Peter Jackson, best known for his work on the Lord of the Rings Trilogy has tied the knot with Microsoft Games. From reports he is contracted to work on two games for MS including a new Halo game with Bungie. The other series of games is a brand-new concept and aimed at bringing in new gamers. Well, if the games match up to the epic scope of LOTR then I'm sure we're all in for much gaming pleasure and hours of entertainment.

With Jackson's ability to appeal to mass audiences I think this is a great move for Microsoft and may even win over some of the naysayers to their camp. Or, at least, quiet the critics. Of course, failure is always a possibility as well and who will suffer more, the makers or the gamers? Normally in that situation it is us, the gamers, who suffer through endless sequels and prequels to a game that just wasn't that good to begin with. Maybe they will hit upon something new and unique or maybe they will rehash all that has come before. Jackson believes in storytelling and that the technology is there to tell an immersive story in a gaming environment. Sure I believe that. I played Oblivion for 120 hours, I was immersed at times. Though, in the end, it was rather an uninteresting result (see my review of Oblivion .) If we're lucky maybe they will ask the gamers what we would like to see, heh, yeah right.

Of course, I dread the day when they announce the "Premium" edition of the games that span 3 DVDs and require you to sign a blood contract with the Lord of Mordor himself in order to purchase it.

Does anyone else find it strange that the man who brought the story of The Rings to the silver screen will be working on yet another story about a big Ring? Perhaps an obsession is forming.
