Before the launch of every AAA game, it is first brought under the spotlight by leaks that show every and all details of the game. Initial tests are done on the game which are then followed by some full blown tech analysis. Now since Watch Dogs is releasing next week, we already have a bunch of initial tests showing visual quality of the game across all major video game platforms except Nintendo Wii U, as Wii U version of the game will arrive later this year.
Everyone is comparing Ubisoft's open world game on different platforms. GamingBolt managed to come up with a Watch Dogs GIF video comparison that shows the same scene running across PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One and Xbox 360 versions of the game. The source indicates that PC version of the game will be tested in their final verdict and the published GIFs are of high quality.
A couple of weeks ago, Watch Dogs was officially confirmed to run at 900p resolution on PlayStation 4 and 792p resolution on Microsoft's latest Xbox One, both the versions were confirmed to be locked at 30fps. Ubisoft confirmed to GamingBolt that the next-gen console versions of the game also employ custom AA solution. Looking at the comparison below, both next-gen versions of the game perform great, but there are some clear differences among both.
A closer analysis tells that while Watch Dogs running on PlayStation 4 has better anti-aliasing and perfect in-game balance, the game on Xbox One seem to have better color balance. Talking about last-gen versions of the game, it looks pretty similar on both PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. However, the game lacks proper level of detail, yet still, the last-gen versions of Watch Dogs look nothing like a bummer.
