Background

MGM Interactive is the software division of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, formed in 1994. Its first video game was Wirehead for Sega CD and their last release was the Rocky game Rocky Balboa. The name would be phased out after 2005 and future games based on MGM licenses would use the standard MGM logos.

(September 1995-March 20, 2007)

Logo: Same as the standard MGM logo, but with the words "MGM INTERACTIVE" in a Trajan Pro font on the bottom with lines above and below it respectively.

Variants:

  • On games for the Game Boy and Nintendo DS, the logo is still.
  • Starting in the mid-2000s, the logo was given an enhanced look.
  • On 007: The World is Not Enough for Nintendo 64, the print logo in front of a white background is used.
  • On Blown Away, the logo is centered.
  • On RoboCop (2003), only the last part of the logo is seen.

Technique: Live-action.

Music/Sounds: Leo's re-dubbed roar from 1985.

Music/Sounds Variant:

  • On Wirehead, Leo's roar is in a lower tone.
  • The James Bond games From Russia with Love and Everything or Nothing as well as the Rocky game Rocky Balboa have the 1995 roar track.

Availability: Common.

  • The animated version appears on most games by the company. It first appeared on Wirehead for Sega CD and alongside 007 games (except for GoldenEye 007 and James Bond 007, as both games were published and distributed by Nintendo), this logo also appeared on Machine Hunter, WarGames: Defcon 1, Rocky, The Great Escape, RoboCop (2003) and Rocky Legends.
  • The still version is seen on Nintendo 64, Game Boy Color, Game Boy Advance and Nintendo DS games from the company.
  • Even though the logo is seen on the box, Tiny Tank doesn't have this logo due to the publishing rights being sold to Sony Computer Entertainment.
