Spielberg Does Video Games
Seeing that Steven Spielberg is now getting into video games makes me think that maybe I should get into movie making. Just kidding! But seriously, Spielberg really is getting into video games.
Beginning this year, Spielberg will work directly with EA’s development teams to offer storytelling, design and artistic visualization of the new games. Details of the games, or the financial structure of the deal, have not been given.
EA will own the intellectual properties and the game franchises will be developed, published and distributed worldwide by EA.
That’s certainly a sweet deal for EA. Mr. Spielberg doesn’t retain the rights to the properties he’ll help develop. I’m really curious how well Mr. Spielberg’s talents will translate to the video game world. Obviously, he is a master of story telling. How well will that translate into a PS3 game?
