SEGA SHIPS CONDEMNED: CRIMINAL ORIGINS
SAN FRANCISCO (November 22, 2005) - SEGAÂ® of America, Inc. today announced that its upcoming first-person psychological thriller Condemned: Criminal Origins(TM) has shipped to retailers nationwide and is available for the Xbox 360(TM) video game and entertainment system from Microsoft. Described by Official Xbox Magazine as "suspenseful, scary, and downright twisted," Condemned: Criminal Origins allows players to experience a heightened level of psychological tension as they use their instincts, forensic tools, and melee combat to track serial
killers and bring them to justice.
"Condemned: Criminal Origins has been built from the ground up for the Xbox 360; this game could not be made on current-generation technology," said Scott A Steinberg, Vice President of Marketing, SEGA of America. "Photorealistic environments and strategic enemy AI combine to create a terrifying next-generation experience."
When played in 5.1 surround sound, this game is an aural assault on the senses. Gruesome weapons can be improvised by clever gamers - paper-cutter handles, wooden planks, and mannequin arms can be used to attack opponents. Enemies donât merely run at the player; they find an appropriately powerful weapon to attack with, then hide in the shadows, waiting for an open opportunity to strike.
Condemned: Criminal Origins is rated "M" (Mature) by the ESRB and is available at retailers nationwide for an MSRP of $59.99. For more information about Condemned: Criminal Origins, please visit http://www.condemnedgame.com.
