    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

    PETER CULLEN AND FRANK WELKER REPRISE ROLES OF OPTIMUS PRIME AND MEGATRON IN TRANSFORMERS: THE GAME

    Santa Monica, CA - April 6, 2007 - Legendary voice actors Peter Cullen and Frank Welker, the original voices of OPTIMUS PRIME and MEGATRON from the first TRANSFORMERS animated series, are set to star as the lead characters in TRANSFORMERS: The Game, from Activision, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATVI), developed under license from HPG, the licensing division of Hasbro, Inc. (NYSE:HAS).

    "As TRANSFORMERS fans, we knew the importance of having the well-known voices of OPTIMUS PRIME and MEGATRON in the game," said Laird Malamed, head of production, Activision, Inc. "Peter and Frank's signature voices bring the characters to life and will immerse a whole new generation of enthusiasts in the epic battle between the AUTOBOTS and DECEPTICONS."

    Based on "TRANSFORMERS," the upcoming live-action feature film due out on July 4th from DreamWorks Pictures and Paramount Pictures, in association with Hasbro, TRANSFORMERS: The Game lets players choose to protect the Earth as AUTOBOTS or destroy it as DECEPTICONS. Playing as OPTIMUS PRIME, BUMBLEBEE, MEGATRON, BARRICADE and others, gamers will experience the unstoppable power and massive scale of their favorite ROBOTS IN DISGUISE as they battle for Earth.

    TRANSFORMERS: The Game is in development by Traveller's Tales for Xbox 360 video game and entertainment systems from Microsoft, PLAYSTATION 3 computer entertainment system, WiiT, PlayStation 2 computer entertainment system and PC, and is rated "T" (Teen - Violence) by the ESRB. A PSP (PlayStation Portable) system version is being developed by Savage Entertainment and is currently rated RP (Rating Pending) by the ESRB. Two unique games for Nintendo DS, TRANSFORMERS: AUTOBOTS and TRANSFORMERS: DECEPTICONS, are being developed by Vicarious Visions, and are rated "E 10+" (Everyone 10 and older - Violence) by the ESRB.

    That interview is pretty cool, and yet another example of how even after 20+ years, both Welker and Cullen still have it.

    Very very nice.

    The music really reminds me of being in the command center in the Armada PS2 game.

    Good call. It really does, but that's definitely not a bad thing. The Armada game music, though minimalistic at times, was really well done.

    Anyone else see Bumblebee making like Peter Parker?

    Also, the Welker\Cullen stuff is great.
