"Microsoft today told the world’s gamers when they’ll be able to get hold of the latest and greatest Xbox, and how much they’ll have to pay for the privilege: this November, and $499, respectively.

To quote: Nik here, it's nice to get another opportunity to chat with you guys. Today we're digging a bit deeper into the human puzzle that is Aiden Pearce by launching our World Premiere Gameplay Trailer.
Here you'll get to know Aiden a bit better, and most importantly, you'll discover what drives him to do the things he does. You'll get a good picture of how he uses the city of Chicago against those who crossed him... and you'll see how far he will go to make them pay.
We're also happy to announce that Watch_Dogs now has an official launch date - the game will be available on PS3 starting November 19th. (We'll be back to talk about the PS4 version and its release timing at a later date.)
