The new Jaws era...a chance for divers to play a new role

Based on the successful 1975 film of the same name, Playstation's new game, Jaws lets you play as a great white shark who must defend his territory from underwater drillers. The game features locations from the movie and destructible underwater environments.

The game storyline is not unfamiliar: Amity Island is growing, making corporate connections with prestigious companies like Environplus to improve the Island's economy. Unfortunately the increased population around the Island and recent industrial activity has also attracted YOU--one of Earth's most fearsome creatures--a Great White Shark.

When the Environplus CEO's son falls prey to your deadly attacks, the CEO hires renowned shark hunter Cruz Ruddock to track and kill you. Meanwhile, Marine Biologist Michael Brody tries to capture you for research. Can Ruddock and Brody stop you from causing havoc and killing more people before the 4th of July celebration?

Damage the surrounding vehicles, enemies, and structures with your underwater and surface attacks. With "shark vision," you can see your victims before they know you're coming. In addition to being the predator, you must solve puzzles, battle bosses, and overcome a variety of challenges. It is scheduled to be released in the United States in October 2005.

The 30th Anniversary Edition of JAWS the movie just hit store shelves. This exclusive double DVD set contains deleted scenes and outtakes, a never-before-available interview with director Steven Spielberg, a two hour documentary on the Making of Jaws and much more.
