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

Eurogamer is a little more reserved on the improvements:

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

Review scores seem to be good to above average, but not great.

 

I had a miserable experience last night.  Despite an email from Sony saying it would unlock at 12:01 eastern my copy did not become available until 1:15, I waited until 2:30 where it was about halfway downloaded and went to bed having not played it at all until tonight at the earliest.

 

Full of fail.
