When we found out that Watch Dogs would only be running at 792p on the Xbox One and 900p on the PlayStation 4, we weren't surprised - but these "next-gen consoles" are running the latest games that have had tens of millions of dollars pumped into them, at resolutions us PC gamers have been using for years.

Well, Alienware stepped up to the plate to smack talk the 'next-gen' consoles as it puts it, where it said on its Facebook page regarding the low resolution of Watch Dogs on the PS4 and Xbox One: "if these 'next-gen' consoles can't even get to 1080P from 3+ years ago... how do they expect to hold up for another seven years?". Alienware is right, something I've been saying for a number of years now. What do you think about this?
