The game itself looks great so far. The only problem is that the main character looks like a dork..
..Or a pervert. Maybe both. I hope they can use the extra development time to change these two features of the main character.
It's a shame that its not coming out until spring, but there is a lot of games coming out that will keep me busy
From the Amazon Watchdogs bundle page: "Product Alert: All orders for the Watch Dogs PlayStation 4 bundle will keep their place in line and we will fulfill the PlayStation 4 (without the Watch Dogs game) in accordance with your current delivery estimate. We are working on adjusting these orders and will update you as soon as we know more."
I think it was stupid for them to make Watchdogs a cross-gen title.
Hear me out. I know they will lose money from this gen but they had the chance to take a foot hold in the next gen market
One of the things that made Assassin's creed stand out, it was first big non first -party title to show the potential of that gen.
All next gen Watchdogs will show is better textures(and if rumors are right it won't even have a better frame rate) and the weaknesses of the past-gen.
Very odd that this story isn't getting more traffic. Perhaps it's difficult to find when navigating through the new website design?
I really like the gameplay, look and everything about Watch Dogs. But, in the same time I have bad feeling - in a way which tells me that the game will be just as boring and repetitive, like every other game we have seen from Ubisoft in a loong long time.
So, people who wanted to buy a next-gen console to play this game will have to wait. It must be disappointing for them. Maybe, they won't even buy consoles before the game release day.
That's very disappointing, was looking forward to it coming out. I won't hold my breath waiting for it now. Gonna just forget about it altogether. They marketed the crap out of it aswell. It's really lousy. I don't care about Assassins creed 4 so won't be getting any Ubisoft games this christmas so anyway screw it.
They say they want to"win the next gen ". What a crock of crap. Delaying games at the last minute makes them losers in my book.
I doubt this had much to do with "polishing" the game. It never made any business sense to have both AC and Watch dogs released at the same time. It would be like Rockstar releasing a GTA & Red Dead at the same time.
That's a pretty significant next gen console launch title. As unimpressive as both consoles' overall launch lineups are, they are now even more so.
That s good news for me, I want to play so many games before Watch Dogs, now I have the chance =D kkkk
no big deal realy, there s tons of games coming out this holiday. I m looking foward the current gen games yet, like Castlevania LoS2.
No big deal. I wish they did this more often, if a game isn't ready then wait. Take the time needed and put out a finished product, stop rushing games out just to get kids money. I'd rather wait a few extra months and get a quality version then be playing through a buggy mess that you just have to wait for patches anyway.
With video games, first impression is everything and no amount of patching or DLC can give that awesome game first impression back to you. (hope that makes sense)
Something's weird, maybe because it is a video now... I came to the site a few hours ago and there was a written article with hundreds of complaints... Err, I meant comments.... Well my only statement is, I guess I can cancel my ps4 preorder now....
@RevengeNegative Yeah. They should reskin it with a pirate theme and move it to the jungle. Seriously though, Watch Dogs looks like modernized urban Farassins Cried. How many times is Ubi going to regurgitate the same basic game with a reskinned world and a new story.
