Default Who has bought these 'Burger King' video games for themselves?

I'm just curious because I understand that 2 million copies of these three Burger King-based video games have been sold. They only cost $3.99 and they look decent, so I'm wonder how many of you who post here has gotten atleast one copy of one or more of these games? Are they any fun?

I'm not too interested in those of you who just got it for somebody else *cough*cheapskate*cough*.

They're fun for a while, but hard to beat.

I personally thought they would be pretty bad, but after getting them at such a cheap price, I'd say they're worth it if you have friends over.

And theres sneak king if you dont want friends. @_@

My Dad and I really want to get the games because they look so funny. Plus, we got only one game for the X-Box, so, yeah...

I doubt it, though. XD

Obviously Burger king hired some game development company (most likely a small unknown one) to make these games. You have to admit, though, that it's an innovative idea (especially if the games are fun to play even at $3.99).


Actually, it's not the first time that a fast food chain has had video games made based on their chain. Virgin Games made a couple of video games with characters from the McDonald's restaurants. In both games, you play as one of two kids named Mick and Mac and you run into Ronald McDonald, Grimace, the Hamburgler, and others. In fact, the NES version was like Super Mario Bros. 3 except you collect small McDonald's Golden Arces instead of coins.

However, the 'Mick & Mac' games were sold in stores, not at McDonald's.

If you're a small-time video game development company, it wouldn't seem so dumb.

I need to get some solid facts about the makers of these Burger King games. I don't know if these games were already made and was modified to have Burger King characters or if Burger King hired a game company to make these games.

These are games made by an independant company, made for burger king to be distributed. The company may be owned by Burger King itself, though.

I did a little digging and it seems that the company that made the games is Microsoft (or is atleast owned by Microsoft).

I don't know how reliable Kutaku.com is, but there ya go.
