A 'Breaking Bad' VR Experience In The Works For Playstation

Playstation is working with Sony Pictures and Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan to make a "VR Experience", president of Sony Pictures Interactive told Polygon in a recent interview. 

“We're working with Sony Pictures and Vince Gilligan to bring a Breaking Bad VR experience out. I don't know what it's going to be. No idea what it's going to do, but they're very keen at looking at virtual reality as the new medium. It's not an extension. 

It's not an upgrade of a current medium. It's a brand new platform and movie directors and film directors are going to have to learn new disciplines in order to tell their story in that kind of a world where the viewer's got completely free agency on where they go, where they look, what they see.”

Layden could not comment further on what the experience would be and whether or not it would be new content or previously recorded content. 

“We brought in 10 or a dozen show runners from Hollywood,” he said. “You know, all the big name guys. You know, Ron Moore from Galactica and [Frank] Darabont from The Walking Dead. We had Vince Gilligan come up, you know, the guy who did Breaking Bad. 

To each individual, when they took the headset off, they each shouted an expletive and followed that with, ‘Wow, this just blows up narrative. How do we, how do we create in this kind of world where I can't point the camera and make you look where I want you to look or see what I want you to see.’ But then, of course, you've got their creative juices flowing, if you will.

Sony Pictures is doing a lot of work in the non-game space.”

No matter what the experience may be, I think we can all agree it's going to be awesome. We'll update this article as more information is revealed.
