Watch Dogs confirmed for PC, Xbox 360 and PS3

Ubisoft Montreal's Watch Dogs is one of the most interesting games shown at E3 so far, an open-world cybercrime affair where you can hack into the world around you. Yet Ubisoft was conspicuously quiet about which platforms it was being developed for, leading to speculation that it may be intended for next-generation consoles. No, it isn't, the publisher has since confirmed.

Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot clarified this to GameTrailers TV, those owl-ears at Edge heard. It was perhaps to be expected--while certainly awfully pretty, due in no small part to being demoed on a PC, the graphics didn't seem above and beyond current-gen tech.

Now that's settled, let's all watch the lovely announcement trailer again:

      I wonder what it will look like on the Xbox360 & PS3... all they have showed is PC footage thus far.

      Depends on the DRM; if they use Steamworks only, it's bought; if UPlay and persistent connection required, pass.

        Totaly! Looks great! But almost to often game concepts like this are boiled down to the minimum features. Anyway keep an eye open for this one!

      They should have partnered with Apple and named this, Watch Dogs: There's an App for That.

      I haven't been this interested in a game just from a video since Valve revealed HL2 at E3 all those years ago. This looks slick.
