With Tuesday's announcement of a CGI "Sly Cooper" movie, past evidence suggesting "Jak & Daxter" and ModNation Racers" are being made into films are starting to become a real possibility.
No one cares about Modnation Racers. Jak & Daxter though? I hope so! Ratchet and Sly got movies so why not Jak & Daxter? I'd love to see all these animorphic mascot make a comeback on the PS4 too!
I'm pretty sure that's a given. A game will most likely come along the way when each of the film releases. It's smart of them to bring these type of franchises to the big screen and surprised it took them this long. In a way it's simply to lure in the new generation into becoming part of the all ready existing franchises. My small nephew would love these movies.
I'd rather had Mod Nation Racers and Jak and Daxter to be the next Games rather than Ratchet and Clank and Little Big Planet. Maybe a new Mod Nation but something else than racers. RPG or Action/Adventure.
animations like the dead space one's would be cool for filler stuff atleast :3
I really like the Animated Dead Space movies. And the CGI resident evils were the better than the Hollywood counterparts. Games are great for CGI movies. I mean, everyone loves cutscenes right?
Goodness, I want Jak & Daxter 4 so badly. Make it happen Naughty Dog!
Modnation Racers? Uhhh... Why?
I'd love that, but can you PLEASE get away from Rainmaker Entertainment?!? Sly will bomb. Heavenly Sword will bomb. Ratchet & Clank will bomb. These guys don't know how to make a decent movie.
Escape from Planet Earth was a good first big film. It wasn't perfect nor Pixar/Dreamworks quality but it was still better than some I've seen from better known/established companies. I think they have potential to make them work but hopefully Sony/Devs have some input as think a lot of film/game collaborations would be better if they didn't seemingly just sell the license and accept whatever for it.
I know a couple of people who enjoyed it and I certainly wouldn't trash your opinion, but I did not like it at all.
True as plenty of movies I've liked/disliked that others don't agree with. Same goes for studios and their projects. I would had loved a bigger company of course but still have my hopes up.
Excuse me guys, but your respect for each others opinions is freaking me out. Lets not forget this is N4G! :) On topic.... I've not seen a film by Rainmaker, but from the Escape from Planet Earth trailer I can see why they got the Ratchet gig. Jak & Daxter is one of my favourite game series, so I'm not sure I'd want to see it made in to a film. Would much rather ND made a new game for PS4 - that would be cinematic enough for me.
I was curious why they are not utilizing Sony Animation to do it? That studio has been picking up tons of steam as of late, and do a really great job of making movies.
I think part of it is they are trying to compete more with big cgi companies and their bigger scripts/films. Game/film collaborations after all are still risky and probably think their higher ups would rather deal with other work than taking it on themselves. Licensing Sony products to smaller companies is probably safer in other words. I always sort of hoped/expected they would keep it in house bit more though. Sony after all has hands in everything needed to make it themselves.
Whoa. Why all the disagrees?
I think r&c will do fine but sly I ddnt hear about until today and heavenly is just gnna bomb like u said
Very disappointed with how Sony has treated Jak and Daxter. I'm glad its not getting a sequel every year, but we haven't seen anything out of the franchise in almost a decade.
Well I guess they had a PSP game in2010 which I enjoyed a bit not as much as the original trilogy.
LoL at Modnation Racers. I dont know about Jak, not a lot of potential imo. Im excited for Rathchet. They already have well established and funny characters plus a ton of action. It has potential.
Jak and daxter I can see...but modnation? Ridiculous. I'm not a big fan of the lego movie either...
Haha a movie about some racing game? Nah... On the J&D side though... HELL YES PLZ!
Jak & Daxter can be a movie but ModNation Racers is better as a cartoon.
OMFG please Jak and Daxter!!!
