X Factor game threatens a console near you

Koch company Deep Silver has today announced an exclusive agreement with Simon Cowell's FremantleMedia Enterprises to produce a console game based on "talent" show The X Factor.

The outfit plans to produce versions for the Xbox 360, Nintendo Wii and PlayStation3, by Christmas this year, so there may be no hiding from it.

"To be able to work with a phenomenal brand such as The X Factor is an incredible opportunity," sang Georg Larch, international marketer at Deep Silver.

"With the developer, Hydravision Entertainment, Deep Silver will be creating a game that is a true adaptation of the show from the hilarity of the auditions to the excitement of the live show; we will be testing the singing skills of the player and will feature the sharp critique of the judges."

The game will appear in multiple languages in numerous European territories where the show is made, including the UK, France, Belgium, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Italy, Germany, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden.

A holiday in Greece may be in order... they could do with the business.

According to the press release, "the game will capture the excitement and entertainment of the TV show and will include auditions, boot camp and judges’ houses levels as well as several game modes from individual career to duets and battles so family and friends can all enjoy together."

That's probably enough of that.
