For you maybe.

I'll take lower resolution to play with the far superior controller, better online service, and better twitch streaming.

To ME, that is a no brainer.

I own both systems and it all depends on the online function. If this game has a killer online mode, then I'll buy it for XB1 because that is the pay service I have and I think it is superior to that of the PSN+. If it is like Assasssin's Creed 4 online mode, I'll pass on the online portion and get the PS4 version. It is nice that I can choose.

@unholy... Better twitch streaming? It just came, and it's only Twitch. PS4 can broadcast on PSN... More choice.

Better online... You mean it used to be. Service? PS+ beats it hands down.

Lower resolution? For $100 more?

Get real
PLASTICA-MAN  +   229d ago
I read in an old Examiner article, that the devs clearly stated that the PS4 version could run at 60 FPS, but they wanted to maintain parity between all consoles.

But seriously, neither the resolution nor the FPS is the problem now, I think the game has been downgraded compared to the E3 reveal and the first PS4 demos because of the lowest common denominator in this new gen. Just watch the latest trailer.

starchild  +   229d ago
FFS guys, all this fighting...and for what? Both versions pale in comparison to the PC version at 60fps with high quality anti-aliasing and whatever other advantages it will have.

The difference between 960P and 1080p is very small compared to the advantages the PC version has over both console versions.

You guys fight over basically nothing.
fr0sty  +   229d ago
There are other factors that remain to be seen. Which version has the most stable frame rate? If XO hits 960p (which isn't "barely" less than 1080p just because it's a number not far from 1080... you also have to count in the number of vertical rows of pixels in the image that are being left out) but keeps a better frame rate, it'd be the preferred version. However, if (as in the case of games like Ryse and Tomb Raider) it drops down into the teens, skip it.

And this whole argument over Xbox having the better online service is kinda dated. I'm not seeing any feature one has that the other doesn't at this point, though PS4 does give you more and better games IMO, even if they are only there for the duration of your subscription.

Those saying they'll get it on PC, sure. Enjoy that slightly better AA or 60fps on a machine that cost 3 times as much as a PS4. Just at min. spec, you're already looking at a min. of a $600-800 machine. Then you have the fact that drivers for the particular video card you chose don't work as well with this game as drivers for that other company's video card do, so you'll take a performance hit there until they bother to patch it, if they do.

For every advantage PC gaming has, it also has a disadvantage.

Arguing over any of it is dumb in the end. Just play your games. You liking it doesn't make it better, them not liking it doesn't make it worse.

Free "AAA Blockbuster" PS4 games on PS+ so far:

Outlast (year old budget steam game)
Don't Starve (year old budget steam game)
Contrast (newish budget steam game poorly reviewed)
Dead Nation Apocalypse Edition (port of old PS3 DL budget game)
Resogun (at least it's both good, and new! Kind of budget/arcadey though.)

Yup. No hyperbole at all in there.

Oh wait, you wanted older PS3 and Vita games to somehow count when assessing an online service for PS4? Well, if you have Flower, Flow and Soundshapes you will get a PS4 version as part of the cross buy program I guess. )

This is true, a no brainer would be to buy this on the best platform possible: PC.

I keep hearing how powerful the PS4 is and how it is the superior gaming system to have but it can't maintain steady frame rate at native resolution. What happened to this console generation?

PC>PS4 forever and that will never ever change, no matter what any fanboy says. Facts are facts and the PC will always be better.

So glad I didn't waste $400 on a crap console and put that money into my PC.

The downgrade isn't what people think. That gif everyone keeps reposting is one small section of the video. Here is what people are crowing about:

http://i.minus.com/iboqqHgy...

That is one small piece lasting a few seconds. And the lighting looks weird because the bridge is being selected and is being hacked. Look at the rest of the night run:

http://i.minus.com/ibtAnGuw...

And if you notice those are two different cars - look at the tail lights. They may actually be from two different builds - last gen vs current gen. The video jumps around a lot like it was pieced together. Either way, I am getting it for the PS4.

And look at other parts of the video: http://a.pomf.se/aoinlg.gif

http://a.pomf.se/unmccn.gif

http://i.minus.com/iAHxbvGb...

And joystiq's impressions confirmed on PS4 were quite positive: http://www.joystiq.com/2014...

And Arabicgamer remarked how the PS4 looked: http://www.thearabgamer.com... saying, " This game is absolutely stunning across the board with HD textures and beautifully rendered animations. For next gen systems, including PC’s, each rain drop will be an individual particular. This can be seen more clearly when using the focus mode or slow down feature."

@Koston while you are indeed right that the Twitch is an opinion I think that he's got a more then strong case on this one as for controller... I prefer my XB1 controller over my DS4 and as soon as a real DS4 controller comes out in the same make as a Xbox controller I'll quickly replace my current DS4. Also the XB1 does have better multi tasking... that is a FACT. It can run any application and a game at the same time. The PS4 does not boast this ability.

'It can run any application and a game at the same time. The PS4 does not boast this ability.'

Yes it does. All you have to do is open an Application and hit the PS button, then open a game. Bam you have two things open at once.

I've even had 2 applications and a game running at the same time before. Have not stress tested any further yet though.

I have to wonder something ,but from the latest footage its more than obvious that the game has been downgrade in the graphics departemant!I dont know from what platform this last trailer is taken off but the graphics have taken a downgrade when compared with what they shown months ago has the PS4 VERSION!I hope that this 30fps are steady lock and not 30 fps with dips on new gen systems,especially seeing that the overall graphics,effects and etc.. have been downgraded.And frankly regarding resolutions and framerates better a full lock 30fps at 960p that 1080p with 30fps with dips below that.I guess im paying to see what will be the more stable of the next generation console versions.

No more greatness...how quick we noticed the PS4 just could not keep up in the high end anymore.

Frame rate took the biggest hit along with some lighting, texture, and shadow detail. 30fps it is then. No more buttery smooth, more like coarse grits.

Funny how the Xbox is improving over time and the PS4 is losing its potential over time.

Couldn't they just lower the resolution on PS4 to make it run at 60FPS? I mean, on the Xbox One I understand because draw distances might be affected if it goes below something like 900p, kind of what happened with Battlefield 4, but from 900p to 1080p there's not really THAT much of a difference, what makes a true difference in action games is the bump in frame rate to 60FPS... I'll take that any day over 1080p.
tee_bag242  +   229d ago
Exactly. 30 FPS is criminal.
ITPython  +   229d ago
960p on XB1 and 1080p on PS4, with both running at 30fps? No way the PS4 can only do 30fps when the resolution of both consoles is that close.

Seems to me MS was able to buy partial parity on this game, and if I find out that this is the case, I am most definitely not going to buy this game new so that the publisher/devs/whoever don't see a dime of my money.

I think we can safely assume that this is in fact a parity thing, unless we find out that the XB1 version is gimped in other ways, like AA, texture-res and other things. But if both games have the same specs, except resolution, then we will know 100% that the PS4 version was gimped.

It sickens me to think that this parity BS is probably going to get worse as the generation continues. MS wants people to think that the tiny improvements via an updated SDK, or otherwise, will somehow make their console super powerful... when in fact it only looks that way because the PS4 versions are being intentionally gimped due to MS throwing tons of money at the right people.

This is why MS needs to GTFO. It's one thing if they release a sub-par console and people purchase the console knowing that fact, but it's another to ruin the experience for people who own the more powerful console by paying for parity.
BakPAin  +   229d ago
Dude you suck!! So its 1080p/30fps because MS paid Ubisoft. Seems to me thats all they could get out the PS4 at that resolution. You have the better version out of both and your still mad. I notice fanboys always say dumb shit to start a wars. No different than what you just did!
Sevir  +   229d ago
These are first gen next gen titles that are tailored to scale per platform, since it's a cross gen release it speaks wonders that this is what they got with only a year of development on these platforms who's specs became final late August 2013... Give it a rest! The delay benefited the game! MGS5 is open world and it's 1080p at 60fps on PS4 with realtime dynamic weather,global Illumination dynamic lighting, smoother particle effects and time.

The PS4 is capable, time with the machine and proper optimizations will bring out the best...

None the less, it's good Ubisoft came out and said it and I'm glad the devs aren't buying into platform parity, they've taken the tools and have made each machine sing to there most stable performance!

@Lakerman, Dell makes great monitors too. Your right, it won't be long, they will get better and cheaper. I'm not worried about 4k myself, the next monitor I'm buying is a 1440p G-sync when they come out. No more worry about refresh rate as that will change with what ever is being displayed.

Most PC gamers don't have high end rigs, they have low or mid rigs, and even a high end rig is shaky running games in 4k resolutions, and generally require two high end cards in SLI / Xfire or as you said a 7990 or 690. So yeah it can be expensive to most consumers.

Then having to buy the monitor as well. Most of the people on here are likely teenagers / college aged, and your average teenager or college student doesn't have $1000+ to spend on gaming in 4k.

@Lakerman

You'll probably be better off waiting for another 2 - 3 years. Larger 4k G-sync monitors should definitely be out by then and priced reasonably, and NVIDA Volta or the refresh should be out as well, which is rumored to be the first true 4k single GPU allowing you to max out the majority of 4k games on a single graphics card, so SIL two of those, and you should be good for a looooooooooooooooooooong time :D
webeblazing  +   229d ago
seem thats all people can do to downplay it, is say the price for the gfx card and that they cant afford it. instead of embracing things that always come first to a platform they downplay, then praise it once its on their console.

I'd cap it at 60 fps. I hate fluctuating framerates (e.g.: dropping from 100 to 60 is destroying my immersion)

If your system is capable you could cap it at 120 fps (don't know how taxing Watch Dogs will be)
Letros  +   229d ago
@TheGrimReasper

No need to cap FPS with G-sync.
starchild  +   229d ago
Yeah, without G-sync you will get stutter at any framerate that isn't a factor of your refresh rate (i.e. 30fps, 60fps, 120fps). But with G-sync framerates between 60fps and 120fps can be enjoyed without stutter/judder.

I'll definitely be getting a G-sync monitor later this year or early next.
Corpser  +   229d ago
Jealous of people that can play this in 4k, but I will too eventually
FlyingFoxy  +   229d ago
4k is a waste of time, you'd be upgrading every 2 years and need 2 cards minimum to get good fps.

1080p 60/120hz and a single high end card for me.

Theres a new 1440p 120hz sceen coming soon which is kinda affordable, has 120hz and g-sync. Rather get that than 4k, at least with 120hz there's no downgrade in visuals if you can't hit 120fps, while 1080p or 1440p would look like crap on a 4k screen. LCD's are good if you stick to their native res. But they are still a step back compared to CRT since you always gotta stick to native res to maintain a HQ image.

4k would force you to stay at that res, so if you get crap fps you are stuck with it, or make the image look like ass by going below native res. No thanks.

I agree, flying foxy, CRT monitors are the way to go if you're a serious gamer. unfortunately I had to get rid of my old Viewsonic CRT due to space constraints, but I always enjoyed it's fast response time and various native resolutions. The only real downsides are size, weight and limits on maximum resolution.

Actually, his reason is exactly why I've moved to consoles as well. I work from home and I need to get away from my desk as often as possible or I end up just working all day long. Moving things around helped. Heck, even just putting a console on my desk and connecting it to another monitor helped.

It's not really a sour grape excuse so much as trying to prevent a lifestyle of work work work. Change of environment helps one's attitude a lot sometimes.

Anyway, that's just me. And I still game on PC and console about 50/50. I still haven't gotten over my habit of working as I start a PC game and end up keeping it paused 75% of the time while I do work. So, not working well on my whole thing, but that's still the goal. Stop working too much.

@cgoodno

You should build an office PC, and a gaming PC away from your office. I work from home too (although I'm usually traveling 90% of the time), and I have my "office PC" which has a bare minimal GPU in it just in case. And I also have my gaming PC which is in my entertainment room so I have to get up and leave to another room.

It works for me at least.
cgoodno  +   229d ago
My Office PC requires expensive components and is expensive enough as it is. There's also not another room for me. Our townhome gets hot so desktop PCs with gaming equipment go in the basement where my basement and our entertainment center are located. So, I'd be walking 10' to another gaming rig that my wife would kill me over since she doesn't want something like that next to our fireplace or the stand we use for our entertainment devices. I already get in trouble with all my gaming peripherals taking up storage space.

I'm happy with the consoles. I talk about technical comparisons between similar consoles, but I'm fine with quality games on last gen or current gen consoles. That and I tend to not buy most games until they hit $20 anyway.

That's really a weird resolution if it really is 960p. It has to be divisible by 9 if it runs in 16:9. It's probably 1712x963 but since 963p sounds even weirder they just said 960p.
Software_Lover  +   229d ago
My opinion, and guess, is that they are just trying to get the highest resolution they can get at a stable rate.

They could've just ran it at 900p, but they saw that they could push it higher. I don't understand why do that, but I'm not a developer.

It's because it gives you the best middle ground between graphics and performance. The better the resolutions the cleaner the image, and they want to get it as high as possible without affecting framerate / performance, and obviously that was it.

It seems weird but I'm glad they're doing it, because it means resolutions on the PS5 / XB? will be less of an issue as those console move between 1080p - 4k, so we'll have some games 1080p, some 2k, some 4k, some 3k, some 2.5k, some 3.5k, etc...

Maybe Ubisoft is using the Guerilla Games method of rendering?

Still a little at odds with this cause it looks no where as good as it did during e3 and that was the 'wow' factor that made a lot of people hyped for this game.

I'll have to see more to make a decision if this will be in the library.
I_am_Batman  +   229d ago
This has nothing to do with what GG did. 960p means 960 vertical pixels while with killzone SF it is 960 horizontal pixels in the rendering pipeline (wich still results in 1920 horizontal pixels in the output without upscaling).

960p will have to be upscalesd however it's pretty close to 1080p so it'll probably look almost identical unless you're lookin at both versions side by side on a large screen.

Also I'd like to point out that I was and still am hyped for this game because of it's hacking mechanics not because of the graphics. It's also natural that the hype level sinks when a game gets delayed especially when it was as hyped as Watch Dogs.

KZSF is 1080p native but Guerilla is using a different technique to achieve that. This one is 960p so not the same thing.Ofcourse this is no brainer that the game could have been downgraded for parity's sake since devs want their games to sell well on all platforms. Also Guerilla's method of achieving 1080p was taxing on the ps4 hardware ,which is impossible on Xbox One because of its much weaker GPU and ram
No_Limit  +   229d ago
@sammy777,

"KZSF is 1080p native but Guerilla is using a different technique to achieve that"

Did you just made that up? It is either 1080P or 1080i, there is no such thing as using a different technique to get 1080p for interlacing. LOL
Sevir  +   229d ago
960p is progressive, both lines are rendered at that same resolution! What GG did was render the vertical lines at 1080 and the horizontal lines at 960. The result is 1080i with overal picture which is then complimented by the Hardware upscaled present on the PS4...
960p = 1600 x 960. You're welcome
elliou_unto  +   229d ago
Sammy777 - you have no clue what you're talking about, as usual, so please stop repeating something that you don't comprehend. 1080P native means EACH frame is 1920x1080, and all at once, which is not the case. Killzone interlaces sideways for a hybrid resolution, that's more in line with "i" than "p". They couldn't get the game to run at 60fps and 1080P, and the visual degradation is very apparent, especially with fast motion.

Sevir - 960P is actually 1712x963, because that preserves the 16:9 layout, just like Titanfall's 792P was not 1280x792, but 1408x792.

elliou_unto  +   229d ago
If you have a 720P tv, then you would set the xbox to output 720P native and you would probably get better framerates too.

If you have a 1080P tv, then it can support any resolution by simply upscaling it to 1920x1080, which doesn't even matter because the xbox would upscale the signal first and output it at 1080P to the tv.

that was because of an unconventional hardware . PS3 was more powerful than Xbox 360 as revealed by games like Killzone and Uncharted but programming on it was a nightmare. Same can't be said for Xbox One and PS4 . PS4 and Xbx One are based of same PC architecture and PS4 is way more powerful than Xbox One. MGS/COD for instance run at 720p on Xbx one and 1080p on PS4. Almost all multiplats are either running at a higher rez on PS4 or like 2x the frames as in case of tomb raider with more visual effects

ofcourse 960p to 1080p would be noticeable. 1080p has like 25% more pixels

Exactly. A few comments have said that they downgraded because of the X1. EA didn't downgrade for BF4, Activision didn't downgrade for Ghosts and Ubisoft didn't downgrade for Assassins Creed but now they do it for Watch Dogs. I said it before these pixel counters and fanboys have ruined this gen. Developers and publishers will get away with almost anything as long as they keep the focus on resolution. No one is even remotely blaming Ubisoft for the downgrade or asking hard questions.

I really am not buying this but if it's true I'm terribly sorry. It must suck not being able to adapt to controllers so you can enjoy gaming.

Btw the Xbox controller has been getting smaller and smaller and the X1 controller is smaller than the 360 controller(not to mention the DS4 is now the same size as the 360 controller)... I'm just saying it must be getting harder and harder for you to play Xbox.

Exactly, I would switch between playing Lost Odyssey then back to something like Star Ocean on the PS3 and I couldn't feel a difference. All though now that I've used the DS4 I prefer it much more than the DS3. Don't like how big the 360 controller is, but still doesn't make much of a difference playing games for me.

Why not?

because if "Ubisoft have revealed during their Watch Dogs press conference" every other site would have picked it up and reported it

@loveofthegame

Lmao..was about to ask him the same question..kind of sounds insecure.

Ontopic: im glad they've finally announced the release dates and i believe both console versions will look really good but i will wait for reviews before making up my mind about purchasing it though. Ive got a friend who plays primarily on his souped up pc. I hope he gets the game cos i wouldnt mind seeing it running in 4k,actually this may be the first game ill be seeing at 4k res.

I think it's time to take bets on the next multiplat game that's going to be inferior on Xbone. Could make a nice game out of them.

You forgot to add the PS4 camera to bring it inline with Xbox One.

Cue come back saying its optional, which is true but its sold out everywhere which shows everyone wants it.

Okay you got me there but i got mine day 1 cause i knew it would be popular. so now its:
960p=$500
1080p=$460

See, for me...even if they were both MSRP $399 or $499 the one that has the better hardware still wins. But more money for less hardware is simply unacceptable.

You are not looking at it properly. The Xbox One is not a game console, it is an entertainment system.
It does a lot of different things, which is why it is expensive. The PS4 plays games but lacks the features, so it is cheaper.
The Xbox One was made to appeal to a broader market of people, while the PS4 was made to appeal to gamers.

You're not looking at this properly, if that's the case then sell the XB1 next to the Roku players. As a gamer all I want is a system that is stable and can play video games on not an all in one set top box to watch TV on.

Gamers are very simple people, give them what they want, make it reasonably priced, deliver the software and games and were happy. This is why you're seeing the PS4 killing it.

I understand Microsoft's approach with the XB1 but as you can see it is not working out well for them. I'm sorry but Sony nailed this next gen. console release this time around and it is well deserved. I tip my hat to them : )
nerdman67  +   228d ago
As do I, I support it all, especially after the PS3 launch.
Im not saying like the Xbox One, I am just saying that you need to understand its target

Pc for me😉
worldwidegaming  +   229d ago
now that i escaped the achievement/trophy addiction its PC all the way.
I would love exclusives though.
SPARTAN3  +   229d ago
So now the rez is out of the way how long will it take for you guys to shut up? and we can see if this game will even be good. Hope its more like ac2 instead of 1.

1440p 60fos for me. Cannot wait.
Pluggedcube  +   229d ago
I don't mind having 960p instead of 1080p, that'll be unnoticeable to me. If it had been 720p I would've been upset (even then I can barely notice the difference)
brich233  +   229d ago
The developers who been putting 720p games on Xbox one are lazy if they put the same game on ps4 at 1080p.
