Watch Dogs Now Confirmed For Wii U


Ubisoft has issued a press release which states that Watch Dogs will officially be coming to Wii U when the game launches later this year. Watch Dogs has long been rumoured to be coming to Wii U with multiple online retailers listing the game for release on the format. A leaked poster which was published confirmed that the game is coming this holiday season for all consoles.

Thanks to everyone that sent this in.


    1. Calm down, man. They are getting versions for both PS3 and PS4. The most important thing is that this game is now confirmed for Wii U. Period.

      But I’m still waiting for Bioshock Infinite.

      1. I’m very happy for this! another excellent game confirmed for Wiiu. PS4 Looks interesting , and i WILL buy one , but i’m 3DS , WIIU man all the wat this gen.

      2. Uploading your clips to the facebook page…fucking usless. who goes to facebook to watch videos? Sony should have made the share button go to youtube not fucking facebook.

      3. Here’s Nintendo’s chance to do it better by letting you post gameplay videos to Miiverse.

      4. Except he’s right. Video sharing is a good idea. Video sharing to facebook is wasted potential.

        Just think of all the “let’s play” videos on youtube, and how this would make that easier, for example.

      5. and nowhere was it mentioned that youtube wouldn’t be a potential option, especially given how both current playstation platforms have it and even certain games support it. alternatively, just take the goddamn video and upload it to YT elsewhere

        use your head

      6. They don’t need to say shit for a console that’s launch in the holiday season, they explained the feature. That’s that.

        Now use your fucking head.

      7. Idiot the videos you gonna sharing will be post on your FaceBook profile and your friends to see it

      8. For me the new gameplay demo of Watch Dogs was the highlight of the PS4 reveal. The graphics were great in the other demos but the gameplay itself was boring to watch. Hoping E3 is better.

      9. Look up some gameplay videos on youtube. They are much better than what was shown at the press conference today. Remember that they had limited time to show off Watch Dogs so you might want to find a seven minute long gameplay video.

      10. I know , the PS4’s graphics weren’t THAT impressive. But in one one way they were. For start of console life graphics they were amazing. I expect the Wiiu WHEN MAXED OUT (Zelda Wiiu) to look pretty much as good as them , like the Zelda tech demo for example.

        But once Developers max PS4 out in a 2-3 years it will have better graphics than Wiiu. But wiiu will still have excellent modern DX10/11 graphics albeit probably at a lower resoloution.

        Most Wiiu games will come at 720p native to allow the devs to squeeze more juice out of it.

      11. Watchdogs footage shown was running on a PC again, so we’ve yet to see exactly how it will look on any consoles yet.

      12. HAHAHAHAHAHA Wii u graphic like a PS4 HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA oh that was good one keep dreaming

      13. I aint dreaming mate. The Wiiu when maxed out will look close to a ps4 I kid you not. The Wiiu will have Zelda tech demo graphics eventually , we aint sen nothing yet.


      15. i agree. this next generation im going to try to be as well rounded. this generation, for the longest time, i just had a wii and a 360. now i also have a beefed up pc, a wiiu, a 3ds and a vita, and seeing ass all ps4 games will be playable via stream to my dusty underplayed vita, im all for it.

    2. Nintendo needs to keep their cards closer to their chest in future. It’s like Sony let’s Nintendo test the waters see how their ideas are received and then tries to improve on the good ones. The vita has been able to asynchronously play games etc all along but they have never plugged this as I key selling point until they see how it was received first. I appreciate they are trying to build on that experience but I don’t understand why they don’t have enough faith in their innovation to be bold and put something out there rather than just try and cover aes of the other consoles. The whole unique feature and selling point of the wii u was the asynchronous play but as they released early it has given the other sony the opportunity to cover this withtheir system. What Sony showed was pretty sweet but I just wanted them to take a whole new direction with something totally innovative and different not just build upon ideas we have already seen in some form. In future Nintendo should let the other two reve
      al their ideas first

      1. Key selling point. Paying £200 extra for the Vita console on top of the £400 you’re paying for the PS3. And it only does SOME too.

        But on the plus side there won’t be the excuse for devs for the Gamepad screen.

    3. Yet Watch_Dogs was announced for the PS4 last night… I don’t they are going to shut up for a long time

      1. I been thinking about something realy wierd if the ps4 is has powerful has we know and developers know it why do i see more support now that the ps4 hasta ben anounced?

      2. I know but what if developers are being cautios about feature of the ps4 that where not show.

      3. Developers already know what the PS4 can do as evidenced by the previews of games in development for it, which has nothing to do with the conference today.

      4. But there is much info about the console vital for purchase that we dont know like if the system is going full digital. Dont know but ps4 leave whit more questions than aswers.

      5. Yeah and Nintendo answered all questions about the Wii U when it was first revealed.

        By the way it’s “with” not “whit”.

      6. Atleast we knew it had a disk drive :P
        Also the thing will be released this cristhmas.

      7. Well, actually devs can be more open about secret projects that were on unannounced systems.

      1. except that would cost like $8,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 (i like to exaggerate)

        there’s a reason why people stick with one console…..well, for a while, at least.

      2. Same for me. Wii U for Nintendo games, PS4 for Sony games and third party games and PC for Steam. Screw Microsoft, Xbox isn’t worth getting for me.

  1. Was nice to see some more gameplay footage too.

    Running on PC again, but still.

    Will be interesting to see how all the versions stack up. I’ll either be getting it on Wii U or PC.

    1. Still good to see today has been a great day for Sony & Nintendo :D But that PS4 reveal, oh my goodness!

    2. That’s debatable.
      PS4 = big tech display with a few gameplay teasers and a few new games.
      And a social focus that Nintendo is doing too, albeit differently.
      Nothing big on the innovation front in terms of gameplay.
      If they want my money, they’d better bring a TON of gameplay reasons to show off.

      1. Killzone for me was the weakes game show not graphicaly but in gameplay but that platformer looked great and it had some nice gameplay ideas.

      2. The “share” button is what sold me on this console that looks poised to deliver the same thing we have seen for years from Sony…Sony is such a copycat company its ridiculous! Ill get one in about # years when it has a reasonable price.

      3. You’re such a fanboy it is ridiculous. If you’re thinking NIntendo invented the idea of sharing, then you really need a reality check. Miiverse isn’t exactly “innovative”/ Social networks have been around FOR YEARS.

    1. Few complaints and concerns, mainly the facts that they didn’t actually show the system and didn’t talk about any physical media.

      Otherwise, I thought it was amazing. 2013 will be another great year for gamers.

      1. I was gone for like only five minutes when SE’s thing was on; I didn’t even know they were going to be there. That had to have been a really short segment if they were gone in only five minutes. Geez.

      2. Lol, I did the same thing. I walked in as the Square Enix logo showed up at the end. Go watch it on YouTube if you haven’t seen it yet.

    2. not impressed at all. Everyone freaking out over specs and polygon counts. Screwed up priorities ftw. Didn’t even show the console, or how the touchpad is used.

      1. Remember this was just the initial reveal. There’s still GDC and E3.

        Plus they showed a LOT more than just specs and polygon counts. They talked about a ton of other stuff.

      2. yeah man, when I play my games, I’m always staring at a black box laying on my shelf.

        lmao “Screwed up priorities”, makes me wonder what the hell are yours

      3. So, would you want a giant pink box, half the size of your TV sitting there? Either way, the appearence of your console matters in keeping your playing room looking nice.

      4. That was referring to the polygon count and specs talk. Yet again, the irony of someone who mocks other people for their reading comprehension skills

    3. It was decent, but they didn’t show much gameplay and what they did show can be done, graphically at least, on the Wii U imo.

      1. Lol he doesnt have to try again. Nfs and pikmin 3 look just as good as that. Nobody even gives a shit either…

      2. you’re not trying hard enough buddy

        goes to show how retarded nintendo fanboys are when they’re in denial

      3. just because it looks like chocolate doesn’t mean it tastes like it.It’s a metaphor if you didn’t know. what i’m talking about is just because it has good graphics doesn’t mean its a good game i’m pretty sure haze was the worst game i ever played and it was on ps3 and had pretty good graphics for the time

      4. Project CARS nuff said. You do realize that all the graphics engines shown for PS4 yesterday are about the same level as Unreal 4, and the Wii U is capable of running them, right? HERP DERP

      5. which is not a wii u game, it’s a multiplatform game across numerous platforms


        epic recommends UE3 on the Wii U, not UE4, there is not a single UE4 Wii U tech demo on Wii U, while there is one for the PS4

        simple math, now find the answer why is that the case :)

      6. You asked for a game, that’s on Wii U, that looks that good. You didn’t say exclusive Wii U. Epic said it’s a good fit for the console, that’s not recommending it. They said developers can use Unreal 4 if they choose to. Maybe developers were waiting for the PS4 announcement to showcase Unreal 4 games. That doesn’t mean there won’t be any on Wii U. Need I mention all the other engines that are nearly on par with Unreal 4 that are available for Wii U? Frostbite 2, Cry Engine 3, Unity 4, etc. You have no idea why an Unreal 4 game hasn’t been shown on Wii U, but your trolling nature leads you to believe it can’t handle it. That monolith software game, in early form, using something other than Unreal 4, looks pretty damn good, you can’t say that it doesn’t.

      7. I asked for a /Wii U game/, not a PC port

        you did not present any, so I don’t give a fuck else what you listed if it is not an exclusive built from the ground up

      8. UE4 is highly scalable. A phone can run UE4. Just because the Wii U can run it, doesn’t mean it is on the same level. Like PC would be able to harness it’s full potential, the PS4 can get a lot out of it, but nothing like the PC can.

      9. Unreal 3 is on smartphones too, but does that take away from the amazing graphics it puts out on consoles? Or are you saying that the Wii U will only run Unreal 4 at the same level as a smart phone? No doubt the PS4 will run it better, but you seriously believe it’s going to be the same difference between PS3 and Wii? Crytek says the Wii U runs Cry Engine 3 like butter, and look at how amazing Crysis 3 looks. Some would argue it looks better than that Killzone demo. “Oh, it’s scalable down to smartphones, so the Wii U’s going to be running smartphone level Unreal 4”. Yeah, OK.

        Here’s a possible scenario.
        PC=100% of Unreal 4
        PS4=75% – 80% of Unreal 4
        Wii U = 55% – 60% of Unreal 4
        That’s hardly PS3 vs Wii which was this..
        PS3= 90% – 100% Unreal 3
        Wii = 0% Unreal 3. (technically, it could have, once they put it on smart phones, but was pointless by then)

        Get it?

      10. You don’t know what the Wiiu GPU is. 30% of the logic is still unknown and believed to be a load of fixed function shaders. Digital foundry are just a bunch of sensationalist hit seekers. Nothing more , Nothing less.

        Even though NFSMW will DESTROY the 360 version , they will still probably find one way the 360 version is better – aka – ”WIth the Wiiu version dropping as low as 20FPS” – yeah for one fucking second out 5 minutes.

      11. everyone knows the fucking ballpark the wii u gpu is now, the entire die is being analyzed to hell and back and it is definitely not above the peak performance I listed. it’s a joke, stop sucking nintendo cock and accept it already

        only really nfs mw even looks better is more ram and modern shaders, DriveClub is a LAUNCH game and it slaps that shit around the floor.


        i dont care about a polished port because that game is still the same one I played months ago

      12. Please show me where I said “Wii U will run UE4 at smartphone level” Don’t twist my words you little wanker.

      13. Killzone 3 looks like what I expect from the Wiiu when it’s maxed out , that level of fidelity but at 720p , 30FPS . When he’s shooting that gun , it looks like a glorified PS3 game or a PC game , Nice for sure , but no better than Crysis 3 on a high end pc.

      14. The game is 1080p and 30 fps, not 720p. Dumbass.

        The leap is almost fucking night and day compared to any other console shooter, you have to be visually impaired, or pretending not to notice. And chances are it’s the latter, therefore nobody should (not like anyone ever did) take you seriously in any discussion about graphics.

      15. Can you read ? It is VERY impressive PS4 launch graphics to be sure. Instead of the powerfull Ps3 being able to do that at 1080p 30/60FPS , I expect Metroid prime Wiiu for example to look graphically very similar to that Killzone footage but 720p 30/60FPS.

        The PS4 looks ace and there is a noticable little leap. It’s not the huge leap everyone was hoping for not at all. And it’s pretty much impossible for it to leave the Wiiu in the dust , sure it will look a lot better , but only nerdy gamers will pick up on it.

      16. I’m not too excited for the next Killzone because I’m not that interested in first-person shooters. The game does look really nice, but I pretty much knew this game was going to show off high quality graphics.

      17. It may look good in terms of things like ART STYLE and DETAIL,but it”s still inferior in the hardware sense.

      18. What’s that supposed to mean? The mere fact that Wii U can produce something that looks better that the Killzone footage, on supposedly weaker hardware, makes the Wii u more impressive than the PS4 in that regard.

      19. What do you mean by better? People have preferences on how things look. Opinions are not right or wrong. In the hardware sense, Wii U is still inferior, at least that’s how I look at it.

      20. That’s what I was saying. If the Wii U has inferior hardware than the PS4, but is still capable of creating games that look better than games on the PS4, that shows that the gap between the 2 is not as big as we think.

        We may have a gen where all 3 platforms are capable of running all multiplats and exclusives will determine who is the best. If that turns out to be the case, then Nintendo will win imo.

      21. Looks better, but i wouldnt say way better. Although with the vast locale of the killzone demo vs the inclosed environment of the zelda demo i think it could be way better. I dont care about comparisons anyways because im a fan of both so i win regardless.

      22. I’m a fan of both too. But I’m not a fan of people making up crap to suit there liking. Killzone demo is better than the Zelda demo. That’s what I was getting at :P Kudo’s to you though, we need more people like you on this site, sensible and liking all companies.

      23. I doubt we would have as much fun if everybody was sensible and liked all companies! ;)

      24. Haha true :P But it would be nice if at least the perverted stuff was gotten rid of :P

      25. That Zelda demo was 720p, 30fps, had no AA whatsoever

        looked very, very current gen. It’s a pity they’re being this idiotic.

      26. Apples and oranges comparison. Killzone 3 gameplay (firing the gun) looked like a glorified PS3 game. that’s it. Zelda tech demo the character model , artstyle is Jaw dropping .
        Obviously link isn’t flying through a big city in realtime gameplay lol.

        Apples and oranges. PS4 is more powerfull than Wiiu no doubt. But Nintendo will create BEAUTIFULL games for Wiiu that make people say ”hang on a second that looks as good if not better than some of these 720 and ps4 games” Mark my Words.

        I’m confident in saying that after seeing Killzone PS3.5 gameplay :)

      27. lol dude go on any forum and spout your bullshit claiming wii u has games on par with the demos shown, you’ll be laughed off the fucking site

        don’t even kid yourself, it’s embarrassing you guys even try to pull that horseshit.

      28. nobody is talking about the pc

        your reading comprehension is worse than that of kindergartners

      29. also “shit compared to pc”

        shit compared to $800-$1,000 rigs *built from the ground up*, maybe. you will not get a pc that performs on the same level at whatever price this console launches at without upgrading an existing build

        8GB GDDR5 with 176GB/s bandwidth

        i’ll let that sink in for you

      30. The thing is though imo, for $800-$1000 you’re getting much more than a gaming rig. Ex: Getting a PS4 for $350(approx) and a PC for around $600. If you get a gaming rig instead you’ll get a PC that is both better than PS4 (specs wise) and your $600 PC for about the same price as those put together($950). The thing people seem to forget is that an expensive gaming rig is just not for gaming but more than that.

      31. Prediction 60 dollar difference on multiplats between the u and the others regardless what that means is I would only pay 60 bucks for the difference the u is more 8 th gen than the others imo wait for the Nintendo family the 8th gen is the best already I think every gamer will be satisfied this gen

    4. Very impressed. Only negatives were:

      No info on RRD and if physical distribution was still a thing.
      Price would’ve been nice but not necessary, yet.
      No Metal Gear, Final Fantasy or The Last Guardian :(

      1. physical distribution isn’t going anywhere, that 6x bluray drive revealed in press release specs isn’t there for show

    5. Destiny was the only highlight for me. Just seeing it I mean. As for the extra shit PS4 players get on Destiny being BS, I wasnt pleased with anything shown.

    1. Well, the obvious plan would be to put a map on the middle of the gamepad screen with some hotkeys down the sides for quick access to some of the phone hacking functions.

      Which I think would work really really well.

      We’ll have to see what they do though.

      1. Yeah, I’m really hoping it’s a little more than that, because that can get pretty old if every game features the same thing – inventory/menu/map.

        *Here’s hoping* Depending on what they do with the gamepad, I may get the game for Wii U. If it’s nothing too good, after seeing the PS4 gameplay and features, I might go with that version.

      2. Yea, I am a bit worried that every game (especially multi platform ones) will relegate the gamepad screen to map/inventory. But sometimes that’s going to be the best use for it.

        In a game like this, I think having hotkeys for the phones hacking functions will be much better than bringing up a radial menu as shown in the videos so far.

        Maybe you could use it to hack cctv or something? So if you’re trying to sneak into a building, you can hack the cctv cameras inside, and see what the cctv sees displayed on the gamepad screen, while you have your normal view on the tv, and you can work with both of them together to avoid the cameras. That could be one cool use.

    2. Yeah me too. When they first announced this at E3 last year I thought it would be a perfect fit for the Wii U. It wouldn’t have to contain (dare I even use the overused word) “gimmicks” just controls that would feel natural on Wii U which would be a lot for a game such as Watch Dogs. Hopefully Ubisoft does not do a lazy port with this game.

    1. Yup. 360, PS3. And the Next Gen consoles, PS4 and Wii U. The next Microsoft console is most likely getting it as well.

    1. That dualshock 4 will still feel like a ps1 use the move station fans it’s hd control looks like the u will be the tvless triple threat controller system ps4 and the box 3 will only make the u look better imo it’s just more advanced

      1. Tonight at sony’s press conference, they revealed this and tbh it seemed to be the only good game shown the entire 2 hours, and as expected its coming to wii U now :D

      2. The whole conference was amazing and many other would agree. SOny is doing everything right in my books.

      3. For me the best game of the show was the platformer cause killzone looked apart of graphics generic has Hell.

      4. Killzone looked in amazing in every aspect. Bungie seems to have gone into partnership with Sony just like Ubisoft did with extra content. Blizzard is starting to move to consoles now, and so much more! And this was just the initial announcement! And the strong inclusion of Gakai was pretty cool too! :D

      5. Meh, Killzone was fine, the whole pulling the gun forward to make a sniper was awesome, but wasnt really amazing, just flashy. I have faith in Guerrilla, Killzone is a great FPS game, very forward thinking and great controls, movement, game feel, the demo just didnt blow me away, didnt look THAT much better than 3 either, definitely larger, but not insanely better, i was more impressed few seconds of Destiny footage.

      6. Remember, KZ 3 came 5 years into the PS3’s life. Shadow Fall showed pre-alpha footage and is a launch title for the system. I think that bodes well for its potential graphically over the years. I thought the gameplay graphics looked pretty good.

        Still, I’m looking forward to E3 for a more in-depth look at the system and its games.

      7. I agree I saw it and the animation was kinda glitchy and jittery. When the guy welcomes you his walk is weird. I saw the explosion and then said OK another shooter with pretty graphics. But I guess that’s supposed to be what shooters do. I am waiting for the next 3d mario because I want to see how Nintendo does 3d games in HD.

      8. Honestly, that conference was boring…
        Social this, social that… Killzone Shadowfall, Destiny, and Watchdogs stood out though
        They didn’t even show the console lol

      9. Nintendo fanboys are by far the biggest perverts I have ever seen. How embarrassing for this site.

      10. You must not have seen the huge porn explosion by the X-Bots and Sonydrones over on Gaia a few days back.
        Made this place look tame by comparison, and all of the innuendo was pointed right at the Wii U.
        Scary part is, it was all a carry-over from a comment made, from what I can tell, by one of the anti-Nintendo trolls on this site.
        Thread got shut down and deleted after about 50 replies so it didn’t last long, but it was bad, man. REAL bad.

      11. I don’t really search many sites/forums. I’m only really on here, ign and joystiq. That’s it.

      12. Every multiplat on the u will expose the ps4 and box3 just like the kindle fire hd did to the iPad

    1. I think Ubisoft is trying to make us cool down after the legends announcement. Their eshop sale, exclusive demo, now this game. I think Ubisoft is nice, i may get zombiU or AC3 during the eshop sale :D

      1. I own both and they are great. Of the two, AC3 is better, imo. Single player is huge and satisfying. Only issue is that people are rarely online to play multiplayer with. I would recommend both if you can afford it.

    2. two completely different games that may appeal to different tastes, so your comment is hardly fair

  2. I don’t care if this game looks better on the PS4. it was meant be played on the Wii U. I’m not even saying this as a fanboy, Sony impressed me tonight.

  3. ps4 news was not that exciting to me jus saying i was expecting to be blow meh oh and i do own a ps3 and a wii u

    1. I think your expectations were very unrealistic. No major website was even hyping it that hard, and they were certainly hyping it well anyway.

  4. Yea too bad they didn’t even show it. I guess at E3 they will. I’m sorry but Sony didn’t bring next gen to me (Besides Graphics, even though I don’t care too much about it) in this conference (Besides Graphics, even though I don’t care too much about it)…
    Their conference was soooo overhyped… these are only better looking games, these games aren’t better that way, its still the same mechanics… The Only Game I was Really interested in was Infamous: Second Sun(I love infamous & Sucker Punch in general), It Looks Like They won’t dissappoint that game. Killzone,However, was Pretty much the Exact same thing Except Better Graphics. Nothing New, Just more Random Shooting Violence Which I personally am not Fond of. I hope they Show better at E3 Though. :/

    1. What about the social interactions? Sharing, video chat, watching others play, those seem like pretty nice things to me.

  5. OK, I have to comment on the PS4.
    Yay for Sony, sinking their last dollar into a console with kick-ass horse-power, but when I saw the new remote… Lmao, it’s sooooo funny, it’s like a 1/3 WiiU controller.

    No longer worried about:
    A.) They will not be able to compete with Miiverse.
    B.) The WiiU controller is vastly superior.

    However, as expected, they’ve got a fucking big engine under the hood. So that will be the big selling point. It’s on-par with TODAY’s PC’s, so The PC will out run it in 1-2 years, but WiiU will be like the Hero of Punch-Out. Small, hometown hero.

    1. While i like what i saw of the ps4 nothing show has changed mi mind of not getting a wiiu and the reason is that what i saw was a new paint job.

    2. I definitely got a Wii U vibe from the conference. Of course the graphics will be one day much more powerful than the Wii U’s (it takes a while for devs to get used to the power of the machine) but I think Sony did not really innovate too much with the PS4. It has some great features but just not what I’m looking for right now. What I’m worried about is if Wii U is going to be left out again by third party developers. Reggie promise that wouldn’t happen but I’m beginning to wonder…..

  6. Gameplay- especially the parkour part, reminded me a lot of Mirror’s Edge, so that was awesome. Might get the game.

    Also, Ubisoft’s PR might be VERY stupid, but I think I’ll have to forgive them for the Rayman Legends delay. Afterall, it wasn’t the developer’s fault, and not buying the game wouldn’t be fair for them.
    With that said, I’ll probably buy Rayman Legends along with GTA V and Windwaker HD by Fall. …I should probably get a job first.

  7. i think the guy in this game looks a bit dodgy, he looks like the sort that will hide in a dark alleyway or the sort to stalk or kidnap a person

  8. Don’t know how anyone is impressed. All the Ps4 is, is a more powerful Ps3, with stolen ideas from other companies. No real innovations as usual. The conference was so boring had to turn it off after 30 or so minutes. Oh wow they made it more powerful. It will have better graphics, so what. You people are what’s wrong with gaming these days. All about graphics. How sad.

    1. Except it really isnt, you dumb fuck.

      The gaming social integration can be seen as “stolen” from WiiU, but nothing else is at all, and party chat, which is already on the Vita.

      Ps3 has been doing off screen play since the Vita release, no company has the share system, or live stream and community followings as deep, or turned off downloads, automatic downloads for games you probably want that it downloads for you, and its upto you to unlock it and buy it, cloud gaming trials, mid download play so you dont have to wait for it to fully download. And then on top of that, you have the fastest network speed on any gaming system, a console designed solely around and by and for developers for them to be creative.

      Bit more than just “fancy graphics”.

      1. IF wiiU can be like the next Wii, Nintendo can consider themselves lucky, and Be sure their next console has the horsepower to drive their competition back.

        As it stands, Nintendo will be luck to have WiiU be the next Wii.

        I am a Nintendo Fanboy all the way, and If I can count on nintendo HD exclusives, I’ll be happy.

        Maybe they won’t include “Wii” in the bext console’s launch….

      2. Just a note, I didn’t actually mean what I said, I was just being a prick to the guy above me. Nintendo really do need to start rolling out the big guns though. They need Smash bros stat.

      3. No, it’s not you stupid cunt, fuck off to fanboy land.
        “Oh Nintendo is perfect, everyone else sucks, who needs graphics”
        You’re retarded

      4. This site really does need more people like you Dragon. Woofer was spot on with that.

      5. It’s just fucking ridiculous.

        I’d be lying if i said Nintendo didnt make my favourite games ever, the only game i feel trumps Zelda, Mario and Metroid is Shadow of the Colossus, but i’m thankful that i own Nintendo and Sony products. Microsoft dont have anything special, Halo and the rest are just old, and boring, nothing new and outstanding, its stupid that people argue about consoles but its just pityful that they let their stupid ideals get in the way of them playing all the games Sony offers, and multiplats…

      6. I wish for a world where everyone respected each console manufacturer. I like all, but fanboys in general give me the shits.

      7. That’s a pretty big wish to make friend; although I can’t say that I don’t do the same xD

      8. While you wish for a world that repect console manufacturers i prefer 1 that repect the opinions of people on there own turf.

      9. Why should we? When your opinion is, “Nintendo da the best! They can do no wrong. Sony & Microsoft suck.”

      10. agreed. except shadow man. beautiful, great game and it’s deffinitly opinion and i respect that. but zelda will always be my favorite what they did with what they had is incredible from fishing to dungeons. i have no doubt the next big zelda will trump this graphics fight. from what i hear this hd zelda is gonna be massive, i hear hyrule field is the size of one dungeon.totally respect your opinion though man.

      11. Minus the swearing though, you can make a devastatingly powerful point in a very succinct way without resorting to using a plethora of profanities.

      12. dude ps4 graphics aren’t that great. again i say if you want graphics go pc. sorry man the ps4 is still underpowered compared to a pc. so compare graphics to that, you’ll always lose. gameplay is what matters. you can have the best graphics ever but if the game sucks no one will buy did we ever survive without graphics ? oh wait some of the best games ever are still medicore to poor graphics i promise you

      13. I don’t know, did they? All I’m saying is Rey Hardy would think they’re gods IF they ever did it.

      14. Except the way Sony is using it is ingenious.
        Cloud streaming demos is amazing, dont have to download trials and demos, and waiting for them, to find i wont enjoy them and just delete it straight after, cloud demos and playing the game as its downloading is great.
        Im fully against fully cloud gaming, its not good for the consumer, but demos? Hell yeah

      15. Wow, only need to spend $250 on top of $400 (or more, I doubt the PS4 will cost that) to do what the Wii U can do for $300, and the Wii U can run the same graphics engines (like Unreal 4) shown for use on those PS4 games. And the Sony fanboys said the Gamepad was an expensive controller…

      16. Wii U running UE4 will not be on the same level as the PS4. PS4 will be better easily in that regards. Gaming is an expensive hobby, I thought everyone knew that already?

    2. Graphics actually allow different aspects of gameplay to emerge, like reading character’s more detailed faces to read emotion, or the physics of a blown boulder.

      1. New controllers enhance the games just as much as graphics do and the u provides both every controller type and beautiful visuals it should be a great war

    3. There isn’t anything wrong with having good graphics, it enhances the experience. But you are right about it not being the only thing that matters.

      1. Every aspect is just as important as each other. A perfect balance is what is needed.

    4. Stop.
      Just, stop.
      I may not have been impressed with the system’s focus on tech, either, but not even I go so far as to unjustly downplay it like you’re doing.
      Innovation in gameplay is the realm of Nintendo and specific third parties, while Sony’s is the realm of tech leaps. We’ve seen this play out and we know what to expect.
      You shouldn’t be turning Sony supporters into targets for your insults over this.
      If graphics is what they like, if that’s what impresses them, let them celebrate.
      Don’t descend to the level of the trolls that signed up to this site to bash fans of the Wii U when IT released.[You know who you are]
      Be above that.

  9. Sony conference demo totally changed by mind on Watch Dogs, looks awesome.
    Its almost like you’re a hacker/vigilante, which is awesome.

      1. Nintendo, obviously.

        The Sony/Microsoft/PC ones are always the same couple of people anyway.

      2. Ah right, yeah, it’s alright that some people aren’t fans (they’re the ones who usually justify why) But yes, damage control will be strong over the next few days from the fanboys.

      3. There is plenty of damage control. You seem to be one of few that actually expresses concern maturely and not fanboyish like. kudos to you good sir!

      4. I know -.-

        I just hope my brother doesnt buy a 720, he had a 360 this gen, would prefer if he got a ps4 for multiplayer and stuff.

      5. The thing that can save Microsoft is to create a stronger console the the ps4 and give xbox live for free.

      6. Why would that be worth anything? Oh an Xbox thats designed the way it shouldve been in the first place. PS4 is going to have the fastest online speeds ever done on a console, and party chat, and PS+…where does MS because relevant?

      7. They have never been but if they want a chance they need to fix the things that people hate about them.

      8. The hardcore fanboys on here continually said PS4 will never exist, the graphical leap will be minute, and that the Wii U will basically be superior. Now they have been proven wrong, the true fanboys are coming out and starting to say “OMG Sony copied this” etc etc etc

        Are you by any chance that same loser who thinks I’m simple minded because I was impressed by the PS4 announcement? If you are, you’re the only moron buddy, If not, Sorry.

      9. I’m still of the opinion that the graphical “leap” isn’t as large as people made it out to be.
        That old man was still very “uncanny valley” to me.
        My concern is whether or not this emphasis on tech is going to drive up development costs and, as a consequence, push the hobby of video games into rich man territory for the average consumer.
        It’s already pretty stressful on my wallet to shell out nearly 70 bucks for a single new game, but if the PS4 takes out used games, goes all digital, or makes its price tag for stuff higher due to dev costs, I won’t be able to justify getting one any more.
        Which would be a huge shame, since I want to play that new Infamous.

      10. See, why can’t people be like you. You actually express your concerns like gamers should. Maturely.

      11. Speak for yourself, Rey Hardy. Their are plenty of mature gamers, of course you will never be one of them.

      12. he does raise great points i would love a ps4 for games like infamous : second son and posible uncharted 4 but price is important i have too many bills to pay a ton like i did for a launch 60 gig ps3 and mgs4 for 460? i deffintly got ripped off looking back on it. they need a good price point and more games. uncanny valley is a huge problem its a very big turn off to the eyes.I say they make a fair price, focus on gameplay not just graphics,sell games at the price they are now and i will probably buy one.

      13. Absolutely nothing required for “damage control” from Nintendo fans anyways we will see what the next xbox brings. WiiU can handle any of those games shown easily. The ps4 controller looks very awkward and “last gen”(not looking forward to it). Imo: it will be the Sony fanboys that will need to do some “damage control”. I will buy one regardless of the controller but cmon that thing looks ugly as sin.

      14. SO why have people already accused Sony of ripping of miiverse? Hmmm? SOundsa like typical damage control to me.

      15. Sony is perceived as copy cats by many, this “ripping off Miiverse” thing(true or not) is just ammo they use to attack Sony fanboys in this unending fanboy battle royal, that’s all it is and has nothing to do with damage control.

      16. Well if sony copied Miiverse, Miiverse copied facebook and twitter, and every other social netwrking site that existed before it, heck even playstation had it’s own blog site. NINTENDO DIDN’T INVENT OR INNOVATE ANY GOD DAMN SOCIAL NETWORK.

      17. How cute, you just assume I’m a Nintendo Fanboy. I don’t even own a Wii U, so there. Jesus, some of you are just so retarded.

      18. You’re a Anon, guess what? I have no fucking idea who you are, so how i pre judge you?

        The simple fact is, no sane person watched that conference and though, “DUH, JUSST GRAFFIX” thats retarded.

      19. Seriously even the graphics aren’t that much of a big leap .. But more interesting is that game engine from capcom … And I really advice anyone bashing the controller to try it before judging .. Also the share button looks like a pretty good idea

    1. The Sony Conference was amazing. Can’t wait for E3 now. Big guns from Sony, Nintendo and more than likely Microsoft. This year for gaming will be amazing.

      1. Because trying to defend something against a troll is quite pointless. I tend to prefer not to feed them.

      2. E3 will be amazing. Neither Sony or Nintendo can afford to screw up, so I hope they both bring their “A” game.

      1. Or because it was just announced? Was the Wii U price given at it’s announcement? No it wasn’t.

    2. toor far too fast. wouldn’t go that far.wait a couple years but you are probably offense but so far they have games and controller but no system. its to early to say this is the best console

  10. Obviously, I would be better off talking to a brick wall. It would have the same knowledge and understanding as you seem to have.

  11. Remember when Nintendo talked about a possible 3rd platform?. Or when they showcased that holographic technology or even how the gamepad features NFC?. What I think is that maybe they’re planning something big for E3 that has to do with these. Think about it..and on top of that, there’s that special connector on the Wii U gamepad. Anyways, If I’m not correct, I have a couple new concepts for Nintendo.

    1. Yes, it is fantastic news. Watchdogs announced for WiiU kinda lessons the blow to WiiU gamers thinking about GTA V possibly not coming to thier console.

      1. GTA needs to be a lot better than it has been in recreant years for me to even think about getting the game. GTA4 was not that good

  12. So all in all…. E3 is gonna tear shit up this year. Wii U/PS4 with the games and Next Xbox with the unveiling. This will truly be an interesting generation indeed

    This is a comment from a user named King.K.Rool. I’m posting it because it’s a great comment

    “In the end Graphics are always outdated, no matter what.

    I’ll have every console. “Just played some Fallout 3 on ps3 earlier today”.

    But I stick with Nintendo if I just want fun, that is not dedicated to Graphics and become stale later.

    Not bashing consoles, but when a company puts graphics and “whoa look at this” before just pure fun, it does not thrive.

    Look at Smash bros Brawl, and even Melee. Pure hardcore fun, that even casual can enjoy.

    In 4-5 years even the Ps4 will look dated to computers.

    Hell, I still play Banjo-Kazooie every now and then since there is no game like it.

    Or Conkers Bad Fur Day. I adore Final Fantasy 7 to this day.

    Downvote me fanboy’s, but you need creative direction, not just a power house.”

  13. I have just read the ps4 specs and I was like … Wow .. Does this mean the wii u gonna be treated the same as the wii ?? I mean seriously .. The ps4 specs are way ahead of the wii u , I just can’t afford two consoles ,, I really like nintendo exclusives but on this rate in the future the ps4 will get a lot of games while the wii u will get few ,, what the hell should I chooses ????

    1. Chose what ever you want is your fucking money has long that you dont come bashing us and our descitions.

      1. Dude I will never bash anyone even if they like the virtual boy thing .. I am not from that kind of people

    2. Smash Bros and the rest of Nintendos games finally going HD or slightly improved graphics from same old same old like Killzone…yah tough choice.

      Smash Bros Universe and Retro Studios game will be the 2 best games in the 8th generation PERIOD.

      1. Coming from the guy who said PS4 won’t exist because Sony doesn’t have the money. Lol.

      2. Shhhhh the oracle is speaking. We must listen to the great Rey Hardy make his incredible predictions.

    3. It sucks you can only buy one, but if I had to choose for you, I would definitely go with PS4. Then maybe you could buy Wii U later in it’s life when it gets a price drop.

      1. If you can’t get both get the expensive one now than the cheaper one later
        It’ll be easier

    4. Dude, just no. It’s NOT like PS3 vs Wii all over again. Good lord.

      The Wii U can run all the graphics engines that were shown on PS4, INCLUDING Unreal Engine 4. That engine from Capcom, is just like the FOX engine from Konami. The Wii U is fully capable of running all the newest graphics engines, yes, the same ones used in the PS4 game demos. No Wii U game yet, has used them, most Wii u games so far have been ports of Unreal 3 graphics level games, or straight 360 ports.

      Killzone 4 could be done on the Wii U, because it can run the graphic engine used to make that. Gears of war couldn’t be done on Wii, because Wii couldn’t run Unreal Engine 3. It’s not “way ahead” it’s got more ram and a different architecture, which means developers will have more to work with, but that doesn’t put it in a whole different league as the Wii U. Stop panicking. You’ll see similar graphics coming out of the Wii U at E3

      1. so show us videos of the Wii U running UE4 at those settings then

        show us the Luminous engine from square enix

        show me proof the Wii U can run KZ:SF

        no at all of these? okay then

        wii u is absolute garbage spec-wise in comparison, it’s not even funny

      2. As for u aeolus fuck u . As for the other guy , I am not worrying about the specs I just worry about the third party support for the wii u because they might abandon the wii u because of the difference in horse power, I could care less about graphics

      3. Show us proof the Wii can’t run UE4 close to those settings
        Show me Luminous Engine not able to run on Wii U
        Show me proof Wii U can’t run KZ:SF
        No to all of these?

        Nobody said it could run that stuff as well as PS4. The fact that it can, means it’s in the same class as PS4, where the Wii couldn’t run UE3, and PS3/360 used it as a staple. UE3 at max vs medium – high settings isn’t a HUGE difference. Ditto with UE4.

        It’s CPU/GPGPU structure isn’t as shitty as you are making it out to be. Get off Sony’s tit.

      4. I don’t have to show you shit when none of it exists to begin with. There’s a very good reason for that if you have the ability to put your brain to use, but it seems to corroded for you to do that.

        I don’t care if it can “run” the fucking engines, if it looks like shit it doesn’t mean JACK SHIT.

        good day

    1. After that Sony conference, I’m inclined to agree. If MS’s is even half as good, Nintendo is in deep, deep trouble. Because song has what counts: horsepower and tons of good third-party games and first party games as well.

      If MS does the same, Nintendo’s console is doomed (from a core gamer standpoint anyway; it’ll limp along via Nintendo fanboys like the Wii did, but won’t have the casual audience help that the Wii did).

      1. I will be very surprised if Wii U ever surpass 20 million sold. The Wii U lacks many features of 7th gen consoles (seriously having to pause the game to see if a friend comes online -_-)
        not to mention the upcoming consoles from MS and Sony . The game lineup is a joke. No third-party support and the only good exclusive I’ve senn thus far is “X” and that game won’t be out for a while.

      2. You are both wrong. Seriously, you all see a small handful of next gen games, and so far have only seen lazy ports of 360 games (NFS MW withstanding) on the Wii U and you seriously think the graphics gap is the same now, as was with PS3 vs Wii? Unreal 4 announced for PS4. Probably the most powerful graphics engine out there. The Wii U is capable of running it. Along with Cry Engine 3, Frostbite 2, Unity 4, FOX Engine, the new one from Capcom…. they are all about on par with eachother, and will be the standard for graphics on PS4/720 and yes, the Wii U. Ya, Bayonetta 2, Wonderful 101, Watch Dogs, Project CARS, Smash Bros, Zelda, whatever Retro is working on, and all the other games that Nintendo is saving for E3 to announce, are jokes. You guys are so far off, it’s almost funny.

      3. wii u buyer’s remorse and obviously an idiot

        nobody gives a fuck about the wii u anymore. simple truth, the industry is hyped for PS4/720, not fucking Wii U

      4. I wonder if you’ll be here when mediocre sales for both these new consoles become evident

      5. Wow, so now you know me? Buyer’s remorse and an idiot? Don’t you have a job? Plenty of people are excited about Wii U, but since you hate it, for no good reason whatsoever, except some stupid bias and how it’s so “weak” and “childish” yet, I’m sure you’re hyped for LBP 3 or whatever. Nobody gives a fuck about you and your pathetic life. I’ll be playing all 3 new consoles and on PC, but you’ll have to beg your mom to buy you the PS4 and Vita, spending probably $800 to copy the Wii U experience with a little higher settings on your Unreal 4 games.

  14. after the announcements of PS4 and WiiU’s software lineup, I completely forgot about Microsoft, yeah they might as well drop out

    1. MS has tons coming out. The Halo trilogy alone will survive that system; it’s what MADE XBOX1, and it’s what got the 360 through it’s launch (Halo 3). Plus, their other exclusive franchises have been silent for years. They’ll have plenty. You may not like them, but tons, and TONS of people do. Hence why XBOX 360 outsold PS3 in every possible way, hardware AND software wise. And despite most core gamers disgust for it, Kinect is doing VERY well, especially compared to the failed Move.

      That being said, I too am impressed with Sony’s presentation. I’m still not impressed at ALL with anything Nintendo is doing, save for Wind Waker HD and a new Zelda… but the new Zelda could go tits up if any of their recent Wii U games are any indication…

      1. I agree with you except with the Nintendo part, they have been working really hard to support third party devs

      2. Thought the ps3 surpassed the 360.oh wait, that’s units shipped, 1 mill over last I checked. But that likely means sales aren’t far behind.

      3. Truthfully, I expected Sony to come swinging out the gate as I do Microsoft. Why? This year Sony and perhaps Microsoft will have to difficult task of juggling new hardware, existing hardware, and software for both. While Nintendo has the luxury of focusing on nothing but software, which I expect will be top notch and plentiful!

  15. Yeah, but it’s also been confirmed today for the PS4, which looks absolutely jaw dropping and I doubt it will run as smoothly or look as gorgeous of Wii U (maybe not even XBOX 720; depends what specs the console comes with).

    But with the confirmed specs of PS4, there is NO WAY Watch Dogs will look as good on Wii U unless they designed it for the least powerful system and don’t make use of any of the extra horsepower on the other consoles.

    I doubt that’s the case. I’m sure what will happen is what happened with CoD last gen: developed for more powerful consoles, and then gimped for the weaker ones.

    Doesn’t mean Wii U’s version will suck, but I can promise you it won’t run at 1080p @ 60fps. Not with anything CLOSE to those visuals.

    1. I liked how Sony stated their “enhanced GPU” was I the only one thinking that’s just the GPGPU? well it’s kinda funny XD

    2. The engines used will likely be very easily scalable to other specifications, so I doubt it will lose enough in visuals for it to be a huge detriment to the Wii U version.

      1. Just stay away, no one wants you here. Why are you even here in the first place? You obviously hate Nintendo. I don’t like pop music, bu that doesn’t mean I’ll go onto forums for it and complain, I’ll just stay away if it doesn’t interest me. Do you have too much free time or something? Don’t you have work/school to attend?

    3. Saw the PS4, I don’t really see a huge leap in graphics, but its features are really nice, watching other people play and such. Though I do not get what they mean with “buying games that the PS4 thinks you may want”

    4. Respectfully, I don’t think that was actual gameplay footage. I think it was a tech demo. However, while I think the PS4 will have some serious horsepower, in all fairness, we still don’t know how strong the Wii U is. We have yet to see a truly next gen title running on it. This is why I’m excited for E3, because I think we will get our 1st look.

  16. PS4 PS4 PS4
    Now that’s out of the way
    This is great for the Wii U
    It’s finally getting more third party support
    Now Ubisoft, I’m still pissed about Rayman Legends so don’t think all of us are over it yet

  17. OK, everyone is now starting to show their true colors about this whole topic about graphics. I’m not going to say that graphics are obsolete, no. However, I will say that graphics don’t really sell a game for me; I always look at how the game is going to play, it’s creativity, story, and the amount of fun I would have with the game. The PS4 is a great system and I will probably get one at some point in time, but because of the type of games it will provide, not how powerful the system is going to be.

    Seriously, if it was all about graphics in gaming, developers would just make the game play itself and we would just be their watching it. I get to have my fun time by playing games like the Sly Cooper series, Jak and Daxter, Mario games, Zelda games, Infamous series, God of War series, L.A. Noire, Grand Theft Auto series, Metroid series, Halo series, Final Fantasy series, and so many other games that I won’t fit all in here. My point is that a game, for me, was never about the graphics, to an extant, but always about the game itself so I can enjoy the game from beginning to end. Sorry for making this post so long.

      1. Well, from all the comments I’m reading, You guys seem to giving more of a shit about the graphics between the Wii U and PS4. I’m not saying that’s all you people care about, but from all the comments, it sure doesn’t feel that way.

  18. Very good news considering all the hype the game is getting and how the game would work great on the Wii U. The more third party support the better.

  19. I’ll need to see Wii U gameplay first, but with proper Gamepad implementation, I will definitely choose the Wii U version over any other. The bump in visuals the PS4 will have won’t mean anything to this game if the Wii U version has the superior gameplay and UI.

  20. Wonder how many 3rd party games the next NDirect will announce. Watch Dogs looks better to me because of what was shown at the Sony Conference.
    (Segway: 5/5 ;)
    From what I could piece together of what Sony showed, I’m not seeing that ginormous leap trolls were talking about, but the games look great (graphically). Price- that could make or break PS4. The controller looks wierd, but so did the Gamepad at 1st.
    The Capcom Tech Demo was impressive.
    Looks like E3 13 will be the best E3 in years!

    1. Yeah that Nintendo Direct should be interesting. I’m honestly worried now about the state of Wii U getting high quality third party releases at the same time as the PS4 and NeXbox. I heard that the NeXbox will be even more powerful than the PS4 by a significant margin. If that is true than I don’t think that Reggie’s promise of not getting left out of third party games this generation will hold true. I really hate to see the Wii U suffer like this but I fear that it may be in trouble with the PS4 coming out Holiday 2013. I think the Wii U needed an extra holiday season all to itself to gain a better footing but now I fear that it could be crushed by the PS4 and NeXbox. Only time will tell at this point.

      1. With completely scalable engines, if Wii U gets left out, I think it’ll be more because of bias (or poor installed base) than anything else.
        I sincerely doubt a powerhouse system would do better than Wii U, especially if Nintendo does a well-timed price drop.
        BTW, if Nintendo showed the same tech demo 2 years in a row, we’d never hear the end of it… Square! lol

      2. Yeah I knew about UE4 being scalable but some of the engines showed off at the reveal were built specifically for PS4 so I don’t expect us to ever get something like Deep Down. Also you have to remember we have seen quite the gaming biased against Nintendo recently. Take Capcom for example, they are slowly taking away Nintendo’s exclusives and putting them on all platforms so more people can play them (which is fine) but you don’t see them porting Resident Evil, Devil May Cry, Lost Planet, Street Fighter x Tekken, Street Fighter vs. Capcom 3, or Dragon’s Dogma do you? I think there is a little bias going on within Capcom against Nintendo and they are not the only company that is doing that. I do hope that you are right though and I wouldn’t mind a price drop within a year if it saved the Wii U.

      3. Not worried one bit. Nintendo will be fine! Especially since they don’t have to worry about any hardware launches. All they have to do is focus on software this year, while Sony and maybe Microsoft will have to worry about both. Also, Nintendo is reaching out to many developers. This gen, their ready to fight.

      4. Yeah I hope you’re right. I was worried around this time of the 3DS’s life cycle for the handheld and look at it now. I think all it will take is one good price drop and a lot of good quality software and the system will sell well. I don’t know if that will necessarily convince developers like Bungie, Rockstar, Bethesda, Gearbox Software (for Borderlands), and 2K games to develop on the system however.

  21. I also forgive you Ubisoft ^^

    The PS4 eh?…not as “scary” as I thought so no worries, miiverse cloning now?
    Just die Sorny

      1. Fanboyism is general is disgusting and should not be allowed. It’s as bad as trolling.

      2. We should add “Anti-fanboys” to that list of what shouldn’t be allowed in here. There’s at least two specific haters on this site that post like it’s their personal prerogative to downplay absolutely everything about the Wii U, equating it to trash, etc.
        It’s so bad that I can’t even bring myself to consider these biased freaks as fellow gamers. They’ve got past trolling and into the realm of something far more dark and pathetic. More-so than any of the things or people they insult.
        They’re like Trolls on steroids or something, because talk of tech never fails to bring them around, and then they never. shut. up……..

  22. This game looks amazing! It reminds me of Assasins Creed and that is one of my favorite series so…. bring it on! :D

  23. On a side note, I really like the premise of this game. I hope they will one day make a movie of it and perhaps have Wes Bentley play the main character since he kind of looks like him.

  24. Awesome! This’ll be the version I’m getting. I don’t think I’ll be getting a PS4 anytime soon unfortunately…

  25. I just saw the entire conference.
    I haven’t been more bored in recent years than this.
    It’s just a glorified PS3 nothing more, same gameplay mechanics, same fps crap, same car crap, the social stuff has nothing to do with gaming whatsoever other than makign you interact with people more easily.
    The only neat thing in that whole conference was the sculpturing thing which I’m guessing you use the touchpad for.
    Other than that, it’s just a PS3 with beter specs.
    Destiny what a joke.

  26. Someone once told me that this could never come to the Wii U… I hope that person feels really stupid now.

  27. Oh, dear, the PS4 talk… Sony just threw gasoline at the flame wars…

    Anyway, great news. Hopefully Nintendo keeps pushing and doesn’t get left behind with the multiplats.

  28. I’m sure half of these haters wouldn’t exist if Nintendo and Sony combined. What would that make, anyways? Nintendy? Sotendo?
