Watch Dogs, the game about hacking, has itself been hacked. Well, not quite, but we like the image. Anyway, it has had a lot more footage leak out, this time from the Xbox 360 version.
We’ve previously seen some leaked footage of the PS4 version in action, but that was quickly pulled. But the new-gen versions are the ones Ubisoft has been spruiking endlessly: we already know those are going to be pretty. The dirty laundry we want aired is how well the game runs and looks on the Xbox 360 and PS3.
First up, courtesy of All Games Beta, we have the opening cinematic, which sets up the story and this near-future world well, and doesn’t look too bad on the 8-year-old beast.
Next, Youtuber Mugen Fantasy has over 40 minutes of Watch Dogs gameplay footage, also from the Xbox 360 version. It’s a little hard to get an idea of the visual quality of the game here, because these clips are captured from a live stream.
There’s plenty more where that came from over on Mugen Fantasy’s YouTube channel, and the site they were pulled from – Cyber Game TV – seems to intermittently stream the game. When I started writing this, Watch Dogs was being played, but last I checked it wasn’t. It’ll probably be back on later, if you want to try your luck.
Watch Dogs will arrive on PC, PS4, Xbox One, PS3 and Xbox 360 on May 27. A Wii U version is due to follow at some unspecified point in the future.
How much do visuals matter to you? Will you be picking up the new or old gen version?
