TV Squad Ten: Shows that deserve to have their own video game

TV shows that deserve to be video gamesThere is nothing inherently wrong with turning a TV series into a video game spinoff. It can fill in the gaps between seasons to quell the viewers' hunger, let audiences explore characters from new perspectives and even give the more hardcore couch potatoes some much needed exercise even if they only burned 1/100ths of a calorie solely through their thumbs.

The problem is video game developers pick TV shows that should never even become a travel sized board game. Developers have given the greenlight to games based on shows like American Idol, Desperate Housewives and even ... Grey's Anatomy?!? I hope that last one was a first-person shooter.

There are far better shows that offer far more entertaining elements for a kick-ass video game. These are the shows that should be next in line for a pixelated re-treatment.

More details on Sony's PlayTV PVR add-on for the PS3 - VIDEO

by Brad Linder, posted Jan 19th 2008 10:57AM

Sony has released a trailer explaining how the upcoming PlayTV will help turn your Playstation3 into a personal video recorder. My favorite part of the video is probably the part where a friendly voice tells you there are 4 easy steps for installing the PlayTV. Step four is to follow the on-screen instructions, which probably means there's really quite a few more steps to follow.

Anyway, you get a few peeks at the PlayTV interface, and it looks like it's got a pretty decent electronic program guide and program preview menu. If you have a PSP, you can also use the Remote Play feature which looks pretty awesome. Remote Play lets you watch live or recorded shows on your PSP over an internet connection from any WiFI hotspot. When we first heard about the PlayTV, it sounded like you'd be able to transfer recorded programs to your Playstation Portable, but this is a way cooler feature.

Unfortunately for those of us in the US, the PlayTV is designed for PAL, not NTSC right now. As such, it will be available first in the UK, France, Italy, Germany and Spain. A US version could still be in the works, but there's no word on when it would be available.
