Whatever Happened to Pong?

According to Reuters, there is a "Taxi Driver" game in the works:

"Majesco Entertainment Co. has acquired a licensing agreement with Sony Pictures Consumer Products to publish ['Taxi Driver'] as a video game. Edison, N.J.-based Majesco said Tuesday that it will publish a video game next year for next-generation consoles to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the film.

...The original movie was nominated for four Academy Awards, including best picture. '"Taxi Driver" remains one of the most iconoclastic films of our time,' Majesco marketing vp Ken Gold said. 'Compelling and powerful, the movie ensnares viewers in the seedy urban world of New York cabbie Travis Bickle, and we hope to do likewise with our game.'"

We are so close to the "My Dinner With Andre" video game, I can almost taste it.
