Collector's edition "Strangleholds" the PS3

stranglehold1If revenge films filled with over-the-top action sequences and doves fill you with some jolly glee, then you may find that owning a PS3 may also fit that bill. Midway and Sony have partnered up for a special edition of the Midway – John Woo Tiger Hill Entertainment third-person shooter, Stranglehold.

The collector’s edition, a PS3 exclusive, will utilize Blu-ray to combine the game with Woo’s full-length 1992 action flick, Hard Boiled. It’ll be in limited quantity and will retail for $69.95.

stranglehold2The regular editions of Stranglehold will be heading to the PC and Xbox 360 and all will be released sometime this summer. The game will serve as a sequel of sorts to Hard Boiled with actor Chow Yun-Fat reprising his role as Inspector Tequila Yuen. Stranglehold will be Midway’s first game utilizing the Unreal Engine 3.

The John Woo title will take place in Hong Kong and Chicago. While it maybe sometime till Max Payne 3 comes out for special effects/action game fans, Stranglehold will fill that hole by using its own slow-mo frame system called "Tequila Time".
