Watch_Dogs Graphics on next gen consoles will be the same as high settings on PC

Jonathan Morin, Watch_Dogs' creative director, had something to say when asked about next gen consoles graphics for Watch_Dogs vs PC.

The story is too old to be commented.

Nothing to worry about for people getting it on PS4/Xbox One :)

HaydenJameSmith1188d ago (Edited 1188d ago )

Agreed and I don't mind a sacrifice to resolution to achieve that...

If the option was Medium settings @1080p with 30fps against High Settings @900p(794p for x1) with 30fps... I'd pick the Higher Visuals with lower res every time, no point sacrificing Visuals for resolution...

NatureOfLogic_1188d ago

Well 789p doesn't really help the graphics if you're playing on a 60" full 1080p display. I would rather have full native resolution on a large display than slightly upgraded smoke or other effects. I've always liked that about PC gaming. At least they have a choice. Choosing how important the resolution is depends on the display.

I hate the Wii, and a Wii U is a Wii none the less.

dodgemoose1188d ago


The difference between medium and high settings is more than 'slightly upgraded smoke or other effects'…

FanboyKilla1188d ago

Funny how now res dont matter. Lmfao what happened? Months and months of 1080p this 720p that. You finally realize a ugly game is still a ugly game in 1080p. Hmph or are yall switching to suit yourselves and what you want? Or is it that the weakest console does 1080p 60fps like its standard? Lmfao dont forget fellas and ladies, we have played awesome games before there was 1080p anything. Ill trade 1080p for a game thats worth my 60 bucks any day. You guys are worried about the wrong thing. If you were talking gameplay, emersion, something that puts a smile on your face, xp that youll remember for ever. The devs wouldnt be selling you specs and numbers, but thats what you, the consumer seems to be focused on. Why focus on games when all they want is 1080p and specs so they can get on the net and tell the world things it doesnt give a shi* about. Smh

@Lightning Mr Bubbles

What the shit did that have to do with anything?

0ut1awed1187d ago (Edited 1187d ago )

Well semi-correct. I'll be playing at 2560x1440 at 96fps on my PC. I guess there is Ultra too.

Love my PS4 but I hate articles that try and make the playing ground seem more even than it really is. It will look damn good on consoles regardless. No need to try and make it seem like there is no need for a multiple thousand dollar PC if your in to that kind of thing.

We'll all be playing the same game regardless. :)

DragonKnight1187d ago

Sorry, I have to call B.S. on that one Ubisoft.

A PC would be able to get that 1080p resolution, and you chose to focus on 900p for the PS4. That already shoots the claim that the graphics will be the same right out of the water.

I may not like PC elitism, but let's be honest and ditch the PR machine.

Einhert1187d ago

You do understand that resolution is directly attributed to visuals?

720p looks like crap after I have been playing on a PC with 1080p due to the resolution.

There is still the Ultra settings on PC. Tomb Raider ran close to Ultra settings on PS4 with unlocked frame rate but I guess we can chalk this one up as a cross-gen game limitation.

gamernova1188d ago

Thing is that the ps4 version has its own extra development. If the PC and ps4 both got the definite edition, the PC version would have looked better than it did, even in ultra.

Kurylo3d1188d ago

Basically the ps4 version of tombraider was an upgrade that never got ported to PC.

Dynasty20211187d ago (Edited 1187d ago )

The re-mastered console version still looked worse overall (of Tomb Raider), even with the entirely new textures over the PC version.

Plenty of pics prove it.

Get close to the textures and the standard textures found on PC wins massively every time.

tuglu_pati1188d ago (Edited 1188d ago )

My biggest problem is the AA problems low resolutions brings when upscaled. 900p is not that bad but 796p to 1080p is a lot of scaling.

Future_20151188d ago (Edited 1188d ago )

It runs "high" settings at 900p and this creative director will say a lot of BS to get you to buy the console version if you have a console. Meanwhile we on pc can enjoy ultra settings and personally I will be playing it at 4K with my new 4K samsung monitor, also we have HBAO plus, tessellation, Physx, TXAA aliasing, 60fps and more included with ultra settings so don't say it will be close, even the nvidia trailer with direct gameplay of watch dogs running on pc you can see how much better it looks.

HaydenJameSmith1188d ago (Edited 1188d ago )

Stop throwing out pointless technical terms like tessellation, physx, TXAA aliasing in an attempt to make the console version seem shit. Yes we all know the PC version will be the best looking but for what we pay for our console in comparison to that PC you payed for we are getting a great looking game... so pls save the PC masturbator race speech for someone who cares...

Future_20151188d ago (Edited 1188d ago )

@HaydenJameSmith U mad bro? throwing out technical terms? yes and they all make the game look amazing and make it look like a 2014 game not some GTA 5 console look alike in the day time on consoles so please...

PS4 fanboys are like Muhhhhhh GDDDDRR5 loll

HaydenJameSmith1188d ago (Edited 1188d ago )

"U Mad Bro?" and "GTA 5 console look alike" statements like that make me laugh and assure me I don't have to take anything you say seriously...

D3ATH_DRIV3R_7771188d ago (Edited 1188d ago )

Of course it'll look great on a PC, but you don't have to brag about it. We all know that already! since you want to jump on the trolleybus and troll and be immature to, bubble down.

KonsoruMasuta1188d ago (Edited 1188d ago )

I doubt anybody here is mad. If you're going to play it on PC, good for you. Just don't come here, bragging, and acting like people care.

Next time you feel like trying to brag about your beast rig, remember this....

Bathyj1188d ago

At least we got to play GTA5. But I hear you might be getting Red Dead Redemption soon, so have fun, its a great game.

Hey, I have nothing against PC gaming or PC gamers, but Hayden is right, the constant rubbing our noses in it is annoying and I was just pointing out both sides of the coin have their merits.

AD7051188d ago

So when the pc version looks the best it doesn't matter and no one cares. But everyone seems to care about which console version looks the best. When PC is involved it doesn't matter and pc gamers shouldn't brag about it but it's ok to brag about how many 1080p games your console of choice has over the other consoles. Oh the hypocrisy.

KonsoruMasuta1188d ago

ADO75, I don't care what version looks better. I prefer to play the games, not the graphics. No hypocrisy here.

So guess what...

TheGrimReaper1188d ago


Sir, you know your stuff!
Nothing better than "TXAA aliasing"...

AD7051188d ago

Yeah sure so I guess the whole "watch dogs will be 1080p/60 fps on PS4 and not on xbox one" claims just didn't happen right? I agree as well I play games to not graphics but please stop being blind to the console fanboy hypocrisy on graphics. Do you tell that to xbox and playstation fanboys when they brag about graphics? But oh no I forgot it's ok for them to talk about it but pc gamers can't or they're elitists.

gigoran1188d ago

Well congratulations mr fancy pants. Enjoy playing it on your 4k whatsit which normal people can't afford. The rest of us are going to play it on whatever our budget allows us to. But only if that's ok with you. Should we submit our applications for playing to you in written form?

Dee_911188d ago

who the hell still says you mad bro in 2014?

Enjoy playing on that thousand dollar monitor that will probably crap out ina couple months on that $1000 machine that will have various graphical bugs like 90% of PC games and spend the first few months on boards trying to figure out why your game is lagging on a $600 card and $200 cpu wit no bottleneckzz, then wait another few months for updates to fix those bugs just to play on settings that looks slightly better.

Jughead34161188d ago

PC gamers can be some real dicks sometimes. It's like the racism of gaming

AceBlazer131188d ago

@AD705 Yh you mad? Leave the console comparisons to consoles.

Think of it like this, two guys are comparing their dogs to see which is faster, then outta nowhere a guy comes bragging that his horse is faster than both dogs.

If you didn't catch it, consoles are the dogs pc is the horse. So why not go compare your horse to other horses. Leave us peasant console owners to our petty quarrels and try not to force pc into it.

AD7051188d ago

LOL I don't even see why I come here anymore. All I ever hear from the console fanboys on this site is arguing with one another over which console is more powerful, who has the better graphics, whose hardware will improve over time, how these consoles are high end pc equivalents etc etc..... But when you hear about how they're nothing compared to a PC you guys start crying wolf and claiming these things do not matter. I don't care about if this is a console discussion. Hypocrisy is hypocrisy. Hell sony fanboys still damage control over the fact that watch dogs isn't 1080p/60fps like they all said it would be. I'll go back to my ps4 and pc and leave you guys to argue over graphics, something you guys never claim to talk about or care for yet do so all the time.

forager1188d ago

@Dmarc actually that rig will cost well over 1,000 the graphics card themsevles will probably go near 2,000 since its in 4k running SLI.

But anyways Ill be getting it on X1 and im okay with that:)

user56695101188d ago (Edited 1188d ago )

I Dont even know why you bother. They are just going to deny and downplay PC no matter what. They talked up how the gfx was going to compete with the PC version, and now that the news is out that it can't even reach 1080p at high, they are making excuses.

They console fanboys downplay everything that doesn't make their console superior, but when the facts come up they lie, make up excuses, and deflect. Look at them yeah we Dont have gtav. If it Dont come out o well rockstar lost. Ill save my money. They only come out with like 3 games a gen.

If ps4 had the best version, PS fanboys would of treated like the second coming . I like how people say they dont care about those features, but when sony state a feature that has been used on pc for the longest yall treat them like they discovered the cure for cancer. If ps4 had the best version ps fanboys would of bashed bone in every article and said the usual bs to PC gamers. Upgrading every 6 months just to run a game that ps4 do better . That why I just brought a ps4 instead.

Now the facts is out and its can't even run on ultra at 900pp. Gotta love the flip flopping . Sony gymnastics at its finest
