Hasbro Family Game Night is the first installment of its eponymous game series, published by Electronic Arts. It is a mini-game collection consisting of six Hasbro board games - Battleship, Boggle, Connect Four, Sorry!, Sorry! Sliders and Yahtzee. The games all have traditional versions as well as "advanced" variants exclusive to the Family Game Night package. The mini-game collection is hosted by Mr. Potato Head.
Game Night was initially released on Wii and PlayStation 2 in late 2008, with ports to the PS3, Xbox 360 and Nintendo DS the following year. The Xbox 360 version was first released on Xbox Live Arcade on March 18, 2009 as a free hub application, with the individual games available for separate purchase at the time. The Xbox 360 port eventually saw a physical release, plus a digital localization for Japan in November of that year. In North America, the Xbox 360 version includes Scrabble along with the previous six games.
The PS3 port was released on October 29, only in North America and Europe, but only in a digital format that can be purchased and downloaded from the PlayStation Store. This release features the main six games, with the North American version also featuring Scrabble, and is presented in widescreen format with PlayStation Network support.
Ahead of the digital PS3 port and the physical Xbox 360 port's releases, Electronic Arts announced that the game will receive a sequel in October that would exclusively target Nintendo platforms (the Wii and DS). The sequel's planned Nintendo DS version instead became a port of the first game, adapting two games from each one (Battleship and Connect Four from the former and Operation and Bop It! from the latter). While the port was released on the same day as the sequel, a PC version would replace its planned DS version.
