Ubisoft's CEO Confirms That PC Is The Lead Platform For Watch Dogs

DSOGaming writes: "Well, we all saw that coming, right? Still, it’s good to have an official confirmation about the lead platform of Watch Dogs. In an interview with InsideGamer, Ubisoft’s CEO confirmed that the PC is the lead platform for Watch Dogs and all other platforms will be getting a port. Yeap, this is the exact opposite of what is currently happening, so this is at least good news for all PC gamers."

That's how next gen multiplatform software should be developed with PC as lead..The performance would be great on PS4 and 720 too since they are very similar to PC hardware wise..This way of development would solve the bad port problem that has hit all platforms this gen..

shutUpAndTakeMyMoney1790d ago (Edited 1790d ago )

I think they will! It make sense! If everything is like a pc and games are made on pc(programming, modeling, digital 2d art, music production, animations in maya or 3ds max) Wouldn't it be faster to just start there?? Then port?

Maybe this is why?

Hydrolex1790d ago (Edited 1790d ago )

this also helps PC gamers when it comes to some games!!

I remember GTA IV was shit on PC because it was a port from consoles, it wasn't optimized nicely

AngelicIceDiamond1790d ago

Right, and hopefully PS4 and 720 are easier to port from PC as well thanks to their PC like specs. (well confirmed for PS4 anyway)

While keeping all the visuals and performance the same. Across all next gen consoles.

TheGamerDood1790d ago (Edited 1790d ago )

So it's already starting to pay off for PC users now that both Sony & MS have gone with off-the-shelf PC parts and you'd think they'd be grateful but, nope. ಠ_ಠ

FantasyStar1790d ago

Really? All I've seen are PC gamers who are pleased by the fact the trend of next-gen is Power-PC x86.

papashango1790d ago (Edited 1790d ago )

Wait we need to be grateful to MS and Sony because THEY want to be closer to the platform that innovates and pushes boundaries....

go home you're drunk.

TheGamerDood1790d ago (Edited 1790d ago )

Then you need to visit other sites to see what I'm talking about; I know things look all nice and rosy here on N4G(lol)but that's not true everywhere else...checkout Totalhalibut being a **** on KZ YT channel. That's not trolling...naahhhh.


"innovates and pushes boundaries"

hahahah... thanks for that. And before anyone even starts, I game on both.

starchild1790d ago

I don't know what other people are saying on other sites, but I know that I am very happy with the architecture that Sony settled on for the PS4. Not only will it likely make for much better PS4 games, which I am extremely stoked for, but it will also do good things for the PC platform.

OpieWinston1788d ago

It's all us PC gamers have been waiting for.
Epic games not being hindered by console ports.
Ubisoft is awesome like that.

donman11790d ago

Excellent news. The Wii U version will be based of the PC. Read from the link below.

The anti PC gamers will come here to complain again.

MysticStrummer1790d ago

Maybe if PC gamers didn't troll console articles all the time, there would be fewer anti PC gamers.

OT - No surprise here. The 360, PS4 and 720 versions should be easy to convert from PC, but I wonder if the PS3 version will suffer.

DoomeDx1790d ago (Edited 1790d ago )

Or console players didnt stop trolling PC gamers all the time? ;)

donman11790d ago

Hmmm... I think you meant to say The Wii U, PS4 and Xbox720 versions should be easy to convert from the PC, but you wonder if the PS3/360 version will suffer in over all quality.

To answer your question... WiiU/PS4/720 will be the versions to get if you own any of those next gen consoles. I for one will own both the PS4 and WiiU. So for me its a matter of PS4 graphics/AI fidelity or Wii U immersive use of the Gamepad.

BlackTar1871790d ago

Doom you can;t really believe PS3 gamers troll PC kids. Come on its pretty rare someone stupid enough to say ps3 looks better then PC but PC gamers love to say the PC looks better then ps3 like it was ever a debate.

gamernova1790d ago

Dude, I saw console people on a linus tech tip video about the titan claiming that the ps4 smashed it. Seriously? It goes both ways really.

DoomeDx1790d ago

@ BlackTar.

Where did you get the idea that im talking about graphics?

Console people love to brag about exclusives.
PC people love to brag about graphics

BitbyDeath1790d ago

The PC crowd was trying to convince everyone that all games were made on PC first and had no idea what a console devkit was.

Wonder where they are now.

MysticStrummer1790d ago

@DoomeDx - Not being a PC gamer, I don't look at PC only articles so I have no idea if console gamers troll them, but I do see PC gamers in console only articles all the time. I don't give PC gamers a second thought until I see them in, for example, a Killzone article spewing stats and detailing the construction of their gaming rig.

@donman1 - I completely forgot about WiiU honestly. The WiiU version may or may not look very slightly better than PS3/360, but even a WiiU fan should admit PS4/720 versions should look noticeably better than all three. My comment about the PS3 suffering was more about the kind of minor differences that are usually present between 360 and PS3 multi plats.

I think both the anti PC and anti Console crowd are all equally pathetic and boring to read.

There's ABSOLUTELY NO PLAUSIBLE reason to enter an article to start, trolling/flaming/useless complaining for the sake of it.

Hydralysk1790d ago (Edited 1790d ago )

Of course there is, attention and/or the cheering on the self-esteem team.

They aren't good or objective reasons, but they aren't implausible.

aliengmr1790d ago

This is the "Sorry we called you all criminals" announcement.

Let's see if they can maintain that disposition for more than a year.

john21790d ago

I think this happens because PS4 and X720 are not out yet. Things could change when proper dev kits are out, so we'll have to wait and see

MasterD9191790d ago

I don't think gamers will care if they are playing Watch Dogs on next gen consoles...They will suffice ;)
