    Watch Dogs PS4 res/fps thread: Yesterday 1080p/60fps, today 900p/30fps, tomorrow???

    Ubisoft Strikes Again!

    Ubisoft has confirmed the resolution and frames per second for upcoming open world game Watch Dogs.

    1
    The PlayStation 4 version runs at 900p resolution. The Xbox One version runs at 792p resolution. Both output at 30 frames per second.

    In a Ubisoft blog post, Watch Dogs creative chief Jonathan Morin said it was more important for Watch Dogs to deliver "an amazing next-gen experience" than a 1080p resolution.

    "Resolution is a number, just like framerate is a number. All those numbers are valid aspects of making games," he said.

    "But you make choices about the experience you want to deliver. In our case, dynamism is everything. Exploration and expression are everything. You want to have a steady framerate, but you want to have dynamism at the core of the experience. The same goes with resolution.

    "People tend to look at corridor shooters, for example, where there's a corridor and all the effects are on and it's unbelievable, and they forget that if you apply those same global effects to an open city with people around and potential car crashes and guys in multiplayer showing up without warning, the same effect is applied to a lot of dynamic elements that are happening in every frame. So it becomes magnified in cost."

    Watch Dogs recently benefited from a delay that will see the game launch this month. Why not use the extra time to boost its resolution?

    "The effort was split on continuing dynamism and making sure players can express themselves through hacking without ever being disappointed in how the game responds to them, whether it's visually or through gameplay," Morin said.

    "That's important. Resolution has nothing to do with that. That's why stuff like resolution can scale a bit down so that we never compromise the soul of Watch Dogs."

    Work on Watch Dogs began six years ago, and represents a major investment from publisher Ubisoft. The company hopes it will establish itself as a major franchise alongside Assassin's Creed.

    The game is due out on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 as well as PS4 and Xbox One. A Wii U version is expected later.

    Morin said there will be some differences between the last generation and current generation versions. The single-player experience is "largely untouched", aside from the density of the open world Chicago. There will be fewer NPCs in some areas, Ubisoft said, "but not in a way that affects the core gameplay".

    The seamless online is intact, as that's "part of the essence of the game", Morin said.

    However, there are some modes missing on PS3 and Xbox 360: the Decryption competitive multiplayer mode and the ability to freeroam with multiple players (which Morin describes as more of a "bonus" than a core gameplay experience). But all the other online modes are fully intact.
    So much for that downgrade, haters.

    The Haters were right

    Probably unlocked 30->60FPS if true.

    EDIT: Actually maybe it will be 60FPS in SP but I think it'll be very unlikely for MP.

    Man so many amazing game's coming out, I still haven't finished Infamous SS, but glad to hear the 1080 and the 60 FPS is just a plus for me.

    60fps? that's pretty impressive but then again, it's a cross-gen titles...but a good-looking one.

    I'm very surprised by the 60 fps. I thought for sure this would be 30.

    Personally, I feel that this game will be able to surpass Infamous.

    IGN was giving away copies on their 300th Game Scoop. They looked a lot like Retail Copies.

    Not to mention they've said they were focused on the Wii U version now.

    Even if it's not completely finished, A day one patch won't hurt anyone.

    What does it matter? I like the fact they are using all their extra time to improve the game. Games need to go gold within 2 weeks of release. And just because you do not hear of a game going gold, does not mean that it hasn't.

    Exactly. I'd rather they take more time to polish the game than rush it out half ass and broken like BF4.

    Um my point exactly, you have games go gold a month before release and end up with bugs all over the place. So it's definitely nice to see ubisoft take there time and squeeze out all they can before release.

    Why are you all surprised about it running at 60 fps? it doesn't look next gen at all and since the graphics are ps3 like it's probably not that hard to lock it at 60fps.

    false...it has some suspect and questionable sfx (explosions/smoke) but it's far from ps3 graphics


    ....Unless you were being sarcastic

    You have played both versions already? I assume you have seeing how you are saying the PS4 version looks like the PS3 version. Unless you are trying to use the unconfirmed videos all over the internet. The PS4 trailer is the only confirmed trailer available.

    I assure you, the PS4 version will blow the PS3 version away.

    From what I've seen of the PS4 version it looks amazing. The PS3 version will look awful compared. Can't even see how someone can even compare them


    BBK.. Tapa. Talked.

    it's easy to dismiss the differences through a video.

    I don't see the PS3 graphics at all. I've seen the commercial for the game and it looks pretty fantastic. Not sure why this game is garnishing so much hate. All because of supposed downgrade that has yet to be confirmed because we haven't seen the official product. It might be there but everyone was so quick to jump on this game because of a couple images. I've seen videos and images and nowhere did I see this game got an extreme downgrade. Yes it doesn't look like the reveal back in 2012 but the finished products almost never live up to the reveals.

    Why can't I thumb down posts anymore? This one deserves it.

    I hope this runs terribly on PS3 and perfectly on PS4.. I then have a legitimate reason for finally jumping on the PS4 hype train, even though I said I wouldn't be doing it for a cross-gen title.

    I think with the downgrade it looks like it recieved in terms of visuals, also that it's Ubisoft, people are weary of it. But to me that is ridiculous, very few games look like they do when first introduced, the game play looks amazing, and that's what should be first and most important.

    Either way I can't wait to get my copy
