"127 Hours" Game Cancelled Due To James Franco's Disappointing Oscar Hosting
The forthcoming game based on the movie 127 Hours, which is based on mountain climber Aron Ralston's grueling story, has been cancelled.
Ubisoft, who was to release the hugely anticipated action game 127 Hours: The Video Game, was so disappointed with James Franco's performance hosting the Oscars last night, they pulled the game at the last minute. "We were banking on Franco's charisma and charm to sell the game, when we suddenly realized he had none."
One gamer was sorely disappointed. "Sure he sucked," commented Hrdup4u, "but I was really looking forward to being trapped by a boulder for more than five days then amputating my arm with a dull knife. Now that's an action game."
