Curious what next generation video games will look like? It’s hard to say until we’ve seen an official demonstration of a completed game, but for now, we have ways to get an idea. The best two examples came at E3 when we saw the first footage from upcoming games Watch Dogs and Star Wars 1313—both of which are assumed to be next-gen games.
