There's already a *very* active top on the General BGG Forums, surprised nobody has posted on this side of the front!

You can read about it here and here

What seems interesting to me, is that the first article mentions that the rights have been acquired from FFG. Does this mean Paolo and FFG held the rights? Is that even legally possible, for one of the parties to sell the rights?

More than likely just another example of bad reporting.

They just noticed the words "Dust" and "based-on-the-boardgame", made a quick Google on Dust, found the old strategy board game and the FFG logo and then declared the license was taken from FFG.

I participated in 9 different press conferences in my life. Number of times journalists presented the info 100% correctly: 0 out of 9 (with multiple journalists in every occasion). Always a mistake or misinformation given to the public in every single instance.
The problem is that journalists take all about 5 seconds to understand something (which they often don't), and then try to focus only on what THEY think is important (and not who called the press conference think what is important... y'know, the reason they called them in the first place).

What i learned: take ANY news with a HUGE grain of salt. They can report a car crash in an ok fashion, but ask them to report anything that require them to understand something and you'll get bad information. Every. Single. Time.

To quote from the article in the first link:

"Lionsgate has acquired the big screen rights to Fantasy Flight Games’ popular sci-fi strategy board and miniature game series Dust "

I dunno, that seems a true statement to me. I mean it certainly isn't popular since Battlefront took over... whistle

Yeah colour me less than enthusiastic about Dust right now. I'm one of the folks who has been largely screwed in the KS debacle, and until that gets sorted out I don't really have any interest in supporting the game or spin-offs from it.

Whoa, those are some gross generalizations about "journalists." I think you're harboring a few misconceptions about what a real reporter does, and what it takes to get real news out. And a reporter's job is not to focus on whatever corporate or government line is being fed to him. That's called "being spun."

Anyway, it looks like the original piece of reporting from The Hollywood Reporter never mentions Fantasy Flight (although it uses the game as an illustration).

The writer who injected the "Fantasy Flight" element appears to be a film blogger who essentially reposted the news with a little personal commentary. No actual reporting there.

do you really want to start an arguement about the objectivity of the media under the obama dictatorship ?

the news has gone from objective reporting to towing the party line , and thus i would have a REAL hard time finding an article or report that doesnt drip with the reporters personal feelings and opinions , and a very few heavily obscured facts .

and NO , i dont watch fox news either as i dont have cable , but watching the press buy everything obama is selling ..................
