Pretty shit, but the game was console exclusive in the first place.

What really bothers me is that enthusiasts who are willing to pay money for performance aren't getting the experience they paid for since consoles can't handle it. Do they seriously think console players will switch to PC due to graphics? They still need to pay the price, it isn't given.

I don't get it. Even as a console gamer I don't get.

I think everyone knows since 2007 when Crysis came out as a PC exclusive that consoles literally hold back videogames. Obviously this only applies to multiplat tittles but this is something that everyone should already know and simply deal with it, because it's not going to change.

That said, it's a very different thing to accept that multiplat tittles wont be as visually impressive as PC exclusives than to have a developer promise you a game that looks like X and then get one that looks like Y. That's what happened with say, Dark Souls 2 and the Witcher 3, when they were announced they looked amazing and then they didn't deliver and later backpedaled by making excuses and justifications on the spot for what they did.

In this particular case we are being told before release(I assume i know nothing of this game) that the PC version isn't going to look as good as it could so what is there to say about it? Nothing.

Also the division looks like a shitty game regardless of grafics so i don't give a single fuck.

It's actually one of the last pics that made me change side. After seeinf this one and a few others I thought "That's it, I'm done!"

A few months later I was building my first PC with a friend's help. I don't regret it.

Now I kinda hate console users, but I'm pretty sure I would have never ever done the transition if not for being on /v/. So I can't really blame normies for their ignorance and not wanting to take the step.

I think the people who think that the whole "consoles hold back gaming" is just a meme are retarded and i think that's never going to change because consoles are more popular with normies and casuals and that's 99% of the population on earth.

Picture related is what big companies think about it and since it's not going to change it's what you should think too.

The last visually impressive game Ubisoft made was AssCreed Unity and that was a catastrophe that didn't run well on any hardware, so really, they should stick to making games that look like PS2 games because otherwise they wont be playable by anyone on any system anywhere.

>>323043415
Do you really think it couldn't run well? There many other games with great graphics that run on toasters. The Serious Sam games are a great example
>>
>>323043658
For starters, remove mobile games, undeage, since they generally don't have the money to build a pc, and casuals, and you already lost a lot of people in the gaming community. The rest could be easoly shown the truth I'm sure, but again, you need people to show it to you. If not for /v/ that "opened my eyes" and the friend that helped me with the PC, I would have stayed with console.

Honestly, doing the "transition" alone is fucking hard.

But yeah, it's terrible to see one of your hobby slowly taken apart by people who like it as well, and don't even realise what they are doing.

You guys should at least give the beta a try, you can just pre-order the game on amazon and get a beta key within minutes, then cancel the order.

Makes me feel really fucking sad. Like, I knew they are going to do this, as they do it every time, but I hoped I get to goat over it when they go full damage control and denial on release. They took even that from me.
Ubisoft truly allows no fun, not in their games and now not at their expense.

>>323040485
>we already took out quite a lot of screenspace reflections

That seems like a pretty odd statement. My understanding is that screenspace reflections are a post processing effect that is applied to all objects based on their roughness (smooth vs. blurry reflections) and doesn't have a performance hit based on scene complexity. (so the amount of objects doesn't matter) Only increasing the rendering resolution or rays per pixel has a performance hit.
>>
>>323050017

It's not when the devs tell you that they downgraded like 2 days before release when they've baited everyone already, then they have an excuse because you bought it anyway and you have nothing to complain about.
>>
I don't give a shit about downgrades. Functional, playable and smooth is more important than being all flashy.

Graphicsfags are playing games for totally the wrong reason

As I thought. Screen space reflections have a minimal performance loss with scene complexity.

So why would he talk about removing some SSR as a way of improving performance?
>>
>>323040485
I don't think you can downgrade Division's gameplay anymore, unless they somehow scrapped everything and just made a badly programmed pong.

Graphic downgraded? Main feature of the pc was the engine and the graphics

I won't be buying it till someone find a fix like watchdogs

I already played the console version and the blurry textures are awful
>>
>>323040485

It was going to be downgraded anyways, even if it was PC exclusive, because no one would have been able to run what they showed at E3.
>>
>>323040485
i wont purchase it becasue of uplay alone

and i already guessed they'd pull this meme with downgrading.
>>
>>323051329

No but I've never had to quit playing morrowind to download a mod to change how it looks. Crap graphics don't bother me, I feel like the demand for prettier games stomped out a lot of devs.
>>
>>323051750
that's pretty much a lie, when the same shit with watch dogs happend it was removed purely because consoles couldn't run them.

>>323052089

Do you remember the graphics the first E3 demo had?
No way those could scale back to run on most PCs.

Game developers can't make games just for people with high end gaming PCs, or they won't make a cent.
>>
>>323052418
You can easily toggle those things off for the plebs

but no, they remove them to make sure nobody has a better looking game.

and that pretty much is everyone that owns a 780 / 290 or later graphic card.
>>
>>323052510

I don't think you understand scale-ability.

You need to axe some of the high end, to make the lower end go lower.

Remember that the vast majority of PC users use toasters. Gamer PC setups are a tiny minority.
>>
>>323052143
The problem is that W3 is still the best looking game.
>>
>>323053049
I don't agree on that end.


Witcher 3 looks OKAY. There really isn't enough detail to make it be "best looking", because it suffers from the same skyrim does, and that is a huge load of empty.
