Unplayable Lag and Rubber-Banding (New PS4 User)

Is anyone else experiencing lag that makes the game unplayable?

I bought my PS4 2 days ago after having played Ghosts on the 360 for months without any issue. However, when I plugged in the PS4, ran all the updates and started playing, I was teleporting, lagging out and unable to play the game at all. It was to the point where even in the beginning of a DOM game, the progress bar on the capture of A would skip out and go from 10% to 90% in a blink.

I'm within my 15 day return period for the game and for my console. If I don't see any noticeable improvement in the next couple of days I'll be forced to cut my losses and switch back to the golden oldies.

Thoughts?

I have not experienced anything like that and I've had the ps4 and game since launch. Plays better for me then BO2 or MW3 did on my xbox.

I have never had anything like that at all just give it a couple days it might just need to be broken in or you have bad internet connection.

I haven't had this at all. I had a lot of skipping and lag on PS3, but not a single time on PS4.

its the worst. when i kill someone, air support, sniping almost all the time! i have good inet speeds also. i wonder if it just the ps4?

it doesn't seem to matter if its a certain time of day, it happens all the time

i lowered the quality to 480p and watched a video to change my router setting to lower the speed coming from my router hoping the problem had something to do with the 'lag comp"... it still happens

whats the solution?

First: You bought the PS4 to play COD only?

Second: The XBONE players are experiencing the same,

Ever since the last patch I have also been experiencing "rubber" band effect as you dudes like to call it. Its latency, delayed reactions.

Usually the game sorts its self out, for others its not so.

Definitely didn't buy PS4 for COD only but do enjoy playing.

I didn't realize XBONE players are experiencing similar issues, most forum posts I saw were relaying that this was a PS4 only issue.

I guess this is one of those sit and wait, grin and bear situations.

The game is fine, problem is the low numbers playing Ghosts on the PS4. We are 3 ish months into this game now and unless 150K more people buy the game then connections will be up and down.
