    It's definitely an image from Infamous: SS. I looked at some other images and the jacket emblem on the back the character is from I:SS.

    Yeah, Watch_Dogs takes place in Chicago, inFamous: Second Son takes place in Seattle. That is definitely not Seattle.

    Easy to make the mistake if you ask me. They are both open world games that take place in a big city and the colour palettes look similar.

    I think that's part of the reason why I have so little interest in nearly all of these kinds of games: they look and play the same. Sure, Watch_Dogs has hacking (OMG!) but its basically the same as everything else.

    Same. I loved infamous 1 and 2. Good storyline. I'm more excited about the prospect of Dishonored 2, though they say q4 2015 right now.

    The PC version of this title does look impressive, but I wonder what level of rig a person has to be running to get all of that detail?

    They talked about how those who picked apart the 'graphics' as a downgrade in an earlier trailer were fools, and how this game looks better than they hoped in the final product (on PS4) . and having seen PS4 footage, it does look damn good. Those extra 6 months to finetune this thing seems to have paid off

    I still don't get the appeal of this. Aren't there enough open world action games that do 90% of the stuff that this game does, minus hacking stuff?

    This video compares Watch Dogs to GTA IV (4) on a PC.



    It's not that pretty for Watch Dogs on graphic design and nature of the world.
    I haven't played yet... I'll have my PS4 copy at some point, but everything I'm reading isn't making me just rip to go get one
