THQ gets 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand

We so totally didn't see this coming. THQ has snapped up the publishing rights to 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand. You know, the video game adaptation of the hip hop icon's legendary quest to regain stolen treasure in the Middle East alongside the G-Unit. Hey, say what you will – THQ's VP of global brand management, Brad Carraway, calls it, "the ultimate package for gamers and hip hop fans alike," not people who like relevant and/or good plots.

Mr. Cent himself seems particularly pleased that his game will finally see release after being dropped by Activision Blizzard. Because now he can fulfill your fantasy ... you know the one. Where you, as The Half-Dollar Man says, "
maybe even join me or one of the G-Unit online." Early 2009 can't come soon enough.
