I'm actually rather pleased with this news. Doesn't matter how pretty the world is if there's nothing fun to do in it.

The entire Watch Dogs debacle has probably been the funniest to witness case of constant goalpost moving in the industry.

ooohh some of the first next-gen benchmarks are upon us!!

not only will it be interesting to see what CPU/GPU combo it takes to hit (1) 900p and 792p at 30fps, but also (2) 1080p at both 30fps and 60fps... then you compare (1) and (2) and one can guesstimate how much, say, the ps4 wouldve cost if it had the horsepower to hit 1080p 30/60. extra $50... extra $200? (and to another extent, if it takes a significantly beefier CPU/GPU to hit 1080p, given the available CPU/GPUs and their thermal envelopes, how this wouldve affected chassis design and dimensions).

and of course, the creme de la creme: what it takes to hit 4k at 30fps+. is the 780ti enough? must stacked dram swoop in the save the day?? stay tuned!

^This exactly. Pleased with the decision they made.
900p ain't that bad though.

Doesn't make much difference at all to me, can't see how that kind of drop will affect my enjoyment of the game at all, only thing I don't like is the idiotic nature of having a 1080p/60fps claim on the Sony website in the first place

900p is pretty close to 1080p. The One is a bit lower, but there was another multi-platform release a little while ago where the PS4 version was higher resolution, but the One version performed better? Or maybe it was PS3 and X-Box. I'm thinking maybe it was Thief? I dunno.

Either way, I'm getting it on PC so um yeah >_>

The 101 Trailer was nice. Not sure I'll bother with Online much, but it seems like I'll enjoy this game more than GTAV at least.

On a more serious note, my biggest concern is that Ubi's already come out saying Watch Dogs will be a loss-lead and then become it's next full-gen franchise ala Assassin's Creed. I hope whoever's making it has a genuine love of the setting and genre because a soulless sequel factory doesn't sound like a good time to me.

Can't wait to play it in 1080p and 60 FPS on my PC.

Meh, I'm buying the Wii U, PS4, and Xbox One for unique experiences, and they all deliver exactly that. When I want graphics, I hop on my PC, and usually then just play CS: Source or Doom anyways. Really looking forward to the world Watch Dogs has to offer and the dynamism that comes with it, glad they made sacrifices to keep the more important aspects intact.

Not 1080p, 60frames ????
O'well that's life lol If i had a high end PC i'd still be getting this for PS4 or PS3. Superficial nonsense like this wouldn't force me to get it for any other system than the one i'd want it on since day1.

Not 1080p, 60 frames.
I don't care.
WATCH DOGS just looks fun & interesting.

VampireWicked - Well, that's the thing isn't it? You're not interested in gaming on PC so you wouldn't have a high-end gaming PC in the first place.

I would, am getting one, just not for gaming.
When i get a high end PC it won't be for gaming as i don't see PCs as a gaming platform i'd be using it for something else & leave gaming to the consoles.

What, for video/graphics editing or something?

You might not see it as a gaming platform on a personal level, but it definitely is one >_>

Hey you wanna see it as a gaming platform that's up to you & anyone else, i personally don't. It's not something i consider gaming on.
