I thought this was pretty cool.

PS3 Collectors Edition ($70) comes with the orginal Hard Boiled movie on the same blu-ray disc as the game.

In addition to the game, which continues the story of Inspector Tequila (Chow Yun-Fat), a PS3 collector's edition ($70) of the game will also include a full-length remastered high-def version of the 1992 film Hard Boiled, the Hong Kong action film starring the character.

PS3 games are stored on Blu-ray discs, which can hold up to 50 Gigabytes of video and game content. A new 15th anniversary DVD will be issued this summer, too the DVD has been out of print for several years.

Forget Home, this is a big deal here.

Can't wait to see Hard Boiled in high-def. Can't believe I have to buy the PS3 version of Strangehold, but eh, could be worse.

Well its the sequel to the movie... It's probably the best CE version of a game in a long time.

I want the game don't get me wrong. It's the fact that I'm being suckered into buying the PS3 version that's getting to me. Was originally planing on buying the PC version. Hopefully the movie is released as a standalone Blu-ray moive in the near future.

Yeah, I want the PC version, too.

Just wait for the movie to be standalone, the PC version's going to be way better. Midway has never been one to **** on pc gamers.

They actually **** on console gamers more than pc gamers.

Think Blitz, blitz 2001, and MK4 on a voodoo 2 compared to the ****ty n64 and ps1 versions.

Think the suffering ties and it's sequel ties that bind.

other than Alone 5, strangle hold is the game i'm most looking forward to in 2007, unless I die or unless alone 5 don't come out this year.

This is one of my most anticipated titles along with BioShock, Alan Wake and Overlord. I will get whatever version is the best (as long as I will own that console...), and I DO hope that the PC one. Regarding the CE, the movie means nothing to me, all I care is the game.

kevJ, that is nonsense. Psi Ops (Midway) was superb on either XBOX or PS2 and it wasn't even released on PC outside Europe.

FYI someone on AVS has started a thread that a PR person from the movie company he emailed said that the movie on the BR disc is in standard resolution. Anyone thinking about buying the CE game because the a HD version of Hard Boiled will be included with it might want to hold off till someone confirms if the movie is in Hi-Def or not.

Well I did notice that in the trailer that's available on PSN, the footage did look like standard def. However when I went on IGN it said that it would be high definition. I guess we'll find out soon.

whats the big deal abt this movie? I remember buying this of the street for INR 100 when it came out in '92. It might still be lying around in my parents' house...lol

Well it's not really a big deal if it is the standard definition version. A lot of people were going to buy the collector's edition of the game because they thought it would come with a High Def version of the Hard Boiled movie on the same disc.

False. Jim from gaming-age.com confirmed with Midway that the movie on the disc is indeed a High Def Remaster.

This is an Unreal Engine 3 game so I have hopes that it will be a better port, Oh and lets not forget that the PS3 version of Oblivion was better on all aspects. ;)

The PS3 version of Oblivion is better... as a result of the dev working on the game for an extra year! Lets all hope that the PS3 version of Stranglehold is not a 360 port!

From all reports they say the games are nearly identical... lets hope thats not just PR BS.
