    I'm tired of the lies that have propagated for the last six years. In fact, FEW games have a locked internal resolution on the frame buffer. Period. COD4+ are the most commonly quoted, so I'll show that. Frankly, I'm dissipointed that the so neither the so called "experts" that write for DF, nor the "community" have picked up with this.
    Truely, you people are 4-5 years behind my level.

    This is console COD, run through various resolution/format & video outputs on an xbox 360.

    640*480 VGA vs 848*480 VGA vs 1920*1080 VGA vs 1080p HDMI


    1080p HDMI vs 1080p VGA vs 1080p Component vs 848*480 VGA


    640*480 vs 720p vs 1080i vs 1080p



    Something else interesting, is that many years ago Infinity Ward claimed the FOV was locked on console COD to a narrow 60* because of performance issues. This is also disprove as there is virtually ZERO impact from running a 160* FOV vs the default 60* FPV. 1-2fps on average across the board.
    Console COD should increase it to the more traditional 90-110* FOV range.

    And I'm tired of overly defensive little spastics actively believing their plastic box full of obsolete trash should be better than it is.

    Well, this revelation changes everything!

    Thanks for showing us the way, OP. I can understand your outrage at this travesty.

    Increasing the FOV ALWAYS has a negative impact on performance. Run the Far Cry 2 benchmark with widescreen set to off then turn it on. I've tested many games the same way (because I'm a geek with too much free time) and sure enough, increasing the FOV impacts the frame rate.

    Could a mod rename this to "COD is shite, only morons give a fuck about it."

    Ta.

    That's why Killzone 2 had an FOV like you were wearing a pair of binoculars.

    1) Of course an increased FOV impacts performance, more is being rendered. Testing your COD theory on a PC is a fallacy.

    2) Does one of your shit videos really say "note how when using VGA more smoke is rendered"?!

    Firstly, we are all aware of the credentials of Digital Foundry. Particularly Rich Leadbetter himself. Their findings are always explained, they tell you what they found and what it means. All I see here is some angry ramblings, some YouTube videos showing "something something resolutions something something frame-rates" as presented by some no mark. Who are you, and why should we listen to you over DF?

    Secondly...

    I totally called it.

    I...I cant go on living after knowing this. Its like the world holds no meaning to me now.

    How can I wake up tommorow and continue with my life knowing fully well that CoD has some resolution thingy? HOW?
