The Fast and the Furious headed to PS2

  Universal Studios Interactive announced today that it will be releasing The Fast and the Furious for the Playstation 2 in 2003. With the acquisition of the videogame rights to the movie and upcoming sequel, Universal expects the game to be an extreme success, as it will combine dangerous tricks, wild challenges, and crazy stunts with mission-based gameplay. The company is also planning on receiving the rights to all the vehicles used in the actual movie.

   "The adrenaline is still pumping from the first movie," states Tim Rothwell, senior vice president marketing and merchandising, USCPG. "We are partnering with top manufacturers and brands in the compact car and performance market to develop long-term co-branded licensed products that The Fast and the Furious fans are ready to embrace."

   "The ultimate games capturing the street-racing life, UI's upcoming titles will captivate fans of The Fast And The Furious movie as well as hardcore racing game fans," states Jim Wilson, president of Universal Interactive. "The thrill of speed will come alive on next-gen and handheld systems to the beat of top Universal Music artists as players customize import and muscle cars, complete dangerous missions and compete in harrowing street races."
