The Last of Us may have won PSU's E3 2012 Game of Show award, but I'm personally very excited to see more on Ubisoft's open-world surprise Watch Dogs. With a single new screenshot released earlier today, my anticipation has reached fever pitch.

The view from street-level shown below highlights graphical splendor and attention to detail that will likely push current-gen consoles to their limits. You can see sunlight cascading from the windows of an office building and realistic motion blur as the train flies by. You can see stacks of newspapers lying beside a busted receptacle, pedestrians stopping to sit on a bench or send a text message, and the small light from individual bulbs cast a dim aura on the white building at frame's right. You can even see a surveillance camera monitoring the whole scene, which sets the stage for a grim future where privacy doesn't exist and digital information rules the world.

Let us know what you think of this screenshot in the comments below, and stay tuned to PSU for Watch Dog details as they develop.
