Sony's upcoming movie-themed shooter, the snappily titled The Shoot, is an attempt at making a kid-friendly shooting game, blasting through familiar scenarios from movies and television to impress the director with your action chops. A brief demo is available on the Starter Disc or PlayStation Network, but those of you eager to take on the full game will get chance on October 19th when the game reaches North America.
The fantastically named Jefferson Dong posted the announcement on the official US PlayStation Blog, although there's currently no word on a European release date.
