The game really is starting to look rather mediocore to say the least. It will probably be another game that's gameplay is let down by a restrictive story that is nothing special or new. Hopefully it is more open world and less story driven but, who knows. The story doesn't really appeal to me at the point in time - movies do the whole revenge thing way better than any game can.

Ouch. Quite the downgrade in graphics. Not entirely surprising, though. Ubisoft has a history of downgrading graphics in finished games (see Farcry 3). The debut footage was simply a tiny slice of an open-world so it was possible for them to put a lot of polish into it. However, trying to maintain that level of quality for the entire open world just wasn't going to happen. Then you throw in multiplatform development (including last gen) and the limitations keep piling up. People expecting the PC version to look like the debut footage are going to be sorely disappointed.

Yeah I have no idea, but the difference in details is huge.
There is a new PS4 footage on youtube that was just released yesterday I think, and it looks kind of in the middle in terms of quality, not as good as the PC and not as bad as the 360.

I think I will just wait and see how this game turns out ones it is released. I was and still am excited for this but I have zero reasons to preorder it at this point.

To be fair though the very first gameplay footage they've showed off iirc they confirmed it was running on a high end PC.
The other gameplay footage they've compared it to in the very first gif that was posted in this thread was confirmed to be from the 360 version of the game.

Here are the 2 trailers I am talking about:
low detail xbox 360 footage: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UIK8Mm1-Jdg

(possibly) pc footage:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XgRynhNnGTE

Here is a comparison one between PC/PS4: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AjUaA5lDeDY

Dubious, though. If the PC trailer looks that much more amazing, as is what you presume, then why on earth don't they release trailers with PC footage?! Don't tell me it's because that would be misrepresenting because 1. they never give a shit if it is and 2. it's not, if you plan to play the PC version.

Yeah I'm sure they delayed the game to revert the game to a 2004 graphics level for some inexplicable reason and that single out of context GIF going around is representative of the game on next gen and PC.

Yeah of course you can ignore the obvious scare in the comparisons. I'm not saying the game will suck or anything, but the comparisons are legit. And what "single out of context GIF" are you talking about? There's allot of stuff out there that compares the old and new Watch_Dogs. Did you even check any comparisons? Not seeing the difference?

The difference between the earlier footage and the later stuff is mindblowing to me. It's like their content and all the back-up died in a fire a few months ago and they started from scratch again a few months ago I applaud them for the result, I admit.

Haha yeah. But to be honest it's a bit concerning because even the trailers look worse. I think I will just wait on some first week reviews on this game, I have nothing to gain with a preorder.

Good grief, I was really hoping that this would be a great game.

Sort of feels like A:CM where we saw an initial version with all the graphical bells and whistles before things were scaled back to meet console resource requirements.
Far Cry 3 was the same.
There are plenty of videos on youtube that compares the E3 footage to the finished game.

If you don't like where gaming is heading, stop giving your money to the people who are taking it in that direction.

Someone posted some PS4 to PS4 screens that didn't look great either and they haven't been very good about releasing new media on this. Getting a bit worried.

I will be buying this when it goes on sale for $9.99 or less, rest assured.

Something tells me that in spite of the polish and digital Christie Mack, the story of a man and his magic phone that can hack everything in the entire city will get pretty old, pretty quick.

Still, I did enjoy Far Cry 3 when it finally dropped below my price threshold, in spite of the Uplay nonsense.

Yeah, I thought Origin was bad until I had to start dealing with UPlay. Uplay is annoying and it blows.

WTF, the last one of their games I played looked like paper cutout's on a 2d paper cutout back ground.

Still shouldn't look that bad you would think.

Yeah. Posting a picture without any context it's kind of hard to figure out what it might be from. It doesn't seem likely to be anything representative of what we'll be playing, though, given the visual polish Ubisoft puts on their games.
