For those wondering, PC footage. Notice the PC at the bottom left of the video (also running on a single GPU).

monochromer1470d ago

Wow, now I regret preordering this on the efficient PS4! These marginal graphic differences are really worth all the trouble of PC gaming, and I never knew!


Psychotica1470d ago

Well if it was for only a single game it wouldn't be worth it but since it's for just about every PC vs console comparison there is then it might be worth it. Of course it's not just the visuals, it's also the performance, if it's laggy or not.

lets_go_gunners1470d ago 60+fps is marginally better than 30?

@lets_go_gunners It's marginal when we're talking PC vs Consoles but when it's PS4 vs X1 every little bit of difference counts. That's console fanboys logic!

badboy7761470d ago

PS4 has the advantage With DLC.

esemce1470d ago

Marginal ? 1440p @ 60fps with the possibility of 4k and mods etc vs <1080p 30fps and no mods.

Don't fool yourself, there is a reason some graphics cards cost more than PS4/Xbone.

Enjoy your downgraded, lower resolution games at less than 60 FPS then.

120hz says high.

SlapHappyJesus1470d ago

"marginal"; "rather evident".

What are words, anyway?

n4rc1470d ago

Blah... I have a new PC.. Built like a champ with a decent gfx card..

Yet I simply can't be bothered to play any game on it really.. Sad as it may be, achievements are the main reason for that.. Lol

Ignored them for years.. Just blew threw most games and got what I got.. Then I started caring as friends can kinda compete to get them all first or whatever..

So really.. I have a PC to game on.. And I know first hand how much better PC games can run.. Yet still do all my gaming on my xbox

duplissi1470d ago

Love the passive aggressive tone here, feel the need to justify your purchase? Just stop.

N4g_null1469d ago

Thanks monochrome now I have no reason to buy it for the ps4. Look at all the dlc coming to the pc with a possible 4k upgrade when I finally get my 4k tv. Possible mods and the ability to make mods is going to be fun. 64 gigs of ram is $300 pretty much i7 and your card of choice and you can get in on making gaming graphics too! Why ask for something when you can make it?

Actually this was confirmed to be running on a PS4 dev kit.

starchild1470d ago

Why do people care so much about what it was running on? The quality of the video is too low to notice any differences anyway. The PC, PS4 and Xbox One versions would all look basically the same in a low quality video like this.

1470d ago
extermin8or1470d ago

@BeathuberCH because the game hasn't gone gold yet... @starchild because of the PC only fags that were going on about "how much better it looked" in this video as it was pc footage when ofc n one can tell.

Jaambi1469d ago (Edited 1469d ago )

@BeathuberCH You do realize that DEVKIT's are used in the development of games right?

I'm so glad that i pre-ordered this for PC with the latest trailer showing of the magnificent graphics on it!
46 days left guys!

TRD4L1fe1470d ago

you say it as if there is a massive difference in graphics between systems.

The game is going to look beautiful, even on the WiiU

sander97021470d ago (Edited 1470d ago )

I never said it would look bad on the other machines I just prefer the PC version that's all! :)

JP13691470d ago

The visual difference is significant and it does it at twice the frame rate.

duplissi1470d ago

I'm glad he mentioned the console versions... oh wait....

Benjaminkno1470d ago

It's all about "GAMEPLAY"...

I'm inclined to believe the WiiU version will outshine all others.
They've got one of the best development teams in Europe. The're going to do it justice. I'm glad they're not competing with MarioKart 8. WiiU is going to have an even better year than the last.

christrules00411469d ago

If it's all about the gameplay wouldn't you want a higher frame rate then? How then will the Wii U version outshine the PC version?

Meltic1470d ago

Im going for ps4. I only have ge force gtx 680 , 8 gb ram and i5 320ghz. I want a good fps and not so laggy. And i Think ps4 is not that bad.

Xdone1470d ago (Edited 1470d ago )

"I only have ge force gtx 680 , 8 gb ram and i5 320ghz."

You've got an amazing rig mate =)

Meltic (below)

I certainly thinks so meltic :) that gtx 680 is a great card.

Meltic1470d ago

is it enough for high on WD on pc :O ?

Amiroo1470d ago

"is it enough for high on WD on pc ? "
more than enough. you can max the hell out of it with 4xTXAA and stuff or safer: 2xTXAA and 60fps on 1080p or even more. don't worry PS4's exclusive contents are also avaliable on pc too on day one. guess what ? it's 45$ on steam

Meltic1470d ago

Thanks for all replys. I want to try out the 4xTXAA and the HBAO. See how Beautiful it is. Yeah i will preorder it now on steam :):)

aliengmr1470d ago

$45 on Steam? Are you sure? Because it clearly says $59.99 usd. Do you mean euros?

Just explain the price, if you could.

extermin8or1470d ago

Ummm are you sure I'm 100% certain that watch dog' reccomended specs are higher than that.... CPU wise for sure... and recommended specs isn't usually even high/max....

Amiroo1469d ago

sorry, i meant 55.99$ yeah, now it jumps to 59.99$. i bought it at 55$

sometimes the recommended spect are just too much, but i'm sure he will be fine

a 680? and you're worried? try my hd 6670....

TheGreatAndPowerful1470d ago (Edited 1470d ago )

same... dual 6950s probably won't run this game any better either. :(

Psychotica1470d ago

I have a gtx 670 FTW, 16GB ram, i5 etc etc and I am getting it for my PC even though I have a PS4 as well.

trancefreak1470d ago (Edited 1470d ago )

Nice! I don't understand why some people complain when you own a nice PC RIG, and decide not to buy it for your console; We get ridiculed by making the statement of where the purchase goes.

A lot of people have nice PC's and consoles and it's about preference. I will buy on the PC if it is a better experience period. My GTX 680 is 2 years old and still thumping games.

extermin8or1470d ago

@trancfreak The question could be asked why someone with a good PC gets even more shit lobbed at them if they say they want to get a game on consoles instead. IT'S THEIR CHOICE. Personally I hope some of the people on this thread being dicks find the game unplayble when they get the game regardless of what they own it on, maybe find out a batch of the discs were keyed/downloads corrupted and it mysteriously only effected them....

christrules00411469d ago

The big benefit of getting on pc over the ps4 is when we do upgrade our rigs if we loved a game we couldn't max out we can go back and crank up the settings. I don't think many people will be running it in 4k this year.

N4g_null1469d ago

Extermin8tor.... no one is lobbing any thing at console gamers? The facts are the facts. It will run better on a good pc. Gamers have good pcs. The dlc and preformance will be better. Possible mods and more content. Can use any controller... yes even the wiiu if you like to hack for real. Some pretty old hardware could run this game actually. Isn't that what is in the xbone and ps4?

123pol1470d ago

add 8 gb of ram .. 10$ and overklock your CPU and youll be fine with over 30 fps.

aLiEnViSiToR1470d ago

lol you have no idea about PCs do you xD that is actually nice rig.

Stapleface1470d ago

Yesterday you had a "ge force gtx 700" lol, and an i7 3770.. And was asking if you could play it on that. Is this a second pc or are you just confused?

aLiEnViSiToR1470d ago

rofl you are right O_o

i think he just trollin' us or just has zero knowledge about PC components.

randomass1711470d ago

Like Phoenix Wright, point out the inconsistencies and it creates a string of new questioning. ;)

esemce1470d ago

Lol you are trolling right? a GTX680 destroys the PS4.
If you want to play at 30fps and medium graphics settings get the PS4 version.

You want to go higher get it on PC, and remember if you upgrade your PC in future you can then replay the game at even higher settings it's a no brainer.

No console version will look as good as this:

ILive1470d ago

How do u know its gonna be medium graphics settings? You say it like you've played both versions, right? You just make yourself sound foolish.

TheGrimReaper1470d ago

780M GTX, 8GB RAM, i7 4700HQ

Could add another 8GB RAM but I'll still get it on my PS4.

I don't know how well my rig will handle WD, haven't read enough about WD requirements (despite the min. 8GB RAM)

Thomaticus1470d ago

I really wish I hadn't clicked on that video. The PC Makes the PS4 version look like it's the PS3 version. I may need to build (or have someone else build) me a PC.

N4g_null1469d ago

Wow I may get this on steam now. Looking good. With nvidia backing them you know we are not looking at bull shots. I'm really tired of all the console bs going on also. All the lieing and money hatting. The bs specs pushing and the fanboy talk is really dragging down this hobbyists ability to respect fellow gamers. I'm sure the developers feel the same.

ONLY HAVE....dude a 680 is way more than enough. wtf are you even saying it like that for, i mean you have to joking to even talk like that.

zeldapkmn1470d ago

is a dual 750m sli with an i7-4700mq good enough?

wannabe gamer1469d ago (Edited 1469d ago )

yea... wait 750m sli? m as in mobile? i didnt know they did sli like that...

SlapHappyJesus1470d ago

That would mean we have, essentially, the same rig. All I have to say is that I am not worried about running Watchdogs extremely well.

duplissi1470d ago

wut? lulz. You will be able to play that just fine with your rig.

I don't know much about PC gaming but this is the rig I own. will this be good enough for Watch Dogs?
Processor 3.5 GHz Intel Core i7
Memory 8 GB 1600 MHz DDR3
Graphics NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780M 4096 MB

Edit: I think I might still get it for the PS4 though

randomass1711470d ago

Well, I can already tell you that that's better than my laptop lol. I think you'll be able to run the game, albeit at lower settings.
