Max Payne on PS2.
Rockstar has informed the press that they are in development of a Playstation 2 version of Max Payne. The action title that takes place in the slums of New York City where crime is high, will be developed by Rockstar's Canadian studio. The game will have the makings of a Hollywood flick, as Rockstar hopes to create a grim and griping story that includes murder and betrayal.
"As one of the first film noir inspired action games, Max Payne is an innovative and incredible new gameplay experience never seen before on the PlayStation 2," Sam Houser, president of Rockstar Games, said. "The line between special effects in movies and videogames is narrowing. The technology behind PlayStation 2 allows us to take action to a level not yet achieved in videogames. With Max Payne, you will see the evolution of gameplay."
Max Payne is scheduled to be released this year.
