Take-Two Interactive, the parent company 2K Games, 2K Sports, and Rockstar Games, has agreed to publish future WWE-licensed wrestling games.
World Wrestling Entertainment-based games were previously licensed to THQ before the company went bankrupt at the end of last year. The 2K deal confirms previous rumors that Take-Two was interested in the property.
While eating ice cream with my colleague Josh Horowitz to somehow hype the release of his new movie "12 Rounds," WWE star John Cena started dropping names of games he loves. These include "Super Mario Bros." Okay. And "Ikari Warriors." Interesting. And "RollerCoaster Tycoon." Seriously?
Cena also pleads for gamers to look him up online and let him beat you at "Red Alert" on the PC. I'm not sure which "Command & Conquer: Red Alert" he has in mind, but maybe you can track him down by his gamer name, which seems to be "RichardHammerbush33". (When you're done watching the above clip, watch Cena rap-battle Josh.)
