I dont know for sure but the E3 2012 preview video might have been on a pc. The GFX on my pc with this game are amazing.
So ive been playing it a little more today and i hate to say it but im bored already.
Distill Watch Dogs down to its core concepts, however, and you've got Grand Theft Auto III. Again.
The remarkable thing about the "Drive somewhere, kill someone, drive away," feedback loop is it holds remarkable sway over me. It's a more story-driven method of "filling up progress bars," and each new mission brings the same rush as unlocking that next gun in Call of Duty or whatever. But with a story this bland, there's nothing to show for it at the end.
None of the side missions make particularly interesting use of the hacking mechanic, and after the fifteenth time you see the ground explode in the same exact manner—well, the problem with gimmicks is that gimmicks quickly grow old.
Watch Dogs is beautiful, but it doesn't do anything to change up the same core game we've seen since Grand Theft Auto III. This game is "next-gen" in the looks department only.

That's actually a good way to look at it; I will have fun playing a game, but for how long will that fun last and will it be worth the $60? I wait for reviews as well, but I take them with a big grain of salt. I've seen critics give games low scores when I actually thought they were good. It's just someones opinion. If you look at the user rating score, though, you will get a good idea as to what other gamers feel about it and it's the most accurate thing to go by, IMO.
I know it's not a fair comparison, but I much prefer GTA 5 to Watch Dogs, there's just more to do in it and is less repetitive. - See more at: www.abovetopsecret.com...
