Sniper: Ghost Warrior sets sights on PS3 in Q1 2011


It looks like the surprising success of Sniper: Ghost Warrior on Xbox 360 has led developer City Interactive to port it to PS3. The game will arrive on Sony's console early next year, during the first quarter.

This newest version of the game will include all of the updates (and presumably DLC) released for the PC and Xbox versions, plus several additions. Notably, Sniper for PS3 will sport improved graphics, more single-player missions, extra multiplayer modes and maps, two new sniper rifles and a new single-player challenge mission.
