Good news, that this game is going smoothly on Wii U. I wonder if they'll think of anything interesting to use the touch screen for. However, in the end though if the game runs as well as (if not a bit better) then the PS3 and 360 versions of the game then everything is good.

If you look at some of the titles Ubisoft Montreal have been working on recently, and concurrently, it's no wonder that this year they should become the world's largest development studio. They're aiming for 3,500 staff according to Wikipedia. Can't wait to see what Bucharest come up with regarding the Wii pad, the Watch Dogs gameplay should be more perfect for it than any other platform.

Which makes the suggestion that they still don't know what to do with the Gamepad all the more baffling. You could get a 12 year old to come up with a dozen things, but apparently 3,500 game designers are stuck.

The way I read the article it looks like they've already nailed it all, they're just looking at different ways of implementing it compared to Move/Smartglass and regular controllers.

As indifferent as I am about the WiiU, that second screen is a cracking thing and should definitely be getting more attention. Watch Dogs is one of those games, like Splinter Cell or Assassin's Creed, that could take advantage of it in so many ways. I really hope Ubisoft do something good with it, because it's a huge waste if it's overlooked.
