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.

Update:

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

The story is too old to be commented.

"Well know industry insider 'Shinobi602'" - He is not an industry insider. He is not even journalist, just some random NeoGAF user, who might be looking for some fame now.

sam_job954d ago

earlier predictions from his source were spot on.....

majiebeast954d ago

He has friends in the industry just like Thuway and Mort.

DarkLordMalik954d ago (Edited 954d ago )

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.

Oddly enough he was banned from GAF. I have no idea why or for how long but anyone who uses GAF knows next to your name it says junior member, member, admin. or banned. Two days ago it said banned.

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?

Eonjay953d 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...

k3rn3ll952d 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_bom953d ago (Edited 953d ago )

Well, I'm playing both games, Watch Dogs & The Witcher 3, in 1080p on the PC :)

Only play exclusives on consoles.

what a misleading title... says working on getting 1080p for "polish game" and currently at 900p

The_Infected954d ago

Working to get 1080p on PS4 i believe.

jackanderson1985954d ago

yep that'd be the second part of my comment... doesn't change the fact the title is misleading

rdgneoz3954d ago

"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."

Unspoken953d 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.

Hypocrites

gigoran953d ago

@Unspoken
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?

Unspoken952d 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!!

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.

Eonjay953d 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.

redwin953d ago

On xbone, is I better to have [email protected] than [email protected]?

BallsEye954d ago (Edited 954d ago )

Could be Dying Light as well...it is a polish game. Anyway, his insider sources were wrong with titanfall, so whatever.

DigitalRaptor954d 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?

BallsEye954d ago (Edited 954d ago )

@DigitalRaptor

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.

Skips954d ago (Edited 954d ago )

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.

I guess everyone on neogaf is an industry insider huh? Whether this is true or now, there seems to be alot of industry insiders all over the place now. More now that te next gen consoles are out than before.
