The surprise reveal of Rockstar's PS3-only Agent was a welcome change from what was a very leak-ridden Sony press conference – and if the title lives up to the claims of Sam Houser then it could well prove a defining game for the platform.
We have always enjoyed making action games, and with Agent we are making what we believe will be the ultimate action game,” Rockstar's founder Stated.
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.”
Sony's Jack Tretton said of the title during its E3 reveal that he expects Agent to have the same must have value as Grand Theft Auto” – as bold a claim as it gets.
