What 'gamer' would even think about playing this on a console anyway.
They could have been 480p and it would be fine. It's only the PC version that concerns us.
It's time to write off these consoles as viable main platforms they're falling too far behind for their ridiculous fees.

Yeeeesh. Still a heavy rumor though. The guys at GAF aren't even posting this yet since they are waiting for more credible sources to confirm this rumor.

Why did you need to make two separate threads about this when there was already one thread discussing both of the games?

let me guess.. stable 20frames per second is next! ewwwwwwwwwwww

How are they dealing with save transfers on the PS4 and One? Are we just using getting a list of decisions to make?

#11 Posted by TwistedShade (3149 posts) -

Anyway this will definitely be a PC game for me, will be one of those games that I'm sure will test my 780 for once.

What a great start of the week for xboners.

We all know the PS4 is THE place for console mulit plats. I guess it's nice to get validation for every game.

#15 Posted by zeeshanhaider (2412 posts) -

The powah of the next gen. Very soon you will be hearing the lazy dev excuse or the resolution don't matter.

If its 900p on PS4 what a fail. They said it will look identical to pc version (i understand its marketing but 720p isn't anywhere NEAR identical lolol) and we see 720p? hahaha. I bet Dragon Age 3 is also 720p on the bone and 900p on ps4, fk this im getting both on pc, no way im playing another blurry mess a la BF4.

Where does it not say it's identical?

Just put the PC version at 900p and boom It is Identical to the PC version.

Good thing the PC version isn't tainted

The game is probably running on medium with couple of settings like particles on high. How can you even compare that to Ultra and call it identical? Add 720p/900p to the mix and its like 1 gen behind. Then add mods to the pc version and it becomes unfair to even compare.

Just stop. Its going to be 900p at 30 fps. That alone is a big difference.

Lets not even get into reduced quality settings.

So another generation of consolites arguing over who got the nicest smelling piece of shit when it comes to multiplats. More things change the more they stay the same.

#25 Edited by edwardecl (2099 posts) -

Do the Xbox One owners have to psych themselves up with every new game release and pray they at least get 900p... then get depressed/angry when the 720p/792p(wtf) bomb gets dropped. I don't think I could take it.

Then you have Hideo Kojima being a total troll by first saying it's the same don't worry, then saying a slight difference then boom 720p. Trollolololol.

I don't know, it's pretty disappointing to find out that 3 new PS4 games can't do 60FPS despite cows saying that is necessary when Tomb Raider did it, and it's also disappointing that Witcher can't even do 1080p standard.

................Not being able to do 60 FPS on an exclusive game for your console is understandable, perhaps the games graphics or technical abilities pushed it to the point where some sacrifices had to be made; but generally speaking, all those games you're trying to point out MOST LIKELY have been rendered at 1080p.

Where as, we have certain exclusive games for a console rendered at 900p, or 720p; and the frame rate is only 30 fps, and sometimes 60 fps. But take note, there is that ONE GAME that is hitting 1080p/60 fps as a launch title - but even then, it was achieved by severe graphical downgrade and removal of certain technical capabilities that was supposedly "revealed" as "real-time graphics" to the unaware public.

But what's WORSE, and this is the part YOU DONT UNDERSTAND, is IF a multiplat is CAPABLE of hitting 1080p/60fps on a specific console, but another console - of the same generation, and at a higher price - cant render the same 1080p/60fps; then it is a bad sign that the core hardware of that console may very well be, lacking.

I hope that it clears up some confusion you, or anyone, may have.

I'm looking forward to The Witcher 3. Resolution be damned, lol.

#30 Posted by juarbles (801 posts) -

Once again the PS4 demonstrates that it is the face of real gaming in consoles. xboners get the low tier crap that they deserve for being anti-gamers.

playstation fanboys showing a double standard?

that's 'par for the course'.

Only if resolution matters to you. For me I could give less than a shit. I've played the hell out of Titanfall beta at 792p and loved it. The PS4 is superior to the One in specs and its clear. I stand by the claim that both systems will continue to get optoimized like hell and games will look better, but there will always be a gap performance wise. Game quality wise is subjective as I feel the One is well ahead of the PS4 there. But resolution wise I'm seeing 900p for Watch Dogs and Thief and 720 for Witcher. All 3 look like quality games, but I'm not giving up Halo and Gears of War and Quantum Break so that I can play the same game at a higher resolution.

Could care less. Hopefully the game play and story are good.

#35 Posted by seanmcloughlin (38214 posts) -

Thankfully I have a beast PC to play it maxed out at 1200p so I don't really care. But 900p isn't THAT bad.

It's been all round bad news for the X1 in comparisons these last few days though

#36 Edited by tdkmillsy (1273 posts) -

This looks about right and will be the normal going forward.

Don't see what the big deal is, if you bought a setup for resolution you would get a PC.

You cannot see the difference on anything less than 65" at normal viewing conditions.

Anyone buying a PS4 over Xbox One just for the resolution is talking shit.

You buy it for the games and the best game this year will be Titanfall and unless you want a PC the Xbox One is the only place to play it at its best.

I can tell the difference between 720 and 1080 on my 23" monitor and 60" TV. After 4k you will need a pretty big TV to see the difference.

Totally agree about console resolutions though, if you really cared, you would be on PC. There is just no question about it.

Majority of gamers probably don't know anything about resolutions.

I find the difference fairly obvious, especially in games with long render distances, it makes a difference in BF4 for me and will probably be the same for Watchdogs and other open world games.

I don't think anyone actually cares about the resolution, it's more the point that the cheaper console is running games better and is looking like it will be consistently the better console for multiplats for the foreseeable future. I think that's pretty fair to be honest.

LOL PS4 can't do more then 900p LMAO!!!

#44 Edited by Speak_Low (927 posts) -

This is why you don't see me in the resolution threads gloating. I'm mostly Cow but I would look stupid laughing at launch X1 games when the PS4 has its own limitations with games too it seems, lol

Also (just my belief) - I think X1 will start achieving better resolution as the years go by and devs become more familiar with the hardware (because PS3 went through the same inferior multiplats at one point and I remember lots of laughing at Sony).

I am not saying X1 is as powerful as PS4 because the hardware specs already show that PS4 leads it by a couple good stone throws. But these same specs also show the X1 isn't that far behind, like it's from an entirely different generation. Some are already saying it's closer to Wii U's power. Give me a break! It's not as powerful as PS4 but it's not that crappy either.

Both PS4 and X1 will get better resolution and performance in the next two years, but PS4 will have higher amount of 1080p/60fps. Only trouble for both consoles I could see happening is if the games get too complex with procedural stuff and crazy next-gen effects - and that could make 1080p/60fps hard to achieve, even for PS4

#45 Posted by silversix_ (14038 posts) -

@silversix_: bf4 is hardly a blurry mess on ps4

its blurry as hell, not a mess but crappy looking. 900p+post processing AA and we go some blurry action going on

#47 Posted by zekere (2509 posts) -

900p is good enough for my console, that said, I think I'll go for the PC version, where 1080p is a must

#48 Posted by GTSaiyanjin2 (5800 posts) -

The only 900p game I have played on the PS4 is BF4, and that looked really good to me. Again resolution does not matter to me when I play on consoles. I can only really see the difference when I game on the PC, where I always want to have a native res, or else the picture takes a huge hit in PQ.

#49 Posted by millerlight89 (18347 posts) -

@silversix_: it's not blurry. Witj the amount of bs you let out on this site you think you would run out. Yet, you never do. Amazing
