Would you like to play a game? Howabout a bit of global, thermal, nuclear, warfare? Those were the good ole days. You remember, back in the 80’s when war was cool, and fun, and hacking was some sort of myth perpetrated by hobbyists through 2600 baud modems? If you would like to relive the glory days for a dollar (which is like .2 cents if you adjust backwards for inflation), head over to iTunes for the .99 movie of the week – WarGames (warning: iTunes link).
Here is the official description:
A young computer whizz kid accidentally connects into a top secret super-computer which has complete control over the U.S. nuclear arsenal. It challenges him to a game between America and Russia and he innocently starts the countdown to World War 3. Can he convince the computer he wanted to play a game and not the real thing ? Directed by John Badham.
WarGames will be on sale from Jul. 01, 2008 – Jul. 08, 2008 so rent it soon before the world blows up (for real, not in a movie kind of way).
