Would You Play A Breaking Bad Game? Sony's New Trademark Thinks So

The show may have come to an end, but the Breaking Bad train continues to steam ahead for AMC. There are many ways the franchise could manifest itself beyond TV series and it looks like Sony might be exploring one of the more exciting options: a video game.

This post was originally published on Gizmodo Australia:

Christopher Groux over at Design & Trend picked up on a trademark application filed with Europe's The Office for Harmonization in the Internal Market (OHIM). The filing is rather brief — aside from listing "Sony Pictures Television Inc." as the owner, there's not much too it.

Oh, except for this bit:

9 Computer gaming software; gaming software that generates or displays wager outcomes of gaming machines, downloadable software in the nature of a mobile application for playing games; games playable via a global computer network, handheld electronic devices, portable video players, portable music players, smart phones, laptop computers, handheld computers, table computers, cellular phones, pagers, personal digital assistants, digital television set-top boxes, interactive digital television controllers and programmable digital television recorders; operational computer game software sold or leased together with reconfigurable casino and lottery gaming equipment.

It goes on to mention "casino and lottery gaming equipment" and "gaming services, namely on-line gambling", so it's entirely possible Sony just wants to fill Vegas with Breaking Bad-themed poker machines, or put together a lacklustre, easily forgettable mobile title.

That first paragraph however leaves the doors open to some sort of actual computer game. What sort of game? Something LEGO-inspired perhaps? Or even GTA-flavoured? Take a guess!

    Had my time with the show. Enjoyed the ride but moved on. So to answer the header nah I'm good. Bitch.

    The problem with making a game is that there can't be any rewards for drug use in Australia. If they do tie rewards to the Meth then we can expect insta RC.

    As much as I loved the show, I don't see myself playing this. I also don't see this making it past the classification board. This will be refused classification, people will then show interest in it, it will get pirated, and then there will be a back flip with the board and it will get an R rating. Then parents will all be up in arms about it, Kmart will pull it from their stores, people will announce a boycott on Kmart again.

    Then all the parents who got the game pulled will sit around with their children watching the news while they drink a bottle of wine and wear their sweatshop made clothes by children who make less than 2 cents a day and play on their devices that are made by people who earn less than you make in a hour. But hey, at lest the world is a better place now that we can't make digital meth.
