Digital Illusions reveal Mirror's Edge, a console-only shooter

Shooters! They're everywhere, like a hail of bullets aimed straight for your wallet. Most of them suffer from the "well, we're best on PC" virus, so getting word of a new shooter that has its crosshairs exclusively locked onto consoles is always fantastic news. Developers of the Battlefield titles, Digital Illusions, revealed a console-only (PS3 and 360) FPS titled Mirror's Edge that is supposedly going to shake up the genre.

Supposedly, it's going to have a cyberpunk design to it. In anime terms, think Lain except replace all philosophical and existential mumbo jumbo with explosions. If that doesn't do it for you, then maybe the anime Texhnolyze would be a better comparison. There aren't many cyberpunk movies out there besides the Matrix. So, from Digital Illusions, we'll have Battlefield: Bad Company and the futuristic Mirror's Edge to choose from. Pick your poison, or bullet.

2. "that is supposedly going to shake up the genre."

Don't all shooters try and say that. In the end they are all shooters. Bioshock claims to be original but it is still just a shooter. MOA:Airborne claims to be original but it still just a shooter.

There gets a point when you cannot expand upon what is being done. I mean look at how tv has gone in the last couple of years. There are just repeats and repeats of the same shows like CSI, Law and Order etc...

Everything is plateauing!
