This magazine doesn't mention tie ins with Prometheus, but the Playstation magazine article shows the developers mentioning it. http://www.avpgalaxy.net/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/PSM3.jpg

After reading this and other magazine articles, and seeing the survival trailer the animation stuff is worrying to me. The Aliens are not going to seem threatening if they're bumbling around environments. Sounds like the top thing Gearbox needs to fix up.

Michael Weyland? Awwww man.
"It's said that Ridley Scott only considers James Cameron's sequel as genuine canon" - Since when?

Gorilla aliens, you know, Aliens beefed up because they came out of a different host than a human, that's insane, but Boilers and Spitters and Crushers? Nah, that's all fine, huh?  8)

Still, cool article. Thanks for the scans, AVPGalaxy. Wish I could see that pilot better...at least exploring the derelict sounds interesting.

I also wish the jockey in this game isn't a tall muscular pale white bald guy but rather a mysterious creepy elephantine looking giant we knew from "Alien"

In fear of starting another 'canon' discussion I tentatively ask what makes Prometheus not canon?

1. Ruining the Space Jockey.
2. Crap Dialogue.
3. Spiffy Mr. Clean Ship.
4. Bringing in Religion into it. (Space Jockey Jesus, WTF? There are Christian fans of the Alien movies yah know)
5. Technology that is more advanced then the latter movies. Shouldn't the shit we see in Prometheus be standard issue by ALIENS?
6. Idiotic Characters.
7. Plot holes.
8. Turning the ALIEN universe from a dead nihilistic space full of mystery to something on the bordering of Star Trek.

Honestly putting Predators stuff would be just as bad as putting Prometheus stuff in here. Prometheus can stay in it's singular canon world, away from the ALIEN universe. Just like the AVP and Predator universe.

James Cameron shouldn't even be credited. Ridley Scott and HR. Giger and Gearbox Presents. That is all.
JC made a mockery of this universe (i'm not talking about the franchise here) he was the one to put the gorilla alien in the toy line and that just doesn't cut it.

"It's the first time there's ever been an original Aliens story in video game form. Ever." - Pitchford

I don't understand how such a blatantly false statement can even be made by Pitchford considering the fact that GBX worked with WayForward to make Aliens: Infestation on the Nintendo DS in 2011.

Oh yeah, and there are also these:

Aliens: Thanatos Encounter (2001) - Gameboy Color
Aliens: Extermination (2006) - Arcade
