Konami scopes Xbox

Silent Scope(s)! With lightgun support!

Konami will release Silent Scope on Xbox this coming November. The game will be a conglomeration of three titles in one package: Silent Scope, Silent Scope: Dark Silhouette, and the console exclusive Silent Scope 3. The first two games will receive graphical enhancements over the original versions, and the game will also feature light-gun support for the first time on a home console. And thank goodness for that, because playing a fast-paced sniping game with a bloody joypad is pretty naff [Dreamcast version seemed fine to me! -Jetlagged Tom]. Pah.

We’re actually quite looking forward to this, it looks like the excellent arcade game (especially that 2-player mode) might finally make the console appearance it’s worthy of.
