Watch Dogs PS4 Will Run At 1080p and 60 FPS, Listed In Sony’s Database, Says Sony Customer Service [Update]

Watch Dogs PS4 resolution and frame rate hasn’t been confirmed yet but according to Sony Customer Service, the game is listed as a 1080p and 60 fps title in their database.

Update (13th May): It appears that the official pre-order listing has removed the text mentioning 1080p at 60 frame per second, likely confirming that the listing was a mistake. You can still see it in the original story posted below.

This listing again matches the official pre-order description from Sony, which revealed the game as running at 1080p and 60 frames per second. Ubisoft have yet to comment on this story despite GameInformer’s recent article on the same topic. Check out the chat log between reddit user dizorkmage and Sony Customer Service employee.


This matches what Sony’s pre-order page listed for Watch Dogs on the PS4, which you can see in the image below, or check for yourself from this link.


With just a few weeks in between its official release, Ubisoft’s silence on this topic seems rather strange. Perhaps they want the users to find it out themselves. The Xbox One version’s resolution and frame rate has yet to be confirmed. In PS4’s case, it could be a simple ‘human error’ or perhaps it really runs at 60 fps(or unlocked frame rate)? In any case, we can find it out soon enough

Watch Dogs is set for a release on May 27th for the PC, PS3, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and at a later date for the Wii U.

Do you think Watch Dogs can run at 60 fps on the PS4? Let us know in the comments below.

    True watchdogs experiance? PFF haahhaha

    The pc version is 1080p 60 fps and it has the ps dlc, no serioulsy the playstation exlusive dlc is also on playstation.

    Pathetic really this game wont be 60 fps either.

  • ps4lol

    This still seems misleading.

  • da Boss

    Oh, so thats what the graphical downgrade was traded for. 1080p/60fps.That may not actually be the case, but nonetheless 1080p/60fps is really good.

  • andy

    Another PS4 game that continuously shows improvements in performance up to the release? What a shock.

    • dave

      Billion dollar question, what is it on Xbox1 maybe 900p/60fps?

      • ps4lol

        PS4 1080p 35-40 fps average, Xbox 900p 25-30 fps average.


    • dkn45

      sorry whats that? The game got downgraded. Hell the exlusive playstation dlc isnt even exlusive, it is also on pc.

  • BestJinjo

    Would have been more impressive if they pushed highest visuals at 30 fps. For slow paced games like 3rd person action-adventure, 60 fps is less important than high resolution textures and graphical effects since the character moves slow. They could have allowed for 60 fps for fast moving areas such as when driving a vehicle, etc.

    • my god

      yeah I agree with this one. but they have to subject the game to the most demanding scene that the player will experience to ensure it doesn’t dip below 30 fps. can’t maintain 30 fps you’re below that.

    Internet Explorer really??????

    • albatrosMyster

      Sad isn’t it!

      • rollingmol

        What you guys talking about Internet Explorer is the best browser…..
        to download another one… 🙂

        • bigevilworldwide

          I hate internet explorer but, I have to admit it’s better than Google Chrome, especially if you go into processes running while chrome is running and actually see the like 9 different processes it’s using. Firefox is still the best

          • albatrosMyster

            It does this to properly split processes between tabs, this makes chrome more stable and secure as each tab has their own memory space… Better on multi processor setups too… and it let you force quit specific problematic tabs from the task manager too.

            Firefox has better dev tools.

            pc gaming is making more money than consoles and tomb raider definitve edition is confimred by digital foundry to look better on pc.

            Cry some more idiot.

    • my god

      IE has gotten tons of flak in the past (deservingly), but let’s all try to stop living in the past and perform a “Windows Update” on our prejudices. The current version of IE actually pretty good. Impressive what 5 years of development can do, right?

      • 大王 アレクサンダー

        Well thanks for the advice, I’ll just stick with Chrome.
