Also cool to see that it takes place in the 70's.

"Dirty Harry takes place between the first and second films. Set in 1970's San Francisco,...".
http://uk.ps3.ign.com/articles/707/707408p1.html

Also, some more info:
The trailer is neither CG cut-scene nor actual gameplay. Instead, WBIE gave their models and engine schematics to an animation house, which produces the trailer. It's a simulation of the gameplay, which is promised to equal the game quality already seen in house. The level of detail was impressive. The hills of San Francisco have never looked better and the '70s vibe was in full effect. Dirty Harry's face is a spitting image of the movie version. Most impressive was how perfect developer The Collective captured Eastwood's steely gaze.

The highlight was when Harry shoved a crook's head in a vice and was squeezin' it, a la an interrogation scene from The Punisher. "The head in the vice gag," Eastwood quipped, "I never thought of that one before."

WBIE was reluctant to release details on the gameplay or the plot, but offered a few hints. The story, while not a 100% connective thread from the first to second Harry flick, will "explore the character more." While it was never confirmed, it sounded like Harry would offer a free-roaming San Francisco. "The city of San Francisco can be a character," WBIE VP Jason Hall said. "It can live."

One key aspect of gameplay was discussed in slight detail. As in the films, Harry walks the line between bad cop and psychopath. Players will also walk that line. The game features reactive AI, both for crooks and cops. While there was no further explanation, it appears that if you are soft on crooks, they may not take Harry seriously. On the other end, going to nuts will put you in trouble with the police chief.

Dirty Harry won't arrive until the first half of 2007.

Cool!

Thanks for the link.

The trailer looks and sounds great.
I can't wait to see how the actual gameplay looks.

I guess now I have to start saving for an XBOX 360.

Much more dignified was the appearance of an indisputable film legend at E3. On Thursday afternoon in a closed-door session attended by only a few journalists, Clint Eastwood turned up to promote his forthcoming Dirty Harry game for next-generation consoles. Though he'll turn 76 at the end of the month, the Oscar-winning actor-director seemed energetic and affable, and announced that two stars of his films, Gene Hackman (Unforgiven) and Laurence Fishburne (Mystic River), will lend their voices and likenesses to the Dirty Harry game.

Normally I hate any videogame that is made after a movie. Because when it is all said and done, the game isn't anywhere as good as the movie (i.e. The Godfather, The Warriors). But with Clint's approval and support of this, hopefully it will change my views.

Uh... if you arn't a big gamer, then I would suggest getting a Xbox 360. They go for $400. I say this not because I'm a fanboy (which I am not by the way), but because the PS3 is going to cost you $600. And if you arn't a big gamer, and DH is also going to be on the 360, then there is no reason to pay that much more.

It has pbbly been mentioned earlier in this thread, but will it be released on PC too?
Because as much as I want to play it,  I don't intend to buy the X Box or the PS3 just for this game.

Glenny, I merged your topic in the Dirty Harry forum with this one in the News forum. We'd like to keep all the news about this video game in one place.

Because I wanted to keep the existing topic title, I edited your post to explain that it's about the trailer. :)

Thanks, ;)

But, what is the game storyline?

Just Dirty Harry or all the films?

I thought it would be a mix of all the films -I thought I had read somewhere that it would be -logical if you consider that there were 5 Dirty Harry movies, but informations concerning the storyline seem to vary depending on the source  ???

From Wikipedia
Quote
While Callahan seeks to clean up the streets as the only way he sees fit, it's believed that the game will follow the same storyline of the film in which the San Francisco detective is tracking down a serial killer called Scorpio.

Guess we'll have to wait and see  ;)
