We also compare the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions.
As with every AAA game out there we first do an initial test followed by a full blown tech analysis. After Wolfenstein: The New Order, next on our list is Watch Dogs. In this initial test we have compare the same scene across the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Xbox One versions [PC will be tested in our final verdict]. But instead of inserting screens, we have published high quality GIFS [the most popular media format ever since the new consoles were announced!]
Around two weeks back, Ubisoft confirmed that Watch Dogs will run at 900p resolution on the PS4, and 792p on the Xbox One. Both the versions run at 30fps. The PS4 and Xbox One version also employ a custom AA solution, Ubisoft confirmed to GamingBolt. On closer inspection the Xbox One version seems to have vibrant colors and better black, the PS4 on the other seems to have the perfect balance and better anti-aliasing. The last gen versions on the other hand are pretty similar to each other although the level of detail is downgraded. But it’s still amazing that the last gen versions do hold up against the new versions pretty well.
Watch Dogs will release on May 27th across the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360. For more on the game check out hub page here.
Note: Each of the GIFs below are 20 seconds long so they will take a bit of time to load. Here is hoping that you are on broadband.
