You Sure About This, Weinsteins? Harvey & Bob Enters The Video Game Biz

the weinstein company to make video games

Aside from Aladdin, and MAYBE the video game based on Steven Spielberg's Hook, when have they EVER made a good video game adaptation from a movie?

Looks like The Weinsteins aren't letting that stop them, because today they announced the launch of TWC Games, which will create video games based on properties owned by TWC and Dimension Films for "mobile, social, and console platforms."

Does that mean we'll be seeing a Scream 4 video game soon after the movie is released?

Here's what Bob Weinstein had to say about the launch of TWC Games:

"The video game marketplace is changing at such a rapid rate. With all of the digital platforms, there are so many opportunities to broaden our audience with compelling, high quality, cost-efficient, video game entertainment."

Here's what Adam Boyes, the president of TWC Games' partner Beefy Media, had to say about the partnership:

“The Weinstein Company is an incredible entertainment company, and I share their vision for creating very high quality content for the marketplace. We plan to combine our extensive video game developer relationships with the impressive catalogue of properties to create and produce content made by gamers for gamers.”

More power to them if they're able to make quality games, but traditionally the movie-based video games are always the worst ones, so we're skeptical.

Do U think TWC Games will make quality products? Have U ever played movie-based video games that you thought were good?

    Star Wars and Lord of the Rings video games are among the best ones made dipshit. And then there's the Scarface game, which was huge. The Lego versions of Star Wars and Harry Potter are top sellers. You really don't do research anymore do you?

    Perez, just like most other subjects, you obviously have no idea what the hell you're talking about when it comes to video games. Stick to gossip.

    Gamer here. To answer your question there are many great games made from movies but they are overshadowed by the majority that suck. But some of the best games have been adaptation of films such as Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay, The Spider-man games especially Spider-man 2, Star Wars series, Lord of the Rings, Batman won game of the year 2 years ago, the Wolverine game was extremely good, THE Incredible Hulk games were awesome. There are many great movie adaptaions into games that were amazing but like i said they are overshadowed by the mass production of crap that has been released with every other movie out there. Dont hate on them all.

    Who needs your opinion, Perez. You haven't made any successful business ventures other than this blog. The numbers are dropping daily, however, and "we" hope you've covered your ass.
