Watch_Dogs feels like it's becoming a big PlayStation series with the way it's showcased with th PS4. I was getting it for PS4 regardless anyways

"720p on PS360, 1080 on PS4, TBD on Xbox One"

"Big difference between last generation and next gen. You can see it. PC can hit up to 60fps 1080, but I think they are aiming for parity with PS4"

"Both hit 30fps easy. I think Xbox One suffers a few dips from 60fps. PS4 is pretty smooth. Definitive version"

"PS4 is pretty smooth.Definitive version"

hmmmmmmmm, i wonder what will also be different between ps4 version and xbox version

I think this story with Watch_Dogs is widespread across the entire next-gen landscape concerning most/all upcoming games:

PS4 is the superior platform for multiplats.

And yet more proof that Xbox One will be holding back multiplat development. Hey, at least last-gen developers had enough integrity to make the 360 version or PS3 version superior in the cases where they were able to better utilize the hardware. This upcoming gen will be the gen of backdoor deals where money changes hands and "parity" is bought in the name of not looking like the vastly inferior system.

DedicatedtoSony is back and trolling as usual. Isn't this why you were gone for so long?

Where is the proof that X1 is holding PS4 back?

"And yet more proof that Xbox One will be holding back multiplat development."

And yet the article specifically says:
"Keep in mind, these are not confirmed numbers, just rumors from a trust source, so take everything with a grain of salt."

So some dips in 60fps that this UNNAMED source THINKS happens and it is automatically holding back multiplat development?

"at least last-gen developers had enough integrity to make the 360 version or PS3 version superior in the cases where they were able to better utilize the hardware"

What?! You did nothing but complain that 360 was holding PS3 games back due to DVD or some parity requirement. But it turns out it was PS3's own cell architecture that was doing it.

So many excuses and lame attempts.

Eonjay  +   867d ago
When you buy a video card with more power you expect better performance. Its a shame that multiplat titles will shoot for parity instead of potential. When you buy a PS4 you buy better hardware but the political nature of the industry will keep the titles looking equal.

From the developer themselves:

"Big difference between last generation and next gen. You can see it. PC can hit up to 60fps 1080, but I think they are aiming for parity with PS4"

"Both hit 30fps easy. I think Xbox One suffers a few dips from 60fps. PS4 is pretty smooth. Definitive version"

I hope the Xbox owners are happy that that Microsoft has succeed in holding the industry back with weaker hardware.

Thanks A lot.

They say "up to 60fps" most likely because they will put in a fps cap and top it out at 60fps.

Yes, you read that right. On the PC they cap off your max fps sometimes. Such an odd problem to have, huh?

Thing about the PC community is graphics cards have branches. Low cheap tier lands at low resolution. High tier lands at next wave high resolution.

"PC can hit up to 60fps 1080, but I think they are aiming for parity with PS4"
PC can actually do alot more than that, but if FPS is capped then it will be rock solid and stable for many resolutions. Average PC resolution likely is 1400, 1600 or so. 1200, 1080, 900, 720 are all acceptable as well. 2160 is the first set for 4K. Expensive as heck, but few do try to game at that resolution now as well.

My PC runs 768x1280 or something to that sort most of the time for my games. Not much higher than 720.

"If this generation doesnt go PC>PS4>Xbone>Wii U for everything I'll eat my hat.

(off topic)
Open wide, because it won't.

It's not even going that way in the 360/PS3 era.

Like I said earlier, it's all about the cash flow.

You never got a game that was competitive with Crysis, even the following two Crysis games, although Crysis started and continued on the PC; If the PC's flagship game made concessions to jump through the console hoops, and the tech is not as close now (but kinda close), how much more will developers want to jump through the PS4/xbone's hoops just to get their hands on all of that cash when, if nvidia will be essentially alien in terms of graphical techniques compared to consoles, will make the console/PC differences even more pronounced?

Look at Rage from id:

Because of the 360, they took out one of their races and prevented that game from being open world. Not just the PS3 version, but also the PC version although BOTH of the other versions could be open world.

Look at Final Fantasy 13 from Square-Enix:

Final Fantasy 13 was supposed to be somewhat open world as well, but because of space issues we got a super-linear game and things were cut not to support the PS3 or PC, but to support the 360. The fact that the video was horrible on the 360 was due strictly because of the face that they and Microsoft wanted to have the game on one disc.

Look at Grand Theift Auto IV:

Compared to San Andreas, Grand Theft Auto IV was technologically inferior in terms of size and activities you could to in the game due to their lack of optimization techniques for consoles in general, but the blu-ray could have tipped the scales in favor of a larger city; but because that option wasn't available for the 360, the city was smaller than San Andreas.

Konami pushed hard against Kojima to make MGS4 multiplatform, although Kojima made it apparent in various cutscenes and plot devices (the PS3 controller, for example) that he wanted that to remain off of PCs and the 360 and on the PS3. I don't know if Ground zeroes is multiplatform because of that past pressure, but here we are.

All of these games could have had a larger map, better sequels, and an overall push in technological features on the PC, but none of them did that wasn't apparently easier to do for them as a port, which is better graphics.

(on topic)

Once again, if the xbone is supposed to have such advantages, it shouldn't be this hard to point them out; and as of yet, there's not one game anyone can point to to show them.

on the PS3, you could see the cell processor's advantages in their first games like Resistance, Motorstorm, and Warhawk; but unless I'm wrong, there's nothing yet to show any specific advantage the xbone has.

I bet you anything why it's running at 30fps is because Xbox One is holding them back. I'm sure PS4 can do 60fps. Isn't Assassins Creed doing 60fps? It's a huge open world game.

Do any of you care that this is a rumor. This game has always been focused on PS4. Makes sense that even if the RUMOR turns out true, that the X1 version may be behind the PS4 version. They have not shipped any version yet, so calm down.

doubt it... the chipsets are both made by AMD, so it should have somewhat similar architecture.

PC will always be the best version as i will be playing it at 1440p at 60fps hopefully with my gtx 680 SLI config. with the new consoles I can see that even if the ps4 is more powerful such as getting smooth 1080p 60fps and the xbox having many dips in the fps they will make it 30fps for both because its multi platform next gen console hardware and they cant make microsoft look bad.

only exclusive titles will really stand out for ps4 and I know that will happen easily. yes most likely ps4 multiplats will look better with shaders, textures and so on but the fps will always be the same on both consoles and microsoft really screwed up with the hardware which is already very outdated. ps4 less outdated but will perform better in the coming years.

Because you, an n4g dev have the final kits with all the specs and know the architecture of the systems perfectly to say so while Mark Cenry, the maker of ps4 is struggling to keep 30 fps in a revolutionary game Knack that will set a benchmark for devs like Crytek for next 10 years.
DigitalRaptor  +   866d ago
@ BallsEye

We've been told that 360 multiplats have been better than PS3 versions for years now. Why, when evidence points towards PS4 hardware being significantly better, easier to use with more mature dev tools, and a quicker turn around for development - all based on FACTUAL specs and devs coming out their information, why can people like yourself not handle it when it's this way around?

Secondly, Knack is what it is. No need to cover this again.

Meanwhile, Killzone: Shadow Fall -> 1080p/60fps in multiplayer. open-world style gameplay, expansive and detailed environments, tons of particle effects and impressive lighting, detailed character models.

inFamous: Second Son -> 1080p/60fps. open-world game, incredible animations, great detail, impressive particle effects, dynamic weather and lighting (day and night), environmental destruction, tight fluid gameplay and incredible visuals.

I was looking forward to 60fps on WD. Oh well! I guess I'll have to settle for 30fps.

But something bugs me about Ubisoft claim....

I starting to get the feeling that the reason why Ubisoft went with 30fps is because they don't want one platform to outshine the other platform. That way Ubisoft can make more money.

That excuse is so ridiculous...

Was there parity when multiplats all ran better on 360?

If the ps4 really is capable of running WD better then the x1, then it will.

If it cant, then it wont... Trying to.claim one platform is the reason it cant is pretty inaccurate

No, this situation is different from last GEN. there weren't a huge gap between the 360/ps3 in term of power.

But the x1/ps4/wii U are different as far as computation. In other words, there's a huge gap between platform this GEN.

So there nothing ridiculous about that. Its all about money.

Now here's a fact:

Watch Dogs will run at 30FPS on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, creative director Jonathan Morin has told

"Right now the frame rate we're focusing on [is] a steady 30[FPS]," said Morin speaking to us at Eurogamer Expo this afternoon. "There's always a balance, especially for open world, between the simulation and the rest.

Comparing my PC to PS4 specs I would say that most games should be able to run 1080p @ 30 fps locked without a problem and thats with poor to very little optimization. With that said looking at ps4 specs games should be able to run 40-45 fps easily @ 1080p if its more optimized and this is with all ultra PC settings used (textures, effects, shadows etc..) That is more than enough power to make games look and play good this gen. People act like there are only 2 settings either 30 for 60 fps but thats not really true and almost no PC gamer can play all games locked at 60 fps. Only like 5-10% of PC gamers can reach such settings 1080p @ 60 fps on all ultra settings. WatchDogs should look and play good if Ubi knows what they are doing the power is there.

If its negative about the xbone a rumor is a fact.
xKugo  +   867d ago
Lol, this comment is so true it's not even funny. The only rumor about XB1 not true was the down-clock of the system. Everything else was almost spot-on with what is true..
Jury  +   867d ago
The rumor about the secret gpu or CPU was also not true. Just desperate wishful thinking.

There was also a ridiculous rumor suggesting the controller would still use AA batteries. I'm sure that can't be true.

Who claimed it was a fact? People are only commenting on the content of the article... There just happens to be a lot of negative articles about the XB1. Must be a conspiracy...
xKugo  +   867d ago
Wow, that is like NAIL IN THE COFFIN. There is pretty much now no doubt. The PS4 is the better, definitive console this generation. Man, talk about a shit storm today for Xbox. Been riddled with bad news for it literally ALL DAY. Literally 0 good news articles for the console.

Rumor suggest that not only does PS4 run WD at 60fps smoothly, that developers are aiming for parity with the PC version. So 1080p/60fps vs probably 900p/30fps. That is a HUGE difference and it will be quite noticeable. It won't even require a comparison, all you'll have to do is look at the game. If the game runs at anything below 1080p/60fps on PS4 then it's been gimped. End of discussion. No game on PS4 only is below 1080p(and that's with all the graphical effects they wanted) so if multiplats aren't 1080p, then it's been gimped unless the game was designed for PC i.e BF4, Witcher 3, exc.

All I can say is wow....

How can PS4 be the definitive version when I'll playing it at better than 1080p on PC?
wtopez  +   867d ago
How dare you use common sense in here? Facts don't matter in a flame war.
Rageanitus  +   867d ago
no worries were gonna hear the same exact excuses EVERY generation every year from console only players

- there is not much difference... yet when compare between two consoles they crowd nitpicks the slightest performance hitches
- better to play in front of a couch (like you cannot connect a pc on a large projector or monitor)
- xbox live psn.. blah blah blah... like PC never had online multiplayer

the list can go on but it is amusing to see this arguments over and over again.
LetoAtreides82  +   867d ago
Definitive console version.
Destrania  +   867d ago
I can't believe people are still defending the XB1. It's sickening. I really REALLY hope devs don't gimp PS4 version of multi-plats, which could very well happen. Though, even if they are both running at the same frame-rate, obviously the PS4 version will naturally look better. Also, I know this is unrelated, but check this out. Tell me where the 'next-gen' is in there, because I would like to know. Seriously.

I can't believe ppl are still speculating as to how much more powerful the ps4 is.

It is going to be funny to see the true performance from the 2 next gen consoles when they actually come out.

All this talk that is is a supercharged machine is somewhat funny when we have not seen much in real time action. Did we not see Battlefield in below 1080 resoltuion? Honestly I am getting the ps4 vs the xbox but I am not kidding myself as to how much more "powerful" this machine is gonna be until I see it for the first 2 years.
Shinox  +   866d ago
The PS4 is indeed powerful , Stop lying to yourself b!tch
_LarZen_  +   867d ago
I was considering the PS4 version, but now I have to seriously consider it for a Steam console instead.

With a Steam Machine I can play a game like Watch Dogs at 60fps and 1080p on the TV. And with more eye candy.
DigitalRaptor  +   867d ago
You're right there, but the only problem is when the Steam Machines will hit retail. I'm already getting PS4 partly for multiplatform games I'm looking forward to being better than PS3 versions.
_LarZen_  +   867d ago
PS4 for the exclusive games, and the rest on a Steam Machine :)
TIER1xWOLFPACKx  +   867d ago
Just out of curiosity what are the specifications on the steam machine you might not be able to play watchdogs on it at those settings if they haven't said anything about the hardware, unless it's upgradable

EDIT: no need to answer that just looked it up myself. Your right depending on the hardware you have in your steam machine you will be able to hit 1080p 60fps.

All honesty though this sounds like a glorified PC with steam os optimised for tv gaming. I won't be getting one no need to upgrade my pc right now my 7950 3GB xfx ghost is chugging along nicely with an Intel i5-4670k and 8gb ram :D

Just get a Micro ATX mobo, with a decent videocard and CPU, it will be more powerful than the steam box and the other consoles.

Wow if this is happening already and the consoles arent even out yet Xbox Done is in BIG trouble.

Those disagrees lol. Console gamers are so bitter.
Jury  +   867d ago
Bitter? I really don't think most console players give a damn about PC. If I did, I'd get one.
Jaqen_Hghar  +   867d ago
"best" and "definitive" are 2 different things. 360 gets the definitive version of COD every year (until this one) because it had the most people playing and talking about it. If the most people buy Watch Dogs on PS4 then that's the definitive version. PC will obviously be able to run at 4k 120fps if one were to get the latest graphics cards but that has nothing to do with the masses getting their hands on it.
memots  +   867d ago
well if that is not confirmation i don't know what else they need.
4logpc  +   867d ago
If it can hit 60 fps on ps4...then why are they capping it at 30?????

Ummm .. Xbone limitation ?

Sorry but that wouldnt happen.

There have been times when games ran a different frame rates this generation.
Unlimax  +   865d ago

Don't tell me you ignored me .. i don't understand why you did that O_O !?

I don't get your response tbh , which side are you on ?

I'm a PS fan and my comment was hinted for Xbox fans if you don't know !

kids....i cant wait for the xbx 1 launch so all these childish and baseless comments from ignorant fbs will end.

If you think it's going to end I guess you must be new to N4G. Welcome.
Dee_Cazo  +   866d ago
Yeah, while Microsoft fanboys actually play their consoles and anticipate new hardware and games, Sony fanboys come to N4G and claim their dad can beat up your dad, instead of just playing their damn preference.
Jury  +   867d ago
I also can't wait for the xbox launch. I'll have my ps4 by then.
PsylentKiller  +   866d ago
I can't wait for the XB1 launch. I'll have my XB1. I really can't wait for the side by side comparisons cause then we will all know which system is better graphically as well as gameplay. If it's the XB1, then great for Xbox fans. If it's the PS4, then awesome for PS fans. Either way, we will know. We will have closure.
jcnba28  +   867d ago
Sony fanboys thinking they're getting the "definitive version" when we all know the best version will be on PC.
-MD-  +   867d ago
Anyone that disagrees is in denial.
Jaqen_Hghar  +   867d ago
A man still can't believe they can achieve this game on Xbox 1. For a system that came out in 2001 it's cranking out some amazing visuals!
MysticStrummer  +   867d ago
Yes and who knew MS would support that thing this long? Truly noteworthy.
