Wow. Forget the next 'Grand Theft Auto'. This looks.. even better than the real thing. New game from UbiSoft. Very impressive.

Ubi just said that the game will be coming to 360 and PS3, so it is not specifically next gen.

The Xbox and the Playstation 2 had some really great looking titles at the end of their generation cycle.  Seems like Watch Dogs is squeezing everything that the 360 and PS3 has.

The game looks great graphically, but I was more impressed by the crowd interactions. They just seemed real. Of course, the demo could've been completely scripted for all I know, but if it wasn't that is pretty groundbreaking.

Definitely intrigued.  I've gotten fairly burned out on the usual GTA-like "sandbox" genre, so this looks like a welcomed change and update on the gameplay, content, intrigue, and storytelling.

I seriously doubt that demo was running on a 360 or a PS3. They just have too large limitations for that to work. What you saw was probably running on PC.

Ohhh, looks very cool. Very atmospheric. Love how everything looked fluid, with everyone reacting naturally. Wonder if it's using the Assassin's Creed engine as the symbol above people's heads remind me of it.

It's incredible to me how this came from out of nowhere to basically be everyone's most anticipated game.

Honestly, I cannot wait.

I hope we're not waiting until Holiday 2013 (or beyond), but I suspect that'll probably be the case.

Ha,this is pretty interesting

Conspiracy time:Is Watch Dogs actually Assassins Creed 4?

Quote
Why Watch Dogs COULD be an Assassin's Creed game

- It's a game about assassinating people.

- The 'Ubisoft Presents' title at the start of the demo is very reminiscent of the AC games.

- When the hero picks up info using his phone at 1.32, it's the exact same visual device they use for blending in Assassin's Creed 3

- The Animus evolves every game, and so much of Watch Dogs looks 'in Animus'. Even the mini-map looks similar.

- Joseph DeMarco presents 'Dot Connexion' is written on the theatre. Is this a tease, inviting us to guess how the game is connected to other things? Or is it just a reinforcement of the core gameplay mechanic? (Everything is connected, so you can hack it all etc)

- He does look like a modern day Assassin. His hat is his hood, his phone is his wrist-blade.

- At 3.02. Look at the wall on the right. Looks like memory sequences from AC.

- The end line says 'Everything is connected. Connection is power'.


There is a video in the link for the bolded parts above


Quote
Why Watch Dogs definitely ISN'T an Assassin's Creed game

- Ubisoft like to share tech and ideas (Splinter Cell uses Assassin's Creed climbing animations, Ghost Recon uses large text floating in the sky like Splinter Cell Conviction etc). Everything in Watch Dogs is most likely Ubisoft sharing their ideas and tech.

- Watch Dogs already has a load of buzz. Why have one exciting brand when you can have two?



I seriously doubt it is,but it would be funny if it turned out to be true

Honestly, 2013 as a launch title for the next gen consoles.

And the only reason they're able to do this is that those new consoles will be running very PC-like hardware and APIs.

wow, I'm going to have to pay attention to the Wii U version.  I imagine having the gamepad will open up some nice interactivity.

Might have to do a double dip with that and the PC version.

[edit] of course I bet the PC version gets delayed at least a month.

Well right, but I meant that the visual quality difference won't be nearly the same as when Madden was coming out on PS1 and PS2 at the same time.

You may think so now, but just wait until you see actual comparison vids later this year and begin to notice the draw-in, poor textures, low framerate, low resolution (less than 720p) and spotty AI in the PS3/360 version. The PS4/Durango version will most likely have high-quality textures and effects, 60 fps (or close to it) framerate, 1080p resolution, and better AI. These things may seem very conceptual right now, but they'll become increasingly obvious as we get closer to the new console's release.

looks like the PC is the lead platform for this one:

Quote
Als je naar de specificaties van de PS4 kijkt, dan zie je dat het redelijk op een PC lijkt. Is het porten van games naar de PC en de PS4 en vice versa makkelijker daardoor?

Yves: We hebben naar mijn mening maar één game gehad die echt problemen had met een port en dat is Ghost Recon: Future Soldier. Het PC-project had beter gemanaged kunnen worden. Maar met de andere merken wordt er heel veel tijd en moeite gestoken in dat alle platformen de perfecte game hebben.

We verwachten ook minder problemen met het porten van games naar de PS4 dan bij de PS3, die een compleet andere infrastructuur had. Het wordt nu makkelijker. Vroeger ontwikkelden we games eerst op de Xbox 360 en die werden vervolgens vertaald naar de PS3. Het kostte veel tijd en geld om die port te maken. Nu ontwikkelen we vanuit de PC en worden die versies vertaald naar een console als de PlayStation 4.

If you look at the specifications of the PS4 look, you see that it looks pretty on a PC. Is porting games to PC and vice versa PS4 and therefore easier?

Yves: We have, in my opinion, but a game that had really had problems with a port and that's Ghost Recon: Future Soldier. The PC project could be better managed. But with the other brands there is a lot of time and effort in which all platforms have the perfect game.

We also expect fewer problems with porting games to the PS4 than the PS3, which had a completely different infrastructure. It is now easier. Previously, we developed first games on the Xbox 360 and which were then translated into the PS3. It took a lot of time and money to make that port. Now we develop from the PC and which versions are translated into a console like the PlayStation 4.

I've already decided to do that with all the games that are coming out on next-gen consoles. I'd rather wait a few months and get the optimal experience, if I even have to do that.
