Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. (NASDAQ:TTWO) announced today that its Rockstar Games subsidiary will be bringing Max Payne, which was developed for the PC by Remedy Entertainment and produced by 3D Realms, to the PlayStation2 and Xbox video game system from Microsoft this Fall. Since its initial shipment on PC a week ago, Max Payne has already debuted as the number 1 selling PC game in the U.K. (source: ChartTrack), Germany (source: Mediacontrol) and other major European markets. Domestically, while not yet officially ranked, the Company has been very pleased with what to date has been record first week North American sell-through for a Take-Two PC product in many major retail accounts.

The Xbox version of Max Payne is in development at the Company's Vienna based Neo Software development studio, while the PlayStation 2 version is being developed at the Company's Toronto based Rockstar Canada studio. Kelly Sumner, Chief Executive Officer, said, "To date, Max Payne has represented the largest critical and sell-through success Take-Two has ever had on the PC. We are very pleased to leverage the successful Max Payne brand franchise by releasing video game console versions of the product this Fall."
