Some features in Call of Duty: Ghosts, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare and Call of Duty: Black Ops III differ in the seventh generation consoles (Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3) compared to the PC and eighth generation ones (Xbox One and PlayStation 4).
- The Ground War playlist is not available to the 7th generation systems.
- In addition to the graphical differences, the use of depth of field in cinematic sequences is visually more obvious on PC and 8th gen versions.
Call of Duty: GhostsEdit
- Sniper Rifles in campaign mode still have the scope view of older games instead of the new dual render seen in multiplayer and Extinction, whereas in the current gen versions the new scope view is applied in all game modes.
Call of Duty: Advanced WarfareEdit
- Most weapons that were added to multiplayer via updates (including the single-wielded variants of the SAC3) are not available to the 7th generation systems. The only exception is the M1 Irons (as well as the AE4 and the Ohm if their respective DLC packs are installed).
- In the campaign of the 7th gen, enemy Atlas forces never use the ASM1, AMR9 (except in "Captured") and IMR against the player. Additionnally, the KVA (and Atlas hazmat soldiers in "Bio Lab") don't use the ARX-160, MK14 and MP11, and the Sentinel don't use the AK12.
- On the 7th gen, the campaign's unique ammo printing version of the IMR has a rear sight above the printing indicator.
- In the first cutscene for the mission "Induction", Cormack doesn't have goggles on his helmet on 7th gen systems.
- In the mission "Atlas", Rivers doesn't wear the glasses and hat seen in the current gen versions.
- In the bathroom next to the room where POTUS is located in "Atlas", a mirror can be seen above the sink on 7th gen (though with no proper reflection), whereas in the current gen versions there is no mirror.
- In "Traffic", no enemy dogs appear after crossing the streets near the end on 7th gen.
- In "Utopia", there is a hole in the window for the intel on 7th gen, whereas in the current gen versions the window must be smashed in order to acquire it.
- The RPG that can secretly be found in "Throttle" lacks any textures in the 7th gen.
- In "Captured" and "Terminus", Gideon wears a hat.
- Additionally, in "Captured", the bodybags hanging from the ceiling don't sway when knocked into.
- In "Terminus", there are no explosions below when Irons hangs onto Mitchell's arm.
- On the PS3 version, objects in the multiplayer maps lack physics or their proper textures (unlike on the other platforms), e.g. the lamps on Ascend or the decorative glass windows on Greenband.
