Sony Computer Entertainment may have revealed some technical details in regards to the PS4 version of the upcoming "Watch Dogs." According to a report from Dual Shockers on May 10, the company updated its product page for the open-world action-adventure title. The listing made a bold claim by stating that the true experience can only be gotten by playing on Sony's next-generation system.

The product page went on to state that the PS4 edition will be running at 60 frames per second with support for the 1080p native resolution, which should make it the best looking console version. A spokesperson from Ubisoft previously confirmed that "Watch Dogs" is rendering at the full HD resolution. However, the publisher has remained quiet on the frame rate although an industry insider believes that it would end up at 30.

The listing also mentions the exclusive contents developed just for the Playstation platforms. According to IGN, the bonuses include a battery slot, white hat outfit as well as a group of missions that should add an additional hour to the gameplay. The open-world action-adventure title should take around 35 to 40 hours to finish just from playing the main campaign alone. It should take 100 hours to completely experience everything in the streets of Chicago.

Microsoft also provided a product page for the Xbox One version although no technical details were mentioned. Multiplatform games generally perform better on the PS4 from a visual standpoint so far. Microsoft recently hinted that the gap between two next-generation system should be getting closer in the future, however.

"Watch Dogs," which was actually revealed before the PS4 and Xbox One was announced, is coming out in several weeks on May 27. Along with the two next-generation systems, the software product is launching simultaneously on the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 while the delayed Wii U port is slated to arrive in the fall.
