I'm looking forward to smart cities. I'm guessing San Francisco will be one of the first up for that.

Oh heck yeah... can't wait for these things to spread beyond Vegas:

Too bad Hollerith machines couldn't be hacked as easily as the stuff in Watch Dogs.

LOOL what that isnt really qualified as smart, i think NYC or Chicago is the better option lmaoo

Seoul would most likely become the first truly smart city. Take a look at what they already have going on there and the plans for future development.

Love seeing games contextualized with real-world developments. Very cool.

"You have an agent that watches the city — no different from the agent that watches you, but it’s vastly more powerful"

This is not exactly instilling confidence in people to trust devices like kinect, an be all for smart cities. Once again, the message is fumbled over private security.

Cant ps eye spy on you same way kinect can? And my kinect is unplugged, and if my ps4 was mandotaroy with my ps4 it too would be unplugged. People on here act like they cant unplug it.

Guess I'll stick to that backwoods country life. I already feel like large business and government control too much of our lives already. Though the game sounds like a lot of fun and I can't wait to play it!
