BLADE RUNNER GAME FAILED TO SEE THE FUTURE

By CBR Staff Writer

Buyers who rush to buy the Blade Runner game when it comes out in November will be able to take part in an additional teaser: spot the defunct corporation. Based on the cult 1982 film, the action takes place in 2019 but the movie-makers’ gifts of prophecy are not at the same heights as their creative talents. According to the Times, there is a logo for Koss headphones (bankrupt in 1984), Bell Telephone (broken up by the US government) and RCA (taken over by General Electric).
