The lights are on
Watch Dogs is a week and a half a way, and Ubisoft has decided to get mischievous. A video released today shows an elaborate prank used to convince people their phones can hack the city.
I don’t know of anyone that would walk into a small store and hand their phone over (and not test to see if it was actually fixed).
It also isn’t likely that law enforcement would allow traffic lights to be hacked as they are in the game without closing off roads in advance.
But we’ll suspend our disbelief for a bit, because it would be pretty neat if a phone could do some of the things that Aiden Pearce’s can. Watch Dogs will be out on May 27 for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PC. A Wii U version is coming later.
