Watch Dogs: PC is lead platform

Watch Dogs developer Ubisoft Montreal is using PC as its lead platform before taking its sandbox game to PS4 and - most likely - Xbox 720.

Speaking with Dutch site Inside Gamer, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot revealed that Watch Dogs is using PC as its lead platform, and will then be ported to subsequent formats.

The reason - he said - was that the AMD-based PS4 architecture makes it easier to port games across from PC than previous generations.

Said Guillemot, "We expect fewer problems with porting games to the PS4 than the PS3, which had a completely different infrastructure. Previously, we developed games first on the Xbox 360 and then translated them onto the PS3. It took a lot of time and money to port."

But now PS4 is easy to port for, he says.
