'Watch Dogs' Will Be The Wii U's Biggest Third Party Test

Forbes - May 27th will bring the release of Watch Dogs for Sony’s PS4 and PS3, Microsoft’s Xbox One and 360, and PC. Production is wrapping up on all those versions, and now Ubisoft has the time to turn their attention to one final platform, Nintendo’s Wii U.

Here's to it passing with flying colors!

I'll play it on pc first.... or buy it cheap on steam. How can it be the biggest test when they are not saying why we should wait on the wiiu version.

We all know it will fail because first it isn't that great gameplay wise from what I see. And I'd rather wait on project cars.

It already failed. No way this game is doing anything on Wii U, the sales will come from PS4 and XBOX One, those are the real consoles for real gamers.

The Wii had it's time for a lot of years, but the fad era is over... thank god, time for some real gaming.

What on earth are you talking about..."real gaming"!? I suppose the definition 'real' for you is some socially awkward adolescent locked in his bedroom/pit whittling down the hours on some trite JRPG.

Gaming is for EVERYBODY!

Dont tell me games such as Mario Kart 8, Wonderful 101 and SM3DW aren't real games because they don't strive for some false notion that only semi-realistic (which will look dated very fast), violent and story-driven (for story see B-movie standard) games matter.

I've been playing games since around 1988 (almost 32 years old now), and I own a Wii U and love it. Thanks for letting me know I'm not a real gamer.

Lol @ you.

videgamenext11507d ago

Wow i feel dummer by reading that idiotic statement.

Lightning Mr Bubbles1507d ago

Please guys, it's top selling game is Wii Fit. The fad is over.

You guys have no argument

Where's yer helmet, soldier?
Can't fight no console wars without yer helmet.
It's that rubber one right over yonder, btw. XP

NirvanaInChains1506d ago

you must a teeny bop considering the only console you relate nintendo to is the wii lol. And kinect & ps camera is not a fad? Glad i was born before 1995. This generation has to be the biggest group of close minded gamers ever. Maybe some day someone will show you all the great games you miss out on.

only if it released at the same time as competition, then maybe

WiiUsauce1506d ago

Bullshit. A game that's released MONTHS after it's already been released on other platforms is supposed to determine future 3rd party releases from Ubi and other devs?? HA, what a stupid mindset. Of course your game wont sell well months after it's been available on other systems with MUCH, MUCH higher install bases (PS3 and 360 over 140 mil combined compared to 6 mil for Wii U). Smh these articles are retarded.

I really want to play this game, but man I do not want to wait months to play the Wii U version. HOWEVER, I think I just might do that. With the gamepad it just may be the better version.

Also I am sure the Wii U version will look better than PS360's but I do not know it is going to be hard not to pick this up for PS4. I will wait for the reviews.

Benjaminkno1508d ago

Yeah, I'm waiting for the Nintendo version because I think it might be better/more fun. And I also want to support (serious) 3rd party on WiiU.

I hope it comes out in the fall.

LOL_WUT1507d ago

Just pick it up for either the X1 or the PS4 you don't have to wait on either of those consoles. ;)

Neonridr1508d ago

I just wish they could give us a concrete release date. If they were to say that the game will release in September or October, I would wait. But I don't think I can hold out for 6 months with a PS4 version staring me straight in the face.

I want to find out some of the cool features they are going to utilize with the gamepad. I do truly feel that this game has the potential to play very well on the Wii U. I am not worried about the XB1 and PS4 versions looking better.

Benjaminkno1507d ago

Hmm.. i guess i could bubble since i didnt mean to disagree.

6 months is a bit much.

I might have to do both.

Neonridr1507d ago

lol, no worries. People get so many "phantom" disagrees anyways, even if they speak the truth here.

Yes 6 months would be torture. End of Summer would be perfect.

N4g_null1507d ago

Now a test would have been watchdogs taking the place of zombi u.

Sincere01211507d ago (Edited 1507d ago )

Watch dogs won't sell well on Wii U unfortunately as Ubisoft has sabotaged it with this delay. I'm still getting it on Wii U tho. Mario kart will take up a lot of my time so I don't mind waiting until whenever watchdogs comes out.
