"The movie game business is falling apart," according to EA Games President Frank Gibeau, who said the publisher would rather focus on quality original games because licensed titles just aren't worth the resources required to make them.

Smart move, the only one that ever did good was Arkham Asylum and that wasn't solely based upon the whole movie.

Max Power2492d ago

It wasn't based on any movie.

ikkokucrisis2492d ago

It was more based upon the cartoon series (all the same voice actors), which has been by far the best comic book TV series ever made to date.

And thankfully, the game was good too!

LightofDarkness2492d ago

I don't know what you're talking about 0_o

Arkham Asylum was originally a graphic novel, and even then the story is ultimately different.

aPerson2492d ago

Exactly. I'm getting so sick of people claiming Arkham Asylum is based on the movies. Just because there are Batman movies doesn't mean that all Batman games are movie tie-ins.

CobraKai2492d ago

They're confusing licensed games with movie games.

The Dark Knight2492d ago (Edited 2492d ago )

Thank god, that means we wont see a half cocked movie game version of the dark knight rises. Its all AA 2's year ;)

showtimefolks2492d ago

and make these games $39.99 not the regular price.

a side story not the same as the movie, this gen graphics engine and gameplay taht works.

and if you do include online make sure its everything that's already in online games PLUS SOMETHING FRESH.

and if a movie company want to make a game make sure to give the devs enough time let them know ahead of time

and if you ONLY HAVE TIME FOR SINGLE PLAYER JUST DO TAHT DON'T JUST WASTE TIME ON A ONLINE THAT NO ONE WILL PLAY INSTAED MAKE THE STORY THE BEST IT COULD BE

showtimefolks2492d ago

movie games wasn't a movie game yet it had to come out around the movie

the gameplay/combat/story is the weakest i the series. its a shame that a great series like POP is still looking for a next-gen game

ubi needs to wake up Ac every year is not the answer

POP
rainbow six
rayman game like ps1/ps2 days
etc,,,,

RememberThe3572492d ago

YES! Those games always suck anyway.

gravemaker2492d ago

hell yeah, make Mirrors Edge 2 for us!

archemides5182492d ago

while this could be cool, if they make it now they prolly feel justified in making it 6hrs...

Nitrowolf22492d ago

good and i suggest other companies to follow
Games are not ment to be movies not matter how amazing they may be it doesn't always transfer well with movies and fans know that.

Theonik2492d ago

I think you misunderstood. He's talking about games based on Movies. ie the harry Potter movie games. Securing licences is costing more and more money and it's not worth the effort any more.

Nitrowolf22492d ago (Edited 2492d ago )

ahh
none the less
Movies games are still crap (most of them), and games based off movies are much worse

PeeWizzle2492d ago

I'm sure Activision would love to have the chance to rape Harry Potter.

Nitrowolf22492d ago (Edited 2492d ago )

lol they would probably have the epilogue of the last book be its own game

Pedobear Rocks2492d ago

Too late...if you catch my drift.
