Some say this year’s E3 conference has been something of a disappointment so far – given that rumoured next-gen consoles from the likes of Sony and Xbox have failed to appear – but there are incredible new games out there, and they are running on PCs.
Presumably unable to make mention of any new console their games might appear on, firms such as Ubisoft and LucasArts are running new games on high-end PCs during demonstrations.
Ubisoft’s Watch Dogs made a huge impact on Monday. According to sister site MCV: “Things to note: the dynamic lighting, the incredible cloth physics, the highly detailed facial animation, the lack of NPC repetition. That’s simply not possible on 360 or PS3 if, as Ubisoft insists, the demo was real-time.” Which means it can only currently run those graphics at that standard on a PC.
