Watch Dogs’ resolution and frame rate remains something of a mystery as Ubisoft declines to comment and Sony pulls back on boasts regarding the PS4 version’s performance.


Yesterday, A PlayStation website claimed that the PS4 was the only way to enjoy Watch Dogs at 1080p with a frame rate of 60FPS.

Sony has now quietly rolled back the relevant text from its website, as spotted and screengrabbed by GameInformer.

When we contacted an Ubisoft representative about Sony’s claims, we were politely advised that there was no comment to make at the time.

The boast was widely published, as it highlights an ongoing rivalry over the performance of cross-platform games on PS4 and Xbox One. Publishers and platform holders have, in general, been rather quiet on the subject.

An earlier rumour suggested the action game will run at 30FPS on all systems, although the Xbox One version will be lower res than the PS4.

Watch Dogs arrives on May 27 on PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. The Wii U version recently went into full production.
