In a world where Jeopardy is king, the vast majority of people haven’t had the awesome experience of playing Jellyvision’s comedy and trivia mixture, You Don’t Know Jack. The game has been floating around in various forms for over a decade, but most recently has only been playable on the Internet. According to a post on YDKJ’sofficial website, this may all change very soon:
… hopefully, in the upcoming weeks, you'll hear some real big news about a real big deal we've made with some real bigshots who can help get YOU DON'T KNOW JACK back to where it belongs - in the home of every living man, woman, and child, and most elves ….
At this point there is only room for speculation, but YDKJ absolutely screams Xbox Live Arcade or PlayStation Network release. The games have always been small, had simple controls, and some pretty heavy popular culture appeal. It sounds like a perfect fit to me, especially if Cookie comes back.
What do you guys think? Have you ever had an opportunity to check out YDKJ? Do you think PSN or XBLA is a good application for it?
