In News by Erin L. Cox

After last week’s Publishing Perspectives story about Nintendo releasing “100 Classic Books” in June, it seems funny to have Random House announce that they are now in the development of video games of their own.

I’d say it’s a touch of “Freaky Friday,” but maybe this is the future of publishing companies, to work with all forms of entertainment.  We already have close ties to the film, television, and radio industries, why not video games too? 

What The Wall Street Journal did not report in the story was whether or not these video games are based on stories from Random House books or if these stories behind the video games are original.
