Watch Dogs

Fortunately, the members of the public don’t pull out guns and start shooting at the police. That would be a bit much.

This promotional stunt is a bit of a treat: Ubisoft have tried out the Watch Dogs hacking in real-life.

They wait for punters in a phone repair store, fix the phone, and install a “hacking” app. The storeowner then shows off how it works by unlocking cars, turning off streetlights, changing traffic lights… and accidentally causing quite a lot of mayhem. And then the police show up.

In short, if you like hidden camera videos featuring unsuspecting members of the public in ridiculous situations, this is a fantastic thing to watch. And/or incredibly cruel. And/or hilarious. Give it a look below.

Open-world hack-‘em-up Watch Dogs is due out on 27 May. We will, with a bit of luck, have a review up around that time.
