Default Sony lied- Watch Dogs won’t be 1080p or 60fps on PS4

Why am I not surprised?

I don't think Mantle was ever included in the code for Watchdogs.

well I shouldn't be surprised by mantle I guess.... especially if EA has their fingers into it. They'll release it early for profit, lie about how good it isn't, and take your cash to the bank.

At least I'll be able to run it at 1080p, well 1440p at 60 fps, poor console gamers.

I don't think Kabini is prime for 1080p, reviews showed it struggling to make 720p. Sony and Microsoft put too many hopes on this and now they are both in hot water. We'll see who lies most and best, but I think this generation of consoles is a flop. That is why I like gaming on PC, you can always upgrade, even a 7 year old one.

I am not at all surprised...So 900p and 792p for PS4 and XBoxONE, respectively, at 30 fps. I am glad I don't really console game much anymore (my 360 is still fine for the occasional use).

How did they mess up that bad on potential capabilities. Stating 1080p @ 60fps and only being able to run 900p @ 30fps is a MASSIVE overstatement.

Both consoles are under powered in the graphics department. At least one of them should have created a setup for 1080p @ 60fps in most, if not all games. That said I understand its all about the $ of profit in their accounts...if they can sell this console at $400-500 why bother with something more powerful and potentially lower profit margins. I cannot see this gen of consoles lasting as long as the last generation.

It wasn't a mess up. It is called "marketing". Just pre order the damn game already so we can find out what's in it.
