PS4: Ubisoft planning similar launch day support to Wii U, Vita

Ubisoft is planning multiple games for the PS4's launch.

When asked whether Ubisoft will offer it a similar level of support to the Wii U and Vita console launches - which saw six and five games respectively in Europe - CEO Yves Guillemot told Digital Spy: "That's what we're trying to do.

"It's part of our DNA to be early, because we think it's the best way to put the company in the new features that are offered.

"With the Wii U, for example, the fact that we went touch on a new, double screen, all of those things you're able to do afterwards in all the creations you do.

"Being early on all the machines is making the company learn fast, and learn early."

Meanwhile, Guillemot said that it plans to release "some" other games like Watch Dogs across two generations like the PS3 and PS4, while others will remain be console-specific.

"For some of them, but not all [will be cross-generation]," he said.

"There will be specific games for certain types of machines taking advantage of specific features. As I said, it will be the case for some of the games." (PS4, Ubisoft)

I liked them after Anno 2070 but i hate that awful that forced Uplay window that opens up before I get to play my games on PC. They're trying too hard to be Steam, but what they just end up doing is adding some unoptimized software on my laptop. It loads extremely slow on an i7 CPU.

Remember how everyone said Assassin's Creed, Call of Duty, etc didn't count for the Wii U launch? Same thing should apply here. Watch Dogs and Grand Theft Auto V don't count, remember? rofl

Dude what the hell you talking about?

Anyhow, seeing how Rayman Legends lost exclusivity to the Wii U maybe we'll see ZombieU ported over? Under a different title that is. ;)
