Did you guys see that?!

That was unbelievable, i was just in awe throughout the wholle video!!!

Watch Dogs, the first next Gen game?

And was that a Wii U Pro Controller, or some controller for the PC?

If that was on the Wii U...

I didn't expect it to be that powerfull...

I can only imagine what the PS4, and the next Xbox will be able to produce...

Edit 1:

Check it out, if you haven't wathced it, and if you did, watch it again!!!

http://e3.gamespot.com/press-conference/ubisoft-e3/

It's at the one hour mark.

Edit 2:

It's a 3rd party PC pad that looks like a 360 controller.

It was running on a killer PC.

People felt the same way about Halo 2. Watch Dogs is interesting and has potential, but calm down.

I thought 360??

#6 Posted by Intro (1205 posts) -

Had to have been PC, it looked great. Actually excited for a game from E3.

Did you also experience some girlwood?

I was under the impression that was PS3 footage.

I did. I truly did. Tasted like pennies.

Watchdogs is not next-gen. It's Assassin's Creed with a different setting and a cover system.

It looked like he was using a dualshock controller, but there was no onscreen indications of any sort as to what it was running off

From what they've displayed at the presser it seemed a lot more than that. Especially that ending, leading us to believe the game has an connected online world with that fidelity of graphics? Very impressive and lots of unanswered questions, which is great. Actually genuinely excited.

You could say that about every game ever, except the very first one.

#18 Posted by Hamz (6846 posts) -

Looked like they were playing it on the PS3, visually the console is capable of producing some astoundingly beautiful games such as God of War 3, Killzone 3, Uncharted series and so on. Wouldn't be surprised if Ubisoft spent some time working on making the game look and run well.

It's running on a PC. That doesn't mean it's next-gen.

In the chat someone said it was some kind of PC 3rd party controller.

Never said it was or wasn't next gen and quite honestly I don't care. I was responding to your comment of it being derivative of Assassin's Creed which it clearly is not.

It's definitely not the PS3's or the Wii U controller.

It has the same colored buttons as the 360 pad, and it looks like it, but i think it's a third party PC pad, that looks like a 360 controller.

Look at my last post.

It wasn't a PS3 pad.

It looks like a 360 pad, but it's probably a third party one, and even if it was the official one, that was running on a killer PC.

Assassin's Creed is just Splinter Cell with a different setting, combat and climbing mechanics -- which iself was just Thief with high-tech equipment and a different setting (and so forth).

Here's a screencap. Looks like a third party xbox controller.

...

I just asked my roommate what game he thought that looked like. He said 'future Assassin's Creed'. I don't understand why saying it's like Assassin's Creed is such a fucking controversy.

Really who cares what it comes out on.  I'm going to get a next-box or PS4 anyway, or just get it on the PC.
 
Also that Far Cry 3 looked pretty great.  I like the weird, tripped-out direction they went with it.

Ubi just showed that great games and megatons make a e3 show great even if the hosts are jacked up on redbull and cocaine and wont shut up. 
 
 
That co host guy like Patrick x5 on the "WHY THE HELL WONT YOU SHUT UP" o meter

Game looks interesting. The exuberance of the OP makes me feel nauseous though :D

Its sad that Giant Bomb has basically become a community of bitter hipsters. Any enthusiasm for any type of game is immediately mocked.

#35 Posted by stinky (1543 posts) -

ubisoft set a high bar by talking about games at e3.

#36 Posted by Rattle618 (1463 posts) -

How does another open world game turn the industry on its head?

The demo looked awesome, but you are going too far with I think.

#37 Posted by Eidderf (506 posts) -

This is a shot in the dark but maybe it looks like a 360 control but not quite is that it was being played using the controller for the next xbox (or some sort of early prototype)

Probably not, but it's weird they didn't announce any platforms.

#38 Edited by Puzzler20 (78 posts) -

According to an Ubisoft Release Calander it is a PC PS360 Game.

BTW that makes me Less Excited for this game but I still want that game.

You know that sheer joy and excitement of a new mysterious product you feel? 
I haven't felt that in years. Sure, I've felt unbelievable hype for Battlefield 3 and Red Dead Redemption for example, but they all felt like iterations, recycling games we know, styles we've gotten enough of. 
 
But when I watched that Watch Dogs demo, for the first time in years I didn't wanna be cynical orstart comparing it to other games. I just felt a raw new IP in front of me that shows incredible potential. I am excited. 
 
It will probably be another cover based console shooter with aim assist, scripted events, too many cutscenes, QTEs, pseudo-freedom and the camera control being taken away from me all the time (like Far Cry 3), but hey, a man can dream.

Confirmed by Ubisoft that it was running on a PC.

Here's a better look at the controller.

It looks more like a cheap knock off of the 360 game pad for the PC.

Maybe if no one can find that controller on the Web, you could be right about it being an early prototype for the next Xbox controller.

Looks cool. Will be getting it.

I rarely get excited about games, abut man, just feel like a little kid on chistmas morning right now!!!

Pretty much. This easily has potential for game of the show, though it's a little unfair because it's probably going to be one of the only surprises of the show.

Sure, there is a cynical part of me that wants to believe that demo was literally the coolest possible execution of all of those hacking abilities, and I know at some point that game will come out and people will write guides for it, and in reality there are probably one or two abilities that are abusable as hell.

But c'mon, that trailer was cool as fuck, and came out of nowhere, and is basically the amount of hacking that would've made sense for the new Syndicate.

I just, can't believe that...

I don't know how they're gonna put this game on the 360 or PS3.

It just looks like something so far beyond the capabilities of the current hardware.

It literally made AC3 look like crap in comparisson...

I would pay $60 just for a game that I can walk around an open world and randomly jam cell phone signals to piss people off.

No. Seriously, give me that game.

#50 Posted by erikalui (21 posts) -

I too am excited about the gaming functions and the new releases shown on Youtube. I just now want the game in my hand to have a blast.
