[Various] Subpar visuals in Watch_Dogs Ubisoft Frightened Due to Backlash - Page 9

post #81 of 249
I never believed for one second that the game would have looked like the e3 build on consoles, but I didn't think the difference would have been as bad the gif shows. (assuming it's real of course)

It was about STORY.

I also look for a great story and good playability. Focus on amazing graphics shouldn't be a top priority.
Splinter Cell Black list looked great, had a decent story and ran very smooth with all the eye candy turned up.

Exactly. The first part of this quote was just someone with random hatred for Microsoft. I mean how anyone could make a statement like that is just beyond me. It's obviously false and can be proven easily. I really think people like this should be given warnings and if they continue to do it they should be banned. This isn't opinion we're discussing this is flat out mis information the guy was trying to pass as fact.

Well the car gif seams to be authentic

The poor visuals version is clearly taken form an hands on review of the PS4 version and as we know the other is form E3

PS4 car jump at 2:30

E3 2012 car jump at 9:20


Here is as pretty decent video that does comparisons of the different builds

So yeah. The devs have most definitely scaled back some stuff for the PS4 version (hopefully PC still has the better graphics)

Eh, I still think it looks great(for a console game). I can't believe anyone looked at the PC footage from E3 and actually expected consoles to look like that, and if you did you should be blaming MS and Sony.

Ubisoft are frightened because backlash against Watch Dogs is pretty stronger than anticipated.

What I don't get are the people here who are saying "It's not about graphics, it's about story / gameplay!"

As if that has anything to do with the false advertising Ubisoft engaged in by presenting a much better looking game at E3.

Further, who says the gameplay will be great because the graphics are not? What kind of reasoning is this? Those of you saying this may not be making that explicit claim, but the fact is the gameplay has nothing to do with graphics (and they certainly don't have an inverse relationship).

The best you should be saying is that while Ubisoft clearly misled gamers (again) and continue to do so in PR releases, at least the gameplay may be better than the graphics ... but to start talking about how "the best games of the 90s were about STORY" and somehow relating that to this game is ridiculous.

What were saying is that, we won't call it a bad game because the graphics aren't jaw dropping amazing.

Give us good game play and a great story, worry about amazing graphics last.

Unless it ends up looking like absolute dog poo, I wouldnt worry about it.

The trailers did look good, even on console.
