    between this and "the last of us" it seems like developers are finally pushing the console hardware.

    Great game, seems like it's got the best of GTA and Assassin's Creed.

    This game does look good. I wonder what wonderful version(s) of DRM they will be incorporating into this latest Ubisoft title?

    It's gonna be like in cycling where the anti-doping controls take place at any time even off competition. So, the anti-doping agency can ring at your door at 4 AM (while you are on holiday in the Swiss Alps) and ask you to give them a urine sample. Ubisoft on the other hand will send a pop-up message on your screen, whenever they choose and they will ask you what's your key code. You have to answer in ten seconds.

    After all the game is called "WATCH DOGS".

    Nice graphics. Though extreme realism brings extreme boredom.

    The player control of technology is interesting. And the graphics look good.

    Maybe it's just me though, but causing a pileup of innocent people to assassinate one guy seems a bit extreme. Not very professional for a hit man either.

    i also agree.. nice looking for minutes, then the overly-scripted or overly non scripted boredom takes over.

    DAMN, looks like Watch Dogs could end up chewing Max Payne 3 up and spitting it out. Better graphics, better movement, better gunplay. The only thing that seemed a bit off was the getaway car sounded a little arcade.

    When I started watching it I was mistaking it for Sleeping Dogs, formerly named True Crime Hong Kong, but I knew the graphics weren't that good in Sleeping Dogs. The ironic thing is they promised fluid movement in Sleeping Dogs, but if anything the movement looks more fluid in this game, and no onscreen highlight clutter.

    That said, I hope this really is in-game footage of a demo, vs pre production uncompressed scenes just to sell the game. In reality. most games don't end up looking that good because they make them with a one size fits all platforms approach.

    Story wise, is a pile up that probably just results in people making claims on their auto insurance really that extreme? What if the person he's after causes thousands if not millions of innocent people to be affected and/or killed by his actions if not stopped?

    Yeah the methods are a bit over the top, but designed to be fun, as in game vs real life. Also, a real life assassin would typically work off a dossier and have a plan ready. It obviously appears in this case he had to find the info as he went and improvise.

    Last of Us looks mediocre at best by comparison. A bit moot for me though as I refuse to own a gamepad controlled system.

    It is very likely running on the AnvilNext engine which, presumably, is ready for the 8th generation of consoles. Performance figures on 8th gen PlayStation and Xbox shouldn't be too far behind mid-high end gaming computers available now. I have no reason to believe any of the gameplay was faked/cheated; granted, it was likely done on very high end (likely quad SLI/Crossfire) computer.

    That car/crappy looking gas fire thing needs work. Mainly because everything else looks excessively detailed.

    Looks good but that bit looked like an interactive movie. Also, the tough guy thing feels dated but with awesome graphics. Left me with a feeling of .. "yawn".
