MTV and Jerry Bruckheimer to form new game studio

MTV Games said Wednesday that it has teamed up with Jerry Bruckheimer, the renowned movie and television producer, to create unique new video games.

"By joining MTV Games with Bruckheimer's blockbuster track record for creating successful entertainment properties in film and television, both new and experienced gamers can expect what promises to be some of the most entertaining, challenging, and unique games," said MTV in a presser.

Bruckheimer is best known for his work on Top Gun, Armageddon, Enemy of the State, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, Black Hawk Down, Pirates of the Caribbean, and National Treasure.

Given his lack of experience in games, Bruckheimer will rely on his storytelling chops and Hollywood contacts when making new titles.

"Video games represent a new and innovative medium for what we've always tried to do, which is to tell great stories," he said. "I look forward to working with MTV Games to create new original game stories, always looking for ways to innovate the medium."

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
