Here's the updated post:

"Development on both consoles was very smooth since they are both very similar to PCs. Last generation was very difficult and even nightmarish. Both XboxOne and PS4 were easy to deal with and the 1st partys were both there to help us out.

The one gray area was understanding both Sony and MS requirements for the consoles. They were trying to figure them out themselves.

The touchpad is used for scrolling through the map, adding waypoints, zooming etc.

Overall it was super smooth to develop on NG

EDIT - There seems to be a misunderstanding about me saying "Last generation was very difficult and even nightmarish". I was referring to general game development on the generation switch between Last Gen (PS2 and Xbox) and Current Gen (PS3 and Xbox360). That was a very tough transition, where the PS3 to PS4 was a much smoother and easier one.

PS3/Xbox360 development of Black Flag was very smooth as this is the end of the generation and we know the tech inside and out."

<< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >> The author didn't even bother reading the actual post. Ashraf Ismail was talking about the transition to PS3 and X360 years ago being "nightmarish" and was comparing it to next-gen, not ACIV's development on current-gen consoles.

You might want to go read the source material for this again...
There used to be a time when Gamespot was the best games journalism website.

<< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >> It was wrong even for when it came out. They reviewed a 'value added' box, not the actual game. The whole review is completely out of perspective, since its not for a F2P game. The full game was available for free to everyone even then.

Decent review. You could have given it an 8.0 though :(

Yes, scrap cloud gaming. It's a foolish notion. I hate digital enough already, this is taking it too far.
