It’s hard to think of a licensed game that fit its source material better than Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game.

Also visiting today is the InFamous franchise, which has arrived on mobile devices for the first time.

"The world is an extraordinary place," said Irish games industry veteran Dave Dringenberg, CEO of San Francisco-based Replay Games at the launch. "The gamers have understood it into something truly amazing."

The launch of the new suite draws on IPs including Infamous, what Dringenberg called, "a mass-market IP". Around 60 seats were filled, with mixed reviews of what players expected, particularly on Xbox 360. "If you're hoping to experience everything, go somewhere else," he stressed.

Paramount was the lead provider on today's announcement, with her studio and partner On-Sleepers producing there. Other publishers behind the launch were Games Workshop, Warner Bros. and Disney. "Sony's digital counterpart to box supervision is where we fitted our headquarters invert," said WayForward's Manny Alberto, representing his Punch Pirates studio in support of the project.

Beyond that choice of platform, the choice to do a franchise launch on casual?s and consoles is deeply welcome, given the indomitable strength of the first three installments. Ellin Anderson, president of EA Los Angeles's creative development studio, insisted both genres are achieving "monster hits," though the indie market clearly restrains traditional successes.

"It provides both a good proposition," Anders Endow, vice president of entertainment and interactive marketing at publisher Crytek, who announced the upcoming Fuse, "Plus it's through the lens of the IP itself."

When Austrian Hotel tycoon Walter Bauersfeld died in the early hours of Monday morning in an Austrian hospital, TMZ first posted a chilling NYMag report on his final moments:

A senior administration official with knowledge of the circumstances tells us there were some signs of life in Walter's last hours, but he never regained consciousness. The official also tells us that Walter did have a very strong showing of brain activity at the slightest stimulation from machines in his hospital room...there's no way to decompress the brain any more than that.

"His family, executives at Deutsche Bank and [Walter Bauersfeld] Foundation are all devastated by the loss of a towering figure in the finance and business community," the official adds.

The heart of the question is, "Why?" Why didn't Bauersfeld get his part of a $181 million settlement with Greece before falling victim to a bizarre tale of Alzheimer's disease
