Forums - Gaming Discussion - Watch Dogs: 900p PS4, 792p X1, both 30fps


Sony's official PlayStation site makes the claim.

Update 2: Watch Dogs will run at 900p on PlayStation 4 and 792p on Xbox One, Ubisoft confirmed. Both versions run at 30 frames per-second.


The game also looks great on both generations of consoles. On new-gen systems the game will run at 900p on PS4 and 792p on Xbox One, at 30 frames-per-second on both consoles. While some new-gen games now offer native 1080p, Morin says it’s much more important to deliver an amazing next-gen experience than it is to push a few more pixels onto a screen. “Resolution is a number, just like framerate is a number. All those numbers are valid aspects of making games,” he says. “But you make choices about the experience you want to deliver. In our case, dynamism is everything. Exploration and expression are everything. You want to have a steady framerate, but you want to have dynamism at the core of the experience. The same goes with resolution. People tend to look at corridor shooters, for example, where there’s a corridor and all the effects are on and it’s unbelievable, and they forget that if you apply those same global effects to an open city with people around and potential car crashes and guys in multiplayer showing up without warning, the same effect is applied to a lot of dynamic elements that are happening in every frame. So it becomes magnified in cost.”

Second non 1080p game on PS4?

Wow glad I'm getting this on PC

Whoa...I was expecting PS4/X1 1080p/900p 30fps

Sony jumping the gun was pretty dumb though lol

Sony Sony Sony

That didn't sound right when I first heard it. 1080P at 60FPS

1080p 60 fps was ridiculous.

Honestly, the only 60fps you'll see at 1080p is likely on PC. Neither of these machines have the hardware potential that the manufacturers think they do.

that downgrade, glad i spend my birthday gift money in other games :P


That's a far fucking cry.
