but think it's more of an issue of 'future then,' wasn't so close vs. 'future now,' in the year 2013, in the post-9/11, post-iPod/Google/Snowden-era, which makes the specificity of the game's particular plots and scenarios seem but a few months away...


Well... okay, so at least now, it's not that difficult to plausibly postulate that such things CAN happen, much sooner, than had someone posed such scenarios say...even in the late 1990's even if, hypothetically speaking, had the same computer graphics tech were to have existed, then.

Plus, the upcount in polygons and GPU speeds yielding more 'realism' add to the supplemental sense of immediacy and perhaps even an urgency.

Though of course, whether all that will translate for their actual intended target audience market (13~43yr olds? Though these days it seems there are hardcore gamers even in their late 40's and perhaps even in early 50's) is wholly another matter; in my personal experience with many technologists, just because they're aware of immediate technological implications and progressions of various tech developments and trends, doesn't mean they 'get' the same within a broader plausible geopolitical context: otherwise all the 'smart' people would've moved on from Keynesian econ long ago. C'est la vie.

Though, purely as a game, without all the geopolitical plot blah blah blah, the game still looks intriguing enough.

Do you play modern video games, or own PS3 or plan on getting PS4 or whatever the new version of Xbox will be?

Would a game like this, be something you'd personally be interested in playing, or purchasing?
