To quote: Watch_Dogs's dark vision of technological totalitarianism is heading to PS3 and PS4, and we were lucky enough to see the first live gameplay demo in San Francisco earlier this week (played on a DualShock 4, no less!). We've carefully studied the footage, asked pressing questions, and present you with this breakdown.
1. Aiden Pierce isn't your typical videogame protagonist

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.)
In addition, those of you who pre-order at GameStop will also get an exclusive Watch_Dogs poster, designed by the legendary comic book artist Alex Ross. The poster's design is the inspiration behind the game's box art and captures the essence of our hero, Aiden Pearce.
That's the last of our announcements for now, but you can look forward to even more...
