EA has announced that development is underway to bring Hasbro's legendary G.I. JOE brand to Wii and DS in summer 2009 to coincide with the theatrical release of the G.I. JOE: THE RISE OF COBRA live-action movie from Paramount Pictures and Spyglass Entertainment, in association with Hasbro, which opens in US cinemas on 7th August, 2009. EA will unveil a "first look" of the G.I. JOE video game at Hasbro's Showroom at Toy Fair on February 15-17, 2009 in New York City.They have the right mix of popular names right now. Marvel and Transformers.Hasbro has enough classic board game titles to continue to do well. What better way to pass time during a recession that gathered around the dinning room table playing a family board game?Many of the games and toys Hasbro manufactures and markets are far beyond recognizable brands, they're iconic. Games like Battleship, Candy Land, Risk, and Twister? I think kids will continue to play these games simply because their parents did. Their parents can "get" all of these because they had them when they were kids. Hasbro will continue to develop new and exciting toys, but I think these old classics will always form a core for their business. A good long play.Very well positioned in terms of rights to characters and franchises. Walk down the isles of Target or Wal-Mart and most of the toys are made by this firm. With the glut of superhero movies driving demand in youth for their products, and lot of them, I see HAS in a good position.Good financials and great business model.So buy up some shares and mak some mad money !
