Watch Dogs PC vs Console Face-Off: PC Version Is Very Slightly Better Than the Console Version

Ubisoft’s brand new hacker-themed IP was originally aimed to release last year along with the next-gen consoles but pointing at the need of further polishing, the developer pushed the game back into 2014. Keeping the community updated with the development progress, Ubisoft Montreal stated earlier this year that utilizing great console potential, Watch Dogs will look visually stunning across PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One and Xbox 360.

According to the developer, Watch Dogs is one of those games that look almost same on PC and next-gen consoles. Many gamers have been wondering how this claim holds up now when the game is actually released and PC gamers are rocking it on their high-end setups. Here’s a side-by-side direct-feed screenshot comparison between PlayStation 4 and PC versions on the game showing how the console version of the game holds up against PC version running on ultra settings.
