GS News - PS4 So Powerful It Gave Watch Dogs Dev A “Chance To Dream”

How is the PS4 blowing the socks off the Watch Dogs devs? What did a gamer do to cause $25,000 in damage? And would you forgive EA’s mistakes?

Gettin it on PS4. might look a little better on PC but I imagine the multiplayer will be hacked within 3 days, still unclear as too what all we can expect from watchdogs multiplayer tho

Oh, but the PC never gave you a chance to dream? Huh...

xbots are so butthurt, maybe the Ubi dev meant that the PS4 allows him to dream, becuase its next gen and go allow so much more than last gen.

And since the x1 is not quite up to the task, he didnt even mentioned at all, to avoid the superprotective fanboys flame...

They were dreaming they can produce what was showed at E3! I REALLY hope it looks as good, but from the recent trailers it really looks like they took a few steps backward graphically. Still picking it up though, game looks fun as hell.

Its easy to play "If I was there..." from the sidelines and that guy would've taken a paycheck like DICE did. He's full of it.

Ahh Jess I would twitter your comment section any day! And didn't the ps4 get watchdogs as a timed content exclusive? That's just like jenson button saying something good about mclaren.

We all know that the ps4 is the better gaming console just like the xbox is the better media player, we need to end this console war kids are dieing on the streets!

EA took every franchise I played growing up and systematically killed them. Command and Conquer, Wing Commander, Ultima, and the list goes on from there. You get the point though. Look at how mass effect changed when ea got their hands on it. It went from a rpg to a glorified fps. Dragons age just went straight to the scrapheap.


EA needs to go to the scrapheap now.

$25,000 in damage, lol! That is the kind of kid, I imagine, anytime anybody whines about EA being the worst company in existence.

Sooooooooo tell me Ubisoft, this wouldn't have anything to do with the fact that you're planning to make a Watchdogs movie which will be distributed by Columbia Pictures, which just happens to be OWNED by Sony?  So lame Ubisoft, you've lost my respect.

in regards to PS3 the PS4 surly is socketing ... I developed for the Systems, its sad but PS3 was inferior to X360, so its no wonder they react like this on sonys new machine ...


but when you compare to PC, alone by the physical numbers like Transistor Count of the processors, consoles can never reach the Performance of sophisticated computers ...


btw: this site is about games, go to xhamster instead ... jezzz

I think EA should stop trying to make games for all genres and focus on a type or 2

then maybe their games would start to improve

Variety reports that Ubisoft is developing a Watch Dogs film, along with Assassin's CreedFar Cry, and Raving Rabbids films.[51] Sony announced at their 2013 Gamescom press conference that Ubisoft will work with Columbia Pictures and New Regency to make the film, Sony will distribute the film in the US and 20th Century Fox will handle the international distribution rights.[52]

Well every PS4 owner including myself knew from the start that the PS4 was way more powerful than the Xbox one could ever be. The Xbox one will never be as powerful as the PS4.

All I know is i'm getting sick of the PC talk...

We get it, PCs are powerful and the best thing ever made... I have a gaming PC. The word PC wasn't in the article,why try compairing?

Devs Praise the PS4, The PC fanboys gather to bash it...

Ever think maybe Devs are tired of soo much mixed hardware?? One PC runs it great, the other guy spams devs email cause his Shitty PC keeps crashing...

How about Devs make one version of the game for PS4 and... WOW EVERY PS4 RUNS IT EXACTLY THE SAME!!!!

We understand PCs are powerful, nobody said they weren't. .. but a console is more efficient to develope for as they are all the same, get it???

And FYI PC fans... DDR5 has twice the bandwidth as PCs DDR3 there is slightly more latency, but once devs get it down, it will be very effective. And yes, I know it's GDDR5 shared memory. .. but it's still DDR5 for the SYSTEM.

@hole2score You fail to see the advantage a console has over a PC.  Yes PC's have better graphics, and will always have better graphics.  However, a PC that costs the same as one of the new consoles when you buy will probably have the same spec levels.  The one thing that separates that is the new games released years down the road on PC's will be spec'd to maximize the newer PC hardware than what you currently have.  It basically means that you will need to spend a lot now on the PC to make it future proof for about a ten year life span, where as the console doesn't need to have that happen.  The console you bought at release will still play new games released years down the road at max resolution and max visual fidelity where as on the PC you will probably have to reduce resolution and visual settings with older hardware.  Its a tradeoff both ways, power means constant upkeep for the PC and limited hardware specs but future proofing for the life of the console for any console really.


Each system has its advantages and disadvantages.  The same argument goes to both Sony and Microsoft.  Each company marketed their product in the exact specified manner that they wanted it as.  The Xbox One is a system designed as gaming system with a heavily integrated media unit that can function as an all in one really, you can setup your TV through it, play games and watch Blu-ray movies with out having to switch video settings or plug and unplug stuff.  The PS4 can do some of that but it is more of a harder core gaming system.  Both systems have merit and really if you want 1 or both systems then you will buy both.  I haven't bought any of them since they are not backwards compatible, meaning that you will still have the xbox360 and ps3 still setup to play those games and the up and coming games can play on both if a lower visual abilities on those system, I don't care about that.  I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of people buy both systems.

@croxus  Dream of what?? dulling down the graphics from E3? Wake up fanboy, Im a PS4 owner but its not a super computer it has limitations. That stupit ass article was ripped from a biased blog so quoting it makes you look like a clown..... Almost as big of a clown as this website for putting it on here for clicks, and fanboy wars.

@coolguyhero  I don't think they're too concerned about saving Xbox when they're running around making stupid comments like this.  How do you think this will affect the sales of the X1?  "Hey everybody, buy the PS4 version of our game cause it's better, don't bother with the X1 version."  From a business standpoint, total idiocy.  They just went from potentially 10 million copies sold to 6 max.  I can appreciate exclusivity deals like the 4 extra missions, but don't go around telling everyone which one is better, let them decide after they buy it.

@coolguyhero Stupid fan boy comment... If you've played any of the X1 exclusives you would find out they are better than anything out on the PS4, with ISS being the only saving grace. X1 doesn't need saving, but Ps4 does need good games.

@jerjef  01:38 I dont know, the explanation seems pretty solid, and Im guessing they r set up to prove themselves right once Watchdogs is released tomorrow. then we all 'll be able to see for ourselves.


dont worry, ubisoft doesnt care about losing the respect of a fanboy like yourself. 


PS


not crazy about this game though :P

@jerjef  Nobody is as big of a shill as Ubisoft. Ubi's one of game's biggest talkers. They actually have a TON of potential, but always take the action which ends up wasting that potential. It's sad. Like asking Beethoven to compose and play a beautiful symphony right after breaking all his fingers.

What r u talking about dude? Playstation is soooo powerful that the xbox graphics r the same or better in some games. Please stop making this a fan boy discussion.

I love playstation and I'm a playstation fan no matter what but call it how it is'n

@TheExxorcist But developers developed those games on developer PCs, right? And if the PC keeps on crashing, maybe the user does not maintain his PC. Maybe virus infected.

Everyone knows that the latest consoles have fixed hardware requirements. And the PC can do more than a console can, especially ultra high graphics and mods.

It is still a choice of the gamer. But I prefer PC because it is mind-blowing, and still I play my WiiU at home if I want some exercise.

Please respect each gamers' right to choose, ok?

@TheExxorcist Everytime you say something good about the console graphic. A PC bastard i the prowl looking for a reason to jump in. We already know PC can do this and that. No need to be a moron and tell us something that we already know.

@rob9999991 @coolguyhero  Quantity does not mean quality. All microsoft exclusives have been rushed in a desperate attempt to give the illusion of a strong line up, as for 3rd party console games, they look best on PS4, better framerate means better control as well. If xbox  wants to stand a chance they need to drop the kinnect and sell the console for what its worth, about 350 usd

@poopoohed  Ubisoft may not care about MY respect, but they certainly would care about the respect of 4-5 million other gamers who own an X1 and were just slapped in the face by a company who just said the competitor is better when obviously it's showing a severe case of financial favouritism and bias.  If they were an exclusive developer for the PS4 it would be a different situation, but this was just plain stupid.  You don't bash a console that you develop for and rely on for revenue.  


I certain will not lose any sleep by not buying Watchdogs and I'm sure a lot of other X1 gamers will feel the same way, especially since the graphic drop, that they are still denying.  Assassins Creed has been going downhill as well, so another $60 saved for me.

@simon1812  I wouldn't so much argue with the PS4 being more powerful than the X1, the numbers can answer that question.  That's not what's silly about their comment.  It's that this game was initially developed for high end PCs with the game being ported to the consoles and yet they say the PS4 allowed them to dream?  lol, wtf?

You need to stop smoking crack and commenting on sites Los! What games look better on the xbox? Everyone knows devs set the bar to the lowest spec machined for porting reason in this case the xbone.stop being a joke

@PeejayYeh You must admit it's generally the PC fans the one that found a feeling of superiority by playing on PC (It's already quite stupid to feel superior for playing games itself, let alone a specific system) and like to boast about it all the time. The guy has a point there. I play in every system and I'm already tired of being unable to have a decent chat about games because some immature idiot feels the need to bash XOne, PS4 or talk about how awesome his new rig is.

@DEATH775 @TheExxorcist not just that, they act like their from pc world and we don't have one.Everyone here has a pc, nothing special. one of the biggest reasons i bought a ps4 is for exclusive's and sports games....good luck finding a good sports game for pc. hockey, boxing, football to name a few.

@Warlord_Irochi As I said it is a matter of gamer choice. Boasting someone's new rig should be another story, especially ones with the new NVIDIA vcard. Can't we just hear any gamer story here without creating an aura of ridiculous pride?

I'm a staunch PC gamer, since I have a great hardware to play with. My other choices are XBOX360 and WiiU, that's what I have at home. I can give my PC a break and play those with my family and friends.

Can we just all play nicely here?
