While Microsoft's Xbox One is facing several gaming resolution controversies about support for 720p instead of 1080p, Sony's PlayStation 4 has also found itself in the same boat.

Popular franchise game Call of Duty: Ghosts was running at 720p resolution on the PS4 console till now. It has been mentioned that only the single player mode was running on 720p and the multiplayer is already running on 1080p.

However, Activision has confirmed that the single player mode will be changed from 720p to 1080p resolution after they roll out the day one patch for the game.

"Call of Duty: Ghosts runs natively at 1080p on the PlayStation 4. There was a configuration issue in the retail version on single player mode only. This has been addressed with a day one software update. People will be able to download the day one update when PlayStation 4 launches in their territory and play at native 1080p," read an official statement by Activision, reported Polygon.

"I don't think any team is just fixated on 1080p, it's just one of the options...but [1080p] games allow you to be more precise and a better gamer," stated Shuhei Yoshida, president of Sony Worldwide Studios to Gamespot. "That's clearly the benefit.

Besides CoD: Ghosts, other fps games might may also stand a chance to get a day one patch for a 1080p Full HD resolution, which gamers are unaware of.

Meanwhile, it has been also confirmed by the game developer Infinity Ward that the title runs on 720p on the Microsoft Xbox One console. The game has been earlier under much talk regarding its resolution on the next-generation consoles. More details are available here.
