Watch Dogs Confirmed to be Running at 60 FPS and 1080p on PS4

By   /   May 10, 2014

Sony Playstation’s Official Website has confirmed that Watch Dogs will run at 1080p and 60 Frames per Second on Playstation 4.

When we specifically talk about the Playstation 4 version, the resolution of the game has also been confirmed to be 1080p by multiple sources including Cinematic Animation Lead Lars Bonde.

As for Frames per Second, earlier this year, a well known industry insider who goes by the name of Shinobi602, he claimed the following:

  • Playstation 4 = 1080p with 30 Frames per Second
  • Xbox One = 960p with 30 Frames per Second
  • PC = Up to 4K with variable Frames per Second


Speaking of the official Playstation weblog, it is quite bluntly rather derisively stated that only Playstation 4 is capable of providing such an experience. Of course, all of us do realize where this is coming from. Xbox One has been brutally picked apart in the past for its inferior resolution when compared to Playstation 4.

The original statement from the website reads:

The world of Watch_Dogs comes alive on PS4 with the best graphics on any console and exclusive missions found only on PlayStation. Hack everything as you make your way through Chicago’s underground as you experience Watch_Dogs in a way that only PS4 can provide, at 60 Frames per Second in 1080p.

Ever since this discovery, people are taking it as a mistake since all previous rumors suggest that the game would be 30FPS. However, considering the fact that it is coming from the official website, it seems highly unlikely.

Besides, there have been quite some time since those rumors a game can sure as shooting be polished in this much time.

On the other side of the picture, the pre-order page for Xbox One version of the game does not divulge any technical aspects of the game.

Whatever the case is, Animation Director Colin Graham holds that it is very hard to spot the difference between the two console versions with a naked eye. One can only hope it’s true.

Watch Dogs is slated to release on May 27 on Playstation 4, Playstation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC with Wii U version to follow soon.
