Though most likely perturbed by having their fun ruined by the ESRB last month, Ubisoft has gone ahead and made Grey's Anatomy for the Nintendo Wii, DS, and PC official.
The Grey's Anatomy games sounds like a cross between Trauma Surgeon and a an adventure game, with players taking on the roles of their favourite characters as they live, love, and do whatever it is they do on the show. Ubisoft VP of worldwide licensing Christian Salomon seems to know.
"In Grey's Anatomy: The Video Game, fans will have a chance to take on the roles of all of their favourite doctors in an all-new original storyline. As each doctor, players will make important personal and professional decisions, explore the direct relationships with each other, and perform the delicate surgeries the series is known for, all through fun and engaging game play."
I'd make a snarky comment here, but my mother has actually really enjoyed Ubisoft's CSI games, and will probably enjoy the hell out of this one to, the nutter.

Knight as George O'Malley, Chandra Wilson as Miranda Bailey, James Pickens, Jr. as Richard Webber, Sara Ramirez as Callie Torres, Eric Dane as Mark Sloan, Chyler Leigh as Lexie Grey and Brooke Smith as Erica Hahn.
