Watch Dog Woes

Yesterday Ubisoft announced that Watch Dogs would be released on May 27th this year on all platforms except the Wii U (which may not even make it out in 2014). After the game was delayed last year, Ubisoft might have expected a little more excitement surrounding the semi-close release date. However, the internet struck back. (PC, PS3, PS4, Watch Dogs, Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Before the "Bullshot" claims come. I wonder if anyone, at all, that claims this "controversy" have actually read anything that Ubisoft said about 25 hours ago.

"Don't worry I played PC and then PS4 and PS4 isn't giving its place. Just read the articles, they all played on PS4."

All this is saying is that the PS4 version is on par with the PC version. That doesn't mean the PC version is terrible with terriblez graphicz!!

It means the PS4 version is amazing. Which is what we have known all along. PS4 is the best next gen console.

It stands up to the PC version very well.

How that came to mean the PC version is "gimped" or not as beautiful as it could be makes no sense. Especially in light of the beautiful graphical games that have already released on the PS4.

I don't understand why graphics are so important to Sony fans. If graphics were THAT important, you would be a PC gamer.

I mean really, people are bitching about an unfinished product.
Frankly, I'm more interested in the WiiU version, but, to each his own...

I'm more interested in the Wii U version too. The fact that it's so far off (if it even comes out at all) is really disappointing to me.

WTF does "giving its place" even mean???

I think he was referring to the fact that the PS4 version stands up well next to the PC version.

I think people saw that statement and thought: oh, the PC version must be downgraded.

But, what happened was an anonymous person put out a strange looking gif of game footage. There is no way of knowing where the footage came from, what the resolution of the gif is, or if it is alpha, beta, or game footage.

All the "controversy" comes from a youtube (compressed) video that is supposedly a downgrade from E3.

None of this has been confirmed.

Goodness, people really are mad about the graphics. I understand that it's a downgrade from E3, but it still can be a great game.

I'm personally not that concerned about the graphics. I'm much more worried about how repetitive the game will be.

e3 demos are ALWAYS downgraded.

This is a little nuts. 90% of games are downgraded from their initial showing. Why is this game under more scrutiny?

I understand ppl being upset by it, but why are they seemingly more upset than times past, with other downgraded games?

To me, Thief looks like a glorified late ps2 game and no one says a peep. Watchdogs gets downgraded and the sky is falling.
