I made up my mind long ago not to preorder Watch Dogs for a few reasons, but mainly because (hear me out) of how Ubisofts games lately (AC series) show the in-game world 'digitally' appearing in front you as part of the experience. Now I've accepted it in the AC series because you're hooked to a VR machine anyway, so it's plausible. But I don't want that extra layer of 'artificial reality' in my games anymore; I'm already in that mindset the moment I click my mouse.

Now this story comes out Video Game Preorders Are Out Of Control and I question if I'll buy WD at all. Bargain bin I guess.

That's funny, cause I just made up my mind to pre-order it. The only thing that had me worried was bugs, and the graphical downgrade. Turns out there's an ultra mode (or w/e) for PC, and the extra time after the delay gave them a fair amount of time to iron it out. AC sort of went downhill, but that seemed to happen b/c they ran out of ideas. Watch Dogs is a fresh IP.
