Watch_Dogs On PS4 And Xbox One Look Identical, More Info On Safe House And Difficulty Levels

“They look pretty much the same from what I can tell. On the animation side they are identical.”

Watch_Dogs (2)

If you have noticed, Ubisoft are yet to showcase actual gameplay footage on the Xbox One version of the game. So far we have seen several trailers and demonstrations of the PS4 version but the lack of any Xbox One footage has created a bit of confusion among gamers who own Microsoft’s current generation console.

So how is the Xbox One version shaping up when compared to its PS4 counterpart? Colin Graham who is working on Watch_Dogs as an animation director believes that both versions are identical.  “They look pretty much the same from what I can tell. On the animation side they are identical,” he replied to an inquiry on Twitter.

Colin also revealed that there will be several difficulty levels in the game. “There are difficulty levels. Now I play on realistic, and it’s really freaking hard, but it like a challenge.”

And what about buying safe houses or hideouts in Watch_Dogs, Colin said that “you won’t need to buy them, you will earn them. You can save your cash to buy cars guns and crafting items.”

Watch_Dogs releases on May 27th across last gen and current gen consoles, along with the PC version.

    So, this is basically saying ‘animations’ like Running animations of the character? Like the comparison that shows PS3/PS4 and Xbox 360/X1 side-by-side of Big Boss in MGS5 running and showing the Animation differences and the smoothness that ‘Current gen’ and 60FPS provides?

    This does not then, ‘Animation based’ tell us if the Visuals are the same, AA, Resolution, framerate. this is a dodgy answer, no? No one really cares about animation smoothness unless say, they’re comparing it to Naughty Dogs’ animation benchmarking of Uncharted and TLoU, which have pretty damn good animations for last-gen.

  • Dennis Crosby

    Pretty much the ps4 version will look slightly better then the Xbox one but it will pay the same on both but I feel sorry for Wii U owners there stuck in the middle of two generations if that’s the only console they own. Its more capable then the xb360/ps3 but not enough to get the games that are coming out on xb1/ps4/pc. The good news is that as long as games are being made for xb360/ps3 they might get them on the Wii U

  • Xtreme Derp

    Last I heard it was still 1080p to 900p.

    • maybe

      1080/960 but they stated its subject to change.

    • Xtreme Derp

      That 960p was a rumor by a single website that cited a conference that never happened. Probably wrong.

    • maybe

      Then 1080/900 (went back and saw a twitter post did mention 900 for x1)

    • Psionicinversion

      i think the gfx may look similar but id expect a slightly lower density in cities and possibly a lower resolution and 30 fps

  • Guy Brohski

    “On the animation side they are identical…” Translation: The Xbone has a worse resolution.

    • Xtreme Derp

      Anyone sane expects that.

    • jent

      There you go again with the dismissing of others who disagree with you as insane.

    • CervantesPR

      how is he disagreeing? ITS DA TRUTH XBOX ONE VERSION IS INFERIOR PERIOD!

    • jent

      I said dismissing not disagreeing. Also why are you yelling?

    • greg

      But but…. but sony is dying

    • Psionicinversion

      they are dying but the only treatment there getting is PS4, can it sustain them, can it save there life from going under its insane to think about………………….. it might just work

    • Xtreme Derp

      If someone doesn’t think the PS4 version will have some kind of advantage, they’re probably drinking the misterxidiot kool-aid, thus their sanity (or intelligence) can’t be very high.

    • Dakan45

      dumb as rocks and mentally ill fanboy always wrong.

    • Dakan45

      he always does, the annoying c3nt.

    • Psionicinversion

      PC is sooo superior and you can control so much in a short space that if a console went as far as the PC’s keyboard the gamepad would look like this

    • Michel Simmons

      Still buying for my X1 though ^_^ even with the lower resolution.

    • Psionicinversion

      You see guys this guy is a real gamer

    • rafael

      And im buying this for the Wii U, wheres my hug?

    • Psionicinversion

      hug ya tablet controller :P

    • Guy Brohski

      I seriously doubt the Wii U version will ever see the light of day.

    • lesrima88

      he’s saying that because he doesn’t have any other option lol

    • CervantesPR

      For the exclusives?

    • John

      Yea I have Xbox One, PS4 and Wii U. So far I like my Xbox One best and have not been disappointed with 3rd party titles to date so I plan to pick mine up for my X1 too. The only 3rd party game I have on my PS4 to date is Assassins’s Creed. Game is awesome! Only reason why I got that for my PS4 was because I was buying all the hype how bad Xbox One is and did not get mine at launch. Eventually I got my X1 and truth be told I know nobody wants to hear this and I’m going to be called a liar but I like my Xbox better then my PS so far. Resolution gate really does not bother me at all. Don’t get me wrong, Love my PS4 too both are great machines. Just picked up Second Son and its pretty good but at the moment I prefer my Xbox exclusives over what Sony has to offer and not a huge fan of indies although I do really like that one game I bought on my PS4 Contrast!

    • GremDude

      Well that is just dumb. Why buy the inferior version? Well you seem to like the Xbone better for some reason. Must be the voice commands huh?

    • Jerjef

      What someone doesn’t agree with you so they’re dumb? The 360 was technically inferior to the PS3, but people bought it and loved it. Like so many have pointed out before, resolution doesn’t make the game. You can plug your ears and yell “I love Sony” till your tongue bleeds, but a lot of people are going to have this opinion whether you make fun of them or not.

    • GremDude

      LOL! I was just trolling ya! Geez

    • Jerjef

      Do you make a beeping sound when you throw it in reverse that quickly? Trolling or not, you called someone dumb and I called you out on it. Deal with it.

    • GremDude

      You are a nasty Xbot aincha? The dumb person(aka you) is the one who gets all pissed off at an obvious troll. Get an education. It is your right as an American!

    • Jerjef

      Come on dude, don’t hide behind the troll excuse. Don’t expect to just act like an idiot online whenever you want and then expect a free pass by saying you were just trolling. All the same I’m done feeding this “troll” so if someone else wants to have some fun with him go for it, he’s starting to bore me. BTW I’m not an xbot nor an american. Yer 0 for 2 troll.

    • GremDude

      What a moron! LOL

    • Godoku No-Dan

      Well they downgraded the PS4 version, to mAke Xbone parity. You won’t be missing much.

    • The Wolf 47

      This means “We didn’t take advantage of the PS4 GDDR5″.
      Essentially confirming that Infamous Second Son is graphically better.
      … *sigh* what’s the point in having this extra RAM whether it’s the PS4 or PC graphic cards if devs aren’t even going to take advantage of them?
      Xbox One is that minimum standard and everything else is copy and paste without any extra effort. Yea, it’ll run better on stronger platforms (PS4 and PC) giving better resolution/frame rate (other small perks) but lazy devs will still put minimal effort.
      Kinda sucks.

    • GremDude

      That has not been true so far with every multiplatform running at higher res on PS4. This was a myth before this gen started. And yes Infamous looks incredible!

    • The Wolf 47

      Like I said, beyond resolution and frame rate, it sucks for PS4 and PC… especially PC gamers.

    • Guy Brohski

      Well being a cross generation title certainly has something to do with the game’s downgrade since the E3 2012 reveal.

  • Kevin Kirby

    X1 has been getting new dev tools so PS4 basically has no advantage any longer.

    • maybe

      PS4 still has better hardware. If X1 ever catches up it would need DX12 and the cloud to work the way microsoft claims it will.

    • Vious

      however it goes I just want great games to play and new and improved experiences and more ways to use my xbox one.

    • Dikan45

      That’s what it’s all about at the end of the day, you’d think some fanboys on these forums were shareholders not gamers!

    • extermin8or2

      You realise the ps4 gets better dev tools too? right? The hardware gap is a hardware gap only extra hardware can fully fill. If sony just sat on their arse’s and never iterated on or improved ps4’s dev tools then yeah xb1 would catch up fairly fast but they haven’t done that and likely never will…. if the clod had the infrastructure to support it’s use then maybe xb1 would get an advantage which would be somewhat limited as MS’s cloud isn’t geared towards specific cpu or gpu processing. It’s just their cloud system server system. It’s unlikely the cloud wil be able to function in the way described actually happening in the next 5-10 years seems smaller.

    • Psionicinversion

      big difference is MS tools sucked considerably harder than PS4’s so X1 will catch up faster by releasing tools that actually work properly

    • Xtreme Derp

      You’re the biggest tool here.

    • Psionicinversion

      omg pot calling the kettle black lol, i think thats a compliment coming from you!! ;)

    • extermin8or2

      There is still a significant hardware difference.

    • Psionicinversion

      i know yeah lol ive said that before :d when i get me upto £600 maxwell 880 card there will be a sizeable difference in power :P

    • http://akimotogaming.co.vu/ ilovegoogleglass

      Yes graphically…

    • Xtreme Derp

      lols

    • Dakan45

      you are the tool here dipsht.

    • http://akimotogaming.co.vu/ ilovegoogleglass

      Microsoft’s tools were horrible! They left Devs in dust when it came to esram, heck the Deadrising 3 Devs had to go directly to Redmond to figure everything out… Hopefully the tools have ironed out with the rumored updated SDK…

    • http://akimotogaming.co.vu/ ilovegoogleglass

      The PS4’s tools can only go so far… of course new dev features and techniques will come, but the PS4’s API is as low as it gets.

    • extermin8or2

      Its early days yet whatever the devs etc say to big up their achievements so far the api can probably gwt closer to the metal, memory can be managed betrer and multi threading and gpgpu better utilised etc. Hardware difference is hardware difference after all and im talking as soneone assuming eventually bpth consokes api’s and sdk’sallow prrtty much the same kevel of effeciency when makong games for them. Unless the ps4 stops short of this level of eeffeciencyby a good margin the xbox one will akways be behind its abilities graphically etc by the margin that the dofferemce in hardware dictates.

    • Kevin Kirby

      What language are you speaking?

    • extermin8or2

      Oh that is mature….. typing on my phone-left a few typos if you actually can’t read it however then you must be thick

    • Psionicinversion

      I wouldnt go $hit talking about the cloud tbh cus my mate at work is a absolute playstation nut i love giving him crap about his PS4 but he says that hes heard based on whether this PS now stuff is a success or not the PS5 will be a streaming gaming box where the game is streamed from the cloud and played. not sure well dont even think hes sure what it will be, the next iteration shuld 5-6 years and ive said him there is NO way that will happen cus the internet in many territories will not be sufficient. In america will be so so bad cus they pay rediculous amounts of money for a small data cap becuase theres virtually no compeition.

      Personally i cant see that happening, in 10 years yes not 5, no way. Also theres some nvidia gfx cloud computing boxes which contain like 6-8 Titans and cost $50,000, i told him for sony to do that theyd need clusters costing 100’s million of dollars and prolly need like 1 titan (pending on output resolution) 1-3 ppl per titan. they cant do it. so itll be a proper console definately

    • extermin8or2

      I feel you should know that what you are talking about are differrnt things the cloud processing a whole game and then sending you whats effectovely a compressed video feed of it is wayyy easier and actually possible todo. It requires much less bandwidth, depending on the compression techniques-its how ps now and ps vita work using gaikais conpressikn tech and servers etc. Its also how those nvidia boxes work. What microsoft has been talking about is claiming your xbox will process part of a frame and the cloud anything else too demanding-thats just not feasible not with the latency and bandwidth limitations.

    • Psionicinversion

      oh so sending a game could work them and just have a streaming box? isnt a limitation of it like it cant support mmo’s cus of the amount of other ppl inputting into the game as well?

      also dont think i mentioned MS solution

    • extermin8or2

      Hmmm I honestly dont know about mmo’s at a guess I’d say they should be able to function as games hosted on servers elsewhere private or public do work. But I’m not sure what that would be like . Hmmm interesting thought but yeah if ms want to open a gaming streaming service like ps now then I can believe that . I just have an issue with their original claims of part processed by xbox 1 part processed by cloud just

    • Psionicinversion

      some of it could be like non “mission critical” stuff but prolly not worth it. the AI drivatars in Forza is interesting how cloud can work making the AI in cars more personalised/harder without a pre-defined preset in game. The only downside is if your playing 30% of the time drunk would it make the AI cars easier or would it turn them into drunks as well smashing into side bariers? someone will have to test that out but guess they generally stick to the track

    • greg

      I doubt that there will be another console generation because Sony are dying and Microsoft probably won’t be carrying on there xbox line

    • Psionicinversion

      of course MS will, dont you understand MS’s strategy? they want be at the center of your technological life… where all there products integrate into 1, xbox, WP, surface, office, windows, skydrive, skype, bing search engine (they wouldnt lose $5billion a year at the start for nothing) etc MS doesnt look 5 or 10 years ahead there looking at 20, 30 ,40 years as connections improve limitations in say internet infrastructure get removed they are there, WP and windows app stores integrating into one where difference between the 2 can be changed with minimal lines of code.

      I think X1 was a test bed for a A-I-O entertainment device, and it does work on a level. The lack of TV and guide integration people slamming it, this is just the start for them they wont see this as a failure, its just ramping up thats all.

      I may seem like a xbox fanboy or a MS sympathizer or whatever but they prove time and time again that they look to the future and are in it for the long game. Windows 8 generally a bit of a disaster but windows 9 will probably be pretty good.

      Thing with MS is there like a bull in a china shop or like ancient chinese proverb man walking sideways through door with 3rection going to bangkok. They just whack it in there then improve on next iteration so xbox 2 (if you will could be alot better just hope they ditch the esram BS cus sonys implementation is far better although better for gaming pends what ya goal is)

    • YOUDIEMOFO

      SCHMACK….SCHMACK…..!

    • Psionicinversion

      POW….KABOOM… actually got a question do the batman games have that stuff on or was it just from the orgiianl batman series that had that?

    • YOUDIEMOFO

      OG Batman I believe….. Would be cool if they offered an in game option to play like the old series’ effects and skins.. Would make for some fun replay value.

    • Psionicinversion

      yeah and having animations where they are clearly missing the other person when they goto punch em hahaha

    • Kevin Kirby

      LOL it’s funny to see how clueless you really are. First of all I’ve worked with IT people and have placed them on MS projects and I know first hand that the MS Azure sever network is vast and extremely powerful. MS can and will use the cloud for games in the future and they will do mind blowing stuff graphically. It really comes down to when developers start doing it. It will clearly be for games that are online only so the market is smaller for that. We will see stuff with like Halo 5 and the new Gears game use some form of added cloud power with things being offloaded to the cloud for extra power.

    • extermin8or2

      Wow calling other people clueless when you yourself clearly dont know what you are talking about. Firstly I’m studying physics at uni and whether that method of using the cloud is possoble the way you vlaim it is comes down to skme vwry simple maths andbphysics. I can tell you ar current internet speeds the time differences between how fast the data would have to travel to meet the requirements of the hardware to bw lrocessed in time for each frame are powers of ten out…. now incase you’re not understanding but that is ALOT. So graphics are most definitely out of the quesrion for the forseeable future. Tasks that sont eequire updated calcularions evwry fre but evwry few frames should be possible but limits you to big set pieces in the background Ns cwrtain AI innovarions but remember rhese wikl go awol if someone inreener dies/has any issues. Also I know many people studying or who have srudied computer science and those Ive discissed this with fully agree with the above. This really isn’t up for debate. Also ms’ s azure service is large however it is not dedicated to xb1 it us rented out to other companies etc for various tasks aswell as dealing with xbĺ and how many of their servers are virtual vs actual physical servers remains unrevealed. Onw thing is certain if MS could pull off this offloading graphics to the cloud the actual tech revolution todo so would be bigger than the news of the xb1 etc. They dont have any spdcial software revealed or techniques so clearly ir doesnt exist and the cloud will not be having any noticeable impact on graphics anytime soon. Streaming games conpletely from a server however… thats a different story entirely. (I apologise for any typos, on mobile-I checked but I dont always catch them all.)

    • Kevin Kirby

      Look here is the deal you can do things like fog and shadowing and smoke effects also some advanced lighting effects on the cloud. These things are typically really graphics intensive to the GPU so if they can offload some of that it will free up large amounts to be thrown back at the GPU to maybe up texture quality whatever so don’t say it is going to be hard it’s honestly not. In fact if they can render full games over the cloud then rendering just specific aspects is honestly a piece of cake. It’s just blind Sony fanboys who want to shoot this down because they fear it. Also a lot of people don’t realize their is another reason the ESRAM is in the X1 it also helps to stream higher bandwidth graphics from the cloud.

    • extermin8or2

      You can do fog etc (although not fog that will dynamically interact woth the player character as that would again require new info every frame.) But how many devs will honestly bother? It does make programming your game harder and if the connection goes down, it’d dissapear. Alot of devs wont see it worth their while. And neither is this feature exclusive to xb1 I mean look at demons souls that used dedicated servers dmto decide how difficult each world was depending on peopkes gameplay history within them. Also remember if esram is handling the internet stream it cant do other stuff to the gpu, and everything else would have to go through the slower memory. God memory allocation would be a pain for any dev im sure. We shall see anyway. Oh and streaming a whoke gane isndifferent it just sends you a video stream and your inputs are sent back, different to oart sharing tasks anyway im done woth this thread now I think.

      It’s gonna be great on either console ;)

    • Xtreme Derp

      Factual PS4 Hardware Advantages: +6 CUs, +560 GFlops (44% greater), +16 ROPs, +6 ACEs/CQs, better GPGPU support, better performing CPU, and faster unified memory. PS4 OS may also have less overhead or reserves.

      Both Sony and MS have world class coders that will extract every bit of performance out of their consoles with their drivers/APIs/SDKs. The difference is PS4 simply has more powerful hardware to work with, so it will always stay ahead in graphics performance.

      PS4 will have better performing games for the entire generation as it has more powerful hardware, you can’t overcome a hardware gap with better drivers/SDKs.

    • brianc6234

      Not true at all. The Xbone version won’t ever match the PS4 version. That 8GB of GDDR5 RAM is too big of an advantage.

    • Dakan45

      of which only 5gb is available for games and the REAL advantagage is not the GDDR5 you moron but the GPU being superior.

    • Dikan45

      I can’t see the ps4 not progressing too though, people talk like it’s just going to stand still while xbox catches up!

    • Dakan45

      it cant do much, its so open to devs that they are almost maxing it out according to witcher 3 and the order devs

      You Poor sad xbox fans, keep believing that propaganda.

    • Jerjef

      So if a dev states something positive about PS4 it’s fact, but if that same dev states something positive about X1, it’s propaganda? Ubisoft just last week were going on and on about how the PS4 allowed them to dream when developing Watch Dogs, and no one questioned that, but here they are today saying something positive about the X1 version and it’s propaganda?

    • CervantesPR

      yes it is because the PS4 version will be better and look better and there is no way getting arround it. The PS4 has proven multiple times that its more powerfull than the xbox one, xbots just cant seem to accept that FACT, they are still trying to believe that the xbox one will get even with the PS4,thats never going to happen unless microsoft pays devs to hold back on the PS4 versions of games.

    • Jerjef

      Boy you’ve really got all your bases covered don’t you. The PS4 will always look better, but if it doesn’t it’s because MS paid the devs. There’s no winning an argument with you is there?

    • CervantesPR

      i just dont know what other ways to to say it :/
      Its ok for you to love your xbox one dude, theres nothing wrong with that, but you will have to accept the fact that multiplats games will look better on PS4 this gen, that is a FACT. why keep denying it? its ok for you to love your xbone, just say that you like the games or your friends have one or you like the kinect features, but just accept the reality that the PS4 is more powerful. why is it so hard to comprehend?

      Factual PS4 Hardware Advantages: +6 CUs, +560 GFlops (44%
      greater), +16 ROPs, +6 ACEs/CQs, better GPGPU support, better performing CPU,

    • Jerjef

      What about Dying Light, EA Sports UFC, FIFA Soccer 14, NBA 2K14, Need for Speed Rivals, and Wolfenstein? Not every game is going to be superior to the Xbox One. Now I never once said the X1’s hardware was better, I’m simply pointing out the hypocrisy that plagues these boards. Someone says something nice about the X1 and it’s immediately played off as bull and bribery. I’m not an Xbox One fan btw, I don’t own either console yet because I still haven’t decided which one I like, but I can’t help but pick up for the underdog when these threads are so one sided and bogged down with double-standards.

    • Psionicinversion

      it will catch up but there is a clear raw power advantage that cant be overcome tbh. It will start doing alot better though and DX12 for X1 is a load of crap, it cant really add anything to the console cus they need it all now…. what it will do however is allow a very similar thing for X1 and PC so ports are extremely easy from PC to X1 which might give it an advantage in terms of could allow devs more time to focus on improving the performance of the engine for X1 if the porting is reall easy

    • extermin8or2

      This is true and assuming devs can bothered to deak with the esram and aoend more tine recoding to take advantage amoff it.dx12from what ive understood is mainly based in ďx 11.x or whatevellr is its main conponent. Also hapoens to have already been patched to ps4….

    • Psionicinversion

      well DX11 is archaic its not built on how current hardware functions which is its main limitation. Youve seen all the stuff about unbinding someat so instead of having 32 someats can do maybe 100 or unlimited, and thats prolly why opengl is so much faster cus all that was taken care of ages ago. It mimics mantle alot in its approach and in the same way dx can handle stuff on its own but DX12 with the extra stuff allows th application to build its own comand queues so instead of the driver do best guess its exact which is what mantle does to. It goes so much deeper than just freeing up the CPU from drawcall limitation its allowing say your game to exactly specify how to do stuff in the most optimal way rather than the driver guessing how it should be done in an optimal way. Thats the main difference tbh.

    • You are flat out wrong

      It’s a last gen game, you chimp. Of course they’re going to look identical.

    • Guy Brohski

      New dev tools don’t suddenly make the 50% power advantage for Sony go away, though. PS4 devs also get better dev tools as time goes on so there’s that.

      yeah sounds awesome i was talking to my mate today and i thought it was a online play feature, didnt realise that other people can just invade your game. He was saying in one of the vids when you aiden was walking along some cars blew up beside him, that was another player doing that. Its going to EPIC…. to all the haters about the “downgrades” how many games can you do that on??? umm i cant think of any

    • Dikan45

      That’s the 1st thing I’ll be turning off when I get it, can’t be doing with people butting in on my play through!

    • Psionicinversion

      omg so butt hurt delusional tired and lonely…. afraid of what real next gen looks like omg running scared, under your covers leaving the light on so the boogie man doesnt get ya

    • Dikan45

      Have a day off!

    • Psionicinversion

      you dont think invading another persons game isnt next gen? its using the fact that most ppl are connected and online to add an extra level of gameplay. Infamous woopy doo better gfx blah blah, but what is actually changed nothing… MGS5 id consider more next gen as it use a tablet or someat as a second scren for a map. Its using extra technology around it to add more levels of immersion or ways of doing things,. adding the vita isnt the same thing as its a sony made product integrating that easy integrating other stuff is thinking outside of the box tbh. sony prolly saw it with the wii U and thought vita can do that lets add it

    • Dikan45

      Certain people will just abuse it going around hacking people just to try ruin their game, a bit like how certain people just troll comments sections posting flamebait to try wind up the fanboys among us(no offense)

    • Psionicinversion

      that’s prolly why you can turn the feature off. Its not going persistent same way as ppl dont have to reply to trolls comments!!!

    • Xtreme Derp

      I’m going to invade your game and downgrade your graphics.

    • Psionicinversion

      im going to help you out by invading your game and upgrading your graphics although side effects are it may blow up your PS4 cus it cant handle it!!

    • Dakan45

      hahaha awesome

    • Dakan45

      on pc? good luck mentally ill fantard

    • Dakan45

      stop impersonating me then.

  • brianc6234

    The main difference will be the PS4 version will be 1080p while the Xbone version will probably be around 800p.

    • Stephen Perry

      …and? The game will still play the same, correct?

    • Xtreme Derp

      And most people want the cheaper, more powerful system to play multiplatform games on. As evidenced by the ~3 million sales gap.

    • Dakan45

      dumb as rocks mentally ill fanboy

  • just a guest

    at least my pc looks better than both xbone and ps4. yet i do own both of those. why be a fanboy when you can just own it all? if you dont have the money then go work and earn it.

    • Psionicinversion

      oo burned!! love it, you ever seen Michael Mcintyres showtime comedy show?

    • ImonadrugcalledCharlieSheen

      Don’t need to own an xbone to know I dont want one, lots of better stuff out there to spend the money on.

    • Psionicinversion

      like a base ball bat to smash up the weak PS4?

    • ImonadrugcalledCharlieSheen

      Settle down kid, lol.

    • Psionicinversion

      i would do after some gratuitious PS4 violence :P

    • ImonadrugcalledCharlieSheen

      No reason to be so angry.

    • Psionicinversion

      You should just be glad im not out picking up prozzies having my way with them then beating the up get my money back…. GTA hasnt influenced me at all!!! lol

    • Dakan45

      damn 3 replies some one is BUTTHURT

    • Dakan45

      you mad you got pwned btch?

    • Dakan45

      hahaah

    • Dakan45

      and he spends them on sony products

  • ImonadrugcalledCharlieSheen

    “pretty much the same” translation, the xbone version doesn’t look as good as the PS4 version, as usual.

    • Psionicinversion

      PS4 version doesnt look as good as PC version…. same old same old :P

    • Xtreme Derp

      The “$800-1000 PC version”, maybe. Or by “PC” do you always mean something that consists of 5-10% of PCs at most? lol

    • Dakan45

      “do you always mean something that consists of 5-10% of PCs at most? lol”

      Hahahha yeah we do mean the 5-10% of ALL the pcs in the entire world.

      Now go cry in the corner mentaly ill fanboy.

    • Psionicinversion

      $800 destroys the PS4ail, and crying about it wont make that change. You say its $400 but sony is making a small loss on every console, every PC part has costs and profit for the seller added on so is more expensive.

      £30 watchdogs on PC, £48 on PS4+X1 this is where they get you over the lifetime you think its soooooooooo cheap but it fracking isnt in the long run!

      n000000bs

  • Broj

    This game is gonna be crap anyway.

    • Psionicinversion

      yeah go play your open world corridor shooter with infamous with its boring gameplay… woo shineys on screen your a like a magpie thats spotted a mirror dont worry the shine will wear off (unlike a magpie) and then youll be saying why are these games so rubbish ive realised watch dogs 150% awesome and i was wrong

    • Xtreme Derp

      Open world corridor? I want what you’re smoking.

    • Dakan45

      dumb as mentall ill fanboy.

    • Guest

      But its the only open world game coming out soon…

  • guest

    What’s the point of writing this article. The PlayStation footage that you were seeing was freaking PC footage from E3, with the newer trailers showing visual downgrades… Pathetic for click bait if you ask me

  • cozomel

    Whats up with all these devs always so afraid to tell the turth, always giving these vague a$$ answers. Grow some balls and give it to us straight or stfu.

    • Xtreme Derp

      They don’t want to jeopardize their Xbox sales even further by straight up admitting PS4 is superior. It’s just business.

    • Eagles83

      The PS4 version is already superior due to the exclusive content…..not sure why they would worry about a graphics comment. I’m just hoping the PC version isn’t downgraded to the level of the consoles. The 2012 trailer looked sweet but the most recent ones have been very lackluster.

    • Psionicinversion

      the 1 hour exclusive content for a 100 hour game with the potential of it being 500 hours through infinite mission generators, can feel the superiority already!

      or the superiority of the PC version being able to be modded to see some CRAZY detailed gfx? seen skyrim some of that stuff put infamous to shame… only on PC and its where its all at

    • Eagles83

      Well I was speaking about superiority as far as the consoles go. I’m with you in that I’ll be getting it on PC.

    • Psionicinversion

      well PS4 maybe getting slightly better gfx but the gameplay is where its at it look sbrilliant, a proper next gen game, see the division thats defo next gen… look at infamous pretty gfx but has a map dating back to GTA1 in the 90’s, semi next gen id call it, for the massive delay its a pathetic cus anyone can create pretty gfx the rest seems boring then again thats just mu opinion tbh

    • Eagles83

      I’m going to disagree on Infamous. I just finished the game playing the good side. I plan to go back down the evil path next but I enjoyed the game. The only negatives to it is that it lacks variety in the missions and locations because the city for the most part looks the same and you repeat the same missions for every section. Also the frame rate can chug pretty bad sometimes when many things are exploding but it only lasts a few seconds so it isn’t a huge deal. These complaints are fairly minor though and is one of the best next gen games thus far.

    • Dakan45

      yeah just admit the game is dwongraded and it will only look as good as e3 on pc.

  • Kam Williams

    More interested in what the game will look on PC. This gen everyone needs to just grab a gaming PC and get a PS4, XB1, or WiiU depending on which exclusives you want. Right now I’m going PC/XB1 because PS4’s exclusives don’t appeal to me but I can see someone going PC/PS4 as well.

  • Mike Hall

    the guy is sorta downplaying whatever graphics disparity exists between the x1 and ps4 by saying the animations are identical, but in all honesty, the spec sheet differences between the two machines, which every devoted PS4 fan loves to quote, really aren’t going to amount to much as this gen wears on.
    I fully expect the PS4 version to look better.. as in, ‘hey look, I think I see a couple more leafs on that tree or.. the cracks in that sidewalk have slightly better shading….
    In other words, the @#%$ measuring contest currently raging on game forums means absolutely nothing. Every cross-platform game yet to be released is going to look almost identical.
    So why keep arguing about it?

    • You are flat out wrong

      It’s a case of “please buy our game!” to Xbots after their backlash towards Metal Gear Solid Ground Zeroes.

    • Xtreme Derp

      720p to 1080p and 30 fps to 60 fps is “almost identical”? LOL No. The gap won’t close to the point where it’s “a couple more leafs on a tree”, you’re wrong.

      The fact PS4 is outselling Xboner almost 2:1 globally is evidence your opinion is sorely misguided and in the minority.

      epic thanks The first one doesnt show

      Here is one for you
      http://a.disquscdn.com/uploads/mediaembed/images/899/6479/original.jpg?w=800

    • Psionicinversion

      yeah think its to do with the hosting you could just save the picture to ya computer then put it on image shack or someat, itll prolly show then. That is a good picture, lmao…

      derps bin banging on about price/performance but trying show him that difference in prices in games is alot. If your took watchdogs, MGS5, infamous, witcher 3 and order should cost about £225, if they were on PC it would prolly cost about £140 so that £85 difference add that on to the console youve paid £435… you buy another 5 full price games costing about £250 with approx £95-100 price difference add that to the console youve just paid £535 and for what…. some bag of $hit in a box. Its like free to play they give you the game in the hopes you spend more money than the game would of sold at. Sony/MS give you the console at cost price/slightly making a loss then making back tons and tons more money, alot more money than the thing is worth. Alot of fanboys will end up spending money to the tune of the console costing about £1000 over its life time

      Sony fanboys are stupid pathetic unknowledgable fools that love getting butt fcked…. hey heres some $hitty VR headset $300 please and hey this game comes with VR support thats an extra $10-20 ont top of the retail price…. bend over some more will ya i cant quite get it all in!!!!

    • Psionicinversion

      replied ot myself lol

    • Dikan45

      Why so bitter? Each platform has their great games regardless of power, I own a more than decent pc but spend more of my time playing games on my ps4 and xone instead! I’ve never understood people who like to think of themselves as gamers not owning as many platforms as they can afford to, why limit yourself to one platform and miss out on some excellent games? Makes no sense! I know several anti sony fanboys who game on bravia tvs yet do nothing but slag sony off on forums!! Do you also refuse to watch movies made by Columbia Pictures too?(I bet you’ve watched and enjoyed a movie made by them and didn’t even know about it!) You better check you don’t own any of their movies and throw them out if you do, you wouldn’t want to be a hypocrite would you?

    • Psionicinversion

      the point is many of these idiots like derp, say omg price/performance of consoles is better than PC’s its not really this gen there basically being sold around cost price then have an upto 60% markup on games over PC to get there money back. and youd spend alot more in the life cycle in terms of games than you would on PC game sales. You take the difference in price on every game and add it to the console and that is what the console manufacturers are actually charging you…. its less noticeable doing it that way than say charging you $600 instead of $400 up front and keeping the games cheap. simple as that

    • Dakan45

      Psst remember what i told you? I saw you upvoting xderp post on dsogaming, i told you to stop being an arshole and you dont listen to me.

    • Dikan45

      NOBODY tells me who I can and can’t agree with! GET THAT IN YOUR HEAD NOW!!

    • Dakan45

      I find it funny that i find you upvoting comments only on articles i post with the guy wih is insulting me.

      So yeah i am on to you , now get THAT in your tiny head you pathetic troll.

    • Dikan45

      I’m not getting into it with you because you aren’t worth anymore of my time! I’ve seen how you conduct yourself and it’s shameful the way you and your little tribe address people just for owning a particular piece of plastic of wires! It’s disgusting and you all deserve to be banned, (telling people to kill themselves and all agreeing with the comment) I haven’t trolled anyone nor do I intent to and as far as proving my name to you, why should I do somebody I don’t like any favours? I POST WHAT I WANT, TO WHO I WANT, WHEN I WANT!(SAME GOES FOR WHO I AGREE OR DISAGREE WITH) You either accept that and move on or you don’t and stay ‘butthurt’ as you put it! GET THAT IN YOUR HEAD!!(or don’t, either way I don’t care) END OF CHAT!!

    • Dakan45

      YOu did it again, stop upvoting comments that insult me, or i will report you to disquss and you WILL get banned, stop impersonating me.

      NO YOU WONT DO WHAT YOU WANT, GET TAHT IN YOUR THICK HEAD.

      Stop it now or i will stalk you and hunt you down.

      Get it?

      Stop appearing everywhere and stop impersonating me.

    • Psionicinversion

      This is what’ll happen when PS Now streaming rubbish fails

      http://funfive.net/pictures/images/PSN%20hacked.jpg

  • You are flat out wrong

    No sh*t. It’s a last gen game so it has to run well on eight year old hardware, of course it’s going to be identical in terms of fidelity on current gen consoles. Same with Wolfenstein and Alien Isolation.

    This is only really news if you haven’t been paying attention.

    • Dakan45

      But but the downgrade…but but ubi said that there are no compromises due to last gen.

      It will be fun to see how the game looks on launch.

  • Dakan45

    “Ubisoft are yet to showcase actual gameplay footage on the Xbox One version of the game.”

    “Colin Graham who is working on Watch_Dogs as an animation director
    believes that both versions are identical. ”They look pretty much the
    same from what I can tell. On the animation side they are identical”

    So is the downgrade real or not? Do they really look identical? who knows.

    ubisoft lies alot when it comes to their games and promises though.
