How Watch_Dogs and AC4 Will Hurt the PS4 and Xbox One

CCC says: “With so many changes in the works, the question needs to be asked: Will cross-gen development hurt the PS4 and Xbox One? How will the two hardware titans balance their next-gen schedules with their current-gen promises? Can they?”

Cross-gen games happened at the beginning of every generation, and it went fine all the time. In one or two years most of the games will be next-gen exclusives, so no worries.

True.

This time around , we may see some differences and improvements in next gen.

I remember at E3 2012, before any console reveal, people were saying that Watchdogs looked next gen. I think if developers choose to port down from high end PC their knowledge of current gen systems will mean that as little as possible is lost in translation.

Pondering too much on what a game could have been with sole focus on the highest performing platform is futile.

Personally i would rather have a next-Gen version of GTA5 -- and be done with it. However, that is one game that i am likely to buy twice. First when it is released on Sept 17, and then, whenever a next-Gen version becomes available.

I have already ordered both next-gen consoles for day one -- and anticipate that most of my future purchases will be Next-Gen games. Appears to me that one could get absorbed in Watch Dogs for weeks on end -- and that's just one game coming up. Battlefield 4 is also likely to be an impressive and immersive experience.

Does it really matter? People probably know that the best versions of Watch Dogs and AC4 (Not getting that) Are on next gen consoles. And when the cross gen titles stop coming out, won't that be an incentive for people to buy next gen consoles?

I'm very curious as to how much of a difference there will be. And to some people it does matter. I have a lot of friends who are very reluctant to be early adopters for either console.

And part of their reasoning is 'I can get /nextgen title/ on my current console'

I try to say that it's silly to play some of titles on 360/ps3 - such as Destiny, BF4, ect. (cause they'll be better on PS4/X1, how much however is unknown)
But to some people, the current gen version of games enough reason for them NOT to spend their money on next-gen. (myself definitely not included, heh)

It can also be said that is silly to spend hundreds of dollars for an unknown "better" upgrade, most likely none in gameplay.

Updated pixels with awesome wind effects won't placate everyone. Many gamers want to see other areas of improvements than graphics and player count from next gen before feeling the need to upgrade, imo.
