Ubisoft Announces CSI: CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION Hard Evidence to Launch for the Xbox 360 and Wii

Today, Ubisoft announced that it will be releasing CSI: CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION Hard Evidence for the Xbox 360 and the Wii Fall 2007. This release marks the first time CSI fans will be able to play a CSI video game on the Xbox 360 and Wii. Players will be able to use the Wii Remote to navigate through a crime scene, or experience cinematic-style graphics on the Xbox 360. The user interface has been completely redone with a console audience in mind, making the game more like the show than ever. The PC version of Hard Evidence will ship simultaneously with the Xbox 360 and Wii versions.


Developed by Telltale Games, CSI: CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION(TM) Hard Evidence will continue the crime-solving experience of Ubisoft's CSI video game series. Players will join Gil Grissom, Catherine Willows and the rest of the Las Vegas cast to help solve crimes using realistic techniques and lab equipment. The game features forensic reconstructions and atmospheric crime scenes taken directly from the television show, including an all-new garage lab for analyzing large pieces of evidence, improved evidence gathering, lab mini-games and more. There are more areas to explore and increased interaction with the CSI team, resulting in a longer play experience. Game features include:

  • More Crime-Solving Action
    Break down the evidence and bring suspects to justice in five all-new, bizarre crimes. Unravel longer cases, search bigger crime scenes and uncover hidden evidence in unique locations like never before.
  • Go Deeper into the Evidence
    Master new forensic tools and find more evidence than ever. Use the new garage lab to examine large pieces of evidence like cars and trucks. Recreate gunfights with ballistic lasers, uncover shocking secrets with video analysis, and much more.
  • The Ultimate CSI Experience
    Experience your very own CSI episodes as you piece together clues with the real CSI actors. Take part in dramatic interrogations, create grisly crime reenactments and explore atmospheric crime scenes inspired by the show.

CSI: CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION(TM) is consistently one of the top-rated shows on network television and won the People's Choice Award for Favorite Television Drama in 2003, 2004, 2005 and 2006 and was a People's Choice Award nominee in 2007 as well.
