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.
