While Hugo Weaving might be the voice of Megatron in Michael Bay's Transformers, the developers working on the game based on the movie understand nostalgia well, as they cast the voices of Megatron and Optimus Prime fromthe 80s cartoon, Frank Welker and Peter Cullen, to assume their roles once again in Transformers: The Game. It's hitting the PS3, Wii, Xbox 360, PS2, PC, DS and PSP (phew) day and date with the movie, July 4, 2007.
Speaking to GameSpot, Activision's head of production Laird Malamed said: "As Transformers fans, we knew the importance of having the well-known voices of Optimus Prime and Megatron in the game." Wellplayed, Activision. Well played.
