It’s been a full 12 hours since I heard about this announcement and I still don’t know why it’s happening. That’s right kids; ABC and Ubisoft have teamed up to bring Grey’s Anatomy to the Wii, DS and PC sometime this year.
In Grey’s Anatomy: The Video Game, players will take control of the doctors from the show and make decisions in their personal and professional lives. Players will get to perform surgeries and hopefully have lots and lots of sex just like in the TV show. Yes, I’m admitting that I’ve watched the show. I watch anything at least a few times. All I really know about Grey’s Anatomy is that it’s about doctors having crazy surgeries and f*cked up personal lives. Which leads me to believe that the game is going to basically be a Western version of Trauma Center.
And now, since I had to write up this story, enjoy a gallery of Katherine Heigl photos!
