Two games that have disappointment me in the past—Aliens: Colonial Marines; and Watch Dogs. One game may disappoint me in the future—Tom Clancy’s The Division.
I hope Assassins Creed Unity isnt downgraded
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 "This is common practice at the beginning of a new generation.

fed up of all this crap. for years the devs have shown there target for a game,sometimes it isnt possible and has to be downgraded,othertimes they look better than first shown. its just these days and the internet the idiots and news sites need flamebait and to try and create sides for console wars. Aliens was a downgrade and a screw up!!! alot of multiplat games will need tweaking and settings altered and as long as the game looks good and plays nice with a decent story just friggin enjoy them and stop bitching.
Ubisoft simultaneously admitted the e3 graphics setting were locked of to users and denied that Watch Dogs was graphically downgraded. Head.....hurt....so...much.... .stupid.
Stop getting your panties all moist over lighting and shadows and you won't be disappointed. And stop proclaiming games are goty off of 5 minutes of non-gameplay.
Very true. It's all for the hype train. But there are some games that look good. Like killzone shadow fall and ryse.
also MGS Ground Zeroes has some degradation but not so obvious though..look at the GDC 13 Phantom Pain trailer and the actual Ground Zeroes ending , in Phantom Pain you can also notice some degradation in graphics in the recent gameplay footage in comparison to Ground Zeroes and the previous E3 phantom pain trailer ....at least on the powerfull new gen machines give all what you have and dont hold back graphical power so the game can be in parity with last gen
Get used to it..The architecture is so close now between t hem two, everything will be compared, scrutinized and downgraded
The peak of ignorance upon the release of new generation consoles.
