I just think that is funny. Cool looking game and all, but...no...that's not what 2027 will look like.
The Original game was created in 1999, and takes place in 2052. It features a far more advanced society. For this game, they weren't saying "this is what it will look like in 17 years", they're saying "This is what it looked like 25 years before Deus Ex", and it does look an awful lot like that.
Context, dude. It's a prequel.
