Quit getting your news directly from Sony Gamespot, and it wouldn't take a genius to figure out that either "Next Gen" console couldn't handle a game of this type at 1080P AND 60FPS. How people are actually JUST NOW suprised the PS4 is only marginally better that the X1 shows Sony has an amazing marketing team. Get a PC if you care about graphics kids.

Ubisoft has confirmed that Watchdogs is only 900p and only 30fps. Gamespot is wrong again hahahah! Sony lies and some fangirl I know believes it....

PS4 Watch Dogs 59,99€ and PC Watch Dogs 39,99€ that's easy decision to make and yes that PC version is physical and comes with one of the day one DLC packs, so it's even more value and let's not forget it's actually 1080p @ 60fps!

Every thought I've ever had?

It sure is dark in here, and everything sounds so muffled. Why am I upside down? What's that light? OMG who is this strange man in a white coat and why is he holding me... You know what, I'd better skip to my most recent thought. Ooh, Jess is wearing that frilly red shirt, she looks fantastic in that.

And then its not 1080p 60fps, that would be hilarious!!

you are exactly correct. Ubisoft confirmed today that it will be 900 on ps4 and 720 on Xbox one.

Apparently, the PS4 experience eclipses the PC.... I love consoles, but that is just a joke of a statement. Also, if I have to play any game using dual shock, then the experience is already significantly flawed. I loved the Last of Us, but the controls really helped kill the experience.

@dani_i89 It doesn't take a genius to figure out that statement was about the consoles and had nothing to do with the p.c. Obviously the p.c. version will have better graphics if your hardware is good enough. The only thing I prefer to play with a keyboard is first person games and MMOs. Otherwise the "experience," for me at least, is not "significantly flawed." As you suggest. Some people enjoy fps games with a controller more. They are no more wrong than you or I. Some of you guys seem to forget how opinions work...

@dani_i89 Wait... are you quoting somebody with that "PS4 experience eclipses the PC" statement? Who'd be dumb enough (or fanboy enough) to say that?

I'm essentially quoting Sony. It's why I said it's a joke of a statement. They must have removed that bit because theyou probably actually realized Watch Dogs is on pc as well.

@dani_i89 Nothing wrong with the dualshock. DS4 is great and DS3 is best controller ever made. The Last of Us controls just were bad.

Best controller ever made? It was outdated on the ps2, there was no reason for the same design to be continued on the ps3. It's not ergonominc, too small and is not built specifically for human hands, there are no triggers, thumbs slip off the sticks and stick sensitivity sucks . It's just a cheap piece of plastic with buttons. Xbox nails it's controller and puts dual shock to severe shame.

@dani_i89 I like the ds3, but I know lots of people don't, have you tried the ds4? it seems to address the things about the last controller that people didn't like, I haven't heard many complaints.

Definitely picking up Watch Dog's for PS4 when it comes out. Looking forward to it!

I've already made the decision that if a game is out on last gen i.e. 360 or PS3, I'll be buying it on there. I am not paying £340 - £380 for a console for hardly any games and an increase in graphics which isn't all that profound at the moment anyway.

I'll buy next gen when there is a game I MUST have that can only be found on that platform. Witcher 3 might be that since I can no longer play it on my PC and I'm not upgrading just for one game.

"Drop every thought"


This is a slow day on the commenting section, so you asked for it and you'll get it.


How does Jess feel most appreciated? In what best ways Jess likes to receive appreciation and love.


What makes Jess most happy?? What ways can Jess' fans can make Jess most happy?


"If he/they love me, they will just know. . ." big fallacy.


A married woman at work jumped all over my case today saying (telling me not really asking me) "why aren't you married" , "it makes no sense that I'm not married", "how come you're not married?", "You very cute, a great guy and very nice." I was on a quick break and my supervisor was listening in so I just said I didn't know, but I was married in spirit a few times many years ago before the worst happened once and life happened the other times.


But I'm available for Jess. Jess, please take as a compliment.

@SaintsRowLA Listen, I know that you're probably a good person, but from the comments you post here every day, it seems that you're really obsessed with Jess and the things you say are often quite creepy. Imagine being in her place, how would you feel if some stranger was constantly writing comments like that about you?

@Zombie97 @SaintsRowLA

Now that I have more time I'm going to respond to you.


"how would you feel if some stranger was constantly writing comments like that about you?"

I have had people write very nice things about me and I was very complimented. I always responded with a thank you and let the person know I appreciated it.



Yes, I'm guilty of giving the host positive feedback, letting, letting her know that she makes a difference beyond just being a video news host, letting her know that she is a very attractive woman, ect. Guilty as charged. It's my nature to give people appreciation. You never know when they might not be here. I know what it's like to lose eveyone and eveything you've ever love in life. I come from a different perspective than you, but I'm sincerely the nicest guy in the world. For example, I've have millionaires ask me to marry their daughters after a long interview with me when I was virtually penniless at the time and I've had married women want to leave their husbands, but I repaired their marriage instead.

_____________________________________________


I'm only here for maybe 10 to 20 minutes a day at the most. It seems strange that you call me obsessed when you spend hours at a time spamming the comments section grandstanding, by your own admission, trying to get the host to respond to one of your comments.


If you think those questions I posed were creepy. Then don't be surprised when your girlfriend/wife is having an affair behind your back.


Nice grandstanding attempt junior.

I think she was wanting to shake things up and want something outrageous for kicks. Maybe she wanted to read some outrageous comments That was implied it seemed.


It seems that the intelligence level at this sight is lacking. At the Religion and Christianity fora at Amazon, even the Video Game and Fun fora people are much more intelligent and much less opportunistically depraved.


I've said many of the same things and had on-line 'romances' and friendly flirations, I've wished married women Happy Valentines and we've both traded love posts. Nobody opportunistically mis-perceives anything the wrong was or as creepy.


I've been posting here a while. I think anyone who knows me, knows I'm very genuine, sincere, too honest for my own good, an almost self-less giver and very thoughtful. I know I'm imperfect, but I'm not a horrible person.

1080P@60fps? Still PC all the way, with even better graphics. Plus all of the 'exclusive' PS4 content is available on PC anyway.

Thank you Jess. Awesome show as always. It's always a delight watching your show.


WATCH DOGS

PS4 all the way. It's like an open world vigilante Splinter Cell with hacking.


GameSpy being closed down: I thought they had got the ax a couple years ago. None of those EA games I play.


"Post every thought I've ever had"

I think I have already. Thank you Jess. The world is a much better place because you're here.
