An interesting article over at VG247 Reveals that a deal had been made between Microsoft and Ubisoft meaning that the PS4 version of The Division was downgraded so it didn’t look better than the XBox version. What a blooming cheek!
[Occasionally], the level of parity in the game needs to be identical, therefore you reduce quality to ensure that everything looks of equal quality,” my source explains. “On The Division, Xbox had a deal with Ubisoft, and part of that deal was to ensure that the PS4 version did not look better than it. The resolution, frame rates, and density of assets could have been higher on PS4, but this was vetoed to prevent issues with Microsoft.
I wonder it has anything to do with puddles? Anway myself and the rest of the gang have been playing through The Division on a Thursday night on Twitch and have all been remarking how good the game looks. Hopefully, there will be no stupid deals for The Division 2 so we can all enjoy the best game possible no matter what console you own.
