Why Pixar staffers decided to start their own gaming company on the side

It may seem strange that a group of individuals working at Hollywood’s most respected animated movie studio would want to spend their spare time making games, but Steel Wool co-founder Andrew Dayton says that it’s the norm for Pixar employees to have a side project.

Exactly, this doesn't seem odd in the slightest.

Who cares why? If they put as much care and love into their games as they do their movies that aren't Cars 2, I'm all for it.

Don't judge because of my avatar, i'll try not to be biased, but truthfully:

Pixar is to Film like Bungie is to Games.

Look at their track record of AAA titles. It's all widely accepted quality. And if you literally look at their studio and the way they operate, it mirrors Pixar's workplace very closely.

Bungie has one successful IP, Pixar has numerous.......and ONI wasn't a good game.

I don't think it's fair to compare when Bungie only claim to fame is Halo....and that has ye to be replicated

Or Naughty Dog :P But yeah, Pixar knows the stuff, and I think they would succeed if they tried to go and make a game.

Bungie? No.

The closest analog to Pixar in the games industry would probably be Valve. Valve is the place where all the top talent in the industry strives to be.

That's subjective, Panda.

This will be interesting, especially since many people consider Nintendo the Pixar of video games
ScubaSteve1  +   638d ago
you're thinking of Blizzard

I have never once heard anybody say that.

I hear it a ton at IGN

Actually
When I think of the "Pixar of videogames", I think of Insomniac's Ratchet and Clank.
RetrospectRealm  +   638d ago
Lmao IGN

This could be pretty interesting!

we need pixar in kingdom hearts!

Good...maybe. Pixar has been slipping lately.
secretcode  +   638d ago
Wreck-It Ralph says otherwise.
MidnytRain  +   638d ago
Wreck-it Ralph was not a Pixar film...
bratman  +   638d ago
wreck-it ralph was made by disney, not pixar. :)

Not sure why I got disagrees...

Cars 2 was terrible.
Brave was good, but nowhere close to Pixar-quality.

I have hope for Monsters University, but still. They slipped.
