The Movies console canned

Poor PC take-up blamed.

Those of you wondering about the fate of the promised console versions of Lionhead's The Movies have your answer: they've been canned due to weak sales of the PC game.

As we pointed out yesterday, the PC version's inspired people to create all sorts of amusing little vignettes to represent their in-game movie studios - but apparently not enough.

Still, you shouldn't discount the PC version anyway - as you can see from the newly released demo, it's an interesting blend of empire building and creativity.

A bit like stealing your sister's crayons, then, except with far more kicking and screaming in the aftermath.
