Web site for TimeShift clocks in

Atari finds time to launch Internet destination for its sci-fi shooter; site features screens, videos, and story info.

Atari today launched the official Web site for its upcoming first-person shooter, TimeShift. The game is currently in development by New Jersey studio Saber Interactive and is scheduled to be released for the PC and Xbox 360 this spring.

In the game, players fill the shoes of Colonel Michael Swift, a government guinea pig who accepts the task of trying out a special suit. These duds, however, didn't just fall off the Sears coat rack. The multimillion dollar suit allows Swift to slow, stop, and reverse time. After running the suit through a few test runs, he returns to a time that is drastically different than how he left it.

The Web site features the usual fare, such as game info, screenshots, and trailers, as well as the promise of developer diaries and interactive videos to be coming soon.

TimeShift will retail for $49.99 on the PC, and $59.99 on the Xbox 360. An Xbox version of the game has also been announced. For more on the game, check out GameSpot's previous coverage.

Why in the world is the 360 version 10 dollars more than the PC version? Just another way to rip off the consumer.

Atari, I really hope you get things rolling again. Your fourth quarter numbers were sickening. Maybe re-release the original console. i'd buy one just so I could play Asteroids again. or I could just go to gametap. Sorry, Atari.

The demo was not bad. It just was not very impressive. The time shifting will have to seen in the full game and how/if it will effect the enviroment. Then the game might be saved.

I heard the demo was pretty bad, maybe they'll improve it drastically, I hope they do anyways.

It looks like it needs some work for the 360, doesn't look like it's using the full power of it. I would be uber p-i-s-e-d (yes I misspelt it on purpose) if I put on a government suit and ended up in a different time...but you gotta make the best of it...especially with guns.

The demo... was questoniable..... if it is any idea of the LVL design then the design is the smallest lvl ever, it will take you about 3 minutes to finish. I am worried that the lvl size will be a standered in a game. Nervous about pre ordering.

Wow, I didn't think people would hate the demo so much. I'm going to get the demo soon to see if what people say is really true. I was looking forward to this game, I hope it gets improved. I think the demo is an early beta though, I remember seeing that the creators said that the game improved a lot since that demo.

The PC demo felt like it came right out of a timeshift of about five years ago. It plays like Soldier of Fortune with a couple neat parlor tricks and a few more blemishes.

I played the Demo and was VERY unimpressed and I have heards the same from other's, so I doubt it will do big sales.
