The release of the War of the World's DVD is on November 22nd, the same day as the Xbox 360 launch; coincidence? A War of the World's game could bring one of the year's biggest movie licenses together with an action packed teen or mature rated Xbox 360 exclusive creating the system seller Microsoft is looking for.

There is no way that any developer could create a complete working game in 2 months. It's not possible. What's more, it would be FAR from a system seller. Has any movie based game (other then CoR) ever been extremely successful?

Why do you think it has only been in development for 2 months? They could've been working on it for years without anyone knowing. A movie game has never been a system seller, but the main reason for that is that a movie game has never been exclusive before. If the game was good, a solid license could make it great.

given the track record of movie games, this one's lined up to be a stinker, and could cause people NOT to get a 360....if anything

This movie HAS NO ACTION!!!!

It would be a bunch of RUNNING AROUND

You have got to be kidding me if I think that this could be even a game, let alone a secret high volume seller...

How can they make a game in only two months? Through the mystical powers of Tom's scientology of course; they put all of the developers on dianetics and then give them visions of xenu the evil one. :D

Lol yeah... Chronicles of Riddick is the only movie to game conversion I can think of that turned out very well... I bought Enter the Matrix... and I die a little bit everyday because of it :(.

Besides, the movie sucked (unless this was based off the OLD movie :\).

:werd:
In fact, Riddick is the only movie game that comes to mind that was any good (hell, any good..Riddick was GREAT).

There's just one caveat though, it was based on butcher bay....and was in fact only based in the riddick universe...and was not based on the actual movies themselves.

Starwars games, yes, some of those were good too. However the BEST starwars games that come to mind again, were games that were not based on actual movies themselves but just the story material. Kotor made one of the best video games of all time in all of videogaming...EVER. It would make a HORRIBLE movie though imho, and they need to keep the story sequences apart from each other. Videogames butcher movies and vice versa, if this is based on the MOVIE then it is GUARANTEED SUCKAGE.

If it's based around the story, and has to have Tom Cruise in it I refuse to buy it on that premise. If it's based on HG Wells WotW, then I'll just put my preorder in once I know it's not EA or Vivendi publishing it, and play on to videogaming paradise.

Same... but this seems like something EA WILL be doing :\.

I think that more than anything else, this year system seller could be 99 nights, although it's still undecided if this game will show outside Japan! LOTR scale battles in an RPGish environment.

Tie-ins have always been poor games built to capitalize on the momentum of the movies. (Anyone remebers the software publisher Ocean which got a name fro crappy movie spin-offs that populated Commodore64 and Amiga back in the 80s ? ) True, they might sell a lot but they can hardly affect the hardware sales. Actually, I think it's the other way around.

CoR was really good, but I also liked BFME and the Lotr games for the Ps2! :)

HOW!!!!!

The game had no action at all. Period. Oh sure it had the giant robots running around everywhere. But there was no fighting them really. There was pretty much just running away. There is no role that you can take that requires you to have any good gameplay. Regardless of how much you liked the movie, this cannot make even a remotely good game at all
