Activision Announces "Battleship" Game Based On Movie Based On Game
Today Activision announced that they are launching a new video game based on the upcoming movie Battleship, which is based on the classic board game by Hasbro. "It's a bold step," says Activision spokesman Heywood Jablome. "This is unprecedented in the video game industry, and also pretty ridiculous."
The upcoming adaptation of the forthcoming movie based on the no longer coming game will feature classic Battleship gameplay, except for the fact that the player will be battling aliens. "Why didn't the people who created the game come up with that idea?" says Hasbro spokesman Oldis Newagin. "Oh yeah, because it's stupid."
Universal Pictures plans to tie their publicity campaign with the release of the video game, as well as referring to the classic for the movie. The tagline for the posters will feature the statement "based on the classic game our target demographic has never heard of..."
