The lights are on
Watch Dogs was one of the most buzzed-about reveals from E3 last summer, and many were speculating that it would be a next-gen title. Kotaku has received some leaked marketing material for the game, and they might contain a hint regarding the game's availability.
Instead of the standard "Available for Xbox 360 and Playstation 3" line, one poster lists the game as "available on all home consoles." It's vague, but could possibly hint at something we've been speculating about for months.
One of the pieces of marketing features a quote from G4 stating that Watch Dogs is a "truly next-gen adventure." So basically, don't be surprised when you see Ubisoft's new IP on the next generation of consoles.

I hope it is next gen even though I want to play it now. If it is for current gen they may downgrade it a little bit.
Would love to see it on Wii U with the interesting things the Game Pad can do. Also might lead to that the next gen can do more, but are not that much graphically better. Lets wait and see. Really excited for Watch Dogs. Also hope it is not competing against another Assassins Creed.
Oh well. I should have expected this, but I wanted to believe I wouldn't have to throw another $500 or so at Gamestop to play this. Still, this game seems really interesting, and I can't wait for more information.
I could imagine the hype for this is already through the roof.
I was thinking that it would be on next gen because of the timeing of the game an stuff.
This game looks unique.
I take it that doesn't include the Ouya?
Strike out months and put years. It's been way too long, but I think we're going to witness it very soon.
it defintley looks like a next gen game
I do expect this game to be next gen. I wouldn't think Ubisoft would release it so late in the current consoles life span.
Sounds good to me!
It certainly looks next-gen.
I'll buy it! I wonder if Star Wars 1313 will come out around the same time?
Soo.... how about PC?
soooooo wii u then? ;) ya know, just a technicallity ... idc what system its on honestly long as its 1 that i have ....pc is probly the best option for me if they do a version for it since its not in a particular generation and i'll probly be too broke for a ps4 :/
