Wii U Players Cannot Post Watch Dogs Screenshots to Miiverse (or anywhere else)
What is Ubisoft trying to hide?
First, let me explain how this process works on a Wii U, just in case you don’t know. On a Wii U, at any time that you are playing a game, you can press the Home button on the controller. From there, you can launch the Internet Browser or Miiverse, and you can choose to post the image on your screen (either your TV screen or your Gamepad screen) exactly as it is either on the Miiverse or on any website of your choice in full resolution.
It’s a very simple and great way to share screenshots, with no downgrade involved, and especially on Miiverse, it can make for a vibrant community with players sharing their best moments in games, and just showing their game off.
Apparently, this is not an option with Watch Dogs- head on over to the Miiverse community, and you’ll notice a distinct lack of any screens. It soon becomes clear why- “No screenshots allowed. I tried attaching one to this Miiverse post, I also tried the web browser method at i.nintendo.net,” one user said.
I wonder what Ubisoft is trying to hide, here. By all accounts, Watch Dogs on Wii U is a good looking game, albeit obviously not as good as the PS4 or Xbox One versions. What are they trying to achieve?
