Activision, Inc. announced that the company is currently in development on three launch titles for both the PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system and Wii (formerly code named Revolution) platforms. In 2007, the company will release 10 games for the three next-generation platforms including X-Men: The Official Game for the Xbox 360.
Activision's PlayStation 3 system launch lineup will take advantage of the hardware's multi-core processing to deliver smoother, faster gaming experiences that will closely resemble feature film quality values. The company's launch games for Nintendo's Wii system will fully utilize the Wii's revolutionary freehand-style controller by offering more immersive gameplay.
Activision's product lineup based on feature films include:
X-Men: The Official Game catapults players into an original storyline that serves as a prelude to Twentieth Century Fox and Marvel Studios' upcoming film, X-Men: The Last Stand, and allows them to command the distinct powers of Wolverine, Nightcrawler and Iceman as they face off against formidable enemies, battle through massive environments and embark on an epic quest to save mutant-kind.
