Tetris is Coming to Xbox One and PS4

Because what you're looking for on your next-gen console is Tetris.

Quick question: What game are you really excited to play on your shiny, new Xbox One or PlayStation 4? I'll hazard a guess no one answered, 'Tetris'. (Well, you probably did because you've read the headline already...) Yesterday, R.B.I. Baseball was revived; today, it's Tetris.

Ubisoft - yes, Ubisoft - has announced a partnership with the Tetris Company to bring Tetris to Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The game celebrates its 30th anniversary in 2014, so it's time for a new version of the classic title.

"We welcome Ubisoft to the Tetris family. I am 100% sure they will develop one of the best versions of the Tetris game ever," said Tetris Company managing director Henk B. Rogers.

"We're very excited to start working with this world-renowned brand, and can't wait to combine Ubisoft's expertise and all the capacities of next-gen consoles to create an exciting new Tetris experience for fans," added Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot.

No screenshots or specific release date were given and Ubisoft hasn't said how they're sprucing up the game for 2014. This is the most unexpected news I've written all week, but I admit I'm pretty excited if the price is right. I remember playing Tetris over and over again on my original Game Boy, because it was one of the few Game Boy games that wouldn't put me in adolescent rage. (Seriously Super Mario Land and Operation C were hard.) $5 to $10 with online play is what my heart desires, Ubisoft!
