Ubisoft: Watch Dogs "The Same Game" On Current- And Next-Gen

Publisher says number of characters on-screen cut down for PS3, Xbox 360 versions, though game is fundamentally the same across generations. (PC, PS3, PS4, Watch Dogs, Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

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.

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...
MysticStrummer  +   597d ago
Originally I heard it wasn't a launch title, then that it was. I say don't release until it's ready.
Becuzisaid  +   597d ago
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?
PigPen  +   597d ago
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

I don't understand how developers can say "next gen hardware gives us the flexibility to do more and enhance gameplay" and then say that the next gen version is the same as the current gen. If it can be done on current gen hardware, then why the need for next gen?
exfatal  +   597d ago
for the money of course. But im thinking they meant ps4 and xbone will probably have greater draw distance and look slightly prettier
PersonMan  +   595d ago
"Look prettier" only goes so far. Once I see how good a game looks, it blows my mind at first, and then it just goes to the back of my mind and I focus on the gameplay. The pretty graphics wear off over time. Besides, I'm not one of those people who stare at a wall and go "oooohh look at those textures!". I just play the game and enjoy the gameplay and story.
exfatal  +   595d ago
Lol you and me both kid ;) Graphics are like first impressions yea sure they can be good. but gonna need more then your good looks to please me
Tatsuya  +   597d ago
Ok, good for the people who'd stick with the current gen. I'm going for the full experience with my PS4. Can't wait to hack people and disturb their missions. Watch Dogs is a must have for the PS4!
ZBlacktt  +   597d ago
This has been reported a few times before. Only this news is a lot less direct, lol. They don't want to come out and say, well duh of course current is going to be less this and that. We can expect the next Gen to be up to speed. They do say again in this report some of the difference. Which is a great deal when you think about it. I mean you are in a city environment. Real world is full of people. So the next Gen games are going to be way more real life. With affects, smarter AI, wind debris, etc. It's not a put down to current Gen. But a expected step up to next Gen.

if done right I think Wii U version can have the best gameplay out of all
cunnilumpkin  +   597d ago
totally agreed

if any company will take the time to fully utilize the wii u's capability outside of Nintendo its ubisoft!

the game could be freaking awesome with the wii u pad, I was merely speaking about graphics, but I'm with you, the wii u version could be really, really cool
romancer  +   596d ago
sounds like a developer's bafflegab -

similar is not "the same as" --

Is Ubisoft stating that its developers are ignoring the next-gen potential of the XBox One and PS4 -- except for adding a few more characters in the crowd scenes?

Will pricing for all versions be "the same"?
