News: Would you like a game with that?
Microsoft and Burger King have announced they will be teaming up this holiday season to offer gamers a trio of Xbox games (that are compatible with the Xbox 360) to their customers.
On November 19, Burger King will have Big Bumpin', Pocketbike Racer and Sneak King available for $3.99 with the purchase of a value meal. Each of the games will allow players to play as famous Burger King characters like The King, Brooke Burke and the Subservient Chicken.
Big Bumpin' will place players into a bumper car with three other players. It will feature Xbox Live play and a ton of "stages".
Pocketbike Racer will no doubt be exactly as its title describes: Burger King characters on pocketbikes. Splitscreen and Xbox Live play will be included.
Finally, Sneak King (sneaking, get it?) will be a stealth action game featuring the King scaring the bejesus out of someone and then giving them a burger.
While these games will probably be short on gameplay (they retail for less than the price of the cheapest XBLA game), there's something strangely compelling about playing a game based on the adventures of The Burger King.
All three games will be available until December 24.
And that seems worth $3.99.
