Watch Dogs for PS4: 60fps and 1080p references removed from Sony website

Company removes frame rate and resolution details amid console tech war

Sony has removed text from its Watch Dogs page referring to 1080p resoluton and a 60 frames per second frame rate on PlayStation 4.

The text, pictured below, appeared to confirm how the game will perform despite Ubisoft's silence over how Watch Dogs will compare across different platforms.


"Hack everything as you make your way through Chicago's underground as you experience Watch Dogs in a way that only Sony can provide, at 60 Frames Per Second in 1080p," the site formerly read.

But now any reference to resolution and frame rate has been removed from Sony's website.

Interest in resolution and frame rate performance has endured since the launch of the PS4 and Xbox One in November. Since then, the PS4 has demonstrated an advantage over Microsoft's console, with titles including Battlefield 4 offering better performance on the PS4.

Watch Dogs cinematics animation lead Lars Bonde recently confirmed that Watch Dogs will run at 1080p on PS4, but did not offer details on resolution for the Xbox One edition.

Meanwhile, an Arab Gamer report claimed recently that Ubisoft had revealed specifications for the game during a Watch Dogs press conference: PS4 (1080p/30fps), Xbox One (960p/30fps), PC (up to 4K/framerate varies).

The worldwide Watch Dogs release date is May 27 on PC, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS4 and PS3. A Wii U release is expected to follow in autumn 2014.

Ubisoft released some high-res Watch Dogs screenshots earlier this month, showing in detail its virtual depiction of Chicago's towering skyscrapers and busy streets. A recent Watch Dogs gameplay video showed multiplayer modes and fantasy 'Digital Trip' side missions.
