Watch Dogs Closed-Door Gameplay Walkthrough Now Available For All

Back in May, I travelled to Paris in order to preview Watch Dogs, but now you can watch largely the same gameplay demonstration I did (though with a few differences due to the systemic nature of Ubisoft's upcoming hacker sandbox). It's a great opportunity to see the interplay of combat, stealth, driving, hacking and traversal in action - and giving players real choice about how to best bring down the corrupt corporations dominating near-future Chicago.

Did anyone else notice that graffiti/poster at 10:03 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=TRAzrwRZ-T4#t=603)

I really want this game to be good but I feel it may end up being a bit too ambitious for the developers.
For example, if ctOS picks up all this portential criminal behaviour, how is it that Aiden can drive like a maniac, speeding and running red lights, yet still not get picked up by the system?

AFAIK Aiden kind of ambiently hacks ctOS so that cameras and security systems don't pick him up, or take longer to do so, at least that's the impression I got when having a chat with some of the devs.

"Ambitious" is a bit of an understatement, to be honest. This is a momentous undertaking, and I hope that Watch Dogs manages to fulfil its potential.

I do wonder how big the Chicago map area will be, though. They've been pretty cagey about that thus far. Chicago is a very dense and 'stacked' city with multiple levels, so hopefully there'll be plenty to explore.
