'Watch Dogs' on PS4 will define next-gen gaming in its mature phase, says Sony

Watch Dogs has been touted as a game that will define what next-generation gaming is, and Sony echoed that sentiment further when they talked about how this game will end up representing what's to come on the PS4.

PlayStation UK Managing Director Fergal Gara recently talked about two games that are expected to define next-generation gaming and how Sony made sure to partner up with both of them. (PC, PS3, PS4, Watch Dogs, Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

I don't get companies bigging up multiplat games like it's exclusive
Bathyj  +   192d ago
I prefer them talking about a title they're genuinely excited about rather than going on about mediocre titles just because they're exclusive.

@BALLBAGS

Read the article, and you'll see that the author took liberties with what the Sony rep said. (And also did a poor job of quoting in text.) Don't get bent out with Sony for something the press twisted into a story.
Chrischi1988  +   192d ago
But then, PS4 will offer the nicest graphics of Watchdogs, but the best gameplay will be on Wii U.

Thought Wii U is no next gen console, but get THE GAME, that Sony calls the true NEXT GEN GAME.

@Chrischi1988, so? BF4 came out on the PS3 and 360. Does that mean it's the same experience as on the PS4 and One? Yeah, I know, bad example...they're all just looking at different error screens. But you know what I mean.

Nicest graphics for Watch Dogs on the PS4? Isn't this game coming out on PC as well??? Lol.
zag  +   192d ago
Yes comes out on pc but this game is in its 2nd or 3rd delay for not being ready, so im just waiting to pick it up day 1 and see what happens thereafter.

I get tge impression this game will be a great idea but badly executed type game.

Have to wait till feb to see anything.

Try harder troll. Anyway I love X1's Sub-HD resolution for AC4, BF4 and COD
Lukas_Japonicus  +   192d ago | Well said
I remember that article and its deceptive headline. What it was actually saying if you take the time to read it carefully is that compared to last gen, Watchdogs on the X1 will be superior, the title makes it seem like it was saying compared to PS4 too....when i wasn't. Anything the X1 can do in-game, the PS4 can match with ease. I wonder if Ubi will aim for parity or use the PS4 power advantage like most other multiplats have.

Funny that you got an article from 177 days ago to try and prove a point, and you're still wrong.

MestreRothN4G  +   192d ago
Not even maybe.

I'll probably get it on PS4, but no doubt it is more like "will define cross-gen titles".

True next gen games can't fit in 256 or 512 MB machines, and they won't only be the same previous gen game with a few gimmicks and better textures.

Yes CAPITALS,WIIU WILL HAVE GAMES OUT NEXT YEAR THAT DESTROY WATCHDOGS.....THATS THAT,SONY ARE SAD IF A MULTIPLAT GAME IS THE BEST PS4 CAN ACHIEVE.....

You play these multiplat games then throw them away simple,now games like

COD BO3
MARIOKART8
HALO
SMASHBROS
ZELDA
X
BAYONETTA2

ect will destroy Watchdogs in sales and hardcore Online play...except maybe Zelda....as thats the best single player adventure of all time so not really MP focused but to say Watchdogs is the pinnacle on ps4 wow..

Yes Sony will pay Ubisoft to make ps4 version look superior but that doesn't prove ps4 has best graphics ???

WiiU has edram on everything gpgpu/cpu/cache/ect.
ps4 has tons of system RAM but very moderate chip RAM.
Xbox1 has better chip RAM then ps4 not WiiU but a worse gpu than both ps4 and WiiU.
MestreRothN4G  +   192d ago
Starfox, first of all, try to keep calm next time. We know sometimes a fanboy's mind works strangely, but with some effort, maybe rational thinking can have a brief chance.

That being said, if we consider the prediction of 6 millions sales for Watch Dogs and the recent estimator of 4.3 WiiU sold worldwide (sources are IGN and MyNintendo), well, it's a little hard that those exclusives will 'crush' the blockbuster's sales anytime soon.

Just look at the most recent Super Mario sales NUMBERS to see how the biggest Nintendo franchise is going (there's a today's article about the groundbreaking one million units). Imagine the lesser ones.

You really need to step back into reality if you wish to argue about the gaming market here...

One tip: if you want to be a Nintendo fanboy, you can't talk about great games quantity or commercial success. You should be yelling about FUUUUUN and Metacritic critic score.

@BALLBAGS... read the article... Sony is going to be the console most aligned with Destiny and Watchdogs, similar to the XB360's relationship with CoD and the XB1's relationship with Titanfall, as only the first game in the series will be exclusive to MS.

"Two titles which will define what next generation gaming will look in its mature phase will be Watch Dogs and Destiny.

"These are two games we have aligned with closely and will have substantial exclusive PlayStation 4 content," Gara said.

"Sony revealed how much exclusivity they will have with these two titles back at E3 this summer. They no doubt will have other exclusive content coming from additional games, but Destiny and Watch Dogs are two impressive titles to align with."

frostypants  +   192d ago
It has potential. The problem with too many open world games is they focus too much on breadth and not enough on depth. Look at GTA V: people hype it so hard, but once you get passed the immense size of it, it is about as deep as a puddle. There's almost no interactivity. It's like driving around a cardboard city, with a few cheap mini-games tossed in to hide the fact. Games like Watch Dogs look more interesting to me, but we'll see.

supraking951  +   193d ago
there hyping the fact that multiplats are now better on Sonys console. Look at the multiplat launch titles. I mean I have a feeling the delay is due to Xbone being inferior to PS4. Ubisoft probably needed more time to work on that mess called Xbox One.
Galletto3  +   192d ago
I watched a presentation of Watchdogs at NYCC in October and it was presented on the PS4.

While it did look awesome, there were frame rate drops, stutters, and texture issues during the gameplay and even cut scenes.

This was before it was announced they were pushing it back, and frankly I was relieved to hear they were. They game was not 100% polished even a month before release, and it was apparent.

So no, the games problems and the release being pushed back are not solely reliant on any X1 issues.
starfox079  +   192d ago
Yes but we all know multiplat games are just PR wagons for who pays the most so doesn't really show off a consoles power plus I really think with 3rd party exclusives like Bayonetta2 ect and the rumoured bigger exclusive will overshadow these multiplat games that are becoming inconsistent across different platforms due to purposely downgrading certain versions to make other versions look best ect....and quality is getting worse if you ask me and will only get worse going forward ????

All i know is all 3 consoles will eventually have 4K upscaling in say 2 years but games that will look good in 4k upscaled will be Mariokart8,Smashbros4,Bayonett a2,ect FULL HD games at 60fps will look best upscaled and WiiU looks to have the most of these games ????

Basically 3rd party multiplat games will be destroyed nextyear with 1st party exclusives from Nintendo and exclusive 3rd party games mark my words....these yearly updates can only be so good and will suffer in comparison to the development that goes into exclusives ect as they are on 1 platform so more attention to detail on gameplay,polish ect,basically games like project CARS have quality that a multiplat just can't achieve Simples due to deadlines from publishers ect.

How about this?

The PS4 version will have the best graphics out of the two consoles plus it will have exclusive content.

Is that good enough to claim it as the best version of the game on consoles?
starfox079  +   191d ago
Sony wont get the best multiplat version on all games get a grip the ps4 is a moderate console power wise all this hype is just hype lets see ps4 has a laptop cpu/8GB system RAM,Rubbish weak cache,Rubbish weak chip RAM,Rubbish weak cpu cores project cars needs 4 to wiiu's 1 ??.

System RAM just looks after the assets on screen and with Havok next gen compression x10 on every wiiu devkit it's not really a bottleneck,what is a bottleneck is weak chip RAM like ps4 end of.

Chip Ram equals graphics performance.
System Ram just looks after your game assets.

Yet everyone is raving on like system RAM means power ?? no the wiiu's memory intensive design is power edram on everything remember Sonys little video saying if they went with lower system RAM and a much faster edram section they could of achieved well over a 1000GB BANDWIDTH RAM ? right this solution is what wiiu has but on wiiu it goes even further and has edram everywhere and it's rumoured wiiu has more hidden edram ????

You guys realize it was pushed back right?
Its very likely that it was delayed because it wasn't shaping up as they had hoped/expected. This extra time is allowing them to (hopefully) get it to the level of the original trailer on consoles.
14Feb-R  +   192d ago
We don't know that. They can prove it by showing another gameplay trailer. The delay only indicate that they are fixing huge amount of bugs we didn't see and finish the game. It's not like i'm wishing for a worst game , i just don't like to expect something like that until i see it or look at previous history which watch dogs doesn't have. Drive club proved it that way :)

I hope you are right, it's still a day one though :P.

You are an MS guy and even impressive games would look impressive to you .

@below
The next Uncharted will outsell and outscore every game on Xbox one. Xbox One doesnt even have an AAA franchise. Halo is dead and so is Gears of War and you saw what happened to Forza . Fable is no longer an AAA rpg as well. Uncharted 3 was awesome and outsold all x360 games . Next Uncharted is no different. On a side note,Halo 4 was garbage and the series is done after Bungie and scored 87 at metacritic. X1 will have it but at 720p so whats the point

Halo series is done and so is Xbox One i guess .. The next Uncharted game will outsell and outscore any xbox game . For Halo , maintaining even that 87 is a tough ask . Tomb raider is better than any xbox game though and i think it outscored Halo 4 lol

EliteGameKnight  +   192d ago
I know I could be jumping into the fire with this comment but here it goes: I'm sure the game will be fantastic on PS4, but I don't know how it could define next gen gaming.

On a graphics basis, the XBO and PS4 versions will probably have the same appearance. Which isn't bad when considering that it will still look great. However, please forgive me for throwing this trump card, the PC version will probably look better given that the next-gen systems don't beat out PC specs like their predecessors did 7-8 years ago.

In the stance of gameplay, mainly extra features, it really depends on how it will be utilized. If the Xbox One used the Kinect for voice commands, and the Wii U used the gamepad for say map or hacking, then I'm not sure what the PS4 would do, If you have any suggestions please let me know. The PC can also use mods which will increase the replay-ability and content of the game for those who utilize it.

I understand that the PS4 has exclusive content, and it will definitely be a great game for anyone who plays it on that system, but I don't know if "next gen defining" is really the best term to describe it. I in no way hate the PS4 or any of the big three, I am just stating my opinion.

So two games that are also releasing on old gen will define next gen??!

Sorry that makes zero sense. If Watch Dogs and Destiny are also releasing on last gen hardware then how can they possibly "define" the next gen!

Games that define the next gen will be games that are only possible on next gen hardware. Whether that be for the visuals of because of game play mechanics if they are possible on the previous gen hardware how do they define anything?
wonderfulmonkeyman  +   192d ago
Agreed.
Saying that a single game will define what next-gen games are, makes no sense.
Any game designed specifically for one of the three next-gen systems, is going to be a next-gen game.
Not a port of a last-gen game.

To be honest, if anything is going to "define a next-gen console" I would say it would be a feature of the console itself, and not a game. Throughout the life cycles of the new systems, there are going to be many updates, and I wouldn't be surprised if they included these "defining" features.

I don't see things like 1080p/60fps in games, as anything "defining" of next-gen. It's like they're finally catching up to where games have been years ago.

Of the big titles coming out, this is one that is actually in my "rent not buy list," at least based on what I've seen so far. Between The Division, Destiny, and possibly The Crew, Watchdogs just doesn't seem to compare in the open-world genre.

yeah i get that been there done that sort of vibe like they put a futuristic spin on assassins creed and threw in a lot of farcry elements, not overly excited for it but the crew and the division now they have me excited

Not sure about what sony means about "next-gen gaming in it's mature phase".

For consoles i believe that is a huge step in gaming area but, since when PS4 or any other console will define "Next-Gen gaming"?

It's a total lack of respect for the PC, which truly brought us the next-gen gaming even before the "next-gen" consoles get released.

So in my opinion it's really really stupid and selfish to say that a piece of hardware with PC components that are already out of date in power specs will define whatever they think it will.

As i said in the consoles area PS4 and Xone are the light at the end of the tunnel but for those who had the chance to enjoy PC gaming...it's nonsense.

Please notice that i'm not against consoles or whatsoever i'm just against hypes and big companies tricking their clients for a bigger profit.
