      So many promising looking games being shown. Add another to the list.
      Where are we going and why am I in this handbasket?

      No way in hell that's running on a current gen system. Way too much going on graphically.

      This is like "Person of Interest". (the TV series) But more intense action.

      This game will give Rockstar (GTA5) a good kick in development.

      The gameplay video blew my mind. Like others have said, I can't believe that was running on a PS3. If the release is anywhere close to this, I've never been so excited about a game before. So much potential.

      That has to be game of the show. The Last of Us looks awesome too, but this just seems to have something else entirely.

      The thing with this game is it was a complete surprise to me. I will check in with the various game sites almost daily and there wasn't a peep on this game prior to E3. The Last of Us saw plenty of coverage both online and in print media.

      Agree 100%. The Last of Us still looks great, but my enthusiasm for it is a bit deflated after seeing this preview. Aside from the insane visuals and the fact you can control the environment, the gun fight where he went into slow-mo was like visual poetry. Beautiful effect.

      The video in the OP was like watching a good movie... but how does it play?

      When I saw it was Ubisoft.. I realized this was Assassin's Creed near future.
      And that's not a bad thing.
      The modern adaptation of the (historic assassin's) story to a modern time should fix many of the issues some people have the the AC games.

      Notice the entire game play video takes place at one intersection and close by....

      I just watched the video again the 1080p.
      The game engine does a very good job of appropriate rendering based on the distance.
      Initially we are wowed by the leaves and leaf shadows.. but watch the video again.
      When he first walks to the exhibit, the cars in the near distance are blurred out and have very simple renderings- which makes the things close by with high detail seem that much better and also adds exaggerated depth perception.

      Go to 7:38 (gun battle at intersection crash scene) and you see a headlight pop in to high detail rendering just five feet away.

      So the close up detail is impressive- but without knowing the draw distance and relative detail at longer distance - and the load times of the game - it is possible that an efficient engine could be running this game on older hardware than you might think.

      And I wanted to add the people look so real due to their movements, not because of amazingly accurate renderings. Some of their faces look more painted on than real. So there were obvious compromises made for hardware.

      Perhaps.

      One a different note, that video you posted looks like it would make for a good movie.

      In an interview at E3 today, Ubisoft senior vice president of sales and marketing Tony Key confirmed to IGN that Watch Dogs is headed to consoles and PC and could even come to Wii U.

      “PS3, 360 and PC,” Key told us when we asked him to confirm which systems we can expect Watch Dogs to be released on.

      http://ca.ign.com/articles/2012/06/0...ould-hit-wii-u

      The demo they showed was running on PC. So not sure what it will look like when they "dumb" it down for the Xbox

      I was on the edge of my seat watching it. Glad to have more details and to see that you can choose how bad of a vigilante you want to be.

      So far all I have seen was some guy walking around and watching what other people are doing around him.
