Playstation Home to get Machinima software

1 min read

Woahh... I know Kung Fu! Machinima – or machine cinema – for those of you not in the know is the use of real-time 3D graphics engine, particularly video game engines, to create computer animation. A sort of of digital puppetry that’s gained in popularity thanks in part to Rooster Teeth’s excellent Red Vs Blue – created using Bungie’s Halo video games. Machinima garnered further attention when it was heavily utilised in South Park’s Emmy award winning “Make love not Warcraft” episode.

If you’re a budding machinimatographer and a Playstation 3 owner then it seems the stars are aligning in your favour; A small development team called “Loot” will be releasing a Machinima tool for Sony’s current-gen beast that’ll make use of the assets in Playstation Home.

Of course with digital actors being so incredibly wooden and lacking expression “Loot” have just made Keanu Reeves obsolete.

“StageSet” will be available within Home this week, after which you can expect a whole bunch of “Home” made porn.
