Hub Universe Game?
Disney has Toon Town, Cartoon Network, has Fusion Fall, Nick has Shockwave, so would you play a Hub Universe game or buy downloadable game G.I. Joe, Jem, Transformers, etc on a game service like Shockwave? Thanks for reading.
While it's true that Hasbro may have enough properties for such a project, it's far too soon for something like that. The Hub's not even a year old yet; the shows and characters need to get more episodes and exposure under their collective belts before Hasbro even considers doing something along the lines of FusionFall. The channel doesn't even have a West Coast or HD feed yet. Launching a multi-show crossover game now would just look like a cheaply made, quickly thrown together farce constructed solely to make a few bucks, and it wouldn't make a lot of bucks since there are still several people who don't receive The Hub.

I don't know, I think some crossovers might provide comedy gold if nothing else...
COBRA COMMANDER: Mindbender! I believe one of your... creations has escaped from the lab.
MINDBENDER: Don't tell me CC, it's gone on a bloody rampage through the compound. Am I right?
COBRA COMMANDER: Not exactly, it seems to be... playing with Serpentor.
FLUTTERSHY: Awww, who's a good snakey-wakey? *rubs Serpentor's belly*
Good points Starbro. I know the Hub just launched on October 10th and believe me I wasn't thinking of them launching it this year. I guess I was just trying to get Toon Zone members' feedback in case Hasbro and Discovery just finished next year's seasons and wanted to laying the foundation for this game which would probably take 2-4 years to make. It's possible that they've already developed some of their characters 2012 and 2013 but I'm glad you posted cause I think you're right. I posted this too early and they are probably still building. Wouldn't it be cool if Discovery gave their Hub a Saturday morning block on their main channel. I have about 75 channels with my package but the only way I can watch Hubworld is through their website.

At the very least we should put the Cutie Crusaders in the world of Jem, they could have one of those jobber bands in the first Battle Of The Bands.
Great idea Zoombie! Hasbro is very cool!
