'Watch Dogs' Wii U: Tablet use undecided, offers same social features

Watch Dogs on Wii U will be feature comparable with other versions, Ubisoft Montreal has said.

Senior producer Dominic Guay said all the game's "core" social features - such as allowing users to access other players' worlds through smartphones - will be possible on the Nintendo platform.

"So the connectivity between players with mobile devices, the way you can control the city, the immersion, all those are core and on any platforms we're going to ship on we're going to make sure we nail those pillars down," he told Digital Spy.

While Wii U tablet features have been to be decided, Guay said that the game's themes of hacking with mobile devices is a "natural" fit for the controller.

"We're still investigating how we'll use the tablet on the Wii U, but with the things I mentioned before, for us it's not going to be a weird stretch," he said.

"It's natural. What's really cool with Watch Dogs, when we start thinking of those devices, it's not a weird abstraction, it's not like I'm a space alien and now I'm using a tablet. Why am I doing that?

"Aiden Pearce is using a device to control the city, so it's quite easy to imagine what we could do with that." (Watch Dogs, Wii U)

They should just skip the wii u tablet and put that support to the overall wii u development.

They don't nerf the Wii U version.

"We're still investigating how we'll use the tablet on the Wii U"

Well, if they are still thinking how to use the main feature of the Wii U this far into development, probably safe to say it won't be all that phenomenal. Anything they use it for at this point will seem like gimmicks and not true thought and purpose.
Yeah even I can see how much sense it makes to use the tablet with this game. Hacking on wiiu might actually be more interesting than other platforms.

They will make the WiiU version good i trust ubisoft and i'll pre-order soon as it's available in the UK in GAME or AMAZON UK ect.

So Watchdogs is already running on WiiU so no dev problems there,the wiiu should get all the same extra's as ps4.

based on specs I see it like this:

1) PC and PS4 highest resolutions full 1080p and content, better fidelity of graphics due to extra ram!
2) Wii u 720p up scaled by wii u to 1080p with game pad functions and full content with visuals like criterion have given on need for speed
3) Xbox 360 and ps3 below 720p and full content! this is the case with COD black ops 2, less ram then wii u and lower quality GPU!

Was good to read its running already on Wii u :)

WiiU will have exact same resolution as ps4,pc will have true 1080p/60fps,in other words i think ps4/Wiiu will have Native 720p/60fps.

Simple as that.

WiiU NFS MOST WANTED U is basically equivalent to high/ultra on pc.

in response! i can't see it being 60fps or required as I think only fast moving games need 60FPS like racers? I think 30FPS will still be the norm! I guess we have to wait and see! I am just happy to have this game and one to look forward too!

I am sure it won't be a let down! i mean are was very happy with zombiu!

Sadly NFS Most Wanted is by no means the definition of one of the greatest looking games around.

Don't get me wrong the Wii U version is clearly better looking than the others on consoles but still it's not a game that comes to mind when I think of graphical achievements.

Sure it is graphically nice but seeing graphics like that were very apparent in PC some years ago, so no there is no way NFS on Wii U is even comparable to higher end PC's or the games that are graphically truly intense, now is it comparable to NFS on PC sure but again you are comparing the same game.

Of course it's going to be close to or comparable when it's the same game. Like I said I am not really discrediting NFS Most wanted but I really don't find it to be that amazing graphically even on the Wii U it isn't anything I haven't already seen before is all I am saying..

No am I not trying to brag about PC either just saying.

You're truly delusional lmao you also said......

WiiU will have exact same resolution as ps4,pc will have true 1080p/60fps,in other words i think ps4/Wiiu will have Native 720p/60fps.

GT6 was also 60fp 1080p you cant compare a racer to a open world game,theres way more going on its alot more complex.Wii U specs will NOT be able to run Watch dogs in 60fps trust me.Either get the PC or PS4 version if you want that type of performance.

just want to know when this is out! Christmas??? if so I will ask the wife to buy it for me on my lovely wii u :)

they could take the wheel menu on screen and put it on the gamepad, that would be one less thing cluttering the screen. a map screen of course.
you could have a more in depth database on people, for example when you hover the cursor over someone it only gives you certain info on them you could have a more fleshed out version on the gamepad.
all your hacking can be done on the gamepad, there's a few things they could do.

lol at Link trying to hype up wiiu and downplay ps4. Moron everyone already knows ps4 is a good amount more powerful then wiiu in every aspect. Ps4 version will without a doubt have the better offering between the wiiu and ps4 probably with higher res. Dream your little dreams lol
