Jackson embraces next-gen potential
After the critical and commercial success of Peter Jackson's King Kong videogame tie-in, with which the Oscar winning director had unprecedented involvement, the director has spoken of the vast potential offered by the next-generation of consoles.
"I definitely see improved graphics and sound as continuously positive attributes for consideration among the Hollywood community," Jackson enthused in an interview with Yahoo. "Actors will look more 'life-like' in HD and the sound continues to get closer to the theatrical movie experience - this makes it easier to provide sound effects, artwork, and talent when you, as a filmmaker, know that the final game will be a strong representation of the film."
If only other notable Hollywood figures were as keen to ensure high-quality game interpretations of their films... but then Jackson is a self-confessed keen gamer, and even before the launch of the King Kong game was vocal in his praise for Ubisoft designer Michel Ancel, the mastermind behind the Kong title. Jackson also stated that they were discussing the possibility of future Kong games at present, but that no decision had been made. He also declared development of the game alongside the film as a success, and one he would consider repeating on future projects.
