Watch Dogs Gets 'Hyper-Connected Experimental Website' Called 'WeareData'

Ubisoft has today launched a new 'hyper-connected experimental website' for Watch_Dogs known as 'WeareData', designed to "gather and graph the publicly available data that govern people’s lives in a single location." Initially, the site is available only in Berlin, London and Paris.
But what's the point? Apparently, it's to show visitors to the site that Watch_Dogs' hyper-connected fictionalised realisation of Chicago, run by ctOS (Central Operating System) is already a reality and "that everything is truly connected."
"The amount of and potential uses for public and personal information that is readily available online has never been more relevant, as evidenced by today’s headlines," reads the press release. "WeareData is designed to provide a glimpse into this reality and to give visitors a new perspective on the cities in which they live."
In addition to all that there's also "geo-localised social media activities for the cities’ residents, including their public posts on Facebook, Foursquare, Instagram and Twitter."
It all sounds a bit weird. Find out more in the video below. Watch_Dogs is out in November, and you can read our E3 preview here.
