During a livestream held this evening Watch_Dogs Creative Director Jonathan Morin mentioned that people don't need to "worry" about the graphics, and to read the previews released yesterday made on the PS4 version, since they're very positive.
"They’re at No Risk at All" Yep, sure. k
Guys, Ubisoft told me i shouldn't trust my eyes http://media3.giphy.com/med...
so Ubisoft wants us to swallow whatever the paid off media say and ignore our own judgment?! OK!
Horrible thought. What if The Division turns out the same way??
Considering 'The Division' is solely on next-gen platforms, I don't see what's happened to 'Watch Dogs' will be happening for it as well. Never know though...
I hope Ubisoft is not doing parity crap because of the Bone.
@Destrania: Next-gen platforms or not, the fact that they can mislead consumers one way doesn't mean they can be appeased for another.
All I can say is that Ubisoft has just pulled the biggest NO NO in the history of video game making. YAY! FRESH ROADKILL! How many youtube videos have been made over this new "issue?" (7.....)
"Don't worry about the graphics" Why do I get the feeling that we're not going to be seeing a whole lot more gameplay videos released officially by Ubisoft before the game comes out in May? ...and then big corporate sites like IGN and Gamespot telling us that "everything is OK!"
Fine. Then. Show. Us.
thats what i said, if the graphics sucked ass and were a big difference, journalist would have mentioned it in the previews ;) the game is fine.. these ppl have been working on it for a couple years hope they have a great launch. I'm sure its hard being a developer
With a game hyped that much and being of such a big scale I'm not sure how critical the media would be. Just look at all the 10/10 GTA 4 got that was pretty much the worst GTA made.
The worst GTA? According to who?
How so? I thought it was pretty good..
Oh come on guys GTAIV wasn't as good as GTA Vice City or San Andreas. Boring main character Lifeless, dull city No colour Depressing story That bloody phone Not much to do The fun had basically been sucked out of it. GTAV is what we should of gotten with GTAIV We were all blinded by hype
GTA 4 the one with Nico not last years GTA 5. GTA 5 is cool :) GTA 4 was depression and less fun.compared to any other GTA. When I get a GTA game I get it for what GTA stands for and that is crazy fun with lots of satire, a game that doesn't take itself to serious. GTA 4 with them trying to make it dark and gritty didn't meet the standards in these areas. As a GTA game it wasn't great and not on par with the other games in the series and doesn't contain what made the other games so great.
With just Niko's cousin calling my phone, gave it an automatic low score! Haha
Don't you find it strange that non of the preview articles praised how the game looks and runs? Whenever a new gta game has been previewed behind closed doors they've mentioned how it looked and ran but not with this! Why leave out the things that they know people are going to want to know 1st?
Uh are you crazy? Lots of the previews talked about how good the game looks.
@starchild And previous videos of the game made it look alive... http://cdn.dualshockers.com... There are like 7 people total in that picture. It's a ghost town and that looks good? The PS4 walk through in the fall made a lot more people wondering around. MP will be a pain if you're suppose to blend in with all "7" people around you as you hunt your target...
You trust people's opinions above your own eyes?
"if the graphics sucked ass and were a big difference, journalist would have mentioned it in the previews" Not necessarily true at all. I don't know how many games got glowing previews last gen, only to get mediocre or bad reviews from the same people once the game released.
Battlefield 4's launch problems come to mind.
You know they are given access to previews on Ubisofts terms right? If Ubi don't want them to mention something, they cant.
He dodged around the question in reality and didn't touch on the whole downgrade aspect..
Side stepping a great defensive tool indeed
He's probably hoping everyone forgets about that and buy the game anyway!
Looool I love how they are like "go read what the press are saying about the PS4 version", "Game is in debug,Q/A atm". So how about showing us new gameplay footage if you're so confident.

Want to see some proper gameplay, if the animations and contextual interactions are "next gen" (can I just say good?) then ok, I guess I can gloss over the fact it looks about as good as a high resolution GTA V.
Rockstar could really steal some of Watch dog's thunder/sales if they announce and show GTA V for PC and current gen.
rockstar is one of the few people that take a while to do PC ports and even then, they only do it if they know they'll get huge sales but they have said at the moment its not worth porting it yet.
I fully expect R* to announce something the week Watch Dogs is out. They announced GTAV the week Saints Row The Third came out.
When you consider that trailers are touched up (remember gta5's trailers?) the in game graphics are probably gonna be worse than yesterday's trailer!
ubisoft is lying
Doesn't matter what they say, haters have made up their minds and will bash the game all the way until midnight release when they go buy it.
going to wait for more gameplay that tells that THIS IS PS¤ version. the graphics looks ok, i will buy it if reviews are great.
What the hell is going on? Jack leaves for reasons unknown, Amy is ousted, Watch Dogs has crap graphics AFTER a 5 month delay! Where's the freakin GOOD news??
Wait bro .. u didn't even see anything yet lol God help us .. it will be a bad bad year for us
The good news will come on the front cover of OPM sometime this month.
Blah Blah Blah ... Cut the crap and answer the question !!
I hope their racing game THE CREW don't end up like this and TOM CLANCY'S THE DIVISION.
I don't see any potential for the crew. I don't see why there is a hype for it , the gameplay is soooooooo slow , hope you guys don't get disappointed , i'm sure that i won't lol . However, The division is the real deal :) .
Until it gets downgraded to run on the PS4/xBone. What they showed at E3 was well beyond the reach of sub 2 teraflop machines.... A game like the division would peg the titan.
Ok they just said that they still have wind simulation. It will still affect Aidens clothes, smoke and the trees. Very good news I think. Didn't see any of that in the recent gameplays and I thought they removed it.
Exactly. So quite possibly the build that was shown was just a rough draft of something. Maybe to show more of the ai and physics than actual gameplay.
Yes it is cause now I don't think I'll be buying it
"Ubi what happened to the graphics?" "Don't worry about the graphics" Yes, I will worry. What you showed at E3 was a misinterpretation of the game. Don't tell me not to worry.
is that true ok then, in my opinion I think Watch Dogs has some high Reduced of the level of graphics and this is very obvious so I will cancel my pre order and wait.what killing me is the developers those guys give us all this amazing,stunning demos from graphics,physics and lighting which apparently PC version which is sucks..
Graphics are major gimped from 2012. No doubt the 2012 build was pure PR bullarse.
gamespot have a 1min video of them playing Watch Dogs on the pd4 (confirmed on their site) and the trailer actually looks better than the gameplay graphics http://www.youtube.com/watc...
that footage looked bad as well :(
Agreed. It still looks 'fun,' but nowhere near as impressive as it looked early on. This looks on par with TLOU or gta5... Which is okay enough but last gen. It should look as they advertised.
Holy crap! That looks terrible! Wtf?!
ehhh...i doubt I will buy this anymore. With this kind of question dodgin and just flat out lying, there must be something really going wrong.
I need confirmation that the "Story Trailer" was on last gen consoles, otherwise this is only going to be a purchase after the DF analysis and other reviews come in with positive results.
That seems to be the case atm. That, as well as the Gamestop preview (more footage than the Story Trailer, linked 2comments above), is all supposedly PS4 footage
Ubisoft's follow up statement, 'eeeey, relax, guy! Look over there'
What is with them and these screenshots, i really couldnt care less about the screenshots. Show us some more recent game play if you want to reassure us
I had such high hopes.
"Graphic not at risk at all"?? WE'LL be the judge $$$$ of that!!!!!
Wow, please, developers listen: If making good next-gen original games is such a chore for you, then at least release great old-gen games in HD remasters like Mass Effect Trilogy, GTAs, Red Dead, etc. !!!!! Then we can wait while you get your act together!
Dont worry about the graphics guys just give us your money when the game releases, buy the dlc, ohh and preorder the game for some bonus content.
They're probably hard at work gimping up some gameplay footage as we speak!!
look at all the graphic whores
Uhh, the game recieved a major visual downgrade from the 15 minute PS4 demo in September, let alone the amazing E3 2012 reveal. This game was touted as a true next gen title for the last two years and now they downgraded the graphics to that of a PS3 quality game? I'm sorry, if I had this preordered on PS4 after watching that E3 trailer I would be rightfully angry PC it is.
i love how all you graphics whores are crying about the graphics but ignore gameplay
HAHA unbelievable, tonight's Ubisoft Watch_Dogs Q&A live Twitch stream didn't go to plan & they ignored questions about the graphical downgrade & were bombarded with angry customers asking questions so have now removed the video entirely. That should settle it to everyone. Cancel your pre-orders!
Personally, I think the game looks good graphically and I can't wait to play it. However, that's not the point, and I understand the reaction. People feel lied to/disappointed. Ubisoft needs to think about that. They will lose some sales over this, which is a shame, because the game looks like it will be really good. Hell, the whole industry needs to think about that. Ubisoft are not even close to the worst. We just don't want to be promised one thing and delivered another.
Its telling...many are rightfully upset. Meanwhile, ubi drops a 8plyr co-op and no one bats can eye. I recall them saying only 1 other plyr was going to happen before yesterday newest reveal. Thats big! And that deserves recognition. But I am 100% onboard concerning graphics.
