      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.

      this is bad...

      http://www.gamesindustry.biz/article...to-spring-2014

      Ubisoft is pushing back all versions of its ambitious hacking adventure into next year; The Crew also delayed while financial outlook changed

      Ubisoft's Watch_Dogs has been one of the most anticipated games of 2013. The buzz surrounding the title has been palpable since its E3 debut, but now as it turns out, Ubisoft has made the difficult decision to delay all versions of Watch_Dogs until Spring 2014.

      A representative for the development team at Ubi sent the following statement:

      "Our ambition from the start with Watch_Dogs has been to deliver something that embodies what we wanted to see in the next-generation of gaming. It is with this in mind that we've made the tough decision to delay the release until Spring 2014."

      "We know a lot of you are probably wondering 'why now?' We struggled with whether we would delay the game. But from the beginning, we have adopted the attitude that we will not compromise on quality. As we got closer to release, as all the pieces of the puzzle were falling into place in our last push before completion, it became clear to us that we needed to take the extra time to polish and fine tune every detail so we can deliver a truly memorable and exceptional experience."

      "We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you. We thoroughly enjoy and appreciate the way you respond on the web, at events, press conferences and during other opportunities we have to interact. Your passion is what drives us. We can't wait to see you in Chicago next Spring. We are confident you'll love this game as much as we love working on it."
      They already missed the chance to release this game BEFORE GTA5. Now they are going to push the release day in Spring 2014 - around the (rumor) release time of GTA5 for PC.

      http://kotaku.com/ubisoft-has-no-ans...x-o-1445675601

      News of the big Watch Dogs delay left us with one big question: what happens to people who shelled out money to pre-order the Watch Dogs PS4/Xbox One bundles, expecting to get both game and console this November?

      UPDATE (4:24pm): Amazon says they're honoring PS4 bundle pre-orders, minus the game. Original post follows:

      Earlier this year, Ubisoft partnered up with Sony to offer a next-gen bundle that would include both the next PlayStation and Ubisoft's open-world game. GameStop offered their own bundle that included Watch Dogs and the Xbox One. People who pre-ordered one of the two bundles expected to get both game and console this November.

      But now Watch Dogs isn't coming out this November—it's coming out next spring. Which leads to the question: what happens to people who pre-ordered a Watch Dogs bundle?

      I reached out to Ubisoft to ask what's going on. Their response was... vague:

      Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo understand the importance of releasing games of the very highest quality for their consoles. Our partnership with Sony remains strong and we will have more details to share about the specific benefits of this partnership for PlayStation customers at a later date.
      Um, what? I wrote back: "This is a little disconcerting. Tons of our readers pre-ordered the next-gen Watch Dogs bundles - you guys really don't have an answer for what will happen to their pre-orders? Should they just cancel?

      Ubisoft's second response:

      We hope that players who have pre-ordered the game will still look forward to playing it in Spring 2014, and that the extra polish and quality we’ll be able to add to the game will ensure a fantastic gaming experience.
      The big question here is whether people are still guaranteed their next-gen consoles this fall. Will they have to wait until next year? Will they get some sort of make-up voucher?

      We've reached out to Microsoft and Sony as well, and we'll keep you updated as we hear more.

      Yeah I read further articles that state Amazon will ship your console and game separately. Gamestop will give you/offer the choice of another game to be included in your bundles (the caveat being the og price may change) or getting you the game later...

      Now I have second thought about this game... It is like after Watch Dogs developer saw/played GTA5, they rather not release the game now and redo the game...

      Stuff happens, the places who offered pre-order bundles will either have to give you the option of another game, rain check for the game when it comes out, or drop the price so I don't know what the big deal is. I rarely, if ever, buy a game sight unseen anyway, this one isn't any different. None of the videos I have seen make it look like anything overly special.

      In before the autocross brigade of armchair quarterbacks chime in.

Luckily for gamers, there is almost no doubt that Watch Dogs will actually be released this year, since it has an official launch date for later this spring. A new report that surfaced Monday morning indicates that video game fans might have benefitted from the delay with new content inserted into Watch Dogs during the delay.

      The report cites Ubisoft’s Jonathan Morin who confirms Watch Dogs’ story is about 35-40 hours long depending on how it is played. In order to complete all the activities made available in the open world game, it will take the average player about 100 hours. Considering Watch Dogs’ release date was delayed in order to polish up the open world experience it appears the company made the right call. Stories like Watch Dogs are known to complete in 15-20 hours on average, so Ubisoft took the time to make sure there is plenty of action in and around the virtual version of Chicago.

      As is the case with a growing number of video games these days, Watch Dogs is not a game for the younger among us. At least some of the new Watch Dogs content appears to be of a graphic enough nature that the rating for the game went from a MA15+ to a R18+ by the Australian Classification Board. Polygon reports the Watch Dogs rating changed because at least some of the content that was added included implied sexual violence.

      While implied sexual violence in a video game doesn’t exactly sound all that great, it doesn’t appear Watch Dogs has made this violence gratuitous. Rumors are circulating that some of the added content is that of a mission revolving around a human trafficking ring. If true, Watch Dogs might be offering more than the average video gamer is used to as far as realism goes.

      Watch Dogs, following the story of Aidan Pierce was first set to launch last October but that date was moved back just weeks before it was set to debut. Watch Dogs isn’t you average everyday brawler and the game-play will likely even set it aside from titles like inFamous: Second Son in that regard.

      Watchdogs might be similar to that story in that you are taking on a shady government but in this title you aren’t using super powers. Instead Watchdogs has you doing your good deeds for the people using hacking and surveillance tactics.

      Watchdogs is hitting store shelves for the next-gen consoles, the Xbox 360, the PlayStation 3 and the PC on May 27. A Watch Dogs version for the Wii U is due out sometime later.
      Nice to see the delay was content related, and to have a new official release date! Amazon kept canceling my PC pre-order as the kept removing the game from the digital store, time to try again. Can't wait to play this, and still holding out hope that the division doesn't get pushed to late 2015.

      Edit: PC limited edition is back on amazon, but as a "notify me" item now.

      I've seen some new videos on You Tube lately and is seems like the graphics are more cartoonish now than before. The graphics looked so much better at first and now they look like meh.
