Watch_Dogs on PS4 Runs at 1080p, 60 FPS According to Sony's Pre-Order Page; No Mention on X1's Page

Ubisoft has kept the resolution and framerate combination of Watch_Dogs a secret until now, but on the pre-order page for the game on PlayStation's official site something quite interesting has appeared.

What? We don't need 60fps on a game like this, as long as it is solid 30fps I'm okay. Maybe just upgrade the visuals rather than more frames.

Webbyy726d ago

Yea, true but if the system can do a lock 60 fps ,,i am not complaining :-p

bring it on sony..

Abriael726d ago

Could still be a mistake, even if it'd be funny if they built a whole description boasting "the true watch_dogs experience" around a mistake.

pedrof93726d ago

I doubt about the 60 fps, but I believe in the 1080p.

Septic726d ago

Didn't we get confirmation that the X1 version will be running sub-1080p already?? I made my friend pay for my Nandos meal because of it.

Webbyy726d ago

@Abriael yea lol but i am sure true native 1080p on ps4 is 95% possible..we shall see :)

Abriael726d ago (Edited 726d ago )

I have almost no doubts about resolution, but framerate is iffy, especially considering how dense the world is.

Hell, I doubt my gaming PC can hold 60 steady in all situations.

starchild726d ago (Edited 726d ago )

It's a mistake. It will almost certainly be 1080p and 30fps.

Truefan...why are you still trolling in PS articles, i thought you said you were "done with that"?

You act like Sony have done it on purpose, it's probably just a mistake is all....or it could be true, but i doubt that. I doubt there's any misleading being done on purpose here, take your tin-foil hat off.

Just stay out of PS articles man, your bitterness shines through when you comment in them.

MorePowerOfGreen726d ago (Edited 726d ago )

No mention of the XB1 version's resolution on a Sony site? shocked LOL

Funny how people in here are saying "mistake" vs lie?

GarrusVakarian726d ago (Edited 726d ago )


"Funny how people in here are saying "mistake" vs lie?"

We don't know what it is...either way, why do you care? You will be getting in on the X1, right? So why exactly are you in here? I think people like you need to sit down and ask yourselves why you frequent PS articles so often. All you are doing is showing how much PS4/Sony's success upsets you.

You and Truefan, two of the biggest Xbox fanboys/trolls on this site, commenting on this article...about a game on a platform that isn't your platform of choice, about an aspect that doesn't even affect your platforms version of said game. WHY?


I knew it, I read in a previous article where Ubisoft said it is clearly possible to hit 60 FPS on PS4.

Bathyj726d ago

Ha. I remember you mentioning that Septic. You don't want to have to pay that chicken back.

Trufan, what does it matter if Sony "lies" to you? You don't believe anything they say anyway.

Army_of_Darkness726d ago


I'm impressed on how you can complain about 1080/60pfs(which is awesome if true) on a game like this?! LOL!

DoesUs726d ago

LOL our multi caoount troll MPOG is back, whinging after his ban 8)

LordMaim726d ago

They did it with Assassin's Creed IV, so I wouldn't be surprised if they achieved 60fps too.

BG11579726d ago

I will actually complain, as for this kind of game I would rather have better graphics and 30fps than a downgraded graphics and 60fps.

At this point I'll be waiting for the official specs for both PS4 and Bone to pass judgement.

Give_me_head_strong726d ago

The article never said it was a locked 60fps.

AliTheSnake1726d ago

60 FPS?
Now watch people complaining about the Graphics.

onyoursistersback726d ago

Mistakes.... Let me call out a huge one


Septic726d ago

There's a MASSIVE difference between 60fps and 30fps.

kevnb726d ago

If it's 1080p 60 fps I'm starting to become really interested in getting a ps4. Last gen performance really bothered me on consoles, this gen it looks like having a ps4 will solve that issue for me.

mkis007726d ago

Devs will make a game and the ps4 version will be inherently better...(or should be given the same amount of time) fewer obstacles in their may just be that 2 frame difference the 360 got all last generation or the higher rez/ better Antialiasing it got for most of the gen...but that is enough for me considering I bought a 360 just to play Red Dead Redemption with the best experience possible. Don't worry i filled out my collection with halo, gears, and crackdown.

I tend to think though, with 720-1080 being the difference in a few games thus far, that the ps4 and xbox one will have a relatively wider gap. Ps3 never saw this big a resolution difference and it was a much harder platform to work with than either of these. The frame rate in early games on the ps3 was hilariously bad as well. Not happening to ps4 this time around.

making a game 720p really should be giving the xbox one more of a frame-rate advantage in those game, but only a few actually do, and not even constantly.

Stapleface726d ago (Edited 726d ago )

Build a pc if your worried about consistent frame rate. I'm not sure if either of these consoles have a game that hold a solid 60fps. Some go that high, but every one I've seen has some serious dips down into the 30's sometimes. That's noticeable to most people, and if performance bothered you last gen, it just might this gen. The difference being a higher resolution on average so far. The ps4 is a great console, I don't want to knock it too hard. I have a lot of fun on mine. But they are very limited, but that's obvious, being a console and all. I won't sugar coat it like a lot of people will for you. Tell you it's perfect and you should buy one right away. IMO the pc option is the best option, but if you don't want to or know how to build a pc, a PS4 is a great gaming option.

esemce726d ago

This game will not be native 1080p and a solid 60fps on the PS4. It will be locked 30fps or fluctuating 30-60fps. Unless they gimp it to look like last gen graphics.

Magicite726d ago

60fps is really huge for open world game with so great visuals.
instead of buying better gpu, I might even buy PS4.

Salooh726d ago

Won't regret it. Better multiplatformes in pc will take at least one year. You can buy ps4 right now and hide money for next year. This way , you get the ps4 exclusives and next year you will get a noticeable upgrade for multiplatforms in pc. That's wiser in my point of view ^^ .

edqe726d ago

I would recommend to buy a better graphics card. 2k/4k and 60/120fps with better visuals on Watch Dogs and other games is simply much better experience.

Meltic726d ago

i really hope the fps is around 30-60 and great Graphics so they dont just Think of the PC Graphics. Then im pissed.

Dustinf11726d ago (Edited 726d ago )

I kind of doubt it will be 60fps. But it would amazing if it was. 60fps IS what makes current gen special.

RedDeadLB726d ago

I thought it was already confirmed to be 1080p 30fps..

boing1726d ago

Yeah. I think I read that somewhere too.

MEsoJD726d ago

I'd prefer 60fps as top priority on next gen systems. Once you play any game from 30fps to 60fps there's no going back.

KrisButtar726d ago (Edited 726d ago )

I would prefer that as well, then 1080. Even if the added effects like weather and lighting would suffer.

Golden30726d ago

i did play games from 60 to 30fps.. i dont care if 30 is done correctly, its a smooth experience too

dale_denton726d ago

lol yet u bash anything related to sony running 30fps..

porkChop726d ago

I don't know if this is true. But if it is that's a great thing. Open World games in 60fps is a great experience, very smooth. That alone would give Watch Dogs a very different feel from other Open World games on consoles.

system22726d ago

i agree, but at the same time, if it can do it without sacrifice, why not? it would be nice if they could also do motion blur at 60 fps but i've never seen that on a console.

thehitman1398726d ago

How come if a game can't do 60fps ppl are so so mad. But when a game does, you complain about it? You sure are a weird one.....

dwezel726d ago


It clearly says, "no mention on x1's PAGE." Make sure you actually read what your commenting on before making yourself look ignorant.

MYDEATH21726d ago

If it can make it look smooth without big dips I'm all for it

Eyesoftheraven726d ago

Few things are more infuriating in the modern world than hearing what Gamer XD said. *Counts to 10, Goes for a walk*

Ghost_Nappa726d ago

Christ people, 111 disagrees?

xander70769726d ago

I don't care if it's at 60 or 30, but it better not have screen tearing. If they're sacrificing Vsync just so they can brag about high Framerate, I'll flip out.

AuToFiRE726d ago (Edited 726d ago )

30 fps is waaaayyy too low. 60fps would be a minimum for a game like this. Higher framerates don't just give you smoother gameplay, it also acts as a buffer for high action areas. For instance, if a game is running at 30fps and you enter a huge shootout with hundreds of AI at the same time, your frame rate will start to get very very choppy as it drops below 15fps, while with 60fps if you enter the same scenario, your frames drop to 45fps, you won't see the choppiness that you would with 30fps to begin with.

xander70769726d ago

Few problems with what you're saying. Firstly, it could be easier to keep 30fps steady than 60fps steady. A scenario that might drop 60fps won't necessarily drop 30fps.

Another issue is that hopefully watchdogs is vsynced. If it is, then the next drop from 30fps is to 20fps, whereas the next drop from 60fps is all the way down to 30fps. Going from 30 to 20 is less jarring than going from 60 to 30.

quenomamen726d ago

Yea, we don't need games to be optimized to run at their full potential, way to keep gaming down. What's next ? we don't need HDTVs ? we should all go back to 24 inch color CRTs ?

I completely agree! Upgrade the visuals and don't worry so much about a game running at 60 frames! 30 seconds is just fine, I want crazy graphics man!

Locknuts726d ago

Depends on how the combat is implemented. A locked 60fps could be a real blessing if the game is combat-heavy.

solar726d ago

doubt it. Supercharged PC my ass.

hiredhelp726d ago (Edited 726d ago )

Trust me 60 Frames makes things feel more fluid.
Like running around shooting when lots going on having a stable frame rate really helps.

superbhoy726d ago

especially when things explode.... I love explosions

system22726d ago

for sure. i think its a little more important on fps games, and games like this I'm ok at 30 fps especially if they run motion blur because it makes it feel just a little bit less video game-ish.

AuToFiRE726d ago

Yes. Not only does 60fps make the game much more fluid and smooth, it also adds a buffer zone for high action areas.

ArbitorChief726d ago

The director of Watch Dogs said the game was 30 FPS just a few months ago:

superbhoy726d ago

yeah i think this is a mistake

Geoff900726d ago

It could be a mistake, we will just have to wait and see.

Abriael726d ago

he also said recently that they were still working on optimizing. Not that I don't lean towards a mistake myself, but that statement is outdated.

mkis007726d ago

Wow! That conversation was before the delay!

Few months to you is over half a year?

mkis007726d ago (Edited 726d ago )

Ya that would have been better to post don't you think? Still...the wording on the sony site is oddly specific. Wonder how it got there.

You don't like using outdated sources do you?

Meltic726d ago

yeah then. Then when people complained about graphic downgrade they meaby did higher the Graphics and down was the FPS...

amnalehu726d ago

He did not says it was at 30 FPS. He said, "RIGHT NOW the frame rate we're focusing on [is] a steady 30[FPS]."

Maybe something changeD or maybe they didn't want backlash from XB1. The Sony/Watch Dogs pre-order site is overtly explicit in it's description of the PS4 version of Watch Dogs: "Experience Watch Dogs in a way that only the PS4 can provide, at 60 Frames Per Second in 1080P." I hope the website is right!

angelsx726d ago (Edited 726d ago )

I will be very happy if that's true.But even on the demo you can see is 30fps.
