At times being a game journalist has its perks. You may remember the free Xbox 360 given a couple years to all attendees of the Microsoft press conference at E3, or Sony dropping a year of PlayStation Plus on those that were present at its own presser. More recently, everyone that attended the PS4's official press presentation in New York received the console with his name engraved on the HDD bay, even if that one could easily be interpreted as a review unit.
Apparently Ubisoft might have gone down that way at a recent press event in Paris, designed to showcase Watch_Dogs. Some attendees allege having received an Asus Nexus 7 tablet as part of the event's "asset kit."
