The Hollywood and Games summit is still going on in LA and has already had an effect on our front pages in the last 24 hours, but it looks like things may yet get even better than Clive Barker's bigging up of the video game medium.

Three words; Lightsaber, Wii, w00t!

Jim Ward, the Lucasarts President was asked by Newsweek at the Hollywood convention just why there wasn't a lightsaber-wielding game yet available for the Wii, given that all Lucasarts does anymore is churn out Star Wars merchandise and tease gamers with rumours.

His response, according to Gamasutra, about the possibility of a lightsaber game for the Wii was short, but promising;

"We're all over that, and internally we have already played a lightsaber game on the Wii. It's a lot of fun, and we'll get there."

So, it turns Lucasart has apparently doubled on it's previously mentioned strengths; it's now teasing us with rumours about Star Wars merchandise. Gee, thanks for that.

Reckon a Jedi game on the Wii would be any good, or is it going to be more Star Wars Kid than Jedi Knight? Let us know your thoughts in our forums, or we'll slaughter the younglings!
