Watch_Dogs (Review for PS3 & Xbox One)
Online Hacking and Online Tailing are the same with only slight differences. Tailing tasks you with simply observing your target, you can use security cameras, sit in a car, you just need to watch them, but you can't be profiled, if the target moves their phone over you it will identify you and at that point you need to get away from them before they kill you. Online hacking has you install a backdoor, and wait for the sensitive information to download, the catch with this is the moment you initiate the hack the player is given a circle to search to find you, for every 25% of the download the search area get's smaller. It's a truly thrilling experience when you hit 75% and the circle is right on top of you, if the player makes you then the goal is the same as it is with tailing, get away without being killed. If you are the victim of a hack you can defend yourself by using Jam Comms, which you can either buy or craft, this will stop the hack momentarily and give you slightly more time to find the hacker. Now for the "exclusive next gen stuff", Online Decryption is pretty simple you and a group of other hackers are tasked with decrypting a piece of information, you all start at random points on the map you need to get the information and then hold on to it long enough to decrypt it. Anytime you have the information everyone will be able to see where you are, if they get close to you they can steal it from you, or they can kill it and take it. If you lose it your progress never goes down, gaining it back will start the decryption from where it was when you lost it, first person to 100% wins. Free Roam is exactly what it sounds like, free roaming think GTA Online. So, Online Decryption isn't all that complicated and if Free Roam is exactly like GTA Online, then why can't it run on 360 or PS3? Because if it did, you wouldn't go out and buy an Xbox One or PS4, holding out content makes people feel like they are missing out, and thus will be more likely to upgrade.
