X-Men: The Last Stand director Brett Ratner has signed on to produce an animated TV series based on Farmville. Deadline reports production will be handled by Canadian company Six Eleven media. No network has picked up the series yet. Ratner’s also behind the Rush Hour series and the upcoming Hercules: The Thracian Wars; he described FarmVille as “one of the most exciting brands out there today” with “endless” cross-platform opportunities. An Angry Birds cartoon is moving forward this year, too.

EA has released an extended version of its live action Need for Speed: Most Want TV advert. Plenty of beautiful and overpriced cars are on show. Watch them face an equally sexy set of police vehicles in a video that makes me wish I had more money.

Soon, you’ll be able to watch Angry Birds while playing Angry Birds, cuddling Angry Birds, and keeping nice and toasty with your Angry Birds Snuggie.
Ok, that last one isn’t real, but let’s be realistic here: it’s only a matter of time.

De Blob’s back! And the Syfy network is… still here. Yeah! So, logically, it only makes sense that the two would team up, right?
No. It really doesn’t. But they’re doing it anyway.

According to this GI story, Sony’s confirmed it’s shipped 85,000 units of PlayTV in the UK.
The hardware add-on, which acts as a freeview box and personal video recorder, went on sale last weekend for £70.
Everyone we know who has one can’t stop banging on about it. Which is clearly why 85,000 of them are now hitting shops countrywide.

According to this, TV shows recorded using PlayTV on PlayStation 3 can then be dragged off the machine as MPEG2 files onto any memory stick or PC.
“We’ve talked to our legal department about it,” said Mark Bunting, a producer at Sony’s Cambridge Studio. “All we’re doing is moving it out of PlayTV and to the cross-media bar as if it was any other recording. So hopefully users won’t do stuff they shouldn’t do with it.
“If I’m prohibited from getting the recording off and storing it somewhere else because some other dude is making money out of selling it, then I’d rather they brought the law in to catch those people.”
Sounds fine to us. We’ll never, ever use this, but it’s nice to know it’s there.
