The lights are on
The first developer diary for Ubisoft's Watch Dogs is light on details and new information, but it does talk vaguely about PlayStation 4 plans, and briefly teases some kind of mobile interaction.
In the video below, senior producer Dominic Guay and creative director Jonathan Morin refer to the PlayStation 4 version of the game as a "magnified experience" and how excited they are for players to be able to share video clips of their gameplay experiences online. Guay and Morin also talk about playing the game anywhere, including when players are away from their home consoles. They don't outline how it works, but it appears that Watch Dogs will have some kind of interactive mobile experience that will affect your home game.
Pending any delays, Watch Dogs should be releasing this November for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC, and Wii U, with the PlayStation 4 version planned for some time before the end of 2013.

I got the feeling that this video was more about the Playstation 4 and less about Watch Dogs. Either way this game looks really cool and I'm glad it's coming to 360 too
Well of course it's going to look nicer on PS4 than the last generation consoles. It will still be best on PC though just because of mods and PC hardware always drives forward. Good marketing for PS4 anyways for those that are interested in it.
Can't wait to get a PS4 and watch dogs.
Its halfway through the year and i cant wrap my head around the fact its 2013. I keep thinking of all the games that were delayed to 2013 and that it still seems like forever when someone says "planned for some time before the end of 2013".
Ubisoft is definitely doing a lot of cool new things with Watch Dogs, and Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag looks pretty good as well, but I'm really hoping that we get some information on Rainbow Six: Patriots soon. I mean, it was announced about a year and a half ago, and they don't even talk about it.
