    I wonder, if in typical "movie" game fashion, if this will get released on all the platforms??

    If it's as fun to play as the Transformers Armada game it will be a sure winner. :D

    At this point, it seems only an EXTREME situation will stop the film, a game company wouldn't announce a big license like that unless they were sure it was coming

    I hope that unlike typical movie game fasion, it doesn't completely suck.

    Unlikely. I suspect that this happens so frequently because money that should have been spent on development is blown on acquiring the license.

    This TF game also has the barrier of being only the second TF game that was better than "blah." (the BW game for the PSX wasn't terrible... but certainly no better than "blah")

    Temper your expectations, folks. You have been warned.

    My Smokescreen - I forgot how much joy you brought to conversations.

    Let's remember, a movie tie in game is never meant to be great - that's a side affect that's wished for. It's meant to sell and promote the license. I'm honestly surprised Activision got the license for this, but I'm hopeful it will be as good as Armada was - which was a fun game to play. There's certainly more characters to incorporate in a movie game and more backgrounds, so this should be a fun romp.

    I at least hope they'll have the sense to hire Melbourne House for the job, considering that they made the Armada game.

    But imagine: A TF game on the PS3. :eek:  I'll play that just for the graphics alone, and I'll even buy it if the gameplay is good! ;)

    Yes a tape deck! Now you can pick the tracks and dance along to Trans-Dance-Revolution!

    That would make the game awesome! NOT.

    The PS2 Transformers game rocked. In fact I still play it. If this one is up to par with it, it'll be great.

    The PS2 game was awsome. Add Multiplayer and G1 characters to a similar engine and we would have a great game, expectations tempered or not. And the Beast Wars games sucked....What you talkin' about Willis???

    It was speculated that Activision had picked up the rights.
    Now it's just confirmed

    Yeah the news on Gamespot was just in their rumor section. The confirmation was from the Activision show yesterday.
