''At last year’s E3, Ubisoft created a lot of buzz with the reveal of their next franchise, Watch Dogs. Its setting, plot and concept grabbed the attention of the audience because after all, its concept is extremely relevant to modern day issues. The demo shown allowed the game to convey its general themes and tone to the audience thanks, in part, to its pace and atmosphere. And the demo focused on the hacking aspect of Watch Dogs, also. In summary, the buzz it generated was immense.''
