Take 2 have sent us this press release which announces that their 3D action game, Mafia, is set for the PlayStation 2 and the Xbox later this year...
London, United Kingdom - 4th June 2003 - Computer and video game publisher Gathering, a subsidiary of Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: TTW0) today announced Mafia for the PlayStation 2 computer entertainment system and the Xbox video game system from Microsoft.
You choose a life with the Salieri family and the cops and feds will be the least of your problems. Expect a hail of bullets from a Tommy gun or a shotgun in the face over linguine.
The city of Lost Heaven is at war as the Salieri and Morello mobs fight to control the lucrative protection rackets, smuggling and the women of Lost Heaven.
Join the Mob - you've got no choice, unless you think choosing death is a smart move! Mafia grabs you by the lapels and plunges you into the middle of a vicious and deadly turf war. The cops, the feds, the Morello family - each of them are out to get you and none of them care how they take you down.
Launched on the PC in 2002, Mafia received universal worldwide acclaim with its blend of action and plot driven narrative. With Mafia, living out your wise guy ambitions could not be easier.
"Shipping on both PlayStation 2 and Xbox in Fall 2003, Mafia has been enhanced to deliver a console experience that will make the Cosa Nostra look like a bunch of choirboys," said Graeme Struthers, Vice President of Gathering. "Mafia recreates the heyday of the mob in stunning detail and puts the gamer right in the heart of the action."
