    I don't know, I think judging by the very last bit of the clip I think Welker's still got the voice down the same as he did in the 80s, but that's just me I guess

    If that's true, that might be the ending for the Decepticon campaign.

    I think he's awesome in the PSP game. He works well for it.

    Ah, perhaps TF2

    I'd imagine that the explanation is some combination of:

    1. Different people producing/directing the movie and game = different choices.

    2. Game and movie voice recording were done at different times. Conflicts happen.

    3. $$$

    Pretty nice interview, if a little short. He's still got the voice, it'll be great to hear him in the game.

    To me it seemed different that his original take on Megatron from the Gen1 cartoon, it seemed more deeper in tone to me...

    Natural as Welker has aged 20+ years since then, but the line at the end is pretty much dead on as I remember Megatron.

    Nope. They needed to record lines for Megatron, Paramount couldn't tell them who it was yet, so they said "Fuck it, we'll hire Welker". This was stated in an interview that surfaced a little while back.
