"Lead Watch Dogs developer Jonathan Morin comments on various aspects of the game."
Good to hear that the PS4 version is close to the PC one.
Not if you intended to buy it on pc.Just means they were lazy with the pc version and didnt throw in the bells and whistles.
lazy? 4 maybe 5 different console versions and a pc version, and you have the nerve to say lazy? they delayed the game for further optimizations on 5 different versions and you say lazy. smmfh its like you think games are easy to make...cross gen at that. if it was a port with lag problems yeah say lazy. if its a online only fps game with minimal game modes shotty frames no destruction or bullethole while being ugly in comparison to other this gen fps..say lazy. but this open world, multi gen, multi plat, sp and mp game is far from lazy. if on pc dont worry mod up and dont cry.
I have to agree with cell. They could have easily had jacked up graphics on PC then just scaled them back for the ps4. It's a lot like when devs say the xbox one version looks like the ps4 version of a game and the whole interwebz goes nutz. Except that the power difference is multiplied compared to the power gap between the one and ps4. Not what anyone who games on PC wants to hear. Hopefully it'll be modded to fix these problems.
why though? it will sell most on ps4...no? it's business...follow the money. they always follow the money. 'sides it will look better on pc anyway..ps4 will be close but not as good...whats the prob? cry when they make a ps4 game thats looking better than the pc version...man o man...just mod up...look at skyrim...i mean damn!
lazy lol? how about common sense to work on the most on the system that will sell the most lol. only a re re will put forth more money for a version that will sell the least out of all the versions. also only a hand full of pc gamers will be able to run it at elite levels... would be such a waste a time and money for the few pc elitist with systems of that caliber. dont be mad bc u spent alot of money on a pc when no one else did.
"they were lazy with the pc version and didnt throw in the bells and whistles." They don't bother trying to push graphics that only a small percentage of PC gamers will see. That's what doesn't make sense about the "consoles hold PCs back" argument. It's just a self entitled delusion that says "I upgraded my PC, therefore devs must cater to me". If more PC gamers tried to stay current with their hardware, suddenly consoles wouldn't be holding back PC gaming anymore.
like all multi plat games, if PS4 version is hard to tell from PC version it means the developer is not taking advantage of more powerful PCs
@ Kingthrash360 The point is too many games today especially in the next gen crossover are cashcows. If the focus was on just next gen and pc only I think the game would be closer to its original target render. Developers should be making games to push what they can do and people expectations. So yes I say they are lazy and gamers shouldn't have to put up with so called next games which are just last gen with a bit of gloss.
It wont be unless you gimp the PC or play on 5 year old system, this is PR. Do you think anyone at Ubi will say: 'er yeah we first revealed watchdogs on a pimped out PC and now we have scaled back the games detail becuase the consoles are just not that powerful'
Will there be an option to remove or censor sexual content and nudity in Watch Dogs? What a stupid question.
so that means xbone's version will be significantly inferior?
Inferior, yes: http://vr-zone.com/articles...
"This news has already inflamed yet another “resolutiongate” quarrel, with both PlayStation and Xbox One fans defending their respective consoles in light of these figures. The lower native resolutions for Xbox One fall in line as the console uses a graphical upscaler to hit 1080p resolution, and most gamers won’t really notice it during gameplay (this of course varies on a game-to-game basis), leaving some to conclude that the arguments are trivial matters." - VR-Zone.com
should have called it xbox 960)))
@ clark: Whether or not people won't notice a "difference", the difference is there and real. Thus, nothing negates what I posted. He wanted facts and got them.
In reference to the sexual content and nudity; does anyone regularly game with the kids or younger siblings around? Also, is there anyone here who would rather be able to censor nudity during their own playthrough?
1. No. 2. It really, really depends. Usually, I wouldn't feel like censoring it unless it was particularly distasteful content (like rape or sexual abuse). Though I can definitely see how it could be a nice gesture to the sensibilities of certain gamers for a developer to have that as an option.
Would I like to be able to? Yes, absolutely I would love to have the option. I would (likely) never use it, but more options are always welcome to me.
people are always asking him about PS4 and PC version differences on twitter, are they from the PS4 camp that want to hear PS4 version looks as good, or from PC camp that want to hear PC version looks better?
Obviously console only kids that expect a £350 med/low spec system to perform like some sort of supercomputer. I love my PS4 but I know how limited it is compared to my i7/gtx/16GB PC which did not cost £350, tech wise we get what we pay for.
While PCs are obviously faster than consoles, consoles offer optimization that will NEVER be possible on PC. Take a look at The Last of Us. Sure, the game seriously needs some AA, but apart from that the game looks beautiful. No PC running a 7800 GTX (equivalent to PS3) would ever be able to run The Last of Us or anything even close to it. With these new consoles being x86, it's much faster to optimize for them, and developers are getting much more out of them much quicker. Just because a game is identical on PS4 and PC doesn't mean that the PC version was in any way held back, nor does it mean the PC version would look better if a console version didn't exist. It really just shows you how much easier this new generation is to develop for than previous consoles.
you pc guys really are something. seem to always be compensating for something. I mean why even have 16 gb? newsflash no developer is maxing out or even trying to waste time maxing out their games on pc. its been like this forever so dont expect it to change. and just to be clear I have a good pc also.
I call BS on your saying you have a good PC, NYC, since you apparently find 16 gigs of RAM to be overcompensating. 16 gigs of RAM isn't meant to be sunk into a game. Games don't take advantage of RAM like that. The RAM is for having multiple programs at once, or for editing/rendering things or, hell, just for a rainy day in which something might want need a lot of RAM. You don't seem to know much about computers...
As a longtime(decade+) pc enthusiast, I completely agree...16gb ram is stupid if all you do is game. I got 8gb in '12 and havent even come close to tappi g that...and to be clear I run a LOT of programs while gaming. On average I have 3 pieces of monitoring software(temp, clock speeds, voltage etc), web browser (sometimes 2 different) with lots of tabs open, vlc, itunes, on top of the standard antivirus amd windows features, with a game running maxed out. Im not even close to tapping out. But I always see these ridiculous gaming system specs, 16gb ram, i7...for those that do more than gaming, absolutely. For a pure gaming machine? Waste of money. Dont jusy buy more for the sake of numbers, do some research if you dont know. Similar rated i7 and 16gb ram is not better than i5 and 8 gb, but adds plenty on the cost.
If anyone has seen the brand new trailer in action that they released last night. If anyone is in any doubt about the 'promise' Ubisoft made about a guarantee of no downgrade. It was yet again complete BS it's looking the worst it has done sine the Alisha trailer. I'm shocked at ubi's comments the other week after seeing this. It's a massive public slap to the face.
Are you talking about that taxi scene that looks like vice city?
I don't agree with you. It doesn't look quite as good as the first E3 2012 demo, but it looks better than last year's PS4 demos. It looks really great. I honestly don't know what you are watching.
The new Chicago trailer released about 2 days ago on Facebook. It looks no where near last years PS4 'gameplay' footage it looks like GTA 4 never mind 5.
Nice that they throw sex in the mix to widen the eye and make the young (and old men start fapping) but what Id like to hear is simple: "There will be no difference between what you saw on the E3 trailer and the final product" Wheres that statement at Ubi? Say this and lets move on, and put this issue to bed.
The girl in the picture. Is she the one with the awesome zeldass tattoo ?
No I'm pretty sure that was a real person this pic is a game person.
Oops yes you're right. I was too busy looking at the tattoo on her chest ;0
Who wants to turn that off? The game is for adults so deal with it...
Looks like the PC version got downgraded thanks to the last-gen PS4 version.
No consoles, no AAA titles for PC. There just isn't a big enough target market. You should be grateful that you get included at all.
Not a big enough market? Obviously you have never been on steam where at any given moment there are over 4 million people logged in.
Moron. The PC has more games reviewed on Metacritic etc than the console have had since the Xbox 360 and PS3. The PC version of Skyrim sold over 5 million on release. JUST THE PC VERSION. Your precious Infamous with it's small map and short story, will barely sell that. So don't come at us with your lack of PC knowledge, saying all we care about is graphics, when you're busy bitching to the Xbox One owners how much better the PS4's graphics are. You console scum are hypocrites.
@Dumb&Nasty2021 Not every game is that big a hit and nobody knows how a game will sell before it gets commissioned. If you are going to spend $100,000,000 on a game, you want to reach as many potential customers as possible. If the extra numbers provided by console gamers weren't there (up to 160 million potential PS/360's and 10,000,000 PS4/XB1's), If those numbers weren't there, how many developers would think twice or reduce their budgets accordingly? I have a PS4 and 4 PC's at the moment (including my £12,000 Video Workstation), I don't have a problem with PC's, I just don't have a problem with economics (as you seem to).
This game seems to just get worse news everyday trying to make a big deal of sexual content to take the heat off the massive downgrade.
Say NO to censorship in games !!!
I'm actually pretty excited for this game, the videos and pictures look fantastic..if this is what i'm getting first year, than.. I'm impressed. Cant wait to stalk some online players muhahahaha...
So, 1080p on PS4 for sure. And the Xbone?? 900p according to last rumors.
Blood and gore are Ok but heaven forbid we show female breast and vagina!
Or women taking it like a man.
Can't wait for this game, really interested to see if it stands up to its potential or just fades away.
