Beyond: Two Souls Woos Movie-Goers at Tribeca Film Festival

IGN - At this year's Tribeca Film Festival, David Cage's newest game, Beyond: Two Souls, was shown in a special event honoring the common bonds of storytelling shared between cinema and videogames. The event featured a 35 minute demo of the game followed by the reveal of a new trailer, and a Q&A session with Cage and a trio of the game's digital actors: Ellen Page, Kaddeem Hardison, and Eric Winter. "It's really the story of a life," Cage told the audience. "It's a journey in someone's life, and we'll see [Jodie Holmes, Ellen Page's character] in different moments -- when she's happy and sad -- in her life and just be with her and share a life." (Beyond: Two Souls, PS3)

I have to say, what an interesting and well written article this is. A definite approval. It mirrors exactly my sentiments on Cage and what he stands for.

He needs to be careful because $60 is quite a bit of money for consumers. Do people collect games like they do with movies? Do people play games over again as often as they do with movies? Does the game offer enough replay value? What will happen in the future if games are locked and cannot be resold or rented, will this have an impact of his type of games?

You also have to be careful about the immersion process. If you have very detailed graphics during certain scenes where the gamers input is severely limited and linear and then a lot less detailed where the gamer has full control what it does it highlight the limitations of the hardware.

I respect his vision and going a different direction than the mainstream. What I don't like is his arrogance and his demeanor towards other mainstream games. Or how he acts like he's the only one doing something nobody else is.

I don't think he was ever arrogant or disrespectful towards anyone else. It's just that a game like Heavy Rain was a HUGE bet to win and he did win it! I am sure having such a different title succeed in a world of CODs and Fifas would feel like an amazing achievement for anyone!

And i think that yes he and his team are doing things that nobody else strives for! They are going against the rules and just point out that there are a lot more diverse experiences to make in a such interesting medium as games that gamers don't have to be force fed one generic shooter after the other!
Maybe the fact that they are such passion projects comes off as arrogance but i definitely don't think that's the case!
