[Various] Subpar visuals in Watch_Dogs Ubisoft Frightened Due to Backlash - Page 21

My guess is that they realized that game is way behind schedule and they can not release шеwith E3 level graphics, unless they postpone it by year or more.

I'm thinking they could not come to close to meeting the target resolution and framerate on the xbox one (possibly ps4 as well), without a drastic reduction in quality, so that's what they did. I am thinking they also will release it just like this for the PC, to maintain the illusion for console people that their consoles are next gen pieces of hardware every bit as powerful as a pc. That's my guess.

I don't understand how anyone could possibly believe that their console is as powerful as even a midrange desktop PC.

Maybe if this story gets big enough, people will finally realize that buying a console from Sony or Microsoft is a surefire way to get ripped off? Nowadays it probably only takes around $400 to build a PC that will run modern games at higher settings than current-gen consoles. Hell, for under $1000 you can get a laptop that will do the same thing. And of course, for that price you get a fully-functional PC as well, which is something that pretty much everybody needs anyway.

Pay $400 for a console that wishes it was a PC, or pay $400 for an actual PC that can do a better job at literally every task. It seems like a no-brainer to me, but oh well.

Speaking of no brains, that's actually why I would use consoles more often than computers because they took no brains to operate. I think that goes for a lot of people with a similar mindset. It is just sheer apathy and laziness, maybe even a certain degree of fear. Fear of the seemingly daunting insurmountable knowledge it takes to understand a computer when all you have to do with a console is pop the disc in and you're good to go. If they really knew what they were missing I think there would be a lot more pc gamers and that much less for the consoles. Perhaps, if it were this way, pc wouldn't get the shaft so frequently.

Now when Morin says “HD” does he mean E3 levels of graphics or its-technically-hd-because-it-was-rendered-at-720p console “HD”? The skeptic in me thinks the latter.

"HD" only says anything at all about resolution, it does not say anything about texture quality, lighting quality, model detail, animation, etc, etc, etc.

People often use "HD" as code for "It looks gud!" but you can't bank on that.

To be honest since this game was scaled down for the consoles the PC version should still be pretty impressive in comparison to the E3 footage, perhaps pretty close hopefully.

It's like Turbo from the 80's thumb.gif
