    Big news, now you can turn OFF multiplayer to avoid messing up your single player experience. Since another player can sneak into the game, you can choose to hunt him down (steal his Iphone..) killing him or just letting him get away with your data. (money).
    To be honest, i don’t know what really happened to this game since that E3 last year, changed so much in terms of aesthetics. That i lost all the hype.
    But well, if you are interested enough. You have this cool feature, you don’t like the MP. You can turn it off anytime you want.

    To quote:

    A stealthy technological tug-of-war sounds nice and all but how are you supposed to get anything done in Watch Dogs when your friends are constantly dropping by to jack your bank account? Don’t worry: The multiplayer action can be turned off any time.

    “All the online activities are just part of the menu,” said Danny Belanger, Watch Dogs‘ game designer, during a Friday event on Twitch, as reported by Polygon. “They’re a choice. But if someone is not into that… they can totally turn it off.”

    Ubisoft takes a distinctly Dark Souls-style approach to multiplayer in Watch Dogs. While you’re playing as Aiden Pearce, doling out vigilante justice on the streets of Chicago, another player can sneak into the game. It’s your job to hunt the intruder down in the anonymous masses and hack their phone before they do they same to you.

    Watch Dogs is already layered with distractions. During a recent preview event, Joystiq found that the sheer number of side missions and mini-games in the anticipated PlayStation 4 and Xbox One title obscured the drama in the main storyline. Maintaing that “vigilante obsessed with atonement” atmosphere is hard when you’re always pausing to collect golden coins. If real people were constantly dropping into your game it would be even harder, so it’s smart of Ubisoft to make these multiplayer components optional for players of varying tastes.

      It's looking like the best version of this game is going to be for the Wii U, since they've announced they're taking extra time to optimize it and polish it off before they release it for the system. Another finished and non-rushed game for Nintendo. How amusing.

      I will sound like a total ****** but i think the only reason that Watchdogs best version will be for Wii-U, because they *watered down* those damn graphics and focused more on gameplay and system mechanics.
      Last year E3 gameplay demo was not near close of what is today.
      After watching this year trailer, i couldn't help but to ***** about it for what they've done to this game.
