When the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One arrived gamers responded in a number of ways. Some people held onto their PS3 and Xbox 360 with the hope of upgrading to the new consoles later on, while others jumped right in and sold all their current games plus console for a new Xbox One or PS4. Finally, we have those that were able to keep their current console and upgrade to a PS4 or Xbox One at the same time, so they were able to keep playing games on both generations.
GTA V is played by millions of gamers on Xbox 360/PS3 and thanks to such a massive install base, GTA V can do just fine without the hurry of releasing a version for PS4 or Xbox One. This is great for Rockstar and gamers that kept their “last-generation” machines, but not so good for those that love GTA V and felt the need to upgrade along with selling either the PS3 or Xbox 360.
Watch Dogs multiplayer free roam is the perfect GTA V PS4 and Xbox One substitute – we really wanted to see a PS4 or XB1 version of Grand Theft Auto V, or even just GTA Online, but it hasn’t happened and if any port takes place in 2014 it will be a last minute surprise. This is why the Watch Dogs multiplayer modes and free roam is ideal for PS4 and XB1 players.
We are now exactly 7 days away from seeing Watch Dogs reach its release date on PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and of course Xbox One. The latest generation of consoles is what interests us most with this game, and the main reason is the need for such an open world free roam multiplayer game to get online with friends and family.
Watching someone play GTA V on a PS3 while you have a PS4 has to tell you something, and this is exactly what some gamers are doing right now. While the PS4 and Xbox One has great games with amazing graphics, GTA V is one game a lot of people miss about the last generation.
Personally, Watch Dogs will be our answer to getting online with XB1 and PS4 friends in a way we wanted to do with GTA Online, although there will be a lot less to do in Watch Dogs when compared to GTA Online.
Thanks to review reasons, we have all the last and current generation consoles but find it hard stepping back from PS4 or XB1. We doubt we’re alone in the desire to see GTA V on PS4 and XB1, or the fact that Watch Dogs open world free roam multiplayer will be welcomed with open arms on these consoles.
Will you be purchasing Watch Dogs on PS4 or Xbox One thanks to the need for an open world game? If so, will you be getting online with friends in multiplayer free roam next week?
