This may be the correct route to take in the future: when you have a big-budget movie, maybe it's best to produce a budget video game adaptation that people might actually buy. Here's the opening cinematic for Watchmen: The End is Nigh, which will be available on the PSN tomorrow. It'll only cost you twenty bucks, and thanks to new gameplay trailers and previews, we have high hopes for this downloadable superhero adventure. The movie might be pretty good, too, so maybe after playing the game, you'll head down to the theaters on Friday. Perhaps best of all, The End is Nigh might be deeper and offer more longevity than your typical downloadable title.
