...can you do me a favour and please sum up what's been happening with Watch Dogs? You're most likely the best man for the job.

I got a bit out of the loop in the controversy.

First reviews are trickling in and they seem decent enough. Did the PS4 version suffer a massive downgrade in the end?

I have no opinions on gameplay, well because I haven't played it.

In terms of visuals (esp the lighting engine) it's been massively downgraded not only since the famous reveal but since we saw videos of it apparently running on PS4 last year. The PC version is basically just the PS4 version except you can run it at a higher res, framerate with extra aa obviously.

Guys with the best PC's money can buy are struggling to get 40fps on High / Ultra and it uses 3.8GB's of vRAM on Ultra settings lol...

I was expecting this to be another thread by Doonii.

Thanks for the overview, mate, very helpful! I'll be grabbing the PS4 version.

Apologies for the disappointment.

From what I've seen of uncompressed PS4 videos and screenshots, it looks great at night and in rain and late afternoon. Water is awesome too.
Midday looks good but not fantastic.

General consensus is gameplay is great esp the online hacking. Some people are complaining about driving being off but bearable.

A lot of negativity about the downgrade is overblown IMO, esp on GAF. There are people on there nitpicking about silly things whilst most have come round to the fact it is a great game.

I have no worries about the game (PS4 anyway).

Don't get me wrong I think it looks good on PS4 but it's not as impressive as the 'PS4 gameplay' we saw in the two official videos from 2013 nevermind the initial E3 reveal trailer from 2012.

Ok the consoles might not have turned out as powerful as Ubisoft had hoped but why doesn't the PC version on Ultra look like the initial reveal ?...

Typical BS 'reveal trailers' from Ubisoft, they done the same with Red Steel, Assassins Creed, Ghost Recon, ZombiU and Farcry 3. Looking forward to seeing The Division downgrade at E3 lol.

Still undecided on if I should actually shell out release day prices for this or wait until the inevitable price drop so any reviews from those of you who have picked it up would be welcome!

Part of me wishes that if everyone cancelled there pre-order then it'd send a message to Ubisoft to get rid of their ridiculous pre-order culture and review embargos.
