Watch Dogs close up - next gen gaming? (video)

A look at the early footage from Ubisoft's Watch Dogs offering some analysis of how it's been presented. It's got next gen nuances, but as a multiformat release for Xbox 360 and PS3 as well as confirmed for PC and PS4 is it truly next gen gaming?

Ground Zeroes will be amazing. That's my most anticipated game.

I say no its not although the game looks stunning a true next gen game should be built from the ground up on a true next gen engine to show the true power. I'm not talking just graphics I'm talking AI, physics, realism, etc.

AI, Physics, realism....

Have you seen this game? Not to mention...the other 'next' gen games shown have only shown more graphics. The last of us has still shown the most impressive Ai. And that isn't next gen.

Unfortunately I think Next gen will be this gen with prettier graphics. Looking at Killzone it seems that way.

Oh also. This was built ground up for PC. And Crysis 3 is currently the most impressive title graphically.(PC version)

Shh! They're not supposed to know that PCs always have and always will trump consoles, and their collective "wonder" at "next gen" graphics is a little funny for PC gamers.

Console gamers should really stop complaining about graphics because console gamers talking big about specs always makes me laugh a little considering. Consoles are about simplicity. So console gamers should really stop comparing specs between consoles and just play their games.

Game on.

You can easily put Killzone:SF(alpha code) next to Crysis3(final code). Here's what PC gamers don't understand, developer can't make games for PC like they can consoles. Not every PC gamer has the same CPU, RAM, Graphics card, Cooling (water/air), and etc. So developers have to find a common low denominator to get the game up and running and move from there. You will not see a PC look better than next gen until their lowest common denominator is at the same level as consoles. Until that happens, all you're getting is better frame rates. I can guarantee you now every PC gamer is going to have a GFX titan in their rig. Sorry PC gamers, but you're going to have to hold this for at least 3-4 years.

Also using Watch Dogs is a really bad example. Ubisoft admitted that they haven't had time to properly port this to ps4(4gb DDR5). This demo was running off a PC with spec close to ps4(old version). Wait until you see this when it's using final PS4 spec and console optimization.

Yea, I guess only because its on next Gen consoles. I really don't see anything special, it actually looks rather stupid to me but that's just my humble opinion. I'll continue waiting for the next civ5 expansion.

I don't get all the hype for this game.
Looks good but not as good as the gaming editors have been making it out to be online.
Maybe because it's a multiplat?

I don't really care. It looks damn good and PS4 isn't that big of a leap over PS3 as PS3 was over PS2. That said... The water is sporting some serious tessellation and there's some great HDR lighting. Which is "next gen" enough for me.

I've already preordered my copy~
