Watch Dogs coming to PC and consoles in 2013

I'd have thought Nintendo should be pushing to get this on the Wii U at the same time as the other versions, though them some cash if they have to. Some of the gameplay elements looked like they could work very well with the pad.

I totally agree if nintendo had gotten ubi to add this to their press conference then people would be feeling a lot differently about it.

I can understand why nintendo haven't botherd giving the WiiU a huge graphical boost. But if they had they could be dominating the next gen before its even begun.

They have to bring this to Wii U,it's simply made for using the pad. I'd be smashing the boss's door down if i was working there telling him the same thing!

Bit gutted they aren't saving it for next gen. The game won't look anything like the gameplay shown at e3, PS3 and 360 are just too ancient to handle a open world game to look that good.

This is disappointing news. Can't they do this game for the PS4? It will be like Battlefield 3 i.e they will dumb down the game for the PS3 & xBox360 & it won't look as good as this(PC)version. Saying that Battlefield 3[console versions] is nowhere as good looking as the PS3 only game Killzone 3.

That's silly not releasing it on the next-gen machines.

They will probably release it on next gen, they said they want it on as many consoles as possible so that will include ps3 and 360 as well as next gen
also they would not be allowed to say if it was coming to next gen console without sony and microsoft slitting there throats

No matter what CVG like to think I don't think we saw anything "next gen" at E3. Star Wars and Watch Dogs were played on the PC with settings at max no doubt. Both will be on current gen systems in my opinion. Why would they be showing games for consoles that are yet to be announced? :|

Now what I'd like to see from Watch Dogs is console gameplay. Sure the graphics won't be good as a maxed out PC but when have they ever been? It'll still look good on current gen consoles and the gameplay will still be there and that's what has me interested in this game.

I wouldn't get too excited over Watch Dogs and Star Wars 1313. All those guys are doing is using a high end PC version to build up hype like DICE did with Battlefield 3. It likely won't look anywhere close to that good on the PS3/Xbox 360. Looking just at the gameplay of those games, it's nothing new. Watch Dogs had really nice environmental detail (which I'd expect on an expensive PC) and the in game hacking was neat. Star Wars 1313 looked fairly fresh for a cover shooter and it was nicely cinematic and the sound seemed fantastic.

Game of the show for me was easily Dishonored. It was fresh and a nice blend of Bioshock and Assassins Creed. I think it could potentially be a big hit. Tomb Raider disappointed me. On rails, incredibly easy looking, melodramatic and an obvious Uncharted clone. I wont totally write it off though.

I agree on Dishonored being the game of the show, unfortunately I can't see it being a big hit, it's released alongside games like Assassins Creed 3 and other big name sequels, could easily be a sleeper for GOTY.

So much lack of faith here...wait until you see it on consoles before declaring it watered down. I mean at one of the Watch Dogs stage demo the developer made a valid point of how current gen still offers great visuals and used Far Cry 3 and Assassins Creed III as examples.


I for one, can't wait to see more of it and besides, gameplay -> graphics.
