    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

    ACTIVISION AND HASBRO TEAM UP TO CREATE
    TRANSFORMERS PRIME™ VIDEO GAME BASED ON THE HIT TELEVISION SERIES

    New Action Brawler Game Planned to Launch this Year Exclusively on Nintendo Platforms

    Santa Monica, CA - March 15, 2012- Activision Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, Inc. (Nasdaq:ATVI), is bringing the ultimate TRANSFORMERS video game experience to kids of all ages with the TRANSFORMERS PRIME video game. Based on the hit animated television show produced by Hasbro Studios and currently airing on The Hub television network in the U.S., the game lets fans play as their favorite AUTOBOT characters and embark on an action-packed adventure to save the earth from the evil MEGATRON and his new secret weapon. Players step into the roles of OPTIMUS PRIME, BUMBLEBEE, ARCEE, AUTOBOT RATCHET, BULKHEAD and more as they explore unique vistas all around the world with brawler-style combat and diverse driving sequences. Along the way, gamers cultivate friendships with Jack, Miko and Raf - the human characters from the show - as Team Prime sets out to protect mankind and eliminate the DECEPTICONS once and for all.

    "Hasbro Studios has done a phenomenal job with the TRANSFORMERS PRIME television show," said David Oxford, Executive Vice President at Activision Publishing. "We are collaborating closely with the series creators to capture all the adventure, humor and friendships from the show to create an authentic action experience for TRANSFORMERS fans of all ages to enjoy."

    "Hasbro is thrilled to be working with Activision again on an exciting new TRANSFORMERS video game," said Mark Blecher, Senior Vice President of Digital Media and Marketing at Hasbro. "The TRANSFORMERS PRIME animated series has resonated strongly with kids and fans and we're looking forward to delivering this new way to experience the adventure."

    TRANSFORMERS PRIME will hit stores later this year and is being developed exclusively for Nintendo's Wii™ system and the Nintendo 3DS™ hand-held system by Now Production (NowPro), and for the Nintendo DS™ hand-held system by Altron Corporation. The game has not yet been rated by the ESRB.

    Not surprising, considering their 'one TF game a year' thing.

    I would rather have a stand-alone game made for Wii and 3DS than have they try to do crappy ports of WFC like happened last time. Good to see that's how they will roll.

    THOUGH THAT DOESN'T FORGIVE THE LACK OF PC FoC!

    Nothing for the PS3? Cool...now I save money.

    Besides, the PS3 will have Fall of Cybertron, so at least I will have that. Nice job Hasbro. I'm beginning to think that they hate money for some reason.

    They must really be aiming for the kid demographic being Nintendo-only. After the short lived Wii phase, most adults I know sold it off for a real game console. I don't think I'll be buying this because I don't want to borrow my nephew's Wii or DS just to play.
