ESRB slips, Dies Hard

Ratings board leaks news of summer blockbuster film-to-game adaptation for Xbox 360.

by

As it is wont to do, the Entertainment Software Rating Board let slip word on an unannounced game coming out in the near future. Appearing in the game rater's database was an Xbox 360 listing for the summer blockbuster Live Free or Die Hard. As with the PG-13-rated film, the video game adaptation has been rated T for Teen, with modifiers for blood and violence.

As per the ESRB's site, Sensory Sweep will be on development duties for the upcoming game. Last year, the developer gained attention with Street Fighter II' Hyper Fighting on the Xbox 360. Thus far this year, the developer's work has included the DS version of Justice League Heroes as well as SnoCross 2: Featuring Blair Morgan for the PlayStation 2.

why they don't call it Die Hard 4.0? Whatever, as long as this game will present Bruce as the main character, i'll buy it. And please, why making it teen?

This movie might actually make a good game, seeing as how it skips the plot and sticks to action like crazy.

Grammatically correct in the middle ages, perhaps, but still ridiculous. Get with the times, GS!

"As it is wont to do..." is a grammatically correct phrase. Way to embarrass yourself, Murlow!

Read the first sentence. "As it is wont to do...". What the hell does that mean? Way to spellcheck, GS!

FrenziedRaldo24 > Noob, they are reporting about an unannounced game. Not something like Manhunt 2 or anything, just reporting. So stop whining about something you've no knowledge about. Oh boy, another movie-to-game adaptation... what a waste of a few bucks...

We don't give a damn about these ESRB second-tier ratings, stop trying to cash in with these articles just because of the Manhunt 2 fiasco, it's dead in the water.... okay? What are you talking about? Gamespot has been writing stories about new games inadvertently identified by the ESRB before their developers/publishers reveal their existence since long before either Hot Coffee for GTA or the Manhunt 2 fiasco.

ewww...Live free or die hard sucked so bad compared to other die hards. And it's a movie based game so it will suck incredibly much. I hype it a 4.

A Die Hard game? Won't work, especially not if it's based on the movie.

Anyone knocking the movie should actually watch it. For a PG-13 movie, there were plenty of vicious deaths, and profanity was abound (sh*t, d*ckh**d, a**hole were plentiful, just no f-word, and even then he used it but it was muffled by gun fire, on purpose of course). I just don't see a good game coming out of it. But a great way to end the series. Live Free Or Die Hard. Watch it, it was actually amazing.
