Watch Dogs creator Ubisoft has today revealed a lengthy nine minute video aimed at giving potential players a bit of a head start in the digital world of Chicago when it comes to hacking.

The video takes a peak into the hacking of protagonists Aiden Pearce, and just how you'll go about interacting with the world to make it do what you want, when you want. This includes using certain city functions to your advantage when on the chase by police, or simply topping up your bank account with the help of a friendly and unaware citizen. All of that and more can be found in the video below.

Ubisoft isn't stopping there with Watch Dog news, revealing a rather large and descriptive blog today about everything you'll be able to do come May 27th. Alongside what you can do in the virtual world, Watch Dogs creative chief Jonathan Morin has confirmed that the PlayStation 4 version will run at 900p, while the Xbox One version will run at a rather odd resolution of 792p. Both however will output at 30 frames per second.

"Resolution is a number, just like framerate is a number. All those numbers are valid aspects of making games," he said.

"But you make choices about the experience you want to deliver. In our case, dynamism is everything. Exploration and expression are everything. You want to have a steady framerate, but you want to have dynamism at the core of the experience. The same goes with resolution."

Watch Dogs will be available on May 27th for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One and Xbox 360. A Wii U version will be available later this year.

Guys guys, let us put a little attention to something here yet again (I need to do this because I knew this would happen and it's highly entertaining making a point out of it.)

900p and 800p game running at 30fps on the new consoles. Next gen technology.

/guys guys

Looking forward to playing this in 1080p @ 60 fps with MSAA turned down I guess.

The new consoles are fail.

I still can't see what the game has to offer past about 30-60 minutes of play. Must be some integral thing they haven't shown yet.. If it was MMO based, that would be a different story.

How much does a PC capable of running Watch Dogs at a solid frame rate at 1080p cost roughly? I reckon it'd be more than the $500ish consoles cost.

edit: this game excites me because it reminds me of Deus Ex and I've been chasing the Deus Ex dragon since the year 2000.

A computer capable of reaching 1080p 60FPS would be roughly $800-$1000AUD. My 770 will be able to hit that margin and that was $485 from Umart, so put in a HDD ($70ish for 2TB), PSU ($100), MOBO ($120) and a case ($80) you'd be looking at roughly $855 on crappy estimates.

And a CPU presumably.

The game looks great i guess this will make me happy until/if ever GTA 5 comes to PC

Once the game comes out we will see comparisons of this nature but I think a $600 system will chew through this game at 900 res with higher frames. Speculation until then.

What isn't speculation is these consoles aren't doing much better than the last gen, but the last gen was many years old.. There was 3 major buzzwords accompanying these consoles: 1080, 60fps, NextGen. - Not seeing much of any of it.

Die consoles, everyone get PC's mk.

Edit: Sucks for Sony that once something is on the net, it stays on the net. Sony has since tried to pull this one down.

Hardly any money was put into the graphics for the new consoles, they seem to be planning for a future of streaming games or something. It's kinda stupid.

We should be easily expecting 1080p MINIMUM for the new gen of consoles. I've been running games at least 1600x1200 since 2003, now 1920x1200 and I've never had to dip below that. That's so embarrassing I don't know whether to laugh or cry.

NextGen was designed to be cheap though - they haven't had the $1K price tag as the PS1-3 did for example.

Below 1080p @ 30 fps is quite poor though. I actually think it is the developer dropping the ball on this one.

That video looks much better then the one I saw on the Steam page, I thought it looked s*** but I'm rethinking that now.

"Resolution is a number, just like framerate is a number. All those numbers are valid aspects of making games,"

My middle finger is a number, the number of the bird. All my middle fingers are valid responses to bulls*** like this.

Remember when people thought the PS4 would introduce 4K gaming?

Probably how much you spend on games for it by the end of its life.

There were a few idiots thinking this yes.
