Coming soon - Transformers: Farmyard Chums

It almost goes without saying that the Wii is a family-friendly console, offering a wide selection of experiences which are suitable for all ages. However, this latest piece of news makes us wonder if this perception of the platform has possibly gone a little too far.

Activision's upcoming Transformers title War for Cybertron is to be rechristened Transformers: Cybertron Adventures when it's launched on the Wii, even though the contents of the game will be almost identical to the 360 and PS3 editions.

Now we're all for toning down needlessly gratuitous violence in games but we fail to see how such a name change is going to soften the blow of battle-hungry robots blowing each other up, but maybe that's just us.
