Kojima on the Prologue Immersive Advisory Board

It seems like Kojima didn’t have enough on his plate already, as website VRDB reports that the famous developer is now on the advisory board of Prologue Immersive, a company creating virtual reality experiences. Kojima will be using his experience in gaming to assist the Coopers (Kyle -who has worked on title sequences for Metal Gear before- and Kimberly Cooper) with their VR projects. The article reads:

“Hideo Kojima, the world-renowned game creator and auteur known for pushing the boundaries of the video game medium, is now on the advisory board at Prologue Immersive. Hideo Kojima’s focus is constantly on the future. Kojima said Virtual Reality could change not only games but people’s lives and how people interact with entertainment, education and more. Together with Kimberly Cooper, co-founder and CEO of Prologue Immersive, and partner Kyle Cooper, Hideo is applying his experience in gaming to shape the future of VR.”

As for Kojima’s statement on the matter, the article reports:

“After visiting Prologue Immersive in March 2016, Kojima explains that, “I’m very excited to hear that masters of the visual arts such as Kyle Cooper and his team are taking on yet another challenge in this digital interactive media that is VR. Through VR, I am certain they will strive to connect films and video games and take us on to that bridge to the future that lies ahead. It would be my absolute pleasure to assist the Coopers on this new adventure they are embarking on”. He concludes, “We can expect a whole new world of entertainment. 2016 will surely be remembered as Year One for VR.””

  • I Kissed Her From The Shadows

    Use your tin hats everybody!

  • Basically it’s a Start-Up for VR.
    Kojima will make a game for VR. The question is “When?”

    VR is still in it’s early phases and I’m not sold yet. I mean, it’s not yet a fad like Nvidia 3D vision, kinect or 3D glasses, but I’m not sold yet at all.

    • I Kissed Her From The Shadows

      calling something a fad doesn’t mean it’s bad(Take 80s music with high percentages of disco for example)
      But VR has a high chance of being like 3D

  • I hope Kojima won’t focus on creating VR Games in the future.
    I’m not a fan of VR at all. I just don’t like it – don’t ask me why.

    • Jav

      I don’t like the vr and the 3d.

    • Alex

      Sorry

  • Matrixcity

    Can you imagine PT in VR?

    • Jav

      Yes, a wall to your left and a wall to your right.

      • Matrixcity

        And a big middle finger in front of you.

        • I Kissed Her From The Shadows

          Whoah
          That’s rude
          And on other forums and sites , they said I was venomous

          • Matrixcity

            I disagree.

          • I Kissed Her From The Shadows

            Well explain your comment
            Yeah I know explaining a joke ruins it but I have a bird brain
            If it wasn’t an insult was it humour?

          • Matrixcity

            If there is a wall to your left, a wall to your right and a big middle finger in front of you, what do you think is behind you?

          • I Kissed Her From The Shadows

            Lisa the pizza girl
            Hey Lisa don’t forget to add pepperoni and that BJ

          • Matrixcity

            VR porn is gonna be great. LOL

          • I Kissed Her From The Shadows

            Hahahahahahahahahhaha
            It already exists lmao
            Unfortunately most of its users are edgy teenagers
            Like me?
            Kidding

  • Gatsu

    It would be cool to try a VR game in future, especially some horror game.

    • Yeah. Horror games I can see working in VR, but until the technology will improve… Not excited.

      to begin with, VR as a device should be 100% wireless.

      • Matrixcity

        You have to start somewhere. I don’t see how Kojima helping the medium start out could hurt. As long as it’s not all he focuses on.

    • Venom_Sina

      A high-quality horror game can kill the gamer.Cause:Heart attack 🙂

      • moto hellogoto

        If you’re old and have heart problems then yes.

        • Alex

          Headsets will be broken, heart attacks too.

  • Venom_Sina

    I don’t know why,but I’m not a fan of VR.I can’t communicate with the device.I always prefer the old-school settings.
    I’m curious about VR devices.Will we see them more in the future (in games),or they will become another Playstation Move/Kinect?To be honest,those two took some heavy dust back in the day and right now,no one is going to clean them up,lol.

    VR is obviously in good hands with true game-developers. The medium clearly inspire Boss. Remember that Carmack slam is own id-Software (bought by bethesda) door because they would not let him achieve Doom4 in VR. The point is that talented developers truly seek for the ultimate gaming experience for their games. Now Hideo is a Rolls Royce for helping them to find at least the most entertaining directions. ;D

  • Lex Radu

    That’s great news!

    There are reasons Hideo is compared to Tarantino, this is one of them!

    “Through VR, I am certain they will strive to connect films and video games and take us on to that bridge to the future that lies ahead.”

    This is what I’ve been saying since I first tried VR. It truly is the future and will be the key drive to unifying games and movies into one seamless experience.
