Shinji Mikami and Suda 51 are some of the greatest developers in modern and decade gaming history. Suda has been known for bringing the PlayStation franchise great games like Killer 7 and Mikami for bringing the legendary Resident Evil series.

Now is a great time to be a PLAYSTATION®3 owner. Dark Sniper holds his PS3 with pride when he becomes one with the system.

PS3 is Dark Sniper, Dark Sniper is PS3.
