Was a bit worried about this when I saw the first screenshots/concept art (a bald Max Payne in Brazil ? wtf ?), but it does look very cool

Looks very cinematic

Yeah i was the same..... He does have hair in some clips though so we can assume he shaves it off as a result of something in the story. Perhaps he catches head lice or summit? (that’s my guess)

I loved the first two. The first one, if i remember correctly, kind of rode the coat-tails of The Matrix's bullet-time but the game was ridiculously good fun as well. The sequel was very much 'if it aint broke, dont fix it just polish it a bit' and that seems to be the ethos for number 3. Don't muck around with the core gameplay, just bring it to a nice high shine.

Rockstar; is there anything they can't do? :lol1:

yeah, the first 2 stood out for the bullet time effect... and for the dark gritty NY setting
which is why it's a bit strange they've decided to replaced snowy dark NY with sunny Rio de Janeiro :lol1: :lol1: :lol1:


Still, does look very polished

Pushed back till May!!
Max Payne 3 release pushed back again, to May 2012
By Casey Johnston | Published a day ago

Max Payne 3's release has been delayed to May of this year from its targeted release date of March, Take Two Interactive announced today. According to a statement, the publisher is pushing the release date to ensure the game "delivers the highest quality, groundbreaking entertainment experience."

Rockstar Games originally announced that it was working on Max Payne 3 in March 2009, and the company was targeting a Winter 2009 release. Multiple releases were eventually sandwiched in between the game's announcement and its now-imminent release over three years later, including L.A. Noire and Red Dead Redemption.

In the third installment of the series, Max Payne now works as security for a wealthy man named Rodrigo Branco in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Branco's wife is kidnapped, pulling Payne into "a conspiracy of shadowy, warring factions."

Since the game's release date has been pushed yet again, Take Two is now reporting a fiscal loss for the 21012 year, which ends in March, of $210 million to $230 million. With its release in fiscal year 2013, Max Payne 3 will be launched closer to other Take Two titles including XCOM, BioShock Infinite, and Borderlands 2.

The official release dates for Max Payne 3 in North America are May 15 for Xbox 360/PlayStation 3 and May 29 for PC; internationally, the game launches May 18 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 and June 1 for PC.
