The upcoming Playstation 2 G1 video game TRANSFORMERS ( apparently Tatakai has been dropped out of the title) was in a recent issue of The Official Playstation Magazine. Nothing us Transfans didn't already know was in the article, and two pictures were on the page as well. One was of Starscream holding Megatron (transformed, of course) and the other was of Wheeljack fighting Decepticons, both of which have already surfaced online. Aparrently, the people at Playstation have no clue when the game is coming out either, and aren't sure if it's even coming the the US. Another tidbit on the page said that there was only one other G1 video game out there, while in fact there are four. One for NES, one for Famicon disk system ( no, not the same game), and two for the Commodore 64. I think all were Japanese only games, except for the C64 ones.
