Think E3 is easy?
Watch here on E3 week and see how much exercise I do.
A closer look at Watch_Dogs was a definite highlight of last week's PlayStation 4 reveal, with Ubisoft opening the floodgates on the cyberpunkish Big Brother-inspired title. Since then, we've got an open world trailer to share, new box art to ogle, and a bit of a conspiracy theory thanks to a viral website.One thing to come out of the press conference is that Watch_Dogs will be an early title for the PS4, as well as for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC. Another is that there's now a pesky underscore in the title - something mirrored in the freshly-unveiled box art for the game, which looks marginally less generic than we'd anticipated, but still less unique than we'd hoped.
Meanwhile, eagle-eyed gamers spotted a URL tucked away into that trailer up there, pointing to http://chicago-ctos.com/. Visitors to that site are greeted with a black page with the inevitable lo-fi ASCII text announcing the page has been taken over by "DedSec". It looks like the site's been hacked - but has it?

...that is, "Who will guard the guards themselves?" or, more familiarly, "Who watches the watchmen?"
I like video games, fishing, Depeche Mode, long walks on the beach, writing discussion papers and cups of tea. Not necessarily in that order.
