1st Logo (November 7, 2006)

Videos of this logo are available on Vimeo

Logo: We rapidly zoom out in a blue-orange tinted corridor, detailed with dark crates and a trail of the HBO logo's ghost. The zoom slows down, and the HBO logo is revealed as orange lights turn on in it, which then swirl around in the logo. Meanwhile, "INTERACTIVE ENTERTAINMENT" is formed by dots of light clashing into each other. A spotlight is seen moving around the logo.

Trivia: This logo is based on the ident package HBO introduced in the United States at the time.

Variant: An alternate version exists, where the HBO logo zooms out much further compared to the "INTERACTIVE ENTERTAINMENT" text, which simply fades in. This version was never used in the game, and was later uploaded to Greg Duncan's Vimeo account on June 28, 2013.

FX/SFX: Great CGI animation. Created by Greg Duncan and Bill Bergeron.

Music/Sounds: The 1996 HBO Entertainment music with extra sound effects. The alternate version uses the original music.

Availability: Seems to have appeared only once, on The Sopranos: Road to Respect for PS2.
