‘No more compromises’ – Ubisoft Massive on making The Division for next gen hardware

EDGE: "We venture to Sweden’s Ubisoft Massive to get the inside story on the making of Tom Clancy’s The Division." (PC, PS4, Ryan Barnard, Tom Clancy’s The Division, Xbox One)

I hope the developers also don´t make compromises of parity for multiplats and exploit the strenghts of each hardware on this new gen
stevehyphen  +   295d ago
The more people that buy a PS4 relative to Xbox One, the better. At least in terms of solving this problem.

Microsoft may not budge on that policy of parity.

If a dev like Ubisoft starts threatening to cut the Xbox One's library, then Microsoft would have to act.

Obviously, Ubisoft is not going to do this unless PS4 has an overwhelming install base-at least enough to be profitable.

There's certainly no guarantees, either. It's a shady policy.

Funny how people automatically think they are talking about PS4 graphical power, but I hope they do take advantage of both systems strengths. With a MMO’esque shooter this means xbox’s online infrastructure should shine.

And if you actually read the article, they are referring to no compromises on next-gen systems because they now have the proper power to do what they want (proper power on both systems).

Lets hope so. We have to vote with our wallets. We have to let the developers know that we want the hardware to be utilized to its maximum potential. If one consoles can't do 60FPS but the other can, no compromise. Give people the experience that their respective hardware can handle.
FlameHawk  +   294d ago
Funny how people still don't know the PS4 is more powerful than the Xbox One, even with all the devs saying so.
fullymoated  +   294d ago
FlameHawk.. are any multiplat devs saying this? Can you provide a link please? I do believe the PS4 has more power, but what real life percentage is yet to be seen. If multiplat devs are going to be lazy and not use the extra power and the games look the same side by side, then what is the point? Intelligent responses/discussion/links are welcomed =)

I've been saying that forever sigfredod. cudoos.
Cable2kx  +   294d ago
I agree 100% don't short your fans. I can't wait for this game and whatever console it looks best on I will be buying the limted or collector editon for.

SN: Up and coming podcast we are looking for feedback. Please check us out and let us know what you think

and what are these compromises. im guessing we are talking about gfx
Xsilver  +   295d ago
i see one developer is taking next gen seriously.
BX81  +   294d ago
I think they all are. Some have different approaches on what will make the gamers happy and yield the most money. Since this game is on the shooter side I'm going to get it for the xbox one. I've always preferred the xbox controller to PS. I know they have an adapter, where you can use the 360 controller on the PS3 but only two people I know have a PS3. I tried to convince some of my friends to get both systems (since they had the money for both) but they just prefer the 360. Even though im getting the xbox one first, I tried to get them to seriously look into the PS4. I'm going to get them both. Last gen both systems had great looking exclusives, with the PS3 edging the 360(just my opinion) and I expect the same from this gen. Since the PS4 is supposed to be more powerful. I expect the same as last gen. Great games for both with the PS4 edging the one as far as graphics for the exclusives. Either way I get to enjoy both. Lol.

No more compromises? With a statement like that I guess Ps4 version should be the best Version available on consoles. We'll see about that.

Here we go again with the fanboy flame bait your throwing out there.

True_Samurai  +   295d ago
You're the type of fanboy that's the reason I choose x1. Only thing PS gamers care about are graphics

EXACTLY! My main reason for getting the XBO is that i refuse to play with these types of people. I have a family member that is exactly like that. Ohh and before people bring up stupid remarks like good luck playing with kids or the likes ill say this, SMART MATCHMAKING! Thanks to the Xbox Ones Smart Matchmaking i can choose who i want to play with online.

@PFFT
Yes because Xbox gamers drink tea with there pinkys out. Wake up there trolls on every console more on Xbox since they have more people on XBL.

@Samurai
Who cares what PS gamers care about obviously you do since that's the only reason stopping you from buying a console.

If that's the only arguments fanboys have this is ridiculous.
Palaven  +   294d ago
@Brix90
Since playing TLoU multiplayer I have received threatening messages and been insulted more on PSN than I have on XBL for 4+ years.

XBL has a way better community than PSN in my opinion and experience.

thats the true reason u choose X1? pathetic to not say more.
True_Samurai  +   294d ago
@ Dmitri I'd rather play in a more mature community than listen to a bunch of fangirls cry about which is more powerful. Now that is truly pathetic :p

@Brix that's all you got? 'You must care" never said I did or didnt care for you guys never have never will. Lmao

Why not? PS4 has more powerful hardware and the developer doesn't want to make compromises this time. We'll see how this actually plays out.
Hercules189  +   294d ago
Nowhere in the article did it say ps4 version is going to be way way better, so everyone needs to calm down about this stuff. The original xbox was way more than 50% powerful and majority of multiplats looked about the same if not a tiny bit better on xbox.
BigShotSmoov007  +   295d ago
How am I feeding into it? Explain that to me?
Tooly  +   295d ago
you could have kept it moving you didn't have to respond now you got people like me on your case. calling somebody a fanboy because he stated his opinion. He Read The article That's the conclusion He came To.You Calling him a fanboy That's Some What Of An Insult. Then the War begins. Thats how his bait set you up.
TRD4L1fe  +   294d ago
actually chrisx is a fanboy, a big one at that. it is why he only has one bubble lol
Cherchez La Ghost  +   294d ago
Fact is it's been too much talk, speculation, rumors flying around in the past couple of weeks. If one system has the horsepower that can run stable, let it shine to be. And I agree for the fact one should not let another hold up progress of optimization of a game to it's full potential.

Both systems are starting a new era and race in Next-Gen gaming. It's going to take a couple of years for Dev's to get into the swing of things to create some good looking HD games. I'm the type that if I hear or see something, I'll take it as a grain of salt until I see it with my own eyes. The new phrase N4G should use is "WE WILL SEE" when we get our hands on our consoles.
Regis  +   294d ago
I wish I wrote your comment it made me cry tears of joy.
ForgivenZombie  +   294d ago
This game looks awesome and I hope everything comes together like they plan. I can see myself playing this game a long time.
