EA signs '300' movie director to three-game deal

Zack Snyder will be the creative lead of three, unannounced EA games.

Much like the publishing giant has already done with Steven Spielberg, Hollywood director Zack Snyder will be the creative lead of three, unannounced EA games.

Though financial details were not disclosed, EA announced that Snyder will work with the production team at EA Los Angeles, the same studio Spielberg used to develop Boom Blox for Wii. Regrettably, no further details about the type of games or when they might release were unveiled, but the deal also extends to any movie adaptions of said games.

Snyder's previous work includes "Dawn of the Dead," "300," and the upcoming film adaptation of the "Watchmen."

The news arrives as movies and video games continue their mutually beneficial and close relationship. On October 17, 20th Century Fox will release Max Payne, the latest film based on a video game starring Mark Wahlberg.

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.

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

Andrew Mitsi


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.

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.
