Look, I know this isn’t exactly huge news. In fact, I don’t think it’s really news at all. It’s a quiet day though, so allow me this little folly.
It’s a single screenshot (or render, you can never be too sure) from Ubisoft’s eye-meltingly delicious Watch Dogs.
Some places are salivating over this and declaring that it’s far too good to be “this gen”. To that, we say: “Duh… that’s because it’s a PC shot and good PC shots haven’t looked like current gen consoles for a couple of years.” because we’re a bit snarky like that on a Friday afternoon.
It is gorgeous though and I’m still a little bit dubious of the claim we’ll see this on Xbox 360 and PS3 myself. But that’s a good thing. Stunning, slightly unbelievable graphics are what a significant portion of loving this pastime is about for me. That and the parties, obviously. We have awesome parties when nobody is looking.
