I'm guessing this means the PS4 aswell
JoGam  +   1016d ago
Question is if not the PS4, which one will you buy? PS3 or PS4? I may still buy the PS4 version just because its next gen.

What about Last of Us and Beyond. And even if it wasn't for those I'm keeping my PS3 strictly for the Uncharted series. Uncharted 2 and 3 are some of the best gaming playthroughs I've ever had, and I wish to replay them on an yearly basis at least once.
Excellent story combined with cinematic graphics and gameplay.

Hydrolex... i gotta laugh when people say they want to get rid of their
250-600 dollar investment, as if games aren't coming anymore because the next gen is coming...

You'd sell your ps3 just to play cross gen ports? You're behaving as if The Last of Us, Beyond:2S, Puppeteer, Gran Turismo 6 and whatever Other Exclusive they announce at E3. The PS4 is coming but the PS3 will continue to get original content, long after the PS4 has launched, I don't think Sony will stop producing PS3 exclusives for another 2 year's. So hang on to that ps3... There's no way to transfer over those games to PS4, no BC.
slapedurmomsace  +   1016d ago
@hyrdro...why man?? To this day the PS3 is still one of the best blu ray players, just keep it as an extra, even if it's just for that.

And here I am planning on buying a super slim when the ps4 is released cause I don't like the way my reg slim is starting to sound.
jimbobwahey  +   1016d ago
Since Sony is being sketchy about the PS4 playing PS3 games (the confusion over whether Gaikai will or will not stream them) I think that they'll probably rerelease their big PS3 exclusives on the PS4 at some point.

Sony realized that the tactic worked well with HD remasters of PS2 games on the PS3, so they'll probably do the same thing again. I can see an Uncharted trilogy and God of War 3/IV pack being released for the PS4 at some point. I've no doubts that they'll port over Beyond: Two Souls and The Last of Us as well.

Obviously it's a gamble assuming this since Sony hasn't commented, but I can see why somebody would be selling their PS3 right now to put the cash down on a PS4 preorder, before the value of the PS3 drops in a few months.

Sony is really stepping their game up and are taking the exclusive DLC part serious

Lets see E3 is gonna be a lot of fun. If rumors flying around are true than a lot of big publishers are picking sides on who they will make exclusive content for or even games

I doubt a 3rd party publisher would agree to do exclusive game bit I guess enough money can make it happen
DonFreezer  +   1016d ago
Sony is taking their dlc part serious but when Microsoft does it you bush them because they have no exclusives and they steal dlc content from other consoles right?
showtimefolks  +   1016d ago

i don't bash anyone, i give my opinion. You can see my comment history

early on i thought it was stupid but MS proved that exclusive DLC does matter and i am glad sony learn from that experience.

both systems will be about the same specs wise so in a way both console makers need exclusive content to gain the attention of gamers

GTA dlc was stupid because MS through it would sell into millions upon millions and it didn't but COD and Bethesda DLC deals are actually very smart

in a perfect world all dlc would come to every console at the same time but this is a business and everyone is looking for some sort of advantage

MS did soe very smart things looking into future

original xbox requires broadband no option for dial up

xblive service a killer service set up early for long term

locking DLC

but they also made some stupid ones too, like not every xbox360 with harddrive or not built in wifi into earlier models but they made the changes so i guess everything is ok as long as they learned from their mistakes and improve
IAmLee  +   1016d ago
At the end of a trailer it says, 'to be released on current gen consoles as well,' or something along them lines, so it's looking like a PS4/720 title too :D

On a side note, I'm refraining from watching this, as I want everything to be new to me when I'm playing it for the 1st time. :')
Syntax-Error  +   1015d ago
Why would anyone buy a $500 system to play a $60 game that will be released on current gen w/ no significant improvements? It's not like having to choose a title being made for NES and Super Nintendo.
hkgamer  +   1015d ago
They not buying a ps4 specifically for this game... I would laugh at anyone who buys a next gen console then only purchases multiplatform/generation games.

I'm planning to buy ps4 and purchase a few exclusives. If I have any spare cash, I provably will get this game aswell

AngelicIceDiamond  +   1016d ago
The exact same thing fanboys cried about all this gen will rejoice over it now that its PlayStation's doing it.

Let the hypocrisy begin.

@Minato Ubisoft didn't give it to them for free, Sony decided pay for it again. How can MS use that so called "50million" to bring in new games when they're all being made for 720 at this whole time?

No we said it wasnt something a company should waste 50 million on when that money could be used to make 2 or 3 games instead.
Software_Lover  +   1016d ago
Microsoft made it possible for the game to be released. They were severely over budget and no one else would flip the bill.

So you would rather the game not be released.
fabod86  +   1016d ago
I think that you are mistaking it with LA Noire...
Minato-Namikaze  +   1016d ago
Where is this proof that sony paid for this from Ubisoft? We dont know what was given in exchange.

@software lover
You're telling me GTA 4 was in danger of not being released? Or is there another game that i am missing that MS paid 50 mil for DLC content (not including the 75 million they paid to stop GTA4 from being PS exclusive).
Pinkdolphin  +   1016d ago
Ahahahaha!!!!! Oh yea lets assume ubisoft was feeling kind and generous and did it for free because they love sony. The lengths fanboys go sometimes.... Please just stop.
MysticStrummer  +   1016d ago
That's not what "fanboys" have complained about and you should know that, as much as you're on here ( commenting on PS3 articles ). MS decided to spend money on acquiring timed exclusive content rather than on real exclusives. You may like that but many people don't, including 360 fans.
DK286K   1016d ago | Spam
MysticStrummer  +   1016d ago
@DK286K - I guess that depends on your idea of what a healthy balance is.

And no, I have nothing but circumstantial evidence and the testimony of all my friends that used to have a 360 to tell me that MS spent more on marketing and timed DLC than on exclusives.

You're still not understanding what I meant though. As long as Sony does it AND brings a large number of new IPs, yes it is ok. If they go the MS route, no it won't be ok. You're acting like only Sony fans think MS did that, which isn't true.

EDIT - The dumbest thing about AngelicIceDiamond's comment is that Sony was already doing it to some extent this generation. This isn't new, but MS did more of it for sure.

Hicken  +   1016d ago
Actually, people complained because they spent money on this for multiple titles while the exclusive GAMES dried up.

Geez, if make things up to try and prove your point, your whole argument falls flat. The $50 million, for example, was for GTA; that was early enough in this gen that it COULD have been used on another game, as I doubt they were making "all" the games for 720.

And really, what kind of weak excuse is that? Are you Xbox guys SERIOUSLY buying into that? "They're not making any games for 360 cuz they're making games for 720."

So why can Sony do both? I heard Microsoft has more studios than Sony, too. Someone in a recent article even went as far as to count the different teams of MS developers, while not counting the multiple teams at ND, GG, and others.

Even so, Sony's supporting THREE CONSOLES with lots of games; why can't Microsoft seem to maintain ONE?

aquamala  +   1016d ago
console makers want people to move on to the next generation

why would third party developers care? it's the same to them if you buy the $60 PS3 version or the $60 PS4 version
Salooh  +   1016d ago
Because it's easier to develop for and will evolve gaming. I know that they are seeking money but before this bullshit, new consoles bring new opportunity to new ips to be famous because of the lack of games. Therefore, they try to bring the best game they ever could but now it's a sales race only. This is a new thing just like the dlc's , pass codes and DRM..etc

Watch dog is a day one on ps4 but I'm just saying why some people are disappointed and see different thing happening. Developers blamed the companies for limiting them which is true but now when they got what they want they go the easy way instead of blow us away with next generation..

That's what i'm worry about more limitations will come. Locking more things. Bring new ways to profit without true value to customers. What a shame..

DigitalRaptor  +   1016d ago
I'll be getting the PS4 version regardless. I highly doubt it won't be coming to the console. That's Sony shooting themselves in the foot at a console launch, if they don't bring it to PS4.

Timed exclusivity sucks and is disrespectful, but I'm not gonna refuse if it's available.

I don't like this practice on either side of the fence. All gamers should get to play the complete game regardless of their platform of choice. I am predominately a PS gamer but still feel people who game on the Xbox should get everything too.

They will though it will be timed exclusive s o i dont see the problem really.

Yea just like all the other Ubisoft content that has been exclusive to PS3 versions.Has already came out on other systems...oh wait no it hasn't.

Difference between Sony&M$.Sony pays for it to stay on PS unlike M$ which is timed.

Neko_Mega  +   1016d ago
First AC4 and now Watch Dogs? Wow, talk about getting back at Microsoft for doing it this last gen (or this gen if you want to say it like that).

No matter what, I already had plans for getting this on PS4. Even if that added stuff isn't on the PS4 copy, I don't care. I want the game.
BLow  +   1016d ago
So is this a release date for the PS4 since this is a launch title. I mean if the PS4 releases before this then this would not be a launch title but rather a launch window title. Hmmm...maybe I'm totally wrong. Who knows?

Edit- Well I just scrolled down the main page and there is a article pointing out what I just said so nevermind. I forgot for a sec this was N4g and every angle of news is covered.

I think Sony likes to challenge itself. It's like they're setting up PS4 to compete with its own predecessor. If for some reason a gamer couldn't afford a PS4 and Watch Dogs, then at least they may still be able to get it for their PS3 with an incentive. The decisions this holiday should be explosive. :-)

looks like we know what console we all should be getting and thats the playstation console so we can keep getting the extraa gameplay. dont know why someone would get a x36o or wii u version when gaming is about the games you get the game with the most content and awesomness. you dont play consoles you play games and the best one here is the playstation one.

is this DLC or core content?

because if it's core content, how is this game coming out on xbox, considering MS's draconian release policies (i.e. not releasing any game on X360 that has more content on the other console versions)?

ufo8mycat  +   1016d ago
Depending on the quality of the DLC, I may pick up the PS3 version of this. Would be a shame in a way, because when you buy anew gaming console, you want to buy games for that because its new.

Would of thought they would make this exclusive with the PS4 version instead, but if this is exclsuive to PS3 only and it is QUALITY DLC, the PS3 version may be the best version to get after all. The only difference between the PS3 and PS4 version is that PS4 will have better GFX thats about it. Gameplay is still the game Same game. So if PS3 gets exclusive quality DLC, may have to look at that one instead.

Cannot wait for this game.

Well then you should really buy a PS4 instead of a 720 if you really want access to the exclusive content in watchdogs.

But if there's one thing we can agree on is that the 720 and the PS4 versions will be much better than the versions on last gen systems (Xbox360, PS3 and Wii U)

Yip and Ubisoft wonder why piracy is rife. Once they get their head out of their arses and start treating everyone as just a gamer and not a PS\XBOX\PC gamer they will earn some respect.
