To me, it depends, If we get solid titles, sure. But crappy movie-based game after crappy movie-based game and the like puts a bad taste in everyone’s mouth

Ironman = amazing movie. Ironman game = amazing letdown.

Yeah great point. Another case of licensing gone wrong.

Don't really need to see any more High School Musical games, but it has proven to work well for sports games.. Madden anyone?

Who care about License or Midway? The last games of Midway were flop. Area 51, Iron man etc......

@Lelouch V Brit
Have you actually read the article? It's not about just Midway and their license agreements. And we already stated Iron Man wasn't that great.

I think everyone loved the Shrek 3 game and the latest Harry Potter game. There's some obvious places where licensing goes wrong.
