Call of Duty 3 and Tony Hawk’s Project 8: Not 720p

It's ActivisionFrom the fellows at Joystiq comes this strange and potentially annoying tidbit for 360 and PS3 gamers. According to the German gaming site Games-Aktuell, two of Activision‘s latest titles aren’t running as well as they should be.

Call of Duty 3 and Tony Hawk’s Project 8 are apparently running at less than 720p. In this case, COD 3 is running at 1040×620 pixels, while Tony Hawk’s latest skateboard game is at 1040×580. Not exactly the kind of stellar looks one would expect to see on new Xbox 360 titles.

In either case, it doesn’t seem to be for the purpose of increasing framerates as Project 8 still has framerate woes, so Joystiq asks a rather pertinent question. Additional follow-up reveals that Activision Germany is looking into the problem, though they weren’t aware of it originally.

Now, how does this affect PS3 gamers? Well, if the same little problems that popped up in the Xbox 360 versions are a result of bad coding, then there’s a pretty good chance new owners of PS3s will not be getting the kind of gameplay they were expecting from the two titles upon purchasing the system. Not exactly the response to Gears of War that Activision was hoping CoD 3 could be, but oh well. Still, here’s to hoping they find out what’s wrong and fix it.
