No Whammies: Ubisoft reveals three classic game show titles

The best game show ever, without a doubt, is Press Your Luck. Why? The Whammy. Maybe I’m dating myself here (the show went off the air in 1986), but if you know what I’m talking about… you know what I’m talking about.

Ubisoft definitely knows what I’m talking about, as they’re planning to bring three classic game show titles to the Nintendo DS, Wii, and Windows PC this year. Press Your Luck 2010 (“No Whammies! Big money!”) will be joined by Family Feud 2010 and an “all new expanded version” of The Price is Right 2010.

It should be noted that Ubisoft’s last version of Price is Right for the Wii was abysmally low budget, almost the point where it was unplayable. We’d like to think they put a little bit more work into these new titles, as we’re excited by the idea of an animated videogame Whammy.

The games will be displayed at E3 next week exclusively at the Target Bullseye Longue; we’ll get back to you on the Whammy situation when we get more info.
