing on the best platform then porting it to the weaker system. Last gen the 360 was easier to code for - that is no longer the case.

The Activision/MS agreement is why I don't invest time or $$ into this franchise anymore. I had a great run with people who I really enjoyed gaming with, but as a PS owner it was just ridiculous to lag a month behind in map/dlc releases. Then it got to the point that the new maps would come out literally two weeks before the new title. Many of us just walked away. It would take one HELL of a REBOOT to get me to even look towards another COD game ever again.

The lead platform isn't something that changes due to sales. The lead platform is the one with the most power.
