Following months of confusion, Evil Avatar has received confirmation that the PS3 version of the Stranglehold Special Edition
will be getting a fully remastered HD version of the John Woo classic, Hardboiled
. When it was originally announced
, Midway didn't actually clarify whether the movie would be in standard DVD definition or if it would be in full sexy 1080p. Things were compounded when a trailer for the Stranglehold SE
edition came out on the PSN and showcased some video clips of Hardboiled
-- looking decidely low-rez (like VHS low-rez).
Luckily, Midway has clarified that we will indeed be getting a remastered HD version of the movie, which puts the Special Edition of the title right back in the 'MUST OWN' category for any Action movie fans. And for the X-bots out there, there is no reason to pout. You will also be getting a Special Edition version of Stranglehold
. It's true... you won't get the movie. But you WILL get behind the scenes footage of the game! Woot!
