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?” (Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, Industry, Next-Gen, Watch Dogs)

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.

It wont. Done.

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?
BattleTorn  +   360d ago
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.

if the next gen versions were more than 60 dollars then next gen games would be screwed, but for the same price, get the next gen version.
ziggurcat  +   360d ago
don't see how since i'll just wait for the PS4 version of the game. why get it on the previous gen system when it's going to be much better on the next gen?
CalvinKlein  +   360d ago
MOre likely GTA could hurt them.
MysticStrummer  +   360d ago
Once comparisons between current and next gen versions of Watch Dogs and AC4 start to surface, next gen consoles will only benefit.

How PS2 games will hurt PS3 & 360 games... oh wait! that's not what happened!

And the cycle continues...
FanOfRootBeer  +   359d ago
The gap between PS2/Xbox and PS3/360 is much larger than the one seen between PS3/360 and PS4/XOne. Because the differences between the two are less drastic, players are more likely to weigh their options more heavily when deciding on a platform.
kingPoS  +   359d ago
The majority of PS2 & Xbox titles were in 480p.
The majority of PS3 & 360 titles are in 720p.
The majority of PS4 & XB1 titles are presumably in 1080p.

It's like a ladder... right?
