Watch Dogs producer: sci-fi surveillance tech of the game "exists in the present"

One of the games I’ve been most looking forward to this year (and now next year) is Watch Dogs, both for its non-GTA open world environment and its ludicrous display of hacking and Big Brother omnipresence. An all-seeing security grid is a great sci-fi premise, but according to a new feature at Polygon, Chicago’s real-world surveillance technology is just about as pervasive as the fictional version in Watch Dogs.
