[Engadget] Watch Dogs release set for May 27th - Page 11

I love how this is playing out to be honest.

E3 trailer - another super shiny, sold as in game graphics scenario.

consumers assume their PS4's will look this good.

PS4 footage comes out, looks like GTAV

community lights on fire with accusations of deception.

WatchDogs becomes meme for the deceptive practices of the AAA game industry.

PC remains to be seen since E3 2012....It still could get the far cry, acm treatment. I hope they prove the doubters wrong though.

I don't remember "the farcry" treatment, can you remind me what that was?

Pre-ordered and paid. This game definitely have my interest from all the speculation and controversy surrounding the graphics.

OK, this might sound melodramatic but I think Pre-ordering is the cancer of the gaming industry. It use to be a way of getting a game a little earlier via post or bonus DLC, but I think it's redundant now with the prevalence of online-distribution. I know you get some extra bonus things like a pretty box or a desktop wallpaper, but it means a developer/publisher can make money off a game without a player having even touched it. This is where the issue with Watchdogs graphical downgrade is, to me it's a way of fraudulently funding a project, making it more glossy than is possible on release just to secure those preorders.

I'm not blaming the devs/publishers or the people preordering, it's come about naturally but I think we all need to stop pre-ordering and vote with our wallets once we've seen it released and leave the gambling to the Kickstarters.

You are right and wrong...

It's your own fault if you believed that trailer's level of fidelity was possible out side of a xutscene on a console. Doesnt matter what they did or didnt say. Ignorance isn't an excuse.

Wow so shocking. I'm just so surprised... PS4 can't do cutting edge fidelity in real time? Nooo waaayy! Ok in all seriousness though. I'm still banking on that footage being a cutscene.

I really don't worry about the consoles, their hardware limitations are well known, ilhe4e12345's post holds some hope for the PC version, whether I "believe" them or not doesn't change the fact that they are calculatedly misleading. I'm not so naive to think this doesn't go on elsewhere and in other industries but again, it doesn't change the fact that it's wrong and the resulting preorders only compounds the issue. Imagine how quickly the gaming industry would improve if we only bought games that proved themselves.

It's not his fault. He didn't know how powerful the next-gen consoles were going to be in 2012.

The trailer graphics looked achievable by a high-end PC at them time so it was reasonable to expect that in the final product.

Do you get paid extra to defend your employer Ubisoft in the forums?
