Ubisoft Gets Lost, Finds Heroes

French game developer Ubisoft announced at Comic-Con 2007 that it will be adapting two popular television shows into video games. The American Broadcasting Company's (ABC) hit mystery drama 'Lost' will be released on the XBOX 360, PS3 and PC in early 2008. Ubisoft will also bring the National Broadcasting Company's (NBC) freshman hit 'Heroes' to an unspecified platform. Few details were given but VP of worldwide licensing Christian Salomon did say players will interact directly with the shows universe.Source: Gamespot

This is such a bad idea IMO...
Why would you say that? Ubisoft make and publish very good games, personally i am intrigued to what the concepts for both games will be.

not heroes... noooo.... *cries*

lost was already bad, the game will just put you on an island full of weir booby traps, without any way to get off or finish the game.

There are very few TV-Show based games that were good, I'll wait until I play these new ones before passing judgement.

I personally will be very interested to see Heroes as a game. I love that show so much and to b e able to play as Sypher or Clare or Peter and Nathan Petrelli, the wonder twins.

Im excited myself.


Personally, I cant stand Lost and I think it is just stupid.
