What the traditional 3rd person view might look like

So far all the screens and video we've seen thus far appear to have been from their new OTS (over-the-shoulder) view point. Due to a SlantSix post on the boards a while ago, we are aware that traditional 3rd person will still be in the game. So using one of the new screen shots from this past weekend, a poster on the playstation.com boards named Bocephus created his interpretation of what the traditional 3rd-person might look like in comparison to the OTS view.

Take a look:

I like it. I know I'll give OTS a shot but I think I'll probably be sticking with the traditional 3rd-person view. Hard to know until I get my hands on the game though. And nice job Bocephus for putting that together!

I would really like to know how the 2 different views are going to implemented. Is it player preference? Is it forced by the host?

Have you heard anything about this?

From what I understand, it should be an option. Just like you had the option to play all the SOCOM games from a 1st-person, reticule only, point of view.

Hey david dont know if you ever played any of the GRAW games but they used the OTS view in a tactical game like socom and I thought it worked great. Its good for if you need to lean out or peek out to snipe, because you dont expose your body before you can get a clean shot. Also, to me 3ps seems like you are watching somebody shooting something, OTS seems like you are actually shooting something (not as much as FPS but still).
