According to Jean-Francois Boivin, associate producer on Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, in the future video games and moves will merge into one entertainment medium.
"I think that eventually video games, movies and the like will all be one and same medium," Boivin told VideoGamer.com. "I can very easily see an Assassin's Creed movie in the future, or a Spider-Man movie, like Spider-Man 9, and you put that stuff in your console and then you just watch the movie. Or perhaps right off the bat, do you want to watch Spider-Man 9, or do you want to play Spider-Man 9? And it's the same quality, the same thing."
It's a future already creeping into the present said Boivin, pointing to Quantic Dream's Heavy Rain as one such experience.
"I can see that happening, and we're starting to have a glimpse of the possibility with games like Heavy Rain - which, I have to say, changed my life."
