Will the PC versions of Assassins Creed 4, Watch Dogs, etc be the best versions?

Highly unlikely. Expect console port central for next gen titles.

Yes--a console port with the optiomn of patching, button configuration and graphics settings. Oh--the games are usually $10 less and have no tax.

Still seems like the best version from where I'm sitting...

uh yes?

nobody knows if any of those games will run at 1080p/60fps on those consoles not to mention there's no way in hell "max settings" on the PC versions will be what we'll see in the console version and even if they are, there are still higher resolutions and framerates available to PC gamers as well as everything mentioned above.

I can only imagined you were asleep for the past decade or so of PC gaming. Many console ports are horribly optimized, and many lack basic functionality--to re-binding, few if any graphics options, etc.

Depending on your machine, yes. If you have the power to push them out at 1080p+ and 60fps+, you'll have the best version. You'll have gamepad or mouse/keyboard controls, so you get to choose. You'll have potential mods as well.

I'll bet most next gen games will not be at 1080p@60fps. You'll get one or the other, but not both typically. So the PC versions will potentially be the best versions this entire generation. Mark my words.

And yet every port I've played has been better on the PC. Interesting. All of them can be played with a gamepad, same as a console. Even ones like Dark Souls that was 720p (before mods) still runs at 30fps constant which is better than the consoles. With the crappiest port, you get at least the console version...doesn't say much for the console version if you ask me.
