Here’s a trailer for the highly anticipated game, Prototype, which will be available for Playstation 3, Xbox 360 and the PC by Summer 2009. The synopsis is that you play a character named Alex Mercer and you wake up in a military lab wondering where you are and how you got there. You break out and go on an adventure of destroying things and along the way you find out what happened to you and why you have the powers you have. I have to say this game looks amazing and has developed quite a bit from when I first played the beta many moons ago, when I first played the beta I was hooked within the first few seconds of touching the controller. The things you can do in the game are amazing and that was a super early preview I had, I can only imagine how far its developed by now.
I have to admit every time I see screen shots or videos of this game, a bit of me cries on the inside, as the former company I worked for, I was the co-lead on a sponsorship project on this videogame which would’ve blown our brand waaaaay out there. Aces for cutting this team, just like that time I pitched sponsoring the video for UGK ft. Outkast’s “Intl Players Anthem”, yeah that’s right, the video that went on to win hip hop video of the year. Me, bitter? Nooooooooo.
