AC Unity: #PS4noparity hashtag blows Up, Gamers upset over Ubisoft’s decision

ac unity

It was recently revealed that the PS4 and Xbox One versions of AC Unity will be locked at 900p. Ubisoft had revealed that they did this “to avoid debates”. Basically, they didn’t take advantage of what the PS4 had to offer and developed the game with the lowest common denominator in mind.

While their honesty is appreciated, enforcing parity is really unfair to the gamers. As a result, gamers have started a new hashtag on Twitter called #PS4noparity which has blown up with thousands of tweets in an hour.

Many gamers feel that such a decision will not encourage creativity and games should be developed by taking full advantage of what each hardware has to offer.

If you take a look at the hashtag, the amount of anger at this decision by Ubisoft is simply unparalleled. If Ubisoft thought they could stop “debates” by enforcing parity then it has certainly backfired now.

Assassin’s Creed with also run at 30 fps because they encountered some CPU limitations in next-gen consoles which hampered their vision. However, based on all the footage so far the game still does look really nice.

Will you be supporting Ubisoft after this revelation? Tell us what you think in the comments section below.

  • Mark

    With this kind of logic, we wouldn’t have cars because it’s unfair to horses, or ATMs because it puts bank tellers out of work. Ubisoft should embrace innovation and always move forward, not be held back by a lust for parity between multiple platforms

    • drjonesjnr

      Well said

      • DarthDiggler

        @drjonesjnr:disqus & @Mark

        That analogy would be apt if all other things are equal. We don’t have that info at this time. Of course the gaming news community hasn’t exactly pointed out this. Not sure if it is a lack of expertise or ethics.

        • brianc6234

          I take it you have an Xbone.

        • Mic Redford

          The analogy works because the PS4 is the more powerful machine. It makes it the car & ATM & we do have this information straight from developers themselves.

            You obviously give a shi t, thats why you wont stop responding to me. So you obviously care, you fake. and self entitled? Your crazy kid, you must be projecting. Come up with some more nonsense to try and accuse me of, maybe next you’ll be right about something. But probably not, sweetheart. And btw, that comment just sounded like a whole lot of rambling.

          • William Ragland

            You know what? I believe I speak for many a fed up gamer that trolls like you, on all sides, give respectful gamers a bad name and should really shut up or f*** off if you don’t cut out the hateful comments.

        • Guy Brohski

          Don’t pay attention to the whiny little Sony fanboys. All they know how to do is kick and scream when something doesn’t go their way…

          • Jason Mounce

            Xbox fanboys apparently are content and try to hide their buyers-remorse by feeling satisfied and smug because their current-gen preferred-console is capable of 900p30FPS and it’s ‘secret sauce’ is downgrading the entire industry just so little twits like you can feel better about yourselves and your purchase.

            Brb need some popcorn.

          • starscream1180

            No bud, people like play fun games not worry about resolution …

          • Jason Mounce

            This isn’t so much people worrying/whining about resolution as much as people are enraged at the POLITICS of gaming and Ubisoft being at the center of it. Gamers are all passionate about their hobby, and involving it can include the morality of things and justifications of what goes around with their hobby.

            This isn’t Resolution whining as much as it’s the unjustified, presumable cashgrab and PR bullshat where Ubisoft says one thing, does another. They had said in JULY 8th 2014 that they were aiming to do EVERYTHING they could to push both consoles to their limits! They said they were AIMING for 1080p. Then they go with a parity?! – to avoid Political ramifications? Probably Microsoft showing their unhappiness to when PS4’s version got a Magical patch that upgraded it’s version of Black Flag from 900p to 1080p – I bet you any money Microsoft was crossed and thus? Has their hands dipped in this issue.

            One of the ‘features’ of PS4, being an investment to some gamers if not the majority of gamers, is superior hardware. They paid to have the chance to play games at a better resolution than that of the rival-console where multiplatform games would, and should perform better under the presumption that they for one example, do not have a PC that is capable of running the games they enjoy at Max or High settings or are just console-dependant or tight on money, or aren’t computer literate as much as they’re casual on PC knowledge but still passionate gamers even so.

          • Psytrix

            I don’t blame people who bought the Sony console, to be pissed off that games are being limited in their capacity due to inferior hardware from Microsoft.

        • Psytrix

          *You’re

      • AndrewLB

        I would be saying the same thing except for the fact that the PC version clearly has higher resolution textures, ambient occlusion, higher quality shadows and lighting, and many more graphical features that clearly makes it the ultimate platform for the game.

        The one thing so many PS4 fans don’t understand is that their console isn’t much faster than the Xbone, and making the jump from 900p to 1080p with a game as detailed as Unity, you’d need a lot more than 30-40% more GPU power. First you have to consider the number of pixels is increased by about 40%, but that doesn’t factor in the exponentially increased variable of adding anti-aliasing and texture/shadow/lighting filtering, which is where the real performance hit takes place.

        • James Wood

          It depends entirely on the design of the system and software. Your statement is overly broad. Take a modern video card, it will run better at 1080p then it would trying to run at 800×600, because it was designed to. A lot of benchmarks on video cards for the past 8+ years have shown this. A pixel increase of 40% doesn’t mean a performance demand of +40% or more. It could demand increased performance and overtax the system, or it could actually be more efficient at that resolution and actually run better.

          • asdf

            What garbage is this? Do you have any idea how graphic rendering works at all? Tell you what, run watch dogs at 1080p and 480p on a high end graphics card and tell me what gives you better frames.

            Oh shoosh James those all sound like facts and stuff. Obviously UbiSoft is just being a bunch of D!cks to PS4 gamers. The whole company was on board with that plan which is why the PS4 version isn’t 1080p. I bet if they worked harder they could make it 1440p/120fps!!!!!

            UbiSoft holding the PS4 back.

        • VelvetMark

          Assassin’s Creed Black Flag circa November 2013 for PS4. 1080p.

          • starscream1180

            Have u seen this game in action ur comparing a game that released on last gen with a game t hey couldnt even closely reproduce on the wii u ..

          • DarthDiggler

            @disqus_Wqq30xg9s7:disqus

            Please note Assassins’ Creed Black Flag is not a coop game. That changes things.

            With all due respect, when did the ignorant become so bold and so sure of themselves? If you don’t understand game development why is it you feel your opinion is worth sharing? At least provide people with a caveat like…

            “I don’t know much about game development, but my opinion / speculation is…”

            At least that would be an honest statement. People are so quick to make claims that they have no expertise to form said analysis.

        • brianc6234

          PC gaming. Blah.

        • Mic Redford

          Your referring to the game as if it would as broad & as high as your comment. All the numbers you named are rough estimates based out of your arse.

      • VelvetMark

        I’m not sure he has to become a dev and make a game. The devs at ubisoft seemed to make black flag 1080p on the PS4 version not too long ago.

        • starscream1180

          Again …black flag was made on last gen and lookd pretty good in comparison ….this game couldnt be made on last gen not even wii u …black flag looks like a joke in comparison to unity

        • DarthDiggler

          @disqus_Wqq30xg9s7:disqus

          You comment showcases your ignorance to game development.

          New engine with new capabilities can’t be expected to act and play just like the old engine. Coop gameplay is taxing, thus resources must be allocated appropriately.

          • VelvetMark

            “It was recently revealed that the PS4 and Xbox One versions of AC Unity will be locked at 900p. Ubisoft had revealed that they did this “to avoid debates”.”

            Your comment shows your ignorance when it comes to reading comprehension. It’s obvious from the statement that one of the systems could have reached a higher resolution, and let’s be honest, we both know which system that is.

    • mazegilliam

      That cars and horse statement …. Priceless

    • Andrew Vrba

      Your tears are delish! I think I shall drink my fill then bottle and sell the rest on eBay!

      • DarthDiggler

        @x1ultimategamer:disqus

        Sounds like a well reasoned argument. Did you just come up with that all by yourself?

    • corvusmd

      You’re right, they should allow X1 to offload some of the AI process to cloud servers like Titanfall and both Forzas. Embrace innovation

      • You are flat out wrong

        No one wants the bad bot AI Titanflop had.

        • corvusmd

          This comment was the quickest way to show the world you are ignorant and have no clue what you are talking about

      • DarthDiggler

        @corvusmd:disqus

        LOL and pay MS a service fee for pinging their servers? If Ubisoft needs cloud technology there are ample solutions on the marketplace for it. MS isn’t the end all be all of cloud — as a matter of fact they are very late to the game (as usual).

        • corvusmd

          MS is the cheapest though, and I’m sure they’d cut a deal on the first game that they can use to say….see we are tech superior to PS4

  • corvusmd

    ….all this is doing is showing how spoiled and ignorant gamers have become. So far what we know it’s not Graphics that is holding this game into parity….it’s AI processing on the CPU. So then if we look at all the available resources for both consoles and the fact that X1 already has three games that offloads AI processing to cloud servers….it would stand to reason that it’s actually PS4 holding things back in this case. But no…let’s jump the gun and back the wrong horse.

    I don’t care from a “console win” perspective, but simply to shut ignorant fanboys up, it’d be awesome in this case if the “PS4” movement works and ends up making the X1 version 900p 60fps by allowing cloud AI processing and PS4 stays 900p 30fps….

    • Chris

      Yea because every multi plat game released so far, PS4 has been the superior version, so obviously in this case, it’s the PS4 holding things back right? -__-

      • corvusmd

        Pay attention dude…read what they actually have said about this rather than assuming. Not to mention the definition of “superior version” so far this gen has always been a joke. Having both PS4 and X1 I can tell you that EVERY graphical difference is trumped by every other aspect of gaming…and has NEVER been the true “superior version”

        • Chris

          I hear what you’re saying, but you’re jumping to conclusions as well. All of a sudden the X1 has the power to out put higher resolutions? Based on what exactly?

          By superior I meant higher resolutions while maintaining the same FPS as the X1. It has more horse power, simple as that. Graphical difference have been miniscule and most of the time the X1 has more screen tearing issues, which is a fact.

          People are coming to conclusions based on how the PS4 is performing. Not some secret sauce formula and magical cloud BS. I’ve yet to see anywhere, any multi plat game that performs better on X1.

          • corvusmd

            A….I never said anything about resolution…I was thinking offloading the AI onto cloud servers would allow for an increse of FPS to poss 60. The dev himself said if the AI wasn’t a problem the game would be “100fps”
            B. If the AI was that taxing and they could off load a significant portion of it….depending on how they decide…it could be possible to do a higher res then. I’m not a dev, but it seems like it’d be easier just to boost FPS and leave it at 900p so that if network is down for a bit, you just drop the FPS back to PS4 levels.

          • Chris

            lol… there you go again talking about magic cloud support. And what about the people that can’t have internet connection 24/7? Your solution is the drop the frames back to “PS4 lvls”? lol?

            Taxing AI? Ubisoft is a joke, and if you believe the excuses they come up with it makes you punchline of their jokes. This game looks to be POORLY optimized.

            I’m done with this argument. You have very little understanding about how things actually work, and you believe what Ubisoft tells you. Why did Black Flag run at 1080p on PS4? Why didn’t they offload the UI onto the almighty cloud on the X1?

            Delusional people.

          • corvusmd

            Yeah….delusional alright.

          • corvusmd

            You’re done, because you are wrong and you know it. Black flag was on a different engine and didn’t have the same AI requirements….just cause the game says Assassain Creed doesn’t mean it has the same demands.

            You don’t have to take my word for it, look at what the dev said and then go from there. But I guess random guy “Chris” knows better than the people getting paid to make one of the biggest gaming franchises ever.

          • Unknown?

            He’s right, give it up. You try to hard, no one believes you.

          • corvusmd

            You dont have to believe me….how about the Dev making the game. I’m sorry it stings.

          • Unknown?

            I guess you believed Microsoft when they said Kinect couldn’t be removed from the system or that DRM couldn’t either. So gullible.

          • GUN®

            Stop embarrassing yourself, you show up on every n4g page relating to PS4 vs X1 and claim not to be a fanboy all the while spouting off about how ‘over rated’ TLoU is and how most people believe the X1 has the stronger lineup of games, you’re so arrogant and blinded by MS-lust that you think you can speak for other people.

          • corvusmd

            Please list the last time I was on N4g

          • the truth hurts

            Madden, UFC and wolfenstein recently….where is the power of your ps4 with the inferior driveclub with only 50 cars that cant even be customized? Sorry pal forza 5 at 1080p 60fps and forza horizon 2 put driveclub to shame….ps4 is inferior to xbox one.

          • Unknown?

            Yeah Forza 5 which uses cardboard crowds, cardboard foliage, 2D sky boxes, and prebaked lighting. Both of which even GT6 on PS3 used better assets and still got to 1080p and 60fps on that system. GT6 even uses adaptive tessellation. Then you have Driveclub that has way better graphics. Good try.

    • (0_0)

      The Xbox One has a faster CPU, but when they were tested the PS4’s CPU outperformed the Xbox One.

      • corvusmd

        Ok….that isn’t what I said.

  • RA3030

    I’ve never purchased a Ubisoft AC game. I’m a fan of other Ubisot titles. This will not help UbI get an AC title on my PS4. Truth be told it had no chance to get on my PS4 even at 1080p. Now if I came across free copy we’d slide it on in.

  • Dennis Crosby

    Just so you guy know parity works both ways. If you are primarily ps4 gamer and your mad that this game didn’t hit 1080p ask yourself this should primarily Xbox one gamer be mad that AC unity isn’t using dedicated servers because of parity also?

    • corvusmd

      EXACTLY! So, since the MAIN issue is how taxing the AI is on the CPU for this game…and X1 actually has a proven method for dealing with this…but isn’t allowed to use it due to parity…sounds more like the X1 is getting shafted in this case than the PS4

      • #PS4noParity

        Hey, look, it’s corvusmd, the Xbot from N4G. How stupid do you have to be to think that the PS4 is holding back the One? The One is weaker

        • reallydude?

          Your post does not add to the discussion. He is pointing out a difference between the two systems that is known and you bash him for being a “xbot”, I think you are just a butt hurt PS4 fanboy that can’t face the fact that the X1 might be better in any way.

          • Unknown?

            Well he doesn’t add much to the discussion but there is no need to reply with a serious discussion to someone who clearly is spewing B.S.

          • Garouga

            Yeah sure! 10% advantage in clockspeed (only clockspeed, 1.60 ps4 vs 1.75 X1, all other things related to CPU are the same, both are the same AMD CPU…) will make Ps4 eat dust from X1, just ignore the massive advantage in ROP’s, unified Gddr5 memory and the better GPU on Ps4. Plus ignore all major games that run better on Ps4, like Cod:ghosts and TB: def. edition /S
            PS4 holding back in anyway? sorry man, no…

          • smh

            That is not a difference between systems… Microsofts “cloud” is not a part of the actual system smh. Not only that but Sony has cloud capabilities also so neither of your comments makes sense.
            Also the Xbox 1 has an esram bottleneck and that is the biggest difference besides the memory.Smh spreading false rumors and what not.

        • corvusmd

          …um, insecure much? Did you seriously make a profile named after the article we are on, just so you can personally attack me over a site I haven’t been on in months since it became the biggest cestpool of ignorant PS4 fanboys ever…and then come here and attack me just to prove how much you don’t know about what is going on? I almost want to frame this as THE most ignorant and insecure post I have ever seen.

        • starscream1180

          bc the cpu on the x1 has a higher clock speed .. dont worry the ps4 is more powerful gpu wise id hate to offend the fanboys,

          • Unknown?

            Higher clock speed doesn’t make it more powerful. Otherwise my Pentium 4 at 3.8ghz from 2002 would be faster than a new i7 that has a much lower clockspeed. This makes even more sense when PS4’s CPU outperformed the Xbox One CPU when benchmarked.

          • starscream1180

            all i said was the xbox has a higher clockspeed … and both consoles have basically the same cpu …

          • DLConspiracy//

            Just curious and for my own knowledge doesn’t a stock CPU i7 4.2 ghz run faster than a stock i7 3.8 ghz though? Isn’t there a price difference too?

      • andy

        Again, how is AI and the CPU anything to do with Graphical horsepower?

    • DanielGearSolid

      Your example isnt logical…

      Microsoft is the one that limits use of their own dedicated servers on Xbox One to exclusives. Its not up to the developers….

      Also Servers are servers… Just because MS says their cloud servers are some Magical Jesus Servers, doesnt mean its true.

      I’m sure the servers Ubi are using for AC Unity are adequate… Remember, publishers have been using dedicated servers on Ps3 and 360 before MS’ Cloud was even revealed

      • starscream1180

        just sounds like alot of bitching and moaning over something that dosnt effect gameplay …..
        thank god i was around when atari released ..8-bit 16 bit 32 etc … gaming is gaming no matter the rez.

        • adlez

          Stop trying to defend this absurd! It’s wrong to “Nerf” PS4 version just because X-1 can’t do the same,this is a insult to the fans on the Ps4 side and only a Xboxfanboy whit lots of hate would look this as a “ok thing”…
          and about these magic “dedicated servers” that microsoft talk about… well… I didn’t see even one game that have major gains whit this thing, Titanfall onlyne on Xbox is at the same level of PC (PC have better graphs, but PC will always have better graph vs consoles (PS4/X1/WiiU)

          • starscream1180

            no , you dont control that , if a dev wants to make two versions equal … let it be … its nonsense to cry about 1080p/900p … you understand to the naked eye thats nothing … i have both consoles and i have split screened ghosts, battleifield 4 , ac black flag … theres basically zero difference …

            Ok guy …

      • Dennis Crosby

        Yea publisher have used dedicated servers before this gen the problem the same developer are using them and that a very small percentage. Every developer should be using them it benefits the game and gamer more then peer to peer. Developer chose not to use them because it would be far for one console to have them and another not.

    • Guest

      Stupid example. Most X1 games dont use dedicated servers. Man, ms fanboys just keep proving to the world how dumb they are.

      • Dennis Crosby

        You sure about that maybe you should take another look

    • me

      What lol that makes no sense lmao.

      • Dennis Crosby

        How doesn’t that make sense? Microsoft is offering dedicated servers to any and every developer that wants them. Multiplatform developer won’t use them because of parity. It would be far for the xb1 games to have dedicated servers and the ps4 games don’t. That why when Cod:ghost announced it would have dedicated servers on xbox one they didn’t go through with it because people were complaining

  • Dave

    Ridiculous decision by Ubisoft, PS4 should be at 1080p easy.

    • Guest

      What do you expect, the have had a partnership with MS on this game since the beginning. MS is probably paying them to gimp it.

      • starscream1180

        so yea lets just assume things bc you dont work in the industry … so the logical thing is to talk out your ass

        • Section8

          Also, if you pay attention, with the next 2 AC games, sony does NOT have playstation exclusive content this time.

      • corvusmd

        Just like they did with Black Flag and Far Cry 4

    • Edonus

      Why would this be “easy”. Ps4 has not demonstrated an ability to handle cpu heavy games yet. Infamous SS was 1080p but it was a single player game with few enemies on screen at once an open world with a very lightly populated city almost no cars or demanding AI. Watchdogs had a more lively city. And all because AC4 was 1080p doesnt mean this one would be as well. AC4 was cross gen game turning up the resolution was as easy as just saying put pixels in. Unity is built for next gen consoles, that means all the effects bells and whistles are going to be in. The resolution thing was given to you guys so incorrectly you have no idea what is actually happening. You were lied to and taken advantage of and its just hard for you Ps4 fans to accept it.

      • You are flat out wrong

        Only Xbone game with a large number of NPCs was DR3 and that was at 720p 20fps.

    • corvusmd

      Why?

  • Sheldon Prescott

    *sigh*, these Sony guys are making gamers, as a whole, look very bad. Petty, whining grown “men”. Whoever started this prolly threw a temper tantrum -_-. As a gamer, I hated this new “gaming community” when I read about all the threats to the people behind Rise of the Tomb Raider.

    • (0_0)

      So what your saying is just take it in a** with a smile?

      • corvusmd

        Or get informed as to what is ACTUALLY going on before “you” start whining about it

    • corvusmd

      Seriously, gaming is better now than it has ever been, but gamers are spoiled and ignorant now…and they consistently complain about THE most insignificant aspect of gaming like it’s the most important. There still isn’t a SINGLE game that looks easily noticeably better on PS4 than X1 …but if you only listened to PS4 fanboys you’d think it’s like night and day. There are TONS of aspects of gaming that are more important than ANY of these res differences….hell, just being able to say “xbox on….go to ‘game'” is more important….and that’s nothing.

      • smh

        No not really plus ps4 has voice commands aswell. Now playing destiny on my vita in New York while my ps4 is home in a Hamilton nj is something to talk about. Anyway resolution is a big deal if not then why are we not jus making 8bit games or 2d games, right? Let’s just do that since resolution doesn’t matter all of a sudden. Lol at all the fanboys

      • GUN®

        “but if you only listened to PS4 fanboys”

        And if we only listened to Xbox fanboys like you we’d think that saying “Xbox on” is more important than the games themselves.

    • scvd

      What about older threats to other gaming companies regarding other games? Because it’s been going on forever. Not exclusively Sony fans versus Microsoft fans.

    • Unknown?

      Why does it have to be Sony guys? Why can’t it just be gamers who want their games to be made to the best of their abilities? 35% of PS4 owners are former Xbox owners fyi.

      • DLConspiracy//

        I didn’t see PS fans jumping to help PC gamers help last gen when they nerfed all PC games for a time. Purism has preferential bounds I guess?

        • Guest

          Double standards all the time for the paupers. Let’s not forget they send death threats to people when a game comes exclusively to another Platform. $0N¥ (no dollars, no yen) is still a dying pauperbrand and they know it.

            People are choosing PS4 not out of money or “being able to afford it” but because they think it’s a better console. They both cost the same amount of money. There is no such thing as “proper gaming”. The Playstation brand is very strong and very relevant.

            That “Guest” thing uses the disqus names Death Dealer and Lionheart. It has been plaguing disqus for years. As you can see, it isn’t above using outright murder and tragedy to fuel its deranged hatred of pieces of plastic and anyone who likes PS. It has made actual death threats over disqus.

            Ironically it lives in the Netherlands. So far it hasn’t reconciled its deranged cognitive dissonance in the Netherlands being treated like Tier 2 Trash by MS, yet constantly screaming lies and blind hatred about Sony.

            It also constantly spams Netherlands Dutch message boards with the same fanboy lies and hatred.

            Stop spreading fanboy lies, hatred, and FUD, it accomplishes nothing. It’s not healthy to hate pieces of plastic and people who like playing video games on them. It’s sad that you hate good video games for being on the wrong piece of plastic.

            Sony is making a profit on PS4 hardware, the gaming division is well funded, profitable and in an overall net profit. Sony is not broke or going bankrupt.

            PS4’s CPU outperforms Xbox according to developers and benchmarks.

            Developers are happy with the PS4.

            PS4 has many great games that gamers love. That’s why it’s 11+ million in sales and growing. Sony’s large number of well funded 1st parties will ensure PS4 has a ton of great AAA exclusives, as many or more than PS3.

            1st/2nd party studios include Japan Studio, Polyphony Digital, Naughty Dog, SCE Bend, SCE San Diego, SCE Santa Monica, Sucker Punch, Pixel Opus, Evolution Studios, Guerrilla Games, Guerrilla Cambridge, SCE London, Media Molecule, Ready at Dawn, Quantic Dream, etc. Sony’s 1st party studios are working on several unannounced AAA PS4 games. Expect big announcements in 2015.

            According to listwar PS4 has 123 games right now. PS4/Sony exclusives 2015: The Order: 1886, Bloodborne, Ratchet & Clank Redux, Uncharted 4, Tearaway Unfolded, Until Dawn, Persona 5, more.

            PS4 has many features including media with more on the way in firmware 2.0. PS4 has plenty of support from Sony and developers.

            PSN is hugely improved and Sony is continually investing more into it. PSN handled the Destiny launch just fine.

            Both Forza and Driveclub are good racing games, it’s only fanboys blindly hating one or the other.

            PS4 could easily handle Forza Horizon 2 and upgrade the graphics due to PS4’s more powerful hardware. Driveclub would have to be downgraded to run on Xbox.

            There will be no parity if PS4’s stronger hardware is being pushed. In essentially every way, the PS4’s hardware is more powerful than the XBO’s. If they’re the same resolution, PS4 will have a framerate or visual effects advantage, or its stronger hardware isn’t being pushed.

            Factual PS4 Hardware Advantages: +6 CUs, +540 GFlops (40% greater) or more (1.3TF to 1.84TF), +16 ROPs, +6 ACEs/CQs, better GPGPU support (volatile bit and onion+ gpu cache bypass bus), better performing CPU, faster unified memory, and less OS overhead.

            No amount of API updates is going to make up for that hardware gap.

            Sony’s ICE team, Naughty Dog, and Santa Monica Studios will fully utilize PS4’s stronger hardware, so it will stay ahead in graphics performance.

            Driveclub, The Order, Uncharted 4, etc. are technically superior as they run on more powerful hardware. Normal, unbiased, sane people recognize PS4 exclusive games look better, which makes sense given they’re running on more powerful hardware.

            PS4 is selling on price/performance, better PR and global appeal, long term 1st party support, large number of 1st party studios, more total games and dev support including Japanese and indie devs, wider variety of games, improved PSN since the PS3 days, and PS+ value. It’s seen as the best console for multiplatform games.

            All 3 consoles have good exclusive games, and pros and cons, it’s only fanboys blindly hating one or the other.

            As expected by anyone knowledgeable and sane, tier 2 launches are doing almost nothing for Xbox sales. It’s sad this is the result after 10+ months of “wait for Xbox to launch in more countries” from fanboys.

            PS4 and Xbox sales can be compared right now and PS4 is outselling Xbox more than 2:1. PS4 will outsell Xbox in China like every other country on the planet, and Xbox sales in China will do little. PS4 is keeping its 1st place in global sales.

            Sony is making a profit on PS4 hardware, the gaming division is well funded, profitable and in an overall net profit. Sony is not broke or going bankrupt.

            Sony has been good about honesty with the PS4 for the most part. They have much better PR this gen than PS3, that’s one reason it’s selling so well. No lies were made selling Destiny, it’s a good game that is selling well.

  • Kamille

    now it’s only a matter of time before Ubisoft issues a statement saying that it was all a misunderstanding and that there is no parity and stuff. But the truth is that parity has to happen because the new AssCreed has an exclusive ad campaign with Xbox. MS most likely paid Ubisoft to make the game to either look equal or better on the xbone.

  • corvusmd

    Maybe a little over-agressive with the comment, but you do hint at some great points. If we look at the game attach ratios…and see that over and over despite the fact that we are constantly reminded PS4 is outselling X1 2:1 PS4 only barely outsells X1 in games….apparently PS4 “gamers” don’t speak with their wallet as it is. All that’s gonna do is make X1 more favorable since it seems like X1 gamers are ACTUAL gamers….they play and buy games because they like games…not cause they are “entitled”

      Boy you are messed in the head.

  • RyanD

    Thia article is comical. I am extremely unhappy that the inferior ps4 is holding back the xbox one. As stated in the developers statement…the CPU is the bottleneck of which the xbox ones is superior. Additionally all the had to do was use xbox ones cloud and it likley would have been 1080p 30fps or 900p 60fps on xbox one. Ps4 is inferior to xbox one.

    • Kamille

      PS4 has slightly more powerful CPU actually. And on top of it the PS4’s GPU was designed to have 4 CUs for GPGPU of which the Xbone has none since it only has 12 CUs vs 18 on the PS4. And to make things worse, the PS4 still has 2 CUs more than the XBone just for graphic render.

      Uh when benchmarked the PS4 CPU outperformed the X1 CPU and if that’s all they had to do why haven’t they done that since launch?

        Xbox one cpu…1.75Ghz
        Ps4 cpu inferior…1.5Ghz

        Common knowledge

        • You are flat out wrong

          The PS4’s CPU is more efficient than the Xbone’s.

    • andy

      HAHAHA All they had to do was make it an ALWAYS ONLINE fuckfest and it would have been 1080p.
      Now THAT is comical gold right there. Do you even understand what you are saying? It took Microsoft SEVEN YEARS to finally give in and allow devs to REQUIRE storage in the Xbox to get later gen games running on the system, starting with their very own title Halo 4. You think they are just going to fuck you in the ass and require you to have an always on internet connection so soon after saying that you wouldn’t. I’m not sure what YOU are trying to say about Microsoft here.
      That doesn’t even get to the point of how stupid it is to think that DA CLOUDZ can give back graphical power. We have been over this already.

            Translation for anyone that doesnt want to read all of this….

            Sony and people that push Ps4 told me based off of what they understood the Ps4 is better, so people buying it expects it to be better. When it is not it drives us crazy because we are never going to not believe or doubt the information sony and people pushing Ps4 told us so we must lash out at devs even though we have no understanding of anything. And dont try to correct us or educate us because we dont want to know the truth. Ps4 is selling better than every else by a mile so everything positive that is said must be true.

          • corvusmd

            No people are choosing PS4 because of the PR hype and MS shot themselves in the foot, and it’ll take a long time to recover from that…but they are doing everything right. While I love all the consoles and my PC…for my money X1 is BY FAR the best value overall.

    If they locked it because the CPUs are the same, fine.

    I will get this game either way if it’s good, but it isn’t something I am happy about.

  • Dikan45

    Will the PC version also be 900p to ‘avoid debates’ too?

  • stevo

    Have you seen the size of forza horizon 2. The quality of the graphics, number of cars, customuzation options and cloud hosted AI driveatars ? Xbox one could eadily run this game at 1080p or a higher frame rate if not for ps4s inferior CPU and lack of dedicated server power. Ps4 is holding xbox one back because sony is likely paying developers to develop on ps4 and port to xbox one. Ps4 is an inferior indie box with a laughable online service and bankruptcy on its way.

    • Unknown?

      Yeah Sony is paying them yet Microsoft has the Assassin’s Creed deal? Fuuuunnnyyy!

  • starscream1180

    devs shouldnt have to post specs not like you can tell the difference anyways,…. gamers nowadays are a joke … if you dont like 900p dont buy it … hey look the game is awesome ohhh wait the resolution isnt 1080p … damn thats really going to interfere with my gameplay. ..:/

    • Unknown?

      I expect them to make the best game that they can under reasonable circumstances. They admitted it was only to defuse any debates which is not a valid reason.

    • gon

      the problem isn’t 1080p or 900p… the problem is the fact that they nerfed the game, they are not giving their best work to Ps4 gamers! this is sad dude, and a big disrespect for Ps4 fans.

      • starscream1180

        i get what youre saying … the way i see it is that the difference was so small they decided to leave it out …and from what the dev said looks like the xbox one mightve had an advantage cpu wise and ps4 gpu wise and decided to meet in the middle ,… i just cant assume thats what it is bc we are no one in the industry …
        either way if its a good game i dont see it as a big deal

          PS4’s CPU performs better than X1’s

            before or after the kinects 10% performance difference

            pretty sure after all the updates and clock speed increase and kinect removal … i think the x1 should be slightly more efficient.i could be wrong … do you have a link ?

          • GUN®

            First of all please don’t say 10% performance difference, I assure you the performance difference will not be nearly that much. The actual 10% that you are thinking about/twisting to make your point, is the 10% of GPU that MS claim will now be freed up which even if true, is still inferior to PS4’s GPU.

            I have the link that shows it was only an improvement to GPU meaning that CPU is still better on PS4 despite its (slightly) slower clock speed.

            Do you have a link that says that the X1 is now more efficient than the PS4 since the removal of the Kinect?

            You do realize that PS4’s have two processors, right? One for background tasks and one for the games themselves. That’s why the PS4’s CPU out-clocks the Xbox One’s.

          • guest

            Yeaa! One in the ps4 and other one in your a.n.o.

          • guest

            Hahaha nice joke!

  • jacksjus

    I can’t believe that Ubisoft would come out and say this.

    So does this mean the PS4 version should sell for $50 since it’s not all that it could have been?

  • DLConspiracy//

    What did they say about this last gen when the had parity on the PS3 and 360? Were people this upset? Just curious?

    • DLConspiracy//

      I usually see this last gen arguement about how Xbox this and Xbox that. What I am curious is were the PS only fans as outraged at this last gen? Furthermore were they throwing themselves in front of devs trains last gen for when devs nerfed games on the ports for PC last gen too?

      People are choosing PS4 not out of money or “being able to afford it” but because they think it’s a better console. They both cost the same amount of money. There is no such thing as “proper gaming”. The Playstation brand is very strong and very relevant.

      That “Guest” thing uses the disqus names Death Dealer and Lionheart. It has been plaguing disqus for years. As you can see, it isn’t above using outright murder and tragedy to fuel its deranged hatred of pieces of plastic and anyone who likes PS. It has made actual death threats over disqus.

      Ironically it lives in the Netherlands. So far it hasn’t reconciled its deranged cognitive dissonance in the Netherlands being treated like Tier 2 Trash by MS, yet constantly screaming lies and blind hatred about Sony.

      It also constantly spams Netherlands Dutch message boards with the same fanboy lies and hatred.

      Stop spreading fanboy lies, hatred, and FUD, it accomplishes nothing. It’s not healthy to hate pieces of plastic and people who like playing video games on them. It’s sad that you hate good video games for being on the wrong piece of plastic.

      Sony is making a profit on PS4 hardware, the gaming division is well funded, profitable and in an overall net profit. Sony is not broke or going bankrupt.

      PS4’s CPU outperforms Xbox according to developers and benchmarks.

      Developers are happy with the PS4.

      PS4 has many great games that gamers love. That’s why it’s 11+ million in sales and growing. Sony’s large number of well funded 1st parties will ensure PS4 has a ton of great AAA exclusives, as many or more than PS3.

      1st/2nd party studios include Japan Studio, Polyphony Digital, Naughty Dog, SCE Bend, SCE San Diego, SCE Santa Monica, Sucker Punch, Pixel Opus, Evolution Studios, Guerrilla Games, Guerrilla Cambridge, SCE London, Media Molecule, Ready at Dawn, Quantic Dream, etc. Sony’s 1st party studios are working on several unannounced AAA PS4 games. Expect big announcements in 2015.

      According to listwar PS4 has 123 games right now. PS4/Sony exclusives 2015: The Order: 1886, Bloodborne, Ratchet & Clank Redux, Uncharted 4, Tearaway Unfolded, Until Dawn, Persona 5, more.

      PS4 has many features including media with more on the way in firmware 2.0. PS4 has plenty of support from Sony and developers.

      PSN is hugely improved and Sony is continually investing more into it. PSN handled the Destiny launch just fine.

      Both Forza and Driveclub are good racing games, it’s only fanboys blindly hating one or the other.

      PS4 could easily handle Forza Horizon 2 and upgrade the graphics due to PS4’s more powerful hardware. Driveclub would have to be downgraded to run on Xbox.

      There will be no parity if PS4’s stronger hardware is being pushed. In essentially every way, the PS4’s hardware is more powerful than the XBO’s. If they’re the same resolution, PS4 will have a framerate or visual effects advantage, or its stronger hardware isn’t being pushed.

      Factual PS4 Hardware Advantages: +6 CUs, +540 GFlops (40% greater) or more (1.3TF to 1.84TF), +16 ROPs, +6 ACEs/CQs, better GPGPU support (volatile bit and onion+ gpu cache bypass bus), better performing CPU, faster unified memory, and less OS overhead.

      No amount of API updates is going to make up for that hardware gap.

      Exclusively 1080p 60 FPS console games on PS4: MGS V, CoD Ghosts, FFXIV, Tomb Raider, MLB The Show 14, Resogun, Trials Fusion, Diablo 3 (higher framerate), Project Cars, Metro Redux, TLOU Remastered, more.

      Sony’s ICE team, Naughty Dog, and Santa Monica Studios will fully utilize PS4’s stronger hardware, so it will stay ahead in graphics performance.

      Driveclub, The Order, Uncharted 4, etc. are technically superior as they run on more powerful hardware. Normal, unbiased, sane people recognize PS4 exclusive games look better, which makes sense given they’re running on more powerful hardware.

      PS4 is selling on price/performance, better PR and global appeal, long term 1st party support, large number of 1st party studios, more total games and dev support including Japanese and indie devs, wider variety of games, improved PSN since the PS3 days, and PS+ value. It’s seen as the best console for multiplatform games.

      All 3 consoles have good exclusive games, and pros and cons, it’s only fanboys blindly hating one or the other.

      As expected by anyone knowledgeable and sane, tier 2 launches are doing almost nothing for Xbox sales. It’s sad this is the result after 10+ months of “wait for Xbox to launch in more countries” from fanboys.

      PS4 and Xbox sales can be compared right now and PS4 is outselling Xbox more than 2:1. PS4 will outsell Xbox in China like every other country on the planet, and Xbox sales in China will do little. PS4 is keeping its 1st place in global sales.

      Sony is making a profit on PS4 hardware, the gaming division is well funded, profitable and in an overall net profit. Sony is not broke or going bankrupt.

      Sony has been good about honesty with the PS4 for the most part. They have much better PR this gen than PS3, that’s one reason it’s selling so well. No lies were made selling Destiny, it’s a good game that is selling well.

    • andy

      I was always upset with PS3 and 360 games last gen. PS3 was able to do 60 player online in 2008 and 256 player in 2010. Pretty much ANY multiplatform game after that looks awful due to the limitations of Xbox Live.
      Same can be said for early gen PS3 exclusives that still looked better than later gen 360 games by a mile. But then again, the multiplatform releases are mediocre with PS3 versions getting the wrong end of the port stick all because 360 came out first.
      Thank god for devs like Epic Games or Valve that gave PS3 gamers better games like PC Mod support and cross buy/play with PC users on their games. Everything else multiplatform last gen was just brought down to the 360’s useless “pauper” (lol) level.

    • Louie

      No many people choose the ps4 ecause of 1.)It being cheaper and 2.) all that nsa bs with the kinect

    • You are flat out wrong

      There wasn’t parity on last gen until about last year.

  • Guest

    Im not supporting parity. The PS4 is more powerful and i dont want my games dumb dumb, gimped because of the X1. Its not fair. But then again dont MS and Ubisoft have a deal with this game? I mean they keep showing it on the x1, so that right there should tell you. Money has already been exchanged. MS paid for the gimping, parity.

  • Ricoh123

    Is everyone so quick to forget that the xbone has a more powerful cpu than the ps4?

    Since the dev stated its the cpu holding this game back, it’s actually the ps4 holding the xbone back.

    Nothing but rabid dogs on these forums rofl

    • Guest

      Here we go again, with another ignorant MS fanboy spreading lies and misinformation? Show me one bit of proof that the X1’s CPU is more powerful. Bet you, you cant. And as a matter of fact, its been shown that the PS4 CPU is more powerful in 2-3 benchmarks and in games on the PS4 having a better framerate than the X1 versions. But screw the facts, lets instead just go on fanbou bullsh*t beliefs. The PS4 CPU is more powerful, FACT!

      • Ricoh123

        Incorrect.

        Both are 8 cores.

        Xbone clock speed =1.75 ghz vs ps4s weaker 1.5ghz.

        It’s been known for ages since the consoles were released that the xbone won in the cpu department.

        • where did he go ?

          Where did Guest go ??? Why did he not respond ?

    • Guest

      way to show your ignorance. Typical know nothing dumb xbot.

      • Ricoh123

        Xbone 8 core 1.75ghz vs the ps4 weaker 8 core 1.5ghz cpu.

        Only fanboys and trolls would ever say the ps4 cpu is stronger.

        • Guest

          Sorry kid, but it doesnt matter how many times you keep spewing out your lie and showing your ignorance. It wont change the fact that the PS4’s CPU is in fact faster than the X1’s CPU. And the PS4 is 1.6Ghz not 1.5Ghz, another thing you got wrong.

  • Shawn

    No, I will not. They have joined my EA no buy list. Let’s hashtag that, shall we?!

  • Edonus

    And this illustrates the problem with the industry. We have ponies running around talking about parity sucks, they actually ignore the dev when hey said the issue was CPU not GPU and the X1 has a better CPU solution
    and this leads to the real problem .

    NO ONE HAS EVEN ASKED…. “HOW DOES THE GAME LOOK?”

    RYSE won an award for being the best looking game and it ran 900p. So we know this resolution can deliver. This is a pathetic ignorant movement.

    If you hate parity so much why dont you tell all these devs give the Ps4 as resolution as possible and use MS azure dedicated for the X1 games. no more p2p. If you want these systems to be used to their fullest tell them thats what you want.

    • Guest

      The X1 does not have a better CPU. Where is your proof. At least 2 benchmarks say otherwise and have shown the PS4’s CPU to be performing better. And most games have a better framerate on the PS4. Whats patehtic is your simplistic fanboy thinking. You fanboys need to get off MS nuts and open your eyes and see the truth. The X1 is weaker, period, CPU and all. And stop with all the lies and stupidity. and so what if SIGGRAPH thinks Ryse has the best graphics, that is just their opinion, not a fact. I think, KZ and Infamous look better than Ryse. And my opinion is the only opinion that matters on these matters not some groups i dont know.

      • Edonus

        Listen to the words….. Xbox One has better CPU solution. The CPU is clocked faster and Ddr3 memory works with cpus better than Gddr5. Thus if the game is CPU bound the X1 has an advantage.

        The problem is you Ponies where sold all of these lies about how great you were and every time the X1 matches the Ps4 or delivers something the Ps4 hasnt it starts to crack the little ignorant bubble you have created for yourselves. This resolution stuff is nothing but PR and look what its done to you ponies. I could try and explain it to you but ya”ll dont care about reality 1080p give you your placebo pill and it make you feel better when it does nothing. You ponies are like zombie gamers.

        As for SIGGRAPH yes its opinion … everything is opinion. But these people are respected for theirs. So your opinion can be that Knack is game of the year and it great that you enjoy so much but the fact is, some people whose opinion s on graphics gave an opinion that Ryse looked the at 900p is a fact…. period

        • Guest

          Listen to the words, the PS4 CPU performs better, period, fact, end of story. And repeat, i dont care what SIGGRAPH thinks, its their opinion and not mine. Their opinion is not fact. Deal with it. Im sure more people would agree with me that KZ and Infamous looks better. And once again, ultimately it is only my opinion thats matters when it comes to that.

      • Jason778

        Xbox one cpu is superior to ps4 cpu. Clock speeds 1.75ghz for xbox one and 1.5ghz for ps4. Ps4 is holding back xbox one with parity.

        • GUN®

          Where is your proof? I’ve only seen benchmarks where the PS4’s CPU outperforms the X1’s despite its slower clock speed.

        • GUN®

          Also PS4 is 1.6 not 1.5 so you can stop spreading false info.

  • ps4 is gimping xbox one

    Get real angry ps4 owners…threaten the developer so that another developer hates ps4 which is what is happening. Shame its ps4 inferior cpu that is the problem. DEVELOPERS…forget ps4…come over to xbox one exclusively and make the games however you want with xbox ones more powerful cpu and cloud infrastructure. No bitching…no threats…just happiness with what you do. The ps4 community deserves the bankruptcy that is coming.

    • Guest

      Nonsense kid, complete and utter nonsense. You xbots are stupid. If anything, devs hate MS and their fanboys. Why do you think that Ubisoft is so afraid to piss them off when the PS4 has over twice the sales and sells more games? Cuz the ms fanboys are rabid. Just look at this thread for proof. All spreading nonsense and bs and delusional.

    • demfax

      Stop spreading fanboy lies, hatred, and FUD, it accomplishes nothing. It’s not healthy to hate pieces of plastic and people who like playing video games on them. It’s sad that you hate good video games for being on the wrong piece of plastic.

  • Guest

    Ok, you’re just really sad and delusional, you are literally living in la la land. Pathetic! Doesnt matter what the facts are. Just the crap you believe. Take your meds man.

  • Ricoh123

    A real shame the weaker 1.5ghz cpu on the ps4 is holding back the xbone version with its 1.75ghz 8 core cpu.

    Dev had stated this is a cpu problem.

    How ironic the weak part of the ps4 is the problem here.

    • GUN®

      Is that why AC4 was 1080p on PS4 and 900 on X1?

      • Guy Brohski

        Is that why Unity clearly has more AI and NPC’s than the game you’re referring to?

        • GUN®

          Irrelevant to my point.

          • Edonus

            Actually that is exactly the point. AC4 was a cross gen game. Ps4 is easy to scale old on. Thats why it was so easy to just patch it up 1080p.
            Unity is a true next gen game. Designed to use the bells and whistles of the new gen. So no more easy points for Ps4 when it has to run a real next gen game.

            Do you think that Ac4 looks better than Unity? You would have to be a fool to think that.

          • GUN®

            If it was so easy for AC4 then why wasn’t it 1080p on X1?

          • Edonus

            Because the SDKs were still not mature and devs werent as comfortable with the eSram as they are now. Ps4 is designed like an old console just bigger better parts. The X1 is designed with the efficiency we will see in years from now. So cross gen games and games designed in the old style using old engines and techniques are easier push on Ps4.

            As of what will happen when games are designed with the new HW and tech in mind is yet to be seen. I know its confusing because so many sites and people told you Ps4 was some kind of super computer and that the X1 was basically an Atari 2600. I think the lies are starting to fall apart and that makes people that believed them so wholeheartedly get a little crazy.

          • GUN®

            “The X1 is designed with the efficiency we will see in years from now. ”

            Thanks for the laugh.

          • corvusmd

            Actually no…the problem is that it perfectly nails your point.

        • corvusmd

          …and a completely different engine with no load screens and more graphical details.

    • Guest

      the ps4 runs at 2ghz and the x1 at 1.4ghz

    • Hao

      ya mean 1.6ghz on Ps4 side, right? plus…

      “Interestingly while demonstrating texture generation speed, DXT compressed, using Substance Engine, for one CPU, it was found that the PlayStation 4 is able to generate 14MB/s of textures compared to 12MB/s for the Xbox One.”

      http://gamingbolt.com/substance-engine-increases-ps4-xbox-one-texture-generation-speed-to-14-mbs-12-mbs-respectively

      Now…. can you send me at least one publication that says that X1 CPU is superior? i’m talking about superior in final numbers, not about the 10% clock speed bonus that microsoft gave to x1.

    • DLConspiracy//

      Actually the PS4 CPU runs 1.6ghz and the Xbox one runs 1.75ghz. Just to be clear.

      • Guest

        Yes, and AMD CPU thread performance is crap compared to Intel CPUs. Always has been, so Ubisoft aren’t lying.

        • Guest

          What?! How is that even a response to what he said? You’re a whacko. Make sense moron.

      • Guest

        Thank you, for at least being honest. If we are going to argue about things, at least we should all be accurate and honest.

        • DLConspiracy//

          I never purposefully lie. I just try and discuss what’s been discussed or what I have read.

    • andy

      What the hell does AI and the CPU got to do with GRAPHICS RESOLUTION? Its the bottleneck Xbone eSRAM fucking everybody in the ass here yet again and you know it.

      • corvusmd

        Do explain. Then please give me Ubisoft’s motivation for doing this for Unity, but not Black Flag before Unity and giving special treatment to PS4 Far Cry 4 after Unity releases…..don’t worry I’ll wait.

    • VelvetMark

      And yet…… Xb1 games are consistently lower frame rate, lower resolution, or both.

      • guest

        You know the X1 is just using 1 core of 8 until DirectX12

      • corvusmd

        And X1 has a higher games attach ratio despite that.

    • VelvetMark

      You may want to take some reading comprehension classes. The dev states that the FRAME RATE is locked to 30 because of CPU problems. They did not say resolution was caused by CPU issues. College. Do it.

    • Guy Brohski

      Nope. The PS3’s CPU is slower than the XB1’s. Moron.

    • DrCrunkDaddy
    • corvusmd

      Even without the actual CPUs the X1 has another solution to this problem that they aren’t being allowed to use….that’s flat out parity and it’s not X1 holding things back.

    • You are flat out wrong

      There’s no real difference between the CPUs. The PS4’s is more efficient actually. This is first deliberately gimped console multplat and after this backlash, the last. :)

  • Guest

    Wow, the Micro$oft Defense Force is out in full force today. Y’all must be feeling defensive. Spreading all your lies and deceit and hate and misinformation. The fact is, the game is being gimped by the X1. End of story

      Forza 5 the 5th game in a franchise that gimps the car selection yet again in favor of €200 of DLC with a whooping 11 tracks at release too. But then leaves out the fact that Gran Turismo 6 has 1000+ cars, also runs at 1080p 60fps, ACTUALLY HAS dynamic weather and shadows that Failza 5 doesn’t AND all on the last gen PS3.
      And yet THIS is THE game that he uses to hype up his failbox. ^_^
      And don’t forget that the most stunning looking next gen racer is about to launch in half an hour exclusively on PS4 ^_^

        According to listwar PS4 has 123 games right now. PS4/Sony exclusives 2015: The Order: 1886, Bloodborne, Ratchet & Clank Redux, Uncharted 4, Tearaway Unfolded, Until Dawn, Persona 5, more.

        PS4 has many features including media with more on the way in firmware 2.0. PS4 has plenty of support from Sony and developers.

        PSN is hugely improved and Sony is continually investing more into it. PSN handled the Destiny launch just fine.

        Both Forza and Driveclub are good racing games, it’s only fanboys blindly hating one or the other.

        PS4 could easily handle Forza Horizon 2 and upgrade the graphics due to PS4’s more powerful hardware. Driveclub would have to be downgraded to run on Xbox.

        There will be no parity if PS4’s stronger hardware is being pushed. In essentially every way, the PS4’s hardware is more powerful than the XBO’s. If they’re the same resolution, PS4 will have a framerate or visual effects advantage, or its stronger hardware isn’t being pushed.

        Factual PS4 Hardware Advantages: +6 CUs, +540 GFlops (40% greater) or more (1.3TF to 1.84TF), +16 ROPs, +6 ACEs/CQs, better GPGPU support (volatile bit and onion+ gpu cache bypass bus), better performing CPU, faster unified memory, and less OS overhead.

        No amount of API updates is going to make up for that hardware gap.

        Exclusively 1080p 60 FPS console games on PS4: MGS V, CoD Ghosts, FFXIV, Tomb Raider, MLB The Show 14, Resogun, Trials Fusion, Diablo 3 (higher framerate), Project Cars, Metro Redux, TLOU Remastered, more.

        Sony’s ICE team, Naughty Dog, and Santa Monica Studios will fully utilize PS4’s stronger hardware, so it will stay ahead in graphics performance.

        Driveclub, The Order, Uncharted 4, etc. are technically superior as they run on more powerful hardware. Normal, unbiased, sane people recognize PS4 exclusive games look better, which makes sense given they’re running on more powerful hardware.

        PS4 is selling on price/performance, better PR and global appeal, long term 1st party support, large number of 1st party studios, more total games and dev support including Japanese and indie devs, wider variety of games, improved PSN since the PS3 days, and PS+ value. It’s seen as the best console for multiplatform games.

        All 3 consoles have good exclusive games, and pros and cons, it’s only fanboys blindly hating one or the other.

        As expected by anyone knowledgeable and sane, tier 2 launches are doing almost nothing for Xbox sales. It’s sad this is the result after 10+ months of “wait for Xbox to launch in more countries” from fanboys.

        PS4 and Xbox sales can be compared right now and PS4 is outselling Xbox more than 2:1. PS4 will outsell Xbox in China like every other country on the planet, and Xbox sales in China will do little. PS4 is keeping its 1st place in global sales.

        Sony is making a profit on PS4 hardware, the gaming division is well funded, profitable and in an overall net profit. Sony is not broke or going bankrupt.

        Sony has been good about honesty with the PS4 for the most part. They have much better PR this gen than PS3, that’s one reason it’s selling so well. No lies were made selling Destiny, it’s a good game that is selling well.

        I guess my comment needed more clarification . . .

        Its embarrassing that 90% of gaming articles are about a couple hundred pixels that are not distinguishable to most gamers.

        Its embarrassing that we have games with production value near the billions, and it still can’t produce a full game with lots of content (Destiny and many more).

        Its embarrassing that we still have these useless console wars with gamers being twisted against each other, rather than uniting (Fanboyism).

  • Dirkster_Dude

    Personally, the whole debate about parity and whether it matters is one of the dumbest debates out there. In all the multiplatform games I have seen so far I have not been able to tell the difference between 900p and 1080p on games that were side-by-side at the PS4 and XB1 displays. 900p will most likely upscale by your HDTV to 1080p anyway. You lose a bit, but most developers have learned the tricks to make the pixels lost or spread out be behind an actual object on the screen. People have to point out the differences and then I notice maybe around the edges or make the comment: “You’re arguing over that?” all the while thinking these people are morons, which they are by the way. Morons for making the argument NOT for having an opinion. These people will be the same ones that complain about everything WRONG because nothing can be RIGHT. What is more important is the refresh rate of your HDTV, which is something game developers can do nothing about.

  • andy

    I guess we all know why Microsoft paid that money to get Xbone versions of AC and FIFA on all the advertising. So they also paid for parity too.
    Typical when Konami’s first next gen football game thrashes FIFA 15 graphically and the Xbone version’s resolution is lowered to keep up.

  • Not happy

    I’m not buying this game and I hope all others follow suit, do not force your views on gamers. Microsoft learnt this the hard way and Ubisoft will hopefully learn too!

    DO NOT BUY THIS GAME PS4 OWNERS!!!!

    • Marc D

      You whiney Sony fanboys don’t even deserve this masterpiece. Maybe MS will buy exclusivity and leave you salty fanboys our in the cold just like Rise of The Tomb Raider.

  • mwalker

    Next gen already tapped out. At least pc can. Be upgraded

  • andy

    Also not sure if anybody anywhere pointed this out but the devs said (bravely I might add) last E3 that they were actually targeting 1080p and 60fps for this game on BOTH consoles. I didn’t believe it back then but why would they have said such a thing? And why is nobody else talking about this?

    • Marc D

      Yeah, I’m sure a few scrubs who don’t buy the game because XB1/PS4’s crappy CPU’s couldn’t reach full 1080p will really hurt Ubisoft. /s

  • supersungin

  • cooldude012

    I’m cancelling my order too. I don’t care about frame-rate but this is unacceptable what they are doing. Sony made their console for gaming, Microsoft wanted an all in one entertainment. It’s not Sony’s fault XBone isn’t as powerful. Microsoft made that decision themselves just like Sony made their own to make a powerful console. Both consoles should have their games at the max despite them being different.

    We all know PC gives better graphics but us console gamers aren’t yapping about console not looking as good as the PC (are we? are you? I’m certainly not. I accepted PC is better graphics and yet I’m happy with what my console gives me at it’s best).

    If Microsoft isn’t happy with that, then maybe they should have thought about making a more powerful console. It’s their problem so they need to figure out how to make people buy their console without affecting other gamers in different platforms.

    PS4 should not be dumbed down because of Xbone. All PS owners did not ask for that and certainly did not purchase PS4 for that. You get what you pay for (PS4 more powerful console and Xbone for your all in one entertainment). Too bad Ubisoft don’t see that.

    I guess Ubisoft just cares more about easy money and being lazy rather than giving the consumers the best they deserve.

    I read the funniest comment at N4G, about how PS4 owners shouldn’t buy this game. Brilliant plan! Ubi will look and see that no one but Xbox owners want the game, then make future sequels Xbox exclusive.

  • datdude

    Sorry Ubisoft, not good enough. Not even close. I’m not buying the game, and The Division is looking less likely for me as they have aligned the game with the xbone…so more false parity is apparently on the way for that game also. There are plenty of other games and plenty of other developers who will get my dollars. I won’t spend one cent on a game from a dev who can’t bother to do the best job on every platform for which a game is published…sorry. Lazy and ignorant on their part. They will live to regret the path they have taken.

    I honestly wasn’t annoyed by this because it could have meant that PS4 would have performed better in other ways. That was until I read this “Ubisoft had revealed that they did this “to avoid debates”. “

  • Husain Nusair

    I have stopped my support for ubisoft long ago. The last thing I care about is resolution as long as the graphics fidelity look fantastic. But the issue with me is not graphics or resolution. It’s the quality, they have gone pretty lazy with Assassins Creed every year is the same thing with the game no matter how much they change the setting and story, Each time I get a buggy product and missing quality attributes.

    Story is not engaging for me anymore, soundtrack is amazing on the other hand. Going to a different IP, Watch Dogs turned out to be absolute crap after all that hype and trailers prior to release… This is my opinion, it could be right it could be wrong but this is how I see it.

    I wish people would boycott shit products. We don’t want AC annually, we want a GOOD Assassins Creed game that would be an unforgettable experience! This make games just for money is really killing the experience!

  • Matt29

    Nope. This has p*ssed me off as much as Microsoft did with the Xbox One reveal. I boycotted Microsoft and jumped ship to the Playstation 4. Now i shall boycott Ubisoft. Will be getting GTAV, Driveclub and Project Cars for Christmas instead now.

  • Agrippa

    Reason why I’m confused over this guy blowing up is the devs said they ran into CPU issues not GPU issues. Last I heard the CPU in the X1 is slightly faster then the PS4’s. Correct me if I’m wrong but I’m pretty sure that is the case which means it wouldn’t be the X1 holding back the PS4 IF CPU related like the Dev does indeed say.

    • You are flat out wrong

      Nope. PS4’s CPU is slightly more efficient and if clock speed was important, last gen CPUs are more powerful than current gen.

      With the MS marketing deal it’s pretty blatant this is to make the Xbone look good.

  • Alex Serrano

    • corvusmd

      If you had interest in this game I’d say that’s a horrible choice.

  • corvusmd

    Debates about res and framerate seem to be a constant lately no doubt…but is seems like this news made it hit an all time low. It’s spawned a never ending supply of ignorance, and fanboys being over aggressive and uninformed seem to be heading down the road to destroy what they CLAIM they love.

    In the new gen of games, the games just look worlds better than last gen, and while native 1080p is a nice thing, it’s getting WAYYYYYY over blown. Most times you can’t even tell the difference in a blind test between upscalled 900 and native 1080…yet right now certain gamers are on the hills with torches over this.

    This is NOT Black Flag, it’s NOT the same engine, and it’s going for a MUCH more taxing approach from the perspective of having no loading screens AND much bigger populations with much more advanced AI…so ASSUMING that PS4 should be doing 1080p and anything less is a crime …and it must have been gimped because of X1 is just ignorant (not to mention…ubisoft was fine with no parity on that game as far as res goes).

    If you actually READ and pay attention to what the game devs are saying (instead of just insisting it’s PR talk cause it’s not what you want to hear), you’ll see that it’s not the GPU factor that limited at all for either console. However, even though I’m not a dev, I understand that the GPU and CPU have to work hand and hand to some degree. So if the generally similar CPUs are both being limited by the very taxing AI processes…it’s easy to believe that with the CPU being the bottleneck the GPU will hit a ceiling.

    Now that being said, X1 has in place a system/alternative that can help resolve this issue, and it’s working on at least 3 AAA titles today…and doing an excellent job. Yes, cloud AI processing works, and just because it’s not literally IN THE BOX doesn’t mean that it’s not part of the picture and doesn’t count. If MS can be targeted and made fun for cloud servers…then at least be fair and give due respect when they provide a benefit. Esp one that has been proven to work.

    Now, like all of you, I have no insider info, and I can only go off what they say, but from the sound of it…it seems more like X1 is getting the shaft in this case. As it sits right now, the CPUs getting maxed is causing both systems to run at 900p 30fps (if the CPU wasn’t an issue, sure we can agree that PS4 may have a higher res…but it IS the issue). MS invested a TON of time and money in creating tech that solves this very issue…but it seems like right now they aren’t being allowed to use it…..that’s not X1 holding PS4 back. If I was the head of Ubisoft, I’d look into making both games 900p 30fps without any Cloud Assist…then on X1 see about boosting the FPS to 60 using Cloud servers. I also don’t think anyone would complain IF PS4 was able to do 1080p 30fps and X1 did 900p 60fps. X1 gamers have grown to learn that 900p is a great Res in it’s own right, and that solid FPS is much more important.

  • Ricoh123

    Getting annoyed that games on the xb1 have to suffer because the ps4 has no cloud power.

    Also annoyed that this game has to suffer due to a weaker ps4 cpu.

    Its not PS4 Gamers fault that xbox1 has a limitation where PS4 does not… why short change people who made the right choice (kidding…but seriously PS4 all the way!) Its like buying a fast car and not being able to drive it as fast as you want because everyone else has a slower model…it blows. I hope ubisoft will see their mistake and not make it again, they have earned my loyalty and are testing it now.

    Quit supporting inferior hardware. I pre-ordered both consoles. Sold the XBox1. Microsoft is going to have to start paying off every developer to keep the PS4 beast down. This console war is officially over now.

  • brianc6234

    Ubisoft did this because Microsoft secretly paid them to do it. That’s most likely what happened with Watch Dogs too since the PS4 version of that game was so much better looking until the last second. If you can’t match your opponent’s power just pay third parties to dumb their games down.

  • Andrew Clear

    I don’t trust anything ubisoft says anymore, they have been lying all year long. They probably pushed the ps4 too hard, and had to lock it at 900, while toning down some of the xbox one shaders, etc, to keep it at 900. Thus, they avoid a backlash when the game releases at 900p, and everyone blames the xbox one….

    But, then, they actually come out and say this no parity crap, and it blows that out the water, and made their PR worse. Goood job Ubi.

    • brianc6234

      Nobody can push the PS4 too hard yet. It’s too new. They can keep adding more even.

      • Andrew Clear

        Anyone can push the PS4 too hard. Developers are always pushing the limits, and having to optimize later.

        It is easy to overtax a cpu o r gpu. It is easy to code too many cache misses that slows down the game as well.

        Most people have no idea what those specs they read about, truly mean.

        So, yes, you can push the PS4 to it’s limits really easily, and after that, you spend time optimizing your program, and making it better.

        It’s not hard to do. Developers are pushing top of the line, home PCs to their limit, why would you even think they aren’t doing that with a PS4…

  • Elli

    Gamers are some of the dumbest people on the planet. Cry us a river about your 900p inferior version. You didn’t make the game and now you’re mad because you didn’t have a say in it being 1080p. Grow a pair. If you don’t like it, don’t buy the game. Its that simple. Problem is many of you idiots on here complaining are going to buy it anyways especially if it turns out to be a great game.
