E3: Vivendi takes the wraps off 50 Cent game

It's hardly the best-kept secret in the industry in the first place - but publisher Vivendi Universal Games has finally revealed official details of forthcoming gangster title 50 Cent: Bulletproof and its celebrity-studded cast at E3 in Los Angeles.

The violent action game, which stars and was co-produced by US rapper 50 Cent, is due to appear on PlayStation 2, Xbox and PlayStation Portable next year, and is being shown in trailer form at the LA Convention Centre this week.

Joining 50 Cent in the game will be fellow stars Eminem and Dr Dre, appearing as characters "McVicar" and "Grizz" respectively, and a number of other members of his G Unit "clique" and record label such as Tony Yayo, Lloyd Banks and Young Buck.

"I'm as excited about 50 Cent: Bulletproof as I am about the success of my album, The Massacre, and that means a lot since music has always been my life," the curiously monikered musician and former crack dealer (no, really) commented. "The new freestyles and the addition of Eminem and Dre show that this game is on the right course to follow in the successful footsteps of my music."

The game is set to include a number of exclusive new songs from the artist, as well as tracks from his previous albums and an audio studio mode which allows players to mix their own tracks using "freestyle" rap sections and backing beats.
