Ubisoft Dismisses Watch Dogs vs GTA V Battle

MCV: ''Developer Ubisoft Montreal is confident Watch Dogs can stand-out from Grand Theft Auto V.

The ambitious new IP from Ubisoft is an open-world action game that has similiarities to the GTA series, at least in appearance.

The game arrives two months after GTA V hits shelves, but speaking in an interview with MCV the game's creative director Jonathan Morin believes there's room for both games in the market.'' (Grand Theft Auto V, Jonathan Morin, PC, PS3, PS4, Ubisoft, Watch Dogs, Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

I'm excited about both titles...
... but considering the DLC-practices Ubisoft is known for these last few years, I won't be buying Watch Dogs day 1. I'll wait for a cheaper 'complete' release.

GTA5 seems like great value for money, so I'll most likely get that on day 1.

rightly so
judge each game by its own merits

watch dogs look sick but gta is gta
GTA5 is GTA4.5

GTA4 killed the franchise so Watch Dogs is obviously the better game. Maybe Rockstar will do better next-gen but the best game they had this gen was Red Dead Redemption and that wasn't even by Rockstar North.

"GTA4 is GTA 4.5"?

Please do fill us in as you have obviously played the full game to make such a judgement.

You haven't had a chance to play either of these games, and yet can say that one is "obviously" better than the other?
ape007  +   814d ago
i respect your opinion but gta 4 is one of the best games i played this generation, maybe you couldn't get into its heavier controls compared to older gtas but it's a damn classic if u get used to that

cant fuck with New Gen

That statement would have been true if we weren't talking about GTA. Too much hype surrounds that name.

Im sure Can not stand out .gta v will be best of this gen

Sure there are the GTA clones, but this clearly isn't. The games are worlds apart. It would be like comparing DOOM and Half Life. Two great FPS titles, but so different.

I'm honestly more excited for Watch Dogs. I'll be getting both but I'm stuck in next gen hype and GTA IV left a bitter taste in my mouth even though this looks worlds ahead of that

Buying both!

I only have a Wii U so I suspect I'll have a choice between Watch_Dogs and Watch_Dogs... IF GTA comes out for the Wii U (and it doesn't seem likely so far) then I'll happily have both.
