Wouldn't we all. $45 for the deluxe was too good for me to pass on though.Sketchy.. I'd prefer Steam.
So far as I can tell from these streams, the way your hacking capabilities work is:
-Simple mechanical interface stuff like gates, bridges, forklifts, elevators, whatever are just always hackable the moment you encounter them
-For each region, "cloud"-ish stuff like ATMs, cameras, the cell phone profiler, is not hack-active until you hack the local ctOS control center
-More advanced city-wide or OP hacks (like the Blackout) are craftable "items" with a max capacity
Still filling in the blanks but if this is accurate I think they pretty much went about it the best way possible.
