So the PC version should be similar to the PS4/X1?

Who are we kidding, no it won't be.

it will look prettier on PC but it will be the same game.

Are they going to make their mind up or what ?!?!

You sir/miss, are dumb; Incredibly dumb.

Got to admit that was a pretty retarded comment by myself...apologies.

This is what happens when you write things at 4am (Saudi time).

I was mainly worried about the PC version not being as good as the PS4/X1 versions as it comes out at the same time as the PS3/360. I think it's a pretty fair point as there hasn't been any clarification on it...or if there has please let me know.

More concerned with him stating that next gen consoles would be launching before the game did. Spoiler release possibly? I thought this game was a lock for a launch day title...

Originally I heard it wasn't a launch title, then that it was. I say don't release until it's ready.

I kind of took that as he knew that next-gen would be available to develop on before the game shipped. I'm pretty sure other interviews have confirmed this is a launch title.

Didn't they say something really vague along the lines of suggesting that the current gen was going to be less dynamic than XB1, which was mistakenly taken by xbox fans to mean that it was superior to PS4 "because of the cloud"? So now, its the same game across all platforms eh?

PC, Wii U, Xbox One and PS4 version will look the same. Before anyone go off the deep in, look at the Watch Dogs game footage on the Jimmy Fallon show.

The comments these guys have been making are not filling me with confidence. How can it be the same game from current to next gen? If that is the case, you're not utilizing the tools afforded by the next gen consoles properly.

Probably the same thought process behind PS3 and XBox 360 versions of the same games of various titles being the same. It wouldn't exactly be a bright idea for a developer to favor one console completely while shafting the other, despite releasing for both.

Just like it wouldn't be a smart idea to punish those who aren't getting next gen for a while that choose to get this game for current gen. I do believe Ubisoft has stated that the city would feel more alive and robust on the next-gen consoles in comparison to current-gen, though.

He means story and side,mini missions or size of map not cut down from x360 or ps3. Just this
