You can't really blame Sony? They're doing everything in their power to make cows think the PS4 is equal to the PC. And considering this forum, they're succeeding.

It's not Sony. it's just Ubisoft being Ubisoft.

It's to let the cows believe their purchase was justified. "Supercharged PC" is something that Sony advertised about, they can't let people think otherwise so early in the next-generation.

No, I kinda agree. Ubisoft could deliberately gimp PC version to create the impression of false parity between PC and PS4.

Watchdogs looked like shit on all 3 platforms compared to the the original e3 reveal.

It's still not even close, the geometry isn't even correct nor are the animations.

UBI kinda hates PC, they might have done it themselves ;)

At least the settings are still there.

i wouldn't really put it pass ubisoft to do something this shady. It is very odd that somehow the "lead platform" of a game gets weird performance issues. Ubisoft could have just stated that to try and make good with the PC community

There is some massive stretching going on here.

I think it's more likely that Ubisoft is just incompetent, we've seen it before after all with Cracked Exe's circumventing bullshit DRM and making the game even more stable.

Either way Ubisoft is trash so I'm glad to see them getting called out, we still haven't received a patch for the pc version that stutter is still there.

Development was probably rushed so they could start working on day one DLC and season pass content.

Or maybe it's because it sold a pitiful 180k and they don't care about the platform.

Watchdogs 2,3 and 4 are already in the works, at the same time.

This time you get to use google glass.

PR bullsh!t.. A) If the rates are so high why are they still forcing pc gamers to use their POS copywrite system which hinders legitimate purchasers then it clearly does for pirates.. And B) Why do they continue releasing games for the PC if the numbers are so high? I always hear constantly the threat of piracy in how it's "killing" the industry.. Yet all these companies are growing and each game has a bigger budget with greater PR campaigns than the last..

this is really crazy, the internal files say things lie "e3 this" "e3 that" the game they built for e3 (a much better game than the one built for ps4) is still there, but we cant see it, but the performance is still crappy for no reason

thats the only way the ps4 can win over my U$400 PC

PS4 can't compete to PC in the graphics department. No denial there. But Sony exclusives are really great making a Sony console a worthwhile investment. I do agree that some sony fans can be crazy at times:P

Or they could have gimped the PC version because they couldnt be bothered implementing things we've seen on last-gen consoles(GTA4/5) onto the new ones. Instead of making themselves look lazy they gimp PC down to console. We've seen reflections from headlights in GTA on last-gen, we've seen explosions, we've seen bullets create splashes when fired into water, we've seen all that already last-gen and thats why I suspect Ubisoft of actually gimping the consoles. The PC was a casualty of that.

And so can the PC fans.

The Hyperbole some hermits are known to throw around is sickening. Even if I identify with being a pc gamer it's not hard to see that.

Between this and the Uplay download/verification issues on launch day, PC gamers have had a really rough time with this title. Worst launch I've ever experienced.

In my opinion, Sony may be considering PC to be more rival to PS4 than Xbox One. At least, Sony may be trying to create the impression of parity between PC and PS4 because the main selling point of PS4 is currently 1080p gaming. Xbox One is obviously out of this struggle. So Sony sees PC as a real menace to PS4 sales and therefore could deliberately influence Ubisoft to gimp PC version of Watch dogs. It won't be the first time when Sony makes deals with Ubisoft.

LOL, awards. All Crysis games where the best graphical games for their time. If anything, consoles might be able to match them thanks to new hardware.

But as always, in 1-2 years, max, some game, probably Star Citizen in 2016-17, will put it to rest.

Doesn't surprise me as one of the upper execs in Ubisoft said if PC gamers aren't happy with their optimization just "buy better GPU's".

They're turning into the next EA.
