30+ years of gaming and I never once played the resolution game. I aint about to start now.

People should ask Sony what they think of this.

@ the author

is it a big deal if you pour about a $1000 into a PC rig just to have a developer(s) tell you "screw that, we're going to target the power of the consoles so that everything remains equal" ?

my point is, if everything is bound by lazy developers shooting for parity, what is the point of choice and innovation?

If that was what was actually happening you'd have a point, but the reality is you don't have any actual evidence that the game was gimped on PS4 or even that there is parity between both versions.

We have one offhanded remark by a Ubisoft employee on one side and then we have an official statement from Ubisoft as a company on the other.

You guys CHOOSE to believe one comment and not the other.

It's all very premature. If the game comes out and it is indeed equal across the board on both consoles in terms of graphics and performance then it would make sense to put stock in that first offhanded comment. But if the game comes out and does show graphical differences outside of resolution (which is only one small aspect of the visual presentation) then it would show that Ubisoft were right to correct the mistaken comment by one of their employees.

No Ubisoft game thus far has shown graphical parity. I think you need a lot more evidence than one offhanded remark from a Ubisoft employee to warrant such a massive stampeding mob of hate and negativity.

I suspect a lot of people are going to look very foolish in about a month's time.

No, please enough with FPS. Unless a game is a slide show with less than 30, no one really should care.

Yes it is. 60 FPS>>>>>30 FPS. The PS4 shouldn't have to have 900p because the X1 isn't as powerful. 1080p>>>>>>9 00fps

Better looking game and 60 fps doesn't hurt it. It helps. 60fps IS smoother and better.

But hey, this is Current gen. Where ubisoft console games are a pathetic 900p30fps, and the PC versions are intentionally gimped or have terrible optimization.

It matters if the developers not Harness the full power of every individual hardware just to push for parity.

Why are these articles and youtubers completely missing the point? It's so consistent that I have to believe they're doing it deliberately. Surely they have some concept of what 'principle' means ... don't they?
