What would it take for you to consider getting it on Wii U instead of Xbox One or Ps4? They've stated in the past that they had the Wii U version up and running before even starting on the PS360 versions of the game, so it's safe to assume the game is based on (assumably) a downscaled version for the new consoles.

As long as it doesn't look awful in comparison, I could see myself getting it on Wii U; that is kind of the point of complaining about no third-party support, isn't it?

The game is too stripped down on the Wii U

There's no advantages at all

Since I won't be getting a PS4 until maybe a year after launch, I'll get it for Wii U.

If I get the game at all, I'll get it on Wii U. I'm waiting to see some footage, though.

Right?? All the awesome games that I want don't come out for another year for PS4. Almost like a Wii U situation if you ask me. lol I want Tom Clancy's the Division, Final Fantasy XV and DESTINY!!

I'll be getting it for PC, but it's good to see that it's coming to Wii U.

If I get an Ubisoft title for Wii U this year, it will be Watch_Dogs. Maybe ACIV: Black Flag as well, but that's less likely. I haven't watched much footage of Watch_Dogs so I don't know a whole lot about how it plays yet.

I've seen both versions of the game running

The graphics are taking a big hit on the Wii U, especially when there's any kind of environmental change like rain or fog.

Based on a ten second clip in a Nintendo Direct stream (which by the way, Nintendo doesn't run in full 1080p)?

We'll see. It was announced to be releasing for the PS3 and 360 before it was announced to be releasing on the PS4 and X1. It can't be all that technically advanced.

I'm not sure if I want this on wii u or not. 
I'm not a huge fan of the gamepad but if they do something interesting with it or if they don't and allow pro controller support I will at least consider the wii u version. Otherwise I will get it on PC most likely. The graphics for this game look great but I feel like they haven't shown what the ps3/360 or wii u version look like yet. (unless the ps4/pc/x1 look even better than what they are showing which I doubt)

Also does this game have multiplayer? I wonder what that would be like on wii u as I haven't played any multiplayer games on my wii u yet.

^Yeah a multiplayer mode of some kind has been announced for Watch Dogs. The online multiplayer modes in Black Ops 2 and Monster Hunter 3 on Wii U work well for me. With Assassin's Creed 3, though, it's not always easy to find a match. Though I haven't played AC3's multiplayer in a few weeks, so I don't know how active it has been.

I won't be getting a PS4 until they fix the bugs that will likely plague it, so that leaves me with PS3 vs Wii U version, so the Wii U version it is

I'll check reviews to see if either the Wii-U or PS3 version is superior or similar, then rent it on that. I'm rather wary of Ubisoft.

I'm kinda torn between PC and WiiU. The PC version is cheaper (Uplay shop puts it at £15 less then WiiU, PS3 and 360 which is quite a bit less) and I'd prefer mouse/keyboard to play it with although the gamepad does appeal depending on its use. However my PC is pretty old and although im planning on replacing it (its wasn't entirely up2date when i got it back in 2006). A new PC would be VERY pricey (far more then that £15 mentioned earlier) so the Wii U one is looking better as of right now.

Either way its not going 2 be a day 1 purchase so i'll wait for reviews/player feedback before going ahead with it.

Thats a good point. I do plan to get assassins creed, rayman, and splinter cell. Maybe I'll consider ubisofts efforts in supporting the wii u. It may be hard to pass up the lower cost and better graphics on the pc though.

I've got Watch Dogs and AC4 preordered for Wii U. Don't let me down Ubisoft!

At least i'm getting them for 40 bucks each at launch. :P

The game looks great, but this won't be a day 1 buy for me, i'm actually playing Arkham City, New Super Mario U and Assassin's Creed 3... then Rayman Legends in September. October get's crazy with Batman: Arkham Origins, Wind Waker HD, Assassin's Creed 4....

 

Watch Dogs will have to wait, it's also similar in gameplay to Batman and Assassin's Creed, so i change of pace would be welcomed.

I'm getting the WiiU version simply because I'm not getting a PS4 until the next King Of Fighters comes out and because if it has online, I can guarantee that it'll be free to play.

Will get it for Wii U, either at launch or before the holidays. I'll make someone buy it for me as a Xmas gift ;)

PS4 and X1 : I'll definitely wait before I buy any of these consoles (wait for a price drop, check out their reviews, etc).

I'm not sold on the game at all yet.  But, if I were interested, I'd pick the WiiU version if it offered something unique with the Gampad.  If not, I'd go with the PS4 version.

Depends on graphics comparison for Watchdogs, and what the tablet controller can really do with it.

Also on what the multiplayer for the game will be like, as well as how optimized it is on PC.

I have considered it for WiiU, but I think I am leaning more towards either PC, or PS4 with it. 

That being said I already am planning on getting a few multiplats for the WiiU. Like Deus Ex (haven't played it, but I want to see what it can do with the tablet controller) Same for the new Splinter Cell game (unless it really looks horrible in comparison)

Cause I do want to help out for the third party support for the WiiU.

It's very interesting you're so invested, solves a lot of questions.

And I'm not paying more for less; I'm choosing not to spend 400 extra dollars for better graphics and a more populated city, and I'll enjoy the game just fine. I appreciate your concern, though. Thank you.

I'm getting a PS4 at launch and I'm still going to get it for Wii U instead.

1. For controller bonuses since having a touch screen to at least house a map or hot swap items will make things more intuitive IMO

2. For off tv play potentially

3. To support third parties on Wii U

I'm going to be playing it on an old 26 inch 720p TV anyway so even if the PS4 version looked a lot better without a big 1080p TV I can't imagine I'd lose all that much.

Awhile back, when they announced the Wii U version, they claimed that they already had the game running on Wii U, while they hadn't even started the ps3 and 360 versions; this statement has me hoping the graphics won't be all that bad, since it's safet to assume they wouldn't have to down-res as much as they do on the older systems.

Even though I'm getting a PS4 at launch, I'm getting this for Wii-U since I promised Ubisoft I would if the game came out on Wii-U.

I haven't seen anything to say that the Wii-U version will be weaker.

To combat the unhelpful, imagine Grand Theft Auto in futuristic Chicago... Now, imagine you have a cell phone that can control literally any electronic device in the city; now set yourself free in that city, and do...... pretty much whatever you want...

That's Watch Dogs.

Some people like explaining games to extremely lazy people. I am not one of them. Plus, a gameplay video is going to describe a game way better than any forum user can. Honestly, how hard is it to google Watch Dogs? It's easier than posting about not knowing about it...
