Resolution-gate continues with the latest developments stemming from the recent news for Ubisoft's upcoming Assassin's Creed: Unity.
hahahaahahah thats the most ridiculous piece of sugarcoated bullshit ive ever heard
This is how the convo went: MS: Dude, how dumb are you gonna look pushing your worst looking version of the game? UBI: True, but as developers we strive to.... MS: Here's a check UBI: Parity
If only it were really that simple. Blame Microsoft for PS4's shortcomings. SMH.
How is any of this because of PS4's shortcomings? It's a fact that the Xbox one is weaker than the Ps4 which is why this parity crap by Ubisoft is ridiculous.
LOL Nice gag
It's really not fair because consumers chose the more capable machine for games that took advantage of that machines capabilities, why should they be penalized because others chose the less capable machine? This applies to PC as well because on the PC side Ubisoft has really been screwing up.
I'm a professional music teacher (classical piano) and to me this is like having 2 kids share an hour, where one is obviously more talented and works harder than the other. Even though I'd like them to perform equally, I simply cannot decide to give the weaker pupil more time or attention, just so both can play the same pieces at the same level at the end of the year. The parents paid an equal amount for my teachings, so it's only right I give them the same care and split the hour in half. Just my two cents..
if people pay you money to teach their kid, and you know the one kid takes more time and patience, then you need to be more professional and give more time to your student instead of playing favorites. If i heard that from a instructor that i was paying, i'd find a different teacher that cared more.
But in taking the extra time for your slow kid, then he just played favorites with yours instead being fair to other parents who payed just as much money as you did. It really just comes down to what he's trying to accomplish. If it is merely having them both at a certain level in a specific time frame, then yes he gives more time to the child that needs more help. But if he wants them both to improve as much as they can within a certain time, then he has to split his time equally... or be willing to give up his own time and profit elsewhere (hiring more developers) to catch yours up. What it comes down to in the end, though, is that the parents should have made a better child. (MS! not real actual parents!) EDITED FOR SPELLING AND CLARITY
Thank you, Isujester, for your common sense. I cannot for the life of me see the logic in the reasoning of swishersweets20031. And he claims I'm unprofessional and don't care, lol. Where would the world be if we would only care for the weaklings? I'm not claiming survival of the fittest here, no, I'm just stating that everyone deserves equal attention, certainly if they pay the same amount for the same 'product'.
Article: Hopefully the "bottlenecking" will not become a trend for the PlayStation 4 from certain developers. Granted, Unity will offer cooperative play and more will certainly be required from the CPU, but the PS4 is certainly capable of achieving at least 1080p basing this on last year's title. "Avoiding debates" Well were comparing this to Black Flag which is a cross-gen game to AC Unity which is a next gen game and taking into account the fact that even with 3 years development WatchDogs didn't get 1080p either... this game has been a year in development and has considerably more demanding graphics than BlackFlag, massive open world and co op to boot and on a technical front it has much better draw distance, lighting, AI, number of NPCs... so its safe to say that it is demanding much more than Blackflag which also shipped at 900p but managed to squeeze out 1080p with an Update. You can't deal with 900p with demanding games then I think you'd be better off getting a PC this generation...
[email protected] [email protected] It's so funny how the xbonefanboys are only focused on what Ubisoft is said about the CPU. But the xbonefanboys are totally ignoring . That ubisoft also went on record saying “We decided to lock them at the same specs to avoid the debates and stuff” . The xbonefanboys totally omit that part out of their conversation.
Amazing how people can't tell clickbait from actual genuine gaming news... haven't you noticed that this has been on every major gaming site because it gets views. Its already been said that's been misinterpreted by Ubisoft themselves.
@HaydenJameSmith "We decided to lock them at the same specs to avoid all the debates and stuff," How can that sentence be misinterpreted?
@Magnes http://www.gameinformer.com... Speaking with Videogamer, Pontbriand revealed that the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions will run at 900p and 30 frames per second. "We decided to lock them at the same specs to avoid all the debates and stuff," he says. Ubisoft, however, has offered clarity, unequivocally stating that it did not handicap one of the console versions to achieve artificial parity. "We understand how senior producer Vincent Pontbriand’s’s quotes have been misinterpreted," Ubisoft told us in an emailed statement. "To set the record straight, we did not lower the specs for Assassin’s Creed Unity to account for any one system over the other. Assassin’s Creed Unity has been engineered from the ground up for next-generation consoles. Over the past four years, we have created Assassin’s Creed Unity to attain the tremendous level of quality we have now achieved on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC." The fact that you decide which is a valid statement when both statements came from Ubisoft just shows how hypocritical you are... So when they say they locked it for parity that is regarded as a truthful statement from Ubi but when they respond by saying "We understand how senior producer Vincent Pontbriand’s’s quotes have been misinterpreted," thats just completely false ? Wow you really like double standards... Anything can be taken out of context to make a Clickbait article and guess what its working...
@HaydenJameSmith nice try Calling me hypocrite I simply quoted them and added nothing I'm not sure you know the definition of a hypocrite is but I'll help you out. Hypocrite "A person who engages in the same behaviors he condemns others for". If you notice its what you did by telling everyone which statemen you thought was valid. Boooom!!
@HaydenJameSmith I always take the first quote made by a developer just taking as more likely being true then a PR damage control statement but thats just me...
I love how everyone assumes that just because the PS4 version is only 900p that suddenly the game is crap. The game will still look good people, don't jump off a bridge just yet.
Dude, you don't get it do you? No one is saying Unity is going to look like crap at 900p in fact many who played the game and seen the game says it looks great like i.e. Ryse: Son of Rome at 900p looks great. But there is no denying that 1080p or 4K technically, and specifications wise will look 'better than great' in terms of graphics, fidelity, presentation. And gamers around the world i.e. PS4 and PC gamers bought these high end machines for that purpose. I play PS One games like Xenogears on my PS3 and enjoy it like I do AAA PS3 games but there is the part of me as a gamer that wants to play AAA games like The Last of Us to enjoy the latest and the greatest in cutting edge technology. And that is the part where Ubisoft in pissing many gamers off. Gamers are expecting the latest and the greatest on PS4 and PC AC game and Ubisoft is giving them none of that. Human beings upgrade next generation hardware in pursuit of technical excellence. The PS4 has proven that many gamers are fans of the best quality not brands and this parity clause Ubisoft is saying gives many gamers the impression that they are is holding back the best quality. Ubisoft needs to be fair to their fans on the specific platform they are playing on by optimizing AC Unity performance according to the best capability of that particular hardware so that whoever plays on that hardware knows they are playing the best Ubisoft can do on it. And they are getting the bang for their buck. Got my point? That is a win win situation right there. *pardon my English please understand
First of all, no one can tell with their naked eye the difference between 900p and 1080p. When gamers make more noise about this issue, writing petitions, threatening to not support the game all over a 180 pixel difference this sends a message to devs that it's ok for them to deliberately cut out content for DLC, online passes, games that ship with mediocre gameplay, promised gameplay that didn't live up to the hype. We except that, but rage about a game that has the same graphic level as the X1? "Gamers are expecting the latest and the greatest on PS4 and PC AC game and Ubisoft is giving them none of that." How can you say that? AC:Unity is sporting way more than what the previous AC's did. The co-op alone looks better than what the previous installments are doing. Are you just basing this opinion because the game isn't in 1080p? Is that all it takes to make a game great? It just needs to be in 1080p? If I took a crap and gave it to you in 1080p is it great because it's in HD now? The PS4 has only proven that their fans care more about how a game looks than actual gameplay, design, innovation and if the game is even fun! What's the point of next gen when you could have just stuck with a PC and always had your games in 1080p.
So let me get what you are Saying. The PS4 is high end gaming machine. Sorry but that's a little funny to me. Did you not read what the developers said. The weak CPU that the PS4 has, can not handle the game. The Xbox one CPU is better by the way. But Maybe if PS4 fan keep complaining, the will get a patch to make it 1080p, this way they can enjoy there gimped version of the game. Because that what it will be so they can reach 1080p on the PS4.
so you think every game on the PS4 is going to be 1080p? Wow, wishful thinking on your part.
@gangsta Just because your eyes are bad doesn't mean mine are. I can tell the difference between 900p and 1080p. Was jus doing it in shadow of mordor on pc actually AND comparing other games across both platforms. The difference is there. Your ignorance blinds you. Please for other people's sake. Get your eyes checked.
I love how everyone assume just because people are getting angry at the parity issue that also means that game in going to be crap. Maybe you need to pay attention more. I haven't seen a single person claim the game will be crap because of this. The issue has always been parity. Gimping one system because the other console can't handle the same performance. It's really not that hard to grasp, neo. It's a very simple concept.
Don't get me wrong, I can understand the frustration. Hell I am a PS4 gamer so this "parity" affects me directly since I would be playing this game on the PS4 anyways. I am merely suggesting that boycotting this game because of it being 900p instead of 1080p is just dumb. If you enjoy the series, play the game. Period. Besides, we all know there is going to end up being a patch day one to make the PS4 version 1080p like AC4.
If people really were boycoting this game because it was 900p instead of 1080p, I would agree with you, that's dumb. But once again I need to repeat myself. It has NOTHING to do with the fact the game is currently 900p on PS4. It's all about the principle. It's about purposefully gimping the PS4 version so xbone owners don't feel ostracized. I don't want to be rude, but I don't know how many times I need to repeat myself. It's getting a little insane.
So if a game comes out in the future and is identical on the Xbox One and PS4 you are saying it's not worth buying because in every case - regardless of how demanding the game is - the developers have purposely held back the PS4 version? Are we expecting that every game that releases in the future HAS to be better on the PS4? No ifs and or buts? Just seems a little strange to have that sort of expectations. Can't you just be happy you have a game to play period?
So getting the most out of a console is choosing favorites? I wonder what would happen if it was the other way around
so it's choosing PC?
I actually half expected a fifth playable character to be announced, exclusive to one console...
Ungrateful PS4 owners. AC:U2 exclusive to Xbox one Holiday 2015. Haha
Assassin's Creed is done with numbers. There will be no Unity 2.
has anyone considered that maybe what they said is true. anyone whos played AC know its a very demanding game trying to make the world seem "alive". especially what they're trying to push with this next one they're the devs so they probably know more about it then you guys who are looking at it from the outside.
Wow, people really blaming MS for this issue, when it's cleary Ubisofts lack of effort.
No one knows what's happening behind closed doors. Maybe Ubisoft wants more money from Sony, maybe M$ fed them money to bottleneck it. Either way it's corrupt and the fans pay for it. The idea is to counter that by not purchasing the product. To the dude above who said do we expect all games to be 1080p? Hell yes we do, otherwise 1. Why make the promises, 2. it shows an actual difference between the hardware, and 3. Why would we have upgraded if this isn't capable? Why are other developers able to achieve certain specs and some can't? This is going to lead to a crash in the industry if they are not careful. All the casuals will just start playing phone games and PC gaming will be all that's left.
Well my question is why assume MS paid them to do this? this Ubisoft we're talking about they were not able to get 1080p on Watchdogs on PS4, and that was a Cross-gen game, and they were in a Sony marketing deal. So blaming MS (Or even speculating) for Ubisoft's idiotic decision is absolutely bull. Even your comment is speculating MS is behind this shit. That's why i'm thinking why blame MS when Ubisoft don't make the effort to fully use the hardware and Watchdogs proved that.
Can't Remember any developer promising me 1080 or 60 fps. But then am glad they just makes that are fun.
Can people please stop acting like there telling us the truth? Seriously this is ubisoft they have been caught with there pants down countless times. I still remember they were buying reviews and refusing review copies to sites that scored previous AC titles poorly. On top of that the truth has been said and they aren't even denying it, they are only lying to people dumb enough to believe them.
and can people stop jumping to conclusions that they're lying? goes both ways.
Ubisoft has had a bad year and it's all their fault. Clearly they can't work with this hardware. Between this and Watchdogs and the Crew getting delayed, it's not boding well
pfff the crew is just a NFS rip off played the beta nothing special about it at all
oh but they will when they gonna see ps4 numbers double the xbo version
