Ubisoft community manager publishes a blog about the game's next gen features revealing the resolution for both next gen versions
So 900p on PS4 and 792p on Xbox One? If this ends up being true, at least there's good news. "It’s much more important to deliver an amazing next-gen experience than it is to push a few more pixels onto a screen" They are trying to make it a much dynamic and richer experience with a constant framerate. I know many people here wanted full native 1080p with 60fps but that isn't being realistic. Also, the game delay was to work on the hacking aspect making sure it was integrated in the game as much as possible.
Like I said, there could still be a patch that will make the game 1080p. Let's just wait and see. Though I may not be getting the game until I finish grand theft auto 5.
They could put Watch Dogs on Playstation Now 1080p/60fps with maximum settings.
They delayed it for 6 months. If they couldn't get it to 1080p in that 6 months it isn't looking all to likely for a patch
Yeah, well, I guess it's a good rental. I'd have to see myself how well this run first.
SonyPSNow- If that were the case, why didn't they? It's not like they didn't already have the higher resolution 1080p+ textures that are used in the PC version. This bizarre idea that developers are holding PS4 games back because of Xbone is absolute nonsense. These game studios are full of entrepreneuers who want to make money, and the chances of them using the policy of social justice to "level the playing field" so everyone gets the same experience regardless of the fact that some platforms are clearly more powerful... The idiot who believes in that regressive crap is no doubt the type who is against keeping score in kids sports and everyone gets a trophy because they don't believe in winners and losers, right and wrong, and all that matters is that you tried your best. LoL. What a joke. It's like that girl recently who moved out of her parents house because she wasn't allowed to have her scumbag boyfriend live there, then she goes and sues them to pay for her living expenses AND college education even though she was 18 and legally an adult. Thank god the judge wasn't appointed by Obama, because luckily it got thrown out.
But this doesn't make sense. Back in March, Ubisoft said this game was 1080p on PS4 and 960P on XBO, both at 30fps! http://n4g.com/news/1468750...
how does it not make sense? march was months ago. do you not understand how time works? or change?
Guess you missed all those articles about Watchdogs being downgraded...? Nothing says were making a last gen game like not being able to hit 1080p, now not hitting 60 fps I can understand, but not getting 1080p on PS4 that's just ridiculous This is what happens when you make your game for too many systems and then just start cutting corners to get it done. .____........___... .____||......||.......|___|| ||.........___||............ ||
I dare to say - they did not optimize it enough.
This was always my concern for this game, and really any game, that straddles both generations. For me it's not a deal breaker and I'm looking forward to playing the game, but there is no doubt given all we've seen thus far this gen for ps4 and xbone that compromises are made for games not designed for new gen consoles only. It gives me great pause for what The Division will be, although I'm hoping for better because that is focused on new gen only. We know the ps4 is fully capable of open world 1080p 30fps, as there are games available now at that resolution and games announced that will hit that, so I wonder what Ubisoft's problem is.
theres a resolution war going on between the microsoft guys and sony guys and when ubisoft announce watch dogs is 900p and 792p on xbox all of a sudden its all just about the actual gameplay in the conversation and resolution talk goes silent, pathetic really in 2014 900p is the greatness that awaits, this is only 2014 and 900p for this game what is next gen? lol just get a pc
If you plan on spending a lot more on your hardware, sure.
I really wish people would stop with the old "just get a pc" argument. My god. You guys want to be in every conversation, don't you?
Future I have a gaming pc and will still get it on console. The game will still look and play great on either console. Go and play it on pc by yourself because you sound like a nerdy geekboy with no friends...
Well, for 400 bucks, 900p and 1080p/30fps (most times) seems ok wouldn't you think? Keep in mind the actual building cost for Sony is even less.
If all you care about is the best resolution and frame rate than PC is the best option, and the cost of games make up for the price you pay to build it unless you only buy a few games in a generation. I went PC last gen and plan on going console this gen after playing my kids wii u and realizing I want a dedicated system in my living room instead of sneaking down to the basement to play a mmo. I'll probably get a ps4 because I like rpg's more than shooters, because the games are what matter.
No. If I wanted to game on 900p, I would have bought an Xbone. Guess I'll probably get the PC version for my HTPC. Really disappointed to see this was dumbed down. Even Infamous which is out already out, runs at 1080p 30+fps. Ubisoft took the piss on this one.
Agree Future! If resolution is so important just buy the PC version. I have both recently released next gen consoles, I myself was settled on getting the PS4 version when the rumor 1080P/60hz spread like an virus across the web. I don't really care about the 900P, but the 30hz is something I'm about tired of right now. I like to buy the best port or version of the game. So this time around my PC is getting my $60. Is PC gaming expensive? Hell yeah, but like cars some people build their PCs as a hobby, continuously adding parts over time. Is PC gaming a waste of time? Yep, my $500 video card will be obsolete in 3 years unless DX12 is really all that. You do get more mileage out of consoles? Hell yeah, I'm still impressed by PS3 and XB360 visuals.

I will be enjoying the "True" True Next-Gen experience on my PC with Maximum Quality and more than 60 FPS.
name 5 pc exclusives you're anticipating. i'll wait.
@psyxon Only 5, that is too easy, I will give you 10: 01. Star Citizen 02. Unreal Tournament 4 03. DayZ 04. Torment: Tides of Numenera 05. Pillars of Eternity 06. Assetto Corsa 07. The Vanishing of Ethan Carter 08. Starcraft II: Legacy of the Void 09. Civilization: Beyond Earth 10. Planetary Annihilation
There was people saying they would have prefered 1080p at 30fps with better graphics on ps4, but now they are getting 900p hahahaha and now they will Complain about that lol
I agree with ya there, sugarcube :D
Lol at disagree count.
Sad. So much for the 1080p and 60 fps =/ Disappointed.
instead you get 900p and 30fps.. :/
As stories go, the twists in this one have been epic. Just this afternoon people were laughing at others for jumping the gun and getting egg on their face. Now everyone has egg on their face, and the people that didn't participate are beginning to feel left out. Maybe.
I see no downgrade tbh. And yes the hardware is capable, it's just it takes time to learn everything about a new platform.
Id rather have great lighting, texture, shading, aesthetics and game engine compared to the idiotic resolution junkies some people have become
I would have agreed had the game retained its original visuals. But even those have been downgraded.
I'd rather have both. The hardware is capable of it.
Sadly the golem.de article earlier reported bad textures, bad lighting, and visible aliasing. Fear for the division.
60 fps should be the priority regardless of what graphical sacrifices they have to make. Games that run at 30 fps feel unresponsive and irritating. They just put me to sleep. 30 fps is a massive instant turnoff. People who usually play on consoles may not notice this but once you're used to playing 60+ fps on PC it's hard to go back
No big deal. It's all about at least 2560 x 1440p now in the PC world. You console guys really need to stop frames and resolution. That is a PC thing. Just be happy with your games.
comparable I guess to BF4 then.
BF 4 was still 60 fps.
well, sometimes. It dipped all over the place though, hitting as low as 30fps when you were playing some conquest maps.
Lmaoooo this game has had such a trainweck journey PR wise. Xbox continues it weird resolution streak. Surprising at PS4 being 900p. I wonder if the framerate situation will be a repeat of AC4.
Lol it's 900p on PS4, 792p on Xbox One. No wonder this game doesn't look like the PS4 reveal.
Wow! Much 1080p. Such 60fps. Witcher 3 is next. Going to need to get a 770 4GB.
Won't the GTX 870/880 be out by then?
780 6GB is around the corner. Dont expect WD to have goodboptimization regardless
I dont know, they seem to be working very close with Nvidia, with both promo videos and free game giveaway to people who buy a GTX 700 series, you would think it would run well on a graphics card the game comes free with or whats the point.
Certainly not the resolution! :P
Well it's far from a Next-Gen Game.
What makes Watchdogs a next gen game? The fact that the experience of Watchdog is playable on last gen systems kinda makes it not next gen.
"On new-gen systems the game will run at 900p on PS4 and 792p on Xbox One, at 30 frames-per-second on both consoles." :P i wounder if a 2013 system can only give us 792p, how will the game look like on a 2005 system that is the X360...
probably low pc settings, which is what ill be playing on :D lol
Unfortunately these 2013 systems are not a huge jump over the 2005/2006 systems. This generation is the smallest leap in graphics in the history of video game generations.
Where the hell did Sony come up with 1080p and 60fps?! <_<
They were probably promised it by the idiots at ubi
I am worried about PR now :/
Links or it didn't happen.
Like i said before they have a habit of doing this Sony. They tried it with Killzone Shadowfall by claiming the multiplayer was 1080p native. It was found out by Digital foundry i believe months later, this was untrue. Sony never even said sorry or apologised for lying to their fans. They tried to pull a fast one here again. I find it hard to believe Sony didn't know the actual resolution. Tringle Dodd right back at you! Killzone: Shadow Fall outputs at 1080p in single-player and multiplayer, but it isn't native. It uses a unique processing method that blends 960 x 1080 images together.
I told you before about KZ trough PM, trough many articles, but probably i speak with the wall. Just read the f****** KZ article and shut up. F****** MisterX follower! Anyway! I'm quite surprised. I really believed that Watch Dogs will be 1080p/30fps ( at least ) on PS4 ( i predicted that Xbone version will have lower resolution - at least 900p ). Now is 900p for PS4 and odd resolution 792 for Xbone. And 30fps. God damn! So much about delaying the game InFamous : SS PUT THIS GAME GRAPHICALLY TO SHAME!
It is 1920 x 1080. 960 x 1080 are rendered normally, where the other is rendered as a predictive technology and compiled together, resulting in 1920x1080. The image quality isn't as good all the time (when prediction fails), but the image output is 100% 1080p.
They got too excited
How did Sony come up with it? They lied, that's how. Glad the other sites are covering it :)
It does matter. Next gen games cost more. Why should console gamers pay alot more for a game than pc players, when it doesnt perform as well ?
Because Sony and Microsoft both needs money to survive, and they'll take it from you at every opportunity they can reasonably do it.
Resolution doesn't equal performance. If u had a pc, and turned up all the resolution but as a cost u had to turn down the graphics, the high res wont make it look as good as it was at lower res but higher graphics. Same thing happens when creating a game, only a certain amount of recourses in a console, i want better lighting, shading, aesthetics and gameplay mechanics before the resolution goes higher
Frames equate to performance. Crashes and multiplayer destruction will run smoother at 60fps. Technically its suplementing the mechanics. Btw i have doubts about this game, as in the new 9 minute video, there is a car collision at 6 mins and the cars just bounce off one another.
"Aiden Pearce is crouched behind cover in a dark alley..." Hiding from the backlash of this news...
hes hacking all news feeds , amending all stories of 1080p down to 900p…
This is exactly what I thought. UBISOFT have handled the PR for this game terribly, also 900p and 792p?? WTF does that even mean haha. PS4 and XB1 shouldn't be bickering with each other they should be uniting against lazy optimisation and coding!
Hoping Wii U version is 792p 60fps
