Don't worry I'm still buying it regardless it's not like you would make it look worse on purpose looking forward to this !

That is not the point. It is false "advertising". And it is not a little toned down, it looks like a PS3/Xbox 360 game now
InMyOpinion  +   700d ago
I'm pretty sure the trailer showcased the 360/PS3 version. Has that not been confirmed?
DeadlyFire  +   700d ago
Well it was leaked first on X360 dashboard. So its possible. As creative director has made the claim that PS4 version will be identical to the E3 demo's graphics. Which if true then there is no need to worry. If not though? hmm.....

Remember this?:

Even if you select is still 720p and it is compressed 720p at that. And it looks good.

Here is the 14 minute demo in 1080p:

What is wrong with this picture? It is 14 minutes of 1080p and it is less that 1.4GB. That is still compressed video. We really have seen almost no uncompressed footage of the game in the past year. When you do you will see this:

It actually hasn't. Which you think would be the first thing they'd do if it was...

Check out the Gamespot Preview, I'm pretty sure the guy says it's PS4.

The gamespot video is the same video all publications are using. I believe it's ps4 footage but NO ONE KNOWS. Also, where does that video look bad at all? The gif everyone is seeing is literally a 2 second part of the video that granted looks bad but the rest of the video looks great. Yet, no one is pointing to the full video just that section where he is hacking the bridge so the lighting is bad. Now every gaming site who HAS NOT played the game is feeding into it. While all the sites who have played it have clearly said the game looks fantastic. Which leads me to my original post gamers are viewed as idiots by all other forms of media and I can see why. We cry and get outraged about stuff we haven't even tried or experienced for ourselves. Look at the ground zeroes crap. Omg it's only 2 hours, when the publication said no the main mission is 2 hours but there are more than just 1 mission. But you said it was only 2 hours I don't want this game anymore. Smh.

Hard8times  +   699d ago

I can't reply anymore after this but please tell me how the link you posted looks terrible. Please explain.
Tempest317  +   699d ago
You know the ps3 has the same control scheme as ps4 right? You cant call it fact wjen it could obviously be something else. Also, I agree with s1xt6en, that really doesnt look terrible...the day shot was kinda bare, but the night shot was awesome
BattleTorn  +   699d ago

The PS3/PS4 apparent have different button "pictures"

The footage is PS4 because the bumpers are pictures as having round edges, and PS3's are squarer.. (apparently, I don't have photographic memory)

Not all gaming companies do the trailer/teaser bait and switch (See MGS V Ground Zeroes which looks awesome and next gen despite being on last gen consoles as well).

Ubisoft was able to destroy 2 years of hype and anticipation within 24 hours because of their E3 2012 trailer trickery.

This makes me worry about the reality of The Division. I was really looking forward to closing that police car door...
game_infected  +   700d ago
why show it on 360ps3 after long delay?
dcj0524  +   700d ago
They better release a trailer similar to that 2012 one or else them sales will drop.
cyclindk  +   699d ago
Yeah, they only hurt themselves when they overshoot with this "proof of concept" footage and then downgrade...
BattleTorn  +   700d ago
They best release some impressive footage soon
cfc83  +   700d ago
Poor article, which doesn't attempt to understand the downgrade. I'm realistic and new graphics would never look as good as they did at E3. However, they ought to deliver a very good looking game, or folk like me will simply not buy it. They may have alot of publicity, but they haven't got my money.
InTheLab  +   700d ago
People disagree bombed me 3 weeks age when I said I was worried about this game. Games just don't up and get 6 months worth of delay that close to launch and the fact that Ubi won't even bother with the WiiU version tells me something is wrong with this game.
s1xt6en  +   700d ago
Gamers have got to be the dumbest demographic in the world. I'm going to end it there.
DevilishSix  +   699d ago
Nice racist comment there buddy. Way to lump everyone together and call names.
Elem187  +   699d ago
I agree he is an idiot but how is it racist?
MaxwellBuddha  +   699d ago
Gamers are a race? Who knew? Can I be our Jesse Jackson and make a living shaking down non-gamers?
DealWithIt  +   700d ago
I am not buying this game with downgraded graphics.
youndamie  +   699d ago
I don't understand why they showed ps360 footage at all. You would think they would only show next gen footage.
Elem187  +   699d ago
That was Nextgen... If Nextgen looks that bad they should of only advertised the PC version.
johnramus  +   699d ago
My god what the hell have they done to the game lol? I knew it was never gonna look like the E3 footage, but what the bolloks has happened to the graphics? It looks like Vice City on PS2 with a texture pack. And this is a PS4 trailer!

God help the Xbone, PS3 and xbox version if the PS4 looks like this.
Elem187  +   699d ago
I'm scared for the PC version... If the PC version gets that big if a scale back I might as well get it on Wii U because that PS4 footage looks like it was on last gen.
Geekman  +   699d ago
"Worse?" Seriously? It looks awesome.
WeAreLegion  +   699d ago
Why did they release that trailer? Why didn't they just make a trailer with the PC version?
madworldps4  +   699d ago
all demos since e2 2012 until e3 2013 from Pc version, oh my god man that a scumbag anda cheap movement,shame on you Ubisoft and yeh fuck it I will cancel my pre order!!!!!

Which is better, fitting a well bred engine to a car or designing a car around one. Remember now, each options has it's own strengths & weaknesses.
Oh... I suppose this applies to Watch Dogs as well.

I miss the weather the most.

After seeing weather, swaying trees, blowing leaves everything else looks utterly stale and lifeless.

I'd rather they drop the resolution down and introduce the graphical effects. 360/PS3 could do 1080p but they didn't for a reason.

I don't want higher resolution, shinier versions of last gen games. I'd like next-gen looking games, even if that comes at the cost higher resolution.

BattleTorn  +   699d ago
That was the most alarming part of the entire Story trailer / Gamespot preview - that there was zero weather effects, when it's been so present in previous footage
stefan771  +   699d ago
The e3 footage was probably from a PC far more powerful than 8th gen consoles
assdan  +   699d ago
How can people say it looks worse? They've only seen small portions of this game up to the point. There likely wasn't a graphics downgrade. It was probably just ran on a PC at E3, which mind you is common practice, especially with a 3rd party game.
MicDude  +   699d ago
I haven't seen the new trailer but if it does look so much worse than before then I think that it's only because the consoles were not capable of running the game before and if they were Ubisoft would not have had to make any changes. Watch_Dogs was announced well before we had any knowledge of these next gen consoles hardware and when they finally were told what the specs were, Ubisoft realized that it would not work. That's the most plausible explanation I could think of and I do not know if it is true. Anybody got anything better?

other than that weird part driving over the bridge,this actually looks pretty damn good,even for a compressed 720p youtube vid,,,explosion/smoke at 1.40 look solid,very nice character models/textures imo.
