PC version would have been gimped as well because we all know its based off the lowest common denominator, it will never match the clarity of that original E3 video which is a shame because I was planning on buying this for PC but them gimping the visuals just makes me wonder what else has been gimped.

What I don't get is how can these games be gimped? The demo's were surely running off PS4 hardware, so how can such a downgrade even happen?

I can assure you the PS4 is capable of far more, as is the xbox one and the PC. I thought it was pretty bad, but I suppose I'm biased towards the PC so my perspective is skewed

It is, so is the Xbox One and the PC but maybe not in the time frame, resources and tools available. Partnered with the size of project etc.

Mate, I have been playing enough ubisoft games to tell you...

If you are judging their games by screenshots

You are going to have a bad time.

Heh true. Far Cry 3 had very similar images for promotion. Going by that, the image-quality might be vaguely achievable at playable frame-rates in a couple of years on a pricey PC, but some represent a level of fidelity that's completely impossible in-game.

Wait, I totally thought this was PS3/360 footage. I mean, those are some fantastic bullshots!

Graphics aside, I'm still excited. That gruff voice, explosions, Cage-like accents, Saints Row tackling animation, pretty French girl, nice bearded man...

In all seriousness, is it wrong that I'm most excited about the voyeuristic aspect of the game? I hope there are files that we can hack into for a great number of different NPCs. I'm also looking forward to explore Chicago, as a new open world. Hopefully, the parkour will allow us to traverse tall buildings!

I hope the PS4 version doesn't look close to that trailer.

I second that - in all honesty I don't think I will be picking this up anyway - far too many games on the PS3/ PS4 that I will want by the Summer including Infamous and MGS GZ along with Dark Souls 2 to play.

People who don't complain about the graphics obviously have low standards - I spent £350 on the PS4 for much improved graphics!

The numbers keep coming, Mr. Reese.

It's why I've wanted this game since it was shown.

Not seeing "garbage graphics" in these videos, but guess that's just my eyes, oh well.

Story trailer looked great. I don't think I'm going to bother watching the gameplay video based on the reactions though.

Previews like this irritate me to no end. Sure, it's Game Informer, but it's amazing to see them nail games like ZombiU at every chance but try to sell that AAA game that happens to be one of GameStops priorities in regards to preorders.

Maybe it's really as fun as they make it out to be, but it reminds me of the hyperbolic GTAV preview articles on IGN.

Welcome to games journalism. You are better off waiting to here how good a game is from friends rather than reading the nonsense reviews over the coming months

Ugh... I bought a PS4 for this, my heart was crushed when they delayed it. I considered cancelling my PS4... for 'this'? This can't be the PS4 trailer, surely?

It looks soooo bad, it doesn't even look good for a last gen game. GTAV, Beyond, Last of Us etc. craps all over it. Its not even just the IQ that looks bad, I mean his cloth physics have gone back to last gen... looks fixed and badly animated now.

Was this game a broken mess or something, is that why it was delayed and now they're just trying to get it out of the door in a playable format?

I will wait for the reviews now I think, as I am now expecting this game to be a buggy mess if this was them showing the games 'best' bits.

:-(

Visually, it looks good for this gen.

It looks sub-par for next gen or PC.

It's a cross-platform port. And nothing we saw in the initial reveal trailer was anything that can't be done on a PC/PS4/XB1. We've already seen plenty of other games - a few of them open world - which look as good if not significantly better than the reveal of WD. It looked great but it didn't look unbelievable.

This trailer got me hooked and the short gameplay vid suggested a longer mission structure for some things in the game. That would keep me playing.

You're nuts. Sleeping Dogs is the best looking last gen open world game. This game blows that away. Its better in every way graphically.

Could people stop whining about the graphics everytime a 2min compressed trailer without real gameplay is released ?

"lol it's a PS2/PS1 game, pre-order canceled, smoke and mirrors"
