Chances of it being a mistake are high.

Same happened with Ultimate Spiderman 2, Trials Fusion.

Abash1110d ago

I actually laughed when I read the headline because of how improbable this is

@butterscotch Microsoft wouldn't bother, waste of their money-better off getting eclusive content which they have done (I hate the practice-they started it I wish sony hadn't continued it but nvm wont make any sane person pick one console over the other just pisses off and punishes gamers.)

dcbronco1110d ago

Butterscotch the only reasonable reply to that ridiculous comment is....what, what.

You know the rest.

DragonKnight1110d ago

This is either a mistake, or purposely done as a mockery to the people who file lawsuits over resolution.

Imagine taking Sony or Ubisoft to court because you expected Assassin's Creed Unity to be at 720p and instead it was at 1080p. The hilarity. If I were the judge I'd laugh that out of court myself.

Maybe Microsoft has a policy that ours has to be higher resolution or both have to only be up to 720p to get the lower rate for putting it on the xbox one. Something like that is the only reason I would think it would be 720p on ps4. And I really think it is a clever marketing tactic out of hollywoods page that they will magically declare was a misprint. It will be 4k! haha (someone will be the first).

Enemy "
No chance. If it's 720p on PS4, expect 540p on Xbox One."

you mean the xbox doesn't have enough memory to render a 720p image? i think it does.

inveni01110d ago

It could be 720p because Ubisoft is lazy. A lot of 3rd-party developers are lazy (meaning their energy and motivation is money-based).

From what I've seen of Unity, there's no reason for it to run at sub-HD levels UNLESS they're lazy.

Or stupid.

TheGreatAndPowerful1110d ago

If it's 720p/60fps I'd be cool with that.

This may be true, i don't know. i remember when sony changed the info for watch dogs, an other ubisoft sandbox title.

DragonKnight1110d ago

Wow, you can see how many people think it's a great thing that Sony is being sued over resolution by the disagree count on my comment. Yeah, some of that is people who disagree with me just to disagree with me, but still.

It's frickin' sad that people think resolution is worthy of a lawsuit. If anything proves how too focused everyone is on graphics these days, it's definitely that lawsuit.

The_KELRaTH1110d ago


I think the disagrees are because you are misunderstanding what is being sued about. It's not about games not being 1080p rather that Sony said x game was 1080p but supposedly it isn't so false advertising etc.

If it turns out to be correct then Sony should be accountable as should any company that falsely advertises something.

Mr Pumblechook1110d ago (Edited 1110d ago )

I'm guessing that after the recent lawsui Sony are just being cautious.

FamilyGuy1109d ago

LOL, Is there even one game on PS4 at 720p?

DragonKnight1109d ago

@The_KELRaTH: Umm, I'm not misunderstanding anything. Someone cares so much about resolution that they are suing Sony because a game isn't what they consider to be native 1080p. Like so many have said countless times, Microsoft advertised a buttload of games as being native 1080p on the 360 and have received exactly zero lawsuits for having 720p games upscaled to 1080p. Guerrila Games even explained the whole situation.

The disagrees are definitely because people want Sony to be sued and they don't care that suing over resolution is the absolute definition of a frivolous lawsuit.

Zhipp1109d ago

I know. What a disaster that would be. How would the XB1 version perform if the PS4 couldn't even reach 720p, and, knowing Ubi's track record, would the game even be playable on PC?

Mithan1109d ago (Edited 1109d ago )

This is N4G. The dumber the headline, the more hits it gets.

And if it DID run at 720p upscaled to 1080p, it would be because they are maxing out the graphics.

More graphics features = more power, meaning you need to turn down the resolution to keep the frame rate high.

It wont happen, but I could live with a 720p version of the game maxed out, rather than 1080p equating to "medium" on the PC.

720p on PS4 that's the highest form of blasphemy (•ิ_•ิ)

Daniel_Potter1110d ago

After taking a look at
i found out that there isn't a single game that runs 720p on ps4
though here are 900p60fps, 900p30fps, 1080p30fps

Still, Ubisoft are known for making badly optimized games. So maybe it's possible

die_fiend1110d ago

There's an equal amount of chance in 720p as there is Xbone being 1080p.

Not a hope in hell

Wizard_King1109d ago

Ubi are one of the crappiest devs out there, if anyone has the potential to make a game so horridly coded that it could only push 720p on the PS4 it will be them.

TheCaptainKuchiki1110d ago (Edited 1110d ago )

I wish I could see his comment -_-

AngelicIceDiamond1110d ago (Edited 1110d ago )

I agree I'm pretty sure this is a mistake.

This will be cleared up and old news in no time.

Back-to-Back1110d ago

If it is true, it gives me a great excuse to not buy at launch.

700p1110d ago

if thats your excuse..GL WITH LIFE LOL

Angrymorgan1110d ago

I look at it differently.
If it did run at 720p, that tells me its a very demanding game and a true nxt gen experience.
The resources would obviously be used elsewhere and maybe it could be a better game for it. I like high res as much as the next guy, but its nothing to get hung up about IMO.

supergravity1110d ago


I agree, I look at what Naughty Dog accomplished on PS3 @720p. Sure higher resolution is great, but it is definitely not the only metric.

warczar1110d ago (Edited 1110d ago )

You should not buy it because it represents everything that's F'ed up with the video game industry. It's an annual release tethered to some BS called uplay with overpriced DLC sprinkled in. If AC were a t.v. Show they'd be on like season 9, it's time to wrap that shit up and move on. When switching the gender of your main character becomes a big deal for your game you've run out of ideas.

oh what fuc!&^%$#k what wrong with those people i hope that is not true for god sick not cool ubisoft again..

Eonjay1110d ago (Edited 1110d ago )

"Same happened with Ultimate Spiderman 2, Trials Fusion."

Which both wound up being 1080p so its just a placeholder.

Mystery solved.

There is also this...

oODEADPOOLOo1110d ago

I hope so, pre-ordered it last night on the premise of 1080p/60fps.

assdan1110d ago

If that's true, what the Hell are they doing at Ubisoft?

Meltic1109d ago

no ps4 for me. PC
