  • Death Dealer

    Not right now, maybe later.
    This could be one of those great games to put on Xbox One GwG soonish MS.

    • ElektroDragon

      Dream on….

    • Daz Green

      I really want to go all digital but I refuse to be ripped off! The prices are not just wrong, they are racist! The fact that an American pays $60/£35 and in the UK we are being forced to pay £60/$101 or to put it another way, 184% of the price in the US! Do you not understand exchange rates Microsoft? $60 does not equal £60 or even €60 for that matter! When we buy digital it means more money for Microsoft and the game publisher (in this case Ubisoft) because there is no manufacturing or shipping costs and as there is no trade in/pre-owned market for digital they don’t have to worry about my game being sold on without them making more money, also and more importantly no retail cost! When I buy a game on disk the store I buy it from makes money, sometimes (but not always) more than 50%! If I can buy a disk copy in a case which had to be physically made and sent to the store for £44 and the store made money from it as well, then why would it be fair to charge £60 for me to download it with the internet I pay for? I see a lot of Americans and Canadians complaining about the price, but I would just like the prices to be fair and equal! I am happy to pay $60 as this is equal to £35, which is a fair price for a digital Xbox One game on launch. I buy a lot of games, I have over 200 games for the Xbox 360 but didn’t start buying digital games off Xbox Live until Microsoft started doing digital game sales which is the only time I have seen good value in digital on Xbox. I know there are many gamers like me in the UK and the rest of the EU that are sick of being ripped off and discriminated against because of where we live! I paid £430/$723 for my Xbox One on launch, it was only $500/£297 in the US and now you want to discriminate again on the games?! Sort it out Microsoft and start treating all gamers equally!!!

  • Satsumo

    Ideally I’d like to buy X1 games as digital download – but at £59.99 the price is shocking. At least for disc copies there is competition and the real world price is lower than the MS store price. Massive turn-off….I’m no longer buying X1 games at launch.
    Judging by experience the price will come down after a few months (even for digital download)….hence waiting. Refusing to be ripped off.

    • Death Dealer

      I’m feeling the same way. Digital prices need to be lower at launch. Especially with GwG becomming the rental model on Xbox One next month, expect more and more people to wait with purchases. The entire industry is devaluing at a massive rate.

      • mcmax3000

        Digital prices on consoles will probably never be lower than retail at launch, at least as long as retail is a big seller, because retail stores will get angry if the consoles are undercutting them digitally, and the console makers need retail stores to sell their systems & accessories.

        • Death Dealer

          Never? No they will be at some point, when retail takes up less than 50% of software sales for example. At that point retail will have no say whatsoever in the matter anymore. Sure they could boycot systems that force their hand, but if there is already enough momentum among consumers to want a certain device then those consumers will find other ways to obtain it and online stores like Amazon will simply profit from that.

          • http://www.kevin-fell.co.uk/ Kevin Fell

            Let’s hope buying digital codes in retail stores at discounted prices is something we’ll start seeing more of. Non sale digital items are way over priced atm.

            It’s irrelevant if MS don’t set or have control over the price, if they cannot compete with retail at launch digital will loose out and they can say goodbye to that all digital vision we’d like a to see at non-rip off prices.

        • kevgallacher

          All they have to do is to sell download codes at retailers like they do with DLC. This would keep everyone happy.

    • http://www.mtlscream.com/ Steve Belisle

      I agree with you too…. in Canada, the games are 69CAN$ in store and the same price digitally. I want to be all digital and try to be as much as possible… but please Microsoft need to lower the price of digital content, just like when we buy a movie or music on iTunes, it’s cheaper than buying the real disk.

      • http://Www.mylifewithgaming.wordpress.com/ Mitchell Hall

        Yeah I’m in Canada too man. isn’t it ridiculous? 69.99 for games? and the same digitally. mind blowing. I mean I still pick up the games on day one because I love games and I love supporting developers I love, but I most definitely will not be going digital anytime soon. I just picked up watch dogs from futureshop and it came with a steel book case as well which is pretty cool. All for the same price as I’d pay if I got it digitally.

  • Pete

    £59.99 digital or £44.00 on disc (Amazon, Tesco or Asda)

    Seriously, this needs addressing!

    • Lloytron

      £35 from Play Asia. Of course that means waiting a few more days to get it, and you can’t trade it afterwards as its the US version – but you can’t trade the £59.99 version either!

  • Jim McPherson

    18 different versions / preorder specials of this game with unique in-game bonuses. X1 digital copy is only the base game.

    Sony has digital preorder and the digital deluxe edition. Microsoft has.. a $15 digital store credit if you buy a disc and let them drive it to you.

    Has Microsoft forgotten that they positioned themselves as the digital console of the future?

    • Death Dealer

      Yes, but that changed when the DRM went away. MS couldn’t guarantee a 1 license per person deal to the publishers anymore (the way Steam does it) and away went the power to do pricing like Steam does with their deals. But don’t worry, the gaming industry will go digital only soon enough and then everybody will have to face the music of DRM just like it did for the music and now progressively for the video entertainment industry.

      • Jim McPherson

        Yeah I was annoyed when we lost price competition on digital copies because the “all copies are digital copies” policy was reversed.

        But I’m positively sickened that PS4 is doing a better job of delivering Microsoft’s vision than the X1 is right now.

        • Death Dealer

          Yes, I agree. MS needs to step up but I’ll wait with further judgment until the next few months with the new GwG have passed. MS can’t wait forever with the dropping of prices, otherwise they’ll see their consumers simply shift towards competing offers. It’s the sad state of affairs the industry is going to as the value of the entire games industry is dropping very fast and MS doesn’t want to partake in it.

      • opaque17

        I like how you pretend to know what prices would have been like had the proposed DRM not “went away.” I bet you’re dead wrong.

        • beardyman3218

          No, hes entirely correct. The only reason steam is so cheap is because of its drm policies, otherwise it would be £60 on steam.

          • opaque17

            No, and no. Steam is not Microsoft. PCs are not consoles. Neither of you haven’t a clue what a game would have cost in the alternate reality where Xbox One was digital-only. And you probably never will.

            Newsflash: Xbox One (and almost every console ever) has DRM.

          • beardyman3218

            Im not the one saying pc are console im giving you a reason as to why steam is cheaper, its drm policies for one and most importantly that fact pc game are hardly sold a retail, there no market to undercut therefore they can price them accordingly. Consoles cannot undercut the retail market because the retail market for console games is huge. If steam didnt lock games to one user they wouldnt be so cheap. Edit: MS original plan wasnt digital only it included drm for retail games just as pc does.

          • opaque17

            Steam is cheaper because publishing to Steam is cheaper and easier. It’s far more simple than this retail conspiracy you’ve concocted.

          • beardyman3218

            There is no conspiracy, think about it logicaly if consoles digital games undercut retail what will happen? The same thing that has happened to pc games, stores wont stock them and game stores without console games are simply going to have to close. The way around this was the drm.

          • opaque17

            I don’t need to “think about it,” I’ve worked for a publisher for years.

          • beardyman3218

            Im only stating what would have to happen for consoles digital games to get cheaper without destroying the retail market.

          • opaque17

            It’s not always technicalities that prevent/cause these discrepancies. :

          • beardyman3218

            I understand that. But Its the publisher thats sets the price not MS not Sony. Wolfenstein was set at £54.99, watch dogs is £59.99. Different publishers different prices. But if there was drm in retail games they would make them cheaper, for publishers its all about protecting their product, making sure its not pirated is one of their main priorities i think thats what MS meant by always online the same way steam does its license checks through an online connection.

          • opaque17

            Sorry, but what you just posted is wild conjecture. PC games have almost always been cheaper, since long before Steam came around. Get your facts straight.

          • beardyman3218

            I know pc have been cheaper im giving you a reason as to why console games are not.

          • opaque17

            Publishers want to sell copies. They don’t set prices as a defensive measure against theft, they set them at a point where they can sell an optimal number of copies with optimal profit. It costs more money to publish on a console than to publish to PC and it may always be that way due to quality control assurances. End of story. End of discussion.

          • beardyman3218

            You clearly havent listen to a word i have said, i never said publishers set the price as a defensive measure i said they set the price lower because drm is the defensive measure. Im going to play my RETAIL copy of watch dogs now.

          • usrev

            no he isn’t you are both wrong. GoG is also cheap but they only sell DRM free games.

          • Guest

            Hahaha, you shot yourself in the foot with this remark. GoG, as its name suggest are OLD games, not brand new games that everybody would like to get their paupermits on for free. The only one clueless here is YOU.

        • Death Dealer

          I like how you pretend to be from a publisher and have a conversation that lead to you removing your account because you failed in your persuasion. You can bet all you like, publishers have a reserved budget that accounts for theft, but that doesn’t mean they should allow it to happen.
          The same thing goes for Curtis Isabel’s remark. The Xbox 360 was a piracy bomb once the DVD firmware got hacked. Of course publishers wuoldn’t drop the prices for games then as MS couldn’t guarantee the 1 license per person. Dream on all you like, the digital future with stricter DRM is inevitable whether you want it or not.

      • montysan

        Let stores sell download codes like 360 arcade games did. Wouldn’t that solve the problem?

        • Death Dealer

          Yes, partly. But that’s because stores have their own inventory they need to clear. They’re essentially competing with themselves on their own stock in that case.

      • usrev

        you really think digital prices would be lower then? you must be clueless… look no further than 360 games and dlc prices. you can buy full retail games for LESS than their dlc costs in store. I remember buying oblivion GOTY edition for $20, the expansion pack alone cost $40 on the marketplace.

  • Korahn

    didn’t even realize there would be a 360 version. Still, I’ll be waiting a few months until I get a next gen console before dropping the cash for this. The game may even be a bit cheaper then.

  • Beano

    No interest in this game right now. I’m going to think on it for a year.

  • Christian Armstrong

    Was gonna get the digital download of this but for £59.99 and no DLC bonuses you can keep it. I’m really trying to go all digital this gen but you are making it really hard when I can buy the special edition version from my local shop for £10 cheaper.

    • http://www.kevin-fell.co.uk/ Kevin Fell

      It’s a shame we need games to go on sale just to align the prices with their retail counterparts which usually include codes for additional content.

      • usrev

        It’s the same way in the US though normally launch day price is the same, but if you know how to look for deal you can find the game for less than $60 easily. I got mine for $48, plus I got a $10 gift card on top of it as well.

  • MrRadiolips

    This game is getting so many bad reviews. Think ill wait to purchase this to see the truth instead of the rumors.

    • http://www.mtlscream.com/ Steve Belisle

      The game is not getting bad reviews… All reviews seems to be around 75%-89%.

      The bad press is from users who never played the game. And it’s so easy to compare a new franchise to GTA5…
      Yeah high expectation from this game and people seems to be pissed at the delayed… But the game js here now and it’s a nice addition to the Xbox One catalogue.

      And most reviews are talking about a 30-40h of game play (and to 100h if u are doing everything in the game). So not bad at all :)

    • beardyman3218

      I dont know what reviews you have seen but i would pay no attention to them, the game is great.

    • WARLORD

      Only bad reviews I have seen are from end users not Critic.

  • Nick King

    All the comments so far are about the price, I also hear it’s not that good looking for a next gen game and isn’t all that good. I’m not risking £59.99 on something I can’t sell if I don’t like it, especially when it’s between £39.99 and £49.99 in any store.
    Even though I said I wasn’t paying £54.99 for Wolfenstein last week I did as I’d already loaded up my account with money. I go and check today and it’s £49.99, that’s within 7 days of release, I’m feeling proper peeved right now.
    This is not going to go away so it’s about time someone came forward and explained the reason for the extortionate pricing.

    • Satsumo

      I hear exactly what you’re saying….which is why even though I’m sticking to digital purchases I will be waiting 3-4 months after most releases before I buy a game as I have seen how much other X1 games I have bought have dived in price.

  • Nick King

    Is it really that bad? Normally when something is as hyped as this it never lives up to expectations.

    • OldSocialist

      It’s just a bit, well, dull, with lots of ideas cherrypicked from other games. For me the sense of a living environment has been more interesting than the gameplay – and that isn’t going to last. I get the feeling this is one I’ll play just to justify the investment.

  • deadbox102

    From what I’m hearing about Watch Dogs I think I’ll wait to play it when comes to GWG.

  • punchl

    Aint no way am spending $59 on this .. The only xbox one game i could pay $59 even $100 for is Killer instinct and thats because of the hard work done by the developers, and the support MS is showing.

  • Steve ‘Cass’ Cassidy

    I want to go all DD but at this price I will wait.

    • http://summified.com/ Ry L

      wait for GWG. It’ll be there eventually I’m sure.

      • CXK

        This is easy to say but after seeing the initial offering of GWG games I worry it will be a while. I’m not complaining, free games are free games. But Arcade-like games better not be all we get, that would be very disappointing.

        • http://summified.com/ Ry L

          You bring up a valid point, though I’m just banking on the X1 GWG offerings to be upped a bit. That based on the whole move to rental type thing (a la PS4), and that there isn’t a whole lot available. It’s not like they have 5 year old arcade titles like they do on 360, ya know? Still, you’re right…wishful thinking…

          • CXK

            I think they’ll be offering better games since you don’t own the games, I’m just not sure how long that will take. I really hope Sony and MS get into an “offerings battle”, each of them pushing to get games in their programs earlier and earlier. I actually thought we wouldn’t see GWG for XB1 until the end of the year so this is already a plus. I still hope they just offer that rental program, I’d pay Gamefly prices if it meant I could actually get any game I wanted whenever I wanted. Even if it was limited to 3-4 games a month.

    • CXK

      I’ve gone all digital but its a tough way to do things. I have two Xbox One’s so it makes more sense for me, I essentially get two copies for the price of one and never need to run all over the house to get discs. The down fall is you can almost not rent these games anywhere (for me at least) and blind buying games at full price without no sale is too risky. I usually will just wait for a price drop or a chance to get the physical, try it, sell it for as close to the amount I paid for it and download it. It’s a real hassle. I hope Microsoft announces a rental program, letting us download the games and play for a set time.

  • Robert Sims

    £60 for a game. It is so much more expensive to be a gamer in the UK Tha most other countries! Its a little annoying but at the same time I still purchase the consoles on day one and buy the games on day one! Hahahahaha….. I am wondering though if amazon can get an app on my xbox one where o get the games digitally from them and maybe it will be a little cheaper???

    • beardyman3218

      It doesnt matter who the distributer is, its the publisher (in this case ubisoft) who sets the price of the game.

      • kevgallacher

        How then can Steam sell it for £39.99 when Ubisoft sell it for £49.99 from their store.

        • beardyman3218

          Ubisoft cut the price because of steams drm. The drm is locked to one owner, removing the pircacy factor. Thats why steam is cheaper and if MS stuck with their original digital plan we would have digital games at the same price of steam or there abouts, also pc games are not really sold in retail game stores anymore so there is not much retail to undercut.

  • beardyman3218

    Whilst MS doesnt set the price for the game (publisher does) its also the same price on psn. MS should be the first to step up and say something to publishers about these digital prices. The publisher should need to justify their pricing to MS and Sony before they can even release the game on their stores.

  • beardyman3218

    The only bad thing about this game is that ubisoft force you to sign up to uplay. If you dont sign up you cant play free roam multiplayer.

    • Gazza!!!

      I wish I could at least sign into Uplay as the Ubisoft servers are down.

      • beardyman3218

        It seems the uplay site is also down.

    • evilfangs .

      Why wouldn’t you sign up for uplay? You get extra bonus in game content for playing Ubisoft games.

      • beardyman3218

        What sort of content? I thought it was just a stat tracking service.

        • evilfangs .

          Sometimes a extra hidden level, sometimes new costumes, or able to hold more gear or do a ability better / for longer. On 360 you could get exclusive dashboards.

          • beardyman3218

            Thanks for the reply. I’ll sign up whenever the service is back up and running.

  • Ryan Davis

    lol at misuse of “lead” instead of “led” in the game’s official description.

  • Daz Green

    • kevgallacher

      Its only £50. We wouldn’t get it for £35 as we have VAT of 20%. That would mean it would equate to about £42. Which is roughly the price most retailers sell. £50 and above is too dear though. The games should be £45 maximum on the store to be a fair price.

      • Daz Green

        Maybe on 360, on Xbox One it’s £60!

        • kevgallacher

          Oops sorry clicked the wrong link.
          Yeah that is ridiculous.

      • Satsumo

        It isn’t ONLY £50 (or even £60 – you’re the first person I know who rounds £59.99 down to £50)….
        I agree they should be £45 max – but even if they competed with disc prices (which are cheaper because of competition) then that would be a step in the right direction.
        There’s about 5-10 great X1 games a year – pay an extra £18 for a digital copy and you’re then looking at £90-180 a year, i.e. likely to be an extra £1000+ over the “10 year lifespan” of the X1.
        It’s a RIP-OFF.

        • kevgallacher

          I clicked the wrong link.
          The one that says check price and availability takes you to the 360 page.

        • montysan

          Totally agree. I want to go digital, and was excited when the launch games were £45… a fair game launch price. Titanfall was £55, and still is, so I’m not going to buy it. The fact that some friends and I complain about this issue has stopped lots of friends from even getting an Xbox, as they were also interested in a digital console, is not good at all. £60 for watch dogs is a joke. Let stores sell digital copies, like the 360 arcade games cards you could buy… problem solved. You could even sell them with a disc that has the download data on to save your broadband… best of both worlds. This is what I think they should have tried… rather than the 24h checkin nonsense.

          • Digiadam

            Err…..the One does not check in every 24 hours. That was removed long ago.

          • montysan

            Yeah, sorry, I didn’t explain myself properly there. I meant they should have tried what I said, rather than trying 24h checkin and failing badly like they did.

      • Daz Green

        They don’t charge VAT on digital content so that’s 20% more they get, that they don’t get if you buy on disk!

    • Nick King

      I agree 100% but it’s falling on deaf ears unfortunately. I suggest everyone hounds both Larry Hryb and Phil Spencer on twitter and all other methods of public communication otherwise nothing will change.

      • Bush

        as long as a few poeple pay the prices they will never change. im coming here to this blog over 7 years or more. even back then people were complaining about the prices and yet they’re still way too high.

        if you want to go digital go to steam, then xbox will get the message.

    • James Jiao

      I don’t think racist is the right term here.

  • Ross Kemp

    Digital with no resale value or pre order DLC at £60 or my choice of buying physical copy at £44 with pre-order bonus DLC = Win for me and a big loss for MS .
    I also went the physical way with Wolfenstein last week and I shall do the same next week with Murdered Soul ( £40 for Limited edition box ) .
    I really wanted to go digital this Gen , but MS…..come on , really .

  • Scott Ferguson

    I’m in the UK and have been told to change your region in system settings to united States because games and xbox’s ain’t region locked then download it for the $ price this should save you money!! Worth a try!!

    • kevgallacher

      How do you pay for them though?
      You would need a credit card from the US.

      • Scott Ferguson

        You can use creditcards from here overseas! I shipped the titanfall collectors edition from America ended up saving £70! Cancelled my order from game!

        • kevgallacher

          But the billing address will be UK.
          Normally the billing address has to be compatible with the region of the account used to purchase the game.
          Buying the physical disk is different as it is linked to an account.

          • Scott Ferguson

            Right like I said I just heard this! Never done it myself I have changed the region on my xbox just to see the price of the American games! Hopefully someone will reply to this who has tried to purchase a game this way! I’m just putting this out there because if it does work then hey money saved!!

          • http://matejgottwald.wordpress.com/ Matěj Gottwald

            You can do it but you need PayPal, you cannot add a card from Europe to US Marketplace. And don’t forget the VAT. But even VAT included the US prices are a little cheaper.

  • John Smith

    Anyone know if Wachdogs on the One has DRM?
    Thanks!

    • kevgallacher

      The disk doesn’t but the download does but it is quite flexible, it is linked to both the console and the account it was bought on. Anyone can use it on the console it was bought on and the account can use it on any console as long as it is online. Technically you could buy it on a friends console with your account and they could use it with their own account, you could go home and use it with your account on your own console but you would need to be online. The game would be tied to both their console and your account if that makes sense.

      • John Smith

        Perfect, thank you.

  • CXK

    Hey MS, please make a rental program! I’d love a chance to try this without paying full price unless I like it. I’m not sure if you can do that legally but I’d personally love to pay an extra monthly fee to try out games digitally. Redbox never has them, Gamefly takes way too long and Blockbuster is gone, we have no options!

    • Does Not Equal

      redbox has started rolling out Xbox One games in a handful of cities (e.g. Chicago, Salt Lake City, L.A.), so it should only be a matter of time.

      • CXK

        Redbox used to offer Xbox One games here, right around launch they had AC4, COD and a sports game but they have since disappeared. I’ve checked machines all over the city since I drive all over for work but never saw them. I don’t know if they didn’t do well here, or they just moved them to another city. I wonder why they don’t just stock the machines? I’d rent like crazy and I’d imagine others would too to avoid blind buys.

        • Does Not Equal

          I called redbox today to check on why Wolfenstein was only going to be offered for PS3 only, and the conversation turned to current-gen releases. I always knew they’d eventually be made available, but I still haven’t seen any where I live. I figure they’ll start full availability in redboxes about the time I leave the country for good.

          • CXK

            Well I’ve been looking for months on the app on my phone and never see any XB1 games so I figured they didnt have them. Checking the website shows Thief was there and I never knew it and the app still doesnt show it. I’ve also noticed I can make some games show up if I select the kiosk I want to use first then browse, its like the app isn’t updated to show new gen games? I can’t figure out the logic lol.

    • Guest

      That’s what Games with Gold will be on the Xbox One, a rental program that you have to keep paying for to play your games. Thank Sony for that and lowering the value of the games industry as a whole even further now that MS has also jumped on that bandwagon. There soon won’t be a AAA industry left to support.

  • ElektroDragon

    Game looks last gen. I am sitting here comparing both the X1 (rental) and PS4 (purchased) versions and they look exactly the same. Same res, same textures, same aliasing. Lowest common denominator at work. But the X1 is choppy with the cutscenes at times while the PS4 has been smooth. Not a big deal though. And EuroGamer confirms 1600×900 on both consoles. Darn it, there was no need to run the PS4 version at 900p except lowest common denominator. The jaggies are hideous. After the amazing 1080p of Assassin’s Creed this is a letdown.

    So for the record, its totally safe to buy the Xbox One version, you won’t be missing a darned thing this time except the “60 minutes additional PS4 content”

    • Spokker

      Eurogamer’s Digital Foundry did not have access to the Xbox One version at the time of it’s Watch Dogs article. They did not do a “face-off.” They only looked at the PS4 version. According to an older article, Xbox One resolution is 792p.

      • ElektroDragon

        And I am telling you there’s no way one is 792p vs 900p, I am comparing pixel by pixel on a 65″ screen from 1 foot away. Looks 900p on both to me, still disappointing. But I have corrected my post because technically you are correct. I just wanted ONE version to be 1080p… doesn’t matter which, although we all know which one was more likely to achieve it. PC master race are laughing at us on this one.

        Time to go actually evaluate the more important aspect: gameplay.

        • Dylan

          Considering the issues with Uplay, I doubt they are laughing today.

          • roozbeh, again

            Oh Ubisoft…

          • beardyman3218

            I dislike the uplay service and was annoyed that in order to play multiplayer free roam you are forced to sign up.

        • ElektroDragon

          Nevermind! It does now look like the X1 version could be 792p after all. Positioning both cameras in the exact same spot, and looking up at a wire lamp, the wires do look smoother on the PS4, less/smaller alias steps, but such a small difference,,,,

          • beardyman3218

            I honestly cannot see a difference between them when playing the game, all this resolution talk is for the pr’s, PlayStation saying it was 1080p before UbiSoft confirmed 900p shows this.

          • GamerResentment

            And also just another reason for Sony and or MS to boast “superior” graphics though it’s never been too big of a difference from what I have seen. Less jaggies, whoopiiiieeeee.. -____-

          • Nick Peck

            Does it really matter? All of this comparing is only killing any excitement / fun you should be having just playing the game. I miss the old days before the internet when you only had 1 mag to tell you what was coming out lol.

            Who cares which version is better, just play it and enjoy it and leave everything else at the door. I think people psych themselves into not having fun because you/they are worrying so much about stupid #’s. No offense of course, but I’m just saying… Have fun with it already!!

    • Guest

      Yep, it’s hilarious, there WAS need to run that PS4 version at 900p30 with LibGCM being so close to the metal versus DX11.2 not being close to that level of performance yet until DX12 is taking over.
      You’re still believing in $0N¥’s lies and overhype that it’s the most powerful run everything at 1080p60 box. Snap out of it boy as you’re throwing your money at a dying company!
      Both consoles are trailing behind the PC in power immensely already. I think I saw someone mention it was expected there should have been 2.5 TFLOPS of power in the new current consoles and that shows in the previous footage of this game very well.
      That’s what you get with AMD and low power architecture. This gen is smallest gen over gen leap since the beginning of the gaming industry.
      DX12 will not magically make every game 1080p either. It will do a lot of performance improvement, apparently a general 30-35%, but it will do the same for PC and that will make the performance gap grow even larger over time, which is where MS also profits with Windows and makes Sony fanboys cry yet another time.
      The idea of an upscaled Xbox One (like a new model with 48MB eSRAM and another identical GPU cluster and then another model with the same increase after it) every couple of years doesn’t look so crazy now. It would truly hold up to the name “Xbox Infinity” had they gone with that name. They have the architecture to do it and IMO they should and keep it all compatible as this “next gen” is a joke so far.

      • Nick Peck

        They funny thing is, is that consoles have never “gone” after the PC… ever. They are a totally different animal for different needs / purposes. Just because they use parts that PC’s do everyone compares them. How close to a super computer was the NES when it came out? Oh right….

        If everyone is so distraught over the 1080p/60fps on consoles and is no longer having fun playing a game, you/they need to find a new hobby or just stick to the PC only and stop crying about everything on every forum. It’s so tired. Enjoy the games or find something else to do.

        I have owned every system, even some duds (Atari jaguar) and still managed to have some fun with them. I used to game on the PC as well, but these days I just don’t care for it. Actually, I just parted my PC out on ebay as I’d rather have the cash back then something sitting there collecting dust.

        Like the games on next gen or not, but I have had a lot of fun since the systems came out, and still am. I play for fun, not for super uber graphics. But to each his own, but one day you guys that complain and worry about worthless stuff will one day learn how unimportant being like that is. One day, hopefully.

        • Death Dealer

          Very true, but I agree with his sentiment about MS upscaling their hardware (MS suggested it themselves and I’m the one that suggested it here a few days ago too) just to shut up those Sony fanboys plagueing the internet without a real life and don’t care about the games themselves as all they do is count pixels and frames. They are the ones that started this “resolutiongate” and are distributing lies that their console is as good as a PC, which in turn makes the PC fans hate Sony because they are fed up with those lies too. There’s already a lot of PC fans with a bar Sony icon out there, perhaps it’s time we start doing that here as well. If MS makes this a multi-tiered compatible hardware cycle then Sony doesn’t stand a chance. Satya Nadella said yesterday that he wants to bring PC and Xbox closer together, then he might as well put his money where his mouth is (to put it bluntly, no disrespect). That means more big console titles coming to the Windows Store after a while and more PC like features on the Xbox One, meaning that development and sideloading environment I sugggested needs to happen fast as well.

    • Guest

      Awww, Out of Order:1887 is only 800p and 30fps too and it doesn’t even have any form of multiplayer either. Don’t cry that Sony lied about “1080p 60fps or give me Death”. That Sony executive yelling that should have been murdered twice by now.

  • Vanstrom

    Oh. People are still excited for this game? I never understood the hype. It looks simple, and like it isn’t really going to be as fun as everyone thought it would be. Ubisoft pushed it off for around 3 years for something that isn’t too revolutionary.

    • ElektroDragon

      It would’ve been revolutionary as a launch title like it was supposed to be. But now? Not so much. It’s almost like every other game copied its ideas but managed to come out first!

      • Liquidfx Xboxdude

        still fun though.

  • http://xxkarzaxx.tumblr.com/ Karza

    You guys need to fix the pricing in Australia.Why would I spend $100 for Watch Dogs on the Xbox Store and use half of my download cap when I can buy it for $64 from Big W and only have to download whatever updates I may need?

  • Zcrisis2

    I’ve been playing this for the last few months now and I’m bored of it, I personally think the game is just like everything else we have already seen/played, it holds nothing new here and after a few hours gameplay it sits on the pile of shame. The hype seems to be more the fact there is nothing else out there and it fills a void that us gamers are missing in games for the next gen just as Titanfall was which I traded in just after a week of release, these games need something new or need to stand out a little bit more.

    • Sanpei

      For the last few months ?

      • Zcrisis2

        beta testing and hands on with the final product.

        • Lem0nadeee

          Yeah, sure.

        • Ross Kemp

          Cool story bro .

    • Zcrisis2

      As a side project I also do work as a Remote QA Tester for VMC Games

  • Michal

    Amazing game, I just love it <3

  • Karsh

    i bought the disc for £34 and could probs trade it in for £21 cash in a few weeks time making its net cost £13 and its £60 on the xbox live store… wtf… seriously…

    xbox live prices should at least match physical copies and if anything should be cheaper.

    • evilfangs .

      Where did you find the game for £34?

      • Karsh

        I preordered it from simplygames’ ebay store; they had a deal for a short period. Tesco also had it for £32 with a £10 off code for a short period of time.

        • evilfangs .

          So now instead of having to just visit simplygames own website I have to troll around on their ebay store to try find the best deal.

          £48 on their website now.

          I’m just going to save that £50 and put it towards my PS4 funds and hopefully get a PS4 watch Dogs bundle.

          • Rupert Oldcorn

            Tesco is £44 at the moment according to a mate of mine that was incensed by digital price.

    • Nick Peck

      Do you realize how impossible it would be for them to “track” every retailer around the world to try and “match” prices? Won’t happen, ever. Once there is a digital download standard set, prices will be the way they are (unless on sale or during a promo).

      • Karsh

        dont need to do much tracking… the game is available for less than £50 almost everywhere…

        • Nick Peck

          And that’s the companies doing the pricing, not MS. MS / Sony / Nintendo don’t monitor what other companies are doing to watch their prices.

          I agree digital pricing needs to be a little cheaper, no argument there, but don’t expect digital price matching.

          • Guerrero Ultimo

            I do not expect digital price matching or even lower digital prices. Of course I will not pay more for digital myself. And although MS does not set the prices they do set their prices. Talking about the games they publish and that are on their digital store. If they charge full price when retail has been $10 to $20 (sometimes more) lower for a month or much longer that tells me they have no plans to lower the digital prices. And that was one of the talking points early on in the digital game when they said digital would be good for the consumer by providing lower prices.

          • Karsh

            I don’t necessarily expect price matching but with the limitations of digital and cheaper costs of distribution and the fact Ms want to push digital… Prices should and could be cheaper than the most expensive physical copy on the high street

      • ElektroDragon

        Not impossible at all. It’s all automated now. Same engines that power Froogle (Google Shopping) and PriceGrabber. A little data mining and they’d know immediately how to match the best retail store prices. They just don’t want to.

  • Liquidfx Xboxdude

    im liking this game a lot. i actually just like to drive around listening to the music and running red lights. wolfentstein was beast as well. thank god for good games again.

    • Liquidfx Xboxdude

      i did the same with gta5, in fact i put in 30 hours and am no where near finishing that game. i just miss the days of riding around smoking back in the day. can’t do that now that i have sort of a life.

      • Michel Van Lingner

        You having a conv with yourself?

  • James Hale Steele

    i like the game so far im just a bit bummed there is no 8 player free roam or co-op modes in the 360 version :l i usually don’t buy a new system till after a year or so because i have bills and what not grown up stuff..

  • AD3N

    the world needs more games with characters called Aden in them. Aiden will do this time though.

  • Beano

    Now that the hype is fading, reality is settling in. Still better than Boredomfall, though

    • Nick Peck

      Yah, because they are so much alike in any way…. :|

  • Pinkeye69

    I would buy digitally to got with my all-digital XBone collection but at £60 GPB – Nope!

    • Ben Wood

      They should supply digital lube for these prices. Absolutely shocking … but expect silence from the MS Hierarchy on it

      • Guest

        Because it’s not MS determining the prices, it’s the publishers. But we can all agree that MS needs to make it clear to them that this is unacceptable.

        • Guerrero Ultimo

          Are MS games cheaper digitally? If not I guess MS is setting their game prices the same. I am positive my $50 Forza 5 was cheaper than digital and that is a MS published game. And Forza 5 is $50 at my local GS and Amazon has it for $49.26. So, MS has some internal work to do before they can really make it clear to them that this is unacceptable.

          • beardyman3218

            Forza is the only game on the store that wasn’t far off its retail price. I think I remember seeing it for £44.99 a day or two after release.

          • Pinkeye69

            Yeah Forza 5 was £45 digitally for the Day One Edition (you got emailed a code for the day one extras). Titanfall was another stupidly high priced game £60 but thanks to xbox rewards I managed to get some money off that otherwise I would not have got that digital.

          • Death Dealer

            Both those games can be had for cheap through eBay digital codes. I got both for about $25 each, which is the price they should be dropping to on the Store after a year or so IMO.

        • Ben Wood

          The publisher maybe setting the price, but they are distributing it via MS’s platform. Microsoft as the platform owner could stop this digital extortion by setting pricing limits, but I’m guessing they take a slice of the money so don’t really care about the consumer at the end

    • Guerrero Ultimo

      Agree with you Pinkeye69. I would not mind going digital but not at full price like that. I just traded a game (infamous SS) for $40 with the bonus. I only paid $48 for it so I was only out $8 and plan to pick it up again for less than $20 or on PSN+ if they put it their. No way I go digital without some incentive. Sure, I have the money but that is not the point. I remember when all the digital talk first started and it was “oh, we can cut out the middle man. Better for devs and consumers. Devs get more money and consumers get reduced prices” . Since, it has been nothing like that for consumers. I have seen digital games higher than physical on almost every game. Plenty of $20-$30 games that still have $60 digital prices.

      • disqus_icUCvMAJ5v

        Gotta agree! Getting stuck with a crappy game at 60 dollars really stinks. If the pricing structure for digital was one that made getting stuck with a crappy game less painful I wouldn’t mind taking the plunge. But at this stage being able to get some cash back from a poor purchase helps a lot.

  • beardyman3218

    Does anyone know how the hotspots work on this game. I go to one and it comes up with someone’s gamer tag and says they are the mayor.

    • stamps79

      When you get to the hotspot look at the ground with the check mark and stand on it and you’ll see an option to check in. It’s funky how they set this up, but that’s how you check in.

      • beardyman3218

        Thanks, what does checking in do?

  • usrev

    got the game on ps4. it isn’t bad but isn’t the best game ever. so far it is worth the price but only put 10 hours into it. lets see if it lasts another 50 hours to be worth it. 14% done so not sure if it will end up being worth it. I plan on getting close to 100% completion in the game though. I like the story so far too.

    hacking is an awesome element to the game. hopeful for a sequel that is more GTA like though, bigger world with more to do would be nice. it feels almost as bad as AC where you have a large world with nothing to do in it. at least running from the cops is fun in this opposed to AC where running is boring.

    • Guerrero Ultimo

      I pre-ordered 2 copies for ps4 since I had trade credit and I wanted to play online with my sons. Going to pick it up with Mario Kart 8 on Friday. I am just considering if I want to pick it up. I have heard plenty of positives but it is always with little caveats about it. Saw videos with players falling under the map. One video showed the guy hitting things in a car. Very slowly and then after 1-2 seconds they would bust like they were plowed into at a decent rate of speed. And just other random stuff. I can look over that if the story is engaging and the overall gameplay is good which is the only reason I am thinking of still picking these up.

  • Daz Green

    Ok so I commented yesterday about how disgraceful it was that Watch Dogs costs $60/£35 on Xbox One to download if your in the US and £60/$101 to download the same game if your in the UK, but now Watch Dogs on Xbox 360 has gone up in price! Yesterday it cost £50 and now its £55!!! Microsoft and Ubisoft are discriminating against people from the UK and EU and it needs to stop now!!!

  • Gazza!!!

    Numerous game breaking bugs, crash’s, chugging frame rate at busy moments especially online and ubisoft servers taking an age and a few trys to log in. This is not what I was expecting next gen to be.

    • deadbox102

      This is what the industry seems to have become.

      • beardyman3218

        With great power, comes great…..laziness? The jump from 512mb ram to 5.0gb hasn’t made developers do more its just made them lazy.

        • Riddick Snipes

          Well said.

        • Dylan

          It’s been 6 months. Compare Gun to Red Dead Redemption. Or Kameo to the Last of Us.

          Give them some time. Let some next-gen only games start to come out a few years from now, like Cyberpunk or a new Fallout before we judge where the industry is going.

          • beardyman3218

            I understand they haven’t had long to work with it but there is more than enough resources to make up for lack of knowledge but doesn’t seem to be happening. They should be pumping out more than we are seeing even at this early stage. I agree that we need some next gen only games, gears of war I’m looking at you.

          • disqus_icUCvMAJ5v

            Games are bigger than they ever have been before, so it stands to reason that the issues surrounding learning to develop for new platforms will bring bigger challenges than in previous generations. This is simply a cross generational game. We’ve always seen issues like this in a generational transition.

            With that said UBI Soft’s shenanigans regarding the E3 2012 footage and the final product is completely unacceptable.Graphics aren’t everything but that doesn’t mean they don’t matter. I’m still not sure if I want to chance buying this game.

    • Guest

      Those problems are on all the platforms (yes, on the PS4 too, even when DF claims it to be a solid 30fps it chugs a lot when it loads). It’s unacceptable that Ubisoft has put it like this on the market.

    • evilfangs .

      Imagine what the game looked like before the delay, back in November when it was supposed to be released.

      This generation has started out as the generation of delays. Got to have been 6 games delayed now. 3 or 4 of them being Ubisoft games. Watch Dogs, The Crew, The Division. Might be able to count South Park in that list and I’m sure Far Cry 4 will get delayed.

      • ElektroDragon

        Yep… plus delays with Evil Within, The Order, etc. Truly the generation of delays.

        Oh well more time to work on my massive backlog.

      • Guest

        Remember the E3 2012 footage of Watch Dogs which was supposed to be on the PS4? YEAH, THAT TURNED OUT THE SAME /s. Sony definitely moneyhatted to make that look better on their platform than it eventually turned out. That footage was even better than the Ultra settings on PC now in the final build and the PS4 version doesn’t come close to that.

        • disqus_icUCvMAJ5v

          It really appears as though there was some dishonesty there.

      • Gazza!!!

        I’m wondering if this is what they consider to be the final build after all that polishing what it looked like before as well. Its almost unplayable at times with the choppy frame rate. If anyone dose not believe me play the online races.

        • beardyman3218

          Mine only drops frames online I have intrusions turned off and my single players has had zero glitches or frame drops since. Make me think this being caused by the game constantly trying to connect to ubisofts terrible servers.

    • Mike

      Ubisoft servers? I thought they are all run off MS servers as they keep going on about the hundreds of new servers creating this giant cloud. Isnt that what we pay MS for?

      • Jim McPherson

        Publishers have to choose to use the MS cloud.

  • Mike

    Watch Dogs in the UK is now £54.99 after one day. The £59.99 yesterday was clearly a glitch, how do you get a refund.

    • Nick King

      If you find out let me know as they owe me £5 for Wolfenstein.

    • kevgallacher

      Still £59.99, the 360 version is £54.99.

  • Ross Kemp

    The first XB1 game I regret buying…….***WatchDogs*** , luckily I was not rich enough to go digital ( thanks MS ) – so off into town on my lunch hour and trading it in for store credit .
    The map is horrible , car handling terrible and just soooo many things that feel ” just wrong ” with the game .

    Meh , I got caught up in the hype so well done for that UbiSoft .
    I am however 100% certain I will not be buying WD2 ( bound to happen ) , no matter what improvements .
    GTA5 and RockStar can sleep easy .

    • beardyman3218

      I think its a great game. The map feels small however especially when compared to other free roam games. I would however like to play online but the servers are still down with no official word from UniSoft since they first acknowledged the problem.

      • Gazza!!!

        I have managed a few hours online hacking other players and being hacked whilst I try do some side quests. I haven’t even finished chapter 1 yet. Its a great little MP caveat when the servers connect to finding players and like a mini game of hide and seek. I still feel disappointed but its slowly growing on me but its not next gen like Ubisoft made out.

      • Mr&Mrs Ninja

        The servers are down? I was online all the time and never encountered a problem. Try all the game modes and see if that works.

    • http://people.ign.com/ltsjoemama ltsJoeMama

      It’s easily one of the more overrated games in recent years.

    • Peter

      Thanks guys was thinking of getting this but think I’ll wait hearing these comments what price should I wai for this at 40? Or even less got wolf that was worth it. Thief was the last x1 game I got full price and got burned on

        Don’t listen to foolishness from other people. The game is incredible. even so.. play it yourself before listening to silly people.

        • disqus_icUCvMAJ5v

          So, people who don’t agree with your opinion on the game are, “silly”?

          • http://Www.mylifewithgaming.wordpress.com/ Mitchell Hall

            No hipsters that hate on a game just because it has a lot of hype behind it and is a huge title are silly. He’s complaining about things giving no specific reason. And the driving is actually incredible, responsive and amazing fun. just because someone isn’t good enough to enjoy the driving doesn’t make it bad.

          • Negative Nando

            I hated the driving as soon as i started to play. 1hr later I suddenly fell in love with it. GIVE IT A CHANCE! XD

          • Negative Nando

            I’m silly and I love it XD

        • Negative Nando

          Well said. Pure foolishness! i bet 99% of the people bashing the game didn’t even give it a chance. ohhhhh nooo it doesn’t play or feel like GTA V OMFG!!!!AHHHHHHH!!!! its the end of the world!!!!! GREAT GAME UBISOFT.

          • Ross Kemp

            No more Mountain Dew and Cheetos in your diet .
            Calm down…..it is just a mid to average game with a great hype machine behind it – I am glad you enjoy it .

        If you have doubts don’t listen to anyone on here. It’s a weird game and not everyone is gonna hate it like Ross or love it like Nando. Some of the mini games and missions are repetive but still fun. If love a challenge put it on the highest difficulty because you might not die at all on normal. You might need to rent or borrow from a friend. Gamefly usually drops their used game prices to $40-$45 a few months after release. Thief is like $25 now. And then there’s always Redbox.

      I felt the same way with my first 10 minutes into the game but I didn’t give up on the game. It’s actually a really good game. Sorry your not open minded and want every game to play like GTA V.

      • Ross Kemp

        WatchDogs is a one trick pony , and that trick got old way too quick .

        Erm as for wanting every game to play out like GTA5………I kind of sunk nigh on 100hrs on the Dark Souls games , completed several Lego games and maxed out KillZone SF on PS4…………pretty eclectic mix of genres and none of them play remotely like GTA5..but they all play exceedingly well – unlike WatchDogs .
        Consider my mind – well and truly open .

    • Dylan

      I think it’s pretty solid. Not great. You dropped it too quickly, didn’t give it a chance. This isn’t Aliens Colonial Marines. (which I had traded in day 1).

      Remember Assassin’s Creed? And the game-changer that was Assassin’s Creed 2?
      This is a proof of concept, to be exponentially improved for the sequel, with record breaking sales (like Assassin’s Creed).
      Don’t be so quick to count out a sequel.

      • Ross Kemp

        Maybe I did drop it too quickly , but it was up against some stiff competition in my library such as GTA5 , Dark Souls 2 and BF4 MP – simply no interest in WatchDogs .

        Funny story………I was one of the few people who loved Assassin’s Creed 1 – I felt bored by everything in the franchise after that ( played a few of them for a hour or two and lost interest to other games in my library .

        As for Aliens Colonial Marines , I got that brand new for just £3 some weeks down the line after release ( great for £3 ) .

  • Death Dealer

    Didn’t buy it and after having played it at a friend’s, I’m glad I didn’t yet. Graphics are definitely not what they promissed some time ago in their trailers. It looks like there has been a deliberate deception going on about it as it’s happened even on the PC version.
    The map is small and it’s not as detailed, “alive” as I’d hoped back then. Rain looks cool though.
    Glad I saved $60 and bought Wolfenstein instead, which is a totally different type of game I know, but the sentiment still remains.

    • Liquidfx Xboxdude

      get gamefly. saved me $60 times hundreds.

      It’s sad that someone would not buy a game just because the graphics aren’t photo realistic. The game still looks beautiful. don’t know where all the real gamers went.

      • disqus_icUCvMAJ5v

        This is a little bit more about false advertising than anything. They portrayed the game as looking way better than it was actually going to look. That’s bad, and it would be nice if the industry would stop doing that.

        • Negative Nando

          It is always like this….. so you should already expect it. GET OVER IT!

      • Death Dealer

        It’s not about the graphics not being photorealistic and I don’t care about the resolution being slightly less on the Xbox One again either. It’s about us being told a lie and the game being a bugfest at the moment even after such a long delay. That’s what’s sad.

        • http://Www.mylifewithgaming.wordpress.com/ Mitchell Hall

          I have literally put 30+ hours into this game thus far and have not come across one single bug. not one. I understand on pc people are having problems due to uplay crashing, but those are just server problems that will be resolved soon… next we weren’t told any lies. There was one e3 demo in 2012 for God’s sake and ever since then the like 50 trailers have shown what it really looks like. so everyone should have known by now that the game didn’t look exactly like the e3 demo 2 years ago. even so it still looks gorgeous. it’s complaining just to complain.

          • disqus_icUCvMAJ5v

            So, alll the people saying they are having issues with the game are lying? Um… Alright.

          • http://Www.mylifewithgaming.wordpress.com/ Mitchell Hall

            No.. like I said the pc version is having a lot of issues. Not sure but I think it’s people with nividia that are having the most problems. One of them anyway. It’s funny because the 95% of people who are loving this game are obviously too busy having a blast with the game to come on message boards nitpicking about the most ridiculous things.

          • disqus_icUCvMAJ5v

            To many gamers frame rate issues and the graphics not being what they advertised are big issues and it’s not nitpicking to bring those up.

          • beardyman3218

            I haven’t experienced any frame drops since I turned off online features. Not saying other people haven’t got these issues but since turning off online functions I have not noticed any frame rate drops.

          • ImTheMetalLord

            Yea on the 360 there are over 10k votes with a 5 star average. Hmmmmm some people just don’t try it for themselves. I’m have a great time with it.

          • Death Dealer

            Not true, look at the video above. Don’t be shortsighted about this as it’s just proof that there is something wrong when devs start to badmouth on the internet themselves.
            I’m sure you enjoyed your game and I’m happy for you, but that doesn’t mean I agree with the business practices having been done with this game.

          • http://Www.mylifewithgaming.wordpress.com/ Mitchell Hall

            What video? I don’t even know what you’re talking about with the developers.. do you have the source for this? Anyway all that matters to me is that the game is smashing sales records and the vast majority of people are loving it.. just like me. I think the game is absolutely brilliant. I understand why some people would hesitate buying the game hearing other people nitpick it because a lot of them only get to buy a few games a year, but for me I buy every game on day one so I can get my own impressions instead of relying on other people with different tastes than myself. I find the vocal minority of gamers these days are just absolutely ridiculous with the things they complain about.

      • Negative Nando

        AGREED!!! I have the digital version for XBOX ONE. GREAT GAME!!!!

        • Mr&Mrs Ninja

          Did you guys try the mini games yet?! There is a giant robot spider, something like twisted metal where hit a bunch of demons with your car, a coin game like old school Mario, and a weird dark city inspired game called alone. This is game awesome! Maybe not that original, but awesome.

          • Negative Nando

            Spider tank!!!!!!!

          • ImTheMetalLord

            Yep Love them all…I got the game on the 360 and I actually love the game. You will not find a game like this and some of the small glitches I’m sure will be patched.

      • fur low

        Companies don’t spend millions every year pushing the graphics envelope for no reason. The more realistic looking the more immersive for me. But the real reason he is upset is the deception, much like the Forza 5 promised graphics compared to the actual product, disappointing.

  • Guest

    Watch idA9BEA4Hxs, You’ll have a laugh.

    • Death Dealer

      Yes, that’s one of the reasons why I won’t buy it yet. It’s a funny yet totally true video.

      • ImTheMetalLord

        That’s on a PC. On the 360 I haven’t found not one of those glitches. I did have a few screen tears but I expected that on the 360. Nothing major for me at least and the game itself is incredible for me.

    GREAT GAME!!!

      ****muffled laugh****

      • WARLORD

        GOOD GAME!!!

        • Ross Kemp

          OK , now that you SHOUTED it……………nope , still BS .

  • fur low

    This game looks bad compared to GTA 5, which is funny because I’m comparing it to GTA 5 on last gen consoles. When GTA 5 comes out on PS4 its going to put this game to bed.

    • WARLORD

      If anyone actually played the game, you would know Aiden is later known
      as “The Fox” and not just the boring old “Vigilante” that the author of
      this article suggests. Lol Comparing this game to GTA V is an insult.
      Rock star has let down so many GTA fans, not only in the many glitches
      and fantasy gameplay which takes away from real life experience of the
      game, but have countlessly failed to impress in GTA Online. The story line wasn’t the greatest, no. A bit mediocre and slow at first. Though it picks up near the end and setsup for a Watch Dogs 2. The innovative technology shown in the game is what makes the game.

    • Dylan

      Looks like even Battlefield will get heists before GTA.

  • WARLORD

    Watch Dogs is okay. It’s set in Chicago, represented as an open-world dystopic Ameritropolis. Watch Dogs‘ Chicago is boring compared to Grand Theft Auto V‘s Los Santos, but it feels accurately boring, its banality an actual choice. The GTA games are all atmosphere — what the marketing team would term “attitude”– and so every street corner of every GTA feels like the infrastructural analogue of a poster you put on your wall freshman year. Watch Dogs
    is the plain white wall behind that poster: Muted colors, murky
    characters, a vigilante known only as “The Vigilante.” The central plot
    is an incoherence: You’re a hacker activist anarchist superhero fighting
    the mob and the government and the big corporation and all criminals
    everywhere. But the game’s vanilla aesthetic has a point. It’s a blank canvas:
    Ubisoft wants you to fill it in. The notion of “customizing” your
    video game experience has been a central idea in video games for over a
    decade now: Creating your own character, giving them their own unique
    set of clothes, selectively adjusting their skill sets, choosing your
    own adventure.

    • Mr&Mrs Ninja

      That’s why it’s so addictive. Wish I could get an app like that in real life. My mini bio would say “Skydives in a Batman suit”

  • Mr&Mrs Ninja

    Why are people still talking about graphics? They already told everyone they downgraded the graphics because of flaws. The game still looks good and has a huge amount of detail!

  • Mike

    Loving this game, picked up the digital version and I think the grathics and world are great. Don’t get why people have to be negative all the time, enjoy the game. I have not come across any game that didnt have bugs in the last 10 years so nothing new there. This is going to be a great series. If your getting angry playing games, may I suggest you look for a new hobbie.
