  • Powered by the Disrupt Engine, which enables “gray zone” morality decisions
  • Aiden Pierce (the game’s protagonist) can manipulate the environment at any time
  • The scene from E3 2012 where Piece hacked a traffic signal causing an accident could play out in multiple ways
  • In one example during Game Informer’s demo, Colin Graham the lead animator for Watch_Dogs who was playing the demo pulled out a gun which caused some people to hide and others to call police. Supposedly this is just the bare minimum of what the AI can do
  • Cars can show realistic wear & tear and have paint peeling off
  • GI’s demo was from the area called The Wards which is based on poor districts of Chicago
  • When Pierce hacks into the city’s server he gets control over phones, cameras, and the “predictive crime system”
  • That system is designed to signal police and Pierce to where crime may happen and who might be involved
  • You can intervene whenever you want, but reactions from NPCs can change depending on when you do things and what you do
  • Citizens will talk about Pierce in random conversations and on social media in-game
  • The actions you take will play into an overall reputation and your reputation with different factions as well

“Explore the world with Wii Street U powered by Google, only on Wii U! This piece of software is free to download for a limited period of time, and allows you to see places all over the world from the comfort of your own home. Simply tap in a place name – or even co-ordinates – on the Wii U GamePad and (where available) you’ll see a bird’s-eye view map on your TV, and the view from the ground on the GamePad. Motion controls allow you to use the GamePad intuitively to alter your viewpoint – move it up, down, and all around you to get a better perspective!

With a software update that’s available now your Wii Street U experience becomes even easier to use, and has more great features than before. The update adds Miiverse functionality, allowing you to write about your favourite spots on Miiverse, and post or view screenshots, from within Wii Street U powered by Google itself*. Create bookmarks for places that you’ll want to come back to at the touch of a button, add Miiverse-supported tags to your bookmarks, see a location’s elevation, and even check which way is north using the on-screen compass! It’s even easier to explore on the ground because the handy Street View Guide (the line that shows all the paths you can follow) will turn a darker shade when you’ve already been somewhere. To help you keep track of all these new features, handy hints will display as your application loads to help you get to grips with the new stuff.


To get the software update, ensure you’ve performed the latest system update (get info on system updates at our Support section) and simply launch Wii Street U powered by Google. If you’ve not yet downloaded the software, make sure you have the latest system update and the version you can download will have the update built in! Head out on a world tour with Wii Street U powered by Google, available for free from Nintendo eShop on Wii U for a limited time.”

Sega sold 1.31 Million units for the maligned Aliens: Colonial Marines according to a report on NeoGAF. They also sold 1.36 Million units for Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed. Those were their top 2 titles for  FY 2013. For next fiscal year, Sega is planning to release 42 SKUs by the end of Fiscal Year 2014 according to this report posted on NeoGAF.

The breakdown of SKUs by platform is:

  • PS3 -7
  • Wii – 0
  • Wii U – 7
  • XB360 – 4
  • NDS – 0
  • 3DS – 6
  • PSP – 2
  • PSV – 5
  • PC – 11

Interesting to see that Xbox 360 is scheduled for fewer SKUs than Wii U & PS3. Perhaps this means Sega will be bringing other titles to the Next Xbox for FY 2014. Also PS4 was not listed either. You can view more financial info over on NeoGAF, which is linked below.
