"my vita needs it" -sherimae2413

-Bubbles for you for making me laugh... LoL

-Back on topic though, I love videos like this, I love hearing developers saying they are trying to use all of the systems capabilities... -should make for an awesome experience on PS4.

-it's not the same as making it from the ground up for PS4, but at least they are making a tweaked up version for the system that you can enjoy day-one.

I will see you @ PS4's Launch Mr. Watchdogs.. -Day-One- Buy 4 Me-

are those screens from PS3 or PS4 version? i'm confused! They always showed one version

Crazyglues2049d ago (Edited 2049d ago )

@ abzdine

Yes this is a very good Question, and I understand the confusion.... They have actually only ever shown two versions.. the PC and the PS4 version...

Above is the PS4 version they are showing you...
-here is the full demo - PS4 version -
-And here is the full demo PC version -
-The PC and PS4 versions will look almost exactly the same..

-What you have not seen is the PS3 and 360 version..

I read that as "Day 4 buy for me" and thought to myself, "Well, that's awfully specific and quite arbitrary."

I have a feeling it will be 60fps pc and 30fps ps4. Could be wrong though.

raytraceme2049d ago (Edited 2049d ago )

yea i have the feeling of the ps4 version being 30fps but still it's a third person game and it's single player so it's not as important as 60fps is for online fps multiplayer.

"Making use of all the system's capability" sounds good to me.

Hope more developers make use of each systems strength so their games can shine even more on said system.

That SHARE button is going to take things to the next level.

Some of the things said in the trailer make me a little concerned that this game is going to be always-connected. There's already rumors (I think they're still rumors) that AC4 will be online-only, but if Watch Dogs is too, then I'm a little worried about next-gen...

Root2049d ago (Edited 2049d ago )

I was just going to say that

Near the end they talk about multiplayer and single player being one of the same and how you won't need to drop into a lobby etc and how players will be surprized when coming across other players

So will that mean I HAVE to allow other people into my game because if thats true I might not buy it. I don't want people in my game after I've came back from a hard days work or long day at college. I just want to play a game peacefully.

Although if it has an option to set the game to private then this won't be a problem

I think Journey did this concept almost perfectly. Random strangers would come and go. But, for my first playthrough, I logged out of PSN so that I could play through the game alone. I wish they gave you an option in Journey to set your game to solo without having to log out of PSN though.

raztad2049d ago

I totally share your concern, no offline story would be dealbreaking for me. However I get the impression that game will be something in the lines of Demons Souls. In the video they clearly speak about single-player, to transition from single player to multiplayer w/o lobbies. To me that is a strong indication that, indeed, WD is gonna have a solo campaign. Hope it is a good one and no shitty disconected stuff to force you to go online for the complete experience.

despair2049d ago

It might be demon souls style where online you are always there in the MP world but offline it still works perfectly fine just without a few things. I highly doubt it will be online only for a Single player game.

Diablo 3 got away with it because its an established franchise with a rabid following but for a new IP it will get harsh critiques.

-Falaut-2049d ago

Very simple. Connect it all you want, all that matters is that 10 years from now, I can put Watchdogs into my old PS4 that is disconnected from the net, and play my old game that I paid $60 for.

despair2049d ago

agreed, that's all I ask for. MMOs are online only and we expect that when we buy them but SP games should be playable offline if I want to.
