So I want to play Watch Dogs, but I really don't want to deal with UPlay. Should I suck it up and get it on steam? Or buy it on console? Or pass it up entirely?

I'm pretty sure even if you buy it on Steam, you still have to deal with Uplay.....? Every Ubi game I've bought via Steam requires Uplay installed, updated and launched before I can get into the actual game.

This. This is how it works with Far Cry 3. IMO, it's not a big deal. If you want the game, buy it. Uplay is still better than Origin.

Watch Dogs is looking awesome and UPlay isn't a big hassle. Get it.

I was pretty disappointed to find out that the game doesn't support SLI whatsoever. Sorry, but I'm not going to order a GTX 780 just to run the game on Ultra and I apparently can't run dual 680's due to the lack of SLI support. For now, I'm going to have to hold off on this game.

Even if you get it on uPlay, you can still sort of "add" it to your library on Steam and use Steam as your initial launcher. I usually do this with my uPlay titles because I would forget about them otherwise. If you're unfamiliar with the process, go to the Games tab and click on Add a non-Steam game to my library.

Also it should be noted that you may have to possibly disable the Uplay overlay if you want the steam in-game overlay to work. I had to for a few of the Uplay games I own on steam.
