    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.

    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.

    a hem.....
    well nice game based on tv series...
    x-files game for PC
    csi 3 dimension of a murder...
    law and order....

    all though all of them are cgi the x file was on real actors. with full of a movie but you can say t more a interactive movie

    i fail to imagine a game on heroes...there is more questions than action and i see a lot of time travel for hiro..and that sayler is immortal ???


    on lost i can imagine a game in the last season they saw us that they return.....only if there was a3 island ....



    p.s.the game 24 suck big time..

    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.
