Excerpt: A few weeks ago, Activision invited us out to peaceful Dana Point, CA for the Call of Duty: Ghosts review event. Here, we had the opportunity to not only play the latest version of our favorite game series, but on both the PS3 and the PS4. Keep that in mind, as I will reference both systems in my review, because I had the chance to play the game (and go through the entire Single Player Campaign) on both systems.
