Commence damage control in advance if it's really 720p

If its 720p on the PS4, I dread to think what the X1 is going to get.

... I fear for the PC version. Its ubisoft and they'll simply port it.

Liked this comment.

"This is either a mistake, or purposely done as a mockery to the people who file lawsuits over resolution.

Imagine taking Sony or Ubisoft to court because you expected Assassin's Creed Unity to be at 720p and instead it was at 1080p. The hilarity. If I were the judge I'd laugh that out of court myself."

LOL

#9 Posted by melonfarmerz (1151 posts) -

lol if this is true. Not even a year in and 1080p 60fps is all but a fantasy.

#10 Posted by Gaming-Planet (14021 posts) -

480p on xbox one.

Just link to the actual article: http://gamingbolt.com/assassins-creed-unity-may-run-at-720p-on-the-ps4

And it says they are targeting 1080p for both

If that starts to happen it is because MS is demanding console parity and paying to have it happen. They are probably telling MS that their machine is too under powered to achieve 1080p and MS is saying if you make the PS4 match our crap box we will pay you.

Stupid lems.

First off, LOL @ N4G. True link below.

Source

The basis of the story is the AC4 product page on Sony's PS webstore. Advertising 1080p has become a sticking-point for consumers and - in light of recent objections - Sony is likely just staying mum until Ubi gives them the all clear.

If true, though, the question why is even more intriguing. Hardware limitation or obligatory platform parity? Uncertain whether or not I should protest by not purchasing a game intentionally gimped or limited by a developer/publisher.

This is the inevitable response for any PS4+resolution thread on SW. It must be hell having to work on MS' Xbone PR team.

It's a Conspiracy!

Must have something to do with Wash Dogs.

Lol what a blurry, unplayable mess that would be.

lol if true

#20 Posted by farrell2k (5864 posts) -

Doesn't surprise me. The ps4 is mid just about range pc hardware. My fx6300 and r9 270 struggles to hit 60fps in black flag. Unity will be even worse.

Everything you posted is a hypothetical thing happening in your mind. But the Lems are stupid? Get some meds.

#22 Posted by scottpsfan14 (4855 posts) -

I'm pretty sure that's minimum requirements for TV. But if it is 720p that's just laughable.

Thats what you get for trusting Ubisoft.

targeting 1080p and 60fps?

it's not even feasible to think a developer would go from 1080 to 720 in resolution if their target was 60fps. Something doesn't sound right about that. At minimal they would drop to 900p and still hit 60frames not more than double the resolution.

Either a typo or they are doing some under the table leveling to make the games on consoles play equally, if so I wouldn't even consider buying.

#25 Edited by silversix_ (14331 posts) -

I'd like this to be true so Ubi gets a metric tone of shit for this.

be prepared to play not a lot this gen if this is what is going to happen.

It'll be 1080p on PS4.

sup-par products don't deserve my money and would be a waste so nothing will be lost. I don't play games because I feel I am obligated to play them, I play them when and if they can provide the experience and enjoyment of something that has worth to me.

I went most of last gen not playing games that a lot of people cling to like COD and madden because I didn't see value in it as a game experience and regret nothing.

It seems unlikely.

#36 Edited by YD_11 (1780 posts) -

Haha what a meltdown this would cause among cows since resolution has pretty much been the most important part of a game for them for some time now

#37 Posted by Blabadon (26166 posts) -

Give me 60 FPS first please. That sounds glorious in Assassin's Creed.

#38 Posted by jsmoke03 (12871 posts) -

ive given up on the whole 1080p thing on consoles lol.

#39 Edited by hoosier7 (3784 posts) -

It won't be, i'd put money on it just being a placeholder/mistake as it was with Watchdogs. At least this time they had the sense to take a punt on 720p rather than 1080p to avoid to stupid rabble that forms if it's wrong.

Wouldn't be surprised, can't expect too much from a tablet processor.

#43 Posted by super600 (30537 posts) -

That would be pretty horrible if true, but I doubt this game will run at that resolution.

Ubisoft made some of the best ports ever... Far Cry 3, Watch Dogs, and most of the AC series...

Then of course there's Uplay. Fuck that.

Another Ubisoft Downgrade

#46 Posted by Bigboi500 (29690 posts) -

Ok maybe not true 1080p, but closer to it than 720p.

#48 Posted by hehe101 (769 posts) -

If you have a problem get a PC and get over it PS4 isn't as powerful as you all think. Xbox has started doing 1080p nothing really to boast about.

#49 Posted by BldgIrsh (2330 posts) -

@parkurtommo: Watch_Dogs wasn't a good port. AC had problems where the controls for the keyboard were horrid. Can't say much about farcry.

@Shielder7 : You said something about envy? lol

Wow you hermits really have it out for me, I must be getting to you I don't even have to post and you go after me LoL.

But I'll bite what am I supposed to be envious of?
