I wouldn't say the rise of Graphical Downgrades. Sony has been passing off FMV as real time graphics since the PS1 days. MS is guilty as well with the first Fable, and Halo 2. Nintendo did it back during the N64 days. I can recall seeing rendering that would bring the PS3 to its knees Nintendo claimed the N64 would be capable of in real time.

Bungie admitted that the E3 demo couldn't run on xbox.

Yeah I know that, but that was much later, I think after Halo 2 release.

This is common practice at the beginning of a new generation. Problem is a lot of developers have to guess what a system might be like and so show off what they think they can do. It always turns out to be wrong. It will soon pass as the developers now have these systems and are making games with that knowledge in mind

This gen is the rise of graphical downgrades? Is this your first console generation?

Given that most video game "journalists" are kids with degrees in English and next to zero knowledge about video games, I would probably say 'yes'... it is his first console generation.

If a game is on last gen and current gen systems it will have downgraded graphics so that the game will operate on last gen consoles. Get over it.

I would normally agree with you here; but The Division is being made only for PS4 and Xbox One... so yea...

Regardless, I agree with post from above
