If you are a Hideo Kojima fan you would understand that his titles are much like movies, or at least their cut scenes are. But what if the director moved into fully fledged movie production?

During an interview with BBC Newsbeat's Steffan Powell, Hideo Kojima spoke out about how in the future his production studio would be moving towards filmmaking on the large scale. Here's what the the director said, "In the future, Kojima Productions will start making films. If you can do one thing well, then you can do everything well."

Unfortunately, Kojima didn't say exactly when movie production would begin, but he did touch on where he thinks the of gaming will go, his answer - streaming. "I think within the next few years, gaming will move on to streaming. I'm very interested in the new format of game that will appear on there and that's what I want to take on."

Essentially, Kojima believes that gaming, TV, and movies will bleed into this one medium format, combining all three of the platforms. It's certainty an interesting thought, and as games become more movie-like in quality, actors etc, and TV shows start to have viewer influence e.g Black Mirror: Bandersnatch, you can't help to think where it will all go in the next 10 years.

In other news about Death Stranding, Hideo Kojima discussed how Death Stranding is a reaction to Trump and Brexit, more on that here. There was also this hilarious Rick and Morty advertisement that showed Rick and Morty trying to eat the baby in Death Stranding, more on that here.

Jak's love for technology, and, more specifically, PC gaming, began at 10 years old. It was the day his dad showed him how to play Age of Empires on an old Compaq PC. Ever since that day, Jak fell in love with games and the progression of the technology industry in all its forms. Instead of typical FPS, Jak holds a very special spot in his heart for RTS games.
