“Oh Ubisoft, will you never not give us material? Following a recent Watch Dogs PC controversy, Jimquisition looks at Ubi’s recent history of being terrible at computer games.”
Ubisoft released an official statement concerning the recent controversy surrounding the deactivation of “E3” settings for the PC version of Watch Dogs discovered by the PC modding community. The company admits they’ve deactivated the settings, but claims it was due to “possible impacts on visual fidelity, stability, performance and overall gameplay quality.”
Ubisoft has also addressed the conspiracy theory in which people claimed the deactivation was intended to downgrade visuals to keep the game from outperforming Xbox One and PS4 versions of the title.
Bayonetta 2 might sell better than most people thought, as the game is in the top 3 game sales for Amazon Japan right now. Super Smash Bros for 3DS is number one, while Minecraft is number 2, and Bayonetta 2 is number three. Watch Dogs on the PS4 is fittingly number 4. See the full charts here.

There was a lot of controversy surrounding the visual downgrades for Watch Dogs when compared to the original E3 reveal in 2012. A recent discovery made by The Worse at Guru3D probably won’t help settle down the problem, especially for PC owners of the title, since some “E3” settings still included in the PC game revealed Ubisoft has deactivated these settings, which allows the similar visuals as seen in the 2012 E3 reveal. When reactivated, some users have claimed the game looks drastically nicer, and actually enhances the performance on Ultra settings for the PC.
Mario Kart 8 is currently the number one game on Amazon Canada, which shows the title is continuing to sell well post launch. The PS4 version of Watch Dogs seems to be the prefered version, as it takes the top spot on the list. The Mario Kart 8 bundle and PS4 are continuing to perform well as both are in the top 10 for console sales. Hopefully Mario Kart 8 is the sign of good things to come for Nintendo and the Wii U.

When Ubisoft showed off Watch Dogs in 2012, most gamers were amazed with how the game looked. After the title was delayed and new footage was released, many gamers noticed the graphics took a significant hit. Later Ubisoft said in a interview with Angry Joe, that when the game was first revealed it was running off a monster PC. However, the PC version is now out, and even on Ultra settings, Watch Dogs doesn’t look anywhere near as good as the reveal back in 2012.
