The wait is over. After approximately 17 years in development*, Midway has finally announced that Wheelman will get a global February 16, 2009 release.

Set for release on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, the game stars the likeness and voice of actor Vin Diesel driving fast cars and shooting at things in a virtual Barcelona. 

"We're designing Wheelman to play like a Hollywood blockbusters," said Diesel. "Playing this game will be just like taking control of the greatest car chases from feature films, except this time you're in the drivers seat."

Diesel's is producer on the title, in assocation with his own Tigon Studios. There's also a Hollywood film in the works set to star Diesel and his manly man-ness. 

Check out our hands-on preview of Wheelman from Midway's Gamers' Day earlier this year.

* Not actually fact.

Midway Arcade Origins compiles 30+ games on one disc

With the amount of older games that have been ported to digital distribution platforms, I have yet to buy one of those compilation discs this console generation. As such, I'm inclined to be interested in Midway Arcade Origin...more
