Watch Dogs

Ubisoft have confirmed the resolution and frame rate of the PS4 and Xbox One versions of Watch Dogs. Ubisoft’s open world hacking game will be running at 900p on the PlayStation 4 and 792p on the Xbox One. Both the versions will run at 30 frames per second.

Jonathan Morin, the game’s creative director explains that resolution and frame rate depends on how dynamic the game is.

“Resolution is a number, just like framerate is a number,” he said at Ubisoft’s Blog. “All those numbers are valid aspects of making games. 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,” he explains.

It’s important to note that both versions will have custom anti-aliasing solution but it seems that the PC version will be the superior version provided you have a solid gaming rig to run it.

    I have no issues with this at all this is fine because the X1 is better then 99.9% of everything else so being dev tools are getting better for X1 and now we are only looking at a 108p difference I’ll take X1 all day long.

    I am for devs doing what they need to do to get the best performance out of the console games. i own both the PS4 & X1, prefer the overall setup, UI, controller for the X1, I am going with which version gamefly sends to me first. The game should look fine on both platforms, & 792p, or 900p upscaled to 1080p on my tv, is fine by me. It is what it is..
