“We all have a bit of voyeurism in us”- Kevin Shortt on hacking and information security in Watch_Dogs

I got the opportunity to sit down with Lead writer for Watch Dogs, Kevin Shortt.  In this 19 minutes video we take a look at some of the details on the game, but also dig deep into topics of information security, the commoditization of otherwise deeply personal information, voyeurism, the power of convenience, and how NPCs are more than just background noise in this title.  Also embedded in our interview is some brand new footage of the game in motion.

What about you?  Are you security conscious with your information?

Watch Dogs is releasing on May 27th on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC, with the Wii U following in the fall.
