Chicago (IL) – Midway today launched the cinematic shooter game Stranglehold on the Xbox 360.
Stranglehold, making its multi-platform debut on Microsoft’s console, is marketed as a highly cinematic video game as it is a collaboration with action film director John Woo.
Midway has said it expects Stranglehold to be its top-selling game of the holiday season. The game is available in both a standard $60 package as well as a collector’s edition for around $70.
In addition to a PC version on September 18, a Playstation 3 version of the game is also set to launch September 25. A collector’s edition PS3 title will be especially noteworthy, as it contains both the game and a Blu-ray movie version of the John Woo film Hard Boiled, on one disc.
