    Eidos secure rights to Eastenders videogame

    Okay, so it's a slow news day, but we thought you might - kinda - be interested to learn that Eidos have secured the license to publish a game based on the hit TV soap, Eastenders.

    It'll probably be rubbish and will almost definitely sell very few copies indeed.

    If I could be bothered I would draw a Venn diagram of people who buy computer games against people who have a great interest in Eastenders. It would look like a bird's eye view of Grant Mitchell headbutting Phil Mitchell...

    oh no, I've been rumbled.

    Well, they're almost certain it's out this month. I was going to post about it, but they have said that there is still one more thing that they're waiting for, for Microsoft to approve.

    So, it's still not 100%, but they seem confident.

    Re: Eidos secure rights to Eastenders videogame

    I dunno... with the amount of people who die in Walford at a fairly regular basis I reckon a FPS would be fun. Imagine playing as Pat Butcher firing those gold earrings at high speed at everyone or playing as Peggie and using her subsonic scream of " Phil " or "Grant" to render the opposition stunned like a flashbang while she batters them over the head with the bust of Queen Vic.

    Saying that a "hitman" style game where you've got to knock off the cast would also be a fun idea... but I bet nothing I've type will appear in it.

    Re: Eidos secure rights to Eastenders videogame

    It'd probably be amusing for at least 5 minutes if you could go on a rampage and kill the entire cast.

    Nooooooooooooooooooo!!!!! it's just wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong!

    Who the hell is their target audience on this one? Unless they do a Postal style take on it, it can only be pants... and old soiled ones at that.

    I would soooo buy that game! Sniping out of the squares windows and taking out people working in the market

    Anything related to Hitman/GTA would be comedy but lets face it, it will be some random piece of crap where you walk around the square "living the eastend life"
