This "could be" good news. It all depends on whether they use the PC version to make the Wii U version or if its ported from the 360.

I'm sure you saw what they did with NFS and the comparisons. If they wanted to make the best experience across the board....what do you think they will do?

Considering wiiu took 10mins to make NFS look identical to high end pc i'm sure wiiu will look identical to ps4 in Watchdogs.

It better be based off the PC version.

I hope its enhanced from the 360 as well. The game screams the Wii U gamepad, I just hope the developers use the second screen to their advantage.

woot woot, glad to see Wii U getting games, I was worried I wouldnt be able to find a PS4 and play this at launch

so much for third parties not supporting wii u, this is great news! another high quality title coming to the wii u, cannot wait to get it!!
PopRocks359  +   1010d ago
Excellent news. Now then, let's have some more third parties join in.

They are coming. This is why it's dumb for post-launch-console-bashing. There's prob LOTS of games coming for WiiU that we won't hear about for a bit. Takes time.

Ubisoft I will now buy RL thank you for your support.
Nevers0ft  +   1010d ago
Let's not be too hasty now :)

I'll buy Watch Dogs but Rayman is a 2nd hand purchase at best for me after the stupid delay.

The best version with gamepad
Link079  +   1010d ago
Can't wait to see it running on both screens at the same time wow day 1 ubisoft Wii love U get it.
stragomccloud  +   1010d ago

When do you have time to play so many games?
MH3U is a black hole for time, just ducks it up...
stragomccloud  +   1010d ago
I never have the time. :(
It just keeps piling up and I rarely beat games.
However... Every now and then I'll get a good run in, and I might end up beating 3 games in one week(my record). Not fair though because I generally whittle down a lot of games little by little. Though sometimes it takes a while...

And yeah... I foresee Monster Hunter becoming another black hole for me as it was with the Wii version.

It must be like Christmas at your house every month.
stragomccloud  +   1010d ago
I try to preorder games a long ways ahead of time, then I pay them off little by little to offset the high cost.

I've ended up with a considerable collection spanning from NES-Wii U. It's not an exclusively Nintendo collection, Nintendo consoles just happen to be the oldest and newest consoles I have.
Link079  +   1010d ago
Add LegoCity/X/Windwaker to that list and ur right.
stragomccloud  +   1010d ago
Oh woops. I forgot to add those to the list. Except I don't think I can pre order X yet....

Man, lots of great games coming out~

I'm also really hoping for a Twilight Princess/Skyward Sword HD rerelease. Any excuse to play them again. Well... anything Zelda... As you can probably tell from my avatar. Though I might consider myself a PC gamer first... Zelda has been and always will be my favorite franchise of all time.

how about Luigi's mansion 2 and Wii U Lego City? :)
ZeekQuattro  +   1010d ago
This is a sad day for trolls everywhere. This game was used in daily talking points as to why the Wii U sucks and will not have any games. lmao

I like that the Nintendo Fans made a Ruckus over the Rayman delay-
-That showed then that people were interested in the game on the WiiU side.

But Ubisoft has always been pretty good at supporting Nintendo, I have respect for them in that regard.

Even if "Watch Dog" is just a Port from 360/PS3 (and not PC)- even if they for some reason manage to make the game look slightly worse than the 360/PS3 verion (not likely) -

The WiiU version is the one to have because of the 2nd Screen-
Think how Clean your screen and HUD will be when playing with the WiiU.

There won't be all that clutter to distract from the immersible world around you...
MegaLagann  +   1010d ago
Very good news, hopefully it's a port of the PC version, kind of like NFSMW. When I first saw this game I thought it would be perfect for the Wii U, using the gamepad to hack into the environment.
CouldHaveYelledUiiW  +   1010d ago
It would be great if having the WiiPad allowed you to keep track on Multiple objectives.

Streaming constant information on a location or the status of an objective at a glance.

Seen the playstation metting and if Microsoft doesn't top it I'm getting a Wii U(if I ever get a console again). Xenoblade 2 looks more interesting than everything shown yesterday.
Venox2008  +   1009d ago
It may be just me, but I think nextBox will have very similar content to PS4.. multiplats - definately.. so what for Microsoft were famous else, if not multiplats and timed exclusives? :D oh yes, and Gears, Forza and halo.. :) I would recommend you PS4 & Wii U combo.. therefore you'll can play older Wii games and there are very good games on Wii too..

nice, keep the games coming for wiiu
