Stranglehold is gold on Xbox 360; worldwide release dates confirmed

Midway just sent out a press release in which the publisher states that the Xbox 360 version of John Woo Presents: Stranglehold is now officially gold. This means development on the game is completely finished, and the only thing left now is printing the game. Midway also revealed the final release dates for all platforms for both the US and Europe.

The Xbox 360 version of Stanglehold is released first, on September 5 in America, followed by Europe on September 14. Next is the PC versions which will hit retail on September 18 in the US followed by Europe on September 21. Last, but certainly not least, is the Playstation 3 version, which will be released on September 25 in the US and 'sometime' in October in Europe.

Midway has high hopes for John Woo's Stranglehold, which is also considered as the sequel to John Woo's Hard Boiled movie. Stranglehold will be available in both a normal and a Special Edition version for both the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 versions. The Xbox 360's Special Edition features a second DVD with lots of extras such as 'Behind the Scenes' material. The Playstation 3's Special Edition will come with the Blu-Ray version of John Woo's Hard Boiled movie.

Its kinda of cool in one way but in another it just sucks so bad. Definately going to rent in but thats all...

Not sure which system will be better, most likely 360 just because that seems to be the norm lately. But then again if you have a Ps3 you should be playing another game :)

This game looked ok at e3-2005, but now its just looks like a terrible version of Max Payne....and with games like Heavenly Sword on the way this action adventure game is just old, outdated, and obsolete...

You should try the demo's pretty fun. I'm not sure I'll get it right away but it'll fill in that early winter game drought.

Double-Edged4068d ago

but i'd rather play this than the ugly reviews of Lair and HS.

Downloaded the Strangle Hold demo.... Good for rent..not for buy

If i've ever seen one. The only person who would say that is an xbot fanboy troll like yourself! Lair has gotten mixed reviews i admit, but HS has gotten nothin but 7-10 reviews all day. And only some random site gave HS a 7.5, the rest have been 80% - 100%, so you need to rethink your comments and become more educated and informed about the actual facts b4 you make stupid fanboy flame comment like this!

Double-Edged4067d ago

your a n00b here in N4G.

if my comment was too fanboyish for you.
Get out of here.
You don't have a clue what a fanboy is yet.
Stupid n00b.

I have to say if there is one sure fire way to show me that you have a child's mentality is to use the word "noob". When I read online posts and game forums and run across this word the first thing that comes to mind is "complete [email protected] idiot".

Goshyujin_Sama4067d ago

I c I got your pantiies in a bunch, well can just untangle them and stop the PMS. Your comment was ultimate fanboy troll material at its best. You post a flame comment about HS and Lair, two of PS3's highly anticipated games in a Stranglehold forum. Go be more noob plzz.....Dont deny it, its ok, your a fanboy trolll and thats all you will ever be. Dont be mad, just accept it....

Double-Edged4067d ago

your the n00b who replied to my comment.

whatever makes you happy.. i just dont want you to leave with an angry face...

I thought the demo was awesome! I've played through it a bunch of times. Each time I see something new or find a way to kill with more style points. This game has ultimate replay ability. I usually hate 3rd person shooters!

Dannagar4067d ago

It's funny to see all these people judging a game before its even out. Midway spent 30 million on this game. I'm sure it will be good. But who knows, Midway has a habbit of putting crap out on the Market.

BLACKJACK VII4067d ago (Edited 4067d ago )

Not impressed with the demo at all, looks like rental for me. After playing it, I don't understand where the '30 million' went. Good luck with this one Midway....
