Watch Dogs & The Witcher 3: Resolutions On Xbox One vs PS4 Leaked: "900p vs 1080p & 720p vs 900p"

"Hacking Game" terms clearly point towards Ubisoft's upcoming action/adventure title, Watch Dogs, and that Polish Game definitely refers to "The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt" from CD Project RED. (PS4, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Watch Dogs, Xbox One)

Update The PS4 version of The Witcher 3 apparently is 900p currently and are the developers working towards trying to hit 1080p.

Is this rumor true? Rumor votes 166

I am not denying this rumor, contrary to what people might be thinking with my comment. I just hate to see this trend of calling everyone an 'industry insider', especially for someone who has no such prior track record. At least Thuway, DemonNite and Famousmortimer have a good track record in this case, not shinobi. It doesn't really make this rumor false, since it is plausible enough and we already heard about Thief/Watchdog res from Thuway.

I'm curious as to how within the past 3 days we have gotten all these leaked resolutions of all these games. All of which are under NDA and some of which don't even have release dates. Are we counting weekly builds now for you resolution nuts? Or are we just trying to downplay a successful weekend for a certain competitor?
Eonjay  +   602d ago
I think the devs are leaking them so they don't have to say it directly. Only confirming. Only a boss like Kojima has the balls to comes out and be the one to let folks know whats up with his title. I respect that cause I'm tired of all this info through leaks...
k3rn3ll  +   601d ago
Yea but why would they hurt their own salss like that tho? If I was them I wouldn't tell potential customers on one console that theirr version is inferior. I mean, customers don't want to hear that especially if they can't buy a ps4 to go with the xbox one they already paid for. I think it'll cause some people not to buy the game at all
come_bom  +   602d ago
Well, I'm playing both games, Watch Dogs & The Witcher 3, in 1080p on the PC :)

"Working to keep"

If you look at his other tweets, he says it is running at 1080 but it depends if they want to run it at 900 for "more pretties." So if he's telling the truth, it is and can run at 1080p.

"Devs will sacrifice resolution for the pretties they want on screen." / "I feel confident they can keep 1080p."
Unspoken  +   602d ago
Struggling to get 1080p working.

When did 900p become ok with Sony fans? Anything less than 1080p or bust....no? Buttery smooth 60fps...am I right?

Its ok when their console of choice sucks because the GPU in the PS4 is last generation hardware and can't keep up with current gen graphics.

Excuses, well the game type doesnt need 60 fps...or well they could do 1080p but they couldn't turn up all the effects...get your own excuses, those are for the One.

gigoran  +   602d ago
Ahhh... The only hypocrit I see here is the xbone fanboy that is constantly complaining that the resolution of the game isn't important but is now saying Sony is below par for not being able to achieve it. So which is it? Resolution doesn't matter and you think what Sony are shooting for here is great, or you think that resolution isn't good enough for next gen and agree that every xbone game is terrible?
Unspoken  +   601d ago
PS4 applauded for 1080p and 60fps, Xbox ridiculed for for 900p/720p and 30 fps.

Now that newer engines are being used, the PS4 can't handle doing 1080p or 60 fps, and it being this early in the game spells disaster for the PS4 to maintain that standard without compromising graphic fidelity. Pundits have no where to go without losing face and are grasping for any excuse to defend the standard they themselves proclaimed and used against the One. The irony is incredible.

The Xbox is in the same boat with even less power. Just as on the PS4, though, it can still have fun games to play no matter the graphics, which is my personal opinion. But satire is such a great way to show the ridiculous nature of the Sony fanboy when they claim graphics makes them superior. All the while PC has been reigning king in this domain since the beginning of time, able to match any standard as long as you have the funds to play. The rationale used is retaliation for the previous gen attacks. You didn't enjoy the games you played on the PS3?

If graphics were all that mattered then a cheap gaming machine would be the go to gaming device. It's not though. The very reason consoles exist are why one chooses either the PS4 or the One: Games.

Let gamers enjoy their games and put these articles to rest so we can examine actual gameplay. Having great graphics adds to the immersion within a game, but a horrible game with good graphics is still a horrible game, ie Crysis 3.

Now back to Titanfall, woot!!
Deividas  +   603d ago
I own a PS4 and even I had to read the article to make sure because I was struggling to believe that the Witcher 3 would be 1080p on it...

But 900p seems reasonable enough, if they can get it to 1080p, awesome, if not...still far better than 720p so ill take it.
Eonjay  +   602d ago
Yes, 900P for Witcher on PS4 is good.
I also think 900P for Watch Dogs on Xbox is decent. 1080p is obviously a better.

Problem isn't the exclusives, The problem is that everything else that I want to play (want both of these titles) are running better on PS4.
redwin  +   602d ago

"so whatever"

Do you really think any of this is farfetched in the slightest, considering the problems Xbox One has had keeping up hardware wise, and seeing as Kojima, of all people, has come out and confirmed the intense disparity between the two consoles?
BallsEye  +   603d ago

There is still lot of problem with developing games on XO for sure but certainly it is not a weak machine. Ryse is still best looking game on any of the consoles and it is confirmed in IGN , GAMESPOT and tons of other reviews and by developers from different companies. If game like ryse which looks sometimes like a damn movie, can run fine on such hardware and then a game that looks last gen is struggling with 720p then there is certainly problem with dev tools for 3rd party etc. You simply can not deny what Ryse pulls off. Go play it, take it as a fact of what console is capable of. All we can do is wait till tools mature.

To remind you. Last gen when 90% of 3rd party games had advantage on XBOX 360 and then one exclusive on ps3 looked better than most games on 360, sony fans were saying it's lazy 3rd party devs and hard coding because HEY LOOK AT UNCHARTED it looks AWESOME! So now I say, HEY LOOK AT RYSE it LOOKS MINDBLOWING! Same thing going on now but table turned and if you disagree you are biggest hipocrite ever.

A POS linear game that runs in 900p and has MASSIVE framerate dips below 20fps is the best Xbox One has to offer in terms of power? lol

I'm willing to bet Ryse would've looked AND performed much better on PS4 though given how almost every multiplat does and the gap between exclusives. (Killzone SF > Ryse , DriveClub > Forza) etc.

Build yourself a nice PC, friend. Whether from scratch or finding a decent refurb on a deal site (Woot is good for that) and slapping in some better hardware, you'll get the most bang for your buck in terms of performance, versus a console.

I love my consoles dearly, but if you want power and performance, PC is the best route.
wtopez  +   603d ago
Bubble for well said.
frostypants  +   603d ago
Well said, but the problem there is you better be willing to shell out $900+. It would take at least $650 to build a PC that merely matches the PS4 specs/capabilities, and that's with bargain bin parts (crappy case/keyboard/controller/etc.) and before you pay for Windows (another $100). But yeah, if money is no object, go PC and get high-end everything.

Talidan  +   603d ago
Merely matches? No, $650-700 would get you well above, if going from scratch.
A quick toss-together without serious sacrifice on PCPartPicker gives me just about $700, WITH Windows license.

GTX 760
500GB 7200RPM HDD

PSU, case, optical drive, etc, all included. Cheap keyboard, $5, go to eBay for a gaming mouse and get someone's 6 month old Razer for $15-20.

To be comparable to PS4, you can do that in the $400-500 range.

Corners can be cut, refurbs can be found, go to eBay or forums and you can lower the total by 15-40%, if you're really trying to budget and don't mind some parts used.

One of the great things about PC gaming is you are not limited to what you can get in a Sony/Microsoft box at MSRP.

And here's frostypants with more of his anti-PC FUD.

No, frostypants, even my $800 PC build from 2 years beats the PS4 in games like Battlefield 4 and AC4. You can build a machine like that for around $600 today and the price-to-performance ratio is only going to improve over time.

PC IS the ONLY gaming platform that you can have 1080p+ and 60fps+ in EVERY game.

Games on PS4 are going to mostly be 1080p and 30fps, while games on the XB1 will mostly be 720p or 900p and 30fps.

So Far Everying reported on the XBO on performance of software has been spot on, all the way back from MAY last year t the XBO reveal, hell even the rumored stuff happening back in early 2013, late 2012 came out to be true through digging and reverse engineering when the console was released since MS played coy with their specs.

U know I think at this point is that if u had a choice between PS4 and X1 4 next gen gaming just get the PS4 as it's common sense as u would end up getting a better Version of the 3rd party games ps plus wich kills live in every way faster UI faster loading and better exclusives down the road. . With X1 I can only think of having it 4 exclusives only and then kenect and tv if u care about those things. I really think MS made a big mistake not make X1 a gaming console first then everything else 2nd and forcing kenect on people who don't want it.

Depends on your PC. My current PC can't match the PS4. I'd need to spend about the price of a PS4 on my PC just to hit parity, and that's assuming I don't upgrade anything beyond the motherboard/CPU/GPU.

Again, more nonsense from you.

A person can build a PC right now for only $200 more than a PS4 and have better graphics and performance than the PS4, as well as enjoy free online gaming and cheaper games.

The extra $200 you pay upfront is an excellent investment that saves you hundreds more over the course of the generation. Not to mention that the PC does a million things a console can't.
Trioptical  +   603d ago
So, will all of this have an unintended side effect of developers shooting lower for their games so they can have parity accross the two consoles? All of the games thus far that perform better on PS4 were being worked on before devs got a really good look at performance on XBOne's final dev equipment.

Put another (more inflamatory) way, are XBOX hardware limitations going to hold back game devs for another generation?
SDRA  +   603d ago
I'm pretty sure that CD Project RED (The Witcher 3 developer) praised the Xbox One a month or so ago and I believe them more than some random "insider". However, if this will be true, I'll buy the best console version, having both machines.

EDIT: In any case, I think that games are not only graphics and a lot of times I don't care about the best version, but the best gamepad to play with, 'cause I care about gameplay the most. Let's game, no matter what platform you're on!
