It's been said
that the ultimate user interface would be "a little box with a single red button; when pushed it would give you exactly what you need exactly when you need it." We'd like to think that this was the inspiration that led two ex-Naughty Dog staffers to create game studio Big Red Button Entertainment
. Or maybe their inspiration was a little less high-minded
. We don't know.
Anyway, the new studio has vowed to become the "United Artists of games" (much like EA
) by creating "original character based intellectual properties for cross platform and cross media development." OK, so that doesn't really mean anything, but with titles like Crash Bandicoot
, Jak & Daxter
and Uncharted: Drake's Fortune
to the creators' credit, we're still excited about the possibilities. Hey, maybe they should design some games for the Buzz controller
. Y'know ... because it has a big red button ...? No? Not funny? FINE! WHO ASKED YOU?!
