Ubisoft Chooses PC For Watch Dogs Lead Platform

Want the best graphics for one of the best games of 2013? Well, I have two letters for you: PC.

While talking to InsideGamer, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot stated that Watch Dogs is being developed for PC before translation to other platforms. The reason given was the ease of porting games from PC architecture over to consoles, and that doing it the other way around has taken additional effort in the past.

Ubisoft is in-luck with the PlayStation 4's hardware which isn't a radical departure from PCs. Actually, it might be the easiest version to port to, which will only aid in ensuring it's optimized before release. It's also coming to the Wii U, PlayStation 3, and the Xbox 360 making Ubisoft's multi-platform endeavor as adventurous as possible. But not without reward. Watch Dogs, as fully displayed during the PlayStation 4 announcement, is a game that could very well be the best of the year. If it's as good as it looks, Ubisoft's fatiguing port jobs will precede success on sales charts.
