Remember that scene in Point Break where Patrick Swayze and friends rob a bank? Or maybe you enjoyed the bank robbery in GTA IV? Well, imagine playing either of those to scenes in 4-player co-op on your PS3. Yes, you're right - that does sound like a lot of fun. But wait - this isn't just a fun game of 'what if' - it's actually happening, thanks to Sony Online Entertainment's forthcoming first-person shooter Payday: The Heist - which PC Gamer reckons could steal the show at E3. Check out gameplay and the first trailer here:
Tim Edwards of PC Gamer has played and previewed the game and says if enough people get wind of it, it could be the game of the show. High praise indeed.
If it does turn out to be, at the very least, 'Left 4 Dead with cops', that's fine by us. Here's the game being played at the event - see what you make of it:
At the time of writing, a 'learn to surf' sidequest looks unlikely. And although a close encounter with a lawnmower blade is also unconfirmed, judging by the amount of gore and headshot action going down, we wouldn't put it past Payday.
