Weta harnessed for gaming ‘first’

September 20, 2007 at 8:01 pm by xoanon  - 

Weta harnessed for gaming 'first' Wellywood’s next hit could be on the small screen, with the release today of the PlayStation 3 game Heavenly Sword. The game’s character dynamics are a product of the Weta Digital motion capture studio, which is part-owned by Peter Jackson. Jackson helped to develop the game version of his 2005 blockbuster King Kong, and Weta Digital’s graphics were used in the Lord of the Rings’ gaming equivalent. Jackson is leading the development of a series of games for PlayStation’s main rival, Microsoft, based on the Halo franchise. Halo 3, due out next week, is expected to raise the stakes in the international game market.
