Step Into the World of Organized Crime with 2K Games' Mafia(R) II

NEW YORK, Aug 24, 2010 - Gamers' wait to enter the world of organized crime is over, as 2K Games announced today that Mafia(R) II,an epic crime-action tale, is now available for the PlayStation(R)3 computer entertainment system, Xbox 360(R) video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and Windows PC. This pistol-packed period piece transports players to Empire Bay, a fully realized and immersive urban cityscape set in America during the 1940s and 1950s. The action unfolds with white-knuckled car chases, explosive gunplay, compelling characters and an engaging narrative set against a backdrop of meticulously detailed period environments that showcase the difference a decade can make in the evolution of music, fashion, advertising and automobiles. Mafia II will be released on August 26 in Australia and August 27 internationally.

"Mafia II is what gamers want in a mob game - the marriage of a compelling story with edge-of-the-seat action and lifelike characters that immerse players in an epic entertainment experience," said Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K. "When you add in a setting that accurately reflects a period in history that has never been rendered so beautifully, it sets a new benchmark not just for the action-crime genre, but for any game set in the real world with a rich story to tell."

Born the son of a poor immigrant, Vito is a beaten down Italian-American who is trying to escape the life of poverty that consumed his childhood. Vito, along with his lifelong friend, Joe, will descend into the world of organized crime. Looking to escape the life of hardship that his father led, Vito dreams about becoming a "made man," and together with Joe, will work to prove themselves to the Mafia as they try to make their names on the streets. However, the two quickly realize that life as a wise guy isn't quite as glamorous as it seems.

Throughout Mafia II, players will be immersed in the music from the most influential artists of the time. Mafia II features more than 100 original licensed songs from the 40's and 50's that can be heard blaring from car radios and throughout Empire Bay. Among the most popular offerings of the era are "Ain't that a Kick in the Head" by Dean Martin, "Boom Boom" by John Lee Hooker, "Mambo Italiano" by Rosemary Clooney, "It Don't Mean a Thing" by Duke Ellington, and "Manish Boy" by Muddy Waters.

The Mafia II demo, which has been downloaded and immensely enjoyed by millions of gamers around the world, is currently available for free from the PlayStation(R)Network, Xbox LIVE Marketplace for Xbox 360 and via Steam and select Internet portals for Windows PC.

Mafia II was developed by 2K Czech, the 2K studio behind the award-winning Mafia, a game which captivated more than two million gamers around the world. Powered by 2K Czech's proprietary next-generation Illusion Engine(TM) that was built specifically for Mafia II, players will experience the true evolution of the game. Mafia II is available now for the PlayStation 3 system, Xbox 360, and Windows PC and is rated M for Mature by the ESRB.

PS 3 - 2 Things while Choosing a Console

Written by James Mowery on Friday, 27 August 2010 13:31.


The console wars wage on. There is no clear winner in site, and there may never be one. The Wii, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 have all found different niches. The Wii has locked up families and younger gamers. The hardcore gamers are split down the center between the 360 and the PS3. You can argue hardware back and forth, but choosing a console comes down to two things. Note how many pixels or polygons, but can it do more then just play games, and the games themselves.

PS3 has Blu-Ray; 360 not so much. Given a Blu-Ray player is a significant fraction of the cost of a PS3, I'm sold right there. Does the 360 have great games? Yes, but the PS3 has cornered the market on high quality RPGs.

Go on, I hear you in the back. Finish your snickering about RPGers not being real gamers. SquareSoft mades it's reputation as one of the greatest game developers on RPGs. RPGs have come a long way since the first Final Fantasy. When I sit down and intend to lose a day to a game, shooters don't do it for me. Platforms are fun now and again, but after a few hours I get frustrated. Pick up one of the new RPGs, FF13, Dragonage:Origins, Mass Effect 1 or 2. You will get drawn in, the games are just fun. The characters are engaging, likable. They banter back and forth. They help pull you in, engage you in the story of the game in a way that a great novel can. Except that with these games, you choose that plot twist.

A gamer should choose their console based on what they most enjoy. The Xbox and Wii just don't provide me the same value as the PS3. I'm an RPG guy, can't beat the PS3 for that.
