Move over Sam Fisher.

Quote from the article "with Agent we are making what we believe will be the ultimate action game,” said Sam Houser, Founder of Rockstar Games. “Agent is a game we have wanted to make for a long time. The team in Edinburgh is doing an amazing job combining intense action, atmosphere and story in a great period setting to create something that feels quite unique. We cannot wait for people to experience this game.”

Thank God this is exclusive. Once Sony and Rockstar develop this game to be another success like GTA. MS will try to get it as well.

I'm amazed that people are ignoring this MEGATON announcement in favor of arguing about how "Alan Wake has the best graphics I've seeeeen". I mean, let's not even mention the fact that S-E also announced an exclusive MMO for the PS3...

Seriously, what does Microsoft have to show in response to this? Anything? Bueller?

LightofDarkness3425d ago

I'm amazed that people think this is a megaton announcement. For one, they haven't shown ANYTHING AT ALL. No screens, no gameplay details, nothing. Just the setting. The only great thing they've ever done is GTA, and even then, everyone has been heavily criticizing GTA IV. But I suppose we can all ignore that now simply because they're a PS exclusive developer again.

I can't be excited for this yet. Sounds like a good premise for a video-game, that's it. This is akin to me telling you my awesome idea for a videogame but having nothing to show for it. Not exactly the saem, but similar.

@ LightofDarkness

Wow. I can respect your opinion and all, but you must have high standards for what classifies as a "megaton announcement".

Rockstar is one of the biggest companies this generation (and of last generation) due to Grand Theft Auto. GTA4 is one of the highest-rated and highest-selling games of this gen (though it wasn't my personal cup of tea).

So, announcing an exclusive from such a company IS a megaton, no matter how you look at it. If FF13 going multiplatform (not even EXCLUSIVE, just multiplatform) can be considered a megaton at last year's E3, I'm puzzled why an exclusive Rockstar game doesn't qualify as a "megaton".

Again, I respect your opinion. I just don't understand it.

"how "Alan Wake has the best graphics I've seeeeen""

Alan Wake is the last desperate game to cling to for Xbox fans. If it had looked like Pong it would have still be proclaimed "best graphics ever seeeeen".

If Alan Wake didn't exist and all Microsoft had in its place was Barbie's Horse Adventures for the Xbox 360 then Barbie's Horse Adventures would be claimed to have the "best graphics ever seeeeen".

SuperM3425d ago

GTA4 was limited by 360. Thats why people criticize it. This one however wont be limited, thus it will be the most awesome thing ever to happen in the gaming world since GTA3.

cmrbe3425d ago

I think because those other people don't know that its being develop by Rockstar North with Dans full support. I am sure they don't know the significance of this.

A PS3 exclusive develop to the full potential of the PS3 develop by Rockstar North is full of win.

Pandemic3425d ago

Another AAA Title for the Playstation 3, especially when its being created by Rockstar.

LightofDarkness3425d ago (Edited 3425d ago )

Well, to me, it's all about how much space such a game is going to occupy on your radar. It depends on how big the game is, not just how big the developer is. And this game is a brand new IP with little to no information known about it. I'm not going to think about it at all really until more information is released. They could have a megaton unveiling at TGS or Leipzig, but until then I can't care much about it.

@Vicodin: AW looks good, great for a 360 game. It's just that it can't hold a candle (pun!) to the PS3 exclusive library.

Jinxstar3425d ago (Edited 3425d ago )

I still want MS to confirm Alan Wake was running on 360 hardware. They have done things at their conference before that have run off windows and used a 360/xbox controller... I will say for the 360 it looked like the best game running on that hardware.... hardly comparable to the scale and graphics of GOW 3 or KZ2 imo but fans will buy it up. It's also coming to windows so... Either way I thought I might buy it for PC before they showed gameplay and I don't feel like another Alone in the Dark game...

On Topic: I am excited to see what this Agent game has in store. Redemtion looks amazing so far and I can't wait to see what they can do with an exclusive

You will never understand because you will never see why PS3 fans like me see why PS3 exclusives are superior.

Rockstar North now has the hardware plus Sony support. Sam said it himself. This is the game they always wanted to make. Meaning, get ready for something great.

Quick question:

How much footage of GTAIV was shown when Peter Moore showed off his GTAIV tattoo at E3?

raztad3425d ago

GTA4 is pure crap. Nor fun at all, but GTA4 is the exception not the rule. Previous GTA games (and the DS's) are awesome. I've not doubts about Rockstar talent and if they are partnering with Sony, Im sure Agent will be THE GAME from Rockstar.

Agent is indeed a Meganton one, but it was shadowed by the others :D because it lacked of, at least, a small trailer.

ThanatosDMC3424d ago

So if it's not like GTA... does that mean i cant go on my killing sprees anymore? I thought it was open world. Oh well, guess we'll have to wait for more info.

All-33424d ago

I wouldn't be surprised if it's only a timed exclusive - and will end up for the PC as well.

Marceles3424d ago (Edited 3424d ago )

Guys be real...if this was announced on the 360, fanboys would've been rubbing this in just like all of the other multiplatform games.

"We have Modern Warfare 2, Alan Wake, L4D2, Beatles Rock Band, Natal, AND AGENT EXCLUSIVE! MS WON!"'s a PS3 exclusive so everyone all of a sudden has amnesia.

I'm so looking forward to this.

xdye0173425d ago

'the people behind Grand Theft Auto, R* north' actually the real people behind GTA went to realtime works who are making APB and made Crackdown.

GWAVE3425d ago

Hmmm. Didn't they just announce that APB was NOT coming to the 360? An honest question, because it could have just been a rumor...

snipermk03425d ago

well, I guess the team was brain dead once they joined realtime works cos it shows from the difference in gameplay between GTA and crackdown.

Hellsvacancy3425d ago

Is it a Pc or Ps3 game (as u just said it wasnt on the 360)

Struz3425d ago (Edited 3425d ago )

It's a grand theft auto style MMO game where turf wars happen. PC (Windows) only.

SuperM3425d ago

The people behind the original GTA yes. But GTA only became the huge franchise it is after GTA3, and those people are still working at R*north
