E3 06: 2K Games visitors seek Prey
Human Head's shooter, The Da Vinci Code adaptation get featured spots at publisher's booth.
LOS ANGELES--While attendees to 2K Games' Electronic Entertainment Expo booth might have come looking for The Family Guy, BioShock, and other anticipated titles in the publisher's lineup, they would not get the chance to try them out on the show floor. On the other hand, they did get an opportunity to go hands-on with the long-awaited Human Head first-person shooter Prey.
Prey was available to play in several kiosks and was one of only two titles at the publisher's booth with its own dedicated display section. The small-screen adaptation of The Da Vinci Code was the only other 2K property to be given its own segment of the booth, with the rest of the publisher's offerings taking up spots along a long channel of kiosks.
That channel featured a number of first looks at games, with the recently acquired console game Ghost Rider appearing in playable form alongside the new PlayStation Portable Dungeon Siege: Throne of Agony, the PC expansion pack Dungeon Siege II: Broken World, and Civilization IV: Warlords. The new 2K7 installments of the company's NBA, NHL, and NCAA licensed games were also on display. Curiously, a portion of the 2K booth was dedicated to already-released titles, like The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, MLB 2K6, and Top Spin 2.
And while gamers did not get a chance to try out the upcoming game based on The Darkness, they were given the chance to stand in line for an autograph signing with some of the talent behind the Top Cow comic, Marc Silvestri and Paul Jenkins.
