Britney Spears is getting her own mobile game

Remember that Kim Kardashian: Hollywood game that we all scoffed at, and then laughed about when we made Matthew review it? Laugh all you like, but the game was downloaded 22.8 million times, and made $43.3 million in profit in just five months. Mobile games based around celebrities seem to be the cash bubble du jour – with even racist, butter-scoffers like Paula Deen getting in on the act. We’ve also heard Kanye West might be on a mobile Kanye Quest to open up and pilfer some Kanye Chests. The next celeb to jump on the mobile game bandwagon is Britterny Thpears!

Yes, it looks like the past-her-prime, possibly delusional and very likely unhinged late-90’s pop tart will be lending her “voice, likeness, and creative influence” to a Britney Spears mobile game.

“I am thrilled to add Grammy Award-winning legend Britney Spears to Glu’s growing list of partners as we continue to expand our celebrity gaming platform,” said CEO Niccolo de Masi.

“We anticipate the title resonating tremendously with Ms. Spears’ nearly 90 million multi-generational social followers around the world.”

But that’s not all! They’re doing the same with the somewhat-more-relevant Katy Perry too!

“Katy is arguably the most recognized musician in America following her Super Bowl XLIX Halftime performance this past Sunday. She is a cultural icon and we expect to translate key elements of her success into an innovative, highly entertaining mobile experience,” said de Masi.

“We anticipate that Katy’s significant global audience, including more than 170 million* fans on social media, will make her a strong gaming partner for Glu.”

And once these games also make enough money to make the average working person go foetal and cry, expect many, many more similar celebrity games.

I weep.

      I’m just concerned about the impact such games has on the industry. Why bother with anything original when you can make a game about a celeb for next to nothing and wait for all the MT.

        Me too man! This is really ridiculous, but, hopefully if it continues, the market will be flooded with these cheap cash grabs and people will get tired of them, shunning them off to the side where they belong, where people can take a satisfactory dump on the little remembrance of the poor example of meaningless literature they contributed to the whole of the gaming community…

          I think he has a secret crush on the header image, and upon closer “inspection”, it was discovered…

      What makes you think a mobile device would be able to handle that?
      They’d have to make it for the old Nokia

        “boring” is the word for it.
        mayweather is a great boxxer, but calling that a fight is perhaps pushing it a bit.

      When boxing is on the verge of disappearing, they produce this…. “Fight of the century” ….er no.

      Frankly boxing is dead and this is just another nail in the coffin.

        Indeed, plus Mayweather’s smug and arrogant attitude has the people switching the channel. He’s not the ambassador the sport needs. I didn’t even bother to get up for the fight.

    You know when people justify shit by saying “let the free market decide”? This is the kind of thing the free market decides on.
