Chances of it being a mistake are high.

Same happened with Ultimate Spiderman 2, Trials Fusion.

Abash1506d 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.)

dcbronco1506d ago

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

You know the rest.

DragonKnight1506d 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.

inveni01506d 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.

TheGreatAndPowerful1506d 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.

DragonKnight1506d 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_KELRaTH1506d 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 Pumblechook1506d ago (Edited 1506d ago )

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

FamilyGuy1506d ago

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

DragonKnight1506d 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.

Zhipp1506d 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?

Mithan1506d ago (Edited 1506d 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_Potter1506d 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_fiend1506d ago

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

Not a hope in hell

Wizard_King1505d 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.

TheCaptainKuchiki1506d ago (Edited 1506d ago )

I wish I could see his comment -_-

AngelicIceDiamond1506d ago (Edited 1506d ago )

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

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

Back-to-Back1506d ago

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

700p1506d ago

if thats your excuse..GL WITH LIFE LOL

Angrymorgan1506d 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.

supergravity1506d 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.

warczar1506d ago (Edited 1506d 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..

Eonjay1506d ago (Edited 1506d 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...

oODEADPOOLOo1506d ago

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

assdan1506d ago

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

VforVideogames1506d ago

All hell broke loose!!!! (sony fans)

MEsoJD1506d ago

If it runs at 60 fps, than I'd be cool.

otherZinc1505d ago (Edited 1505d ago )

Well, when a game isn't linear, it uses more resources. Also, if it's running
campaign co-op, it will really eat resources.

DarkOcelet1505d ago

Kinda hard to 720p and i dont care if it run on 10p potato mode quality , i would still play that :)

Highly doubt that, for either console.

Kavorklestein1506d ago

Highly doubt it would really matter, considering how beautiful it looks, and with how much is on screen, and the amount of detail. But, yes, I'm thinking the rez will be higher than 720p.

iamnsuperman1506d ago

It would be a strange move for Ubisoft (this early in a console's life cycle)

extermin8or1506d ago (Edited 1506d ago )

Yeah and the psn store said Watch_Dogs ran 1080p 60fps preemtively so either its a mistake or sony are playing it safe as some people threw shit at them over that. But lets say this is true right? and it's only 720p on ps4 then what is it on Xbox one? 480p? I somehow doubt it-it'll be 900p or 1080p on both. Seeing as Watch_Dogs almost certainly suffered from developers being fragmented between console generations and last gen consoles clearly needing more work to get the game running decently on them this doesn'thave that issue so I expect at least 1080p 30fps on both consoles if not 60fps like I think AC4 runs, considering this is a new engine desgined for the new console hardware and better pc hardware optimisation should be less time consuming/easier as these consoles are closer to PC instead of having engines that needed to run well on very different architecture.

XStation1506d ago (Edited 1506d ago )

It must be a very high demanding game then. I doubt 720p though, if it's like Watch_Dogs then it'll at least be in 900p. I don't believe this is true anyways though, but prepare for the overreacting people.
