'Watch Dogs' dev on PS4 & Xbox One: Didn't know what 'the hell they would be'

Watch Dogs is setting up to be a game that could ultimately define how we view multi-player and single player within the context of a new generation's environment. With that said, Ubisoft didn't always know that Watch Dogs was going to be on certain consoles, when you consider the current state of the PS4 and Xbox One. In fact, there was quite a large amount of uncertainty surrounding what exactly the PS4 and Xbox One would ultimately be.

"It's not an easy thing to do that when you code for a console one way and then you come back in the next day and it's different."

I guess that's the reason why the game doesn't look as good as inFamous: SS .

"I guess that's the reason why the game doesn't look as good as inFamous: SS ."

Well Watchdogs has a lot more going on in its world for a start. A LOT more.

GamerXD1441d ago

You can add that. I know Watch Dogs is bigger and has a living environment with loads of AI.

Anyway, All I'm going to do with WD is chase criminals before starting some missions. (Wanna build a good reputation :D)

The thing with Infamous SS is that, yeah it's a pretty game, but I feel they spent too much time on the pretty and forgot to flesh out the game in other areas.

Don't get me wrong, I love the game a lot, but Infamous 1 and 2 had so much more to offer and were actually bigger than Second Son as well. You can see the priorities for Second Son were very different than they were for the first two games.

Watch Dogs I would say is more in line with the first two Infamous games in terms of a complete experience, but obviously with more added to it.

Shadonic1441d ago

watch dogs 6 different platforms with a lot more to do

Infamous 1 platform with barely anything to do besides replaying the game or waiting for papertrails.

Dynasty20211441d ago (Edited 1441d ago )

And Infamous SS looks about as good as games did back in 2010.

Stop banging that ISS drum. It's not THAT pretty of a game.

"Graphics we've had since 2010, a short story and NOTHING to do in the world! WAHAY! PS4! PS4!"

DragonKnight1441d ago

Obvious ignorant troll is obviously ignorant.

ramiuk11441d ago

This just proves that watchdogs isn't really a dedicated next gen title. Making a game on a hope and a prayer, not even knowing final specs or architecture but still guesstimating what they might be creates safe bets and no pushing of unique hardware.

Games that have started development since the launch of the new consoles can be considered 'next gen titles'. This is a bridging game that will be good but not a benchmark of what can be achieved. Maybe watchdogs 2.

Im really looking forward to watchdogs and I'm not trying to take anything away from this great title, but its getting boring having waited so long that most of the initial excitement has waned due to so many changes, delays and issues.

That NVidia tech demo for Watch Dogs is impressive. Maybe one of the games that is best to get on PC.

jeromeface1441d ago

All games are best to get on pc...

incendy351441d ago

Depends for me, for example Mass Effect not having Controller support made me enjoy the console versions more. Titanfall, I enjoy more on X1 because most of my friends are playing it there.

Can't argue with graphics though, PC's always offer the best graphics on games.

curtis921441d ago

I love seeing comments like "I'm losing interest, too many delays"

So... the thing that interested you about the game initially -- THE GAMEPLAY -- has now taken a backseat to the TIMING of release? What!?

After so many games are rushed to the market that are either half of a game or a broken game altogether, you honestly are going get onto Ubi for delaying the game and giving it their all to make a properly awesome open world game?

Then you all bash them because the PC footage they showed 2 years ago doesn't quite look as good on ps4 (which they didn't know the specs of at the time, had to take a shot in the dark).

God there is NO pleasing some people. Just complain about anything and everything. I dont know if its something personal in your life making you this way but damn. Get a grip.

RebelWAC1441d ago (Edited 1441d ago )

I understand what you´re saying Curtis but I haven´t seen anyone on this comment section say that they are losing interest. On the contrary, I´ve seen more and more people gaining interest the closer we get to the realese date discussing pros/cons around gameplay.

The issue people have with the "downgrade" is just an example of us gamers pet peeves and really nothing to be bothered by imo.

If UBI can pull this one off with all the bs that´s been floating around this IP, gamers will rejoice over their accomplishment. I know I will.

heisenberguk1441d ago

People are saying it because they're frustrated about how Ubisoft has handled this game and you can't blame them! Not showing ACTUAL footage then hinting that the footage they have shown having a different platform's buttons mapped onto them! It's annoying that this close to release nobody knows what their platform of choice's version looks like!

USMC431441d ago

"Then you all bash them because the PC footage they showed 2 years ago doesn't quite look as good on ps4 (which they didn't know the specs of at the time, had to take a shot in the dark)."

The games been in development for 4 years. You honestly believe one of the worlds largest developers/publishers didn't know the specs of the next gen consoles? I don't know whether you're being naive or you're just dumb.

PrinceOfAllSaiyans1441d ago

Yea if you have a 1000 dollars to waste on a PC. PS4 version won't look nearly as good.

Meltic1440d ago

BS. IT will look almost as good. Ps4 is just missing TXAA and HBAO features they said.
