Watch Dogs Apparently Won’t Be Playable At PAX East

Despite the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of Watch Dogs releasing on May 27th, Ubisoft has revealed that there won’t be a playable demo of the delayed game at this year’s PAX East event. Either development isn’t going as well as hoped, or alternatively the company didn’t think PAX East is a large enough event to create a new demo for. We already heard yesterday that Nintendo won’t be attending the event this year.

Of all the games Ubisoft will be showcasing at the event, Watch Dogs was the only one in which the company failed to mention “hands on” time with the game. So we reached out to the company, and a representative confirmed to us that it is indeed a “hands-off demo.”

    1. PAX East? Smartphones rule the world now, they know everything we say, read, and our location at any given time, do we really think our Tyrants will let us enjoy video games, no, they want us on themselfs (smartphones) and nothing more

    2. I know I’m getting out of topic here and I don’t want to start a riot but have you ever stopped to think that Watch Dogs being delayed on the Wii U might have been Nintendo’s fault/doing. Think about it, Watch Dogs comes out on the others systems on may 27th. Two days so that the attention to the game dies a little, then BAM! Mario Kart 8 attention.

      But lol, Imagine Nintendo calling ubisoft and going all like: ”Hey, can you do us a favor and delay the game. Just tell them that it was to amplify quality or something, they’ll prob suck it up”

      1. It wasn’t Nintendo’s fault though. Ubisoft said so themselves and why would they lie? Stuff like that always makes it out to the public. Companies know better not to create skeletons in the closet.

      9. You remind me of this one kid who I use to attend school with. He always tried to be funny by trying to insult others, and the result was that he always failed at it, making himself look like a major tool bag. And it’s funny how you were talking about Nintendo rehashing old games yet, here you are, rehashing old jokes just to try and make it seem like you’re above others. You need to do something better with your time than trying to belittle others with your childish insults on a fucking Nintendo blog. Lol

    2. That is true. No achievements, and the graphics will likely not be as good. At least it’s still coming.

    Here’s why it’s important:

    Have you ever imagined playing an old classic that you loved and wanted it to be online to show off your skills or even play with friends and family that live to far away to play the game with them. Imagine Super Mario World with online and voice chat, Mario kart with online and voice chat or even super smash bros! from N64 with online multiplayer and voice chat the list can go on and on this can be something that I know will be a hit! We together can make this happen if we show nintendo that we really want this! This would be amazing!

    1. Yea I am still bummed about SM3DW having no online, it amazes me people still make local multiplayer only games.. I haven’t used local multiplayer in probably over 10 years now.

      I am out of the way for everyone I know so online is my only option. I think it is ridiculous a lot of the time we don’t even get that option. Local is great for people without internet but what about for people who can only use their internet? I don’t get it or why people are so reluctant to add online to their games or maybe they are just too cheap.

      Having online adds replay value also, what if you did play locally and you were just bored of playing with the same people over and over or your friends in general were just tired of playing the game but you still want to play with people. I don’t see how that is fair or a good way of going about things.

      2. Hi there, here my point of view on this subject. I am one of those who is glad to not have online features on certain game. Adding online features will increase the cost of the hardware, the cost of the software,fees will have to be pay on monthly basis and then Nintendo will fail even worth cause fan will not pay and want it for free.Don’t take it the wrong way but don’t you have any friends or family to play with? Also Nintendo motto is togetherness where mum, dad, son, daughter and optional grandpa and grandma play together ( i know it stuck if you are alone). For me I like Nintendo cause they are doing something different and online games suck cause you have a lot of people going offline after they lost one or two games (mario kart players I am looking at you)

  8. “Either development isn’t going as well as hoped”

    Uh, wow, talking about spreading lies and gossip? Just because they don’t show a game doesn’t mean its development hasn’t been going as well as hoped. That’s how rumors start and you have no source to say development isn’t going well that’s why they are not showing it.

    They’ve showed it everywhere else, why would suddenly some development problems arrive and not show it?

    That theory is just stupid and a lie, they maybe want to show something new about the game somewhere else and showing it there will take attention off it.

    And I know that development for this game has been very long, but saying a crazy idea why they don’t show it just shows how this site likes to start rumors and they didn’t even say why and to start guessing why with crazy ideas is just not professional journalism. Maybe they don’t have anything new ready to show but that’s way too different to say development isn’t going well, people can take that as very bad, and it’s just this site guessing not something they said.

      actually it’s already a fact that development hasn’t been going as well as hoped.. thus the 6 months delay
