soooo wasnt this supposed to next gen?

#1 Posted by super2j (1666 posts) -

recently this game was revealed and everyone went crazy. The internet decided that it was a next gen game that will come out in a year or two. So my question is, what happened?

#2 Posted by BlackLagoon (1403 posts) -

I think you're confusing it with Ubisoft's Watch Dogs.

#3 Posted by Leptok (942 posts) -

I had the same problem.

#4 Posted by iAmJohn (6114 posts) -

And no, Watch Dogs is not next-gen.

It's okay. I have also confused Sleeping Dogs with Watch Dogs before.

@iAmJohn: What makes you say that?

Yeah but what about Wonder Dogs?

Because they said that during E3?

Wait, what!? Wag The Dog: The Game?? Why didn't anyone tell me about this? GET FUCKING HYPED!

I never heard that. They never said it was. But they certainly never said it was for current generation consoles either. And there's no way it'll be PC exclusive, as much as the platform needs AAA exclusives.

Strangely enough, I went to the Watch Dogs board because I remember there's a thread in there about it being announced for current-gen, but the OPs in both are mysteriously missing. D:

Here's a story on Joystiq about it.

Yves Guillemot said himself that Watch Dogs was coming out on current generation consoles at least on a GT interview. They showed the PC version and obviously he couldn't say anything about next gen. My guess is that it will come out on both, they probably aren't sure themselves yet.

I'm obligated to harass you. Be back when I think of something demoralizing.

#19 Posted by AngelN7 (2970 posts) -

So what I take from this is that the gaming community is not ready for any kind of dogs in game tittles.

The door is wide open for a Snoop Lion game.

This is obviously the prequel minigame collection to Watch Dogs.

Watch Dogs will be an Ouya exclusive.

what?

#23 Posted by Encephalon (1240 posts) -

I thought the same thing for a fraction of a second when I saw the Sleeping Dogs review on my screen.

#24 Posted by Redbullet685 (6031 posts) -

Everyone is mistaking Sleeping Dogs for Watch Dogs.

#25 Posted by VoshiNova (1671 posts) -

Remember Cat dog?

#26 Posted by Seppli (10251 posts) -

On the topic of Watch Dogs, it is as much next gen, as it is current gen - for all we know. During the transitional phase between console generations, most games come out for both generations.

Ah I see now. I somehow missed that tidbit. Weird how they left it out of the press conference.

That's correct, I'm pretty sure they confirmed that at E3.

ok, so what i learned today is that i only have room in my brain for 1 "dogs" title.

When Sleeping Watch Dogs is released, *then* we can all be confused.

#34 Posted by Rafaelfc (1324 posts) -

we need more "dogs" games!

I will bet 1000 dollars Watch Dogs is 2013 Xbox 720 launch title, with low graphics ports to PS3 and 360.

#37 Posted by JeanLuc (3577 posts) -

Hahaha my friend said the exact same thing to me yesterday. Admittedly it is a little confusing.

#38 Posted by super2j (1666 posts) -

to be honest, i am not at all embarrassed by this. While i knew about the truecrimes game that was shut down, i had no idea what they did to it, ie sleeping dogs. This is an open world game, just like the other dogs game. I feel no shame

Booo next gen.  Long live current!

Change the name to Watch Lions and we won't have this problem. Snoop's ahead of the curve.

#42 Posted by SaltyPancakes (110 posts) -

Sleeping Dogs looks quite a bit nicer on the PC due to DX11 all up in the pants. Watch Dogs was running on a PC as well during the E3 pants creaming so I doubt it will look like that when released on the ps3/360

I am next-gen.
