    Pre-E3: Atari Getting Up With Ecko
    By Daniel Kayser of Gamerfeed
    Published 4:09 PM PDT May 6, 2004

    Another title from Atari will debut at E3, and this one's about graffiti art and urban culture...


    Atari announced today that another title will debut in their upcoming line-up at the Electronic Entertainment Expo next week in Los Angeles. This latest title has some rather unique roots as it is being developed by The Collective (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Wrath Unleashed) in conjunction with Ecko Unlimited's Marc Ecko (yes, the fashion designer). The game is expected to hit in June 2005, but has not yet been specified for any platform.

    Titled Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure, the game has something to do with "urban culture and graffiti art" and we can only assume, judging by developer The Collective's track record, that the game will be a 3D action game at its core.

    Details are sketchy at this point, but at least Eric Ecko himself is really excited, "This game will be genre-defining. Revolutionary. We will put the flag in the ground of popular culture with Getting Up," he says. "Over my seven-year journey to get this thing made, I have had the good fortune to have met and explored opportunities with many different publishers. Atari allowed me the freedom to challenge the status quo manner in how games are developed, and that is precisely why it is the ideal home for this title. This is a dream come true for me."

    It sounds as though gamers should get excited about Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure and based on the good vibes that are also flowing through Atari's Bruno Bonnell, the tile should relate to many an urbanite. ""Videogames have become a huge part of the urban lifestyle but no game has yet to truly capture the look, attitude, action or sound of urban culture," says Bonnell. ""We have an incredible opportunity to change that....to be the first to get it right and share the authentic experience with gamers worldwide. Marc's vision of Getting Up fuses his expert knowledge of youth culture, his talent as a graphic artist and his passion for gaming. It's nothing less than extraordinary and Atari is thrilled to be a part of it."

    We'll leave our spray paint at home when we head to E3 to find out more about this interesting title heading your way later this year.

    Toys are so happy. Why don't you do it in real life?

    I wander if you get caught if they butt rape you.
    I wander if you have to order the shit on the video game and then wait for it in the mail.
    I wander if you have to beat people up and take thier paint or markers.
    I wander if in the game you have to go into "TOY MODE" and post on 12 ounce.
    I wander if I can shoot this Ecko guy in the face in front of his mom.

    In real life.

    there already is one. it's called Jet Set Radio Future, and its the shittiest game ever. don't play it. it makes you want to gouge out your eyes and cut off your hands so that theres never any chance of you playing it again.

    edit: i just read the article. this game sounds shitty too.

    if i could make it it would be ill but i would have all the elements of hip hop. not just writing. it should be like proskater in controles and you should have to pre draw your own tag throws and bernerz like a photo shop program style black book in the first level so i dont have to be some dick head on the montana team like bates and spend all day tring to unlock special writers like seen or saber. if i have to be some one id wana be revs i ges. and try to not kill my self by falling off a 100 ft bridge.

    it most likely will suck but ill rack it.

    jet set radio future is actually the sequel to the game jet grind radio, n i consider them more as rollerblading games, and the graff element just a fun side thing...but u can innovate your own bombs n shit...

    If this game comes out the way they say it is going to it should be pretty sick. They are using several old school writers from NY for the game, the only ones I know for sure are Seen and Iz The Wiz but I know there are others that have been contacted for it. From what I hear from Seen and IZ your supposed to have to go rack your supplies and then have to break into the train yard to go paint your train and run from the cops and what not. It's "supposed" to be a fairly realistic game. We'll see if they can pull it off when it comes out.

    I hope this video has the option where you get to pimp hot asian chicks with your graff skills and then bang them?

    Then they'd have to call it "Lens' big fat video game adventure

    all the MSK/AWR heads would be bosses and mini-bosses you'd have to defeat to get to the next level.

    Ha ha, 'your mission is to rack three cases of montana paint and get it back to your crew's place before you are caught and beaten down by revok and saber."

    shit whatever, I'd rather spend money on an asian call girl before buying a fucking video game system

    No thanks, I like playing the real thing... but it'd be interesting to see how it turns out. I remember Jet Grind Radio but that shit was gay. Fake-ass graff and a bunch of sissies on roller-blades.

    Why in the world would you want to play the video game anyway?
    Cant you just go out and do the real thing? Yeah i can see myself sitting 2 hours playing a game tagging a city that doesnt even exist in real life.

    Fuck that.

    99% of video games are weak anyway. I'd rather be studying or out and about tagging and getting faded.

    All I can say is, i hope this doesnt turn out anything like the tony hawk games. the last thing we need is every kid with an x box thinking theyre down with "tagging" because they know seen and zephyr.

    dude, "hope" in this sense will do nothing. Your hoping is really a prediction of the future.....

    Graffiti is making a comeback in a major way much the same way it does every few years just like skateboarding.

    Real heads will just have to put up with the bullshit until it blows over.

    Only problem is that lotsa kids'll think that graffiti is "neat" and "cool" thus generating a new wave of idiot toy motherfuckers who'll disregard old school writers, piss all over the unwritten rules of graff ettiquite(sp) and cause so much damage that new and more anal laws will be generated in cities across the land to discourage people from getting up.

    Sucks ass.
