Funny. I was just debating today if I should cancel my preorder for it and getting another game at PS4 launch.

Probably for the better, after GTA V nobody was caring for it anymore.

Dammit!

One of the only games I was looking forward to this year. Guess I'll get it on PS4 next year.

Whattt!!!

Infamous: Second Son will kill (DESTROY) this game in Spring.

What a fuckup, if true.
Single platform game destroying a multiplat game? Nah. This is a good thing. More polish always helps.

They might have been worried about ACIV poaching sales too.

That next-gen launch line-up looks weaker by the day. Oh, well. Wasn't really a fan of what I had seen, but definitely disappointing news for a lot of people.

After GTA5, all other open world games are look like child's play. These guys are probably feeling the heat. I dont think 2-3 months will fix any thing.

Yeah, this is pretty bizarre. How could they possibly not know about the delay months ago, shouldn't it have been going gold pretty soon?
this is ubisoft. remember rayman legends for wii u? delayed ~6 months a couple weeks before its release date. the game was finished.

I'm interested to see how Amazon US handles the change to the PS4 Watchdogs Bundle. Better do it in a way that doesn't move people down the pre-order list.

Game needed it, looked pretty cool, but GTA V shattered expectations of an open world game in in my opinion and my interest in Watch dogs was waning.

DAT GTA V

No surprise. There was a clear step backwards in graphical fidelity.. it needs serious work. It would have competed with AC4 as well which doesn't make a lot of sense for Ubi.

Do you mean visually? If so, I agree,but it sounds like you could be referring to sales. If so, it wont even be close with Watch Dogs selling much more due to a massive install base advantage.

Having said that, Im disapointed with whats happened with this game. I was so excited when it was announced. Now, I dont even care if its delayed.

This is one of the latest delays I've seen, but it's probably for the best. I was really getting a feeling like this was being rushed out.

AC4 actually looks quite good, so I'll give that a shot one more time.

Seen many comments about why are ubi releasing 2 similar open world type games at the same time,

Makes sense really

Disappointing somehow but on the other hand understandable because there were quite a few negative voices regarding the game and I guess they also did not want to compete with Assassin's Creed 4. Releasing later will give them enough time to really polish the title and make sure it will look nice on all systems.

The one game I wanted to pick up at release for the xbox one. I guess I can cancel my preorder now. It'll give me time to save money and finish all the games in my backlog.

Honestly a smart move. It was going to get overlooked.

They did blow the lid too soon though. Imagine if they could have capitalized on the initial reveal hype.

Seriously??

Well...thanks for making my decision easy Ubisoft. One of the main reasons I was going to buy this game was for PS4 launch. Coming out near Infamous SS, I have no reason to pick this up.

Sony's going to be pissed. They co marketed the fuck out of this thing at every major event.
It's Ubisoft's loss in the end. Game is going to struggle on PS4, releasing the same time as Infamous, especially since Sony are going to want to prefer to push their first party offerings.

Well that's $240 ($120 x 2) Australian dollars saved for now. Yes, was planning to buy both PS3 and PS4 version since they come with different Steelbook).
