Paul Gold's Avatar + Posted by Paul Gold on Jul 15, 2011 // Supervising Producer, Digital Leisure

Howdy Y’all! I’m really excited to officially announce that arcade classic Fast Draw Showdown is launching July 19th on the PlayStation Store. We’ve completely redesigned this shooter from the ground up, so get ready to unholster your PlayStation Move motion controller and show’em all who the fastest draw really is!

We’ve included a bunch of new features exclusive to the PS3. One-by-one you’ll get to take out these vicious gunslingers, and post your fastest draws to the worldwide leaderboards. You can also bring a friend along to play ‘Quickdraw’ and ‘Showdown’ multiplayer modes and see which one of you really has the fastest hands in the west.

On top of the remastered HD video, leaderboards and multiplayer features we’ve designed exclusive western clothing to outfit your PlayStation Home avatar! Cowboy hat, boots, shirt and even riding chaps! Put on the whole outfit or individual items – the choice is yours.

Ooooh this looks interesting. Im curious to see some in-game footage and how it will work with move. Oh and when that dude shot himself in the leg, I burst out laughing. Good trailer. Music is addictive.

Awesome. I dont know if ill be getting this at launch since $10 seems rather steap for something ill only play every now again but still would like it.

@3 – Sharpshooter is just an attachment, when it comes down to it it is just a Move and Nav controller holder. It will work with anything that is PS Move.

Wow this looks sweet! I remember playing this game in the arcades! I agree with DownInFront about the home items, I can’t wait to walk around like a Western BAMF! I’m getting it launch day for sure!

Are there any plans to convert other American Laser Games to the PS3?

    We’d love to bring back other ALG classics like Mad Dog McCree fully remastered for PS3. We’ll definitely keep you posted on any future news.

@Logical_Dolphin I sure hope so.

@4 some games work better with Sharpshooter than others or take advantage of its unique features. I wanted to know if the control scheme is optimized Sharpshooter or not. Now that I watched the trailer I don’t care anymore, so nevermind.

It’s great seeing classic laserdisc games like this and Dragon’s Lair on PSN. I hope Digital Leisure brings Mad Dog McCree, Who Shot Johnny Rock, and Hologram Time Traveler (with 3D support). An HD version of Brain Dead 13 would be awesome, too.

I’d have to play a demo to know for sure if I’ll pay ten dollars, but it looks good and I am happy to see it coming to PSN.

Yeah I remember playing this in the arcades back in the 90′s . Good stuff but I probably won’t bother with this I had enough of it back then . Anyone who enjoys Move shooters should get this .

Yay, more Move light gun games! I hope this game will work well with the red shooting attachment, I wanna get some use out of that thing.

So when exactly does the PS site update trophies you’ve earned. For awhile it seemed pretty quick but its been like 10-12 days now since it’s changed. Wanna see that LA Noire platinum trophy!

@JetSetFuture, I think I had forgotten completely about Hologram Time Traveler until I just read your post. Oh man, that was such an awesome experience back then!

Are there different effects for “where” someone gets shot ie betweem the eyes, in the package, gut etc? That would be funny. And if we could play with friends across PSN competetively that would be neato too. I know you daid it had MP but how does that work?

    Hey marlyt! For this release we did have some fun with scoring depending on where you shoot the bandits – there are all sorts of bonuses. On the multiplayer side of things, we have two separate modes. The first is where you can either take turns with a friend to see who has the fastest draw time or you both can simultaneously go up against an enemy and see who can take’em down first.

So this is just trying to beat guys at draws? That’ll get boring quick nice idea though to bring back old school stuff always appreciate it.

I love me old school games but what i really want to see back in this department are these 2 things.

1. Lethal Enforcers or something similar with an 80′s style Cops shoot em up

2. Konami Justifier – SOMEBODY has to bring back the Revolver easily the sweetest looking gun.

Can this game be played with a regular six-axis controller and without the Move controller like some other Move-compatible games ie Funky Lab Rat?

    The PlayStation Move is required to play Fast Draw Showdown.

THE MAIN REASON THE XBOX 360 AND XBOX LIVE KEEP KICKING SONYS ASS IN SALES AND POPULARITY?

THE LACK OF CROSS GAME VOICE CHAT AND A PARTY SYSTEM ON THE PS3!!!!!!

WHEN WILL SONY STOP IGNORING THE FACTS AND RESCUE THE PS3 FROM AN EARLY DEMISE BY IMPLEMENTING THESE MISSING CRUCIAL COMMUNITY FEATURES?

IS CROSS GAME VOICE CHAT NOT POSSIBLE ON THE PS3? WHY DON’T YOU COME CLEAN WITH THE COMMUNITY SONY AND ADDRESS THIS GIGANTIC PINK ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM?

i agree with aquastorm i would really like cross game voice chat

    We just logged in to PS Home with a retail PS3 and the reward was received without issue. You should check ‘Appliances’ in your Inventory. The arcade cabinet is actually an active game launching object so you can jump right in to Fast Draw from Home.

How is the accuracy of this game? I love love love old school light gun shooters. And I love the light gun shooters out now for move(time crisis, dead space extraction) but, I have noticed that there is a drift problem.

I have a wish list of gun game classics for the ps3
leathal enforcers
Terminator 2 Judgement Day
Area 51
Operation Wolf
Ghost Squad
Steel Gunner 1 & 2
Silent Scope 1 & 2
Aliens Extermination
Police Trainer(which would be great if you could use the psEye to duck like the ir sensors did in the arcade game)
Space Gun
Maximum Force

And I really do think Sony should fight tooth and nail to get a port of the Star Wars Trilogy Arcade game, talk about a game that was made for the move, first you have a cursor that to shoot down enemy ships, and then the lightsaber battle. I would happily pay 10 – 15, maybe even 20, for that game with move support.
