In the wake of last month's announcement that "Watch Dogs" (officially stylized as "Watch_Dogs," but that's dumb) was coming to the PlayStation 4, Ubisoft were kind enough to release another trailer for the game. If you've been paying attention (and if you haven't, don't worry -- I'll include links), you'll realize that this latest piece of whiz-bang marketing is actually just re-packaged stuff from about a month ago.
In this most recent trailer, for example, noted anti-hero and Jim-Caviezel-from-"Numbers" clone Aiden Parker steals two grand from a tobacco exec, smashes a domestic abuser with a billy stick, and crashes a cop car, all while government officials track his movements and wring their hands.
Parker is a hacker extrordinaire, and his incursions into Chicago's city-wise CtOS system are a big problem. He's presented as anti-social and disruptive -- to all the people on the train he derails, he's got to be a grade-A jerk.
