Watch_Dogs Free-Roaming Footage

A video preview on IGN offers a look at free-roaming gameplay in Watch_Dogs/Watch Dogs, showing off the open-world aspects of the hacking game. They demonstrate the kind of off-mission mischief the player can get into, and take two separate opportunities to tout the game's superiority on "next-generation" consoles, so take two shots if you're playing the next-gen drinking game. There's a similar clip on Hardware Heaven that concludes with a developer interview discussing the game (this may be a tough listen, as the studio part is a bit harsh, while the interview suffers from horrible background noise).

There are plenty of graphical elements that improve gameplay you know think out side the box.

Take your own advice. Games are already incredibly expensive to produce and the market can't really bear an increase in that regard. I'm all for visual frills, just not when they come at the expense of other parts of the game. The industry needs a settling period for developers to get used to the newer tools and for development costs to come down. If they can eke out some visual frills without upping the costs too much then great but otherwise the market will literally not bear more expensive costs for a AAA game.
And they have had that for the entire Xbox 360 and PS3 generation. They aren't making a dramatic leap forward and they haven't recently, they are being cheap bastards. I don't think you realise the MASSIVE talent in Eastern Europe and Asian at the moment. A lot of smaller companies out source to third parties for DIRT cheap.

Go have a look at CryTek's Sanbox, have a play around. The tools are HERE and they are amazing tools. You don't need to be that talented to create amazing looking levels. It takes bugger all time to learn and play. The Bar has been dropped dramatically and you are okay with that? I know it can be raised higher and now. I'm just saying they should do what they can.

I don't understand one minute you guys hate publishers, the next your like "Oh no I agree with Steve from EA accounting, we just cant afford to make good quality games".
