Mercury Meltdown Revolution Rolls toward the Wii™

Ignition Entertainment to Incorporate Wii Remote Motion Control into Brain-Teaser’s Gameplay

SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today Ignition Entertainment™ announced it will publish the addictive puzzle game Mercury Meltdown Revolution™ for the Wii™ home video game system.

Its a PSP game, right? Not PS2?

TJ SpykeDecember 16, 2006

There was a PSP launch game calle "Archer Maclean's Mercury". Then a sequel called Mercury Meltdown also released on the PSP. Then there was a PS2 port of Mercury Meltdown called "Mercury Meldown Remix", containing levels from the first Mercury game, was announced in September.

It's not just announced, it's on store shelves already.

Yay, PS2 ports, just what the Wii needs face-icon-small-thumbsdown.gif

Why not? Shows those Sony fanboys that what Sony has isn't Sony's to keep.

BranDonk KongDecember 17, 2006

Yeah, but that only hurts Sony when it's a franchise that sells a lot of games. GTA on XBox = hurt Sony. Mercury Meltdown on Wii = hurts the wallets of people that buy it.

KDR_11kDecember 17, 2006

No, why? The PS2 isn't a better choice than the GC because of its big franchises but because it has more than just the big hitters. The Wii needs more than just the big hit titles, it needs its "background noise" as well.

You know I figure that revolution will have additional levels as well.

This game was one of the reasons I even thought about a PSP. I'm psyched it's coming out for Wii. The tilt sensing controller will make it a better game in almost every way over the PS2 version.

BranDonk KongDecember 17, 2006

OK, I lied, I know nothing about this game. I did see a video on XPlay I believe though, the graphics made me want to cry. Maybe it was the PSP or PS2 version.
