Sony Computer Entertainment Europe will publish a tie-in game for the upcoming Hindi sci-fi superhero movie Ra.One, the company said Monday. The game is being developed by Mumbai-based Trine Games (Street Cricket Champions, Gothic 3: Forsaken Gods) for the PlayStation 3 (via the PlayStation Network) and the PlayStation 2. The game will serve as a prequel to the high profile film, and is being written by lead actor and screenplay writer Shah Rukh Khan. "We have always wanted to bring Bollywood IPs on PlayStation platform as the way of connecting to Indian audience," said PlayStation India's Atindriya Bose. "Ra.One has the right mix of action, environment and imagination that is required to make a good PlayStation game, and with Shah Rukh Khan's immense passion and understanding of PlayStation games, we have chanced upon a very unique opportunity of a great game with Indian IP." There are approximately 6,750,000 PlayStation 2s and 91,000 registered PSN users in India, according to a recent interview with Bose.
