Perhaps it was realised that if they wanted to release a game that was going to have a large player environment that they needed to reduce the graphics quality a bit to keep the game size down?

Who knows, maybe they read all the comments from the cry babies complaining on OCN about the 48GB required for Titanfall and decided that keeping the size down was better rolleyes.gif

The problem with titanfall is the graphic quality isn't good enough to warrant the 50GB size it is.

Is this game always-online? I heard other players would be able to hack into your game. Or am i thinking this is multi-player? From what i've been reading Ubi is not looking good or rather down right sleazy.

Pretty sure something like 30GB is lossless audio, which I think is complete unnecessary, but whatever.

It took me over 5 minutes to unpack that audio with 40% load on my OC 3770k and it was using over 1GB of my ram to do so. Texture wise, maxed out the game doesn't justify the size. Audio on the other hand is very good and I can tell on my HD558's and Titanium HD sound card they put tons of work into it.

I found some screen shots that compare the old gen vs new gen






That is a huge difference. I'm not too picky with graphics but a huge downgrade in graphics like that is a bit too much. frown.gif

Like I said thous are old an new gen pics. The top is PS3 and bottom is either PS4 or more likely Xbone as it has crushed blacks. The issue is that the E3 trailers looked way better then the current PS4/Xbone build and people are really worried that the PC version will look like the PS4 version and not like what was presented at E3 2012.

Backlash or not, we're in the minority. It's still going to sell to the masses, and it's going to sell well. That audience is who the advertising is for, and that audience certainly isn't following the appearances of the game and comparing.

Don't like what's happening? Don't buy it. It's not like there aren't a whole mess of great games on PC worth playing in its place.

I'm definitely in to the vote with your wallet mentality. You don't have to boycott the game just don't per-order or buy it at release. Even though Far Cry 3 has been on sales plenty of times I haven't picked it up yet. A: because it use uplay and B: because ubisoft pulled a bait and switch and C: because it still has performance issues (at least I haven hear people say it got fixed).

If Watch dogs turns out like Far Cry 3 I will probably pass on it (well unless the gameplay turns out to be something really special). The sad thing is that if the PC version sells poorly Ubi will just blame it on pirates again or claim there isn't a market on the PC instead of taking responsibility for their actions.

No need to make excuses for them bro unless you're on the Ubisoft payroll. That's just pathetic.
