Today's PlayStation 4 reveal didn't linger on hardware much, instead boasting a string of big launch (or near-launch?) games. One of those is Ubisoft's Watch Dogs, which we previously confirmed will be coming to PC as well. A gameplay demo from the event gives us our best look since the E3 demo, showing hero Aiden Pearce using his wireless hack-o-matic to clear paths as he chases down and beats a criminal, then parkours away from the police.

"Suggested Action: Catch the criminal" reads the UI after he tracks down the violent stalker. Seems like a good plan, UI.

Tyler grew up in Silicon Valley alongside Apple and Microsoft, playing games like Zork and Arkanoid on the early personal computers his parents brought home. He was later captivated by Myst, SimCity, Civilization, Command & Conquer, Bushido Blade (yeah, he had Bleem!), and all the shooters they call "boomer shooters" now. In 2006, Tyler wrote his first professional review of a videogame: Super Dragon Ball Z for the PS2. He thought it was OK. In 2011, he joined PC Gamer, and today he's focused on the site's news coverage. After work, he practices boxing and adds to his 1,200 hours in Rocket League.
