Talk of the PS4 being a magnitude more powerful than the Xbox One may be exaggerated, Watch Dogs' senior producer Dominic Guay has suggested.

"The hardware is still new and it's obvious to us that it is going to take a while to get to the full power and harness everything," Guay told Nowgamer. "What is clear is that both systems, PS4 and Xbox One, have comparable power which is good for us as developers."

There have been rumours that the Xbox One will be unable to match the capabilities of the PS4, but Guay's comments suggest the difference may only be small.

Regarding the next generation versions of Watch Dogs, Guay says there are numerous enhancements possible when compared to current-gen.

"There are obviously quite a few differences," said Guay. "There's graphics, of course, but there's also the dynamism of the city. For example, the water is far more realistic on next gen, the way it flows and parts when you drive a boat through it. We also gave better brains to NPCs, they are smarter in what they do and how they react to the player. Plus, there is a lot more of them on the street at once."

Watch Dogs will be released November 22 on Xbox 360, PS3, Wii U and PC. PS4 and Xbox One versions will be out around the time of the respective console launches.
