||Prepare to pay a visit to London’s underworld! Sony Computer Entertainment America will launch The Getaway, only on PlayStation 2, at Metreon - A Sony Entertainment Center in San Francisco on Friday, January 17 from 6 - 10pm.
|One of the most ambitious projects in videogame history, The Getaway blurs the line between cinema and games and delivers a photo-realistic gameplay environment. Meet Brendan McNamara, Director of The Getaway, as well as several key actors from the game. They will all be available for interviews, autographs and pictures from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. but the event will last until 10 p.m.
|Due to the mature nature of The Getaway, an adult must accompany gamers under the age of 17.
|The Getaway is the story of two men from opposite sides of the law. Mark Hammond, an ex-bank robber and gangster, is on the run for the murder of his wife. Frank Carter, a vigilante copper, was suspended from the Flying Squad. Both men, manipulated by Charlie Jolson, a notorious crime boss of London’s East End, are desperate to clear their names.
