Looks good on PC though. For a Ubisoft title no less.

PlayStation 4

It's Ubisoft, they never deliver what they originally show you. The leaked PS4 screens don't look any better then AC4 and that was a last gen port. Unity is next gen only and that is sad if that is the best they can do, we all know that both console are capable of more. The little we've sign of the next gen GTA V looks better then the leaked Unity screens imo.

From those screens black flag looks better. Judging by screens isn't always best though.


Maybe having co-op made then cut back on. Graphics

Ah, that would explain it. Crowds aren't that big in black flag.

Just read about a possible fix for the rest mode problem over at Neogaf. Many users are reporting that if you set the usb power to always be off that it fixes the problem. Going to test it out tonight.

Maybe that is why I don't have a problem. Although the first few days I had it set to turn off power to the USB ports after three hours. And that also worked fine for me.

I spoke wrong, over on gaf they are saying to set it to always on. I did that first and still got the flashing orange light. So far so good with it set to off though.

I have had the standby problem periodically since launch. I know it's selfish, but I'm glad firmware 2.0 made it more widespread -- now Sony will have to fix it.

That's always the 'double edge sword' with non-exclusive titles. I pretty much solely end up playing them on my 4K PC rig over the PS4. I was just thinking yesterday god it's been a slow launch year for the thing, worse than the PS3. Wish the Order was out already!

The PS3's launch window was even worse, trust me. However... the PS3 did get Motorstorm pretty early in 2007, and that game was amaze-balls.

If only Evolution had made another Motorstrom

What stunk for me is that I don't like racing games at all, regardless of how good they look or controlled. Honestly, I've felt that the PS4 launch window games were better than the PS3 launch window games. This is all based on personal taste, so don't take that as fact. Granted, the games could still be way better.

There are some games I'm looking forward to. Never played a Dragon Age game, so I'm thinking about going giving it a go. Not interested in Call of Duty, but will be getting Far Cry 4 so long as Ubisoft doesn't screw it up. AC Unity will go by the way side unless they fix the way it looks on consoles. Yuck.

I was there too man, just as I was for both the PS1 and PS2... Then again at that time it has to be said it's hardware and exclusive titles did stand out, which prob made up for the slow releases. The killer PS3 title for me was Resistance. I didn't enjoy a single PS4 launch title really, Killzone I played through a few levels then put it down.

I've recently seen some videos of the game, that have me reconsidering my take on AC Unity. At first, when I was seeing the various screenshots, I was like... "Damn, that is really blurry, and not really looking very next-gen".

But when you actually see the game in motion, and actually see how many NPC's are walking around in the environment... I just think the atmosphere of the game is going to be off the charts. I'll probably really get lost in that world, with all those people walking around and everything. Of course, I might get really bored of it after about 5 hours. But yeah, I can see why the graphics aren't so great when they have that many people walking around, and a huge city maped out like that to explore.

Is "googles page under security" google.com/settings/security? I can't find anything there listing PSN. There's a link there to view permissions for apps & websites, and it also doesn't show PSN anywhere.

Still continuing to get a message "This feature is temporarily unavailable" when I sign in inside the YouTube app, although the PS4's settings (outside the YouTube app) does have YouTube listed in PSN>Link with other services. Meanwhile, the PS3 YouTube app continues to work perfectly well with me signed in.

It was a pita to find but they have a page that shows which devices can connect to your Google account. Not real sure how I actually found it. A search for Google security pulls up a lot of unrelated crap.

I preordered Far Cry 4 , I really enjoy liberating outpost in stealth mode. Bought several call of duty games but haven't played them in a long while. Have played last of us?

Compared to the reactions GAF had I thought AC would look awful but those aren't bad. Still won't play it though. AC is just not my thing. Even with pirates it was still the old follow too many people routine.

+1, even though the pics are fairly small.

Still, another non-exclusive title, so just like the previous AC's I'll be playing it on 4K PC.

I kind wonder when the next gen naysayers will ever be happy. Unfortunately the PS3 to PS4 difference will never be as drastic as the PS2 to PS3 jump. So I agree the screenshots above aren't jaw dropping, but it's still moving in the right direction in terms of details and improvements.

Warning: I make a lot of mistakes but occasionally I learn from them!

Depends on game of course but I think this was a pretty big leap. The average game has a helluva lot more going on these days. Computer screens weren't readable, just blurred text but now you can usually read them. More people, more background stuff, just more in general.

Remember GAF is PC heavy and mostly children that act really immature when it comes to stuff like this. PC gamers absolutely despise Ubisoft right now, so they're inclined to hate everything about their games. Same thing with COD...ghosts looks pretty awesome on a high end PC but because its an iffy PC port everyone acts like it looks like quake 2.

I agree, it's not my kind of game either. Black Flag was my first AC game and while I loved the environments and the movement of the character climbing/running over and around things, I absolutely hated times when you had to do stealth missions where you would be punished for being noticed etc. I never was a big Splinter Cell guy either, stealth is just not my cup of tea and I just don't have the patience for it. On the other hand if I have the option in a FPS to go in guns blazing or stealth mode, I usually do the latter but it feels like I have more freedom either way so it's not a huge deal and doesn't feel forced

I'm usually more Rambo in games than a ninja but the stealth in Ground Zeroes really took hold for some reason. So while stealth is way out of my comfort zone some games really hit it right for me. Splinter Cell was another no go though.

Stupid update...
I couldn't turn my PS4 back on after putting it in standby. I had to unplug it.
Starting from scratch on Tomb Raider, I wonder what else is hooped.



Edit:False alarm, a quick restart and all is good.

Saw a video of Assassin's Creed in motion. Just climbing Notre Dame, looking at the massive crowds, syncing the point and doing a flyaround. It looked amazing. There was nothing like this in the last gen.
