Remember the screen shots of the X-Factor game from last week? Pretty disappointing as there was no sign of digital Simon Cowell and now we know why. He’s not in the game and neither are Louis, Cheryl or Dannii. Instead the title will include new digital judges. A spokeswoman for developers Deep Silver said,
“Although we do not want to talk too much about why, we can confirm Simon Cowell, Cheryl Cole and the other TV X Factor judges will not be appearing in the official game”.
Now I may be being a bit thick here but I always thought the X-Factor is about the judges as much as it is the singers, get rid of Cowell and Co. and you lose a lot of the show’s character and appeal.
The game will be released on December 12th and may offer ‘future online installments’ (a.k.a. DLC).
