From the other thread:

because why not, E3 2012 vs March 2014


I have no idea what the hell happened to this game.

Should probably not trust the 7-11 security cameras quite so much

Same thing that happened to lots of games. Trade show reveal that was never going to be possible on retail hardware.

What videos were those taken from?

It doesn't look much worse and can be due to one being from youtube and the other being from somewhere else. The biggest differences are the car, which looks a bit worse, and the spotlight being huge, which makes the lighting look worse even though it might not be.

Wonder what the PC version looks like? But seriously that trailer made me think it was running on a 360/PS3

Game reveal in 2012 was truning on a high end PC far more powerfull than a PS4 or Xbox One. Of course there is a downgrade.

The story trailer has to be the PS4/X1/PC Version. The 360/PS3 trailer from last year looked way worse.

I knew it, Frame City Killer was never cancelled !
just joking, the gif just reminded me of the "accomplished" picture... I have no idea how Watch Dogs is supposed to look.

This is what I really hate. I wish certain Publishers would stop bullshitting their customers.

Holy shit.

It was obvious there was a graphical downgrade but even I didn't think it was quite that huge.

2 questions:

1. Is the latest footage PS4/XB1 or PS3/360?
2. Was the E3 footage actually running on a PS4 or Ultra-high PC?

Till we get confirmation on these, its hard to know much.

Who left the interns in charge of the tightening up the graphics, guys? This is serious business!

That's probably the ps3 version. If not, then I guess it's confirmed this game is in development hell.
