According to Ubisoft

And they posted this on facebook:

Enjoy your time in beautiful Los Santos. On November 19, we'll see you in Chicago_

Wow, this is some unusual video game marketing. Acknowledging one of your largest competitors in the ad.

If there's one thing Ubisoft have done really well with Watchdogs, it is its marketing.

Definitely will get this on XB1 eventually. Ubisoft is amazing this year. Rayman Legends + AC4 (i.e. Next-Gen Wind Waker) and Watch Dogs all look great.

After experiencing the sunny world of Los Santos, I never want to return to the muddy, drab worlds of NY or Chicago. But ultimately what will determine if I keep playing GTA5 instead of buying Watchdogs will be GTA Online.

Two months is barely any time to spend in Los Santos. Regardless I'll be getting the next-gen version of Watch Dogs as soon as I have a next-gen console. I like the ad even though I don't agree with it haha.

I like it. A bit cheeky but nothing really malicious.

Unless you're offended by the idea of people trading in GTA V in two months time.

Aggressive marketing is best marketing.
But I expect the game to be another bland and soulless mass production like Ubi's other games.

It recognizes, respects, and encourages the competition while still drawing parallels to its own product.

Classy move, Ubisoft. :-)

I like it. It always bugs me when developers don't acknowledge that other games exist. Especially cultural phenomenons such as GTA.

Will be playing this on my PS4 in a couple months for sure (while also playing GTA).

Nice ad, though I feel like Watch_Dogs will be a lot narrower and more focused in it's open world. Aiden probably won't fly a helicopter.

It's also enough time to realise that Watch Dogs' Chicago is nothing but a boring, empty husk devoid of any worthwhile activities.

Ubisoft have pretty much been making all the right moves this year. I like the ad and Watch Dogs is probably going to be the first game I play on my PS4 maybe Resogun, depending on mood.

Would've been nice if they told me why I would want to go to Chicago. Everything I've seen of Watchdogs so far looks like your typical, shallow Ubisoft open world game. Don't think you're a contender just because you're in the same genre.
