E3 2009: Rockstar Exclusive Coming to PS3

rockstar Something I neglected to include in our first day of E3 news was Rockstar’s announcement of a PS3-exclusive title named Agent (not to be confused with Sony Online’s near-vaporware The Agency). 

1UP’s got a brief write-up on the title complete with quotes from Rockstar founder Sam Houser.  Apparently, Rockstar’s Edinburgh team has been working hard on Agent, a tale of adventure, assassins, and espionage set in the 1970s. 

I don’t doubt that this will be another solid entry in Rockstar canon.  Manhunt, while mildly controversial, featured some excellent sneaking mechanics (not Sneak King mechanics) that were implemented with much success into their take on The Warriors

Maybe if Sony would suck it up and announce a console price drop I could allow myself to get excited about this title.  Actual PS3 owners, however, should definitely look out for this one.
