I am a console gamer, as a result I realise I am not getting the premium graphical experience I could be getting on the PC. I make this little sacrifice because high end graphics isnt my main motivation but to willingly choose to game on a console and moan about FPS and graphics seems ridiculous.
This is why I have to laugh at the 1080p fiasco. I dont care for it, I pick the console with the best games and a pleasant UI and run with it. When I can get absolute true to life graphics will i shell out money on a high end rig. Until then I play games not graphics.
@drekula2: You must read what i got to say, its important.
Remember aliens colonial marines? Well that game was made on a pc on e3 and they found out later that the ps3 version was well out of memory so they had to tone down everything.
Now on watchdogs? Take a look at e3 far cry 3, now take a look at future soldier. ubisoft games never manage to look as good as e3. Watchdogs on E3 had weapon animations, you know the guns spit empty shells, in the actual game they removed that among many other things. They said in interviews that the delay helped them to get everything they wanted into the game when that couldnt be further from the true.
A ac3 dev said that he didnt even know the game had lockpicking. There are so many people working on games these days and multiple studios that the final result is a badly handled mess. Too many people touch the game and they dont know exactly what each other is suppose to do with it. Watch dogs was a development mess with bad management, but because games have gone so big lately, you can expect such things to happen on next gen as well. They obviously tone down stuff to make the game run on last gen versions...which suprisingly didng bring em much cash. But they still could keep those things in the next gen version. Watchdog perfomance is bad on all systems due to the last gen or the bad management of the project.
I am being very carefull with far cry 4, it doesnt have alot of coverage/info and its also on last gen, which makes me thing the budget and the development for this game is much smaller than watchdogs and can bring another mess, hope not.
In fact, a lot of publishers reveal a game running on a super high end PC to get that "OMG, those graphics!!!" reaction from gamers. And then when the actual product rolls out, it doesn't compare at all. But Ubisoft? They do it all the time.
The problem is that gaming has become a business. For some reason gamers want 20 games every year and then complain that developers milk franchises. Devs announce games too early and then have to postpone the release date because they realize that they need more time, while gamers whine that it's taking too long and then whine again when they release half assed games.
The thing is you have to think of games like Watch_Dogs as last gen ports, because that is what it is. There is no way they started developing it on next gen hardware, sure they could have chosen not to release in on PS4/XOne but they want your monies. I suppose you could make the argument they should have developed it for PC first then ported it to PS4/Xone as the architecture is so close anyway and left PS3/360/WiiU out of it.
Developers should only focus on PS4/Xbox One/PC and phase out the weaker hardware that is holding them back. I understand releasing some games for a quick easy cheap buck like they did with the Wii but the industry needs to grow and progress.
Don't fvcking preorder games.. Plain and simple people.. If we didn't have so many jackasses preordering games because they are gullible enough to buy into the PR bullsh!t, we wouldn't have extremely misleading pr campaigns like Watchdogs, Alien Colonial Marines, Rome 2 Total War.. Seriously there is no reason to preorder games, your only pushing the message to these companies that they can skimp on the game if they push a multi million dollar ad spree in to create hype.. This is the internet phase, nothing is stopping you from WAITING a matter of days after release to see what reviewers of all levels think of the game.. And it's not like suddenly after a bad game is released the consumer becomes smart.. I literally facepalmed at the disaster release of Rome 2 with long time fans complaining of the release when the company has a HUGE track record of releasing broken games.. Yet they some how acted shocked and betrayed, it was hilarious.
