Hits and Misses

MTV Launches Video Game Division, After Killing Video Game Division

This seems like a strange one two punch. Back in February Viacom announced that it was shutting down MTV Games, which published the blockbuster hit Rock Band.

Today Viacom announced that MTV Networks will launching a new arm, 345 Games, to produce titles based on popular television shows like Ugly Americans and Deadliest Warrior.

Hopefully someone found a little corporate synergy in this whole switcheroo.
