Jonathan Morin has provided a response in regards to the recent graphical complaints for the PS4 and Xbox One versions of "Watch Dogs." According to a report from Dual Shockers on May 15, fan were disappointed that several media outlets stated that the open-world action-adventure video game did not look as good as advertised. Furthermore, Ubisoft announced that the native resolution support of 900p for the PS4 and 792p for the Xbox, which were lower than expected.

The creative director first advise fans to play "Watch Dogs" first before making any judgment towards the graphics, adding that there are a lot of differing opinions. He also suggests that PS4 players should use a proper setup and set the RGB option from the system's main menu to full range. The setting is utilize to correct the black color level so that a video game do not have to look too bright or too dark.

Jonathan Morin also talked about the frequent comparisons of "Watch Dog" to the recently-released, "inFamous: Second Son." He does not personally believe that the association is fair as Ubisoft's video game has so much happening on screen at once. Although he thinks that fans should be able to compare the two titles, he wants them to do so smartly.

The aforesaid "inFamous: Second Son" was released earlier this year for the PS4. The exclusive game also provided an open-world while being able to render at 1080p at the same time. You can find a screen featuring the latest "inFamous" game from the official Playstation Facebook site with the photo attached near the top of this article.

"Watch Dogs" apparently does not look as good as "inFamous: Second Son" although it is coming out more than two months later. The new intellectual property is set to be published at Ubisoft when it launches on May 27 for the PC, PS3, Xbox 360 and Xbox One as well as the aforesaid PS4. The company is also shifting focus towards the Wii U port that should be released later this year.
