Well, that’s interesting. After picking up earlier that Watch Dogs would run at 1080p and 60fps on PS4, as listed on the official PlayStation website, where it said that you could “experience Watch_Dogs in a way that only PS4 can provide, at 60 Frames Per Second in 1080p”, that last bit has now vanished from the site.
It looked like this before:
And here’s how it looks now:
That suggests either one (or all) of a few things: either the game isn’t quite reaching the 1080p target, or it’s running at less than 60fps, or maybe Ubisoft weren’t happy with Sony advertising the game in this way, essentially saying that the Xbox One version and all other versions were inferior.
Notice that the line “the best graphics on any console” is still there, so it’s likely that it doesn’t run at 60 frames per second. At least, that’s the most logical thing – the open world PS4 exclusive inFamous Second Son only ran at 30fps too, and that was perfectly fine.
To quote our original post, and our news editor Aran: “if the game is fun then play it from when it’s available in a couple of weeks”, that’s all that we can say on the matter!
