Ubisoft reps have stated on several occasions that Watch Dogs was originally developed as a PC only title before the decision was made to bring it to every console. After having a look at these specs, I think it’s clear to see that PC owners will definitely benefit from having the most definitive version of the game yet.

Watch Dogs launches worldwide on May 27th for the PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360. A Wii U version of the game will also hit retailers later this year.
