Just wait for the next gen if you plan to pick it up or PC version. It is not that long and you will have more fun if

IT'S TOUGH MAN, I'm holding out for the PC version, but I think a better version will be worth the wait.

Yeah, it is tough ;). I usually just get bored of waiting for a title. So I'm feeling if I wait 20 days I might just not end up playing at all - questionable if it's such a big loss though ;).

Can't just wait a small amount of time?

Games don't release the whole holiday season. Starting now til the end of Nov. and then there's probably not much in December.

For my money, water is one of those things you want the best possible graphics for. There's a lot of water in AC4.

It would be silly to buy it now, just apply the tiniest amount of patience.

I say wait - unless your next gen system purchase is years off. It's a great game, but man, when I first started playing my first thought was "Man, I thought these games looked better", it's only been a year since AC3 but it seems my expectations for visuals are starting to shift towards the look of next gen games.

ACIV still looks quite nice thanks to its setting, colour palette and the open sea, but there are jaggies, pop-in and rough edges as far as the eye can see. I'd definitely recommend waiting for one of the more visually polished versions that'll also run at a much nicer framerate.

Does AC IV have one of those upgrade deals where you get the next gen version for cheap? That's the only reason to buy the inferior version now instead of waiting

Don't be a chump. Wait for the superior version.

Personally I'm gonna wait. More stuff I have to justify getting next-gen consoles right out of the gate, the better.

@crazybagman: Except you actually have to keep the PS3/Xbox360 disc in the drive of the PS4/Xbone to actually play the new version(verfication check). It's to prevent people from selling the game to Gamestoop after downloading the next gen version.

I'm waiting to see how the game looks and runs on the PS4 to decide between that and the PC version. At this point it's the only game at launch i'm interested in.

I'm grabbing it at launch with my PS4. I doubt it'll look drastically better than current consoles but I'd rather wait and hope for a more constant/steady frame rate.

Assassins Creed IV was my go-to PS4 games for the past few months. So, yup, I'm waiting...and would have waited even if it was just a 6/10 or 7/10 game. The only thing that would have stopped me was if the PS3 ver. would have been just better and much more stable than the PS4 version.

If you have a good pc or plan to get a next gen console, I'd definitely recommend holding off the current gen version.

I'd wait, in fact I am waiting. There's no real point in getting it now if you're going to be capable of playing a higher end version soon enough. Find a distraction til then is all the advice I can really offer.

If you have a decent PC, I'd wait for that version. It should be superior to both the XO & PS4 versions.

How'd you feel about that purchase? I'm about 4hours in on PC, and can't stand all the poor design choices made. I hear it gets better further in, but I don't think I have the patience to get that far in it. The first 2 hours especially were quite terrible.

Definitely waiting for the PC version. Hopefully it'll come through when I pick up one of these new NVIDIA cards anyway.
